SCIE.NCE. Flreproofingit, Solittliotsn. For rendering fabrico, wood, -and other in flammable objects li-eproof, a writer in La. :Nature recommends borotungastto of eudal, a salt whichhe states has never Iltlherln been employed for the purpose. It is made by di?. solving boric aoid in a hot solution of tutoS. state of soda. Objects impreglnated with this solutution are rendered incombustible. The solution gives off no deleterioue gae, while ammonical salts, phoephato of ammotis anud salta of phosphorus render the air irroepir able. Borotungsste of soda in solution is also said to possess valuable atiesptjec propertier, and has been used with the greatest success in diptheria, for dressing wounds, and as a wash in eases where an antiseptic is needed. The solution has no odor, but its teste ii* bitter.
Dairy Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894
Dairy Jtlets. The testimony accumulates that it ia bet tor to feed miloh cows but twice per day, as it i alloeged that well-fed cows can put in their time resting and remasticating their food more profitably than to spend it in any other way. The man who thinks a cow onght to be cantering all over a half-bare pasture to get a livelihood doubtless does not believe the above. If a man owns high.prioed, valuable lands, that will grow corn, he need not worry him-n self much whether his farm is naturally adapted to grazing, or growing graes, or not. The land that will grow corn wellt will alo grow elover, rye, barley and oats ; and with them the ormner is in a condition to make milk, eheese and butter choalpcr per pound than esa be done ons the pastures. Two 800 pound cows can be fed all the forage needed for a whole year, and it will grow on an acre, if highly fertiliezd and planted with corn. \Vhre are thile pulurea, permnent " or otherwise, that ever did or ever will do thatt It is a ...

CASUAL JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894
CASUAL JOTTINGS. [By FLYAwaY.] To the uninitiated it seems " consider able of a pity," as the Yankees say, that the prize conummittee of the Agricelt:ral Society shouldl have decided to eliminate the high jumping contest it the forth coming Spring Show. At first blush, no doubt, high jumping seems to have very remote connection with agricultur:.e, bt there are other issues to be considered. Agricultural Shows are made st.'cessfIl principally by two elements-the charnc ter nminelr and variety of exhibits, and size of the attendance. Gate money is a nimst important consideration, and, be tlhe exhibits as good as they may (and in this district there is no doubt of the excellent quality of these) still there is neeled the attendance, not only of the techlnially interested, but also of the outside public to secure the very objects aimed at by the promoters of such ex hibitions. At d there can be no doubt that the value of an offer of good prize money for high-jumping, which means the att...
ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894
ROUND THE WORLD. --- t-+- The splendid stercopticon entertain ment begun by professor F. W. Muller in the Tatura Mechanics' Hall on Wed nesday the 8th inst., was contiuced nightly, and brought to a conclusion rlast Tuesday evening. The six exhibi tions proved an intellectual treat not to be surpassed in any city of the world, but the attendances were not at all conm imonsurate with their merits. The first and second night's entertainment have already been noticed in these columns. On the third evening the exhibitor followed the wanderings of the Israelites I in the wilderness on to Jerusalem, where views of the holy city in the timen of its I grandeur were shown. The events pre ceding the Crucifixion wore splendidly depicted, and the whole sublime subject treated in the most masterly manner. Leaving the birthplace of Christianity, Mr Muller took his audience to India, - nd eaitward to Hong Kong. Beautiful t illustrations of Indian and Chinese I scenery, buildings and people were giv...

TATURA CHORAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894
TATURA CHORAL SOCIETY. On Wednesday evening last the Tatura Choral Society gave its second grand concert in the Mechacl ics' Hall, when a imoderately large attendance was present, especially in the front part of the hall (due perhaps to the fact that -nccording to the programtme-these seats were charged at the moderate sum of one shilling, while the unfortunates who occupied the back benches were mulcted in double this amount. Before the performance commenced the presi- * dent, Mr Maxwell, came forward, and in w felicitous language apologised. for the absence of Mr M'Cahuan, and requested o the indulgence of the audlience on behalf of several singers who, owing to the tun- a kindliness of the elements, had developed affections of the throat. Meyerbeer's s "\VWar Song " formed the initiatory itemn of the evening, and though some of I the parts were somewhat lacking, owing r no doubt to the above mentioned cause, there was a precision about itt tat ple sed a the ear.
