CURING THE POTATO SCAB. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
CURING THE POTATO SCAB. Every grower is aware of the much higher price that can eto obtained for nice clean skinned potatoes compared with those having a rough scabby appearance. Now, it appears that this complaint can be prevented by soaking the seed in a solution of corrosive sublimate. A cor respondent of the "Rural New Yorker" asserts that it is only a question of a few years when every farmer will consider corrosive sublimate as necessary to the growing of a good potato crop as good soil and good culture, He relates that he planted last season fifty-two acres, and all the seed, with the exception of thirty three bushels, was soaked in the sublimate solution for an hour and a half. The result was forty-nine acres of smooth, even-sized potatoes, while the three acres not soaked yielded less than half the crop, axd the tubers were small, scabby and ill shaped. He gives the following instruc tion as to how to soak the seed:-,- In using the corrosive sublimate every farrIne will hiv...

VICTORIAN FIBRE IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
VICTORIAN FIBRE IN ENGLAND. A collection of Victorian fibres was sent some time ago to the Imperial Institute from the Botanical Gardens at Melbourne, where they had been grown under the superintenaence of Mr. W. R. Guilfoyle, thedirector, with a view to showing'that the soil and climate of Victoria are adapted to the growth of many non-indigenous fblore gplants. Of these fibres a few have een chemically examined in the research laboratory of the Imperial Institute, and the results, it is stated, fully confirm the expectation of Mr. Guilfoyle as to the suitability of Victoria for the production of fibre yielding plants, Agaire Karotto is shown to be quite equal to A. Americana, while A. Mexicana and A. Rhumpii lare slightly inferior. The fibre of A. Americana, when made into ropes, is stronger than Russian hemp, and paper manufactured from it is tougher than Bank of England note paper. Yucca Glouassa, another of the samples yIelds a fibre nearly equal in value to those of the agaves...
ARE MAGPIES PESTS? SWOOPING DOWN AMONG THE FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
ARE MAGPIES PESTS P SWOOPING DOWN AMONG TIHE FOWLS. -0 Magpies are becoming quite a pest in the Broadford district, and owing to their destructive proclivities must be termed an enemy to the farmer. These birds are to be seen in large numbers in this part, and a farmer says that when his fowls are being fed they swoop down in flocks and drive the fowls away from their feed and eat it themselves. One morning there were fully 800 magpies busily devouring the food meant for the fowls, and the farmer was so exasperated that he fired on them, and in three shots he says he killed 15 of the pests. Grain has been sown and as soon as the blade appears the birds dig out the grains and eat them, the blade being an indicator as to where to dig, and the consequence is that the land will need to be re-sown. Some time back a controversy was carried on between farmers and naturalists in town, the latter stating that all the birds sub mitted to them for examination had no trace of grain in their " g...
VICTIMISING A CURATE. PAWNING THE GIFTS OF CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
VICTIMISING A CURATE. PAWNING THE GIFTS OF CHARITY. ---o A despicable scoundrel, named Thomas Hornby, who has a long list of previous convictions, was charged at the Fitzroy Court with larceny as a bailee of a sewing-machine, a presser's iron, and three surplices, the whole valued at £8. The circumstances of the alleged offence showed that the prisoner had been guilty of base in gratitude. Early in February last HIornby called upon Mr. C. A. Barrett, curate of St. Mark's Church of Eng land, Fitzroy, and told a pitiful tale of poverty, and said that his wife and family were starving, and that one of his children was dangerously ill. After making some inquiries into the case, the family were provided with food until the 28th of the same month. On that date Hornby again waited on Mr. Barrett, and said that being a tailor by trade he could obtain work from clothing factories to make up at home if he had a sewing-machine and a presser's iron. To enable the man to support his family Mr. B...
FLAX CULTIVATION. MR. J. J. WILSON AND HIS EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
FLAX CULTIVATION 1B 3. J. WILSONi AD HIS EXPERIENCES. ---o- No man in Victoria has worked harder to bring the advantages of flax growing prominently under the notice of Victorian landholders than Mr. J. J. Wilson, of Melbourne. In the Mlelboure weekly papers, and in some rovincial journals also, contributions on flax growng from Mr. Wilson have always been welcomed, so that his name has become as much ahoasehold word amongst all interested in flax growing as that of the Wilson amongst the dairy farmers. The subject of this notice is 43 years of age, and was born at Moyglass near the historical town of Enniskillen, Ireland. His ancestors on both sides were farmers and graziers. In his native county, and adjoining ones, farming is con ducted on sound and correct principles. Much of the knowledge that has to be acquired here at agricultural colleges is there imparted from father to son. The infiuence of agricultural advance ment permeates the whole community, hence in that part of Irel...

COOLGARDIE. Mr, Moran, the Member for Cool gardie, made some very strong and timely remarks onthe flotation of West Australianminesin London. He says he knows of cases in which mines had been bought from the vendors for £2000 or £8000, and sold by brokers to Investors in London for £20,000 or £0,000, the said brokers pocketing dierence. lie does not believe that one tenth of the capital said to have been invested in West Australian mines has ever reached the shores of the colony! be Earl of Rosebery ha granted a list pension to the widow of the late enDr. C.

£10,000 A SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
£10,000 A SIDE. THE MARQUIS AND HIS SON. The Marquis of Queensberry back ing himself to fight his son for a stake of £10,000 is more picturesque than ever. The noble Marquis does not satisfy everybody, but we may thank God for his opportune robustness in a matter of considerable contemporary interest. The opinions of the Marquis on sport of all sorts have always been worth having, and it will be grateful news to the wheelman that Queens berry is not only of them and with them but is "an enthusiastic cyclist." He has lately expressed himself to an interviewer on the subject :-" Take riding. No man was ever fonder of riding or of horses than I have been, but the only riding worth having is what you get in racing or in following hounds. Park riding and that sort of thing is not worth talking about. Well, I got tired of riding, and I have given it up, but from my experience of riding and cycling, I say that cycling is the better and more useful exercise. I know nothing like it to keep o...
CURRENT EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
CURRENT EVENTS, (Br TIa O'SHANTERs). I was very glad indeed to witness the second performance of "Our Boys " here, for good as some of our local comedians were on the first occasion, they were even better on the second. When I enquired whether the undertaking was successful from the point of view taken by the hospital treasurer, I was told that it was just what they expected. This was some what eqivocal, and may mean that a splendid financial result was ob tained, or it may mean that while the critical public of Warragul come in hundreds, as they do, to witness fifth rate actors from the metropolis, send half their audience home after the first act, they mysteriously absent them selves when a company of good locals attempt to assist an institution at our own doors that is badly in want of funds. For a time I could not account for the absence of so many of the actual hospital committee, but when I reflected that self-denial week had just started, I concluded that these worthy gentlem...

=-e x -T-AT CO-O EPJ T Clear Statement of What AIseiolutely Er oentiai to Its Secess. I believe that where a private cream ery has been sacessful a co-operativo creamery can also be mado so, but cer tain things are absolutely necessary. First-The stockholders must have a good working knowledoge of the dairy business: they munst hrave good cows and take care of them and feed them. Second-Enough milk should be guar anteed from the start to ran the cream ery to its capacity. The way to secure the milk is to take in as stockholders only farmers who mill: their cons, not beginning business until enough cows ars secured. Third-A man who canmako first class butter and cheese and who understands everything connected with the creamery business, from weighing the milk, tak ing samples and testing it to shipping the products, conducting the necessary corprespondenco and keeping the books. No matter how well the patrois do their part, if the man who makes up the milk does not understand his bus...
