W._ B. Mather, was held, when an address was given by the Rev. H. T. Burgess upon ' The pre sent state of the Methodist union movement throughout Australasia.' Mr. Buugesh stated that Methodist union had become a part of his religion. To him the question »vas a perfectly religious one. He believed ?that concentration of Christian service would be for the glory of G-od. Methodist Union meant concentration of Christian service, therefore, Methodist Union was for .God's glory. He did not know how long. ago it was .since this union question was first talked about, but Tie did know that in 1881 the Australasian Wesleyan General Conference in Adelaide passed a resolution to favorably con aider any well-devised scheme for Methodist Union.

This had had the effect of dragging the union out of the hole they were then in owing to lack of support, and as a director he thanked the farmers of tho district for the assistance they had ren dered in time of need. With regard to the present and immediate past the market had never been lower than during the past 12 months ; and ...

The half-yearly meeting of tho Adelaide Chamber of Commerce was held at the office of the secretary, Montefiore Chambers, on Wednesday afternoon. The president (Mr. L. A.

The half-yearly synopsis of proceedings contained the following : — The London Chamber of Commerce wrote calling the chamber's attention to the fact that hides were seriously damaged by injudicious branding, and your committee communicated with the Pastoralists' Asso ciation on the subject. The committee considered that the State Advances Sill was unjust and would probably be hurtful. After carefully reviewing the whole question thev called a special general meeting of the chamber, which was largely attended, and eventually a deputation waited upon the Treasurer and stated their arguments in opposition.

FRUIT-GATHERING DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895

FRUIT-GATHERING DEVICE. Ab an aid toward the careful gathering of the fruit from the orchard we give the following illustration of a handy little article which has been devised for that purpose, and is placed on the market by Mr. F. E. Clotter, Euston-road. London. It consists of three steel fingers, which can be opened out or closed at the will of the ope rator, and being padded inside and covered with the best soft Para rubber no injury can be done or even the slightest mark made on the most tender and delicate fruit. The implement is put on the market either as tinned steel or as Bilker-plated, the prices being 7s. 6d. and 10s. 6d. respectively. In order to use it it is fixed on a long pole with cord attached, so that the trouble of climbing up a series of garden steps and the fre quent shifting of them ia avoided, as the fruit can be reached from the ground on which the eratherer stands. The artificial hand will gather fruit of all sizes, largo or small, and from any outofthe wa...

Horticulture. GARDENING FOR THE WEEK. THE PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895

^Qtiimltnxt. GARDENING FOR THE WEEK, The-Plaots. Floweh Garden.— Dahlias, lilies, tuberoses, and tigridias may be planted ; the soil' for these should be made very rich, with a good quantity of sand about the roots. The surface should also be well mulched and provision made for supplying them with plenty of water all through the summer. Tender annuals may still be planted, but they will require a little attention for_ e\ few days in watering and shadini? : it is not ton late to row another batch of these, provided they can be liberally watered. As early flowering bulbs are lifted they maybe replaced with a variety of bedding plants. Many tall-growing herbaceous plants will require stakes and these should be placed before the flower spikes are fully grown, to prevent breakage; gladioli require particular attention in this respect. Now is the time to bud the ornamental nectarine and peach ; the common almond makes a good etock for these. As they are of a. pendant habit the buds should...

-^quatic0. YACHTING. THE OPENING DEMONSTRATION. The opening demonstration in connection with the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron took place on Saturday afternoon, and tho weather was most favorable. There was a spanking Bouth-westerly breeze, before which the many yachts engaged in the evolu tions scudded along the water like things of life, or responsive to the helm bowled across the waves on the ix-rt and starboard ta^kn. Though not cold the wiud was sufficiently exhilarating to make things exceedingly pleasant for tlie occupants of the little vessels and their many friends on board of the tugboat Yatala. Bunting was freely displayed on some of the vessels in port. In ac cordance with arrangements most of the yachts were under-weigh and cruising about in the vicinity of the steamers' wharf at 2.30 p.m., but it was some minutes later before the signal-yacht Magic, with the commodore, Captain Cresweil, and a large party of yachting enthusiasts on board, was hauled out of her r...

Tho company . is numerically a strong one, and in addition to several well known performers who have previously visited Adelaide, embraces not a few whose faces are as yet unfamiliar, but whose recep tion on Saturday evening was none the less hearty on that account. The curtain rose on a pretty stage set, in which gaily-colored and fantastically 6haped lanterns lent an air of verisimilitude to the ' Continental Carnival' of the programme.

This was not the case, however, as* the scoring generally was low, the greater number of runs coming from unexpected sources.
