SEED-SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

SEEB-SOWIKG. Raising flowers from seed has become such an important operation to the gardener, and is, moreover, so generally adopted as the best and quickest means of obtaining a good stock of many tender and hardy plants, that perhaps a few hints relative to the mode of mowing and after treatment, go as to secure their successful germination, may be of service at the present time. By means of careful selection, com bined with the persevering labors of the itjbridist, many plants have been so greatly improved, both in the habit of the plant and the quality of the blootr-B, that seedlings may cocfiaently be ielied 'opon to yield a large per centage of good flowers of theic respective kinds. Therefore, propagation by seed is .almost ectirely depended upon now, ia the pl-i:e of rsMcg plants from cuttings as feedlicgs in variably possess a more robust habit and con stitution than the stock propagated by the older methods, Seed growing, too, is now quite a fice art, being eo carefully c...

The PtiiNS. wTuiSSa FldweeGasden.— Plant out hardy annuals, giving them sufficient water to settle the earth about the roots, and sow more of these for succession ; sow also biennials and perennials ; the earlier these are sown the stronger ' are the plants produced. The late rains will have caused the border plants to grow freely, producing good shoots for cuttings, and the pre sent time should ba taken advantage of, as these first cuttings are the best for propagation, especially those of petunias, verbenas, cupheas, pelargoniums, and the herbaceous calceolarias. Still plant out BUccesBional bulbs, providing a deeD rich Brill far triflm ? tivunintho narfnoiiinriir will not do well unless grown under these con ditions.

ON THE USE OF NITROGENOUS MANURES. From a series of investigations by Prof&uor ?anl Wagner, director of tbe Agricultural Research Station at Darmstadt, endeavors have beea made to assist in the solution ol those questions on manuring which relate to tbe nutrition of cultivated plants with nitro gen. 1. Does tbe application of nitrogenoua manure produce an increased yield of all crops?— Different plants were manured with varying proportions of nitrogen per acre. Tha yields of cereal crops— carrots, potatoes, tur nips, flax, rape, and grass —showed a oonsider ftble Increase, and the grains were exactly pro similar soils no extra yields of peas, red clover, lupines, vetches, and Incem wets obtained, proving that leguminous plants obtain their nitrogen from sources inaccessioU to the cereals, potatoes, and turnips, &c ; and these supplies are so copious that under normal conditions of cultivation the plants do not need manuring with nitrogenous salts.

THE BRITISH BLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

THE ERITISa BLOCKS. ' You ask me about the British Blocks, of wbicb company I am a director. Well, I am perfectly satisfied with the work which thay have done* and tbe manner in which the n;ine has be6a developed. The only circum stance tbat one cs.n express dissatisfaction about is tbat the mine should have taken so much longer in opening out than was at first anticipated. This is, I believe, accounted for by the difficulty of getting labor and the delays arising from the detention of machinery. The future possibilities of the mine promise to be enormous, and the appearance of the woikicEs at the nresent time is hichlv satisfactory. ' As the development of the mine proceeds I believe that results will follow quite equal to if not exceeding the fondest anticipa tions of the promoters. There can be no doubt that under the new management the very most will be made of tbe mine. The public will be reassured and the value of the pro perty in my opinion is largely enhanced by the fact tha...

JOHN DILLON. A man whom Irishmen delight to honor arrived in South Australia on Thursday. John Dillon, as one of the most uncompro mising of Irish patriots, and one who. haa fought and suffered for the Home Rule cause, is the Idol of his countrymen. His estimable personal qualities have extorted praise even from political opponents, and his evident sincerity and perfect honesty have commanded the resDect of those who would on no account admit the propriety of his views. He is an Interesting example of the combination of physical frailty with extreme mental vigor and activity. Still a comparatively young man, he is fragile and delicate in appearance, his manner is quiet and even melancholy, and his voice is gentle and monotonous In tone. Yet, with physical attributes that naturally suggest a dislike of all violence and a desire for ease and repose, his slight form Is animated by a fiery spirit, 'swift, tamelesB, and proud.' No member of the Nationalist party in the House of Commons h...

%\t ftjpttkk SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1889. LORD KINTORE. The arrival on Thursday of Lord and Lady Kintore, with their family and suite, is an event of more than ordinary interest. Under any circumstances South Australians would be prepared to give a loyal and cordial welcome to the repre sentative of her Majesty, but many things conspired on this occasion to infuse into the reception special warmth and fervor. To begin with, no one is entirely ineeneible to the influence and claims of rank, and his lordship holds a higher social position than has been enjoyed by any previous Governor or this colony. The respect which is spontaneously accorded to him on that account is rendered all the more easy and genuine by the conviction that he worthily sustains his hereditary honors. He belongs to aclasa or section of the British aristocracy that 1b not content merely to inherit titles and wealth, but is mindful of its responsibili ties. Many of the junior members of the House of Lords have shown s...

To do this effectually, arrangements were maae to purchase the product of all the different mines in tbe world, so that by having control of the quantity of metal produced they could also control the price.
