Another Use for Paspalum. A correspondent, writing to a Sydney paper, says : — 'Seeing that sparks from- railway engines start a good number of bush fires, I would . suggest as a remedy that the Railway' Commissioners sow the land ad jacent to their lines with paspalum dilatatum, a grass that withstands the hottest summer and- severest drought, and keeps green when all other grasses (including couch) are brownand dry with the heat of sum. men r bave~ this grass ?growing at present, and have had a number of 'years' experience with it, and: say it would almost -be impossible to - burn }t oB at present, notwithstand ing Represent great heat TwouH stronglyAdvlseifarnietstd plant pasV polum 'dilatatnm around their hotne steads ;.Vy: eb doing ' they avoukL save themselves losses through bush fires.' ?'????'
Cheap Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 January 1905
Cheap Irrigation. A dairy ;n in nim:d Rii-ars near Tumut has installed an irrigation plant — a 3 fcp. engine, with a cen trifugal pump — on the bank of the Gilmore Creek, at the cost of ..£130. The water is lifted 10ft., and run through galvanised iron pipes a distance of 20 yards, then dropped into a wooden trough, to prevent corrosion of the ground, and sent in cut drains over the paddock.' As an experiment, a small area of 10 acres only is being treated, but if successful, Mr. Rivers intends to irrigate another 10 acres in the Fame paddock on the flat. The land grows maize for cow feed, soja bean, cow pea, feed pumpkins, and cow. melons. The upkeep -of engine costs one pint of kerosene per hour, and the capacity is 10,000 gallons' per hour. The plant will work all day without attention.
SELF-SOWN FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
5ELF-SOW2* FLOWERS. Where Nature is allowed a free hand l.e., where uie plants flower aud scatter the seeds around, and they ire permitted to prow —the plants are invariably stronger than when sown by thshand cf man. There ia more than one reaeon for thia. In the first place tbe seeds scattered direct from (he plant are new and gotod, but those purchased are not always so. Again, Nature sows when jne grouna is in the best possible condition for their reoeption, so far ns tbe season ia concerned, and when this happens a spring display of annual* ii -ensured. The best - e 'mf0* k V *-0® aa tbe new crop ia ripe. There are in many gardens now more self-sown plant* than ucu%l, or, at least, there were. Probably many of these hare now been destroyed by the apade or fork, but tf any have bean left, they will make much finer plants in tbe spring than anything w# can eow. Of course, it ia only the hardy things which survive a severe frost. Not only annusla, but biennials and perennials seed ...

Salmagundi [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
7 Salmagundi ?« — *3 By 1 Cutlcur V At an open air service in Macquarie Place, Sydney, on Sunday last the Rev. Carr Smith (emulating Taylor, the famous cyclist) got a jump on and for a little time made the pace a hummer. He said the country was going to the devil because of its drunkenness, im purity aud gambling propen sities. I hope Mr. Smith is not so cruel as to insinuate that the Czar of Underland is getting more than his usual average of departeds, for in addition to making me feel un comfortable, it would be rather uncomplimentary to his co workers in the vineyard. Still on consideration it does seem as if we Australians prefer a wide thoroughfare, and the warning voices, occasionally heard, seem to lack strength. We must surely be degenera ting, or is it that the mantles of the disciples are worn out, mislaid, or exchanged for new coats. * * :H War and rumours of war, is one of the most interesting themes both for press and pub lic and the most peaceable of us look for the l...
