UPROOTING TREES. A SIMPLE CONTRIVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
UPROOTING 4BEE8. A SIMPLE CONTRIVANCE. A correspondent, F.C.M., writing from Baker, Beods rasa sketch of a plan of uprooting trees which we reproduce above. He calls it the 'Capstan Slasher,' and states that he has' frequently used it successfully for box and other trees. It is necessary to cut the surface roots, dig a hole under the tree facing the slasher, then rig the contrivance, and walk round. The tree comes down. Four men, our correspondent says, will pull down a tree as easily as ten bullocks will do it. To make the slasher, get a piece of box 5 ft. long and 6 in. through and mortise two lioles right through. Saw a groove out about 4 in. fromeach«nd for the chain to work in. . Knock in an old bolt to keep the rope from slipping, and have chains long enough to go around the slasher and around the anchor tree. Fasten a strong rope to the upper limbs of the tree you intend to pullover, fix the rope on the bolt, and walk around. It takes two men .to work it. You can pull over se...

When questioned at first-Mr. Olsen said there P' was very little news to tell, but when asked fr* whether the newly-invented 'Radiator' $?- machine would prove beneficial to the Aus fc tralian trade he laughingly replied: — 'lhat K. is always the first question I am asked every jp, where I have been in the colonies.

HOW TO TIE UP A FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
HOW TO TIE UP A FLEECE. The following notes by a practical man in--, the Australian. Field on tieing up a fleece will . be found valuable. He writes :— ' Use a . table 4 ft. by 5 ft., and 3 ft. high. Have a half inch hole through the middle of the back edge, through which to pass the twine, and a notch directly opposite in the front side in which to - fasten the end of the twine. A fleece needs to be lined to give it a good appearance and keep it from pulling apart. After spreading it upon the table draw the fleece together, compressing the fibre as closely as practicable, then divide - the fleece as indicated, thus partially skirting - the fleece, as this takes off the coarser fibres on- ? the lower part of the fore legs and_ of the neck ; . raise this carefully and place it with white end down upon the body fleece, covering this as well as possible. Next lay the wool from the belly upon this ; place the loose, clean locks upon this, and tho fleece is ready to fold. The,- . „. „, f...

English. Extracts. WOMEN ON WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
@ixgtbh.@xtoct0v WOMEN ON WHEELS. [By Mi's. Humphiit, in the Idler.] There is an old story of a Scotch' sexton who, meeting a ghosff in the churchyard one ?night, asked it : — 'Is it the general resurrec tion, or -are ye only out for a wee daunder by yourself?' One feels inclined to paraphrase his question apropos of the present craze for cycling that has attacked society. Is it only a passing fancy ? Or is it a revolution '! Who shall eay? There is nothing1 so fickle as fashion. -In thebegmnmg of the year the women of the leisured classes devoted them selves to skating many of them throwing them selves with such energy into the now amuse ment as to seriously injure their health. The cycling mania has taken even deeper hold, as may be made manifest to anyone who shall visit Battereea Park about half-past 10 in the morning. Hundreds of gently nurtured girls arc there to be seen on bicycles, some of them ,export enough, others still iu their novitiate, and many of them accompanied by ...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The heavy rains which fell last week had a highly beneficial effect upon the wheat crops throughout the north, and the fall came none too early, as the plants were going back very rapidly. The continuous drought had absorbed all the moisture from the soil, and unless rain had fallen it was feared that the major portion of the crops in the northern areas would have been lost. There is now a little moisture to carry the wheat on for a while, and where the crops are backward enough to admit it it would be advisable to conserve the moisture|jby passing the harrows over the land. By this means the hard crust which has formed on the surface of the soil would be disturbed and it would act as a light mulching. In many places in the north it is reported that the rains have saved the crops. The Premier has telegraphed to the Premiers of the Australasian Governments with refe rence to . trade with Japan, suggesting that the matter was of sufficient importance to be discusse...

Rockefeller, the Standard Oil King.' He is the richest man in America. His fortune has now reached the gigantic ? ?- figure of 145, 000,000 dollars. Before the end of the year it will have reached tho terrific* 6um of ? 150,000,000 dollars. People who can claim; to know say that his wealth is growing at the rate of 15.000,000 dollars a year. So savs, . . the London American. But in spite of his almost fabulous wealth, Mr. Rockefeller aud his . :' family live very simple lives, which in no way remind one ol the sybaritic style now adopted by the majority of well-to-do Americans who ' are not millionaires. They live in a simple though spicious house iu Fifty-four-street, j Ntw York, and Mr. Rockefeller, who works seven hours a day at his ofiice, takes his chief ????: pleasure in staying at home, rarely goes into societ...

A VEHICLE ACCIDENT. Mount Babker, October 4.— The Courier \ states that Messrs. R. C. Paltridge and R. D. Beresford, of Mount Barker, met_ with an accident -while driving to Adelaide -early on Thursday morning. They were passing the German Arms Hotel, Hahudorf, wheu a butcher's van, driven by Mr. Jaensch, who failed to control his two horses, dashed into Mr. Paltridge s vehicle and overturned it. Mr. Beresford managed, by leaning as far back as possible, to escape the pole of the cart, which just grazed his face, but he received a severe shaking. Mr. Paltridge, who retained his'hold of thereins, also 'bit the dust,' but luckily escaped without injury, which is more than can be said_ of his buggy. It was Mr. ' Jaensch's trial trip in charge of the van, and bo has good reason to remember his first 'day out.' # 'Mr. Horace Edmunds, a son of Mr. Edmunds, of the Stockade, while driving into Adelaide on Monday morning was thrown from the trap at the corner of Avenue road and Kermode-stree...
