Fertilizing by Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Fertilizing- br Irrigation. It is a remarkable fact that the regular and continued application of water to the soil seems to renew its fertility as no amount of manure will do. Year after year, . orchards, vineyard.*, and all manner of growth, continue to thrive, and it seems to be a generally accepted conclusion that when irri gation is regularly practised it is not necessaiy to renew the strengtk of the soil with manures. . This idea has prevailed to such a'i Lentthat the accumulation of the stable ./ i.-nyacd ' or 'corral,' as it is always called hti-, are. i looked upon rather as a nuisance, than a valuable adjunct, to be carefully husbanded f and returned to the fields. -San Bernardino K?

Silver-Plated Ribbons. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Silver-l'iated Ribbons. ' Rather neat, eh ?' A Broadway dealer in fancy goods was showing a Mail and Express reporter a hand some purple ribbon 011 which, his initials were written in silver letters. ' You want to know how that was done ? "Well, I'll tell you. Make a solution of nitrate of silver and add a little gum to it, so that the liquid will not run. Then, with a camel's hair pencil or a quill pen, draw any sort of ornamental figure on the sillr. After the drawing is dry hold the ribbon over a vessel containing water, zinc, and sulphuric acid. In a short time the silver will be reduced and adhere quite strongly to the fabric. By this plan almost anything can be written on silk. A picture could be painted in silver, and there is no end to the fanciful designs that might be made.' iV. Y. Mail.

LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

LADIES' COLUMN. Mr. Edward Scott, in his 'Dancing and Dancers,' makes the following estimate of the distance actually waltzed over in an evening by a belle cf the ball-room: " Do yon, ' my fair and fragile reader,' think you would go six times round a moderate-sized ball-room, say, making a circuit of eighty yards during a waltz ? Yes, at least, even allowing for rest. That, then, is four hundred and eighty yards if you went in a line. But you are turning nearly all the time, say, on an average, once in each yard of onward progress, and the circumference of a circle is rather more than three times its diameter, which will bring each waltz to over three-quarters of," a mile, or, at least, fourteen miles for the eighteen waltzes." What an immense contrast there is (says Harper's Bazar) between the maidens of to day and those of three or four generations ! Where one dies to-day of too much, study, twenty died day before, so to speak, of too thin slippers. The girls of to-day have esche...

Fashion's Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 22 June 1888

Fashion's Fancies. Striped ribbons from hair lines to half-inch widths of white and a colour are very new and very uglv New tennis coats are of gay striped serge, quite short, with fitted back, loose fronts and deeply rolled collar. Black lace dresses are now made up over slips of shot silk, either moss green with rose pink with gray or rep with blue. Flowers are now mounted with their own leaves, or ferns or grass, as the taste of the moment is against the mixture of blossoms. Close wreaths of roses, without leaves, either quite upon the edge, or half-way the brim, will be immensely stylish upon lace spring bonnets. Very few handkerchiefs have not merely a coloured border, but dots, blocks, bars and rings-even Pompadour bouquets-rioting over their whole surface. New basques have pointed backs, stiffly boned throughout, and though there is an effort to trim sleeves into untidiness the favourite mode is yet the natty ruff of folds, held by a closely strapped bow. Paris milliners are ...

The Frciich Dogs of War. The London Court Journal says that the Mog corps' in the Freach Army is being care fully trained at Belfort, aud the pupils begin to do credit to their teachers.
