- THE TEETOT'AL.ER'S -. INTOXICANT. In all ages and climes the various peoples of the earth have been addicted to the consumption of some more or less stimulating national beverage. Since the dawn of history the Arabian has ,drunkl: his coffee, the Mlexican his choco late, and the Chinasmen his tea, whlle the Indian has chewed his betelnut, and the native of Central Africa Nis kola. From China to Peru,men, savage and civilised alike, seem always :o have felt the need of 'refreshers,' either of their nervous or muscular forces, and to have ought and found the desired restorative most suited to their respective wants in the fields or forests of their native land. In those less ftvoured reigons where Nature did not supply a beverage ready to hand, man soon learned how to assist her, and from the grain that gave him bread produced fire-water, and with the `aid of one of the flowers of the field, the mead that Balder pours intco the flagons of tlhe heroes of Valhalla. : IBut it is to one...

AGRICULTURAL. RICE CULTURE IN LOUISIANA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 18 January 1895
AGRICULTURAL. RICE CULTURE IN LOUISIANA. The first requisite to profitable rice culture is a comparatively level piece of landproperly ploughed and pulverized. This field must be located so as to be conveniently irrigated. The only profit able rice in Louisiana is the aquatic plant. Highland rice does not pay. Water is the first and last want of-sprouting, growing,and ripening rice. The ploughed and harrowed field is divided into per fectly level plats by a system oflittlr sub levees and watering ditches. The ground is then planted in drills,dry,by machines, or by broadcast handsowing :hen wet. The latter plan is more common in Louisiana. The soil is next thoroughly saturated with water to sprout the seed. When the'seeds have evenly germinated the wateris drawn off until the tender shoots of the plant rises two or three inches above the ground. The water manipulation requires the most watchful care. The young plants may beeither drowned out or dried up by the least inattention in re...

TRUE ARISTOCRACY. Where are the Knights of Runnymede. Orf Stephen Langtori, keen and bir d? The men of whose exploits we read, The kings and noblemen of old ? Champions they were, in many a fray, Where are the noblemen to-day? Those days are past, and w-ell awray; When men were serts and kept below; In these enlightened times we say No man as master we will know ! -Then cast those gew-gaws all away, We want no noblemen to-day: If they were dark, and brighter we, A nobler spirit should be ours; And noblemn.en we still may see, In cottages as well as towers; You still may give true courage play, There's room for noblemen to-day. Our records tell no nobler tale. Than Livingstone's and Gordon's lives; The brave men fall, but never fail, The noble spirit still survives ; Of Hannington and Comber say, These are our noblemen to-day. We need them all ; the purpose high, Self sacrifice for others' good ; Followers of Him who came to die, Noble to the last drop of blood ! Take every selfish a...

"He seems very lazy and sleepy,' said the professor ; "I don't think he could exert himself in this climate if he tried." Jamrach smiled and wound him gently rounid the professor's body. "I thought so, Jamrach," he said; "I feel nothing." SBut presently he shouted out, "Take liin off, Jamracbh! Take him off man; e: s strangling me I" so Jamrach just caught hold of the boa's tail and un wound him off the professor, ring by ring. When he had got his breath again the professor admitted there was more "lat ent muscularity" about the creature than belihad supcted. "NoIr, sir," said Jamrack afterwards, "that boa was half asleep and stupid, foir he had just s...
