The Value of American Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 4 May 1889
The Value of American Crops. The wheat harvest of 1888 represen ted a value of about 414,000,000 dols., and the greater crop of 1887 a value of about 383,000,000 dols. The portion that was exported did not share in this relation, but taking the averages of the two years tho wheat harvest of 1887 did not yield in tho markets much more money than that of 1888. To covor this loss tho corn crop of 1888 yielded about 2,000,000,000 bushels. Of this enormous crop not woro than 5 per cent, is exported ; but, taking averages, tho value of this crop is at least 120,000,000 dols. greater than that of the preceding year. So of the oats harvest, which is said to exceed that of 1887 by Free 42,000,000 bushels. In regard to cot ton, the chief export of tho country, it is estimated that the decline in value of the product of 1888, compared with thatof 1887, is about 20,000,000 dols. Taking however, the four great crops of cotton, wheat, corn, and oats to gether, the gain in value in 1888 was 100,00...

Sydney The Educational Value of Outdoor Games. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 4 May 1889
Sydney The Educational Value of Outdoor Games. Organised play produces a most use ful effect. It trains the boy to do cor rectly just what he is told to do, and, while his spontaneous action is en couraged, he is kept ever ready to act according to circumstances. Play is healthful; so is the alternation of mental work and active play. In men tal action tne brain centres probably act in stimulating one another ; in jplay the muscles aro stimulated by the brain centres, and the purely mental action is diminished. Thus play is not merely muscular exercise, but a change in the kind of brain action, and probably of the action of the special centres. Even if the fact were not well established the physiologist would expect to find that moderate athletics and success in mental work are not divorced from one another. This is well illustrated in the list of scholarships recently gained by the boys of St. Paul's School; all the athletic leaders are named in the list. The tendency to self conte...

AVright, Wheeler, and AVilshire, Ms.L.A., waited upon the Minister for AVorks on Thurs day for the purpose of urging tho Government to deepen tho Parramatta River from Home bush to Parramatta. The work, it was con tended, was necessary for sanitary reasons. The work, it was admitted, would cost a largo sum of money, but that would be handsomely roturned by the sale of the land reclaimed, which would yield tens of thousands of pounds to tho State. Successive Governments had promised to carry out the work, and if it was not. carried out within the next ten years the wholo river down to Newington would be nothing but a quagmire. At present tho only vessels that could navigate the river were small river steamers, and if the river were deopoued larger vessels could ply up to tho Queen's AVharf, Parramatta, and traffic i...
The Eggs of an Eel. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 4 May 1889
The Eggs of an Eel. According to Mr. Fred. Mather, of Cold Spring Harbour, N.Y., scientists have known that the eel is an eggpro ducing fish for a dozen years or more, the Russian naturalist, Syrski, having first figured the ovaries of the female and the spesmaries of the male, but how and where these minute eggs are laid is still unknown. In October tho eels run down to salt water to breed, and in the spring the young eels ascend the brooks and rivers in swarms. As they are then some 2 inches long and of tho size of a darning needle, it is evi dent that they must have been hatched several weeks beforo, perhaps in Feb ruary, to have grown so much from so small an egg. The number of eggs in a 6-lb. eel in November (in what is known to fishermen as 'eel fat,' but which are really the ovaries) is fully 9,000,000. Under the microscope they measure 80 to tho linear inch, and taking one ovary and dividing it by means of the most delicate scales Known to science, I halved, quartered, and f...
