FIVE THOUSA3NDk POUNDS. A STORY OF THE MELBOURNE Cl P. BY ARTHUR DAVIB. '"D D I remember the year Zulu won' the Cip ?" Yes, I do. I have peculiar reason to remember, for I missed netting £5,000 in connection with- that: event. * Did I back him ?" No I did not. I'll'tell jou how it was.

THE VISION OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
STHE VISION OF BIRDS, Birds have very acute vision; perhaps the most acute of any creature, asuc the sense is also more widely diffused over the retina than is ihecase with man; consequently a btrd can see sideways as well as ojects in front of it. A bird sees-showing great un easiness in consequence-a hawk tong before it is visible to man; so, too, Iowli and pigeons finid miniute scraps of food, ils tinguishing them from what appear to us exactly similar pieces of gravel. Young chickens are also able to find their own foot snowing its position and how distant it is, as soon as they are hatched, whereas a child only very gradually learns either to see or to understand the distance of objects. Several birds-apparently the yoang of all those that ness on the groqud-can see quite weir direotly they come oat of the shed, but the young of birds that nest in trees or on rocks are born blind and have to be fed.

LAND SPOILERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
LAND SPOILERS. A London correspondent writes: - Mr Joseph Arch, whom I have seen apropos of the subject, says:-" 1 think very little of the new Commission on Agriculture. It will be like its predecessor, and end in smoke. 'Ihere is only one care for agricultural dis. tress, ant that is to discharge 75 per cent. of the farmers now on the land." I asked what those gentlemen had lone to merit expro priation. "What have they done 2" was the indignant question in reply-" What have they not nonel They are not land cultivators. They are land spoilers. Tne earth, well rid of their blighting shadow, ought to be cut up into small adlorments, ana given to practical men who would know what to do with it. iianos and side saddles," Mr Arch continued with flashing eyes, "are at the bottom of the distress. WVhat can be expected but banruptcy from men who go in for fripperies of this kind, instead of making their wives and familieb work about the farm, and who are in bed when they ought to be seen i...
FARM AND GARDEN. SULPHUROUS WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
FARM AND GARDEN. SULPHUROUS WATEB. Mr Maslin, of 'Frisco, gives his recipe for making the above water for fruit preservation in glass jars. Place twenty gallons of filtered water in a cask. Float a tin pan with a handful of sulphur in it. Light the sulphur, and cover the cask over with a sack, and relight the sulphur if it goes out or the oxygen is exhausted, until it is all burnt up. Have the fresh fruit in the jars, pour the water over it, seal tightly up, and it will keep a number of years. This is the beat experniment tried by Mr. Maslin for fruit-preserving.
MOTHERS & CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
MOTHERS & CHILDREN. There is no greater service which a woman can render to the church and state than the. faithful and successful bringing up of abildren, though it has its trials. But if the service is so great it is due to those who offer it that they should be relieved of all unnecessary burdens. There is a motheihool which is not martyrdom. What Ausetralian society inost needs today is a revival of parental authority in the loving hands of-self respecting mothers. Woe unto that bomrne whose king is a child. The true mother is a. queen, whose sub. j acts are most loyal and most loving. Parents never reach the best results of training by self . effacement. Authority in Its plaeo is as important as self sacrifice. Motliers have a valid ground of complaint against that philosophy of education which would sacrifice them wholly to their chil drenj Service never'ought to be one-sided. The children most learn to deny them selves for the mothier's sake as well as the mother for ...

THE HOME CIRCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
THE HOME CIRCLE. -. GINGER BREAD (teeted by correspondent) --21o. sell-raising Rour, pinch of salt, 11b. of soft sugar, one teaspoonful mixed spice, 4lb. aripping (any kind will do), three teaspoon fuls ground ginger; rub well together dry; mix with lib. treacle, one cup of milk, to a stiff batter; heat well till perfectly smooth; one or two eggs may be used-in that case, Bess milk. Place in well-greased tins or patty-pans, fithing only half zull to allow for rising; bate in slow oven for one hour or less, according to size of tins; rice water is an excellent substitute for milk in mixing cake or ginger bread; if the ordinary flour is used,. aisolve one teaspoonful of car bonate soda in a hlittle hot water, and use less milk.

AN OYSTER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893
AN OYSTER GARDEN. The great oyster garden at Arcachon, France, is a basin on the Bay of Biscay, connected with the Atlantic only by a very narrow opening, and is sxty-eight mites in circumference and protected from winds by the pine-clad heights that surround it. The waters are salt enough and yet not to strong, the bottom is of the gravelly sandi favourable to oyster-breeding, and the rise and fall of the tides are such that the basin is completely covered at high tide and the beds are largely uncovered at low water. The oyster has always been an inhabitant of this spot. The stock had become nearly exhausted forty years ago, but has been recuited by individual enterprise under the encouragement of the government. There' are now twelve tbousand five-hundried n, r, of oyster-beds in the oasin. Sevr.t thousand men and womonun are emplovei t attend them, and the averase annual sale of oysters by the princip3l firm is over t'-t hundred millions. As the majority r-e not sold under two ye...

On the way to the races one com )artment of a carriage was occupied by In elderly Frenchman, a man who ooked as though he knew his way Lbout town, and four others, whose )rofession was soon indicated by the )rod'iction of three cards, which one of he four began to manil ulate on the olded coat he had put on his knees. Cie game went on in the old famihliar ashion, aimed at the man about town, rho, however, was not easily to be had. The old Frenchman was reading Gil Blas ; but presently his curiosity was iroused, and he began to play. Then ;he other man, the intended victim, felt ,ertain that he knew the right card, bet filyer on it, turned it up, and won. Ihe card-sharper cheerfully dealt again, )ut was met with the quiet answer ' No, thaak you-no more. I don't :hink I could do it again," Bluster and persuasion were equally iseless, and when the train stopped at a tation the four rascals got out, leaving he old Frenchman and the winner done.
