DROWNED ON LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893

DROWNED O' LAND. Strange as it seems, a fish may suner death by drowning. When a stream is suldeniy swollen with water that has fallen upon and drained from surrocuding soil which has been exposel for some time previously to the sun'e rays, the water is warmed and deprived of its power of holding a proper complement of oxygen, the vivifying gas in consequence escapes, and the fish, deprived of the aids necessary for respiration, feint and die, as they would if placed in tepid water. A fish, like a man, requires a perpetual supply of oxygen to his breathing apparatus. A fish gets its oxygen from the water, a man from the atmosphere around him. Reverse the position of the two and the fish becomes what is called drowned in the open air. while man is drowned in the water. A ish teken oat of water dies from drowning. because the little blood-containing filaments which cmi prise the gills become stuck together ani of course cannot act 5o as to oxygenate the blood. Fisherman sometimes drow...

ODDS AND ENDS. HOW TO PUT UP A CLOTHES-LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893

ODDS AND ENDS. HOW TO PUT UP A CLOIHES-LINE. A simple contrivance, designed to save a great deal of washing-day work, can be put in place very easily. It consists of a little house or shed, fifteen inches long, fastened .toutly all along one side against the outer wall of a building, or perhaps against a fence; though one objection to the tatter is that the line when stretched and hung with wet clothes would pull upon the fence and perhaps cause it to sag in time A part of the other or outer side of the little clotheline shelter is made in a sort of door, opening on hinges, which lets down. disclosing the barrel on which the clothes line it wound. To this at one end a crank handle is attached with a ratchet wheel. In puotting up the line, one end of which is tied to the barrel, first unwind the line and pass it around each pole until all is in the position wanted. Slip the loop in the end over the last pole, then go rack to the box, turn the crank until all the line is straight and ...

AFTER GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893

AFTER GAME. We had dinner, at the Roaring Creek Hotel and were waiting for the stage horses to be brought out when a woman galloped up on a raw-boned borse. She was a female who hadseen 50 winters, and each succeeding one had made her homelier than the one before. Even the stage driver, whovalued women at 1,000,000dols. a ton, turned his head after one look. " Gentlemen," she began, as she sized the five of us up, " I'm a lone widdder from Wild Cat Ranch, ten miles up Roaring Creek. Are any of you single ?" " Mrs. Scott, you go on !" called the land lord as he came to the door. SWhat fur ?" she asked as she looked at him. " This is about the tenth time you've rid over here lookin' fur a man. It don't look right." " Yes, it's about ten times, I guess," she slowly replied, " and it don't look as if I was gom' to hey any luck to-day. Does any one of you want a widder with 600 acres of land and an orange grove behind her ?" Each man solemnly shook his head, being already provided for. "...

MARION'S BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893

MARIdON'S BURGL In the sprihg of the year, 1878, my husband, Frederick. Morton, made up his mind to try anexperiment. -Instead "f taking board for as throfgh the surm uner months, he decided to 'hire a far nished house, within easy reach of the city, thinking he would be-far more com fortable in that way. After a diligent search, we found` a suitable house at New Brighton. It was situated on a high hill and commanded at charming and exquisite view of the bay' and surroundnmg' country. The only drawback was its utter isolation from neighbors, for the nearest 'one was at least half a mile away. We were: safely -settled in our new home. by 'the first of May, fully deter minhed to enjoy every day of the coming summer. ' Our household comprised at 'that timie, my husband and self, our in fant- son; and- one servant. Norah was a widow, thoroughly capable and trust worthy. I would have found her in valuable but for the- number of her relations, some of whomt unaccountably died each month,....

THE CULTIVATION OF THE CHRYSANTHEMUM. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 4 November 1893

THE CULTIV*ATION OF -THER CI-RYSANrHEMVUM..1 (BY Mn W. SmITH, Riddell's Creek.) The justly great and ever increasing popularity of the _-hrysantlhemum is now very marked, Their. simplicity 'of culture and pciculiirly easy adaptation to almost every soil, climate, and situation, is one cause of such popularity, but I think the chief cause is due to the wonderful effects that can be produced in the flower by what is now generally. known as "intense culture." No flower can be so changed from its ordinary size and appearance as the chrysan themum can by special and artifical' treatment. T'he flowers so produced are generally intended by the cublivator for exhibition purposes, and the culture to this end is most fascinating. Now, throughout the colony almost every town has its annual chrysanthemum show, each creating great local interest. The spirit of friendly competition is keen amongst growers, each striving the utmost to outdo the other, and the great impr.Jvem.nt in the various clas...
