KINGS FOR AN HOUR. How Royalty is Represented by Deputy. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
KINGS FOR AN HOUR. -+-- How Royalty is Represented by Deputy. It obviously would be quite im possible for the King and Queen to keep in person their many public and social engagements, and there fore from time to time their Majes ties are compelled to attend various public and private functions by de puty. A good deal of ceremony is o:served both in appointing a deputy to represent the King and in the manner in which he must be re ceived. Indeed, the deputy of the Sovereign is, to all intents and pur poses, a king for the moment, and any neglect to pay him proper de ference would entail the severe dis pleasure of His Majesty. When the King attends by deputy any public ceremony, such as the lay ing of a foundation stone or the ozening of some public institution, a committee must he appointed to receive, the Sovereign's representa tive, just as would he the case were the Sovereign to attend the ceremony in person. The names of the per sons on such a committee are al ways submitted bef...

BACKWARD GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
BACKWARD GROWTH. One of the most remarkable natural fetishes in the world is the Chinese kou-chi, called by some people, "the vegetable lamb." It is regarded by the natives of China as something supernatural; they -believe it'to be part vegetable and part animal. The plant certainly bears a resemblance to an animal, although it might be taken for a pig as readily as s lamb. Koi-chi is composed principally of the plant known as rhizome, and springs from seed. After 'attaining its full height, roots and tendrils spring from the fibre, and gro.ýdownxards until they' enter the earth. ' It is this peculiar formation which has caused it to be regarded with so much awe. 'The Chinese claim that, after it has reached its full size, it ceases to be vegetable, and tur4s ani mal, feeding upon the tender bhoots of plants which grow near it.-T

Disestablishment of the Irish Church. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
Disestablishment of the Irish Church. The Church of Ireland was sepa rated ,from the Church of England, disestablished, and partially di en dowed by the Irish Church Act of 1869, which received the Royal assent on July 26, and came into force on January 1, 1871.

There are twenty-one diocesan synods, subject to the General Synod, and these, in their turn, are assisted by smaller elected bodies called diocesan coun cils. The property of the Church is held, and the funds administered, by a rerresentative body of financial trustees, composed of the archbishops and bishops, thirteen clergymen, and twenty-six laymen. In 1881:the Irish Church numbered nearly 7,000,000. .The Book of Common Prayer, slight ly altered by the General Synod, is used by the Church of Ireland, the Thirty-Nine Articles remaining: un changed.

The Capture of Gibraltar. On July 24, 1701, the Marquis de Salinrs, the Governor of Gibraltar, surrenderc I the garrison to the fam ous British admirals, Sir George Roo'e and Sir Cloudesley Shovel. Sir George HIooke had been sent with a strong fleet to the Mediter ran-an, to assist the Archduke of Austria; but was so tied down by instructions as to be unable to effect any enterprise of importance. Un willing to return to England with at owerful squadron withotit having achieved something, he" called a, council of war, and It was determin ed to attack Gibraltar, then held by the Spanish. On July 21 the Ileet reached the bay, and 1,800 men were landed on the isthmus. On the.23rd the ships began a brisk cannonade on the New Mole, and in five or six hours drove the enemy from the guns. Captain Whitaker, with the armed boats, was ordered to take possession of the Mole; but Captain I-licks and Jumper, whose ship lay nearest, pushed ashore before the others came up. On their landing, the S...

FORTUNES IN HORSEFLESH. £50,000 Offered for a Single Animal. Yet another record has been added to the long prices paid for racing stock. 'The other day 15,000 gui ners was realised at Newmarket for the celebrated brown mare Flair, the property of Sir Daniel Cooper. This is no less than 2,400 guineas in excess of the amount paid for La F'leche by Sir Tatton Sykes sonic years ago, 12,,00 guineas being the best previous price ever paid for a mare for ireeding purposes at the N winer:ct sales. The 15,000 guineas for Flair, how ever, is by no means the highest pIrice laid for a racehorse. M.

FOURTEENTH INSTALMENT. CHAPTER XXVIII. JULIE. The doctor had seen Mr. Dalrymple again and gone away, leaving ma dame in sole charge of the sick room. The injured man was very restless, fever had set in, and he talked in cessantly, but there was no sense in his words. Seated in an easy-chair by the bed side she did her best to soothe him, laying her cool soft hand on his forehead, and murmuring gentle, ten der words that seemed to penetrate to his brain and awaken memories of bygone days. " Julie, have you come back ? I tried to find you but it was no use. I shall not let you go again," he said, clasping her disengaged hand ; and so he lay quiet for a few min utes ; then fell into a broken slum ber. Presently he opened his eyes and called out : " Who said I was No. 649 ? Hush, you mustn't...
VISCOUNT KITCHENER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
VISCOUNT KITCHENER, ---+---- General Horatio Herbert, first Vis count Kitchener of (Khartoum-who is just completing the great work lie undertook in 1902 of reorganising the British Indian Army-was born on Midsummer Day at Ballylongford, in the county Kerry. During his exceptionally brilliant military career the retiring Indian commander has asserted himself with characteristic confidence and unbend ing will, and Lord Kitchener must he accounted one of the most strenuous soldiers that the British Empire has ever posses;edl. Coming of a military family, Lord Kitchener passed thirty-eight years ago from Woolwich ir.io the Royal Engineers. Since then his career has been one of scintillating brilliance, for "K. of K."--as lie is now often called " for short "--hls been to the fore in many expeditions and cam paigns, and fihans "built himself an everlastinig name" for thoroughness in the profession of arms. A veritable "glutton for work," lie assisted in the Palestine survey of 1874-78, a...

OIBEERI4L INFORIMATION a ----- There are more than 30,000 steam ships and sailing vessels of 100 tons and upwards in the world. In Italy no ancient monument can be restored or old building altered without special permission from the Government. The London Mendicity Society possesses nearly forty thousand beg ging letters, of which 87 per cent. are absolutely undeserving. The term "fighting for the ashes," used in connection with International cricket, was originated by the Lon don "Sporting Times" in 1882.

SHEEP ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
SHEEP ON THE FARIM, I-t There can be no question that the Australian farmer is realising more and more the value of sheep as an adjunct to general farming. The seasons have been, and are, in all probability, likely to remain propiti ous for a long time to come. The price of wool keeps up, and there is little likelihood of a decline, besides which sheep and lambs are very high priced. We print below an article bearing on this subject from the "Live Stock Journal," which is most interesting, and will doubtless be thought so by all readers of the Jour nal who have gone in for sheep-rais ing on their farms : The sheep and wool trade in every country has come to the front dur ing the last two years in 'a most vi gorous style, and, talk to whom we will, we get the impression that things have taken on a new lease of life. This is largely due to the fact of wool having sensibly increased in value, until at last the depressed sheep farmer has plucked up courage and begun business in an altog...
CULTIVATION OF BROOM CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 November 1909
CULTIVATION OF BROOM CORN. ----F------ The cultivation of broom corn is one of the features of rural work which is necessary to have in mind, particularly as it sometimes happens that some swift-maturing crop is re quired as a catch crop in between seasons. Broom corn can bd sown from July to January with safety ; the early sown crop will mature in about four months, when the stalks can be chop ped or mown down and another har vest gathered before winter frosts cut the stalks. To successfully cultivate, the land should be in a fine tilth, so as to enable the tender shoots to ger minate without obstruction. Seed should be sown in drills 3 feet 7 inches apart, and sufficient seed sown so as to allow plants at the rate of 3 to every foot of drill when thinned out. Every care should be taken to have the land free from grass and weeds, otherwise, as the, millet is in its young stage of a very slow growth, any weeds or grass la tent in the soil, if the weather is propitious, will outgrow ...
Important. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 19 November 1909
Important. Concerning some parts of the district news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for ho has no miracu lous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circulationi. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease? If no one else is doing it for your dis trirct will YOU try on these lines ? - Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents. con certs, matters touching the industries, etc. Write your name in some corner; not for printing, but for good faith. Write the names of persons very dis tmetly. Do not bother about grammsr or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. The barest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give information but let criticism alone.
