A Perfect Remedy for the Codlin Moth. PROF. A. J. COOK, MICHIGAN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. Sussex Street [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
A Perfect Remedy for the Codlin Moth. I'ROF. A. J. COOK, MICHIGAN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. Sussex Street, After eight years' experience in spraying fruit trees with Paris green or London purple, I can say that it is safe and effective against the codlin moth. Three cautions must be observed : First: The preparation must not be too strong. I prefer London purple as it is cheap, mixes easily, and remains mixed longer than the heavier and more expensive Paris Green. One pound of London purplo to one hundred gallons of water is strong enough. It had better be weaker rather than stronger. The proportions mentioned make it strong enough to do the work desired, and if stronger it blights the leaves, especially if applied the second time. With this weak mixture we can apply [it so thor oughly as to do excellent execution, and yet not kill the leaves. Secondly : We must apply it at the right time. This is just after the blossoms fall from the trees. If earlier it is too early for our purpose an...

Where do Flies come from? [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Where do Flies come from ? The wood shed, of course, attract flies. So the neat, tidy housewife is less tor mented than one not so blessed with this kinship to godliness. We provide in three ways against these pestiferous house flies. First, we have screens to all our windows, and to such doors as aro lnucti used, especially tlio outside doors to kitchen and dining 'room. The screens to the kitchen windows aro full length, so the windows can be opened either from above or below. We believe in fresh air, and with this arrangement we get it. Secondly, the scroen to the pantry window, to each of the dining room windows, and to one window of each of tho other rooms, is hinged at the top to the upper sash. Thus, by darkening all the other windows, the flies alight on this hinged screen. We now push tho screen quickly out at the bottom, brush rapidly with a palm-leaf fan, and lo ; tho flies are all outside the window. Thirdly, in wise the flies get too thick, wo use pyrethvum, or, better ...

Free Righted at Last, CHAPTER XL. AX APPLE OF DISCORD. It did not occur to either of these young people that there was anything at all. remarkable or irregular in the circumstance of a lady visiting tho chambers of her betrothed alono. But as this was her first visit, Madge felt a little awkward, and woiild have been much more at ease if AVrentham had not .been present. That gentleman, however, as soon as he perceived who the visitor was, took up his glossy hat, made his salutations to Miss Heathcoto, and informed Philip that lie was obliged to hurry along to tho office before it closed, but would probably return later. When he had departed, Madge glanced with curiosity round the apartment, and her first comment was : 'You ought to have curtains over that door-way, Philip' (she alluded
Sydney [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Sydney to the uncovered entrance to a small recess which was a store-room) ; ' and I must come in soon and dust the placo thoroughly. I wonder you have not been choked. See here ; it is positively disgraceful.' She ran her finger over the ledge of a book-case, making a line in the dust. And with half -timid but wholly curious interest, she continued to scrutinise the place, making mental notes of what she would have to do to insure his comfort. He was astounded. She had been with Mr. Shield. She must have been made acquainted with the ter rible nature of his position ; and yot she could placidly criticise the furni ture of his room and interest Jherself in a question of dusting ! He had often admired her cool firmness in moments of accident, illness, or diffi culty ; but he could find nothing to ad mire in this absolute indifferenco to the crisis in his affairs. In his bitter ness he was unjust, and his reflections were to this effect : ' How blessed arc those who can be callously c...

Extraordinary Scene between Football Teams. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Extraordinary Scene betweenFoot ball Teams. Ax exciting scene took place at Middlewieh station, Cheshire, on Satur day evening, after the match between Northwich and Crowe for tho Cheshire final. Both parties assembled on the ounosito platforms waiting for trains. They commenced operations by alter nately hooting and cheering, and then one man challenged an aggressive antagonist to fight. Both leaped on the metals, and fought desperately till sep arated by the officials. Then a great number of the Northwich men ran'across the lino, storming tho platform occupied by the Crewc men. Uninterested passengers bolted right and left; while a fight proceeded which the station offi cials wore powerless to prevent. The police were sent for, and, by the time the force arrived, Northwich had prac tically gained possession of the platform, the Crewe men being outnumbered. The Crewe special then came in, and the police guarded the men to the train, many carrying away marks of the con test.
Land Nationalization, the Single Tax, and Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Land Nationalization, the Single Tax, and Protection, 'The world is a theatre of incessant action ; the soones change perpetually : the actors come and go like autumnal clouds ; and the parts which they perform are comic or serious, dramatic or tragic, invariably, in accordance with the morul culture and external circumstances, of the actors.'— A. J, Davis.''- ?????''??? '' We have been born into a aheath of custom, which enfolds us with our swaddling clothes. 'When we begin to grow toman hood (if we ever do), we see what sort of thing it is that surrounds us. It is an old husk now. It does not bear looking into ; it is rotten ; it is inconsistent ; it is thoroughly indefensible ; yet very likely we Lime have to accept it. ... Just as we die to custom, for the first time we rise into the true life of humanity. . . . This is a new departure for man, for which even to-day the old world, overlaid with myriad oustoms now brought into obvious and opon conflict, is evidently preparing. — ...
Sports and Games. FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Sports and Games. FOOTBALL. Parramatta Park was very lively 011 Satur day last, both tho King's School and tho newly formed l'arramattas having good matches on. Tho former met tho formidable Arfomas and had to go under, yet not without ft gallant struggle. It was not expected that the School would como cut on top, considering that all through the Arfomas could give tho boys about two stone per man. Tho Parramattas, how ever, balanced matters for the town, easily do featiug tho young representatives of the moun tain, fern aud stream. The Zoalandias claim ' the Greater Britain ' as the country wherein they first saw the light. They played a good, fast, plucky game, but had neither the weight nor tho skill of tho Parramattas, who made a very good impression for a start. Hovcver, they looked very much like a scratch team on Saturday, appearing in so many different uniforms. ' Uniformity of uniform' is most essential, and the magpie style should be done away with as soon as possible. The...
THE MUNICIPAL STAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
THE MUNICIPAL STAKES. FE03I ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. Groat interest is being taken in tho Munici pal Stakes which is to be run to-day on the New Borough Racecourse. The starter (Mr. Monokton )will drop the flag at 8 o'clock, and tho hurry-scurry, go-as-you-please contest will wage fiercely until 3 o'clock. We all hope the best ' nags' will win. Judging irom tne ' trials ' done by those engaged, I should say that tho race will be keen among the first flight. The old warrior Full Ford is going well and should make the pace very warm from the jump. Tho shapely young colt Alick will take some watching, but I hoar he is rather fractious, being unused to the course. Last Saturday he did not show up to do his preliminary can ter, but his old trainer quieted the alarm of his admirers by stating that he was doing well. Ho will run a g-wl race, with his knowing old trainers' polish on him. S. G, is a good weight carrier, but they have pixt a lot on his back. U e has to carry about lOst of 'corp...

Mounted Infantry. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Mounted Infantry. AVe advocate the formation of a per manent regiment with strong cadres, but weak in horses and rank and file. The latter should, in the event of a European war, be filled up by men taken from all infantry battalions who have gone through a three months' course. Finally, we would advocate the detach ing from this regiment of a company to South Africa, ono to Egypt, another to Burmeh, and another to 'the North West frontier of India. We should thus gain great experience in the tactical amployment, &c, of this new force, and be able on any emergency to form a, body of men trained alike to using camels and horses. — 'Army and Navy Gazette.'

A Convincing Portrait. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
A Convincing Portrait. A man once called upon a, portrait painter and asked him to paint his father. ' But where is your father? ' asked he of the brush. ' Oh, he died ten years ago.' 'Then, how can I paint him?' asked the artist. ' AVhy,' was the reply, ' I have just seen your portrait of Moses. Surely, if you can paint the portrait of a man who died thousands of years ago, you can more easily paint the portrait of my father, who has only been dead ten years.' Seeing the sort of man with whom he had to deal, the artist undertook the work. AVhen the picture was finished the newly blossom ed art patron was called in to see it. He gazed at it in silence for some time, his eyes filling with tears, and then soft ly and reverently said: ' So that is my father? Ah, how he has changed!' — 'Cassell's Saturday Journal.'

Doubtful Candidates. — I spout a very amus ing half hour at Rydalmore on Saturday last, after tho spouting was over listening to a few of the candidates jabbering about municipal matters. One in particular tickled my fancy. After puffing himself out like a toad, he said fust and foremost we want alarge airy place for Council Chambers, because you know wo alder men don't want to bo smothered up in a close room.

Pasteur's Researches and Beer Drinkers. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 18 May 1889
Pasteur's Researches and Beer Drinkers. Pasteur's studies should interest beer drinkers as well as the vic tims of rabid dogs. Dr. Hansen, of Copenhagen, a distinguished pupil of Pasteur, in the coiirse of researches as to the propagation of micro-organisms, proceeded, to cultivate pure yeast. A few years ago, at one of the large Danish breweries, heavy loss had been sustained in consequence of the beer turning sour at intervals for a period of two years. Dr. Hansen ultimately traced the cause, and for tho first time had an opportunity of trying on an extended scale his then recently discovered pure yeast. The result was in overy way satisfactory, and from that day his system has been practically ap plied at Old Carlsberg. Briefly stated, Dr. Hansen's system consists in select ing a single coll of yeast of a species which by experiment has been proved to givo a certain ascertained result in fer mentation, and from this cell to culti vate yeast in large quantities for tho fermenting ...
