ESPALIERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
EBFALIEBS. E'palien for truit trees should be 6ft. high. This give room enough for a proper devdopment, but when trees are limited to 3 w4 branches on each side, in a few years they are worn .out by the severe nrnning necessary to keep them within Winds. Give the trees room enough, and tbey will annually produoe a paying crop ; but confine them to a limited spaoe and ther soon get out oi condition. When properly managed, the eepalier . system is an exoeUent one for applee or peine, bnt it is not so well adapted for atone finite. Thus it does well for goose berries and red currants, which besr cbiefly ou the young wood. All the fine dessert gooseberries should be grown on espalier* to get well-flavoured bemee. The large I,in caahlre varietiee grown in this way are : many of them, superior in flavour to the' small borne* whioh those who Vncy so bet ter still continue to grow. Just a word more about pruning old-establistied espalier fruit trees. Every pruner should Enow what to aim at....
A NEWSPAPER OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
A NEWSPAPER OUTRAGE. There is a liurseried fiction that it is a serious matter to at tempt to prejudice a law court, :uid we are taught that when a particular case or individual is being dealt with by the law it is not permissible to comment on the merits of the case or to make 11113- statement calculated to in any way affect the straight course of what we call Tustice. And if that fiction could al \va3*s be reduced to the limits of reality it would be a thing to be greatly desired and jealously cherished. But it seems that the measure of protection likely to be vouchsafed to au accused person by tlie operation of that safe-guaTdiiig principle is in these enlightened days largely regulated by his or her social and financial circumstances. * * * On Saturday night last the deplorable tragedy was enacted which cost John .Coppin his ? life, ,On Sunday^ morning FrankjCottam gave 'him self up tothe^litea^ £hat ? he'y i&4 Jibed 4he- fatal 'Shot.

SOMETHING ABOUT SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
SOMETHING ABOUr SEEDS. We cannot, as Shakcspere has it, look into tbe future, and say which seeds will grew aud which will not, but we can do the next beat thing, and buy tbe best seeds we can get, and at the beginning of a new year it ia generally neceaaary to overhaul the seed drawers and inske out a list of new seeds. I mention tnia now beoause some people have an idea old seeds are u«eless. But if the seeds were new, or nearly ao, when pur chased, and had been kept dry since, tbe greater part of the feeds purchased last season will produoe a reliable crnp, and those ve, have any doubt about may be tested by sowing, say, 100 seeds in a potand placing in a warm position anywhere till they ger minate. Onions will grow aa well the second Ssar aa the first, as will alao leeks, cabbages, russels sprouts, turnips, radishes,' an Uet tucea, and most of tbe bardy vegetables. Host people buy twice aa-many seeds aa they reqoirs and saw more than twice ns th'ck aa they need do
ASPARAGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
ASPARAGUS. Asparagus beds habitually rective good drawings with well-decayed manare, the more liberal the better, especially where atparague ia grown in rows across quarters, and not in tbe conventional way in beds.' When the latter are manured simply placs it upon the surface. In beds dig out soil from iha alleys bstweeu sllism, and put it neatly upon the manure so as to entirely cover it over.

BROCCOLI. BroccJi for hearting ia beat preferred daring winters by what is known as 'heeling' tbem over. The heads of the plant* are to be laid towards the son. Dig out, therefore, a spit of soil from near tho base if cacb plant ou its more minny side, then place the spade into the ground on its opposite aide, and with the aid of it and the foot force it over, m that it lies upon tbe ground. TLi* done, dig up more wil and lay it upon tbe atom up to the collar of eaeh plant, and a little extra upon the roota. In suoh position they withstand the hardest frosts and heart in well at the usual time. Even should ex cessively severe weather ocaur they arn thus, moreover, placed in poalUcn where litter can alao be strewn over tbem.

SCIENCE. ANATOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
BOIENOB. ANAT0X7. The lower limbs are attaobsd to the body by means of pel via, or haunob. The bony basin is a notable part of our anatomy from its relations, nob to the limbs only, but from the faot that it contains important organs, and injnry to tbe bones of which it couslst# is apt, of course, to affect these organs. The pelvis iteelf consists, as a whole, of two haunoh bones, joined iu front, and of that part of the spine we term the saomn, wedged in between them behind. It presents ns with a very solid structure, whion has to bear the weight of tho body above, and whioh, moreover, has to serve as a fulcrum or support for tbe movements of the legs. Any accident wbioh involve* fracture of wy part of the pelvia must, therefore, prove to be a errioua injury, if for any other reason than that ench a casualty ia not likely to ooour nnlesi a great deal of force hai beeo need. Most commonly we find euch ao ddenta following from falls from a height, or to the patient having beenanbjeot...

STORY OF MY CAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 February 1905
STORY OF MY CAT, A* aunt of mine left me an Angora cat, the most stupid animal I ever knew. Listen to a tale oe told me one winter ere before the glowing embera : 1 i was at the time two years old, and I was the fattest and moat ignorant cat imaginable. At this tender age I sttll showed all the presumption of the creature who disdains the lexuries of a home and hearth , notwithstanding the gratitude I owed kind Providence for placing me with your aunt, for the good woman adored me. The food was as fine as the sleefdog-no bread, no eonp, nothing but meat— lovely, rare meat. ' i i ' Well I Amidst all thms oomforts I had .but one desire, one dream, and that was te slip from tbe half -opened window and eaoape over the roofs. Caresses were stale to me; the softness of my bed— nauseating ; and I was eo fat as to turn my own stomach. I aighed for freedom tbe day long. *1 must tell you that onoe, fn looking out,' oa « opposite not four cats lighting with rnflled fur and bristling talla. 'V ...
