Improving Natural Wines. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894

Improving Natural Wines. -0- Dr Ludwig Gall has, by his interesting e xperimente, reduced the science of making good and palatable wines to such a certainty and by each simple means, that it is amazing such a simple process has not been onivervally fol lowed long ago. Grape juice contains water, sugar, free acids, tannin, gumny eubstiuces or gluten, coloring matter, fragrant or Ilavoring substances, embracing aroma or bormiet. A good natural or normal juice or mrot should contain all these ingredients in do? or proper proportion. If there is an excess of one and a lack of the other it cannot make a perfect wine. This is apparent to every reasoning wine maker. Munst which contains thee in exactly the right proportions is called a perfect ornormal must, and only by deter mining the amount of each of the ingredients in this socslled normal must can we gain the knowledge that will enable us to improve that which has not the necessary proportion of each. During unfavorable seasons grapes...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. A Haven of Rest. After the work is over, After the wcrryand heat, After the rush of daytime, We long for a coot retreat Many a man grows happy, Gone is care and donbt, Where all is peace and qu'ot, And the stars steal !oftly out After the day. The clock bids us rush our breakfest, And rush to the work at eight, ersh through the hours of moruning, lush haek to lut?h rather late. But all through the afternoon hours The hurry, worry and heat, Deep in the heart we are thinking O the calm ot that cool retreat After the day. We leave the trials behind us When at six we hurry home, Where wife and baby await us And supper's done to a turn, Then out in the qUiet gardlen . AmonR dowy Sowers wee?t, We thank God for his blesing, For the peace of this cool retreat After the day. -ELon aHaacoynD.

Melbourne Letter. -:o0: [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J WlVrAT constitutes an expert? In the ordinary sense of the word, the definition is easy. If, however, by the query, is meant a Government expert, it is difficult to furnish an answer. It is really astound. ing how many people consider themselves specially qualified to fill the position of Government expert, particularly when there is a decent salary hanging to the position. Frequently it has been a matter for wonder why the dairying in. I dustry has made such rapid strides since t the factory system was introduced. Those who have marvelled at the pros. perity of this industry, could hardly have known that our community is positively t alive with "dairy experts." No other a Victorian industry can boast of so great a an army of " experts " as hang round the fringe of the dairy business.

A CATTLE STAMPEDE. A PAGE FROM LIFE IN THE WILD WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894

A CATTLE STAMPEDE. A PAGE FROM LIFE IN THE WILD WEST. There are 800 cattle bunched on two acres of ground, every beast in the herd as wild and timid as a deer. The herders sit their broaches i at equal distances, and as the night growe a older and the blackness in the west growses 1 blacker. each herdeder whitles or sings. It I their way of giving the herd confidence. d There's a storm working up the valley from the west. Both men and beasts eel it coming. But for this the cattle would have been lying down long ago. They are packed together as if in cattle cars, the youner ones nenrvous and trembling, the velterans holding their heads high in the air and sniffing for the first scent of danger. us The herders ride in closer, but very cautiously. They can judge of the temper ofthe herd by the rasping and clashing of horns-by the V litter of the eyes of those on the outside of the bunch. a But the voices of the men, pitched low and plaintive, have a soothing effect and bye-and bye ther...

The Biology of Epidemics. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894

The Biology of Epidemics. EPIDEMIC diseases, naturally enough, occur almost always among peoples whose environ. ment are partly civilized, that is, civilized in regard to their fixity of abode, and barbarous as to their ideas of sanitation. The bar. barian in nearly every case is a nomad, whose wandering habits are his salvation. Living among the primitive drainage regula tions of most savage tribes, a long stay in one place would almost certainly create an epidemic, and this he escapes by constantly shifting his camp elsewhere. The early civilizations, and indeed tit -o?ut.,.. r the present, abandoned the nomadic life while retaining the insanitary surroundings, which made wandering an absolute necessity. The plague of London would undoubtedly have been lessened in mortality and horror by the existence of even the imperfect sanitary attention we give our dwelling places in the present day, and under perfect sanitary conditions would have been pre. vented altogether. The ever lessen...

A Terrible Battle. FIGHT BETWEEN A BULL AND A STALLION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894

A Terrible Battle. -------o FIGHT ICETWEEN A BULL AND A STALLION. A farmer at Bush Creek, Illinois, owned a fine Durham bull and a stallion of good breed. he had always turned his ball and stallion into the same lot, and thuee was apparently the best of feeling between them. Suddenly, however, the bull bergn frantically cavorting around the barn yard. The stallion far a time looked on in apparent consternation at the queer antics of his erstwhile eober friend, and then he began trotting around after the infuriated animal as it ran from one side of the enclosure to the other. Finally, the bull, after almost exhausting itself in an effort seemingly to throw some thing off his body, suddenly turned and made for the stallion. The new tactics of the bull took the horse by surprise, and it was only after his flank had been severely gored that he realised the situation, and thenbegan a battle that would have thrilled the heart of a Spanish ball fighter. The stallion made no attempt to kick...

A Thumper of the Sea, a o Almost everything in the Navy is in ac purely experimental stage, and its real value I will only bediscovered and tested when the next great war occurs--an eventuality that everyone hopes is very distant. Some of the American journals have bestowed the title of a "A temrble thumper of the sea" on b Admiral Ammen's naval ram, which is 1 almost completed for service. She is cer tainly a very formidable weapon, and it is difficult to see with what she can be met, ex cepting torpedoes. Guns can be of no use e against what of her convex armored deck is allowed to appear above water, with athick ness of steel and an angle of resist. ance that must inevitably deflect any projectiles, even if they are lucky enough to hit so small a target. She is a ram and 1 nothing else, and carries a conning tower for the captain, protected by IS inches of steel, from which safe retreat, says onepaper, "he would direct the movements of his de structive craft, his attention undive...

ST. PATRICK.

Be his religion Catholic or Protestant, be his place of abode where heaven assigned t it him, by the graves of his fathers, in the t green " Island of the Saints," or where the fate of his race may have fixed it, in some foreign land-for each and every Irishman a common bond exists in the devotion-to use p thatwordinitegrand oldRomanoence-wih whichheregardshis Patron Saint.
