RAINFALLIN THE PASTORAL DISTRICTS, ?-'?; A GENERAL DOWNPOUR, [From tlie Melbourne Argui.] Sydney, November 4. The mopt cheering news received for weeks past was the intelligence that rain bad fallen over a large area in the northern districts of the colony on Saturday, with occasional showers on Sunday. A large extent of country has been covered by the downpour. A line drawn from Bourke through Cobar west of Forbes, and thence to the coastline at Jervis Bay, would divide the wet area from the dry, the rain having fallen north of thisline. This division would of course omit fjuch im portant districts as those in the neighborhood of Euston, Wentworth, Deniliquin, Urana, and Menindie. The downpour hi the north and north-west is by far the best which has fallen since February. On the Manning River, at Tareo, for instance, 5J in. fell. The following are some of the principal re cords:— Armidale, 375 in.; Barringun, '2'78in.; Bingara, 3*55 in^ ; Bourke, 1*96 in. ; Brewar rina, 2*75 in. ; ...

AGRICULTURAL BUREAUS. Richman's Creek-— Octobeb 1. Present — Messrs. W. Freebairn (chairman), E. Roberts, A. Nicholson, J. J. Searle, M. Hender, P. J. O'Donoghue, A. Knauerhase, A. Searle, J. McSkimming, J. McColl (hon. sec. ), and one visitor. Mr. M. Hender read a paper on marketing dairy produce. He said dairying has become an important industry, but as prices are low it is necessary to work economically and put the mroduce on the market at the lowest possible cost. He thought all northern pro ducers should form a strong company and establish factories, say, one at Adelaide and one at Broken Hill. He estimated that a factory in Adelaide would make 8 tons of butter per week, or 17,920 lb. This would be 931,840 lb. in 52 weeks, which at Sd. per lb. would realise £31,061 Os. Sd. Commission at 5 per cent, on this would amount to £1,553 Is. 4d., and Id. per lb. for making, &c, of 931,840 lb. would come to £3,882 13s. 4d.; total for making, commission, &c, £5,435 14s. 8d...
Horticulture. GARDENING FOR THE WEEK. THE PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
llortimltate. GARDENING FOR TEE WEEK. The Plains. Flower Garden.— All shrubs and trees that wore p1 an ted late in the winter will require constant attention in watering ; they will have formed very little root yet and will therefore depend entirely on artificial assistance. This should show the advantage of planting these things in the autumn, as by this time they would be well established and would require little or no assistance to carry them through the summer. A mulching of somekind should bo put round'all newly-planted shrubs and trees, so that the roots may be kept cool as well as moist. Any summer annuals put out now will require shading for a day or two, or until they become established, and the soil about the roots must also be kept moist or they will quickly perish. Mulch dahlias and supply them at intervals with liquid manure ; stakes should be put to the stems when they are about a foot high, as they are easily broken off at the base. Put in a variety of cuttings of the...
HAPPY VALLEY WATERWORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
SAPPY VALLEY WATERWORKS. Two carters from the Happy Valley water works, having a complaint to make about in sufficient pay, were sent by the Commissioner of Public Works to the Engineer-in-Cbief on Friday week That officer informed them that as they had made a statement in writine to the resident engineer that statement would be most carefully considered and an answer would be forwarded to them in a few days. The nature of that request is understood to'be that in view of the increased cost of horse feed the men should have an increase in wages. Several teamsters called at The Advertiser Office in the afternoon and questioned the statement of the Commissioner of Public Works that the men engaged with their teams at the Happy Valley works were making the satisfactory wages ne alleges that they are. They said the average earnings «f a two-horse team were Us. 6d. per day, and for a three horse team 13s. 6d. Against this it costs them 8 bass of chaff at Is. 4d. per bag, 5 bushels of bran...
PASTEURISING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
PASTEURISING MILK. The following directions for performing this operation at homo are issued by the Wisconsin Experiment Station, U.S.A. : — 1. Use only fresh milk (not more than 12 hours old) for this purpose. 2. Place milk in cleanbottles or fruit cans, fill ing to a uniform level. (If pint and quart cans are used at the same time an inverted dish or piece of wood will equalise the level.) Set these in a flat-bottomed tin pail and fill with warm water to the same level as milk. An in verted pie tin punched with holes will serve as a stand on which to place the bottles during the heating process. 3. Heat water in pail until the temperature reaches 160 deg. Fahr., then remove from source of direct heat, cover with a cloth or tin cover, and allow the whole to stand for half an hour. 4. Eemove bottles of milir and cool them as rapidly as possible without danger to bottles, and store in a refrigerator.

MR. JOHN EOWELL. BOUND FOR THE WEST. THE WORKS AT ILLAWARRA. Mr. John Howell, the well-known mine manager and expert, was in Adelaide last week on his way to the Golden West. During an interview Mr. Howell »iid:— 'The object of my visit to West Australia is to make a short inspection of the mineB in some of the principal districts, to erect works on certain mines, and to put exploring parties in the field to explore and take up mines on behalf of a large London syndicate, which I represent, formed for that purpose.

HORTICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
HORTICULTURAL NOTES. At a meeting of the California State Board of Horticulture in 1888 a premium was offered for the best paper on ' Crystallised fruits,' and the prize was won by J. J. Pratt, of Yuba City. As the matter is one of great interest in the colony we publish the paper, which was as follows: — 'The process of preserving fruits in a crystallised or glazed form is attracting considerable attention at the present time. This process, although comparatively new in California, has been extensively operated in south-western France for years, the United States having been heavy importers, paying fancy prices for product. The process is quite simple. The theory is to extract the juice from the fruit and replace it with sugar syrup, which, upon hardening, preserves the fruit from decay, and at the same time retains the natural shape of the fruit. All kinds of fruit are capable of being preserved under this process. Though the method is very simple there is a certain skill re quire...

Mining Intelligence (For other Mining News see page 27.) THE BROKEN HILL MINES. IMPROVED PROSPECTS. Broken Hill, November 7. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
fining intelligence (For other Minim Newt seepaje 27.) THE BROKEN HILL MINES. IMPROVED PROSPECTS. Broken HilL November 7. The gradual all-round improvement in the prospects of the mines along the main line of lode is due mainly to the advances made in the processes for the treatment of sulphides, and only in a slight degree to any fresh developments in the underground workings. One noteworthy ' exception is that of the Junction, the new develop ment in the western section of which has been of a highly satisfactory nature. It is all the more important, as it opens un a lode not hitherto known to exist in the mine and of a richness much above the average of Barrier sulphides. ThiB new body, which occurs in a western crosscut from the 550-ft. level of Mclntyre's shaft, has been opened up to a considerable extent north and south and a winze down over 35 ft. in the main body proves the ore to maintain its' value on the north. The new ore body has so far been proved to extend to within 60...

MISCELLANEOUS. Dublin, October 29.— The weather h is been exceedingly hot with a strong north wind blowing, accompanied by cloudB of dust. This has made the country look very dry and parched. — Haymaking is in full swing, and the crop is very lignt in some parts of the dis trict.— A cricket was played here on Fridav October 25, between the Port Wakeneld and Dublin (combined), the visitors winning. In the evening a very successful concert was given by the Port Wakefield Company and local talent. Mr. R. Butler, M.P., took the chair, and after the concert a ball followed. Bendleby, November 1. — The weather still continues dry and for the most part hot which is having the effect of ripening the crops off too rapidly. The grass has dried off. A con siderable number of young locusts have hatched here this season. Rabbits are also very numerous in the hills, aud are eating the wheat crops adjoining.

THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS. Hermann's Landing, November 5. — W e have not had any rain now for 10 weeks, and it is surprising how somo of the wheat plants keep their green appearance. There will be but little wheat fit for reaping. Haymaking is general now, but the yield is very light. Wallaroo, .November 0. — Heaping has already commenced in the Tickera district. Mr. Lower was the first to deliver wheat, the sample being clean and fine ; Messrs. J. Dar ling & Sou were the purchasers. In about two week's time reaping will be general, but the average will bo low, the late sown crops having suffered by the dry weather. The hay harvest is in full swing, but so far from reports to hand the average is very little over 7 cwt. to the acre. Blytii, November 7. — Haymaking is now in full swing in this district, and a considerable quantity is being cut. Some of the leading chaff merchants have visited this district, and in some instances have done business in this line. This has led ot...
