NEW TREATMENT OF CUTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 2 July 1887
NEW TREATMENT OF CUTTINGS.. The common custom has been to either plant grape .cuttings. directly'in; the vine; yard or to plant them in nursery and then transplant them into the vineyard' the fol lowing winter.- The : objection to the first! method is the improbability: of getting a .good stand of growing vines? and the second is objectionable ·because the -vineyard loses almost a season'sagrowth. J. H. Sewell, of Central Colony,' has adopted a. plan which is appapently, a decided improvement on the old methods. Mr. Sewell planted his cut tings some two months ago by putting them in a,,deep trench, top ends,down. They were covered entirely with earth to a depth of three or four inches. He is nd6w trans= planting his cuttings into the vineyard, the, roots have already started finely, while the buds are just beginning to swell. : The fact that. the lower end of the cuttings were, so near the `surface aicount's for their'starting so early. : Upon some samples shown, us the roots are al...

THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. LOVE, COURTSHIP, AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 July 1887
THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. SB SILrAs SNELL;. d LOVE, COURTSHIP, AND MARRIAGE. The .question.( of love, courtship and tl marriage is one of universal interest; few I men -have lived, to grow bald-headed with out having given the-subject some calm con sideration. Dr. Anna Longshore Potts, a m lady who knows nearly everything off by heart, and can make excellent pies, is the al latest to trot out with a theory for revising ot the conjugal code of rules. This lady thinks G she can teach the modern young idea how to m pop the question and fix up a marriage in tl first-class business-like style, and with due regard to effect, in one lecture, admission a l shilling, back seats sixpence. / Heretofore the young, man has waltzed l airily into matrimony simply because he sh was mashed and she was agreeable; he cc never went and sat in a quiet place, . and T communed with himself, and put ice on his m h'ad to assist him in figuring out calmily and .as dispassionately whether the girl had a "con- sil...

Moon,:of the, Ne: w York firror. tf (Continued.) w CHOOSING ROUTES. ti : In addition to our coupons, we received a Pullman car ticket, for which we had to pay s'ix dollars extra to Ogden, entitling us to a certain seat in a parlor and sleeping car. Thisseat is yours for this particular journey, and the ticket is collected by the porter, and a .berth check given you in its place. On most of the roads the Pullman car is in charge of a conductor, who is assisted in the L4 discharge of his duties by a colored porter. Our experience was, of .the former, that n they were generally men of some education, m ready to point out and give you information,. ,willing to assist in making the time pass oi pleasantly ; in fact, with such men as Tarble la and Johnson, of the Burlington, and Carter he and Holden, of Rio Grande, we found our il' ,journey much improved by their efforts to th amuse and entertain us.

Scientific Notes [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 July 1887
Dr. Brown-Sequard, the celebrated phy-, siologist,. says-he.-has rdiscovered that the moment the skin of the neck is cut all sensi bility disappears, and 'that the best means of, resuscitating persons asphyxiated by smoke, coal-gasor wateit is to apply galvanism to the skin of the neck-a method he has successfully employed. Some observations made in France by iM. Cosson miy throw light upon many mysteri ous fires. Inone instance spontaneous firing arose from an air current heated at' 77d. F. only. The wood slowlyr carbonized at` that temperature, and, ,being thus rendered ex tremely porous, a rapid absorption of oxygen resulted, and sufficient heat was then pro duced to inflame, the dry: material. In an. 'other case the warmth from the air-hole of a stove was sufficient to set fire to the wobd work. - ..

Animal Magnetism Extraordinary. A THRILLING PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 23 July 1887
Animal Magnetism, Extra-. ordinary. A THRILLING PERFORMANCE; Since 1775, when Franz Mesmer first made known the discovery of what' he held to be the medical value of a- force in' nature to which he gave the name of "animal mag netism," down to the present hour, the very existence of the said force has been in dis pute. Doubtless there is nothing to excite surprise in this. " The pretentions of persons calling themselves " mesmerists " have been in a great number of instances, to say. the least, greatly open to question. -In some cases, there can be no doubt, the grossest imposition has been practiced, trickeries of the most barefaced kind palmed -off as expositions of mesmeric phenomena. The inventor, or rather discoverer, of the extra ordinary power exercisable by one 'human being over another by the application of animal magnetism left Germany covered with honours, and-when, in 1778,. he -betook himself to Paris, his system of medical treatment was accepted -by . a number of the' ...
