Japanese Yeast. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

Japanese Yeast. In one of the recent American Con sular Reports the preparation of Japanese Icq/'i (yeast) is described by Professor Georgeson, of the Imperial Agricultural College at Tokio. Koji is made not only in special factories, but also in sake ('rice beer 'I breweries. The materials used are water, rice of the common starchoy kind only, and tone (seed or leaven), the spores of a fungus (Eurotium oryzw, Ahlb). It is this latter substance which, when germinating on the rice, changes a portion of the starch into dextrose and dextrin, and produces the fermentation. Tho rice is carefully washed, and tho thin covering of the seed is always removed. It is then al lowed to remain for some hours in water, and having been steamed, it is spread on mats to cool, and when the tempera ture has fallen to about 100 deg.Fahr. the tane is scattered uniformly on the mass, and then thoroughly mixed with it. The whole is then allowed to remain for eighteen or twenty hours, covered with mats, aft...

A Remarkable Adventure with Tigers. The Calcutta ' Englishman ' reports that Mr. Gabbett, district engineer at Abu Road, had a remarkable adven ture with tigers lately. Mr. Gabbert was travelling by trolly between Abu Road and Rob. when one of the gate keepers gave him Malar of a family of tigers in an adjoining jungle, and Mr. Gabbett, accompanied by his trolly-men and the old gatekeeper, started at once for the scene of operations. He had not long to wait before three fine tigers broke cover, and he dropped the fore nost dead with a well directed shot. He then fired at the next one '; but though the brute was hard hit, he managed to make off towards the river bed in the vicinity. Mr. Gabbett then had a shot at the third, and succeeded in wounding him badly ; but the animal beat a re treat into a cave hard by. In the meantime the tiger which had gone towards the river bed fell in with a shepherd, whom he mauled rather badly. Mr. Gabbett opened fire on stripes, who was hit and rolle...

Horse Dentistry. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

Horse Dentistry. More troublo with and lack of con dition of horses are duo to ulcerated and irregular teeth than is generally supposed. They should bo romoved with forceps. Thoro is no reason to doubt that a horso with ulcerated teeth suffers as intensely from toothache as a human subject. Irregular growth or fractures of- tho enamel on the outer edges make the teeth so rough as to in jure the inside of the cheek, sometimes causing ulcers. In other cases some of the grinders grow more slowly than others, and fail to meet those in the op posite jaw, causing 'quidding ' or im perfect mastication of the food. The remedy is to file tho teeth into the proper shape. Horse dentistry is now recognised as an important branch of veterinary practice. — 'American Agri culturist.'

VISIT OF THE NEWCASLE TEAM. A formidable team from tho Coaly City visi ted us on Queon'a Birthday to taokle tho Parra matta team. Owing to the wet weather there was not muali fun in the game. Frazer cap tained Parramatta and Donaldson did ditto for Newcastle. Runs were out of tho question, but good kicking and dribbling marked tho gamo of both teams. Neither side scored, and consequently a draw was tho result. Frasor, Griffim, Robberds, Moses, Wade, Simpson, Bauchop, Taylor and the Brothers Tunks played well for Parramatta, and Mr. L. Bowden gave every satisfaction as umpire. At the conclusion of tho match, the players adjourned to Cripps' Hotel, where after going through certain ablutions rendered necessary after playing in the mud, tho visiting team wore entertained at a dinner by the local club.

CASTLE HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

CASTLE HILL. As in other plaoes the proverbial ' oldest resident ' can't remember any thing like it before. The wind and rain combined were indeed a great power in the district, but, beyond rooting up trees and drenching inside and outside the houses, nothing serious resulted. The rain will do more good than harm. Mr. F. C. Cox lost a lot of mandarin oranges, the trees being stripped. Mr. Harris had a fine lot of passion fruit vines trellised up for a distance- of about 150 yards.;They are now all on the ground. The Eev. G. Macintosh was greatly in convenienced. Every room in the par sonage was deluged and the f amily did not have a dry corner to squeeze into. Cot? sheds and stables are at a premium. Taken as a whole we escaped very well and have no reason to cry out very loud.

Large quantities of earth were washed out of all orchards and cultivated land, and in many cases fruit trees were broken down by the wind, or rooted Up by the rush of water Thus Mr. E. Peace lost a lot of his ipple trees a whole row being washed right away, and other orchardists mffered in like manner. Mr. J. Mason Df Nelson, had 400 , trees swept away, mdmany others broKen down. Some af the ornamental trees in Eouse Hill and Box Hill gardens were also blown Dver, and in the bush, large gums and ironbarks have been torn up by the roots. The creeks were all very high and swept quantities of fencing away. The roads have also been badly treated. There is a large hole in the bridge near Mr. J.

PROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

PROSPECT. There is nothing alarming-, such as loss of life, &c, to report from this dis trict. I suppose tho severity of the re cent heavy rain made people at the re servoir feel as uncomfortable as any whore. Their tenements, as your readers are fully aware, are of the slendorest description, and tho driving rain made its way into almost every house, maldng lif o to the poor unfortu nates, under the circumstances, not worth living for. Fine weather is hailed with delight. Tho hospi tality of Mr. Neil Eadbourn, of the Commercial Hotel, will not soon be forgotten. Ho opened his house, billiard room, and all availablo space, to those who found it impossible to stay in their own homes. I have just hoard that a death occur red through the recent storm. A man by the name of Eyan died through not getting proper attention, as the creek was impassable. In cousequonoo of tho sudden rise of tho creeks, the inhabi tants wore poorly supplied with the necessaries of life. No carts could ...
