Interesting Ceremony QUEEN OF THE ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914
Interesting Ceremony QUEEN OF THE EOSES. In a recent issue of a well-known pei iodical there was an interesting ? de scription of a pretty ceremony held an nually at Nanterre, a small town nea: to the gay capital of France. Seem ingly every June, that luxurious i^ontb oi roses, there is chosen in this little town a rosiere or Kose Queen, who reigns for a whole year over her sub jects. 'Kie choice of a queen rests with tile councillors of Nanterre, and they are not influenced by beauty alone, but the prospective rosiere must be good and fond of well-doing, and the bearing of the office is no sinecure, for the queen is expected to be present at every christening, wedding, or funeral in the village, and at the local festivities it is her duty to collect for charity. The crown.ng ceremony is a pretty sight, and the procession on its way to the church meets at the mayor's house, where the members of the different so cieties and tlie town dignitaries form up and t:.ke part.

THE NAME VIOLET. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914
THE NAME VIOLET. Many explanations have been given of the origin of the name of this sweet flowar. . From Hmer down to Austin poets have not failed to mention thia popular favourite. Shakespeare says: That strain again-it had a dying fall; Oh! it came o'er my ear like the sweet south That breathes upon a bank of violets. Stealing and giving odours. Various etymologies are assignedl to the name, but the mostly likely is that which derives its origin from the word via (wayside), whence the sweet frag rance of the flower so often greets the passers by.
HUMMING BIRDS AND FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 19 September 1914
HUMMING BIRDS AND FLOWERS. It has long been known that insects assist plants by carry the fertilising pollen from flower to flower, but the fact has only recently been prominently brought forward that humming birds are just ns effective distributors of pol len as insnets are. It has been shown that these little birds which are as fond as bees of the honey of flowers, carry the pollen grains in great quantity, not only on Shoir feathers but on their long bills also. Indeed, so well suited is the humming bird to do othe work of dis tribution, without any intention of its own. that the question has been raised whether it may not be the most bene ficial of all the unconscious friends thai the flowers have in the animal world.
