BOOLEROO, MAY 23. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

BOOLEROO, Mat 23. In this hundred we had oar share oE tbe rains tliat fell after being so auxioosly looked for, and they came in good time for the seed sown. Doubtless the numerous farmers who had to cart their water would have preferred the rain earlier, bat they now seem satisfied with the quantity that has fallen, their dams being f ally supplied. The wheat sown previous to the rains is looking splendid and making good progress. The feed is also coming on, although we have had a few frosty nights wbioh will tend somewhat to check its growth. To-day the veatberhas been delightfully bright!. Tbe change in the aspect of the couutry whioh now greets the eyeis very marked. New life has been infused into the operations of those who have not as jet finiibed, bnt several farmers have finished seeding, and are patting the grubber into opera tion for clearing purposes.— The roadmen under Surveyor Irvine have made sundry repairs to the road leading from Tarcowie and Pekina to Port Germein. ...

THE FUCHSIA: ITS PROPAGATION AND CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE FUCHSIA: ITS PROPAGATION AND CULTIVATION. For outdoor or indoor culture, in the shrubbery, in the flower-bed, in the con servatory, window, dining-hall, or on tits exhibition table, a well-grown Fuchsia never suffers by comparison with any other flower. It grows readily in one depart ment or other of the garden, in town and in country, in every temperate clime. It is the beloved of the cottager, and a favorite of Mugs; it is a source of pleasure to the cultured and uncultured1, and might be said to be almost inseparable from civilisation. Generally speaking our climate fa not favorable to the extensive cultivation of the Fuchsia— an absence of atmospheric moisture being prejudicial to its health; but it can to grown here by artificial meanB to ft high state oC perfection. Tbe first species recorded is F. coccmea, a scarlet and purple kind, introduced from. Chili in. 1788. The genus was then named in honor of Leonard Fuchs, a celebrated German botanist. F. gracilia and F. macro S...

Poultry. WHAT I KNOW OF POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

§mtlfrg+ WHAT I KNOW OF POULTRY. [By 'Amateur' in the New York Weekly Tribune.'] ia purchasing my stock I wielied to get the best breeds, and at the same time to procure two breeds that were as diverse as possible in appearance, habits, temperament, and color of eggs, that I might if possible settle the rexed question as to the danger «f tainting a breed by permitting the hens to pair with roosters of another race. After much investigation I decided to procure Light Brahmas and Brown Leghorns, a se lection which I could not improve even after the experience of five years, consider ing the object in view. To secuTe my stock 1 purchased some common fowls at themarket price, and eggs of the breed I desired, of men who, by their skill and honest practices, had won an enviable reputation. The common fowls not only paid their way during the season, but xeaied me in addition a nice lot of Liijht Brahmas and Brown Leghorns. Late in the winter I sold the common fowls for more than I paid for...

THE THOROUGHBRED HERDS AND FLOCKS OF GREAT BRITAIN. BY IMPROVER. THE SHORTHORN BREED OF CATTLE. PART 1. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

?^ ? : ? THE THOROUGHBRED HERDS AJSD FLOCKS OF GREAT BRirAIN. Bx Improves. THB SHOBXHOBN BBEBD OF CATrLB. Pabt 1. As the history of the plough would be a history of the agriculture of the world, so an account of the origin and progress of what are called the shorthorn breed of cattle would be the history of the agriculture of a certain part of Britain ; but the one has been more clear than the other. We possess drawings of the plough as used 600 B.C. and can trace the improvements upon it for two thousand years ; but we are in doubt as to the breed used as a base for the old-Durhams, as we hold no earlier record of individual miimriH than 1822, when the English Herd-Book was estab lished. All previous to this is necessarily largely conjectural, although the first on this record, Studley Bull (626), red and white, bred by Mr. Sharter, of Chilton, was calved 85 years previously. The com pilers eeem to have been justified in going thus far back for memoranda banded down as well as the ...

LINSEED AND WHEAT GRUEL FOE CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

LINSEED AND WHEAT GRUEL FOE CALVES. A great deal has been said, written, but chiefly advertised, respecting the best sub stitute for miik in the rearing of calves. With your permission I will give your readers my experience on the matter. For upwards of half a century my father and I have used linseed and wheat ground finely together in equal proportions, and made sruel to suDDlement our ' sradd ' milk, nritfi the very best of results. We let our calves suck the cow for about ten days, then take them to the calf bouse and feed them with 'raw' milk for two. or three meals to accustom them to the bucket and the hand of the feeder, after which we wean them on ' scald ' milk and gruel until they are about twelve or fourteen weeks old, when they entirely live by their teeth. We always put hay, grass, turnips, meal, &C-, according to tune of year, in their boxes for them to eat a little. Of course the calf could be removed from the cow much earlier if it suited the owner, but I be...

BENEFITS TO SOIL AND CLIMATE FROM TREE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

m BENEFITS TO SOIL ANB CUMATK FROM TREE PLANTING. [From Mr. J. S. Brown's ' Practical Treatise on Tree Culture.'] That large bodies of trees have a direct influence on the atmospheric changes of a district or country is, I think, in these daya of so much statistical and other reliable in formation, now a recognised fact. If wa look back and examine ancient, mediaeval. and modern history, we there find many very noted examples of decrease of rains, dried up rivers, extended deserts, and de pleted populations, simply from the clear ing of extensive forests; while again, on the other hand, it has been observed that where large tracts ol country have been laid under a crop of trees, and ?which, pre vious to this having been done, were desig nated dry and comparatively unproductive parts, small streams of water nave been found where none formerly existed, and the general nature of the districts has been im proved to such an extent that they lava become highly favorable for agricultural p...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

JtfixML Ihe usual trio of association matches took piece on Saturday, May 21, whea the Norwoods met the Victorians on the Oval, the Forts met the South Parks on the Alberton ground, while the AdcIaide-cum-KensingtonB played the South Adelaides at Kensington. Ihe account of the matches will be found below. By far the most interesting as well as tbe closest was that between the first-named clubs at head-quarters, which, as will be seen from the details, resulted after a moBt determined and exciting straggle in a draw. A mere evenly-contested game has never been witnessed on the Oval, while the fair play and friendly spirit shown by both sides speaks very strongly to the improvement that we hoped to see take place in the conduct of football matches duiing the present season. Although the game was a fast one, and the situation, towards the close, psculiorly critical, wo were glad to notice an absesse of anything . like unfairness or unfriendliness, and in no single instance was the umpi...

Cricket. LICENSED VICTUALLERS v. COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

fetrftei LlCEKEED VlCTCAttEES V. GOMJIEBCIAL Tbatellebs* A cricket match was played between the above clubs on the Oval on Wednesday, May 25. Tile attendance was very meagre, and this is to be regretted, inasmuch as the proceeds at tbe gates are to be given to the Children's Hos pital. There are several ways to account for tbe smellness of the attendance. II is now a well-known fact that people generally have no inclination to witness an exhibition of cricket that will not compare favorably with that displayed by school bays, even if the match be for tbe benefit of a charity. Again, it should be understood that there is a season for all things, and to say the least it was very ill-advised to play a cricket match in the middle of tbe football season. However, we give tbe gentlemen who contributed their assist ance on this occasion, and to those who were engBged in the match ail due credit for good in tention?, and can only regret that their cervices were so little appreciated. Of tbe...

NORWOODS v. VICTORIANS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

Norwoods v. Victorians. The meeting of these clubs had long besa looked forward to, aud although eome of the Korwood division had openly avowed thai, nothing but mere accident could lose them tbe match, and had freely tendered a shade of odds on the result of the game, there were many who anticipated a very close contest, and who be lieved the Victorians caoable of Vinidinir t-.hmr oven with the invincible blue and reds. That a large srncunt of interest attaohed to the issue was evident from the numbers that assembled on Saturday, May 21, to witness the struggle, pot fewer than a thousand odd visitors passing into the Oval on that afternoon. Long before the time appointed for cemmencement, the stands were well filled with spectators, a good number of the fair sei being conspicuous in that portion set apart for their use. The day was very fine, though a trifle warm for football operations, and the ground was in capital order . Shortly after 3 o'clock the two teams defiled from the pa...

Horticulture. HORTICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

Pflrtkulim HORTICULTURAL ROTES. What is known as ' the section system of cropping ' in France is thus described by a market gardener in the columns of the Gardtn ; — ' The gardens at Vaugirard are principally along both sides of one long street, seldom more tban two acres in ex tent, generally smaller — walled m by rude walls 3 feet or 4 feet high, sometimes rising to 5 feet or 6 feet, against the road. In a comer near the road is the dwelling hcuse with the copious litter stacks and manure heaps. The most conspicuous ob ject in almost every garden was the large round water tank, raised 12 feet or 15 feet from the ground, and supported on a strong brick pier, to which water is raised by means of horse or steam power, which, with pipes laid on and ho3a, enables the proprietor to water a la lance, as it is called, the whole of the' garden in a few minutes. Those I visited, and they were typical, were divided into equal sec tions, to fit the amount of lights and boxes and cloches (bell...

HINTS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

HINTS FOE FARMERS. Harness Oil. — Harness oil made of one gallon of neatsfoot oil, with four ounces of lampblack, well mixed, is ample and effec tive. Milch Cows. — One very important quality in a good milch cow is a powerful digestive apparatus. To hunt for a cow which is a small eater is not entirely wise. Gas Tab as a Wood Pbeserveb. — Gas tar can be used to prevent the unwel come 'giving out?' of stakes for fences, vineyards, and other purposes. A current writer says, justly, that it is a useless ap plication to green wood because it does not enter the pores, and is often worse than useless above ground by causing the wood to crack open and admit moisture. Bat if the wood is well dried first and then heated before putting on the tar, which should also be hot, the wood will be penetrated, and its whole structure thoroughly secured. Essbx Pigs.— The Farmers' Review tells its readers that ' the improved Essex is one of the best of the smaller breeds of swine,' but that the breed ha...

THE CUP DAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE CUP DAY. ' New Zealand takes the Birthday Cup with Mata.' — Extract from ' Mentor,'' in Advertiser, May 26. A more wretched day for the Birthday Cup could hardly have been imagined than that on which the popular race of 1881 was decided. From early morning heavy storm-clouds hong over the city, threatening to empty themselves every hour, but they hovered around in a pro voking manner just long enough to make toe hopeful imagine that they intended ultimately to clear off, srtd then, jost in the very nick o£ time, and just as the horses were being stripped fcr the big race, down they came, with a ven geance, and emptied themselves with unrelent iug fierceness on the assembled thousands.. - Whether or not the rain interfered in any material* manner with the sport itself £? a euettioB that only those connected with-iba.. horses engaged can be fairly asked to reply to, but as far as the visitors were concerned it inter fered in a most unpleasant way, and quite spoilt what otherwise w...
