A Peculiar Disease. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
S pecullar Disease. THE fretting and wearing cares of business, domestic relations, political life, other affairs, with laborious brain-work, social dissipation, and uhygienio habits, have caused such an increase in the number of invalfds from nervous exhaustion, that this disease is now recognised as a distinct malady. Bodily health and welfare are neglected for wealth, position, honor and distinction. The business mas, by close application to his bunsmnes, hurried and irregularmeals, loss of sleep and the neglect of exercise, at last finds his health failing and himself incapable of meeting the demands on his energies. So it is with a grest spasy people, They eat in a burry, sleep as if in a hurry and very little, toil long and late, with little or no recreation, until falling health warns them of this sad neglect of duty. This tendency, which is hecoming general, has for its outcome but one result-impairment of the physical and incapacity of the mental energies. Ask a physician w...
The Peach Leaf Curl. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
The Peach Leaf Curl. Fraitgrowere who have suffered loss from what is kuown as curl.leaf disease in their peach trees will be glad to learn that a4 effectual remedy has been discovered. As article in the "American Agriculturist," de tailing the results of experiments at the Michi gan Experiment Station, contains the following remarks : This disease seems to be no respecter of localities, and the character of the soil has bat little effect, accept that it is less prevalent speO high and dry soils than on those that are wet and cold. The true leafrcurl is caused by a parasitic funegus which attacks the interior tissues of the leaves. As a result, they become thickened and puffed out, and frequently take on a decidedly curled appearance. In severe cases the leaves have a whitish leek, the color being due to the multitude ofat moinuts white spores that are developed by the fungus. The leaves thus affected generally drop from the trees, and if the conditions are favorable to the growth o...
Depth to Sow Wheat [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
Depth to -Sow Wheat --o- Most interesting, valuable tests with wheat continue to be made, and reported on at the American experimental stations. The follow. ing is from Ohio, a famous cmai.e anud wheat section: Depth for Covering.-In the overage of four years experimente wheat covered liu, or less hsa producdat the rate of 31 bushele per acre; that covered 2in. has produced :.5 bushels, and that covered 3in. 34 bushels. Judging from a smaller number of experiments it d?es notseem advisable to easow deeper than lit. Drilling and Rollmg.--In the average of six years, wheat sown with a roller-press drill has yielded about 8 per cent, more than that sown with the ordinary drill. Moreu or less increase bas followed the roller.press in alaset erery season but a single trial has given results un favorable to the use of the common roller after seeding, Broadcasting v.

SThe Encampment. Captain Lloyd, of the local Mounted Rifes has kindly supplied us with the following remarks by the officer pom manding, on the late encampment: ATT , rpxcc..--Good, but a great many who put dawn their names, even in the final dist, did not come. The attendance of saddlers was good, and they did their work (which was con tinuous) to the entire satisfaction of the commanding officer. The atten dance of farriers was very bad. The farrier major was the only representa tive. 4.rrjngements must be made at futureoamps for 8 proper number of farriers to attend. APPEoRAwcE--MtT AND OeosES.

There is a large home market for this product, which will take much time before producers overtajce, owing to the fact that dax fibre enters ieto the composition of a large'.number of materials in daily use amongst the community. One great advan. - age the flax Industry possesses over others is this-it gives profitable employment to both an agricultural and manufacturing population.

An Astronomical Puzzle. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
An Astronomical Puzzle. The great size, durableness and special character of the red spot of Jupiter have naturally attracted much discussion, and a number of theories have been broached to ex plain the nature of the spot and to account for its long durance. Some writers have re* ;arded it as part of the solid material of Jupiter,bnt this theory is praotioallynegatived by the fact that it has shown an irregularity of motion Unless we admit that the rotation period of Jupiter is extremely variable, and has experienced considerable retardation in recent years, we cannot allow that the red spot forms a portion of the sphere. Others believe the spot to represent acondensation of material floating or suspended above the sur face of the planet, and that variations of motion and tint are impressed upon it by the action of the Jovian atmosphere, which is constantly in a state of turmoil. Another idea has been mooted to the effect that the spot may possibly be an opening in the atmosphere, t...
POPULAR SCIENCE. Self-Control. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Self-Control Allowing excitement and losing one's temper takes all sweet and pure feeling out of life. You may get up in the morning with a cheerful and joyous heart, and start out for the day as happy as a bird, but if at some slight provocation you give way to your temper, the joyous feeling vaniebshes, and a load as heavy as lead is rolled upon the heart, and you go through the day disturbed and feeling like a culprit. The only way to be a comfort to yonurelf or to others isto keepeelf control, and in all circumstances cherish a cheerful spirit.-Annorr. .-0
A Manure Basin. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
A Manure Basin. --o It is a common illustration with those who would hold up the farmer's ignorance to view, that the practice still largely ezists of allowing the esence of the manure heap to drain away at its own sweet will. The different plans adopted by farmers to protect the fertilising propertcies of the heap are numerous. Some prefer to allow the liquid to run into a recep tacle. and spray it over the heap occasionally, which is an excellent practice. Others use the liquid directly for manurial purposes, but all are ed that its preservation is necessary. The following is the plan which a prominent farmer and experimentalisaht adopts, theprinciple being applicable to all farms. In stacking the manure on fields it should be universally fol lowed: A largo basin was scooped up, some ift. deep in the middle and gently sloping to all sides, so that a henavilyloaded waggon can be pulled up without unduly straining the team. The bottom was found to be of a clayey nature, so that seep...

Short Skirts. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
Short Skirts. A writer in the London "Daily I'ews" says "there really seems to be no reason why ladies who have confidence in their ankles should not wear short skirts. These are not indecorous, they do not drag in duet and mud, and most women wear them in the Highlands and ons the Alps. "Dear Lucy Stone," we hear, was at the Conference; she had been a Bloomer, and was not ashameed of it. Why ahould shs have been ashamed ? Ridicule killed "blooming," but people should not mind ridicule. All great innorators have been laughed at. '"It is," says a lady, "the Psychic moment for short skirts." This lady, not unnaturally, had become confused at Chicago. The Psychic people did hold a conference, but their talk was of ghosts, not of short skirts, which they regard as indifferent. The' psychological moment' was what Mrs Malaprop, of Psychago, I mean Chicago, had in her mind." These are the sentiments of a man of taste and observation.
A Natural Narcotic Water [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
A Natural Narcotic Water There is, or till very recently was, a stream flowing from a thountain sidenear Butte Creek, in Plumas County, U.S.A., which possessed very strong narcotic qualities. Its water only differed in taste from that of other springs by bein&more brackish. Less thsa hualfepoi thirst have died under its effects. It has long been known to the Indians, who have given it a name which means in English "The lig Sleep Water." Superintendent Stout, of the U.S. Geological Survey, visited the spring in the summer of 1890, and then found the carcases of five deer, as well as those of many smaller animals, lying either dead or insensible beside it. As far as is known the water has never been analysed, a fact which certainly says little for the scientifie ardor of M-r Superintendent Stout and hie subordinates.
HINTS FOR HOUSEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894
HINTS FOR HOUSEKEEPERS. Cream boiled makes the cottee richer, and does not chill it. Suet and lard keep better in tin than in earthenware, as the latter absorbs them. To polish zinc wash clesan, wipe dry, and rub with a woollen rag moistened with coal oil. Do not boil turnips or carrots or any other vegetables along with meat, as both are spoiled thereby. Dressers and meat andbread boards can be kept sweet and whiter by scouting with sand soap than by mere scrubbing, as the sandre moves the soiled surface and leaves a new one.

Home and Fireside, To CoLEA MAL:nrE.-Thereis apasie fo clea ing marble, it is composed of American pearlash or potash mixed with powdered whiting and water to the consistency of cream. Apply it with a wooden apron or piece of fiat stick to the part discolored, and remove after a few minutes. One cr two applications may be necessary if the stain be of long standing ; in any case, repeated short applications are preferable to a singlepro. tracted one, as the potash, being caustic mits nature, wouldin time act injuriously upon the F cr' arth minxed to a aste wti e is often used. It is allowed to dry on the marble, and is then rubbed off. Washing soda, with half its volume of pumice powder, and ditto of powdered chalk, made intno apaste with water, is an excellent means of cleans. iag, thoughthe pumice is apt, with friction, to deaden or remove the polishof the marble.
