DIGGER'S REST. [FROM OR OWs CORESRPONDENT.] Friday. The largest concourse of people ever assembled on the local ground took place on Christmas Day to witness a cricket match between Digger's Rest and Rockbank, Extra interest wss centred in the match through the opposing team having secured the services of Messrs Robinson and Shebler, of Melton, two bowlers of known "repute who a short time .previously in a match Sunbary Jnniors v. Melton crowned themselves with laurels by completely paralysing the effects of the batsmen of the former team, their sticks ffling in all directions, *like the proverbial ninepins.

BOILING VEGETABLE [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 6 January 1894
BOILING VEGETABLE Remember that underdone vegetables are very indigestible; they must be well cooked to make the little starch cells burst and give out their contents, that the heat-giving properties may become useful to the body. Vegetables that are old and woody require more boiling than those that are young and tender. Old potatoes, carrots, turnips, parsnips, hari cot beans, and onions must be put into plenty of cold water to give them room to swell. Old potatoes require about twenty minutes. Carrots about two hours. Turnips about three-quarters of an hour, or more if they are old. Par snips about an hour and a half. Haricot beans must be soaked for twelve hours and boiled for three or four ho,- Onions about three-quarters . an hour,

CHARMED "BT A SNA K' One summer morning a little girl left her father's housein Texns to gather blackberries near a spring. Not returning at the ex. pected time, her mother went to look for her. The child was not atthe spring, nor did she reply when her name was called out loudly everaltimes. Passing through the bramble bushes the mother was horrified to see her child seated on a rook with a rattlesnake in her lap. The odious thing was waving its head to and fro and almost ton),*- girl's lips. ~. -- the perreetly wit the child fasci nated by the hideous creature that she never heard her. mother's shriek, although it reached her father,'ihob wasa quarter of a mile of, and brought .him instantly to the spot.

FARM AND GARDEN. THE AIR A NITROGENOUS FERTILIZER A. L. WINTON, JR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 6 January 1894
FARM AND GARDEN.! THE AID A NITROGENOUS FEBTI LIZER A. L. WINTON, Tn. Of all the fertilizing elements required by plants, nitrogen is the most expensive, cost ing over twice as nuch as soluble phosphoric acid, and three or four times as much as potash. This high cost is not, however, because of its scarcity; on the contrary it is a very common element, forming over three fourths of the air about us. Over every acre of our farms, there hangs suspended enough nitrogen in a free or uncombined condition to be worth about £2,000,000, if obtained in a proper state of chemical com bination of other elements, but the manu facture of nitrogenous fertilizers cheaply from the air has not yet been accomplished. We have been obliged to bring nitrate of soda, guano, sulphate of ammonia, tankage, blood, etc., from different parts to make good the deficiency of this most important element in our worn-out soils. Recent experiments with legumes-peas, beans, clover, lupines, etc,,-which show that thes...

HIS REVENGE, Charley Brandt, onleaving Sandhurst, had o0 made an equally charming and unprofitable n use of the few months elapsing between his r last successful examination and his. depar ture for India by falling deeply in love with tc his ?esin Maud, an exceedingly pretty girl w of aghteen. I'er paents had somewhat im- al prnoently invited the handsome young sol dier so their- country house, and he had A aecepted the invitation, in the first instance, chiefly because the shooting season was at d hand, Uncle Manners having :strictly pre- w served coverts, and because the Manor was a Iw " jolly comfortable house to stay at." t But Charley promptly found that he had I not reckoned up all the attractions offered to re him. He was suddenly and desperately 5 smitten with the girl whom he remembered P only as a shy, timid creature in the transi- w tion state of maidenhood, with a shower of rippling hair down her back. He discovered with intense astonishment that while he had h been hard...

---ANNUAlb STAFF BALL, .PLAIN, FANCY & EVENING DRESS. L XRGE ATTENDANCE & SPLENDID WEATHER. The 10th Annual Staff Ball was held '?tfiNew Year's Night, at the Sunbury ;Asylum, and great as were the expecta 4ons raised they were more than realised by the brilliance, splendour, and enjoy ment of the evening. The management had adopted as their keynote the word " Success; " and had made the concert hall gorgeous in every respect. The decorations from the hands of most of the staff of the Asylum, including banners, inscribed with the words "Wel *,.come, " " Compliments of the season, " etc., were truly artistic, and combined with the magnificent costumes, dazzled the eve with beauty and brilliancy. The music, Criers' band, for which Mr Crier was chiefly responsible, was of a kind that captivated the ear and lingered in the memory, finding frequent echoes upon the tongue, and .-the dance time was of a style to keep the audience in a pleased, almost dazed. , whirl of deligh...
CRICKET. CAULFIELD G. C. V. SUNBURY JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 6 January 1894
CR IC K E T. CAULFIELD 0. C. V. SUNBURY JUNIORS. In pleasant weather, and in the presence of a goodly number of specta tors, the above teams met on the Recreation Reserve on Monday (New Year's Day), and an interesting day's cricket was witnessed. It was hardly surprising, however, that the play should go in favour of the visitors seeing their batting was of a more finished style than the home team's. Sunbury gained first innings, and were at the wickets for two hours for a total of 102. The best cricket on the side was shown by Jim. Walsh, who went in with one wicket down for four, and was seventh out for a well played fifty-six. He was batting for three-quarters of an-hour, and only gave one chance in the slips, when his score was at forty-four. D. Asker with fifteen, and Geo. Hartley with eleven, also played fairly well, but the general batting scarcely came up to expectations. R. McCaddan, an off-break bowler, was accountable for most of the mischief. He did a good performance, t...
