WHAT KILLS FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
WHAT KILLS FRUIT TREES. Deep-planting is one error—to plant a tree rather shallower than it formerly stood is really the right way, whilst many plant a tree as they would a post. Roots are of two kinds—the young ami tender rootlets ; com posed entirely of cells, the feeders of the trees, always found near the surface fietting air and moisture ; and roots of over one year old, which serve only as supporters of the tree and conductors of its food. Hence the injury that ensues when the delicate rootlets aie so deeply buried in the earth. Placing 'fresh or green manure in contact with the young roots is another great error. The place to put manure is on the surface, where the elements disintegrate, dissolve, and cany it downward. Numerous forms of fungi are generated and reproduced by the application of such manures directly to the roots., and they immediately attack the tree. It is very well to enrich the soil at trans planting the tree, but the manure, if to be in contact or very near...
A STUPENDOUS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
A STUPENDOUS WORK. The stupendous task of printing the entire catalogue of broks in the British Museum Library, numbering one million three hun dred and fifty thousand printed books and fifty thousand manuscripts, has been for some time steadily progressing. The sys tem in vogue up to a recent period was to write the names of the books with their reference numbers, &c., upon slips of paper which were afterwards pasted into the cat alogue volumes in alphabetical order. From two such volumes, which sufficed to describe the collection in 1787, the number has swelled to two thousand volumes in 1878. The number of printed volumes now amounts to seventy-four, and the importance of the reform will be recognised when we state that the seventy-four new volumes replace no fewer than two hundred and seventy-six of the far moiM cumbrous manuscript vol umes. It may not be generally known that any subscriber of three pounds ten shillings annually can obtain copies of these catalogue volum...

A VEGETABLE WONDER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
A VEGETABLE WOOER. A banyan tree is a forest m itself, giving shelter or shade to whole villages or huts. Its wide-spreading branches are supported by many separate stems, or trunks, formed by descending aerial roots, which on reach ing the ground, become fixed as props to the great leafy roof above. Natives of parts of India regard the tree as sacred, and it is not surprising that the deep twi light which always prevails under its dense foliage should impress with awe the simple Buddhist dwellers in this shade. Eespect ing the size reached by this tree, it may be stated that Forbes, in his " Oriental Mem oirs," mentions a banyan-tree which was nearly 2000ffc. in circumference, measured round its principal stems, while the ground covered by its branches was considerably more extensive. The large trunks num bered 350, and the smaller ones exceeded 3000. Even the 2000ft.—or more than one third of a mile—does not represent the full circumference over which this colossal plant's chief s...
MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. A memorial signed by nearly three-fourths of t he members of the City of London Gor* jjoralion, has been addressed to her Majesty's Ministers, urgingthe repeal of the j jci,\v jtn'ohibjifcing marriage, with deceased J wife's sister. The memorialists—among whom are the Lord Mayor, the ex-Lord Mayor, the two Sheriffs, the Recorder, the City Chamberlain, and twenty of the twenty nine Deputies—say :—" The prohibition of such marriages has been repeatedly con demned by large majorities in the House of Commons ; it has become a part of our jurisprudence through a doubtful interpreta tion of Scripture; it is habitually infringed, without loss of respect, by persons of ad mitted virtue, who do not believe that they are acting at variance with religion or moral ity ; and a law which, like this, fails to secure the general assent of the community ought, in our opinion, to be abolished. We therefore urgently appeal to her Majesty's responsible advisers to ...

FATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR SOUTH CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
FATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR SOUTH CREEK. \ fatal accident occurred ne&r South Creek last Saturday night, by which a young woman named Lamerack,twenty three years . of age, Inst her life. The young woman had been to Sydney with her father who is em ployed on the duplicate line, and they re turned to South Creek by the 11.25 p.m. train. Limerack reside- near the Parkes platform, bevond South Creek, and as the train does not stop there they got out at the latter sta tion an&lt;l proceeded to walk home along the railway line. Shortly after the arrival of the paseengpr train at Penrith a goods train leaves for Sydney, and this train they met on a bridge before reaching their destina tion", It is supposed that the daughter was endeavouring to save her father's life when she was struck' by the engine, which knocked . her clean over the bridge, and she fell to a depth of 30 feet. Death must have been instantaneous, for when the body was re covered it was found that amongst o...
THE SOURCES OF MANY FAMOUS ENGLISH NOVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 23 May 1885
THE SOURCES OF MANY FAMOUS ENGLISH NOVELS. Novel-writing, in which life and what is called society are attempted to be represented, is anony mous biography to a large extent,. In ordinary con versation a person who talks a great deal about him ' self is generally set down as a bore. But let him write his own story, let him produce an anoymous autobiography, and if the execution be even tolerable lie may hold the reader by the powerful grasp of sympathy. But in this-class the most remarkable -example is not what may be regarded as the first English romance, " Robinson Crusoe." Its author, one Daniel Defoe, a political hack writer, who had previously tried his hand at prose fiction without much success, came across a very prosaic narrative &nbsp; of the adventures of one Alexander Selkirk, a Scotch sailor, who lived for four years , and four months on the desert island of Juan Fernandez in the Pacific-Ocean. Throwing himself, as it were, into the very mind of the enforced soli...

FUN AND FANCY. When is a kiss like rumour ? When it goes from mouth to mouth. The fashionable tailor may not be much of a lady-killer, but lie knows how to cut a young man out. Beauty, they say, is only skin deep any >vay ; but many a girl would be thankful if only her beauty were as deep as that.

VICTORIA AND NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 27 May 1885
VICTORIA AND SEW SOUTH WALES. ' Once a year these young countries en deavour to take their own statistical meas urement for mutual comparison, and self congratulation. It has been settled which is first, but it remains to be seen who will be the greatest. During the gold fever Victoria went away with a bound, leaving New South Wales far behind. The hare said to the tortoise, " Shall I say you are coming ?' The tortoise in this race is gain ing on tliehare. In 1880 the numbers were, Victoria, 849,000; New South ' Wales, 751,000; difference in favour of Victoria, 08,000. At the end of 1884 they were, . ia 901,000; New South Wales, .'.C30; difference in favour of 'Victoria'. C30. During the time named Victo ' •s yearly added , 28,000; New Sou Wales has added at the rate of 42,000. these figures be adjusted, it will be seen that they show that the two colonies jig these rates will be abreast in about two and a half years' time.
