THE remarks made by the President of the Yongala Institute on the evening of the recent public gathering in con nection with that institution-that the question of City versus Country was a deplorable fact, and unless country people thought hard for them selves and acted strongly and col lectively for they would in the near ? future be bled to poverty to maintain a large and wealthy metro polis '.-possess a much greater signi ficance thau may appear upon the surface of the observation.

SERIAL STORY. MARGRET, THE STORY OF A CRIME. XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

SERIAL STORY. MARGRET, THE STORY OF A CRIME. Specially translated for this paper from the Gartenlaube by ALFRED H. &STEPHEN. XIII. As soon as Mararet Stephan had entered the forest, the mas. who she thought -was already far away rose quietly from, the ditch he had hidden in, and gazed eagerly around. As he neither heard anything nor noticedjany on looker, he sought for some spot from -whence, without being seen, he conid keep watch on the entrance to the forest road. . ... . He then began, to think. The long miser-' able past flashed like lightning through ids memory. Twenty years before his misery had com menced. Just twenty years since he had, as men said, taken leave for ever of all that was good and beautiful in life. He thought of his innocent childhood, and then remembered how he bad thought of those earliest days even when being escorted in his heavy irons to what he deemed his last resting-place! How he had fancied he could trace his father's reproachful eyes in each...

XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

XIV. For many weeks Margret lay between life and death- But then one day the happy news was spread about the town: ' Margret is saved !' Slowly, but surely, the health and strength of youth returned. Kern had, as principal witness of King's latest crime, as soon as he arrived in the town, telegraphed for a substitute to under take his magisterial duties. The official arrived, but his business did not take him long. King was seldom well enough to be examined-but whenever be was able acknowledged with devilish glee his intention to murder Margret. He wildly cursed the ' old fox of a Judge ' who had prevented Ms carrying out bis fell design and completing his oft-sworn vengeance on the mother ! He was always asking when the bells would toll for the landlady's daughter, and then after weeks of feverish delirium-which showed his approaching end-he was answered by the magistrate: 1 Margaret is saved. She will soon be quite well!' King yelled a furious curse, his eyes turned back in his he...

Wheat Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Wheat Growing-. A well-known wheat dealer, in an article recently contributed to the Overland Monthly, ! figures out the profits on 4000 acres of wheat land, which he promises a Missouri farmer would buy in California at §25 an acre, paying the round sum of §100,000. Adhering to the plan of summer fallowing' one-half the land, there would be 2000 acres to crop each year. He figures cut the product of a fair yield at 1080 tons, which with the interest on the origiral investment, the cost of seed, cultivation and harvesting, would bring the expenditure up to §17,160 for the crop. He estimates that if the farmer realised the low average of §1 40 per cental, Le would get for the product §30,240; his net profit for the year would ba $13,080, or over 13 per cent on the capital invested. In Ibis way of put ting the case nothing is allowed for contin gencies, such, for instance, as the failure of a crop in some yeajs. This occasionally happens even in the most favorable districts for wheat ...

VARIETIES. THE PEACEMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

VARIETIES. THE PEACEMAKER. The mountaineer of Tennessee is a curious combination. He is ignorant, but courteous; unlearned, but sharp ; poverty-poc>r, - but - open-handed; suspicious and cunning, yet j scorning any unfair advantage. He is shift-: less, but virtuous; most always a sinner, as j the ward goes, yet holding to some of the J commandments with ? a grip more tenacious i tWn a Christian's.

Irrigated Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Irrigated Wheat. The S. F. Chroniclc has always strenuously advocated the irrigation or flooding of soil to be devoted to a ?wheat crop whenever prac ticable. While this uiay be troublesome, still the return is so sure and ample that the farmer is well repaid for hia work. A sam ple instance of the benefit to be derived fr<<m irrigation in wheat-growing is seen from the Traver (Tulare county) Advocate : ;' O. S. Brewer finished thrashing his grain last Saturday. He lias realised 512 sacks from 35 acres, 15 acres being irrigated. Mr. Brewer probably has the heaviest crop of anyone in this section this year. His land is located a few miles east of Trsver, and sur rounded by ditches from the 76 canaL As we } ';ve said before, 15 acres of the land were irrigated from the s-utface, while the remainder received moisture by seepage, the wafe r rising to within a few feet of the sur face oil over the land.

Poor Little Fly. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Poor Little Fly. It has been well observed that the true greatness of great men is never better exemplified than in their conduct of the more trivial affairs of everyday existence. A striking instance of the truth of this remark is to be found in the character of that im mortal tactician Uncle Toby, whose large hearted benevolence was extended even to the fly which tormented him all dinner-time by buzzing round his nose. 4 G-o, go, poor devil,' quoth he, * get thee gone; why should I hart thee? This world is Barely wide enough to hold both thee and me.' It is much to be regretted that the domestic fly | does not manifest a more general appreciu tion of the profound philosophy embodied in this apostrophe. The wide, wide world would seem to possess but few atraclions for I this assiduous tormentor of humanity. With a magnificent contempt of the maxim that an Englishman's house is his castle, the inde fatigable fly invades the most sacred precincts of the home, with each returning summ...

An Extensive Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

An Extensive Industry. Poultry-keeping is regarded by the masses as an insignificant business, adapted to and conducted by the women and children of the household. This view will have to be modi fied. There are at present in different parts of the country men and women who are play ing particular attention to the production of poultry and eggs. In 1879 there were in the United States of the common barnyard fowl, 102,272,135; of other varieties, 22,235,13); eggs produced here in 1879, 456,910,916 dozen; receipts of eggs from foreign countries in 1884, 16,287,204 dozen, $2,677,360 ; in 1SSG, 16, 092, 587 dozen, $2,173,454.

A Million-Dollar Cloak. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

A MiUion-HoIlar Cloak. Spread out fan-shaped in a case in the National Museum is a royal feather cloak from the Sandwich islands- The cloak is conputed to have cost in labour $1,000,000. The native name for it is mams. In the days when a Hawaiian beau or belle wanted little clothing, but wanted that gorgeously coloured, this cloak or mantle would hare been considered of more value esthetically and intrinsically than a shipload of Worth costumes, and its happy posfcessor might truly be 6aid to be in high feather. Since the natives have adopted wide trousers, lawn-tennis shirts, and four-in-hand ties, its value lies chiefly in the traditions that sur round it. The mantle, -which is semi-cir cular, is four feet long, or deep, eleven and one-half feet wide at the bottom and twenty three inches wide at toe top where it goes around the neck. The entire outer surface is made out of feathers of fine texture, giving the whole the appearance of plush. The prevailing colors are red and yellow ...

Bermuda Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Bermuda Grass. "We would like to hear from the farmers and others of this country who have noted the growth of Bermuda grass here. Our attention was called to this matter the other day by an inspection of the grass growing in C. W. Frost's door yard. It is just as thick as grass can grow and perfectly green. We do not think we ever saw a thicker mat of grass. Much to our astonishment, we learned from Mr. Frost that the growth has not been stimulated by irrigation. He thinks that the hills in the country can be given a perpetual green by propagating this grass, and he says it makes superior pasture. Have any of our readers given this grass a trial on a large scale ? If so, we should like to hear from them. If it is as good as it seems to us to be there should be a field of it on every farm in Ihe country.

Keeping Apples. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 September 1888

Keeping Apples. Apples Keep best in a umlorm te mperature just above freezing. A higher temperature, if uniform, is not the worst condition-but a temperature that fluctuates between hot and cold. If apples are kept in a- cellar, they should not be in an apartment with vegetables, but in a seperate room, walled off with windows so that cold air can be let in when the temperature is too high. Other precau tions are the wrapping of fruit in tissue paper and packing them in some porous matenal. Mr. Thomas, in the Country Gentleman. suggests these experiments : 41. Count and select fifty good, sound apples, wrap each in paper, and replace them on the shelf. Count out fifty more, the same in condition aud place them aside exposed. Next spring count the number of decayed ones in each lot and see how each has fared. 2. Count out aud place fifty equal specimens each, in boxes of sutiable size, packed in fine shavings, tme chopped oat straw, coarse and fine chaff, bran, sifted coal ashes and ...
