On Monday last a fire started on Mr. Hilliear's property though the grass, to. all appearances, was quite green it burned rapidly with the assistance of a good breeze. Very little heed was paid to it at first, as it was thought it would go out itself, but on Tuesday it again. broke out and took a good deal of watch ing. About 5o acres of grass were burnt. People will do well to be careful from this forth in using fire and remember that it is a good and useful servant but a very warm master. The district at p...

Seymour News. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
Seyltour News. DURING the past few weeks influenza has been very prevalent in Seymour. Fortunately the epidemic is of a mild character, so that beyond a temporary inconvenience victims have not suffered very much. The butter factory meeting, held at Seymour on Friday evening, was the most successful we. have yet witnessed here. The audience embraced repre sentatives from lKobyboyn, W\hitehead's Creek and Puckapunyal, and all were unanimous in establishing such an in dustry in the town.

Potatoes in Young Orchards. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
'otfctoecs it Ylouugf O(rclcds. Thero is no particular objection in crop piog a young orchard with potatoes. Newly =et trees are entitled to the beat cultivation, and they are more likely to :et it with a hoed .:d cultivated crop. In this way, too, weeds tray be eotirpatEd, so that when the trees get .reo bearing, and it may be necessary to eced e?ld mIlanre on the surfaceo t in. tioe fruitfulness, the orchard may be athmot :iade into a lawn. A well-tilled potato crop v?ll not injure the trees, provided it be re unembered in cultivating that a hilt of pota toae is not to be eaved at the expense of the tre.s,
Early Sowing of Spring Grain. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
L'rslyj NolerI,!ls o'q lSpise Graise. Nearly all kinds of spring grain are best . wn as early as the ceed can be got in the umound and fairly covered. The slow early ;rowth which 3early sowing gives favors ,tooking or spreading from the root, and at the other end of the season the early sown grain is forming before the extreme heat of midsummer, which often parches and shrivels it. Our climate is not best for opting grains at the best, on account of hot, dry summers. Spring wheat must be early sown to produce a crop, and for this reason farmers in the localities where spring wheat is largely grown do a great deal of Fall ploughing. Totis does not need spring ploughing, but the grain is oultivated in as soon as frost is well out of the ground.

The cutting is hne c!ose to the ground, and the leaves are :n allowed to wilt. Then they are taken to e dry house. The leaves should not be ruised or broken in handliug, and they must rtrcrc be he bdled with care. Sometimes :e: tem is split from th:i top down to within x:eea inches of the grouend before cutting.

Aids to ikstiyt!l. A lady who is noted for her fles:lcs as of complexion, attribultes it to the epratice of usinga wash made of slice I caamll ers soaked in milk, applied every niigi:t t the hands and face and allhwel to Idry on. It is inva'uable for removing tan and frec!:les. A new style of hair dressing seeos lil:ely to gain many votaries. The hair is bruicel up very high and fastened with an invisible comb, not in the middle of the head as formerly, but almost over the forheal, an I then arranged with ornamental p;ns in bies, loops and curls. This construction forms a sort of diadem-shaped baekgroedl to the frizzled front hair. The t;i?ei:.a knot of hair, slightly protruding frotl the centre of the back of the heal, is r severe style that is becoming only to women who ptsse s very regular features.

ailflifkini Ftrmls Vfliteable. To increao the value of his land is for the great majority of farmers the readiest and monst obvious means of making money. This is. comoanly atbempted by ecuring the co c!, ration of others. In a new country each additional settler adds to the worth of .ll the land in his neighborhood, provided he be honest and able ai?d willing to work. If a railroad oan be indiuced to catablish a station on or near the farm, its value appre:lates still more. Mlany a man has been made wealthy by the increased value of his original purch:se of a farm from the growinO: up cf a illatge oar ,ey near it.

Fancy Prices for Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
Fancy Prices for Stock. oany farmers neglect their own interests through prejudice. They will not pay what they call " fancy prices" for better animalse than their own. But what if this so-called !ancy price be based on real value, as it often o ? A cow that with slightly increased cost :or feed will make twice as much butter or give twice as much milk as one of the average "erd. is worth a good deal more then twice as nuch. Deduct the extra cost of keeping if tou will, then take the extra product and re. lard it as so much interest or dividend on the low's value during the years of its probable lilfe and uefulness. The fancy prie:d cow would either loom fully up to the prices now charged for her, or the Ecrub would decline so as to be hardly worth taking even as a gift. This is a kind ot reckoning that the desltr in (overnment securities does when estimating their value. As well say that a four per cent. was estimated at a fancy price because it sells tigher than a three per cent. ...

"Sweetheart" was the Name. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
*Steetheart" was the Na? me. 'Twas a brand new boat; there were few afloat More graceful and stauneh than she; And captain and crew, and maids not a few, Were wild on her deck to be. Her masts were set and her sails were wet, She was ready to leave the shore, Yet from stem to stern, as all might discern, No sign of a a name she bore. "Won't you name her for me 1" asked Nora Lee Of the captain so youngo and gray, With a melting glance that made his heart dance; And how could lie answer nay? " Let my name fly from the peak sc high, And 'twill bring ym. ,,,,I luck, I k.,w," In turn cried Dolly, awl Al:alce, and Molly, 3Miriam, Gnrce and Fio.

ARTIFICIAL RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
ARIITIFICIAL RAIN. G(;to:t E. CrI'HTl, meteorologist to the recent Governrmeot Rain-making Expedition, discusses in the ~ow York En;in,tri,! .lafimt:ie the recent experiments to produce rain by means of ai-rial explosions: " Examined in detail, with all the attendant circum-tances, it is evident that the experi mnents have utterly failed to demonstrate that explosions call develop a torlm, or carl produce a measurable rain, and they have been not only unsoccesr-ful in result, hut nlmeagre and trivial in themselves. After the conllusion of theo experimellnts, two mIent hers of the party continued olelrations at El 'Paso. and at a point near Sal Diego, Texa-. The explosions a:e said to have been on a Inure extendedl scale. But a care tll rtudy of the report of these operations and the attendant weatlher fails, however, to assure tIe that thle results were any mnore conclusive. But while, for all practical resuilts, the explosions at M.id land were a failure, they afforded one fact of ...

AM conslantly tecciving letters from J young people about to take the respoln iAbilities of matritony upoln them who, unfortunately, have not a single idea of t economical houseekeepling, or how to set about preparing their futurehomes. Though each are answered individually according to their respective needs, doubtless there are many who never write, but who yet would be equally glad of a little advice. First, with regard to bouse-furnishing. In this respect the coat munt be cut according to the cloth, although I should hope none of my readers would enter rashly into the marriage state without being able to provide necessaries, when by waiting a little they coubl save sulticient to make a comfortable start in life. And here let me say a few words of protest against the growing pro pIensity there is imnoug ai certain cl.,hs to let the poor lprospective husbaed provid eevry thing for the home.
