A WORD TO GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
A WORD- TO GIRLS. Many careless young people who have been spoiled by over-indulgent parents, seem to forget that when we are in com pany the laws of good society demand that our bodies should be placed under the strict discipline ot our wills, We may not yawn, or sneeze, or suffer any palpable in convenience from a '' fidgety" or aching member; we may complain neither of the heat nor of the col ; hunger and thirst must be kept in abeyance; in no way should our sensations or needs be obtruded upon the attention of others. To be per petually requiring small services is a sure mdication of lack of breeding. "I am very thirsty-may I trouble you for a glass of water P" " It is oppressively warm kindly open a window." " I am sensitive to draughts-will you pray close that door P'" Who has not heard these and similar requests from many a spoiled girl whose passing physical sensations are her chief care in life, and who. studies no one's comfort but her own P. There are few. of the petty di...
SPEAKING OF COMETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
SPEAKING OF COMETS. There were a score of men seated around him in the waiting-room, when an old man, who had been holding a newspaper within an inch of his nose for the last half hour suddenly let it fall and exclaimed " Wall, by gum, but it's no wonder I felt narvonus and all broke up !" "Are you speaking to me, sir 1" asked the man on his right. " I'm speakin' to the hull crowd o' you," said the old man as he rose up and looked around. " Do any of you know how nigh that blamed comet cum to hittin' this aixth before she turned and scooted back into space P" " I never trouble myself about comets," replied the man who had spoken before. " Oh, you don't I Some folks are jest that way. Do you know, sir-do you know how nigh that comet cum to knockin' this old globe and you with it into a continental cooked hat P" "I don't know, and I don't care, and there's no particular call for you to stand up there and make a show of yourself !" "You don't care, eh!" shouted the old man. " Then, sir...
DIGGER'S REST. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
'DIGGER'S REST. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Friday. It is my painful duty to record the death of Mr Thomas Condon, a very old and much reslpected resident of l)ig;r's Rest, which took place at his residence on Saturday last. The decease I was seized with a paralytic stroke on the previous Sunday, but on Friday he showed signs of improving, THe suhse took a turn for the worse, and expired as stated. He was 74 years of age. and had resided in Digger's Rest for over 40 years. His remains were inferred in the Sunbury Cemetery on Monday last. the funeral being a very large one. The burial service was read by the Rev. Fi. Gallivan, of Gisborne. The much-dreaded "Bot" fly is amongst us, nearly every horse in the district being alTected with it, but no fatal results have ensued up to the present. Snakes are exceedingly numerous this summer, several being killed recently. Nearly all were of the tiger species. Mrs James Millett, of the Monmouth shire lHotel, despatcheld one in his cellar a ...

THE WOMAN WHO GIVES ADVICE [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
THE WOMAN WHO GIVES ADVICE She is a very wearisome woman, the one who gives you advice. She does not wait till you ask for it or she thinks you need it. She has it in store and if you happen along she pours it out on you. It usually happens, too, that she pours it most freely when you can't use it, don't want it, wouldn't have it and wish she would keep still. She has sharp eyes as a rule. They are not bright and pretty, but restless little beads that look as if they were threaded with a pin point which pricks you at every glance. If she looks, it is to criticise; if she lis tens, it is to suggest; if she speaks, it is to relate her experience and explain her way. You may meekly suggest that yc.u also would like to come by your knowledge through experience, but she seems to be doubtful if so unimportant an individual will ever have any of the happenings that: teach. She means well, oh, bless her, yes ; but she is very "wearing" to mortals that come in her way and have mislaid their ...

CRICKET. DIGGER'S REST V. SUNBURY SENIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
CR ICKE T. DIGGER'S REST V. SUNBURY SEnIORS. Rather a surprise met the visit of the Seniors to Digger's IR st last Saturday as, contrary to all expectations, they suffered a defeat by 26 runs. The visitors put a very poor representative team in the field, while the home team was a combined eleven of Digger's Rest and Toolern. which accounts for the un expected result of the contest. Th,. Digger's Rest team ha'ted fir-t and gave the Sunbury b.vs a total of 104 to make, which, as already stat.ed, they failed to, the last wicket fslli?,g for 78. W. A.

NEW DISCOVERIES IN AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
NIEW DISCOVERIES IN AFBICA. That vast central region of Africa which was marked on the old maps " nknown," to-day is known as the most fertile, fruitful and well-watered and populous of all Africa, a region that would not suffer in comparison with the best part of aoy other continent on any of these points. In this very region it is found that for long ages there has been, as there is now, a wondrous, teeming dwelling place for the largest, most vigorous and pro rnising of all the African races, the great Bantee family, which coaprises at least two hundred tribes, who speak one hundred and sixty-eight cognate languages, and fifty-five dialects, and no doubt number sixty million souls. Africa, taken as a whole, instead of being a dry, barren, waterless waste, is now known as a land of great, uplifted, fertile, populous plateaus, of magnificent inland lakes, of majestic rivers that brim their banks, and for thousands and thousands of milesfurnish grand highways for boats, steamers and...
HOW TO MAKE A RAIN GUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
HOW TO MAKE A BAIN GUAGE. Take an ordinary can of tomatoes or peaches, and you will notice one end is smooth, while the other end is corrugated. Be sure the can has no dents, as they will give false results. Open .the corrugated end of the can, extract the contents, turn the can upside down on a hot stove, so as to unsolder tie rest of that end. Carefully clean out any .solder that might be on the inside of the can. Clean the can out and turn it upside down, You now have an excellent guage, he- next question will be -its proper ex polure. it 'houldi he clear of all modifying in fiuences such as trees and buildings, and high enough to prevent chickens, etc., inter fering. Select a fence post with a clear " sweep of the sky," nail a lath to the post, allowing it to project about four inches above the post, place the guage on the post and tie to the lath. The lath should not reach higher than the guage, as then it would interfere with the falling rain. If the top of the post is not alr...

It was resolved to prosecute all per sons found wasting water between the hours of six a.m. and six p.m.

FARM AND GARDEN. THINNING PEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
FARM AND GARDEN. TH[NNING PEACHES. Usually the fruit finally is left till the stoning process is over, the ouject being to aUlow a greater quantity to ret?ain on tne trees than is required in c-ise the trees should cast somi of the truit. 'his is a mistake, we tnini, as frequently the cvii is brought on that would otherwise be avoided if so many truits were not allowed to stay on. We believe that the greateat strain is on the trees during the stoning period, and for that reason alone it appeals a misstake to, in many cases, overtax the trees. Our practice is to thin as soon as the fruit is set; in about a fortnight the trees are gone over again, tanrig off any fruit left previously too close together, and are given their inatl tninning.

APPLYING FERTILIZERS IN THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 10 February 1894
APPLYING FEEiTi tiZEKIS IN THE Fertilizers on vegetables should not be scattered in the rows only. it is will to use a little in the rows-as with peas--:nd when the seed is covered scatter the trrti uzer well over the surface. It the ingredi ents are soluble (as they should be with the best grades of fertilizer-), the rains will carry the substances down to the roots of plants soon enough. By scattering the fertlizer over the row, to a width or about 18 ineues, the roots w?ill be better enabled to appropriate the plant teod.
