POPULAR PACKAGES FOR PEA.CHES 'I AND OTHER FRUITS. M _ A study of the markets in any large -i;! city shows a great variety of fruit fa packages.

Ways of Living. A HIRING FAIR IN WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

Ways of Liying. A HIRING FAIR IN WALES. gjjg r appears curious in these days of foist registry offices, labour bureaus, gig employment societies, etc., that there are still places where domestic servants stand awaitiBg hire as their ancestresses might have done a century ago. May and October are the two chief months for holding hiring fails, and on the Weleh Border men and woman stand, olad in their best, in the market places ready to answer possible employers, who for the most part are farmers or farmers' wives. WeBt country servants have held for many years a deservedly good reputation for long servioe, and I cannot help think* ing that, so far aa Border girls are con cerned at all events, early training has much to do with their charaoter for faithful, steady service. The roaming spirit engendered by rapid and constant changing of situations finds no place in Welsh Martha's ' make up.' When she enters a situation it meanB for her a year and a day's Bervice at least, not morely a ...

FERTILISER EXPERIENCE IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

FERTILISER EXPERIENCE IN 3 ENGLAND. I The county of Essex has long been ) noted for its advanced scientific agri cultural pursuits. Recently the technical ^ committee there concluded a six years' experiment dealing with pasture land and' the hay crop. T lose experiments were conducted in niue different localities, and on as many diff erent soils, and the net /. result shows that by judicious fertilisation the hay crop can bs enormously increased. J For inetaace it has been proved that nitcogenous mannros — nitrati of ssda and sulphate of am mon ia — have a greater effect on newly laid down pastures than on old. Thus, one and a half hundred weight of nitrate of Boda to an acre of land produced on new grass land an average increase ef fifty per cent, sulphate of ammonia has, with scarcely an exception, pro luied more hay than nitrate of Boda in th» first yean of the experiments, bnt latterly nitrate of soda has produced the best yield, showing that Bulphate of ammonia is the more oxha...

Naturalist HYPNOTISING FROGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

Naturalist HYPNOTISING FROGS. I JO^OIUS further experiments with frogs were reoently made by Mile. QkPm. StefanowBki, of Brussels, to show how they act when hypnotiBed. Frogs which have spent the winter in an aqnarium can easily be hypnotised when they are exhausted after a prolonged fast —namely, during spring and summer. As soon as they are turned on their backs they , fall into a hypnotic state, and in many instances are even Beized with catalepsy. Inbenbibl.1 to Pais. . While they are lypnotiaed the action of their organs is practically suspended, and they are insensible to pain. The pupils of their eyea are al ways contracted and do not begin to dilate until they awake, and, furthermore, their hearts - be it slowly and their breathine is hardly per ceptible. ' In this condition they may re main for a half hour, or even longer. According to Mile. Stefanowski this con dition of profound hypnosis is especially marked ia the case of these frogs which are kept during winter in a dry...

MIKE, THE FEATHERED MASCOT. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

MIKE, THE FEATHERED MASCOT. ' I bring in five and take out two.' This sounded like arithmetic, but it wasn't. It was just business, railroad I . business, pertaining to the very busy life L of Henry McCarthy, who, for 28 years has ; pulled the lever on engines that have pulled great trains toward Kansas City sometimes and towards Denver at others, over tbe old Kansas Pacific, or Union Pacific, as it is now known. The numbers he mentioned referred to the numbers of the trains — 5 and 2. His engine, McCarthy said, in 1474, 'and a better one of the kind,' he added, in the phraseology of 'My Uncle Toby,' 'you wouldn't find in a dozen years' McCarthy was an engineer before he came to Golorado in 1878 and he has been an engineer ever since, barring three years when he was in tho sheep buBincsB in Lincoln county — a disastrous three years ending in a total loss ef 1,000 sheep, which gave up the ghost under the asphyxiating force ? f a waterspout.

FEEDING A PYTHON [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

FEEDING A PYTHON When a twenty-six foot python loses its appetite, drastic measures have to be taken to save its life. Some time ago the New York Zoological Society secured one. of these Bnakes, but it absolutely refused to eat. While it is possible for a snake to refrain from food fox a considerable period there is a limit to its endurance. As there seemed to be no inclination on the part of this snake to save itself from starvation the authorities decided tbat extreme measures must be taken. The food, which consisted of two rabbits and four guinea pigs, was pre pared. The animate were fastened to the end of a long pole. The snake was firmly (fraBped by twelve men and brought out in the centre of the reptile house. Its mouth was opened and the food wsb pushed into it by the aid of the pole. The snake made violent efforts to break away, and it was only by the combined efforts of the men that he was held quiet enough to allow the gastronomical opera tion to be performed. He was then ...

PATSY. SET was in the early faU. The day had jlp been intensely warm, and as Bturdy, 2K barefooted Meg climbed over the hills ahe suddenly stopped, spell bound by the glory of the sunset. She stood motionless drinking in the beauty with an expression of joy and wonder. The slender flgare in its torn, faded freck was bathed in the ruddy-gold light Meg's faoe was not Drettv. but infonuit. ing; and one could read there much about the light-hearted, mischievous owner. Lower and lower sank the sun, and the smile died away from the girl's face, whilst the teaxs welled. in the largo, bright eyes. Suddenly she brushed them away. Some one was calling. She re cognized the voioe . and shouted back : 'Here I am, Jim. What do you want f ' I've been looking and looking for yen, Meg,' the little lad cried, as he came run ning toward her panting. He was a pretty boy 'of about eleven, a year or two younger than Meg, but the two were in separable. She ifas his ideal and he trusted her with boundless ...

HISTORICAL SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 3 October 1902

HISTORICAL SONGS. Many old English songs are popular with ns to-day on account of their melody ; while others, euch as Anne Boleyn's ' Oh, Death, Bsck me to Sleep,' have profound interest because of their historic associa tions. We are fortunate in the possession of two distinctly national airs, ' God Save the King ' and ' Bule, Britannia.' There has been much dispute over the authorship of the first. A fe w years ' s&o. when the Prince of Wales, as he then was, was entertained by the Merchant Tailors' Company, the Master took the opportunity of ' reminding his gneBts that, in that hall, two hundred and fity years before, ' God Save the King,' as written by Ban Jonson and composed by D/. Bull had been snng.' It has, however, long since been definitely decided that both words and music of ' God Save the King* were written. by Hen&y Carey, the composer ot ' Sally in our Alley,' about the year 1736 to 1740. 'Bule, Britanaia,' was composed by Dr. Arne in 1740, to woirds ...

The latest event of this sort was the reception by the Imperial Prin cesses of the ladies of the American lega tion and four ladies from the American mission as interpreters, in recognition of a similar courtesy which Mrs. Conger ex tended to them recently. Official chairs were used alike by those who were not entitled tc them, and the procession mad6 a brave show.
