AGRICULTURAL Do Cows Hold Their Milk? [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
AGRICULTURAIL Do Cows Hold Their Milk? BY PROF. HENRY STEWAIRT. In the discussion of this question, it trIl be safe to refer to the principle, as a noted mathe matical teacher once said to his pupils whenat they got hold of a knotty problem-for there is a principle involved in it, as much as in any other problem, as I have discovered during several years of study of the cow's udder. The principle is, that the production of milk is due to a nervous action by which the glan dular substance of the udder is broken down into milk whenever the cow is influenced by sufficient excitement. It depends upon the structure and function of the udder, lust as much as the secretions of other glands do, which we know are wholly subjecttothe action of a oset of nerves controlling this distinct function. The udder is not a mere veseel for holding milk, that is supposed tolbe secreted continually. and gathers in the udder, as one may suppose a constanut drippintg of any fluid would flt any other recept...
Wealth of the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
'Wealth of ithe United States. An interesting American census report re. cently issued shows that, if the wealth of the United States could be realised and equally divided, there would be a sumn of L-00 for each inhabitant, while the wealth of the United Kingdom would yieldabout L.330 per inhabitant. The actual valuation of all real and personal property in the United States is 05,037,000,000o dole, or LIS,000,000,000 uterling. The total has multiplied ninefold in forty years. Consequently toe enormous addi tions to population resulting from immigra tion have had no injurious effect unon the wealth of the country. Indeed, the increase in the wealth is at a faster ratethanthe addi. tion to the population. Thus, in 1850, the wealth was equal to only £60 perinhabi. taunt, and it has since been steadily growing, forat the end of the suceeding de cades thelportion ofeachinhabitant has been severally L133, L13, L174 and L208. Of the total wealth of the United States 39,544,000,000 dole., ...
THE HORTICULTURIST. The Orchard and Fruit Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
THE HORTICULTURIST. The Orchard and Pruit Garden. Everything should now be ready for planting out fruit trees and bushes. as the month of July is the most suitable of all for the work. Many of the amateur class of fruit-growers imagine that a young tree is better sct out earlier in the year, or, at least, immediately it has shed most of its leaves, but this is not the case, as the young tree should be allowed to thoroughly tipen its wood and mature its Lark before it is removed from the nursery where it has been raised. Again, when the trees are set out too early in the winter the soil where they stand is saturated by the heavy winter rains, and the roots are not at iall benefited by such a condi tion. It is therefore, always safer to wait until after midwinter or the end of June, even in the early locaii::es before planting begins, for as the s-aeon of spring draws near, the soil about their roots will remain in a better and more favorable condition for growth. At 2fft. apr at will...
THE HORSE Telegony. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
THE HORSE - relegony. The interesting question whether a sire influ ences the progeny obtained from the same female by ssequent sires, now termed tote ýýonr has (writes the "N-orth Britisrh A_^ical altost") recently been noticed in these columns, and the number of correspondents who have obligingly submitted records of illustrative cases Sin horses, cattle and other animals, testifies to the interest which stock-breeders take in the matter. Our knowledge of telegony is still, however, very imperfect, and definita informa tionis muchrequired. Professor J. C. Ewart, Begius Professor of iaturil History, UIniver sity of -Edinbrgbh, contributes o the April number of. the " Veterinarian" an important article on the subject He republishes Lord Morton's letter, written in 1823, to the President of the Itoyal Society, describing his crossing a young chestnut seven-eights Arabian mare with a quagga. - The hybrid produce, a female, is stated to have exhibited, 'tboth in her form and in hercolo...
Poultry Yard Scratchings. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
Porultry Yard Scratchings. Poultry enrich the productiveness of the soil. Those who send eggs to market should grade them according to size and color. The practical poultry-keeper with brains is theman to build up the industry. If the French can make poltrya valuable industry, why can't Victorians do likewisev The application of true bsines principles to poultry keeping is strongly advised. Poultry.raising and the methods to adopt hoasuld be taught in the higher classes of our - State schools.

Some Other Day. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
Some Other Day. There are wonderful things we are going to do, Some ether day; And harbors we hope to drift into Some ether day. With folded hands and ora that trail, We watch and wait for a favoring gale To fill the folds of an idle sail Some other day. We know we must toil if ever wewin Some other day. But we say to ourselves there's time to begin Some other day; And so, deferring, we loiter on, Until at last we find withdrawn Toe strength of the hope we leaned upon Some other day. And when we are old and our race is runi Some other day,' We fret for the things that might have been done Some other day. We trace the path that leads us where The beckoning hand of grim despair Leads us yoner, out of the here, Some other day: -ALFRED ELuoS .
BRITISH PRIME MINISTERS [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
BRITISH PRIME MINISTERS FROMI MELBOURNE TO SALIS. BURY. The resignation of Lord Rosebery which has thrown upon his political opponents the task of formulating a policy and submitting it to the country, suggests reflections as to how and under what circumstnucas previous Prime Ministers hlave surrendered the seals of office. The fall.f a Ministry, even if the Ministry be weak in the Houses of Parliament and discredited in the country, has nearly always attaching to it some elements that are dramatic. An English Prime Minister holds in the hollow of his hand the destinies of an immense Empire. and has centred in him an enormous power. There is a peculiarly dignified sadness in the sudden wrestng of all this potency from his grasp, by wasning power without the Government, or dissen tions within. Themilestones in English history for the last century and a half, have been, not the deaths and accessions of monarchs, but the rise and fall of Governments. The stories of the resignations of ...
An Elopement Spoilt. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
An Elopement Spoilt. Once upon a time, a young lady, who desirea to get up with the lark in order to go on an eloping tour, adopted the aschool boy's pian, and the lover was to be on hand at daybreak to give the signal. The string used for the pedal com municaticnwas a stout cord, anti one endwas dropped out of the third story window in the back yard, and the other end, of conrse, was attached to the damsel's nreat toe. The legend runs that a hoslthy goat, of the William persuasneion, arose early next morning, and wandered into the yard. After eating up all tta old sardine tine, barrel staves 'and broken crockery, lie found the string, and took that in as dessert. As soon as the cord was draw taut, the goat stood up on his hind legs and gave an impuleive jerk. The girl awoke. The goat gave another adden pull, and the mafden jumped out of bed with a smotbered cry of pain. Then she steooped down to detach the cord just ne the ridiculouse creatnre gave another violent jerk, and she nea...
A Remarkable Seene. CHURCH DISCIPLINE IN CORNWALL [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
A Remarkable Scene. CHURCH 'DISCIPLNEL IN CORNWALL Robert Burns once had ian experifence of Kirk diicipline. Mr Crockett, in his lately published delightful little work. "A Lilac Sunbonnet," gives us a graphic picture of procedure in such a case. Buts recent Cornish incident will hold its owe as a piece of latter.da mediteralism. Some lads had been chared with assault' ing a servant girl. The facts being reported to the rector, the Rev. E. V. Collins,. it was announced that two of the offenders would publicly "confess their crime i the pariah church on Snnd.ay evenoing that rise rector would grant absolution, and that by the way of penance the lads were to distribute £2 aorth of bread at the church glates after the service." What really occurred on the Sunday is thus described : At the time named the church and church. yard were crowded with people, and in the church the two lade were conspicuouely seated in front ofthe pulpit. They weresm verely admonished by the rector, who told t...
FOUR CHILDREN AT A BIRTH CASES OF QUADRUPLET BIRTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
FOUR CHILDREN AT A BIRTH CASES OP QUADIRUPLET BIRTng Oliver Goldsmith mentions tbecae man who, when loyal subjects were teOf during costly ipresenlts to tihe iin, of his country, took his large family of children into the presence of the monarch, and offered them as the most valuable gift he could make. N doubt the gentleman was acting with soand sense; for, despite Malthus aril11 school, the truest wealth of a atiuon o sists in its population, and every child born should be regarded as an ncquisitf to the commnonwealth. Looked rit in this sense, the wife of a miner who recently. near Cresoig presented her husband with four babies at once, is veritably a benefactor. The father may entertain very comprcehenjble doubts about the inatter. Very fcw cases of this kind have or curred irn Australia.

Professor Blackie. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
Professor Blackie. Dr Donald Macleod, in "Good Words " for May, tells a story about Professor Blookie, which puts an entirely different construotion upon one of tho late Professor's so-called "fads"' to that generally accepted. Professor Blackie frequently staaed at Dr Macleod's house in Glasgow:-" One night (says the doctor) nwe were sitting up to gether, Blaokie said in his brusque way, ' Whatever other faults I have, I am free from vanity.' An incredulonus smile on my face roused him. ' You don't believe that; give me an instance.' Being thus challenged, I said, ' Why do you walk about flourishing a plaid continually?' I'll give you the history of that, sir. When I was a coor man, and when my wife and I had our diffioulties, she one day drew my attention to the threadbare character of my nurtout, and asked me to ardor a new one. I told her I could not afford It jaot then, when she went, like a noble woman, and put her own plaid-shawl on my shoulders, and I have worn a plaid ever ...
A Lively Legacy. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
A Lively Legacy. The officers of the Law Courts in Szegedin, Hengary,hbadan exceedingly delicate task to perform the other day. The daughter of the proprietrix of a menagerie in that town lately fell in love with a lion tamer, and married him without her widowed mother's consent. She was then obligod to obtain a legal order for the delivery of that portion of the paternal goods that fell to her. This consisted for the most part. of lions, tigers, pantheras, and other imperfectly domesticated animals. When the officials visited the menagerie with the view of enforcing the Court's deoision, the irate mother began to throw open the cage deoors, at the same time in vising the men of law to help them selves. These deemed it more disorsete to hbeat a precipitate retreat. Ultimately, the proprierrix was placed under arrest, the dangerous patrimony was divided, and the daughter is now happy in the thopght that her lion tamer has at last the wherewithal to exhibit his skill.

The Vineyard. The main fesltures of vine culture and wine making ure the same in Victoria as in Europe, but itis unfortunalte that those porticns of the old world which in their climate resemble this country, have fulrished nothing to the stock of hterature.

The Story of Two Tigresses. FOUNDED ON FACT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
The Story of Two Tigresses. FOUNDED ON FACT. "I have such a headache to-day." said a young soldier named Percy Churchill, to his companion, James Montgomery. " It is the heat, I suppose," returned the other, lazily; "but, Percy, if it continues we must give up our plan of tiger hunting for to morrow." "I hope we shall not have to do that," Percy sadly remarked, finishing off the gun he was cleaning, and they went inside to get the English newspaper. They were goming a long-planned expedition to-morrow, hoping to kill a certain tigress that carried off cattle and even children, thus making itself both a nnisance and a terror to the neighborhood. Percy Churchill was a young lieutenant in a regiment stationed in India, where our story opens. To-morrow came and with it the scorching sun. The young soldiers started out and after a while a large tigress was observed sneaking along through the tall, rank grass her beautiful satin coat shining in the sman, her large white teeth gleaming, an...

A New Club. "When I was in Chicago last month,' said the drommer to the hotel clerk, "I mode several visits with a friend of mine there to the rooms of the Chicago Culture Club."
