Change of Seed. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Change of Seed. ----o There is a good deal of discussion amongst our farmers with respect to change of aced, and several have determined to treat the question during the forthcoming season. The question is whether the seed wheat from a colder district will prove to be any earlier and more prolific than that grown locally; also whether an earlier and more abundant crop can be expected from seed produced in a wanner district. Taking the locality of Petersburg, for instance. where would be the advantage of procuring seed wheat from Mount Gambier, or would aLv better ret suits be attained if the seed were obtained from Hawker: If, by a change of seed, only one bushel per acre additional can be secured, the advantage to the individual farmer and to the colouy at large would be somewhat considerable and therefore these experiments will be watched with much interest. The Woodlands of the United States nowcover1 50,000,000 acres-about 26 per cent. of the whole area,

Agriculture in Italy. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Agricultute in Italy. In a aketch of Agriculture in Italy, and nith specialreferenceto the crisis now prevaili?g there, Signor Galanti gives some particulars Ie to the actual state of affairs, which are of con. siderable interest in view of the present depres sion. He states that the area of land under cultivation is about 60,000,0t00 acres, of which nearly one-fifth is in wheat, with a yield efI about II bushels per acre, while alout .5,00)t,000 acres are devoted to Indian corn, the yield being about 17 bushels per acre. About 500.000 acres are devoted to rice, or rather more than is sown in oats: barley and ry* occuping very little apace, while about two million acres are occupied by leguminous plants. Pasing ver a very interesting enumeration of the various fruits which are grown in such large quantities throughout Italy, it may be added that, so far a the live stock is concerted, Signor Galanti puts the total at 5,000,000 head of cattle, 6,000,000 sheep, 1,S00,000 goats, 1,100,0...
Milk and Cheese as Brain Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Milk and Cheese as Brain Food. Is skim milk or cheese brain food ? A paper by M. Becamp, which M. Freidel has just read to the Paris Academy of Medicine, gives an affirmative answer. 1. Becamp, it seems, has for some time been devoting himself to the study of casein. He has found that it chenically differs from all other albuminoids with whice he is acquainted. One ot its yrvperties is when burnt pure to make no ashes. He experimented on burntcasein, not with the view of coming to the conclusionbe now enunciates, but to an opposite one, namely, that there is no phos phorus in casein. In a number of experiments he found that absolutely pure casein contains 753 parts out of 1.000 of organic phosphorus. He has also demonstrated the presence in casein of sulphur, and therefore that this substance is made up of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and phosphorus, sulphur, and oxygen. Milk and cheeseare accordingly brain restorers.

Judging Ayrshire Cows. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Judging Ayrshire Cows. The correspondence on the judging of Ayrshire cows still goes on in the "Kilmarnock Standard," and the later contributions are more favorable to the milk test than were the earlier ones. Hon. 0. R. Vernon writes a letter, in which he says:-- In my opinion the milk test is of the utmost importance for enhancing the value of our Ayrshire cowst and should have far more attention given to it by our agricul tural asociations. A farmer or a cow-keeper, when pulrchasing a cow for dairy purposes, requirce to get the best and richest milk. producer to make his occupationaremunerative one. It is my belief that nothing runs so truly in the blood of Ayrshire ptock as the milk producing qualities. Symmetry of form, upstanding horns, square vessels, and well. shaped teats are all very pleasing to the eye, and when combined with a long, good record of milking qualities, necessarily enhances the value of the animal; but the first-men. tioned are too easily improved upon natur...
Tricks in the Dairy Trape. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Tricks in the Dairy Trape. 0.-~-- In illustration of th method by which New Zealand producehas been placed on the British market, the following incidtnt (saysthe "Otago Daily Times"), which camne to our knowledge recently, may not be withoutinterest :-An Auckland merchant thinking that cheese was about to advance in price, purchased from a well-known Southern factory ninetons of that commodity. His anticipatious as to the rie were not realised, and he stored the unsold por tion of his lot in an out-house,leaving it in the original packages to be the prey of fluctuating temperatures and rats. One of the dairy in. spectors had subsequent occasion to examine a cargo of produce that quite recently left INew Zealand for London and to his surprise recog. nised as coming from Auckland 39 cases of cheese purporting to come from the Southern factory before mentioned. As he knew the circum stances of the case, and also knew that 13 months had transpired between the makingand the shipment, and...
A Quaint Feudal Custom. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
A Quaint Feudal Custom. In the Queen's Bench Division the other day, Mr Justice Charles delivered judgment in the case of Harrisony. Powell, which arose out of a quaint feudal custom, dating back, according to the records of the Courts Baron in the County of Kent. for between three and four hundred years. The plaintiff sued the defendant, who is lord of the manor of Shieldhurst and Holland, near Tuunbridge Well, to recover damages for trespass and wrongful seizure, on 3rd December, 1591, of two horses and a cow belonging to plaintiff. The defendant, it appeared, made the seizureo mplained of on the ground that by the enstum of the estate, he, as lord of the manor, was entitled to three "heriote," three of the best animals, payable by the plaintiff as executor upon the death of James Harrison, deceased. The question to be decided by the court was whether the lord of the manor was entitled, upon the death of a tenant, to claim payment of one "heriot'" in respect to each tone. ment, me...
THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE. An American gentleman started in his yacht the other day oen a ten months' cruise. Hesailed from New York, and the newspapers published long descriptions of his departure, illustrated by pictures of his vessel inside and out, and en. livened by much gossip about her stores and fittins and her owner's plans. A dozen people, more or less, including most of the yachtsmau'e immediate family, went with him. They sailed in what is probably the biggest and most sumptuous pleasure ship in the world. So far as material ap pliances go, the people who went off on that yacht seemed to start with a com plete outfit of delectable properties. More over they seemed to be intelligent people, in good health, and there were enough of them to afford one another congenial soelety; so the chances seemed to be that they would have a very goodtime indeed. That was a striking. and picturesque example of one of the ways in which human beings go about the business of getting satis. fa...

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Melbourne Letter. -;o: [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J THe reconstructed banks are issuing their half-yearly balance-sheets, and those of the City of Melbourne, Colonial, and Natiortal, have, no doubt, been eagerly scanned by thousands of interested in vestors. The City and the Colonial do not call for particular mention, beyond that the latter, though not indicating any great earning power, seems to be working its way slowly into a more healthy posi. tion than might have been expected from the nature of the crisis through which it has passed. The City distributes a very small dividend among its preference shareholders only; but if it is legitimately strengthening its resources, nothing need be said against the policy. The surprise, however, comes in connection with the National Bank, whose balance sheet ex hibits vigor "in every limb." Thisinsti tution distributes a handsome sum to its preference and ordinary shareholders- over £3o,ooo-and from the manner in which the business of the b...

Her Intended. The two sweet and gentle maidens were holding converse after the manner of their kind as they walked along, when they met a young man, who bowed and passed on. "' Ur," said one, with a toss of her nose into the air. " He's been to see me twice this week," remarked the other. " Well, I don't like him just the same." " He's coming to see me to-morrow night."

Illustrations. FASHIONABLE BONNETS. THE "MARIE STUART" BONNET. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
Illustration:. FASHION'ABLE BONNETS. TUE "MARIE SrwAsT" BOfloqP. The "Marie Stuart" shape in jet, velvet, cloth and straw is now so much in vogue, and as it is usually extremely becoming to most faces, we think our readers may be glad of a pretty idea for trimming the model. For very young ladies this shape without strings is best, and it is often worn very far back on the head. Narrow velvet and satin strings are a nice addition for a young married lady, as illustration shows. Some of these bonnets are composed of a shape flatly covered with velvet, and are then often edged with jet, a full bind of velvet, ostrich feather trinjing, or even narrow far, and finished with U ge bow of satin ribbon, rather at the bechf ta owu,-ana s null faontain osprey.

English Nurses. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
English Nurses. ' The German Empress was (says a Lon don paper) at her stay at Felisatowe so much impressed by the perfections of the British nursemaid bien elevee that, shortly after her return to Germany, she commis sioned an English lady friend to engage an English nurse for the Gernan Im. perial children. One of the conditions under which the nurse was engaged was that she was not to be told, until the en gagement was settled, who her charges would be. This, the Empress considered, was the only way of obtaining a thorouhly competent nurse, and not a personage who would come for the sake of the position merely, and in order to be able to trade for ever after on the glories of her office.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894
An amusing story comes from Edin burgh University. The other day Dr Andrew Seth, the well-known Professor of Logic, received an addition to his family.This fact somehow became known; and next morning the Professor entered his classroom to the sthains of Molly and I and the Baby, which was duly followed by The Alabama Coon. While the songs were being sung. the Professor stoodat his table, quite helpless; for the students numbered hundreds. After the strains had died away, he nervously said, " I can but bow my acknowledgments ;" and proceeded with his lecture.
