Fertlibers and Grass.' Judging from the poor condit~ion of a conslderab.e portion of .ho grass .Jands'n differeant-parts of the country, there are still many iarmers wio seem to think that pastures have no need for manures; and there are oth ers wno cJntenO tlhemselves wrlh ap plying from time to tnle feeble dres amla Of faruiyard manure to such fields as are near the homestead, or thley ,e1ine the fields are Suficilently efrich ed oy the droppings of the animals. Such neglect is a mistake, because the pianib that constitute the nour ishlng herbage of grass laid rcquire a liberal quantity of pla?lt food in order to delretp into rich forage.

SOME CRICKET RECORDS. The distinctioa of having made the highest individual score min any first class match belongs to A.O. 'Laren, and has belonged to him since 1895, when he scored 424 runs for Lanca shire against Somerset at Taunton. During the season of 1901, C. 13B. Fry made no fewer than 13 three figure scores-an achievement never beaten, and only once equalled-name ly, by Tom Hayward in 1906. " In that same season, by the way, Hay ward amassed the record individual aggregate by scoring in all 3,518. rus?. It was in 1906 again, that G. H. Hirst'performed the unique feat or scoring over 2,000 runs, and takizi~ over 200 wicke:s. A bowling achiev menat which is likely to take a bit of beating was aocomplished by A. E. Trott in 1907 when playing m his own benefit match for Middlesex against Sussex. Not contnt with taking four wickets with consecutive balls, \ he then proceeded to perform the hat trick in t?he same innings.

How to Grow Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 17 July 1914
How to Grow Lucerne. "What are itslfattening qualities?" Mr. Nevillo echoed. "\Vell, I-don't think that it fattenos lambs as quickly as rape does, but it will give a grea ter proportion of lean meat. It is not as neating as rape. I allow the lambs on lucerne about a fortnight or three weekslonger to fatten than I do for the lambs ted on rape. "I intend to put in about six hun dred acres, but the land must be first worked up. Luberne does well if it follows a" crop of peas. Any land that will grow clover, cowgrass, or peas will grow lucerne. I would not adviso any one going in for lucerne to plant too deep..

THEfTS FROM THE iORES. LAPSES OF A PEERESS. CASES OF "BRAIN STORMS" Recent cases in England have-called attention to the prevalence of stealing from, shop counters, - which goes on among well-to-do and "respectable" people. It. is one of the most-per plexing of the lesser problems with wheicht the managemente of a shop es pecial!y of the large store with many deparunents, has to deal. What the linancial value of the articles a olen amounts to in tile course of the year no large establishment can say withiray. certain y; but each *of these has on the average roughly about one case at detected theft a day. -At -Christmas, when the emptation and the appar ent.. chances of. immunity from detec tion are greater, one shop has caught as many as 40 pilferers in a singleday; but what proportion .-hose who are caught boar to those who successfully get away with their plunder no one can approximately guess.

Th latest to join the "large majority. was Mr John Buggy, whose sudden death on Monday afternoon cast quite a gloom oler the town. As Mr Buggy was about on Saturday pursuing his business avocations many people were not aware of the fact that he was any worse than usual, therefore his unexpected death came as a great shock to his many friends.

Mr Buggy was a man who had a keen linsight into business, and was a builder and contractor of wide range and experience. He also knew how to manage men, and was therefore on the best of terms with his workmen, who did ...
