Kitchen Garden. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 12 April 1884
Kitchen Garden. .Make successional sowing of cabbage and cauliflower for winter and early spring use. Celery and leeks give a good watering with liquid manure, and earth up those that are sufficiently far advanced. Good celery should always have well-blanched stalks, about a foot long, and the way to procure these is by drawing the soil from each side of the clay trench, and putting it about the stems of the plant. It is better to do this earthing-up on two different occasions, doing about six inches each time. The length of the blanched portion of a leek is also5 brought about by the same means. Harvest all crops as they ripen, especially onions and the late-planted potatoes. I'umpkins and piemclons as they ripen gather and store in a dry place ; the haulm clear away, and have tho ground manured, trenched, or dug for the reception of another crop, or sow down in green feed. Allow no ground to stand vacant during the winter : it is better in crop. Flower Garden. Continue making alte...

A Group of Gaol Birds. I was surprised, during tho cightcon months 1 was in gaol, at tho number of respoclablo men — such as solicitors, an ox-ollicor of Guards, a bank manager, a man of title, stockbrokers, cashiers, ex-officer of the army and navy, clerks, clergymen, &amp;o.—in Coldbath Fiolds. Some of these had quite lost (supposing thoy evor had any) their pristine semblancoof respectability; othors, again, rotaincd tho appearance of persons of education, and spoko and doportcd themselves as such. A lamontablo instance of tho fatal cll'ect of associating with tho scum, and tho case with which a young man of good position can acquiro tho stylo and appearance of a vagrant, was oxomplilicd in youngß .

FEMALE POISONERS. All Arsonioal Solution of Fly Papors.— Unexampled Cruelty. [KKOiM OUR LONDON COKKKSI'ONDKNTj Few murdors inoro terrible or forocious can well bo imagined than tho crime—or rather long serios of crimes—for which twowomon, Catherine Flannaganand Margaret Higgins, were tho other afternoon most justly sontonced to death at Liverpool Assizes. I wrote you something about Mrs Flannagan's, caso last November, but at at that time, sho was only suspected of being a disciple of Lucrozia Borgia; in fact, as may be guessed from tho following resume of the affair) it has taken many months, much dotcctivc skill, and a prolonged trial to bring guilt home to her and her accomplice. The murders committed by thoso two inhuman wretches will take rank with the most atrocious which our criminal annals can produce, a spocially vile feature about them being that greed of money was the incentive to crime. In Soptombor of last year Thomas Hoggins, a labouring man, residing with his wife and...

I've seen him try and fail.&quot; &quot; Don't you remember tho next word in your lesson ? It's the word after cheese.

THE PONSONBY REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 12 April 1884
THE PONSONBY REGATTA. Action's Tips, At an early hour on Monday morning tlie steamer Wellington, which is to act as flagship at the Ponsonby Regatta, will bo anchored about. midway between Shelly Beach and Northcoto Wharf. Ticketholders will be conveyed on board both from Queen - streot Whnrf and Shelly Beach. At 9.30 tho first race will start, And should tho weather prove fine, a good day's sport may be expected. The largo number of iiqw boats entered in different events renders tho task of selecting the winners prophetically more than usually difficult. This is most apparent In the race for twenty-foot open sailingboats, where such firio craft as the Dream, Maacotte, and Ika ate entered. Thoro is little doubt that these will form tho first three, and, further, I fancy the Dream will bo found third; In placing tho other two I feel some hesitation, but give Wnymouth'a boat tho preference. She ia the favourite for anything like heavy weather, although Bailoy's uoat will bo vory heavi...
