THE HORTICULTURIST. The Orchard and Fruit Gardenr The gathering, storing and marketing of. the various fruits in season is now the most im porteant work, andat the same time one to which strictattention andcareshould be given in order toreap the full profits of a good harvest. Frait, as well as fruit trees, possess vitalitv, there is life within thepulp of the fruit and life in the seeds, and as violent treatment tends to destroy all animal lite, so will bruising and rough handling hasten the decay of fruit, and the once delicious pulp will soon become unfit for eating. In keeping or storing fruit, therefore, it is the life we aim to preserve and prolong through the changes of the weather that effect the fruit. Suggestions of this kind will enable a grower to understand o some. thing of the fundamental requirements neces sary for the keeping of choice apples, pears and other kinds of frut. To maintain this condi, tion every specimen must, be taken from the trees by hand and laid car...

,Poultry Yard Scratchings, Don'i overstock your runs. Do not over-feed your stock. Don't breed from inbred stock. Do beg eanly in the poultry yard. Don't omitto gather the eggs daily. Don'tfeed on grain in the morning. Fowls in moult require stimulating food. Crevecaers and La Fleche fowls'are largely bred in France. Look out for roup. See that your poultry houses are weather proof. If yourhickens have a nime green grass run to feed on they should grow like wood. Not hald enough, poultry eaten in the colonies; too much beef andn mutton -con sumed. Every breeder should introduce new blood into his stock whether they be pure bred or crossbred. Ventilation should always be secured in the tops of the aides of the poultry'house, never freom the Iowerparts. A frequent mistake isto put*the perches high up in the roosting houses; they should not be more tbanlft. from the round. - Poultry ought to be raised on all vineyards and orchards, to keep downothe insect piest. If tbis was done, we wo...
Max O'Rell on the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Max O'Rell on the Colonies. o In reviewing Max O'Rell'a latest work the "St James's Budget" writesa:-But Mr Max O'IRell does not confine himself to telling tales which refleot on his hosts. In his genial fashion he plays the part of a de tractor of our colonial enterprise, and does so with a degree of unfairness which the Boulevard journalist could hardly improve upon. We are told, for example, in one of his pleasant little asides, that John Bull has acquired his possessions abroad " at the coat of very little blood and a good deal of whisky-always converting the natives to Christianity and their territory to his own uses." Mr Max O'Rell cannot, of course, be expected to know anything of the bloody struggle which culminated in the establish ment of British supremacy in the Canadas; but he might, without doing any great amount of outrage to his Gallio sus ceptibilities, have taken some account of the long and arduous warfare which had to be waged against savagery in South Africa and ...
Lord Wolseley at Sebastopol. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Lord Wolseley at Sebastopol, The first place in the " United Service Magazine" is occupied by Lord Woleeley'" description of his visit last August to the old trenches before Sebastopol. He had last seen them in 1859. His reminis cences of the privations and peril of the old Crimean days are vividly and feelingly set forth. The intense emotion with which he recalls the repulse from the Redan iapve to a hot invective against the lack of leadership dispiayed in that unfortu. nate affair. He tells of a brave boy--co rade who was the last man to leave the Redan, and who "had killed more of the enemy than any other man there," hout who was so overcome with shame of defeat as to sit down and cry like a child. HOW THE SOLDIERS 5BIST. Even when the companies were relieved and withdrawn to rest after an average of eleven hours on duty out of the twenty.four : -Oh, what a bed our soldiers had to lie on ! I shudder as I think of wha our crowded tents were like, and what an amount of human, unco...
Harry Nichols' Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Harry Nichols' Escape. A burning sun beat down upon the sands of he mesa or great plain, bathed the mountains in a flood of hazy light, and made the dark, yawning canyons seem cool and attractive refugee. Tired, footsore Hlarry Nichols, trudg ing along the scorching tableland, hurried to wards one of those deep, dark gorges, anxious to find a retired and cool place in which to rest and think and wonder what was to become of him. Three days before Harry had seen his mother laidaway in her lonely grave in just another such canyon as this to which he was now turn ing his steps. The rough, kindly miners, for whom she had cooked and washed for the last two years, had given her as decent a burial as they could, and more than one bad offered Harry a home if he chose to take it. But Harry wanted to get away from the camp. He did not want to stay where everything reminded him of his great loss. Then, too, he wanted a a different life. He earnestly longed to go to school and "learn things." W...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Speaking recently at Finchley. the Rev Dr Morison said that a friend of his, in a conversation with Mr Gladstone only a little while ago, ventured to ask what were his views concerning man in his future state. The reply was characeeristic of one whose life has been an example of ceaseless eLergy in work and the acquirement of knowledge "I believe that in the future man's state will be one of enlargement."
The Bush Cavalier. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
The Bush Cavalier. ----o The still silent bush and the wide yellow plain, Thegaunt weird white gum trees that stud the lone creek Haveacharm which elsewhere you may look for in vain, Have a language which Nature has taught them to seac; And the sweet wattle bloom with its fragrance is dear To the heart of each wandering bush cavalier. The plains and the mountains, the creeks and the trees. All Nature's great book filled with wondrous lore Are the pages most loved and most studied by those Who live far away from the city's great roar, Who lie down to sleep with the stars overhead, A saddle their pillow, the brown turf their bed. When the thunder of thousand hoofs makes the ground tremble With the rush of the scrubbers across the wide plain, There's a rapture which no other joy can re semble In racing to head them and wheel them again; For the stockrider knows neither danger nor fear, And whatjockey can ride like our bush cavalier ? When the great orb of day has just sunk in the west,...
Men and Their Weaknesses. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Men and Their Weaknesses. Let us have the table turned for a time. Let us hear less about women'sweakneas for shopping and more of man's predilection for " nap" and " lodge" meetings and betting and beer. Let us know wty it is not as sensible for a woman to eat slate pencils as it is for a man to smoke tobacco: why the big theatre hat is more of a nuisance than the man who has to " see a man" at the end of every act. Let us know the popular estimation of the breakfast-table growler, of the one who ie a saint at home and a sinner abroad, a bear in the domestic circle, and a bean in society. Give the women a rest, and let man take her place upon the gridiron of public criticism. It is all well enough to "shoot folly as she flies," butthe gunner should not be blindl to all except the feminine specimens of the bird. Let cowardly man stand up and take his share of the shbaft from the censors of haman ways and byways. It will do him a world of good, even if the first effect is mortifying ...
"Singing Sands" in the South Seas. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
*Singing Sands" in the South Seas. In the corner of a London paper we chanced upon the following idyllic little word.picture of an experience in one of the South Pacific Islands. In this island (says the writer) are some wonderful singing asmds. These sands are in a small desert. In the centre of the desert are about a dozen cocoanut trees, and about five miles distant is the ocean. Ksa Ple (a native guide) and myself reached the trees about noon. Our horses, as well as ourselves, were about used up, travelling through the deep sand under a blazing nun. As we lay stretched at the roots of the towering cocoanuts, the trade winds set in, cool and refreshing, from the ocean. Notwithstanding the heat and our wearied condition, there was an en echatment about the situation that caused me to think of the beautiful stories I had readin my childhood. I began to feel the soft touch of slumber, and all at once I besod a faint musical tinkling, as if troops of fairies were coming to greet us a...

Aluminium Boats for Service. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Aluminium Boats for Bervice. An investigation has recently taken place with a view to testing the suitability of aluminium boats for service in the United States Navy as a substitute for those made of the heavier metals, iron and steel. The outcome of this iaquiry is a report which de terminee that alumminum can be used for emall boats, and for steam-launches under certain conditions of service, and re commends that a trial boat be made for experiment. It is possible to build boats of ample strength and of less weight than wooden boats of the same size, but the metal is liable to be damaged by collisions against sharp projections, such as the edges of piers. -be report goes on to point out that the only ray in which aluminium boats can be made better than iron boats in withstanding the hard knocks of actual service is by increasing the thiokness of the metal.
The Antiseptic Properties of Ozone. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
The Antiseptic Properties of Ozone. Phyasiste seem to ba still very much in the dark as to what constitutes a healthy or unhealthy atmosphere. Thus, Dr Petrie has examined no fewer than a hundred samples of air from a Berlin sewer, and has found them perfectly free from noxious organisms. If the results of these experiments may be relied upon, and if bacteria really cause the deadly consequences ascribed to them, a sewer minust be a far healthier place than a heated recention room. It has, however, been urged that aewerair possibly contains poisonous ehemi cal substances capable of exerting very mis chievous effects. From recent researches by H. Christmas at the Pasteru Institute It would seem that ozone has Lot any antiseptic effects in air unless it exceeds in quantity one-tenth per cent., and that long before this lmit is reached, the air becomes irrespirable.

1I. Zola at the Vatican. AM. Zola seems to have returned to Paris quite cheeriul, after his repulse st the Vatican. His failure to obtin iu dinciee with His Holiness Leo XIL 'was, as complete as any of 'the euminent novelist's attempts to enter the French' Academy. Alarge amount of honest in dustty Zola seems to have expended over that forlorn hope of his at Rome, yet he is not home again without having ac quired certain. "information." "With patience, address and appropriate pour boires," he remarks, "one can inform himselfevery wayand always." Judge of the value of the " infoimatien" gained by the following extracts from Zola's note book published by the "Debate": A.

A Song .ofHarvest. Reap,-O reab, gather and reap; Whiore goldent ripples laugh and run, For the hush of ucoutide, still sad deep, Lies on the ripuned errs like sleep, t Where corulands greet the sun. Lilt up your weary eyes, behold The golden fields. the gulden air: The west wind flecks the swaying gold With light and shadow matntfld, And gold gleams everywhere.

THE ROOT OF THE MATTER. A SOCIAL STORY. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
THE ROOT OF THE MATTER. A SOCIAL STORY. BY H. H. COAnsoros. CHAPTER X. "I admlt you made good your point." said.Dr Buiton, "that the enforcement of trade union principles would benefit the working class, as it would secure to them a arger share of the national income. In trades which are free from foreign rivals the effect must be all to their advantage. But I don't see where you're coing to stop. Would you eo on, as inventior. are applied, to conutnu out rednctions of the hours of labour?" " Why not ? " replied Blake. " Improved procesees now affect the worker disastrourly. In the long run he gets a small advantage by the reduction in price, but the displacement of labour increases competition and makes it more difficult for him to find employment even at a lower wage. My pro posal, or rather the trade unionist proposal, would simply give to the working class a large proportion of the gain due to better pro. ?eses of production. It would make these appliances labor-saving in the tr...

AMERICAN HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
AMERICAN HISTORY BY BILL NYE. One fine day in the fifteenth century a middle-aged gentleman might have been observed (and, for that matter, very likely was) calling on Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain. e carried a mal globe done up in a newspaper, and a testimonial from the Priorof St. S3mething's. The document set forth that Columbus (for it was none other) was by pro fession a discoverer, but out of work on account of the depression in trade. N'othing was doing in his business just then; but he had always given eatisfa-ttonu so far, and as everything he had discovered had remained that way, and could be inspected, he was willing to let his work show for itself. The interview went briskly till the money qoestion was touched on, when Ferdinand remarked that his own salary was some doubloons in arrears, and that the palace had not been painted for eight years. "We ewe the hired girl," added his ?ajesty, "for three weeks, and I've taken orders on the store till I'm tired of it." But Is...
