ROBERT FULTON'S FIRST PADDLE-WHEEL BOAT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894

ROBERT FULTON'S FIRST PADDLE-WHEEL BOAT. It was said of the boy Robert Fulton that he was what might be called a dull scholar, and once when chided by his teacher for his inattention to his studies he replied that his head was so full of original notions that there was no vacaut place to store away the contents of dusty books. One of the neighbours of his father, one Denter Grumpp, was very fond of fishing, and he had built for this pur pose a flat-bottomedboat or scow, and he used to avail himself of the labours of his son Christopher and his neighbour's son R obert to aid him in his pursuit, by getting them to pole the boat over the waters of the Conestoga, while he fish poled the perch and the bass into the boat- As well may be imagined, this was not much amusement for the boys; but one of them put on his thinking cap as he pushed his way along, and, as usual, pushing and thinking won in the end. Tiring of pole-pushing, Robert Fulton concluded that he would go over the hills and ...

THE TURKISH COURT ASTROLOGER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894

THE TUIKISH COURT ASTROLOGER, Notwithstanding the progress the Turks have made of late years in the arts of civili zation, all, from the highest to the lowest, over the length and breadth of the Ottorecn Empire, are a prey to the devoutest super. stition.

TO RAISE POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894

' TO RAISE POULTRY. Br MA?N TwAng. [Being a letter written to a Poultry Society that had conferred a complimen tary membership upon the author.] Seriously, from early youth I have taken an especial interest iv the subject of poul try-raising, and so thisi membership touches a ready sympathy in my breast. Even as a schoolboy, poultry-raising was a study with me, and I may say without egotism that as early as the age of seven teen I was acquainted wite all the best and apeedicet metlhods of raising chickens, from raising them off a roost by burning iucifer matches under their noses, down to lifting them off a fence on a frosty night by insinn ating the end of a warm board under their heels By the time I was twenty years old, I really suppose I had raised more poultry than any one individual in all the section round about there. I have had so much experience in the raising of fowls that I cannot but think that a few hints from me might be useful to the Society. The two methods I have a...

AGRICULTURAL. DRAINING BY PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894

A:GRIC UL TUR;AL. .DRAINING: BX I' LOUGH-ING. The plough has no small efect on the moisture of the soil. It found the lilinions prairies. for example,covered with water, but breaking up the soil increased drain age until the excess has been :mtich re duced. In Kansas the plougli has in creased the moisture in the soil. Break ing up the ground has allowed more of the rrin to penetrate, and the increased capillarity has better regulated the amount of moistuse in it. Of course other agencies were at work in both cases ; but the part done by the plough is none the less real or important. But by keeping the desired point in view n ploughing, and ploughing accor dingl I, we may multiply the effect of the plough on the moisture in the soileither to reduce or increase the amount. If there is an excess, then we are to p!ough in such a way as to favour the escape of the water. The most convenient method of plcughing is to plough around the outside of the field or of the " land." But on flat g...

THE GOVERNMENT POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 27 July 1894

THE GOVERNMENT POLICY. ?EVx~r week we expect the Budget will be brought before Parli;ment.and passed. The large deficit of £500,000 stares the government in the face, notwithstanding the liberal retrenchment doings. There is to be a further retrenchment in the Railway, Department we believe, to the extent of 500 bands, who will be com pensated by blocks of land, which they will doubtless make blossom like the rose, and as the wilderness has been made to do where our- present farms are flourishing. We think, however, that it will put another nail into the coffins of the townspeople, that is, as ;far as present prosperity is concerned, for although the people will be relieved of a certain amount of debt, the relief will not be felt just now. Certainly the right thing to do is to relieve the congested metropolis of its government servants, v ho, by reason of the scarcity of work, get a comfortable wage with comparatively little to do. The sins of one govern ment are visited upon the th...

Customer: "N-no, not in any special hurry, why ?" Groceryman: "Well, you see, the fact is, I'm just out of rice. but if you will sit down for a few moments, I will go over to the Clifton House-that hotel over there, and get a few pounds." Customer: "All right, go ahead, but hurry up, please. Er-by the way. isn't that rather a strange place to go to lay in a stock of rice?" Groceryman: " Oh! not at all. The grocers of this place get all their rice at the hotels." Customer: " How does that happen ?" Grocerymaa : "Why, you see, nine couples out of ten, who get inarried, come to the Falls on their wedding tour, and when they disrobe at night they leave from a handful up to a quart of rice on the floor of their room.

He carried a small brown bag in his hand, and over his arm hung a fashion ably-cut topcoat. He was evidently just from the country, although his crothes were of a recent city make. ,o one was in the office except the office boy. slwhom he found sitting in the cushioned chair of the broker with his feet on the desk, industriously engaged in smoking a cigarette. As the visitor appeared at the door of the Lack office, the office boy glanced at him through a cloud of blue and ill-smelling smoke, and exclaimed between puffs, "Come in, young feller my lad, don't be afraid." The visitor's face expressed surprise, but he said nothing. " I suppose." said the office boy with non ohalance, "that you've come to see old Brown ?" "Well, went on the youth glibly, " he ain't in. He's out of town on a bender." "On a what ?" asked the visitor. "On a spree. You see he se...
