THROUGH THE WHEATFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
* THROUGH *HEOTEA^ IBy Chables Ltons.] I have just returned from a trip to the lower north and the following remarks anent the present condition and appearance of tho crops may interest your readers : — We took train to Tarlee and thence went hy traps via Stockport, Saiter's Springs, Alma, and westward to the railway-station at Owen, where we again took rail to the city. The crops generally for this time of year are looking very healthy. I have never seen the color better in October for years. True, the growth is short for the moat part, but the plants are sturdy and capable of standing dry weather without detriment if they get cooler days shortly. An inch of rain just now in the north would mean good crops, because of the benefit im parted to the plant before it comes into ear — a critical time in all seasons. A few instances were met with where scientific farming proves that .the extra trouble and expense are fully justified, viz., on the land that had been treated with bonedust t...

LIVE STOCK SHIPMENTS. THE ENGLISH AND THE WEST AUSTRALIAN TRADE. The criticisms to which the live stock trade between Australia aud England have been Eubjected have been instrumental in bringing the business under the notice of a continually widening circle of readers. Each shiiunent now is watched with considerable interest, and the details regarding the disposal of the consign ments in Liondon, and the reports as to the profitableness or otherwise of the trans action are awaitea wn some expec tancy. Those engaged in the trade at the other side ot the world, with one or two notable exceptions, are inclined to look upon the business with disfavor, and Mr. Young, when lie said he was not very hopeful about the live stock trade, when interviewed last week on his return from England, only voiced the sentiments of a large number of of people in England. The unfavorable com ments which are mada from timo to time do* not apply, however, to the small ex perimental shipments which have been...

THE SALISBURY DIAMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE SALISBURY ^IAMOra. In the middle of the general election in England a remarkable diamond from South. Africa came into the possession of Messrs. Streete'r, of Old Bond-street. From its strange resemblance to the Prime Minister the stone has been called the Salisbury diamond, and a movement has been started by some enthusiastic Conservatives to present it to their leader. The diamond is in its natural uncut state,' and about 11 in. in length. When taken recently to Hatfield the stone was naturally a subject of exceeding interest to Lord Salisbury and his family, who all mar velled at the extraordinary likeness. Our sketch is reproduced from the Queen.

A MESALLIANCE AND ITS SEQUEL. The death of the Princess Victoria of Capua brinjrs to mind (writes a London paper) the terrible shock given to society some years ago by the marriage of the Prince of Capua, brother of the King of Naples, to Miss Pene; lope Smith, of reputable but obscure parentage in Ireland. Mies Penelope Smith was pos sessed of the greatest beauty, of exceedingly hitrli ficmirn.fcinnfl n.riH nrniiH fpmnpp_ fihp wan wooed aud won by the then heir-presumptive to the throne of Staples, and was at first re: fused all acknowledgment of her rank and title by the members of the court. After a while, however, a middle course was adopted. Penelope Smith was ad mitted to share the society of a Royal familv of Naples — described by Sir William Hamil ton in a former generation as the 'most vulgar, vicious brood upon the face of the earth' — on condition of her acceptance of a distinct title, with the understanding that she was not to consider herself a member of the august fami...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The few days of hot weather experienced at the end of last week were very trying for the wheat at its present stage, and if it had con tinued the effect on all cereals would have been disastrous. Fortunately a change set in at tbe beginning of the present week, and nice refreshing showers fell at intervals, although, the fall over the areas necdintr the rain most was very light. Some of the crops in the lower north are well advanced, and promise some heavy hay cuts, but it is apparent on travelling through, tbe country that nearly all the hay will bo cut this harvest south of Goyder's line of rainfall. Above the line there will be comparatively little straw, as the growth has been very light, but in the event of favorable weather setting in towards the end of the present month and the beginning of NovemLtr many of the crops will yield good average returns of grain. Splendid rains fell last week in Victoria, the result of which will be the saving of the cereal cro...
