HOW TREES BEAR FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 22 August 1895

HOW TREES BEAB FRUIT. 'Plums produce their fruit on small natural spurs, situated at the ends and along the sides of the bearing shoots one year up, to four or five years old. Spurs will continue in bearing for a number of years. r .y Ch0§'y trees produce their fruit upon small spurs, or studs, from half-an-iuch to, , two inches in lenjrth, which proceed from two, three, or four-year old wood. Apple and Pear bear their fruit upon, small terminal and lateral spurs, or short robust shoots, which spring from the young branches of two or more yearns growth., | Peach and the Nectarine bear their fruit on the young wood of the previous year's growth, the blossoms rising immediately from the bud. The same shoot seldom bear* in the second year* In pruning this tree, t he- whole aim must be to secure a succession of yearling wood v Apricot bears its fruit much after the style of the plum, but the spurs are longer . and not,, as a rule, so closely set on the- ffi; branches. ^ t N

Agricultural Items. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 22 August 1895

Agricultural Items. A London authority states that the great defect in the Australian produce shipping ;- trade is the irregular supply, and i.t demoralises the market. One week they receive three times as much butter as in the- ; following week. The Danes control their shipments, and so should we in New South ' Wales. Mildura is making paying things out of raisins, having sent 600 tons into the Victorian markets this year — the average price to the growers being 3-£d per lb., and the surplus was exported. London requires over 600,000 cows to supply it with the pioducts of the dairy, 84,000 being needed for milk alone, tall figures. Rabbit sales in London improve day by day. Each ' bunny' is expected to realise ' from lid to a la very soon. . The great cities in the old country, such as Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, . . . Newcastle, York, Hull, &c., populated by millions, are desirous of becoming pur- ^ ^ chasers of Australian dairy produce, rabbits, . , &c., wh...

Meteoric Phenomena [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 22 August 1895

Meteoric Phenomena' Th6 brilliant appearances of meteoric phenomena in, the evening sky lately have ' - ibQen the theme of admiration and comment; r t enough to excite the popular fadulty of the ? marvellous, and to touch the springs of wonder, Advances of scientific knowledge have done much to adjust these and other traditional beliefs to the tests of fact. In the present unromantic times the farthest the ? most superstitious or imaginative of us can i; go is to suggest that possibly thesg appear ances may have some effect on the weather. . But it is discouraging to learn on the best 'expert evidence that even on so simple a ; matter as this the meteor has no value as a portent. The laws that govern the appear* ance of meteoric bodies are sufficiently Well ^ understood now to leave no room for theories even about their influence on the weather. -The observation of their periodicity and its cause settled that question. We now look for meteors and star-showers as regular as for the s...

seven pounds in one week. Not every man who is thin would thank you for fattening him, He doesn't want to be fat, and for very good reasons. Unnecessary fat is a load to carry about, it interferes with a man's power to work, shortens his wind, and dulls his wits. Yet, on the other hand, a certain amount of flesh is needed for health and comfort. For example i A man five feet high should weigh about 1201bs ; a man five feet six inches, 1451bs. } a man six feet, 1781bs. It is a regular ascending scale. The in surance companies allow a variation of 7 per cent' above or below it, and beyond those limits charge extra premium. One shouldn't be mnch over or under his proper weight if he wants to be sound and hearty— and we all do want that. Now we will tell you how Mr. . Thomas Crosby, being under weight, gained seven pounds in a week. He had lost 1J stone, which is too much off for a I man who was never fleshier than he naturally ought ' to be. It was this way. He was right enough up to M...

You will re S'' member that I was introduced to you by a '?= | mutual friend, and after a long beer each, we soon became friendly, and you very quickly found out (how Editors do find out things) that I had spent the happy days of childhood in the dear old town of Camden. You did me the honor to request that I would write a short letter of some sort for your paper. I tried to get out of it— you know that I did. First of all you did not state what the 'fee' would be, but never mind that now, you can send me a cheque ( . ?-' later on. Then 1 made another attempt to get out of it by saying that I had no pen. You would not accept that as an excuse, for you took me over to your office and gave me a pen that was once used by your office boy. That pen will, I am afraid, get me into disgrace ; do roy best it will not write well, while the way the pen spells is simply — well, you know ! ...

The Oaks. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 22 August 1895

The Oaks TFeoM OUR COEBESPONDENT.! A party of . .musicians, vocal and instru mental, gave an entertainment in the ? School of Arts, a few nights ago. The at tendance was but small. It is to be regretted that some noisy young people made them selves objectionable by their behaviour, this is a verv great uity, and should be prevented ? ' at any future entertainments. Home influence, and commendable example -from tlieir elders seem to entirely thrown away on these young people. Respectable people wh.o look forward to a pleasant even ings' entertainment should certainly not be annoyed by a set of rowdy boys. The authorities should see to this in the future ; and the management -of the School of Arts ? should take very strong measures to sup press the like. The scene was described as one of ' gross larrikinism.' Those who gave their services gratuitously should at . least be respected. For the want of such ; respect, adds no credit to the district, and to The Oaks in particular. It is ho...

Snakes are moving about early this year, one was killed at Wivenhoe recently, measuring six feet nine inches long ; there are at least 40 of these reptiles killed every year on this estate. Our roads are in a ve*y bad state just now. Carters and others are much delayed by constantly getting embedded in the sand.- Now that Narellan and Cobbitty will shortly be incorporated, we hope to have these defects remedied.
