6~ARDBN NOTBS. By Mm ED, GRAT, THE FLOWER GARDEN, r Delphiniums, 'Thi Delphiniuns, or Perennial Lark. spurs, are fast becoming popular as garden flowers, and also as cut flowers for decorative purposes. It is safe to assert that il no other flowcr can so many exquisite shades of blue be found. The original species from which the pre sent garden hybrids have been produced, were discovered in Siberia many years ago, and fromn there introduced into European gardens. By careful hybridi: ing anI selection the present race has been produced. Several leading horti. 1 cultural firms in England have made a Sspecial study of the plants, with the i?. suilt that they now offer a large number of natlel1 varieties, and also good strains of seed fioUm which some good kinds may be raised. .As the plants grow to a food size, they require a fair amount of roomn in the garden, anit are best placed well back from the edges of tile beds, so that lower-growing plants may be placed in front of them.

" Yes, indeed," one of the follows eplied with a rough laugh. " No time for climbing if his honour is in a hurry." Surprised almost into suspicion as he was, Ludovio was too impatient to dispute the matter. " Come--Cap tain," he called to Omportz, " we had better keep down here. We must do as we.are bidden, it seems." Ompertz sprang down in no very amiable mood, but had tact enough to keep his muttered comments to himself. The head man, whom his subordin ates addressed as Gronhartz, now, as they walked on and he had gained hie point, became by contrast surprisingly affable. He began to talk almost volubly of the life in the mountains, of sport, of the Count's prowess as a hunter, and recounted several remlark able foats of strength his master had performed. The follow talked fast. with an evident eagerness to allow...

To the Editor "The Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 7 March 1914

To the Editor "The Advertiser." Sir,-Owing to the retirement of Messrs Turner and Greenwood as hon. treasurer and secretary of the local senior club. I understand the players are making a most determined effort to obtain absolute control of the affairs of the club, at the annual meeting on Monday night next. Rumor hath it that a ticket will be issued, advising the members " in the interests of the club " that certain gentlemen be elected to the various positions. By a most peculiar coincidence the gentlemen to be supported for the positions of secre tary and treasurer are both ex-players, whilst for the other positions, gentlemen who are " favorably disposed towards the players" are " on the ticket." Whilst I have nothing against the gentlemen nominated as citizens, in my opinion this procedure savors of down right impertinence on the part of the team, and I trust every member will resent their unwarrantable dictation as to who shall manage the affairs of the club, by voting directl...
