ANSWER TO NO. I. Your first a strong Den forms for tigers a cage ; By your ¿ext I suppose yon mean ice (is) ; While a son forms your third, whose father's a sage, So your whole we shall reach in a trice : For I find in reply to charade number one, The noble, tfie piaisewortky'name "Denison" NO.

November. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
Earth up young plants, and make fresh j plantations of cauliflowers, cabbages, s savoys, and brocoli. Transplant Chili j pepper and capsicums into a fine rich mould prepared for them, the bed being warm and sheltered ; and as the plants grow, prop them up with sticks. The young and tender plants, as scarlet run- ners, must still be protected from the rays of the sun. Clear the strawberry beds of weeds, and pinch the runners oft Weed, thin, and stir with the hoe the seedling beds of carrots, onions, parsnips, beetroot, &c. ; tie up lettuces to blanch ; drive sticks in the ground for the tall growing peas ; nip off the heads of the beans in blossoms, to prevent their run- ning too high. Asparagus is now ready to cut, in doing which take care not to damage the under-ground tubers. Arti- chokes are also ready to cut, and rhubarb to pull; this must be done by a sudden jerk downwards, which will break the stalk without injuring the plant. Sow seeds for the various successive crops...
Gardening. SORGHUM SACCHARATUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
Cartoning. SORGHUM SACCHARATUM. The season for sowing this very useful plant having now arrived, we have, for the information of those of our readers who may be interested in it, sought out from a gentleman who has largely cultivated the plant in this district, the best method of sowing it. It is as follows:-Burrows, three inches in depth, should be ploughed across the land intended to be cultivated, at a distance of three feet apart. The 0> _ gower should hold a small measure in his left hand, and with the right, as he proceeds along the furrows, drop, at each step, three seeds, so that the plants may grow up in rows equi-distant. The seed should be covered up with a light harrow drawn along the furrow, not across it, as has been sometimes done to great disad- vantage. The cultivation of the sorghum for cattle and horses, in time of drought, cannot be too highly recommended, either for green or dry food. If fed off, when unripe, it rapidly shoots up again, or, if left till it ha...

L. s. d. BY THE AUTHORESS OF "OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE FOURTH.—AUNT ALICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
ï. s. h BY THE AUTHORESS OF " OLD CALEB." SKETCH THE FOTJKTH.-AUNT ALICE. (Concluded from p. 328.J IT was a grand funeral which Mr. Spencer gave his little son : there were white plumes, rich black velvet, and a long train of carriages ; but the chief mourner was not there, for sincerity has no sympathy with mockery, any more than light can commune with darkness. So Aunt Alice stayed at home to weep there. Sympathising friends came with grave faces to tell the bereaved family that it was " a happy release, for it must have been a great tie to dear Mrs. Spencer," while at the same time they .knew that lady had been seen at every place of public amuse- ment, leaving her sick child to the care of hirelings. lt must not be supposed that Aunt Alice habitually shut herself up in her quiet little home, there selfishly to indulge in gloomy thoughts, and to reflect with bitterness upon the past. Not so, she was too good a Christian to act thus ; hers was a large warm sunny heart, which delig...
MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF AUSTRALIAN BUSH LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
M ANNEES AND CUSTOMS OF AUSTRALIAN BUSH LIFE. ^-h. ,1 m 1 m , -. &lt;-Y/ T may be amusing as well as instructive to our readers, first, to inquire into the manners and customs of Australian bush life as they are, and ^ next to show what they might and ought to be. No doubt they are much influenced by a variety of circumstances, some of which have uncontrollable command over the pilgrims of the forest ; others have crept upon them through the simple force of habit. The evils, however, arising therefrom cannot be palliated. We are all of us accountable creatures, and it is the bounden duty of every man to inquire into them to watch narrowly the cause and effect of everything that connects the moral and immoral tendencies which continually surround us wherever we may happen to dwell. The external agencies which are continually floating round us in a sort of chaos, require from their changeable materiality much closer watching than is commonly given to them by the unwary denizen...
The Children's Portfolio. STRIKE THE KNOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
STKIKE THE KNOT. I WHEN we were boys, little fellows, our father began to teach ' us to work, and we were anxious to perform the allotted tasks. We were splitting wood. A rough stick tried all the skill and strength of a weak arm, and we were about to relinquish the task, when father came along. He saw the piece of wood had beed chipped down and the knot hacked round, and took the axe, saying, " Always strike the knot." Tiie words ever remained safe in memory. They are precious words, children ; never try to shun a difficulty, but look it right in the face ; catch its eye, and you can subdue it as a man can a lion. It will cower before you j and sneak away and hide itself. If j you dread difficulties, difficulties will grow upon you till they bury you ia obscurity.
Synopsis af Dr. Livingstone's Travels in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
Spojjsis af Jr. f iiihtgstaue's Craírtls in Santo ftfria Continued from page 310. WE left our travellers admiring the wide expanse of waters of Lake Ngami. The natives say it takes three days to go round, but is in many places very shallow ; it lies about 2000 feet above the level of the sea ; we had, therefore, descended nearly as many since leaviug Kolobeug. It seems to form a part of the great river system beyond, and is fed by the floods, which usually set in about March or April. The rivers in this part of the country are dried up for by far the greater portion of the year, and look more like a system of Dutch enbankments for irrigation, than what we generally picture as rivers ; The waters come down in torrents, but are soon evaporated and dried up, except where large holes tend to pre I serve a longer supply. The theory of anv river losing itself in the sand* Livingstone declares erroneous, and attributes their disappearance to the peculiar formation of the country, and a gra...
CHAPTER VII. NELLY'S TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 23 October 1858
CHAPTER VII. NELLY'S TROUBLES. THE hope of work and good wages, which had led Joe Appleshaw to London, proved to be, at least for some time, quite illusory. The great contractor, for whom Ned Bingly worked, had his com- plement of men ; and till a vacancy ! occurred, or a new job was commenced, Joe stood little chance of employment. . But thoroughly zealous in his friend's behalf, Ned Bingley spoke to many about him, praised his sterling honesty and in- dustry, as well as sought in many direc- tions, when his own day's work was done, those who might know of a job, or speak in the poor fellow's behalf. But this without result. For full a fortnight the Appleshaws re- mained at Nix's lodging, Bingley paying the rent, and getting trust for food for them. But in spite of this hearty proof of friendship, the poor family's life was wretched, not so much because of poverty or disappointment, for to both they had served a bitter apprenticeship ; but on account of the miserable home and its c...
THE FORTHCOMING ANNUAL MEETINGS OF THE ALLIANCE BAND OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858
THE FORTHCOMING- ANNUAL MEETINGS OE THE ALLIANCE BAND OE HOPE. êN the 10th of this month will commence our large annual gatherings of the friends of total abstinence in this city. For some time past these meetings have beeji most successful. Large audiences have clearly shown the powerful hold our principles have taken on the popular mind ; eloquent expositions of our plans and purposes have been given ; the upholders of our once despised canse have been cheered and stimulated to increased exertion ; and our yotÄfttl' disciples, by being instructed and amused, have become more thoroughly attached to our system. These good results should incite every abstainer in Sydney to use all proper means to achieve still greater success. The Committee are tremblingly alive to the responsibility which devolves upon them, and are sparing neither time nor exertion to render the immediate anniversary meetings worthy the glorious cause they are intended to advance. It is not enough, however, that ou...
Poetry. "PITY THE MISERIES OF A NERVOUS MAN." [Newspaper Article] — The Band of Hope Journal and Australian Home Companion — 6 November 1858
" PITY THE MISERIES OF A NERVOUS I MAN." Fam'd Robinson Crusoe, or Alex. Selkirk, What privileged men were they ; In their island homes they could play or Work, No wife or children's frown or smirk, Disturb'd their serenity. Ko busy neighbour nor anxious friend, Their ailments tried to cure ; Tf sick, they could take their own plans to mend, They'd no one to tease them, to bring or to send Them all sorts of remedies sure. They could choose their own time, their own diet and room, Where to breakfast, to dine, or to sup ; Could go out when they chobe, when they chose stay at home, They dreaded no scrubbing-brush, bucket, or broom, When they pleas'd they their cabins clean'd up. They eould dress as they chose, and if it were hot, In Adam's original style ; 'Neath the shade of a tree they could quietly squat, Or roam where they fancied, and not care a jot, For the wild monkeys' chatter or smile. Yet these silly old men, their biographers say, With their freedom were not content ; They w...
