Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 January 1882

It will be remembered, says the " P. C. News," that on New Year's Eve a party of young ronghs toak possession of Jung Jung and carried on high jinks there until the arrival of Constable Mullany, when five of them were arrested. In each case a fine of £14, or in default two months's impriaaoi. ment, was inflicted, and only one of ..the five -a resident of Jung Jung-paid the fine. The others went to gaol, but since then three of them have paid the money and been liberated. Only one of them named Blackett, now remains et Ararat to serve his time. It appears that the four young men who were strangers to the place gave false names, and their statements as to their being Collingwood and Ballarat larrikins were simply braggadocio. They hail from Pens hurst and Itokewood. and had evidently come t" Jung Jung, so as to have a spree at an out-of-the-way place away from home. They paid rather dearly for their whistle, however, as in addition to the £14 fine .they were compelled to pay their own...

WHY POT PLANTS DON'T THRIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 January 1882

WHY POT PLANTS DON'T Iti RIVE Tos' is a coinmon saying in colonial gardening experience, and it is not only in the case of plants raised by the ama. ourfrem' seeds or cuttings, but 'also ii cases "where purchases have been" made from nurserymen of acknowledged merit. 'The plants hang in the pots, they may 'exist, and even make 'a feeble spurt' of growth '" now -and: 'again, "but they .have' not the vigour. visible in them; 'when they first arrined (if "purchased), or that we 'expect to see . in plants to' whibh every attention is givn, as the 'case appears to the owner. 'It is scarcely neessary for' the object we have in view-to' point out a radical defect ix the average of colonial amateur pot-plati cultu?e-that the names of certain plants should be 'mentioned.

Agriculture. STATION, FARM, AND GARDEN. CHEMISTRY IN FARMING ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 January 1882

STATION FARM 'AND GARDEN. -B. Ju-rsc'roo. CHEa ISTBY-IN FARIING ECONOMY. WHmra a firm believer in the ,value of chemical knowledge as an aid to agricul tural practise,I do not subscribe blindly to all the chemistry books teach. For, and a- matter of fact. the chemistry of animal economy and of the management of soils does not work outin all cases as lald down in the books. To take a case in point, and one which I have sesn worked out carefully during the recent cold season, in the feeding of pigs. A start was made in May with six little porkers.. Their weight (of the whole six I mean) was between 36 and 401bs., which included the weight of the bag in which they were put upon the scales. Well, the intentian was to bring up those six pigs to between 60 and 801be. each, and dependence for the feeding was placed upon a patch of beets, and the usual supply of the winnowings of wheat from a wheat farm, with perhaps two or three bags of maize, if that grain was sufficiently cheap when in s...

Sketcher. ULSTER FOLK-LORE. THE GREEDY EYE AND THE EVIL EYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 19 January 1882

ULSTER FOLK-LORE. THE GREEDY EYE AND THE EVIL EYE TaE collector of folk-lore in Ulster finds many anperatltlons brought from Scotland by the settlers, as well as legends and fancies pecullar to the Irlsh population. The latter coselat principally of fairy tales and ghost stories, many of them very poetical and graceful; 'and the former chiefly of'supersti tione regarding good and bad lunck, and tales of witchcraft, which are more weird than poetical. Bet as the two rancs have mingled in the course of three eenturies, so their folk-lore has lost something of its distinct character !etice, thouth preserving them in the main. Thus the Preabyterian will sometimes tell of his adventure with the fairies, and the Roman Catholic will assure you that the batter has been spirited out of his churn by s "witch-wife." Most old and middle-aged people of the cottler class in Ulster have strong ideas on the subject of luck. To enter a house where churning is in progress without washing your hands, ...
