AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893
ACRICULTURAL COLUMI. But salt is not only valuable on cromont of its constructive properties-its destructive h qualities are of great use in farming. For Sinstance, it destroys slugs, wire worms, and al Smost all ioasects injurious to crops-ite ausstic e nature being inimical to their weak frame. Sand itisalso the best cleanser of soil, when lib erally applied, that can be employed in the case of weeds. When used for the latter purpose, it should be sown three weeks or a month before seed for the crop is put in. While its ultimate action is to promote veget I able life by presenting to plants the elements of fertility, in the most agreeable and assimilable form that can be desired, its immediate action i to destroy vegetable life. So far as the experi ments have been carried, they prove that, for root crops at least, salt to as valuable, and a much more economic manure than many of the nitrates and sulphata imported at great cost from distant parts of the earth. Onions aretoo vocife...

Wedding Breakfast in Prison. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893
WE?di~ng Breakfast in Prison. A wedding breakfast in a polihece station is a rather rare event even in Paris, where so many strange things happen. But Pave, a poacher, who was recently condemned to a fortnight's imprisonment for going in search of game without a licene, failed to surrender himself to justice. He had, in fact, something very im portant to transact, inasmuch as he was about to enter the bonds of wedlock with a young woman who was by no means abashed by his poaching proclivities, and for whom the sentence hanging over his head had no terrer. The " Telegraph's" Paris correspondent says that the civil part of the matrimonial ceremony took place all right in the mayor's office of the Gobelins district, Pave thinking that he could run the gauntlet of the nolice. The stern eye of the law was upon him, however, for just as the bride, bridezroom, and guests were leaving the .lairic, up stepped a pol;ce commissary. who ordered the poacher to accompany him to the station.

A Driving Veil. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893
A Driving Veil. "I will give you an idea for a driving veil, or one to wear in windy weather," said a fashionable young woman, "one which is the most comfortable thing going, as it is impossible to blow off or get out of position. Buy a large square of any colored grenadine you like, and fasten at each corner a small heavy button. Throw the whole veil over your hat, leaving two corners hanging behind and two in front. Then take the two front ends and tie them around the neckuuder the hair at the back, over the two back ends. The buttons, being heavy, keep the whole thing in place, and tying the two front ends back prevents all the unbecoming folds over the face, which are so ugly when the fullness is all gathered up at the sides. I got this idea from my mother, who tells me that when she was a young girl tcv all wore their veils over their bighats in Usia way." -. - - I

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893
HERE AND ToIW?E, BY TIMp Mace AsrvT Tewy, It is a fine idea to have an annual Parlia mentary visit to the Zoo!ogical Gardens. It must be full of instruction to our legislators. Because, you know, the animals in the cages there are perfect types of politicians. There is the lion. Doesn't he with his noble presence and his sly ways remind you of the politician whose speeches are full of splendid sentiments and lofty principles, but who, all the while, is cat.like andeelf-seeking, waiting to pounce on anythming for his own advantage ? Then look at the snakes in the reptile house, with their glittering eyes and sinuous motion, and see how theyerawlalong in the sawdust, for all the world like the intriguing Parliamen. tarian who creeps stealthily under cover, until he sees an opportunity for inflicting a sting. The parrots, too, with their jubber and chatter, are justlike those members of Parlia ment who only talk to see their names in print and give their constituents the idea that they...
LONG-DISTANCE PIGEON FLYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 October 1893
LUNG - DISTANCE PIGEON FLYING. Making boots and raising homers are not callings conspicuous at first for their cnom patibility. let they ars combinedwith re. m:erkable success by Mr John Day, of No. 11 Waterloo road, London. No one would suspect from the unassuming exterior of Mr Day's house thatit was the residence of any one particnlarly distinguished. Yet Mr Day is knownthroughoutthelengthand breadth of the United Kingdom as the foremost mannin his profession, whose word is law iin all that re. lates to this particular branch of industry. This, as already indicated, is the rearing of homing pigeons--or homers, as they are, mooe familiarly styled by the fancy. The term "carrier " popularly applied to them is erronepus. Mr Dayalso practices as a boot. maker-aed his boots, no doubt, are excellent -but this is merely diversion. His serious pursuit is that indicated. A representative of "The Westminster Gazette," inspired thereto by the pigeon flying contests which have lately been he...

"LLet me in!" was his answer, as he raised his arm, trying frantically to reach the handle of the carriage door--"let me in!" Jess opened the door: Jim scrambled up the step; and the carriage went on, by the marsh land road, towards the cottage. The boys whole look and manner alarmed her. She drew him to her side, for they were alone in the carriage, and she waited im patiently for him to speak. In the silence, the boom of the signal-gun struck upon her ear for the first rime to night and set her heart beating fast. "Look here, miss!
