THE FARM. THE EARLY CARE OF CHRYSANTHEMUMS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 10 August 1894

-:ITHE FARM. THE EARLY CARE OF CHRY SANTHEMUMS. Very mtouch of the success we desire ia growing Chrysanthemums depends upon the attention the plant receives during the early stage of its existence. If neglected thien, as most plants are by the amateur, it falls into a habit, ifI may be allowed to use the term, from which it is never likely to fully recover. What should be aimed at is a good start. Large potsare not necessary at first, nor advisable, but a rich soil is. The plant is a great eater and requires rich food, without which it becomes starved and dwarfed. A strong, healthy growth should be secured as a foundation for future usefulnes. While the plant is qui~e yang, c-ne must determine on theform to train itin, and begin operations promptly. If a shrub is wanted, pinch off ehe toFp and branches will start below. These, when developed,will give the bushy form which many prefer for this panro. If preferred to grow it as a tree, allow o branchts to grow along the stem of the pl...

NOT IN HEER LINE. -A-marmrkeLtrait of the peasantry of West moreland, among whodm~ihe poet W'ordsworth lived, is a native love of truth, which neither dnticipates the answer a questioner would like, nor expresses sympathy with asentidient they do not feel. An old woman who had been in Words worth's service was keeping a lodging house at Grasmere. One dveninig a lady, on re turning from a walk, said to her, " Oh, Mrs. b- , have you seen the wonderful sun set ?" "No, hiss R-," ansxwered the oldi lady, drawing herself to her full height; "I'm a tidy cook, I know, and tie- say a decentish body for a landlady, and sic like, but I doan't knaw nothing about sunsets or tem sort of things; they've never been in m y lh ae .'

History of the Women's Franchise Movement in Victoria (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 10 August 1894

History of the Women's Franchise Movement in Victoria BT S. BARKER, J.P. (Continued.) Courtesy is not a consistent part of a member of Parliament, or a would-be member, if there are no votes In it. He cannot afford to be sentimental, It does not pay; when it does he simply " changes." Hence we find that the replies that came te the question "Are you in favor of Womanhood Suffrage," were scanty and purposeless in point. Circulars were forwarded to over 200 Parliamentary candidates, and 22 had tho courage to reply ; 17 were favorable and 5 unfavorable. There were no votes in it then, it rwa a sentiment. .Justice may knock at the Parliamentary do.r, but her knockings will be but feebly responded to, while she is either destitute of, or unable to influence the Parliamentary lubricator - votes. A public meeting was held in the Hotham Town Hall, presided over by the mayor, Cr. J. C. Steel. The meeting was well attended, and its success was largely 'dhe to the efforts of Mrs. B. Smythe, w ...

A WOMAN WITHOUT HOME DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 10 August 1894

A WOMAN WITHOUT HOME DUTIES. A woman who has no home-duties, or whoc does not attend to such duties, is a pest to her acquaintances. It may take her a long time to make her b-eakfast toilut, but her outside garments go on like magic when she has once decided to make a morning or afternoon call. She will not work, ani she will not let her neighbours work. Her acquaintances are kept in a state of chronic discomfort in the expectation of a visit, and a door bell in her vicinity cannot ring without striking terror to the heart of the lady of the house.. A call from this idle person means sinply loss of time without the slightest compensation. The work in the kitchen or the nursery must be aban:. doned; and this means, with practicalJ conscientious housekeepers, not only a giving up o the work for the time, but some time yet to come. The work planned forrthat day and omitted for that day means: overwork at another time, confusion, and anxiety.

Great regret was erpressed at the fact of the early conclusion of the serie3, but Mr. S. P.

Dancing was kept up an hour longer than usual. The Poor was in good order, the music, furnished by GoodalFs band, up to its usual high standard, and the catering of Mr. A.

Football. NORTH MELBOURNE v. WILLIAMSTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 10 August 1894

Football. NORE!1 MELBOURNE v? WIL LIAMSTOWN. BY " ROVER." This match, though regarded as only a practice match for the North, drew a fair crowd to the North Melbourne Re creatmcn Reserve on Saturday. The committee gave Skinner, Todd, and Stevenson a show, in lieu of Manton, MIorrison, and Noonan, though it can hardly be said that they showed good judgment in so donsg, more especially with regard to Noonan, their most re liable back man. The match needs very little description, North holding their opponents too cheaply until the last quarter, when they evidently saw that it w?as time to make an effort, which they did in grim earnest, but could not prevent Williamstown from scoring an equslising goal a few minutes before time. The only bit of good football shown during the match was in the last few mminutes, when both sides worked hard for a lead. Reid, Cox, H. Launder, O'Dea, and the agile Sicily were about the best of the North. Webb was very much in evi dence in the first qtuarter,...
