KHOL-RABI AND ITS USES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
KHOL-RAB1 AND ITS USES. Kobl-rabi, although strictly a cabbage, stands midway between the cabbage and the turnip, and partakes of the character of both. The edible portion closely re sembles a well shaped globi* turnip grown above around. When young aud pro* periy cooicea it is as venaer ana auiicate as the cauliflower, and has a more pleasing flavor. When old it is tough, stringy, and unpalatublo, except that portion next to the ground. No inattorhow tough and hurd the upper portion may bo, the lower part is always teuder. Kohl-rabi is lit to eat only when young and not more than two inches in diameter. To that end a succession of planting is necessary — not, however, for a summer crop, unless grown in a moist s---il and uuder a lattice shade — as it will not thrive during the summer period in the open. In this respect it is quite similar to the turnip. The seod may be sowa as soon as the soil is in good condition to work, either in drills the 6ame as the beet, and thinned out to t...
FARM AND GARDEN. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. GROWING COW PEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
FARM and garden. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. GROWING COW PEAS. The great value in growing Cow Poas is now becoming well recognised. The primary object in producing this crop is for the improvement of the soil, and it is most generally adopted by those farmers with poor or worn-out land. When I rightly managed the results with peas are | about aB good as from a crop of clover. Indeed, they have an advantage over clover in the fact that they cau be grown in a very short time, often as a catch crop, and on soil too poor to grow clover. The richer the soil the greater the growth of peas, and the more nitrates and other forms of plant food are made available for future crops ; yet on any poor soil they will thrive and cause a great im provement in the character of the soil for future crops. Not only is the fertility increased, but also tho mechanical condi tion of the soil is greatly changed for the better. The shading of the soil, the smothering of weeds and the boring down of the roots, have th...
HUMOUR [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
HUMOUR. It is very hard on a youn g man to 6pend two months deciding which of two girls he will choose for his wife, and then to find out when he proposes that neither of them will have him. [ George : ' All these articles about the danger of contagion from kissing are very alarming, don't you think ?' Dora : 4M — yes; but we women greatly admire courage in a man.' Inconsistent. — She : ' What is the cor rect translation of the motto of that lovely ring you gave me ?' He : * ' Faithful to the last.' ' She : ' The last ! How horrid !

TELEGRAMS. SYDNEY, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
TELEGRAMS. [From our own Correspondent.] SYDNEY, , Monday. Owing to the state of his health, Lord Hopetoun will be unable to at tend the State Banijuet on 1st Janu ary. Sir W. J. Lyne yesterday declined to make any definite statement as re gards what had taken place at the Premiers' Conference. It is under Im 1... ,3 „ i.i„ 11.. in coming to an understanding during the early part of the proceedings, and it appeared very likely that tlie con ference would prove abortive. Sir W. J. Lyne found the Premiers extremely hostile to him, and said they came to Sydney purely as an act of courtesy ; and did not accept his invitation as being one to join his Ministry. One of the Premiers is known to have pointed out to Sir W. J. Lyne that because of his hostile attitude he had always taken to federation he was not the man who should be at the head of tli 3 fi'tt Federal Government, and that ' Lyne was urged even now to recommend the Governor to send for Barton. Messrs Turner and Holder had an in...
SKETCHER THIEVES ON THE BATTLEFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
SKETOHER THIEVES ON THE BATTLEFIELD. Of all the despicable ruffians in the world, none are more worthy of contempt and the'fato of being shot at sight than the inhuman wretches who make it their business to plunder the dead or wounded soldier. So revolting, indeed, does thia -rArlr onnaav fknf 1 , = tt,,. dence from South Africa to prove that such vile beings exist, it would hardly be believed that human nature could sink so low. At the Cape, as is well known, there is a large contingent of what can only be described as the scum of the earth. This iB, and always will be, the case where a land has been a dumping ground for the ne'er-do-wells of the world, where for tunes have in not a few instances been made easily and quickly, and where men of all nations meet and are mixed up with blacks. And one outcome of the present position is the battlefield robber, i ' Many a man, lying wounded after the 1 fight, has met his death, not in conse quence of the hurt that haB laid him low, I but ...

SHORT STORY. A Tale of a Tea-House. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
SHORT STORY. A Tale of a Tea-House. By Stephen Bond. John Dene, barrister-at-law, -with his knees tacked comfortably under the hos pitable table of the Pagoda Tea -Rooms, was deep in thought. 'A lie/ mused John, 'is one of the most expensive luxuries in the world. To tell a lie is like starting a carriage or a yacht — one never knows when the bills for repairs and elaborations will cease to come in/ As John had perjured himself for a solid half-hour on the previous afternoon during his conversation with the pretty waitress who dispensed the tea and muffins at the Pagoda, he spoke with Bome authority. Wherefore he waited the advent of hiB muffins, and possible developments, with some uneasiness. He had not long to wait. There was a clatter at the lift, so dis creetly hidden behind the golden-brown cat-serge curtain ; a sweet, dear voice, entirely devoid of the 'twang* of Cockney accent, demanded ' More muffins/ Then the curtain was thrown aside, and tiie prettiest, neatest, and daint...
Nature Steals Ideas. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
Nature Steals Ideas. Plagiarism in literature is loudly con demned, but nobody thinks of condemning the plagiarism of Nature. Yet Nature frequently steals the ideas of men, and the plans and schemes of novelists are continually being developed in real life. Perhaps the most remarkable instance of Nature borrowing an idea was one wuiia iwuurreu two years ago in .Lan cashire, when Dame Nature took a hint from certain colliery proprietors as to the best means of putting out a fire. The fire broke out between thirty and forty years ' ago in the coal pits of Sfcelmersdale, nea r Liverpool, and after it had been raging some time, the owners of the colliery conceived the idea of diverting the river Tawd so as to run the water down the shaft The idea was duly carried out, and the , fire ceased. But almost immediately i afterwards the fiames barst out again 1 with tenfold intensity. The mine had been bo weakened with fire and water that it would not bear another flooding, and, as it was impo...
TOLD OF SIR GEORGE WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
TOLD OF SIB, GEORGE WHITE. Many stories are told concerning the pluck and coolness of General Sir George White. When serving as a colonel on the Afghan frontier, his command was sent to tbe front, but he was ordered to re main as secretary to the Viceroy. He asked to be allowed to go. but was re fused until he clinched tbo matter by putting the question : ? What will be said, my lord, if my regiment is cut to pieces and I not with it,?' The Viceroy! yielded, and White rode day and night until he reached the regi ment. Those who saw the welcome he received from the men say that it was a scene never to be forgotten. In that ex pedition he won his Victoria Cross. At the end of an exhausting march tbe regi ment, about to bivouac, found that the Afghan guns covered tbe position. White ordered them to advance and take the height where they were posted. The men, physically unfit for the task, only looked at him helplessly while he repeated the order, and made no advance. Thereupon, White r...
PEACE AND GOODWILL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
I'EtCE AM) GOODWILL. It is now 1900 years since the King of men was heralded into this world by the prophetic utterance : ' On eartli peace, goodwill toward men.' Those of a pessimistic turn of mind may think that this desired state of things is slow in its approach, even if it be approaching at all. In proof of this somewhat gloomy view of the outlook, they point to the ware in South Africa and China, and remind us of the fact that the so-called Christian nations of Europe arc armed to the teeth, and ready to fly at each others throats. But they forget that to be well armed is the surest preservative of peace ; and that in the remark of the Duke of Wellington there lies a world of truth. ' The true object of all battles,' said the Duke in a conversation with Croker ' is the peace of the world.' The fact which has weighed with those nations poisoned with Anglophobia is this : That England is well armed and ready at any time to defend the rights of lier J subjects against any or all ...
HUXLEY SURPRISED THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
HUXLEY SURPRISED THEM. It is said that the late Professor Hux ley, during a lecturing tour, was pressed to preside at a meeting to be held by the Anti-Tobacco League. The Professor ac cepted the invitation, and the following night found himself in the chair. A large audience had assembled, and gave the chairman an exceedingly warm greeting. ? Ladies and gentlemen/ said the Pro fessor on rising. ' I shall open these pro- I ceedings by relating a Uttle incident I which occurred some years ago. I was visiting a dear friend of mine, who was at the time deeply interested in a dis covery recently made in connection with science, and, being mucn interested my self, we exchanged views, which naturally led to much animated discussion. How ever, notwithstanding the similarity of our tastes in various studies, there was one point on which we differed — my friend was an inveterate smoker, whilst I, on the contrary detested tobacco in any and every form ' (groat applause). 4 After dinner we usua...

WAYS OF LIVING. NEARING THE NORE LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
WAYS OF LIVINGS NEARING THE NORE LIGHT. This article will be limited to the last stretch of the Thames, between the lower reaches and the sea. Some of tbe most characteristic features of this region will be passed in review : the quaint habits and old-world beliefs of its residents, and the tales of comedy and adventure told in its inn parlours or over the cabin stoves of its little craft. The first question that naturally occurs is ; Where does the Thames end, and tbe eea begin F This is what the newspapers call a controverted question. The official boundary, it is true, stretches across from Foulness on the northern shore to Shell ness on the Isle of SVeppey. But the dividing line is generally considered among river folk themselves to be marked by the sandbank above which floats the most ancient and most famous of British lightships, the 'Nore Light/ Sailors passinp that Dutch-built barge on an inward journey have a curious, but impolite, method of their own of saluting the tresh ...
The Hay Deniliquin Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
Tlic Uuy-DcniEiqniQ Railway. Now that the Railway League, as sisted by our energetic and persistent member, Mr. Frank Byrne, has ?extracted a promise from Mr. O'Sulli van. Minister for Works, that he will visit Hay at an early date, there is hope that before long Deniliquin and Hay may be connected, and a natural outlet for the products of this part of the colony be provided. The League must secure from Mr. O'Sullivan a pro mise that if possible the work should be carried out. The Commissioners and the Ministry will probably veto the proposal, but the common sense and fairness of the public mind will commend it, and, we hope, carry it through. The arguments set forth by Mr. A. Jameson, of Deniliquin, are worth consideration, and we have pleasure in commending them to the reading public, and especially that portion of it interested in the con struction of this line. Extracts from Mr. Jameson's letter will be found on pape 4 of this issue. Holidays. — AVe are going to make holidays of...
