Future history will refer to him as Notorious Norton or Norton the Notable, unless it drops him altogether or merely refers to him as Noughton, which is perhaps the best thing it can do. Norton is an J-uglishman—oy. birth ; but thia was merely an accident. Had he Iip.hii nnnnnt^/i j,_ .......u probably havo chosen a warmer climate as being more suitable to hia temperament. He has had sums experience on the continent, and can speak _ ronch as fluently aa any Johnny Orapoo. Some people allege thac he left that country because he did nt want to stop there any longer ? but cho probability is that ho commenced to 'write open letters ' to tho Paris press, and the .Re public was afraid that hia effusions would have -i bad effect upo,, the morals of the State school children. He came to Sydney some 14 years ago, which perhaps accounts for tho opinion expressed by Mark Twain, that Satan made our capit...

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

How to He4p the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your goneral printing; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the newspaper your carda dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printer for sotting up tho thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may como when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in. any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary Bupport derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good ?newspaper— one that will still help your town and district— give all your printing to the C.R. Advocate, the only paper published in the Cl...

Cane Cultivation in Hawaii. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 4 February 1898

Cane Cultivation in Hawaii. [The following, by Waltor Maxwell, Director Hawaiian Exporimontal Station and Laboratoriea ia condensed from the Suoau Jocknal.] Some 25 or more yoara ago, whon the observa tions of agricultural sciontiata, particularly Lawea and Gilbort, wore made upon the loss of Boluble nitrogon that results from baiie fallowing, a great revolt occurred against tho practico of fallowing in any degree. It appears to ua that change followed from a want of appreciating certain of tho moro important ohanges wrought in tho nature and conditions of soil by aeration and fallowing. Our observations in tho field, amply confirmed by examinations in the labora tory, go to our further persuasion that certain of our soils, in tho present state of mineral constituents, cannot grow tho crops, of which they can be made capable, without thorough cultivation and exposure to the sun and air, or, where this is not^ possible by reason of rainfall, the systematic application of caustic limo...
