T'oseo fiurnish the t.r tilizers and the cash wherewith to improve the farm. Vineyards arerapidly increasing in the F ench colony of Algeria. T"hee have already been planted 125,000. For sheep it seldom pays to grind grain. For young stock grain may often be profitably cooked. Potatoes may often be cooked and led to young stock to advantage. Milk, either fresh or sour, buttermilk, skimmed milk, mixed with meal, or in any other furmr, is just the thing for fowls.. It will pay better to give waste milk to fowls than to pigs. A new seedless grape has just come into notice in France. It is a table grape of the Chas elas family, and its seedless character makes it especi ally desirable for this purpose. Give warm food to fowls in the mornin;, and see tieat they have plenty of water that is kept from freezing. ...

In Divers Places. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
In Divers Places. BY A SEA-SCARER. The strangest of the numberless stories I have heard from old divers was the relation of what happened to a man whose time, he said, had been much of it spent under water. We met on' Christmas Eve, during a journey in a second-class carriage, and the story he told me and the only two other passengers in the compartment appears incredible 1 There are, however, the two other persons to vouch for the facts, only, unfortunately, as they were perfect strangers to me, I have not their names and addresses. But as he offered to take me down to the spot and show me what he had seen-supposing the circumstances to remain the same-I can hardly dare to.cast discredit on his experience, particularly as I declined to take the measure he proposed to assure:me of' the truth of his story. I had better give it'in his own words "'Twern't. long since," said he, "I were engaged to go down to a ship what was said to have a lot of old silver dollars aboard her, and the pa...

Reminiseenes of an American Detective. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
Reminiscenes of an American Detective. A hotel we may call the Roscoe House was more like a boarding house than an hotel; it was without a bar, or even a cigar stand, and it was the resort of a number of the elite; of young men and families who preferred its quiet, home-like attractions, and who had money to pay handsomely for the very best of. service, cuisine, and atten tion. It was "toney" in the extreme. But the proprietor of the Roscoe House was nearly at his wits' end-a black sheep had somehow slipped in among his flock, and was preyieg upon the valuables of:his guests. Watches, rings, chains, and bracelets were missing, and latterly even money was spirited away in the most mysterious man ner. It. ws a terrible plight, and all the boarders were assailing him with complaints, I and demanding that "something must be f done." . Aside from the loss, the idea that a disreputable being was among them was terrible, a There was no clue, and what set the pro. i prietor nearly distracte...
Scientific Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
Experiments with the electric light in fofcing plant growth are disappointing. The interesting fact has been demonst rated by Arthur Searle, that the Milky Way is about two magnitudes brighter than the mean brightness of the sky, and a square degree of the Milky Way must give between fiHe:and six times as much light as an average square degree of the rest of the sky. The importance of the public laboratory in Paris is now so well appreciated that it re. quires a staff of forty persons t test the santil.es of fool, liquors, etc.. fir aiult, ra. tions r im purities, while sim tir i ntttutions have b -en establshed in oth r Fle Iih cities, uunder the central administrat:on of Paris. From recent researchrs it appears that chlorophyl, the remarkable substance to which the vegetable world owes tie color of its foliage, is tuade "up of two coloring ma'ters, a green and a yellow ; the'relative proportions being one hundred of the former to one of the latter. Both have been lately attained i...
OUR ILLUSTRATION. A NEW CITY OF HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
OUR ILLUSTRATION. A NEW CITY OF HEALTH. It seems that at last the Government of New Zealand is becoming alive to the great importance of the medicinal springs and hot lakes of their North Island, as they have de termined to found and. establish a species of National Hygeia in that district, where it is hoped the sick of all nations will flock to be cured by the healing waters. The new city is' called-for it is already established on paper - Rotorua, after the, celebrated lake upon whose southern shore it is to be built. .The site of the city is chosen with singular happiness; not only is it among the most valuable of the springs, but the view of the lake obtained is very beautiful. . A large ex panse of clear blue water, on which seems to float the island of Mokoia, surrounded with hills densely clothed with the evergreen forest of New Zealand, lies in front of it; on one side is Ohinemuti, the old Maori town, with its countless hot springs and lakelets; and on the other Whakareware...

A Judge's Innocence. of Cards: Two residents of Springwells had a difficulty over a game of cards the other day, and the resunlt was the arrmst of one for as?ault and battery. When he was called the complainant took the stand to explain how it happened. "You see, judge,"' he began, "we were three points up... Wliat's a point ?" blandly enquired the court.

"Why, he shuffled the cards and dealt the hand, and it was my first play." - " Well, go on. Perhaps I can understand." ".I led the ace of diamonds and he trumped it with a club. That is, he refused suit." "Da you mean he refused to be sued ?" "No, sir. I'd like to explain this thing to you, because it was about the suit we had our fuss." "I see-go on.

A Good Pair of Lungs. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
A Good Pair of Lungs. The other day, when .the. Carlton fire brigade was giving an exhibition, a country man walked up to the captain and asked " I say, mister, what makes the waiter come out o' the pipe an' go so high ?" "Well, you see, we've got a very strong lunged man out in the further part of the town, who is hired by the corporation. to blow whenever there is a fire. We get the pipes full of water, and then he blows in the other end and blows the water through. lie often gets tired and has to stop, and then the water stops, too," and the captain adrhoitly turned the cock in the nozzle and shut off the stream.: " We need somebody to take turns with him, but we cannot find anybody with strong enough lungs to do the work. "See, lie is resting now.": SI say, mister, what kind of a looking man is that fellow ?" . " Why, he looks very much like you.n You remind me of him more than any other man I ever saw." " D'ye reckon I could get 4i job to give him a spell ?" " You can if you bl...
A Stiff Yarn. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
A Stiff Yarn. "Yes," said the landlord of an hotel close to the Melbourne cemetery to our reporter, "it is a bit lonely at night, and the grave yard being so close makes a man feel a bit nervous like." " But you are used to spirits," remarked our reporter-facetiously.. "Yes, and biers tooi,"'eplied'the-landlord; winking at him.. "Anti I'm sure you treat them cordially," said our man, who never liked to be beat at his own business.., "Yes," said the ladidl6rd,&lt; "and never whine. Perhaps you will try: something;" and, after having sampled, three or four new brands of whisky, our reporter. was about to depart when the landlord said "I'll toll you a funny thing that happened about a week or.two ago. You may not believe it. My wife doesn't. She says I. must have dreamed it. But'"I'was ,a wide awake as I am now. I was just about to close the house at twelve o'cldck. It was the' night of the storm, when the rain came down as if there was no hereafter; and I was just closing the ...

Hang the Expense. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
Hang' the Expense. Our slender reporter received an invitation to be present at the Liedertafel concert on Monday, and modestly asked us to lend him our dresscoat, as his was in the care of a rela. tive. Our first idea was to refuse point blank, simply because we knew if we did lend it we should have seen the last of it but, remem, bering our majestic proportions (we weigh seventeen stone), we simply said- " It.won't fit you, my boy; it is too big for you." " Never mind, old bald-head," he remarked with one of his usual enlgaging smiles. " I'll .:ay the-ýtailo6ff& iiV it dovn so t??it i~~will. ,fit. ' Hang the expenise." ... . . ... . " i ':
