TAKING BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
TATKIG BLEES. In taking bees from combs chloroform may be used in various ways. A piece of rag about six inches square may be satu rated with a teaspoonful of chloroforl,placed on a plate and covered with perforated zinc. IRaise the hire and place the plate with its contents on the board, and then close the door for fifteen minutes or less. The bees will fall down on the board helpless and prostrate. The hives should bh removed and the bees exposed to the atmosphere. The shorter the time the bees are under the effects of the chloroform the better is the chance of safe recovery. Though we have used chloroform successfully and without apparent injury to the bees, we do not re commend its use. If your heavy hives have young combs, part of their contents may be removed, but if the combs are two years old the bees should be driven into emlty hives and fed. Sugar made stocks cost liittle and generally do well.--London Journal of IIor ticulture.
A DREADFUL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
The Omeo acorrespondent of the Qrin;i antd MlarrayAdvertiser gives the following particulars ofa dreadful tragedy which has occurred there, by which a widow a named Richardson -had her liousd destroyed by fire,- and two of her children burned to death. A.t the time the:fire took place about eleven o'clockl on Tuesday night the.children, six in nuinbor,were all in bed; the mother not having returned from -her work as charwoman, by which she supports herself and family. The eldest, a girl of fourteeu years, was awakened by the noise of the fire, which had made considerable progress. With great courage and pre sence of mind she managed to get four out of the burning building. On attempting to return for the others, she was beaten back by the flames and much burnt. While this bravoe child was at this work, the youngest child, a boy of about two years of age, had crawled fromu where she had left it, -close to the burning house, where.its clothes caught fire, an.d when it was discovered i...
DURHAM OX. TUESDAY, January 29 [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
DURHAM OX. Irnox'ovo ova oo aitirowars] TUESDAT, January 29 The anjiety to see the newspApers, and the eagerness with which" they are scanned, is indicative of the interest felt in political mrtters at the present janc ture. We who dwell remite from the scene of strife are placed at the disadvan tage of hiving to take. our knowledge of events at secoond hand. and we are puzzled I to form a correct estimate from the diver sity in the reports of the ames event as given by the organs of the different par ties. I stlpose the wisest course is to I take a middle view, and receive the reports on both sidle ' cumr rano selis.' It is re markable that there is such unanimity of oninion in favour of the action of the Governneit.- Conversing freely with people in the district, I have only encoun tered one who condemns their tactics. It is acknowledged that the measures are extreme,-. but .that they are justifiable under the ciroumstances. On one inci dent there has been some difference, viz, th...
HOW TO KEEP BUTTER COOL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
1IOW TO KEEP BUTTER COOL. In families, or where the dairy is small, a good plan to have butter cool and firm without ice, is by the process of evaporation, as practised in India and other warm coun tries. "A cheap plan is to get a very large sized porous earthern flower pot with an extra large saucer. iIalf fill the saucer with water, set it hi a trivet or light stand -such as is used for holding hot irons will do-upon this set your butter; over the whole invert the flower pot, letting the rim of it rest in and be covered by the water; then close the hole in the bottom of the flower-pot, and repeat the process several times a day, or whenever it looks dry. If set in a cool place, or where the wind can blow oni it, it will rapidly evaporate the water from thepotand the butter will be as firm arid cool as if from iui ice-house.

What Editors were Made For. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 1 February 1878
What Editors were Made For.-And now ve discover the object of 'Proidence in the creation of editors. Ido not deny(for I can afford to credit all inen with what, ye longs to them, and am not compelled to steal) tat I ain not i_ little indebted to Dean Swift, who gives as one of the reasons for not ab1ioliih- ;Chist?i?inity ? and the establishinent in England the fact that it provided a class of men (the clergy) whom everybody could feel at liberty to in sult with entire impunity, knowing that there professional character prieeluded them from resorting to the violent measures that a layman would einploy.

But I can write a letter and blow up the editor._ If he has said or allowed to be said, anything I don't like, or any...

The Times, in a leading article, says : "The announcement that tlhe Sultan has in vited Her Majesty's Government to ap proach the Czar with a view of bringing about negotiations for peace, will tend to calm some fears which have been exciting the country, and to hold out a hope that the dreadful war may be brought to a close more quickly than by the shock of battle. The Sultan has taken the only course con sistent with a calm review of what the war has already done, and what it must do if it should last much longer. His circular to the powers showed that the peace party at Constantinople had for a time got the up per hand. It proposed terms whichwouldno doubt have been inadmissable in any event before the war, and which would not bear discussion aftertho terrible battles of the last six months, but the Porto did not in tend the cir...
