TREATMENT OF BADLY-TRAINED APRICOT-TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 19 October 1901
TREiTHEHT OF BADLY-TRAIHED APRICOT-TREES. In answer to several correspondents who have a few apricot-trees that have become straggling and unproductive, Mr. W. J. Allen, fruit expert, says : Generally speaking old apricot trees which have been neglected require to have their tops cut well back, all dead wood removed, and their branches thinned out by cutting off those which are growing in too close proximity to each other. What we require is to distribute the branches evenly through the crown of the tree, and compel the branches to bear fruit at their bases as well as at the extreme points. Peach-trees should also be cut back each year, and at least one-half of the new growth removed, leaving the bearing wood as close to the main branches as possible, and distributing it evenly through the trees ? 'Agri- cultural Gazette.' 1 What shall we name her ?' said Mrs. Darley, as she gazed fondly at her firstborn. 'We'll name her Yorick,' replied Mr. Darley. ' Yorick ?' echoed his wife. ' Wh...

CRIMINALS WITH REFINED MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 19 October 1901
CRIMINALS WITH REFINED MANNERS. The average criminal, the man who commits burglaries and thefts more or less systematically, possesses a safe guard to the public against violent crime that would seem at first blush to be exactly the reverse — a violent temper. His very life and the conditions that govern it, make him prone to outbursts of spleen, just as the rattle of the rattlesnake betrays an otherwise noiseless and deadly enemy. But when the criminal has so schooled himself that outwardly he is an ordinary, quiet, refined man oi the world, when he never allows his feel ings to get the better of him, then it is that he becomes a deadly menace to society, and can snap his fingers in the face of the police, used as these are to the outbursts that some time or another must betray the ordinary criminal. Such a man was Joseph Lemettre, a French criminal of extraordinary power in his dreadful profession. In seven years, this man committed a series of crimes of unparalleled wickedness, a...

A BLACK DRAUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 19 October 1901
A BLACK DRAUGHT. Except to those who have resided in India, it may not be known that the majority of assistant-surgeons in the Indian Medical Service are Eurasians or half-castes, who, however, are ex tremely sensitive to any allusion being made to their colour. At the base hospital at Rawal Pindi there was one poor fellow of the Nor folk Regiment who had his thigh shot through during the Dargai engage ment, and who had to undergo a very severe and serious operation in con sequence, which left him very weak and also exceedingly irritable. One morning the assistant-surgeon who, by the way, was as black as a crow, came to dress the injured thigh, and, being , in a hurry, was perhaps nob as careful as he ought to have been over the operation. The patient groaned and grumbled freely at the pain be was suffering. 'For goodness sake don't grouse (Tommy Atkins's synonym for grumb bling), man,' said the impatient apothecary ; ' how were you' brought up, by hand or by bottle ?' he con tinued...
THE SPEED OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 19 October 1901
THE SPEED OF BIRDS. If you consult the usually accepted authorities on the speed of birds in their flight, you are likely to be misled by an exaggeration of from one hun dred to three per cent. This is because figures have been given on hearsay, appearance, and very superficial observation. But re cently English and French observers have been comparing notes, and are practically agreed, after most careful calculation, on tho speed of the best known birds. They started with the carrier pigeon and have made him a base of com parison. He has heretofore been credited with one hundred and ten miles an hour, but it is now agreed that he is entitled to fifty. A quite recent long-distance, carefully con ducted test of five hundred and ninety miles, from the Shetland Islands to London, showed that the most rapid pigeons made thirty-seven miles an hour.Y On shorter distances none have made more than fifty miles. The swallow, that is indeed a rapid flyer, has been credited with one hun dred an...
THE TURN OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 19 October 1901
THE TURK OF LIFE. . Between the ages of forty-five and sixty, a man who has properly regu lated himself may be considered in the prime of life. His matured strength of constitution renders him almost impervious to an attack of disease, and experience has given him soundness to his judgment. His mind is resolute, firm, and equal'; all his functions are in the highest order; he assumes mastery over his business ; builds up a competence on the found ation he has laid in early manhood, and passes through a period of life attended by many gratifications. Having gone over a year or two past sixty, he arrives at a standstill. But athwart this is the viaduct called the . turn of life. The system and powers having reached the utmosb expansion, now begin either to close like a flower at sunset, or break down at once. One injudicious stimulant, a single fatal excitement, may force it beyond its strength, while a careful supply of props and the withdrawal of all that , tends to force a plant su...

The Passing Show. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 22 October 1901
Tho Passing Show. The debate on the financial proposals of thn Federal Government is still dragging its weary length along in the House of Representatives, And from all appearances is not likely to close for some days. The metropolitan free trade journals se.em to have come to the oono'usion that there is no hope for Mr. Reid's motion of oensure, and they are already pointing out tho desir ability of an appeal being made to the people of .tho country n spooling the tuiff. It is pointed out that the Premier's reply to the Leader of the Opposition cannot bo considered con vincing. The ' Herald ' says it is not enough to say that the people returned Mr. Barton and his colleagues to carry out the policy outlined in the Maitland speech, and it is not enough for the Minister for Trade and Customs to say that he has a counted majority of pro tectioniata hnhind him especially when his premier is insisting that the tariff is primarily one for revenue raisinsr. The present state of parlies in...
Carnegie's Secret. [Newspaper Article] — Moree Gwydir Examiner and General Advertiser — 22 October 1901
Carnegie's Secret. Carnegie is fond of tolling how he was once asked by the. editor of a popular nuigozine for an article on ' Organisation in Business,' ' Well.' said he, ' I think T could write that article. But I'm afraid the price I'd have to ask you would be too liiih.' ' Oh. no,' said the delighted editor, with a vision of a magnificent ' feature ' in nn early number : ' I'm sure wi! could arrange that satisfac torily. Zv'umo your own figure.' ' Well,' replied Mr. Carnegie, ' I could hardly afiord to do it lor less than five million dollars.' He smiled a little at sight of the editor's face, and then went on : ' No, I must withdraw that. What I should put into it has coat mo much more, than that, and, of course, you would not expect me to soil it to you at less than cost.' As the diplomatist puts it, ' the negotiations foil through.'
