MELON CULTURE IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881
MELON CULTURE IN AMERICA. Missouri boasts of possessing one of the largest and most productive melon patches in the United States. It is situated on the borders of Scott and Mississippi counties, and equals if it does not exceed is size and adaptation of soil and climate the famous melon patches of Georgia, Indiana, and the eastern shore of Maryland. The St. Louis Sepvblicen describes it as a tract of sandy prairie, four miles wide and ten miles long, with a thin, warm soil, just adapted to the cultivation of the melon, and such melons as are raised nowhere else in that region. There is much richer and deeper soil all around there, but it is not adapted to melon culture. This land Is capable of producing 1,000 melons to the acre. At a place called Diehlstadt, in Scott County, there wete shipped the past season 439 car loads of 1,000 to the car, and Bertrand, in Mis sissippi County, shipped 180 car loads, mostly to Chicago.

NOTES FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881
NOTES FROM THE ENGLISH PAPERS. The Garden issues for February 19 and February 26 respectively contain plates of two varieties of Clethra, known as Nocth American Alders. The Clethras are ex tremely handsome flowering plants, but valuable only where a cool and moist posi tion is available. With the Rhododendron and Azalea they would grow to perfection. Delphinium caxdinale is the subject of the other plate. ' It is perfectly distinct from D. nudicaule, to which it is closely allied, being a taller plant, in which feature it agrees with the variety elatius. It differs, however, from all the forms of D. nudicaule in the shape and color of its flower, which is more open and rather larger, of a brighter scarlet with a decided yellow centre, The foliage is also larger and more deeply cleft, usually nearly to the base. As affording an easy means of identifying this species in its very earliest stages of growth, it may also be stated that when germinating the seed invariably produces distin...

GREECE AND TURKEY. London, April 16. Great dissatisfaction exists in Athens, and throughout Greece, at the result of ' the recent conference respecting the line of frontier between Greece and Turkey.

STORIES OF ART AND ARTISTS. CALLIMACHUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881
STOETES OF AJRT AND ARTISTS. [By C. E. Clement.] cvL-LrvTACirrrs. There are many of tbe ancient artists of -whom very little is known, but that little is so interesting that it ie well worth the tell ing'. Such a one is Callimacaus, who is f aid to have invented the Corinthian capital, 'which is so beautiful in architecture. The time -when Callimachus lived cannot be given more nearly than by saying that it must have been between 550 and 396 B.C. The story runs that a young girl died at Corinth, and her rraree, following1 the usual custom, placed on her grave a basket which contained the food that the girl had liked beBt. It happened that the basket was placed upon an acanthus, and the leaves of the plant grew up around the basket, and wtre so graceful, thus holding it in their midst, that Callimachas, who saw it, U3ed t as & design for the capitals of pillars, and the name of Corinthian was given to it. It IB also said, by some ancient writers, that Callimachus invented a l...

Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881
€xkht A Norwood twelve, consisting of about equal numbers of members of the first and seoond '-elevens tried conclusions with an Auburn fifteen on the oval on Saturday, April 16. As may be supposed, there was not a great deal of interest attaching to the game, and the few persons wlio did assemble on the ground if at all expectant must have been wofully disap pointed with the miserable display made by tbe contending teams. The oouatry team were first at the wickets, and were disposed of in summary fashion for the very small total of 33, of which two players put on SO between them. Bichards and Waldron's trundling was apparently too mmoh for the AnbarnUes, who formed, as remarked by a by stander, an almost uninterrupted moomfal pro* cession between the wickets and tbe pavilion. The Korwoods commenced very badly, having lost four wicbete for 1J, when Waldron and Morcom got together and slightly altered the aspect of affairs. The average per wicket gradually improved, and the innings c...
