MAKING APPLE TREES BEAR EVERY YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

'MAKING APPLE TREES BEAR EVERY YEAR. In-many parts of the country, apple trees yield a crop of fruit only every alternate year, the year represented by an odd number (1879) being barren, while that represented by an even number (180) will be fruitful. In other places orchards bear every year. Some trees will yield fruit only every other year, while others near them, on every side, will produce a bountiful crop. Two seasons are re quired to produce a crop of "apples ; that is, during one season the fruit buds are developed, and, during the next, the fruit. All the vital energies of some trees are employed, during one season, to develop the, fruit buds; then the year following, their- entire vitality seems to' be spent-in developing the fruit, with out suffic:ent force being le'fc.to form fruit buds for: the crop of the next season. Now, in order to induce an apple tree to bear every season, climb into the' top' or go up on ladders, just as one does when plucking the ripe fruit, and w...

My Experiences as an Actor. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

My Experiences as an Actor. My first distinct dramatic experiences dates back to a memorable Easter Monday ever so many years ago, when, in a certain deadly-lively town in the Midlands, I (then a very little boy) saw " Macbeth" and "Robert Macaire" acted by Manley's com pany of players, all of whom became after wards more or less distinguished people. Never shall I forget.,that night, when the green curtain went up and: I saw the weird sisters. I thought-but if I began to re cord what I thought of my first play I shall occupjfall'the space allotted to this article. From that moment I had the Bard on the brain. Soon after, I was sent to a boarding school, where I inoculated my school-fellows with the Shakesperean craze to such an ex tent that when we broke up at Christmas we enacted "Hamlet," and, of course, I was the Prince of Denmark. When I came home for the holidays, I saw the African Roscius play Othello. Then I became "Othello" mad. Next I came across a memoir of the wonder ful...

Agricultural, &c. CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

. C)-OPERATION. Why do not farmers co-operate more generally than they do in their work is a question that some agricultural writers wvho live in cities some times ask. Because co-operation among farmers will prove a success in some cases and a very decided failure in others.. We apprehend that the selfish spirit is too prevalent, even among farmers, ever to allow them to co-operate heartily in any farm undertaking. If three or four agree to buy a land roller, a drill, or a mower together, the chances are that one will worry lest another get the most use of the implement with only an equal investmentt in it. And, besides, allinight want to use the same implement at the same time ; and as this would be impossible, of course complaint would follow, So with all co-operative arrangements relative to tools, stock, wages, &c.; but there are two or three ways in which co operation would be beneficial. For instance, in purchasing for domestic and farm use the more bulky, coarser art...

Whims of Noted Englishmen. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

Whims of 1Noted Englishmen. A list of the foibles of some of our noted-men was published a short time ago, and it is being continually added to by those who wish to hand down to posterity the eccen tricities of genius. Mr. Gladstone's rage for cutting down trees is well known, but he has also a mania for wearing abnormally high collars, which indicate his approach long before his features are discernible. Lord Salisbury is noted for wearing the shabbiest hats of any man in London. His ordinary head-gear is so bad that a metrop. litan cabman would not deign to pick it up. As a set-off to this, Mr. Edward Gibson, his faithful follower, is said to keep one hat ter constantly employed-anyhow, he always appears to have on a new and glossy " stove. pipe." Mr. Chamberlain is a great lover of flowers, and a bit of a dandy to boot. Nine times out of ten he will be seen with an enormous or chid in his button-hole, and when he is minus that he is sporting some other expensive con. servatory fl...

A Live Paper Knife. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

A Live Paper Knife. In the Paoer World is the following story of the way in which an elephant's tusks were used as a paper knife :-An Indian rajahl who was pleasantly disposed toward the English, and had learned their language after a fashion, frequently visited, some years ago, as the story runs, the viceroy of Calcutta, and on one'occasion borrowed of the latter a copy of the Edinburghl Review, which he happened to see lying on the table. When he returned the magazine the viceroy asked him if he had found anything interesting in it. ; "Oh, yes," he replied, "many beautiful things, but also many disconnected articles." " How so?" asked the viceroy. :" See here," answered the rajah. "This begins with 'Hunting the Ourang-ontang,' does it not ? And now turn over the page, and here you have the 'History of Mary Stuart.' " The viceroy laughed. He perceived that the rajah had attempted to read the book through without cutting the leaves. Hie ac cordingly took from his table a beautiful i...

Clever Tricks. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

Clever Tricks. "Yes," said the jeweller, " we are contantly on the watch for thieves. Of course the imperative rule is not to let goods go out of your sight until you get the money. The trick of having goods sent to hotels and boarding-houses with bills for collection is so stale that the undeviating rule is to keep your goods in sight. But a shrewd fellow once managed to get three watches from me by a clever dodge. "A bright, sharp.looking person came iii one day and said: ' I am from Sydney, and have a commisson to buy some goods for my sister, who is about to be married there.' He picked out a bill of about one hundred pounds' worth of various articles and said, 'Just send them around to my shop in Bourke Street at twelve o'clock,' naming a well known establishment. The goods were sent by a clerk, who found the customer ap-~ parentiy engaged in showing carpets, and: perfectly at home. He recognised the clerk, and said: 'Ah I just step this way and I will give you a cheque.' He we...

Smart Practice by a Reporter. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

Smart Practice by a Reporter. ;When the Duke of Wellington was Prime Minister, one of the morning papers gave the programme of a very important Government proceeding about to be adopted. It startled all parties and created an immense sensation ; for the political party had received no infor mation that the Cabinet intended any such: move; nay, the majority of the Cabinet M-inisters themselves were equally in the dark?; and yet the announcement was true. The duke was full of wrath at the premature display of his plans, and equally full of sur prise,,seeing that those plans had not been committed to. The clue to the mystery was, after a time, obtained. The Duke of Wellington was rather deaf: during the later period of his life, and (as is usually the case under such circum stances) adopted a somewhat loud tone in conversation. One evening, after a stirring debate in the House of Lords, the duke walked home arm-in-arm with another peer, a .trusted member of his party, but not a member ...

A Ponderous Slipper. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 March 1885

A Ponderous Slipper.' George has for some time been attentive to a young lady, whom he has noticed on several evenings when he called busily en gaged on a'beautiful piece of embroidery,' which, perhaps accidentally, or perhaps coni paring it with the size of his own foot, he had concluded was one of a pair of slippers that were, no doubt, intended for a present; and George had once or twice allowed hini self to wander into a pleasing shspicion that they were intended for him, although nothing, had really transpired to justif.y such a belief. When quietly seated near his enchantress, watching her taper fingers gracefully toying with the gossamer threads, and eacli'move ment adding a new beauty to the fabric, ihe had more than once allowed himself to ievel in blissful contemplation of the pleasure he would feel at having his tiny feet encased in those lovely sandals, alnd liow, on retiring to his room on cold winter evenings, he could sit in front of a cheerful fire, and hold sweet co...
