-Wasted Vitality RESTORED TO Robust Health. The OA of Mr, . IINANOlI (a' o-va aaronTss). From faded letters and dimly-rememlbee talk of those who once clang fondly to the legends and traditions of old, only a very hazy outline of events can generally be - obtained, so for present requirements it is advisable to get our information as oppor. tunity affords. This object led to a re. porter's visit to Mr. ~ichard Shannon, of Goganjo, St. James'-road, Waverley, once a resident of Balmain, reference to which fact appears below. "When I was living in Birchgrove-road, Balmain," said Mr. Shannon, " I had ah ex. perience which I cloan refer to very feelingly. It is in relation to my health, which gave me considerable trouble and anxiety. I could not enjoy anything, so you may guess I was in a bad way. I felt thoroughly knooked out, having no energy in my body to do any work, and looking upon al ,matters which came under my notice as being too troublesome to be thought of. The wretched feelin...

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 March 1904
The Weather. THE autumn season is on the.verge of draw ing to a close, and the first taste of winter is being experienced. Winter has approached again without that heavy fall of rain essen tial to the assurance of a good season. The district has dried up wonderfully during the last few weeks, and pastoralists entertain grave fears of a shortage of grass, which is imminent if a fair fall be not recorded dur ing the coming month. Last Saturday after noon steady rain set in, and continued inter mittently throughout the evening ; only 26 points were registered in Queanbeyan, though in other parts of thu distriet the fall was much heavier, while in many parts not a drop fell. Towards Williamnsdle the fall was the heaviest, between which place and Michelago, we hear, brush fencing was washed away. The Queanboeyn river was caused to rise and is now flowing over the weir wall.

Garden and Field Calendar for March. 1904 [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 March 1904
Garden and Flcld Calendar for' March. 1904 - . (By A. Lanzsdowne, Seedsman, Goulbumr.) THo heavy rains during themonth have mis sed us greatly; still deep,thorough cultivation will at times greately assist growth during a 'dry- period. We again urge sowing in drills, and adding some suitable fertilizer. The expense in,every way is, less than in; broadcast sowing. All crops to provide winter feed should be sown at once. Cape Barley, rape, and rye are the best to witbi stand severe weather, and rape is excellent for a cheap, yet effective green, manure. Lucerne for a lasting crop must not be neg. lected. Prospects are for a continuance of the pecular weather we have lately had, Some good rainfalls, fogs, and cool se." breezes. Hot at times, but early froste likely* Kitchen Garden.-Sow Queen onion, rabi bage of certain k;nds, turnips of all kinds, ceeks, spinach, lettu3e, kohl rabbi, radish bress parsely, and a few canliflower and Iroccoli.
