As, the Black Orpington is without doubt the most popular dual purpose fowl in Australia, besides holding the world's record for the greatest num ber of eggs laid by n individual hen In 12 months, viz., 345, it may be of interest to some of our readers to learn how this composite breed, as it Is called, originated. With a view to producing a fowl that would be one colour, a good one at that—black—that would also be capable of laying a number of egg3 as well as being an excellent table bird, Wm; Cook mated some red: ear lobed black Minorca hens, which were then recognised as splendid layers, with a black Plymouth Hock cock, the latter being a aport from the common black an...

Marmont.] He sits upon a candle box, his old pipe well aglow, When shadows lengthen Eastward, and the sun is dipping low; He smokes and thinks, and Memory goes back with flowing tide, And many a tale he tells me when he lays his pipe aside. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; No rabbits, nor wire-netting when he settled in the Scrub,— No "Rural Workers' Wages," — it was "Work, and earn your Grub!" But there were good old friends and neighbors, Tillers of the Earth, Who gave a helping hand, and didn't ask what it was worth! &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; He speaks of early struggles, when the Drought filled earth and sky, When cattle, starved to horns and hide, had only strength to die; And how, from scorched-up timber country, oftentimes there came The roar of Fiery Demons, with their licking tongues of flame. &nbsp; &nbsp...

Commercial. Schute, Ball & Co., Ltd., Wool and Produce Brokers, Sydney, report: Watchman, what of the night? Clouds looming on the horizon, every indication of a stormy day, and look out for squalls! At least that is what an inquiring grower would probably be toid if he happened to address his query to day to a woolbuyer instead of tt> a wool broker, the latter of course being maiuly responsible for the present confused state of the wool market, and, therefore, for the time being rather under a cloud. Not a bit of it. There is corn still in Egypt, and the outlook is by 110 means as void of comfort as the hard hit pessi mist would helve us believe. Heavy losses in some directions are unfor tunately inevitable. The wool grower is too apt only to take interest in the market as it immediately effects his own £.3,(1., but the aggregate loss that has to be faced by manufactur ers and buyers already runs into mill ions, and the ramifications of such I losses necessarily operate ...

Rosa, Univer sity of California, that in districts Where two crops of potatoes were grown in one season the sprouting of the seed for the second planting could be hastened by cutting the seed ond immersing it for thirty to sixty minutes in a solution of nitrate of soda made up at the rate of 3J-lb. of the fertiliser to 10-gal. of .water. In both the tests the treatment had a rotting effect upon a large propor tion of the potatoes. At the Hawkes bury College 75 per cent, of the treated seed developed a salmon-col ored fungal growth (Verticillium sp.), which in some instances covered more than half of the potatoes. The eyes of the treated sets commenced to de velop ...
