Grapes Affected with Blackrot. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
Grapes Aflecte? with Blackrot. Blackrot is one of the new vine diseases which have spread through Europe and America daring tihe last fe" years. Alivid brown spot upon one side of the grape is generally the first manifestation of the disease in question. This spot increases in size until the entire berry is of a uniGifm brown colour, imparting the aippearance of rottenne?s i although tihe fill! cltoul, and nearly the original tirnulnss are re tailed. As soon as this clhange has taken place, and often before its conm pletion, the part first affected assumes] a darker shalde, and minute, black pil?ples or postulcs, snialler than lhe Ihead of a pin, yet easily scen with the naked eye, roligihen t111 srface. At the same point the berry now begins to( lose its fulnoss, an irreglular depressioni appearn whici extcnds quickly into general withering of the beor,\- thel pimples mieanlwhile having nlltitpliedi so rapidly as to cover the entire surface.

IN THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
IN THE PAST. And our fancy fondly linger'd in that past our soul everees, When man's life was nurs'd by nature in patri arehal years When the field, the forge, the study, claim'd no life-exhausting toil, And the sons of men liv'd simply, from the kindly nature soil; Growing here a grove of date-palmn , gannering there a little grain, Faring frugal, sleeping soundly, living lives that laugh'd at pain. Strong and nactice, tough nnd tireless, open hearted, kindly-soul'd, Such as poets lov'd to picture in the far-off age of gold When the rainbow-pinioned seraphs found a lower heaven on earth, As they liv'd and lov'd euraptur'd with the brides of moral birth.
The Colony System. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
The Colony System. -o The colony system will be a prominent feature in the development of a higher knowlcdge of land culture, andi the growth of the most important cultural industries. It will also be the leading feature in tending to a more equal disposal and owncrship individually of the land. Thcn, again, those desiring available spots to make homes will find they are not invited to live in unsettled districts, cut off from all society and comforts of civilisation, where seclusion and isolation prevail. The colony system will be the means of bringing together education and refinement to the permanent settle ment of wealth and culture. If health be the object sought for, rest, pure air, invigorating climate, combined with per feet freedom, surroundcd by features of attractive interest, must prove magnetic to the thinking and observant man. It means the retirement and charm of rural vith the available society, advantages, and interchange of city life. The com munion of minds of a h...
USEFUL RECIPES. POT-ROASTING A ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
USEFUL IECIPES. (Br Q.) MOT-ROASTiNG A ROUND. Writers pon lhousekeeping fre quently mention the pot-roast as a good Imethlod of disposing of the round of beef, but not all of our readers, per haps, know how this is made. The following are the directions to iprepare and cook it :-Take a round of beef fresh, firm, and sweet, and sprinkle salt and pepper on it, after whllich roll it up and wind enough twine or coarse thread around it to keep it in shape. Plut a lmp of butter or beef fat in a hot stewpan with one or two sliced onions. When the onions turn brown put ill the meat, and turn from side to side until it has changed colour, then pour on enough cold water to cover but not to drown. When the water boils add a little hot water, and thicken and season the gravy to taste. If put on to cook soon after breakfast it will melt in your month lw dinner time. lere are a few recipes that miay prove worthy of trial : BEEF HOLLS. Beef rolls are strips of tender round steak with a stmall piec...

"Take-all" in Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 26 May 1888
"Take-all" in Jlh7eat. -0 At the instance of the secretary for Agriculture Messrs T. K. Dow, Robt Dodd, and A. 3MNaughton in December, 1887, visited Korong-vale to report on an outbreak of blight in the wheat crops growing there. The disease had been observed in the district for several years, and during the past season had spread over a much larger extent than before. The history of the affected crops was that they had been sown upon new soil. They had progressed fairly until the wheat was out in car, when the plants began to fade, until ultimately they withered and decayed, leaving the soil quite bare. Dressings of bone dust ap peared only to increase the disease. On examination the subsoil was found to consist of a mixture of granitic sand and clay. The opinion of the three experts mentioned is that the disease was most probably "Take-all," which had been caused by the deficiency of some neces sary elements of fertility in the soil. The samples of wheat affectetd were subsequentl...

The Chinese Question. ·-4--- At a meeting of the Executive Coun cil held at the Treasury, Melbourne, on Saturday afternoon, a set of regulations restricting the entrance of Chinese to the colony was drawn up and agreed to. A special supplement of the Govern ment Gazette published that evening gives the regulations at length.
