PROFITABLE TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 January 1891

PROFITABLE TUBES. ?'- ? ^ ? A number of trees are successfully grown in this district, the value jof ; which seem hot to be appreciated. It is probably on account of our want of railway communication , that they have not been turned to good account. A few jof these are the following .- — THE WALNUT. In California 'the walnut tree is largely grown aixid the xmts exported. : There are two varifeties of walnuts iii California — the so-called soft-ishelled nut, and the hard shell. But, as it is very apparent that the difference only existB in the thickness of the shell, no special mention need be made of the soft shell here. With regard to the profits from the English walnut, Mr Heath, who is considered an authority on orchards, says, ' There is nothing which yields as certain a crop as the English walnut. There is no odd year. There is no off year. You can hold your price better, and the money will flow year by year, as every orchardist who has his orchard in a good place will tell you...

WILLIAM SYMINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 9 January 1891

Willi AM SYMINGTON. The following article taken from the English journal devoted to engi neering, by thd u Argus,' will liave a certain amount of interest for this district, when it is known that the in ventorof -steam navigation is grand father to Mr. Jas. Symington of Yackandandah : — „ It wi.ll. probably always be a dis puted point as to who was the trae inventor of steamboat propulsion, and the verdict will ever be more or less swayed by national prejudices. Ap parently Papin has the best claim ' o priority in this matter, though as his boat was wrecked by some infuriated watermen- who, ' in quite the new unionist spirit, objected to any com- x petition from outsiders, our informa tion as to the details of this boat is very incomplete. Jonathan Hulls, an Englishman, was the next to tackle the problem, and in 1736 invented a stern- wheel boat driven by a New coinen engine. The Americans long based their claims to the invention of Fulton, . but have latterly seen that this content...

WAIFS AND STRAYS. 1 The grasshoppers did very damage in this district, except. perS hapa in curtailing the supply of arrassS for stock.

Mining Nitggets. ? — :0: — ? : The Staghorn machinery of the Yackandandah Sluicing Company has gone wrong, the pump having such a serious break as to necessitate the procuring of a new one. We un derstand that most of the men have been given a three weeks' holiday in consequence. The cause of the break age is unknown, nor can any conjec ture be given in connection therewith. Wilson and Party'of the Nine Mile Reserve, have completed the crushing of 9|r tons, the total yield amounting o a little over 50 oz, or upwards of 5 oz gold to the ton. - The pyrites is supposed to centain an additional 15 oz gold, which will make the yield nearly 7 oz to the ton. This is the best yield that has been obtained from any large quantity of stone in that dis trict for years past. The reef is said to continue to look very well.

Strychnine Remedy. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 17 January 1891

Strychnine _RenzeAy. In our last issue we reported a case of successful treatment of shake-bite at Seymour, Dr. Mueller's strychnine remedy being applied by Dr. Ray. The case has excited considerable interest in that district,' owing to the severity of the bite, and the low con dition of the patient at times. Dr. Mueller has received a letter from Dr R.ay,/of-Seymour, in connec tion with this case. He congratu lates Dr Mueller on the success of his mode of treatment of snake-bite, and expresses his thanks for conferring such a booh on the medical -profes- sion as well as mankind in general. He remarked that that was a very snaky distiict, and there had not been a season during his nine years' resi dence in the district without a case of snak e-bite, and generally two or' three. With reference to the total amount of strychnine given in this case, it reached 280 minims of Dr. Muelleir's solution before toxic efEects . appeared. Of this 175m. were in-, jected and 105m-.- taken internal...

The Opening Day of the local Rifle Club that was to have been, on Friday, was unfortunately marred by wet weather ; in fact, so persistently did it rain all day that the shooting had to be postponed. However, the arrangements for the concert and ball having been made, and a large number of tickets sold, a postpone ment thereof could not very well be made, and it was decided to hold it wet or dry. About six o'clock in the evening the weather broke and showed signs of clearing, and no further showers fell. Despite the unfavorable day the concert was very well -attended, and quite exceeded the expectations of the committee, who were by no means hop.ef ul as to funds being raised thereby. However, after paying expenses it is expected there will be a ere disbalance of £4. The programme was one of excellence, and hadafineday prevailed the hall would no doubt have been crowded.
