' St. Peter. — ' The shade of an umpire arrived hero in seotions this morninc.' ? - Darwin used . to go. into the Zoological Gardens in London, and, standing by the glass cane containing the cobra dl capello, put his forehead against the glass while the cobra struck out at him. The glass was 'between' them ; Darwin's mind was porl'ectly convinced as to tho inability of the snake to harm him, yet ho would always dodge. Time after time he tried it, his will and reason keeping him there, his instinct making him dodge. Tho instinct was stronger than both will and reason. Roberts the elder was in the habit of carry ing an umbrella, fitted with a cue tip under the ferrule. On one occasion he was spending a quiet holiday at Brighton, and came across a young swell, who was the champion billiardist of the watering place, and who was eager for a game. 'I hear you are the be...

THE OAULFIELD GOLF LINKS. The national gamo of Scotland has been until within recent years almost ontircly confined to its native 'land, but now its popularity- is rapidly increasing and extending, bo that at tho present day there aro more golfing clubs south than north of tho Tweed.' ? It is somewhat sur prising that here in 'Viotoria, where thorc are , so many loyal ScmcDinen, tho game has not boon received with more favor, for although the ' ' climate and nature of the ground aro admirably suited to it, yet it in only within the , last six weeks that ;the game.1, has - been ? established on what promises to be a firm - and -' substantial basis.1 By the efforts of a few gentlemen who are ,. old .'^enthusiasts in tho game tho Melbourne -Golfing Club has boon formod, with Sir Jas.

HOOVER POTATO SORTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891
HOOVER POTATO SORTER. The Hoover potato sorter is a machine much used by potato growers in America. It has also been introduced and successfully tried in New Zealand. With this machine, which weighs less than 100 lb., two men- and a boy can sort and put in the waggon from 80 to 100 bushels an hour.. It can be operated- by one person, if necessary. The potatoes pass from the hopper into: the cylinder, which should be turned very slowly by .a lazy boy. Have him pick out the decayed or scabby potatoes as they pass through the iiopper, otherwise he will want to go to 'sleep. If the potatoes need sprouting, raise the. ' lower end of the machine or turn the cylinder half way over and then -back, or both. The small potatoes, dirt, straw, &c, will fall under the sorter into the basket, while the merchant able ones* will be delivered into baskets as shown. It is made by the Hoover Implement Company, Avery, Ohio. ;
AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891
, , The weather has been of an unsettled character during the past month, a good deal of - rain has fallen, and the temperature has been ^generally, low, though there has not been much frost anywhere. In the neighborhood of the .'. Dividing Range and in other mountain districts : very, heavy rains were experienced in the begin ning, of the month, causing floods in many of the creeks and rivers' descending' from them. The soil was brought into a very wet state, and, combined with the low temperature, the crops, except on well drained land, have suffered to a serious extent, especially on low lying grounds whioh were water-logged for several days, where the crops suffered severely. The roads were also greatly out up, so that farmers find it difficult to cart their chaff to market, whioh is, in conse quence, rather scarce in the metropolis. In parts of the North-western district drought was complained of, but tlie crops do not appear to have suffered muoh in consequence, while in other...

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891
OUBNEW ZEALAND LETTER.. ? So far very little business has been done in t Parliament. ' Those who predicted that a smaller House would reduce the amount of talking have been wofully . deceived, for., the. , present , House, though one-and-twenty short of its ? previous number, is far. more talkative than any of Its predecessors ; and so impressed have the Govern* ment become with the abnormal Blownew of the despatch of business, that, they have bean- obliged to take away the two days -per week devoted to the. airing of private members' fads.

Chapter III. ? Ruth lived, as she had told Raymond Hamil ton,- with her cousin, Miss Morpeth, the only relative known to her in the world. Years ago Miss Morpeth had come out from England, where all the tragedy, if tragedy there had been, at any rate all that, made life for her, had been enacted. ? ' '.?'?:?' ','??'

ONLY AN ACQUAINTANCE. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891
ONLY AN ACQUAINTANCE. By B.F.T.G. Chapter I. The time of year was early November— thit advanced stage of spring when the country lanes and slopes of Tasmania, are loveliest with the blossoms of the hawthorn— when the air is sweetest with the soent of the wild briar roses. The afternoon was full of warm subdued light ; the sky was a faint blue ; the white clouds were beginning now slowly to turn to gold as the sun drew nearer the mountain range. All the land about was covered with grass and clover— thick and sweot from yesterday's rain ; and the gum trees were bright with the red and yellow^tints of their spring-time foliage. Down in a little hollow, near the river, the magpies were getting ready for their even song— a dear swift note from some bird still on the wing, and then sudden silence. In the distance were the outlines of a big red house-— from its clustering chimneys blue smoke' was rising into the air.' ?-?- ' ?; .-.- In a field uncultivated, but luxuriant with grass, a girl...

THE WORLD'S FAIR. A GREAT INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION. Less than two years hence Chicago will be the &nbsp; scene of an exhibition of art and commerce, &nbsp; which in magnitude, novelty and richness of variety will, if the plans of its promoters be realised, prove superior to any of the past great &nbsp; shows of the world. International in cha- racter, comprising not merely "Yankee &nbsp; &nbsp; notions" in their latest development, and the &nbsp; &nbsp; products of a country remarkable in itself for the diversity of its industries, but much that will be illustrative of the progress and the resources of older nations, the Chicago exhibition of 1893 should be an attraction, and it may also be said an education, to sight-seers from all quarters of the globe. To the Australian colonies, which have on various past occasions shown themselves ready to improve their relations with the American states, and benefit by their example, the ...
SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 September 1891
11113111 The Australian colonies may be congratulated on the promise of brighter hopes. The evil results of the land boom are still manifesting themselves in the collapse of some minor finan cial institutions, which have discovered that banking cannot be conduoted on the principle of unredeemable assota, but the losses, though . the occasion of individual suffering, are not of serious moment. Overbalancing this cause of' gloom is the impetus given to industrial enterprise by the satisfactory settlement of the labor complications whioh threatened to dis turb the progtess of the great pastoral industry. When once brought together at ttio council table, employ eis and employed found it possible, to arrange a modus Vivendi. Conciliation smoothed away the difficulties caused by irri tated feelings, and- the work of ? shear ing is now being proceeded with under an agreement to whioh both . sides have given their consent. This result is taken as a favorable augury of the possibility of goo...
