DAIRY FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
DAIRY FARMING. A lecture on dairy farming was recently delivered at Milton, New Seuth Wales, by Mr. C. E. Crommelin. Tho lecture treated of milk and its manufacture into butter, and the object of its delivery was to pro mote the establishment of butter factories in the district. As the remarks of the lecturer contain some valuable hints wa make the following extracts: — A dairy should be entirely out of the way of smells and gaseB arising from the decomposition of manure, since milk ab sorbs these with, great facility. Abundance of pure water is also a requisite ; cows should not have to travel far to slake their thirst, for, when a supply of food has been taken, they like to drink, lie down, aud quietly convert their food into milk. Milk cannot be made without water, and when it is secreted largely, a large amount of water is absolutely required. One authority as serts that cows that only drank 27 quarts of water per day only gave six to eight quarts of milk per day, while those th...

FUNERAL OF LORD BEACONS FIELD. London, April 26. The funeral of the Earl of Beaconsfield took place at Hughenden to-day, to which place his remains were con veyed a day or two ago. Although the wishes of the deceased Earl that the ceremony should be canducted . with extreme simplicity were as far as possible carefully and strictly respected, yet so many persons of' all classes of society desired to pay the last tribute of respect, that the attendance at the funeral was immense numbering many thousands of persons from all parts of the country. The Prince of Wales, the Duke of Connaught, and Prince Leopold attended in person the procession from the Manor House to the vault. There were also present the . - Marquis of Salisbury and all the leading members of the Conservative party, com prising almost all those who had held office in Lord Beaconsfield's late ad ministration.

HjOrwIt^ USEFUL GLEANINGS. Eggs fob Wottjeb Ube — To two and a half gallons of soft water add 2 lbs. of salt and 2 ozs. of saltpetre. Boil 15 minutes, and when almost cold stir in four table spoonfuls of quicklime. Let stand two or three days, then pack the eggs, small end down, into a stone jar and cover with the mixture. Keep where it is cool, and do not move the jar. A Duet Bath fob Fowls. — In an article upon this subject the Poultry World makes the following pertinent remarks : — ' Some sensible aud humane farmers, willing to supply every want and render their stock eontented and at their ease, furnish in the midst of their cattleyards posts set in the ground for the creatures to rub against, to allay the itching sensation which occurs from various causes. Even when lice do sot abound, a quadruped or a bird may be very uncomfortable if not permitted to nee claw or hoof, horn or bill, to scratch a particular spot at a par ticular time.

Horticulture. GARDENING HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
Woxiknlinxt* GARDENING HINTS. The violent winds and rain which passed over us hist week have left their mark behind in unsheltered places. Soft-growing plants and shrubs and trees with young wood on them now look as though they had been syringed with scalding water.' Scarcely a leaf is left on them on the windy tide, and the rew that are left are crisp and brown. Mildew has appeared on the Koges, and the black fly is clustered in thousands round the flower buds of Tecoma velutina, Jochroma tubulosa and grandiflora, and many other flowering shrubs, Poinciana Gilliesii being very badly infected. The only thing that can be done for plants whose leaves ure destroyed is to clean them and cut off the young points a little below where they have caught the storm severely. Every means should be used to prevent a recurrence of a simUar state of things, especially where some valu able plants are in danger. It is a very unpleasant task to have to protect plants in the ornamental garden with can...
SEIZURE OF A STOLEN STEAMER. Melbourne, April 27. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
SEIZURE OF A STOLEN STEAMER. [From ouz own Correspondent! Melbourne, April 27. The Commissioner of Customs seized last night a steamer called the India, as proofs bad been discovered that she was the . eteamer Ferret, stolen in October last from the Clyde. A paragraph from a home paper, giving a description of the vessel, excited suspicion in the mind of Constable McKenzie at Qneeus cliff, and he reported the matter. From enquiries it was found that the crew of the vessel were not allowed to go ashore, and tbe fires were kept burning bo as to leave at fifteen minnteB notice. It also appeared that she had been offered for sale privately at £10,000. When she was seized and examined the number of the Ferret was found battered in with the num. ber of the India covering it, bnt which bears no record in Lloyd's Begister. In tbe bell the name had been filed out, and also in tbe capstan. A sailor's discharge nota bearing tbe name of the Ferret was also found. Bhe arrived in the bay on April...

GARDENING NOTES. The plate representing Clematis coccinea, which appears in the Gardtn for March 13, depicts a plant -with which a horticulturist could not fail to be delighted.
