SELECTING ROSES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
SEL-ECTHStf UOSfiS. I r»ntlcng since a French journal enume rated 5,000 species and varieties of Jiasea that were to lie found in the catalogues of growers, public and private, duca au enormous nuiaber as this is unreasonable to work up, and quite as unreasonable to main tain at least under name. Even amoaj good Eoses growers have a puzzle to wead them down to within a reasonable limit, say 150 varieties. A method ut selecting Koees has been carried on in the hoan gardening papers, also in some of tha American papers, and the result is that a great many varieties will be dis carded as useless, some will be retained for further trial only, and others by means of these selections have been raised to posi tions they were never supposed to be worthy to fill, while such grand Hoses as Gloire de Dijon, I-a France, and Souvenir de la MaLmaiaon have been placed, deservedly, in the queenly ranks of the queen of flowers. One thing very noticeable in the selections that have taken place is the...

Wit and Humor. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
WA Ktrir ffwKijr* What would be a good song for the maimed ? — 'Then jou'll re-member me.' Thomas Quart is an Indian. His family is just a gallon- himself, bis wife, a bod, and a daughter. Of course Jen see the p'int. A Boston musioal critic lately remarked of a professional's organ playinf, that he not only could Handel Baoh, but actually Beethoven. At an old inn in Suffolk the landlord has a sign posted up outside his door, ' Good beer for tale here, but don't take mj word for it.' An old lady in New Scotland, hsaring some body say that the mails were irregular, said, ' It was juet E9 in my young days— no trusting any of 'em.' A North Carolina woman stabbed the man who attempted to hug her. This proves that all women are not enthusiastically in favor of a free press. 'Pcnr fellow! he died iu poverty,' said s man of a person lately deo*a»ed. 'That isn't an j thing!' exclaimed a seedy bystander. '* D} iig in poverty is no hardship ; it's living in poverty that puts the thumbscrew on...
The little Folks. THE TOMB OF MAUSOLUS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881
%\t little Jfrlta, [ STORIES OF ART AND ARTISK. [By O. E. Clement.] THE TOMB OF MATJSOLT7S. The ancient historians tell us of the 'Seven Wonders of the World,' and name them as the Pyramids of Egypt, the Hang ing-Gardens of Semiramis ac Babylon, the Temple of Diana at Ephesus, the Statue of Ju-DiteT bv Phidias, the To-nb of Mausolus at Halicarnassus, the Colossus at Rhodes, and the Pharos, or Light-houee of Alexan dria. Of these seven wonders of ancient times, one, the statue of Jupiter, waa the product of sculpture alone, while all the others were the result of a combination of architecture as a fine art, and architecture as a useful art, with th6 arts of ornament, and what may he termed scientific art ; thus they all come within the scope of stories of art and artists. The works of Phidias have already been spoken of ; we will now Epeak of the tomb of Mausolus. He was the King of Caria, of which country Hali cernasEus was the chief city, and the place where the tomb was built. He ...
