WHAT TOMATO LEAVES WILL DO. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
WHICAT TOlA TO ESAVES WIEL "I planted tin orchard," writes 2I. Siory, of the Society of Iorticulture of Valparaiso and the trees grew well aid strongly. They had but just comencod to bud when they were invaded by the cur cuilo (pulgan), which insect was followed, as frequently happens, by ants. Having cultivated sometomatoes, the idea occured to me that by placing sotite of the leaves around the trunks and branches of peach trees I might preserve them from the r?,s of the sun, which are very powerful. MIy surprise was very great upon the following day to find the trees entirely free from the enemies, not one remaining, excepit here and there where a curled leaf prevented the tomato from exercising its influence. These leaves I carefully un rolled, placing upon them fresh ones from the tomato vine, with theresult of banish ing the last insect, and enabling the tree to grow in luxuriance. Wishing to carry still further my experiment I steeped in water some fresh ones from the tomato, ...

MILLITARY SHAM FIGHT IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
MfELOLL W l M A1f ?FGfL . We quote the following interesting article from the A.ge of Monday last; A sham fight between the metropolitan infantry and artillery troops took place on Saturday afternoon in Albert Park, mid way between South Melbourne and St. Kilda. The offer ofVictoria to send troops to the Soudan and satisfactory enrolment of volunteers alreadyn made, no doubt added to the importance of the occasion, hence tile attendance 'of spectators was unuunallylarge, fully 5000 being present. The plan of "operations was very simple indeed. It was drawn up by Colonel Brownrigg with the object of testing the troops in the new formn of-infantry attack recently- introduced into time Prussian army, and in which the Victorian militia have been drilled during the last two months. It was supposed that the enemy (the St. Kilda Artillery and the Victorian) had landed at IBrighton on Friday night, marched to St: Kilda by daylight on Saturday, and seized the St. Kilda rail way station and a...
MOGLONEMBY JOTTINGS [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
MIOGJULOAlYLB TOTTIX QS BY "INCOG." You should just hear us cookies criti cising "Yan Yean's" letter. We don't know who lihe is, and perhaps its as well that we don't for some of us have conme to the conclusion that he is a big rate payer; and if the mask were thrown olif we might be disappointed. We are, I be lieve, unanimous in thinking " Yan Yean's" idea of having a tap at every back door, a nice shower bath every day, pure filtered water to drink, and so on, a very excellent one, and well worth all the publicity the columnss of the Adverltier can afford ; but at the same time we thinik these things would be as acceptable to farnners as to townsmen. Now farmers don't ask for such things, for they try to obtain them for themselves, and though they would have no objection to have a portion of their rates splnt for the benefit of the town, I uam sure there would be a general. outcry were the council to attempt to appropriate their imoney for the pur pose of supplying Euroa with wate...

PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNJRIG. " MODERATE. BUT PROGRESSIVE." FRIIDA Y, FEBRUIdRY 27th., 1885. VICTORIAN OFFER REFUSED. So3tr little disappointment will naturally be felt by those fired with the new-born military ardour evoked in Victoria, now that their services have been for the presentdeclined. But no feeling of angershould be engendered nor should jealousy at the honor con ferred on the elder colony be permitted to exist. The first offer was made by Now South Wales, and as a compliment to Australia and to indicate the sym pathetic federation of the Empire, it was promptly accepted. Should the exigencies of thecircumstances demand it, or should GreatBritainibe embroiled in any other war, no doubtthe splendid offer of the younger colonies will be accepted with alacrity. At present Great Britain, without outside aid, is vell able to.cope with her present foes, and although it maydamp our enthusi asm and hurt our pride, on the whole it were better that caution should be exhibited o...
