Pivo years ago .the cultivation o£ this whole Bome tablo vegetable, cs for as supplying tho wants of a largo Sydney market was concerned, was only in its infant stages : indeed tho two or three farmers who first went e/rtensivoly into oabbage growing could not havo had the remotest idea that their example would bo followed by so many more. As an instance of tho progress that lias been made, it is intero.sting to note that last yeur over 1000 tons of cabbages were despatched from ' iho Bo\vral rail way station to supply the demands of a hungry Syd ney market.

A PUZZLING TRANSACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

"Oi want tin dollars, and Oi want it roight now." "Faith, you'ro a bit loively, Mr. O'Farrel. But didn't Oi understand that ycz sold the cow's hide and tallow down ter the village ? How much did yez get for tho baste ?" " Yiz, Oi did, and Oi got tin dollars and fifty cents for it, Mr. McSway." " Well...

WHY FLOWERS SMELL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 29 January 1902

WHY FLOWERS SMELL. A BerieB of investigations mode by M. Eugene Mesnard indicate that light exerts a mechanical action which plays an important ' part in tiio emission of perfume by flowers. The intensity of the perfume of a flower, according to our authority, depends on the equilibrium that is established every hour in the day between tlio pressuro of the water in the cells, which tends to expel outward the perfumes contained in the plant skin, and the action of light, which opposes this effort. He says the whole physiology of odoriforous plants depends on this principle. . We may understand thus why flowers are less odorous in the countries of the Orient than in our own regions; why trees, shrubs, fruits, and) even pods are there Bometimca full of odorous I products more or less reBinificd; why, finally, the general vegetation there is thorny and skelctonic; for in these countries there is too ' much light and not enough water. |

"POLLYS" APPEAL. It has hithorto been customary to fritter away the intellectual force of parrots by merely teaching them to Bay " Pretty Poll," and things of that sort, but the municipal authorities of a Continental town have in stituted what is to be hoped will become a general reform. The poor-box at the Town Hall had been for a long time in a condition discreditable to the more prosperous of the inhabitants. To remind them of their duty towardB poorer neighbours, a parrot was purchased, which was installed close to the box and trained to cry, " For the poor, if you please!" The result, it is stated, has been highly satisfactory.
