Being met by an old acquaintance le was asked for all the particulars of his .giving up the profession. ' Didn't it agree with your health 1' ' Oh, yps,' answered Uncle Joe, as he was familiarly called by hia ?friends. 'Didn't it pay 1' 'First rate.' ' Meit with sufficient favour from the courts J' ' All 1 could ask.' ' Then what is it compelled you to quit it t' ' Well I'll tell you — 1 was too bnnost.' A loud laugh 'by the liystandors aroused Uncle Joe into «arnet-tness, and he repeated tho strange statement, And nailed it to hia shop-counter with his huge list.

Prickly Pear. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 8 May 1889
Prickly Pear. Row to get rid of prickly pear has been described by Mr. T. G. Hewlett, deputy surgeon-general, late Banitary commissioner for the Government of Bombay, in a letter to the Times. Mr. Hewlett has for many years past waged war against the noxious plant, on accoutofthe tilth it accumulates in close vicinity of every village in India. At length, he says, a perfect solution of the pro blem has been discovered by Mr Benold, the able executive engineer, to whom the duty of rendering the ancient city of Bijnur fit for re-occupation has been entrusted by the Government of Bombay. The area withiu the walls in two and half square miles, aud the outside for long distances was unapproachable. Now fine broad roads have l-cen cleared right through into the city. Burniug was first tried to no effect. Mr Uenold then tried burying at least two feet deep, with perfect success. This plan has been in operation for three or four years, and in view of tho rapid spread of the pest a suggestio...

Poultry Houses. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
Poultry HouBes. There is no absolute necessity of having expensive and elaborate houses for poultry, for very plain and inexpensive ones will answer equally as well, provided they air roomy, comfortable, and kept clean, to from filth, and bad odours, Ik, In fs more choice fowls come from just aucb tablishments as the latter named, than those where all the care pains and n-jf expended upon 'nppearances,' and 'tet the poultry themselves, except the outlay for the breeding stock, which may not have been large,
Asparagus. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
Asparagus. Within thirty years, careful ex periments neve proved that larger and better asparagut can be grown on a light sandy land than on heavy, cold land, that close planting is not as well as it is to set far enough apart to give the plants plenty of room, and, finally, that salt' is of no use, but that it is a positive injury to the plant. So great has been the change in the methods of growing asparagus, that the o'd books contain but little that is of any value and much that is positively misleading.
Pot Plants. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
Pot Plants. In tho course of the winter the surface of the soil in pots becomes hard and mossy, or at least covered with fungoid growth. The plants will be greatly benefited if the mosses be removed, the soil loosened on the surface, and a rich top dress ing added. This mossy covering is hurtful is several ways. The out side of the pots, also, should be wafthod A (TPIlprnl nlcmninrr m\ will bt helpful to the plants and pleasing to the eye.
The Pigs that Pay. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
The Pigs that Pay. The shortest time in which we can attain a weight of 80 to 150 pounds will gwe us the cheapsst and best pork. . Hpw can we do this 1 Not by trying to fatten tbe pigs as soon as weaned, and those who at this age beging once heavy corn feeding usually find their pigs becoming unthrifty before they have attained the desired weight. There must be no carelessness or neglect if the pigs are to be marketed early. As soon as they begin to eat wizn weir mocners provide a pen aajoin ing for them and begin to teach them to eat. Give them soaked corn and milk with a little bran in it. If you have but little milk use boiled meal or bran, and it is always good to use with other foods. First Dude: 'Why do you hang two thermometers in the window ?' Second Dude; 'My dear fellah, one is for the heat and tlie other is for the cold, you know. You ain'^as well up in astronomy as 1 thought you was.'
Cooking for the Sick, [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
Cooking for the Sick, As common sense should teach, true careful nursing and nourishing, and di gestible food are better than medicine for strengthening tbe . system and enabling it to throw off dicease. The three events of the day to an invalid are tbe three meals. How gratefully it is remembered, if they have been delicately and 'well ad ministered. Let the mother or-wifej prepare them' with her own hand, withput consulting the invalid, and strive to vary the bill of fare, providing it is always suitable nourish ment. - » ' ;
The Fastest Horse in the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
The Fastest Horse in the World. The performances of Carbine at Randwick lost week show that over a given diKtaoce and upon equal terms he is the fastest horse in Australia, if not in the world. ThoBe who patronised tho turf on the excuse that they are anxious 'to improve the breed of. horses will, doubtless, congratulate them- 1 selves upon the sample of equine perfection which the Australasian racing stable has turned out. There is no doubt about it that as a race-horse Carbine is a wonder, and in his case we have an undeniable example of what scientific breeding can do in the way of producing sensational gallopers. But to say that this is any benefit to the community at large is sheer nonsense. Carbine is mere ly the perfection of a four-legged gambling machine, and is to be looked upon in exactly the same light as a perfect model of a roulette wheel or dice-box. For other pur poses tlie race-horse is absolutely useless. He has been ' improved ' to a degree that he would evch cold...

Tho Sculling Championship. Wo Uk-' the following from the N. Y. Polite Gazette, and, allowing our American friends to have first deal, will beg leave to cut in and take oui turn after : — ' Judging from tho information I have re ceived from the Pacific Slope, there is little prospect of William O'Connor, the American champion oarsman and holder of the Polite Gautlt challenge cup, at present going to New South Wales to meet H.

The Fuller-Powell Fight. THIRTY-ONE ROUNDS END IN A DRAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
The Fuller-Powell Fight' THIETY-ONE BOUNDS END IN A DRAW. From what purports to be a report of the battle between those two crack light-weights, Juck Fuller, of Sydney, and George Powell, of Brisbane, published in Queensland Figaro, I gather that, for one thing, Jack's name is Harry, and for another he was lOst 31b when be fought. I'm game to bet the amateur who faked up this alleged report, tbat whatever ' TTurrw ' Fnllnr nmv wpiffh. nr nnr .Tafflr weighed 9st 121b in the ring the night he and Powell met; and, to go a point further, there ia nothing like two inches between their respective heights. The writer tells us both man were backed at the finish. Fuller tells me they were neither of them much the worse for wear at the finish. Figaro also said Fuller ' fights a good deal with his eyes, kfceping his head well back.' Um ! What does he me.in 1 Was Jack picking h)B eyes but and throwing them at Powell, of was he trying them at power of his handsome brown orbs,' and trying to mash...
The Power of Cheerfulness. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 15 May 1889
The Power of Cheerfulness. Give us the man who sings at his work 1 ]Bo his occupation what it may, he is equal to any of those who follow the same pursuit in silent sultenness. He will do more in the same time — he will do it better— he will persevere longer. One is scarcely sensible of fatigue while he marches to music. The very stars are said to make harmony as they resolve in their spheres. Wondrous is tho strength of cheerfulness, altogether past cal culation its power of endurance. Efforts, to be permanently useful, must be uniformly joyous — a spirit all sunshine, graceful from very gladness, beautiful because bright.
