KIWG OF VIOLINISTS. JOSEPH JOACHIM. Joseph Joachim, whose death has plunged the whole of the musical world Into genuine sorrow, had enjoyed the friendship of most of the famous names In music, art, and literature ol a dozen countries. He was on familiar terma. with Diokene, .Rubenstein, Thackeray, Carlyle, Moltke, Tennyson, Wagner, Bis marck, Gounod, and Verdi, to mention a few names at random, and this list could be extended ad infinltum. He was born on 2Stn June, 1SS1, so he was in his seventy-seventh year. His musical edu cation synchronised with his instruction j in walking and talking. At four years j Pf age he was able to accompany his elder sisters on the guitar, and at five he. commenced seriously to study the violin under Szervvaczynski, the leader of th3 orchestra at Uuda-Pesth.

An Induction. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 30 October 1907

An Induction. ' At the 'Presbyterian Church on Wednesday night the new pastor. Rev. James Fletcher Briggs, was inducted as its minister. The ceremony was very interesting; and what struck us most was the democratic tone of the proceedings. Previous to the service, the interim moderator (Rev. John Steel) read from the door of the church for the   third and last time the edict calling Mr. Briggs to tbe pastorate, thus giving anyone who had an objection to state it. - The service was commenced by the congregation singing hymn 373. The Rev. Hugh Wilson, of Granville, then offered) up a prayer. He next read a chapter of the Bible, and the congre gation then sang hymn 448. Tup Rev.

THE BEEKEEPER SWARMS AND SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 6 November 1907

THE BEBKEEPEB swA&xs asd swABxnra. . An American apiarist has sent the following' question to the 'American Beekeeper':— :'How can you keep ydur colonies queenless after the second swarm has returned?' In reply, the paper states that the youngest larvee li supposed to be tuur days old or seven days from the egg— too old to rear a queen from. It the first swarm was to be delayed a day or two, by weather or other Interference, it might cause the second swarm to issue in less than seven days after the first swarm Issued. Then the queens might leave a few eggs, and there would be larvae that would not be too old. Some eplarists contend that second swarms are large because they include the bees of the first swarm. This Is true in some cases, but it is by no means the general rule. The sice of the first swarm is varied a great deal by the amount of reverence the bees pobwbb for their old qu«en. This lx governed by tier age and her ability to lay eggs for the prosperity of the colo...
