PRUNING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885

PRUNING TREES.' In well. mapaged orchards it becomes seldom necessary to cut away very large limbs,.the trees having been so trained when young that there' will not be any superfluous main branches. But as not all orchards are in this enviable condi tion, large branches will sometimes have to be removed. In this case the wounds thus pro duced sliould be covered with soume substance that protects them against the influence of water and air, else rot soon sets in, and will ultimately destroy or seriously injure the entire tree. Graft ing wax, shellac dissolved in alcohol, mastic, cow dung and clay, and other substances are used for this purpose, but for convenience of application and at the same time answering all purposes, nothing is bet'er adapt,.d than the ready mixed commom paints, applied undiluted.

Agricultural [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885

Make up your mind that every, acre you cultivate the coming season shall be made to do its very best. The Farm Journal advises that~ we keep cribbing horses loose in stables without man gers. Let them eat off the floor. A herd of cows having only a very pure soft water to drink were seriously affected with the disease called there bone brittleness ; when the herd was supplied; with hard water (lime) the disease disappeared, but only to reappear when the cattle were put back on the soft water again. The San Jose Herald concludles an article on " Planting an Orchard," as follows : Our advice to everybody, therefore, may be summed up in a few words: Be sure'you have good soil, then choose the variety of trees best suited to the soil and location, and last, but not least, cultivate. with the utmost care and diligence. In this consists the whole secret of successful fruit growing,

Last week, the master and pupipil met: 'Their greeting wns very cordial, and the pupil looked mean when he suddenly'remembered his vow, and with drawing his hand, remarked-.

Wasted Talent. "I would like to run this paper for about six months," said a new reporter of this journal; " the present managing editor doesn't know his business." " What's the trouble 7" he was asked by a fellow reporter. "Why, last night I was assigned to report a fire over in Fitzroy side, and I wrote it up in grand style, making a half column article of it. I began it in this way. ' Suddenly on the still night air rang the shrill cry of fire, and at the same moment the little licking tongue of flame, whose light plays along the roof's edge had caught the eye of the midnight watcher, leaped forth, no longer playful, but fierce and angry in its thirst and greed. Like glowing, snaky demons the lurid links en twined the doomed building; in venomous hisses: and. spurts the flames shot into the ovcrhanging darkness, while from every win dow and door poured forth a dense sul phurous smoke, the deadly suffocating breath of an imprisoned fiend.'
