AGRICULTURAL. THE FRUITFUL VALLEY OF THE SANTA CLARA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894

- AGRICULTURAL THE FRUITFUL VALLEY OF THE * SA:NTA.CLARiA. Whoever has paid a vieit: to the Goden State and had tho leisir -to deipore its wonders, must iave been chirmesd by the appearance of this-one of Nature's most luxurious teds. For of all natural gardens wiih man's assistance, surely few, if any. reaeh a state of perfection which-is hoe to be found. Semi-tropical vegetation clothes the earth with rich profusion, cud the balmy air completes that sense of subdued delight which the vision has primarily originated. With a temperature that rarely falls below 50deg, fruits of all varieties grow abundantly, and, sheltered by the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mo1umtains, are orange and almond groves, vineyards, cerrv, peach, apricot, prune, apple and pear orchards. Melons also thrive well ; and lately a sug gestion for the cultivation of the co-ee berry on the gentle slopes of the moun tains has been receiving attention.

A SAD WANT OF ORIGINALITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894

A SAD WANT OF ORIGINALITY. The Crown Prince of Denmark fur aishes a curious example of the nomen clature practised by royal families. The rule in Turkey was that Amurath should succeed Amurath, and in England that George should succeed George, or Henry should follow Henry. In Den mark, hoaevcr, the rule has long been that Frederick should succeed Christian, and Christian Frederick. This is confusing enough to write in. telligibly, but it is still worse in practice. Nearly every Danish king .is naied Christian or Frederick,-and so the difli culty of distinguishing between themn is great. The present king is Christian IX. He was the son of Frederick VII. He w"ill be.succeededby Frederick VIIL ho will be followed by Christian X. The mere fact that the. present Crdov .Pmrince is known as Frederick,-and~tlhatif bie Jdied before his fatliei- he Would beisucceded in his rights by hiis son,TPrfince Christian, is nothing at all - All the sons of the RoyaL House of :Demtiark are Christian and...

WELL - AIMED. - The prettiest shot I eversaw was made by a woman. I was travelling in Coles County, Illinois, in 1868, and stopped for dinner at the cabin of a settler named Mtmken. During the preparationof dinner Mr. Munken and I sat in the shade of the cabin, engaged in conversation. A little tow-headed youngster, less than a year old, was. playing about in the large yaid. Suddenly we heard the sharp whir-r-r of a rattlesnake.

COMBS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 15 June 1894

COMBS. A very remote antiquity is claimed for the comb, which is of Egyptian origin. At first it was made of wood and isorey, but it was used for adjusting rather than fastening the hair, a pin or bodkin being employed for the latter purpose.- The Greeks and tlomais, who dressed their hair with great care. uncd combs of hoxwood, iron and bronze. The precious metals were also required in their nmnufacture, as we may infer from the golden ones aserilled to the goddesses; but in no instance do we find their shell or horn ones mentioned in the classics. The use of the comb in cutting the hair is refeired to by Pilutus, .c. 184. From specimene found at Pompeii, it is evident that combs with teeth on both sides were in use at avery early period. The comb of the Middle Ages exhibits omuch curious elaboration, with but little improveicnent in utility. At a later period gold and silver were extensively employed in their mantfacture, and pearls :vere also ddded. The comb was thus made an eleg...
