FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
FARM NOTES. The cow pea is well worth growing as a fodder plant, either for summer soil Ing or to put in the silo. It is much richer in the nitrogen elements of p1blts food than corn, and it would be well i1. some cow peas were grown on every; farm to put into the silo to balance the too carbonaceous coin ration as win ter food for stock. The cow pea is.se strongly nitrogenous that it heats tod, fast if not mixed with corn before it lh. put in the silo. Neither the bones of the colt's leg noe the muscles and hoof of his foot have' acquired sufficient firmness to enable.it& to be put on stable floors of either wood, stone or cement. If for any reason the. colt cannot run with its dam while asb5? is at work, let it have a yard by itseld. with a turf flooring, rather than putll him in a floored stable. It is while th ' colt is young that the future charact?a of his foot is being decided. Even in winter, colts should be kept rather !ia: box stalls, where a bedding of theld own e...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. A sowing should now be made of the round, or summer, spinach. The soil for this variety requires to be quite as rich as that for the winter kinds; similar treatment will do for these as advised for the last named, with the exception of the distance between the rows and plants being about half as great. In stead of plucking the leaves from the plants as in the case of the winter spin rch, the plants are pulled up bodily when required for use. A few seeds of water and rock melons for early use should be sown in a hot bed, the same as advised for capsicums last week. It is best to put three or four seeds in a 4-inch pot, so that when the plants are !r-:.1 they may be planted out withoutt ?ii tuibing the roots in any way. Tn'o or three plants are quite enough for e: chl hill, the plants should be well har.e3,,ne-! off previous to planting out. Th- ?ri1 for rock melons should be a good, ratthe a strong, loam, without manure, except L' little to give the plants a start...

FEES AT WESTMINSTER ABBEY In connection w\ith AMr Gladstone's death, a contributor to t:w "Scots Pic torial" has had the curiosity to look in to the matter of the fees accompanying interment in Westminster Abbey. For merly these fees amounted to L-50 or L1GO, besides scarfs. hatbands, and gloves-little extras charged in the un dertaker:s bill.

Amongst them were fees to the chantor and the Dean, amounting to L40 6s; decoration fees to the chantor and officers, L118s; and ninety pairs of gloves to the choir. This tribute was commuted for fifteen guineas. A penalty of LI for burying in linen was a relic of the old law, which, with the object of encouraging the York shire trade, directed that everyone should be buried in woollen. It was only In 1871 that this relic of the past was finally disposed of. Up to ten years ago the undertaker had the privilege of providing silk scarfs, hat bands, and gl...

HORTICULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
HCH'TCULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. In early districts, where grafting is to be p-)rfo'rnel, the trees s hould be headed down at once to the point where grafts are to be inserted, especially where strong limbs have to be cut dlwu. Select a position where the bark i.; smooth, and near the base or origin of branches. On large old trees four or five branches are enough to re tain, selecting the best placed. The diameter of the branches is immaterial, as se2veral grafts can be inserted on one, and when it is intended to replace .in ferior varieties of apples or pears by superior on old trees this is the best nmthod, operating mainly by crown grafting, the cleft and notch process :also being practised. Crown Grafting This is the most common form of reno vating old trees, and is applicable wher ever branches are over an inch in dia meter. If the branches are shortened early in the season, a further portion may teo removed now, so thnt the work ing Is carried out with fresh wood and bark. Preparin...

TWO ONION DISHES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
%A WO ONION DISHES. A Delicate Preparation of Onions. Most of us are familiar with the fact that onions as an article of diet are soothing to the nerves, and thus are quieting and refreshing to the whole system. Notwithstanding the good qualities of this vegetable, it is rarely seen upon our tables. Beefsteak and onions on a rainy day in the country, or when camping out, or perhaps a few tiny ones cut up with cucumbers, are all my lady has hitherto allowed to ap pear on her table. Fashion has at last taken this malodorous bulb in hand, however, and proclaims it good for the complexion, which puts a new face upon the matter, or, rather, another dish upon the table. Jack has always been bold in defence of the onion, and, as Jill has had a sneaking regard for its flavor, it needed only this reputation as a beau tifier to give it its deserved place, and it may now be said to be fairly launched upon its new career. An Onion Puree.-This is as dainty to look upon as its flavor is delicate,...
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. As the sun gains strength a moist at mosphere must be maintained in the warmer houses, the plants should be syringed twice a day, especial care being taken to thoroughly wet the leaves un derneath. The object is to prevent the increase of thrips and red spider. It is a good plan to use a weak solution of nicotine blight cure occasionally. Tu bers of begonias that were started as previously advised, should now be ready for potting on. For this, use a mix ture of equal parts turfy loam and peat, with plenty of sand, and a small portion of well rotted stable manure. Do not pot too firm, and be careful not to injure any of the young roots. Remove them to a fairly warm house until they are well established, keeping them shaded from strong sunshine. When the pots are full of roofs, give plenty of water, and a light syringing overhead, keep the plants turned around to promote an even growth. Plants of crotons, dractenas, palms, etc., whose pots are full of ...
WHAT PEOPLE SAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
WHAT PEOPLE SAY. Mr. Lousada says: There is scarcely a fat beast in the district, but springers are coming in fast, and at our last market they sold very well. Mr. J. L. Parkes says: There is hardly a vacant cottage in the town ship, and the better class of houses are at a premium. Mr. G. W. Anderson says: Some of the local holders of New Per severance have let some of their shares go during the past few days. They couldn't resist the "rise," and I have successfully placed several parcels on the market for clients. Mr. T. Hogan says: It is a very noticeable fact that while cattle are miserably poor in every district, the sheep at Neerim look remarkably well. Ours, for instance, are in very good condition. I suppose this is because they can nibble so close to the ground, and thus have the advantage of cattle and horses. Mr. Picken says: It looks as though the Government grant to the nmuni cipalities is to be distributed on the principle of giving most to the shires which need it most...
