FARM NOTES. It is by successive plantings of beet seed from the plants which showed the greatest percentage of sweet, that the amount of saccharine matter in the beet has been Increased from eight per cent. from the best up to 1.4 and even 18 per cent., as some of the improved French varieties have shown. Vilmorin, a FIrenc:h seed grower, look the lead in these experiments. It might lx' sup poscd rhat in testing the beets it would thereafter be impossible to use such beets for planting. But Vilnorin was very careful in testing to only scoop out a small portion of the bulk. number ing each specimen, and when tile test of each was completed. electing these beets for seed wh-ich yielded the richest juices.

THAT £150,000 ! ITS ALLOTMENT AMONGST GIPPSLAND SHIRES. DISCUSSION BY THE WARRA GUL SHIRE COUNCIL. MINISTERIAL DISTRIBUTION OBJECTED TO. There are few subjects in which the ratepayers of Gippsland are more in terested at the present time than the proposal of the Government to allot a sum of £150,000-extendinmg over three years-amongst the 4th, 5th, and 6th class shires. The matter was introduced at yesterday's meeting of the Warragul Shire Council by President Smith, who said there were 29 municipalities in the classes named and that consequently there would be an average of between £5000 and £6000 foreach shire. He did not know why the Warragul Shire should come below the average, but knew of many reasons why it should come above it, and the question was, what action they should take to influence the Govern ment in satisfactorily allotting the money. He understood originally that the money was to be given in a lump sum, spread over the three years, of course, as explained in the Pr...

TO THE EDITOIR. - Sir,--As the committee of the War ragul Agricultural Society are appeal ing to the public, by means of a bazaar, to be held in the early part of December, to help them reduce the existing liability on the show ground, I would ask your kind permission, for space in your widely-circulated journal, to allow me to explain how it came to pass that the society became so deeply involved, and why the Committee should expect a hearty and generous response to their appeal. To explain how the Society got into this position it is necessary to give a brief history of the Society from its birth. In December, 1884, the Warragul Agricultural Society first came into existence. The first show was held in March, 1885, the stock beingexhibited in the old sale yards, where Lyons' stables now stand, and the produce, etc,, was on exhibition at the Athen ieum. Notwithstanding that they had to contend with so many dis advantages the show was a great success,...

DEFINITION OF NEGLIGENCE. AN INTERESTING STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
DEFINITION OF NEGLIGENCE. AN INTERESTING STATEMENT. His Honor, addressing the jury, said: Gentlemen,-This is an action of negligence. You may not quite understand what that means until I explain. Whenever anybody invites a person to come to his place of busi ness the law imposes on him the duty of pro tecting the person invited. If an auctioneer, a publican, a shopkeeper, or anybody else chooses to invite the public the law requires that person to pursue the duty of keeping his place in a tit condition so that no accident shall happen to them. Any neglect of that duty is what we lawyers call negligence: Therefore in a case like this we will have to consider, first the duty and then the neglecj of the persons concerned. You must not rul' away with the notion that because the law requires a person to keep their premises in a safe condition they are to be put in a condi tion of insurance. You are not bound to insure them, but you are bound to do every thing that can reasonably be expec...

The summing up of Judge Casey in the railway case at the Varragul County Court was interesting and important insofar as it contained a lucid legal defini tion of the term "negligence."

Harvie, Ellenbank, will be found in this issue. The professional notice of MIr J. Dodds, music teacher, WVarragul, will be found on this page.

HORTICULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
HCR ICULTUIAL_ THE ORCHARD. As requested by a North-Eastern d:uIL grower, we give the following instruc tions for combating the peach leaf turl. This is a very destructive pest, and too much care cannot be exercised in pre venting it extending its ravages. The leaves of infected trees dry up and ulti mately fall. If fruit Is formed, it soont drops when the leaves are much affect-, and the whole tree is unhealthy and barren. It has been erroneously thought th.t this disorder is occasioned by ap-. hfdes. Aphides are frequently found in the folds of the infected leaves, as they very often infest leaves of many, plants and trees that are unhealthy, but on the same tree curled leaves ma con stantly be seen which have no trace of .aphides upon them. In the first stage of this attack the green skin, or epider mis of the leaf, becomes much thick.ned&lt;8 and assumes a velvety appearance. The leaf becomes more and more curled anid contorted, and is finally of a light rd~i color, gene...
HOW TO HAVE WATERPROOF BOOTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
IOW TO HAVE WATERPROXF?? BOOTS. Dry foot-wear is such a paramnount necessity, if we would .continue in good health, that I think it well to give this way of waterproofing boots and shoes. Mix half a pint each of linseed oil and neatsfoot oil, and boil them for a quar ter of an hour, stirring it well at times. Brush the boots or shoes thoroughly, and then rub in the oil, standing near the fire. Let it sink in well. Do'this occasionally. As the merits of ammonia become understood (observes "'Black and White"), its use spreads in many direc tions. Its cleansing powers are as great as they are healthy, and a table spoonful of Scrubb's Cloudy Fluid Am monia forms a refreshing and useful addition to the morning bath . It has a softening effect upon the water and - bracing effect upon the skin, and, added toaho t bath, it induces something of the pleasurable sensation experienced after a Turkish bath. A large shilling bottle also fulfils other requirements by removing stains from clothes a...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
THE KITCHEN GARDEN.' I The planting of the main crop of pota-. toes should be pushed on with as fa.nt as possible. The later varieties requiris more room than that advised for tho early kinds. The rows should be at least thirty inches apart, and the tubers 12 inches in the row. Make successional sowings of peas. Yorkshire Hero, Anrti clpation, Daisy, will be found suitable foad present sowing. If plants of herbs ard not available, now is a good time tcl make a sowing of seed. The drills slzoldl be a foot apart, and just deep enough td cover the seed when well above that ground; thin out the plants to a foodt apart. In the autumn the plants may) be taken up and divided, and replanted for the next season. Apart from the sort' usually grown, such as savory, thyme, sage, and marjoram, there are many) which are very useful for flavoring} soups; others possess medicinal quall ties, for instance, rue is a splendid rno* medy for roup in fowls, balm makes 31 cooling drink in case of fever, e...
CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANT'.. The weather during the past week han had marked effect on all depaxrtments oi! the garden. Active growth has com menced, and every care must be takers that it does not receive a check. Ach) mines that are growing strongly will need staking before the shoots becom r long, otherwise they are liable to bet broken. In staking, the stick should a} ways be placed behind the shoot, so .as to be out of sight as much as possible. Rai; fia is the best tying material to use, and this should be rolled between the fingeiu and thumb before using, to prevent. i sect pests from ottaining a breeding place. Achimenes\ in baskets require plenty of moisture, and should be turnedW around to the light every few days', tai promote an even growth. Ferns arcs starting freely, and require A moist at mosphere. The paths of the houses should be damped down morning anim evening. Any ferns that were not re-, potted must be given occasional watet-r Ings of weak manure water. At this4...
