There has berena uch a remedy recommended as a sulution of P'eais green. which is a very dangerous ingredient, and should never be used as it renders the fruit poisonous and nnheatlly, and in the rand does no good.

Velocity of a Cannon Ball. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 December 1893
Velocity of a Cannon Ball. Thehighest ve!o;ity attiued by a cannon ballhasbeen estimated at 1,622 feet per second, which is equal to a mile in 3d scconds. The velocity of the earth at its equator, due to its rotation on its axis, is 1,00 miles per second, or a mile every 3"d seconds. Thereforc ýit has been calculted that if a cannon ball were fired due west, and that it could maintain its initial velocity for 2 .hours, it would barely best the sun in its apparent journey round the earth.

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. Diseases of the Horse's Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 December 1893
ACRICULTURAL COLUM?N Diseases of the Horse's Eyes. Inlamed eyes auy be met with from various causes at all seasons of the year, but more pecially n summer heat and dust is that form of ophthalmia tobe seen in whichthe conjn tiva is the chief structure involvd. The horse'seyewoald be much more subject to ophthalmis but for the admirable contrivanee of nature known as the cartilage or membrana nictitans, which exists n the inner corner uas a concealed or third lid, and sweeps the front surfaceof the eye ree from flies or dust when ever the globe of the eye is pulled back upon its fatty cushionsby the muscles of which the re tractor is the chief. This memb:anous sweeper is sometimes backed eut by farriers, whose want of anatomical knowledge has led them to suppose that it is a morbid growthto be extir pated; and in purchasing a hone it is well to see that no interference of the kind has depreci. ated his value by rendering him more prone to infammatory attacks and occlusion of the lach...

Reedy Creek. -:o: FRoEM oca oWs COERESPONDE?TI]. THE Langridge machinery left here last week for the " Fortune of War G. AM. Coy." Western Australia. The manager of the mine on which the machinery will be erec ted, informed me that the carriage alone will cost something like £2,000. Une cannot help thinking that if the same amount was judiciously expended on the mine the machinery has left, that it would prove equal to any Western Australia mine. As a proof that there is still gold in the district, a nugget weighing a little under Sozs. was picked up at the Tonstall last week. A Ball and Supper arranged by the ladies of Reedy Creek, will be held in the flail on the 29th inst., in aid of the Kilmore Hospital. Every effort Is being made to make the affair a grand success.
