WOMEN'S LIBERAL LEAGUE. The annual council meetings of the Women's Liberal Federation began at Westbourne Park Chapel, London, on 21st June. There was a large attendance. The Countess of Carlisle presided, and she was supported by the members of the executive.

THE SUPREMACY OF THE AIR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

THE SUPREMACY OF THE AIR.' There were some suggestive passages in the interesting address delivered be fore, the Aeronautical Society at the Society of Arts on the 24th June by Mr G. L. O. Davidson on the subject of mechanical flight. Mr Davidson warned his audience of the danger to be appre hended if a German, Frenchman, or a Russian be the first to succeed.in con structing a practical flying machine, which would on occasion prove a: ter tible engine of destruction in the hands of the unscruipulous. According to him, it will be necessary for England to main tain the supremacy of the air as now we must of the sea-a statement to make Chancellors of the Exchequer tremble. Doubtless the time is to come when the Army and Navy Estimates will be sup plemented by those of our aerial de fences-twentieth century toast, "The Army, Navy, and Aerial Forces"-while a league with a suitable name will doubtless be formed to keep our supply of air-ships up to the mark. But this stage has not yet bee...

HINTS ON POTTING Potting. or giv'ing fre?.h -oil an! in creased root room to .,lanit. is divided into two well-defined methods--n.aumtly. repotting a'nd potting on. The former method is carried out when plants do not require larger pots. hut need fresh soil or clean drainage. Palms, numerous ferns, pelargoniums, and many hard-wooded plants, the root ing mediuni of which may have become sour, occasionally need turning out, the roots examined. and pruned to healthy parts, old, inert soil carefully picked away, as well as choked drainage, after wards plaicng the plants In similar sized pots.. In some cases, however, turning, the plants completely out of the pots may not be necessary-or convenient, but simply the loose inert soil dug out down to the roots, filling up the space with fresh material. This is termed top dressing, and is adopted chiefly where roots are not abundant in the surface soil, or where the loss of a few along with the impoverished materials is not of much .consequen...

ANATOMY OF THE HORSE'S FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

ANATOMY OF THE HORSE'S FOOT. Military officers and the majority of private gentlemen with a love of horses are in these days acquainted with the structure of the horse's foot. oither by their attendance at lectures at Aldershot or elsewhere; but there are doubtless some readers to whom a brief sketch of this important part of the horse will be acceptable, if only to remind them of points they may have forgotten. The foot, which in shape may be described as a. section of a truncated cone (Fig. 1), i -':nveniently divided into external FTG. "-A. PROPORTTONATE HOOF. and internal parts. The insensitive hoof when detached has the appearance of a horny box without the lid, and this is called the external.

ABOUT MONOPOLIES. To create a nlonItpoly is, it you :.an effect, it, the quickest and safest way of making a fortune yet invented by man. You may buy at sixpence, and as nobody else has any of the article you sell to the wholo world at seventpence, which if the whole world buys Iiecans millions. Fortunately it is also the most ditilcult way. it looks easy if you have money enough, for no law interferes with your purchases, and, except in the rarest cases, no one with power to execute the decree will forbid your asking for an article of commerce any price you plefase. In civilised countries the .Co vernment is usually loth to interfere, though we have kno-Wn that done in the case of salt, and the chance of being lynched, even when much misery is in flicted, is exceedingly remote.

The glance he had given he rat parting had turned her thoughts in his direction, and she began to look on hint in a more amiable light than she had hitherto done. Her love for Herne had completely died away since' the death of Milly, and she now began to compare Mexton, to the disad vantage of the Squire. The conduct of the latter in regard to the discovery of the assassin of Milly had not lpr.ipos sessed her in his favor; and site con trasted his lukewarm pursuit with the fiery zeal of Paul. The friend of her youth seemed noble in comparison to Herne, and Iris reproached herself for having overlooked for so long hlii many good qualities.

A woman is never too warm or too fatfgued to notice another woman'w gown, and as Virginia waited at the soda counter her observant eyes took lI. every detail of the charming summer costume worn by a young woman who was standing at the telephone. Just now she was a bit out of temper. "Ex press 2804," she called impatiently.

CONTAGIOUS. It was (says "Harper") on a crowded suburban car out of Washington, one day last summer, that -a middle-aged woman, carrying a fretful baby, was forced to squeeze herself into a small space left vacant beside a dapper youth of possibly twenty years. His counte nance had all the expression of his im maculate white suit, except for a look. of disgust which he assumed as the baby in its restlessness would touch him with foot or hand. Finally, he turned to wards the woman, and inquired, in a tone quite audible to those near him: "Ah, beg pawdon, madam, but has this child anything-ah-contagious?" The nurse was a motherly-looking woman. Glancing compassionately at him through her gold-rimmed spectacles, she remarked meditatively: "Well, now,. I don't know, young man; but-ah-it might be to you. She's teething!" After this, for a few moments before he left the car, the young man's face was a study in expression.

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

THE FLOWER GARDEN. The past mild v;eather has caused roses to shoot into active growth. It would bo well to delay the final pruning of hl'briB perpetuals until all danger of frost ia past, as probably the early blooms .will be injured if the shoots are allowed tio remain, the back buds will remain dor mant, and will come forward when all danger is past. The staking of carna tions and herbaceous pllants should pro ceed with the growth of plants; if leftI too late, the shoots are oftentimes do stroyed by high winds. Where the buds of carnations are eaten out by a grubif the plants should be treated with :s sprayihg of Paris green, using 1lb to 100 gallons of water. The cleansing of roses of the insect pests is an important mat ter. Aphis or green fly, if not checkeld in time, soon rob the plants of their vigor, and spoil the beauty of thei?i blooms.
