London Mid Surrey Times And General Advertiser (Newspaper) - August 4, 1894, London, Middlesex Saturday August 4, 1894. Contemporary Chat. Men have noticed with some interest that in the a Otoum a Quot of the Hwy generations of Royalty a akan at Kun hmong on the occasion of the baby a lip Prince of Wales is represented As wearing i finale breasted Waistcoat and a frock r0.,f which fastens with a couple of link buttons cum i Elow the lapels. The Duke of York s Waist Roa. On tie other hand is double breasted but his frock coat appears to he made in the same Way As acis father s. Hoth gentlemen have adopted Scarf fas with Little or no fullness and their collars Are turned Back in pronounced Points. The Duke of York appear to have favoured the German fashion and to be wearing a wedding ring on tie third Finger of Bis left hand. Or. Walter , whose death is announced lived at Hrasc nose College Oxford where he led the quiet. Secluded life of a rapt student. In habit of thought Dir Lares the Star he was As fastidious and Choice a. His exquisite prose. His rooms Are a dream of Art abounding in Dainty pictures rare China Ami Choice editions. Among these or. Pater spent Lii Days in tie study of the classics and the acquisition of culture up to his Finger tips. Or. Tatar hold original views upon English prose. He held that before perfect prose could be written the writer should have his artistic sympathies elicited in a very direction. Ill marvellous style of a Marius the epicurean a shewed that this must have taken place in or. La aters Case before be began to write. His was the style of the thinker and the Flea Mcra Long involved sentences unaccustomed turns of expression and exquisite Choice of the a test words. Lord Walter Gordon Lennox who has just announced his retirement from parliament Oil the ground of ill health has although he has not yet attained 30rh year made his Mark in Public life he was treasurer of the household from 1891 till the fall of the late government in 1892. He is also one of lord Salisbury a private secretaries and is a member of the privy Council. He has been in the House of commons As member for Chichester from 188t. Lord Walter who his acted As one of the tory whips for the past three years is one of inc most familiar figures in the lobby of the House of commons and has won the praises of both friends and opponents alike by his genuine desire to promote the personal convenience of his fellow members and to Render the conditions of parliamentary life less trying by securing effective pairs. Bis presence will be greatly missed especially by or. Tanner the Irish nationalist whip whose relations with lord Walter were of the most cordial nature. In Miv surr Cut tit. I the fwd Jitu a a there is a piquancy about the j Bare fact a of or. Ero Ersoz the speaker of the new found land House of Assembly having been found guilty of obtaining his seat by bribery and corruption and accordingly unseated and disqualified for re election. There is however in English history a parallel Case. In 1695, sir John Trevor who was speaker of the House of commons and master of the Rolls in England was proved before a committee of tie House of commons to have received from the City 1,000 guineas for expediting a local Bill. As soon As the report of the committee had been read it was moved that the speaker who was actually in the chair had been guilty of a High crime and Misdemeanour. He had to stand up and put the question and was forced to declare that the ayes had it. He pleaded illness and did not appear in the House the next Day when a Royal message was brought Down authorising the commons to elect another speaker whose first official act was to preside Over the House when resolving unanimously on the expulsion of his predecessor. Professor Geffcken was once upon a time during the Bismarck Ian Rule put into prison for Plain a peaking. His Plain speech just now rather entitles a urn the thinks to the thanks of Europe none the less because he docs not. Prophesy pleasant things. professor is better posted than mo6t men in the politics of the continent and a paper which he Lias just published makes it All too Clear that the critical state of italian and austrian trance and also of russian though in a less degree a is the very reason which makes the awful catastrophe of a european War All the More to be apprehended. He shews from statistics that Germany is quite ready in Money and men alike to mobilise her la million men in 10 Days. France which is also Well prepared can he shews Bear an immense additional Load of taxation if it be necessary that Ebe should and if her finances be properly administer to. Which in his judgment they arc not at present Fie holds that All schemes for limiting the military expenditure of the Continental states Are that the limitation can Only be produced after the exhaustion of a War As happened in 1815. The very fact that it. Has been printed for All the world to read probably explains Why it is that no tidy knows anything about it. Most people will have observed that for some time past the Date Stamps of letters transmitted by the Tost office have borne certain new hieroglyphics. These record in every Case the hour at which the stamp was affixed. It is difficult to understand Why Plain figures Are not used As in the United states but then simplicity is Infra Day. In English government but the hieroglyphic code is so simple that it May be explained quite brie8y. The first 12 letters of the alphabet omitting a represent 1 the 12 hours and ? tie 12 periods of five minutes in an hour. A a a Means 1.5, a pm cd 12.1b, and so Forth. Ante Meridies is indicated by a after an asterisk a a Ost Meridies by p after an asterisk. Thus a Jmc a is 12.15 . And a Aap Quot is 1.5 . This explanation is contained in the current Issue of the Post office guide but it Lias attracted Little attention there. A Captain Coe a writes in sketch a Goodwood was the scene of one of the Cleverest bits of finessing Ever known a few years Back the principal figure living a Noble lord. Charles Wood was Riding in a Small race for which there were but few starters. Scarcely any betting had taken place when the horses reached the Post but Wood s mount was the nominal Favourite at 6 to 4. There was no genuine commission until the Nobleman referred to approached one of the big operators and remarking that he wanted a big bet asked for an offer on the Field. A you can have 6 to 4, my lord to a couple of thousand or 3 to 1 to the same amount bar Charley Wood s mount a a if you want to Back Wood ill Lay you 7,000 to 4,000 myself replied his lordship. The Omkie Dum foundered knew his customer was interested in the horse that Wood Rode but feeling certain that he would win if fancied politely declined the offer. In a very Short time �?o2 to 1 on the Field Quot was to it eing offered All Down the rails and was immediately accepted by a number of Young swells who were in the swim. Needless to say Wood s mount won and in a Canter too so the bookies were shot All round at 2 to i. Quot Aren t you sorry you did t take inv Little let a remarked his lordship after the race with Amile to the operator who had declined his offer. A ilme a Secretary must pass through As Many queer sensation As most men possibly More but or. Asquith it is not generally known has enjoyed one that is probably unique remarks a contemporary. Be has been cursed by the anarchists. Their malediction readied the right Hon. Gentleman the Day before his marriage. In the written Resolution the Anari ii to trusted that his wife would prove a it Nopar and make his life so wretched and miserable that he would be a Pablo to take his part in any Public business. This is introducing political Contr Verfy into the lome Circle in an unpardonable manner the curse caused More concern to the Home Secretary s Best Man than to the gentleman chiefly interested. As the marriage had been publicly announced the Clergyman in authority had conscientious scruple against an entire ticket audience. He was also afraid that the marriage might not be Legal if the Church were not open to the general Public. With the a curse ranking in Bis mind or. Ilal Dane feared that with tie general Public an Anan Hist of evil intent might enter and do dire destruction. Therefore he sought the scrupulous cleric to ascertain what number would Institute the a general hearing that 12 would appease All scruples the wily counsellor a it it Cut and carefully selected the requisite Cumber. There is surely material for the dramatist Here. But like Many incidents from real life if it were Shewn upon the stage people would say a How improbable How far fetched a sir William Vallance Whiteway k.c.m.g., the late prime minister of Newfoundland who has just been unseated on an election petition lodged against Bis return to the Newfoundland legislative Assembly on the ground of bribery and corruption Focas had hitherto a career of unbroken Success. He is a Devonshire Man who emigrated Early in life to Newfoundland where he was called to the bar in 1852, when in his 24th year. He became a . 10 years afterwards and has held office continuously for 21 years. His prime minister ship with which was unit gtd the attorney generalship extended Over a period of 16 years from 1878 till his dismissal two months ago. In 1891 sir William Whiteway was with the Leader of the opposition in Newfoundland and the speaker of the legislative Assembly selected by the Colony As a Delegate on its behalf to Lay a petition before the Imperial parliament against the passing of the Newfoundland fisheries Bill. On april 23rd, 1891, on the motion of tie Earl of Pun Raven sir William and his fellow delegates were allowed to appear at tie bar of the House of lords when an audience was Given to the Newfoundland Premier to state his reasons in opposition to the Bill. On May 28th,1891, the House of commons a in the motion of or. Staveley Hill ordered that sir Wiliiam Whiteway should be Heird at their bar. H settlement however of the differences Between to e Imperial government and the Colony of Newfoundland deprived sir William Whiteway of this privilege. The ill fated Kow Shing sunk last week by the japanese while conveying chinese troops to Cirea was built a correspondent says in Barrow about 12 years ago and was specially designed for trading Between Shanghai and tientsin. She was 1,350 torm and was the largest and for Many years the fastest coasting Steamer in the China seas. She was capable of steaming 15 knots but was always More or less of a a White ele Phant being too Large for to tientsin Trade As sin Drew 16ft. Of water alien leaded while there is rarely More than 12ft. On the Taku bar. Consequently she had to discharge Al out half her cargo into lighters a costly proceeding before being Able to Cross the bar and proceed up the Weiho Totie Tsin which is 65 Miles above. Taku. The Kow Shing carried Only seven europeans a tip Ain three officers and three engineers on Board a r Petty officers and quartermasters Teing natives if Manilla and the stewards and Ordinary seamen She had the most luxurious passenger renunciation Forward of the engines on the upper Oei a the state rooms in in g exceptionally Large and a i Ifo table. She was consequently a great Favourite with All who travelled on business or i Iea Siire on the of China and always had a Hgt a i complement of passengers on Board. During a inter months w Lien the port of tientsin is i Quot to. Mid from december to March she traded Tel Vien Haiti Hai and Long Hong.

Lis men who were Oil it her it week. During the Pranco chinese Quot a in 1884 the Kow Shing flying tie English Flag ran the French mail.-, Between Ploug Kong add it thaing. Lui Ming Chuan whose As com Mander in chief of the chinese forces has been announced writes an Eirmann tvs and Pat correspondent who knows him Wellis not exactly the Man one would expect to see entrusted with the command of a Large army on Active service for he is now in his 78th year. Lui first proved himself possessed of exceptional military ability during the Taiping rebellion when he served with the greatest credit to himself under general Gordon but it was As governor of Formosa that he first had full scope for the display of his great Energy and Arnii Ripstra Tive Powers. He was a it of cited Viceroy of that a Beautiful Island about 15 years ago and remained in Power until 1891. He had by no Means an easy time of it during his term of office As he had to put Down several serious risings of the warlike aborigines of Formosa who Are in a chronic state of rebellion against chinese authority. It was however by repulsing a Strong French Force which landed at Tams i in 1884 that he gained his greatest Kilos As a military commander. For this exploit he received the coveted a yellow jacket a a and Lio Suurs and titles were literally showered upon him. Ming Chuan is after i Hung Chang the Friend of the foreigners in China. In spite of fierce official opposition he constructed a railway and opened collieries in Formosa employing English engineers to carry out All his schemes. His Yamen and a considerable part of the native City in which it was situated were lighted by electricity and he was always delighted to Grant an audience and an attentive hearing to any foreigner in his employment. Though unable to speak or understand a word of any language but his own Lui Suh Crit a d to More than one English newspaper and employed an interpreter who had Little else to do but transcribe into chinese those article and paragraphs which he thought would his master who was thu.-, kept Well informed Oil All european topics of interest. On resigning the governorship of Formosa Lui Ming Chuan retired to Nankin his native City to enjoy the ease lie had so Well earned but like an old warhorse he cannot hear the sound of Battle without longing to take an Active part m it and he has consequently undertaken a responsibility which few men of his age would care to accept but which no living chinaman is better fitted to Dis Oliaree. Truth 6ays i am indebted to two officers serving to the West coast of Africa for a striking illustration of the mischief done by Allou ing the Queens uniform to be distributed All Over the world As an article of Commerce. These two officers Send me a . Worn by a slave Raider whom they recently captured near Ibadan in the Yoruba. Country. It is a Scarlet tunic of the Derly regiment adorned with two Good conduct stripes and although desperately dirty otherwise in fairly Good repair. The officers depose that a the slave Raider represented himself As a government official and obtained Money slaves and goods besides disturbing Many places All on the strength of this a stronger example could not lie Given of the necessity for stopping the traffic in a Tommy so cast off clothes. A curious Little incident occurred during the hearing of the Case of read before the local magistrates this week. The counsel for the prosecution stated t hat the prisoner was distressing the witness. Miss Kempton by looking at her. At the request of the presiding magistrate read accordingly turned his face away. This incident notes the Westminster Jnette recalls a somewhat similar one which occurred not Long ago before sir James Ingham sir James the just As he has been called. A prisoner was before him for cruelty to a child. When the Little mite was brought into the witness Box the prisoner glared at her. The magistrate ordered him to turn right about lace. The charge was proved and the Man got three months two months for the cruelty and a third for seeking to intimidate a Queens witness.

The new Viscount Ila Dinge says the it Raj and Post is a smart Soldier who holds the rank of Captain in tie Rifle brigade. Born a few months after the death in 1856, of his distinguished Grandfather better known As sir Henry Hardinge a hero of the Peninsular and sikh wars he a educated at Eton and subsequently gazetted to the rides. The Hon. Henry Charles Hardinge the name the new peer was formerly known by and his brother major the Hon. Arthur Stewart Hardinge of the Royal Scot Fusiliers have throughout Freir military careers done a great Deal to uphold the martial traditions of their family. The former served with the Camel corps in the Nile expedition and was present at the engagement of Abu Klea for which he wears a medal and two clasps also the Khedive s Star the other has seen a great Deal More service. He figured in the Zulu War with the expeditionary Force against the Boers in the burmese Campaign and with the Lagos Force in West Africa. For his services in the last expedition he received the Brevet of major. He wears four medals and four clasps. Three years ago Viscount Hardinge married a Niece of Inird Abergavenny. In appearance he is a Middle sized slight wiry Man with Black hair and Swarthy complexion. He is renowned for hit skill in the Cricket Field. With the present Viscount the pension of �3,000 a year granted to the first Viscount Dies. The Hon. G. N. Cut on visited Seoul two years ago. Tho Interior of the Palace he wrote in volume descriptive of his travels in the Par last is a bewildering series of courts and buildings crowded with a Medley gathering of soldiers officials ministers secretaries and lackeys. The two main courts precede a third in which stands the great Hall of audience where Are held the ceremonial levies of the Sovereign. This is described As grandiose in its massive simplicity and analogous to the throne rooms of the persian Kings from the Days of Darius to those of Nas red Din Shah. During the audience his majesty had upon his head a double tiered Violet Headpiece made of split and Woven Bamboo. His figure was enveloped in a Robe of Scarlet silk with Pla Strons of Gold embroidery upon the shoulders and breasts and a Gold studded licit projecting several inches both in front and at the Back. Or. Curzon proceeds to describe the King As Quot a Man of email stature and Sallow complexion with a thin Black moustache and tuft Thielow the Chin. His countenance wears a singularly gentle and pleasing expression indicative of much Ami ability of character and Many ins Tances Are related of his personal Charm of Dis position and bearing. 1 was received in a smash brightly painted Pavilion in the Palace where the King stood behind a table on which a hideous Brussels Tablecloth half can sealed a gorgeous piece of chinese embroidery below. Behind and around him were clustered the Palace eunuchs in court dresses. At the Side stood the interpreter with his shoulders and head towed in attitude of the lowest reverence relating the words which the King whispered into his ear. On either Side stood tie two sword bearers of state and at Little distance the ministers of foreign affairs and the Home office who upon entering the Pavilion had prostrated themselves and touched the ground with their Dean Stanley says the writer of a a Chat about handwriting a a in the ladies Treasury was such a bad writer that he could not himself read what he had written any length of time after. On one Occa Siou or. J. R. Green the historian received a letter from the Dean. It was a Long letter and that it was an interesting one or. Green did not for one moment doubt but unfortunately he found that he could not decipher one word of it. The Only Way out of tie difficulty seemed to be to Send it to lady Augusta Stanley and ask for her help and this he did. All that lady Augusta could do to assist him in deciphering it however was to Send it Back to him with the recommendation that it should be submitted to a certain compositor who could read even the most illegible of Dean Stanley a manuscripts. To the compositor the letter accordingly went but with no better result. Once More it was returned unde ciphered to or. Green who in despair took it to the Dean himself and asked him to read it. Dean Stanley looked at it Long and earnestly and at last he said a from its appearance i suppose it is about something in which i was much interested when i wrote it but what it was i have quite forgotten and to read it now is quite once at Eversley rectory Canon Kings a received a letter from the Dean. Mrs. Kingsley was very ill at the time. The letter arrived at dinner time by the evening Post. Or. Kingsley opened it and examined it for Many minutes. At last he said Quot i have every reason to believe this is a very kind letter of sympathy from Stanley i feel sure it is yet the Only two words i can even guess at Are a heartless Devil. A but i pause i pause to accept that suggestion As scarcely Likely under the circumstances a the death is announced of general Augustus Lames Pleasonton which occurred at Philadelphia on saturday. He was born in 1808. He will be remembered chiefly for his alleged discovery of the a Blue Glass cure a a craze which for some years held a vast number of people including Many of this Side of the Atlantic under its influence. In the year 1861 he a Gau a series of experiments on the action of different coloured rays Supern vegetable and animal life and after some years he claimed to have discovered that the Blue rays of the Sun were especially stimulating to vegetable life subsequently he claimed these rays had a marvellous effect in the treatment of various forms of disease. To published Many papers on this subject and a Book. The Blue Glass craze collapsed in the year 1878, previously invalids of All classes would sit for hours in the Blue Light from a window pane hoping for a cure. A curious betrothal advertisement. Apr years in the cub Chi a Etui us. It is As follows a notice is hereby agricultural not by a practical Farmer. The use of a Dagger hidden in a petition was not it seems original to the Assassin of president Carnot. Tie writer of a secrets from the court of Spain a recalls in the current number of the. New Komu a precisely made Union Queen Isabella of Spain on february 7tli, 1853, by a priest named Martin Merino. Tie Queen was proceeding in pomp to hear mass in the Palace Chapel As a preliminary to her a pc lurching a after the birth of the Infanta Isabella. As she passed with her child through the state corridor a a priest suddenly forced his Way through the halt barriers and throwing himself on Nis Knees before the Queen held out a petition to her supplicating by. The action of the priest caused no Surprise to the onlookers. But the Queen stood still As if transfixed without daring to move without daring even to cry out she had seen hidden away under the petition in the priests hand the Blade of a All that passed very quickly. The priest had rushed Forward with his petition and Dagger in his hand he had doubtless meant to strike the Queen just As she least Down to take the paper but seeing her there motionless before him he struck out sharply in the direction of Liis victim s right Side. The blow told but to slipped on one of the embroidered castles on the Queens dress and the wound was not mortal though still deep enough to have left Down to the present Day a visible scar a dozen centimetres Large. The would be Assassin belonged to the franciscan order. His politics grew More fanatical until like Caserto he came to i Eliveo in redeeming the world through the Dagger. A if there a Ere Only a dozen men like me in the world a he is reported to have said a the Fate of ii Manity would be entirely changed. Hat ams Corn. Ii is quite time the ingathering of the Hap Tnp pm completed but in different parts of the you atty then a a delay which can hardly be excusable although the showery character of the past month has undoubtedly been hindering without being destructive. We Are blessed with a Good toy crap and the chief anxiety is now respecting the com Harvest. Thero is not a question that the crops Are Bulky but they Are partially Laid and that cannot occur without at least some damage to the Quality and a certain reduction in the yield if however we get hot weather these disadvantages will be brought Down to a minimum. Crops want to Cut up dry at the Bottom for the Best Quality and a satisfactory yield to be obtained and when it is otherwise there is undoubtedly some loss both in Quality and in Quantity. It will certainly be a More expensive Harvest than last year but on the other hand it should under the More favourable Prospect Well repay the extra Ost. Probably tie slackness of other trades May he the Means in some instances of increasing the available labour Supply. Under the circumstances that will be a Benefit to Farmers in the speedy gathering of the crops. Potato Dis Kasm. The boat of agriculture have again reminded armours that what is called the sulphate of Copper mixture is useful in preventing or at least in Check i a the potato disease and that it is Wise to to e crops a dressing before the disease has detected. The Cost of the dressing which usually v iries from 8s. 6d. To 11s. Per acre for each application May therefore be considered As an ii i be against disease. As the disease usually its appearance Between june 25tli and the beginning f August there is now Little time to lose by those who intend to use the mixture. A summary of the test information in regard to the disease and the most approved methods of applying the mixture will be found in the present leaflet which can a obtained Post free on application to the Secretary Board of agriculture 4, Whitehall place s.w., sat letters of application so addressed need not to stamped. Screw cd avid Aba stick. It has been related by sir t. D. Acland that Tom second sit Benjamin Brodie said to him a the far Ming of England is a Long Way ahead of the science of agricultural chemistry it will take half a Cen i Ury for the science to catch the practice. A although More than a Quarter of a Century has elapsed Sines these words were spoken. Sir Thomas with his great experience is not sure that by the end of the half Matury science will have won the race. As it Points out the practical Man and the Mesa of to Renee both desire to get at the truth but different ends and by different reads. The business of the practical Man is to make or do sen thing he is always acting and dealing with a number of details Many of which Are not under his control. On most Points he has made up his mind comes to a decision quickly and has to wait perhaps a whole year for the result of his action. The Man of science on the other hand Aims at knowing rather than doing he tried not Soj Nuch to Deal with results As to account for them by Ted ing but their causes Nis first step is to accumulate and arrange in his head with minute accuracy the knowledge of other men of various Ages and lands. His next is to isolate some one Point which Little is known and to work it out he it bide his time and let a slow at arriving at conclusions. If he is Wise he will he cautious in applying them to practice. It follows that owing to the fact that tie Farmer and the philosopher travel by different roads they do not always give the same account of the country they travel through. Rut though there tie much difference on their Way of dealing with facts they Ean do much to help each other and at the present time tie leading men is each department have Learnt to respect the judgment of those in the other. A Quarter of a Century ago i can remember that it. to be the object of the Man of science and to lib Man of practice to ridicule the sayings and doings of Earh other. Since then both have Tiee ome Wiser and recognise that they have still much to it it learn. Nati Hai. In Ulm. Whatever else plants May be they Are certainly pumping engines and draw the water from below the mrace in quantities which an surprising. The difference in the dryness of the soil where a heavy crop Lias been grown and where the land has been Shew this statement to be absolutely True. Experiments have however Given Mera precise information upon the Point. In some old tests a single cabbage Plant of moderate Siss Elia led 25oz. Of water in the course of 12 hours so a very warm Day. In More recent experiments it has been found that Prass May give off As much As from 21b. To Sib. Of water for each Square foot of surface in 24 hours. Hellrigel to it it of a great Deal of trouble to ascertain How Many pounds of water various plants would transpire in the course it their growth when they were Well fed and watered in a District near to lie rain. In tie Case of Barley he found that for every it oui id of dry matter which it produced in the form of leaves Stem and Grain it. Elia led 3101b. Of water wheat gave off 3381b. Of water for every kit Ulm of dry material it made Oats 3761b., Beans 2821b., peas 2731b., red Clover 3101b. Summer rape 3291b, great As is the proportion of iter passed through the plants comparable to the dry matter formed it will be observed that the various drops do not differ so much As might have i Een expected from their outward form and Structure. It May be noticed however that the Legu-11 Inous crops on the whole appear to transpire less wat a than the cereals. The figures refer to perfect plants and it is remarked in reporting the experiments that when the yield of a crop is lessened by any circumstance that checks the growth the proportion of water transpired to crop produced is exceptionally High. A ski Ort. There has let Een a committee of the House of lords sitting for some time to take evidence on the marking of foreign and colonial meat and agricultural produce and in a report they have lately made there is one Good recommendation namely that be Alcris in foreign meat should be registered and that they should display a notice in a prominent i Ostion to that effect. That is however about the o ily one of service for it is on the whole m singular report it passes Over Many things which might be marked and hesitates to suggest that foreign fruit baskets should he marked with the place of their origin but proposes that English dealers should go to the expense of putting their initials 011, so that English fruit Sli Ould have a distinctive Mark. This is a strange inconsistency and would be unjust to the Home Trade while the foreigners would under the recommendation be allowed to practise deception whup they had the Opportunity in the same Way As they do now. Cheese might easily be marked but that is not proposed to he it done and butter Margarine and milk Are not dealt with but the very difficult task of marking every one of the millions of eggs which we receive from abroad is thought essential by the committee. Then the suggestion contained in the re Piort that parliament Sli Ould carefully consider the subject of marking foreign produce with a View of adopting Means of preventing the present fraudulent practices which they agree Are general. This is just what the committee were instructed to do but which they seem to have failed in. With the information at their command one would have thought they had a Opportunity to suggest and formulate remedies for the evils which Are known to exist in misrepresenting foreign produce As of Home growth and production. But it seems otherwise and that he committee have not succeeded in attaining the object for which they were appointed. Business abroad. Spain and French wines. A Bill has been voted by the Spanish parliament under which tie wine Trade will lie allowed to import free of All duties French wines necessary to mix with Spanish wines and turned into clarets for Export Trade. It is believed this will Transfer from French territory one of the most thriving industries hitherto carried on in Bordeaux and the South of France with the help of Spanish wines. Gardening.

The mayor of Swansea Lias forwarded to the German ambassador an invitation to the German emperor to run his yacht meteor with the Britannia and vigilant in the forthcoming Swansea regatta. A sice Little monopoly. According to tie few York Herald negotiations have been concluded in Paris whereby the Standard Oil company and the russian Oil companies Trust will Divide the world Between them for the Supply of Petroleum. The Standard company takes America. Great Britain France and Western Europe while Russia is to have Eastern Europe Asia and India each party to the agreement promising to abstain from trading in tie others territory. The Ghiseh museum. The egyptian government have published in the journal official an invitation to architects of All nationalities to Send plans for the new museum to be built at Cairo. The sum allotted for the building is equal to �123,000 Sterling and plans will be received at Cairo up to March 1st, 1895. A prize of �630 will be paid for the Best plan submitted and �420 will be divided amongst the four next in order of Merit. Architects wishing to compete can procure details by application to the ministry of Public works Cairo. Colonies and British Trade. The following is the text of the Resolution adopted by the inter colonial conference recently held at Ottawa on the Trade question a this conference records its belief in the advisability of a customs arrangement Between great Britain and her colonies by which Trade within the Empire May be placed on a More favourable footing than that carried on with foreign in voting the conference balloted by colonies and the Resolution was adopted by five votes against three the yeas being Canada Tasmania Cape Colony South Australia and Victoria and the nays new South Wales new zealand and Queensland. Another Resolution was adopted to the following of fact a that until the Mother country can Sec her Way to enter into a customs arrangement with her colonies it is desirable that when empowered so to do the colonies of great Britain or such of them As Are disposed to accede to this View should take Steps to place each other s produce in whole or in part on a More favoured customs basis than is accorded to the Liko products of foreign the following addition As suggested by or. Hofmayr Cape Colon was assented to a that for the purpose of this Resolution the South african customs Union be considered As part of the territory capable of being brought within the scope of the contemplated Trade state of Trade in Norway the report on the Trade in 1893 of Norway sent to the foreign office by Consul general Michell shews that that country like England his Felt the general depression of business severely. Shipping freights have been Low and the carrying Trade was considerably crippled by the Coal strikes in England a revival is however hoped for now. The catches of fish have been heavy but prices have been very Low and the Market greatly overstocked although in some parts the fishermen themselves have door very Well. The year 1893 cannot to regarded As having been favourable to the timelier Trade. Prices for planed Timber to the big ports on the West coast of England were at the i winning of the year �7 7s. 6dbut fell after the Spring to �7 2s. 6d. In october there was a slight Rise which also occurred in the Case of Holland and in prices for Timber from the Baltic ports. The stocks in England appear to be reduced so that tie prospects for next year Are apparently brighter but great precaution it necessary As the Market is weak. The Good state of the Wood pulp Market has brought Al it out the construction of new manufactories. If this should continue the Wood pulp Industry will run considerable risks. The consume to a of Wood pulp has been much the same As usual in Norway but the demand for it in England has increased. The Export to France was somewhat larger but this increase is no proof of larger demand As the import in 1892 was below the Normal. It had been generally expected that the higher prices for raw material would have brought about a Rise in the Price of paper but the amelioration which has been observable in some kinds of paper has not kept up with that in the Wood pulp and cellulose Trade. The manufacture of paper has in 1893 outgrown the demand and there is great Competition on account of Over production which thus keeps prices from rising. It cannot lie said therefore that the year 1893 was favourable to Tho paper Trade. The Industry in Woollen goods both in Norway and Sweden has been satisfactory though prices have been Low. Tie Sale has been slightly larger and factories have been Busy nearly All the year. The Stock in hand however is less than at this period in 1892. The factories that prepare Cheviot and suiting have on the whole been quiet though Trade was brisk but prices ruled lows piece goods for Persia. At York House st. James a Palace on monday afternoon the Duke and Duchess of York received the lord mayor and sheriffs of London who together with representatives of the City corporation came to present an address of congratulation to their Royal High Nesses on the birth of their son. After tie presentation of the address the Duke of York in reply said nothing could have Given greater satisfaction to the Duchess and himself than this kindness from tie City of London. He re Echord the Good wishes expressed for the future of tiie Young la Liucc. Quite the largest and most important import into the province of Yezid. Says our Consul at Isfahan is Cotton cloth in its various forms. Manchester is the chief source of Supply but. Some is Breight from Bombay mainly White sheeting. Small quantities also of Indian hand printed cloths Are imported. Prom Bombay too the major portion of the Cotton twist conies. Russia is now trying to find a Market in void and a Small Quantity of her prints Are annually sold in the place. These Are mostly Turkey red wills which although is inches narrower than the English gig is of the same character obtain a greater demand and command higher Price. 1 was told that As Long As a piece of russian stuff was in the Market no English print of like design could command a Sale. The reason for this is not far to seek. The russian cloth i titter stronger and More durable and of a Botte Colour whilst the dyes Are More lasting. This was nude apparent to me beyond doubt. The persian Wasant is poor and cannot afford to buy often. When he aloes buy he requires a thing which will after heavy Wear and Strong washing still hold together and keep its Colour. He finds that the russian article fulfils his requirements letter than the English although somewhat dearer and in consequence he buys it. Happily so far Tho russians have not printed specially for the persian Market but Only Send such prints As Are made to be sold in their own Home markets. When they take to printing designs for this special Market then we May have to face a far stronger opposition than we have at present. Bezel is the Centre of Supply for Khorasan and it even extends its Trade to Bokhara. In Days bygone afghan merchants used to come Here to Supply themselves with Manchester and other goods but the prohibitive duties put on by tie Ameer have completely stopped All such Trade. Some years ago Thero were native merchant Here whose entire business was done with Afghanistan but their Trade has now been entirely killed. A curious phase of Yezid Trade is that it supplies Kerman with English piece goods to the e extent of some �5,000 annually. Russia does not attempt to bring either shirting or sheeting. It manufactures Only such Good qualities demand a Price never to be obtained in Persia. Such of the above goods As come to Yezid come either from England or from Bombay. In the latter place they Are bought either by the native merchants or by the zoroastrians. Every native merchant with a fair capital deals direct with Bombay. During Tho last two years two european firms Havo disappeared from Isfahan his has not done such Good to the others As a a a a Rould appear it should have done. Those now remaining Are even too Many for the Manchester goods Trade offered in Ispa Liau and it would seem almost that some one of Tho others would have to retire to give a Cliance of fair business being done. If the firms Only worked in unison better results would follow but on Tho contrary business is conducted on such keen lines that so to speak Lii y Cut each others throats and in consequence As a Rule the persian consumer Lias to use one of their own expressions a their beards in his Luijs plants that were not allowed to Flower in the Spring but induced to make growth in brisk heat should now be Well developed specimens with hard Wood. They should enjoy cooler and More airy treatment with exposure to full Sunshine to further Tjarden and Ripen to Weir shoots. This will have the effect of bringing growth to a standstill and Flower buds will quickly form. Young plants or those that were Cut Back May be placed in larger pots. If this is done Wittmus checking the plants will soon Root freely in the new soil and continue to make luxuriant growth. Fully expose these to tie Sun and maintain the Structure in which they Are growing close and moist. Jse for a compost Good Fibre Loam one third Leaf Mould Sand and one seventh of decayed manure. Peat is not necessary in the compost for these plants. If the plants Are infected with scale or mealy Bug it Sli Ould be thoroughly eradicated now especially from the Early plants. Insecticides can be used stronger on those with firm Wood and mature leaves than can be done with safety after the Flower buds have commenced forming. It a Good plan to take the plants outside and Wash off the Bug with clean water and then thoroughly syringe the plants with Petroleum and water. Three ounces to each four Gallons of water will be sufficiently Strong to destroy scale. The application May be repeat at the end of a week or 10 Davs. Anti curium Andre anum Young plants raised from cuttings will have filled 5in. Pots with roots. These May be removed into 7in., using rough Fibre peat charcoal and Sand. The surface May be covered with living Sphagnum. The soil at thib stage need not be elevated above the rim of the pot. This can be done As the Stem grows and roots Are produced from it. Grow these plants under warm and moist conditions and they will soon attain sufficient strength to Flower More or less throughout the Winter. Pancratius these will be throwing up freely and will Bear removal to a cooler House without injury so that a More lengthened succession of Flowers May be had. Thrips Are usually troublesome at this stage of the plants growth. The plants can be kept Dean by a free use of the syringe but if they Are infested syringe or dip them in a solution of tobacco water. Havo just turned the stage pelargonium out of doors and after being exposed for a few Days the plants will be Cut Down cutting the growths Back to within two or three eyes of the old Wood. The Best parts Are saved for cutting a rejecting the Long jointed Pithy Wood. Small shoots with fresh Green leaves Root freely. Tie pots with the cuttings should be placed on a stage or shelf close to the Glass. About a Day or two after cutting Down the plants the wounds will be dried up when water May be applied to the roots. If there is no room for the plants indoors a Good plan is to place them in an exposed position out of doors but this does not answer in wet districts As an Over Supply of water will probably cause a a spot a on the leaves. The be6t place is near the Glass in a half Span or Span roofed pit. Air should be freely admitted at this season night and Day. When the plants have started into growth and the shoots Are about an Inch Long turn the plants out of the pots and shake nearly All the soil from the roots reporting in pots a size smaller than they had been previously potted in. Cineraria and Calce Larias require to be grown in a Low roofed Frame or pit and unless these Are shaded by some object on the South Side some slight shading Sli Ould be thrown Over the Glass to prevent the Sun from acting injuriously on the Fleshy leaves. No plants Are More liable to be attacked by red spider and none Shew the effects of it sooner. Fumigate at once when the pest appears. Flower gab Dan. A layering carnations layering is the surest method of propagating Border and other carnations and in Ico tees and the earlier this is done in August the greater the certainty of Well rooted plants being obtained. First loosen the surface soil round the plants to he operated on and then add a layer 2in. Thick of fresh Loamy compost to which Sharp Sand or Road grit has been freely added. Select moderately Long Flower less growths trim off the lower leaves and half Cut. Through at a joint where the Wood is moderately hard give the knife an upward turn so As to form a Tongue about an Inch in length and then carefully Bury the Cut part in the a Oil a rather Strong Peg being necessary for keeping it in place. In dry weather water should lie Given slim ver the new soil is approaching dryness and by the end of september or Early in october most of the layers will lie sufficiently Well noted to lie potted or transplanted. Choice Border varieties in pots May be planted out in Beds of fresh soil nothing Wing better than a Frame on an exhausted hotbed with the lights taken off and every suitable growth layered. These when rooted ought to be placed singly in in. Pots and kept in cold frames or pits till the Spring when they May be either planted out or shifted into larger pot. Seedling carnations and Pic tees. These if Given ordinarily fair treatment Flower splendidly masses of showy Flowers being produced during the summer. In most instances a considerable number of single varieties Are unavoidably included in every packet but even these Are attractive and serviceable. So freely do these seedlings Flower that the majority fail to form growths for flowering during the following summer and this necessitates raising a fresh Stock each Spring. If the advice previously Given on this subject has been taken tie seedlings raised this season Are now fit for finally planting out. As a Rule carnations and Pic tees generally succeed on a lightly raised Beds formed in a moderately warm Asci act. These May be 6ft. Wide with a 1ft.&Quot pathway Between tie Beds to hold five rows of plants which should be carefully moved from the boxes with a trowel and firmly replanted without burying the hearts about 12in.

Dahlias Dull showery weather is most conducive to Wood growth and Quot the plants Are generally late in flowering. If Quality or say a few exhibition blooms rather than Quantity Are desired both to lib leading growths and the branches ought to lie freely thinned and carefully tied to the stakes or otherwise showery Windy weather May break them. In order to obtain extra Tine show blooms Emly a few Flowers should in allowed to open at one time on a Plant All the Side buds being re moved from the leading grow the and the latter if it can lie managed should each lie staked uprightly some of the varieties also requiring to be sheltered both from heavy Rains and fierce Sunshine.

Quot if the weather is dry before the crop Rix is give the Border a Good watering. Wash the Trees occasionally and trap earwigs. Perhaps the easiest was to free the Trees of them is Tei place Short pieces of bean stalks or other hollow stems in different parts of the Trees and look them Over every second Day blowing the contents into a Brittle and replacing the tube s As before.

Small gardens and especially in the neigh Kier Hoot of Large towns Are usually dried up in this Mouth of Gohlsen Corn and poppies. Water must lie Given with no sparing hand and remember that one thorough soaking is better than a Hundred triblets which simply encourage surface roetting. The tender fibres quickly get dried up by the Sun and the Plant succumbs. In tie autumn a few remarks will be made about deep digging tie Best preventive of accidents from intense heat. Pick off Ripe see Al pods from snapdragons pansies and other Breiu vials. They May be in a shallow pan of Light soil and placed in a Cool Shady Corner of the Garden. Always water through a Tiue Rosed pot. If not done laser carnations at once thin out fruit on apples and pears where the crop is exceptionally heavy and be careful that All tall growing things like dahlias Are securely staked. Thin out the shoots As too much growth is made after a shh of wet and showery Westlur in particular. Everyone values a Good Sward of Green grass.
