Natural and Artificial. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
Natural and Artiflcial. I recently attended a recitation before a class in literature in one of the best known colleges in New England. I would gladly use the name of the professor in question if I had his consent, nor would it sound strange in any village in America. or for the matter of that in the Old World. In the course of the recitation the pro fessor said, "Young gentlemen, in your writing and talking I desire you to be per fectly natural and to avoid the artificial." "But how are we to distinguish between the two?'" asked one of the students. Without a moment's hesitation, the pro fessor said: "Here is a line from an ancient ballad: "'The aun hines fair on Carlislo walL "It might be said there is not much po etry in that, and perhaps there is not. The artificial school, however, world render it in this fashion: "The glorious orb, whichPheabusrolls on high, Shines with transcendent luster in the sky; And fast and fair the fervent sunbeams fall, Oh. stately Carlisle! on thine ...

A Sensible Legislator. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
A Sensible Legislator. George Peabody, the great philanthro pist, did not forget the state of Maine when he died. It will be remembered the body was brought to his native America, and every state legislature then in session passed fitting resolutions of regard and sympathy. The Maine legislature was in session at this time, and one of the members arose in his place and said, "Mir. Speaker, as an evidence of our esteem for the noble char acter of that great Iew Englander, George Peabody, Esq., late of.London, England, I do move you, sir, that the members of this house do attend the funeral in a body." The motion was then seconded, and it would have passed at once had not a watchdog of the state treasury got up on his hind legs and protested that he would not vote for the motion until it was de cided how the expenses of the members who attended the funeral were to be met. Here along wrangle ensued. Some de clared that the state should pay the neces sary bills, as amatter of course, bu...
A Rich Man's Library. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
A lich k Ian's Library. - Mr. Jacob Quigg, or Jake Qulgg, as he was called before he made a fortune in laundry soap, recently built a fine mansion near Prospectpark, In the city of Brook lyn. What the gentleman and his wife and daughters, who aided in the super vision of the structure, lacked in taste they made up for in ostentation. On one thing all were determined, and that was to outstrive their neighbors if it lay in the power of roney. It was not till the honse was built and furnished that Mr. Quigg and his wife bethought them that the gorgeous room known as "the library" had no books in it, and still relying on their dollars they determined to remedy thedefect forthwith. The next morning they stopped into a Fulton avenue book store and asked to see the proprietor. The proprietor presented himself, all bows and smiles, and asked what he could do for his visitors. "Well," said Mr. Quigg, with his eyes riveted on the books with the most gor geous bindings, "I've .got a fine libra...

FREE TRADE OR PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
S§FREE -TRADE OR PROTECTION. SSir,--In your issue of 20th December, appears a letter over the signature of Mai Hirsch. The letter may be amusing, but is not instructive. MAr. Hirsch professes to answer two questions propounded by "Protectionist," viz., How is the amount of nearly 18s per acre arrived at whicll Mr. Hirsch alleges to be the yearly cost of tle customs duties to farmers; and have not men engaged in certain other pursuits to pay the same ? The first question Mr. Hirsch answers by estimates, that he admits himself as being only approximate. A tub miay be approximately water.tiglht still if there is over so tiny a crack it will not hold water. As to the answer t. the second question, the mere fact of " baug iag" t lot of figures at peoples heads doec lnot answer o question. It may do very well on a platform but it will 'not s'tand cool analysis. As to the latter portion of Mr. Hirsch's letter, even if there is in. justice, I fail to see where the immorality comes in.

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
NOTES AND NEWS The establishment. of a bacon factory in the neighborhood of Warra gul has from time to time received a limited measure of public attention, and has on each occasion been allowed to .drop before the question had scarcely emerged- from its embryonic stage. There has hitherto been a lack of acquiescence in the proposal and evesi those who would be. chiefly benefitted by the introduction of such an institution into the district have failed to exhibit the shghtest eli thusiasm., Perhaps an error of, judgment was committed in the time chosen for bringing -the subject forward. The time may not have been " ripe" for the proposal. The suggestion therefore -fell upon deaf ears and quickly passed out of mind. We have reason to believe, however, that a more favourable reception would be extended to the.-proposal at the present juncture. Many of our lead ing men have become convinced that bacon curing on an extensive scale might be carried on with profit to the local community an...
THE Warragul Guardian TUESDAY, 9TH JANUARY, 1894. THE COUNCIL AND THE RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
TUESDAY, s JANUAIIRY, 1894. THE COUNCIL AND THE RAILWAYS. Tin .Warragul Shire Council has hitherto taken advantage of every opportunity calculated to facilitate the adoption-of local railway projects, and by acting in unison with the Shire of Woorayl has, in particular, demon strated its concern in the construction of the proposed- line from Warragul to McDdnald's-track. Matters, how. ever, have for some time now remained in abeyance. The times wero dead against a successful agitation in this direction, and conseqdently our muni cipal representatives could do no other than patiently rest on their oars. Re cently, however, a new scheme of rail way construction has been propounded' by the "Argus," and if the sugges tion is adopted the difficulty of obtain uing the requisite money for the pur poses of: a "national" provision of additional railways will be easily over iome. It is.proposed that the monies represonted by the Trust Funds should be invested in the extension. of our railway ...

GARDEN AND ORCHARD. I --.- CALENDAR OF OPERATIONS FOR JANUARY. (By Thomas Lang & Co. Nurserymen' and Seedsmen, 435 Bourke-st., Mfelbourne, who supply all garden and farm requisites.) -0-- In wishing a happy and prosperous new year to the owner and subscribers of this paper, we suggest that prosperity is largely due to self-denial and industry, -and that from an* acre of ground carefully and intelligently worked, there could be so much food raisedas would'keep an ordinary family from want, which, if not prosperity, is half-way to it, while happiness is to be found in making the best of our circum stances in life, and can be enjoyed by the lunmblest amongst us, and is not neces sarily an accompaniment of wealth and position. - The month is usually hot and dry and but little can be done without the use of water. In vegetables, a good return can be obtained by sowing French Beans, Turnips (Swede). Vegetable MIarrows, and Silver or Spinago Beet. Where water is available, the seed...
ROKEBY. NEW YEAR'S DAY FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
ROKEBY. -- (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) --0-- NEW YEAR'S DAY FESTIVITIES. A well attended picnic was held at Rokey on New Year's Day, pleasure seekers rolling up in. large numbers from the whole of the surrounding district - each bent upon having a thorough days enjoymoent, and the day being admirably adapted for out-door recreation, none were dis appointed. Swings were erected in convenient situations, and foot-racing, and many other amusements freely in dulged in. Refreshments seemed plentiful, and these were served at intervals. The visitors began to disperse about 6 oclock having had a most enjoyable outing. The site near the station is particually fitted for picnicking as Rokeby abounds in pretty shrubby dells and natural ferneries and scluded nooks where young and old love to congregate. A concert, held in the evenin in the railway shed was largely patronised the programme being of the most entertaning character, the following artists contributing a number of well executed items:-M...
CURIOUS INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 January 1894
CURIOUS'INCIDENTS. ----t-+ Some curious incidents are related by the Postmaster-Genreal for the United Kingdom in his report for the year ended in March last. He states that a lady requested one of the post masters to supply her with the address of a "-widower gentleman, rather short, wears glasses, with one little boy two years of age," and that the task proved too much for the resources of the past-office: A young woman who was about to dispatch a telegram was heard to remark to her companion " I must write this out afresh. " I don't want Mrs. --to see this untidy writing." Such ignorance; says. Mr. Arnold Morley, though rare at the present time, was common enough in the early days of the telegraph. At Ventnor a lady entered the post-office one evening and asked the counter clerk to .take charge of her poodle whilst she attended the service at a neighbouring church. The request was politely refused, much to the in digntiaon of the lady, who said in wrathful tones that she consider...
