THE PHILANTHROPHIST. A SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869

TRHE PHILANTHROPHIST. A SKETOH. I saw a man as through the streets I went, Wiho seem'd a perfect picture of content, Whose rosy cheeks betoken'd pride of health, Whose grand equipments plainly spoke his wealth, And as I stood a passer by observed That he from rectitude had never swerved. His chiefest aim, in fact his constant plan, Was to do good unto his fellow man. To him no widow e'er appealed in vain,' His greatest pleasure was relieving pain; His soothing voice would still the orphan's cry, And from his purse their wants he would supply. The wretched poor the ragged and onfed,. W\rould from his hands receive both clothes and bread ; Not like proud Dives, who, as the Scriptures tell, Denied the poor and went at last to hell, A ad when in pain for water loudly cried, Utto the very p:oor he had denied ; But this good man believed thit- wealth was given By God to man to help him on to heaven, And that if used aright would bring reward. So gave the poor that he might. lend the -Lord...

STEAM PLOUGH TRIAL AT THE EXPERIMENTAL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869

'STIAM PLOUGH TRIAL AT TIIE EXPERIMEVNTA4L FAR3. For the first time we have in the colony a steam plough on a plan, and with power enough, to show us of what this implement is really capable: We need scarcely say that this is one of Fowler's on the direct action in contridistifctioh' to the 'roundabout. prin ciple. The distinction is that in the one the gang of ploughs,; d-:iltivator, is drawn backwards and forwards between two en gines, while in the other only one engine is used, with'anchors and pullies tb guide the rope and implement to the different parts of the field while the engine remains stationary. By the latterplan, of course, very much of the" power is lost in moving the rope alone, hence the faildre of Homard's plough last year to do the work 'exiected of it. The implement now in question, and tried yester dayat the Experimental Farm, was imported by Wilkie, Welch, and Co. for Mr George Brazier, who intends to plough and break up land for the public by contract.
