MODERN BILLIARDS. EXPONENTS OF THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
MODERN BILLIARDS. --"--D EXPONENTS OF THE GAME. Some of my reaaers may sk why I should call this article "Modern" billiards, when the game has been known for many past generations. Bunt without going into the history of billiards, it is found that the game. as it is oowplayed, compared with the billiards of our forefathers of the last century, resembles a comparison of one of our present naval leviathans with the anciuet Noah's Ark. rcJxTIoN OF THE HAND SIIOWINO TUE Br.IDGL Billiards, if not a secience, is at any -rate a scienti?o game; for unless a man has a certain gift for it, all the practice and all the study in the world will never make him an expert; while, on the other hand, however great may be his natural gifts., it is absolutely indispensable that he studies the game. Some persons look' upon billiards with great disgust; but I fail to see why this should be, beyond the fact that it is generally at the Club or Hotel where the game is played-for it is only the favored few t...
POPULAR SCIENCE. Some Cold Weather Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Some Cold Weather Rules. Never lean with your back upon anything that is cold. Never begin a journey until breakfast has been eaten. Never take warm drinks and then imme. diately go out into the cold. Keep the back, especially between the shoulder-blades, well covered; also the chest well pretected. In sleeping in a cold room, establish a habit of breathing through the nose, and never with the mouth open. Never go to bed with cold or damp feet. Never omit regular bathing; for, unless the ekin is in active condition, the cold will close the pores and favor congestion and other diseases. After exercise of any kind, never ride in an open carriage or near the window of a car for a moment; it is dangerous to health or even life. When hoarse, speak as little as possible until the hoarseness is recovered from, elsethe voice may be permanently lost, or difficulties of the throat be produced. Merely warm the back by the fire, and never continue keeping the back exposed to th...
The Matabele Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Tha Matabele Campaign. --0 Mr Labouchere writes as follows re the 1latabele campaign : ly opinion is absolutely independent. It is-1. That the war was forced on Lobengula by the company because it could only stave off ruin by the seizure of Matebeleland. 2. That hiatebeleland is worthless, in the sense that the cost of administration must for many a year exceed income un less mininc gold in paying amounts can be found; and this has not been found. 3. That the war was waged in a fashion dis graceful to civilisation.- 4. Thatanyono who either relieves the promoters of the company of the one million shares that they have pre sented to themselves, or lends the ocmpany money by taking its debentures, is one of those persons to whom the proverb applies that "A fool and his money soon part," the present indebtedness of the com pany now exceeding any reasonable estimate of its assets. 6. That when any persons have gained millions from British investors by means of puffs the value of a conce...

About Names. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
About Names. " What's in a name 7" asked Juliet. If that young lady had been a practical gardener, instead of merely sitting on that balcony orerlooking the garden fooling about with young Romeo; or if she had (as many girls do) carried on a flirt?. on with the gardener, she ought to have learned that there is a good deal in a name. Confusion is caused by two or three varieties of fruits having the same name. The interesting fruit exhibition at the Melbourne Exhibition Building is going to change all this. Going to codify fruits names. Russia still has many odd and curious marriage customs. One is for the bride and bridegroom to race rapidly down the aisle as soon as the bridal procession enters the church, because of the belief that whichever places a foot first on the cloth in front of the altar will be master in the household.

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
FHE WIDE WORLD. Something like the incident in Caste wherein the young 3fiear returns as though nothing had happened, to the wife who is mourning him as dead, has been enacted in real life in Paris. The" Daily News" states that a man fell down in a fit in the Rue Ravez, and before he could be taken to a hos pital he expired. The bodywas identified as that of a newsagent named Peyraulie, carry. ing on business in the Rue Sanuche des Pom miers, and it was forthwith taken to the addres indicated. Madame Peyraulie, who was much afllioted when she heard that her husband was dead, identified the body and had it taken upstairs to a bedroom and deposited on a bed. The poor widow, as bhe supposed herself to be, lighted some candles, after the fashion in Roman Catholio countries, and placed them round the bed. She then remained for some time in prayer over the body. Soon after she went downstairs, however, she was thunderstruck to see her husband walk in in good health and spirits. Hehadheard...

MR. TUCKER AND DR. STRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
MI'R. TUCKER AND DR. SSTRONG. Very ihkely the creation of Utopiia is a pleasant way of spending Sundlay afternoons. From this standpoint Ir. Strong's discourse on land natioal;is,t. tion, following the Rev. Hlorace Tucker's deliverance in favor of State socialism, is greatly to be appreciated. It must be remembered that if lIr. Strong would deny the occupier tl.e ownership of the land, MIr. Tucker, ai a socialist, would kindly arrange that the men should only do half at da,'s work during each twenty-four hour;. The one speaker may be regarded as the complement of the other. If 3Ir. Tucker would nationalise the mines and the mills, why, Dr. Strong take, over all that is loft. The individual is to wither with a vengeance ! . poet writing on these plans and their pro =moters has said, " Natural to dream so; natural to wake and find the house in " ruins." As theologians these reverend orators are experts, but 'hen they venture into practical economics it is to be borne in mind that they...
