GUNN'S SAWMILL, AT CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 6 September 1898
GUNN'S SAWMILL, AT CROSSOVER. This sawmill is situated about 2 miles from the Crossover railway station, whence the tnimber is dis patched from the mill by means of a horse-tramn. .When Mir. W. Gunn decided to transfer his plant from Gainsborough to Crossover, some twelve months ago, he undertook a pretty leaaLvy.task. In the first place the train-line had to be laid through a net-work of diggers holes, and tne engine and boiler had to be taken along a road which, being the boundary between Buln Buln and Warragul shires, was in a shocking bad order for traffic. The engine and boiler h;ad also to be taken across a bridge which was so ricketty that MIr. Gunn had to renew most of the piles at his own expense. It will thus be understood that erecting a saw-mill in such a spot was no easy task. However all difli culties were surmounted, and a start made. All went well until the hush fires ravaged the district. Then mill work had to be suspended, and all hands were called upon to fight th...

THE MARRIAGE LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
THE MARRIAGE LAWS. On July 7th. in the Utpper House of Convocation, the Bishop of London pre Sented to the Uper HIouse the Report on the [Marriage Laws drawn up by their lordships and discussed by them at lIngth in private. No puili:e discussion took place, but the Ilishop of Lo:ndin moved, and the Bishop of Oxfoird sc onded, its adoption. The drift of the document may be ga th.,ered from its concluding sentences : "It ought in our judgment to be clea'rly end stro!lylv impressed upon the faith ful, and upon the clergy as their ad visers in the matter of discipline and conduct. that the Christian ideal is that of indissoluble marriage, and that the most dutiful and loyal course, even in the case of the innocent party, is to put aside any thought of re-marriage after divorce. But if any Christian. conscien tiously believing himself or hers21f to be permitted by our Lord's words to re marry, determine to do so, then endeavor should be made to dissuade such per son from seeking marriage...

The West Gippsland Gazette. WARRAGUL, SEPTEMBER 13, 1898 [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 13 September 1898
WARRAGUL, SEPTEM BER 13 1898 Warragul occupies a proud place in the list of prize winners in connection with the "Alan bequest " of the Presbyterian Church of Victoria, for the best" Biblical Knowledge" possessed by any scholar of the Sunday School belonging to that denomination, throughout Victoria. The classes for the examination are divided into three main divisions Senior, Intermediate, and Junior. In the senior division there were 199 com petitors, and among the highest we find the names of Miss Mary Picken, Warragul, with a score of 90-the highest being 98-and awarded the eighth prize. Her sister Miss Jessie Picken was a close competitor of gain ing the 9th prize on the " passed " list while a little lower down are the names of Miss Margaret Iothroyd and Miss Agnes M'Neil. Considering that the competition is open to all the Presbyterian scholars in Victoria, the triumph achieved by Misses Mary and Jessie Picken must be as graifying to their parents, as it is creditable to them...

MORE BLESSED TO GV?E. N.t to me he the gold of the strong, Or comnpassionate dole of the wceak, Give Ine t.nol the beauty of irvi:. The patience and ruth of tle wieck: Give nit soveetness unasked. as tile flower, Or softnieOs uIllstroked, as the dove. We but draw from the ono. indivisib!e Power, "For tlhe source of ouri' giving is Love. Have ye feared that in giving ye lose Or dreamed ye that patience may wane? Have ye looked for the beauty to fade, Or the heart's blood be offere.1 in vain? But draw front the full-speringing wvell That is fed from highi sources above, And garner your your harvest that summenlr may tell Of the multiplied riches of Love. There is that wtthholdtth, and, lo! Bare ashes where roses have been; There again is. that scattered abroad And wide acres are smiling and green. At1 favored of gifts, shall ye give, As God gives himself from above, For otlly the living eternally live, And only the loving shall love. --IMartha W. HItchcock.

THE CHAMPIt)N FAT OX. NEARLY 2,S001bs IN WEIGHT. THE GUESSING WINNER. Considerable interest was centred in the sale at Flemington on Wednes day of the fat ox which attracted so much attention at the Royal Agricul tuaal Show by reason of his being reputed to be the largest and heaviest beast ever seen in the colonies. After some spirited bidding the animal was knocked down to Mr F. J. Freame, butcher, of Port Melbourne, for the handsome price of £30. After the sale he was weighed, and was found to turn the scale at 24851b live weight. It will conie as a. surprise to many to learn that, after all, he was not the heaviest bullock in the show, and that a roan beast with a broken horn, owned by Messrs Widdis Brothers, and Which was not awarded a place, beat the reputed " champion fat ox" at live weight scaling 26301b. A not able fact is that an enterprising show man offered £50 for the "fat ox," but in view of the conditions of the guess ing competition held in connection with the beast,...
