ABSENTEEISM IN GIPPSLAND WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
ABSENTEEISM IN GIPPSN;AND' WEST. Si,--I was in hopes' that your recent effort'to arouse public 'interest in the question bf ihbsenteeism in" this part of Gippsland would have elicited a niorelhearty response, and would at least have been taken up by our' local counciil of the Narracan Shire. There is perhaps no shire in the whole of the Gippaslnd group which is more directly. interested in, the matter, and conscequently, no ;council:: that. should more readily supplementt the `efforts of the::Press to e.pose ,this' ?eiiou: oevil and'call upon Parliament to take measures for remedying the grievance. Grievance indeed! As though that expressed thi' result's atteiding the system. I improve ni} holding and cultivate my land.. I go iti for sheep :and grdwv. crops. 'And because my -neighbor is allowed - to harbor wallabies and dingoes I have my sheep killed and crops eaten. And it is called " a grievance." It seems to me that we farmers are awful fools for not rising in arins ,against the ...

FROZEN MUTTON TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
'FROZEN MUTTON TRADE. Sm,,-I wits pleased to see from your last issue that tlhe farmers seem to. be taking up the .'frozen meat industry in real earnest, and that another consignment of sheep is going from this. district duringtthe week. I feel so alsolutely certain of the suitable ness of the soil and climate of Gipps land for the purpose, and of the good returnslwhich await the-man who has the enterprise to venture in this -new directioni, that I sincerely hope the exaiimple iet by those vwh have taken the lead Wvill be followed by others at once, and that eventually the majority of our local farmers will see their way ,toenter on the trade. With some it is impossible at present. :They are financially hemmed in on every side and have not the spare capital requisite for embarking in the breeding. of sheep. I know of several men who only require the means and they will at once give up the conventional and non-paying methods for this far more profitable line. -For at while, there for...
PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
PLAIS AND PLAYERS., A performance of As You Like Itby a cast consisting entirely of ladies was given at the Prince of Wales Theatre, London, on Toes. day, 27th February. The minor parts of foresters and others were filled by ladies, as well as the more prominent characters. The entertainment, which is described as a very interesting one, was generally successful, for, although great care had been devoted to the production, it was a matter of physical impossinility for some of the actresses to assume the necessary masculine traits of several of the characters in the comedy. Miss Ferrar's Orlando is spoken of in terms of warm praise, as also the Adam of Miss anorland, whilst Miss Hope met with the accustomed success in the well-known Seven Ages speech in the character of Jacques. As Touchstone, Miss Sophie Larkin delvrered the caustic speeches more as feminine retorts. The" wrestling scene is spoken of as being exceedingly well managed. An orchestra of ladies provided the incidental m...

A VERY u.D SPELL. A good story of the danger of phonetic spelling is told by an Australian paper.

Cur, ass, you are a man of no legs, i wish tointer my bowie in your skull. A conference was held, and the writer, a newcomer, was visited by a body of inhabit ants, and asked indignantly to read his letter alond, and say what he meant by it. He read:-Ole Baumgartz, Esq.--' Sir,-As you are a manof knowledge, I wieh to enter my boy in your school."

Dosing Infants [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Dosing Infants A striking instance of the reckless practice of dosing infant children with opiates has been brought to light by proceedings before Dr Craddock, the Coroner of Pill, near Bristol. The inquiry was into the cause of death of Mary Ann Eodicott, an illegitim. tochild,four years old, who since a few days after her birth had been in the care of a woman named Butcher ; an allow ance beinc made for this service of four shillings, and subsequently three shillings a week. Mrse Butcher, with some reluctance, con fessed that, in order to save herself and her husband from annoyance, she had been it the habit of giving her little charge laudanum to "keep it quiet" every day. She began with "one drop," which the Coroner observed was suflicient to kill a child of ten days old, and as the doses lost their power on repetition she had gone on till little Mary Ann Endicott was actually taking ten drops a day. One Saturday the chdd was observed by this persistent drugger-it is her own acc...

Madam : "No; it was your other arm you had in a sling this morning." Agnes: "',ell, I want a husband who is easily pleased." Maud : " Don't worry, dear; that's the kind you'll get." Speaking of ecincidences, it is worthy of remark, that kiss, missa and bliss rhyme fe licitously. Birds of a feather wouldbetterflock out of reach of the bonnet maker.

Rearing and Fattening Ducks. REARING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Rearing and Fattening Ducks. P.EARINO. Rearing ducklings is one of the simplel 1p?:. ceases in connection with poultry-keeping, for, as a rule, when they are once hatched theyngie thrive amain without any special carer atte. tion. Ducklings reed no brooding, and, in fit', are taretter without it. Aftor they ate pi perly dry they should be placed in a :ah.d i: day or two, and fed on chopl:ed egg me.-d with bread crumbs, and moistened with milk, vased with boiled rice. Often when so treated they will almost be seen to grow, hut to attempt should be made to force thbm to eat until they are eighteen hci:s cld. The egg food may be continued until they are a -week old, if the weather i at all unfavorable, butin warm seaeeonsmar cear at the fifth day. After that such fo:ds, Spnt1t meal, oatmeal, rice, Indian meal atod boloy meal may be given, with as much variatlon a possible for the first four or five weeks. The object is to grow the frame on which to hy flesh afterwards, and this can onl...
A Silage Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
A Silage Crop. ~--o? The cow has been aptly described as an a mated contrivance for manufacturing foddi into milk. It is a fact that milk cannot be pr doced without food, and that the quantity yno quality of the milk made depends uproth, quality and quantity of the food given to the cow. Give her poor food in small qluantiy and she can only make a small quantity o pat milk. For this reason every owner of cos ought to grow cropsof nutritious fodder to be put down as silage for goving to the cows wha the grass begins to get dry. mixture of any kindof cereal with avetches or peas will msk excellent silage. The greater the miltore it nutritious foddero that can he got to tlower u the one time, the better will the cows like th silage, and the better, too, for the milk s?a for the health of the cows. Any green stuff th' cows will eat can be made into silge, b?lit will not be made any better for food supplvby putting it in a pit or stack. The most on. tritious gra=aea and herbs make the ra...

THE DAIRY. THE CREAMERY MAN'S NEW YEAR. Virtuous Resolutions That Pay the Man Who Makes Them. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
THE CREAMERY MAN'S NEW YEAR. Virtuous Resolutlons That Pay the lSan Who Makes Them. At the beginning of a new year the conscientious creamery man will stop to take a retrospect of the last year to see where he has been derelict in his ways of doing business, and where better and more improved ihithods should and could be substituted. To such the following list of resolves will probably be a welcome help. It is by no means an exhaustive one, but can easily be extended where occasion re quires: To do away with all haphazard and hit or miss ways of buying cream or milk, buy only by the test, and thus re duce this part of the business to a` just and equitable basis. To provide a good supply of ice, or rather an oversupply, so the butter maker need not scrimp himself in the use of it next summer. An oversupply of ice won't cost as much nowas an over aupplyofs noier heast will next supjner. To insist upon the use of ice by the patron, and to encourage by every means possible a more intell...

Fruit Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894
Fruit Notes. A New York horticulturist names the Primate as one of the best of summer apples. On account of its thin skin, the Worden grape requires extra care in handling and packing. Grafting wax made of beeswax and rosin, resdeied plastic by additions of alcohol, is uied and recommended by Professor Craig, of the 'Canadian experi mental farm. Mr. E. Williams. for fifteen years sec retary of the New Jersey State Horti cultural society, says that if he were re strtited to three varieties of grapes he would select Worden, Brighton and Niagara.
