The Delahunty Fund.—Over £80 Subscribed. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
The Delahunty Fund.-Over £80 Subscribed. There is a prospect of the Delahunty fund being squar'ed up at last. It seems that over £80 have been collected for the purpose, and that after paying for the legs.and other expenses, there remains a balance of over £80. A .meeting of the committee 'and also others who subscribed will be held in the Shire Hall on Friday evening next, at 8 o'clock, rwhen a detailed balance-sheet will be submitted. It 'is proposed to presented and lists' of subscriptions give young Delahunty a start in the saddlery business with the balance in hand, and it will be for the meeting to express its opinion of the suggestion. It would certainly be a beneficent sequel to the original proposal, and would give the lei 'mmuhh-ni'eefedsst'eit' in life.
ENGLISH V. COLONIAL FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
ENGLISH V. COLONIAL FARMERS.' Cable messages have lately been re ceived stating that in view' of the agri cultural depression in England the Imperial Government was about to take: steps' to protect the English farmer against bountyfed butter and other dairy produce from Australia and, foreign, countries. It is.pointed out by the Agricultural department that the bonus dti butter exported from Victoria was discontinued a year or two ago, and that while a bonus of 3e a cwt. is given on cheese exported from Victoria, it is conditional on the cheese reaching 50s a cwt. A vpry little of it has brought the price. .:l There is therefore. not- much cause for com plaint by the English farmer against this colony, and especially so when it is remembered that thel bulk of our dairy produce, owing'to the difference in the seasons, reaches London when there is compairatively little being pro duced in. Englaud. Bread is the staff of hnumanlife, and advertising is the staff: of business,

Warragul Musical Club. A performance of Gilbert and Snllivan's comic operetta "Trial by Jury," was. given in the Public Hall, on Friday even ing by the WVarragul Musical Club, and passed off with credit to the members and uundoubted gratification to their zealous conductor--Mr. J. Dodds. The various characters were appropriately represented in the matter of "get up" and were capitally sustained by the following: The Learned Judge, (Mr E. J. Craddock.) Plaintiff, (Miss Whitehead.) Counsel for Plaintiff, (Mr. G. T. Wood.) DBfendant, (Mr. A. J. Love.) Usher, (Mr. A. Hancock;) Foreman of Jury, (Mr. E. Bolton.) Associate, (Mr. H. V. Howell). Bridesmaids :-Misses Kew, Colquhoun, Carter, Storie, Morse and Rickards. Jtirymen :-Messrs. Bolton, Walker, Rice, Fielder, Knott, and Jones. A simmer of merriment ran through the audience throughout the performance and they were evidently highly amused at the exceedingly funny nature of some of the situations.

THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. TUESDAY, APRIL 30TH, 1895. "Only a Broken-Hearted Girl." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
THE ZWargragul dueudilan WITH WHICH IS ISCOrPOIRTED TUESDAY, APRIL OTarnH 1895. , " Only a Broken-Hearted Girl." THnuRE is a peculiar touch of pathos attaching to the signature of the last letter written by Maggie Faulkner; the unhappy girl who was: deceived by a worthless knave and left to her fate with thatcallous indifference which characterises the conduct of these sneaking poltroons-" On.vY a broke~n hearted girl." The use of that little word '" only "--insignificant perhaps in the eyes of the casual reader--con= elusively indicates to the reflertive mind the utterly hopeless -and abandoned condition of her' thoughts. What didhe care-thecowardly wretch who brought about her downfall? What was it to hiin that she should bring disgrace upon herself and shame upon her family? He was free and would probably escape dishonor, and she-what was she 2 " IOxr a broken hearted girl? That was all. There is a piercing ring of sadness about a signature like that. It hits straight home tothe ...
THE UNWISE MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
THE UNWISE MERCHANT. One day when business ran down low Deep gloom sat onamerchasr -brow And dark as midnight was the fljw Of thoughts revolving rapidly. That merchant saw a dreadful sight By lann;'s dim and lurid light; He thought he saw the sheriff right Among his stock of finery. Ah sadder yet his fears will rise, Ah ! deeper yet will be his sighs; Alt louder yet will sound his cries Unless he advertise. Now, all who would a lesson learn, Look closely, and you will discern That advertising will return Like bread upon the waters.

CURRENT EVENTS. When Hillard, at the A.N.A., Said jury trials were perfect frauds, We little thought that Dodd's club Could play the same to please the gods. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
CURRENT EVENTS. [BY TAx O'SHANTER.] When Hillard, at the A.N.A., Said jury trials were perfect frauds, We little thought that Dodds's club Could play the same toplease the gods I thoroughly enjoyed the smoke night of the Natives, and only hope the tedium of the coming winter nights will be often relieved by similar little reunions. Of course, a few minor accidents are reported. Perhaps the most serious blunder was that of a certain handsome young bank clerk who, being mated with a man of whist, actually trumped his partner's trick the second "round." Most of the singing was truly high class. I have seldom heard a song so thoroughly enjoyed by the audience as was "Sweet Marie." While spell-bound with its beauty, I somehow began to reflect upon the curious phase of -human nature whereby each section of the community unconsciously accords its best support to the movement it is most interested in. Thus, all through the colony our race clubs have their most ardent supporters in publicans...
BEER AND PEER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
BEER AND PEER. Sir Thomas Bixton, the new Go vernor of South Australia, is a rich brewer by trade-or perhaps we ought to say by, "'profession," seeing that ha don't brew himself, but only draws his dividends from one of the wealthies breweries in the world. The firm in which he is largely isterested is that of Truman, Hanbury and Co. The stout is known all over Australia by its brand, the I.O.T. The ",G" is missing. I.O.G.T. stands for the Independant Order of Good Templars, and.they are understood not to drink I.O.T. stout. It is not a little odd that Buxton should have been appoint ed. The difficulties the Colonial Office have had in getting a man to take the office .have been matters of common gossip, and now we have the spectacle of the office in which Mr. Sydney Buxton, M.P., is Under Secretary appointing his first cousin to the post. One can imagine the pressure brought to bear. " Oh, cousin Tom, do relieve me of my difficulties by going out to that horrid horrid South Austral...
HOW OUR COAL COMPANIES THRIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
" HOW OUR COAL COM PANIES THRIVE. In consequence of the exposure in our columns of the profits made by the Coal,Creek Proprietary Mining Corm pany at Korumburra through the monetary aid given by the Government in the carriage of its coal overthe rail ways, the Premier intends asking the company to forward him a copy of its balance-sheet, so as to ascertain the amount of capital invested in the company and the sum paid in dividends. Mr. Turner added that when ihe took office he found that his predecessor, Mr. G. Downes Carter, had placed £14,000 on the Estimates to recoup the Railway Department for carrying Victorian coal at a loss, and as he considered it was the outcome of a promise made by the last Ministry, he kept the amount on the Estimates when revising them. lie, however, intends looking closely into this matter before placing any sum on next year's estimates, but at the same time he is disposed to assist coal companies which expend a -fair share of profits in developing thei...
THE PREMIER IN COURT [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
THE PREyMIER IN COURT During the progress of the. great gunbranding cases Mr. Purves, Q.C., has taken frequent advantage of the OPPortunity to "chaff" the Premier, Lho,assolicitor for the defendants, has been a notable figure in the court during the trial. On Friday the chance came in connection with a gold medal which the defendants claimed to arve been awarded for guns. at the Centennial Exhibition, but which they alleged had been mislaid. Mr. Purves took the view that if such a medal had ever existed the first thing the Abra bamses would have done would. have been to weigh it and see how much it ias worth. "If," he said, fixing Mr. urnmr with his glittering eye, " if . Turner will produce that medal ?!lorraw, I will pay income tax on o? o sally which the audience re ce with a roar of laughter, and -rhich even the Premier seemed to appreciate.
A DESERTED MOTHER AND FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 30 April 1895
A DESERTED MOTHER AND FAMILY. Sl,--The case of Mrs. Johnson, a respectable and deserving married woman who, owing to being deserted about seven months ago by her heartless wretch of a hasband, and left with four helpless little children, the youngest about six months old, is one that calls for some practical sympathy on the part of the charitably disposed in this community. I visited her home, near Duggan's gate-house, yesterday. I can vouch for her being a clean, tidy, industrious person, and unlike some recipients of charity I have known, e is in every way economical. She is, and has been for some time past, solely dependent for the maintenance of herself and children upon what she gets from the Ladies Benevolent Society. I learned from her that she has been in receipt of four shillings per week from this source Well, sir, these are times of retrenchment, but I hardly think four shillings a week is utlicient to provide food and clothing for Mrs. Johnson, who does not appear to be ...

KINGSTON v. TURNER. SOME PRETTY THRUSTS. -0 Mr. Turner, Premier of Victoria, and Mr. Kingston, Premier of South Australia, have commenced a batth on paper which may seriously iminpe the advancement of the federation cause. The former wrote to the latter a week or two ago and towards the end of last week the reply of dIr. Kingston came to hand. It is a ter. cleverly written production and is fdt of cutting sarcasm, Referring to tho various difficulties which beset the path, the South Australian Pretmr unloosens himself as follows: "May I say that my difficulty has nc been diminished by the profusion 01 rhetorical embellishments which characterises your reply ?

He commences by hurlhingeertain insinuating invectives at w:'" "olea head" (better wood than w?er, " Subsoriber "), and next accuses me of insulting certain members of the .i:hncon by styling them " birds of p ,ssae" I have often heard peregrinat iing perso' spoken of as such, in fact, the expression is generally used at some sf the valedictory banquets that so often le epheein our midst, so whoever takes -mrbrae at that must be very thin .:itnued.

OUR LETTER BOX. \We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressed by correspondents under this heading.1 THE ATHENiEUM. TO THE EDITOR Sin,-Asa well wisher of the above I cgret to see that a serious difference of opinion exists both in the committee and with the subscribers regarding the pro ped alterations. Now judging from ie hints in some of the published letters there is a danger, whichever party carries ts point,of a serious loss of patrons. The point in dispute seems to me is -hetther the subscribers actually are in fver of increasing the present debt or no. Ore party points to the resolution at the general meeting, while another replies, 'l-ly, there were only three of the ublic there." Now, to call another tceing, as some suggest, would be very ittle good, for there are at least fifty easrons why fully half of the subscribers n:est be absent on any one given date. l:ere is. however, one way out of the glicuhl, which I beg to submit ...

On returning to her home about three months ago certain indications in her condition aroused the suspicion of her parents. and it was understood that the marriage between her and Johnston would take place at Easter. For fully two months prior to Easter, however, Johnston had neglected to write, and the unfortunate girl, becoming dis tressed at her conditi...
