She Kept a Varied Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

She Kept a Varied Supply. o At 9 o'clock the othereveninga bareheaded plainly-dressed woman about 45 years of age walked into a Grand River avenue drug store and asked: " Has a man been in here within an hour and asked for poison ?" "No, ma'm," was the reply. " Rather small man, with a red goatee and freckled face? " " I don't remember any such man." " Got a squeaky voice, and he'll tell you that he was tired of life and longed for rest." " h o; no such scan has been in here, ma'am." " Well, he may come. It's myhusband. Every week or two he tries to bluff me, and when h, finds he can't do it he threatens to poison himself. He went away this morning saying I would never see him again, and I would read of his death in the evening papers." ' SYe'm.,, " You'll know him the minute he walks in. He'll ask you for arsenic-ten cents worth of arsenic." "Yes'm." "He'll begin to blow about me while you are putting it up, saying as how I make life miserable and full of woe, and that he has decid...

The Utopian and the Practical [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

The Utopian andthe Practical A NUsnIBE of important and semi-re volutionary questions are at present disturbing the political atmosphere. The Rev. Horace Tucker has beenl propounding a delightful socialistic doctrine which has for its ultimate aim the re-introduction into this sinful world of that condition of unalloyed bliss which prevailed in the Garden of Edeii before the unfortunate Fall, whilst the Rev. Dr. Strong has been no less Utopian iin depicting the bless ings of " land nationalisation" and preaching.the joyful gospel of " salva tion through the spade." We are afraid, however, that the respective schemes of these enthusiastic divines are a bit too airy to stand the breeze of adverse criticism which the public will naturally blow upon them. They can only live in a sentimental environ ment. When submitted. to the stubborn test of cold practical experience they wither up as a sensitive tropical plant withers and dies in thechilly surround. ings of frigid' climes. There is a...

Patterson has done a deal in the way of retrenchment and deserves the thanks of .the community for his vigorous application of the pruning. knife to our national expenditure. lie, however, might go a step further and thus add to the colony's indebted ness towards him it a far more important seuse than merely relieving it of a costly annual burden. He might introduce a measure for the abolition of payment of members and modifying the remuneration: of Ministers. This would effect a saving of £30,000 a year,, and what is of greater moment still, would, in a very short time perceptibly raise thehi.orril -using the term in its broadest sense and intellectual standard of the Legislative Assembly.

Eggs of Reptiles. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

Eggs of Reptiles. Among reptiles the eggs exhibit great variety. The eggs of alligators are.elongated and almost cylindrical, evenly rounded at both ends, and about the size of an ordinary duck's egg. The eggs of the sea turtle are as large as a small apple, rounded, and have a flexible shell. Those of the snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) are much smaller, but als3 rounded. Those of the terrapins (Clemmys, and other genera) are oblong, as also are those of lizards. In the common black and yellow dotted American fresh water terrapins, and in the painted terrapin, the eggs require four years of growth before they are laid. Take a seven. year-old turtle of this kind; it will contain only very small eggs, all of uniform size. An eight-year-old tortoise of the same kind will have two set of eggs, one larger and one smaller. One of nine years will have three sets, the oldest set being the size of a small pea. A tortoise of ten years will have four sets of eggs, and in that year she w...

The Religious Question. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

The Religious Questions In times where the proportion of non church-goers to church-goers is rapidly expanding, one easily appreciates the reason for an inquiry which has recently been held in the city of Leeds. The local association of Non-conformist ministers sought information as to the religious habits-or the lack of them--of 50,000 families, 10.000 of whom declared they " went nowhere." A series of ques tions appears to hare been asked, and the " Westminster Gazette" repro duces some of the answers. They are decidedly interesting. Just such in fact as might have been expected just su1h as would probably be given if the same questions were put in the City of Melbourne. Here are a few of the reasons offered by paterfamilias for abstaining from public worship.: 1. "Thinks he wants fresh air, andgets it on Sundays." 2. "Too tired to get out on Sundays." 3. "Those who go are no better than they ought to be." 4. "What particular church are you con nected with?"-" Co-operative stores....

Someo body had killed a ebhild, and some of the neighbors suspected a negress in: the locality of having committed the crime. There appears to have been little or no proof-rather the reverse-against this unlortunate " colored pusson." But she was colored, and in some parts of the. United States that is enough. So these free and enlightened citizens of that great land on which a tyrant's foot dares not tread,. etc., etc., seized the negress, put her into a barrel filled with spiked nails, and rolled. her up and down a hall until she was nearly. dead. Then they took her out, hung her up to the branch of a tree and fired at her as a mark that soon became riddled with bullets. Of course, iothing was done to these men, nothing will be done in a state of society in which the part of the Eagle is too often played by the vulture.

Traffic in Child Life. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

Traffic in Child Life. --0-- From the fate of the anarchist V aillant the puiblio mind of France has turned to that of his infant daughter-" la petite Sidonie" and has made it the text on. which to weave a most opportune discussion on the "future of derelict childhood." Bad as is the outlook for the children of con vict parents in our own country, it is even worse on the continent of Europe, where poverty is deeper and the struggle for existence harder. Indeed, a child does not need to be born in a criminal home in Latin countries to have the sternest conditions meted out to it. The streets of our own metrono:is, to say nothing of those of European capitals gene rally, bear witness to this fact. There may be seen the itinerant Italian arab, forming part of the stock-in-trade of the organ grinder or showman, kidnapped from its Cala brian home (when not actually sold by its parents) and inured from its tenderest years to mendicancy, vice and crime. At tempts to put down this iniquitou...

HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

HINTS ON ADVERTISING Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scarted kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the necessary ex pen.es of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done at all. If you have a good business you should advertise, lest competitors should take advantage of the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is small you should advertise, and let the public know where you are and what you have to sell, that they may come and buy. Trying to do business without adver tising is like making faces in the dark; you may know what you are about, but others do not. The man who, without interruption can keep his name befcre the public, is constantly informing possible cus tomers who be is, where he is to be found, and what he ia* prepare...

Presentations. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

Presentations. By the Author of " Oanners and Rules of Good Society." Presentations at the early drawingrooms have so increased in number during the last few years that it has been found expedient this year to limit presentations at each drawingroom to 200 only. This restriction is of some moment to those having debutantes to present, as it is an understood thing that a presentation made be fore Easter is more advantageous, from a society point of view, than one made after Easter. A longer season is secured by an early presentation, and hence the crowded pro-Easter drawing rooms. This does not apply withthesameforce to ladies presented "on marriage," although they also prefer, as a general rule, an early presentation to one later in the season. Necessarily the list of names for presentation will rapidly fill, and therefore they should be sent, in at the earliest possible moment, to prevent disappoinlltment, now that the dates of the drawingrooms have been announced. As regards makin...

FROM THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

FROM THE CITY. -A penney a pound for mutton, good neck mutton, just think of it. How would the starving poor of London rush with their coppers to the butchers' trays whenl invited by such a spectacle. Yet this is actually the price at which good wholesome, sound meat is ticketed for sale on the butchers' slabs here. Primer joints cost twepence, in some cases three-pence. - Everyone thought the stock tax must increase the price of meat. It must, we said, check importation, and therefore prices will rise.. Yet as a matter of fact, it is cheaper than to my recol. lection it has been before; since 1857, and appears to be going down still further, until we may soon expect to find our butchers notifying "joints giving away to anyone that will take them." But what about the producers, who, I imagine, must largely consist of small farmers. At the present rates it would seem that the growing of meat must soon become as unprofitable as that of wheat. One of the ingenious mechanical toys of th...

Athens in Darkness. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 April 1894

Athens in Darkness, What fate is this that has overtaken the city that Byron loved! Athens has seen some of the most marvellous changes of fortune that the world has known; Athens, famed alike in war, in statescraft, in poetry and in prose; Athens, the somewhile mother of freedom and the home of tyranny ; Athens, the classic, the beautilul, the great, the degenerate. It is now Athens the dark. A pesky French company has supplied the city with gas. For the miserably sordid reason that its blessed bill is not paid, the supply has been cut off, and the city plunged into gloom. Was these ever such meanness ? Now had we the imagination of a certain morning contemporary, out of the dark- ness of Athens would we make to rise a brand new warcloud. Presently we should have movements of troops on the frontiers, and all manner of goings-on indicative of the determination of Athens to get into the light again or die in the attempt. But, alas for our stunted imagination, really we can see nothin...
