THE OPENING OF THE CLUB HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 January 1881

THlE OPENING OF T?HE CLUB HIOTEL. The opening of a well-appointed hotel, such as Mr. Lefebrre has just erected in the main street of Warra gul just opposite the Atheneum, is an event of which we, situated as we are in a new and rising township, may justly speak with pleasure, as the es tablishment of another first-class house shows that confidence in the future prospects of the district is be ing inspired in the minds of those who have the means to make an early start, and are not likely to be dis heartened even though they have to wait a little while for a return. To celebrate the opening of his house \Mr. Lefebrre invited all who liked to come. as well as a number of his personal friends, to a free ball and supper on Friday evening last, and to say that the affair was a success would convey but an inadequate idea of the cordial manner in which the invitation was responded to. The arrangements were certainly a credit to 31r. and 1 rs. Lefcbvre and those who assisted them. The large...

TRAMWAYS AGAIN! [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 January 1881

TRA3WAYS AGAIN! BY "S." The Ministerial visit of November last instead of imparting that new life and zest to the tramway question that was anticipated of it, seems to have had an opposite effect ; for. while be fore that momentous occasion we did hear now and then of this important topic, yet since there has been never a word." Depending on the semi-pro mises then given by Ministers that "something would be done," selectors have evidently thought it their duty to patiently await the result. But "put not your trust in princes" is equally well said of Ministers of the Crown; moreover, persistence is always the spirit of success, therefore, if we are content to "dream the muddy years away," as a former correspondent re marked, we must not grumble if this something still remains undone. Itis all very well to have our municipal subsidy raised by a few hundreds for the purpose of clearing roads, yet this is not what the requirements of the district need. Such soft, loamy soil as ours, wh...

,PORPOISE:-S OOTING. Porpoise.shooting affords to the Indians of the Passamaquoddy tribe their prin cipal means of support. It is practised at all seasons of the year, but the fish killed, in'the winter are the fattest, and give the largest quantities of oil. The largest-sized porpoises measure about seven feet in length, and the girth five f?et, weigh 300 pounds and upwards, and yield from six to sevei gallons of oil tlhe blubber is about I- inch thick in summer, and 2 inches thick in winter, at which time the creature is in its best con dition. The blubber from a large por pbise weighs about 100 pounds. The Ihdians try out the oil in a very primitive nianner, and' with very 'rude but pic thresque 'appliances. The blubber is stripped off, then cut into' small pieces, shich are placed in a huge iron pot,'and melted over a fire.

In this factory are made all sorts of. neckties, from the plain printed calico Eghlnton which costs twopence to the brilliant satin scarf whish is sold 'at half.a-guinea.

CORRESPONDENCE. THE DARNUM RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 February 1881

CORRESPONDENCE. THE DARNUMT RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GUARDIAN. Smi,-Now that the above reserve is being surveyed with a view either to sale or selec tion, it will not, I think, be inopportune to direct the attention of the residents of this district to the necessity of at once bestirring themselves. The land, it will be remem bered, was reserved for railway purposes; but the Government not requiring it for those particular purposes, it was decided, at the request of two or three consecutive batches of petitioners, to throw it open for selection. This, it is admitted on all sides, was the original intention, and I take it that "the powers that be," in departing from it, have broken faith with the public. It may be said it were better to have the reserve sold than selected. All bunkum, Mr. Editor, nothing more; for a man with half an eye can see that capitalists alone will buy it; and what then ? Why theland will lie idle : the forest will remain in its primeval st-te ; ferns, as...

YARRAM YARRAM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 February 1881

YARitAM 1ARRIltiI. (FROM OtR OWN COI:rESPONDENT.) In my last letter I referred to the state of the crops as fairly encourag ing, and as I have made some very careful enquiries, I will give you some of the most minute particulars I can. Several of our farmers consider this the best season we have had; others say it is the worst; while there are many, who are anxious to represent matters as they should be, think it a very fair average season. In proof of this I give the following :-The lowest yield of wheat that has come to my knowledge is eight bushels to the acre, and the greatest about 28 bushels, thus leaving for an average a fair crop. Oats-I hear of no actual test having been applied, but the crops appear on the whole satisfactory. l'eas-The yield has turned out better than was expected, and many people are rejoic ing, inasmuch as they have got 28 bushels to the acre. Barley, too, what little is grown here, has turned out very satisfactorily, while many other cereals or farm pro...

TO THE RATEPAYERS OF THE BULN BULN SHIRE. PER FAVOR OF THE WARRAGUL GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 February 1881

TO THE RATEPAYERS OF THE BUL, BULN SHIRE. PER FAVOR OF THE WARRAGUL GUARDIAN. LADIES AND GENTLEIEN,--During the recent stoppage of the Shire Council's busi ness some sworn declarations were published in reference to the irregular meeting held on the 26th November, and as they pur ported to contradict my statement that the meeting was irregular, I expressed the in tention to answer them when the proper time arrived. It appears to me, however, that Cr. Fawcett's motion declaring the meeting to have been irregular, and which motion was supported by three of the coun cillors who had made the declarations, has done away with the necessity for me to com bat the statements referred to. With this explanation I should be glad to dismiss the subject by congratulating you on the ter mination of the dispute. Your obedient Servant, PERCY J. SMITH, President Buln Buln Shire. Feb. 1st., 1SS1.

DIROUIN CRICKET CLUB ENTERTAINMENT. The members of the Drouin Cricket Club have seen fit to take time by the forelock, and for the purpose of sup plementing their funds gave an ama teur concert and theatrical perfor mance in the 3Mechanics' Institute on Friday evening last, to a very fairly filled house. )e were pleased to no tice that considerable improvement has been made in the fitting up of the hall for such purposes since we last had the pleasure of being within its walls. A stage has now been erected and every other convenience attached, and although the cost has been very little, the surroundings are neat and will be serviceable for some time to come. The piano was kindly lent for the occasion by the Drouin Choral So ciety, and being entirely new gave a great amount of satisfaction, its rich tone being much admired. nMr. Star tup presided, and in opening proceed ings reminded the audience that the performance was purely amateur, and asked them not to be too severe in their cr...
