North Coalville Coal Company. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
North Coalville Coal Company. The half-yearly meeting of the North Coalville Black-Coal Company, was held at the offices, Lombard-buildings, Queen street, on Monday afternoon. Mr. C. W. Burford, chairman of directors, pro. sided. The report showed that the output for the past six months had been 2041 tons. This was a smaller quantity than that of the previous year, and had been occasioned by the reduced consumption of coal on the Gippsland railway lines. It was consi dered better to curtail the output, and supply at a price that weuld pay, than to deliver a larger amount on other lines at a lower price that might result in a loss. The minmng manager reported that the mine was looking well throughout. Economies practised had enablea the company to put coal into the trucks at a lower rate than heretolore, and, after paying all liabilities, there was now a credit balance in hand. The Chairman, in moving the adoption of the report and. balance sheet, said the No. 4 tunnel, which had inv...
AMERICA'S NATIONAL GAME. GAMBLING IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
AMERI?A' NAT(OHAL CGAME, GAMBLING- IN THE UNITED STATES. - In forming an estimate of character it is t important to know not so much what a man does duringhis working hours, when driven 1h by the lash and spur of necessity, as how he spends his' periods of leisure. There are h three forms of pastime so popular and wide. spread in the United States, and so little known in foreign countries, that they may fairly ba called typical American habits, follof sgnificance in any attempt to study Ameri- el cancharalter. Poker playing is essentially ti gambling, and poker players are gamblers. R Unfortunately, their truth has been much is glossed over until now ; poker, unlike faro or a roulette, has been invested with a garb of ji respectability and given *a certain status b in the land. A man does not g hesitate to say to his triends: "I o played poker all night ;" such n avowal r carries no stigma with it and his friends c merely smile. But the same man would be h reluctant to say, " I gamb...

Gold Discovery at Jumbunna. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
Gold Discovery at Jumbunna. Some excitement has been caused at Jumbunna by a report of a find of gold in a gorge between Jumbunna and Outtrim. One of the navvies working on the line washed a shoveful of gravel taken from the gully, and obtained several grains of gold. Great excitement prevailed amongst the men, and they are fossicking in the gully, and in several cases small quantities of gold obtained. Dozens of applications for miners' rights havo been made, and great expectations are enter tained,
The Flax Company. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
The Flax Company. Matters in connection with the flotation of the Warragul Flax Company are pro ceeding apace. The prospectuses will be ready for circulation on Monday next, and the articles of association will be sub mitted for the approval of a meeting of the committee to be held this afternoon. An important communication has been received by Mr. G. W. Anderson from a practical grower who has had twenty years experience in the industry in the North of Ireland, and who knows all the principal buyers and the chief markets of the world. Hesays : "I have no hesitation in saying if you go into it in a thorough manner, it will far eclipse, from a financial standpoint, any other 'crop it is possible to grow." This assurance, coming from a man of such extended experience, should be sufficient to allay the fears of the sceptical and in duce our farmers to enter on the project with redoubled energy and with every confidence in the ultimate success of the enterprise.

POPULAR SCIENCE. RECENT INVENTIONS. FOR THE HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
POPULAR SOIENOC RECENT INVENTIONS. 0- Br Eo?w " PunLezs (Phillips Ormonde and Co.) FOR THE HAIR. The wants of the ladies always command, espectful attention. And an inconvenience frequently experienced by them after leaving the bath need no longer be felt. For if we are to believe an English manufacturing firm there is now being introduced an article whereby the discomforta of a wet head of hair may be entirely avoided. The device consists of an article called a dryer which in appearance is something like a hair brush, though slightly larger in size and answering a different purpose. For with it the hair is not only brushed, but also at the same time both dried and burnished. At the end of the handle is a metal chamber of polished silver, in which is poured hot water. After the hair has received attention from the rough towel it is than stroked with the dryer, the best from which very soon remores all the remaining moisture and also imparts to the tresses a beautiful glossy face, wh...
ELECTRICITY AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
ELECTRICITY AGAIN. Another new application for electricity is announced. And rather a peculiar ono, too, for it is now called upon to answer the pur pose of the familiar old hot water bottle or bed-warming pan. But, of caurse, in a different way. For instead of the heat b.ing applied between the sheots, it is now trans. ferred either from the mattress or the quilt. Whichever of these is to be heated is pro rided with a length of wire -bent somewhat to resemble a gridiron. This is enclosed in s material which sets aso a piartial non-conductor, and is then finally surrounded with a coveling of either silk or wool. The quilt is quite flexible and the heat generated bythe electric current passing through the wireis elowly and agreeably transferred to the ocscpant of thebed. The amount of the teatln be regulated to a ninety, but should it erceed 150 degrees Fahrenhbeit, a fuse is at mce melted, and all unpleasant experiences are thereby entirely avoided.

An EnthusiastiC Chess Veteran. a-- Look at this old man bending over the hoard with no stake on the game but his heart. Was ever man more ecstatic? To him we are wooden images.

Stripper v. Binder. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
Stripper v. Binder. o- "A great deal has been said," writes Mr J. A. Foulds, of Boothby, South Australia, " on the many so-called advantages of the string binder over the stripper, much of which is indireetlt accusing the farmers of clinEging to an obso!etemnachine and wasting valouable fodder. It is stated that the crop may be cut by the binder twelve days before it would be ready for the stripper, but this is not correct, as wheat may be srripped just as soon as it is really fit for the binder, and the grain will ripen better in the heap than in the shook, for it will not bleach, as in the latter case. Care must be taken, however, not to heap the wheat up too much until it dries. Steinwedel wheat soon bleches without any rains, and could never be profitably cut with the binder, as the sheaves woued bse most of the grain before they reached the header. As for the lras of the straw as fodder, at present it is only an imaginary lose, as the climatio Wcnditions arc such that ie this d...

Tomboy. 0 for aswim thrc'- the running river, And one long pull with the boys at dawn! 0 for a ride on my dear old Rover, One tonne round on the grassy lawn: 0 could I watch the sun on the wide eea, And feel the cool foam around my feet t! 0 breezes wild, come blowing about me, And fill the Bush with your music sweet! Is it a week since we crosed the river, (Shallow and clear for the time of the year,) And found the wattles and tall red clover, Scenting the air from afar and near? Is it a week since we all went playing On the bent arm of the creaking gum ? Who would have thought that the old limb, swaying, Would lay the Tomboy crippled and dumb? Fred, were you frightened to see me lying, Silent and still in the dazzling sun? Poor little lad ! Did you think me dying? That was an end to our day of fun ! Did you grow tired of the journey weary, Homothro'the trees, and the long spring grams? Iheard you nay at the river, Dearie:- "We'll hbathe her face in the stream as we paeL" I slept t...
The Vineyard. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
The Vineyard. As the season for planting fruit trees is draw ing near, the work of preparing the ground for them should be completed without delay. In situations where the soil is deep and loose, or such that a spade or fork can be thrust down two ormor feet deep, very little pre paration will be necessary more than for an ordinary crop of roots or vegetables. On the contrary, however, where the surface soil from, say, eight or ten inches deep s underlaid by a hard, close and compact subsoil the case is very different, and much labormustble spent onit be. fore abeginner can hope or expect ever to have 1 the best results. In this class of soil, mere post holes for the trees will not do at all; a strip at least six feet wide should be thoroughly loosened to a depth of two feet with the subsoil plough and a strong team, and if the ground is flat and retentive of moisture, drains under ground three feet deep should be run between each row of trees. Every man that is in posoession of onl...

THE MOMENTALLIC ARGUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
THE M?OMEITALL!G AR( U MENT. An extremely interesting paper on this subject (says the "Economist" of the 9th March) was read by Mr Thos. B. Moxon the eminent authority on monetary. matters) at the meeting of the Institute ot Bankers on Wednesday last. At this time of day it is impossible to adduce any new argument on one side or the other of the bi-metallic con troversy. The arguments on the monome. tallic side are, however, put by Mr Mozon with great clearness and cogency, and as an indication of the force with which he presses them home, the following extract may be given :-" What, then, do they (the bimntalliste) propose to do, or, more accurately, what will their pro posals, if accepted, result in Is it not clear,/ that this effort to rehabilitate silver simply means that the gold standard countries shouldconsent to reduce the exchangeable value of not Cnly their money. hnt %!-c . .s , "l:::c,, n :S. .

MARIE. CHAPTER I.—HERSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
BY "FIRENZE." CHAPTER I.-HErnsoM . - No one could find out the history of Nurse Marie-that is, none of the hospital staff. That she had a story, a love story, they felt i certain; for Nurse Marie, with her beautiful face, and still more beautiful character, could not have lived thirty years without having a lover. So they speculated about her, as girls always will. Why had she that sad, far-away look in her eyes when she was alone, or sitting by thebedside of a sleeping patient, if it were not a trouble in her life that brought it there? Had she left her elegant home of ease and comfort solely for love of suffering humanity ? Well, even that was probable; for a moresolf denying, unselfish woman than Nurse Marie conud not be. She was loved by all her fellow-nurses; they would do anything for her; they in etinctively turned to her when they needed help, for they knew she would always make time to do what she could for :c But, though ever ready to t',o, them, to chat and gossip on gene...
A Lunatic Drives and Express. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
A Lunatic Drives an Express. --o An extraordinary affair recently occurred on an express train from Boston to New York. Shortly after the train had left Boston, and when it had obtained full speed, a passenger climbed from the forward car over the baggage cars and tender, and made his way on to the engine. He drove away the engine.driver and fireman at the point of a revolver, and then took charge or the train himself. With absolute recklessness as to consequences, he opened the throttle as wide as he could. The train dashed forward, and was quickly speeding along at a rate not far shorter 100 miles an hour. The cars rocked heavily, to the great alarm of the .passengers, who only be. came more frightened when they !earnt the circumestances. The driver and fireman, reinforced by a number of persons on the train, clambered back to the engine, and a desperate strugcle occurred in the cab before the man was fnallyoverpowered and bound. Altogether he had been rushing the train along at t...

THE UNWISE MERCHANT. One day when business ran down low Deep gloom sat onamerchant ~lbrow And dark as midnight was the flow Of thoughts revolving rapidly. That merchant saw a dreadful sight By fancy's dim and lurid light; fHe thought ihe saw the sheriff right Among his stock of finery. Ah! sadder yet his fears will rise, Ah I deeper yet will he his sighs; Ah 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. 6The WAU\'Am.L GUAoDIus andY.A.RAooN and TRAFALGAR EXPRESS offer exception ally good terms to advertisers.] SECRET SoCIETIES, both of a harmless and harmful kind, are more numerous in this country. than people beleive.

He thinks he under. stands human nature thoroughly, but he forgot that exceptions are usually required to prove every rule, according to the popular Ethel: " Explain, dear." M[ad: "Yon know how bitterly he is opposed to my engagement with Jack !" "Ethel: Yes. He wishes you to marry Mr Goldy." Mand: "Exactly. And his theory was that if he opposed Mr Goldy's smuit and favored Jack's, I would go contrary to his expressed wishes, and in that way everything would end as be desired. Well, I understood enough about his nature and ideas of human nature to know that ; and so when he denounced Mr Goldy, and forbade him to call on me, and expr?esad himself in favor of Jack, I surprised and disgusted him by oelerfully acqaiescing."

The Parting of the Seasons. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 3 May 1895
The Parting of the Seasons. • You came in a summer of glory, And burst on the coasts of the main, Asbillows, impassioned and hoary, Reform and surge forward again, When a fragrance exquisite swept onward, And a lustre of seasons of yore Bathed in the forelands and hills, and then forward O'er glebeland and moor. So the pulse of tle forestthrobbed lighter In the glow and the sunshine and rain, And the bloom on the blossoms shone brighter For the zephyrs that swept in your train; These gorlands, so slender, I give you, But born of the shades and the sun, Whose countenance, smiling, I leave you In the race thatis run. I, wafted by meadow and river, Am carried and hurried away; Though the ages roll on for ever, I dream through each dreamiest day: Their elffulgence and fragrance are lasting, Though the seasons are measured by hours, Yet these moments are precious in casting By the road a few flowers. Thus I pass in a halo of glory O'er the hills bathed in crimson and gold, Where the echo...
