GEMS OF THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
GEMS OF THOUGHT. Only :a word ; yet who can tell its power for weal or woe. Our acts make or ma r us; we are the children of our own deeds. Never think that you make yourself great by making others less. Many of our ?arcs :ire but a morbid way of looking at our privileges. A deep moral luirt leaves its traces as surely as a deep wound leaves a scar. Do not judge a man by his failure in life, for many men are too honest to succeed. Goad fortune caldonm comes pure and single, unattended by some troublesome or unexpected circumstance. Fortune turns faster than a mill-wheel, and those who were yesterday at top may find themselves at bottom to-day. It is unlucky that experience. being our best teacher, we have onlly learned its lessons perfectly w:hen we no longer stand in need of them; and have pro vided ourselves with armour we can never wear. A wise man carries all his treasures within himself; what fortune tgives she may take, but he -leaves nothing at lier mercy. I-IH stands fimm an...
THE HERO OF THE MERRIMAC [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
THE HERO OF THE MERRIMAC A few decals of ibte life of I.luctenant Rlobson, who sank-the Merrimac in the channel at Santiago undcer Spa.i??h ir:, are published in the Anerican. issue .of "The Review of Rieviws." It Is the nephew of a distinguished ex-Ministes of Spain, another uncle of his is mem ber of Congress from North Carolina, and cthers of the family have held the highest public unlces in the gift of a State. At the Naval Academy. which he entered at a very early ago, he settled down to duty and study in a serious, conscientious way. 1Ie wAs, indeed, toi conscientious to be a favorit. JIe gave offence early in his career- so the Aca demy tradition relates - to his cla s mates by his strictness, and up to his senior year could hardly be called popu lar. Curious stories are remembered which tell of his retiring nature, if not his isolation. But his faithful scholar ship gave him the first rank in his class, and that in an institution where rank of scholarship tells more than in ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
Somane time ago, in the court of a cer tain Scottish burgh, a man wa:s eharged with the theft of a pig. The worthy Bai lie, in sentencing the prisoner, remarked that pig-stealing in the burgh had late ly been too rife, and finished his perora tion thus:-"And, unless I make an ex ample of you it's very certain none of us will be safe."
GOD'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
GOD'S LOVE. Ou: reason's inmost echo cries, l:oth sweet and clear from earth to skies. Thou livest!" That frt liv from Thy dwelling-place. And if Thy wealth of boundless grace. "Thou givest!" Oh heart that bows 'nneth burdens great, Faint not in this thy low estate; Doubt never! The lov, that wraps God's trinity, In?.fa:,le Divinity, Flows ever. Mir Gladstone was always careful to get seven hours' sleep regularly. "I shoutil lilt- to have eight." he once said to MAir Lucy. I hate getting up in the rmorning. and hate it the same every ulrnilng. Jut one can do everything 1by habit. and when I have had my seven hours' ole, p miy Ihbit is to get up." Somtinme:.t hto\ever, he allowed himself a slight induilgnce, for on tihe morning after onte of his great speeches he re mained in bed several hours, reading a life of Savonarola.
THE FLOWER GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
TILE FALOWER GARDEN Advantage should be taken of the rain thlt has fallen to plant out any seed lints that are ready. Push on with' the sowing of hardy and half hardy an nuals. Sunflowers, of which there are a lar'ge variety, should be sown without delty. When planting these out in the hardy flower border, due consideration must b"- given tb the different heights of the va.rious kinds, of course placing the tallest at the back. The planting of hardy palms should be completed with the least possible delay. Varieties such as bri~hea, filamentosa, cocos plumosa, kentias, and coryphus, in variety, will add greatly to the appearance of any garden. A successional batch of glad ioll bulbs may be put in, affording them a rich, deep soil. Those that were planted as previously advised require to be staked. Camellias must also be given attention. As a rule they do not require much pruning, with the exception of shortening any strong growths. Those planted in bulbs that it is not desirable to m...

ABOUT ANGER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
ABOUT ANGER. Still, on this matrimnuial subject, much of the trouble, of course, is due to what is called incompatibillty of temper. Like a defendant husband this week, who would not have his dinner because it was a few minutes late, and flatly de clined his- tea because he hadn't had his dinner, one of the parties gives way to anger. How unwise that proceeding is learn from a medical journal in the following passages: Anger serves the unhappy mortal who indulges in it much the same as intoxi cants constantly taken do :h% inebriate. It grows into a sort of disease which has various and terrible results. Sir Rick artl Quain said not long ago: "Ile is a mr very rich indeed in physical power who can afford to be angry." This is true. Every time a man becomes "white" or red with anger, he is in dan ger of his life. The heart and brain are the organs mostly affected when fits of passion are indulged in. Not only does anger cause partial paralysis of the small blood vessels, but the heart...

TRAFALGAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
TRAFALGAR. The annual school examination, which took place recently, was of a very satis factory character, considering the many drawbacks ; firstly, the school having been closed for four weeks through scarlatina not long before the examaintion, then the overcrowded state of the school, render ing efficient work ahnlmost an impossibility. There were ninety-five scholars present in a room which will not properly acconi modate sevenuty. It is to be hoped the Inspector will word his report to the Department - in plain English on that point. The average only reached 80 as compared with 86 last year. At a meet ing of the Board of Advice held last week, the matter was duly considered and at the request of the chairnman, Mr. Gibblett, they visited the school in a body and found between 80 and 90 present, about one-third having to be taught out side, to the injury of health to both scholar and teacher. The concert in aid of the Mechanics' Institute was very successful, considering it was s...

BLOOMFIELD. The "cloud of depression" which has been hanging over us ever since the bush fires devastated the country, seems to be lifting at last, and everybody is brightor and more hopeful in consequence. The grass is growing rapidly, and there is a promise of plenty of stock this coiming season. The crops are all looking well some of them being nearly a foot high :lready, in fact the country around Bloomfield has not looked so well for the past ten years. The farmers who sent stock away in consequence of the scarcity of food are n;-b nut -owýing s a great scar re very reas a splendid promise of son.
DISTRICT NEWS. DARNUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
.DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS) DARNUM. General satisfaction is expressed at tho prospect of an investigation into the fatal and mysterious disease known as string halt in horses. The losses from this disease during last autumn are still fresh in the minds of your readers, and the in vestigation and its results will be watched with the keenest interest. The position held by JIr. Kendall as a veterinary authority will give the investigation a considerable importance, and the public may be assured that all that science can do, will be attempted, to get at the cause and provide a remedy for this dreaded disease. The weather still continues to behave splendidly. Alternate sunshine and rain in sutfficient quantities without excess, must ensure a full and plentiful season. Some doubt as to the manner in which the Government assistance to the 4th, 5th, and 6th class shires will be allotted, and some anxiety as to whether this shire will get its fair share is expressed in some qua...
