THE Maragul 6uarbian TUESDAY, 17ai APRIL, 18u4. Women as Legislators. Tie ,iotien of Now Zealand have recently" been invested with the fraiiihise, and what more natural than thatirthey should now desire to enter Pariamennt ? The one is simply the comdiplement of the other. Being iicedupon the electoral roll constitutes thd stepping stone upon which they hoipe to rise to the cushioned benches of Parliament House.

A Bride's Refusal [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
A Bride's Refusal Another daughter in revolt. The Wel lington bride who vigorously exclaimed, "No, I won't. have him," when she was expected to bashtully whisper "I will," has caused quite a compre hensible sensation in social circles. The young couple who went all the way to the church oatensibly to be made one are well-known "society " people in the charming New Zealand city. Apparently the hitch was an unexpected one, although one sus pects that the bride had not been a very willing party at any stage of the proceedings. She probably yielded to pressure up to a certam point, but ulti mately summoned up courage enough to revolt-at the altar, it is true, but before it was too late. The report states that her father " remonstrated," yet that un dutiful daughter, as some ridiculous people would call her, persisted in her spirit of mutiny.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. Till Ethel Came. inoDnaU. Till Ethel came I thought the hall Extremely dull-the maidens all Most plain-the men a dismal lot Of bores-the rooms extremely hot. I wondered why I danced at all. I thoo-ht the orchetra too small; I felt il draught blow through the hball; I swore I'd go--then swore I'd not Till Ethel came. A wondroos change did then befall, The music Stranuss might well extol; The surface suited to a dot; Then stairs were cool when rooms were hot. I think I'd not been feeling well Till Ethel came. -"Life." 0

Cricket in Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Cricket in Western Australia. A correspondent sends us the following par., said to have been taken from the "Edinburgh Evening Despatch" of the 17th January last:-" Western Australia is advancing rapidly, but it seems to be still a little behind in the matter of scientific cricket. A match was recently played at Bunbury, Western Australia, be tweena Victorian teamanda scratch eleven from the neighborhood. The 'gum suckers' went in first, and the first ball bowled was skied into a three-pronged branch of a tall jarrah tree. The home team cried 'Lost ball,' but the umpire ruled that as it was in sight it could not be lost. The Victorians started running, while the WVest Australians sent for an axe to cut down the tree. No axe being obtainable, somebody brought out a rifle,and the ball, t'er numerous misses, was shot down. Sise score on the one hit was 286, and the Sdctorians' stood' on that, and put the tI.er side in. The Victorians won." Our correspondent asks us to say if this is tr...
ADVERTISING TRUISMS. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
ADVERTISING TRUISMS. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. -0 Don't expect an advertisemaent to bear fruit in one night. Bread is the staff of human life, and advertising is the staff of business. You can't eat enough in a week to last a year, and you can't advertise on that plan either. Trying to do business without advertis. ing is like winking at a pretty girl through a pair of green gogglecs. You may know what you are doing, but no one else does. Enterprising people are beginning to learn thie virtue. of advertising the year round. The persistence of those who are not in timidated by the cry of dull tiues, but keep their names ever before the public, will surely place them oin the right side in the end.
The French Revolution. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
The French Revolution. One of the effects of the new ideas which gave birth to the Revolution was to lessen the due respect of children to their parents and teachers. Another was that their familiarity with bloodshed ding led to its inevitable result, and their contempt of the horrors of the "national razor" showed itself in their playing with models of it, and their childish cruelty in using it upon living subjects. In his highly interesting work on the French Revolution, Mlr Alger writes that: Guillotines became children's toys, with which they operated upon birds, mice and in sects. Evenaslate as 1801 the Arras authori ties had to order the seizure and destruction of these toys, as " suggesting ideas of death which might render children ferocious and sanguinary." And at Paris in 179. a commissary suggested that children should not be allowed to approach the scaffold just after an execution (two murderers had then been guillotined), as this was calculated to impair their proper ho...
COMPLIMENTARY SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
COMIPLIMIIENTARY SOCIAL. Mr. and Mrs. Davey and Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd were entertained at a social in the Wesloeyan School.room on Monday evening, the former on being removed from Warragul to take charge of the school at Neerim South, and the latter on removing to Crossover. 1Both families have been connectcd with the church for a considerable timue, and Mr. - Davey, in particular. has been very active in pro. moting its interests and advancineg the social and temperance work associated with the denomination. His departure is jherefore a regrettable loss, and it was evident from the sentiments expresscd at the gathering that it would be dillicult to fill thie vacancy thus created. Testimony in this direction was borne by the I11rev. J. Thomas, Mr. C. J. Jones, Mr. R. Hillard and others, and the services rendered by Mr. Lloyd were also alluded to in gratify. ing terms. Bloth gentlemen subsequently acknowledged the kindly feelings expressed towards them, and the rest of the evening was t...
Bread in Ancient Days. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Bread in Ancient Days. Among the ancient Greeks bread was not simply an adjunct to, butan essential portion of the principal meal of the day. The chiefs of the heroio period lived almost exclusively on two dishes-roast meat (over whicha little flour was sprinkled) and wheaten bread. The flour was ground in a hand mill by the female servant; it was then made into dough, a portion of salt added, and baked in a special part of the kitchen. Wheaten bread enjoyed a great renutation in those days. Homer calls it the strength of man. Bread was the first thing et before a guest. It represented civilisation, whereas meat was representative of the old style. When Odysseus fled for refuge to the palace of Alkinoos, bread is epeciallymentioned among the "diahes" set before him. In the historical Hellas bread played a similar part; it was one of the principal foodsof thepeople, was regarded as indienssble by the better classes, and certain kinds of it were looked upon in the light of luxuries.

Abolish the Middleman. TtE success which has attended.thl exportation of butter from Victoria th Great Britian, has exceeded even th( most sanguine expectations. In al most every instance the consigment have arrived in good condition, ant have readily been sold at the highest prices ruling on the London market This is very satisfactory and encouarag ing to the exporters, who haye don: their best to foster the industry b; sending only the best quality. !3ui there is another side to the picture When the dairymen get the return. from their agents, the price quoted fo: their produce is very much lower that what we are accustomed to see quotet in the London market reports. Why Simply because too much of the profit; is consumed in paying the agents' com missions for shipping, etc., in Mel bourne and in London. The consign ments have to pass through so man hands that the margin is reduced to i minimum. Some may be inclined t say-' But how are we to avoid al this ? We must place tihe matter...
