FERNDALE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
FERNDALE. 17 have had a splendid fall of rain and it is the first good soaking rain we have had this year. The future of the young grass is now assured, and is growing splendidly all round the district. But the worst feature of it is, there will not be half enough stock to eat it in the spring. Two members of the south riding of the Warragul council visited the West Tarwin road this week. I think now we will have something done to it, as the coun cillors were quite surprised at the bad state of the road. The verdict of the Sea View perjury case has given general satisfaction round this district, most people being of an opinion that M\r. Graham never should have been conunitted for trial. I think in a case like this. before a person is allowed to take action he should be coin pelled to give security for costs, as it seems very unfair that a mlan should be put to such an expeuse when, perhaps, his accuser may be actuated by malice.
NEERIM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
NEERIM. Cr Hogan has had a long and trying illness, but he is now slowly recovering his wonted strength. Cr Riddell was also suddenly seized with sudden illness on the Wednesday after the council meeting, and for several hours was in great pain, so much so that I)r. Trumpy. of WVarragul. was telegraphed for; but the danger had passed when the doctor arrived. Messrs Maycock and M'Dougal have two teams of bullocks carting in black woodlogs from Neerimn East, and I hear they intend to send away over 200,000 feet of this class of timber, as well as a quantity of sassafras logs.

GEESE MANAGEMENT. HOW TO REAR GOSLINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
CEESE MANAGEMENT. l10Wi TO REAlR GOSLINGS. There is one branch of poultry keeping very much neglected by our farmers which could, by a very little attention to improv ing the stock, be made ti bring in a very much better return than it does at present. A sum expended on a few really good stock geese will soon bring in a good return, and, once pur chased, the stock birds will go on for many years in full health and breeding powers. I myself have kept Toulouse geese til they were over fourteen years of age, and only then gave them away, for breeding purposes, because I re quired thetm no longer, and when I parted with th it they showed no signs of age in any way. Geose are little use for breeding plurposes till they are two years old. The eggs of a year-old goose are seldom fertile, or, if fertile, the gosling either dies in the shell, or, if hatched, is A most delicate and puny specinen of Its race. Th;s does not apply to a year-old gander, as far as my experience goes. For table and...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
The municipalities of the colony raise amongst them no less a sum thanr L1,156,048 annually. Those, at any) rate, were the figures for the year 1898, just supplied by the Government statist, and it is probable that for last year. the returns were rather better. Of the surm mentioned for 1896 the Government sub sidy amounted to L111,967, which in cluded special grants, L12,728; tasxation brought in L881,143: and other sources~. L162,938. General rates yielded, rough ly speaking, about seven-twelfths of.the total, viz., L694,991, and special or extra rates L21,976. The amount received as equivalent from the Licensing Fund Act, 'about which a good deal has been heard lately, was L91,891; and weighbridge dues, collected almost entirely in cities, towns, and boroughs, yielded L46,403. Sanitary work brought in L44,008. There are several other sources of revenue. Such as various license fees for dogs, slaughtering, noxious trades, etc. The total revenue of cities, towns, and boroughs, was ...
THE DREYFUS SCANDAL. LETTER FROM M. ZOLA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
THE DR'EYFUS SCANDAL. LETTER. FROM MI. ZOLA. As Zola is scoring so decisively. the fol lowing,, which we take from a London Daper of 16t1h July. has a special interest now: I:cute:'s Paris agent telegraphs that the "Aurure" pu!-,llishes an open letter from .M.

STRINGHALT. AN AFFECTED HORSE WANTED [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
STRINGHALT. AN AFFECTED HORSE 'ANTED We have not yet been successful in obtaining a stringhalted horse for the purpose of sending the animal down to Mr. Kendall, the well-known veterinary surgeon. Mr. Kendall offers to conduct a series of experiments and endeavour, if possible, to ascertain the nature of, and remedy for, the peculiar phase of the disease which caused such severe losses to our farincis at the earlier part of this winter. When it is remembered that nearly 50 horses, valued at about .1800, died in this district alone from what may be a preventible disease, it will be realised how very essential it is to find out, if possible, a remuedy, in order to prevent the recurrence of such a calamity. MIr. Kendall will conduct his investigations free of any charge whatever, and otflers to supply the information gained by his ex periments, to the Warragul Agricultural Society, for the benefit of the farmers of the district. Will some liberal-minded farmer, or other llelllber of th...
THE GOVERNMENT GRANT. £150,000. AN EXPLANATORY CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
THE GOYERNMENT GRANT. £150,000. AN EXPLANATORY CIRCULAR. The Government in its Loan Appli cation Bill proposes.to assist fourth, fifth and sixth class shires in opening up Crown lands, and in providing means of access to railway stations, the amount allotted for this purpose being £150,000. A document circul ated in t Le islative Assem ly re Works gives the following inforina tion in respect to this vote : The fourth, fifth and sixth class shires are in number 29. As is to be inferred from their classification, they comprise the more inaccessible parts of the colony, hence their sparse settlement and consequent trifling revenues. But communmications and highways have to be maintained through them as much or more for the use of the general public as for the actual settlers, while from the nature of the country-consisting mostly of heavily timbered ranges the cost of road construction is of necessity greater than in the more densely settled and richer districts. These shires contain 6...
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH. At the invitation of the Rev. and Mrs. Buchanan the Sunday-school teachers of St. Paul's Church were entertained at an " at home" on Monday evening of last week. Music and'singing were indulged in, and the happy idea of being brought into close social contact, with their clergyman and his amiable wife, was highly appreciated by all the teachers present. A pleasant feature of the occasion was the presentation to Miss Porter, of a nice prayer and hymn-book, as a small souvenir from her fellow teachers, and as a mark of their esteem for her, and her work in the Sunday--school, during her residence in Warragul. A visitor to the Royal Agricultural Show informs us that the new disc plough and the combined seed and fertilizer drill, occupied the lion's share of attention on the part of the farmers, and to judge from the expressions of opinions that were heard on all sides, more especially with regard to the disc plough, the days of the share and mould board are numbered....
FRUIT AND FLOWERS TRANSPLANTING LARGE TREES. Success Depends on the Careful Protection of the Fibrous Rootlets. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
TRANSPLANTING LARGE TREES. acecess Depends on the Careful Protection of the Fibrous Rootlets. Success or failure in transplanting a large tree may be said to depend on the pzanner in which the tree is taken up from its old quarters. The one thing to be observed is that the young roots and rootlets are damaged as little as possi ble, as it is by these alone that a plant absorbs nourishment from the ground. In the illustration, from Amerioaii Gardening, is shown the natural spread of the roots as far as the trenches nariked H, which is the proper place for the dinaing down to be done. This TRENCHIING FOR. REMOVING A TREE. wouica leavo an excessive amounu ox earth iu the ball, which would render removal very difficult, and there is also the danger of the ball splitting in two,-and thus a portion of the fibrous rootlets are torn off. Practice teaches us that a smaller ball is better, and if the trench be made as at F a sufficient ly largo ball will be left. The error usually made is in ...
LOCAL LOSS OF STOCK. VALUED AT £2500. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
LOCAL LOSS OF STOCK. VALUED AT £2500. The bush fires of last sununer will be long remembered by many of the farmers in this part of Gippsland West, particu larly those residing in the exposed localities of McDonald's Track, where the pastures were entirely consumed, and where, in consequence, hundreds of cattle have died from starvation and exposure to the cold. We have succeeded in collecting details of their losses from many of the sufferers, and find their total loss exceeds 600 head, and that the value is over .t2500. The farmers affected, and the total of their individual loss, include the following :-J. Walsh, 110: Parkinson, 21; Clancey, 80; McCrory, 70: Simpson, 19; P. Rteilly, senr., 14; P. Reilly, jun., 8; Connor, 30; W. Henderson, 30; Jlrock, 22; L. Malady, 30; McFarlane, 6; T. Henderson, 12; McEvoy, 7 ; Hallyburton, 4 ; Sheehan. 4; Langford. 4; Worth, 60 ; Graham, 90.

During the season two race meetings were held-one on Boxing Day and the other at Easter. The Boxing Day meeting resulted in the club making a profit of £33, and the Easter meeting also showed a balance on the right side-about £5. This satisfactory pecuniary result has en couraged the club to make some very necessary improvements to the course, and about £50 has been spent in this direction, the work being supervised by the council's engineer. A number of other improvements are contem plated, including the planting of shade trees and providing seating accommo dation ...
ONCE UPON A TIME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
ONCE UPON A TIME. Two frogs found themselves in a pail of milk, and they could not jump out. One turned faint-hearted, and said to the other, " Good-bye, I sink, I die." Said his nervy, nousy chum, "Brace up, you duffer, keep jlunpin', and see what turns up." So they kept on jumping up and down all night, and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter, and, lo ! they escaped safe to land ! Applied to business, the froggy fable means this: The man who looks for bad times, and becomes dormant and faint-hearted directly the business outlook becomes cloudy, will not sur irve to see good times, for he lets a golden opportunity slip by. WTe have received for review the :first number of the "West Gippsland Gazette," a new paper published at TVarragnl. The letterpress, being from new type, is perfect, and the contents of the number display the energy and ability of the proprietors. The journal is an eight page one, and shou:d have a prosperous career. .1boriumburra 3ail.
Treatment of Hedges. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
Treatment of Hedges. The following from Meehan's Month ly is worthy of attention: Hedge plants that were set out last spring should not be cut down the coming season, but be allowed to grow for another year just as they like if a strong and vigoroun hedge be desired. The plants cut back when two or three years old will then sprout vigorously the next season, and during the summer following may be trimmed to the shape desired. It must not be for gotten that trimming in a measure weakens the roots. By letting plants grow for two or three years as they will we get these roots strong before the weakening process of trimming is ro sorted to.
Too Many Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
Too 3Many Varieties. The fault with many apple orchards is too many varieties, says Rural Noew Yorker. A few standard varieties well grown and prepared for market will make a farm's reputation, while, if the lot is split up into 20 or more varieties, there will not be enough of any one kind to establish a reputation. The same is equally true of a township or larger section of country. Let the farmers make a specialty of a few standard things that are best suited to that climate and locality, and they will soon make a reputation for the place. It is true that newer varieties should be grown in a small way for testing, for if that be not done we cannot know when improved varieties are brought out. For business farming the main crop should consist of a few varieties only.
Palms In the House. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
Palms In the House. It is an easy matter to keep a healthy palm healthy, but it is a difficult mat ter to recuperate a sick palm. Give the palms lots of water at the root, not a little drop, but enough at a time to soak the whole ball and begin to run out at the bottom, and if your room is warm do this every day - that is, if your palms are healthy. Once in two weeks or three weeks in mild weather take the palms out to the back kitchen or wood shed, or down cellar and sponge the dust off the leaves, using plain soap and wa ter. In a greenhouse palms are usually grown in a temperature of 50 degrees to 65 degrees in winter, and the atmos phere is moist, and they are watered liberally. But on account of the mois ture laden benches or floors 'on which the pots stand and the moisture in the air the necessity for frequent watering at the root is not nearly so great as it Is in the case of palms in a dwelling house, where the temperature is usually 63 or over, and the atmosphere dry.
POOWONG. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
POOWONG. The prospects of the coming season are more promising every week. Heavy showers of rain have fallen during the past few days, while the grass, especially the early sowings, shows an abundant supply of feed. Stock are improving daily. Many of the milking cows are in a sad state owing to their teats being burnt during the bush fires. High prices are ruling for any kind of dairy stock, the demand being brisk. Tradesmen's circulars of special and artistic design, for announcing the open. ing of new businesses, or the the expansion of old ones, are to be obtained at the ." Gazette" office, and will prove a profit able investment.
