A MAN LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 May 1895
A- MAN LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS. An elderly man named Russell Lorimer has been missing from the Dargo High Plains for the past month. Search parties have scoured the mountains in the vicinity, but without finding any trace of the missing man, and it is surmised that he has perished from hunger and exposure. When last seen he was commencing a five hours' ride, which he entered upon without taking provisions of any sort with him. Some years ago a miner named Jamieson was lost in the same locality, and though a diligent search was made his remains were not dis civered until nine months after. A stockman named Rutters is also sup posed to have perished similarly in the same cold and mountainous locality.

The Comte,' whoseifatther, tle Marquis, is still alive;; can boast of a very ancient lineage, budtt to put it mildly, is not rich. ,The bridesmaids' dresses were of white cloth; triinmed with sable fur, with 'large'black velvet hats, trimmed with black plumes and sable tails. They were designed by the bridegroom.: An exchange of a later date says :-The magnificence of the jewelled tiara worn by Miss Ahina Gould on her marriage to Count Castellane baffles all descrip, tion. The base only of the crowe was of gold, the gems-diamonds of the finest water, pigeon's-blood rubies, Oriental emeralds and pure pearls being set in platinum. From this splendid tiara depended a veil of. very, fine old lace; the gift of the Marquise de Ceastellane. The marriage gown was in excellent contrast to this, being oflwhite 'satin, simply trimmed with' lace and lillies of the valley. i The bri...

WHAT "THE ARGUS" SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 May 1895
WHAT "THE ARGUS" SAYS. Attention has been drawn by our Warragul correspondent to the 'unsatis tactory condition under which work has to be preformed by the railway employds in connection with the goods train on the main Gippsland line. His statement that the drivers, firemen and guards, " are on duty for 15 or 16 consecutive hours on three days in the week, and the remainder of the time are off duty altogether." is admitted by the chief mechanical engineer to be quite correct. According to the departmental records the hours worked by some of the men on four days lastmonth were as follows: -25th, 151 hours; 26th 121 hours; 27th 151 hours; 30th, 124 hours. Thus they were engaged for 56 hours in 4 days, and, although they would have three clear days off by way of compensation, there is reason in their complaint that their powers of endurance are put to too great a strain, and under the circumstances it would not be surprising that a driver has occasionally been found " asleep at his po...

C COY. VICTORIAN MOUNTED RIFLES. COMPETITION AT WALKALLA. -0- On Thiirsday evening last a team of eight members of the above company, including three from our local detachment, started on a journey to Walhalla to fire a rifle match with a similar number of members of the rifle club. there. The arrangements for f the journey were excellent, and the weather "made to order," and as most of the visitors had never made the trip before, they were. surprised and delighted at the sceneryand surroundings, both on the journey and on their arrival at their destination. Con. sidering the length and nature of the journey the visitors had uildertaken, it is hardly to be wondered at that they were defeated by the local team by a small majority, but the heartiness of their reception and the kindness they received from their opponents utterly deprived their reverse' of the least mortifiention, the members of the rifle club vieing with each other in their attention and hospitality to their visitors, ...

£50,000 FOR THE MUNICIPALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 May 1895
£50,000 FOR THE MUNI CIPALITIES. .Municipalities will derive some comfort, says the "Age," from the announcement that the Government intends to afford them assistance in the shape of a loan. The Treasurer states that one of the first measures of the coming session will be a bill authorising tne loan ot £'50.000 to borougns and shires. It is recognised that the great curtailment which has taken place in the municipal subsidy has prevented the shires from carrying out many necessary works, and thie £50,000 the Government proposes to distribute among them will be solely for the purpose of making roads and effecting other desir able improvements in the sparsely pop. ulated portions of the colony. It is not intended that any interest shall be charged for the accommodation, but the money will be repayable over a period of 10 years, the Government deducting it from the subsidy which would be ordinarily paid to those shires taking advantage of the loan. Both the Warragul and Narracan counci...
