THE FUNNY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

THE FUNNY Sr'ORY. It was such a funny story ! how I wish you could have heard it, For it set us all a laughing, from the little to the big; I'd really like to tell it, but I don't know how to word it, Though it travels to the music of a very lively jig If SaUlyjustbegan it, then Amelia J ane would giggle, And elehetable and Susan try their Nery broadest riu ; And the infant Zccharia on his mother'a lap would wriggle, And add a lusty choruo to the merry din. It was such a funny story, with its cheery snap and crackle, And Sally always told it with so much dmra matic art, That 'the chickens in the dour-yard would begin to "cackle-cackle," As if in such a frolic they were anxious to take part. It was all about a-ha " ha and a-ho ! hb: ho !-well, really, It is-he ! he' he !-I never could berin to tell you half Of the nonsense there was in it, for I just reinember clearly It began with-ha! ha a! ha a !--and it ended with a laugh. But Sally-she could tell it, looking at us so denmurely, W...

BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

1BUSH FIRES. Large numbers of the selectors in the neighborhood of Warragul have been burning off lately, and during the past week the township has been enveloped in smoke daily. The acci dents resulting from these fires have: not been so numerous as might have been anticipated, as a certain amount of danger always attends the process of "burning off," a sudden change of wind being sometimes sufficient to cause incalculable damnge. Last week we reported that Mr. Somers had suf fered loss through the destruction of his house, but we have since learned that the huilding destroyed was used as a store-house, though at one time occupied as a dwelling. A son of Mr. J. O'Neill, of Wlrarra~n], was some what seriously burned through his clothes igniting whilst he was near a fire on his parents' farm with an elder brother. The little sufferer was con veyed to Melbourne for surgical treat ment, and is now, we understand, in the hospital and prodressing favor ably towards recovery. We regret to...

MAIDS V. WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

MAIDIS V. WIDOWS. A petition was addressed, in 1733, to the Governorof South Carolinabysixteen maidens of Charleston, which ran thus': - " The humble petition of all the maids whose names are underwritten.-Whereas we, the humble petitioners, are at present in a very melan choly disposition of mind, considering how all the bachelors are blindly captivated by widows, and our own youthful charms thereby neglected ; in consequence of this, our request is that your Excellency will for the future order that no widow presume to marry any young man till the maids are pro vided for; or else to pay each of them a fine for satisfaction for invading our liberties ; and likewise a fine to be levied on all such bach elors as shall be married to widows. The great disadvantage it is to us maids is that the widows, by their forward carriage, do snap up the young men, and have the vanity to think their merit beyond ours, which is a great impositioti on us, who ought to have the preference. This is hu...

A HOLIDAY TRIP. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

A HIOLIDAY TRIP, As Mlr. Patterson, the Minister of Railways, has signified his intention of granting further facilities to enable the settlers in the country districts to visit the Melbourne International Ex hibition, by repeating the excursion trains on each line, and Gippeland be ing the first on the list, we purpose giving a brict resume of a trip made by ourselves, which will serve as a guide to those of our readers who have not as yet made their promised visit. We know that there are several whose in tention it was to go by the last excur sion, but owing to the factof only two days being allowed on the Gippsland line many were disappointed, although having made every preparation; but this may have been for the best, as some may not have finished harvesting until now, and consequently they have now more time at their disposal. In the first place we will suppose that the visit will extend for at least four days, and this will be found to be qnite suffi cient. The station from wh...

THE WAR AT THE CAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

THE ,WAR AT THE CAPE. Some startling and painful news has been received froin tlhe Cape dur ing the week, namely, the defeat of Sir George Colley's forces by the Boers. With six companies General Colley bad succeededtin occupying the town of Spitzbok, but the Boers, who had at first been repulsed, obtained reinforcements and, their numbers completely overwhelming the hand ful of English soldiers the latter were defeated in a hand to band conflict, and only about. 100 escaped, Sir George Colley and many of his ofl;icers being killed. With reference to this subject "Lounger" in the "IHerald" says :-" The whipping which Sir George Colley, poor fellow, received from the hands of the Boers is consis tent" with the history of the British arms-in modern times at any rate, An over confidence in the conrage and skill of the British troops, and per haps a national conceit, born of honorable traditions seems to have in spired our modern generals with a very rash policy. We were thrashed at the...

EXHIBITION PEDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

EXHIBITION PEDLINGG. ---~- The present state of things in the Exhibition calls for the immediate at tention of the Commissioners, and prompt measures are required to check an evil which has, within the laet f':w months, grown to an extent which his become unbearable. We refer to a number of pedlars-we can call them by no other appeliation-who seem to have taken possession of the Exhibi tion, and to the annoyance, diagunt, and discomfort of visitors, render what should be a pleasant and agreenble stroll exactly the reverse. When the Exhibition was opened in October last regulations were framed and issued that nothing should be sold in the building except such goods as were manufactured there, and only then as souvenirs of the Exhibition. Several respectable firms tendered for the right to stamp Exhibition medals and manufacture jewellery, paying a high price for the privilege. These men conducted their business in a proper manner, and those who required sou venirs saw the process of ...

JOSH BILLINGS' PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

JOSH l ll JNrGS' PROVERBS. This life is like a game of cards. We must play the hand dealt to us, and the credit is not so much in winning as in playing a poor hand welL henuL hear a man bragging about what lie did last year, and what lie's going to do next year, 1 can guess pretty near what he's doing now. There is no wonum astationed on the face of the earth who tries so hard to do right, and fails oftener, than the average mother in.law. An enthusiast is an individual who be. lieves about four times as much as he can prove,and can prove -four times as much as aybody else will believe. Palling in love is like falling down stairs; it is hard work to find out how the thing was done.

FOX AND HIS TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

FOl ANiD HIS TIMES. There is no more striking c tapter in Mfr. Trerelyan's "Early History of Charles James For" than that in which the author gives a picture of Lindon society at the time when For entered the great world. The debauchery and vices of that day surpass the powers of a Juve. nal to fitly paint or satirize. Satire, in deed, loses its print among a people so shameless and degraded as the leading men and women of London societyin that portion of the Georgian era. The Min isters of the State "were conspicuous for impudent vice and. daily dissipation." 'rlu Duke of Grafton appeared at Ascot and at the opera with a woman whom he had picked up on the street. Rigby, the head of the Pay OLfice, had but one merit -" that he drank fair." L?rd Wey mouth, in the of?ice of Secretary of State, '" boozed till daylight, and dozed into the afternoon." His successor, tle Earl of Sandwich, " shocked even his own genera. tron by the immorality of his private life." Medmenham Abbey, fitted u...

A SLIGHT MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

A SLIGHT' MSTAKE. Those. curious personal resemblances which are not unoommon. have given rise to the popular belief that every man has his double somewhere in the world. I; appears that the double of an eminent professor of physiology, at the Berlin University is a hairdresser, whose shop is situated in the immediate neighbourhood of that institution, and who, well aware of his likeness to the learned . doctor. carefully'copies the latter in dress, bear. ing and demeanour. A. few days ago the professor was walking homeward from his lecture-room, when a gentleman en tirely unknown to him stopped him. in, the street, saying, "Follow- me to my house. I want you to cut my hair." The amiable professor, one of whose principles in life it has always been never to withhold from a fellow-creature any service that it might be within his power to render, meekly accompanied the stranger home, and there addressed him. self to the task thus imperatively pre scribed to him. Lickings professional ...

DESCRIPTION OF A PRAIRIE FIRE. (BY TIE EARL OF D?TCZAVEy, ta " TLE YINETEaiTH CESY TRY.") Two or three days after our return the fort had a narrow escape of being burn, up in the night by a prairie fire of unusual magnitude. The fire originated a long way if, down on the Republican river: but there was a ettfE breeze blowing at the time, and it travelled with mast amazing swiftness towards us. While it was still miles and miles away, the whole sky was lit up with a fiecee lurid glare, and, as it soon became evident that it was coming in our direction, energetic measures were at once taken to fight the foe. All the troops, consisting, if I remember right, of eight companies of infantry and two or three troopsof cavalry, were ordered out. and every other able-bodied man in the fort was requisitioned. The fire bore down upon us from the south with awful speed and overwhelming power. It was terrifying but grand to see it coming. The country to the south is very hilly, with long valleys ...

While still babies they became or phans, andl were adopted by the Br~nts, a childless couple. who quickly grew very fond of them. The llrants were always saying, *"Be pure, honest, sober, industrious, and considerate of others, and success in life is assured." The children heard this repeated some thousands of times before they under stood it; they could repeat it themselves long before they could say the Lord's Prayer; it was painted over the nursery door, and was about the first thing they learned to read. It was destined to -become the un swerving rule of Edlward Mills' life. Some times the Brants changed the wording a lit. tie, and said : " He pare, honest, sober, in. dustrious, considerate, and you will never lack friends." laby.

The Warragul Guardian. THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 3 March 1881

Iý, . ýYacauCr ...... an. THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1SS1. SOtME time since we referred in any ar ticle to the probability of tihe new Wsesleyan Church and the Church of England at Warragul going up side by side; and it seems that our predic tion and wish is likely to be fulfilled. The tenders for the Wesleyan Church wore dealt with some weeks since, but owing to some hitch in the signing of certain documents relating to the title to the ground, the comnmence ment of the building has been de layed. The intention to erect a Church of England seemed likely to be aban doned altogether, and from the tone of Mr. Sandiford's letter, published in our issue of the 10th ult., he evi dently deemed a "last appeal" abso lutely necessary. But that "last ap peal" (backed up by our more mode rately-toned article, Mr. Sandiford is kind enough to say), appears to have had the desired effect, for we now learn that the committee have decided to at once proceed with the erection of a church. The building will,...
