The Definition of a Girl Bachelor. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
-0o The Definition of a Girl Bachelor. 91" What," said the lady of the old school, looking ne from her magazine, "what is the girl b acheor? The only example of that type of femininity present said promptly: "' A woman who earns her living and spends it as she chooses." The male bashelor said unpleasantly: "The sort of a woman who insists upon pay ing her own car fares in the sight of all the passengers, and always waves you to one side while she bargains with caben and trunk carriers." "She is a woman," remarked the em broiderer, sententiously, " who sends her skirts to the seamstress for fresh braids, and her stockings to a professional mender for darn ing." " She goes to the theatre alone and sits in the top galls2', if she feels like it," said the "She's tremendously bright." averred the sub-freshman, who still cherished a youthful liking for intellect. " She's horribly self-sufficient," said the vain wcman. " She's thoroughly kind and sensible," said the mother of five small ch...
THE Warragul Guardian FRIDAY, 20TH APRIL, 1894. Rail versus Water. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
THE atragnI Gnarbian FRIDAY, 20rn APRIL, 1814. Rail versus Water; IF a business man who held an absolute monopoly in any particular line were to deliberately introduce into his midst an enterprising rival who would inevitably undersell him and do his best to cripple his trade, he would undoubtedly for the rest of his life enjoy the distinction of being considered a short sighted fool. Aind deservedly so too. Substitute our railway managers for the business man and we have an actual case in point. They have opened up a waterway between Melbourno and Sale, and to-day witnesses the ridiculous spectacle of our railway returns being greatly diminiished by the carriage of goods by water in preference to cousigning them by a more expensive route provided by the railway. The f paragons of the " best managed rail ways in the world " nave thus provided themselves with a rival with whom they have failed to compete and the i niational revenue has suffered, and is r sufferinigstill,in consequenc...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
The German Emperoria poseing once again as the patron of fine arts, (says a London paper). Looncavallo, the Italian composer, recently en:hanted all theatre-going Berlin with his opera, I Medici, based on a period in Italian history. It has now been his Majesty's good pleasure to " order" an opera of the same kind. taking for his subject an incident in German history. It has not yet appeared whether this incident is to be taken from the glorious period since Wilhelm II. has come to grace the throne of his fathers. Bet it onght not to be dlifficult for a composer to find plenty of dramatio situations in the historyof Germany during the last four years. A more difficult thing would be the selection of a Ecene from the embarrae des riheesees.
PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
PLAIS AND PLAYERS. The Beat Man, the new faroe written by Mr Ralph Lumley for Mr Toole and his com. pany, was produced for the tirst time on the 6th March last at Toole's Theatre, London. The now piece was written for; Mr John Wood originally, but none the less is stated to suit Mr Tooloe and his company admirablyr. Mr Toole is the central figure of the piece in the character of a more than middle-aged managing director of a railway company, who, despite the diffionlties of managing both the railway and the dissatisfied sharcholders, none the lees finds time to play the gallant in the quaintest manner. As may be supposed, this weakness leads the advanced Adonia, in the person of Mr Price FPuttlow, into many very diverting sitnuations, and most amusing dilemmas. One scene that creates great amusement is Puttlow's appearance at the house of one of the shareholders in the railway com pany. Sir Lovel Gage, who has rescued the chairman from a meeting of indignant shareholders, and has br...

Geo: 0: Inskip, it who had been invited to attend to read a paper on Oil Producing Seeds-a new industry. In the cour e of his remarks the lecturer said it was highly e desirablc, considering thel present serious depression and lack of work for the people, that any new industry that would be likely to assist in giving pro litable employment should be _en couraged, and it was the duty of oevery one to assist as far as lie was able is directing the enlergies of the people in such a way as would bring about a return of that prosperity whichj Victoria was so much in need of. His object I was to direct attention to the fact that there were seeds whlichli up to the present had been almost neglected, and which would give better returns tlihn wheat, and were in almost unlimited demand. Farmncrs were slow to enter iupon new industries, but when wheat was. selling at ...
THE ARREST OF JABEZ BALFOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
THE ARREST OF JABEZ BALFOUR, The accounts given from time to time by' the London press of how the arrest of the notorious Jabez Spencer Balfour was effected differ widely. From a report given by the "Westminister Gazette," it would appear that the eminent "philanthropist" was treated with a shocking rudeness by those into whose hands he fell. Our contemporary relates that Balfour was actually "seized in the open street, in the sight of everybody, audhis pockets were emptied on the spot, then and.there. He was then hustled into the'Goerinor's' carriage and driven to the police station. Arrived there, he was put into a -cell wihich was absolutely destitute of everything but its four walls. There was not even a stool to sit iupon, or seat, and yet he was de tainied there nearly three hours." A rue ful picturetruly. Perhaps the men con cerned in the arrest did not know what an' important scoundrel Bal four was. On the other .,hand, perhaps they did ; and the thought of what the Liberato...

Wife-hunting. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Wife-hunting. -o It Eeems that an entirely new field of in dustry has been opened to the energetio young man that will no doubt be emu. lated by the clever ybung woman. This idea emanated in the " wild and woolly" west, and seems especially suited to the sensible young woman who knows her ownsex well. It is that of wife-hunting. About one hundred young eastern men, who have gone to Perry, 0. T., and different towns to settle, and have prospered, find life very lonely, without woman's society. Of course, as everybody knows, there are no women to epeak of in there new townS. Therefore, the men have hit upon a novel plan. They have clubbed together and engaged a IMr Emmet Whitmor, of Peiry, to come east ant select wives for them, as their duties prevent them from coming in person. Mr Whitmer has in his possession the photo graphs of over thirty good-looking young men, who are pining for the charms of matrimony. ie is making a bee-line for the New England factory districts, where his st...
CROSSOVER DIGGINGS. ANOTHER MEETING OF MINERS DEPARTURES FOR COOLGARDIE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894
CROSSOVER DICCINCS. ANOTHER MEETING OF MINERS -0- DEPARTURES FOR COOLGARDIE. ----- (mnOi OUR OWN COIIESPOSDesT.) The yields from the alluvial claims in this district during the past week have been about the usual average, which average, I am sorry to say, is unfortunately small. There have been no sensational finds at Red Hill since the last nugget of 2oz.t.ldwt. Uigrs., discovered some little time ago, which makes the tenth " lump " picked up on this field within the past few months. There is nothing to warrant the number of new arrivals who have come to the district during the last week. The increase is attributed to the paragraph which appeared in last Tuesday's "Age," announcing that £450 worth of gold had been sent away from tihe district during the past fortnight. The importance of my statement will be recognised when it is taken into account that this field covers an area of upwards fifteen square miles, with a mining population of over 800, and even taking the £450 as within...
