ON HER HONEYMOON. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
ON HER HONEYMOON. Everybody knows that we were mar ried and came here for our honeymoon. The month I had with my wife before the dreadful day came when she died, would be a happy spot indeed in my life were it not overshadowed in my mind by the tflagedy that was to come. I have little to say in self-justification, but if is any consolation to her father for her loss. I can say that I truly believe that during that month she was as happy as I was. God knows I loved her with a love that was none the less strong that it failed in the hour of trial. Ethel was fond of boating. and on calm days we had often -alkenl canles out on the pool that the tide leaves behind it, and sometimes we had ventured on thet estuary. One day I had a headache, and said I v'ould stay at home. Ethel Ivan tled to stay with me. but I urged hli- toI go out and gel the advantage of a lovely day. So in the afternoon she said shet: wtould g on Lhc' wat-er. She v'as expelrt v.1ith a can, e. :m1. could swim fairly ael...

Bridget Nestor, residing at Trafal gar, said that on the 9th of August she and her daughter were in their garden sowing seeds. Defendant was cutting wood in her father's yard, and she saw her throw a stick over the dividing fence, which separated their garden from defendants yard.

Her child did nothing to pro voke the defendant, In cross-examin ation by Mr. Gray, prosecutrix said said she was not on good terms with defendant, but her own girls were not always " rowing" with other people. ...

MISSING STOCK. CATTLE "DUFFING" SUSPECTED POLICE MAKING ENQUIRIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
MISSING STOCK. CATTLE " DUFFING" SUSPECTED &nbsp; POLICE MAKING ENQUIRIES. During the past two months a large number of young cattle, have been missed by their owners, around this district. Although inquiries have been instituted in several cases, no trace of the missing &nbsp; stock has been forthcoming. Nearly 40 head, chiefly yearlings, have been report- &nbsp; ed as lost, within the past few weeks, and as the price of cattle is on the up grade, the loss involved, is serious. From all parts of the district the same com- plaint is heard, and the impression is gaining ground among the farmers that cattle "duffers " sharpers would seem a more appropriate term--are plying their nefarious trade in our midst. From Sea View Mr Herbert has lost 5 head and from Bloomfield North Mr Valpied, also reports the loss of 5 head of yearlings and 2 ponies. Mr Beardsley of the same locality has 6 head missing while Mr J. Whelan of Bloomfield in addition to several head of yo...
REMINISCENCES OF GIPPSLAND. IN THE EARLY DAYS. DROVING CATTLE THROUGH TRACKS BLAZED BY ABORIGINES. THE FIRST SETTLEMENT OF BULN BULN. HOW THE CROSSOVER GOLD FIELD WAS DISCOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
REMINISCENCES OF GIPPSLAND. IN THE EARLY DAYS. DROVING CATTLE THROUGH TRACKS BLAZED BY ABORI GINES. THE FIRST SETTLEMENT OF BULN BULN HOW T'HE CROSSOVER GOLD FIELD WAS DISCOVERED. (By AN OLD PIONEER). Having about the year 1854-5 sold to the late Hon. William Pearson a large draft of half-fat bullocks, then on my cattle station on Dandenong Creek, the name of which was " Tir katuan"-a native word meaning "land of the flying squirrel," since corrupted into "Kilkaton," I arranged to deliver them at Kilmany Park, on the Latrobe River. • This station I had visited in November, 1849, during the great flood, it being then under offer to me with 1800 sheep at 8s. per head. I went then and returned to Melbourne in the Thetis, a 30-ton schooner. The overland route was only a track blazed by the aborigines as the crow flies, over mountains, across numerous gullies, with un- &nbsp; bridged boggy creeks. My only fellow passenger was the late Dr. Arbuckle, who had just arrived from Engla...
NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
NEERIM SOUTH. The Tarago Sawmills which have been shut down for some time are likely to be opened for work again shortly, as it is rumored that Mr. J. H. Wheeler M.L.A., has negociated for tlhe purchase of the mill. If this rumor should prove correct, business in the Neerim district should receive a decided fillip, and the Neerim railway, which is now classed among the non-paying lines should yield a handsome revenue. The farm, "Hazeldell," lately occupied by J. I. Muir, deceased, has been let to Mr. Duncan, of Noojee, who will remove from that place shortly, and for a time manage "The Oaks" farm as well. &nbsp; We had a splendid rain last week and everything is looking well, farmers are now fully engaged planting potatoes, etc. The Measles are still very prevalent here, our State-school has been closed during the past fortnight, but should no fresh cases occur it is likely to re-open again shortly.
RABBITS. IN THE WARRAGUL SHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 20 September 1898
RABBITS. IN THE WARRAGUL SHIRE. The province of Gippsland, ani especially the heavily timbered portion: of it, have hitherto enjoyed a comn parative immunity from the depreda tions of the rabbit. In the western and northern districts of the colony heavy losses have been inflicted upon the farmers through the destruction of their crops by the rodent. To the hard-working tiller of the soil, whc has spent many days of arduous labor in preparing the ground for the reception of the seed, it must be ex ceptionally disappointing to see the result of his .laborious work being rendered abortive, just when the crops are full of promise for a good yield. It is this aspect of the question which presents itself very forcibly to us at the present time, for it is quite evident now that it is only a matter of time when the residents of this district will no longer be able to disregard the advent of the rabbits into this portion of the colony. In a conversation with Mr. Andrew Lillico, a few days ag...
HORSE PARADE AT WARRAGUL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
HORSE PARADE AT WARRAGUL. A horse parade, originated by Messrs Skews and Patterson, took place at the firm's sale yards on Thursday, when ten animals turned out for in spection. Unfortunately the weather was exceedingly wet and boisterous and consequently the parade through the township had to be abandomed. The judges were Mr W. Alford and Sergeant Fowler. Among the draught stallions honors were divided equally between F. A. Fechner's F'armer's Favourite and W. H. Morton's Prince Royal, whilst in the class for thorough breds the first prize was awarded to Mrs C'urran's Argonaut, the second to T. O'Dowd's Young Englishman, and the third to E. l)ohertv's Drouin. Dandy Junior was the only entry in the ponies and was given the first award. After paying over the prize money from the amount suherihed and collected by Messrs Skews and Pat terson, there remained a balance in hand of 7s (id. This sum will he handed over to the promoters of the forthcoming local concert in aid of the Children...

A SPLENDID EGG TESTER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
A SPLENDID EGG TESTER. '" ,, illustrate an egg tester which can not be surpassed for determining the fertility of eggs after setting, and also for ascertaining whethbr the chick is alive in its different stages from two or three days up to the time of hatch ing. By throwing out all the infertile eggs and dead chicks, whether in incu bators or under hens, a great saving of time is efl'fteC when the hatching sea son is at its height. By its use breed crs can also determine in a few days whether the eggs they are sending out to customers are generally fertile or not, and in this way make a saving to them selves and their customers of time, pa tience, and money. The tester is made by cutting a hole in the north side of a building, or a large dry goods box, aind having a mirror outside in such a posi tion as to rellect the sun's rays directly into the hole, and upon the eggs, held against it from the inside. The inside, of couroe, should be as dark as possible. Our illustration is so cle...
