POLITICIANS AND THE TRUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894

POLITICIANS AND THE I TRUTH. Galileo is credited with the observation thatall truth lies in the alphabet. Un- p happily, so does all lying. Which the I common source furnishes forth in the ' greater quanitity nowadays we would not 81 like to say. lMost people will " have ' opinions" on the subject. And, however P much these opminions vary in the ab stract, there would be no difficulty ins obtaining a very general agreement that a the searcher after truth only wastes his fi time by pursuing his investigations in the n field of politics. Iic et ubique! It is l1 pretty much the same wherever you 3 go. Admittedly, the temptation to E lie is strong, and poor humanity is usually weak. The Press, too, while pluming itself upon its own truthfulness, is, by its inquisitiveness. a prolific cause of the barefaced lying done , by politicians. For the newspaper t4 always wants to know so much-wants I that information, moreover,; at critical v periods, just when it ill suits the interest v of par...

Plucky Women and Midnight Robbers. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894

Plucky ,Women and Midnight Robbers. .The householder who is awakened from his first sleep to observe standing by his bedside an up-to-date Bill Sikes,'equip ped with a crape mask and armed with a revolver, is usually justified in the con clusion that the odds are against him. When the said householder proceeds to hand over. his loose chaige, his watch and his ring, and then submits to a cross-examination as to the state of his overdraft, everybody understands that these acts are the abnormal offspring of external pressure, not the legitimate chil dren of complaisant generosity. More over, even though he be something of a fighting man, he is net generally blamed for "giving best," as the phrase is, to the person with the shooting-iron. Yet, in view of a couple of recent cases, a suspicion of doubt may be raised as to whether the knuckling-down poliey is always the best. The two cases to which we allude are remark able in showing, not the heroic man, but the plucky, determined woman. ...

No Show For Him. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 20 April 1894

No Show For Him. The tempest howled. Sheets of lightning flashed across the ragged sky, illumined for an instant with dazzling brilliancy the world, only to leave it in deeper darkness a moment later. The thunder rattled, and the rain, borne upon the wings of the fierce gale, beat cruelly on the lone traveler. There were holes in his shoes, yet he pushed forward bravely. "Mayhap," he muttered to himself, "'in the bousee where shines yon light Ishall find comfort." He quickened his pace. - Anon the hit of radiance in the Cimmerian blackness grew stronger. "Hope on, hope" He paused. He was rooted to the spot. For the space of severel ,ninutes he stood there. Then he turned with a groan and plunged again into the storm. "\o!" he exclaimed. "I must not-in trade upon his misery. Even I am not the unhappiest mortal in the world." Beside the little beacon toward which his steps were bent he had seen a man standing and eating a biscuit off the win dow sill He knew at a glance they were clea...

SILVER ORE AT JAMIESON. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

SILVER. ORE AT JAMIE SON. Some time ago attention was drawn to a dicovery of native silver near Jamieson in the vicinity of Wood's Point. The Secretary of Mines has now received a report on the discovery from Mr. A. B. Ainsworth, mining surveyor in that district, giving the result of observations made by him during a personal inspection of the find in Silvery Creek. He is of opinion that the rock with which the silver is associated , will prove on assay a bituminous ore of great rich ness." Mr. Ainsworth adds that " the richness of the ore is apparent to the least experienced eye ; its extent, how. ever, remains more or less a matter ol conjecture." He estimates that the lode will prove from 10 feet to 12 feet wide. It is entirely under water level, and pumping appliances would thei: fore have to be erected before it could be tested to any depth, Mr. Ainsworth concludes his report with the remark that there can be no possible doubt as to the value of the ore, but states that until a...

ECONOMIC PORK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

ECONOMIC PORK PRO DUCTION. It is a fact worth noting that while the price of grain has declined all the world over, the price of well-fed pork in the English market is as high to day as it was last year or for many years previous. This gives the pro ducer of pork a decided advantage in the way of profit, and the wonder is that more attention is not being given in this country to the conversion of cheap wheat into the more valuable products of pork or bacon for export. A great change has come over the public taste for pork. Excessive fat, formerly desired, is no longer popular in the home market, and in order to got the most profit from pigs the feeding must be adapted to this new demand. Pigs should be fed from birth with such food as will lay on good flesh and secure a sound constitution. The food should contain a large proportion of nitrogenous matter in it, all of which goes to develop muscular tissue. The effort to make a lump of fat, with as little offal as possible in the shap...

THE Warragul Guardian TUESDAY, 24TH APRIL, 1894. Seventeen Hours a Day. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

THE arr agul u arbian TUESDAY, 248u APRIL, 1894. Seventeen Hours a Day. A working day of eight hours does not apply to the Railway branch of the Government service. The application of the system would, of course, be im practicable. Some reasonable limit, however, should be fixed-a limit which would be consistent with the well-being of the men and the saftey of the travelling public. At present this is not the case in respect to our local railway arrangements. Instead of eight hours a day, the driver and fire main of the eunine which takes the milk train from Warragulto Melbourne are on duty for seventeen hours at a stretch, and are so continuously en gaged that they have not even time to procure a proper meal. The train leaves Warragul at eight o'clock in the morning, but the driver and fireman are on duty an hour and a-half before this time making the necessary pre parations for the journey, and after sticking closely to their responsible posts throughout the day the men arrive bac...

FROM THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

FROM THE CITY. On Sunday I went to hear the glorious old Dean of Melbourne preach in the Pro-Cathedral of St. James, a few days after the celebration of his 95th birthday. Seated there, and re flecting that just thirty-nine years had passed since I first heard him address the congregation of that church from the same pulpit, I could not help thinking what a remarkable man is he, who is said to be the oldest clergyman living in the British Empire, and who certainly is the only man in Australia who, born in the eighteenth century, has lived to very nearly the nineteenth. Yet the wonderfully retentive power of his memory is unimpaired. He will describe to you the ceremonial which attended the obsequies of Lord Nelson, which took place when he was six years old, in 1805, as accurately as lie would something that occurred last week, and in that sermon last Sunday, which was remarkable for its intel lectual grip, and far superior to the average of those le used to deliver a quarter of a c...

DIPHTHERIA IN WARRAGUL. ANOTHER CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

DIPHTHERIA IN WAR RAGUL. --e-- ANOTHER CASE. The local public will regret to learn that the recent outbreak of diphtheria in Warragul has not been stamped out as efftctually as was anticipated. A day or two ago the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. .J. Sutherland showed symptoms of the dread disease and on Dr. Trumpy being called in he pro nounced it to be diphtheria of a mild form. Whether, at a later stage, it will develop into a more serious attack re mains to be seen, but up to last even ing it was not considered necessary to officially isolate the premises. Mr. Sutherland's house is situated a very short distance from the house of Mr. I). F. McGrath- where the outbreak first occurred in Warragul-and it is thought that the infection spread dur ing tile destruction by fire of the bed ding and clothes in the back yard.. The fumes were blown across to Mr. Sutherland's, and it is said the house was filled with the smoke.

RECENT ADVANCES IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 24 April 1894

RECENT ADVANCES IN FARMING. The wheat-growers of Victoria have now mostly come to the conclusion that their past system of farming has not been conducive to a progressive agriculture. On the one hand the land was gradually being robbed of its fertility by perpetual cropping, the yields yearly becoming lighter and lighter, while on the other the price ofgtain was steadilydeclining. Sooner or later these two forces were bound to bring about an undesirable state of affairs; and that time has arrived. The wheat-growers know it too, but they are most of them facing the situation bravely, and what now appears to be a dark cloud overhang mng them will, I am confident; soon be dispelled by the advances that are being made in the system of farming Pursued. The dairying industry has proved the salvation of thousands of our farmers, and within the last year or two great progress has also been tmade in the direction of fruit and wine g.oaing, though the benefit from these tndustries is slower i...
