THE HERO OF EVERYDAY LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
THE HERO OF EVERYDAY LIFE. He wouldn't look v:ell in a novel: He wouldn't he praised in a play: His home's neithcr palace nor hovel: lHe's only a man of to-day. He couldn't do much with a sabre. If carnage and riot were rife; lie merely can suffer tbhe labor- - A hero of everyday life. lie isn't delightfully daring: He isn't a maiden's ideal, His love and devotion declaring A hero of ballads and steel. He's merely a man who is fighting The battle of civilised times, A ballad that's 'withering, blighting. Unsung in the troubadour's rhymes. His smile is a ruse to keep hidden From those to his heart ever dear, The phantoms that greet him unbidden, The future he's tempted to Sear. His life is a constant endeavor To keep his eyes turned to the 11gh'. To seem to be happy whatever The prospect of darkening night. He's really but one of the many, Determined and patient and bold, Whose struggle's as noble as any By poet or novelist told. And later, when Time writes the story Of those who've ...

The adjourned hearing of the above mining case, was resumed at the Warden's Court on Friday last, before Mr. A. C. Cresswell. Carl Pearson, of Neerim East, miner, sought to recover £100 damages from the Neerim Proprietary company, for allowing tailings and sludge from their claim to run upon complainants ground and the complainant further sought for an order to restrain defend ant's from allowing such tailings to run upon complainants property. Mr. Corr represented the complain ant, and Mr, Backhouse defended. Mr. Backhouse said that the defence, was a denial of the fact set forth in the summons, that there were no tailings on the land, and if any one was liable, it was F. R. Harris, as the holder of a water right license from the head to the end of the race complained of and that plaintiff had no right to sue, as he was not the holder of claim, having abandoned it.

A FAST LIFE. ITS PLEASURES AND ITS PERILS. SOME MEN AND WOMEN WHO LIVE AT LIGHTNING SPEED, AND WILL ONLY TAKE A VACATION IN THE GRAVE.—THE PACE THAT KILLS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
A FAST LIFE. ITS PLEASURES AND ITS PERILS. SOME MEN AND WOMEN WHO LIVE AT LIGHTNING SPEED, AND WILL ONLY TAKE A VACATION IN THE GRAVE. THE PACE THAT KILLS. Times have certainly changed, and in some respects not for the better. The tide of life and competition is stronger than it was fifty years ago, and, like a swimmer with a strong tide against him, one must expend double the energy to win to the shores of success. It makes no difference what goal we aim at, the conditions are the same. We live too fast, work too hard, drink too much, sleep too little, keep our nerves on the strain and jump all the time. There are two classes of fast livers. Those who work too hard and too long. Those who do not worklat all. Both classes are reaching the same end, though, perhaps, by somewhat different routes. They are "burning the candle at both ends," and even a child can pre dict the result. There will be no candle shortly. Increased speed in any machine, h erwiso. mann incr ?: ?e, waste .f the ...
ONCE UPON A TIME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
ONCE UPON A TIME. Two frogs found themselves in a pail of milk, and they could not jmunp out. One turned faint-hearted, and said to the other, "Good-bye, I sink, I die." Said his neryv, nousy chum, " Brace up, you duffer, keep jumpin', and see what turns up." So they kept on jtunping up and down all night, and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter, and, lo ! they escaped safe to land! Applied to business, the froggy fable means this: The man who looks for bad times, and becomes dormant and faint-hearted directly the business outlook becomes cloudy, will not sur vive to see good times, for he lets a goldc, opportunity slip by. Tradesmen's circulars of special and artistic: esigu, ior announcing the open ing of Im-w businesses, or the the expansion of old u:,ns, are to be obtained at the "Gazette" office, and will prove a profit able investment.
AN INFANT SMOKER. SEVEN CIGARS A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
AN INFANT SMOKER. SEVEN CIGARS A DAY. A child of three years old who smokes as many as seven cigars a day, which are given to him by his parents, would seem to be direct evidence that they are unfit to take care of him. uch a pItweLucoub gpeCimleil of human ity has just been discovered in the neighborhood of Jersey City, where his father and mother are amongst the best known residents. From the time he was able to crawl about lhe manifested a curious fondness for tobacco, and he would eat every cigar stump or piece of cigarette he could find. He began smoking before he was two years old, and the physician nwho has seen him says that tobacco is a necessity for his system whence the peculiar action of his parents.
A FARMER'S CURIOUS WILL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
A FARMER'S CURIOUS WILL. There are some curious phases in the will of the late Thomas Jeffery, which was filed for probate recently. The testator, who was a farmer, residing at Preston, died on 28th May last, leaving a will dated 24th January, 1887. It is written on a' sheet of blue foolscap in anything but a legal "fist," and sets out that testator leaves his property to his wife, Jane Jeffery, "for her use during her life or to she marries." Then he proceeds to direct that "before she mar ries she must arrange with my two exe cutors and herself as executrix about dividing my property with each of my children and herself, the boys to get one fifth share more than the girls." The estate is valued at £11,587, consisting of £9650 realty and £1937 personally.
UNWELCOME VISITORS. BEETLES ON THE WING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
UNWELCOME VISITORS. BEETLES ON THE WING. At Warrnambool recently con siderable consternation was caused among the people by the appearance of dark clouds, from which emanated a strange humming sound, and which ultimately proved to be a large swarm of beetles. A correspondent there says:-" They usually appear about sunset, and fly some distance from the ground, and their persistent buzzing produces the noise which has been occasioning so much speculation. These beetles are said to be the per fect insects of the white grubs that cause destruction on grass land by devouring the roots of herbage. They are allied to the cockchafer, their scientific name being scitala geminata. They seem to have matured much earlier this season than usual, and it isvery rarely that such large swarms are to be seen. In many places on the ground and the seashore myriads of these beetles have been observed.

IN A DILEMMA. THE WARRAGUL SHIRE COUNCIL AND THE GOVERNMENT GRANT. "DON'T KNOW WHERE 'E ARE." [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898
IN A DILEMMA. THE WARRAGUL SHIRE COUr' CIL AND THE GOVERNMENT GRANT. ", DON'.T KNOW WHERE 'E ARE." A special meeting of the Warragul Shire Council was held on Friday afternoon for the purpose of drawing up a schedule of works for submissio:. to the Minister of Public Works-Alvr Taverner-in connection with the. allocation of the grant to fourth, fifth and sixth class shires just approved by Parliament. The total sum sanc tioned for this purpose amounts to £150,000. Its allotment however, is to be distributed over three years. This gives an average of £50,000 a year, but when councillors came to consider the proportion tha.- the WVar ragul Shire should apply for, they found themselves in a dilemma. Ought they to apply for their proportion of the first year's moiety-£50,000- or base their schedule on the basis of what they would be entitled to on the total grant, £150,000 ? It is estimated that this shire is entitled to about £5,000 of the total grant, or £1,700 a year for the three ye...

Preparations being made for stoping. Battery works well advanced.
