TR ARALGON RACES. The Traralgon annual races-post poned from St. Patrick's Day, in order not to clash with Ilevfield races-touk place on Wednesday last. The weather was magnificent, and a large number of the residents of the surrounding districts, as well as the townspeople, congregated on the course at Traralgon Park to witness the sport. The first event was the Maiden Plate of one -and-a-half miles, for which three horses faced the starter. The race was somtewhat uninteresting. as Gre gory Brown led from start to finish. and won by several lengths. A protest entered by the owner of the third horse was subsequent y withdrawn.

INCIDENTS OF LIFE AT THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 April 1881

INCIDENTS OF LIFE AT THE BAR. Perhaps the most cheery times and periods of Bar life are those when quartet sessions and circuits are on. The change of scene is of itself a relief from this pro. saic monotony of London practice; there are the festivities of the senior or circuit mess; rubbers, loo, and "nap" in the evenings; and the most outside junior may hope for a prosecution brief or two, even though in London no client has yet instructed him. Hie may also get a de fence handed to him to devil, by some leading "stuff," who is busy in another court of the Shire-hall, and then comes junior's chance of distinction. The dan. ger is, lest in delight at the power of cross-examination, .he should overdo his case. If it is a policeman, whom he is dealing with, he is very likely to barn his fingers, for policemen are too oft not only unscrupulous as to oath, but also insolent. The local inspector, puffed up with his own self importance, ignores the junior, and addresses his remarks only t...

A LADY JOCKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 April 1881

A LADY JOCKEY.. Perhaps the most exciting and enthu siastio sight ever seen on a raceconrse was witnessed on Knavesmerein 1804, when. the famous match came off betweenMrs. Thornton, on Vingarillo, and Mr. Flint on Thornville, which was ron in the pre sence, as was stated, of 100,000 spectators. Captain Flint, a gentleman re siding.on the Wolds, near Drilfield,, had married the sister of Mrs. Thornton, and being as ardent a devotee of the chase and the turf as Colonel Thornton, the two families were constantly visiting at each other's houses, on terms of even greater intimacy, in consequence of congenial tastes, than is usual between brothers-in law. They were all-the colonel, the captain, and their wires-proud of their horses, and constantly talking of them, frequently trying them in impromptu matches in Thornvillo Park. .On one oc casion, when Mrs. Thornton was riding Vingarillo, her favorite horse, and Mr. PFlint was mounted on Thornvillo, the con versation turned on the respectiv...

"CROWDING OUT" OF SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 April 1881

I "CROWDINGc OUT" OF SOCIETY. The person that would not be crowded out ofesociety must make himself needed by society.. By every legitiniate effort he shoeld'strive so to improve the measure of ability entrusted to him, be it great or small or moderate, that, whatever be his positioin, his worth must sooner' or later be recognised, and room made for him amidst the throng of eager competitors. Impudent, blustering, hectoring self-as sertion.may shoulder its way through any crowd by the sheer force of its own strong will, and for. a time thrust out of its p athless obtrusive spirites of- more siolid worth. But the cheat is -often dis. covered. The jay in borrowed plumes is at length summarily ejected. Honest, intelligent, persevering labor does tell in thelong run. The stone-fit for the wall is not always lefton the: ground.', Sonie niche is found for it in thelvast edifice of human society, if not in the temple' of fame., Although a man maynot have the disposition or energy .to elbow...

THE EXTINCTION OF FOREST LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 7 April 1881

THIE EXTINCTIONLS OF FOREST LANDS. Througlhollut all civilisedl countries the graduall extinction of forests is claiming the attention of both scien tists and st:atesm:nc. Scarcity of woodl is followed by scarcity of water, and the scarcity of both is followed by the desIert. Illn many locialities, whero once the forest clothed the hill sides and tilled the valleys, there is left only a barren, parched track, shelter less and waterless. This condition is directly traceable to tlle denudalltionl of forest landstl. In Belgiul, Tollanlldl, and other anciently peopled countries, are is takeni to revive the forests. For one tree that is cut down several are plalntled, and as a rule planted by tilhe State folr timber. The timber thus prolducled yields a halndsone revenue to the CGoverlnmenllt, besides rendering residence more healthful and lifo more colmLfortalble.
