FLAX MEMS. A MILL AT CRANBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 17 May 1895
FLAX MEVIS. A MILL -AT CRANBOURNE. -0 Although there was a good attend ance at the flax meeting held at War ragul on Wednesday night the proportion of farmers was not so large as'was anticipated, "This is always the case in Warragul and judging by the experiences of Mr J. L. Dow, Warrsgul is no exception to the rule. When lecturing here a few months ago on the cheap money question, Mr, Dow was commiserated with by a gentleman present on the exceedingly small attendance of farmers.. " Oh," replied the lecturer, * I never expect to address the fariners direct, they never turn up at meetings Ialways talk to the representative of the local paper and get at them through its columns. If my speech is reported I don't care whether 1 have an audience or riot, for my experience has led me to the conclusion that the farmer relies on. his paper for reports of all these meetings. He can then sit down and digest it at leisure." Perhaps this accounts for the absence of many of our local farmers- f...

THE A.M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 May 1895
THE A.M.P. The report of the above institution, which appears on our front page --has received very favourable-notices from all the leadisig papers; Ani institution which has solid-assets amounting to £18,000,000"is unquestionably a great financial factor. The reporttshows that the new business for the year 1804 amounted to" £2,810,010,- but"` is hardly neccessary to say that against this sum has to be' placed a ,large amount representing : claims, surren ders, and forfeitures. The payments to policy-holders for the year reach a tutal of over £1,010,000, the society thus paying dut nearly- £20,000 per week in the cause of providence. The income fell little short of two millions sterling, . and after deduction of all disbursements, and .reserves,, over £180,000 was added to acehumilated funds. The directors have..carefully inspected the-securities of the society and-havi set apart -£225,168 out of a surplus of the year in anugmentation of the reserve for depreciation :of -secur ities...
PROSPECTING TOUR IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 May 1895
PROSPECTING TOUR. IN VICTORIA. [BY BENGALEE.] Now that more attention is being paid to an industry that is already too much neglected, a few lines giving an account of a short prospecting tour in Victoria may be of interest. The industry alluded to is mining. Many people rush off to the ends of the earth in their search for gold, while the same amount of energy displayed and money spent in Victoria, for instance, would repay them better and help to dispel the present depression many people are coiplaining about. Having spent five or six years prospecting and working on several gold fields in West Australia, where many many people are now flocking, I have not the slightest hesitation in stating, even from what I have seen of only a very small portion of the auriferous country in Victoria, that there is a better opening.for the investment of capital than in the sister colony. Some time ago, having nothing particular to do in Melbourne, I ACCEPTED TiE OFFER of a small syndicate to proc...
GOSSIP FOR THE LADIES. Melbourne, May 18th, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 May 1895
GOSSIP FOR THE LADIES, :: (BY DArns). Melbourne May 18th, 1895, For this time of the year the weather is beautiful and balmy, and the gardens about' Melbourne and suburbs are look. ing more like spring than anything else, as bulbs of all descriptions are now peeping above the ground, but I fear the frost will tell a sad tale before long. Everything is quiet about town and although the Queen's Birthday is coming round once again, the gaietis at Government House will not be enjoyed owing to the death of Mr. F, J. S. Stephens, father of Lady Madden which took place on Friday evening last. The theatres are always patronised this time of the year, especially if there is a good piece on. At the new Princess " In Town " has taken very well, and has now entered on the second week. It is a very brilliant play, and playgoers seem to enjoy it very much, as the houses are generally very good. At the Bijou Theatre Mr, Frank Clarke's new company com. menced a season on Saturday night last with a ...

FLAX MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 May 1895
FLAX MEMS. The farmers must bestir themselves at once if they intend growing flax and applying for the bonus this season. This is the 21st of May. Only 10 days, therefore, remain during which the bonus can be applied for. In other words, if a farmer intends cultivating flax and neglects sending in his appli cation for the bonus by the end of the present month he will get no bonus at all. Every intending grower should therefore, forward his application at once so as to be on the safe side. Flax growers need have no mis givings as to the possibility of finding a market for the fibre. The reports in the Press concerning the movement at Warragul have led several firms to inquire whether arrangements have yet been made for the disposal of the I fibre. Seeing that the seed has not even been sown it looks as though there is likely to be sharp competition for the Gippsland product. The possibility of the fibre being unmarket able is altogether too remote to be seriousiy entertained. Messrs....

MASONIC SOCIAL. The first of a series of socials in connection with the Gippsland Forest Lodge of Freemasons was held in the Masonic Hall, Warragul, on Friday night, and was unanimously pro nounced a great success. The room had been decorated by Bro. D. E. Small, P.M., with exceeding taste and care, and consequently presented a bright and enticing aspect. There were about sixty present, and at the commencement of the proceedings the company were welcomcd by the Worshipful Master-Bro. C. J. Jones -who expressed his pleasure at the presence of such a pleasing gathering, and subsequently congratulated Bro. G. J. Turner, P.M., on the distinction recently conferred upon him by the Grand Lodge, in appointing him to the important position of Assistant Director of Ceremonies. Bro.

A RAILWAY TO WALHALLA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 May 1895
A RAILWAY TO WALHALLA. Sia,-What has become of the proposal mooted some few years ago, of a railway from Neerim to Walhalla ? I don't profess to know if such a line is practicable but I do know that such a suggestion was made in all seriousness not very long ago by parties who know quite well what they were talking about, Everybody knows or ought to know, that such a line would open up a lot of valuable country both for saw-milling and agriculture, not to mention the vast area of almost virgin auriferous country. and the distance is not a serious obstacle and we have always understood that the ultimate terminus of the Neerimline was either Walhalla or the Yarra valley. The residents of lioe are again indulging in their periodical spurt about the coveted line to Walhalla, and the correspon dent of the ' Age" makes a rather serious threat which is calculated to move the Minister of Railways into immediate action. He is told by this imaginative correspondent that if the Government does...
