NEERIM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

NEERIM. It is pleasing to notice the improved appearance of the country, in and around Neerim, Neerhn South, Neerim East, and Buln Buln East. Since the recent rains, the crops and grasss are springing up luxuriantly, and what is better still to notice, the poor cattle that were next to being starved to death, are now picking up flesh quickly. I must here make one remark, relative to the careless manner in which farmers allow their cattle to re main outside, during the severe winter months. It is not much wonder that so many cattle died .during the frosty nights of the past winter season. A matter of this kind requires some little attention, and could be remedied by erecting shelter sheds where the cattle run during the wet and cold seasons. I feel constrained to mention this fact, from what came under my personal ob servation during the last frosty weather. It was pitiful to behold the poor beasts of a frosty morning standing in a "comatose state and little or no feed for them where...

DISTRICT NEWS. SEA VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FRoM OUR CORRESPONDENTS). SEA VIEW. The strong winds of last week blew down a lot of old trees, several of which fell across the road, and broke down fences. Some of the burnt out dairymen are restocking their farms and buying new separators, several of which have been brought out to this district within the last few weeks, and several more have expressed their intention of getting them later on. The grass is going ahead splendidly, in fact unless stock is put on it at once, it will get ahead of the farmers. Although there has been a lot of rain Sarounld Warragul itself, very little has fallen in the Sea View district, and we want it badly, especially, for the young grass. Fcencii.; is still going on merrily, in fact every man you meet, you find he is busy fencing, and such fences too, all good picket and wire. Mortality amongst the stock has now ceased. Mr. William Warno bought a pure Ayrshire bull at the Royal Show, and it is now on his farm. Mr. J. Topp also bough...

YARRAGON. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

YARRAGON. M rs J. P. Mahony, of the Waterloo Hotel, Yarragon, met with a nasty accident on Sunday. In company with iMrs. Devine, she was driving to Trafalgar, when the horse became restive, and, making a sudden plunge forward, caused Mrs. Mahony to be thrown from the trap. We regret to state that she received injuries to herhead, which necessi the services of Dr. Hayes of Warragul. A reprehensible offence was recently com mitted on MIr. Borland's premises at Yarragon. That gentleman a few weeks ago removed into the township, where he is at present carrying on his business. IIe had a carefully prepared plate of glass placed in his oltice window, on which he advertised himself is "Land and Estate Agent." This seems to have caused annoyance to some shallow headed individual, who deliberately took a brick fromi the aljoinimlg premises (during the night and smashed the window. Constable Walsh, who has the matter in hand, is satis fied as to who the culprit is, and hopes to collect suffic...

DARNUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

DARNUM. The writer is requested by the com mittee of the Mechanics' Institute, to acknowledge with thanks the receipt of the West Gippsland Gazette. It is the intention of the counmmittee to file the Gazette at the Institute, where the very great convenience for reference will be appreciated by the members. The severe storm of Saturday week proved more destructive than at first sup posed. A great quantity of stormn timber came down on the growing crops and fences, playing havoc with wire fences especially. The entire roof of a large cow-shed on JMr. B3eazley's farm was blown off and carried some distance, and three heifers, the property of Mr Mannix, were killed by a falling tree. Messrs Cropley Bros' intend removing their saw-mill to a fresh site. The cost of these removals must be a very heavy item in the general expenses of the busi ness, and serve to mark the great risks that surround this industry. It frequent ly happens that after the most careful examination of a bel; of timb...

TRAFALGAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

TRAFALGAR. We are getting a wonderful spring, which is all the more appreciated with the cattle, mostly poor; but great im provement is perceptible wherever you go. The monthly sale conducted by Skews and Patterson was held on Friday last, and showed a great improvement, a fair business being done. The same finm held a very successful clearing sale on the Friday previous for Mr. Messenger. Satisfactory prices were realised for the cattle submitted, and also for the fur niture, it being much above the average at country sales, and it was not got through till sundow?n. There is "a general improvement all round, and property is eagerly sought after. Several newcomers have lately purchased land and intend to settle here, while others are still making enquiries. The swamp is also bringing more families to the district. I hear that Mr. Balcke, the Wesleyan Home Missionary st:ationed here, is not getting on so well as anticipated, and medical men have ordered complete rest from his duties....

DEATHS FROM TETANUS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

DEATHS FROM TETANUS, Writicg on a recent English case the "'cTiical Press" says: The death of a young clergyman from lock-jaw following an abrasion of the _r;n caused by a bicycle accident again recalls the risks which cyclists incur by negleccting ordinary precautions under these circumstances. The most danger ous wounds to be infected with the te tanus bacilli are punctured ones, inas mruch as the micro-organisms belong to the anaerobic class which cannot flourish in the presence of oxygen. But any wound of the skin, superficial or other wis.?, may become infected if care.be not observed in thorough cleansing after its infliction. Hence cyclists should dis tinctly bear in mind that all wounds caused by falls from the machine cannot be regarded :as safe from tetanus infec tion until, without any delay, they have been thoroughly washed and cleansed with some trustworthy antispetic, a pro cedure with regard to which fortunately there is no difficulty. At the inquest on this case a ve...

THE BRITISH ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

THE BRITISH ARMY. In the course of an address at Hedens ford a few weeks ago, Mr Powell Wil liams. M.P., alluded to the army. We extract from his remarks: Since he (Mr Powell Williams) had been at the War Office, he of course had had oplportunities of finding out a good deal about the army. He should like to say a word or two about the condition of her Majesty's army at the present time. From his knowledge of the equipment of her Ma;esty's forces, and of the equip ment of other' countries' forces, he should strongly recommend any foreign coun try to think twice before venturing upon our shores in a hostile spirit, because he was satisfied that no troops could be brought nga'nst our troops which were superior to them in courage or better equipped to meet the fortunes of war. It was sometimes asked, "Is the spirit of our country gone, and can it be relied upon as it was in former years if the stress of conflict comes?" To the first of these questions he emphatically answered "No," and...

TOLSTOI'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

TOLSTOI'S MESSAGE. Count Leo Tolstoy contributes to the current number of the "New Age" the opening chapters of a work which he evidently thinks will be his last message to the world. In his Introduction, he says: So that I am urged to what I do, not. by- wish for gain or fame,, nor. by any worldly conisierations, but only by fear to fail. in what is required from me by Him who has sent me into this world, to Whom I am hourly expecting to return I, therefore, beg all those who shall read. this to follow and understand my writ ing, put aside, as I did, all worldly con siderations, ar-d holding before thein only that eternal Principle of truth and, right, by 'Whose will we have come into the world, whence, as being in the body,. we shall very soon disappear; without hurry or irritation, let them understand. and judge what I say.' If they disagree, let them correct me; not with contempt and hatred, but withl pity and love. If they agree, let them remember that if I speak the truth, tha...

THE HORSE. RELATION OF CONFORMATION TO SHOE-FITTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

THE HORSE. RELATION OF CONFORMATION TO SHOE-FII rING. This subject of fitting is so broad, and cove-rs; so many different points, that it is impossible to treat it fully unless un limited time and space is given to the consideration. Therefore, we will, for the present, confine ourselves to but one feature, viz.. the hind fitting, and in con junction with the sudject also treat in a passing way conformation, and the ne cessity of :;tudying it when attempting to fit a shoe (says a %practical horse shoer in the "HIorsesho .s' Journal"). In shoeing a horse, any intelligent man will, before starting the operation, first study the conformation. He will look first at 1the iimbs, and then the position the feet occupy towards the limb. Then, following up his ubject, Ire will look at the position the feet occupy on the ground. He wtll find some limbs, I mean the lower portion, for this is our main point of observation, with long drawn pasterns, bound or curb-hocked, others short in pastern a...

STORY OF A MUTINY. A DARING CAPTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

STORY OF A MUTINY. A DARING CAPTAIN. Included in a series of sketches under the heading of "Mutinies at Sea," written by SMr Alfred T. Story, is the following account, which is particularly interest ing, inasmuch as the son of the daring skipper referred to is now a resident of Melbourne. The stories appeared in "Cassell's 1a gazine." and the sketch referred to is as follows:-I-ow often their nerve and dar in.g have carried the day as against over whelming odds int perils at sea, few Ipo ple would credit. And how much the Briton owes his mastery- of the sea to his superior qualities in this resp,ect can only be appreciated by those who have seen his courage and resolution rising to the occasion, as compared with that of nations less inured to the sea. Of the best and highest type of such a courage the following incident is an example: The hero of the story was the late Cap tain Anderson, of London, as fine a sp<e cimen of the British seaman as ever liv ed.
