GRANNY GORTON'S BIRTH DAY. Saturday, January 21st, was a great day in Central Village, in the State of Connecticut, in America. On that day Mrs. Jonathan Gorton was 100 years old and formallyj received her friends, of. whom hundreds were pre sent. She wore her best black silk gown, with a rose in the bodice. The venerable lady was seated in a com bif~talil a hiThalitin aiff; itl form sir-the best room of her house: ;'Then, the train of callers filed through, each and all slinking hands with her. "Granny Gorton," as she is called, is a trim little body and very nimble on her feet. There was never anything ailed her, she says, and, except that her eyesight isn't quite so good as it used to be, she is as active as any woman of 50. Why has Granny Gqrton lived so long? Why is she so active now? She lets out the secret herself when she says, " There was never anything ailed me." That's it, and all of it. People who live 100 years are not so very rare. The deaths of 45 such were reported l...

THE FLAX INDUSTRY. ANOTHER LETTER FROM MR. WILSON. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE WARRAGUL GUARDIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
THE' FLAX INDUSTRY. ANOTHER LETTER FROM MR. WILSON.. ---o--o [TO THE EDITOR OF THE `WARRAGUL Sir,-I have been fav-ored bya War ragul friend with a copy of your valuable paper; 'and iu it I saw much that interested *me--especially the various references to'flax. I do not think 'people are fully aware of the excellent results ,to be obtained from flax' ciltiire," providing method and skill be applied to the work in connec tion with it. The best wheat grower in-the colony will rarely outstrip the bad 'one-by more than 3d per bushel, but the skilled flax grower may beat his unskilled fellow grower by fully 75 per cent. in the value of his product. Mr. Hugh M'Causland .of County Antrim (North.. of Ireland), obtained last seascn from less thari 2, acres of land, £80 worth of splendid fibre. So fine was this fibre that a Belfast spinner to whom it was sold stated he spun from it enough thread to encompass the globe. The Ulster crop of 1893 averaged'£23 6s 8}d per acre, and some exceptional...
A MODEL CRAZING FARM. AT POOWONG EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
A. MODEL GRAZING FARMI. AT POOWONG EAST. -0 A visit to Mr. J. Aikman's farm at Poowong East at the present time would perhaps surprise the critical sceptic who doubted the fertility of Gippsland soil more than anything else.. -Mr. Aikman has been settled on this farm since 1876, when he was ainong the., first who took up in 'the neighborhood. He spent a few months in the. district before he made his final selection, and the result has well.' justified the time spent in securing the block When first selected' the farm was covere'dwith a dense forest ofhazel'scrub and tall gum trees, with every imaginable variety of undergrowth. It could only be reached by. a blazed track- through the bush, and it required a vast amount of pluck and no small amount of capital to undertake the task of clearing such a block at a time when work could be had almost anywhere' of a profitable nature.' However, that Mr. Aikman did not fail iii his pioneering 'work is amply proved by the present: condition ot...

FLAX MEMS. Up to the present guarantees have been received that over 2000 acres will be planted this year with oil and fibre producing plants in the' Bairns dale district. Cranbourne and district bid fair to beconie a big centre in the cultivation of flax. Mr. Charles- Wadey, well. known Melbourne contractor, has been experimenting in this culture on his estate at Glenfarm, Clyde, near Cran bourne, for the past two seasons, and has met with such success and is so assured of the ultimate beneficial re sults to be obtained from the industry that he has erected a complete flax dressing plant on' his farm, consisting of breaking and scutching machines and a powerful engine. A correspondent writes :-A friend of mine whohas had experience in flax growing in other countries, has re cently been taking a look round among the flax fields. He finds that in nearly every instance the growers are entirely ignorant of the process required to pre pare it for scutching, and to this numerous failures...

It will be noted that whilst he emphasises "the excellent results to be attained from flax culture," he is particularly careful to explain that both skill and method are absolutely essential-to the attain ment of this end. Such a prominent part, in' fact, do these two qualities play that! Mr. Wilson asserts that " the skilled, flax-grower may beat his unskilled fellow-grower by fully 75 per cent. ini the value 'cf his product."

Mar h, in aid of the Bishop of Melbourne's Fund,of which the lecturer is the organising secretary. The subject of tie lecture was " Red, White, and Black," a bald combination of words that would scarcely convey to the casual observer that the colors were intended to detignate the aifferent races inhabitant of Americ', and'that the lecture would deal 1itlihtheir ;historical past and their varymn characteristics at the present day. Sncb'however, was the scope of the delivery, and for over two hours the revd. gentleman kept the audience intensely interested, and at times per ceptibly amused. His condemnation of the'" whiteifaces '.':for slaughtering the ired man and confiasating his land, elicited' and was followed by the impassioned declaration: "That is the 'way 'the Christians treated the red man, and-...

MARVELLOUS AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
MARVELLOUS AUS TRALIA. A London publication known as "Pearson's Weekly," supplies the following remarkable information : The characteristic climate of Aus traliaand the pugnacity of the kangaroo make hunting the hides dangerous. Winter starts in May and ends in December in that country. The rest of the year the heat is intense, the thermometer frequently reaching 140 degrees. Eight men hunt together for kangaroos. They are called a"'set" When brought to bay the kangaroo tumps like a flash for a hunter's breast, and tries to crush it with his fore feet. To prevent this each man wears across his breast a square of matting. Armed with a spear, with a club attached to the other end, they ride upon swift horses into a herd. With tL? agility and balance of circus riders they stand erect upon their horses and use their.spears and clubs. The kangaroo is able to jump elean over a horse,
