CRICKET AS A SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

CHARACTER READING AND FORTUNE-TELLING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 27 September 1898

CHARACTER READINC AND FORTUNE-TELLINC. From time to time we are asked. in M? seriousness. whether we believe in the various methods by which people make money through professing to read character. or recall the past. or foretell the future; and a correspondent, to whom we reply in another column, asked us if we thought it a sin to try to peep into futurity. We suppo.e it may be accepted as settled that a con siderable proportion of mankind will persist in superstitious regard for pro piecy. and a sort of fearful admiration of anybody who boldly claims to read tihant which is hidden from the sight of average mortals. The original impulse of mani'lnd was to tremble and believe in the presence of anything tihat it could not understand. The mutter of the dis tant storm, the flashing of irresistible liphtning, thl= crash of the thunder, the ralling of the sea. the pl:aintive howl i.os of thei homrelless winds. the bright uess that canu-ed the earth to -ing after a passi'g shower. the rol...

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

SHORT 1MEMORY. A Bishop, potorious for the shortness of his memory, was one day waiting at a station for a train. Being in good time, his lordship was indulging in a solitary trot up and down the platform. While thus engaged, he came in contact with a young officer w-hose face seemed fami liar 'to him. Meeting him again, be said, "Good morning." At the next re centre theBishop stopped, saying, "How is your father?" The gallant soldier re plied, "He has been dead for many ycars." The Eishop tried again with the query, "'I-ow is your mother?" "Well," said the officer, smiling, "I think she Inlt. be all right. or you would have heard hnld she been indisposed!" The Eisr.op walked away, but his curiosity was greatly arou.:ed. St eing the station u:?cer he at once asked him if he could ut:iiihl'?:n him as to whom the young wl:icer was with whom he had been con xv-rving. "Oh!" replied the station :nar tter. why, your lordship, that's the iJuk;e -of Connaught!"

THE WAGNER CRAZE. This TWagner craze presents some pu;: zlin; features.

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

BULN BULN EAST. With the advent of spring everything presents a "greenery andyallery" hue. The farmers in this outlying district have come through the recent disastrous drought and consequent scarcity of grass through the winter with a minimum of loss amongst their stock, as compared with other places in the vicinity of Warragul, moreover a great number of stock were depastured here from South Warragul. The grass is coming on fast and the early sown cereal crops look very healthy. The coming harvest will doubtless be a good one. The farmers around here are bringing their cows in again after a long interregnum and the hum of the separa tors is heard once more. Dairymen are now rearing all their calves, the stock of all kinds bringing good prices, moreover, the herds through out the colony have been depleted, so cattle are on the rise. We are glad to hear that the Bloomfield Creamery has resumed operations, and this reminds me that the Young Folks here intend giving a dramatic enterta...
