44 DAYS UNDER SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
44 DAYS UNDER, SNQW, During the severe snowstorms that visited Great Britain last winter the losses of sheep were occasionally very great. The exposure to which the sheep were submitted brought out the marvellous hardihood of the mountain breeds of sheep in Scotland. The following instance is given in the Scottish Farmer" :-"- A black-face wether sheep, three years old, belong ing to Mr. John Sherlock, Gold 1il(, County Durham, was overblown with snow during qne of the stnornl days of January last, and remained so covered for 44 days. When recovered the sheep was under three feet of snow. It had eaten up every piece of heather and grass possible to get, and the ground all around was completely hare. The sheep had also eaten all the wool off the right buttock, and cropped the wool along the right side and part of the belly. Although very weak when taken out from amongst the snow, the animal is now going on well." A Bolton lady who has recently died has made munificent bequests to sev...
THE UNWISE MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
THE UNWISE MERCHANT. One day when business ran down low Deep gloom sat on a merchart brow And dark as midnight was the tl. Of thoughts revolving rnpidly. That merchant saw a dreadful sight By fancy's dim and lurid light; He thought he saw the sheriff right Among his stock of finery. Ah! sadder yet his fears will rise, Ah I deeper yet will be his sighs; Ah louder yet will sound his cries Unless he advertise. Now, all who would a. lesson learn, Look closely, and you will discern That advertising will return Like bread upon the waters.

A BUTTER STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 24 May 1895
A BUTTER , STORY. That 'factry"' butter'- sould turni into margarine during the voyage to England is not more woriderfull thani that: tallow should"turn into butter, Son?e time ago, wbhen the butter expoit trade wee beiiig discussed in the Upper House, Mr. Officer, late member for Dundas, said that as a certain amount of latitude had been allowed in regard to the question he would like to tell a` little story. Many years ago, when sheep were boiled down on account of their carcases being unsaleable, he had occasion to boil down 200 old rams., They produced an inferior kind of tallow, which he exported to England, and in due time he got the account sales for so many casks of butter.

MADAME MELBA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 28 May 1895
MADAME MELBA. Madame Melba, the popular Mel bourne vocalist, appeared at Covent garden Theatre on Friday night as Marguerite in Gounod'sopera "Faust." The performance was a great success, and musical critics declare that the singer has gained increased emotional power since her last appearance in the part. Their Royal Highnesses, the Prince and Princess of Wales were present at the performance. Tuen DsA3A or To-DAY is in a decidedly healthy condition. This is due partly to the fact that our leading dramatists endeavor to produce work which will rank as literature. But it is, of course, mainly due to the appreciation which the British public invariably patronises what is good. This accounts for the wonderful popularity, as a family medicine, of Hollowys's Pills and Ointment. The British public knows by experience that for purifying the blood, invigorating the nerves and promoting the healthy action of the liver there is nothing in the whole wide world to equal Holloway's Pill; while ...
