- FEEDING SMUTTY CORN. What It iHas Done to Valuable Live Stock - in Tennessee. NearNew Iiddleton considerable corn was gathered that had rotted on the stalk; some of the corn had considerable smut, This corn has been fed to horses, cattle and hogs. W. B. Denny recently .lost a horse; James Enoch also lost a horse; Lewis Allen had a horse to die, and the Widow Pruitt lost one also. 5everal other horses died quite recently in that neighborhood. Post mortem examinations were made in four cases, the result showing death to be caused by rotted and smutty corn. Mr. Gibbs, living about a mile on the south side of the river, has a fine colt sick, the result of feeding smutty corn, so supposed. James Davis has a fine mare that he expects to lose any minute; she has been fed on rotted and smutty corn, These cases were investigated by our Informant, and nearly every animal had been kept up and fed on corn, the own ers not having in most instances any bluegrass' pasturage, which acts as a purg...

Points of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
Foints of Interest. Salt all your live stock at least once a week. - Milk cows ought to have large pieces of rock salt near-their watering troughs, where they can lick it when they feel like it. In Europe it is the general impresijon that sheep cannot be raised unless'root crops, such as turnips, carrots, etc., are cultivated for them. But in this coun try of high priced work and labor say ing devices, it has been found that sheep thrive quite as well on ensilage, thus avoiding the back breaking and expen sive task of cultivating and digging turnips. The Arkansas valley is becoming a great hog country. It possesses unri valled advantages of climate, and is ad mirably adapted in other respects to the swine industry. More and more breeders are falling into the habit of dehorning cattle. One who once adopts the practice rarely allows horns to grow again. Dehorning is not greatly painful to the animal if done in the right way when the calf is young, when the horns are no more than mere ...
Cure for Bone Spavin. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
Care 'for Bone Spavin. R. G. A WMites toThe Rural New Yorker:,. ," Take soft soap and stir it full of -fin salt and put it in the spavin twice a day, rnbbing it well until it becomes sore; then wash it with castile soap and water until it is thoroughly healed; then use the soap and salt until sore again; then wash and keep on doing so until it is healed without a bunch. It will take time-from four to six months. Driving will not hurt the horse at the time of using the application. I have been nsing this on my horse now three months, and the bunch is growing smaller all the time and the horse is not so lame as it. was. There have been horses cured :? tirely, or I should niot have recommend edit.

A GOOD RETORT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
A GOOD RETORT. -- --- Mr. Henry Irving was placed in an amusing, and at the same time somue what embarrasing, position on one opcassion during his recent American tour. It was at ti4e Tremojit Theatre in Boston. After the nightly applause which greeted the full of the purtain, IMr. Irving was vociferously called upon for a speech. in the course of his remarks hL mentioned that his good bye to Boston would also be his good.bye to America. As the words left his lips someone in the balcony clapped his hands vigorously. In the stillness of the house this ill-timed applause was p;infully distinct, and the audience held its breath, as it were, doubtful of the light in which MIr. Irving would regard the dubious com pliment. But the great Lyccum actor was equal to the situation, and siniling pleasantly, remarked, " I know that came from an Englishman !" The house seized upon the interpretation in a islolent, and broke into cheers.

GIPPSLAND DAIRYMEN'S ASSOCIATION. A LONDON REPRESENTATIVE WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
GIPPSLAND DAIRYMEN'S ASSOCIATION: A LONDON REPRESENTATIVE WANTED. ------ o-A meeting of delegates of the above association was held inthe-MIehanics' Institute, Traralgon, on' Monday, wwhen there were, present--Messrs. Walker (Traralgon, in the chair), Iniglis (Mirlioo), Allen (Rosedale), Harvie (Warragul), MurdochandCooke (Poowong),. and °T. H. Row (secre. tary). The business of" the meeting was to consider the advisability of appointing a responsible person in London to look after, and place the Gippsland Associa tion's butter to.the best advantage on the home market. During the discussion, *reference was made to the assertion that lots of the Victorian butter had been sold as Danish, and that people at home could not buy the Victorian article; it was therefore plain that if some responsible firm in London would undertake to distribute and sell the Association's butter throughout the large centres of Great Britain, an immense advantage would accrue to those factories belong ing to ...
A SMALL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
A .SMALL FARM.. Some very fine specimens of Brown's River potatoes have been grown by Mr. McIvett and can beo seen at the office of Mr. J. L. Parkes, auctioneer and estate agent, Warragul. Mr. Mclvutt is renting a 20-acre block of land belonging to Mr. Parkes, about a mile and a quarter from the town ship, in an easterly. direction from " ammerdale"-adjoining Mr. P. J. Smith's property-and is apparently making a comfortable living on this " small farm.'' Five acres have been under cultivation'this season, and the remainilig fifteen acres have been put under grass.. The occupier has grown other produce in addition to potatoes, he has five or six cdws, two horses, several pigs and a few dozen head of poultry, and is thus provided with all the necessaries of life. But the point of the matter is that, under present conditions he obtained his cottage and land for less money than many people are paying for a medium house in Warragul. The place is kept in very good order, and the land, bei...

HYDRAULIC MINING IN NEW ZEALAND. USEFUL HINTS FOR GIPPSLAND MINERS. -i-o BD BENGALEE. As there is evidently a strong revival in .mining matters in Gippoland and all over 'Victoria. little information about the way sHydraulic isining is carried on in New Zealand, may be of interest to some of .your readers. I will try and describe how mining operations are carried on at tile Hound Hill Mining Company, property. This property is situated about 12 miles from lRiverton a small township in South land New Zealand. The railway -from Invercargil to Orepuki passes about four miles from the claim at a place called Colac. There is ia passablo road from Riverton to Colse, but the last few muiles from Itiverton to Colae to Round Hill is is over a corduroy road. that is anything but pleasant to ride over, especially after a heavy shower of rain. The ROUND IHILL MINING COMPANY have gone to considerable expense getting water on to their claim, and the diffliculty •that occurs in many places, viz., ...
RE-OPENING A NEERIM MINE. AFTER 20 YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
RE-OPENING A NEERIM MINE. AFTER 20 YEARS. .-0 The Old Beehive claim, some ten miles to the north of Warragul, has had an eventful experience. The mine was opened 20 years ago by a man named Williams, and lie and a small party of men are said to have made good wiges by Niashing the alluvial and dolleying the richer stone. After being held for four years the claim was abandoned and a Walhalla man named J. Hall formed a company, principally of residents of Walhalla, a Mr. Taylor being legal manager. It was at this time that Mr. M. Aitken of Warragul, then resident at Moe, was engaged to erect a 15ft. overshoot watcrwheel, a puddling machine and a small battery of four stampers. His remuneration was one-sixteenth of a share, then VALUED AT £50. A water race was cut -for a distance of one and a-quarter miles to the river Tarago, and the power thus obtained was sufficient for the puddler and battery. The alluvial ground within a circle of about two chains was put througlh, and the first r...
Brood Sows. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
Brood Sows. The greater thriftiness of pigs from a sow that has borne one, two or three previous litters is partly due doubtless to the greater amount of milk she gives. There is probably as much proportional difference here as between a mature cow and a heifer with her first calf. Besides, in the young sow the milk is not so rich, as part of what should go to make it is kept for growth of the mother. It is possible to keep sows too long, but this is more frequently from their learning bad habits, becoming unruly or eating their young, than from failure to give full messes of milk, or to produce good litters of thrifty young, and sometimes even farrow more than they have teats, in which case it is economy to kill the weaklings in excess.- -Nor'west Farmer.

REARING SPRING LAMBS. EXPERIENCE OF A MAN WHO COINS THE WORD "LAMBERY. One Breeder Who Has Succeeded Well with Spineg Iambs-He Speaks Strong ly in Favor of the Tigor and Rellabil ity of the Horned Dorset Breed. J. S. Woodward,-of. Niagara county, N. Y.," furnishes to The Bural New Yorker the following aseful information bt regard to rearing spring lambs: - If the place where we raise pigs is a "piggery," why not call the place where we raise early lambs a "lamberyy' I am in favor of it. -Well, we have com menced operations in our lambery this year, not earlier than ever before, but on a more extensive scale for so early a date. On Oct. 18 we had no young lambs, but when I was home the day before election-Nov. 3-we had sixty six, which made an average of a little over four a day, and they were then coming lively. This is a much better snuccess than we had" ever had before. One early lamb is worth two Late ones, and we have given days to the investi gation'of the best way to produce t...
Best Way to Raise Hens. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
Best T~ay to Raise Hens. Gasp them firmlywith the right hand. under both wings, and lift them gently. I have tried prying them np with a board, but they seem inclined to resent it more, and it is apt to cause a great dist rbanco among the rest of the flock; then, too, you never know which way ta hen is going to point, and she always starts so suddenly thatif your footing is notsecure you might get hurt. So, on the whole, I think the former way is prefer able--Poultry Journal.
THE WARRAGUL ATHENÆUM. FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
THE WARRAGUL ATHEN)EUM. FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES. The Warragul Athenaium and Public Library seems to be suffering from the depression in common with every other institution in the colony, and conse quently its financial position is not of a very encouraging character. The committee had the matter before them at a meeting held on Monday evening, and which was attended by Mr. R. Hillard (President), and Messrs. Mann, Round, Witton, Svmonds, Harvey, Iliffe, Harris and Wood, and Dr. Hayes. It was reported that the exponses for the current year would. probably be £30 in excess of the receipts, and a discussion arose as to how the difficulty should be met. A proposal was brought forward for raising a mortgage on the buildin- £100j or£150-but certain members objected to borrowing money until every other means had been exhausted for providing the funds by other methods-either by transforming the place into a Public-hall or holding a series of entertainments in aid of the institution. Eventual...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 4 May 1894
LOCAL NEWS. People who are in the habit of ridinig on the footpaths in Warragul and driving after sundown without lights had better lookout. A hint to the wise is quite enough! Mr. Churchill liogers has leased his farm at Muddy Creek to Mr. Cowlishaw, formerly of Blloomlield. The "Herald" says that the average politician who " wheedles into office in this country" does so with "easy confident ignorance." Mr. Athorne, manager of the Warragul Butterand Cheese Factory, has almost elosed with an offer of a similar appoint. mont at Newtown, near Hobart Tasmania. In consequence of his contemplated departure from Warragul, Mr. Athorne disposed of his pony cart by raffle, Mr. it. C. I'atterson being the winner.
