PROSPECTS OF THE SEASON. AGRICULTURAL AND DAIRYING. THE LOCAL OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
PROSPECTS OF THE SEASON. - ---4--,---- - AGItICULTUliAL AND DAITRYING. THE LOCAL OUTLOOK. The season's prospects. from the poin of view of both dairymen and agricultlsral ists are of the most encouraging character. The grass is fully six weeks earlier than in previous years and some of the early oats are already over 2ft. high. The transformation produced by the bush fires has been followed by another trans formation of an even more marked and conspicuous character, vast areas of what was a few months ago unsightly black. ened country having given place to pad docks of verdant crops and a prolific groivth of succulent pasture. The whole country side is a beautiful picture of Nature and there are absolutely no indi cations whatever of the devastation wrought by the scourging fires in the early months of the year. The rain came just when it was wanted, and is now being followed by days of genial sunshine. All the creeks are running full, and farmers gencrally agree that the recent dow...
WHAT PEOPLE SAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
WHAT PEOPLE SAY. MBr. Cromie says: The excursion trains which the Railway department have been running lately play havoc with all country storekeepers. Busi ness is flat and dull for two or three weeks afterwards, as the people go to Melbourne for their purchases. It may be alright for the Railway De partment, but it seriously affects the returns of the country businesses. Mr. Goode, stationmaster, says that so far as he knows there is absolutely no foundation for the rumor that the Commissioner of Railways intends to erect a barricade at the entrance to the station for the purpose of charging the public admission to the platform. Mr. Walker says his Bloomfield store has proved such a financial success that he has opened a branch at Yarragon, where he considers there is a big scope for a cash business. Mr. M'Neil-rubbing his hands " Yes, our extensive alterations will be completed in a week. One of the finest stores in the colony, 4,000 feet of floor space, with stock to corres pond...
The West Gippsland Gazette. WARRAGUL, OCTOBER, 4, 1898. THE GARDEN OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
?tlest Oippstand Sagette. WVARRAGUL, OCTOBER, 4, 1898. A journey through the THE GARDEN timbered areas of Gipps OF land in the earlier IcrTORIA. months of theyear would scarcely have given the traveller the impression that he was passing through the Garden of Victoria. Immense stretches of fertile country weie then little better in appearance than wretched blackened wastes. For mile upon mile the imagination could see the word "desolation" writ large upon the face of the earth by the cruel finger of fire. On every hand was heard the wail of ruin and des pair, and in almost every paddock the partially-roasted stock accentuated the lamentations of distracted settlers. The grass vanished in a night and hardly avestige of vegetation remained for the sustenance of man and beast. It was a time of severe trial for every farmer in the smitten portions of the Province and nothing but a stoical spirit of endurance could possibly have withstood the strain. Several months have passed since then...

FALSE ECONOMY ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
FALSE ECONOMY ON THE FARM. In the course of some highly sarcastic comments on bad methods in farming. Mr Miner says. I have seen clay One of our farmers practised econ omy one year ago last fall by ploughing his ground, sowing his wheat on the furrow, and then dragging it in with a disc harrow, and as it turned out he saved much labor in harvesting hIs crop. This is economy on the farm. but poor economy. WTe find poor economy in letting our fences go untouched or patched up with rotten rails, until our stock gets out and tramps down grass and grain, while we chase aftePthem longer than a candidate for, : town- office. Econoiny is practised by a good many by letting thelr'fruit trees go wit.hout pruning, spraying, or manuring, thus receiving for their economical .saving of time and labor poor, wormy fruit, or none at all. Many seem to think that it is economy to furnish our corn and potato crops with all the weeds that will possibl)y grow, perhaps cultivating once to get the weed.s s...
WATERMELONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
WATERMELONS. In the bul!!etin issued by the Georiia Expetrinlent Station. 3;It Hugh N. Starnes gives muiil interesting information con cerning the cultivtiation of w\aterm.lots, front which we take the following: coil.--rVhile the watermnelon will read ily :.commodate itself to a variety of soils, the best is a warm, light, well drained soil on a clay subsoil, which gives up its moisture little by little for the benefit of the plant. Wet soil is the worst enemy of the melon, but at the same time the soil must not be too dry. A soil rich in humus will produce size at the expense of quality. At least four yeari should intervene between melon crops on the same land. The land should be thoroughly prepared before seeding.: Manuring.-The best fertiliser for a melon crop is a crop of cow peas'on the land the previous year, and next to this a good dressing of stable manure ploughed under in the autumn. The ad dition of,3' cwt of super or other acid phosphate and 3'l cwt kainit per acre vwil...

THE ANONYMOUS CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
T HE ANONYilOUS CORRES PO.D.N7.DN This is how the Rev. Silas IIt.ekiin, the distinguished preacher and author, expresses himself about thel anonymous correspondent. : Many years ago I .got into the habit, whten opening my letters, of looking first at the signature, and when I dis covered that my correspondent desired to remain anonymous, or signed him self a: "Well Wisher,' 'or "'A Grieved Admirler" or "A' Pained D)isciple of the Master," or used some particularly religious term. I knew that I was in for sunile severe criticism and ilost. likely not a little abuse. Now. read ing anonymous corres-pondence is. ais : rule. a very profitless enployment ; hence, for : ,good manyyealrs now, whenever I come across 1a letter signed "A Brother in the Lord," or something of that kind, I throw it at'once into the fire or intro the waste-paper basket un read. ABUSIVE LEI ITERS. It is not a little significant that some of the most abusive letters 1 have ever received have been written by people ...

A TALK ABOUT SPRING CLEANING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898
A T.AL.K AIOUT. SPRING CLEANING. Says a contemporary:--'In the spring : housewife's fancy lightly turns to :houghts of dust." if we may thus plagi :.rise and alter the poet's words. With a sigh, you tufn from the outside world. and rapidly begin to review in her prac 1 ie.l mind how and when each apart mnent is to receive its annual cleaning, vwhat new carpets your purse may af ford. and in which rooms new paint and papering is most necessary. In a few days the male portion of the household begin to discern with uneasy anxiety the well known ominous signs of the annual upheaveal which experience has taught th-nm to dread more than storm or earth quake. D)ay by day the chaos becomes more hopeless, the house more uncom fortabie, and the careworn mother yet more worried and harassed. The worst of things comes to an end undoubtedly, and in the course of time the great spring cleaning exhausts itself and once more peace and traniuillity reign. Now, what has been the result of it all? The...
