NURSERY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

NURSERY NOTES. In sewing buttons on underlinen, it will be found a very good plan to place a large needle between- the button, and material. When the stitches are made the needle is withdrawn, and the cotton wound round. This prevents the button being so closely sewn that little fingers cannot manage to fasten it. Children should never be allowed to wear garters at any age. The simplest form of suspender is a piece of elastic with a large linen button at one -end sewn on to the stays or waistcoat. Loops of tape are sewn to the stockings, and attached to the buttons above.

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

USEFUL HINTS.. Half a dozen books should find a place in every guest's room. A meal should never be announced until cverything is In readiness. The best way to keep lemons fresh is to pack them in moist sand. A squeeze of lemon improves scranib. led eggs. find should be added while they are cooking. In a basin of water salt, of course, sinks to the bottoml; so never soak salt fish with the skin side down. If rubbed with fresh lemon or orange peel knives and forks will be thoroughly freed from the taste of fish.. A little cream rubbed into black kid gloves will prevent the dye from coming off. It also gives them a nice gloss. To brown a baked custard, sift lightly over the top a little powdered sugar as soon as the surface is cooked enough to bear it up. If a fire requires blowing to give it a good start, it will be found that blowing down into the flames makes it burn up more brightly and quickly than if blown from underneath. This is a prize recipe for making good Tea:-First have t...

A NEW MILK CAN COVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

A NEW MILK CAN COVER,. A milk can cover has been .patented. by Elmer E. Harvey, Dolington, Pa., which is designed to permit thorouglh ventilation of the milk while cooling, so as to avoid the disadvantages incurred by hermetically sealing the can while the milk Is still warm. The cover also. permits the can fo lie sealed ready fol shipment after the milk has cooled. 01 our illustrations, for which we are in debted to the "Scientific American," the larger is a perspective view of the en tire cover, and the smaller a perspec tive view of the ventilating and sealing* closures. " The cover is provided with a. stopper or cylindrical maIn portion sur mounted by posts which support a con vex shield slightly overhanging the side edges, so as to shed rain away from the stopper.

NOSES OUT OF PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

NOSES OUT OF PLACE. "The average person believes that his nose is in the middle of his face, and would doubtless he much surprised at hearing that he was wrong," says a doc tor. "Still, it is a fact that comparative ly few noses are exactly straight. quite a large proportion being inclined either to one side or the other. In this connection a friend of mine, a dentist, once had a rather curious experience. He had made a set of teAth for a lady. who refused them on the ground that the middle tooth was out of line with the middle of her nose. An insinuation that the nose might be at fault aroused so much indignation that the whol:' affair nearly ended in the law courts. But, fortunately, at the last moment, her friends succeeded in per sunrli:.?g lscr thnt there w:1es :ctually far more reason for the dentist's c nt-ntit.n than she had been willing to admit."''

"A MODEL DAIRY FARM." [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

"A MOI)EL I)AIRY FARM." The Government dairy experts having -noticed the brief article in our last issue entitled " A Model Dairy Farm," were so impressed with the statements-- made therein, that they determined to pay a special visit to 'Mr. Hollier's little farm. They spent several hours there, and were delighted with what they saw, having nothing but praise for Mr-. Hollier, his beautiful cows, and his methods of carrying on his dairying operations-in short, as Mr. Potts said to the representative of the Gazette, speaking on behalf of himself and Mr. Crowe: " It is one of the brightest examples we have met with in the whole colony." Coming from such a source, this is praise indeed, and we congratulate MIr. Hollier ac cordingly. Messrs. Potts and Crowe also ex pressed a very high opinion of the Trafalgar Butter Factory, saying that, for its size, it was one of the best in in Victoria, and they prophesy that it will become a much more important concern than it is at present.

AROUND THE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

AROUND THE DISTRICT. (BY OUR TRAVELLING REPORTER.) Farmers throughout the district are sanguine of a prosperous season. The crops are looking well, the grass is coming on splendidly, and up to the present everything has been favor able to our producers. Many farmers in West Gippsland have put small areas under onions this season, being encouraged to do so by the high prices which have ruled of late years. Of course, onions re quiring so much attention, only a limited amount of ground can be put under crop, but some of our local farmers have planted up to 4 or 5 acres with them. A clearing sale is a favorite place for our farmers to gather together and talk over matters, as well as do busi ness. During the last week or two clearing sales have been held in various parts of the district-at Darnum, Trafalgar, Buln Buln, and Jindivick-and the attendance at each has been very large. The item, "Luncheon included," which almost invariably appears on the advertise ments announcing these sale...

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

SPORTING. On Wednesday last the Half-Holiday Club met Brandy Creek on the latter's ground, when the former won very easily. Scores: Half-Holiday, 10 goals 16 behinds; Brandy Creek, 3 goals 0 behinds. The Drouin footballers failed to keep their engagement with Warra gul, and thus forfeited the match. The football season is practically over, and soon the devotees of the noble game of cricket will be in dulging in their favorite pastime. The Yarragon club has lodged two protests against the Warragul club, and the Association will pro bably decide them to-night. Yarragon and Half-Holiday meet to-morrow at Warragul. The twelve months' disqualification inflicted on the well-known racehorse Confusion has expired. During his enforced retirement from the turf, Confusion has been running in his owner's (W. Stribling) paddocks, near Warragul, and as the old horse is perfectly sound, he will probably be put in training again, and should add to his long list of victories in jumping races. It may...

THE NEW ECONOMICS. THE LABOR EXCHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

THE NEW ECONOMICS. THE LABOR EXCHANGE. Owing to the rapid and universal fall of prices throughout the civilized world during the last 20 years, and the consequent increase in the purchasing power of gold, public attention has been drawn to the subject, in order to devise a remedy which shall be both sound in theory, and reducible to practice. This has been achieved by the Labor Exchange Association of America, where over 300 branches are now in active operation, control lingmiillions of dollars worth of wealth. The system dispenses altogether with gold and silver money, and balances all its exchanges on paper money, secured on wealth (production). When understood, it amounts to a revolution in thought and practice, and promises the most stupendous consequences for the welfare of the producer. Its advocates claim the practical abolition of competition and overproduction by the constant main tenance of its money in circulation, and a complete solution of the old age pension question, ...

A. N. A. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

A. N. A. A very enjoyable time was spent by the members of the Warragul branch of the A.N.A., at a smoke night held in the Shire Hall on Tuesday last, and before the gathering seperated, the President-Mr. A. C. Lewis-made a very complimentary reference to MIr. Wilkinson, treasurer of the branch, who is shortly leaving Warragul for Queensland. He said that Mr. Wil kinson had made a model treasurer, had been a good friend to the lodge, and they all much regretted the loss of his support. (Applause). Mir. Wilkinson, in acknowledging the compliment, said he had come into close contact with members of the lodge during his residence in War ragul, and took the opportunity of expressing his thanks for the kindly manner in which he had been at all times treated. As regards his official duties as treasurer, they had been very light, and he sincerely wished the lodge every success in the future. (Applause).

A SUNNY CREEK FARM. £200 A YEAR FROM 18½ ACRES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

A SUNNY CREEK FARM. £200 A YEAR FROM lPs ACRES. One of the most thriving little com munities in Gippsland is located in the vicinity of Sunny Creek, between Yarragon and Trafalgar. '[he hold ings are all small-from 18 to 60 acres-lbut the land is first-class and those settled on it use it to the best advantage, consequently even those with the smallest blocks manage to earn a comfortable living. A typical example of a Sunny Creek farmer is Mr. W. 11. Matthews, who owns 18- acres. Hle has only been about four years on his present hold ing, but it would be diflicult to find a better managed little farm in Gipps land. Being an experienced onion grower, he devotes between one and two acres to this crop-Brown Spanish being the variety lie plants-and the suitability of the soil for onion-growing is demonstrated by the fact that last year he obtained a yield of 11 tons from an acre and a-quarter, for which he realised the handsome return of £93 nett, the quality being so good that up to £1...

BULL FIGHTS IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

BULL FIGHTS IN FRANCE. A few days ago, at Nimes, the third bull-fight of the season took place (says "Public Opinion" of the 22nd ult.), and the famous matadors, Guerta and Re verte, were the heroes of the ring. To the shame of France, be it said, this fight is reported at considrable length in the most largely circulated paper of the country, " Le Petit Journal," without a word of protest. It says the place was crowd ed to such an extent that the spectators had to stand inside. All round the top of the outside wall there was a ring of onlookers, which, as the reporter says, composed a new kind of crown for the old Roman amphitheatre. There were many foreigners and npany ladies in lovely dresses. Under a bright sun the scene was simply magnificent. The reporter (who appears to be an enthusiast in blood spilling) says unfor tunately the entertainmnent was not so successful as had been hoped, because the bulls did not display such courage as is usual with them. The crowd was very much...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

TJiE FLOWER GARDEN. In planting dahlias the mistake "s often made of planting strong, old roc;s in back, whereas sturdy single stems. with few or no tubers, give by far the best results. The former push up nru merous growths, which only serve to wea ken and.smother each other, but the sin gle stems branch freely, llower early and) profusely. It pays well to shift rooted cuttings into 6-inch pots to grow them onr until ready to plant in the open .border. Old clumps should be divided when the shoots are about three inches long, one or two tubers retained with each shoot being ample. Seedlings of hollyhocks raised early, if kept growing along, Till slower towards the end of autumn. Cut tings rooted as previously advised mayh be placed in their permanent quarters. Old plants of herbaceous lobelias shouldi be divided and re-planted. Victoria andl Cardinalis are two of the best, and theil (rich colored foliage and intense crimeori flowers make a striking display in the flower garden. The ...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 4 October 1898

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. The thinning of crops should be done as soon as the plants are large enoughl to distinguish which are the best to re tain. In dry weather thinning is liable to expose the roots of the permanent plants to the Influence of sun and air. With small beds, this danger is over come by watering afterwards to settle the soil around the roots, but with large breadths of carrots, parsnips, and onions It is different, and a dull, quiet day; should be chosen, and if done just before rain is expected so much the better, but should this not follow, a rake drawnr lightly betweeni the rows will fill up the crevices. Parsnips should be thinned from 6 to 9 inches between the roots. and as the young ones are of no service, such work should be done early. It is not so with carrots, as unless these have been sown much too thickly they may be allowed to attain a serviceable size before thinning commences, the young tender roots being much appreciated. If. however, through careless sowi...
