CORRESPONDENCE. A LIBELLOUS PARAGRAPH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
CORRESPONDENCE. A LIBELLOUS PARAGRAPH. TO TI1H EDITOR. Sir,-I little anticipated that so soon after handing over the IVarragul Guar ditan to its proprietor--Mr. T. A. Pettit, of Traralgon-my reputation would have bLen assailed in the cohunuis of that jour nal. In the issue of your contemporary of the 7th inst, however, the following libellous paragraph appears. OUn SPrreL:?s.ars.-Subscribers will notice that our supplement published to-day is of a new order. The explanation is, that our former supplement has been transferred to a new office by a side-wind, of which more may be heard. Under these circumstances we have to ask the indulgence of our sub scribers for the delay, with our regret for any annoyance caused thereby, and for which we are not accountable. The paragraph, of course, implies that by under-hand and dishonorable means I had been party to depriving the Guardian lof its usual weekly supplement and having the same transferred to the office of the TVest Gilppsland Gazett...
POOWONG NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
POOWONG NORTH. I think that the only matters occupy. ing the greater part of the attention of people out here are the measles and the very serious losses of stock. Most of the families have had a taste of measles in a severe form. I think most of the farmers whose houses were destroyed by the bush fires have moved into their new homes. I expect the new church will soon be ready for opening, and that it will be out of the contractor's hands in about a week's time.
THE COLOR OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
THE COLOR OF THE SEA. The changes in the color of the sea have attracted the attention of seafaring men from the earliest times. Numerous theories were offered in explanation of these changes, some ascribing them to the varying color of the sea-bottom, some to the difference in depth, others to the presence of certain coloring sub stances, others, again, to the chemical composition of the water. Most of these suggestions contained an element of truth, although no one of them. taken by itself, sufficed to account for the al teration in color which had often been observed to occur in the course of a few hours' sail, and within a distance mea suring less than a ship's length. Of late years, as the reader is aware, numerous scientific expeditions have been fitted out and despatched by the Governments of England, Norway and America, for the express purpose of exploring the secrets of the deep. Among the problems which have nowforthe first time receivedsatis factory solution, new light ha...
A GOOD STRAINING DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
A" GOOD STRAINING DEVICE. The cut, Fig. 1, shows how a p!ece of cheese cloth is used, folded once or twice, as fastened over the top of each can, such as We use on our dairy farm Fig. 1. Fig. 2 shows another plan, a wire strainer and cheese cloth combined. Having a good strainer at hand, we are using the device shown at Fig. 2 at present. Fig. 2. I WVe strain our milk twice before sep arating. A fine brass wire strainer fits over the feed pan of the cream separa tor, through which all the milk passes on its way to the separator bowl. It pays to take pains to strain milk thoroughly, even when no foreign mat ter is visible, in a well-regulated dairy. And it is in just such dairies, where the greatest pains are taken, that the best butter is made. This shows that, if the farmer or dairyman takes the trouble to furnish pure milk, the rest of the treat ment of the product will be generally satisfactory. Fig. 2 shows an arrangement for fas tening the cheese cloth underneath the wire strai...

FASHIONS STYLES IN SHOES. Smart Boots—New and Dainty Evening Shoes and a Bag For Carrying Them. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
STYLVS 'N SHOES. Smart Boots-New and Dainty Eventul Shoes and a Bag For Carrying Them. Shoes, though a much neglected item, are a particularly important one in a woman' dress. There is a good deal of character li, a pair of boots or shoes. They are to S(n: SHOES AND SHOE IBAG. extent an index to the mind of the wearer. To see awoman appropriatelyand carefully shod seems to indicate a proper self respect and a certain decision of character. A well booted woman generally walks well, or at any rate fairly well, for to walk absolutely well is a rare accomplishment. But there is no disguise about the ungainly shamble of the woman in loose, ill shaped boots or shoes. The straight toe cap is very smart forddat wear, and the prettiest boots are in patent leather, with glace kid tops. Taste in even ing shoes is less whimsical than a s:eson or two ago, when gold and silver kid, tinsel gorgeous brocades and antique paste orna ments were the fashion. Satin and glace are the materials principall...
LUCKY TRIBUTERS. £20 A DAY FOR A MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
LUCKY TRIBUTERS. £20 A- DAY FOR A MONTH. The.party of six tributers who con tracted themselves out of the: scope of the Mines Act in order to work a surface block: of the Llanberris Com pany's ground, at 'Ballarat, are regu larly obtaining rich patches of gold on the Indicator. Since June 9, when, after a period of'profitless work, they first "struck it rich," their claim, which is being worked by means of a windlass at less than 100ft in depth, has yielded 695oz. of gold, and im mediately after they had smelted 127oz., another patch of 182oz., of specimens, about three-parts of which is gold, were broken out. Although the men irre working in a desultory manner, they liave, in. this conpiarativety short period, won up wards of £3"000 worth of gold, and their average individual earnings since the date mentioned lhave been little under £20 per day. The rich patches invariably occur where small veins cross the indicator --a narrow seam or vein running right through the country on a nor...

MESSENGERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
MESSENGERS. God though', and a simple flower rose In a grass tuft by the road, Where a sage, with a frown of thought in his eyes. I?y. the Ihutuble daisy strode: "I have mapped the worlds; I have weighed. themu What limits the human will?" The south wind nodded the daisy's head, And the sage stared, and stood still. God breathed in an obscure poet's heart A song of his love for men. A great king sat on a splendid throne, With sceptre and diadem. "I have conquered the world; the world, fa? mine, What power so brave, so strong, As to thwart my wish?" A courtier near Hummed the unknown poet's song. God gave of Himself to a woman's soul, And I-e led her down from heaven; "Fairer than flower and sweeter than song, Toll thou the truth I have given." And the pride of learning, the pride of might, The slander, the thought of ill, Shrank back from the light of her loveliness. Read Truth in her eyes, and were still. --Amy W. Mitchell.

IN THE AIR. THE FIRST BALLOON. A POPULA CRAZE, WITH MUCH DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
IN THE AIR. THiE FIRST IALLOON. A POPULA CRAZE, WITH atr;CIH DA'NGER. Ballooning is not an invention of later times. So far back as 1670 a Jesuit father, Pierre Francois Lana, published a folio entitled "Nuovo metodo per poter viaggiare in aria dentro una barca soste nuta da globi volantl." . . The Mont golflers were rich paper manufacturers, men of thought and scientific research. For years their 'minds had been ab sorbed in the fascinating subject of aerial voyages; the object of their lives was to perfect Lana's rude conception and to find some means by which the balloon could ascend aloft and penetrate the vast region of' cloudland. To this end they devoted their time and their money. Their experiments were in the direction of finding a gas strong enough to bear the balloon upwards. In this they were long unsuccessful. Their first balloon ascended by burning a heap of damp straw mixed with wool under neath the machine.- The Mnintgolfiers were aware that these fire balloons touch...
HOW TO WIN THE BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
HOW TO WIN THE BOYS. Light bright fires in the home at night. Illuminate your rooms. Hang pictures upon your walls. Put books and maga zines and newspapers upon your tables. Have music and entertaining games. In vent occupations for your sons. Stim ulate their ambitions in worthy direc tions. While you make home their de light,fill them with higher purposes than more pleasure. Whether they pass boy hood and enter upon manhood with high tastes and noble ambitions depends on you. With exertion and right means, a mother may have more control over the destiny of ber boys than any other influence whatever.-"Leanmington Par ochial Magazine."
HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
HEALTH H INTS. It does not follow that sick persons are asleep because their eyes are shut; they may be acutely conscious of all that is passing in the room, though unable or unwilling to make any sign: and nothing can be more nerve provoking than hush ing and whispering around and creaking about on the tips of their toes. A Cure for Pneumonia. - Pneumonia can be cured if the person will apply promptly over the lungs a poultice or draft made of mustard and flax seed meal, keeping quiet and warm in bed. Prompt action is of vital importance. Mustald is an old. fashioned cure, and its healing virtues can hardly be over estimated. Don't Rub the Eye.-When you get :t cinder or speck or other offensive par ticle in your eye, don't rub it. Don't touch it. Don't pull dcown the lid. Don't put your hand near it. Let it alone. This is very hard advice to follow, and in nine cases out of ten you will find your self rubbing your eye before you know it. But if you can refrain from touch ing your e...
