STATE SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
STATE SOCIALISM. "The ever fruitful field of life Were better surely bare, Than nourishing to monster growth The weary weeds of care. SIR,-I am glad to notice that the correspondence begun in your columns under the heading "Whose world is this ?" is now being carried on below the more appropriate title of "State Socialism." " Radical's " second letter on the subiect is quite unworthy of the writer of the first letter writtete over that signature, and does not compel detailed notice. "The world probably gets better work done at less cost in every depart. ment of life under the present system than under any -other which could possibly be invented." Thus the "Argus," dated April 21st, 1894, concludes a long sub-leader, which teenms with facts and yields a thousand reasons for reaching a conclusion which directly negatives its own, and, as a Socialist, I wish the article could be reprinted in ev,ry news. paper in Australia. What is the condition of the people to-day in our own town and ...
GOLDEN GRAINS. PICKED UP LOCALLY AND ELSEWHERE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
GOLDEN GRAINS. PICKED UP LOCALLY AND ELSEWHERE. .0 The ground being worked by Com. plin Bros., a few hundred yards up the creek from Bear Creek-bridge, at South Warragul, is showing favorable prospects. The shaft is now down between 40 and 50ft, and heavy basalt boulders are being brought to the sur face. They expect to find the wash beneath this formation. The water, has given an amount of trdiible fronP time to time, but the recent construc tion of an underground drain running from near the shaft down to the creek carries off most of the drainage, and work is, in consequence, being more rapidly advanced. It is very probable that an English syndicate will work some of the blocks adjoining the claim of the South War ragul Gold Mining Company. If the anticipations concerning the latter are realised, English money will certainly be forthcoming to develop some of the adjoining country. Things will then "hbum" with a vengeance. A drill would do splendid service just now at South Warragu...

A BIG DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
A BIG DIFFERENCE. " Woman's true vocation," said a well know French writer, " is that of wife and worker." But in our present state of society every woman cannot follow her vocation. If she wishes to earn her own living she finds that woman's work is chiefly confined to that of the domestic servant, the bar maid, the ballet girl, the governess, a school teacher and the type writer. The latter calling is very popular with impecunious young ladies. A lady type writer possessing an office in town has an amount of freedom which she would not get in any other sphere of work. " What a lucky girl she is," said a lady to me the other day, re ferring to the daughter of a late well known professional man. " Has she married a rich squatter 2" 1 asked. " Oh, no ! only barmaids and waitresses do that nowadays-has got a post as type writer in the Bank at x£70 a year. There are two of them at the same salary." Thus £110 a year is paid to lady type writing corresponding clerks, where previously £80...

THE Warragul Guardian TUESDAY, MAY, 15TH 1894. That Departmental Refusal. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
THE Iiarngtrul nuavbian TUESDAY,I MAY, 15rU 1894. That Departmental Refusal. THE public have not yet heard the last ' of the refusal of the Agricultural Department to analyse samples of sugar beet for the farmers who have this season grown experimental patches 4. to test the suitableness of the soil and climate for the successful production of the crop. The general opinion is evidently antagonistic to the action of a department which professedly exists for the exclusive benefit of the farmer, and which, forsooth, denies him the little information lie seeks at its hands. It is very rarely indeed that the departunent is asked to furnish down Ic right practical knowledge, such as the 11 analysis of beet would afford, and it is therefore all the more surprising that it should fail to jump at an oppor tunity to %indicate its usefulness to the agricultural interests. Perhaps the explanation lay in the fact that the farmers, of all people in this discon tented world, are the very last to s...
HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
HINTS ON ADVERTISING Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scared kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the necessary ex penses of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done at all. If you have a good business iyou should advertise, lest competitors should take advantage of the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is small you should advertise, and let the public know where you are and what you have to sell, that they may come and buy. Trying to do business without adver tising is like making faces in the dark; you may know what you are about, but others do not. The man who, without interruption can keep his name before the public, is constantly informing possible cus tomers who lie is, where he is to be found, and what lie is prepar...
TO-MORROW'S BANQUET THE MENU. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
TO-MORROW'S BANQUET THE MENU. The details of the Knife and Fork Banquet, to be held to-morrow in the school-room adjoining the Wesleyan Church, have been arranged on an extensive and very attractive scale, and, judging by the number of tickets disposed of, will be numnerously patronised by the general public. A glance at the menu supplied us for the information of people who have, not a very clear or comprehensive notion of the dishes embraced in a repast of this character, will suffice to indicate that there will.be nothing of the conven tional Tea Meeting tinge about the affair, and that the most voracious appetite will find ample to satisfy its largest demand'.

A NEW GIPPSLAND SHIRE. THE FIRST "ROW." ALL ABOUT A BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
A HEW CIPPSLAND SHIRE. THE FIRST " ROW." ALL ABOUT A BANK. The Councillors of the recently. constructed Shire of South Gippelanl are-Councillors Jones (President), Deishman, Darroch, Condon, Buckley, Richards, Jackson, Davis,. and Synan. They met on Wednesday last, and straightway began to bully each other with all the force of experienced hands. The dispute arose over the receipt of the following communication from Mr. Whitehead, Manager of the Bank of Australasia, at Foster: " In reply to the application made by your finance committee for an overdraft up to £500, Ibeg to advise you that the bank is willing to grant the accommodation, provided a guarantee is given by the councillors. I have been informed that Mr. Presi dent Jones has stated that he will not sign a guarantee and so I beg to advise you that the bank will accept the guarantee without his signature, Taking into consideration that yours is a new shire and the account one indirectly affecting the ratepayers generally, th...
THE CANAIGRE PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
THE CANAIGRE PLANT. The " Mildura Cultivator" remarks that the cultivation of canaigre, for the extraction of the tannic acid which it contains, is attracting a good deal of attention, and many inquiries for information about the methods of raising the plants have been made at the "Cultivator" office by settlers. News has just come to hand from A:merica of the results of experiments mnade at two agricultural stations there. from these it appears that the plant is very easily cultivated, and tLat while it is suited to a dry soil and climate, it grows more luxuriously aided by irrigation. Roots planted in the spring of 1891 will perfect a crop during the summer of 1805 that will yield 12 tons to the acre. This crop of roots is worth £2 per ton in their green state, or will work up into two tons of dry extract that is worth £20 per ton, or £10 per acre. The cost of cultivationis put at less than £3 10s per acre, and the cost of converting the roots into theo extract about 6s per ton, o...

Dull Boys and Mechanical Ability. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
Dull Boys and ]Ieehanleal Ability. Great has always been the comfort that the parents of boys dull at their books have had in thinking that they would probably be particularly bright in some otherdirection. If there was any doubt about it, the fact could always ~e proved by stories of artists, writers and musicians, who have been thought dull ards at school. But mechanical genius and dullness at books do not, it is said, go hand in hand. The director of a large western school of manual training says of such cses: "Asa rule, such a boy fails to show marked ability of any sort. A boy who comes to us with a passion for machinery, who cannot be kept away from engines, the rattle of cogs and the. snapping of belts, never gets beyond a sort of morbid, simple curiosity to 'see the wheels go round.' He develops no curiosity nor the ability to do good, ac curate work. His book work is of avery similar character."-New York Post.
An Apparent Paradox. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 15 May 1894
An Apparent Paradox. "I had always been taught that cold contracts and heat expands," said Har old Burw~l, "but I have had an ex perience that is different. In my office I use incandescent lights, and on my desk I have an upright bulb, with a standard. The shade was broken on it, and I placed it on top of the desk in a corner between thewall and a cabinet of pigeonholes. The other morning on entering the office I hung my derby hat on this bulb. Later on I went into an adjoining room, which was dark, and needing some light. pushed the button in the wall that set the electric lamps aflame. The lights gave the place such a cheerful aspect, it being a stormy day outside, that I did not turn them off. At noon, when I was going out to lunch, I reached for my hat, and it was baked. "The incandescent lamp, which had been aglow all the while, had made it very hot, and the leather band was so drawn and contracted that I couldn't get my hat on my head. It simply sat on the top of my cranium li...
