A STORY OF TWO WEDDINGS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

A STORY OF TWO WEDHINGS When Drood H:u'ris heard the hebery, musical laugh of his wife in the parlor as he sat in the library, he lahid aside his book, tossed his cigar from the win dow andl went to the scene of mnerri menL Though they had two little tots that precluded the possibility of gloomi ness in the household, the father was as much a lover as in the days of his court ship, and would have been Irresistibly attracted by that laugh, even though his business in hand had been much more serious. "What is it now, little one':" ie asked, with a sympathetic smile as lie entered. The diminutive title did not at all lit the glowing and happy young matron to whom it was applied, for she was tall, graceful, and possessed ..of that rare beauty which is found in expression rather than in analysis of features. Hier feelings flashed upon her face with .a distinctness that was riot to be mista ken by those who knew her well. "I was just going to tell Miss Archley about the time your-father i...

TRAMPS DIARIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

TRAMPS D:ARIES. Trarnmps' Diaries seem to be the "fas hionr" just now and far the most inter esting specimen of one is begun in the current number of the "Social Gazette," issued by the Salvation Army. This gentleman wastes no time on an intro duction, but begits his story abruptly. We givEP a glimpse of the diarist's ex periences and style: Tuesday, July 20, 1897.--Iose from hay stack at sunriset washed, and break fasted on two stalks of rhubarb annexed from a garden. Passed through Lapford 10 :amn. Saw a cart-load of coals lying at a door. Off, red to put 'enm in for a pint of tea and a bit of bread. No; the woman wouldn't let me.

'Let me change the wording-I am not to seek your presence again without some desire on your part to see me. That is cruel. But I give you my . -word as a man to abide by the provi slone; only I would like you to promise me in return that if at some future time you need a friend's help you will call upon Jack Travers.

CHAPTER VI.—THE ROOM THAT FACED EDINBURGH CASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

CIHAPTER I.'--TTTE ROOMf THAT FACED EDINBURGH CASTLE. Jack amuses himself the following day about the city, taking a tram ride down to Leithi. and watching the fisher men there and it Newhaven come in with their catch. Then he spends some time up at the Castle-a most fascinating spot for all temporary sojourners in Edinburgh; ob serves the IIighlanders go through their drill, and, like all Yankees, mentally compares themn with the boys in blue at home. The view is simply magnificent-with the beautiful city sweeping in a circle around Castle Hill. and the blue waters of that great arm of the sea, the Firth of Forth, stretching past less 'than two miles distant. Ah Sin attracts a great deal of atten tion, but it is hard to disturb the equan imity of a good-rantured John China man: so t;-at he takes their rude jests and gibes with a smilt' that is child-like and bland, th:ugh on sev-oral occasions it might be noticed. whe-nev!"r an audac ious youngster dares to clutch at his queue.

CRICKET AND COURTESY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

CBICKET .AND COURTESY. If a man possesses any good qualities, cricket will most surely develop them. It is a game which calls constantly for little acts of courtesy and self-denial, rand no one who plays it can help feeling the better for its influence. Indeed, it would he a well-nigh impossible task to t(ronicle the instances of true nobility which occur every summer on cricket grounds. Late last season two friendly profes sionals found themselves opposed to each other in a match which was fraught with the most vital consequen ces for both of them. One wanted but two runs to gain the batting average for his side, and the other had merely to take one wicket to secure a large prize for the best bowling record. With ordin ary luck both would have managed these simple tasks easily enough; but it so happened that the bowler sprained his shoulder, and could only manipulate the leather with great difficulty. On coming down to take his place at the crease, professional number one heard tha...

JESUS IN THE MIDST. [Abridged.] [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

JESUS IN THE MtDMT. By A. M. FAIRBAIRN, LL.D., Principal of Mansfield College, Oxford. [Abridged.] And He bearing His cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha: where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.-John xix. 17. IS. These things are an allegory, though they are not entirely allegoric. They are events that happened in time, but they represent allegories that have been from eternity and to eternity will remain. Cal vary is an epitome of tfme; it is a stage that shows in process the tragedy that condenses as into a mould the conflict and the issue of the ages. As a lake. as it looks into the face of heaven, reflects the measureless stars, so this, through the seeming darkness and discord, is like a glass in which we can see the glory of God. There they crucified Him, and though they did not mean it, the cross made Him diviner and mo'e imperish able. Calvary can never more ...

ADVICE TO BEGINNERS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

ADViCE TO BEGINNIERS To bring any occupation up to a pay lng or profitable success it is necessary to observe proper methods. One man will make a complete failure in a busi ness, and another man will take the same business, in the same place, and under identical conditions, and make it a complete success. Poultry raising as a business is too generally looked upon as an occupation requiring little effort and needing tri vial attention. The idea to some extent prevails that all that is necessary is to throw out plenty of food-the cheaper the better-and the hens will do the rest. Under such treatment liens will certain ly rest, but they will not become profit able. There are more failures in poultry breeding due to carelessness and neglect than in any other business. The care less man is always having mishaps and "bad luck." When these tribulations of his are traced out the results are not in the least astonishing. Hens are set before they can be relied upon to stick to the eggs, and t...

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION By J. TWTOMEY. It is a matter for regret that rural pursuits have little fascination for the young people of this colony. They may read about agriculture offering a fair field for moderate prosperity, comfort, and health; but few are anxious to make a livelihood by it. To sow wheat, plant vines, raise cattle, horses and sheep, and make a nice rural home for a wife and children, is not a prevailing ambition of our young men. The same with the girls. Ilow many of them desire to become farmers' wives and do such work as making bread, butter, raising poul try, and a family of children besides ? On the contrary, city life is their aim and ambition. The boys want to he well dressed, and hence work for a mis erable pittance in clerical and professional capacities, or in any avocation that will enable them to enjoy the so-called plea sures of city life, which consist, mainly of races, theatres, and the attractions of city bars. The girls hanker after the latest fashio...

FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

FARM NOTES. When wheat is grown specially for seed purposes, as distinguished from milling, it cannot be allowed to become too ripe. It may not have the same beauty in the stunple, but a thick skin is desirable, and has its advantages, protecting the vital principle when lying in a cold, wet seed bed in an untoward autumn, where on some soils thin-skin ned wheats would burst with the mois ture. So far as wheat is concerned, the value of the straw as fodder for cattle is perhaps a secondary consideration, but it is as well to remember thltt if the crop is cut before it is fully ripe the straw will e?pstain a greater degree of nourishment than if cut at a later stage. The following hint to riders, from an English contemporifry, may be well worth heeding:--hen a horse has re turned to the stable after a long ride he should by no means be unsaddled with in from half an hour to an hour after dismounting, or it may tend to the pro duction of saddle-galls, which may .be very ditlfficult to...

Part of it was an old mon astery, part of it was a renowned tea house when Kyoto was a royal city. It is surrounded by temples. Sitting on the balcony the grey-roofed town spreads for miles at one's feet. The view is magnilicent. The hotel itsrelf is a fair example of the semi-European, :emi-Japanese hostelry. The Jap in his native Inn serves the food in neat dishes. The decorations of the room are in harmony. The waiting tmaid is the most courteous of elfish crea tures.

DISASTERS AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

DISASTERS AT SEA, In the accounts of the Bourgogne dis aster, it was stated that many of the passengers allowed their lifebelts to slip down to their legs with the result that their heads were forced under the water. In reference to this melancholy incident, a representative of the "West minster" had a conversation with Mr Dibdin, the secretary of the National Lifeboat Institution. Mr Dibden stated that the lifebelt must be secured firmly to the body, or it was very likely to slip down to the legs. And when this had occurred the lifebelt must be got rid of as quickly as possible, or it would force the head of the strongest swimmer under water. If, however, the belt is confined very closely round the body, the pres sure materially affects the free action of the lungs, and impedes the muscular movement of the chest and arms. A LIFEBELT IN ZONES. In the case of lifeboat men, who al ways undergo their severe exertions with lifebelts round them, bhis matter is of great importance. To mee...

OLD VEREKER'S VAN DYCK It you had been living in Bristol in the year. 1500. you must frequently have run up against old Vereker, who then spent most of his time prowling about the streets of the west-county metrol;o lis. lie was a man who could not fail to attract attention, by reason both of his striking, old-fashioned attire-of the style which John Leech has made im mortal-and of his disregard for such everyday amenities as barbers' scissors and soap and water; for a: more unkempt and dirty-looking old aristocrat than Jan Vereker was surely never seen in the public streets. lie- was a y'ounger son of Sir I-Hudibras Vet keir, seventh baronet. whose family was among the best in Gloucestershire; though, t. be sure, this seventh baronet's lady, and Jan's mother, was a somewhat obscure foreigner, a native of Antwerp.

"'Elizabeth's intense horror," says the writer, "of publicity of any kind, heot' love of seclusion, and her ex.lui-itely beautiful antd romantic prerolnality, all contributed to render her the victim of misrepresentation that was most ludic rous. and frequently cruel. One of the most unfounded of these statements was, that she had succumnbed t the heredi tary cut':s- of the House-, of lta':'aria. This was: not true. She was brok',n hearted and bowed down by sorrows which were no fault of hers, but she w'as never de mented. The Empress's failure to gain popularity was mainly due to her lofti ness and great n...

T?HE CHAMPION CATTLE STEALER. -------4 -- At 1Warragul General Sessions on Tuesday last, before Judge Moles worth and a jury of twelve, Thomas Bunnell, alias Shannon, appeared to answer a charge of false pretences which had been preferred against him. Accused pleaded not guilty. Mr. \Woolfe Fink prosecuted on behalf of the Crown. The evidence was to the effect that on 29th June last prisoner called on Joseph Archer, a farmer residing at Garfield, and offered to sell him a cow for 30s. He ,told Archer a very plausible story, stating that he was a line-repairer living at Coburg, that he had bought a ;number of cattle in Melbourne and put them in a paddock at Pakenham, that the cattle had gone astray, and that he had been spending his holidays looking for them. He said the cow he wished to sell was one of the cattle he had lost. Archer went to look 'at the cow, which was ruining on the flats near Bunyip, and ultimately agreed to buy her- for 30s, giving a chequemin payment, for which h...
