Rough on Juries. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Rough on Juries. o- " I'dlike to put that man in the way of maknmg a little money," said the senior part nor when the caller had departed, " but I don't see any chance to do it." " What's his lino" asked the junior partner. lHe hasn't any except all-round cussed ness," replied the senior. "You see, he was born lazy." " \'ell, of course, that's a bit serious." "He lies upon the slightest provocation, he has been identified with the lowest and most disgraceful features of politics and no man who knows him will trust him for a minute. He is about the most worthless, irresponsible man I ever knew, but still I'd like to give him a chance to earn some thing." "Can't you get him osummoned for jury service."-" Chicago Evemng Post."
Whale Hunting. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Whale Hiintin, BY THULE. A fine autumn morning in the Shetland Islands. Iwas awakened by a shout of whales! whales ! whales! The shout is carried from lip to lip for miles across the country in an incredibly short time. Jump sng out of bed I dressed as quickly as pos. sible, and when I got outside could see three flags flying from the flagstaff on the lighthouse on Sumburgh Head-a soot made famous by Sir Walter Scott's novel, The Pirate-a signal that the whales are to beseen off that headland. Men and boys can be seen running in the direction of " West Voe," the nearest point where a boat can be launched to go in purenit. When Sandy Anderson (who was even known to go so far as to reprove his children for breaking the Lord's Day with their bare feet) was brought up before the Kirk Session for going to drive whales on Sunday, his only defence was that he saw " Johnny running and so he ran, too." There is something electrifying in the shout of whales to the crofter or fisherman, who ha...
Lucky Days. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Lucky Days. o Lucky dayn we think nra those Tipoed withb?rightnens tinged with rose; Days of comfort, days of sweetness, Days when life seems all completeness. Al, poor fools! We sit and wonder When the lightning and the thunder Rend apart our brightest day, Scattering rose-leaves by the way. And when clouds obscure our morn, When we dimly see the dawn, When the darkness seems so nigh, " How unlucky," then we cry. Know we not that leaven sends Light and shadow, softly blends Night and morning, heat end cold, Weed and blossom, dross and gold? Lucky days are only those That from morn to evening's close We make bright with deeds well done, Golden seeds, dropped one by one. -M. A. KIonDE.
A Beaten Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
A Beaten Parson, o I In the United Kingdom the newly created Parish Councils afford a new field for the surplus activity of clergymen. The latter are eligible as members of these ,councils, and are occasicnally elected. Oc casionally also they are not, the ratepayers having the ill taste to choose laymen a preference. A minister in the neighborhood of Glasgow was a candidate at the Parish Council Election last week, but was rejected. His annoyance was all the greater because two of his congregation, who are opposed to him in local affairs, were elected. On Sunday, however, he had his re venge.. According to the "Glasgow Mail," he chose as his subject of exposition Job xii. 1-4. in which the words occur, 'No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you. I am as one mocked of his neighbcr . the jis: upright man is laughed to scorn." How did the people take their scolding ' Well, the only information vouch...
THE GENIUS OF HERLOCK SHOLMES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
THE CENIUS OF HERLOCK SHOLMES. I was talking to my friend Herlook Sholmes when there came a knock on the door and a woman entered. " I want to e.e Mr Herlock Sholmes," she said in a quavering tone. "Very well, madam, I am he," repliedthe great detective with all the conutlinese of a great centleman. "I have a communication that I wish to make to you alone," she went on. "It is of a strictly private character, and I prefer that no third person hear it." "Madam," he replied with much for mality, " permit me to present my beet friend, Woetor Doteon. Whatever I may hear he may hear, and unless you speak to both of us yon cannot speak at all." I had risen to withdraw from the room when the lady protested against my pre sence and now eat down again. "With your assurance,'' she said to Sholmes. "I will tell you my story, and implore your assistanoo. My husband- " "I beg your pardon, madam," interrupted Sholmes, "you have not told me your name or his." "Oh, excuse me,"she said, quite embar ...

"NEW" WOMEN NEED NOT APPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
"'NEW " WOMEN NEED NOT APPLY. I like a feminine woman, and in these days, when the gentle sex compete for honors at the Universities aid what not, it is time for men who want wives, in the old sense of the terms, to raise an ideal of their own. Almost daily we hear of ladies taking degrees. I grant some men would like to marryo female M.D. I am not amongst the number. Give me a womanly wife, who will sympathise with me in all my difieculties, who will cheer me with her honest advice, who will beguile me with her affection ; not a manly woman, who would bore me with argument, weary me with her nolitics, or boas of her degree.
MY CHUM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
MIY CHUM. I have got an ideal wife, so I ought to know. Other women say that she is loand and unfeminine, but she is neither the one nor the other. It is true that she smokes, but I like her all the better for it. When first I saw her she was puffing away at a cigarette. I fell in love with her on the spot. A dainty little thing she was (and is), with a wilderness of fluffy golden hair, and a pair of merry blue eyes! I knewat once that I had met my fate -and my ideal! Dear little wife As I write she is sitting by the fire mending some well - worn garment of mine, blow ing delioat. blue clouds from a tiny eigar otte. What a consolation it is to a tired man to come home to a Sweet companion, who not only shares his sorrows and his griefs, hbut who is also g i Ung a friendly cgorerte !

POPULAR SCIENCE. Digging for Heat. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
POPULAR SCIENCE. Digging for Heat, According to M. Grousset the existence of internal terrestrial fire is not absolutely certain. It is only probable, and if he should not meet it he will not be disappointed. He finds that in mines the temperature down to a certain depth is practically equal to the average temperature above ground. Or. descending beyond that point, how. ever, the thermometer has been found to rise about Ideg. Cent. per hundred feet. He desires to test the con tinuance of this thermal law at a much greater depth than has yet been reached. Should it be found to remain constant, boil. ing point would be reached about nine or ten thousand feet below the our face, and 666deg. Cent.-a point at which nearly all bodies would be in a state of furion --some twelve and hall miles down. Of course, M. Grousset would not take Parisians down as far as the point of fusion, but only until tropical heat was reached. After that he would continue his experiments by means of borings. TH...
Washing and Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Washing and Beauty. The special fascination of an actress who has by birthright a pretty face is said to.be that sha "looks so well-washed and clean, just like a child out of a bath." Now, this is worthy ef note, for a celebrated old beauty, whose complex ion at sixty was fresher than that of our women at thirty, said that the secret of her preservation was a clean face, and this was her method :--First, she never used wash-ray or towel on her face, but washed it with her hands, rinsing it off with a soft sponge. She used clear water in the morning, but white castile soap or very warm water at night; and after drying it on a soft towel, she would take a flesh-brush and rub her cheeks, chin and forehead. Secondly, if she was going to be up late at night, she always slept as many hours in the day as she ex pected to be awake beyond her usual time. She insisted that soft water and sound sleep keep off wrinkles and spots, and girls should give more attention to this than they do, for Wi...
The "New Gas." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
The "New Gas." It would appear that Professor Dewar is not alone in his scepticism with regard to the "'ew gas" called argon. In this week's "Chemical News" Dr. T. L. Phipeon, of Pntney, who has during the last few years been making a series of investiga tions on the atmosphere, states that ha is convinced that the substance called argon is an allotropic form of nitrogen. Another technical paper, the "Electrical Review," declines to believe in the new element until further experiments have been made. Apropos of argon a good story is told in a contemporary of the way in which this strange gas received its name. When the discovery was irst annonnoed some of the Fellows of the Royal Society laughed at it and didn't believe in it, so they professed; one of them called out "Ah, garn," and the name stnok to it.
ABOVE RUBIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
ABOVE RUBIES. As I already possess an ideal wife, I had better describe her. Without being beautiful, abhe is really nice, pleasant and happy. My equal in vigor, health and mind. got a "new woman," buhot a thorough domestio helpmate. As our family is large, her economy is great, and her ewill with the aewing-machine marvelloue. Her voice is melodious; her affection and faith unbounded. She can discuss the news of the day equally well with the last new bonnet. If 1 win the guinea I shall give it her. She deserves it. A postcard is too nmall to enumerate her virtues.

WHAT A WIFE MUST BE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
WHAT A YWIFE MUST BE. To describe my idea of what my future wife meat be, I can't do better thal quote the words of a well known writer in expressing his own modest estimate of a wife's require. ments: " She must be half housemaid, half angeL" To which I must make the stipulation, for my own part, that a little bit of her ashould be-cook.

JUDICIAL INDEPENDENCE. AN OPPORTUNE ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
JUDICIAL i .DEPEHDEIECE. *AN OPPORTUNE ARTICLE. The subject of judicial independence having been raised here by the recent remarks of Judge Mioleeworth, and theletterfromhis Honor, published c..-' . and in some measure reviewed at ths m.-ting of the Law Institute recently, an article in the London "Spectator" is of ..essonable interest. Our philosophical cooe..porary deals with a recent judicial incident in EnSland ne follows: Though we cannot entertain for a moment the tupposition that Lord Herschell ever contemplated the stifling of Mr Justice Vaughan William-'a methods of investiga ting the doings cf company directors, the pro tests which the mere rumor that he was doing so excited, are of quite sufficient interest and importance to warrant their being noticed by all who observe our public affairs, and try t, understand the moving spirit within them. From one point of view, we regret these protests, for they may have been painful to Lord Bersohell. iNo man likes to be doubted, ev...
HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
HIiS WIFE. Enough of beauty to secure affection, Enough of sprightliness to cure dejection, Of moi sat dittidence to claim protection; A docile mind subservient to correction, Yet stcred with sense, with reason and reflec tion, And every nassion held in duo subjection. Ju?s faults enough to keep her from perfec tion ; When such I found I made her my election.
