POLITICS. THE NEXT ELECTION. CANDIDATES FOR GIPPSLAND WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
| POLITICtS. THE NEXT ELECTION. CANDIDATES FOR GIPPSLXND WEST. Several of the leading-residents of the district have recently been considering matters in connection with the next Parliamentary election with a view to inviting " the man of their choice " to contest the constituiency of Gipps land West.: From what we can gather Mr. David Whitley appears to ha-ce been the " favorite," and a few days ago he was interviewed by Councillor Connor and other gentle men whilst on one of his occasional visits to the district. Mr. Whitley replied that he had no ambition in this direction, so far as the prestige or the salary attaching to the positicun was concerned, but he felt that the present conditioi of the country required the services of its most disinterested and patriotic men, and if his interviewers considered that he could in any way assist lh promoting its welfare he would feel it his duty to place himself at their disposal., Nothing further was done at the interview, but on Tuesday ...

'The wounded man is the son of Mr. Cooke the well-known storekeeper at Crossover. MIuch sympathy is expressed for the young man, who is deservedly 1lopular amongst the Crossover diggers, and socialcircles in the district.
LOCAL MAIL SERVICE. DAILY POST TO CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
LOCAL MAIL SERVICE. DAILY POST TO CRIOSSOVEIR. -0- The deputy Postmaster General has advised 'Mr. G. J. Turner, MI.L.A., that in reference to the request pre ferred by him for the establishment of a daily mail service for Crossover; in lieu of the existing tri-weekly service, he has communicated ivith the Post. mistress at Crcssover;asking her if shb can unidertake the extra duties to be imposed onthe office, and what ad ditional remuneration she will require. Up to date, Mr. Smibest says .in his letter to Mr. Turner, the Postmistress has not replied. In these days of retrenchment, and when three-fourths of oir'colonists are unemployed, it is rather a rarity to find any persons who will delay ainswering a letter asking if they will accept an increase of salary. We advise the postmistress to exercise a more promptitude in the matter, other wise she may discover when too late, that some discharged civil servant will be on the 'job.'. We have on more than one occasion, pointed out the ...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. "I must have a few rags, yon know !" etolaimed a gay prospective bride to the Freneh dressmaker. of whom she was ordering her trsussssau. "Oh, my dear, do not say rags," cor rested the shocked modista, " say chiffons; it rounds so much better," and it is chiffon-if not chiffons-that I want to commend to the girl who is fond of society, but whose limited pin money may forbid a brand new party gown this season. Pretty, sheer and very stylish is the fabric known as chiffon, and, although in time sure to degenerate into the tatters from which it derives its name, still, like charity, it covers a multitude of defecte and mckes old things look "amaist as goud as new." Accordion-pleated black chiffon will transform the plainest of silks into a full dress sostume ; while the white and pale tinted will revivify a light hued frock most wondefully. To do this properly, the old silk waist must be neatly covered with the airy material, care being taken to avoid a baggyeffeot....
THERE IS NO TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
THERE IS NO TIME. There is no time such fault to find, No time for envy vain I There is no time for words unkind, Nor giving needless pain, There is no time on coming years To speculate and plot No time for burning, blinding tears O'er things we value not. There is no timoto fret and scold, To fling the taunting jest; No time to be so harsh and oold With those you love the best. There is no time to criticiso The acts of others so; No time your work thus to revise : As written, it must go. There Ia no time on doubt to waste, No time for petty strife I To do the best you can make haste, F7r sorta so shortb, is ui
DO ANIMALS REASON? [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
DO ANIMALS REASON? "It is a mistaken idea that none but humen beings can reason and that dumb auimals have not that power," said Profeeser Palmer. "I am aflly prepared t-. demonstrate that the animals inferior to man have reasoning faculties, and that what is generally termed instinct plays an important part in their doingsand actions. " Let me give a singlo example. I have a friend named Downing, who owns a stud of valuable racohorses. In his stud is a horse known as Speedwest. "A day or so before a race in which the horse is entered, he generally sends him out on the track, mounted by a stable-boy, for a little preparatory work. " This horse will not take kindly to his work, and no amount of persuasion with whip or spur can got him away from a common canter. " I noticed this peculiarity in the animal, and one day suggest.d to Downing that perhaps the horse knew that he was not expected to race, and for that reason could not understand exactly what was required of him. "I prevailed...

COURTESY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
C3URTESY. As peo~le in a crowd find it difficult from their close cottset to avoid hurting each other ani being hurt, so in oar close rela tions with one another, in busines., in society, atd at home, we also find it difficult to avoid the chafing of different dispositions and tempers and views and aims against each other, producing more or less permanent discomfort, pain, and sense of wrong. This difficulty courtesy can best help us to overcome. By its gentle and gracious presence it pre. serves us from too close and too rough coo. tact. It throws a protecting veil over each personality which cannot be easily rent asunder. Who can quarrel with or dispute with or contradict one who is invariably gentle and courteous in his behavior ? The disposition to do so is immediately checked, and a feeling of respect takes its phice. :.t rebukes undue familiarity, sets up a ba:rier against altercation, and soothes irr:table or angry feelings.
AN AIM IN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
AN AIM IN LIFE. Most girls wish to be the centre of a happy home ; but many of them are careless about the means of making themselves fit to be such a centre. They think when love comes it will do everything, and it is true that it will do wonders. But suppose a girl remembers that if she is well she can make her family happier than if she is always ailing. Suppose she remembers how much good housekeeping does to make home attrao tive; that if she is musical her singing will calm the troubled waters, while if she is not her practising will be a burden; that there are some studies which bear directly on life, and some others which will be of infinite use to a mother in training her children-is she not more likely to have a happy home than if her aim had been less definite P But what of the girls who choose this aim, and who never have a home P Their lot is hard, but they may add happiness to some home not their own. If they are not obliged to support themselves, they can proS'ably cr...
ODDITIES OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
ODDITIE.S OF ETIQUETTE. In Swedon if you address the poorest person on the street you must lift your hat. The same courtesy is insisted upon if you pass a lady on the stairway. To enter a reading-room or a bank with one's hat on is regarded as a bad breach of manners. To place your hand on the arm of a lady is a grave and objectionable familiarity. Never touch the person ; it is sacred, is one of their proverbs. In Holland a lady is expected to retire precipitately if she should enter a store or a restaurant where men are congregated. She waits until they have transacted their business and departed. Ladies seldom rise in Spain to receive a male visitor, and they, rarely accompany him to the door. For a Spaniard to give a lady-even his wife-his arm when out walking is looked upon as a decided violation of propriety. In Persia, among the aristocracy, a visitor sends notice an hour or two before calling, and gives a day's notice if the visit is one of great importance. He is met by ser...
THE HOME CIRCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
THE- HOME CIRCLE. Bra SALAD.-This is a very beautiful winter salad. Boil half a dozen beets slowly until tender; throw into cold water; when cold remove the skins; cut in two and slice neatly each half; place them in the centre of a salad bowl; slice three boiled potatoes and lay them about the beets. Have ready four hard boiled eggs, mince white and yolks separately, and arrange the former around the salad in little heaps alternately with tufts of water cress; sprinkle the yolks on the beet in the very centre, leaving a border of the bright red beet to be seen. Thomas J. Murray, caterer of the White House restaurant in Washington, manages to raise winter salads in the following in genious manner:-Saw a flour barrel in two after heading up to make two tubs; put in rope haadles by inserting rope through holes bored in each side opposite each other; bore holes from one to two inches in diameter in circles around the tub; cover the bottom with stable sweep ings, over this add loam to c...
A HAPPY ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
A HAPPY ISLAND, Woman's greatest paradise Is in the in terior of Sumatra. The women there own all the wealth, and it is the constant aim of men to enrich their wives. They have a law by which a man's property cannot be inherited by his children, but must go to his parents, while that belonging to his wife descends to the off-spring ; and, of course, they got round that law by putting all their wealth into the hands of the women. Each man has but one wife, and each wife one husband. They are Mohammodans, although they are monogamous both in theory and fact. A man may divorce his wife if he chooses, but he must allow her to retain the property in her possession. Divorces are not frequent-perhaps for the reason that a man does not live in the same house with his wife. He has his home apart, and visits her only in the evening, like a lover calling on, his mistress. When the children grow up, the boys are taken away from their mother's home as soon as they are old enough, but the girls s...

HE BARKED TOO SOON. A boy was go;ng up Third street with a rope over his shoulder and a dog at the far end of it, when a pedestrian halted him and enquired d' Boy, do you know you're choking that dog P" "Yes, air," was the prompt reply, " ut he's hanging back on me." "He is evidently afraid of you." " Yes, sir." " Doesn't want to go home with yon P" "No, sir. He knows he'll git an awful wollopin' when 1 git iim there." " It's your dog, is it ?" "Of course; owned him over two years. Got away two or three days ago and run off, but I found him on Jones street. Come along here or I'll pull yer head off !" " You seem to be a very heartless boy," observed the pedestrian as he stooped down to give the dog a pat. "'Taint me, but dad." " What's your father got against a little innocent dog like this P" " House got afire the other night and be barked and woke everybody up too soon.'. "How too soon P" "Too soon fur it to burn up so we could, git .500 insurance on the furniture. Dad's got it in...
THE BEGINNINGS OF CHICKEN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 18 May 1894
THE BEGINNINGS OF CHICKEN LIFE. 'A lady writes :-Always take out the little chicks from under the hens as soon as they are dry, and even sometimes before they are quite dry. While the hen is, hatching, tee little things are very liable to be crushed. Their little peep is so faint that the hen does not know she is crushing therm. I keep an old piece of soft flannet in a basket, in which I put them, and cover them well with it. Some. times the hens are two days hatching, and as the chicks want to eat before this time, I made, for greater conveniene, a frame and covered it with wire gauze netting. This I set in front of an open wood fire. The frame keeps the chicks from running into the fire or under one's feet, and at the same time they have the full benefit of the fire, take a little exercise, and pick up some bread crumbs. By the time the hen is ready to take charge of them, they are quite strong and not easily crushed. The only time 1 lose any chickens is when I neglect to take the...
