SQUAW-MEN IN ALASKA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

SQUAW-MEN IN ALASKA. At Lake Leharge we met an English man who was taking his wife and three chiIdren for a trip to Five Finger fRapids. Ills wife was a scquaw and her face was painted black as we!re also those of the children. I never di:i find out the real reason these squaw.s have for paint ing their faces black. Some say it is because they think it makes them more beautiful, and still others claim that it is a preventive from mosquitoes. W'e be came quite friendly with this Engllish man. Ite was taking his family to visit some of his wife's people. IHe had just received news from England that the death of three persons heod made him heir to a noble title and quite an in heritance, but to enjoy its posse:tsions, etc.. he would have to return to Eng land.

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

LARDNER. The district of Lardner is looking ex tremely well. The crops, which suffered a little from the late hailstorms, have recovered, and the grass land is looking splendid and cattle much improved in condition. The butter factory opened at South Warragul last week, but owing to so many of the farmers having purchased separators, there will he a considerable decrease in the quantity of milk to be put through at the creamery this season. The general aspect of the district has greatly inproved since the fires, the country being much opened out and scenery improved. Twelve years ago only one house could be seen on the Strezlecki ranges from Hamilton's road; now, over twenty can be counted, and the view of the hills is worth more than a passing glance. The concert arranged by Mr. Minahan, the Lardner State-school master, which was held in tihe Mechanics' Institute with a view of getting up a picnic for the school children on the Prince of Wales' Birthday, with the proceeds was a gre...

BATES AND HIS BICYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 11 October 1898

BATES AND HIS BICYCLE. Mr James Bowden, the well - known London publisher, has issued a new book of racy humor, entitled "Bates and his Bicycle," by Fred Wishaw, a rising young writer, who has already turned out good work, and gives pro- mise of producing much better. Much better known authors have written far less humorous sketches than the open- ing one, from which we quote the fol- lowing:— I held the bicycle while Bates mounted, which he did very clumsily, nearly sending me into the pavement head over heels. He went too far over   the saddle, and seated himself upon the extreme northern edge of the leather, with his shoulders humped up to his ears and his hands nervously grasping the bar in front. He must have been exceedingly uncomfortable, and he cer- tainly looked it. "Don't let her go, for goodness sake, old chap," said Bates nervously, as I staggered along the road with the whole weight of Bates and his bicycle (at an angle of forty-five) resting against me.

MR. C. SARGEANT M.L.C. II;SIGNS HIS SEAT. 'The aunnouncement that the estate of Mr. C. Sargeant had been compul sorily sequestrated, calme upon the electors in this part of the Province as a great surprise, andil when it was known that the cause o1 f the trouble was a debt for which lie was only "jointly" liable, the greatest sym pathy was felt and expressed for him. The seCquestration of the estate was effected by the Connmercial Bank of Australia, Ltd., and the bank's petition was based upon a judgement for £-.3,844, being the balance due to the bank as holder of a joint and several promissory note for £4,985 10s, dated July 21, 1891. and made by Mr. Sargeant and others in favor of the bank. )During the time that MIr.

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898

SPORTING. The progralmne issued in connecti6n with the sports in aid of the Warragul Band is a very good one, and should suit all tastes. Providing weather conditions are favorable, there should be a large attendlance rnd a substantial addition to the funds of the ba:nd. The object is a mIost ilaudable one, and deserving of the -hearty support of the residents of the district. Although late in starting, our cricketers intend making up for lost time, and there is every prospect of a successful season. The Yarragon Club has already a very large memlubership, and also a very sub stantial amount of cash in hand; the Longwarry, .Drouin, and Jindivick clubs have all re-formed; and Warragul will doubtless have a club capable of making a bold bid for the local premiership. The last football match of the season took place on Wednesday last, when a combined team of the Warragul district mnet a team from Traralgon on the 'Var ragul Show Ground. The game resulted in a win for the home team. Sco...

WARRAGUL RACE CLUB. IMPROVEMENTS TO THE COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898

WARRAGUL RACE CLUB. IM1'ROVEMIENTS 'T'( THE COURSE. Judging by the manner it which the Warragul Race Club is progressing. it bids fair to become the leading institution of its kind in fGippslahnd. Although only four years established, the club has achieved a great deal both in providing sport and in improving its course. Two meetings a year have been held-one on Boxing Day and the other at Easter--the financial results of which have almost in variably been very satisfactory, and we understand that the advisability of hold ing more meetings is favorably enter tained by many of the members. Last season the club mltade a plrofit of about £40, and the commnuittee. recognising the utmost importance of having a good racing track, has b?pt-e spending a eon siderable amount of money ill draining and otherwise improving the course. which will eventually be one of the best out of Melbourne.

THE QUEEN'S FAVORITE HYMNS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898

THE QUEEN'S FAVORITE HYMNS Queen Victoria, throughout her long life and the constant attendance on Div vine service, by which she has set such a shining example to her subjects, has shown a singularly Catholic taste in hymns. Old Lutheran paraphrases and choracles, Scottish psalms, the hymns of Wesley and Toplady and Watts, Lytc and Newman, all have appealed to hIer Majesty's heart and expressed her feel ings of devotion and praise, hope for the future, and association with the past. In her griefs she has evidently sought the sympathy of the Man of Sorrows, and in her appreciation of noble deeds she has realised that the bravest warriors are Soldiers of the- Cross: while in the re ir.emhrance of those she has loved antl lost she has ever clung firmly to the hopel of their b!essed resurrection to everlast ing life., atd shown it by her choice of the hymns to be sung over their last resting-place. For many years after the Queen had made her Highland home at Balmoral with her family, s...
