A New Giant. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
A New Giant. A new giant has been discovered in Arabia by a German professor travelling in that country. He was one of the residents of the oasis Siwah Amons, and was known to his companions as "the tall palm of the desert." Theprofessor recognised his value, and at once began negotia. tions with a view of bringing him to Europe for exhibition purposes. The bargain was a hard one to drive, but it was finally concluded, and the monster will probably boe on exhibition before long. What makes this giant doubly interest ing is the fact that he is but a beardless youth, xteen years ot aego, andis etill growing at a rapid rat. How big howill be whenheattains his growth is only a matter of conjecture, but at present he stands fully 7ft. high. He is in perfect health, and has an enormous appetite. His hand is 13in. long and proportionately broad and large, and his feet are on the same scale.-" Tit-Bits."
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Another story in our contemporary has a special interest for antiquaries :-A few years ago the British Association met in Dublin, and made an excursion to the Islesof Aran, where some interesting arch:eological remains are to be seen. Between two distinguished arch:eologista-Sir William Wilde and Dr. Donovan.-a hot dispute arose as to theage of a little rough stone building. One attributed it to the sixth century; the other gave it a later date.' An old man, one of theislanders, was standing by listening, the disputants giving learned reasons for their opinion. " Faix," said he at length, " as far as that little bildin' is conaarned, they are both wrong. It was built dust two years ago by Tim Doolan for his ass.
HORACE GREELEY. HOW HE ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
HORACE CREELEY. 1 HOW-HE ROSE. One "hot day in August, 1831, an ungainly journeyman printer from Erie, Pa., was among" the "arrivals' in New York City. It was .Horace Greeley, born twenty years before, on a farm in Amherst, N.H. From childhood an insatiable reader, at ten he had become the prodigy of his native town. His atump grubbing on a farm in Vermont, whether poverty droi'e his father's family, his ser vice as printer's devil there, and later as job and newspaper printer at Erie, paid little. The young man reached the metropolis with only ten dollars in his pocket, while the rest of his earthly goods formed a bundle which he. swung in his hand. After long and vain searcn for work he at last secured a situation o hard that no other printer would take it.'" In it bh wrought twelve or fourteen hours a day at a rate never exceeding six dollars a week. After various vicissitudes in job-printing and desultory editorial work, where he evinced genius and zeal but so spa. cial aptitude...
Bee Stings and Inoculation. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Bee Stings and Inoculation. It is extremely rare that stings from bees have ever proved fatal; still, there have been a few instances where such has been the case, ana death from a single sting has been the result This may have happened not so much from the sting itself, as from the after consequences and fright that ensued, on the person whose system at the time of attack might have been such no to be easily affected. A good many people when they are first stung with bees are liablet? swell, get their faces disfigured as well as the pain caused; but in time the system seems to get inoculated with the sting poison (formio acid), that the swelling or pain caused formerly has now little or no effect. As one gets older In the bee business, stings seem to get less, with little or no pain. I believe I get fewer of thesn now with a large apiary than when I owned a couple of hives. Iseldom ever don a bee veils but would advise all those liable to swell or suffer any after-effects from stin...

THE HORTICULT?URIST. The Orchard and Fruit Garden. The manuring and mnarking of the ground between strawberries, currants, gooseberries and other small fruits should be taken in hand as early in the season as possible, and all pruning and planting should be completed during the winter months and during the short period in which the bushcs are dormant.

Ashes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Ashes. -4--- For numerous purposes, and in one form or another, gricnlturiste are in the habit of using considerable eunntities of ashes; therefore it is manifestly desirable they should be aware of those properties which determine their true value, and in what respects various kinds differ, especially as farmers appear to entertain somewhat vague ideas concerning the attributes rend erin them suitable for diverso objects, such distinctions being marked and important, although this fact may very probably be un known to not a few persons, while certainly many fail to justly appreciate it, not realising or understanding that those admirably adapted to one purpose are by no means well fitted for others. This should become more evident if we divide our subject into two sections and consider them accordingly-that is to say, the refuse obtained upon burning coal, in the first place; and secondly, the residue resulting from the combustion of wood and other vegetable matters.

:tax O'Rlell's Yarn. it is remarkable what stirring adren tures visitors meet with in this country 'adventures which are kent profoundly * secret until the heroes of them ged away sounewhere else. Take the following for illustration: Max O'Rel rells many stories about other people. Here is one that a fortoighit ago in Montreal he told about himself. When lec taring in an Aatralian bush town he waxed eloquent on thea-thletic feats of liritons.After Seach assertion came a deep toned " It's . lie," from a drunken auditor. The interruptions became unbearable. "Give me a stop of five msinutes;" said Max to his sudiencee. Off went his coat, down jnmped the lectrmer, and in a moment he had collared the ioter tnpter and bundled him out. "If Ihad known you meant to do that," said the manager, " I'd have charged double prices." and he could easily have got them. .Now where did. this happen? We may. have been deceived by Max's ap pearance, admittedly . robust, yet twe would honestly like to se...
A Flying Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
A Flying Machine, Professor Fitzgerald, of Trinity College, Dnblin, recently made some experiments in the College l'arkwith a flyinc.mechine, the invention of a German named Lilienthal. The appliance was made of thin canvas on a light frame shaped in the form af a sea-gull. The trial was not very successful, as the apparatus never rose more than two feet from the ground, and its flights were very short. It was stated that this was due to the nature of the ground, and the trials are to be repeated under more favorable conditions, Suppose the inventor tried that cliff on the Sydney side, which was the scene of a ilying-machine disaster a few months ago.
An Alleged Cancer Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
An Alleged Cancer Care. Certain details published respecting the discovery by a Bernardme monk in Leioester shire of a reported " cancer cure" recall the gropinga of medical intelligence in the Dark Ages. It is not a little interesting to see this kind-hearted man with no prospect of personal gain, but, alas, with as little knowledge of the characters of cancer, using his herbal decoctions with honest zeal in efforts to soothe his suffer ing neighbours. The evident intention is wholly commendable. Would that we coual say as much ior its effects. Brother Philip on one occasion last June bruised his band. A wound which followed the acci dent healed slowly, but it did heal at last under the application of certain herbs which he considered " would together heal any wound.' He believed that his wound was a cancer, and the thought struck him that perhaps he had found a cure for this disease. " O sancta simpliitas !" Could anything be more mystio or more misty than the relation here sugges...

THE LADIES' OOL.UMN The Old Path. The same old path! Long years have flown Stine last I trod itse way; I scarcely thought-such change I've known To find its marks to day. But still its lovely course I trace, Unchanged, by fence and rill, Through meadow, wood, and briery place, And o'er the verdant hill. And in the valley, far ahead, The evening shadows hbold The house to which my footateps led In twilight hours of old. Who treads the path ?-who dwells there now? I neither know nor care; I only know no tender brow And voice await me there. And that to walk that quiet trail Would give me such deep pain As all my soul could not avail To drie from me again. Alas! I know not where thoen art, What time has done with thee 'Tis but the ghost of my younr heart WhIch bahunnta this place and me. Buot I would give my" lfo's beat pride, Could this old path once more But lead me, dearest, to thy side, Audto the love of yore t Joam B. Jsgrsrr. The illustrations show two pretty dresses for girls.

A Sailor's Bride. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
A Sailor's Bride. A bluejakets who has recently married gives the following description of Iis bride and her apparel, which we think will put some of the sooiety papers to the blush: " My wife is just as handsome a craft as ever left millinery dry-dock, is clipper-built, and with a figure-bead not often seen on emall oraft. Her length of keel is 5 feet 8 inches, and displaces 27 cubic feet of air; of light draught, which adds to her speed in the ball-room; full in the waist, spare trim. At the time we were spliced she was newly rigged fore and aft with standing rigging of lace and flowers ; mainsail part silk, with fore staysail of Valen olennes. Her framo was of the best steel covered with ailk, with whale bone stanchions. This rigging is intended for fair weather cruising. She has also a set of storm sails for rough weather, and is rig ging out a small set of canvas for light squalls, which are liable to occur in this lati. tude sooner or later. I am told in running down the stree...
Useful Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 7 June 1895
Useful Hints. Oranges and lemons will keep well if hung in a wire net m a cool and airy place. A drop of oil and a feather will do away with the creaking in a door or creaking chair. When milk is used in tumblers, wash them first in cold water, afterwards rinse in hot water. A little flour dredged over a cake before icing it will keep the icing from spreading and run ning off. Bread and cake bowls, or any dishes in which flourand eggs have beenused, are more easily cleaned if placed in cold water after using. Thin people who desire to gain flesh should take plenty of farinaceous food-cocoa, rice, sugar, potatoes, milk, stoot, port wine, butter and brown bread. Good fruit should be taken, and when fasting, if possible. Avoid eating between meals. Take meals regularly, eat slowly, and thoroughly masticate all food. Stimulating cordial gives general plumpness. No one should fear using perfumes, the stimulating and refreshing properties of which cannot be over-estimated. They are health...
