THIEVING AS A PROFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 July 1881

THIEVING AS A PROFESSION.U Time, money, and intellect are invested, says a writer in Pan, in the profession of thieving, just as in a proper and virtuous trade ; wule ingenuity is often taxed to its uttermost by the emergencies and exi gencies of its adventurous character. The famous gold-dust and bank robberies are examples in point. Remembering these cases, the reader who might be tempted to leave the straight path tor more devious ways will, it is hoped, be checked by the recollection that in both those great affairs the clever operators came to grief. In the gold-dust robbery, one of the thieves, whose "missus" had been ill-treated by his ' pals," confessed. He was in gaol ; they were at large; she was not fairly taken care of by the men who were at hberty. In the bank robbery it will be remembered, one of Ruthlclhld's clerks found an error in the date or number of a bill and inquiry led to detection. The lowest rang of the thieving ladder is probably that of what is known as th...

OUR REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 July 1881

OUR REQUIRE MENTS. A. few short, years ago Gippsland was to the great bull of Victorians a terra incognita. Among mining men it was famous as the locale of the great LongTunnel gold'mine, and to the butchers of Melbourne for the quality of the beef it sent to that market. -Yes, owing to the difficulties the adventurous traveller had to en counter in 'exploring its leafy shades Gippsland-was but little known, and but for the two factors above men tioned I verily believe it would still be aslittle known to the average Victor ian as Victoria is said to be to the general public of Great Britain. But, the last few years has changed all that; an earth hunger seized upon the people, who, finding the richer and more easily reclaimed lands of the west and.north monopolised by the Austins, the Chirnsides, and Staugtons the Moffats and Winters and Costers turned their attention to these primi val torests, and with that indomitable pluck that has ever characterised the Anglo Saxon race determin...

OUR AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY—AN ORGANISATION FOR USEFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 July 1881

OUR AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY -AN. OROGANSATION FOR USEFULNESS. D1 SUPPLE JACK. The district has good reason to be proud of its Agricultural Society, and of its energetic committee and pains taking secretary. The success that has attended the Society's efforts is beyond all expectation, and it is to be hoped that there will be no relaxation on the part of the public to second the committeo in still pushing the Society ahead, and to do all they c:uL, indivi dually, for its advancement. As a member of the Society I will try to do what little I can, and it has occurred to me that I may do a little with my pen; for I have an idea thaitt the Society has not as yet assumed its full scope of usefulness, and that the tins lias arrived for it to launch out in new directions, such as the nature of the district may require. It ii not necessary for me to point out to the committee the difliculties that have to be ovei-come before we can expect to become a flourishing farmiug community. They (the com...

BANQUET AT MORWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 July 1881

BANQUET AT MORWELL. The opening of the new passenger station at Morwell was celebrated on Monday last by a banquet, at which the Hon. Graham Berry and Mr. F. C. Mason, M.L.A., were present. Mr. D. Donaldson presided at the festive board, which was catered for by Mr. Murdock. After the usual loyal toasts had been duly honored, Mr. M'Gauran proposed Mr. Berry's health to which the hon. gentleman replied as follows: Mr. Berry, who was well received, in responding, said that a gathering so numerous as the present would do honor to an older settled district. The reason given for holding the gathering was to celebrate the opening of the new railway station. This might be a very good excuse, but he thought there must be a deeper feeling at the bottom of the movement, and he interpreted it to be a feeling of gratitude towards the iepresentative of the district for the assiduous atten tion which he had given to the wants and requirements of the district. (Cheers.) He (Mr. Berry) thought that...

Graham was voted to the cbair.

THE LITERATURE OF GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 28 July 1881

THE LITERATURE 'OF GIGOVES, Single, as a tray glove, .minus its.mate. The glove is an emblem' of civilination andrefinement, andof effeminanoy aswell, since it restriots the power of. the hand, the most important member: of the human body. 'Pus in gloves catches, no mice.' is indicative of this fact. The hand that grasps the lever of the world must be ungloved; : the hand of the. artist, the mechanic, the gold digger, the--engineer, will hot permit even the"gossamer -tex ture of kid 'to cbme- between 'its grasp; and: its 'duty to the world of fashion, where the glove belongs, is a mere badge of etiquette. The rules which govern the' use of gloves are arbitrary. A 'clergy. man is expected to wear them on the rounds of his duty, but he may not expound the word of God in' them. A gentleman may not offer a gloved ;hand to a lady on the promenade, but he insults her if, in the dance, he offers his hand with the glove off. A lady bien gantee, Bien ehausee e'est bien habillee.
