"OLD DYSON." (A Fancy Sketch.) [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
"OLD DYSON." (A Fancy Sketch.) We met him in a shanty, on the roadsilde In the bush, And could see with half an eye that he was not one of the push, Who were hanging round the little den - a crowd of human wrecks. Intent upon one thing in life-the "blueing" of their cheques. hIis face was bronzed and furrowed, and his clothes "had seen their day;" His hair and beard unkempt and on the whiter side of grey: Al! collarless, his red cravat was something to admire, And the shanty-keeper said he'd tramped that day from "Nevertire." The crowd were deep in revelry; they drank and cursed and swore; But the weather-beaten stranger kept the gloom behind the door. We glanced across his shoulder as he read (we thought) some rhymes From a dirty, crumpled copy of the Melbourne "'Weekly Times," We imagined he was reading, perhaps, the story of a life, That had touched his very heart-strings and had wounded like a knife: We invited him to "Jo!n us," so he put the paper by, And drank our health with ...
THE BEEKEEPER. SPRING MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
THE BEEKEEPER. SPRING MANAGEMENT. Success or failure in bee-keeping (writes the "Journal of Hlorticulture") depends greatly on the spring manage ment, and as no two seasons are exactly alike, bee-keepers must be governed by the strength of their stock, the state of the weather, and when honey is likely to be ob:ained in abundance. before deciding on what is necessary to be done in the ap'ary. It is. therefore, impossible to lay down any hard and fast rule, as it would prubably only end in failure. If we make a comparison between the present season and a year ago, it will be at once appar ent that different treatment is necessary. At the present time the majority of our stocks are in good condition-indeed, we do not remember them being in a more forward state at this early date; whereas a year ago they were quite the opposite. .They then required careful management before they were of the desired strength to store a surplus. Colonies that are headed by young fer tile queens, and whic...

A. N. A. THE LIFE OF GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
A. N. A. THE LIFE OF GLADSTONE. At the fortnightly meeting of thie local branch of the A.N.A. held at the Shire Hall last week, the Rev. C. Hay Hunter, gave a very interesting address on the life of Gladstone. There was a very fair attendance, and 'Mr. A. C. Lewis (Presi-o dent of the l:ralich) occupied the chair; In his opening relrrarks the rev. gentleman said that in the course of an evening address he could only touch on a few of the salient points, in the life of the illur. trious statesman, who had but recently passed away. Gladstone was of Scotch descent but was born in Liverpool on the 29th December, 1809, his father being a Scotch merchlnnt who had removed his business to Liverpool. He received his education-at Eton, under the celebrated Dr. Keats, who was noted for his flogging propensities. There were imany stories in connection with the school days of 3r. Gladstone. It w:a at custom with the the Eton boys at the time of the Annual Fair to get hIl fa munumber of pigs and ...
WARDEN'S COURT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
WARDEN'S COURT. At the Warden's Court on Friday, before Mr. Cresswell, the hearing of the adjourned case of Pearson v. the Neerimn Propty. G. M. Co. was resumed. The grounds of the action were that the defendant company had caused tailings and sludge to lodge on plain tiffs claim and thereby prevented hint from avorkiug it, and he claimed £100 damages. At the previous hearing, which occupied two days, a con siderable amount of evidence was given, much of it being of a very con tradictorv nature. Plaintiff's wit nesses estimated the damage done at various amounts, ranging from £20 to £100, whereas the evidence for the defence was to the effect that the tailings could be removed for 80s or 35s. On Friday some further evidence of a similar character was given. Mr. Backhouse, who appeared for the defendant company, argued that plaintiff was not in legal possession on 13th July, not having re-pegged out his claim in accordance with the by-laws. The Warden, however, ruled that plaintiff w...

WARRAGUL, OCTOBER, 18, 1898. SMiner," Shady Creek, writes :--" It is owing to the action of the miners in this l]cality that prevented me from forwarding my second letter, promising some startling .facts; but they will come out in due time, as the petition I have signed asks for what is much needed in the matter of our auriferous lands."

MORE FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
M ORE FAITH. I hIear men everywhere praying for more faith: but when I listen to themn carefully and get at the real heart of their prayers, very often It is not more faith at all that :hey arse wanting, but a change? from faith to sight. "\'hat shall I do with sorrow that God has sent me'.' "Take it up and bear it. and get strength and blessing out of it." ".Ah, if I only k:new what blessing there is in it, if I saw how it would help me, then 1 could bear it. What shall I do with this hard, hateful duty which Christ has laid right in my way?"' "Do it, and grow by doing it." "Ah, yes, if I could only see that it would make mre grow." In both of these cases you do not see that what you are begging for is not more faith, although you think it is. but sight. You want to seet for yourself the' bless ing in the sorrow, the strength in the hard and hateful task. Faith says not, "I see that it is good for me. and so God must have seen it," but, "God sent it, and so it must be good for me."...

ENIGMA.

Or who would scrub, or make my bed. On errands go, my table spread? And where would all my money be Itf spendthrifts made a rush at me? I hate social equality, It never will with me agree. My second I now introduce to you: But first a castle I take you to view. You see it now, on that summit there- How lovely it looks from.the valley fair. How sunny, how bright it all appears; And nothing has clouded that spot for years. Church bells are dancing most gladly away, For the son of the earl will be married to-day, Out afar from the East he has brought htas bride; And now they are standing side by side, And he utters his vows: "Whatever betide. * I take thee for life. With this ring I wed." No ring on her side, but her heart ...
NOTES FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
NOTES FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. A seaweed oe the South Paciflec often grows to be 30 or 40 inchs in diameter, and 1500 to 2000 feet in length. It has no root in the proper sense, the nourish ment being absorbed from the water. The surface of the sea is estimated at 150,000,000 square miles, taking the whole surface of the globeat 197,000,000 and its greatest depth supposedly equals the height of the highest moun tain, or four miles. The electric light i:; now ill use in more than 100 towns and boroughs in England. In about half of these it has been adopted by the municipal authori tit.s. In the remainder it is worked by companies. The Brazil nut contains from 15 to 24 seeds, which all germinate at one time. Tihe nmost vigorous olte gets first through a small hole at the top to the open air, and thereupon it strangles and feeds upon the rest.

AN ENGLISH CONJURER'S EXPERIENCE. AMONG THE FAKIRS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
AN ENGLISH CONJURER'S EXPER4ENCE. AMONG THE FAKIRS. W?hen I first went to Bombay,. says Carl Hertz. the eminent English con jurer, to an Eastern interviewer, I had all the lore of the white magicians at my fingers' ends, but I found that that was not by any means enough to enable me to graduate in the great university of the Eastern world. Daily I had fakirs gathered from far and wide to give me exhibitions. They showed ordinary tricks, and when the performance was over I told them, through the interpreter, that I was very much displeased with the childish things they had shown me, and intended to strike them with lightning. They said they had no fear. They were in the business themselves, and I could rnot frighten them. I made some passes, and they stood before me boldly till I made a furious pass and shouted, and their clothing burst into flames. Then they fled in terror, casting off their light robes. and my reputation as a wonder worker was established in India. big business res...
A COMING QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
A COMING QUEEN. Many forecasts have been made of the fate of little Alfonso ?XIII., the boy King of Spain, after the close of the war. But whatever may become of his boyish ma jesty, the future of his elder sister, the young Princess of Asturias, seems welt assured. Next year she is to be betrothed to Prince Albert of Belgium, who Will ulti mately become King of the Belgians. It is a little singular that this courtly Prince, who manifests such interest and sympathy for Americans, is almost on the eve of marriage to the former young Queen of the country we are at war with. As Queen Mercedes, this pretty little senorita, only five years of age, wore the Spanish crown for six months, during the winter of 1SS5-1SS6, following her father's death. After the birth of her brother, Alfonso, she returned to the nursery as "Princess of the Asturias.'" Her marriage to Prince Albert might bring about a remarkable fortune for her. She is now eighteen years of age. Circumstances may at any time ma...
DISTRICT NEWS. BULN BULN EAST. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS). SBULN BULN EAST. Crops are making rapid headway; 1879 will be a record year for oats and hay, and if the price holds up farmers will mnake up the leeway they lost during the drought. Meanwhile dairymen are doing a lot of work for very little money, the price of butter having reached a low level, with a corresponding decline in the price of milkers. I am informed that M'r. Briggs, who goes in for the cultivation of small fruits, has a large area (several acres) under strawberries this year, and will commnence picking shortly. Boys from the Gordon Institute are employed for this purpose. Mr. Ferris, jun., while riding a mare on the Sale road, met with a nasty accident last week. The animal stmnbled over a stump, and the rider fell heavily, getting a severe shaking. The dramatic entertainment given by the young people here at Upper Bloom field was a great success. The proceeds go to the Children's Hospital.
CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
CROSSOVER. Changing, ever changing, would seem to be the atmospheric colnditions of this district, at one time the thermometer registering as high as 85 deg. in the shade and a at another as low as 45 (ldeg. I have been requested to ask that the editor of the Gazctle would allow to ----.trpear in his widely-read paper a contra diction to a paragraph which appeared in the lVest Gippslatld lExprecss of the 6th inst. relative to the agitation for an inquiry in the method adopted in re iioving the mining objections from the auriferous lands in this district. It is somewhat surprising that people will rush into print and make assertions about matters they don't understand, leading the public astray thereby. As regards the agitation "ending in a fizzle," it is no such thing. A petition is now ready, and is being signed to be presented to Parlia ment, asldng for a committee to inquire into the whole matter. The cause of the delay is chiefly owing to and pending the decision of the next Gip...

CHILDERS. On Saturday evening a meeting was held in the Mechanics' Institute to re-form the Childers Cricket Club, and from six teen to eighteen joined the club. The following office-bearers were elected for the coming season: captain, 1Mr. F. Gray; secretary, Mr. C. M~. Bromfield. It was decided to present trophies or medals to the West bowler, bat, and fielder. On Satn-day afternoon, sixteen young fellows turned up at the Childers Recrea tion Ground, to clear of some trees which were blown down in the late gales. Three trees were hurled full length across the ground, narrowly missing the cricket pitch. During tie gale on Saturday week, two sheets of iron were torn off the Childers .Mechanics, otherwise no serious damage was done. The rainfall for this month is 2"19in., the fall for September being 6"71in..
