THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. The introduction of the baeque makes it easy to freshen up an old silk dress that has been laid aside. We saw such aone-a black silk, which was trimmed with a grass-green velvet, so that it looked every bit as good as new. The sleeves, bsequ and lapels were of the velvet, finished with a row of narrow jet gimp. Throe bias bands of the velvet were on the skirt, and the effeot was very stylish and becoming. It is not safe to make a black silk over with another shade of black, either in satin or velvet. There is no contrast, and the effect is not pleasing. Among the materials for winter dresses there is a sail sloth which is very nobby. It is so wide that two breadths make a skirt. There are also the horse blanket goods, a light thick woollen fabric with soft surface, and a large brcezy patterr. There are just a few women who can we r these large designs, but on them they a eo very fetching. A pink horse-blanket gown with a black horseshoe, through which a four-leav...

Dii you find it in the e pages of that book ?" S "Yes; I have been reading about a e young woman who went out as a mis e sionary, and accomplished much good.

It would require a groat deal t more courage than I have." , Did the heroine of your story leave her home and friends to go on her mis e sion. If so, she was brave indeed." d " Well, not exactly," said Ethel, a t little reluctantly. " You see she was an is orphan, and her uncle-who was a . clergyman-and his w...

SACCHARINE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
SAccuABnur ,-Saccharine is a white crystalline powder, very like finely. powdered sugar, which possesses three hundred times the sweetening power of cone-sugar. It is not a food like eugar. but a simple sweetening condiment, which passes through the human system un changed, and without, as far as has yet been ascertained, producing any sensations except that of sweetness to the palate, and without evil consequences of any descrip tion, even when given in daily doses which are equivalent in sweetening power to three pounds of cane-sugar. At present it is somewhat expensive; but it wiill no doubt soon become cheap and plentiful if a large demand arises for it. The scientific name .f this curious substance is benzoylaul phonimide; and, in addition to its fldvour ing quailities, antiseptic properties are claimed for it, so that it has no chemical affinities to the sugars or carbohydrates. and cannot be broken up by the organisms which produce fermentation. It may also become a valuable ...
LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
LABOUR. Labor does not make the whole of life, and there are some things the value and beauty of which would be diminished and even spoilel by the very presence of dif ficulty. All friendship and love are of this character. Their spontanity is their chief element, without which they are well-nigh worthless if they are not delightful they are nothing. The mother who regards her labors for her childran as a toilsome burden knows but little of true maternal sffection. The man who flnds his relations with his friend diffloult and onerous has never tasted the sweets of true friendship. Kind and benevolent actions would lose all their grace and charm if they were seen to be painful and difficult tasks. The physical functions are no longer perfect when they can be carried on only with difficulty. The air, the water, the sunshine, the green fields, the high hills, all give the impression of power with repose. Were they to show strain and struggle, their beauty and their charm would be gne.<...

GRAVE ' AND GAY. Hotel prcprietor-" We don't allow any gam.s of chance here." Gambler-" This isn't a game of chance. My friend here has no chance." "Ah, yes," sighed a Chicago lady, "John has been a good husband to me !" "I thought you separated years ago?" "We did; but he is always so prompt with the alimony." Little Paul is greedy, and his mother scolds him. "Don't you see how naughty it is to be greedy P Now say, 'lt is very wrong to be greedy.' . " Oh, yes, mamma. 'It is very wrong to be greedy '-but then it is so nice !" After a consultation, a lawyer and his client emerged from the office of the former. "Do you always look your office when you go out P" asked the client. "Yes, of course," answered the lawyer. "I don't want any rascal to get into my office before I return."

IRISH HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
IRISH HUMOUR. Pat is able to speak for himself under all circumstances. A lawyer once said to a witness: ' You're a nice fellow, aren't you P" "I am, sir, was the reply, "and if I was not on my oath I'd say the same of you." A judge who was a very old and shrunten lil le man, was trying a ease, when another very old man, a peasant scarcely able to walk, came into court to give evidence. Instead of going to the witnes, box, he went toward the passage leading to the bench. One of the counsel called out to him .Come back, sir; where are you going ? Do you think you are a judge P " Indeed, sir," said the old man, I oking up to the judge, " I believe I'm fit for little else." A barrister named Bushe, was making a speech for the defence, when an ass began to bray loudly outside the court. " WYait a moment," said the other counsel; " one at a time, Mr. Buahe, if you please." The barrister waited for a chance to retort, and it came presently. When 0 Grady was charging the jury, the ass agai...
FARM AND GARDEN. QUALITY IN STRAWBERRY BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
FARM AND GARDEN. QUALITY IN STLAWBIRRY BEDS. In planting a strawberry, large or small, it is well to give careful consideration to the fact that an amount of work neces sary to its care will be just as great on poor soil as on rich; just as great, or even greater, if the plants set out are inferior as though of the best stock. But the yield will be widely different under these vary ing conditions, hence it is the poorest kind of policy to plant on poor soil, or to use inferior plants. There are two kinds of plants that are extensively used, which are really unfit to be placed in a straw barry bed. There is no doubt that the use of these annually reduces the crop con siderably. When an old bed has outlived its use fulness there are thousands of apparently good plants to be ploughed under. Some persons cannot bear to see these go to waste. So they either use them for start ing new beds, offar them for sale, or give them to their neighbours and friends. Whoever tries to save something ...
A MATTER OF HABIT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
A MATTER OF HABIT, It will surprise many persons to learn that being pleasant is merely a matter of habit. It must be cultivated like every other good habit. It has its root in an unselfish desire for the happiness of others, not excluding one's own family. It will require a great effort at first to check the hasty word, to forego the profitless argument, to withhold the impertinent criticism, to spoak the truth in love, but it is an effort that is well repaid by the results. Rudeness is never justifiable. It is sometimes necessary to reprove, to warn, to remonstrate, even to speak gravely and plainly of faults that should be corre3ted; but all this can be done without encroaching in any way upon the courtesy that is due from one human being to another. Well-bred persons are never rude; the chivalrous man, the refined woman hesi tate to hurt the feelings of any one with whom they are brought in o,ntact. They treat them with the respect which they exact for themselves. There is no su...
SHARPENING A CAST-IRON PLOUGH POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 22 May 1894
SHAR.PENING A CAST-IRON PLOUGH POINT. Many farmers are not aware that when a cast-iron plough has become very dull, or even thrown aside as worthless, its use fulness can be prolonged, for the ploughing of one or two more acres in common soil. Remove the point from the plough, and if there is no stone as large as a man's head, drive an iron wedge partly into a log, or poet, or even use an axe, or other piece of iron, the object being to obtain a solid surface to strike against. Take the point, bottom up, in the left hand, resting it upon the stone, or iron near the point, then with a hammer strike a quick, angling, downward blow, just chipping off the point. These blows will not break the iron at right angles, but chip it off, some times in pieces the size of a shilling. Extend this chipping process all along the cutting surface underneath the mould board. Practise on an old point, as it requires considerable skill to properly strike even suoh an inanimate thing as a plough point. C...

The Strange Adventure of Dorothy Gerard. By the Author of "Mrs. Carew's Secret." CHAPTER I. The story that I have to te'l you is so strange, that for some time I have hesitated tr witrits But my husband tells me that it cannot fail to b: of interest because of its improbability, and so I have decided to eae, as well as I am able, the mysterious sdrenture that befell me a ftw years ago When papa died, and left me without a pennt piece in the world, Auat Salinea, my sle asuriving relative, at once said that I nest earn my living as a governess. She told me that she had long foreseen the day when I should be compe??ed to work for my brea, and that if pco: papa had been more csredi of my interets, I should have had a large fortune, instead ef becoming a miserable pauper.
