WHEN HE BROUGHT THE BLACK SILK. The One Thing In Life For Which Mrs. Young Longed Came Too Late. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
WHEN HE BROUGHT THE BLACK SILK. The One Thing In Life For Which lIrs. Youun Longedt Cumo Too Late. It was no very exacting ambition that Robert Young's mother had cherished all her life. She lived very quietly on the western prairie farm to which she and her husband had- gone together when they were both young. She did not expect toberich or even thinkabout it. She was content with the homely round of her daily life. Sometimes her husband used to say that if they had only happened togo heroe or there, where some, of the friends of his youth had found copper or silver, or struck oil, they also might have been worth millions, but the wife always answered: "It wa'n't to be, John:it wa'n't to be. And we've done pretty well, as things go, but I should 'a' like one good black silk dress." This was the only wish that Robert Young had ever heard his mother ex press. and he used tosay tohimselfwhen he was a boy: "Bless the dear mother! She shall have it the very first money I earn." - Robert...
A BIG REEF. AT NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
A BIG REEF. AT NEERIM SOUTH. -0 FROM 40Fr. TO 60s-r, WIDE. -o It has been known for a long time past that a big reef had been dis covered at Neerim South, and that on the surface it had widened out to extraordinary proportions. For some reason or other, however, it has never been properly prospected,- and had been allowed to remain almost un touched up to within the past few weeks. It was first of all found on what is.knoivn as Nunan's property, and has since been traced through Stephens' and Lacey's land. Some people think it is a continuation of the reef running from the old Bee hive mine. At Stephens' it is 4Oft wide on the surface, and at Lacey's it expandsout to (Oft. This abnormal width is probably the result of a " blow," and doubtless it will narrow greatly as it is followed down. The stone contains gold, but, up to the present, investigations go to show that the walls are not very well defined. Better indications in this direction, however, may be found at a lower depth.

There is a story going the rounds of the newspapers to the effect that during Ihe siege of Petersburg General Leo turned aside from the grave duties and dangers of his position to pick up and replace on the limb of a tree a nest full if young birds that had been Imocked Sown by a Federal shel A simihlar story has been told of Lincoln to illus trate his tenderness of heart, and the probability is that the fable originated away back in the early dawni of civiliza tion. It is mostly so with the anecdotes which figure in the history of great men end events. When they are not bor rowed from the ancients and handed Sdown through successive generations. they are manufactured by skillful writ ers to suit particular characters and oc casions.

BULN BULN AND WARRAGUL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. THE BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
BULN BULN AND WAR RAGUL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. THE BAZAAR. -0 The three days' bazaar and produce sale in aid of the funds of the above Society was opened in the Public-hall last evening. It seems to have been a mistake, however, to have selected the Queen's Birthday as the date of commencement, for the secretary in formed us that a rmmber of the farmers were so deeply imbued with loyal sentiments and respect for the Throne that they positively declined to cart produce on Her Majesty's natal day. There was consequently very little /rm and dairy produce to hand yesterday, but to-day there will be a greatly increased supply, and another supplementary instalment to-morrow. The Warrugul Fancy Goods Stall dis plays some useful and attractive articles, and is under the manage ment of Mrs. H. R. Rogers, Mrs. H. V. Howell, Mrs. A. B. Tregurtha and Mrs. H. W. Wilkinson, whilst the Warragul Produce Stall is being superintended by Mrs. H. F. Hayes, Mrs. Woos, Mrs. Coghlan, Mrs. O'Dowd and Mrs. W...

LIGHT RAILWAYS FOR GIPPSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
LIGHT RAILWAYS FO01 GIPI'LAND. Sin,-The present crisis in one industrial history is opportune for emphassising the necessity for cheapening agricultural production. 'IThe Ittrlitet. of our farmers is not Melbourne, or even Australia, but the world. The improve Inents in water carriage have etffcted this, and therefore all facilities that tend to place produce aboard ship economically mulst react to the advantage of the exporting country. The Patterson Ministry have recognised this, and .o intendincluding narrow gtngo railways in their political progranmme. Tiho'e interested in the construction of a linel from Warragul to Leongatiua have been holding meetings along the route with a view to enforcing their claim for early attention. The Warragul Shiro Council might straigltway combine with the Woorayl and Narracan Shires in a deputition to the Minister of Railways to back up the agitation of the selectors on the strveyed line. Believing tlut energetic and instant artionl would resilt ...
A SPORTING PREMIER. AN AMUSING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
A SPORTING PREMIER. AN AMUS1?I\ STOI'Y. 0 Lord Iosebery, since his accession to the P'remsiership has been the subject of innumerable stories, nearly forgottoen and 'of course now ncwely raked up, relating to his connection with the tort. There is one thalt has not yet been resuscitated. Some years ago. the Earl of losebery was travelling down to Ayr to attend a r:ace imeeting at which oneo of his horses was to run. Seeing hlim studying the "Racing Calendar." a young Cosusiercial in the carriage with hint who was ignorant of his lordshilp's rank, "forced" a conversation and ended by asking if he knew it good tip for the Welter Cup. Lord Rlosebery entered into the humor of the situation and advised his travelling companion to back Chevronel (his own horse). "Not on !" replied the Commercial. "I never back Lord ilosebery's horses; they say he's a regular chump !" " Iildeed !" said the Earl, rather nettled. "And yet I fancy Chevronel is pretty certain to win,'' " I'll bet you an lleven...
DAIRYMEN AND THE RAILWAYS. PROHIBITIVE FREIGHTS AND USELESS TRAIN SERVICE. A REMARKABLE INTERVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
DAIRYMEN AND THE RAIL WAYS. PROHIBITIVE FREIGHTS AND USELESS TRAIN SERVICE., --0-o- A REMIARKABLE INTERVIEW. It seems useless to expect -the present Minister of Railways to modify the existing railway freights, an1d equally useless to expect the Coin-' missioners to introduce a more con-6? venient train service on the Gippshnid line. These advantages, we are afraid, can olly come under a new and improved regime. The grievances, at all events, lhave been pointed out time after time, antd, of the two, we seem to be farther off alteration than ever. Mr. R. 11. Smyth-.President of the Warragul 'Shire-has had another "go" at the dapartment, and a day or two since sent the result of his inter view to the " Argus." Itn the course of a lengthy letter hlie says: You will reniember in mn3 forme. letter that I stated I could not get milk delivered at Spencer-street before 2.:10 to i p.mu., and that I have to suend it by the passeniger train arriving at l'rillce's bridge at 1.40.

MILK-TESTING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 25 May 1894
MILK-TESTING, St:,-.The reliability of the. Babcock system of milk-testing having been questioned in your columns, I now take the liberty of adding a word on - the subject. For several months past I have taken the tests of milk supplied to the Warragul Butter Factdry. It was in? the earlyumonths of summer that I started and for t time all went .well. We -were never quite without grimnblers, and often those whose tests were the.lowest were the loudest in their protests that they were not bbing treated fairly. Still from the evidence of the neighbors of these dissatified ones,' I was pretty ivell convinced that little or no injustice was done. Either their cows were inferior, their pastures deficient,, or soiue other reasonable explanation apparenit. HIoiwever, with tlce advent of the winter months. the outcry against the systeci increased greatly, and this, I understand is the ex-perience ..of neighbouriun, factories here. The fact is, Sir, whethcer rightly or wrongly, a large sectio...

THE FAIIMERS AND THE PRESS. SIR,-I have been going to write to you before to thank you on behalf of the farmers in this district fbryour successful protest against the refnsal of the Secretary forAgriculture to analyss specimens of sugar beet which some of us have grtow as an experiment this season. It is well that we have a newspaper in our midst which is alive to our interests, and which often takes up the cudgels for us when really we onlght to take them up ourselves. lint yon know, sir, farmers as a rule ha:ve to put in all their time at downright hard work, and there being, as yotu ay, no unity amongst us, we often let things pass when really we ought to be up in arus against thenm. What we want is an Association, like a Progress Association, to watch our interests an11d to take up such questions as the analysis of sugar beet. which you so forcibly advocated in several very sensible articles. I sent copies of the issues to the Agricultural Department, and the result is that thi...
