A BURSTED BOOM. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 26 January 1900

A BdTRST'ED EOOr. - :0: - It may he unknown to people in towns and cities (writes the " WVarr nRtimool Standard") that theie has been a ' hoom' on for the past i-ear in pigs. This began towards the end of 1898, when prices giadually rose both for baconers ald stores, and then last year the figures leapt up till the cul niinatingi point was reached, when £3 could he 6obtaired for a prime bacother. that point was not retained very lone. but figures hung about £2 12s. to £2 15s. for a conilderable period, and then began to recede for three or four weeks slowly, and for the next three markets rapidly. It is thought. that prices have touched bottotn, for the|y are lower than they have been since the opening of the milk factories. How ever, the loom in baconers is compara tively mild to that in store pigs. For 10 months store pigs have been bouhlit by an eaoer crowd of excited pur chasers. Values attained a. height out of all proportion to those for ,aceoners, even when the latter were in...

DEHORNING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 26 January 1900

DEHORNING CATTLE. A correspondent writes:-" The ad vantages resulting from dehorning cattle are so many and so far-reaching in their good effects that the day' is likely to come when the cow with horns will be something of a curiosity. It is simply remarkable how the re movil'of the horn changes the entire nature of an animal, making the sullen and vicioustender and tractable in dis position." -

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 26 January 1900

A hen picnic is quite a usual festr'al now aniong Melbourne girls; but it is not a success, partly because a limp young manr with a nice tie and an ex pression of adoration is essential to the average girl's happiness at a picnic, but mainly -because things generally go wrong. They went wronger than usual with a girl excursion that landed somewhere in the bush near Lilydale one day last week. They were an awfully nice lot of girls, and even the chaperone was young and lovely, but when they were all grouped around their first alfresco feed, a horrid man in old clothes and having a bad expres sion, chanced along, and. after casting a gluttonous eye over the meat and drink, simply entered into possession. He drove the girls off in r flock, and settled down on the comestibles like a plagde. When a timid creature ventured near to eipostulate he grinned at her with a malignant labored grin, and .Shook his club, inid the timid creature fled screaming. The pi'nic stood round ih a circle at ...

The Guardian. PUBLISHED FRIDAY MORNINGS. FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1900. THE EMPIRE PATRIOTIC FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 26 January 1900

PUDLISHIIID FIIDAY YIMOING??S. Iý FIJ~A Y N.41V RY 26,1:000. TTHE EMii?f??RE PATRIOTIC FUND. THE initiaiion of subscription lists for the purpose of soliciting monetary as sistance on behalf of the above fund locally is a step in the right direction. Possibly a more liberal spirit might have been shown at the outset, but in considering the main object such can well be forgotten. Great Britain was probably never engaged in so truly a popular war; yet she never entered on a war with greater reluctance. Some there are who describe it as a Jingo war. That is a slander on the British people. Would the colonists make such haste to help; the mother country if she were fighting for greed of gold or territory, or merely to subject a free people to Britain's rules. We opine riot, nor do her sons believe that Great Britain would countenance such a war. The Government that undertook it would receive but short shrift. The war is popular because the people of the English-speaking race are convinc...

The peopleup Castlemaine way. consider him a champion athlete, cricket and football being his speciali ties. Mr. Lawson is . strong Presby terian, and teaches in one of the local Sunday schools. Curiously, Mr. Law son belongs to the same trade as his unsuccessful opponent-with just t~is difference, that Mr. MI'Cay took;, the L.L.B. degeee course, while Mr. Law son has not yet co!npleted what is known as the ' Articled Clerks' Course.' iord Roberts. is known as an author by his book entitled 'Forty-one years in India,' and by a little work on Wel lington's campaign of Waterloo. He chamipions Wellington, whereas Wol seley in his writings, ever stands up for Napoleon, like Napier, the histo rian of the Peninsular war. There is a goodly run on Lord Roberts' ' India' at the libraries. He and Kitchener belong to a milit...

- CORRESrPONDENCE. (We do not iz cessarily endorse the opinions of of o correspondents.) A DENIAL. TO THE EDITOR 01 THE GUARDIAN. Sir,--Kidly permit me a s?hort space in your valuable paper, as I dcannot allow such scathing remarks as were published in the last issue of your columns by your Toolangi corres pondent to.pass by Aiithout comment. Not that I am actuated by the 'pirit of resentment, but. rather of love of truth and honor, -and if both sides of the case-for one must remembei that every difference has two sides-were exhibited to public gaze, things would appear in a very different light. How ever, a few terse remarks may clear matters a little, and somewhat justify me in the steps I took. (1.) I did not "decide to clash with Mr. Chase" as stated by_ your correspondent, as I have ever sought to work with him, realising that we are not rivals in our work, but laboring in different com partinents of one great workshop, under one Proprietor; " We are not divided 3 all one army ...

Winding the toss, the Railway nimn decited? to hat, and a very good commencement was made by the two first batsmPn, Lannen and Prankerd, who compiled .59 before the first-named was caught by Dr. Baird behind the wickets. Lannen's score of 29 was the result-of yery good cricket. Prankerd was disposed of shortly afterwards by a clever catch by Sykes for a well-made 28, but the remaining batsmen, with the exception of O'Con nor (not out 13), failed to reach double figures, and tie innings closed for 87 runs.
