HE INVESTED ONLY 7s 6d. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
HE INVESTED ONLY 7s 6d. There is a man who has spent the past twenty-five years of his life exploring for gold and other minerals in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and New Zealand. He has no doubt picked up some money, yet he says that the investment of 7/6 brought him in bigger returns than any other he ever made. Yet, hold on a minimte. Don't let uns jump to the conclusion that we can all get rich out of the proceeds of 7/ti till we hear urtlrtifrbie-this'l irancior Hb1sa a huimerous wayr of liuititig a serious thing, for which we should like him all the more.

LOOK [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
LOOK , Os TillS ]PICTURE : There was a man, who had a store, And he was wondrous wise, And as he marked his prices down, Took care to advertise. And daily people thronged that shop, And goods they bought galore; The owner gleefully exclaimed " I'll advertise some more." "There's wondrous powerin printers ink When properly applied; That it's essential to success Can never be denied." Though times were hard, and money . scarce,', The trade done was surprising. Hechuaicled gaily to himself, And kept on advertising. The business grows by leaps and bounds, He rakes the shekels in, ?nid blesses loud the paper hold That helps him make his tin. An oN THiIS: He sat at his door at noonday, lonely, glum aud sad. - *The flies were buzzing around hlils, Ledliy a bleiivinged gad. Not a customer darkened his portal,. Not a sign of business was there; .But the .flies kept on buzzing about the old, man's hair.. . At last, in misery, he shouted : ' Great Scotta I'nicBvered with flies;" And the zepher...
MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
MELBOURNE .LETTER. (F'oa 01. OWN CORRESP'ONDENT.) --0--- The tariff has opened smoothly. When we overcome the laudable in congruity of one lawyer making tariff proposals, and another charged with the delivery of 'thbo budget statement for the year, we rdalise the force of that sententious remark of Mr. Han cock, that everything is possible in a democracy. For if there is a class 6f men utterly unskilled in the art of handling figures, the lawyers are they. I never knew a lawyer capable of grasping an arithmetical difficulty in my life, or of being, in respect to mat ters where figures are concerned, men of business knowledge. In this they are even worse than journalists, who exhibit the same intellectual incapacity most absurdly. It was quite impos sible, for instance, to cause poor Henry Clarence Kindall to perceive that when he affixed the name of Henry Parker or Toby Barton to a cheque that he ought not to sign it. in his markedly individual handwriting-written with the left hand...
APPLES AND PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
APPLES AND PEARS. Specimens of produce grown in village settlements are continually arriving at the oflice of the Minister of Mieiis from .settlers who desire to show how well they are getting on. Last week the residents oh the settlement at Hinnomungie, near Omeo, sent down some giant pears and. immense apples that were creditable alike to the cultivators and the excellence of the soil on which they were grown. The pears must have weighed a couple of'pounds each, and the apples, which were of the Jonathan variety, were large and healthy. The only. drawback to cultivation in this district. which is essentially suited for all kinds of agriculture, is the absence of rail way facilities. Labor that can produce such results is simply wasted in aplace 4 without access to mzarket,

2000 SLEEPERS WANTED [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
2000 SLEEPERS WANTED In a letter to the Premierthe Agent. General states that. the Londoi, Brighton, and South Coast Railway are still desirous of testing red gum sleepers on theirline. The chief store. keeper of the company had iniformed an officer of thle agency that after care fully examining the various Australian woods exhibited at the Imperial Insti tute, he had come to the conclusion that red gum was most suitable for railway sleepers. He would be quite willing tc give an order for 2000 Victorian sleepers if the. price ivas satisfactory. Mr Gillies, therefore, inquires the price per sleeper for the quantity named, including delivery on the Thames at Deptford. The sleepers should be 9 fedet long by 10 inches wide by 5 inches' thick. The letter has been forwarded to thle Lands Departmerint the secretary of which has scnt a copy to .the -tiw Millers Association, with a request tlhat the price and other particulars should be quoted.
WHISPERS ! [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
WIISPrERIs! Never before in the history of football in Warragul has so much exmetement been evinced over the outcome of a single mnatch as that to take place on Wednesday next, and speculation is rife as to the men -not tmentioned yet-to be put in at the last moment. It is whispered that no less than £90 is laid in wagers over the match Warra? gul v. IHalf-holiday. to take place on Wednesday next, and all oven money, and this independent of small wagers. It is whispered that the Warragul team have a trump card in Douglas, who is.a marvel at high marking, and has a first class reputation as being a fitst wing man. It is also whispered that a well-known player with Warragul last season, who has been vegetating within the radius. will be to the fore on Wednesday next., It is almost a moral. that one or two protests will be made, but these are re garded as coming to nought. The Half-holidayites will play to win, and if their form is up to their first match, with the few known clinkers t...
The Fibre Market. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
The Fibre Market. Many of. those interested in fibre culture are inclined to the belief that after the next two years the market for coarse cordage fibre will be oversupplied and the Victorian grower will be com. polled to produce a much finer fibre suitable" for exporting to the North of Ireland to be consumed by the linen manufactories. Mr. Joseph Knight of the Agriculturul department, does not support this view. Il states that the demand for cordage fibre will take many years to supply and that enquiries for thousands of tons of fibre of the coarser description from English manti factures at a price which would give the grower £35 per ton imn Melbourne, If MDr. Knights assumption be the correct one its significance will be apparent, for until the Victorian grower has obtained suflicient experience in the industry to enable him to compete with the coutinental growers of linen fibre lihe he can realise handsoume' recurns by pro ducing a coarser fibre and collecting the seed at the ...

(Eason Tows AND, CousTRY Jounsna.) -0 Laying Poison.-Can a squatter lay phosphorised pollard within three feet of the boundary fence of my freehold c.p., the poison being dangerous to fowls, dogs, and even children ?-We believe not. What is the limit of distance from a boundary fence to lay poison ?-He may lay poisoned meat, but not within a distance of three quarters of a mile from a public road or track used for travelling stock. Paraffin Oil.-I have been advised to rub a gun-barrel with paraffin oil to prevent rust forming on it. Are paraffin oil and kerosene one and the same thing? Refind petroleum is known as kerosene, and also as paraffin oil, but the paraffin oil of commerce (which is used as a lubricant, &c.) is of a very pale amber color. It is bright, perfectly trans parent, and remarkably limpid. Its odor is slight, and combustion slow. It can be burned in a lamp without charring the wick.

TURF AND FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
U.TURF..AND FIELD. The English Rngby Football Union is:not likely to accept the invitation to send a team to New Zealand in 1890, as it prefers-to send a team to- Cape Town instead. The shilling fund started by "the "'Dailyy Telegraph" in cbnuectinoh With the movement for presenting a national testimonial to Mr. W. G. Grace, the well-known cricketer has already reached 21,000 shillings (1,000 guineas). • Lord Rothschild has con tributed 1,000 shillings (£50), and H:R.H. the Duke of Cambridge, the Marquis of Balisbury and Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, M.P., have subscribed to the fund. In consequence of the recent fine weather enormous scores have been made in the cricket matches. Already fifty individual scores of over 100 have been made this' season, including the following:--W. G. Grace, 125 against Kent, this being his fifth score of over a century ; R. S. Lucas, 1S5, and Sir- T. C.; O'Brien, '202, against Sussex; R, Abel, 157 against Lan Scashliiro,
FLAX SCUTCHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
FLAX SCUTCHINGS. -4-- At Calrossie on Saturday a striking object lesson as to the comparative values of good and inferior flax was given. From 141b. of poor straw the yield of scutched fibre was just over 8oz. ; whereas from a like quantity of good straw more than 21b. was obtained. At the late Mr. F. Wood's estate of Ripplingham, says the Yarram " Chronicle," the preparation of flax is now going on. Mr. G. Wood is in charge. This year Mr.' Wood has provided himself with machinery in order to treat the flax himself, instead of sending it away as has been been done in previous years. The plant consists of a breaker and scutcher, and is worked by one horse. Mr. Wood has had eight acres under crop, and is fairly well satisfied with his results, though, in common with others, his yield was affected by the drought.. In consequence of the insufficient rainfall the flax was short, and has, therefore,, though Messrs. Millar and Co. vouch for its good quality, realised a lesser price than if...
A THEATRE ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
A THEATRE ON FIRE.-This happened recently, and the panic was only averted by the presence of mind of one of the actors. He was taking the part of a comic sailor. When the fire broke out, and the people were rising from their seats in terror, he leaped into the centre of the stage and commenced the sailors' horn pipe. The panic was averted, the fire got under, and the curtain came down amidst a storm of cheers. All that is required at a crisis is presence of mind. When we are suddenly taken ill and know not which way toeturn. if we only have the presence of mind to think of Holloway's Pills and Ointment all will be well and danger need notbe feared ,
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 18 June 1895
GOD SAVE THE QUZEN. At a, meeting of the electors of West Moreton, held at Lowood. Queensland on Thursday night, a number of members of: the Assembly. were present.

Someone in the audience suggested that Mr.: Grimes should sing the National Anthem, whereupon he asked some one to start it. This was done, half the audience standing and the other' half sitting, while groans, whistling, and cat-calls completely drowned the voices of those who sang. Three cheers were then given for the, Queen and Mr. Grimes recited the second verse of the National Authem amidst interruption.
