A1tARACAN WEST MUTUAL. IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. An interesting debate took place on Saturday last, on the subjectof Tram-. ways. The question was, " Which would be more servicable to thisdis trict?"

Thereis evidentlya .great lack of, information, throughout the district about tramways, no one seems to know authoritatively-what they will" cost.per mile, the gradients on which they may bo worked with advantag., nor the cost.of haulage.

TAKING IN AN AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 22 September 1881

TAKiNG IN AN AUSTRALIAN. Jonathan Hall and John Mills were indicted at the last Middlesex sessions for having stolen £45, the property of ThomasGreen Atkinson. In opening the case Mir. Purcell said the charge was larceny by what is popularly known as the "confidence trick," and he proceeded to give a narrative of the facts. The prosecutor, a Govern nent clerk at Melbourne, who had been 29 years in Australia, was walk ing near King's Cross on June 18th, when Hall accosted him, and asked him the way to the Agricultural-hall. The prosecutor said he knew very little about the neighborhood, but be thought he was going the right way. Hall remarking that he was astranger in London, and could not bear to hear the noise of the wheels, and would rather hear the noise of his machinery in Manchester, the prosecutor asked him if he came from Manchester, and hesaidthat he did, and from Cheetham hill. They then adjourned to a ub lichouse, where they were joined by Mills, who asked the way to the B...

A NEW GRUBBING MIACHINE. The reported trial of a tree grubber, a brief notice of which appeared in our last issue, caused some little ex citement in the neighborhood of War ragul; .and not a few of those who attended the horse parade at Brandy Creek on Saturday also had in view the opportunity, which our report led tlhenm to expect would be afforded them. of witnessing the new grubbing apparatus at work.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1881. WE have, on more than one occasion, alluded to the necessity for the ap pointment of a second stipendiary magistrate for Gippaland, and we are pleased to see that the municipal.. bodies are taking the subject into don sideration, oui" only wonder being that they have been so slow to move in the matter. At a recent sitting the Sale BoroughCouncil passed the following resolution :-" That, in the opinion of " this council, it is imperative that an "additional police magistrate be ap "pointed for the Eastern Bailiwick; "as, owing to the great extent of the " district, and the widely-scattered "centres of population there.to be "visited, it is manifestly impossible "for any one officer to eficientlv dis "charge the duties required of him "under the present arrangements; "and that the several Municipal "Councils throughout the Bailiwick, "and the Mining Board, be asked to "urge on their members iii Paili:a " ment the desirability of at once ' bringing the mat...

For the Ladies. THE NEW YORK STYLE OF WEARING HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

rTE NEW YORK STYLE OF WEARING HA!llL The niode of wearing the hir.as adopted by the ladies of New fork is becoming more and more peculiar. 3fost fashions change' gridually. Unless that were the case n, fashion would be followed, for excessive sud denness would render patent its absurdity.. In looking through a series of fashion-plates, commencing some fifty years ago, when the rage for phrenology had brought high fore heads into vogue, the hair was brushed back from the brow, so as to show it to its fullest extent. It gave women amasculine, staring expression; still, the passing ilterest in phrenolbgy sustained it. .. Then phrenology waned; and women began to dress their hair reas'oably, allowing it to shade the brow, as' it should do. But of late they have been wearing it lower and lower, until now many ladies absolutely hide their foreheads entirely. .It is not at all unusual to meet well-dressed women whose hair, natural. or:false, comes down to their.eyebrows; others drawinugit ...

TO OUR YOUNG MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

TO OUR YOUNG MEN. BYT YEANIAS. Perhaps there never was a period in the world's history, when so much at tention was paid to appearances, as at the present; and to this cause may be traced the many frauds and deceptions that exist amongst us. How many men are but living contradictions; walking lies. There is any number of skin deep saints in the world; and sheeps clothing is always in great de mand. Then young men be true ! let your conduct be transparent; and your conscience clear asnoon day skies. The old proverb *cucullus non facit monacium is as true to-day as ever it was. To be thought well of, is in too many instances, the motive power which impels to action. Too high an estimate is placed upon the good opinion of others; and very frequently self respect sacrificed in order to gain it. But he is a true man, and he alone, who "weighs the solid worth of self applause," and is prepared to sacrifice appearances, and even the good opinion of others if necessary, in order that he may...
