SEA VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
SEA VIEW. The dairying prospects are very bright in this district. There is more grass than cattle to eat it. -Yet. notwithstanding this fact; cream continues to be carted to the Melbourne Chilled Butter Company's factory at Bear Creek in very satisfactory quantities. Last week MIr. J. T. Ash croft, carrier, carted in no less than 1 ton 2 cwt. of butter froml the company's factory to the VWarragul railway station. Very -soon the average turn-out from this factory will equal a ton of butter a week. Cream from all parts of the Track is carted to this factory and Mr. Gillon, the man agei, is one o of the most practical men .we hame had in this district. If the fanners only had the money to purchase cows, the yield of milk would haive been enormous this year, but the terrible losses they sustained through the fires have crippled their resources to a great extent this season. Next season, however, they will have recovered them selves, and we may expect the supply of milk and creatn from ...
YARRAGON. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
YARRAGON. Yarragoi is comning to the front in cricket this season. The club now num bers about 60 mnembers. The farmers are crying out, WVhat will we do with our grass; we have not suffi cient stock to keep it down. and it is spoiling. Several at Allanibee are offer ing to take in cattle for three months free of charge to keep the grass down. They have not the means to procure stock themselves at the high prices ruling at present. This district is truly a land of Canaan " flowing with milk and honey." There are many inquiries for land round this neighborhood, but few are willing to sell. The crops have never looked better at this time of the year than they do now, and everyone is looking forward to a year of prosperity.
TROUT FRY. 1,500 LIBERATED LOCALLY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
TROUT FRY. 1,500 LIBERATED LOCALLY. Our local anglers will be pleased to hear that another consignment of trout fry were released in the local streams re cently. The fish, about 1,500, were obtained by the Bulii Buln shire council from the Fish Acclimatisation Society,Gee long, and brought to Drouin. The species are those known as the conunon brown trout and the Scotch burn trout. The former is the most popular of the English trout, and the latter is the favorite "across the Tweed." About 800 of the young fry were liberated on Tuesday week by Mr. V. Young in the Tarago, Ironstone Creek, Gum-scrub Creek, and Whisky Creek, and next day the balance was distributed in the streams south of the railway line the Lang Lang and Musk Creek. Mr. A. W. Reed, of Fern Hill, has pur chased the farm lately occupied by Mrs. Jane Lacey, of Jindivick, and has now removed to that locality. Mr. Reed is one of our most energetic farmers, and has always taken a lively interest in the welfare of the distri...

CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
CROSSOVER. A curious snake incident occured on Thursday last at Crossover. - It at least has the merit of beinig perfectly true. A schoolboy was going hone along the saw mnill trau'way, and found a large black snake of a very fightable nature wriggling abouit near one of the iron rails. The boy called for a schoolfellow to come and take a hand in the killing, so boy number two came, and after taking a survey of things in general, he decided that the contract was a tritle too big, and that his mother, 'Mrs. Fairweather, would be of great assistance if she could only be per suaded to walk down a long hill for the purpose of killing at snake. So the boys shouted and made coummotion enough to scare all the snakes within the radius of a mile, and Mrs. Fairweather, thinking that it must indeed be a peculiar snake to stand all that racket if lie was alive. went down, and to her great surprise. found that the snake had gone through the fish plate and rail where a bolt was missing, and was f...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. The hot weather of last week, followed by cold winds and hailstorms, has proved very trying to all newly-planted, tender vegetables. If it is certain the plants have received a severe check, it will be far better to replace them, for it is our experience that plants of this class never give satisfaction. In planting out capsi cums, be sure and give them a warm sit uation. These plants do best in soil that has been well prepared for a previous crop. Another sowing of leeks may be made. Those that were sown some time since, and have attained the size of a goose-quill, must now he planted out. The leek does best in a friable soil that has been heavily manured. The plants should be planted in holes (made with a dibbler), about 5 or 6 inches in depth, 8 to 9 inches apart, in the bottoms of drills 15 inches apart, drawn with a hoe, the plants dropped into the holes, and a little fine soil put in to cover the roots. If the weather is dry, the holes may be filled with wa...
ABOUT LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
AEBOUT. LAUGHING. "Laughing," says He'el in his Es thetics, "is a sign that we are wise enough to comprehend the contrast and take note of it" According to L. Du mont, it is ocasioned by the conflict in our mind of two contradictory thoughts, causing a shock. "The recognition of an object," he says, "at first gives a certain impulse to our understanding and stimulates its activity in a certain direction, when immediately a contra dictory. impression of another quality of the same object comes in and forces it into a contradictory direction.". Still the same common theory of contrast, ex cept that with Dumont the contrast rises to a contradiction. Let us study a few cases; first, of what we find to amuse us in acts, and then n words, says a contributor to the "Revue des Deux Mondes." We find the appli cation. of great effort to remove a load that proves to be a trifle ludicrous; as when a man exerts all his strength to force open a door that yields at a touch. or when the clown on th...
BROKEN LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
BROKEN LIVES. God even seems to break them some times, that they may become truly use ful. At least he can use broken lives in His service just as well as the whole; in deed, it appears as if men can never do much for God until they are "broken ves sels." He chooses the weak things of this world, that no flesh may glory. We ought, therefore. never to be afraid of God's providences when they seem to break up our lives and crush our hopes, and even to turn us away from our cho esn paths of usefu;ness and servjic. When He shuts one door it is because He has another standing open for our feet. When He breaks our liven to pieces, it is be cause they will do more for His glory and the world's good, broken and shattered, than whole. A man's wisdom is his 'best friend; folly his worst enemy.-Sir W. Temple. She neglects her heart who studies her glass.-Lavater.
SOME ADVENTURES OF THE QUEEN [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
SOME ADVEATORES OF THE QUEER So numerous and effective are the pre cautions which are taken as a rr.tter of course when the Queen travels by rail or steamer that it is veiy rarely that anV accident happens. However, when her 3Majesty was tra velling from Osborne to Balmoral ih August, 1896, after the pilot-engine whkeh precedes the Royal train had passed Penkridge, near Stafford, it was noticed that one of the signal lights which are carried by the plate-layers who guard the line, had disappeared. An immedi ate examination was made, andl it tran spired that the signalman who carried that light, a man named Powelt must have stood too close to the line, for he had been struck by the pilot-engine in its passage, and the blow had smahed the skull. * The Queen was informed of the un toward accident. When she had fintsfiedt her journey she immediately ordered Sit Arthur Bigge, her private secretary to' make enquiries and subsequently tot send a cheque for L10 and a letter ex pressing her ...
A CURIOUS CYCLING [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
A CURIOUS CYCLING A correspondent of the "Daily Tele graph" vouches for the following curl- ous cycling incident, which, he says, oc curred at Tuxford, near Newark:--A young lady was riding down a steep hill, when, owing to her feet slipping off the pedals, she lost control of ther machine, and ran at a furious rate in the direction of a cottage at the foot or the hill, the door of which was closed. A serious accident appeared imminent;. when events took an unexpected turn. At the critical moment the door was opened by the occupier, an old lady, and the bicycle and rider, pursuing their headlong course, entered the domicile, knocking the old lady backwards over her daughter into the room. - The run away bicycle, after overturning furni ture and crockery, deposited its fair rider on the floor of the apartment. Hap pily none of the parties were much the worse for their exciting experience. It would ill become us to be sceticle where the 'Telegraph" believes.
THE TWINS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE TWINS. 1. Two resebuds opened in a day, An angel passing 'long the way The shimmer of their bright eyes caught. "Those pretty budo my master bought" She plucked one for the master's bower. It's life on earth war: but an hour. II. One bud on earth, and one in heaven. And both were by the Master given. But now 'twixt earth and heaven there flow8r The fragrance of that plundered rose The stolen bud embowered in blise, The sister bud doth stoop to kiss. IT. And angels tread that perfumed way That Jacob Ladder-day by day. And oft there comes a still, small voles That bids the stricken hearts rejoice : A voice as soft as note of dove, That tells of God's o'ershadowing love. D.P?L.

I lTHE PENNY POST. A corresponden: writes as follows: As pertinent to the question of the Post Office, the following abridged extracts from MBiss Plumptre's admirable boon on "Natural Causation" should be of phb lic interest:- In 1607 Kicg James granted to James Stanhope - fr:st Lord Stanhope - the Postmastershily of England, under the ?itle of "Master of the Posts and Messan gws," with a foe of 100 marks a year.

A BISHOP ON CO-OPERATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
A BISHi-IOP ON CO-OPERATION. The Bishop of Ripon, last month, in opening the Labor Association's Exhibi tion of Goods produced in Co-opera tive Workshops at the Crystal Palace, said the history af the Co-operative movement was not a history of uninter rupted success, but of success achieved and continued in spite of difficulties. It had survived the pessimism of prophets and the dangers of the crises which had befallen it When they looked back on its history they could see that matters which had augured Ill had really been benedictions in disguise, just as in the case of machinery .competing with labor. They were able now to congratulate those who had taken part in the move ment, especially the chairman, on the results attained, results which must .have far exceeded their most sanguine hopes and achieved In spite of the va ticinations of those who bad prophe sied evil things. There were now upwards of 1500 so cieties doing business to the amount of nearly fifty millions sterling. He...

A PATHETIC STORY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
A PATHETIC STORY. During the early honur of a recent Saturday morning (says a well-known correspondent of "Lloyd's") a peculiar ly pathetic scene was wltaessCe in iol loway road. Two well-dressed ladies were proceeding in the direction of the station arch, and were just passing a coffee stall, when a poorly clad m.an of about twenty-five darted out, and, snatching away a purse which one of the ladies was carrying in her hand, made ott. Three young men, hearing cries of "Stop thief!" gave chaAe, and captured the fugitive In Crane grove, leading out of Furlong road, which the man evidently did not know was a cul de-sac. He begged piteously to be let go, saying that he only stole the purse as he was starving. The three young men were inexorable, however, and said they should awalt the arrival of the lady whose purse had been stolen. On her arrival the man's captors were natonlshed to see her fail on her knees and offer up a prayer for the man's for givenese. This was followed a few min...

THE FASCINATION OF SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE IFASCINATION OF SCIENCE. In the course of his bright and brief presidential address at the opening of the International Congress of Zoolog Ists at Cmunbridge last month, Sir John Lubbock said:--Few people seem to re alise how muchl science has done for ran. and still fewer how much more it would do if permitted. More students would doubtless have devoted them selves to science if it were not so sys tematically repressed in our schools; if boys and girls were not given the im pression that the field of discovery is well-nigh exhausted. We, gentlemen. know how far that is from being the case. Much of the land surface of the globe is still unexplored; the ocean is almost unklnown; our collections con tain thousands of new species waiting to be described; the life history- of many of our commonest species relnmuins be investigated or have only. recently been discovered.

MISCELLANEOUS. SMOKERS FOR THE APIARY. A Good Smoker Described—When to Use and What to Burn In It. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
MISCELLANEOUS. SMOKERS FOR THE APIARY. A Good Smoker Deseribed-W-hen to U.. and W~hat to Burn In It. A good smoker is one of the essen tials in a becyard, while a poor one is a nuisance. A good smoker has a strong draft-strong enough to blow the smoke clear across the hive and down between the frames to the bottom of the hive if needed. It is often necessary to blow the smoke down between the frames, especially when you want to drive the bees out of an upper story. A good smoker has a lively spring, one that contracts and enlarges quickly. A coiled spring is good. The leather on a smoker should not be too heavy, but soft and spongy. Do not purchase too small a smoker. A writer in The Farmeis' Advocate thinks it pays to use the smoker every time one opens a hive, although he is careful not to overdose the bees with smoke. Io says: "I go to a hive that I want to look into and take off the cov er, then start to raise the quilt at one corner. As I continue to take it off I gently puff i...
