The cowl does not make the friar. CORRESPONDENCE. THE TRAMWAY CONFERENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

The owl doe not mket he fir. CORRESPONDENCE. THE TRAMW1AY CONFERENCE. TO THE EDrTOn. Sin,-Reading in your journal a report of the steps arrived at by the Tramway MIuni cipal Conference, at Waterloo, I was sur pr:sed to see that they agreed to "recom mend the Minister of Railways to construct a line from Tramalgon to Yarram, as the best to benefit South Gippsland." A more absurd conclusion could scarcely be arrived at. That such a line would (as every line would) be advantageous tothose residing in the immediate country it passed through, is most likely; but that it would do anything more than that, or be of any practical utility to South |Gippsland generally, is a most fallacious idea to entertain. The Shire of Alberton, comprising an area of 2000 square miles, embraces the whole of what we may call south South Gippsland-i.P., the south ern portion of the South Gippsland Elec torate. There is comparatively very little good land east of Yarram, as the fertile soil -the land now being...

HY .SENATOR. GARLAND 8 0PPED DRINKING. I may tell a ,new story. pa Senator Garland, ofArkansas, s'ayp the Washine ton correspondent of the Philadelphia 5mese..., He is a great lawyer--one of the two or three really big lawyers in the Senate.- He has always been a modest man,but:whatever he has hiid to say he liea said itas well as Edmunds, Thurman,, or evtn Don Cameron coiuld ay it. How-. ever, that has nothing to do with the story. Garld d has always been a liberal drinker. That is why (or at least one reason .why) he is so poppls~ in Krkanams, where people would qooner dijnk with a man than to shoot him, although not at all averse to the latter on certain occa sions. Coming to the Senate, Garlahd kept up his habits; and became personally one of the most popular and loveable men on the floor. Everybody likes him and everybbdy respects his integrity n?o les than his great ability. So li took .hli drinks with Vest, Thurman, Edmund'. Vooihees, Bayard and the othors, and became also fa...

BLOW YOUR HORN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

BLOW YOUR. HORN. ,ty boy, blow your horn. Rise above the thing mistaken for modesty, Which' defrauds the world of something good., If you have a musical horn, blow it. If you don't, it may not be blown, and the world will lose so much good music. But make sure that you have something te say before you yell, " Mr. hairman I" You may get the floor and make a fool of yourself. Don't blow your' horn for' the mere purpose of making a noise. Musio: is noise, butnoise is not necessarily musio. Don't attract attention to yourself` until you have something about you that' will bear scrutiny. Don't' flash yours paste pin before the. eyes of a diamond broker. If you have a gem 'it will do' very well to let him examine it. Don't wear a "loud.' necktie with a' dirty collar. The necktie will serve oilyi to attract attention to the collar. Keep in the crowd until you have: something in yourn mind: that -will make you shine'on the platform.

THE PROFANATION OF CATHEDRAL CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

THE PROFANATION OF CATHE DRAL CHURCHES. The grand and spacious nave of St. Paul's Cathedral obtained the name of Paul's walk, a name only too suggestive of the profanitions of which it became the scene. It was the common lounge of the idler, the Fop's Alley of the day. It will be remembered that there were two doors exactly opposite to each other, piercing the north and south wall, about the middle of the nave, and that there were grand. entrances at each. of the transepts. These two sets of doors, immediately opposite to each other, were only too suggestive to the profane of the ease with which a short cut might be made from one side of the churchyard to the other. A common thoroughfare was soon established. Presently men were not satisfied with merely passing through the church. The porter with the heavy burden on his shoulders, the water carrier with his buckets, found it pleasant enough to set down their burdens, and to rest in the cool shade of massive pillars. Nor was this all...

FAMOUS COBBLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

(FAI?OUSUCOBBjLERu. No one but a shoemaker could have thought 'Coleridge serious in hIs strange saying that the shoemaker's bench had produced more eminent men than any, other handicraft. The Shoe and Leather Reporter has, however, compiled a-." bill of particulars," in the shape of a list of famous cobblers, which seems to act as an' effectual 'estoppel on all jealous:craftsmen. Hans Christian Andersen, who needs no introduction, may bead the list, and Hans Sachs, of Nuremberg, who, though he made shoes all his life, yet made 6,000 poems, plays, farces and rhyming fables, may be put next.

HOW TO "TAKE" WELL IN A PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

HOW TO "TAKE" WELL IN A PICTURE. "The question is often asked," said an' experienced photographer, "'why actors' and actresses take the most pleasing pic tures. It is because they study the prin ciples of art and good taste in their pro fession, and understand how to dress. Moreover, they usually bring a selection of veils, flowers, curls, braids, laces, and' sometimes costumes, to give the'photo grapher a choice of accessories. They come when they are wholly at leisure, and' are not flustered. A red face takes black, and they know it. Then they do not load themselves down with gewgaws and' Laberdasheries, to show all that they have got in worldly goods. Few persons know .how to dress for a picture like an actress. rue best materials for ladies to wear when about to sit for a photograph are such as will fold or drape nicely likereps, winceys, poplins, satins and silk. Laven der, lilac, sky blue, purple and French blue take very light,-and are worse for a' picture than pure white.' C...

THE SOUTHERN ASPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

THE SOUTELERN ASPECT. BY A TRAVELLER. I have just completed a tour of the townships of South Gippsland known as Port Albert, Tarraville, Alberton and Tarram, and think that perhaps a few items of interest to your readers may be culled from the daily gossip. Port Albert is not in any great stage of advancement at present, my opinion being that unless something is done to effect communication by rail or to in duce a company to start with capital and give proper steam communication, the business of this neat and aristo cratic portion must retrograde. Tarrarille possesses a few advantages over Port Albert, such as police offices and Shire Hall. These cause a little business, though the township of to day is nothing in comparison with the good old days of twenty years ago. I noticed in passing that it possesses four churches, viz., Wesleyan, Epis copalian, Roman Catholic and Pres byterian, all of which bodies, save the last, have a resident Clergyman. Alberton is one of the oldest town s...

VoLst hf AKEEns.--In approaching Mlitten wald, Bavaria. one would scarcely suppose that, near upon 8000 violins, which are made in that quaint village, are yearly sent to lii ferent bcountries. Violin' making has been carried on there for the last SCl years. At present there are two depdts. each of which send out about 4000 instruments every year. The inhabitants work in their own hoises.

Agricultural. FIGHTING THE PHYLLOXERA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 29 September 1881

FIGHTING THE PHlYLLOXERA. In 1875, Professor Hilgard, of the Univer. sity. (San Francisco), delivered a lecture be fore the State .Viticultural Association on the phylloxera. That lecture, revised to date, is now published in pamphlet form, and. affords a valuable resum6 of the facts so far as known. The general characteristics of the phylloxera or root-louse insect has been many times described, and'its life-history is coin paratively well known; for the best efforts of the scientific world have been dlirected.tq this important problem. It may be said in general terms that no other insect known has exhibited so many forms and modes of life.' It refuses to live on the leaf .of some varieties of grape; and it neglectsthe roots of other varieties. This fact is tlekeynote in planning 'for the future vineyard, and Professor Hil gard devotes considerable space to the phyl loxera-proof kinds. The injury .done to the vine by, the leaf form of the phylloxera, is, Processor Hilgard says, com...

WARRAGUL POLICE COURT. TnuRsnAlr 22?~ SEPTEMIER. (Before Percy J. Smith, Esq., C. Sargeant, Esq., and J. Medley, Esq., J.'s P.) Constable Commans, as summoning officer, proceeded against Patrick Kelly for non-compliance with the compulsory clause of the Education Act. Mr. Commins appeared for the defendant. The truant inspector, Mr. McAlpine, gave evidence as to the at tendance of the defendant's child, but would not swear that the school was within distance by a Government road, though it was by the road in use. The defence was that the nearest road to the school was only in use on suf ferance, as it passed through a neigh bor's selection, the distance by a Government road being four miles. Mr. Commins therefore based his defence on the point that a road through a neighbor's selection was not a road within the meaning of the Act. The Bench concurred in this view, the Chairman, Mr. Smith, remarking that a road through a neighbor's selection might be stopped at any time, and therefor...

Without: the moral interest derived from humanity, the physical .beauty and: grandeur " would count for'comparatively little; even the most splendid prospects in nature assert but a limited power over the mind until they have been linked to the story of noble lives. What are the fields, however good for growing corn, that have been hallowed by no memories of martyr and hero ? The rivers that are songless but for their own natural music P The moun tains that are no more associated with human life than are the clouds which mantle round tneir summits P Even the sky-eleaving peaks that rise from the Yosemite Valley, and the groves of that marvellous region, must, after all, be comparatively tame, since, with all their material magnitu...
