The Strength of a Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 5 June 1894
The Strength of a Horse. When you hear of "horsepower," you must understand that it means the strength of one horse. "Two horsepow er" is equal to the strength of 15 men or two horses, and 15 men are about as strong as GO boys under 14 years of age. One horsepower is equal to the strength of I3 men. And the strength of one elephant is more than the strength of four horses. In St. Louis there is a race track which is kept in order by an ele phant. The elephant draws the roller, works the scraper and does all the track work. If horses were used for this, it would require two teams. So the strength of an elephant is called "four horsepower."-New York Ledger.

Polly thanked mamma and started off with rather an anxious little face. She walked more and more slowly along the pleasant country road till she reached the white house by the poplars where Jowler lived. As soon as hesawher hejumpeddown from the doorstep where he was sunning himself and ran out with a terrible up roar. Polly thought he looked bigger and crosser than ever before, and his voice echoed from the barns and corn cribs around the house as if at least a dozen dogs were barking at her. With a tr...

Two Convicted Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 5 June 1894
Two Convicted Criminals. An excellent illustration has been af forded us which women would do well to reflect upon. George Barker James Cooper was on Monday found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to l0years' penal servitude for having stabbed his wife with a penknife, thereby caus ing her death. It was shown that he systematically ill used her to the point of thrashing her and blackening her eyes. He was besides proved in court to have been a faithless husband. Not many years ago itwas proved that Mrs. Maybrick, a faithless wife, had poi soned her husband. Sentence-twenty. years' penal servitude. Many persons still consider that, nothing of the kind was prdved. They regardit as doubtful that James Maybrick died of Arsenic poisoning at all. But reven assuming Florence Maybrick's guilt, why the dif ference in the sentences? It is alleged that the fact that Mrs. Maybrick was a faithless wife told heavily against her in the minds of the jurymen, but the fact that George Cooper was a...

Dresses at St. Auguastine. An extract from a letter from St. Aui gnstine ays5 that the girls are dreams in their bright costumes, the skirts mide short and full and kept in shape asmuch by the many rnfled skirts as by the stiff half lining, and a skirt that more than touches the floor is an exception, even for dinner or during the evening. Ihave noticed that with many of the best dressed girls each has one especial color which appears in every costume she wears. A young widow from Kew. Or leans, who receives more attention than four of the prettiest girls put together, wears pale gray on all occasions. -Ber dresses are superb, yet no one there has seen her in the same one twice.
