PRESENTATION TO MRS. WILKINSON. SILVER CAKE BASKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

PRESENTATION TO MRS. WILKINSON. -- --- - BY HER LADY FRIENDS. SILVER CAKE BASKET. A very pretty compliment was ten dered to Mrs. Wilkinson by her lady friends, on the day 18th inst. About 30 ladies assembled to do honor to theirguest, who has since left Warragul for Townsville. The large hall in the shire buildings was selected for the occasion, and was very prettily draped and decorated with art muslin and flowers. Lace-curtains were sus pended from the spacious windows, and the floor was covered with carpet, while easy chairs were distributed in vitingly around the room. It is not to much to say, that the department was never so tastefully decorated, for the cold bare hall was converted by skilful hands into a pretty and cosy drawing-room. Choice refreshments were provided, and were duly appre ciated, the tables presenting a very ornate appearance in consequence of the delicacies being displayed in a very choice and liberal collection cf crystal and silver. Mrs. J. Copeland was as...

During the time he was recently in England, our Governor, Lord Brassey, made several public references to the desirability of fostering a liking for naval service among the youths of Aus tralia, and, as a means of cultivating the taste, the necessity for recruiting for the Royal navy in these colonies. It is understood that his Lordship also brought the matter privately under the notice of the Admiralty, and that there is a disposition on the part of the autho rities to practically test the proposal, and possibly, if found successful, to provde training ships in connection .wth the Australian. station. If this should be done, there are thousands of boys and youths, as well as their parents, who will be interested in ob taining something more than the very ,vague knowledge they at present pos sess of how naval recruits are entered, .Wvhat ...

DE ROUGEMONT. HIS STORIES PUERILE. IMPOSSIBLE AS AN EXPLORER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

DE ROUCEMONT. HIS STORIES PUERILE. IMPOSSIBLE AS AN EXPLORER.. A special correspondent to the "Argus," writing from Newcastle, New South Wales, interviewed by Mr W. R. Tiotkens, who was second in command. of the Giles Exploring Expedition, and who is now inspector of forests and conditional purchases in the Land Board district of Maitland, in reference to the statements by M. Louis de Rouge mont to the effect that the Giles party fired upon a party of blacks. Mr Tiet kens gave an absolute denial to the, charge. He says that when the party were taking possession of the blacks' watering-places they had frequently, to discharge their carbines over theim, but no harm was ever done to the na tives. If the party had not done this they would have been slaughtered by the spears of the blacks. Rougemont has, he thinks, been studying Mr Giles's journal, and has fabricated the charge. Rougemont's story about finding Gibson in a state of idiotcy amongst the blacks is described by Mr Tietkins as...

E STROYERS. SLUGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

E STROYERIS. SLUGS. In most gardens slugs are very troub lesome in spring and early summer, eat ing up the young seedling plants. In moist localities they are more of a nuis ance than where the soil and situation are drier. The kinds of soils most favor able to the incr-ase of slugs are also those best adapted by nature for carry ing out the me:hxods of cultivation most inimical to slug life and at the same time aid in increasing the fertility of the land. Loams, and l.oms incling to clay, in wet localities almost invariably carry a large number of slugs, and to keep them under should be the aim of the cul tivator. The first step in this direction is to have a homogeneous arrangement in the garden, in order that a large piece of ground can be dealt with in the au tumn and early winter. This having been arranged, a trench 2 feet wide and 2 fec: deep should be taken out at one end of it immediately the crops are clear ed, and the whole vacant space turned over to this depth and ridged...

FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

FARM NOTES. Farmers, go through your flocks of sheep occasionally, and weed out the poor ones. Not all the ewes are fit for breeders. Clover is fine for hogs; but clover alone will not fatten pigs in satisfactory form. Clover is good, but is not the "whole thing." To educate the farmer to properly handle his milk until he reaches the fac tory should be one of the objects of every good factory manager, because no mana ger I care not how good he be, can make good butter out of bad milk. The question, "Does dairying pay?"d has long since been answered very em phatically in the affirmative. mnd the leading question confronting the dairy man of to-day is how he may reduce the cost of production, and enhance the va lue of his product, that he may reap still greater profits from his investment. When by the expenditure of a few pounds pure-bred rams of the very best breeds can be obtained, there is no ex cuse for the farmer who will In the pre sent day place an inferior or mongrel bred r:am...

WOMEN IN THE CUBAN ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

WOMEN IN THE CUBAN ARMY" The number of women in the Cuban army at the present time is said to be growing considerably, for, while there were a hundred under the command of General Maceo at the time of his death, there are at least twice as many now with General Gomez's forces. They number many representatives of the best families, who have sold their jew els and given up their homes in the cause of liberty, or in order to accom pany their relatives, preferring this course to remaining unprotected and possible victims to the Spanish soldiery. These women wear a short skirt of brown linen and a blouse, with high boots of tanned leather, their hats be ing ordinary broad-brimmed straw ones, with the flag of Cuba stuck in front. Most of them ride, and they are armed with machetes, which they carry at their sides, and with revolvers and cart ridge belts. Superstitious persons may deem it interesting to note that when Princess Beatrice was married she wore her mother's lace, and that each ...

DISCOLORATION OF CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

DISCOLORATION OF CHEESE. Of Il:te the subject of cheese discolora tion is one to which much a\ttention has been drawn, and its cause and treatment seem to have been abundantly discov ered. The widely-proclaimed results of the labors of the Scotch Cheese Dis coloration Committee will be familiar to most readers. The use of pure cultures -which is the remedy for discolcr.t!on set down by the above committee-will probably tend to the manufacture of a better article, that is, an article Mhore free from taint-but it may be that the principle involved in the use of these culture.is a bad one for cheesemakers to follow. Pure cultures are useful mainly for the purpose of counteracting the ef fects of dirty milk, and if the chees maker finds it absolutely necessary to resort to their use in order to make cheese that will be free from discolora tion or other taint, he must know that he is using milk which is anything but fit for the purpose. Of much more value would it have been if the commit...

"FORTY YEARS AGO." OLD COLONIAL REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

"FORTY YEARS AGO." OLD COLONIAL REMLINIS CENCES. "Forty years ago!" What a long stretch back in a young colony- But many of the oldest generation remem ber occurrences in 1857 as well as we remember the events of last year. Mrs. .T. J. Thomas,.who resides at the old established town of Heathcote, Victoria is one who recollects as far back as 57 most vividly. The memory, unfor tunately, is a most painful one, Speaking reminiscently to a journ alist some time ago, said that from '57 to, comparatively, a few months ago, she had not known what permanent relief from pain was. '- It was, as near as I can remember, in ' 57," said she, " that I had my first attack of rheumatisn, and these have followed me up, on and off, for 40 years. About nine years ago my troubles were added to my enlargement of the liver, and this, in itself more than sufficient to kill most people of my age, a was aggravated by inflammation of the kidneys.

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WAR BROKE OUT. A FRENCH VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WAR BROKE OUT. A FRENCH VIEW. 24. de Lanessan, who was for some time Governor-General of the French posses sions in Indo-China, tells some home truths (says the Paris correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph") to those of his fel low-countrymen who have been exulting over the coolness between England and Russia, and makes, at the same time, some other remarks which can hardly fail to interest politicians on your side of the Channel at this juncture. He. does nor believe in war, because he regards the English as too practical to desire it; but he declares that no one acquainted with the naval strength of the two nations can entertain the faintest doubt as to the result if hostilties were to break out. Russia's squadron in the Far East would be annihilated, and she would lose Port Arthur and Ta-lien-TWan in less time than it took the Americans to destroy all the Spanish forces. When Russia has finish ed her Trans-Siberian Railway, when she can convey troops in a fqw ...

HATCHING CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

HATCHING CHICKENS. No chicks grow so rapidly. are so free from sickness, or give so little trouble as those hatched in September. They grow well from the first, and often catch up to their earlier hatched brethren before the summer. September chicks should also be chosen for stock purposes in pre ference to any others, as they are nearly always strong in constitution and also well developed. In rearing chicks there is often trouble caused by giving the hen too many chicks to look after. There is often a tendency to put' two broods together, and start the other hen on a fresh batch of eggs. Individual hens vary very much as to the number of chicks they can comfortably care for. Some mode rate-sized ' ens will take a dozen chicks and cover them, whilst others are un able to cover as many, and as it is im perative that the young broods must be kept warm and well sheltered for the first two or three weeks, it will be the means of checking the growth of the broods if they are not well ca...

WOMEN BLACKSMITH'S IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

WOMEN BLACKSMITH'S IN ENGLAND, We are sorry to say thit fie have nt reliable statistics as to the, number of women employed in England' at' smithy work, but we fancy that our cbirespon dent's figures are not an over-estimitte. We gather from that most insttuctive and interesting work, "The White Blaves of England." by R. H. Sherard (to be bad at Cole's Book Arcade), that., a. great many women smiths are employed at Cradley Heath, an industrial town in the Black County. "Chronic hunger," says the author of the book, "is the ex perienee of most of these women." The work of some of them consists in making heavy chain, at Gs 4d the cwt., and bi laboring inces.antly for 12 hours a day, a woman may get through 1? cwt. in the week. From, the proceeds, the cost of , uel and forge rent have to be deducted. There are other women employed at Cradley, supplying "blast" to the forges i--tnrning wi'eels to work the bellows-= land "when things are good" they earn as Imuch as 6s a week. Girls are a...

DIVINE VISITATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

DIVINE VISITATIONS. - 1By the Rev. E. J. Gough, M.A., Rector of St. Paul's, Dundee. "W'ihat is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou visitest him?"--ps. ii!., 1. "Thou knewest not the time of thy visita tion."--St. Luke xsx.,14. "What is man?" The child of circumstance yet endowed with freedom of moral choice and weighted with the responsibility which that freedom brings. There is, however, another element in human life, so great, so wonderful that David, reflecting on it. felt h!mself sent right back to ask again the elemental question of man's origin, "WHAI T IS MAN ?" W "as it one of those night-watchtings beside his sleep at lethlehem that David thus re flected? The psalm seenms to suggest this. "I will consider Thy heav.us.," he says.

THE BEEKEEPER. HINTS ON BEE-KEEPING. THE SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898

THE BEEKEEPER. HINTS ON BEE-KEEPING. THE SWARMING. Now that the aniary season may be said to be with us, anfew hints may not prove unacceptable to some among our younger readers at any rate. With a spell of warm weather, swarming will become very general. An inspection of the hive will divulge this, as about six or seven days before the bees quit the hive they raise several new queens. Pre parations should have been made pre viously by cleaning and repairing the empty hives, and should new ones have to be purchased, perhaps one of the best will ba a Woodbury. Of course, the old fashioned straw step is the most useful, but much honey is lost, which more than counteracts the extra cost for an improv ed hive, while the fact of being able to dispose of small quantities of honey early in the summer is a distinct advan tage, as the apiarian does not have to wait till the autumn before he sees any return upon the money he has sunk. As most of our readers are aware, the Woodbury hive Is a b...
