TELEPHONING ALONG A FENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
STELEPHONING ALONG A FENCE. Wire-fence telephones are now used on many Australian stations, and they are found to be a great boon in com municating between the homestead and outlying boundary huts. Mr. E. Argyle, of Gunbower Station, Gun bower, Victoria, describes his ex perience of the wire-fence telephone in the " Scientific American" as follows:-" Some two years ago I satisfactorily utilised the top wire of existing fences on this station for telephonic use. First of all, I may say that since my station was satisfactorily served by this inexpensive method (2s 6d per mile) of telephoning I have been inundated with letters form all parts of Australia, and that at the present time there are many hundreds of miles of station fences throughout this and the neighboring colonies broughtintorequisition for thepurpose. Our climate, as you are aware. is very dry (average rainfall Sin, to 'in.) ; in consequence insulation is not such an important matter. 'On this property we have abeut 600 ...

WARNER'S SAFE CURE' CURES KIDNEY, URINARY,. AND LIVER DISEASES AND THEIR DEVELOPMSENTS, DYSPEPSIA, JAUNDICE, AND .GENERAL DEBLITY. - HTHOUSANDS OF TESTIMONIALS IN PROOF ý:,..'+OF~ ITS EFFICACY. EFFECTS SAFE,; SURE, PERMANENT. S RoA, QUEENSLAND, 1st August, 1894. From personal experience of the valuable properties of Warner's SAFE Cure, I feel no hesitation in advising persons having liyver disease to take that medicine in preference to any other. For a long time I endured terrible suffering from the complaint. From pains under the shoulder blades, down the'back, and in my chest and sides I could get no rest day or night; my appetite failed, and I became so weak and worn out that I could do no work of. any kind. After spending much time and money,in other directions to no profit, I started to take 'arner's SA?E Cure,-and am thankful to say that I. have thereby quite recovered my usual health.

THE POTATO MOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
THE POTATO MOTH. This small moth, which is, about the size of the codlin moth, and some what rese'mbles it, is proving very destructive in various parts of the Australian colonies. Several years ago it was described as it appeared in the northern river country, but since then it has spread southwards. It will attack potatoes wherever it can get at them, and usually flies at night, and; in consequence, large numbers of the insects can be destroyed by lighting large sldsh lamps, and placing them in the houses in which potatoes are stored. The insects fly towards the light, and naturally fall into the melted slush and get smothered. Old sacks in which potatoes have been stored should be destroyed or scalded in hot water, as they form breeding places for the moths. Other measures, such as keeping the ground clean and burning rubbish will naturally suggest themselves for keeping down this pest. Keeping storerooms so closed that the moths cannot reach the potatoes, using clean seed and ne...

THE DAILIES DISTILLED. Jacob's Theatre, New York, has been destroyed by fire. The total loss is esti. mated at 250,000 dollars (X50,000). The Government has withdrawn the vote for the erection or a stature to Oliver Cromwell at Weestminlster, being afraid of arousing the opposition of. the Irish Nationalists, who strongly object to the statue. Miss Ada Crossley, the Melbourne vocalist, who has been studying under Madame Marchesi, has entered into an engagement to sing at 12 concerts in a tour in the provinces in December next. In, view of the withdrawal by the Government oL the vote for the erection of a statue to Oliver Cromwell at West minister, the "'Daily Chronicle" is ap pealing to the public for subscriptions for the purpose of erecting a statue to the Protector.

LATER DETAILS. "DRINK IS MY RUIN." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
LATER DETAILS. "DRINK IS iIY RUIN." Additional particulars to hand last evening indicate that the deed was of a premeditated and determined character. The deceased evidently went into the scrub carrying his gun, and at a spot about 200 yards from the house, sat on a log and committed the fatal act. The gun was a double-barrelled one, and after placing the muzzle against the, er, he worked the trigger with a' forked stick, the left barrel exploded, the contents passed up through the head and the brains were scattered roundabout. When dis covered the body was in a semi-sitting posture, the left hand still grasping the barrel of the gun and the right hand clasping the stick. From the appearance of things, deceased had evidently shot himself on the previous day. In his possession was found a sheet of note paper on which he had written his last words to those he was about to leave behind. It is written in pencil, and judging by the caligraphy,.was composed at three different intervals. T...

"PUNCH" PICKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
"PUNCH" PICKINGS. - Whenever a State entertainment is given at the English Court, nobody is allowed to applaud. What a cheerful funeral it must appear to the per formers who appear "by command." I There is no rest for the poor unfortunate Chow. Now that he is down every puny punster jumps upon him. It was only yesterday that a man who wore the appearance of not being much concerned about the Income Tax walked in upon us and confidentially informed us that China ought to be looking pretty bright by this time. We fell into the trap and asked him why. " Because," was the reply, "it was first French-polished, and now it has been Japanned." If that punster has any children they are orphans now. Anti-vaccinatlonists, as well as vaccinationists, will be intoerested to learn that in the canton of Berne the question has been submitted to the people by direct referendum. The voting was :- For compulsory vaccination,. 28,000 votes; against, 24,000. Opinions would, therefore, appear to be prett...

WARRAGUL v. HALF-HOLIDAY. (Br PUNTER.) The local clubs met together for the first time on Wednesday afternoon in their first try in connection with the " Storie" Cup Competition. The weather was beautifully fine, with hardly a breath of wind to help either side in the choice of ends. There were between 400 and 500 persons on theground, and the colors of both teams were lavishly displayed, there being hardly a spectator without an evidence in the way of ribbon, as to which way his sympathies tended. Qaeen-street from early morning up to noon was busy with. barrackers, who played the game over, as man to meao, pointing out the supremacy of his particular club as against the fancy of the other. Several real "'dead birds" were displayed re splendant with the colors of the team with which the decorative artist sym pathised, and flags of both teams were displayed in windows 'and elsewhere. In fact, this particular Wednesday should be christened, and the date commemorated for all time, as ...

OUIDA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
OUIDA. Ouida is almost penniless. Despite the stupendous stuns of money she has drawn by her books during the past fifty years, she has got through it all, and now her house and all her property in Italy have been sold to pay her debts. Everybody in Florence knows her by sight. She is small; with a seanied and wrinkled face, overhung with greoy'ringlets,' and is affiected with a distinctly bad temper. Her grandfather was a Frenchman, but her mother was English, and she was born at Bury St. Edmunds, in Suffolk. She took her ' nom de plume': of Ouida from the childish pronunciation of her real name, Louisa, by her little niece. " THE B ORLD ? ENT VERY WELLT THEN" is the title adopted by Mr, Walter Beasant.for one of his novels. Many people besides the famous English writer imagines that our vaunted progress is a mistake, and that the world went better before the days of railways and the electric telegraph. Young people now-a. days are apt to dispise the things which were formerly thou...

SUICIDE AT DROUIN. MR. C. W. MILES SHOOTS HIMSELF [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
SUICIDE AT DROUIN. MR. C. W. MILES SHOOTS HIMSELF The residents of Drouin were shocked yesterday afternoon on learning that Mr. C. W. Miles, auctioneer, had committed suicide. The deceased had been missing since Wednesday, and a search had been made in the surrouniding bush without success until about three o'clock yesterday afternoon, when the body was found in the scrub at the rear of deceased's residence with a gunshot wound in the head. Deceased was one of the smartest auctioneers in the district, and on Saturday last conducted their Buln Buln sale for Messrs. Hamilton and Co. in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Groom. He was also gifted in other respects, and was undoubtedly one of the best known characters in the Drouin district. In his earlier years he was a teacher at the Church of England Grammar School, Melbourne, and was subsequently a partner in the firm of Miles and Barry, auctioneers, Melbourne. He was always to the front in the organising of local entertainments for cha...
