MINING INTELLIGENCE A NOVEL DIRECTORS' REPORT. A QUINTETTE OF HUMORISTS. 1960 OZ. FROM 259 TONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
MINING INTELLIGENCE A NOVEL DIRECTORS' REPORT. A QUINTETTE OF HUMORISTS. 1960 OZ. FROM 259 TONS. (BY Crcesus.) In April, 1897, the directors of the No. 1 North Oriental and Glanmire Gold Mining Company propared their first half-yearly report. And it must be said, a remarkable document it is-a novelty of its class, being quite free from the excuses and promises of which similar reports are compounded. Under the circumstances explained below, the directors must have re ,.trued the report a a " capital joke" in more senses than one. The beauty of the joke i.i that the authors of it can now afford to laugh at it, and enjoy it thoroughly. And surely it will be admitted that there must be something strikingly good in a joke which will stand repetition_ eighteen months after its origination, with its points of appreciation in;tensiiie'd rather than ininimnised. The report reads as follows in the Sydney Daily I clraYlpi of August 31st : No. 1 NORTH ORIENTAL AND GL.NMIIIIE G.M. Co., LTD. SIl...

SQUIRE JtOHN; OR FOR LOVE OF A BONNIE SCOTCH LASSIE. BY ST. GEORGE RATHBORNE, Author of "Under Egyptian Skies," "Miss Pauline of New York," etc. CHAPTER VIII.-(Continued.) If Jack was astonished before, it is as .othing to his sensation when he dis covers his surroundings as the moon creeps forth. Gleaming white stones are on the right and left, tall monuments- rear them ideves above, while close by .he can see all manner of singular vaults in the ter races, somne of them guarded by iron rail ings in front. Really Jack can be excused for stag gering to his feet with a low cry bub bllng from his lips. The bravest of men might feel a commingling of awe and [alarm under- similar circumstances. It is not a very pleasant sensation for one to open his eyes and suddenly dis cover himself lying in the city of the dead. Fortunately Jack's nerve is equal. to eiven this, and he pulls himself together as he endeavors to figure how he comes to be in the Necropolis of Glasgow be fore his time. Wh...

MY FOREIGN FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
MY FOREIGN FRIEND. Have you ever suffered from an at tack of "foreign friendshipl"- Have you ever in a monlent of weakness. or in ignorance of what would happen In the more or less inmmiinent future, ex changed cards with a native of soneic foreign port in which luck or fate had found you' Perhaps you have. Perhaps months or even years there after you have been pounced upon by your forgotten Foreign Friend, and have had to bear the yoke manfully, as I had to do. If so. then you will men tally shake hands with me and say, "Bravely borne, sir." or "i;ear up, man; it might be worse." And so it might. My visitation from abroad might have come from Asia in the form cholera, instead of from the Black Forest in the present shape of Karl Bronner. Karl was esteemed a great man, a man to be conciliated, flattered, listened to. and provided with free drinks by the humbler folk of his native Unterberg, in the Black Forest aforesaid.

THE UNLUCKY PRESENT [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE UNLUCKY PRESEN 7 An old gentleman, a merchant in Bush lane, had an only daughter, possessed of the highest attractions-moral, personal, and pecuniary She was engaged and devotedly attached to a young man in her own rank of life, one in every respect well worthy of her choice. All prelimin aries were arranged, and the marriage, after two or three postponements, was fixed, "positively for the last time of mar rying," to take place on Thursday, 15th April. 1S-. On the preceding Monday the bride groom-elect (who was to have received L10,000 down on his wedding day and a further sum of L30,000 on his father-in law dying, as there was hope he soon would) had some little jealous squab bling with his intended at an evening party. The "tiff" arose in consequence of his paying more attention than was thought justifiable to a young lady with sparkling eyes and inimitable ringlets. The gentleman retorted and spoke slight ingly of a certain cousin, whose waist coat was the admiration of the ...

On August 12 (reports a London paper) a young man, named Livio Cibrario, be longing toone of the most ancient fami lies of Turin, while attempting to climb the pek~A'of occinlmelone, in the Mari time Alps. lost his way, and on the fol lowing morning a sea:lrch party found his body, terribly crushed and bruised, at the Ib. -.. of a deep crevasse. 9punnt Cibrario, t. nfortunate young man's father, who ,las at Turin, and knew nothing of his son's expedition to the Rocelamelone, on the night of the acci dent aroused the rest of the family, an nouncing with tears that Livio was dead. He had seen him distinctly, he said, blood flowing from his battered. head, and had heard these words spo ken in a voice of terrible anguish. : "Father, I sUpped down a precipice, and broke my head, and I am dead, quite dead." The other members of the family tried in vain to persuade the poor count that the ghastly vision was noth ing but a nightmare, and the bereaved father continued in a state of anxiety b...
DISTRICT NEWS. JINDIVICK. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS) JINDIVICK. The season so far is a splendid one. There is abundance of grass in every direction, so that the farmer can rejoice and be glad once more. Crops are all doing well. A youth named George Clarke, son of Mr. Richard Clarke, met with an accident at the local creamery on Thursday, while taking the skim milk. It appears that the horse attached to the vehicle started to go, which caused the lad to fall over the tail-board, and his leg caught on seine sharp projection, which in flicted a rather nasty gash. The lad was attended to by Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Holt, and then driven to Drouin, where the cut was attended to by Dr. Cowen. Mr. J. Mapleson, who recently under went an operation in the Melbourne Hos pital, is recovering. Mapleson's sawmill has started work again after a spell of eight or nine weeks. The teams look all the better for their rest. The creamery is putting through nearly 300 gallons of milk per day. The com pany is also colle...

BRITAIN'S NATIONAL GIFTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
BRITAIN'S NATIONAL GIFTS. The British character is naturally libe ral, and when any citizen does his coun try a service he receives a generous re ward. Some time ago a great general got the splendid sum of L20,000 fur his share in building up the Empire. But, though this s? enls a large sum, it is nothing to what we have given to for metr great men. King George 1.. in the first year of his reign, made a gift of LT20 a year to the Duke of Schonmberg and his heirs for ever. That was just 1S4 years ago. so that we hav- given the Schoniberg family L132.4S0. To Lord Rtodney and everyone who shall inherit the title Georg'e Ill. gave L2O00 a year in 178T. Since that date the receipts of the family have been L19S,00. ?earl ";-elson was given L.5009) a year in 15)06, and all of the title will receive the same sum as long as; the Brit;sh tax epayer cain give it. Up to date the cum given is equal to IAt0.G30. In the fiftieth year of iGeorg?? the Third's reign. the Duke of Vellingt6n was given ...
TOMMY AND HIS SECOND BLANKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
TO:`MMY AND I-!S SEO iND BLANKET. As thy' A 'merican troops have dis covered, war ia not altogether a picnic; and it is only right and proper that a sham war should show some of the hard ships of the real article. But even so, "*Tonmmy's" health ought to be con sidered when autumn inunoeuvres are in progress, and there seems to be one de feet in the regulations at present that might easily be remedied. "I have talked with Tommy on the general subject of his Innumerable grievances." says the "Morning Leader" correspondent at Wareham Camp. "and huve found him monotonously blasphem ous over the- whole lot of them. The great blanket question is just now en gaging Tommy's best efforts. Each man is served out with one blanket, and when the chillearly morningwindsssw-,eep over these wide plains-why. that blanket's occupation is gone. The men sleep twelve in a: tent, radiating from the tent-pole like the spokes of a wheel. They huddle together for warmth, but at three or four in the morning...
AGNOSTICISM AND HONESTY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
AGNOSTICISM AND HONESTY, .I-r Dlathwa?yt contributes to "Great Thoughts" an interesting talk with Pro fessor Goldwin Smith. The Professor's recent book, "Guesses at the Riddle of Existence." was mentioned: "My book is, of course, agnostic," says he, "for I consider there is no use in clinging to the untenable or in shutting our eyes to that which cannot be honestly denied. .. . Nothing will persuade me that uncompromisng allegi ance to the truth will endanger our hope of salvation. Therefore the spirit in which this book is penned is that of free and hopeful inquiry, and I feel strongly that to resign untcnable arguments for a belief is not necessarily to resign the belief itself; all that I want to secure is fresh evidence of truth, and if we seek truth the Supreme Being will enable us in due time to discover it." What the Professor calls "the day of figments in theology" has, according to him, passed away. "'I cannot, for the life of me," Professor Goldwin Smith went on to say, "u...

HUNTING FOR A HOME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
HUNTINC FOR A HOME. The Young-Husbands were anxious to go to housekeeping. Doubtless, the cognomen would stand for a large num ber of recently married young people who have grown weary of boarding. The Young-HIusbands had friends by the name of Oldboy. Ned and Fanny Oldboy had been in the blissful state of matrimony about three years, and had made a start. Being in the happy pos session of an opportunity to get out of town for the summer, they had loaned their house to the Young-Husbands for the season. The summer, in spite of the heat. had proven delightful. The mysterious ice box was always yielding up a dainty little supper to Charlie when he came home at night. Then there had been two or three little dinners for Charlie's friends, which had induced them to declare he had a jolly home and :a trump of a nife. No wonder he declared after this summer's experience that he wanted never to board again. Without : premonition of what she was going forth to do battle with.Marie tripped ou...
