The Law. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 21 June 1895
The Law. The Sale General Sessions and County Court conmenced yesterday before Judge Walsh. At the former, G. Ross and J. Williams will be charged with house breaking and larceny near Drouin. They are reputed to be hardened criminals. Alfred C. Horsley, an auctioineer and commission agent, will be presented, charged with serious embezzlement at Foster. The cases at the County Court are likely to be lengthy. In one a man named Neil Weir seeks to recover £250 from Constable WV. Arthur, of Rosedale. Weir was arrested by the constable on a charge of stealing a billiard ball, and the case at the police court was dismissed. Another case of importance is M'Innies v. the shire of Traralgon, £500 being claimed for damage to plaintiffs land. Messrs. Whelan Bros., of Bloomfield, lost four cows last week. They were killed by falling timber during the stormy weather. Two of them were in full milk and two were springers. One of them met its death in a peculiar way. It was evidently raking shelter...

Rich stone is also being raised from the London derry Consols, situated half a mile south of the Londonderry. The news of the rich discovery of alluvial near Lake Cowan was con firmed last " week. The find was made by two diggers, who have brought in 1,000oz of gold, including a slug of 175oz. The locality of the dnd is one mile south of the Cardiff Castle mine, between Lake Lefroy and Lake Cowan, and within less than 10 miles south of Coolgardie.

POULTRY AND RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 25 June 1895
POULTRY AND RABBITS. The Department of Agriculture is shipping 100 tons of game, rabbits, and poultry-comprising ducklings, chickens, and turkeys-by the s,s, Damascus, of the Aberdeen line, which sails on the 26th inst. The extent to which this business has grown will be seen by contrasting the present shipment of 100 tons, the first of the present season, with the shipment of about one ton with which the department started last season. Great care has been taken in the preparation of the shipment, which will come upon the English market in competition with English produce. The ducklings will be consigned to the Agent-General in order that the packing may be inspected on arrival, these birds being packed in absorbent paper.
NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 25 June 1895
NEERIM SOUTH. (FROM OUR OWNS CORRESPONDENT.) ---- Much inconvenience is felt by the removal of the Post-office to the rail way station. A worse season of the year could not have been selected by the department to further its scheme of retrenchment, seeing that, as a rule, the children are commissioned to fetch the mail. which means a mile extra for most of them to travel during winter. Had our State-school occupied its rightful position in the township that would undonbtedly have been the place to transfer the post-office to. It is even a question now for the residents to consider, whether it would not be more convenient to have it at the State-school, isolated as is its position for a very large majority of families are represented there, who could post and carry home the mail, with much less inconvenience than is at present felt. It would confer a great benefit on the district if some patriotic gentle man would give a site to the depart ment. ' There could then be no reason why ou...

Yes, the standard of tho Board of I Directors of the A.N.A. is to be highly t commendedlnot that they have raised an ensign of war around which soldiers t are supppsed to take their stand in time of need,. but they have unfurled the banner or philantrophy, and have shown theirldve of mankind, which should be admiired by all right-thinking people. At the lst quarterly meeting of this board it was decided to urge upon the Government the necessity for legislation to stamp out the sweating evil, and the hdusing of aged destitute persons, who are now, as the law stands, sent to gaol as vagrants, and 1 perhaps die in a fellon's cell. The noble act of the board's will 'gain many friends for the A.N.A. Whilst on the subject of the A.N.A.'s Board of Directors, they also are to urge on the Government the necessity of pressin...

LOOK [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 25 June 1895
LOOK Os Tnsm PICTURE : There was a man, who had a store, And he was wondrous wise, And as he marked his prices down, Took care to advertise. And daily people thronged that shop, And goods they bought galore; The owner gleefully exclaimed " I'll advertise some more." "There's wondrous powerin printers ink When properly applied; That it's essential to success Can never be denied." Though times were hard, and money scarce, The trade done was surprising. He chuckled gaily to himself, And kept on advertising. The business grows by leaps and bounds, He rakes the shekels in, And blesses loud the paper bold That helps him make his tin. AND oN Tns: He sat at his door at noonday, lonely, glum and sad. The flies were buzzing around him, Led by a blue-winged gad. Not a customer darkened his portal, Not a sign of business was there; But the flies kept on buzzing about the old man's hair. At last, in misery, he shouted: "Great Scottl I'mcovered with flies;" And the zephers which toyed with his wh...
