SCHOOLBOY REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
SOHOZLBOY REPLIS. An inspector in the "Schoolmistress," gives some humorous replies he has just received from schoolboys whom he has been examining in geography. "What is the European Concert?" was one ques tion; and here are some of the an swers: "The European Concert is the na:ne given to Germany because so many mu sical instruments are made there. and the Germans are a music loving people." "The European Concert is a kind of unwritten law by which all the Powers of Europe try to play off one against the other, thus preventing any one nation getting too much power. It very much resembles the 'balance of power.' " "The European Concert is the name given to the attempts of the principal countries of Europe to obtain some par'. of China. China is called the sinc man of the East, and the countries which make up the Concert of Europe tre represented as piping him."
No Title [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
Sin,-I am glad your readers are interested in the Labor Exchange. One passage in "New Convert's" letter, published in your last issue, gives subject for serious thought : " 1 had it always set down that life in this world was meant to be a fight for money." As the world stands now, a person stands a poor chance of living if he does not fight for money, and fight so hard that it leaves little time for deep thought upon more important subjects. But I feel sure this was not meant to be." I heard it remarked a few days ago " That our present monetary system seemed to do a great deal towards strangling Christianity, and how much nobler a life man could lead if he had not to be always striving and struggling with his brother man, each trying to get the better of the other." This is our present position. The Labor Ex change promises to alter it. A leaflet froml the Labor Exchange Depository, Kansas, America, reads:-" The Labor Exchange is a national organisation, incorporated under the law...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE NEW ECONOMICS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
CORRESPONDENCE. THE NEW ECONOMICS. TO THE EDITOR Sm,-In a recent issue of the Gazettre under the heading 'of "The New Economics," you mention the Labor Exchange Associations of America, speaking favorably of them. I have been anxiously scanning your columns since, in the hopes of getting some information on the subject ; for if all I hear is correct, it is a solution of all social difficulties. The paragraph re ferred to promises "the most stu pendous consequences to the pro ducer." That is good; it is high time they took their stand instead of spending their strength of body and brain merely to increase the hoard of the capitalist. I have been told that the Labor Exchange, by a peculiar system, cancels its paper money, doing away with the possibility of hoarding; that wealth will be more equally divided amongst those who earn it; that it will bring about such a state of affairs that it will be the drones' turn to starve, instead of the workers, as heretofore. I have also been told ...
IN THE BASTILLE. IN THOSE OLD DAYS. THE GUESTS OF THE KING HAD A VERY NICE TIME. THE DUNGEON MENU. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
IN THE BASTILLE. . IN THOSE OLD DAYS. 'THE GUESTS OF THE RING HAD A VERY NICE TIME. THE DUNGEON MENU. An enforced stay in the most splendid palace would prove an infliction to any free-born, ambitious child of man; com pulsory well-being jars as acutely upon our senses as helpless misery. To be here to-day and gone to-morrow is for the adventu'ous the true secret of hap piness, and a genuine suffering is inflict ed by the assurance that you could not, if you would, leave a comfortable lib rary for the doubtful pleasures of the town'", There was, then, a definite hard ship imposed upon those who sojourned in the Bastille-a restricted movement, an 'ominous certainty of inaction, for which not even the best society :dud the oldest wine could totally atone. But, apart from the necessary restriction, a stay in the famous prison of Paris was little more than an agreeable diversion. It seemed, indeed, as though the King 'were on his mettle. His greatest :onx iety was for the comfort of "my...
MR. G. HOLLIER'S DAIRY FARM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
MR. G. HOLLIER'S DAIRY FARM. TO THE EDITOR. Sm,-Messrs. Potts and Crowe's statement in your last issue re the above will scarcely stand close scrutiny. What they state as the total amount received for milk is mis leading. It should have been for cream, for the Trafalgar Butter Fac tory Company does not buy skim milk; it is returned to the suppliers. And they give Mr. Hollier no credit for the skim milk-788½ gallons at -d per gallon, £1 12s Old-which, added to £18 Os lid for cream, makes a total of £14 18s 9-d per cow. Another mistake is made in saying the milk was sent to the Trafalgar factory, for it is well known that it was sent to the local creamery, where Mr Hollier's son is manager.-Yours, etc., GLORIOUS.
THE EMPIRE BALL. A BRILLIANT SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
THE EMPIRE BALL. A BRILLIANT SUCCESS. The series of Empire socials which have been so successfully conducted during the past year were brought to a termination on Wednesday last, when a grand ball was given in the Public Hall, Warragul. The socials have become so popular, and have been so well patronised during the winter season, that a record attendance was practically assured as soon as the announcement of the% ball was made public in our columns. Not withstanding the threatening condi tion of the weather, lovers of the dance flocked in from far and near, quite a small contingent coming from the distant "suburb" of Sea View. Although the weather outside was boisterous and miserable, the interior of the hall was the very opposite. With the aid of fern fronds, fairy lamps, and flags of all nations, Messrs. David Small and J. M. Steedman (secretary) succeeded in converting the otherwise barn-like building. into a very picturesque and attractive ball-room. Festoons of flags were suspe...

L. Smith. He, how ever, retired, and left the field to Messrs. Smit...
AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S BAZAAR. WORK OF THE LADIES' COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S BAZAAR. WORK OF THE LADIES' COM MITTEE. The Ladies' Committea of the War ragul Agricultural Society's Bazaar, are busily engaged with the manufac tura of innumerable garments of every description, which are intended to furnish the shelves of the fancy and other stalls. Promises of contributions in money and kind, continue to come in freely, and several of the ladies are still actively canvassing the district. Most of our local store-keepers have already contributed generously in response to the earnest solicitations of the ladies. Indeed, it is difficult to conceive any other result. Nothing appeals so powerfully to the generous feelings of the sterner sex, as the winning words and seductive smiles of the fair sex, when applied to the prosecution of a good work. There is now only one clear month in which to make all the necessary preparations essential to the success of the bazaar, and while thanking those who have already responded so generously, the Ladies' ...
