THE CALAMITY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
THE CALAMITY MAN. There is a man-we know him well He travels east and west, Who finds it fearful work to sell His goods, though they're the best. He has a dismal, gloomy air As you could wish to see; And with the cynic's mild despar lie talks calamity, You ask him how he finds his trade, He shakes his head at first, And then declares he is afraid We have not seen the worst. Business is always dull with him, A pessimist is he; And with a smile that's deathly grim He talks calamity. Some time, when at the golden gate Of heaven he doth appear, The chances are that he will state "It's awful dull up here I"

NEERIM SOUTH. THE BIG REEF. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
NEERIM SOUTH. -0 (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) -0 Since I wrote you last our neighbor hood has been kept quite lively with visitors to the big reef, which has been pegged out for some miles each side of the original claim. Several experts have inspected the .claim and pro nounce it the best they lave seen in Gippsland, with every indication of tuining out well. Mr. John Connor to-day had the opportunity of selling his share in the claim to a Melbourne gentleman considered to be one of the best judges in the colony. Satisfactory arrangements have been made to fully test this apparently very valuable find. Operations are to commence at once on the arrival of the plant from Melbourne. Mr. Gray, lately one of the managers of the Long Tunnel, has been appointed manager and, of course, thoroughly understands his business. He intends to go down about d0ft., and take out about five tons of quartz -to give it a fair trial. Should it turn out as good as he anticipates. he cal culates the reef ...

THE BROTHER'S RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
TH.E BROTHER'S RETURN. " How does the tramp and the Michigan farmer agree ?"- asked a Free Press reporter of a seedy-looking chap who struck him for a dime at the city hall the other day. " Wall, apeakin' for the tramp, I can't say thet we hey anythin' in pertickler agin' the farmers," he sagely replied. " Pretty generous, are they 7" "Tolerably generons." " And they seem to believe your tales of woe 7" " Our tales of woe are always true and orter be believed. Jist on the spur of the minit I can't remember of hut one mean farmer in all this state, and I've travelled over most of the country. He lives near Ann Arbor and the circum stance happened two years ago. I was lyin' in a fence corner one day, and I heard some men in the field talkin' about the owner of the next farm west. His name was Johnson, and it appeared that he once had a brother Bill who ran away and hadn't bin herd of fur fifteen years. There was a heap o' talk about how glad he'd be to see Bill again, and it put an id...
USEFUL INFORMATION [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
USEFUL INFORMATION A breed of chickens with fur in place of feathers is said to be the result of a Jap anese scientist'e effort to cross the guinea with' the common' barnyard fowl. Among the Aino tribe, in Japan, a beard is considered so necessary to beauty that the women tattoo their faces to make up for their beardlessness. A French priest stationed at Jerusalem has been the fortunate finder of " a talent of the time of King David." It was un earthed in his doorway. There are several factories in India and one, at least, in'Europe, that at Meahnbeim, Germany, where butter is made from cocoanute. George Eliot wrote for eight years with the same pen, and when she lost it be wailed her misforture as almost too hard to bear. The Red Sea is so called because it is literally covered with minute red animal nule ; the water itself is of a clear, bright blue. An amount of blood equal to all that contained in the body passes through the heart once every three minutes. Sculptors contend that...
POETRY. The Sweet Old Song. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
POETRY. The Sweet Old Song. It was only a broken chord of song That sang itself, the livelong day, Over and over in my heart, SAnd always the same sweet way Always beginning low and soft, Like a tenderly spoken "Love, good. night I" And ending in glad and joyous strains, Like a morning psalm when the world is bright. And the hours of the day were woven in By the mystic thread of the haunting song. That, somewhere out ,f the vanished past, Bent forth its witchery clear and strong; Something akin to the song of birds SWhen the sky is flushed with the coming dawn, Yet sad as the thoughtful houear which comes 'When the last red light of day is doze. Beautiful echo that drifted back From the fsr.off shore of long ago, Over the wide and rugged waste, Where never the winds of gladness blow, Bringing the odor of wildwood flowers; The laughing song of the mountain rill ; The green, glad fields where the cowllps grow, And the gleam of waters calm and still. Sittitng alone in the twilight stil...
THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
THE POULTRY YARD. The hen will do much to keep herself free if you will attend to the nest and the home. A bright comb is the sign of health; if it be pale or dark the bird is out of cen dision. The great soures ef oontagion is the drinking water. A sick fowl shdold never be allowed to drink from the same vessels with the others. Watch the nest for vermin, don't make the fowls have to carry them from a neg lected nest to free herself in the 4wt bath. Now is a good time t. give the fowl house a thorough Asnlgatioi. Turn out the bircd, aloes all iacks, put on an iron plate or on an earthern floor some hot coals, and half a pound of sulphur, shut the door, and leave all closed for a few hours. Ventilate the house, give a good coat of limewash, and let in the birds, giving them, too, a dressing of sulphur. The unpleasant habit that young mothers have of insisting upon visitors kissing toe baby has resulting in a Philadelphia or ganisation called "The Ant-.Baby Kissing Society." Every we...
SPRING REPAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
SPRING REPAIRS. It pays to look the farm over before the hurry of spring work comes on, and find cut what ought to be done to keep every thing about it in good condition. If time is taken by the forelock in this matter, a great deal of the hurry and worry of spring work, as usually experienced on the farm, can be avoided, and the sundry jobs neoses ?ary to keeping things about the place in good shape cmn be done more satisfactorily, because more leisurely.
FLAVOURING THE POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
FLAVOURING THE POULTRY. Breeders who have fed fish and onions freely to their fowls have found that even the eggs have had a fishy or an oniony flavour imparted to them. There seems to be sufficient evidence for the statement that the flavour of poultry is more or less affected by the food which the fowls obtain. If this be true, then there is a good field for experiment in determining just what foods will impart the most desirable and delicate flavours to fowls. The French feeders use a great deal of buckwheat meal in fattening their poultry, believing that it not only hastens the process but that it adds to the whiteness of the meat, a quality there much sought after, and improves the flavour of the flesh. The fatteners in and about London adopt a somewhat simifar food and for similar reasons. But so far as we know, no definito experiments have been made to ascertain what foods will impart the finest flavours to fowls. It is possible that nothing better than the French method will...

GETTING A POINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
GETTING A POINTER. A long-legged young countryman, with his trousers three inches from his boots, and his boots three miles from a shine, passed into the office where marriage licenses are kept on tap, with a basket on his arm. " Good mornin'," he said to the clerk, "can I git a marriage license here P" "This is the place," said the clerk." " Well, I've got saix dozen eggs in this here basket , can I get one for them F" " Hardly, I guess." "Well, I don't know nothin' about the price of eggs nor marriage licenses, but I'm willin' to put up the eggs for the license, sight unseen." "Can't do it," inserted the clerk. "We are not in the business of trading marriage licences for eggs." "They're fresh," suggested the applicant in a half pleading tone. " 0So is the licence," argued the clerk. "What's one wpth P" asked the youth, going oa on anathe? tacp. A dbllar.'.. " What's' eggs wuth P' "Seventeen cents a dozen. Why don't you go and sell your eggs and come back here with the money " ' Th...
SPECTACLE LENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
SPECTACLE LENSES. The cutting is all performed with a tiny fragment of diamond, known in the trade as a spark. It is not every spark, however, that will cut a lens, says the American jeweller. The sparks are mounted in the following manner :-A piece of brass wire is selected, say three-sixteenths of an inch in diameter, a hole is drilled in the end large enough to admit the spark, and it is sat in the hole with the point up. The outer edge or shell of the wire is beaten inward, and holds the spark firmly in place. The wire is then placed in the lathe and cut off just back of the spark, turning the end hemi. spherically, using the point of the spark that sticks through the brass as a centre. A piece of steel wire is next selected, of the same diameter as the brass wire, and the end is turned in, forming a cup. The mounted spark is then soft-soldered into this cup, and it is ready for the machine, which works automatically from a pattern, and can be set to cut larger or smaller than t...
PRESERVING THE GRAIN OF BUTIER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
PRESERVING THE GRAIN OF BUTIER. There is no part of the process involved in making an extra quality of butter that is of equal importance with properly work ing it. That the buttermilk and water must be taken out of it and the salt put into it, are matters of necessity, and the man who can invent some cheap method by which this can be done without work ing the butter will be the dairyman's benefactor. To make fine butter we must retain the grain in it, while all working, mueh or little, tends to destroy this grain. The modern plan of working butter is to do away with working it as much as pos sible, and do that little as lightly as can be, and at the same time expel all the milk and water and introduce the salt. To do this, stop the churn when the butter granules are very fine, draw the butter milk, and introduce water at a tempera ture near 55 degrees Fahr., which hardens the butter, and when the water runs clear introduce the salt, mixing it well with the hard granules of butter i...
FARM AND GARDEN. THE FARM HORSE AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
FARM AND GARDEN. THE FRBM HOBSE AT WOBR. After a season of comparative rest and idleness during the winter, the farm horse should be brought gradually into full work in the spring. Do not put the horses at a hard day's ploughing at first, but rather let them do lighter work for the first few days. Their shoulders will need watching, to see that the collars fit well, that they do not gall. Loose collars are the most frequent cause of sore shoulders. Sponge the shoulders night and morning with a strong decoction of white oak bark until they get hardened. Many farmers think it too much trouble to remove the collars at noon, but I think it would well repay the trouble in added comfort to the horse. It is like taking of your hat when you come in at noon, tired and heated by year work. Removing the collars at noon while the horses are eating gives the shoulders a chance to become cool. When a gall does come, bathe it at least three times a day with cold water. If possible, let the animal ...
TWO STORIES AND A MORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
TWO STOIEES AND A MO?AL. There was a boy who was sent out by his father to sell some potatoes. He carried the bag around all day without a sale, and on reaching home at night, threw it down with the surly exolamation: "Nobady that I met asked me fr potatoes. One fellow wanted to know what Trhd in my bag, and4 told him it was none of his darned business." There was, in the same town, a colored gentleman who went about bawling at the top of his voice: "Fish I FishI ishh Fresh fsh!" '! Shiit up that racket !" said an angry d4me at I window, ' You hea me. missy P" "'Hear you I You can be heard a mile ,Dat's what I'se hollerin' for. Faksh! Fish ! Fresh ih l" The colored gentleman was an advertiser -and sold his goods. Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artioial poverty,
The New Onion Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
Thae lw Onion Culture. The departniro in the.eultivation of the all important onion, designated as the new onion culture, consists in the trans planting of the young plants, which was formerly considered impracticable. This transplantation of the young plants has a tnofold object-namely, increasing thb yield and securing an earlier crop. This "departure, it is believed by those who have investigated the subject, promises good results wherever intensive cultiva tion is practiced. The new onion culture .was prominently brought-into public no tice by the horticulturist of the Ohio ex periment station in a bulletin issued in 1800. A little later T. Greiner, of New York, issued a manual on thesu~bject.
Potato Experiments. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 8 June 1894
Potato Experiments. Results gained from experiments with Irish potatoes at.the Louisiana station and reported on by J. G. Lee give some interesting conclusions. In an expe§i ment to test size of seed seven varieties of largo and medium sized potatoes were used for seed, being planted whole and cut to two or more eyes and to one eye. The results for each variety from one l3ind of seed are tabulated. "The pro ductive results obtained concur with those of previous years; the larger the seed planted the greater the yield. The economical results are, however, differ ent, and calculating for this point sug gest that, planting on a large acale, it is better to cut not to more than four eyes nor less than two."
