LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
LOCAL NEWS. The annual picnic in connection with St Paul's Church took place on Friday on the Public Service Cricket Ground, and passed off very success fully. There was a very large num ber of children and friends. present, and.all appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Much sympathy is felt for Mr and Mrs Martin, of Neerim South, who have just lost their daughter Alice at the age of 15 years. She had recently had an attack of the measles and as soon as she was sufficiently convales cent went away for a change to her sister at Footscray. Whilst there cer tain complications developed th'em selves and eventually proved fatal. The remains were brought to Neerim South on Friday and on Saturday were interred in the cemetery, the rev. J. HII. Angus being the officiating minister. Another change is announced in the manpgement of our contemporary, the " Warragul News." The partner ship entered into between Messrs Gill and Gaynor about three months ago has been dissolved, and on Friday la...
TRARALGON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
TRARALGON RACES. The Traralgon Race Club held their annual meeting on Friday last on the club's course some two miles from the town which of late has been naturally improved enabling the visitor to see the race from start to finish, and it is now one of the best courses in Gilipsland being also surrounded by a sheltering scrub. Fri. day's meeting was favoured with agree able weather and a large attendance of the public. The fields on the whole were good and,the running exciting. The Handicap was an easy win for Marquis but Ormonde (a Warragul horse) made the pace hot for second place. In this event Idelia ran off or the result might have been somewhat different. A noticable feature was that in every race but the last one the favourite came in first and Concertina's win proved a "skinner" for the boohkes.the public not having a penny on the horse the metalliciems thus mak ing good their looses on previous events. The " books",were not at all a creditable lot and some of the fraternit...
HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
HINTS ON ADVERTISING --t-+ Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a 'timid, scared kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the necessary ex penses of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerkic hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done at. all. If you have a good business you should- advertise, lest competitors should take advantage ofI the great lever and.outstrip you in the race. If your business is small -you should advertise, and let the public mknow where you are and what yoi have to sell, that they may come and buy. Trying to do :business without adver tising is like making faces in the dark; you may know what you, are about, but others do not. The mans who, without interruption caii keep his name bofore the public, is constantly informing possible cus 'tomers whbI he;' is, ;wheOi :hd is to be fouind,...

FARM AND DAIRY. CHECKING POTATO DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
FARM AND DAIRHY. (Dv T TIISTLEDOWN" IN TIIE " AUSTRnaA?S?x.") -0 CIiECKING POTATO DISEASE. The British Board of Agriculture have issued a continuation of a former Parliamentary paper on experiments made in checking potato disease in the United Kingdom and aborad. The report deals largely with the experi ments made with bouillie bordelaise, a composition with which the plants ard treated both preventively and cura tively, and with a large amount of success. The experiments in Britain were made under the auspices of the Royal Agricultural Society of England, the Technological Education Com mittee of the Wilts County Council, the Agricultural Department of the Irish Land Commission at the Albert Model Farm, Glasnevin, and at the Munster Agricultural School. The experiments on the Continent were conducted by various specialists. The results of the various experiments made during the past few years show that the preventive treatment has been employed with very satisfactory results in cas...
ON THE ROARING SEA. CONTINUED FROM 23RD INST. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
ON THE ROARING SEA. CONTINUED FROM 23RD LNST. passed the Fiji islands, and some large canoes put out in chase of the castaways. The launch was the swiftest and escaped, and shortly came into a streak of good lnck to offset the bad. It rained and the poor fellows hailed it with joy because they could catch some drinking water, al though they got another drenching into the bargain. Several days of storm fol lowed and the men grew wretched from sleeplessness, cold, cramp and hunger pains. Bligh was compelled to stop the daily spoonful of liquor for fear the need would be still greater. The result soon showed on the men and they begged for additional food to stave off theanguish of famine. This Bligh denied them, but as a com promise grouted an allowance of liquor on the nights that were peculiarly distressing. It is hard to see on what grounds he fixed the degrees of distress, but he tided over the crisis, and at last, on the 18th of May, the rain ceased. Bligh advised the men to wring...

SUICIDE OF A BOY. EFFECTS OF A PARENTAL RIEBUKE. --o About 3 o'clock on Sunday the Leon gatha police received intimation that a youth named Lewis Edward Ileynolds, son of a farmer living at Nerrena, and only 16 years of age, had committed sui cide by deliberately shooting himself through the the head with a gun. So tar as can be learned young Rleynolds was milking the cows when he had some words with his father. He was illusing the cows, and his father ordered him to desist, leave the place anud seek employ ment elsewhere, as he was done with him. The youth immediately proceeded to the house, obtained a double barrelled gun and went a few paces away from the dwelling. He said to his mother, "Look hereemother," and without another word raised the muizzle of the gun to his head and fired, killing himself instantaneously. The family is well and favourably knowg in the district,

ST. PAUL'S CHURCH. DEPARTURE OF MB. AND MRS. ALLNUTT. -0 PRESENTATION CEREMONY.

THE RIVAL OF THE RAILWAYS. A STRIKING ILLUSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894
THE RIVAL OF THE RAIL WAYS. A STRIrING ILLUSTRATION. -0 A striking illustration of the manner in which the road teams compete against the railways was recently afforded in the case .of the removal of a quantity of machinery to Ballarat. The Ballarat Woollen Mills purchased the plant of the Williamstown Mills, which, it will be remembered, carned the bonus of £'6000 for turning out worsted, and it will soon be all in position. It was taken from Mel. bourne to ]Ballarat by road, because the cost was about £70 cheaper than the freight of the Railway Department. The department was asked what it would carry 70 tons for, and the answer was '2 2s. or thereabouts per ton. The teamsters accepted £1 per ton. As the Railway Department could have sent the machinery in one special train, it strikes outsiders that it would have been advan tageous to have made a special bargain in this instance.
