A LONG LOST BROTHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
A LONG LOST BROTHER. A great number of people in distant lands are constantly sending inquiries to Melbourne for long-lost relations, and the General Post Office is often made the recipient of some curious epistles. The following, which is one of the latest samples received, has, however, put tip the record in the cacographic line. The writer hails from the United States, and is evidently rather proud of his achieve ment: "Baltimore, M.D., May, the 11th. 1898.

AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE SYSTEM [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE SYSTEM An automatic telephone system, which does away with the necessity for the staff of skilled operaltors at present required at exchanges, is being intro duced into this country from the United States by the Direct Telephone Ex change Syndicate. Instead of ringing up the central station, requesting the attendant to put him in communication with the person to whom he wishes to speak.. and waiting while the required alterations are made on the switch board, the subscriber to an exchange worked on the automatic plan is him self able to connect his telephone with that of any other subscriber without the intervention of a third person. Each subscriber has upon the front of his in strument a circular disc pivoted at the centre, and having one half of its cir cumference inscribed with figures from 0 to 9. If he wishes to communicate with another, he sets the disc so that the number of the other subscriber ap pears upon the dial, and he then finds his telephone in ci...

LIFE IS ONWARD. Life is onward--ue it With a forward aim; Toil is heavenly-choose it. And its warfare claim.

Life is onward-heed It, In each varied dress; Your own act can speed it On to happiness. His bright pinion o'er you, Time waves not in vain, If -lope chants before you Iler prophetic strain. i.iie is onward-prize it In sunshine and in storm; Oh! do not despise it In its humblest form. Hope and joy together, Standing at the goal. Through life's darkest weather, Beckon on the soul! --"Househbld Words."
COMPENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
' COMPENSATION All is not joy, though half the world is singing; All is not sorrow, though the heart be and; To each and one the tender years are bringing Some dear remembrance that will make us glad! Some chord of music long ago forsaken, Some thought of happy friendship, passed away The sweet, familiar face re-awaken, The years roll back and bring their yester day! Dream on! fond heart, the future holds no blessing Dearer than that which dwells within the past! Dream on! fond heart., the happy years con fessing, Live and be loved! while life itself shall last. All is not pain! there dawns a day of laughter; All is not laughter for the shadows come; Each mood of mirth breaks into sorrow alter Not one, but many voices call us home. Some thought of old, from Heaven's gates re turning, Some breath Divine from borderlands above. lBrings back the past, with all its tender learn. ing, Thrills once again the Broken Harp of Love. Dream on! fond heart, the future holds no blessing Dearer th...

The West Gippsland Gazette. WARRAGUL JULY 12, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
AIIRRAGUL JULY 12, 180S. The Victorian Govern A ment has . again pro PROGRESSIVE 1uised the country that POLICY. it intends to introduce " a progressi-ve policy of public works." This is a very fine sounding phrase, and would be well calculated to raise the drooping spirits of a despondent community, were it not for the fact that it has become so familiar, that it fails to produce the desired effect. For years past the policy of the Government has been of the stand-still order. This has in a measure been inevitable, and is doubtless due to the fact that we had previously gone at the " double" to such an extent that it was necessary for the Treasurer to cry "mark-time." There is such a thing, however, as marking time too long,- and now that Sir George Turner has more than balanced the national ledger, he may reasonably be expected to give the order to march forward. The develop ment of the country cannot possibly be achieved. without the expenditure of national money. And no part of ...

We are compelled to hold over a de tailed report of the proceedings till next issue.

DISTPfCT NEWS. -4-e-- (Fro?i VAiUOiS CORRESPONDENTS). fNEERIfM, A TRIP THROUGH THE DISTRICT. This part of the district. presents at the present season- a wonderful diver sity-that is ti say,: it is getting en larged by various changes in the ap pearance of the country now to. what it was a fe? imonths back. The country now displays attractions in its magnificent soil,'just newly turned up in preparation for the coming season's crop, which, if all goes well, will still add another grand feature in its agricultural wealth, and I venture to predict that, ere long, Neerim Will be in a position to prove its advantages :which will establish a history of general interest to many farmers over other districts. Having travelled over the country on the north and north-east of Neerin proper. as far as Matlock, and the west branch of the Tangil River, I am in a position to say that there is a big future before the Neerim district. I make this assertion from certain matters that were brought unde...
HANNAH PURVES' FIRST AND ONLY LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
HANNAH PURVES FIRST AND ONLY LOVE. BY NELLIE BROWN. The hill road was very lonely. SIt stretched, white as chalk, between the unfenced moorland for miles, broken here and there by a rough group of Whins, or diving into a belt of firs, set as close as bristles in a brush, and af fording no glimpse of even the n honday sun to the scantily-mossed ground nnderneath. The great bare hills of the Laonmermoors succeeded each other, ith the samne swell of green he-ther, coarse rtss, and black whins as far as the ey-e could reach. Hannah Purves C?ome to her door to :shake the cover of the dresser. She ?vs- tidying the best roon-she did not weary of dusting it over and over--i was occupation, She was a rather plain woman, and sallow, and her hair dr?essed in an oId-fashloned way added -give apparent iears to her age.

THE COWBOY AT HOME. HIS POINTS, GOOD AND BAD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
THE COWBOY AT HOME. 11IS POINTS, GOOD AND ?BAD. BY R.W. The cowboy has suddenly become a subject of considerable interest owln·o to Colonel Theodore Roosevelt's irregu lar corps having taken a prominent part in what may be described as the first real engagement between the Spanish and American land forces in Cuba.. It is scarcely fair to label the Roosevelt Irregulars as a cowboy corps, for It has beeLn clearly demonstrated to be com posed of very mixed elements. "'The Colonel" has been West, and seen life there, and so presumab)ly have some of the Eastern State.s members of .hs regiment, yet they are not, strictly speaking, cowboys, and we have the Harvard and Yale undergraduates, who can ride, forming a small proportion of the quaint conglomeration. GOOD AT YELLING. Taking it "by and large," as mari ners say, the "Roosevelt Rangers" should be an awe Inspiring corps, for they should beat all creation at "yel ling" in a crisis. Imagine the blood curdling whoops of the Western cow bo...
SPAYING MILK COWS. IMPORTANT TO DAIRY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
SBPAYINGC MILK COWS. IMPORTANT TO DAIRY FARMERS. At a recent meeting of the National Society of Agriculture of France, -M. Chauveau presented a report, made Iby 31. Flocard, of Geneva-, on the spaying of dairy cows. According to notes in the "Journal d'Agriculture Pratique," 31. Flocard is one of the veteranarians who have performed this operation the greatest number of times, and hit report is regarded as a most valuable one. Tihe economic advantages from the spaying of cows which the fa.r.mer will derive is great. and merits attention. From 187S to 189SS I. Flocard operated on 1950 auul mals, and thte loss by death in conse quence was only one-half per cent. Af tri that time he adopted the discoveries of Pasteur with respect to selptics and antisepties. and in the perfornanee of 2505 operations from 188S to 1897 he had not had one fatal case. From a surgical point of view, spaying, or ovariotomny, is an operation without danger in the hands of a. clever and experienced vet erinary...
AMERICA AND GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
AMERICA AND GREAT BRITAIN. Here are some recent newspaper com ments upon the subject of the relations between Great Britain and the United States: The Washington correspondent of the "Daily Mall" says:-"The friendly atti tude of the British Government towards the United States in the present crisis, as well as the friendly utterances of the English newspapers,is cordially appreci ated by every intelligent American, and meets with enthusiastic approval from the American press. "The "New York Tribune," comment ing on the declaration of the " Specta tor" that if America were really attack ed by any Continental coalition England would be at her side in twenty-four hours, says: 'That is beyond question the exact truth, and it is realised and duly appreciated by this nation, and we are inclined to think by all whom it may concern. There is little reason to look for such a crisis, but if it should ever come to Athanasius contra mun dum, the Anglo-Saxon Athanasius would not shrink from the ...
PIGEON ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
- PIGEON ENGLISH. MIr E. 1Wilson. Dobbs contributes the following: Re the interesting remarks on above by the three travelling cyclists in China. Dr Brewer's homely derivation of the word is thus evolved-Business, Bidgi ness,Bidgin,Pidgin, Pigeon. Another ver sion is Business (word constantly used by early traders) contracted into Busin, then changed to Pishen, afterwards to Pidgin,which, being pronounced like oure word "pigeon," became so spelt eventu ally. This strange admixture of Eng glish. Chinese and Portuguese yclept Pigeon English, is as curious in its forms of expression as that allied monstrosity, Blaboo-English. The latter being an Anglo-Tldian product-i.e., a mixture of I nglish and Hindustani words-as the form'r is a peculiar developrhent of Anglo-Chinese, etc. The great ditliculty the Chinese experience in using the let ter "r" is an especial feature of this mon grel lingo. They pronounce it almost always like "1," as "loom" for "room," and "cly" for "cry." And for the...

THE REASONABLE DOCTRINE OF THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. "Even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.—Ephesians, 4, 32. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
THE REASONABLE DOCTRINE OF TI- E FORGIVENESS OF SINS. By the Rv. 'JOHN rWATSON, D.D. ("Ian Maclaren"). "Even as God for Christ's sake hath for given you.-Ephesians, 4, 32. Every mind now is open to the excel lent glory of the Bible. It is a good thing to appreciate a good book, and the best thing to appreciate the best book. But the nian who understands the Bible better than any other, and. i who perhaps alone has tasted its inner sweetness, is the penitent. 1. It is .-N ALTOGETHER REASONABLE THING FOR A MAN- yes, for an able-bodied:;, full-grown; clever man-to'seek the forgivenress of his sins. There are very few people that have not faced this problem, and desired beyond all things to hear the 1 mystical voice that looses the shameful bonds of the past, and sends a man with his face towards the light, the past buried behind him, into the best of all liberties, the liberty of holiness. A man may not have the sense of sin that you read about in books. Religious books are so stereoty...
