COSTLY SUSPICIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
COSTLY SUSPICIONS. Here is an extract from a letter that' . Cleveland man wrote, not long ago, to his wife, who was at an eastern summer resort: "You have been gone nearly two weeks now, and I have had just two letters from you. I Judge, therefore, that you. are having a splendid time. That's right. Enjoy yourself. I wish I were there with you. But that, of course, cannot be. Business is picking up won derfully, and it would be foolish, or even worse, for me to neglect it now. "By the way, my dear, you took the key to the postbox with you. Please send it back at once. I happened to see the postman yesterday, and he said there were several letters in the box for me. I can't imagine why folks should direct my letters to the house. Don't neglect to send at once." But she didn't send it. She took the first train home. She knew a thing or two concerning the way other men had .ac:ed while their wives were away, and was not disposed to be made a fool of. She didn't telegraph to him that sh...
FERNDALE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
FERNDALE. The West Tarwin Cheese Factory has started work again. With promise of a better supply of milk, this factory should prove a success, as the district is one. of the best for dairying, so far as grass is concerned. The only drawback is the distance from the railway. One good result of the fires is seen in the roads in this district, -which have been a lot better than usual this season, on account of all thnber and undergrowth being dead. The \Narracan-Shire Council has sown grass seed on all the roads about here, which will be a great im provement, as it will keep the. rubbish down. A clearing sale of cattle was held at MJr. H. Fowles' on Wednesday, but owing to most of the local people being stocked up, the sale dragged somewhat. We have had aI nice fall of rain within the last few days, with promise of more; it was badly needed.

TRAFALGAR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
TRAFALGAR.: During the last week we have had Winter nnd Summner but a very welcome rain which has done an immense amount ,g good. Grass, crops; and fruit -are now ig well, altlhugh, the high winds ,ive blown off a great quantity of the early kinds. The Education Department is at last taking steps to enlarge the school which has been a disgrace to them for months past. The Mechanics' Institute is secured for three months, and arrangements are being made to remove some suitable building thereto. Alterations will also be taking place in the teaching staff, the sewing mistress having resigned. An assistant teacher is now to be appointed. The school has being moved into a higher, class, consequent on the increased attendance. The prominent attention drawnr to this matter through the Gazelle has already borne good fruit. The milk supply at the local factory is increasing rapidly. Last Saturday's pay sheet, totalled over £700 for the four weeks ending 15thi October. Hand separ ator is near...
HORTICULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
HCRTICULTURAL, THE ORCHARD. The vine moths are making their ap pearance, and no opportunity should i lost in destroying them. It is this moth? that breeds the caterpillars that are ar destructive to our vines. If the moths have deposited their eggs, Mir Frenchi advises hand picking, or if the vines are numerous, spraying with Paris green, Illi1 to 200 gallons of water. HIelebore pow der dusted over the leaves is also a good remedy. In spraying for these caterpil lars. be careful that the liquid is forcei well up from below, as the larve are pricipally to be found upon the lowed edges of the leaves. As the eggs 'ala. laid in batches, the grower must not bd discouraged if his first efforts appear toy fail; a little perseverance will soon era dicate them. Disbudding must stil bet performed as occasion arises. The soon er this is done the better, as it prevents waste of energy. When disbudding, tid is important to make provision for re placing arms which, by continual od faulty pruning,...
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
THE CONSERVATORY AND PO' PLANTS. The syringe must be kept constantly) at work in this department of the gar den, as it is most essential to main~ji a moist, genial atmosphere. When fflMa is done, plants grow on without a check. If the atmosphere is allowed to become continually dry, the pores of the leaves are dried up, and are unable to performn their proper functions. The plants be come sickly, and are more liable to bet attacked by insect pests. Seeds on primula Japodhica, or Japanese prim rose, should now be sown in pans well drained with crocks, over which place at layer of moss. Fill the pans with well decayed leaf-mould. If this is not pro curable, use one-third peat, one-thirti dec:ayed stable manure, and one-thirdi loam and sand. The whole to be passed through a fine sieve, and thoroughly) mixed. Press the soil lightly into the pans, and make very smooth on the sur-. face. Then take the pans and place Irs a bucket of water, and allow the watert to soak through gradually fro...
THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
THE FLOWVER GARDEN. The high winds experienced during the past week have proved somewhat disas trous to plants just coming into bloom. Without rain falls, it will be necessary) to water newly-planted trees and shrubs, and, in the case of tender annuals, pro tect them from the sun and drying* winds. Verbenas. iresines, and plants od this class must be kept const:ntly down if the best results are desired. Should) mildew appear on verbenas or roses, as slight dusting of sulphur will remedy, the evil. Coleus and iresines are not nearly so generally used in the flower. borders as their merits deserve. Planted at the back of verbenas or some bright flowering plant, their dark rich foliage makes a very pleasing contrast. Lilacs, deutzias, syringas, guelder, rose, undt plants ofthis class, after flowering, should be pruned In, or have the weal shoots thinned out; and, if crowding on neighboring shrubs, they may have some of the stronger shoots cut back to a convenient point, preserving at t...
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
THE KITCHEN GARDEN. Where pickling cucumbers are re quired, "Tie Commercial" will be found a great improvement on the old gherkin.. It belongs to the white spine class, and bears fruit of a uniform size and shape, and retains Its dark green color muchl longer after being picked than anyl other variety. It sets its fruit early, and continues in bearing for a considerable time. The seed should be sown on hills in well prepared soil, and, as the plants are of a vigorous habit, the hills should not be less than 6ft. apart. "The Paris" pickling cucumber is fancied by some. The fruit is slim and tender, averaging from 5in. to 6in. in length, very crisp1 and brittle, and possesses an excellent flavor. Four feet apart is the distance to make the hills. A sowing should nowv be made of Brussels sprouts for early, winter use. This is, no doubt, one of the best vegetables in cultivation when properly grown. The soil requires to be rich and well drained. Sow the seed inr a prepared bed, and tran...
ABOUT NEURALGIA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
ABOUT NEURALGIA. An English journal recommends as a cure for neuralgia thie application of a mustard plaster, and directs that, if the pain he in the head, the plaster should bel placed in the back of the neck, and, if in the face, be laid over the elbow. The reason for the cure is said to lie in the fact that the nerves are placed under the influence of the mustard as soon as the latter begins "to bite." The remedy is one of long standing In York shIre, where it is much used and greatly valued.
SCORCHED LINEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
SCORCHED LINE~. Linen which has been scorched can, it is said, be restored by the following method:--The Juice of a large, well baked onion must be strained through muslin, mixed with a wineglassful of vinegar, an ounce of Fuller's earth, and a little thinly-cut soap, and the whole boiled until the sap be melted. When the mixture is quite cool, the linen should be thoroughly damped with it, then at once dried, and washed in the usual manner.
HEALTH HINTS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
HFEALTH HINTS It is not generally known that smok ing is apt by its action on the nerves to bring on heart disease. It is not generally known that cigare ttes are made from inferior tobacco, flavored with drugs, which are more hurtful than the tobacco itself. It is not generally known that Dr. Willard Parker, of New York. says, " Tobacco manufacturers and excessive smokers or chewers of tobacco cannot soon recover in a healthy manner from injuries or fever, and they are more apt to die in epidemics."

MISCELLANEOUS. YOUNG WOMAN, BEWARE. Be Sure You Can Support a Man Before Marrying Him. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
T1SCCELLAN OUS. -C-~--- YOUNG WOMAN, BEWARE. Be Sure You Can Support a Man Befor Marrying Eim. Breach of promise suits brought by men against women are becoming com mon. Evidently the emanoipated wom an is not doing her duty by her weaker and less capable brother. She wins his affections and then casts him off on a cold world without any visible means of support. It is not uncommon for women to be rich in their own right nowadays. Many women earn fino in comes. These self supporting women have not yet developed, along with oth er things masculine, the old, fine, man 'v s^?no .of responsibility toward the Itving and dependent. Will woman be in a:ll respects the equal of man until he o learns this lesson? In the good time coming a young wom an will consider it dishonorable to enter into a matrimonial engagement with a young man whom she has not the ability to support. Some of the half emancipat ed girls are so thoughtleis. They lure a youth on to propose, well knowing that their salar...
A DANCING MASTER'S TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
A DANCING MASTER'S TROUBLES. Like many other masters of the art of dancing, Mr. Stapleton has his troubles, The matter of teaching clumsy novices the intricacies of the mazy waltz, and eventually making desirable partners of them, is a work for which he is specially-fitted. But these troubles, if troubles they be, are not all that Mr. Stapleton has had to contend with. In recent conver sation with a gentleman who called upon him, Mr. Stapleton said : -" As ii rule I am not troubled much with sickness in any shape or form, but during the past twelve .months I had to own up to an attack of rheumatism. As you are doubtless aware, I earn my livelihood by teaching the young Australain.. how to dance, and the prospect of trouble ahead in the shape of rheumatism, you can guess natur ally alarmed me. I was determined, however, to give the enemy a big battle, and made up my mind, if medicine would do it, to drive the rheumatism vanquished from the field. My friends. and [Iami pleased to stat...

The Trolley Riders In Boston. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
The Trolley Riders In Boston. A story, bogus on the face of it, has been going the newspaper rounds tell ing how a woman boarded a Cambridge car and asked the conductor on his re turn trip to "please step into Mr. Gaf fey's drug store and tell him to go next door and ask the woman there to go over to my house and see if I put out my oil stove." This is poppycock, but a similar incident of which I am sure occurred in a Brookline car recently. The speaker was a young man, and he was asking the conductor to "go into the car stable when you get back and telephone up to my roommate to look in my other clothes and find 5 cents to pay you for my fare this trip, as I'm broke. "-Boston Budget.
Manners Over the Telephone. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 1 November 1898
Ianners Over the Telephone. "You didn't know, did you, that manners can be conveyed by wire? I can tell by each one of the people who talk to me just what his disposition is," ..says the brunette "Central, " "and how he treats his clerks and employees, or, if he is an employee, just what sort of fellow he is. The 'phone' sharpens most people's voices a little, I know, but I'm not meaning that. It is their way of talking. I don't mean, of course, that the slow man at the 'phone' is slow in his business. But I can always tell if he is a gentleman. People who would be polite to me if they saw me, " contin ues this young empress of a clerk, who knows the dignity of her personality, "are not in this reckoning. They are talking to an unknown creature, and by the way they speak to it, at the other end of the wire, I get to know what sort of people they are. "-Philadelphia Times.
