SALVATION ARMY. SELF-DENIAL WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
SALYATION ARMY. SELF-DENIAL WEEK. The annual self-denial week of the Salvation Army has just closedl. During the time of self-denial, every member of the army pledges himself or herself to abstain from anything in the nature of a luxury, or that is un necessary to the general health, and in addition, to canvass the cities, towns and villages for pecuniary aid to carry on the Army work. The local corps have evidently been doing their duty in this respect, for Capt. Lawlor informs us that they have raisedi over £25 in the Warragul and adjacent districts. The major portion of this sum has been donated in pennies, threepenny pieces and six pences, and Capt. Lawlor desires us to express his gratitude to the donors for this very substantial addition to the finances of the Army. A few weeks ago we dlrew attention to the condition of our local State schools and pspec ially the Trafalgar school, which was sub jected to severe criticism by our Trafalgar correspondent.

POULTRY POULTRY EXPERIMENTS. [?]easonable Suggestions and Notes About Leghorns and Plymouth Rocks. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
POULTRY POULTRY EXPERIMENTS. leasonable Suggestlons and Notes Aboul Leghorns and Pljmouth nocks. Haven't yon noticed that hens don't liko to stay in their rd0sting places dur ing the day? I have, lnd I don't blame 'em, says Fannie Field in Farm Poul try. I should not like to stay cooped up in a bedroom all day. I am inclined to think that the chief reason why so many late n-lting hena either keel up and dio or .else linger along and get their new suit on so slowly that they are no good asn layers until well on to ward spring is because they have no sheltered loafing place. For aweekpast I have been watching a few old Leghorn hens that are fo nearly naked they are not fit to appear befoxe folks, and al though I don't particularly admire the Leghorns as a triba 1 must say that I respect those Leghorns fcr the good they have done mid for the good sense they now display.

DEATH IN THE SADDLE. THE DANGERS OF RACEHORSE STEERING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
DEATH IN THE SADDLE THE DANGERS OF RACETIIORSE STEERING. One hears a great deal of the big fees earned by leading knights of the pig skin, but little of the terrible risks which one and all may be said to run. Seldom a year passecs without a formidable list of injuries to jockeys, and many such periods are marked by one or more fatal ties. Those who take the least interest in the "sport of kings" will retadily bring to mind the terrible death a year or two ago of a young and promising rider. named George Brown, and the equally sad fate a year later of a jockey whose horse over-powered him and ran him full tilt against a tree, resulting In instan taneous death. Tommy Loates - a many times crowned champion - has reason to re member the racing season of 159G all his life. Patched up after being lknocked pretty much out of shape in a "smaslh up," he was :t little later placed again on the sick list with a splintered leg and a wealth of minor injuries. Whoen he recovered consciousness he...

THE NEW PERSEVERANCE THE ABSCONDING MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE NEW PERSEVERANCE THE_ ABSCONDING MANAGEIR. Nothing further has been heard of the forger Whyte, who is wanted by the police for his defalcations in connec tion with the New Perseverance, Landy's Dream, and other gold mining companies. It will be remembered that Whyte, who was the legal man ager of the company, was traced as far as Horsham, and it was suspected that he had left Adelaide by the English mail boat. On her arrival at Albany, however, no trace was to be found of the absconding manager, and it is now stspected in some quarters that he is still secreted some where in the Australian colonies. Work at the mine is suspended for a time. Mr. G. W. Anderson, the acting legal manager, has had a very busy and laborious task to perform in getting in all the scrip, tracing the numbers, and ascertaining definitely which of the certificates are good, and which are bogus. In addition to this unpleasant task, he has been further harrassed by a number of irate, though innocent, holders...
THE LOCAL RAINFALL. 4 INCHES FOR OCTOBER [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE LOCAL RAINFALL. 4 INCHES FOR OCTOBER The climatic conditions throughout the local districts still remain of a character cal culated to produce a bountiful harvest. Alter nate sunshine and rain have resulted in an unprecedented growth of grass, and it is questionable whether in some instances suftli cient cattle can he obtained to cope with such an abundance of pasture. Four inches and one point was the fall for October, as regis tered by the oflicial gauge at the Warragul Post Office-a downpour which reminds one of the copious rains experienced in the early days of local history. For November, the record up to nine o'clock yesterday morning was 131 points-an inch and a quarter. This is a very satisfactory start and justities the expectation that the downfall for the present month will equal that of October.
