DEAD, YET LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
DEAD, YET LIVING. I see the empty cradlh, And sad tears dim my eyes : Cold, in the lonely churchyard, .My baby's body lies. Mly heart is sore with yearning, I miss the pattering foet. The clinging arms, and guileless smiles, That made life seem so sweet; And though the earth is fair to see, The sunniest day is dark to me. Then softly through the darkness, A light gleamns pure and fair, Hier precious soul is living, Safe in the Father's rare. Gone from the world untarnished, Far from life's weary care From blighting doubts and tempters' wiles, And agonised despair. And. becloning to the Better Land, I see a tiny baby hand. Lizzie Gibson. -"Newcastle Weekly Chriaocle." a
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. Large plants of Allamandas in pots will soon be flowering freely. To keep them growing place a good layer of man-. ure on the surface, and give liquid man .ure every time they need watering. Re: pot all young plants, and grow them well exposed to the light. Allamnandas do well in loam, one seventh of manure and sand. Just as the plants commence to flower, harden them off and place in a) cooler house, when their period of flower ing will be greatly extended. Clerio dendron Balfourianum will soon help to make a show in the conservatory. Wheni developed under cool conditions the flow ers are much firmer. Keep plants of Stephanotis floribunda growing by means of weak stimulants. So long as the plants are kept growing they will con tinue flowering, provided they are freely) exposed to the light. Syringe frequent ly to keep the plants clean,. Some at tention is needed td train the shoots as they extend, or they soon became en tangled and give endless troub...
HGRTICULTURAL. THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
HCRTICULTURAL THE ORCHARD. At the present time, after due atten tion has been given to newly planted fruit trees, the strawberry crop is the most important, and it well repays for' being done at this stage before there are many symptoms of coloring apparent. The very earliest crop in warm situa tions may not require any watering at all, as the most important factor in this case is to obtain an early pick as soon as possible, the question of size being a se condary consideration. If the water ing of strawberry crops is not done, as it were, in anticipation of distress, theia will be probably a check to the swellfng of the fruit,whichoftentimes causes tln s to harden, after which it is dimicul r t restart them. The watering should be always thoroughly done. The use of liquid manure either from the farm yard or stable, is not advisable at this stage, as it has a tendency to act pre judicially upon the flavor. If anything is really needer, as in the case of a very, heavy crop, a quick a...

HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
HEALTH HINTS. Tlhoever drinks tea let them do it in moderation. Do not take it between meals or on an empty stomach. Allow it to form a part of the regular meal. Make the infusion by steeping-never by boiling. Those who are troubled by in somnia should not use it in any form. Brain workers cannot afford to over work on the stimulus of strong tea. The poor and scantily fed cannot afford to touch it. To dyspeptics we say, ten aggravates you. and many caseas are cured by disusing it. Persons troubled with constipation should not use it, either weak or strong.
USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
USEFUL HINTS. Before returning a muff to its box, twirl it, to straighten every hair. Suds should be prepared for the whole process before wetting ilannels for wash ing. To stiffen crape hold it over potatnes or rice while boiling, and let it dry by the fire. TWhen sewing on a linen button it looks neat to stitch a little ring round the middle. To remove fruit stains from linen, pour boiling water through the stained part before the article is wet for washing. The art of carving a turkey or goose consists in cutting as many slices as pos sible from them without cutting up the carcass. Hooks and eyes must always be sewn far enough Iback to bring the end to where the fastening is to be, or they will widen the part and also be seen. To Clean Buff Leather. - Spread out the article to be cleaned, and carefully note the soiled spots before commencing, so that, though you go lightly over the whole surface, you give special atten tion to these.

THE CHOIR LISTENED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE CHOIR LISTENED. "There is no doubt that Dr Fourthly is a powerful preacher. Have you ever heard him?" "'No, I have never had the opportunity to do so as yet." "You ought to come around some time, by all means. I know you'd be impressed. WVhy. upon several occasions I have noticed even the members of the choir listening to him."
THE ONLY GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE ONLY GIRL. "I took out a living picture show once," said a theatrical manager, quoted by the "Chicago Journal," ''and I had several queer experiences. We always had trouble getting suitable music, for one thing. I remember that we struck a cer tain town where the music whs furnished by a seedy, freckled faced young man, who officiated at one of those bangety bang pianos. I asked him if he could think of music suitable to each picture as it was displayed. 'Oh, yes,' certainly he could, 'and do it impromptu.' The per formance opened. He was seated at the piano, and he turned to look at the first picture. It was 'Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.' He didn't hesitate an instant. Like a flash he turned and be gan pounding out. 'There's only one girl in this world for me.' " Farmer Honk: Your nephew that went to college has kinder got cured of his retlrin' disposition, ain't he ? Farmer Greyneck : Waal, he Is at least cured of all dispo sition to retire at a reasonable hour at night...
DARNUM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
DARNUM. It is about time that the police author ities paid a little attention to this part of the district as there a number of larrikins whose chief ambition seems to be to annoy poor old folk, also destroying public prop erty. There also seems to be a good deal of thieving going on-from fowl-stealing to house-brealing. Seveyal of the residents have had to suffer from the former. A few days ago, Mfr. W. Davies, who had been at the church social found, on re turning, that someone had entered his house through the window and stolen ll from a drawer in his bed-room. It is to be hoped the police will catch the culprit.
CROSSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
CROSSOVER. The effort being made on the part of some of the Mlelbournr merchants to reduce the price of sawn hardwood timbcr is being resented hcrc, most of the mill owners being dctermnnined to close their mills rather than submit to a cutting price, which will hardlly pai- interest on the capital invested. The attitude thus taken by the sawmillers has resulted in a paucity of orders for this district, but they will come along again presently. Messrs. McColl Bros. are utilising their spare time by erecting a platform and putt'ng in a siding at the station, in order to accommodate tihe traffic which they anticipate later on. Tihe Tarago Comupany have once more made a start. Mr. Gunn, of Crossover, appears to be tihe only fortunate owner at present, for he has just received some large orders for mining timber.
FERNDALE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
FERNDALE. The West Tarwin Cheee and Butter -Factory has commenced operations again and the supply is rapidly increasing. Judging by the present appearances, the output of cheese will be very large. The high prices obtained for the conmpany's cheese last season in the Melbourne and other markets has given great encourage ment to the dairy farmers here, as they see now a'good prospect before them, and are consequently buying up dairy cows in large numbers. The price of milk fixefl by the company for October will average 31d per gallon, or equal to 7id per lb. for the butter. .This is considered a satisfactory price in this district. Great credit is due to the manager, Mr. Nestor, for the able manner in which lie has managed the company's business, and for so successfully piloting the factory through two had seasons. However, he will be now amply rewarded for the enterprise and emiergy shown. There is abundance of grass here now' and the farmers will have some difficulty in keeping it ...

GEACHVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
GEACHVILLE. The WVest Tarwin Cheese Factory opened for the season on the 16th of October. The factory is worked by a co-operative company, under the manage ment of MIr. P. Nestor, of Bull Swamp. Judging by the large quantity of dairy cattle purchased every fortnight by local residents, a considerable increase in the supply should soon take place. Shearing is in full swing at present, though the number of sheep shorn will be very small, owing to the bush fires, com pared with other years, Messrs. Aikman, Heinz, and Pope being the heaviest losers in that respect. MIr. Heinz commenced shearing on the 1st of November, having nearly a thousand sheep. Some of his own bred ewes cut over 14 lbs. of wool. Splendid rain fell here on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of October, accompanied by strong winds. A valuable mare in the possession of Mr. P. Kennedy was killed by a falling limb during the storm. A dance was held in the Mount Eccles Hall on Friday, 28th October, which was well attended. Tihe la...
REVIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
EI ETIEIVS. WINDSOR MIAGAZINE.-We have re ceived the current number of the Windsor Mlaazine, and it is one of the best we have seen. Its principal feature is a brief article on Mr. J. Henniker Heaton, M.P. the statesman who has already conferred a boon on millions of people, in different portions of the British Empire, by the intro lduction of Imperial penny postage. The record of Dr. Nansen's ° framn" expedition to the North Pole by Lieut. Johansen, who accompanied him, is continued. An instructive paper on the London Polytechnic, England's largest Educational Institute, and a. historical article entitled ''"In Nelson's footsteps" are both splendidly written. Ethel Turner, the gifted young Aus tralian authoress, contributes a capital story called " Second Nature." There are over a dozen other articles in the magazine, which is splendidly illus trated with over 150 portraits and en griavings. The number altogether is an excellent one, and a marvel of cheapness at sixpence. REVIEW OF...
CHILDERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
CHILDERS. On Wednesday evening last " The Snow flake" Minstrel Troupe from Thorpdale came up and gave a variety entertainment in aid of the charities. Nothwithstanding the wet evening, a fairly good number attended, about £3 being obtained. A dance followed the entertainment. On Saturday evening the Childers Mutual Improvement Association held their ordinary fortnightly meeting, which took the form of a free dbncert known as young members night, or reading and recitation night. There was a fairly good attendance. SDuring the past week, splendid rains have fa!len, the Gov. gauge registering 1 in. on Thursday morning, and 47 points on Saturday morning. Grass is very plentiful, and stock com paratively scarce. From present appearances the raspberry crop will be heavier than last year, notwithstanding the extremely dry summer of last year.
NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
NEERIM SOUTH. The season promises to be a record one for the potato crops, for although last year there was a good bit planted with the tuber, this season will undoubtedly eclipse the output of last year. The crops, moreover, are all looking strong and healthy, and the growth very even. Mr. It. V. Armstrong has a specially fine paddock of 15 acres, planted last July, all looking splendid. Preparations for tlhn ball in aid of the funds of the Neerim Mechanics' Institute are going on apace. The date is fixed for the 23rd November. and there will be an extra good variety of talent to attract a full house.
