YARRAGON. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

YARRAGON. The recent MIilitary Ball, in connection with the rifle match between the War iagul and Moe detachments of the Mounted Rifles, was a splendid success. In many respects it was regarded as superior to the general order of things, and -all those who patronised the ball expressed themselves as having spent a very enjoyable evening. A little variety was introduced into the programme through the singing of a duct by lMes dames Walsh and Unger, which .vas beautifully rendered, and highly ap plauded by those present. Refreshments were provided by Mr. Munro, who ap peared to have done his utmost to anti cipate the varied tastes of the company. Music was ably supplied by MIr. James. Prior to the .ball the Moe -. detachment were entertained at dinner at Hayes' hotel by the members of the Yarragon detachment. -The host carried out his duties to perfection and served up a really excellent repast, while thie visitors seemed to appreciate the efforts made to render their stay as enjoyabl...

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

THE KITCHEN GARDEN. Small and frequent sowings of turnip seed should be made during the warnr weather, to keep up a succession of me dium sized tender roots, and when it is seen tha: the seeds do not germinate free ly owing to the heat, some light material should be spread over the bed to brea.W the rays of the sun. This must be re moved as soon as the seedlings are well above the. gro nd. Radishes are alscs benefited by shading; in fact, some grow ers place hessian, fastened to a light! framework, over the beds. This cover ing is gradually raised as growth ad vances. The roots will be more appre ciated when protected in this way, andl will last longer in a serviceable condi tion than when grown exposed to the sun. Celery is another crop that is greatly helped by shading for a week or. two after planting. Both shade andl moisture are necessary to induce the roots to penetrate to the manure helowy as soon as possible. A sowing of peas for a late crop mugl now be made. Veitche's Perfe...

OSTRICH FARMING IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

OSTRICH FARMING IN SOUTH AFRICA. The Rev. John Mackenzie, in his very) interesting "Glances at South Africa" in "Good Words" for September, has something to say of ostrich farming which is now one of the staple industries of Cape Colony. Some forty years age the process of domestication commenced with ostrich chicks captured by farmers while still small, and reared on their? farms and plucked. In 1865 the whol) Colony possessed only eighty tamed os triches. An incubator was invented and patented by Mr A. Douglas, living nean Grahamstown, who succeeded in rearing ostriches in large numbers. In 1880 thd export of feathers was 163,0651b, valued at LSS3,632. About this time a pair o8 breeding birds readily realised L200, and even more-L1000 was given more than once for a pair of specially well-known) birds of superior plumage. There arose for a time a mania for ost. trich farming, and all who could embarks in it did so. In a short time the demandi although increasingly great, was far ex...

INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS IN WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS IN WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. The "Electrical Review gives parti culars of the experiments in telegraphy without nlatervening wires, which have been made during the past few weeks by the Wireless Telegraph Company, between the Royal yacht Osborne and. Osborne House. Perfect signals are stated to have passed both ways dur ing the whole ten days of the trials, no hitch occurring from first to last. Nu merons messages passed between the Queen and the Prince of Wales, ind between the Prince and a number or other members of the Royal family, and one or two Cabinet Ministers. Mr Marconi had charge of the trials. Every morning a bulletin on the condition of the Prince was sent to the Queen by wireless telegraph. The height of the mast on shore was 105ft., and that of the top of the wire from the deck of the Osborne was 83ft. The yacht wan moored in Cowes Bay, at a distance of nearly two miles from Osborne House, and the two positions not being in sight of one another, as ...

MARGUERITE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

MARGUERITE. I'd a dear little daughter-a sweet, darling child, Her hair. it was golden; her eyes soft and mild; Her cheeks were like roses, those dowers so sweet; And cherry-like lips, had my dear Marguerite 11cr teeth were as white as the pearls of the sea, And her cheeks had a dimple when smiling for use; And her arms, and her hands, and her small. chubby feet. Were some of the charms of my sweet Mar guerite. Hecr name, if you asked her, she'd lisp, with a smile, "Ise Rita, you know"-and then, after a while- "And Iso just two years old, and I live in: a1ia street, .' aIIf father and muvver," would say sarguerA Ite. But one summer eve, when the moon shone 6a bright. My lttle one kissed me and basoe me dood night; When the morning sun rose over ripe fields of wheat. I found God had taken my loved Marguerite. And oft as I gaze up towards Angel Land, I think of my loved one among that great band; And I knovw that sho'll say wneu in heaven we meet: "At last, dear mamma, you have joined...

DISTRICT NEWS. POOWONG EAST. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (Fnoxr OUR CORRESPONDENTS). POOWONG EAST. A very painful accident happened to a young man named Richardson, of Allans bee East, when working with his brothers on a clearing at Mountain View. Whilst trying to shift a log, he slipped on to a stake which penetrated the fleshy part of his thigh to a depth of 31 inches. Another accident occured at MIr. W. H. Collins' sawmill some 3 miles from Long warry, one of his sons getting his collar bone fractured through being crushed against a partition by a horse. He was taken into D)rouin for surgical treatment, after which he was taken home again. IBoth Richardson and Collins are progres sing favourably. All the pastures and grazing areas are looking splendid. There is an abundance of grass, and the cattle are looking well. It is really marvellous how they have managed to pick up after the bush fires, and the severe winter they have passed through. Mr. Glasgow is making about 7cwt. of cheese per week, Messrs.

FEED FOWLS LESS. WHEN EGGS FALL OFF IN WARM WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

FEED FOWLS LESS. WHEN EGGS FALL OFF IN WAltM WEATHER. It may not appear reasonable to my readers to be told that when the sup ply of eggs begins to fall off in the sum mer months. they should give their fowls less food, but the only way to prove the value of the advice is to try it. Every one who keeps poultry may not be aware that a large portion of the food used during the winter goes towards produc ing animal heat, being utilised for warming the body: It is therefore used in that manner, but in summer the case is different. Warmth Is not required, and the heat instead is stored on the body as fat. TWhen the supply of food is continued, the body of the fowl be comes very fat, and the hen begins to lay soft shelled eggs, double yolked eggs. etc. Some fowls die from ex cessive feeding. They are often treated with tonics, which only make the trouble worse. When eggs begin to fall off, unless hens are moulting, I would advise reducing the amount of food, avoiding any kind that is fatt...

THE GIPPSLAND PROVINCE ELECTION. OPENING THE CAMPAIGN. MR. HODDINOTT AT SALE. HIS POLITICAL VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

THE GIPPSLAND PRO VINCE ELECTION. OPENING THE CAMPAIGN. E MR. HODDINOTT AT SALE. 1 HIS POLITICAL VIEWS. SOn Wednesday evening Mr. Hoddi Snott addressed a meeting at the Vic Storia Hall Sale, the Mayor being in the chair. The Chairman said the colony was divided into very large provinces, each returning four members, and the Gippsland Province extended as far distant as Chiltern, with which portion of the colony the people at this end of the electorate had no community of interest except on national questions. He thought it would be better if there was a reform of the Council in this direction so that the representatives of the people in that Chamber would be more in touch with their consti tuents. Mr. Hoddinott ought not to he a stranger to many in the hall, but he supposed he was, as the population of Sale had altered considerably during the past 20 years. He was a native of Gippsland, and had occupied property in various portions of the dlistrict, latterly in the north-eastern por...
