We were out in three divisions to establish a station in the hdlls, where there was no end of trouble among the natives. They were desperate, and liable to anso outbreakat any moment. Late one afternoon our signal corps came in with the report that the central was throwing up a temporary fort, fifteen miles away, doe east, that the natives were massing to the north, and sharp fighting was expected, and that we were to move on for one day more, and then return and hold the new for tification. The major wold have given me an escort, but it would have weakeued him: and, as the going was my own affair. I de cided to goalone. It was only fifteen miles. The jungle was not so heavy hut that I conid easily keep my points by the stare, with an occasional peep at my compass. For the first eight miles I mirht as well have been going ...

CURRENT EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
CURRENT EVENTS. (BY Tsar O'SnaxTmR). Warragul will soon have missed two more of its venerable landmarks. The first is the old dilapidated Fire engine that stood for centuries, they say, in front of Mr, Anderson's shop. How this quietly slipped away no one knows, but like the baseless fabrics of 2 a vision it has not left a mark behind. The other iB the respected Clerk of Courts, Mr. D. F. McGarth, but his departure will, I hope, be attended with alittle more pomp and ceremony than marked the other. Many stirring events have taken place since Mr. M'Grathl first sought the sylvan shades of old Brandy Creek. We were then literally in our golden age and the old town just named was, in its way, quite as important and I nearly as wealthy as Coolgardie has since turned out to be. Not dozens but hundreds who were then handling sovereigns as freely as we are now handling "thrummers" have since had to scheme their utmost to secure three decent meals a day. This was ever so long before the so ...
A Deal in Land. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
A Deal in Land. Apropos of the boom in Rhodesia, a "City Press" writer was told the other day an amusing story that illustrates how quickly fortunes are sometimes made when new coun. triesare being opened op to civilisation. A yearortwo ago, two young fellows, poesosesed of a capitalof L1200, landed in - , and invested their entire fortune in some posture land a few miles up country. Forming en gaged their attention for a while, and then, owine to the discovery of gold in the vicinity, there was a sudden boom, with the result that the ground that before had only prairie value represented a vast sum. The two determined to realise, and they entered into a contract to sell for L120,000, the condi tion being that the purchase money had to be paid in instalments, the last instalment to be handed over a twelvemonth after the seal ing of the agreement. All went well for a while, and the instalments were duly paid, hat eventually a hitch arose, and the final in stalment was not forthcoming....
ALL SORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
ALL SORTS. A correspondent.of a Scotch paper vouches for the fact that a cat on a Coupar Angus farm is nursing a litter of mice. One lion suddently attacked the other in the cage of a circus in New castle, and seizing it by the throat killed it instantly. A third lion in the same cage took no part in the fray. Two English gentlemen succeeded in crossing the Channel from Dover to Calais in a tandem cycle boat, the journey occupying seven hours and a quarter. The boat was twenty-four feet long, fitted with a cycle paddle. It has been discovered in Ireland that peat can be reduced to fine fibre and spun into woollen cloth. Also, when compressed, peat, it is said; forms a good substitute for ebony, and can be carved into trinkets. The young wife of a Paris banker had her hair dressed with some in-. flammable fluid, and allowed it to hang over the backof her chair to dry. By some means the hair caught fire, and the hair-dresser fled in terror. The unfortunate lady was so terribly burned ...
The English Cricketers at Barbadoes. A HIGH OLD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
The Eliglish Cricliketers at Barbadoes. A HIGH OLD TIME. Tho recent visit of the English cricketers to Barbadoes seems to have been an extraordi nary event in the history of the island. We "Westminister ") have been favored with some extracts from private letters, one of which (dated 22nd February) states that for a fortnight there was nothing else thought of or talked about but cricket. "The Barbadoes team were beaten, but by nomeanabadly. They won the first game, but lest the second by 21 runs. Thousands of black people crowded round the cricket ground, and awere most enthusiastic, cheer ing equally for both aides as goodhitslwere made." It was a good time for the natives. " Country people," says another letter dated 22nd March, "drove their eight and ten miles up and down every day, so as to lose none of the play. Two of the days were publie holidays, and practically the other thrao; while schools remained closed the whole time." But it seems also to have been a good time for the...
THE LAW'S DELAY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
THE LAW'S DELAY. Owing to the complaints made as to the manner in which the business of the last County Court was hurried through at Sale and the amount of insolvency and other business that was postponed, Mr. A. Harris has given notice to ask in the Legislative Assembly next Thursday :-1. Is. it a fact that loss and injustice were inflicted upon a number of litigants at the recent County Court at Sale through having to provide themselves with counsel and witnesses at great expense, and then seeing their cases postponed for several months through the judge leaving the distrith before the cases were heard? 2. If so, who was responsible? 3. Will the At torney-General take steps to have the actions tried forwith ?
An Agricultural Society In Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
An Agricultural Society In Trouble. It is much to be feared that the North Gippsland Agriculturalsociety. which has its head quarters at Sale. has fallen upon evil days. Tile fact that instead of getting, as expected, £139 11s 4d for subsidy, they only get £83 is 9d, has placed the society face to face with a ditficulty; £70 is due for interest, and there is only about £4 to pay it with. The assets of the society consist of the show grounds and buildings. valued at £1421. The liabilities consist of a mortgageon same of £1000, interest due £70, debentures secured on the surplus revenue of the society (rather a shadowy sort of security), £233 17s 5d, showing an apparent balance in ravor of the society. but there is no money to go on with, and a prolonged discussion on the situ. ation took place at the annual meeting. Various remedies were suggested, one being that the ground should be let for pony racing, a suggestion which found no favor, and another was that the members of thle comm...
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. Sydney, July 1st. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
OUR SYDNEY LETTERi. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) -0- Sydney, July 1st. t Country members are already hastening 1 away to their electorates, and town e members are already organising their s committees. The tussle is very near at hand. Measures for supply and the Amended Electoral Bill have been rushed through the Assembly at lightning speed. Members are much too busy in negotiat ing a return to Parliament to pay attention ( to such trivial details of legislation. It is dcubtful whether any similar measures ever encountered so little obstruction or t went to the Council in such an un amended form. The gentlemen who are prepared to I undertake the Herculean task of altering t our national condition may already be numbered in hundreds. The day is yet early. Possibly there are thousands perfectly willing to make a bid for the political loaves and fishes. As an instance, six candidates are stated to be in the field for Paddington, of these, at least, four are avowed Freetraders. If the'...
A Flax Mill Destroyed by Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 July 1895
A Flax MIill Destroyed by Fire. The flax mill at Calrossie was burned to the ground on Sunday night. At about midnight an employd was awakened by the noise and glareof a fire, and found the place in flames. The fire of the engine which drives the machinery had not been alight since early on Saturday afternoon, and the mill was to all appearances safe at half-past 10 on Sunday evening. The machinery which was destroyed included a new breaker and scutclher imported by Messrs. Miller and San, of Melbourne. These machines were the only ones of their sort in the colony. They were in sured, but there was no insurance on either the building or the flax stored therein. Mr. M'Kenzie's loss is estimated at £500. Incondiarism is suspected. The meeting of the WVarragul Shire Council, to have been held on Wednesday, fell through for want of a quorum. A special meeting lhas therefore been summoned by the president for Tuesday next.

POPULAR SCIENCE. RECENT INVENTIONS. Br EDWIN PHILLIPS (P1aLurs, OItNODE AND Co.). Incandescent Electric Lamp. One objection that has frequently been urged against the incandescent electrio lamp is that it cannotbe graduated, or in the lan guage of the household, be " turned down." But like most of the obstacles which generally beset all inventions in the embryo or nebu loss stage, this objectionable feature has been removed by time and experience. For a re gulating socket for either direct or alter nating currents is now procurable in New York City, which socket is now prononnced as a practical success in every way, since ny its use the light can be adjusted to any degree of brightness, and under some cirueamstances an economy effected at the electricity meter of as much as 69 per cent The socket is also reported as not to materially differ in size, cost, or appearance from the ordinary non-regnlating socket of standard make now in common use.

Footpath Advertisements. It has frequently been seriously proposed to advertise on the clouds, bnt we haven't arrived at that stage yet, though in France theyhavedevised namethodof printing on or disfiguring the footpaths (and also the roads when they are smooth enough), which is stated to be both economical and service able for those who wish to ad vertise in this way. The stencil plate and brush, that have hitherto been laboriously and often times clandestinely used, are now dispensed with, and in their place is substituted a tricycle. This machine has both or one of its two large side wheels provided with excessively wide rubber or other flexible flanges, the widthof which de pends upon the depths of the letters forming the advertisement. Around the rolline face of these fangesis arranged in big bold type the announcement that wants transferring to the pavement. The wheel flange is, there fore, being practically transferred into a revolving rubber stamp, which receives its ink fr...
