READ, MARK, LEARN. INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

READ, M1ARK, LEARN. INTERESTING ITEMS. "To buy a pig in a poke" is to buy a pig in a pouch, or hidden,as :pouch is the same "as: poke. Pocket :is a diminutive of poke. Macaulay, the noted historian, was as a child very precocious. When he was three years of age he was scalded, andi being asked of his mother if the pain had gone, he replied, "Madam, the agony is abating." "Boycott," derived from Captain Boycott, aland agentin Mayo,Ireland, so treated in 1880. The word must have been badly needed, for in six years jfteirwaids it was used-as a verb in English, French, German, Russian, and Dutch.. :.It is estimated that 460million tons of imid is carried down by the Ganges yei~rlt. "Tea-tree," name of a tree found in Australia, from the leaves of which tea }vas made by Captain Cook's sailors, convicts, and earlier settlers. In this wvay it derivedits name.

CHAT WITH A COMPOSITOR. HIS EXPERIENCES OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

CHAT WITH A COMPOSI TOR. .HIS EXPERIENCES OF LIFE. Life as seen from a compositor's frame makes interesting reading for the outside public. Few have so fre quenctly the opportunity of studying the manuscripts of well-known men nnd women-leaders of science, politics, literature, and fashion-as the patient type-setter. And his impressions on life are always worth listening to. Perhaps he catchesa literary fragment from the manuscripts before him, and so aiays lihas a fund of recollections to draw upon. A compositor well known in colonial press circles-Mr. William Eastwood, of Stanley-street, South Brisbane - lately gave a reporter soihe interesting items:-"l have been lately employed on the IB-isvbann Tele gratlh,'.'said Mr. Eastwood, and have had a good deal of experience. Eight years ago, as a result no doubt of con finemeut indoors, the first symptoms of what afterwards proved a serious conplaiit, 'manifested. themselves.

FOR0 THE LITTLE LADY'S SAKE. (From "Cassell's Saturday Journal.") Bless you, there ain't no cause to be afraid of :he Dexter curve nowadays. The Company relaid the track-after the accident. Still it's a nasty down-grade curve all the same, and I never drives my engine round it without recollecting that night when I broke the company's rules lust to do a little lady a good turn. Ah, she was 4 sweet-looking lass-a wee lilt of a thing not molre than two and-twe-cnty. But with such eyes! I can see 'm non. looking me through and through; two big, round. trembling things, as made a tickling down my spine, and said, as plain as plain, "I'm true as steel, I am." She was standing by a third class car riage. "Could you tell me which is the guard of this train." says she all of a shiver from head to foot. "Well, miss." I says, "Dick Allingham ain't on the spit just yet. The train don't go for thirty minutes or more."' "I only wanted to ask if-if, for a con sideration, T could have the door of ...

CORRESPONDENCE. MR. HOLLIER'S FARM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. MR. HOLLIER'S FARM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-I notice in your last issue a letter from one who styles himself "Glorious," re the returns from Mr. G. Hollier's cows for year 1897, in which he seeks to convey the im pression that the reason Mr. Hollier had satisfactory returns from his cows is because his (Mr. Hollier's) son is manager of the creamery where the milk was delivered. In reply, I wish to say that every supplier's milk is measured and treated exactly alike, and that no favors are given to or received from any one supplier more than another. Also, that my reputa tion will stand just as close scrutiny as your correspondent's, perhaps a little closer. I certainly have no occasion to try to conceal my identity under a nowu de plumw, as your corres pondent seenms to have done.-Yours, & C., C. HOLLIER, Manager Sunny Creek Creamery. Sunny Creek, Nov. 2, 1898. [Unfortunately the last sentence in the letter from our correspondent " Glorious" is capable of the con...

A LOCAL ITEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

A LOCAL ITEM. ( From Siydiney 31o!nin, Herald.) There are a great many of them. Every paper has its share. Statements hard to believe, harder to prove. Statements from far away places. What people say in Queensland. Public expression from New Zea land. Oftimes good endorsement there. But of little service here at home. Sydney people want local proof. The sayings of neighbours, friends, and citizens. Home endorsement counts. It disarms the sceptic, is beyond dis pute. This is the backing that stands be hind every box of Doan's Ointment. Here is a case of it: T. W. Hickson, of No. 170 Cumber land street, this city, says:-"For-a few weeks I was very much incon venienced by an attack of itching piles, from which I could get no relief. D)oan's Ointment was first advertised at that time, and I obtained apot of it, and I am glad to say that the piles conmpletely disappeared after three plications of the ointment, and rI've not had occasion to use it since.

ON GAMBLING [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

ON GAMBLING (By the Late Rev. John 3'Neil.) Not only abstain from evil itself, but from all appearance of evil. This is a command from God's book covering gambling. Some people never made a bet in their lives, and never touched money got in that way. There's a hand-not that I have not had an immense sum of money passing through my hands as a railway contractor-that has never touched money won in betting. I want to lift up my voice against bet ting and gambling in every form. This thing is everywhere; men, women, and children are at it; the vice has honeycombed society. If, upon full con sideration, we think it good, let us en courage it-but if it Is evil-tried by God's standard-In His name and our country's let us condemn the thing and root it out. What about people who get up church bazaars and lotteries? If any church gets in my way so much the worse for that church. To what depth a church can sink. Here's an instance. A church had a lottery; one prize was a horse and trap; five s...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

HERE AND THERE. There was an amusing little incident at the dinner to Mr Septimus Miller the other evening. One of the nmen who had the pleasure of sampling one of the most beatific bills of fare I ever read in my life was unfortunate enough last year to sustain a severe sunstroke. it did him no serious mental injury, but it stopped his grog as effectually as would an order from Admiral Pearson. Since it happened, even his liqueur glass of curacoa would "spoil him." So, when ever he has to attend a public dinner. he always arranges with a waiter to have a small decanter of toast-and water put near his seat. Now, toast-and water, if judiciously concocted,has very much the outward and visible appear. :ne of old dry sherry, though it by no means possesses the same inward and spiritual grace. And so it happened that. when the gentleman I allude to carried out this little innocent deception at the Miller dinner, the delusion was so per fect that another guest, who prefers dry sherry to a...

ON FEEDING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

ON FEEDING POULTRY. There is no doubt that many of the failures in poultry keeping can he traced to irregular and injudicious feeding. In these times of expert poultry culture, the aim of every poultry Ikeeper is to obtain the largest supply of eggs from his poul try, and there are many at the present time that are ste:tdily increasing the quality and egg production of their flock. There are a number of good laying breeds, and there are also other breeds which are not up to the mark, and in the latter breeds there is ample room for fanciers to go infor improving their laying powers, both by judicious feeding and breeding. It is well known that care is essential to; success with poultry. There is a great difference in the care bestowed by the up to.date breeder in comparison with the old fashioned methods, and although the outlay may be larger, yet the benefits re ceived are far greater, and the money invested returns him bigger pirofits. Good care means good houses, dry, well venti ...

HAND-REARING OF FOALS. PRACTICAL DIRECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898

HAND-REARING OF FOALS. PRACTICAL DIRECTIONS. To the volume of the "Journal of the Royal Agricultural Society" just pub lished Professor J. Wortley Axe contri hutes a very useful article on 'The Mare antld Foal." The following extract deals with the hand-rearing of foals: Notwithsstanding the most scrupulous care in stud management, disease will now and again assert itself, and, either 1by hopelessly damaging the udder or destroying the mare. leave the produce dependent for its food supply on sonme extraneus source. As to whether hand rearing is a desirable course to pursue will very much depend on the age, char acter. and breeding of the offspring. The more youthful it is when deprived of its parent, the greater the amount of trouble it will give, whether its other properties be good. bad, or indifferent: and those who undertake the task of ministering to the wants of these unfortunate youngsters must be prepared for no in considerable sacrifice of time, to say nothing of comfort. a...
