A NEW ARRIVAL. MR. A. C. LEWIS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

A NEW ARRIVAL. MR. A. C. LE.WIS. -0 An announcement in our advertising columns informs the public that Mr. A. C. Lewis has taken over the chemist's business, formerly carried on by Mr. Purees in Queen.street Warragul, and is moving into the adjoining shop. Mr. Lewis comes from Shepparton, where he was exceedingly popular and when on his departure, he was entertained by the leading residents and presented with a handsome gold keyless hunting lever watch. The " Shepparton Advertiser," in its report of the ceremony says: "Dr. M'Kenna, who occupied the chair, expressed sincere regret at losing a really good friend and 'a good chemist. In business Mr. Lewis had been most atten tive and skilful; while in private he was held in' the highest esteeni. The time allowed the promoters of the idea of making the presentation was very short; otherwise the gift would have been a much more valuable one. However, it afforded good proof of the popularity of the' recipient, to whom, and to Mrs. Lewis, ...

FIRE AT WARRAGUL OUTBUILDINGS DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

FIRE AT. WARRAGUL OUTBUILDINGS DESTROYED. - -0-- Residents of Warmgul were not a little alarmed- on Saturday afternoon last, at the violenit ringing of the fire bell. Inquiry elicited that the fire proceeded from the outbuildings adjoining Mr. James Biram's private dwelling near the railway locomotive sheds, in fact the smoke was plainly distinguished from the greater partso the town. Members of the Fire Brigade hurried to the scene as quick as possible taking the apparatus cart with them, knowing that water wv available from the railway tank. It was at once apparent that there wea not the slightest chance of saving the shed or any of its contents, and the exertions of the Brigade were merely confined to watching the structures in the vicinity. Fortunately a strong breeze was blowing from the east so that the dwelling was comparitively in little danger. The hose was connected - with the railway water suppy, but the fire was eventually allowed to burn itself out. The only explanation...

THE DOG AND THE SNAKE. THE LATEST YARN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

THE DOG AND THE SNAKE. THE LATEST YARN. -0 The latest "snake yarn" was related to us the other day. Mr. King, an employe of the Railway Department, was out shooting when his dog, upon which he sets considerable value, ran foul of a large black snake. The dog was seen to be exerting itself to gel away from some unseen power and when the owner came up he discovered the snake fastened on to the poor animil's nose. He immediately dispatched the snake, and taking a firm hold on the dog's nose attempted to cut out the bitten part with a blunt pocket knife-the only available instrument. This, however, could not be effected, so Mr. King, stillkeep ing his hold on its nose, carried the animal to the adjacent railwey line where the blunt knife again came into operation, this time with better results as the bite was hacked out accompanied by a good portion- of the dog's nose. The remedy has, however, though severe, proved beneficial, for the dog has lived through it all, and our informant trea...

THE ROKEBY SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

THE ROKEBY SETTLE MENT. Mr, Hamer, as representative of the Hamer Homestead Association, had an interview with Mr. M'Intyro on Friday concerning the delaytin granting payment of the state monetary assist* ance and other matters affecting the welfare of the village settlement scheme. It is Mr. Hamer's intention before leaving Melbourne to arranug foe the holding of a united conference next month of representatives fromi all the settlements, to which ministers of religion, members of Parliament, and others interested in the movement will be invited to take part. He thinks that the conference will be the means of placing the scheme on a more permanent and substantial footing, especially as all the other Australian colonies, he says, are lookeng to Victoria as an example of what can be done by village settement to grapple with the unemployed difficulty.

EARLY MATURITY IN LIVE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

EARLY SIATUITY IN LIVE STOCK. In these days of "quick returns and small profits" it has come to be an asion with the advanced school of stock-feeders that the animals which arrive at maturity the soonest are the most profitable. The old-time prac tice-which still obtains on some of the cattle stations and farms in Australia-of allowing the beeves to reach the age of four and five years before sending them to the butcher, is obsolete in other countries. The bulk of the beef cattle of England and America are now slaughtered at two years of age, a few are allowed a year longer, but many are killed at 12 and 18 months. The same practice pre vails with regard to sheep. Wethers are never shorn more than once, as a rule, and a very large proportion are killed with their first fleece on their backs. So, also, with pigs, When a porker has attained the age of eight or nine months he is supposed to have reached the maximum age for profit. One reason for this craze for early maturity in live st...

THE Warragul Guardian TUESDAY, 30TH JANUARY, 1894. ABSENTEEISM IN GIPPSLAND WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 30 January 1894

STHE Mkaranigul unadlbian TUESDAY; 30Tn JA?UARY, 1894. ABSENTEEISM IN GIPPS -LAND WEST. WaE have for many -years past drawn public attention to the iniquitous re sults bred of a system of reckless absenteeism which obtains in certain parts of Gippsland West. T~o much prominence, however, cannot possibly be given to so serious a subject and the evils accompadying "it cainiot pdssibly be too often exposed. In this, as in all other matters affecting the pros perity of a constituency, it is the duty of the local Press to speak with no uncertein sound for those it'repriŽsehts, and where palpable wrongs exist to insist on their speedy removal and the immediate substitution of that which is just and right. We shall, therefore, continue to denounce the system under notice, and strive to raise the indignation of the public until some thing is done to compel these specu lative holders of vast tracks of fertile country to either relinquish their grasp or tranusform their idle lands into produc...

HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894

HINTS ON ADVERTISING Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scared kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the necessary ex penses of a business, and should be as regular as-rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done .at all. If ,you have a good business .you should advertise; lest competitors shotild takli dvaiitago df the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is small you should advertise, and let tho.e ,public. know where j'ou aroe ad what you haIv to sell, that they may come and buy.

THE PAPACY AND ITALY. VIEWS OF ARCHBISHOP CARR. The Archbishop of Melbourne, Dr Carr, when spoken to upon the subject stated that he did not think it probable that His Holiness the Pope would have stated tha't a revolution was imminent in Italy. "No doubt," he said, "matters are exceedingly grave there, owing to the secret societies and the oppression of the people by taxa tion." "And do you not think that the Vatican is involved 7-" Oh, no ; I think not. It is a matter outside the Vatican altogether. No one who has travelled in Italy can have failed to notice the oppressed condition Of the people. Every thing you see in the shops is dear, and the weight of taxation is terribly heavy. The trouble at bottom is a financial one, and then Italy is overrun with secret societ.ies." " A wave of revolution seems to be sweeping over Europe:'."-"ye . but Italy is particularly affected by secret societies. They were fostered, for politi cal ends, by Iord Palmerston when he was MIinisteor for F...

Making Butter Come in Winter. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894

Iaking Butter Come in Winter. H'ine times out of ten the reason the churn does notchurn in winter is be cause the cows have been in milk a long time and give a milk which is some what viscous. Owing to this viscosity or stickiness it would seem that the fat globules are not able to clear themselves and cohere to form the larger butter globules. The.best way to remedy this. difficulty is to have part of the cows fresh in the fall, in which case the difficulty usually disappears. If milk is set in deep cans, poiur in one-fifth of- the bulk of warm water at time of setting; perhaps this will even help in the shallow pan setting. . Since the cream from shallow pan setting is very thick, try diliuting it with water, and also use a little salt at churning time.-Professor Henry.
