Here is ai famous 'restaurant, five stories -high, with a wide, green-portalled entrance. There is. a crush of bloated Chinese at the bottom of the stairs. and the air has a hot murkiness and is laden with the unsavory odour of Chinese cooking. You climb up the broad steps, flanked by panels of fantastic woodcarving, and you are in the great dining-hall. The walls are dark, -colored lamps swing from the roofs, the tables are big and solid, and topped with grey marble slabs, and the place is packed. Every body is talking his loudest and shovel ling food into his mouth, and drinking hot samshu wine, and the perspiration is streaming down the blubbery cheeks, and the waiters are screeching and banging bowls about. You stand for but a minute looking at the spectacle, watching the wealthy, pleasure-hunting,restaurant-loving Chi nese feeding, and the thought t...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
HERE AND THERE. ' judge has recently been lecturing on .sentences and how to calculate them. In many cases it would be worth while knowifng how even verdicts in civil a.c tions are arrived at. In a morning paper recently -was a head line, "LC000 for the loss of a husband," and directly beneath it, "L1500 for the loss of a leg." Kow, how does the calculation come in. The State school boy, on reading these paragraphs, would probably state a pro portion sum : If one leg is worth L1500 what is the worth of a whole man? I confess I. should not like to lose a leg for L1500, whereas husbands are plen 'tiful, and, judging by law court pro -ceedings sometimes, many a woman would take far less than L3O000 to be re lieved of a troublesome spouse. In -'Natal the price paid for a wife used to bell head of cattle, equal to L33 sterling. ,Owing to the ravages of rinderpest, the same number of cattle are now worth L132, and as a result we are told that ,there is a boom in the matrimonial mar -ket. ...

On leaving Poverty Villa, she turned her steps towards the main street of the Village. and wondered where she would And Milly. It was yet light, a kind of luminous twilight, with a star-sprinkled heaven, and a gentle breeze sighing amid the trees. Few people were about, as it was now about nine .o'clock, and the majority of Barnstead folk were 'ithin doors, lingering over their sup pers. Iris paced slowly along, her head aching with nervous pain, and her heart full of anxiety. When she arrived In the square where St. Dun Stan's Church was situated she paused in utter helplessness, for she knew not In which direction to look for the truant: nor for very shame could she ask any of the passers-by if they had seen the girl. For the moment she was Completely at a loss what to do. Unexpectedly, the chimes began to ring, and the clock of St. Du...

THE FIERY ORDEAL. ON THE ISLAND OF BENGA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
THE FIERY ORDEAL. ON THE ISLAND OF BENGAL' The Island of Benga, where the fiedy. ordeal takes place, was the supposed r sidence of some of the old gods of Fijl. and was therefore considered a snared land. Naturally, also, its chiefs took high rank. First of all, it is uece6sYp, tot explain the native love, or oven;5 1 which the nasawe root is baked. This oven is merely a more or less circulal: hole, or hollow, dug and prepared in the ground, with a diameter of from 181 feet to 24 feet. The oven is nort filled with rough loge of flirewood, plied up 2 feet or 10 feet. On the logs are placed a great number of water-worn stones, varying in weight from 81b or 101b to ~I cwt. It may here be explained that the masave is a Dracaena, with fibro.?u$ roots as large as a yam, and full 'o sugar. These roots are baked in the love for four days. The fire for the or deal is lighted in the masawe oven be fore daybreak, and burns for several hours-that is to say, until all the stones on the top, big ...
NEWS FROM ALL SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
NEWS FROM ALL SOURCES. The average duration of human life in European countries is greatest in Swe den and Norway, and lowest in Italy and Austria. The exploring ship Frithjof, under Lieutenant Wellman. has sailed from Tromso. in Norway, on a voyage to the Arctic regions. In London there Is a manufactory in which every kind of rare or ancient coin is made, and a collector need not go out of the place if lie wants to fill his cabinet with numismatic treasures. Berlin pays a salary to a professional bird catcher, who keeps scientific insti tutions supplied with birds, nests, and eggs. He is the only man in the em pire permitted to do so. Signor Vendemini, a radical member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, charged the just retired Premier with allowing the army to trample upon the country. The Chamber responded by cheering the army. Temperance puts coals on the fire, meal in the barrel, flour in the tub, money in the purse, credit in the country, content ment in the house, clothes on...

A GREAT WORK FOR AMERICA. THE NICARAGUAN SHIP CANAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
A CBEAT WORK FOR AMERICA. r i I_ NICARAGUAN SfHIP CANAL. T'Je cabte has again something to Firty about a great project. A canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through the isthmus which divides the northern and the r?outhern continents of America must neoessarily be of vast commercial and naval' importance to the United States. It would reduce the distance of sea tran ilt between the eastern and western states by more than one-half. It would ab-olish the dangers attendant at many i?easons of doubling Cape torn. It would enable the United States to mobi lise the powerful fleet they will un do'ubtedly have in the near future, on their eastern or western coast, as pcca eion might require, with the utmost ex pedition attainable. Such a canal would bIe of almost as much importance tb the ,Unite? States as the Suez Canal is to KGreat Britain, with her rich and exten Sive possessions in India and other parts of Asia, and in Australasia and the Slouth Pacific.. And the control of...

THE QUEEN AND HER SOLDIERS. TWO HEROES RECEIVE THE V.C. The following account of Her Majesty the Queen's visit to Netley Hospital, when she pinned the Victoria Cross on the breasts of Piper Findlater, of Dargai fame, and Private Vickery, of Dorset Regiment, is taken from the "Daily News"':- At the time of the Queen's visit there were 956 patients in the hospital, and of these 163 were sick and wounded sol- diers from the Indian Frontier Cam- paign. In the surgical division were 53 &nbsp; men who had received bullet wounds in the campaign, and amongst these were Piper Findlater, the hero of Dargai, and Private Vickery, the man of the "Dor- sets" who distinguished himself so bril- liantly by saving the lives of some of his fellow soldiers. These two received at the hands of the Queen, the Victoria &nbsp; Cross, and this part of the programme was the most important and the most interesting of all during the Royal visit. Her Majesty was taken up to the sur- gical divisio...
AMERICA'S NAVAL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
AMERICA'S NAVAL RESOURCES Undoubtedly the outcome of the war will be a vast expansion of the naval and military iesources of the United States. New battleships are to be built of the Illinois and Alabama class, and a great impulse will be given to the work of construction. Commodore Schley's advocacy of S-inch guns, based upon the experience at 'Manila, has caused much discussion in the naval circles of the States, and it is resorted that experts wish to see guns of this calibre intro duced in the new ships. Already the naval department has taken steps for the construction of sixteen destroyers of twenty-eight knot speed. Here the Americans are taking a leaf out of the Spanish book, but they will soon outrun the:t rival. The new boats are to be completed within eighteen months, and are to be of good sea-keeping power,with a displacement of 400 tons, and two quadruple-expan?;cn engines, according to the "New York Herald," of 10,500 or 11,000 horse-power. The engines and boilers are t...

SPORTING. WEST GIPPSLAND FOOTBALL PREMIERSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
SPORTING. WEST GIPPSLAND FOOTBALL PREMIERSHIP. The interest taken in local football this season has been very keen, the attendance of the public being fairly large and the majority of the matches well contested. The clubs in the West Gippsland Football Association number five--Half-holiday Imperial, Warragul, Drouin, Brandy Creek, and Yarragon. Of the two Warragul clubs, the Half-holiday have shown their undoubted superiority, having practically an unbeaten record, although credited with only 22 points out of a possible 2S. One match, however, which this club won-against Drouin -was taken away froimi them by the association on account of playing A. Rice, who, on somewhat tliisygrounds, was adjudged ineligible to play. Drouin occupies second place with 20 points, Brandy C(reek being third with 16, and Yarragon fourth with 12, while Warragul occupies the inglorious posi tion of bottom of the list-a position which they will, however, probably improve upon before the season is over.
