A WARRAGUL ROMANCE* Truth is said ttjo foe stranger jtha,n fiction, anct Warragui residents have been much interested during, the past few d(a,ys in. a jroma'nce ot real life * During the past 2J or 30 years, at least, a familiar iden tity in Warragui and district has ben a person known by 'tJle cog nomen of "Ambling Bill," so cal led because ot his peculiar gaitf made necessary by having had his leg badly fractured through meet ing with an accident whilst enga ged in his work, SOIJC years ago. No! one seemed to know " Billy's" real name; his closest associates were ot the opinion it was 'Wil liam: Kelly, though that probably arose from the fact that in the pioneering c^ays he worked for p. good mafny ears as a lad with Mr. Kelly. For months' past enquir ies have ben made through the police department in various parts ot Gippsland for a "William Hick son, whose people were anxious to hear of him, so as to acquaint him \\*ith the news that he was en titled to a 'fourth share in a lar...

BU'SHED" ON THE LAKES, TRARALGON BOWLERS IN BOAT ALL NIGHT. OVERTAKEN BY STORM LATER. The Traralgon bowlers bad an unusal experience, after paying a ousmess visit to Bairnsdale a few Jays a go. They left Bafrnsdalc by motor boat about time p.m. on' Saturday night last, intend ing to reach Kalimua. at 12.30 a.m. The night was moonless, but the atmosphere pleasant and not cold. The reflection of the bush fires in the Lakes- district could be seen in several directions. It was a :merry party of 13 that got aboard the boat, and they looked forward to a pleasant run, and a gratefui change at the Entrance. All-went well down the river, and hundreds of skip jacks jumped out ot the water as the boat raced along. About 10.30, and after pas sing what the passengers believed to be the Metung light, the per son in charge at the boat infor med them that they were in the lambo river. Some of them re fused to 'believe it, but tl:at did Hot alter the fact that the "banks could be seen on either sid...

THE LIBERAL POLICY. COMPENSATION TO WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 January 1914

e - = == ' THE LIBERAL POLICY. COMPENSATION TO WORK J ERS, \ . Now that the members ot the Liberal party in the State parlia ment have settled their differenced { which naturally arise among men ?who think for themselves) they should be ready to frame and pass measures which make for the .highest good ot the many. The triumph ot Mr. Watt, and the freconstruction ot his Ministry mean, among other things, that instead ot a plunge into socialism the wage earner will get certain solid advantages. Amongst the measures that will do much to improve the position ot the wage earner is one to pro vide tor compensation to workers tor injuries occunng in the coure ot their employment. Under the old system the worker's chance of securing compensation if disabled whilst at \york was very doubtful, and the chance of his widow se suring compensation was more doubtful still. Many generous and ?wealthy employers have acted very liberally, but some employers are not generous, and ,most employers are n...

SPORT AND PASTIME. BOWLING. TRARALGON v. BAIRNSDALE For some years a team ot Tra- j ralgon bowlers has paid a visit to i Bairnsd,ale the Saturdav nearest to Foundation Day. The tour has ! always been most enjoyable, al though the locals have invariably won the match, and stripped the visitors of their laurels. Part of | the programme has been a night run down the river, ana a brief I but very delightful stay at the Lakes Entrance. This nocturnal trip has always been done bet ween the hours of 8.30 p.m. and 1 a.m. the following day. This gi\ es the opportunity ot obtaining a whifl of ozone, on the Sunday and part of the Mondav, ana the bowlers return to Traralgon re freshed and recuperated. Last Saturday was the date ot this trip, and Mr. J. G. Keys undertook the onerous task "ot collecting a tea,m ot 12 reputable bowlers, and arranging the details of programme after the match.

You Should be Determined In rejecting the worthless and frequently injurious counterfeits which are Eometimeu pushed for the sake of greater gain as "ju&t as good" as the GENUINE SANDER and SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT.

The preparation of SANDLER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes givs it curative virtues peculiarly its own.

SAVED HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 27 January 1914

SAVED HIMSELF. A non-commissioned officer, enter tog a barrack gate in Dublin, was mis taken by the "raw recruit" on sentry go, who immediately saluted him. The non-commissioned officer, unaware that his colonel was just behind, re turned the salue-a thing not permis Bible in the circumstances. Soon he was called before the colo nel. On presenting himself, he was asked how he came to return the sal ute, knowing full well that he was not entitled to it. Not in the least em barrassed, he promptly answered. "Sir, I always return everything I am not entitled to." The colonel, taken back by his ready wit, laughingly dismissed him. Sundays and holidays excepted, It is estimated that £20,000 worth of fish are daily dragged out of the sea by British fishermen. It is characteristic, perhaps, of sport, that its followers bring to its pursuit a wealth of the finest qualities known. Courage, endurance, self-sacrifice, chivalry-these are commonly regard ed as the essential elements of heroic act...

HOW THE TiDE COMES IN. The silent noon is past; the tide hai turned; end now the sleepy sunhGami fill with a new song of in-driving rip plea, as the waters begin to return iron. their long exile under the glitter ing southern sky. Hustling together .like sheeiTat a gate, the low wavelets journey over the weed-strewn shore; and visibly, span by span, ,the wide sand-acreage narrows before'the eyes An hour ago" the sea was a voiceless, indefinable thing, remote as the blue sky it merged into on the far horizon; but now it is suddenly near, and broad awake and eager-striding impetuous ly landward; stretching out wide sand dunes that never again will drink at its sparkling rim. How swiftly the tide comes in over these brine-sodden levels is difficult to realise, unless care ful, watch.be kept. It is a,s though "siSn&fHfF fell - into: tlfe remoteness and the silence, and at once some invisible barrier dissolved away. The incoming waters lift in long terraces one behind the other, ...

SPINELESS CACTUS . CUSTOM OFFICERS' RAID.' At Rochester last week, .Cus toms officers, accompanied by a police oifficer, seized the consign-, ment ot spfneless cactus plants brought to Australia a few weeks ago by an American land seeker from California After interviewing the owner ol the cactus at Bamawm, where he is working, the party returned to Rochester, and .took possession ot the plants, which had been propa gated in itins, tand had made fine growth. It seems /that ,some mistake was made in allowing the plants into Victoria under the Noxious Wee'ds Act. The settler pcted quite openly. The cactus plants are alleged to pass through by an error ol the shipping agents' carrier with the settler's luggage. The consignment seized is the true Burbank spineless Variety, se cured after greait trouble by the settler, who wprked for two years on Mr. Burbank's Santa Rosa nurseries to get experience before coming to Austra'ia.

SHEEP SALES. Sheep have been good property (or some time, and promise to be so lor an indefinite period. The market is keen, and prices have been advancing steadily lor some considerable time. The cause is the high price of wool and meat, consequent on the increasing de mand and consumption in the mar kets ot the world, and particularly in the United States. The rams of Sunday and yesterday will shar pen the enquiry lor sheep, as the growth ot feed will be stimulated. In Gippsland more people arc m tcrestea in sheep than at any previous period, and the prov'rice is now carrying many thousand more. . Sheep farmers are undoub tedly doing well. Owing to the higher price ofmeat, it he meat pro ducing breeds will have more at tion. and Gippsland wi'I send more fat lambs and sheep to the market than hitherto. A.
