APPLE BLOSSOMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
le APPLE BLOSSOMS, id it Only a spray of apple blossoms, fresh d and fragrarant and fair, dropped, per b* chance, by a merry schoolboy while has e tening to his play. There tlhey lay on a secluded corner of the busy-street, unnoticed and unharm d ed, while tl:e soft May zephyrs gently r fanned the delicate petals of pink and "white.. A young woman was languidly cross .t ing the street. Her dress betokened shabby gentility, while the careworn d face sItowed unmistakable signs of for e mer beauty. She might have been hand e some still but for the pinched and hag r, gard look. which told plainly of a lhard e struggle with that gaunt and eruel wolf e -poverty. r She spled the blossoms, and mechanic e ally picked them up. S"Ethel will like them," she murmured 1 tenderly, pressing them to her cheek. r "She is so fond of flowers!"- A tender - light shone fil the dark- eyes at the thought of her little golden-hairedf girl.

A DROWNED WORLD. WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE "GAZETTE." [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 12 July 1898
A DROWNED WORLD. WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE " GAZETTE." About five thousand years ago, the world having degenerated and become altogether depraved and corrupt, a great preacher arose and prophesied the im- pending destruction of all that was there- on. The preacher's message was received with derision and scorn, but, notwith- standing, he continued to work at a vast and gigantic vessel, upon the construction of which he was engaged for more than a century; perhaps, being one of the chief men of the earth, employing several thousand workmen during the whole of that long series of years. Assuming the cubit to be the ordinary measure of length the tonnage would be about 42000 tons, but if the " geometric cubit " is indicated the great vessel would be no less than 240000 tons burden, or equal to the ton- nage of nearly twelve " Great Easterns." The huge construction being completed, a number of animals and birds were col- lected, in pairs, representing the various species of living fauna...

LABERTOUCHE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
LABERTOUCHE. The dairy tanners in the Labertouche district will have a much larger supply of milk the coming spring than at any previous time. The bush fires have had a most beneticial effect on the rough scrubby country, and there will be a much larger supply of grass in future in consequence. Mr Devancey and the Middleton Bros will in all probability be the larger milkers, and each will have about 40 cows. MIr M'Donald expects to milk about 30 cows, and several other farmers will milk more cows than last year. It is not likely that the creamnerv will start until the spring, when the sup ply ought to be considerable.

DROUIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
DROUIN. iMr. Kowazilk, the gentleman who has purchased MIr. King's farm, near Drouin, was a few years ago farmnning near Laun ceston, Tasmania. which is noted for its apple orchards, but Mr. Kowazik affirms that he never saw finer apples in Laun ceston than some he has seen in Mr. J. G. Young's shop window, the quality of which surprised him not a little. He has a five-acre orchard on his new property which he proposes to enlarge. Mr. Kowazik will devote attention to fruit in addition to other crops. Mr David Swan, a very old colonist, died here on Wednesday, at the ripe age of 80. He came here from the Colae district 10 years ago. A very large area is being sown with oats, and more crop is being put in. The grass has made a good start, and the pad docks through the district are changing to a beautiful green. It is more than pro bable that only a limited area will be planted in potatoes, owing to the price of seed. Several growers are preparing for putting in early potatoes, and it ...

REFORM IN LAND SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
REFORM IN LAND SETTLE MENT. - +-------- The Minister of Lands has intro duced a much needed reform in reganrd to land settlement. lFormnerly when Crown Lands were thrown open for selection or perpetual lease it was nec essary for all those who applied to forward £1 with their application, to cover cost of advertising etc. For the successful applicants, this was all very well, but those whose applications were rejected invarialy regarded the. retention of their hard earned nmone as inothing less thau robbery, on thIe part of the state. MIr. Iest has now' introduced an amending regulation by which all unsuccessful applicants will get a refund of 17s Gd. This concession will deprive the revenue of a few hundred pounds ms year, but it is one that will be mmuch aplpreciated by those who so far have been unsuccessful in obtaining land to settle upon.
