OUR LETTER BOX. 'We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressed by correspondents under this heading.] TO TIlE EDITOR. Smn,- aving been " moved by the spirit" to think seriously of the present depressed state of Victoria, and of that portion of it called Gippslaud in par ticular, I will, with your kind permission, give expression to my tloughts through the columns of your paper. I do not expect to startle the public by "evolving something new and original, or do I flatter myself that I have discovered an easy and royal road to fortune, looking to the future I can only see hard work coupled with enterprise and dogged perseverance to effect our emancipation. Butnot one ray of hope do I expect from so called "parental governments" filled'with the conthlicting elements of classjellousics, aml sordid aspirants for office and loot. As as simple unit in the aggregate of a million of population, 1 consider that we have hitherto occupied a ridicu...

By Thursday afternoon it had spread to Cheap's road and on to' the holding of Mr. Gregory. Hero the scrub and undergrowth is dense, and when burning caused a very painful sensa tion to those who had to be in its vicinity.

THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH, 1895. Drinking Microbes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 February 1895
SiartragI Guarbian W Irn' WHICI? IS INCORPOUiiATED TUESDAY, FEBRUARY T.r, 1895. Drinking Microbes. THE scarcity of water produced by a drought of exceptional duration is causing a deal of inconvenience to many of the local householders. " With two or three envied exceptions the only means of storage is the ptoverbial tank. And some of these are not of the most capacious proportions. The consequence is that a few weeks' fine weather produces a water famine among a considerable proportion of the inhabitants. It is sufficiently disconcerting to reflect that men and women are partially deprived of this essential to life, but it is infinitely more unsettling to know that in their extremity they are to day procuring waterifrom disused wells into which the drainage of houses and stables is constantly percolating. Others are obtaining their supplies from creeks whose waters are admittedly polluted and thus, in both cases, residents may be unconsciously imperilling their lives by introducing...

FARM AND GARDEN GEESE ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 February 1895
GEESE ON THE FARM. Poultry Tlektling Two Sources of rirolt, S Gosl ngs 1ilorlme Feathqer. It is a isnbijet' for Epecnlation why geese areid not more generally raised by farmuers. The profit accruing from a rA\I OF TOULOUSE G-EEE. flock of geese makes no small addition to the. incoine of the farm. Not only are geeso valuable for their flesh, but their down and feathers represent a fair money ·?vlue. Practically the farmer has but-two varieties to select from, the Toulouse and Embden, if the best meat producers is to be the rule for selection of his stock. William Rankin of Massa chusetts, who has had 30 yeaA' experi ence in keeping geese, has been quite successful with two crosses, those made by mating an African gander and Emb den geese and then crossing the young geese with a pure African gander. The two varieties of China, brown and white, although hardy, are not large enough and do not make pounds enough of flesh for the early market. The Toulonses head the list as suscepti ble t...

Perfumes and Character. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Perfumes and Character.~ The possibilities of perfumes in the torma tionot character have not hitherto engaged the attention of our eduooationalists. It has been reserved for an ingetious Parisian mind to discover the immense influence which may be produced on the mental and moral faculties by an assiduous and intelli gent use of certain perfumes. The nose we may now take it, is the most notent organ for good or evil in the human frame. Furni shed with a well-assorted outfit of sceut bottles, a man has every quality of character and mind at his command, from the noblest heriosm to the highest intellectual power. This new method oPfcnracter formation or, rather, transformation-has now many devoted adherents. Its leading prin oiples have already been tabulated, and are so straightforward in their simplicity that a child could practise them. Would you have a hold. active, decisive nature-a spirit delighting in adventure? Then essence of geranium is the thing for you. Do not for get to ...
Raisins as Food. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
Raisins as Food. A good handful of raisins and a hunk of bread and lutter is a feed that would satisfy the hunger of a sturdy man, and be more nutritious than a greasy steak and apint-of beer, especially during hot weather. .But good table raisins are sold retail at Is 3d per lb, and they ought to be obtainable'for abgut half that price. It in calculated that Mildura raismns are better than any imported, and that an acre of raisin vines will produce one and a half tons, which if sold wholesale at 3d par lb would give £42 per acre. The crst of growing, drying, packing, and marketing would not absorb more than £20, which would leave a fair margin for the grower-much more than the wheatgrower gets! When the people begin to know how nice the Mildura raisins are they will want to use them as a diet upon a considerable scale-if nottoo dear.
One Reason Why Fruit is Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895
One Reason Why Fruit is Cheap. A citizen, desirous to lay in a stock of apricot jam, conned apricots, etc., visited the market last week (writes the " Adelaide Observer"), and selecting three cases (kerosene boxes), paid the highest price going, and had them sent to his home. He exchanged newkerosene boxes for those in which the fruit was packed, and next day his women folk started to preserve the fruit, and this is what they discovered: the edges of the boxes were split, and large thick boards were nailed inside, thus diminishing the capacity of the boxes; the boxes were only three-fourths filled; the top three layers were large sound fruit, the remainder consisted of small, badly ecabbed, rotten fruit, windfalls covered with soil en the side on which they fell; much of the small fruit quite green, a lot of it rotten ripe and even fermented. At the bottom of the boxes a lot of dirty horse chatf and fowls' dung. The citizen paid a high price because the fruit looked large and clean ...

Baboo English. a- A specimen of Baboo English, the argu ment of a learned pleader for an appeal is quoted from the "Englishman":. My learned triend with mere wind from a teapot thinks to browbeat me from my legs. But this is mere gorilla warfare. I itaud under theshoes of my client; and only oeek to place my bone of contention clearly in your honor's eye. Mly learned friend vainly tuns amulcr upon the sheet anchors of my case. Your honor will be pleased enough to observe that my client is a widow, a Poor chap with one post mortem eon. A widow of this country, your honor will be pleased enough to observe, is not like a widow of your honor's country. A widow of this country is not able to eat more than one meal a day or to wear clean clothes or to look after a man. So my poor client had not such physic or mind as to be able to assault the lusty com plainant. Yet she has been deprived of some of her more valuable leather, the leather of her .ose. Mylearned ffiend has thrown only an arg...
