ST. PAUL'S CHURCH. THE NEW INCUMBENT. PRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS AND PURSE OF SOVERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH. - THE NEW INCUMBENT. PIRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS AND PURSE OF SOVERINGS. -0- The annual meeting of parishioners of St. Columb's Church of England, Glenferrie. was held in the school room, on Monday evening last. The incumbent, the Rev. T. H. Armstrong. M.A., presided, and there was about 150 of the parishioners present. The report of the guardians for the past year showed that the receipts amounted to £1482, and the expenditure to £1420. There had been a falling off in pew rents and offertories to the extent of £220, which had, however, been met by retrenchments and a special appeal to the congregation, enabling them to show a small credit balance. Grateful acknowledgment was made of the valuable services rendered by the various bodies of church workers, and regret expressed at the loss of the Rev. E. D. Fethers, who had been appointed by the bishop to the living of Warragul. Mr. Fethers was presented by the guardians with a very handsomely illuminated address, wh...
THE LITTLE WRETCH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
THE LITTLE WRETCH. Seeing that little Johnny Tompkins was safely out of the country, under injunctions to make a new man of himself, and to keep that new man, when made, at the Antipode., I could not see anything indiscreet in touch ing on the matter in the course of conversa tion with Mrs Hilary Musgrave. In point of fact, I was curious to find out what she knew, and, supposing she knew, what she thought. So I mentioned little Johnny Tompkins. " Oh, the little wretch !" cried Mrs Hilary. "'You know he came here two or three times? Anybody can impose on Hilary." " Happy woman ! I-I mean unhappy man, Mrs Hilary." " And how much was it he stole ?" " Hard on a thousand," said I. " For a time, you know, he was quite a man of fashion." " Oh, I know. He came here in his own hansom, perfectly droessed, and-" "Behaved all right, didn't he F" "Yes. Of course there was a something." "Or you wouldn't have been deceived I' said I, with a smile. "Iwasn'tdeceived," said Mrs Hilary, an admirable f...
A Wallaby Song, [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
., A Wa;llaby Song, By CtLeGG. Up with the billy and on with the swag, Work may be scarce but what care we, . Sheep-dip, tobacco, and full tucker bag, . Oh the swagman's life is jolly and free. ' The stations are good and the days are bright, In the flax of the river we'll lie and dreamu, Plenty of time to reach somewhere by night, : Ohwe love the sound of the lazy stream. Graft's all right by way of a change, When you want acheque for a harvest spree, But these pound-a.week days it's better to range With the swag and the billy light-hearted and .free. I met an old joker wot rme from South, And we dodged along together a while, And he cried for a job with so poor a mouth That if I were like him-well, I should smile. Wot's the jolly use of working all year Clo'es and tucker is all you'll get, Why it makes a bloke quite sick to hear The way that some coves will "whip the: cat" Had by the publicans, that's the cry, Shut the shanties and give us a show,. Mm Man! but the world willbe mig...

Apples as Medicine. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
Apples as ledicine, Chemically, the apple is composed of vege: table fibre, albumen, sugar, gum, chlorophyl, malic acid, gallic acid, lime and much water. Furthermore, the German analysts say that the apple contains a larger peroetage of phosphorus than any fruit or vegetable. The phosphorous is admirably adapted for renewing the essential nervous matter of the brain and spinal cord. It is, perhaps, for the same reason, rudely understood, that old Scandinavian traditions re present the apple as the food of the gods, who, when they felt themselves to be growing feeble and infirm, resorted to this fruit for renewing tneir powers of mind and body. Also the acids of the apple are of signal use for men of sedentary habits, whose livers are sluggish in action, those acids serving to eliminate from the body noxious matter which, if reteined, would make the brain heavy and dull, or bring jaundice or skin eruptions and other allied troubles. Some such experience must have led to our custom o...
POLITENESS OF GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
POLITENESS OF GREAT MEN. Truly great men are polite by instinct to their inferiors. It is one element of their greatness to be thoughtful for others. The greatest men in the world have been noted for their politeness. Indeed, many have owed their greatness mainly to their popular man ners, which induced the people whom they pleased to give them an opportunity to show their power. Many years ago the errand boy employed by a publishing house in a great city was sent to procure from Edward Everstt the proof-sheets of a book he had been exam ining. The boy entered the aast library, lined from floor to ceiling with books, in fear and trembling. He stood in awe of this famous man, and dreaded to meet him. But Mr Everett, turning from the desk where he was writing, received the lad with reassuring courtesy, bade him sit down chatted kindly as he looked for the proof sheets, and asked-" Shall I put a paper around them for you?" as politely as if his visitor had been a president. The boy dep...
Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
Ladies' Gossip. The introduction of compulsory civil mar riage in Hungary has been decided upon by the Government. The Emperor Francls Joseph has sanctioned the bill, and the Prime Minister has made it a Cabinet question. The Countess of Aberdeen has bought the stock, business, and premises of the late MrBen Lindsay, who for many years promoted the manufacture and sale of Irish lace in Dublin. Lady Aberdeen has placed the management in the hands of the Irish Industries Assooin tion, in which she has always taken a warm interest, and a committee bas been appointed specially for this branch of the enterprise. An interesting volure has recently been published inSweden, containing a great deal ofinformation about Swedish lady writers, from the days of Santa Birgitta to the pre sent day.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. Legend of the Edelweiss. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Legend of the Edelweiss. This star-li~e flower that high ia cloud-land blows, Once was a maiden-so the legend goes A maid so fair, so pure without, within, That all her loved, yet worthy none to win. In vain her suitors wooed, in vain they sighed; Until at length, when still unwed, she died On mountain top, enthroned 'mid snow and ice, Transformed to flower, she reigns as Edelweiss. And since alone through toil and bravery, And upward struggle, found this flower maybe, To pluck the Edelweisa is to obtain The noblest love that mortal manmaygain, Since 'tis the type of ideal womanhood Of all that is most pure, most beautiful, most good. -'" Detroit Free Press."
POPULAR SCIENCE. The Revelations of Science. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
POPULAR SCOENCE. The Revelations of Science. It is not only that ecience has revealed to us infinite space crowded with unnumbered worlds ; infinite time peopled by unnumbered existences; infinite organisms hitherto in visible but full of delicate and iridescent love liness; but also that she has been, as a great archangel of mercy, devotinu herself to the service of man. She has labored, her votaries have labored, not to increase the power of despots or add to the magnificence of courts, but to extend human happiness, to economise human effort, to extinguish human pain. Where of old men toiled, half-blinded and half-naked, in the month of the glowing fur nace to mix the white-hot iron, she now sub. stitutes the mechanical action of the viewless air. She has enlisted the sunbeaminher sr vice to limn for as, with absolute fidelity, the faces of the friends we love. She has shown the poor miner how he mfy work in safety, even amid the explosive fire-damn of the mine. She has, by her a...
A Clever Literary Swindler. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
A Clever Literary Swindler. - o One of the cleverest literary swindlers who ever lived was a Maltese named Vella, who pretended to have an intimate acquaintance with Arabic, although he did not know a word of that language, and was not even familiar with the alphabet. He arrived in Sicily about the end of the last century, at a tinme when the barons of that country, in order to settle a dispute about theirfeudalright, were anxious togaincer tan information about the kingdom in the days of the'Saracens. Vella .contrived to be appointed trans lator of certain Arabia manuscripts, -and he actually produced' an alleged translation and played his part with asuch address that he obtained honors; dignity and the pro feesorehip of Arabi in the University of Palermo. The Sicilian literati last became asus picious and endeavored to expose the im postor, but he was defended by some of the most eminent men of the island, and it was with the greatest difficulty that an investiga tion was sedured....
AN INSTANCE OF TACT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
AN INSTANCE OF TACT. To be able to say the right thing at the right moment is a great art, and said only to be acquired by those who have a natural talent that way. Wean a careless talker, who was criticising a young lady's father severely, paused a moment to say, "I hope he is no relation of yours, Miss i," quick as thought she replied, with the utmost nonchalance, " Only a con nection of my mother's by marriage." Few could hope :o show suach a readiness of speech in a dilemma of this kind. Yet in a more curious and amusing way this was matched by a cautious old woman who, when asked what she thought of one of her neighbors by the name of Jones, with a knowing look replied, "Why, I don't like to say anything about my neighbors: hut as to Mir Jones, sometimes I think, and then again I don't know; but, after all, I rather guess he'll turn out to be a good deal such a sort of a man as I take him to be." o0
Lord Jersey on New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
Lord Jersey on New South Wales. --o---- In the course of his paper on New South Wales, recently read before the Imperial In* atitute, Lord Jersey said that many persons had but the vaguest ideas with regard to Australia. Some did notknow where Sydney was, andhe had been asked by others whether they had any railways in Australia, and if he stayed withl our Ambassador there." The principal thing that impressed him during the stay was the enormous acreage and the disroportionate supply of population. The' lacof people was the greatest hindrance of progress. New South Wales was well provided with minerals. Coal was plentiful. The strike of 1838 had cauredvery serious results to trade, and nowhere was that more apparent than in the Broken Hill district, the history of which was a modern romance. The development of pastoral pursuits had been remarkable. ,No one was allowed to purchase more than a certain amount of land, and residential occupation was insisted on. In one part of the colony...
THE FASTEST WARSHIP IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
THE FASTEST WARSHIP IN THE -WORLD; Mr Max Pemberton has been "realised." It is something to possess the fastest war ship in the world, and the Americans are not the people to hide their light under a bushel. A correspondent of the "Daily Graphio" thinks they have certainly achieved a striking success with their new cruiser, Columbia, more widely known, perhaps, as the ' Pirate " commerce-destroyer. On her preliminary trial trip between Cape Ann and Cape Porpoise, on the coast of Maine, the Columbia began by making a record breaking performance of 22.S;7 knots an hour, but this exploit, satisfactory as it was in the highest degree, comes short of what the Columbia accomplished on her otlicial trial trip a few days later. On that occasion, for 7. nautical miles in the whole test run of 44 nautical miles continuous steaming, she raced from mark-buoy to mark-buoy, according to the official log, at the hitherto unheard-of pace of 25.3 knots an hour. For the whole eourse her general rate ...
Over and Over. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 February 1894
Over and Over. A kindly word costs little When a downcast face is near, And many hearts will lighter beat For words of friendly cheer. Less thought for selfish planning, And more for others' needs, And many a heart would grow sweet flowers Instead of worthless weeds. If all our hearts, from day to day, Could be as blithe as birds in May If we could carry, as we go, Some words of cheer to all we know How glad a place this world would grow: We hurry, hurry onward With thoughts on self intent, And never heed our neighbor, So old and lone and bent. One little act of kindnees, One gilt from out our store, Would wake his heartto singing That would reach the father shore. Then let us write and let us say The same old words from day to day; If old and young and high and low Would scatter unshine as they go; How bright a place this world would "row! r ?.A.
