THE ROYAL SHOW. THE FARMERS EXCURSION TRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
THE ROYAL SHOW. THE FARMERS EXCURSION TRAINS. The question of farmers' excursion trains to Melbourne during the annual show of the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, which begins at the end of August, was discussed by the council of the society last week. It was re ported that the Railway Comnnissioner had been waited on, and refused to provide these trains, as they wouldl cause a loss of &5,000 to the depart ment. The council thought it saw a way out of the difficulty, in the sug gestion that the commissioner should abolish the running of the excursion trains now run at the end of Septem her. It was finally resolved, that the council-as a whole should wait upon the connummissioner, and ask him to alter the time of the year for running farmers' excursion trains from the end of September to the period of the show itself. The miild wcatle" is having a very appre ciable eflect upon use crops at Pakenham. Along the mp Geiobrook-road, particu larly, there are somne magnifice...

MISCELLANEOUS. DURABILITY OF LUMBER. The Wearing Value of Different Woods Used for Building Purposes. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
MISCELLANEOUS. DURABILITY OF1'LUMBER. The Wearing Valne of DIareren* Woods Used for Inilding Iunrioses. Many persons are familiar only with the growth of building lumber aronnd them; hence they are often deceived Yellow or southern pine i$ very desira ble. All are as familiar with it as with cedar; but, says an Illino farmer in aP. communication to Rural New 705le, it has perfgct facsimile in spruce and tamarack, both very perishable woods when exposed to the weather. They can be used to dllrnjtage only for inside ,UrK, such as sii)orlllg. Most prairie people are not familiar with hemlock as a fencing or building lumber, but they know the durability of black walnut and poplar. While the eastern man might not know how to es timate the western product, so the west ern man buys the eastern spruce, tanma rack and hemlock lumber and finds, to his sorrow, that all are very perishable even if well painted. I find that lum:n ber will last twice as long when weather bi.arded straight up and ...
PRESENTATION TO MR. E. J. FOWLER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
PRESENTATION TO MR. E. J. FOWLER. Few men in this district are better known than Mr. E. J. Fowler. He has been a resident in Warragul for something like twenty years, and was one of the founders of the WTarragul Fire Brigade, of which body he has been a prominent member ever since its foundation. In view of Mr. Fowler's approaching departure, the members of the brigade, at their last meeting, presented that gentleman with a handsomely illuminated address and pair of: gold sleeve links. Mr, G. W. Anderson, captain of the brigade, in making the presentation, spoke in most complimentary tcr ms of Mr. Fowler and of his services to the brigade. Several other members also added their testimony with regard to the energy MIr. Fowler had dis played in connection with the work of the brigade and expressed their regret at his departure. The sleeve links were specially manufactured by 'Mr. H. J. ,.Day,. jeweller, Warragul, and the address was also supplied through him. [The foregoing report. wa...
A LOCAL MINING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
A LOCAL MINING CASE. A case of some interest to the min ing commmunity was heard at the Warden's rCourt, at Warragul, on Thursday last, when Frank A. Harris sought to recover compensation from William Douglas for the latter allow ing sludge to flow over his (Harris's) claim, and also asking for an injunc tion to restrain, Douglas from contin uing to do so. Both parties are miners, and are sluicing at Frenchman's Creek, Neerim East. Harris also holds a water-right. For the evidence of complainant it appeared that he took up his claim some time prior to Douglas, and did a large amount of preparatory work, and just as he was getting on to the gold, Douglas took up the adjoinining claim higher up the creek, and started running his sludge over his claim. This prevented Harris from carrying on his sluicing operations, and ren dered the work he had done, valueless, hence the action before the Warden. Several witnesses corroborated the complainant, the manager of the Neerim East Proprietary...
CHURCH CHANGES. THE INCUMBENCY OF ST. PAUL'S. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
CHURCH CHANGES. THE INCUMBENCY OF ST. PAUL'S. An unusually large number of clerical changes has taken place within a recent period in the ranks of the Church of Eng land in the diocese of Melbourne. Amongst those in which local interest centres are the transference of the Rev. W. Parkes fromi Warragul to Maffraw; the Rev. F. W. Willcox, formerly of Watrra gul, from Sorrento to Seymour; the Rev. C. J. Chambers from Yarragon to Trent ham, and the appointment of the Rev. T. J. Winsor. of Marshalltown, to Yarragon. The vacancy at St. Paul's, Warragul, has not yet been filled. It has been offered to the Rev; R. Poynder, of Mahlnesbury, but the offer has been declined. We understand that a number of the congre gation would like to see the Rev. Mr. Edwards appointed to the living. Mr. Edwards was formerly stationed at Dronin and is now in charge of the Hastings parish. He was undoubtedly held in high esteem by the local community, and was, we believe, as popular amongst the other denominat...
THE WHEAT MARKET. WARRAGUL V. MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
THE WHEAT MARKET. ---+------ c WARRAGUL V. MELBOURNE. Local wheat-growers can apparently obtain a better price for their wheat at the Warragul market than by sending I it to Melbourne. This is indicated by I the fact that at their market recently Messrs. Parkes and Round sold a large quantity of seed wheat at 3s 8d per bushel-precisely i the same price as that obtained for a 1 consignment of similar wheat sent by them to Melbourne. In the latter case, however, the cost of carriage has 1 to be deductedfrom the gross proceeds, 1 and to that extent the producer was out of pocket, as compared to the 1 financial results obtained at the local market. As this is rapidly becoming t a lwheat-growing district, there is no t reason why a regular wheat market t should not be established here, and I buyers brought to Warragul instead of the grain being sent to outside markets. t

Boyce had been re mnanded fromn a previous court on a charge of horse-stealing, hut, on the application of Mr Rylah, who appeared for the informant, the information was amended, and the charge of lyeniy a§ a 1aRilee substituted. Mr. Gray appeared for accused. James Meade, laborer, tarragon, gave evidence as to meeting the accused at Yarragon on 27th April last. Accused asked him to buy his mare. They had drinks at Mahony's hotel, and subsequently at Hayes', where accused cashed ait cheque. lie subsequently met Boyce outside Mahoney's hotel, and agreed to buy the mare for £7.

DEATH AMONGST THE CATTLE. LOCAL DISTRICTS SERIOUSLY AFFECTED. HEAVY LOSSES AT FERNDALE SEAVIEW AND ALLAMBEE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
'DEATH AMONGST THE CATTLE. LOCAL DISTRICTS SERIOUSLY AFFECTED. HEAVY LOSSES AT. FERNDALE SEAVIEW AND ALLAMBEE. The scarcity of pasture, combined with the exposure incidental to fatten ing cattle on the rugged heights to the south of Warragul, have unfortu nately resulted in the death of a large number of valuable animals, and entailed heavy losses on certain in dividual farmers in the Sea View, Fern dale, and adjacent localities. This unhappy sequel to the bush fires was partially expected. It, in fact, i§ the natural sequence to the devastation wrought by the devouring element, but is nevertheless to be deeply re gretted and the sufferers to be sympa thised with, in this additional loss. Our Ferndale correspondent writes: -A large number of cattle have died in this district during the past few months owing to the scarcity of food. Mr. F. A. Gilbertson has lost 16 full grown cattle, including 2 good bulls Ayrshire and Shorthorn-and over a dozen young cattle. He estimates his loss at...
COST OF LOCAL OPTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
COST OF LOCAL OPTION. Up to the present time the local option compensation court, which has been sitting- at Echuca for the past three weeks, has dealt with 14 out of the 20 hotels to be closed. The total amount of compensation so far awarded totals over £13.000. Whilst returning home in a phfeton from the Maffra Coursing ground last week, Mrs W. J. M'Lean and party of friends had a rather sensational experience. The reins broke, and the horse attached to the vehicle bolted, the occupants being thrown out on to the road. Mrs M'Lean was consider ably bruised and knocked about, and a little girl, her sister, had a narrow escape. Miss Glassford drove Mrs M'Lean into Maffra, where she was attended by Dr. B3oake.
THE JUDGE AND THE PIGEONS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
THE JUDGE AND THE PIGEONS. An interesting fact about Mr. Hawkins, of the English Bench, is that he is a constant friend of a flock of pigeons which frequent the out side of the Law Courts. He has in his room there facing the Strand a large bag of Indian corn, with which he feeds his feathered friends every day at luncheon time. This bag is kept constantly replenished by his orders, and woe betide the attendant who fails to look after the wants of the pigeons in this respect.

WEST GIPPSLAND FARMERS' ASSOCIATION. ACTION AT WARRAGUL. PUBLIC MEETING TO BE HELD. SMESSRS. MADDEN AND TREN y WITH, M's.L.A., TO BE INVITED TO SPEAK. A meeting of the West Gippsland Farmers' Association was held at the I Railway Hotel, Warragul, on Thursday Slast. The president (Mr. P. J. Smith) occupied the chair. There was but a small attendance of a members, including Messrs. Davis (Childers), Butler (Darnum), and o Armstrong (Neerim South), and seeing Sthat full publicity had been given in the Gazette to the notice convening the meeting, and that all the leading farmers of the district were thereby made aware that the meeting was to be held,. the sparsity of the attendance can only be attributed to the reasons specified in our leading columns. The Chairman said that there was no doubt the farmers required such an association as to this look after their interests. A movement was now on foot to abolish the Stock Tax, and a motion to that effect was before Par ment. The farming ca...
CRANBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
CRANBOURNE. Pastures are recovering gradually under the beneficial influence of the recent rain fall, which amounted to 6in. 74 points for Cranbourne during the months of May .and June. - The crops have made splendid headway, and the general outlook is far more encouraging than it appeared at the commencement of winter. Stock were very mnch impovished in consequence of the scarcity of feed during the drought, and large numbers of these died off, being unable to stand the cold weather. One dairy faumer at Cardina lost 35 head of milkers within a few weeks, and at Officer many farmers have also sustained losses. The scarcity of fat stock is felt in this as in other districts, and dealers who have hitherto obtained their supplies at the Cranbourne monthly market are unable to obtain what they require, and except ionally big rates rule. The Cranbourne cattle market supplies most of the require. ments of the whole Mornington Penin sula, and a very large area of the district this side of ...

WARRAGUL BOWLING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 19 July 1898
WARRAGUL BOWLING CLUB. Preparations for the forthcoming season, in connection with the above club, are now-well in hand under the supervision of Messrs. Connor, Munm, and Lewis. The green has been re surveyed, and is being levelled ready for sowing. As the club has been successful in getting the work done early, a much better green is expected than last year. With a full green ready for members to use, a large increase of supporters will, doubtless, ensue. The success of the one rink last year has encouraged the com mittee to -continue their efforts to make the game a popular one in War ragul. Mr. Lewis having resigned his position of Hon See, Mr. J. Connor has been appointed in his place. The handsome pair of silver mounted bowls presented by Mr. Hansen, and won by Mr. Porter have been duly admired and handed over to that gentleman.
