HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895

HERE AND THERE - li Josru PEETBIN5Gl. 'A `entleman' who holds a pubi licence in the woody wilds of GippslO was lately fined £10 and lectured byan appreciative Bench for having on hil iises, for sale, inferior brandy. Solf good, or so bad, as one's philooplhy decide to take it. In addition to 1 fine he received a lecture from the Bech' the effect of which is not always mu mensurate with the solemnity of re proceeding. But the chief pointin t particular case was that it was thisyenti man's fourth conviction for aimil offence. He was not a gushing iolss who had been led astray by a wo bottle or whose instructions had beenet unders!ood by some equally ingelnuo barmaid. He 'was what, in crimin circles, wouldbe called an old offeder, not to say a hardened one, and as such the magisterial lecture probably fell fro him like water off a duck's back.

OLD ERASMUS VERTLES. HIS SELECTION-MADE FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895

LD ERABSIIIS VIETLES. HIS SELECTION-MADE FORTUNE. By M. 'Yes, I know. the very. espectable elderly gentleman who read' the interesting paper an the giant gnno of '.ippaland. I have known kim many years. He always was given to admiring trees and shrubs, and to poking about among birds, beasts, insects and reptiles when he was foreign correspondence clerk to my father. I remember one time Vertes was away in Sydney. His desk had to be broken open in order to get rid of a putrid platypus. stored for dissection. You can imagine what an addition such an enthusiast must be to the Field Naturalists' Club. particularly as he left my father's office and lived in the wildest part of Gippaland for some years. Father said when he left, " Poor old Vertles. Snakes, iguanas or wild cats would be pleasant companions compared with what he has had." This remark of father's was not quite correct, for Rose Vertles was just about as good a daughter and as nice a girl as any father could wish, or any youn...

IS LOVE A DREAM? [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895

IS :LOV' A :DBEAI?. BY MRS HERBERT MARTIN.' Night was falling-a grey, dai, p.October night-on the great wilderness of London. Night pierced by the sounds of the Yvast 'city, which strike so mournfally attimes on the ear of one who vaguely listens in the solitude that is loneliest of all, the solitude set in a crowd. Such a solitude was George Brandon's as as he sat over the fire in his luxuriously fur nished flatin South Kensigton.. The fiat and the furniture were alike new as, well as costly. 'A year ago he had been. very dif ferently housed, a struggling young journalist in dingy rooms in Camden Town. Those poverty-stricken days were over, when he hardly knew where his next dinner was to come from., The death of an old cousin who left no will, and from whom he had no expec tations, had given him comparative wealth, and he was rising into repute as a clever writer. But as he sat now, musing, with the un opened, magazine on on his knee, he did not look much happier for his change of...

BD 3Lrcrs Cra?nx, Juo. yaronstation is situated in the north of Vic -toris, and belongs to one of those lucky indivi. duals whose parents (though not of Australian birth) "picked up," literally speaking, in the forties ; and on their decease left properties to their Australian-born sons, who are now tabu tlted under the name of " squatters, wool kings, etc." Luckily for the owner and his 30,000 acres, he had no income tax, and so rolled actually in wealth, visited society in all the pomp and splendor of afestive peacock, while behind their backs he picked them literally to pieces. Sir Jameson James was a member of Parlia ment, and whenever the House spoke of an in come tax he was firmly against it. "Think of it Great Scott ! How unnatural !" If a new Government (and he was bound to be elected-not because of his brains-but be cause of his money) he would stand up and sake a gallant speech (I), and point out how the unfortunate tenants of...

AGRICULTURAL The Art of Driving a Team of Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895

AGRICULTURAL The Art of Driving a Team of Horses.. ily Loan Hoarurnnn, in the "Live Stock Almanac." I can quite imagine thatsome sceptical per s-n may laugh at the idea that there can be any art in what, to an ignoramus, looks like a mechanical act which only reqnires brute force. Let me, however, try to dispel such an idea from his mind by informing him that driving is an art in all its stages, and one that many try to achieve, though few ever really master. The art of driving does not consist in sitting on a coach-box and holding four reins, and if the beginner will only start with that truism firmly impressed on his mind, he will have learnt a most useful lesson, which will always stand himingood stead. When I was first allowed to handle a team, my instructor, who was an AI driver, and who had had a coach of his own --though he then had, as he said, a wife and four children, which had replaced the coach and team-first told me that if I wantAd to drive a must never be above taking...

Hints for Home and Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 February 1895

Hints for Hcme and Farm. -o For ducks there is nothing better than milk mixed with pollard, barley or maize meal, that is for raising market ducks. Turkeys cost little to raise and fatten if you have plenty of land in a suitable district. They don't do well in cold climates. Mdelilotus ofilcinalis, or Bokhara, or Giant Clover, is an excellent fodder plant when grown in a similar way to lucerne. It is a highly aromatic plant, and one of the beet honey pro ducing crops known. Rhubarb seeds if sown now in a rich, well. stirred bed of soil will produce nice young roota before the end of May. They will then remain dormant until August, when they can be trans planted out singly to the best advantage.. A good healthy drink first thing in the morn ing-a fresh egg beaten ur in in a glass of fresh milk, to which is added a teaspoonful of sugar and a little ground nutmeg-use a brown. shelled egg if you have it for this drink, it is rich, and will turn the milk to a golden color. Try it! The pr...
