BULN BULN SHIRE COUNCIL. SPECIAL GIAENT APPLIED FOI. o Rleplying to a deputation froth the Buln Buln shire council, which asked for a specialgrant to purchase land for the construction of roads, especially to village settlements formed by the Lands depart. ment, Mr. Webb on Wednesday said it was the first time such a request had been made to him,'and he did not know quite how to deal with it. IHe recognised however, that if the village settlements were to be successful they must have roads, hence the matter was of suflicient import ance to justify him in bringing it under the notice of the Cabinet. iHe subso quently informed Messrs Clark and Maloney, M's.L.A., who appeared with a deputation fromu the unemployed of Footseray. and asked that work should be provided in the metropolis for married men, that he had no money at his disposal to enable him to comply with the request, Moreover he did not consider such a proposol wouldreuove thodifficulty.

THE UNWISE MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
THE UNWISE MERCHANT. One day when business ran down low Deep gloom sat on an erchant's bro sw And dark as midnight was the flow Of thoughts revolving rapidly. That merchant saw a dreadfullsight, By fancy's dim and lurid light; lie thought he saw the sheriff right Among his stock of finery. Ah ! sadder yet his fears will rise, Ah ! deeper yet will be his sighs; Ah ! louder yet will sound his cries Unless he advertise. Now, all who would a lesson learn, Look closely, and you will discern That advertising will return, Like bread upon the waters.

THE REAPER AND BINDER. THE LOCAL HARVEST. ALONG THE BRANDY CREEK ROAD [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
THE REAPER AND BINDER: THE LOCAL HARVEST. -0o ALONG THE BRANDY CREEK ROAD Each successive season witnesses the gradual transformation of the country lying off the Brandy Creek-road, between Warragul and Buln Buln, into acharming and picturesqueno landscape more closely resembling the rural scenes of England than perhaps any other portion of the colony of Victoria. Twenty years ago this magnificent stretch of fertile land was metaphorically groaning and moaning beneath a ponderous burden of giant gum trees and quite impenetrable scrub. It, in fact, constituted a part of the great forest primeval, and had never previously been trodden by a member of the British race. The sturdy pioneer, however, f enlisted the aid of the axe and the fire, and with these resistless weapons com menced to rid the ground of its dense and useless growth. It was a task requiring the dauntless spirit of an Alexander and the muscular strength of a Hercules to successfully accomplish-a task in the performance ...

POULTRY FOR LONDON. ---e--- EXPORTING EXPERIMENTS. CONSIGNMENT OF 400 BIWDS. The Department of Agriculture has recently been giving its attention to the question of exporting dressed poultry. In the first instance inquiries were made throngh the Agent-General to ascertain the prices likely to be realised, and the best time to ship consignments, and it was gleaned that poultry are most scarce in London between the months of March and July, during which time English Surrey fed chickens realise from 3s. 6d. to Gs. each wholesale, and ordinary fed chickens from 2s. 6d. to 3s. Gd. The latter are late autumn or spring hatched birds, with an average weight, after being plucked, of 2Ilb to 3llb. With a view to ascertaining the best method of transporting poultry to London a few selected fowls were prepared and placed in the depart mental cool chambers on 10th Decem ber last.

THE Warragul Guardian FRIDAY, 9TH FEBRUARY, 1894. VICTORIA'S ONLY HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
THE i artagul nuarbi an FRIDAY, 9ir FEBRUARY, 1894. VICTORIA'S ONLY HOPE. A counTRY whose imports are largely in excess of its exports cannot possibly enjoy prosperity for any length of time. It may for a while be made to apparently flourish by administering artificial sustenance in the form of heavy loans, but sooner or later the re-action must come, and like as a patient collapses on the withdrawal of stimulants which have produced un natural animation, so a country dependent on external assistance must inevitably receive a crippling shock when that assistance is suddenly witheld. Such is the position of Victoria to-day. For years past it has existed on unnatural food. "Borrowed money " has been the only item on the national menu and at last the course has been thoroughly digested. And what result has it produced ? A weakened and tottering country whose people are on the brink of commercial ruin and who are now crying out for natural nourishment in the place of artificial substitu...

YARRACON. - o - (FRO~t OUR owN CORRESPONDENT. Mr. Froewen, who was recently ap. pointed Church of England Minister in this locality, is rapidly gaining in popu larity, the attendance at the several placee of worship within his district have materially improved of late, and a new impetus has been given to matters pertaining to the body. Improvements have been decided upon to the Trafalgar church, and an effort will very probably be made to make the surroundings of the Yarragon church a little more attractive. It will be necessary for Mr. Frowen to return to Collage in a couple of months, but Archdeacon Langley intimated some time ago that if the district could raise £200 per annum, he would appoint'an ordained minister to the district. It is now almost certain that this sum will be raised. 0 0 0 0 The Government evidently intend to form a village settlement in the reserve near the township, and known as the "township reserve."

Noseboard to Prevent Sucking. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
Noseboard to Prevent Sucking. When growing calves are allowed to run to. gather, they often acquire an injurious habitof sucking one another, and still more serious in its consequences is the trick, which some cows have, of self sucking. A very easily-made and effective restraint on such unimals is the wooden nose-jewel. It is made of wood, half an inch thick for calves and three-quarters of an inch for older animals. To shape the implement. two holes an inch in diameter are bored, a narrow notch sawed in the side to the holes. and thou with a knile the whole is fninboed off and the points rounded. The notch between the points is made just wide enough to alto the contrivance to slip snugly upon the cart lage between the nostrils of the animal that is to wear it. When properly ?iljssted it doconot interfere with granog, but n an etof?ctue.l har rier to obtaining surreptitious supplies of lacte4a Iuid. According to a celebrated professor of physiognomy, a small smouth shows great inde...

sis Science at Fault. A phrenologist who has been touring the country and giving lectures in the art tells th following "good one" on himself. He was ir the habit of inviting people of different avocations to come upon the stage and he would dilate upon and expound the peculiari ties of their cranial construction. He had come to that portion of his lecture where he dealt with the criminal form of crania and addressed the audience: " If there is any person present who at any time has been the inmate of a prison, he wil oblige by coming upon the platform." In response to this invitation a heavily built man went up. " You admit that you have been in prison. " I have, sir," was the unblushing answer° " Would you kindly tell us bow many, years you have epnbt behind prison bars?" "About twenty years." unhesitatingly replied the subject. "'Dear, dear," exclaimed the profesEor. " Will you sit down, please!" The subject eat -down in a chair at the centre of the stage. The 'rofessor ran his f...

The Man Smith. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
The 1Ian Smith. A leadnmg English paper (St. James's Gazette ") calmly tells a story which has a strangely-familiar hatg about it. A well-known cricketer, it says, a certain Mr A. S. Smith, was lately travelling in Spain with his wife, and was at Barcelona about the time of the recent eiploslons. The story proceeds thusly : Not hearing from him, his relations. who were becoming anxious, induced the" Foreign Office to telegraph to "the authorities" at Barcelona to wake inquiries. The first tele gram was somewhat In this form : ' Arthur Smith, British subject; in Bar celona during recent outrages. Kindly make enquiries and wire results. To this came the answer after an interval: " The man Smith as in Barcelona. He is being watched." And again, a little later, came a further telegraphic report from Barcelona: " The man Smith attempted to leave Bar celona last night-is now in custody." Shortly after Mr Smith himself wired to the Foreign Office : " Owing to your confounded telegram, have...
The Largest Diamond in the World. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
The Largest Diamond in the World. o The " Excelior," the largest diamond in the world, of which anillnutrationwasgivenin the " Pall .]all Budget" atthe time of its disa covery, is; now (says that paper) deposited in one of the safes of the Bank of England. It was faund in June last in the mines of Jagersfontein, Cape Colony, by Captain Edward Jorganson, the inspector of the mine. In his opinion, corroborated by that of thedirector, Mir Gifford, the " Excelsior is a stone of the purest water, and is worth about a million sterling. Exceptional pre cautions were taken to have it conveyed from the mine to the coast. A squasdron of the 16th Lancers guarded the carriage to Cape Town, from which it was brought to London in the gun.boat Antelope. It is fully 3 inches in height, and nearly Sin. in nreadth, weighing 971 carats, or about 7oz. troy.

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
AGRICULTURAL COLI?i?. " Why does the nsoter prefer the donkey to the small lswy r" This was a question which arose recently over the exhibition at Lamhsth Palane, London, where the long-eared brigade were under adjudication. The keep for the pony and the donkey is much the same, thoughl the latter will clear away a lot of garden rubbish like carrots' heads, and the refuse of a coter's barrow. This the pony would snift at. But the donkey is never a bolter, and so up the bye lanes he allows the owner to peddle his wares in the smaller alleys without any trouble foro the police, who would take him up for leaving a pony at large on the public streets. For this seaon, the "Live Stock Journal" re marle, there will always be a large number of rooters' do~tkeys in London. When sweating from any causencduly occurs in the horse it is always noticed that it is ac companied by waste of muscle, general debility and loss of tone. The sweating of horses is peculiar. He is the only hairy animal tha...

Never. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
Never. Never talk about your neighbor; He has faults, and so have you ! But if you must chat and goesip, Stick to what is right and true. Never judge by outward tokens Of the hidden inner man ; Dive beneath the crust of seeming Search the spirit if you can. Nevewr wound a friend or brother By a sharp or bitter word; Heart-ache is the worst of ailments With the fount of feeling stirred. Never overreach another Give good measure full and free, Scripture measure overflowing, As thou wouldst have him give to thee. Never drink of joy or pleasure That will leave a pang behind ; Better is an easy conscience Than to wear bright chains that bind. Never fear the speech of people When you do the best you canu; He who faces duty nobly Ever is the better man. --rs H. A. KiaDna.
