About the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
About the Weather. In Eastern lands a man meeting his friend of a morning observes that " God is .reat," a proposition which, in that old ashioned society, no one is disposed to dispute. But among ourselves it is: "It's a fine day," or " Cold this morning," that comes moat readily to the lips, yet few people concern themselves with speculating why it is fine or cold or wet or dry, or realise how immensely the daily interest of life is contributed to by observation of natural phenomena and acquaintance with their cause. -Lord Rosebery dwelt not long ago on the amazing cheapness of literature and observed that one could buy the whole of "Pickwick" for 4d. It is a vast privilege, but surely it is still mare remarkable that for 2s Gd one can buy " Scott's Elementary MIcteorology,"con. taming the solution of that problem of the weather which hitherto through all the agee has been the most perplexing and engrossing of enigmas to mankind. "The wind bloweth where it listoth, but no man know...
Turf Telegram Frauds. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
Turf Telegram Frauds. d The trial on the first count of the three s men Frederick IHche, Joe Allen, Wood, and Richard Hacite, forconspiracy in connection with what are known as the Leeds Turf tele t gram frauds, has ended in the conviction of the two first-named prisoners. Their system was extremely simple, and I for a time it appears to have been successful Wood wasin the habit of wiring to Knight and Co., a firm of turf commission agents in Leeds, making bets with them on his own account, and the charge was that he had conspired with the two other prisoners, who were in the employment of the I firm,to waylay and destroy his telegrams if it should prove that he had lost his bet; whereas if nohe had won theywefe sinply to hand them I over to their employers in the regular way of duty. In this way it was alleged that no fewer than 123 such telegrams were made away. For the defence it was contended that the prosecutors had no property in the telegrams until they were brought to their ...
Timber Clothes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
Timber Clothes. A Hungarian has invented a Scheme for making textile fabrica oat of wood pulp. Strips of poplar bark are put into a boiler containing a olution of sulphuric acid, and after boiling they are rapidly dried in the open air. This done they are again damped and finally passed through a series of compli. cated rollers, whence the cellulose emerges a successful imitation of cloth or silk as do. aired. This queer Stuff is credited with equalling, both in appearance and durability, the real original material.
Are All the Five Senses Equally Developed at Birth? [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
-0 Are All the Five Senses Equally .Developed at Birth ? No. The only sense which is really do veloped to any extent at birth is that of tonoh-not the sense of pain, but the purely tactile senseo of feeling. At birth there is but a very slight development of smell and taste, and they are frequently confounded. Sounds are appreciable from the second day onwards. The sense of sight, though the stimulus of light is appreciable at birth, is the most tardy in development. Towards the fourth or filth week the movements of convergence and accommodation ?re notice. able, but it is not until ab3ut four months that colors are distinguished.

THE LADIES' UOLUMf. Why? Why aro the he skies so soft and blno, Oh, maiden, c.an you sayp Why sing the bids so ulear and sweet? Why speed the sunny hours so fleet On golden wings anray? Nay, ask mnot- I not know Why earth and sky with glory glow; But this I know-my lorer true , Is coming back to-day. Why droop the pallid lilies low? Oh, maiden, tell me why.

Nay, ask mo not-I cannot say Why skies hang dark and low to-day; But this I know-ah, this I know My lover's said goodbye. Eioon Prmwanna,.
POPULAR SCIENCE English the World Speech. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE English the World Speech. The advocates of English as the universal language have received a coadjutor from an unexpected quarter. There recently appeared in the "Proussieche Jahrbiicher" an article from Dr Schroer, advocating making the study of English obligatory in the schools. The re.eons asoigned for this are more in teresting than the proposition itself. The need of a universal language has long been felt. The effort to introduce Volapuk was a recognition of this, but Dr Schroer ocndemns any attempt to construct an artificial world speech. A language, he says, without historical development, literature or lingustio relations, will not be studied by any con siderable number of people until it becomes universal and hence it cannot become universal at all. This means that if we are to have a universal language it must be chosen from existing languages, and of course from the number of those that are widely diffused and spokenby great civilised nations. Attempts to...

Husband and Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
Husband and Wife. Among the applicants to Mr Lane at the North London Police Court, last month, was a lady who wanted to know whether she was entitled to shut the door on her husband, whom she described as [a worthless fellow who had been absent in Australia nineyeare, and had just returned. A gentleman who sat at the solicitors' table, a relative of the applicant, said she wished to be secured against the intrusion of herhusband. Mr Lane: "Haes the lady a separate estate?" The gentleman said she had. Mlr Lane: "Then probably the husband will bring an action for the restitu tion of conjugal rights. Under the old law, if the wife refused to to comply with that order, she would have been committed to prison, but about forty years ago one lady died in gaol, and the judgesthendiscontinued the practice. Then came thecaseof Mrs Weldon. She obtained a decree and insisted upon her husband return ing. To get'over the difficulty of a committal, Mr Justice Hannen adjourned the case for six mon...
HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
HINTS ON ADVERTISING Advertising is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scared kind of way, as if afraid of being caught at it. It should be regarded as one of the necessary ex penses of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should be well done; there is such a thing as doing advertising so cheaply that no one finds out that it is being done at all. If you have a good business you should advertise, lest competitors should take advantage of the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is small you should advertise, and let the public know where you are and what you hade to sell, that they may come and buy. Trying to do business without adver tising is like making faces in the dark; you may know what you are about, but others do not. The man who, without interruiition can keep his name before the public, is constantly informing possible cus toine's who he eis, where he, is to be fond, and' what l hQ is pre...

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
THE WIDE WORLD, A gentleman presented a parcel the P day at the railway station atBrie.Cot I Robert, and asked to have it regida at Vincennes. The railway oficial h weighed it said that it wsighed 32 ki;. grammes, and that as fractions o kilos reokoned as 10 kilos, the costof riage would be the same as if it weigh 10 kilos. The owner of the parcel seea extremely annoyed at this. 'Wait a minute," he said, and he ?epped out side, returning presently th abo 7 or 8 kilos of paving stones, whin he picked up at the station entrance. ehi he added to the percel, which, with the extra weight, was accepted at the rlte originally demanded. Doubtless ti*e Uat customer of the company thought be done a rather clever thing,, but his trin was abort-lived, for on arriving at V?cale he was, on peremptory telegraphic oria from Brie, arrested for stealing paving stoe and marched off to prison between two polics men. A curious procession, the Brighton con. pendent of a London paper says, made is way int...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
IIE3 EAND TIIRI! By Jols r Pars~ eGLsE I read the other day that some of the Labor Party were cominre to the conclu sion that the retrenchment policy of the Government was like FalstatTs Bill, too much "srck" and too little bread. There is truth in the joke. And pretty bitter truth too. It's about time, indeed, that those who are "charged with the destiniea ithis great and growing nation," as the Federation speakers say, should look round for some other method of making thiings meet than sending men to the right-about in every direction. The civil servant-" curled darling," as some people called hiim - served many purposes besides merely doing his duty or not doing it, as the case might be. In the first place he was more often grey than curled, elderthancurled, elderly than young, and married than celibate. He lived, as a rule, up to his income, and kept butcher, baker and a lot of other people going. As a carrier I know itand so do a lot of small tradesmen who wish to the Lord they...
GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
" GENERAL EXTRACTSi i" 0 A French writer strongly insits upon a h pacific arrangement of the burningAlsace Lorraine question on (says the " Euro o pean Mail") tEle following lines:--1, The fate of Alsace-Lorraine to be decided by the freely-expressed votes of the majority of the inhabitants of the conquered pro e vices ; 2, the rights of the minority ani of foreigners settled in the Reichisland to be guaranteed ; 3, in the event of terri s tory being ceded by Gemiany, the latter Power ehouldreceive fitting compensation, i and. finally, the ratification of a perma sent arbitration treaty between France e and Germany. T Irish Viesroys are stripped of their h sovereign attributes se soon as they reach f English waters. The fJllowing story is told by "Truth "' of Lord Houghton and a lady with whom he was acquainted. They both found themselves on board the Holyhead packet. During the voyage from Ireland the lady treated the Viceroy with ceremonial reapect. So soon, how a ever; as the pac...
FACTS AND FIGURES ABOUT VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 February 1894
FACTS AND FICURES ABOUT VESSELS. The use of steel for ship building was begun in 1879. The heaviest anchors weigh about seventy seven hunidredweight.
