INDOOR HEATING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
INDOOR HEATING. Anu English :r?u whicil makes a spe cialty of indoor heating, have had con siderable success with a: novel :ppara tus which they have installed in seve ral schools. This is a heated hat and coat rack. for pullic buildings. and is particularly valu:able for schools at tended by small children. The (levice is made entirely of iron tubing, the hor izontal bars supporting the hat and coat pegs., while the upright tubes a:re connected with a supply of hot air which is allowed to circulate through the tubing. *The advantage of this ap paratus is appar)lent. as on wet days the clothes are dIried as they are hanging' on the pegs. and the heat from the tubes also warms the cloakroom in which the stand is pIlaced. When the wveather is dry, or there i- no necessity for the heat. the supply can he cut off as in any other heater.

THE DREAM OF THE SPANISH ADMIRAL. A.D. 1541. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
THE DREAM OF THE SPANISH ADMIRAL. A.D. 131L In slumber as the morning broke (It was our homeward voyage to S;pain) Methought I gave a parting look At the New W'orld beyond the main; The shores were low, and soft. and faint, Half purple mist and balf nirm land, On which the sunbeams seemed to paint The semblance of a fuamy strand. I dreamed I saw a hundred ships Where not a sail had gitr:ced before. And for chained hands and livid lipa I heard a new-born peoptle roar. To every mast a flag: was na:ild, No lion crest hut stripes and stars, And doep into the sea they saileed To wrestle wi;h us, old in vwarr. They clove our ~inks, they 'lomb the towers Our loftiest gallons proudly bore: They :rucek with uore tha n ortal rpower., Till Spatin herself could strike no ntore. And down the wined we drifted far, And to the shore our hulks were blown: The sea was thick with mast and spar. And Spain was shaken from her throne. And louder than the whirr;ng brine. And louder than the cannon's roar....

WALKING BY FAITH. (Condensed.) [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
WALKING BY FAITH. BY CHARLES VOYSEY, B._A. (Condensed.) We walk by faith and not by sight.-2 Cor. v., 7. It belongs only to thoughtful people to discern the enormous mischiefs which arise through a loose and ambiguous use of terms. Such misuse or abuse of terms arises in great measure from the paucity of language, but also much more often from lack of clearness in the mind of the speaker, who, not perceiving dif ferences where they really exist, will carelessly employ the same term to de note quite different ideas. Definition, however difficult and hazardous, ought always to be resorted to whenever there is the slightest chance of our not being understood in the same sense as our own. To give a homely example, suggested'by the proverb "Call a spade a spade," it would .ertainly mislead .a man to.say, "I had a spade in my hand at such a time,'" unless we were quite sure that he knew what kind of spade we were talking of Whether it were an instrument common ly used for digging, or one ...
AUNT JENNIE'S HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
AUNT JENNIE'S HONEY. lMiss Glen. who lived in a little cottage in the village of Nutdale, was kriown to all the village children as "Aunt Jen nie." She was not really aunt to any of them, but they had got into the habit of calling her so because Nora Flyn, a little girl who had lived next door to her, had always spoken of her as Aunt Jennie. Miss Glen had taught-her to do so,as soon as she could speak. "And you all may call her Aunt Jennie,." Nora had told them in the playground one day, "for I told her you would like to do so, and she said that you might." They were glad to hear this; they were very fond of -Miss Glen. for, though she was about forty, yet she was young-hearted and merry. The children were always pleased when they had a chance to talk to her, and she was so kind that they never felt in the least afraid to go to her when in any trouble. No; when Johnny Bless poked his stick into a wasps' nest, and three wasps flew out and stung his two s!sters,it was Aunt Jennie who,...

Young, J.P., Henry Hamilton, John Green, and William Irwin were charged with conspiring to defeat the ends of justice. Superintendent Smythe con ducted the case for the prosecution, and Mr. J. Gray appeared for the accused.
