ONCE UPON A TIME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
ONCE UPON A TIME. Two frogs found themselves in a pail of milk, and they could not jump out. .One turned faTnt-hcarted, and said to the other, "Good-bye, I sink, I die." Said his nervy, nousy chumn. " Brace up, you duffer, keep. jumpin', and see what turns up." :. So they kept on jumping up and down all night, and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter, and, lo ! they escaped safe to land ! Applied to business, the froggy fable means this: The man who looks for bad times, and becomes dormant and faint-hearted directly the business outlook becomes cloudy, will not sur vive to see good times, for he lets a golden opportunity slip by. We have received for review the first number of the '" West Gippsland Gazette," a inew paper published at Warragul. The letterpress, being froml new type, is l:erfect, and the contents of the number display the energy and ability of the proprietors. The journal is an eight page one, and should have ;i lprosperous career. KlorPnObiura ...
A SEA VIEW WEDDING. MR. PURCELL AND MISS DWYER. AT ST, PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
A SEA VIEW WEDDING. MR. PURCELL AND MISS DWYER. AT ST, PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL. (FROM THE OBSERVER.) Your hopeful is out of his element in such social events, and was never cut out for a Society reporter. He cannot describe the attire of ladies, and would be more at home at a wake or barn dance than a vice-regal ball. But he could not resist an invitation to the wedding breakfast of a feminine fledgling of the Stormy Petrel, who was married by Father Coyne (who came from Warragul for the special purpose), at St. Patrick's Cathedral, on Wednesday morning, 1st June, the fortunate bride-groom being Mr. Pur cell, junior, a substantial farmer of Gippsland, nigh the region in which the father of the bride was lost for so many days and nights. After the ceremonyat the Cathedral, the wedding party proceeded to the Friendly Societies' Hotel, Langridge street, where Host and Hostess Nicholls had provided a tastefully laid-cut repast, to which about thirty ladies and gentlemen sat down. The patria...
FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
FARM NOTES. A writer in an E n;!i.-i? paper gives this recipe for preventing rust in car nations,-which lihe received from a gar dener in Germany. whose plants were unusually fine, and in healthy condition. He mixes two pounds of vitriol and four pounds of freshly-slaked lime in 27 gallons of water, and stirs well toge tlher until it is clear, not blue, and then he adds two pounds of sugar, and mixes all again. With this lie syringes his plants once a week, early in the day. The syringing should be done quickly, finely and evenly. A good plan to keep leaves and im purities on the roof from filling up the care troughs and conductors that lead to the cistern, is to place a piece of wire gauze on the edge of the roof, and have it wide enough so that it will hang over the trough.. When the leaves wash down the roof, the wire gauze will act much the same way as the Bnow sheds in the West act in protecting the rail roads from the snow slides. All rub bisih will be carried over and to the ...
GLADSTONE AS A HORSEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
GLADSTONE AS A HORSEM'AN. "The famous American horse-tamer," writes Mr Justin M'Carthy, in his Story~ of Gladstone's Life, "spoke of Mr Glad stone as one of the finest and boldest; riders he had ever seen-and Rurny was_, a man who, on such subjects, quite knew; what he was talking about. Years af ter, when Mr Gladstone was Chancellor of the Exchequer, he was taking his usual ride in the Park-Hyde Park-on a very spirited and even wild young horse. The horse plunged and ran away, -got off the ordinary track of riders and came along a spread of turf divid ed by rails and gateways of light and slender iron, and went stra!g::t over it. Mr Gladstone was apparently quite de te-mined to have the better of the horse. The moment the horse had leaped the gate the rider turned him round and put him at the gate again. Again he topped. it, and again his master turned him and made him go at it once more, and sur mount it yet another time. So it went on until the horse was fairly but very; harmless...

HORTICULTURAL. THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
HGRTICULTURAL. THE CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS. tention. As a general rule, they are very free rooting. There are two reasons why they require re-potting-one, that the pots they occupy are too full of roots to admit of the plant making more growth; and the other, that the soil and roots are not in good condition. If ferns are put into too large pots at the com mencement, the soil will become sour be fore the roots have time to occupy it, and the plants become unhealthy. It is much easier to grow terns--in fact, al most any plant-and keep them in good health when the root room afforded is only a little in excess of their require ments. The failure and ill-health of plants in many cases may he attributed to over-potting.' In potting, only per fectly clean pots should be t:sed, and good drainage is essential. The soil should also contain a fair proportion of powdered charcoal and silver sand. The charcoal will to a great extent counter act the effects of over-watering. In turn ing out ...
THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
THE FLOWER GARDEIS. Spaces in the flower border intended for seed sowing should be carefully pre pared, and the surface soil made .very fine, otherwise a great percentage of seed is lost, being unable to struggle through. Just now slugs and snails are proving very troublesome. Plenty of lime and soot must. be used -?to keIep them down. Herbaceous phloxes, when properly managed, make a fine show in the herbaceous border. Therd are two .-ections of the tall growing kinds, viz., the early flowering P. suffruticosa and the late P. decussata. By thinning out the shoots and liberal feeding, fine pyra midal trusses of flowers are obtained. It is a mistake to allow the plants to grow into large masses with ma abundance of shoots,. for the phlox is a strong grow ing plant, forming a mass of roots,whlch soon exhausts the soil. It is best to lift the plants every two years, and divide them Into pieces, having three or fouer growth buds. and plant them firmly Into rich soil. The present is a go...
WAX EXTRACTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 26 July 1898
TiAX EXTRACTING. Good lean beeswax always finds a ready sale.. Of the different kinds of wax-extractor in the market, very few are suited for the purpose; they are either too slow or too expensive. Wa-x extracting is such a messing job that it is-best done right..off, -sing as few of the kitchen utensils as possible, if one wishes to avoid getting into-.trouble with those in charge of that depairtment. Per haps the simplest, best, and readiest method of rendering wax is with -the washhouse boiler. Hailf-fill the boiler with clean rain water, and to every five gallons add one tablesp.donful of sul phuric acid (vitriol): This' separates the wax from certain, impurities, and imparts to it a rich color. Collect all the combs, and press them firmly into a clean empty sugar bag of a size suf ficient .to get inside the boiler, and tie the same firmly. Place a milk-pan or other dish in the bottom of the boiler before the bag of comnj is put in, so as to prevent it catching to the bottom, an...
