POOWONG. A horse was sold out of the P'oowng pound recently for is. The animal was at one time the property of Sir o,Ihn Madden, but is now crippled. Its value was about 80s. Most settlers are losing cattle, Imany having lost from 20 to 10 headl out of moderate-sized herds. Cattle that were turned into the messmnate country early are doing fairly well but the later ones are dying in considerable numbers. The butter factories are alhnost at a standstill. Very little cream is coming forward; and no matter what the spring may be, the volume of business is not likely to be large till the end of the sunm mer, for the herds have been so decimated with the fire and the drought that it will take a long time to bring the dairies up to their full strength again; and the cattle to do this will have to be brought from outside. There is no scrub-cutting this season. Nearly all the remaining scrub land was burnt and is sown down. The full effects of the drought and bush fires are now being felt, ...

How to Sugar Chestnuts. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
How to Sugar Chestnuts. Take off the outer brown shell of the chestnuts and put them, when peeled, into boiling water, allowing them to boil quickly for a few minutes. Take them out, drain and skim them. Have ready a number of small wooden splints about the thickness of lucifer matches and about twice as long. Sharpen the points well and stick one into each chestnut. Boil the sugar to the crack, and when this is ready dip each chest nut into the sugar and turn it round and round by means of the splint, so that as the sugar cools it may be spread evenly over the nut. When the sugar begins to set, lay the chestnuts on a but tered slab and remove the splints. Wrap waxed paper around each, and they will keep well for some time. Sometimes it is advisable to dip the chestnuts a seoo ond time in:t the sugar, which should be kept warim, but not boiling, while the dipping is going on. Apother plan of sugaring chestnuts is to prepare them as before, or roast them without burn b ing or scorchi...

lYISCELLANEOUS. -----~ HOW TO USE SCRAPS OF BREAD. Economy Ia a Direction of Whleh Most loaelkeepers Are Ignorant. A covered stone jar filled with bread crumbs is indispensable to a well ap pointed pantry. When slices of neatly cut bread are left fronm a meal, pile them up until you have enough for a dish of toast. There are threeo ways of serving it.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
Since the formation of the Mlorwell shire six years ago, the council meet ings and shire offices have been at the Mechanic's Institute, and recently the council have been considering the advisibility of securing offttices of their own. In consequence of the financial position of the shire, however, and the fact that a good deal of money is urgently required to be spent upon the roads, a meeting of ratepayers was held on Tuesday, when a resolution was carried protesting against the proposal to erect shire buildings at present. The Premier promises a reduction in the Income Tax shortly. There is to be no further taxation and no further retrenchment.
NEERIM. A LUCKY QUARTETTE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
NEERIM. A LUCKY QUARTETTE. Ir William Hogan, who left this lo cality some two years ago for West Australia, has had a varied experience. Latterly he joined a party of prospectors, who took up a claim in the vinicity of Kanowna, and recent reports indicate that the party have hit upon some cx tremely rich country. The clahn is named The Doctor's and a writer in the " Kalgoorlie Miner" remarks that it is shewing up splendidly, and that after a shot was fired "a perfect jewel chamber was broken open." This individual pro ceeds to make one's mouth water with such statements as " the pug is stiff with precious metal," and that a piece the size of a peach "contained ten coarse pieces of gold." Another report in the "1 Kanowna Mail" says that llozs of gold were taken from three dishes of stuff, and that 31 tons yielded 70ozs. Well may he add that " Fortune has smiled on the party." The names of this lucky quart ette are Messrs Hogan, Wragg, Smith, and Nordstrom.
