Hiram Maxim's Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 1 March 1895
Hiram MIaxlms Youth. When Hiram Maxim, the famous in ventor, lived in Sangerville, anxious mammas used to warn their hopefuls not to play with "that wicked Maxim boy." In fact, young Maxim grew up under the doubtful reputation of being the very worst boy in the neighborhood. This isn't said for the purpose of en couraging any other Maino incorrigibles who are in the depths of their misdeeds. If Hiram h;:d been a perfectly good lit tlo boy and had devoted his time to studying his lessons, he might have had that flying machine all completed by this-time. painting in Abbot and was hired by D. D. Flynt. Ho was an artist with thi brush. One day a men called to see Flynt while the latter wasout. "There has been a man in to see you," said young Maxim. "What's his name?" "I dog't know, but that's how he looks," and the boy pointed to a board on which he had roughly daubed a face. "I forgot to ask him his name," said the boy, "and so I drew that." Flynt knew his man.-Lewiston Journal.

The Coming Show. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 1 March 1895
The Coming Show. There is likely to be an unusually extensive exhibition of machinery at the forthcoming show of the Buln Buln and Warragul Agicultural Society. Mr. C. S. Afileck, the secretary, informs us that Massey - Harris and Co. have entered one of their celebrated reaper ann binders and other machines, and that a promise has been made of an entry of one of those remarkably ingenious inventions known as tile Hoover Potato Digger. This machine has proved an unmistakable boon to farmers in every part of the world, and it is in general use wherever large areas of potatoes are under cultivation. The remarkable facility with which it up roots the tubers and casts them on one side, and the tops and weeds on the other, is simply astounding. We under stand that a trial will be made on an adjacent potato crop, and that the public will thus be given an opportunity of witnessing a very interesting and edify ing operation. All the arrangements in connection with the event are being satisf...

THE WITH WHICH I IINCO5PORTED .ItIDAY, MARCH 1sr, 1895. Local Apples for London. During the past few days a representa tive of the Melbourne agents of Messrs. Duthoit and Co., the well-known Covent Garden fruit salesmen, has been visiting the' Buln Bunln district with a view to making arrangements with the local orchardists for the export of apples to London in the present and future seasons. The agents trade under the name of the Direct Orchard Supply Company, who are prepared to make cash advances on the amount of freight required for any quantity of apples shipped in the cool chambers of any of the mail steamers, and have secured as much storage space as they could possibly obtain for the purpose. The trade, has hitherto been much hampered by exporters having to pay the freight, as even on a small lot of 100 cases £21 Os would have to be paid down. This difficulty the company is prepared to overcome by advancing the money themselves, and thus materially assist exporters in enlarg...

INDIGNANT POLICEMEN RESIGNATION OF MUNICIPAL APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 1 March 1895
INDIGNANT POLICEMEN RESIGNATION OF MUNICIPAL APPOINTMENTS. -0 The Wangaratta Borough Council has no paid officer to prosecute persons who may offend against its bye-laws, but a suggestion was made some years ago that the police should be appointed as inspectors to perform the necessary duties and thus be empowered to prosecute. The suggestion was adopted, and from that time the work of prosecuting offenders in such in stances as trespassing on the footpaths, allowing cattle to wander, and other minor offences which do not come within the scope of the Police Offences Act, has been undertaken by the police. The work is honorary, and it is stated. does not constitute part of the ordinary duty of the police, but their services are voluntarily rendered to the local government body for the purpose of enforcing a due observance of the bye laws. Recentlycomplaints were that the police have not been performing their duty as inspectors in a satisfactory manner of late, that they were dilatory...
SOUTH WARRAGUL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 1 March 1895
SOUTH WARRACUL -4-o--, (FROM OUR OWvN CORRESPONDENT.) -0- ' In this place the grass has almost entirely disappeared owing to the long drought and bush fires. There is hardly a farmer about here but what has suffered.. There have.,been miles acres of'grass. " Times are badenough for the poor farmer without having to turn-to and replace the fences lost through the fires. Threshing is almost finished, and returns are quite up to expectation. There has been about 1000 bags of grass-seed threshed between Geach ville, Ferndale and Sea View, and as the land is first-class the seed is of a superior quality. Disappointment is expressed at the Minister of Railways postponing the inspection of the Warragul to Leongatha line, and coaches and horses were ready awaiting his arrival some ten horses being brought all the way from Geachville on purpose to give the ministerial party a cross country ride. We shall expect the Minister only when we see him on the ground in the future. The Gold Creek Min...

Japan's Great Artist. M. izan is the name of Japan's great. est decorator of Satsuma art ware. A writer on the subject says Meizan is be yond question the first artist in Japan.

His Gentle Wit. She shook her head sadly when he had asked a fateful question. "I wish you were all the world," he sighed. "You said I was that to you once," she ventured coquettishly. "'Yes, but I don't thinkso now." "No, for all the world loves a lover," and his gentle wit won her over to a reconsideration of the question.-De troit'Free Press.

A BIT MIXED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
A BIT IVIXED. The difficulties of foreigners in deal ing with the English language always provide amusement, though frequently foreigners set an example to the natives. I was at a meeting of a chamber in Melbourne recently, and the only man presant who spoke grammatical English was a German, but they are not always so successful. A recent importation from Germany of sporting proclivities created much amusement among the bookmakers, for (being the victim of some wag) he went the rounds saying-" I wish to make some bets on Coffin for de Morgue Stakes. I am told he have a goot shance." Another German, paying his addresses. to a girl, wished to obtain the good officers of her sister, so he said, " I do lofe your sister, but I think she look so silly." This was not a success, so after a time he tried again, "I make myself some stuipids. I do not mean dat your sister look silly, nein; I tink she look sulky." The poor German lost his suit; but when he became better acquainted with the lang...
THE TEMPTED WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
THE TEMPTED WOMAN. There are some ways in which even a Christian woman may be tempted. An Otago lady attending with a friend an "Inglis fair" saw a winter jacket thot pleased her immensely, The price was satisfactory, and she rushed to try it on, but, as there were some difficulties in the way, suggested that her friend might wear it instead, just to see how it looked. Well the effect was a revelation-it fitted charm ingly, was so becoming and all, that, while the intending purchaser stood in rapture, the wearer of the jacket walked up to the counter and paid for it. saying, " Yes, it's such a perfect fit that I'r decided to buy it for myself." And now the only consolation the disappointed bargain-hunter has is to go about amongst the neighbours saying, "I always doubted whether that woman was a Christian. Now I know she's not."
