THE MATCH. THE GREATEST ON RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
THE MATCH. THE GREATEST ON RECO.RD, 0- The greatest cricket match in hi:btory was begun on the Melbourne Criiket ground, on Friday last, and the play promises to be equal to the im portance of the occasion. There never was such an attendcnce on an "off"' day. By the time the game was at its best-about 5 o'clock it was impossible to obtain a seat, :and favourable standing-places were diffi c'ult to find. There was such a crowd that Major Wardrill had no room to beam.: It is said that he had to go outside more than once to find scope for his smile. And the crowd was representative of Australia. There were crinketers from every point of the compass. On Saturday there were 30,000 spectators in attendance and the excitement was entense. By th a close of the second day's play the Victorians had finished their first innings for 414 and the Englishmen had made 200 for 4 wickets. Yesterday the crowd was again one of enormous proportions, and'at the time stumps were drawn the result of the th...
One Inquiring Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
One Inquiring Mind. "And now,' said the learned lecturer on geology, who had addressed a small but deeply attentive audience lt the vlllage hall, "I have tried to make these problems, abstruse as they may appear, and involving in their solution the best thoughts, the closest analysis and the most profound in "vestigatiohs of our ablest scientific men for many years-I' have tried, I say, to make them seem comparativelysimple and easily understood in the light of modern knowl edge. Before I close this lecture I shall be glad to answer any questions that may oc cur to you as to points that appear to need clearing up or that may have been over looked." There was a silence of a few moments, and then an anxious looking man in the rear of the hall rose. "I'would take it'as a favor," he said, "if you could tell me whether science has pro duced as yet any reliable and certain cure for warts"-Chicago Tribune.

Conditional. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
Conditional The journals of legislative bodies are in general- pretty dry reading. Here and there, however, one may come by chance uhpn a bit of wisdom or a touch of humor, conscious or unconscious, such as a Com panuon coirespondent has found in the Journal of the Iowa senate for 18S4. A bill was before the senate "to provide a fund from which to pay for sheep or oth er domestic animals killed or injured by dons." ::This bill Senator C- moved--whether in jest orearnest is not a matter of record -to amend: by' inserting the following clause: , "And shall sew up in a sack and drown or otherwise kill all pups under O mouths of age if it can be determined. that said pups will be likely to kill sheep when they grow Up to manhood."-Youth's Compan ion.
A Moe Mining Case. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
A Moe Mining Case. Much interest was taken in a mining case heard at Moe. the other day before Mr. C. A. C. Cresswell, P.M., at the warden's court- A miner named Wilson has owned a claim on the Tanjil for nearly 10 years, and registered a water right and water licence whereby to work his ground, which is situated on the Tanjil' River. Last month three pros pectors, named Vincent, Gullivar and Hughes, pegged out part of his claim and filled his tail race with dirt, thereby causing the claim to become flooded and unworkable. Wilson applied for an injunction restraining defendants from trespassing on his water right. The defence was that Wilson held more ground than he was entitled to. After taking a lot of evidence on both sides, the warden decided in favor of plaintiff. He said that if he did hold more grouid than he was entitled to defendants had no right to trespass on his claim without first having obtained sanction at the warden's court, and Ihe therefore granted the injunction, ...

Homestead Fire at South Warragul. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
Homestead Fire at South War ragul. A bush fire which was burning at South Warragul spread on Friday on to the pro perty of Mr. W, Smith. being formerly oc cupied by his fathe,r Mr. Joseph Smith, and destroyed a five-roomed house, barn, and piggeries. The furniture was saved. There is a sawmill on the property, and it was with the greatest difficulty that this was saved, the flames making rapid headway among the dead timber and cut ferns and being fanned by a fresh breeze blowing at the time. There is also a seven-roomed house close by, and this likewise had a very narrow escape. The loss [is estimated at about £300. The house was insured in the Royal Insurance Company for £90, and the barn and piggeries and other buildings were in surcdin the Victoria office for £300, The proportion, however, destroyed under this policy is put down at £200.
The Railway Accident Inquiry. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
The Railway Accident Inquiry. The departmental inquiry into the re cent railway accident at Jefferson's siding, on the Gippsland lile, has now been completed, and the evidence is under the consideration of the heads of branches. It has been ascertained that the damage to rolling-stock is much less than was hnticipited at the time of the accident ; indeed, Mr. Woodroffe states that all the necessary repairs can be effected for less than' t100. This is due to the way in which the engine was brought up under steam with the Westinghouse brake. The commissionerswish it to be understood that they are fully alive to the extreme utility of the Westinghouse brake. They point out that the necessary apparatus is now being applied to every piece of rolling stock that leaves the workshops, and steps are also being taken to apply it to all the trucks in use that are worth spend ing money upon. Instructions have been issued that on the lines with steep gardient trucks fitted with the Westing. hous...
FRESH TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
FRESH TAXATION. " Fresh taxation" is to the ear of the Treasurer the most euphonious and musical expression in the English language. He has only just succeeded in getting the income tax machinery in working order, and is now beginning to talk about " fresh taxation". He says, " Unless I am able to impose fresh taxation next year, which I don't want to do if I can avoid it, I shall not be able to give any of these votes next year." By " these votes," the Treasurer means the grants to agricultural societies, and he is taking, time by the forelock in making the announcement so early. When a similar proposal was made last year the objection was raised that the societies had entered into guarantees and prepared their prize lists, and that it was too late to abolish the grants. The Treasurer would no doubt prefer fresh taxation," but if he cannot get that, the grants must go,
THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. TUESDAY, MARCH 5TH, 1895. Lessons of the Depression. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
THE witr wmlIC Is IScoRroRArED B1ie VWarraguI F lt TUESDAY, MARCH 5Tu, 1895. Lessons. of the Depression., PE?IODS of industrial stress, depression in prices or failure of crops, frequently make themselves bitterly felt during their incidence, but invariably leave us better off than they find us. This is paradoxical, but true, for trouble and resistance have always been educational forces, making for development and t improvement. In fact, most of the 1 occurrences which men deplore, and which often bring them to the brink of despair are merely the agents and expedients of development when viewed in the light of history; and this applies with equal truth to the individual, the family, the nation, and the race. Civilisation itself is the product (the outcome) of human necessity. Man s has been raised in intelligence, taught to think and to reason through his sufferings and his wants; and it has 1 taken ages of misery to develop nine- f teenth century humanity with its I brilliant scie...
GOLD AT GEMBROOK. SOME RICH FINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
GOLD AT GEIVIBROOK. SOMJE RICH FINDS. -0 The excitement created by the re cent rich gold discoveries at Gembrook, does not seem to have abated in the slightest degree. During the past week a number of gentlemen interested in mining pursuits, have visited the field; further pegging out has taken place, and the requisite notices posted. The front of the North Gembrook post office just now presents the appearance of an advertising hoarding, there being a score or more schedules affixed thereon, and some of the titles proposed to be given to the intended ventures are somewhat "highfalutin' in their way, such as the "Lady Brassey," " The Lady Brassey Consols," "The Lord Brassey Syndicate," and such like high sounding titles. Judging by appearances and the names appended to the notices of applications, business in real earnest is meant. Further prospecting is being vigorously pushed on, and already rumors are afloat of lurther important discoveries, but those connectedwith themare reticen...
FROM MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
FROM MELBOURNE. (BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) -0--- Witnesses frequently make state ments which cannot be substantiated when giving evidence before com missions of enquiry. ' Only the other day a representative of the Amalga mated Society of Engineers informed the Tariff Commission that there was not a machine in the world that could net be made here. He was in favor of a prohibitive duty being placed on machinery, he said, and if such a duty were levied on sewing machines, cycles, etc., a local industry would spring up, and these articles could be supplied to the public at one-tbird less than the present cost. As an instance of how valueless this statement is, I will refer to the sewing machine industry only, In the United States of America, the very home and centre of sewing machines, there is a pro hibitive duty, and yet machines there similar to those sold in this country, are charged to the public £2 each more than in Melbourne. This very duty has been the origin of these enormou...
Top Grafting Worthless Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
Top Gmrfting Worthless Treers. Many farmers who have good orchards suffer loss by allowing a fen trees which bear worthless fruit to remain year after year. When this poor fruit is about to fall, the owner resolves to change the tops next spring by grafting, but before the time comes round he has forgotten his resolution and the tree remains. This may be prevented by following a sug gestion from Country Gentleman to place some permanent mark on them or by blazing the spare branches. In inserting the grafts, the common mistake should be avoided of setting them out at some distance from the cen ter, thus allowing much of the defective growth to remain after all. Select shobts never more than an inch or two in diameter and make short stumps of them for inserting the grafts. .A round and compact head may thus be given. If a sufficient number of grafts are set, the fruit may be changed in a very few years from the useless sorts to the best by this operation.

It, however, is one of the loveliest of allnew roses, and now being extensively planted in greenhouses for forcing for winter flowers. It has been tried for a couple of years, in.some cases extensively, and over much of the country, and reports of its behavior are generally very good.
