NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
NEERIM SOUTH. (FROM OUR OWN COBSRESPODENT) --0- Mr. Adcock delivered his popular lecture on the " Journey of Life," in aid of the funds of the local 'Wesleyan Church at Neerim NotAh, on Wednes day and Neerim South on Thursday evenings. Owing to the threatening nature of the weather on Wednesday, the attendance ivas somewhat small MIr. Adcock has a very happy and decidedly interesting way of delivering his lecture, and keeps *his audience in a continual ripple of laughter from beginning to end. He was evidently a large capacity for taking in the comical side of Nature. The Rev. I). 8, Lindsay, of Sale, and Chairman of the Gippsland District, occupied the chair and a very enjoyable evening was spent, and concluded with votes of thanks to the lecturer and chair man. o o o - o A very unfortunate and serious accident happened on Monday evening to an old resident of Neerim South, viz.. Mr. James Mayoh. It appears that Mr. Mayoh had been burning off logs in his paddock, and unfortunately s...
Vassar takes the Cake. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Vassar takes the Cake. -o She was a Vassar graduate and didn't know a little bit about housekeeping when ho married her last beau and settled down to domestio life. Her first order at the grocer's was a crusher, but that good man was used to all sorts of peaple, and could interpret Vassar as easily as plain English. " I want ten pounds of paralyzed sugar," she said, witha businessair. " Yes m. Anythinc elset" "Two cans of condemned milk." "Yes'm." He set *down "pulverised Eag," "condensed mla.' "Anything more, ma'u. '" "? bas of fre salt-be sure that it is fresh." " YeE'm. What next?" "A pound of desecrated codfish.' "Yes'm." He wrote glibly "desiccated cod." "Nothing more, ma'am? Here's some nice horseradish just in." " No,"' she said, with a sad wabble to her flexible voice, " it would be of no use, as we don't keep a horse." Then the grocer sat down on a kit of mackerel, and fanned himself with a patent washboard. Vassar had taken the cake. " l'rees."

A Thousand-Miles Ticket [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
A Thousand-Miles Ticket Ii you ask anyone who knows, he will tell you that thekind of invention whieh produces large fortunes is not a costly and complicated machine, however ingenious, but a small, cheap, usefnl article that everybody ne.ds. The contrivance, which is to produce :he fortune I am giving away is not a new device ; it is already popularin the United States. All that is necessary is to persuade, perhaps, a dozen men in Europe that it is a good thing. The rest is simple, and the person who gets the monopoly of this little article is a made man. The device is simply a Continental thousand mile book, good on all the rail ways of England and the Continent. In America the thousand mile book is in daily use, and is a very great convenience. Each railway issues its own thousand mile book,but doubtlesethe time will come there when these books will be good on all lines. Some railways issue these tickets in little books of 10, 50 or 100 pages, w ith 100. 20 or 10 miles on apage. ...

AGRICULTURAL OOLUMN. Manuring and Mulching ABpple, Pear and Other Fruit Trees. There is probably no part of tih care oc frc' trees less understood than that of furnLhig the proper hind of food, and in the right cc ditiva to be appropriated. Young trees ar oftcEn killed by over kindneso in placing large ,ocn tities of unfermented manures in t?i holes before planting, and around the bodis iof the trees afterwards. It should be distin:tly understood that both these practices ar:l .ky to prove injurious to the welfare and health of the trees, and it is admitted that unfer.ented manure of any kind should not be placed ce.ar the r6ota of any young tree. The aralycs of the ' woo of peao and apple trees show that potash, lime and phosphate of lime are the threeleading constituentL. .Ad that iof the ash of the fruit shows :o:ash, phospholic acid, soda, lime, uilphuri8c dcd, magnesia and a small quantity of iron and silicio acid. Thus the cultivator will ase the necessity of preparing some sp...
Breeding for the Show Ri[?]g. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Breeding for the Show Ri g. B" aIn J. Gnirstars. This sytesm his been one of the chief evic? in connection with cur dairy cattle. In the .Cat place, cattle, when r ry.youug, are so fed el .s' to appear plump aad square, that the -:;y matter in the blood is so early directed to ;he channel from which meat is produced as icsto be afterwards so easily diverted to the chE?ucl that leads to the production of milk : -nd heifers so fed are very apt to prove Ltr-rn. Should they breed at all, they too often !::rve themselves to be bad milkere, tar more li?bre t o diseaese when they wilt necessarily have to ,in e on the mere ordinary food of dairy roar. Breeders'whoso chief object is to we po,?is often turn their cows dry as soon as they :an after calving, so as to enable them to get po to what is termed show condition, a sure niei'od of destroying what milking qualities they r.ce possessei. I hary little hope of reform m tLis direction, unless judges are selected the ;ie capable of discernin...

Gcod Ham. To have ;ood smoked meats required ccc?!nt emoking. some have costly smoke houses b?lt, butthiissunnecessarr. A box or barrel with nails driven into the inner walls is sufl.icat. "But," says one man, " the meat gets he:ed, and it is such a trouble to make a smokae ?ndcr it." This has been the trouble, but itcau e.c~y be obviated, as shown in the cut.

Romancers of the Tower. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Romancers of the Tower. In what shall we put trust in this inquiring and sosptical nge ? If there is a historical objectdear to eightseers,and of unq uestioned authenticity,it is theheadsman'sazeandblocl -the latter bearing still its dismally sugges. tive cross cuts and bruises-whichare dailyex. exhibited to visitors to the Tower. But Viscount Dillon. in " The Antiquary," has some disquieting things to say on the question of .the genuinoness of these grim relics. As to one axe, it may bave done its deadly work upon Kil marnock and IIlmerino and the "oldfox" Lovat; but what of the " heading axe" shown as the veritable instrument used atthe execution of Anne Boleyn. The truthis that Anne Boleyn, like Catherine Howard, osu fered death by the sword, and a "' heading axe" does not appear in the Tower Inven tories before the year 16;79. Almost as well might we bo shown the pen with which King John "signed" Mapna Charts, in the face of the fact that the King did not sign, but only sealed t...
May be the Cause of Influenza. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
May be the Cause of Influenza. Messrs Grifliths and Lidell, two English chemists, in a communication to the French Academy of Sciences, intimate to that body the discovery of a ptomaine or poison, generated most likely by a bacillus, which may be the cause of mnfluenza. It is a white substance, crystallising in prismatic needles, soluble in water and feebly alkaline. Though found in the watery excretion of influeonz patients, and said to be a powerful poison capable of causing fever and death in a few hours, a more exhaustive inveetigation will be required before the conclusion is accepted that this is a ptomaine peculiar to influenza, far less the something accountable for so much mischief.
Fishes and Hot Water. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Fishes and Hot Water. Dr Lawrence IrImilton-has collected obser vations showin" that fishes can withstand a comparatively high temperature and live. Spal lanzani found river carp enjoying water at I06ddg. Fah., but they died when it was at l16deg. Fah. Saussure found eels in the hot springs (113deg. Fah.) of dice, Savoy. Dr Davy and others have found that trout, salmon, dace, tench and minnows die at temperatures of about 70deg. to 90deg. Fah. In India carp, perch, roach and Eone carnivorous fishes live em water from 00deg. to 115deg. Fah. Moreover, in certain hot spnngs of Barbary, fishes flourish at a temperature of 72deg. Fah., and at Manilsa in water at 187deg. Fab. IIumboldt states that while travellin" in South America he saw fishes thrown up alire from a volcano in water at 21Ideg. Fahb., but this is very hard to credit.
"Men are Deceivers Ever!" BUT THIS TIME A WOMAN WAS EQUAL TO THE OCCASION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
"Men are Deceivers Ever!' -o0 OUT THIS TIlE A WOMA" WAS EQ0UAL TO TILE OCCAScIO. I have a wooden leg. No one would know it. It has seldom troubled me. Sometimes, in fact, it it a convenience; in a crowded tram. ear, for instance. The stout lady who grinds her heel into one's toe enjoys only a fancied triumph overme,for my woolen leg is always tho prominent one on such occasions. Once, alas ! it stood in my way, as you shall see. I was engaged to a lovely girl. You can't think how gracefully I went down on my wooden knee and asked her to be mine. She used to wonder how I could hold her for such a length of time on my poor, longe-sufering knee. You see I couldn'tbear to tell her that she wasn't engaged to a whole man. She couldn't be expected immediately to see the advantages of a foot that could never have the gout, that could wear the tightest shoe with impunity, and that was exactly as much at her cervice as my more proper self. So I put it olF (not the leg, but my acltnowledgement...

This makes a small loaf. Quick oven. Iced biscuits are considered very dainty. Un fortunately their excellence is too often found only in their attractive appearance, which is simply the result of clever icing; , while the cakes inside are very inferior, dry and tastless. Theo are however, very easy to make good all the way through, and when prepared at home, there need be no doubt of their quality. They should be made of a good cake mixture which has been baked in a shallow tin with upright sides, and lined with buttered paper.

About Precious Stones. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
About Precious Stones, One of the rarest and most precious stones is the carbuncle, which is sometimes mistaken for theruby, fromn whichit differs by the intensity of itsfires, produced by an internal lustre of gold, while under the purple of the ruby there only appeardottings of azure of lacquer. The virtues of the carbunucle are resistance to fire, preservation of the eyes, promotion of pleasant dreams, creation of happy illusions, and an antidote against impure air. Ethiopia produced the most precious ancient carbuncles. The Chaldeans regarded this stone as a powerful talisman. Le-end makes the eyes of dragons out of carbunces. Garcia ab Horte, physician of one of the viceroys of India, speaks of carbuncles which he saw in the palace of that prince which were so extraordinary in their brilliancy that they seemed "like red-hot coals in the midst of darkness." Louis Vertoman reports that the i?ing of Pegu wore an enormous one, which t night appeared to hbe be lighted up with the su...
The English Mint [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
The English Mint: Some idea of the extent of the operations at the English Mint may be obtained from thefaet that during the year 1892 the gold bullion melted andcast into bars for sovereigns and half-sovereigns amounted to no less than 359Stons. The total amount of metal gold, silver and bronzs dealt with in the meltieg.pot was G12 tons. The bronze which is usedfor the pence, halfpence and farthings is composed of a mixture of copper, tiu and zinc; the silver coinage contains a small alloy of copper; and the gold is of the standard degree of fineness, thats 22 partsoutof the 21 are pure. The goldis obtained from two sources: it either consists of ingots sent from the Bank -of England, or of light gold coins returned from circulation on account of their depreciation.
Burning Coal Dust [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Burning Ceal Dust The enormous amount of fuel necessary to drive a large steamship makes owners willing to experiment with any economical expedient that may be introduced to them. Coaldust is now being tried by the two well-known German lines, the North German Lloyd and the Ham. burg-American, whose steamers burn on an average from 250 to 300 tons per day. Coal dust is what may be almost called a waste pro duct. Many schemes for utilising it have been tried, but none of them have proved brilliantly successful. In the present case it is proposed to inject the dust into the furnace through a nozzle, as though it were gas or petroleum, and if in this form it will produce as much heat as the more solid forms of coal, a great end will be gained.
POPULAR SCIENCE. Comets. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
POPULAR SCOENCES Comets, A comet is generally regarded as composed of extremely tenuous cosmic dust. But it must be very fine indeed since stars can be seen twinkling throughout a few thousand miles' thickness of it. Professor Schaeberle, while not attempting to revive the old lotion of the terrible results which would happen were a comet to strike our earth, has promulgated a moremechanical explanation of these heavenly messengers. The coronal streams which he considered are ejected from the sun penetrate far into space, some crossing one another. On the atmosphere of a cometstriking one of these streams it will " in projection" be in the form of luminous, nearly concentric, arc, the greatest brilliancy being near the most ad. uanced part of each stratum. And we fancy the "mechanical theory" cannot be any the more acceptable to electricians- by reason of I.M Schaeberle undertaking to explain the auroraby the agency of coronal streams.

As smooth as glass the winding river liee, Save where some bnking pine lears up, or where A fluted shallow breaks the blinding glare, Or poising fisher dives to snatch hie price. With bare, brown breast, the sta·wa:t fa.en hand swings His rhythmic cradle thro' the gram, or stands With ringing whetstone in his brawny hLande.
