?est (Sippstanu (aaete. WARRAGUL, AUGUST 2, 1898. The ratepayers of the THIE Warragul Shire have a WRanavUL very inadequate idea of SHII?E the amount of work and couscs,. time involved in the con duct of municipal govern ment by their representatives at the council table. Punctually at one o'clock at the last meeting councillors were at their places in the council chamber, and for nearly six hours their attention was concentrated upon the discussion of public business. Piles of correspondence dealing with all manner of subjects have to be gone through, and each case discussed and decided on its merits. Contracts have to be arranged for, and tenders submitted to the collective wisdom of councillors. Reports of the various municipal otficers--somuetimes lengthy and important documents--have to be carefully weighed, and instructions given when neccessary for carrying out the suggestions contained therein. The fair and impartial distribution of the shire's slender finances frequently en...

A TREE-FELLING INCIDENT. NARROW ESCAPE OF MR. C, SARGEANT, M.L.C. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
A TREE-FELLING INCI DENT. NARROW ESCAPE OF-A~IR..-C,.. SARGEANT, M.L.C. MIr. C. Sargeant, \M.L.C., had a miraculous escape last week from what might have been a fatal mishap. He was in the bush to the south of Darnum, in company with two fellers named Robert Smith and Robert Downey, engaged in selecting trees suitable for mining timber. The two men were felling a certain tree se lected by Mr. Sargeant, and just before it came to the ground he took up a position at the base of another tree, at what he considered a safe distance from the one being felled, and was joined by Smith a few seconds before the tree actually fell. It was a big tree, and came to the ground with such a terrible thud that the vibration dis lodged a large dead branch at the top of the tree, at the base of which Mnr. Sargeant and Smith were standing. The limb was from Gin to 9in in di ameter, and came to the ground with great force, bruising Mr. Sargeant on the shoulder and striking Smith on the head. When he saw ...

A BRITISH OFFICIAL EXPELLED [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
A BRITISH OFFICIAL EXPELLED The "Evening Journal" (New York), published on the Sth the following tele gram from St. Thomas: "Mr Walter Bett, secretary to the British Consulate at San Juan, has ar i'ved here, having received his pass ports and been expelled from Puerto rico by order of the Governor, General M?acias, on su:.plcion of having furnish ed the United States with information as to the mining of the harbor of San Juan. "Mr Bett was previously in a dungeon for 5i hours, and was grossly maltreat ed. Mr G. W. Crawford, British Con iul-General in Puertorico, formally pro tested, whereupon General Macias open ly accused the British colony in San Juan of being responsible for the dis closures with regard to the mines, bas ing his suspicions on the fact that the Consulate had undertaken the protec tion of American interests.

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
HERE AND THERE. Soene time ago I had casion to refer to the doings of those plarasites-of .::o cilty termed "battlers:" Itnfortunately they still thrive in this community, and there seems to be no end to their tlx trous artifices. A short time ago, when the railway authorities were mnaking it pretty warm for those who "forget" their tickets or otherwise try to impose on the railway revenue, I was struck 4by the in genious way in which one of these fel lows got himself out of a diiliculty. He had not observed the formality of ob taining a ticket, and as the train - it was one from a suburban racecourse approached a certain station he noticed the "flying gang" waiting to make their raid. In the twinkling of an eye he had announced his intention of collecting the tickets in the compartment "to facilitate the work of these poor devils of porters." Shortly after up came tlht porter with a "tickets ready, please," on his lips. whereupon he was met by the "battler" with the tickets so kind...
THINKING AND ARITHMETIC. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 2 August 1898
THINKING AND ARITHMETIC. As we understand Professor Lyle's complaint, it is that our boys and girls are not taught to understand the true application of mathematical rules--that., in point of fact, they are taught to re member,but not to think. 1The defect is by no means peculiarly Australian. We showed, a few months ago, that pre cisely the kind of complaint made here anent the art of reading aloud was be ing made in England. Now, as to arithmetic, we have the following: An incident related by a correspondent of the "Journal of Education" seems to show that the greatest need in our sys tem of technical instruction is for classes in common-sense. During a holiday on Dartmoor lhe met a lad of sixteen who had been seven years at school, and pro fessed special skill in mental arithmetic. The tourist put him this problem: " I walk four miles due north from my front door, and then three miles due south; how far am I from home?" "Twelve miles," was the prompt answer. The question was repe...

THE RAINBOW FEATHER OR, A TERRIBLE .PROPHECY. By FERGUS HUME. The author of the "Mystery of a Hansom Cab," etc., etc. CHAPTER XII.-I(Continued.) The residence of Miss Clyde was a long, low house, with whitewashed walls and a thatched roof, eminently pletu resque, but not at all practical. There was a homely flower-garden before it, filled with marigolds, sweetwilliams, southernwood and such-like old English flowers; these being the peculiar care of Mrs Drass,who blended gossip with hor ticulture. When Paul rode up to the gate, she was pottering about with a trowel in her hand, and came to the gate to meet him; but keeneyed Paul Mexton noted that she did not seem overpleased at his visit. "This is a surprise, Mr AMexton!" said she, as he alighted from his horse, and tied the reins to the gatepost. "It is rarely that you honor.us with a visit especially at so early an hour." "I must apologise for the hour," said Paul, entering the house. conducted by the ex-governess,"but I have to se...
