THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
IHE WIDE WORLD; 0o- Hardly a man leaves the colors who dces not answer the anxions query of his elicer, as to how he is going to earn a living, with the stereotyped formula, "Oh, I've a good job waiting for me, thank you, sir." He has been so long accustomed to find his food served to the minute, his clothes found for him, his pocket-monoy made over at regular intervals, that he has forgotten that such things as cold, hunger, or want exist. He goes light-heartedly from his regiment, where, if he happens to ba in India, he has serrants to re liave him of much of the drudgery of existence, to some place where he learns too late that his deferredpsy, which at one time seemed a fortune, is not al-Flicient to keephim till heesn ined an openingyand that inplace of having everything provided for him, he has both to think and to work for himself. The "Cologne Gazette" publisikrs a curious story of General de Bauffhe-ont, whose dasth- was recently announced. Ac cording to, that pper, General...
Football in the States. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Football in the States, It appears to be the fact that the football mania in the Staten is even more ardent than it is in -England G(ays the " Manchester Guardi?n'") ,University matches like that between Yale and Princeton are played at New York, and the gate money at the last match amounted to 50,000 dol. A "Professor in a well.known college" writes that "generally the tesms are maee up of men of whom many are in college solely forfootball purposes, hired and salaried with the proceeds of gate money. Apparently profesaionalismhaa gone even farther than with us. At all events wekcep it out of the Universities. To lovers of the game, howeeror, this is not the most interesting aspect of American football. ' The brutal violence with which it is played in the States cannot justly be laid at the door of uorby. The Americans have'spoeied and britalired the Rugbr game by a change which would make an old Rug. beatn exclaim with horror-This iv the " in. teference principle" orthe "flying wed...

A. RUSSIAN HORROR, The "Kolnische Volhzeitung," I Romas Catholic organ at Berlin, pblishes from a trustworthy source some eicke-ing d.etils of the massacre at Krosche, in the Gorcrnn nt of hsovno, in Ptussian Poland.

Sir George Elliot. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Sir George Elliot. Sir George Elliot, "the bannis pit laddie," whose death is recorded, wns born on Waterloo Day, ISlS. He was a Gateahead boy, to whom the trap-door of a pit proved the avenue to fortune, but he himself has been heard to say that there was far more enjoyment and real happiness in acquiring knowledge for its own aske than for the sake of pecuniary gain. The know ledge he o industriously acquired, however, brought him far more than its own reward. His anccess as a coal owner began in 1910. When Messrs Packhouse and Mounsey pur chased, on his advice, the Washington CGl liery, near Durham, Sir George took equal shares with them. Three years later he took the leases of the extensive coal mines at Unsworth, which at first appeared unremunerative ; but when the lower seamn was reached, containing gas coal of the highest quality, the speculation proved most successful. In 1S63-1 he became pro prietor of the Penshawe Colliery, where 35 years before he had served as a hewer w...
Madam Sarah Bernhardt. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Madam Sarah Bernhardt. A law case against the "Evenement" newspaper, in which Madame Sarah B' r' hardt is the plaintiff, throws some light upon French journalistic methods. Last September, when Madame Sarah Bernhardt was in Rio de Janeiro, ehe was robbed of jewels to the value of L10,000 sterling, and a ma who was suspeocted of the robbery was put on his trial for it. Directly news oI this reached Europe, the " Evenement" published a pretended " interview" with the great actress, in which she was mode to say that she had not lost any jewe' at all,' but that the whole thing was an advertisement. Soon aiter this article reached South America, the proceedings against the accused man wers discontinued. In her statement of the facts preesnted to the Court, Madams Ssr I~rnhardt, who describes herself as the widow of hi. Jacques Damala, and of 5iS Boulevard Peireir, P'ari, de. clares that she was never inter: viewed by anyone from the Evenement, and that the alleged conversation with her i...

The Matabele Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
The MLatabele Campaign, -0 - A long account of the -tatabele campaign which the "Times" publishes from the pen of MrGerald Paget is very graphio and in teresting. The mingled bravery and super etition of the Matabete come out very clearly. The former quality has already been noticed. Of the latter, the following is a picturesque illustration: "They had only caught us up the day before, and had intended to attack at 10 o'clock in the evening, but were frightened by the rockets, explaining that they thought we were talking to the stars." But this superstitious respect for the white wizaras was not universal. "A handful of boys' was the description of the company's forces given by one of the enemy. On the subiect of the wounded Mr Paget's article throwe some further light. Here are a couple of passage :-" In going round the bush afterwards we came upon an induna, evidently of high rank (as he wore spure, carried a pistol, and had plenty of mealles for his horse), hanging dead from a tr...
Russian Duties on Trousseau. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Russian Duties on Trousseau. --o-o A Berlin correspondent writes to a-L.ondon paper :-At the ptesent moment, when com" . mcerial negotiations with Russia are in pro gross, the following facts serve as a grsphiu illustration of the way duties are levied at the Russian frontier. In August, a lady, a German subject, married a Russian, who re sides in the Baltic provinces. Immediately after the wedding they left for their home in Reval. Here at the first Russian Cistom House, the travellers' luggage was examined namely, onsof two small trunks with the gentleman's wearing apparel, five or six boxes and five chests, the wife's dowry con slating of clothes, boots andshoes, a dinnerser vice, knives and forks, some books and written papers, and small wedding presents from relatives and friends. The underlinen was embroidered with the lady's monogram and had bsen washed. The porcelain, knives and forks, &c., all bore monograms. In Reval the boxes and chests were opened. Two boxes with...
Jones's Suicide. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Jones's Suicide. The " Daily News " thus comments on the suicide of a " distinguished " Vic torian :--The system of capital punish ment has received a blow by the suicide of the public executioner of Victoria, Australia. This tender-bearted functionary has cut his throat rather then hang a woman now lying under sentence of death. She is a baby farmer by profession, and she was convicted of tke murder of a child. Her calling, if ilot her crime, would in ordinarycir cumstances preclude compassion, yet her sex has been enough to make the execu tioner feel a loathing for his office. A protest from that quarter will be more effective than from any other, and it will have great weight with those who rogard capital punishment .as even more de orading to the community than it is dreadful to the criminal. here is a thoroughly seasoned hand who, in on instance at least, finds it altogether too much for him, and who had rather be slain than slay. The defence of the system has generally assumed...
Accident to Troopships. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Accident to Troopships. I do not think that adequate notice has been taken of the absolutely- scanda lous sequence of accidents to our troop ships, remarks a writer in the " World." Since the trooping seasonbegan three of Her Majesty's troopships have broken down-the Crocodile, the Snrapis and the Malabar. The last case is peculiarly bad. The MIalabar, on her voyage from Queenstown to Bombay, with 1,700 souls on board, hias broken down three times, and is still lying at Malta. She broke her crank-shaft for the first time when a few miles from Malta, went into the dockyard there for repairs, sailed again after a week's delay ; broke down again, and returned; was again "repaired," and resumed her voyage, and again put back on 19th December, to be laid up again in Malta for another fortnight. If we are to judge of the state of our war vessels by the condition of our troopships, it is notonly quantity, but quality, that we may be alarmed about. The re peated breakdown of the Malabar is ...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. Mr Frank Hawthorn, who was with the Coutts.Duvalli Ceznpan: in India, has recently returned to ye'dney. Wien at Colombo he visited the gr.ave of the late Mr Phil leck, for the purpose of placing a wreath thereon. Mr Iawthorn states he found the grave utterly neglected, an. without oven a name, whilst ha adds, " The only stono on the grave 1 bro, ht away in my pocket." A pluoc Hall syndicate is staled to have offered iMr John Barns L0O per night for half an hour's speech on any subject that he might choose to select. MIile. Bartho does not aitcgathar regret her unacquaintance with the Englisr. tongue, as she cannot quarrel with her fellossartistsi in strange lands, nor receive" inane compli ments, as the composers of such hesitate about putting them through the prosaic medium of translation.

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
GENERAL EXTRACTS. A 'locbhOilit who is called upon to pick. a "street-door lock should take some means of ascertaining whether the person who employs him is really the. occupier of the place to which he gains access. By neglecting this ob vious precaution, a locksmith carrying on business in Paris, in the Boulevard Rochechouart, has (according to the Paris correspondent of a London paper) got himself into serious trouble. A gentlemanly-looking man came to him and said:-"I live at 157 Rue du Fanu bourg Poissonuiero, on the sixth floor and unfortunately I have lost my key. Please come and take off the lock and make a fresh. key for me." The unwary i tradesman did as he was bidden, and took away the lock, promising to return with the key the following morning. When he lid return, he was astounded at his reception. A gentleman he bad s never seen before rushed at "him, seized r him by the throat, and called him "thief" and "burglar." As soon as he could explain, he did 'so, but he was d...
