BLOOMFIELD. A HARVEST SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 5 March 1895
BLOOMFIELD. A HARVEST SERVICE. o-0 On Sunday at Lower Bloomfield we had a harvest thanksgiving service in coutection with the Church of England, which was well attended:; In fact, the ordinary accomodation was a good deal below the require meats and chairs were kindly lent by MIr. Willis. As it is the first time a service of this kind has been held here, some ladies of the congregation deter mined to decorate the building in suitable style with flowers and ever crcens, and to arrange various fruits anud vegetables in an attractive form. The result must have amply repaid the workers for the very considerable trouble they put themselves to, for it was a complete success. Mrs. G. Beard tookecharge of the a'rangements, and with her three daughters spared no pains; the Misses Kroschel, Waltou and Ditterich also lent valuable aid. Mrs. Beard would like to thank thd many friends in the district who willingly sent in some very fine spccimens of produce. Apples, pears, grcengages, peaches, e...
PASSING THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
PASSING THOUGHTS. [Br T.m+ O'SHASEaR. . -0 For the second time the Warragul saw-mill boys have scored a big .win in the sweepstakes line. When the little syndicate drew Sheet Anchor some ten or a dozen years ago, everybody agreed that there was luck after all in the Gippsland forest. But that was in the days of "merrie Warragul," and money then floated about like water. 1 well recollect the " syndicate" appearing a few days after, each in a suit of bran new tailor-made clothes. The Club Hotel. too, took a trifle of the big cheque, and whatever the Sheet Anchor ball and supper cost, it was truly a most mag nificent affair. Before many weeks had passed nothing was left except memories of the glorious victory. Now, "Vani tas's" gain is really a bigger one than "Sheet Anchor's" by about £200, and wise counsellors have suggested to me that I should advise the lucky winners, instead of liquidating their gains at the "pubi" heretofore'alluded to, they should try and buy the thing out lock,...

The Neerim Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
The Neerim Tines. A good bit of enterprise has been dis. played by MIssrs. Stephens' Bros. of .Neerim South; who have cot a track six miles in length on the other side of the Latrobo river and along the Hawthorn Creek with its terminating point close to the village settlement at Noojee. Some very eneouraging prospects have recently been obtained by diggers'in the locality of Hawthorn and a considerable number of men are at present employed in the district. It is very probable, too, that some important developments will take place shortly in vicinity of Live Horse and Dead Horse Creeks, where some acceptable " pockets" of gold have of Into been found and where a very large body of auriferious material has been proved to exist.

The house belonged to a Mr. Faragher. and the'cost of doing the work was £4. Faragher in due course applied to the Council tor re-imbursement of this amount, but the Council, to the surprise of the general public, took up the position that inasmuch as the Health Officer had committed a breach of the act by order. ing the work to be done without consult ing thecouncil in the matter. Faragher must look to him for the money. Dr. Smith accordingly paid Faragher and at a meeting of the council held on Tuesday last applied for a refund of the amount. Cr- Winters considered it a disgrace to the council that its health officer had been permitted to pay the amount, and he moved that it be remunded.

Roads at Crossover. Mr Harris waited upon the Buln Buln Council on Tuesday to protest against the taking of the road agitated for at the pre vious meeting of Mr. Howst, situated at Crossover. It would unnecessarily cut up his land. The Engineer explained the merits of the different rpntes and recommended that the one leading past the 'corner of Harris's block be adopted. It would necessitate the removal of a few fruit trees. .MLr. Harris would agree to that if the road was not opened until July, when he could ren'ove his fruit trees. Mr. Howst complained that Mr. Harris had put him to much unnecessary incon venience, and if he had agreed to what he now sanctions, there need have been none of this trouble. He was quite satisfied with the route now proposed by the engi. neer, providing he could use it at once so as to get his timber on to his land to build his house. Mr. Harris agreed to provide Mr. Howst iwith accomodation for this pur pose and this was deemed satisfactory. Mer. Harr...

He soon became the butt of his oppoueets' jokes, and as there were 10 aspirants for the posi tion his life was an exaggerated burden. Once when the sandidates on horseback were going to meet by appointment in ora torical contest Singleton fell behind, deter mining no longer to submit to their rail lery. The party passed out of eight, leav ing the disconsolate candidate to his own reflections. A slight rain had fallen, and when the party crossed a broad, shallow creek one young fellow conceived the idea of a joke. "Suppose," saidhe, "thatwe take off our costs and wait until Singleton comes in sight, when we will put them on, giving to him the impression that the creek'is deep. We'll not say anything to him, and he will think that we want him to plunge into the water." The idea was acted on'. Pretty soon Sin gleton came along. S"That's all righ...

AT WARRAGUL. EXCESSIVE COMMISSION CHARGES. A FARMER PAYS £21 TO OBTAIN A LOAN OF £100. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 8 March 1895
AT: WARRAGUL. EXCESSIVE COMMISSION CHARGES. A FARMlER PAYS £21 TO OBTAIN A LOAN OF £100. The first witness called was John Picken, the local shire secre tary and formerly a farmer, who said his experiences in the Warragul district was that farmers were very much handicapped by the burden of their loans. About 90 per cent of the local farmers were borrowers. They paid 7 or 8 per cent. interest. When he was a farmer, about 12 years ago. he paid 7. per cent prices then being much better than now. Rates of interest had not come down in proportion to the prices of produce. The high prices the farmer paid for money was one of the prime causes as to his (the farmer's) non-success at present. The Credit Foncier system would be a good thing. He unhesi tatingly affirmed that the farmer must have cheap money if he was to succeed at all. To the Chairman: One of the principal drawbacks to the borrower at present was that, as a rule, lenders would not lend money for more than five years. The Cred...
