I THE COMING INDUSTRY. FROZEN MEAT EXPORT TRADE. --0- LECTURE AT WVARRAGUL BY MR. HOTSON. .o LARGE AND REPRESENTATIVE MEETING. SPEECH BY THE BISHOP OF MELBOURNE. A very large and appreciative audience assembled in the Public Hall, Warragul, on Wednesday evening, to hear a lecture on the "Frozen Meat Export Trade," delivered by Mr. John Hotson, of the firm of Turnbull, Hotson and Co., lessees of the New port Freezing Works. The farmers were, naturally, strongly in evidence, and there was also a goodly proportion of ladies present. The attendance, in fact, was more numerous and more representative than at any similar meeting for a long time past, and clearly demonstrated the amount of popular interest taken in this impor tant industry. The President of the Shire, Councillor R. H. Smyth, occupied the chair, and was supported on the platform by the Bishop of Melbourne, who was on a visit to the town in connection with his Gippsland tour, and who was officially invited by President Smyth...
A French Spy on German Prisons. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
A French Spy on Germani Prisons. --- A Frenchman named Klein, who has just been released after undergoing a long term of imprisonment in Germany as a spy, gives a very uninviting description of life in Ger men prisons. Klein has jus: returned to Bar-le-Due, where his family redsde. On the 11th of February, 15S7, he was arrested at Strasbourg, where he was de tained forfive months awaiting his trial. At the end of that time he was taken to Leipzic, where he was tried, found guilty, and een tenced to six years' hard labor. Soon after wards he was removed to a prison at Halle on-Saale. For four years, according to his story, he was not allowed to see or speak to anyone, so that his reason seemed to be im paired, and he was removed, irst to a mad house at Berlin, then to another at Stephans. feld. He was finally liberated on the 17th of this ir.onth. At the prison of Halle, Klein occupied a collabout twelve oubic metres in size, with one small window in it; and his bed was a plank with ...
Sleeping Axioms. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Sleeping Axioms. Sunlight is good for everything but feathers. STh beat number of persons to each bed is one. owa w ith heavy hangings, either above or below the bed. Beware of a dusty, musty carpet; better ?weetness and a hare floor. Donot fail to provide some means for venti lation during the night. Keep the head cool rhilee sleoeping, but not by a draught of cold air tailing upon it. If a folding bed must be used, contrive sorm way to keep it aired and wholesome. Let the pillor be high enough to bring the head in a natural position, no moro or less. Thorou-hly air the sleeping room every day; air the bedling and beds as often as possible. A dark, out-of.the-way, unwholesome corner is no more fitted for a sleeping room than for a parlor. A feather bed which has done Esrrice for a generation or two is hardly a desirable thing upon which to sleep.-Good Housekeeping.
Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
Ladies' Gossip. We understand, rays an American ,aper, that it is definitely arranged that the marriageo of the famous young jockey, Mornington Can. non, with Miss E. Dennett, of the Park, Not. tingham. shall take place on Thursday, 11th January, at the old Parish Chnsich, St. Mary Abbotts, Kensington. The ceremony, which is to be of a quiet dscription. in consee-sonce of the lamented death recently of Mr Dennett, father of the bride elect, will be solemnised at two o'clock. We hear that the young couple will spend their honeymoon at Brighton prior to taking up temporary quarters at South. ampton until a temporary residence can be found inthe near vicinity of Danebury, for which establishment Morey Cannon will, of course, continue to ride at all times when his services are available, though there are certain races mentioned in his agreement with Kings. clere in which John Porter's stable will hold the first claim.

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
HERE AND THERE. By John Peerybinole. &nbsp; &nbsp; Dot is not naturally an easily-frightened woman. Barring the customary feminine objections to a mouse, and a slight ner- vousness in connection with a cockroach or a tarantula, I might call her coura- geous. I am convinced that, armed with a mop and a bucket of water, she would face a burglar, especially if he tried to come near one of the children. I have known her to brave a rate-collector, and on one occasion— a very sad one—an officer of the law, as he called himself (I called him a bailiff)—was compelled to decamp in the face of her decided refusal to open the door. But &nbsp; there is one thing of which she is frightened and that is an anarchist, &nbsp; or what she believes to be an anachist. &nbsp; Within a short distance of our humble &nbsp; abode—freehold, but unsaleable, there &nbsp; lives a highly respectable gentlewoman— a cut above the ordinary "lady,"' who has bee...
WOMAN'S WORLD IN PARAGRAPHS. When Women Have a Vote—What Will Happen Then. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 2 March 1894
WOMAN'S WORLD IN PARAGRAPHS. When Women Have a Vote—What Will Happen Then. When women have a vote, and a mem- ber of the senate or honse of representa- tives of a state or of the nation is charged with grossly and notoriously immoral conduct, and the charges are proved against him, he will be expelled from his seat and from political life forever. When women have a vote, saloon keepers will not be members of school boards or be permitted to hold wide open their dens of destruction next door to or on the same block with the schoolhouse. On the contrary, women will be mem- bers of school boards themselves and control the same in the interest of econ- omy, constantly improving education, honesty and equal pay for equal work to teachers of both sexes. They will see &nbsp; to it that the streets are clean, safe and well lighted, or they will know the rea- son why. They will also see to it that at proper intervals throughout every town and city there is a plot set off for a public...
Burglar Proof Safe Quickly Melted. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 6 March 1894
I~urstar Proof Safe Quickly Melted. Mr. Swan, the English electrician, de clared recently that he had seen electric al blowpipes capable of mnlting the stoutest iron so rapidly that to'meltinto a fire and burglar proof safe with this instrument would be the work of only a few minutes and would be both an easy and noiseless operation. As, however, it would require a 40-horsepower engine to operate such a scientific tool, banks need be under no apprehension from this .mode of attack on their vaults.-New York Telegram.
Grief of a Pet Pigeon. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 6 March 1894
Griefof r I'ct Pigeon. One morning ono of the two pet pi geons belonging to my father was found upon the highroad dead, its body bearing marks of injury, but from what causnoe we never knew. We carried the dead body home and buried it in a sunny and quiet spot in the garden. For three days the surviving pigeon with untiring energy karched the country far and near for its mate, but in vain. It refused to touch food, and even the influence which my father usually exercised over it was gone. On the third day we found it dead in the dovcot, its little heart broken with grief by the loss of its lifelong companion. We buried it beside its mate.-Cor. Lon don Spectator.

"Mighty good state that Georgia." "Ive hearn say so, but Sam can't a-bear it. Good lhids and good crops, but the people is too scrumptious." "How scrumptious?" he queried.

Fishermen's Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 6 March 1894
Fishermen's Superstitions. At tho beginning of the herring season the crew all try to seize the herring first on board, to see if it be male or female. If it is a male, their fishing may be ex pected to be a poor one; if a female, a good one. Sometimes, however,' the skipper secures it and hides it away, salt ing it and laying it past for the season. Tho boat must not be turned against the sun. Certain ;mimals considered of ill omen must not be spoken of in the boat, and ministers in this respect occupy the same place as rabbits, hares and pigs. Fishermen do not like to leun anything to a neighboring boat, lest their luck should go with it. If they lend a match, they will contrive-secretly if possible to break it andl keeppart, hoping thereby to retain their luck. Their dislike to have anything stolen is increase-c by the fear that the thief may have stolen their luck with it. To ask the question, "Where are you going'" of any one who is going on board is equivalent to de stroying a...
