Warragul Dramatic Club. In anothtr column will be found a short resume of the well-known 8-act comedy, "Our Boys," (written by H. J. Byron), which will be played in the Public-hall to-morrow evening, by the Warragul Amateurs, whohaveon several occasions appeared before the public with credit to themselves. This philanthropic little club, who number some nine or ten playing members, have assisted in all cases of charity since its inception-some 7 years ago-and have in the past donated min all some £8fa in charities. The present object of the club's performance is to provide a reversible box scene, which can be used at any time for any play the club chooses to produce-in all four sets. Mr. Morrison, whose artistic taste is well known, has been entrusted with this particular, and no donbt will execute the work satisfactorily. It is expected that the present performance will clear the club from debt, and also provide the "necessary" for future operations. The stage-manager, Mr. J. L. Pa...
The Subsidy Again. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 March 1895
The Subsidy Again. The municipal subsidy question was dis cussedby the Narracan Shire Council on Friday on the receptof the following com. tunoication from the Warragul Council, signed by Mr. .J. Picken, Shire Secre tary: "I have the honor, by direction of my council, to draw your attention to the attached schedule showing the manneur in which the much - reduced municipial endowment of #100,000 will now be divided. The figures have beenr taken from a Government returu, and altlhough, ofcourse, only aplproximuate are practi cally correct. irotw them you will see that tihe comparatively rich 2nd and 3rd class shires will receive amonrg them £74,0011, while tihe murs poorer 4th, 5th, and Oth class shires will only receive a total of £21,000.

Sale of Neerim Land. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 March 1895
Sals of Neerin Land. An important announcement appears in this issue in the name of Wim. Hamilton and Co.-the sale of the estate of the late Thomas Hogan, of Neerim, which has just been surveyed into town ship blocks, residential sites and small farms, and will be offered at public auction on Wednesday, April 3rd. So far as the local public are concertned, it is needless to comment on the advan-. tageously-situated position of the land, and still more unnecessary to comment on its wonderfully productive properties. The fact that it has produced from 12 to 10 tons of. potatoes to the acre is convincing testimony to its richness, and proves its capability of producing almost any crop in strikingly prolific returns. It is.moreover claimed to be the most lightly-timbered block in the district, is permanently watered by. creeks and springs, and also possesses the very enviable advantage of having the terminus of the proposed extension of the Neerin railway set apart on the estate.

THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. TUESDAY, MARCH 12TH, 1895. NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 March 1895
THE WJtarqgult guugdiar wrt WHICH IS ISCORPORLtTE, gile Warragul ýes. TUESDAY, MARCH 12rn, 1895. NOTES AND COMMENTS. It is one of the peculiarities of politicians, though one very easily explained, that when they are in opposition they howl for the other fellows to meet Parliament at once and call them traitors for causing any delay, and that when in office they estimate complacently that what the country requires is political tranquility, which can only be secured by the Government continuing to administer the affairs of the country during a prolonged recess. This of course is but ordinary human nature. It is peculiarly that of the present team. At the same time it must be admitted that they worked very hard last session. and are therefore entitled to a longer spell than most of their predecessors, and from what we hear they are going to take it. WhVat will you do when Parliament meets"? is the query put to Ministers. "Parlia ment hasn't met yet," is the reply sig nificant. As far ...

TURF AND FIELD. ST. PATRICK'S SPORTS. The handicaps in connection with St. Patrick's Sports, to be held at Warragul on Monday next, are pub lished in this issue and show that the entries are numerically of a very grati fying character. For St. Patrick's Day Handicap a score of competitors have signified their intention of entering the fray. Last year there were only 7 or 8 entries for this event. The increase is therefore very marked indeed. There are fifteen entries for the Quarter Mile Handicap-more than double the number received last year and-it is anticipated that the other events will fill up well. " One of the Saw Mill Boys" writes : Sir,-Allow me on behalf of the saw mill-boys to return our thanks to Tam O'Shanter and his kind coun sellors for theirofficiousnessin directing how we should spend the dividend accrued from the second horse Vanitas.

THE FROGS OF EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
THE FROCSOF EGYPT. We'are told that, as one of Pharoah's plagues, the . frogs, came up and covered the land: of Egypt. Many cesituries afterwards that human frog, thli'Manchurian, invaded Tartary. and his o olation s re in Aistralia a new Tartary, and in the present Chinese the new Manchurian who will cover Australia, And all these alarmists have now to sing exceedingly small, for the reason that the Chinaman has been proved in capable of war on his own ground, and, therefore. unable even to imagine his invasion of a foreign territory. The reason is not far to seek. The Manchvrian and the Tartar who made ndlch stubbon resistences were flesh eaters; they rode their horses usntil they died, and then ate the remains. But the Chinaman is weak, mainly ?ecause of his diet, and his long hereditament of oppression. The treatment of the wonderful machinery of the stomach makes the man, and he who follows the rule of his kind, and is as omnivorous as his teeth prove lie should be and no more,...
