TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
TO TIHE EDITOR. Sma,-Having attended the rink on Wednesday last to witness the perfor foamance of "Our Boys" by the local amateurs, and also having thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment, I think it but right-and it is my privilege as a subscriber to your paper-to testify to the sterling manner in which the comedy was staged and played. Mly experience of acting and actors is of many years standing, and " Our Boys" is certainly a favorite of mine, and I have witnessed the play fully a score of times-by professionals and amateurs-but I never saw it worked to better advantage than the Warragul Club acted it on Wednesday evening. My object in writing is not to criticise, but to suggest to the club to extend their operations and also to take in members -honorary and playing-who would, I am sure, be proud to belong to the coterie. Surely with such apparent talent as we have in Warragul, there should be no difficulty in getting enough subscribing members to keep the club in scenery, without ...
THE ORIGIN OF BUTTERMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
THE ORIGIN OF BUTTERMAKING. There are two theories extant as to howr the making of butter was first discovered. One is that some members of a nomadic.tribe about the time of Moses, living chiefly by their wits, at one time thought they would go on a forage early one fine morning and ,teal some milk from a neighboring herd of cattle. So, before the owner of the herd awoke, they milked the cows and put the milk in their skin bags. Bleing distrubed in their opera tions, they throew themselves on their horses' back, and rode away, the owners of the cattle after them. Pro bably it was a long chase, and after hours, perhaps, they came home again, having escaped from their pursuers. When they opened the stul, to take out the milk they were suprised to find floating in it a peculair yellow substance which the Greeks named butter. For ages afterwards, before the churn was in vented, butter was made by agitating milk in bottles or skin bags. Another story is that once the wife of an Arabian c...

OUR LETTER BOX. '-4-- [We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressed bycorrespondents under - this heading.] FAIRMEIIS BENEFIT ASSOCIATION. TO THE EDITOR SIR,-In your issue of 1st inst, there appeared a letter, devising a scheme by which the higlh charges of the middlemen could De overcome. I perused the letter carefully and observed much in it that would commend the scheme to the pro ducer and consumer, but I have a sug. gestion to offer that I think would be likely to produce more satisfactory re sults, if properly carried out. It is that each district form an association and ap point its own director or directors, and that each member contribute an annual payment of £2 to defray the expenses of manager, etc. The whole of the money for' the sale of produce would go to the owner-no pickings to be deducted for commission or freight from station. It should be easy to get 500 imembers, especially in districts like Darnum, Hazeldean, Yarra...

THAT £30,000. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
THAT £30,000. When do the gentlemen who work the cable news at the other end mtend to give us the sequels to those messages concerning the miser who left 80,000 severeigns in rags and old jars, the mtan whohad been arrested as the real Jack the Ripper, or the other man (scion of an aristocratic and noble house) who had confessed to the crimes, who had been confined in a madhouse, and whose family influence was so great that the officers of the law were foiled ini their attempts to drag him therefrom. All these were sensational enough, forsooth; but as they appeared in one evening paper only, and then only once, the morning papers have liever a word thereanent, folks began to wonder whether the sensation hen : has been diligently hetchiug out these items at the other end.

THE LAND OF GOLD. ANOTHER RICH FIND AT COOLGARDIE. 12,000 OZ, IN SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
THE LAND OF GOLD. ANOTHER RICH FIND AT COOLGAR DIE. * -0-- 12,000 OZ, IN SIGHT. R. P, Murphy, R. Fowl, H. Barker and M. Lynch, prospectors, have arrived at Coolgardie from Mount Margarat bringing a small parcel of magnificent specimens. They describe the reef as being half gold, and the specimens to a great extent bear out this asserticn. They also brought 210oz. of gold, which was dollied from 561b. of stone of stone. The find is situated 22 miles south west of Mountain Flat, in diorite country with very little out crop. The reef when first discovered was only 6 inches in width, but at the present depth of 15 feet lias widened to 18 inches, and is enormously riob. The country is unsettled, but the prospectors feel sure that the reef is permanent, and is becoming richer with depth. The owners are so well satisfied with their prospects that they intend taking out a load of provisions, and to .work the property by dollying, They estimate that fully 12,000 oz. are in sight.
An Escaped Lunatic at Moe. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
An Escaped Lunatic at I~oe, About two and a half years ago a violent lunatic named Charles Boergstrom, a big powerful German, was arrested here after a desperate struggle with three men. He had burnt down his house, shot his horses, and chopped up his waggon, and was armed with a double-barrelled gun, heavily loaded, with which he intended to shoot three residents, when he was captured. He escaped from the Ballarat Asylum on the 19th nilt., and not a little consternation was caused amongst resi dents here when he made his appearance in the township on Monday. He came to the local bank to draw out a cash balance which had previously been handed over to the Master of Lunacy. He then stated his intention of proceeding direct to Melbourne to get satisfaction from the authorities, but when alittle way out of the town he doubled back and walked out to his previous selection, some five mile away. Constable Bretherton was out on duty at Tanjil on Tuesday, but on Tuesday morning he was infor...
Mining at Gembrook. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
MVlining at Gembrook. A further discovery in vicinity of Nan gana Creek by Mr. W. Hirst is reported. Shafts have been put down at several points along the line and prospects of about 2 dwt. of loose gold to the dish were washed and some rich specimens were found- Not much work has yet been done, but the indications are that the dyke improves with depth. The ground along the line on either side of the pros pectors' claim has been pegged out, and some of the parties have begun to test the value of their claims. Prospecting is being vigorously carried on in the ranges. An assay of the dyke etuff from the Madam Logan claim has given a return of 2 oz. 6 dwt. 6 gr. of gold per ton. Tenders have been invited for' the excava tion of a race 11 mile in length, and the necessary work in connection with the tram from the mine to the battery site is to be proceeded with at once. A -water wheel 25 feet in diameter and a 10-head battery are to be erected soon. Messrs. Goode and party, on the Ascot...
Erratic Road Surveys. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
Erratic Road Surveys. No effort should be spared by the Buln Buln council to obtain due con sideration of a motion passed at Cr. Stewart's suggestion last week. It was to the effect that plans of all roads in the Noojee, Navook and Neerim district, prepared by government surveyors, be submitted to the council for inspection before being approved of. Those who have any knowledge of the manner in which surveys have been made by the Government throughout Gippsland will see the wisdom of this proposal. It has been the rule to run surveys here, there and everywhere, without regard for grades or locality, and pay the surveyors good salaries for effecting them. Then the shire counclls have had to make practical roads, and in nearly all cases a good round sum for purchase of land for the purpose has been involved.
Export of Timber. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
Export of Timber. Rfepresentatives of the Sawmillers' Assocation saw thh Minister of Railways on Tuesday, and requested him to reduce the freight on colonial timber for export. The gentlemen who attended were Mr. BR.A. liobertson, of Wandong; Mr. C. I. Mason, of Warragul; Mr. W. B. Hoffmann. and Mr. S. it. Groom, secre tary of the Association. They explained that an export trade in Victorian timbers had now been lannched, and thought the Itailway department should encourage it. The railway freights were more than they were able to pay to comnplete successfully with other countries. Many saw-millers were now forced to send their timber to Melbourne by sea and the railways thus lost the traffic. If a 40 per cent. re duction were made in the freight it would suit them much better to patroniso the railhays. Mr. Mason stated that the department was losing £.50 a week in his case alone. The Minister replied that the department was now being run on com mercial principles, and it could not ...

"DON'T CARE A DAMN." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
"DON'T CARE A DAMN." -4- This paragraph should be interesting to mono-metallists and bi-metallists alike. " Thenew English dictionary," now publishing from the Oxford University press-the biggest dic tionary in the English language it will be when finished-gives the origin of that homelylittle word damn. When a man says he " don't eare a damn" for anything-which some men frequehtly do say--he simply means that he don't care a little bronze coin. worth about i600tlh part of an Indian Topee ! This ancient Indi4n, coin was called a damn, aud that is how we got our word, according to the '" N.E.D." It is evident that those who say they don't care a two.penny are quoting a pretty high price l A good deal of interest is being felt in aquatic circles with regard to the forth coming Univ?rsi boat race. The betting is 7 to 4 on Oxford.

An Assignment Action. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
An Assignment Action. At the Tarragon Court of Petty Sessions on Monday last, a case of local interest was heard. It appears that on the 29th` January, Benjamin Stanton, the licensee 'of the ' Duke of Wellington Hotel, .Yarragon, assigned all his estate for the benefit of his creditors to Mr. J. B. ,Fitton, as trustee. Previous to this, 'S. Davis and Co., of Melbourne, tailors, obtaineda judgment against Stanton and after the execution of the deed of assignment, caused an execution to be issued and some furniture and effects were seized to satisfy the warrant. The trustee claimed the goods as belonging to the estate and the court had to determine whether the arrangement held good as against the judgment. A number of objections were raised on behalf of the execution creditors as to the validity of of the deed of assignment, but were over. ruled by the court, which held that the goods were the property of the trustee and gave a verdict in his favor, with 8£3 ts costs. Mr. Gray appeare...

YARRAGON. THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
YARRACON. ----. (FROM OUR owN CORRESPONDENT.) -- -o- THE DROUGHT. We are wishing and waiting for a change in the weather, for matters are becoming serious with dairy men. Rain is needed, both to improve the pastures and replenish the water supply, both for domestic and stock purposes. It is not very encouraging for those whose whole dependence is the milk supply to find each week still worse than the pre ceding one in the way of drought, and tue cows dropping off one after another to lesser quantities of milk than usual at this season of the year. Still, I presume there remains nothing for it than to submit to the laws of nature and try to look happy. THE BLIGHT. Opthalmia has been very prevalent here of Iste, especially amongst the juvenile portion of our population. Indeed, our State-school Lhas for some time past been running at only half pressure, and even members of our adult population have not escaped the eye blight, many having been "laid up for repairs" for weeks from this ...
LADIES AT THE WICKETS. MATCH AT EAST MELBOURNE. AN INTERESTING DESCRIPTION [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 15 March 1895
LADIES AT THE WICKETS. MATCH AT EAST MELBOURNE. -0 AN INTERESTING DESCRIPTION (BY OSE OsEavEn" OF TsHE " ARGUs.") The ladies' cricket match played at East Melbourne on Wednesday was in one sense a disappointment, for one had no difficulty in hearing that a great many of those present were attracted by the rumor in circulation beforehand that a team in rational dress would play an irrational eleven. As a matter of fact the costumes, if pretty, were irrational in the extreme, the onlooker not finding even the solace of the baggy " bloomer." Each player wore a white flannel frock and loose blouse-the excessive looseness of the blouse being intended apparently to disguise the fact that the one article of dress which might be expected to seriously interfere with ladies playing cricket had been laid aside. The only whale bone used was in the wicket-keeper's pads. The ladies wore white straw hats and canvas shoes and were model teams as far as uniform was concerned, the distinguishing colo...
