'VDONALDS TRACK. -4------ (FeO OUR OWN COE c ESPOnENT) .) -0 The unusually prolonged drought of the past few weeks has caused the pasture to become very dry and milch cows are drying off in consequence. Scrub burning is nearly all done about here, and, although the weather has not been very dry, it has not been sufficiently warm for this purpose, therefore the burns are not all that could be desired. 0 0 0 0 The action of the Shire Council. in enforcihig By-law No 14 is universally condemmed in this district,and most of the dairyman with whom I hlav spoken since the issue of the notices crc resolved not to pay until compelled to do so, and rather than pay-a Gs. for the right to make butter at 5d. per lb many of them will give up the industry and stock with sheep.

Hints on Crinkled Paper Work. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Hints on Crinkled Paper Work, Crinkled paper certainly makes ideal shades both for small table and the now fashionable standard lamps, and our first engraving shows a pretty but very simply made "fluted" shade, suited to the former. To make this, use paper of two colors, say green and white. Make the white to do duty as a lining, laying it insidethe green. Cut a long strip of these two, measuring 7in. in width, and k~ft. in length. The portion cut off the length of the entire toll of paper will probably be sufficient for the ruche. For the Shade: Vandyke the lower edge of the paper and join it into a round by pasting the two short sides together. Now take a piece of white elastic about half an inch wide, and Glin. long; join the ends so as to makearing. Pleat the upper or straight edge of the paper into a nerice of small box-pleats, sewing them to the elastic. Arrange as low stitches as possible rather far apart so as not to interfere with the "stretch" ef the elastic. For the Ruche...
Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Ladies' Gossip, Some Scotchmen (Eal s an English writer) are reported to be angry because their country is becoming merged in England. We no longer say " British;" ' we say English; we talk of the power of England, the glory of England, the strength of England, as if England was Great Britain. I think that the Scotch have reason to be aggrieved. The Americans, even, who always used to say and write British, are now begiening to say English. As for me. I plead gulty to carelessness in this respect. Is it too ate to arrest this fast spreading habit: What belongs to England is English; whatbelongs to Scotland is Scottish; what belongs to our empire is British. We owe so much toScotland and the Scots that we must not, even in thought lessness, ignore their share in all that we do. Nonatioual hatred has so completnly died out as that of English and Scot. The fact might make us hopeful as egoards the Irish; but theu theScotch never setup a party of their own, bound to vote solid and unite...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
GENERAL EXTRACTS Some excellent Gladstone stories find their wayinto the Londoncorrespondence of the "Sheffield-Independent."' One of these illustrates Mr Gladstone's univer. sal knowledge. Two gentlemen, invited as guests at a table where Mr Gladstone was expected, made a wager that they would start a conversation on a subject about which even Mr Gladstone would know nothing. To accomplish this end they" read up" an ancient magazinu article on some unfamiliar subject con nected with Chinese manufactures. When the favorable.opportunity came the topic was started, and the two conspirators watched with amusement the growing in terest in the subject which Mr Glad stone's face betrayed. Finally he joined in the conversation, and their amusement was turned into gnashing of teeth-to speak figuratively-when Mr Gladstone said, "Ah, gentlemen, I perceive you have been reading an article I wrote in the a "Magazine some thirty or forty years ago," An interesting story is being told about a new...
The Hippometer. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
The Hippometer. The hippometer is the outcome of a French man's ingenuity. It works on very much the same principle as a pedometer, and will measure the distance a horse travels with wonderful exactitude. The hippomoter hass a clock movement for time and a hammer at one end of a lever to vibrate in unison with the horse's movements. The instrument first measures the time which elapses between the successive beats of the hoofs on the ground, oad secondly, the length of the horse's strides. As these are variable, the hippo. meteris rather a complicated piece of meoha niem, but it has proved wonderfully correct.
French Poets. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
French Poets. Although one hears so much of young French poets nowadays, in reality there do not appear to be any. M. Camille Doucet, the Perpetual Secretary of the Academy of Sciences, has (reports a London paper) had to make the mortify ing announcement that no poemn worthy of the name was sent in on "Africa opened up," which was the subject selected for this year's competition for the Prize for Poetry granted by the State. The prize, therefore, amounting to be tween one and two hundred pounds sterling, will not be awarded. The " young" poets are no longer young, a fact amusingly satarised by Pailleron in the comedy of "Loe .M?ndo o, l'on s'ennuie," where everybody is on the tin toe of expectation to see a young poet of great promise, who, when he appears, turns out to have grey whiskers and a bald head. To do. them justice, the poets referred to have at length publicly recognised the truth as regards them selves. In one of their favorite organs, where poems in the wildest metres,...
POPULAR SCIENCE Fasting Shellfish. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE Fasting Shellfish. The long spells of fa?ting which some of the land shell-fish can endure is well known. The case of the Helix desertorum, which lived for close on four years in a case in the British Museum. is a stock illustration of low-life vitality in every text book. Dr Stearns, of the Smithsonian Institution, publishes two instances of long abstinence from nutriment still more remarkable. One isof a specimen of Helix Veatchii-really a variety of H. areolnta-from Cerraos Island, off the coast of Lower California, which, on being placed in a box of moist earth, pro truded its body from the shell and commenced moving about, seemingly not much the worse for its six years' imprisonment in the natura list's cabinet. The same zooloist tells of some speceimens of Balimnus nalidior of the Southern district, which were as vigorous as ever after being boxed up for two years, two months and sixteen days, though to all ap pearance they might have lived for double or treble...
Chemical Ingredients of Man. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Chemical Ingredients of Man. A notable object of interest is described by the -' Scientific American" as among the con tents of the National Museum, Washington. It is an exhibit "showing the ingredients which go to make up the average man, weighing 11ilb.

Irrigating [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Irrigating The "sience" of irrigation is to apply. no more water than the soil will hold in suseensiou. The water dissolves the plant food in the soil, and is taken up by the roots. Directly the water begins to seep or run away from the soil, it carries with it allot the fertilising material or lant food contained in it, and thisis direct loss. If water is continuously running over and amongst the soil, the laud will quickly be im poverehed, and probably the roots of the plants will also bs injured. After trees have borne their fruit, there is no necessity to apply more water than is sufficient to keep them alive. The trees require a season of rest from growing, so that the wood may ripen, or become hard. By continually forcing on growth by means o water the trees will become weaL and pro. maturely aged. Water is a good thing, but too much of a good thing becomes an evil. The hardest lesson for a young irrigator to learn is when to leave off applying water. After im-. ating, and dir...
THE MITCHELL-CORBET FIGHT. ROUND ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
THE MITCHELL-CORBET FIGHT. RoUrD OxE. As the word was given, Corbett rose quickly irom his seat and advanced' to the centre of the ring. blitchell left his corner more leisurely, and he faced his opponent with a smile and a look of confidence. As the men sparred for an opening, the difference in build was most striking. Corbett, though he stood just a trifle wide, fairly towered over the Englishnran; and his immense advantage in teach was moat apparent. The Californian, too, appeared in the best. condition, the muscles on his back and arms shaowing prominently as he sparred with a quick action. Mitchell's movements were more deliberate, and almost before lhe was prepared Corbett landed theleft on the chin.Mitchell countered lightly on the other's ribs, and the American, swinging the right, missed, and the men clinched. Breaking away the men exchanged heavy blows in favor of Corbett, who was quicker in his deliveries than the Englishman. Mitchell feinted and swung his right on Corbet...

How Clipping Affects a Horst's Health. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
How Clipping Affects a H :rsa's Health, --o A veterinary surgeon of long practice and erperience says :-Some who speak on the sub ject try to make a' point by asserting that the home that has been clipped is more liable to catch cold than his brother who has not been introducedtotheclipper. This, however,is not correct,as in practice we find it is the unclipped animal that almost invariably tskes cold. According to the authorabove quoted clipping and singemt ahorserenders him far lees liable to catch cold than left in his natural state. There is no possible doubt but an animal's health is slowly, certainly, surely undermined by being permitted to wear thick, heavy hair, while at the same time he is compelled to work sohard or so fast as to produce copious perspira tis. The latter takes hours to dry, and fre quently breaksout afreah, thus greatly debili tating the animal' and reducing his strength. In" The Horse in the Stable and the Field" we flud the followingpaseage--" In former d...
Points of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Points of Interest. This fact stands out in the midst of the disastrous experienco of numerous sheep raisers in the past half dozen years: The price of wool has been like the Indian's description of the white man, "mighty onsartain," bint nore and more mutton lhas been consumed every year. The inhabitants of the United States are becoming a sheep eating peo ple, and you can depend on that. When wool does not pay, therefore, you can be sure that good fat mutton always wilL In western Colorado mutton brings a better price per pound than beef. The hogs of Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut bring the highest price-per head of those of any of the states. The year 1890 has added more than a thousand new trotters to the 23:30 list in America. A movement is now on fooe to cross tho American trotting horse with En glislihackneys. Itisexpected that from this cross an animal will result which will possess the speed of the trotter and the strength and size of the hackney. It is hoped to produc...

How to Preserve Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
How to Preserve Potatoes. A method of keeping potatoes from sprouting is given by Professor WV. A. Sanders, of Fresno county as follows:-" Sprinkle them with fine dairy salt, just enough so that an atom of the nalt will get into every potato eye, and I'll warrant them never to sprout. The salt also seems to exert antiseptic properties in prolong tug the time that the potatoes will keep to perfect condition. After you're sure that a minute speck of salt is in each and every eye you can sack or pile, or keep in any convenient way."
