Cricket and Temperance. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
Cricket and Temperance. A Goon deal of discussion has.ljeen going on since the test match was played, and during it, whether the same degree of sobriety ought not to be insisted upon in cricketers playing important engagements where the reputation of the country or provinces they represent is at stake, as from athletes engaged in other contests. When a man is training for a rowing match his liquor is carefully limited, and he is rarely allowed to take more than a pint and a half of any alcohol contained in fluid per day-and then it is usually beer. The course of train ing-undergone by a pugilist is still more severe, and the pathological conditions which prevent the exhibit ing of intoxicants to a trainee from whom extraordinary capacity is ex pected are well understood. .But cricketers, or at least many ol them, do not seem to consider it necessary that they should govern themsels' by the same rules ; and though as a whole its members set an excellent example by refusing to drink t...
TURF AND FIELD. THE HON. GEO. DAVIS IN A FIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
TURF AND' FIELD. THE HON. GEO. DAVIS IN A FIGHT The proceedings at the Newry races on Thursday were diversified by a few fights, which started over some dis pute as to whether Hughie was scratched or not for the Welter Handi cap. While Mr. C. R. Davis was up at the secretary's tent a Mr. Brown addressed some rather stronglanguage to Mr. Davis, which included calling him a - thief, with the result that a set-to took place between the two, and Mr. Brown, before the police could separate them, received very serious damage to his nasal organ. Mr. G. M. Davis then had a mill with one of the Mr. Wrights, and the Hon. Geo. Davis rushed in to take his sons away, and some scrimmaging went on until the seven-foot policeman from Newry waded in over the crowd, and made another separation. The' crowd then went down to where ladies were seated in the vehicles, and another set-to took place, and what-with hats and blood flying about, and women and children screaming, matters were lively.

Some who think thlemselves wondrous wise, say:--' I don't advertise. I keep good stuff, and that's my advertisement.' But what is the use of keeping good stuiff if you also keep it a secret that you have this good stuff 'concealed' round about your premises.
The Neerim Road. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
The Neerim Road. The improvements now in progress on the main road from Neerim South to Neerint will have an immense influence on the future development of the district, which hitherto has been almost inaccess able during the winter months. When completed, the road-which skirts the property of Messrs Hogan Bros. to be sold next month by Wm. Hamilton and Co,-will have the appearance of a carriage drive, and with the exception of a slight break opposite Mr. Harrison's residence, the whole seven miles will be metalled and cleared. The cost of clear. ing, forming and metalling the track varies from £400 to £500 a mile, which is considered a very low cost indeed. Most of the metal is obtained right on or near the roadway. Without the help of the loan money it would have been utterly impossible to effect such a much.needed transformation, and the Neerim people are consequently grateful to their repre sentatives at the Buln 3uln Council table for their persistence ins demanding a special l...
Anniversary Celebration at South Warragul. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
Anniversary Celebration at South Warragul. The supporters of the Wesleyan cause at South Warragul celebrated their anni versary on Wednesday by holding a tea and public meeting in the church. The tea was generously provided by the ladies ofthe congregation, and was patronised by a larger company than has been present at similar gatherings for several years past. The building, in fact, was packed to its utmost limits, and among the number was a considerable proportion of Warragul visitors. Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. E. Cropley, assisted by the Misses Cropley, Topp and Smith, attended to the wants of. the company, and Mr. Fraser and Miss Minnie Cropley tastefully carried out the work of decora. tion. At the meeting subsequently held, Mr. G. W. Anderson-president of the shire-presided, and after a few opening remarks, addresses were delivered by the Rev. J. H. Angus, Mr. J. T. Cropley, and Mr. Weir, of Neerim South. The report and balance sheet was also read, and showed that .du...
Harvest Thanksgiving at Warragul. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
Harvest Thanksgiving at Warragul. The annual harvest thanksgiving services were held in the Warragul Wesleyan Church on Sunday last, and were conducted by the Rev. J. Thomas. The building had been decorated with a profusion of maize and rushes and ferns and flowers, in addition to a thoroughly representative display of the fruits of the earth, and looked exceedingly pretty. Unfortunately, however, the weather was wet and cold., and the attendance was materially reduced in consequence. Earnest sermons, suitable to the occasion, were preached by the pastor, and a special anthem was sung by the choir at each service, with Ur. Walker presiding at the organ.
Warragul Racing Club. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
Warragdl Racing Club. A meeting of the committee of the Warragul Racing Club was hold at the Commercial Hotel on Friday evening and was attended by Mr. J. Gray (in the chair), Dr. Hayes, and Messrs. Clinton, Plouright, Howell. Durham, Matchett, Fowler and E. A. C. Staveley. Tenders were received for the clearing and form ing of the course, and it was resolved to hold them over for a fortnight, and in the meantime, to canvass the town and dis trict for subscriptions and thus ascertain the amount of money likely to be forth coming. Other matters were talked over in an informal sort of way and the hope was expressed that the public would liberally respond to the appeal about to be made.
Thursday's Show. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
Thursday's Show. The arrangements for the show in con nection with the local Agricultural Society, to. be held at Buln Buln, on Thursday, are rapidly approaching completion, and it is anticipated that the entries will total fully 500. The business establishments at Warraunl will close at 12 o'clock, and thus enable those who are engaged ill them to catch the 12.30 train from Warra, gul to Buln Buln, where conveyances will be in waiting to take visitors to the ground at a nominal charge. It will be seen from the advertiseulent that other trains will run at convenient times; and that there will be no dillieulty in getting back as a satisfactory hour in the evening. The only doubtful element at present is the weather, bhut with a fine day and a representative colleotion of exhibits, there should be a successful show and a large attendance of the general public,
NEERIM. ODDFELLOWS CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
NEERIM. ODDFELLOWS CONCERT. - o--- The members of the Oddfellows Lodge at Neerim South gave further evidence of their activity by giving a concertin the Neerim North Mechanics Institute on Wednesday evening, before a very large company. The chair was occupied by Mr, G. Davis, Grand Master of the lodge, and the programme was a varied and attractive one and was evidently appreciated by the audience, the items being almost entirely contributed by local talent. The accompaniments were played by Mr, J. Dodds, of Warragul, and Miss Wilkinson, of Neerim. Thefollowing is the complete programme ren dered: PROGRAMME. Piano solo, .. Mr. J. Dodds Song, " The last Rose of Summer," Miss Ray Song, " Come down and open the door love," (comic) (encore), Mr. Bains.

The Potato Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
The Potato Crop. The low price now ruling for potatoes is a matter of serious concern to the Neerii farmers, especially those who have planted largely in expectation that last season's rates would be fairly main tained. If prices do not recover very materially the consequences will be almost disastrous to those who are depend ing very largely on the tuber. There is no doubt that the Neerimfarmers should endeavor to put at least a portion of the land under crops having less tendency to extreme quotations. It is a matter for surprise that Neerim farmers have not entered largely upon the cultivation of fibre yielding plants.

SWEARING DROVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
SWEARING DROVERS. A new phase of the great railway problem was presented at the meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Com mittee on Railways last week. Mr. Craven thought that an objection to narrow-gauge railways was the greater difficulty of trucking cattle. Mr. Van de Velde, an advocate of narrow.gauge lines, said that they carried cattle in the trucks in France. Mr. Craven, however, pointed out that stockmen would probably swear if they could only get four bullocks in a truck instead of ten. The witness was apparently floored. At any rate he could not at once suggest any appliance for moderating the language of the Australian drover under these new trucking conditions. Hence the advantage of having country members familiar with drovers' ways on the Railways Committee.
HOW EMIN PASHA WAS SLAIN. A TRAGIC INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
HOW EMIN PASHA WAS SLAIN. A TRAGIC INCIDENT. -0- The death of Emin Pasha is an old story now, but hitherto the details have not been published. The United States agent in the Congo Free State, Mr. Mohan, supplies these to the February number of the " Century," as gathered from two of the natives who took part in the murder : Mamba and I (said Mr. Mohun's informant) were standing next to Pasha, and at a sign from the chief we seized him by the arms as he was sitting in his chair. He turned and asked what we meant. Kinena looked at him and said, "Pasha, you have got to die !" Emin turned, and ex claimed rather angrily, " What do you mean ? Is this a joke ? . . . Who are you that you can give orders for a man to die ?" Kinena replied. "I do not give the orders. I receive them from Kibonge, who is my chief; and when Kibonge gives an order to me I obey it." Emin struggled and tried to get at his reaolver, but he was held fast. He was then shown Kibonge's letter ordering his murder: Emin ...
WHAT SELECTORS HAVE TO DO. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
WHAT SELECTORS HAVE TO DO. The following is a copy of the letter usually sent by the secretary of Lands to members of Parliament who ask for clemency on behalf of selectors in arrear: "Sir,-Adverting to letter lodged by you on behalf of Mr.- , of Coonooer East, asking for consideration as regards the payment of arrears of .96 due on his leasehold, I have the honor to inform you that it will be necessary for him to for ward a statement setting forth his actual position, showing the value of his im provements, stock, plant, and the amount he owes irrespective of rents due to the Crown, and to whom he is indebted; also to inform you that as he may be called upon to verify same by statutory declaration, the greatest care should be exercised to ensure accuracy.-I have, &e., Tnos.

PASSING THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
PASSING THOUGHTS. By Taso O'SarŽ-TER. -0 Ever so many years ago, in the s?s of the great "boom," the Skating 4rk was built and opened with a oroeous carnival. I was fortunately resent then and saw, amid the quaintly attired competitors for the many valuable prizes, a charming litt!e girl whose face was quite strange to me. I forget exactly what she won, but I was delighted to find that the same young lady appeared in the same building on Wednesday last in Oaur Boys," and did her part so well that I was sorry that another prize could not be awarded her. After the long pleasant spell of dry weather, it was rather a mystery to me why the rain should have started to fall on Thursday last. I certainly eard no thunder, nor was I aware of any heavy artillery being discharged at day. However, on opening the "Argus" on Friday morning the r?uble was speedily explained. The .N.A. conference had sat that day, and their jocular cnstom was whenever a visitor was announced-no matter ho-deafening a...

£1,000,000 FOR A HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
£1,000,000 FOR A HOUSE. Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt, the New York millionaire and railway king, has just opened his new palace with a grand ball. This modest home. which is to shelter about ten people during six months of the year, and to remain closed during the other six, stands at the corner of Fifty-seventh-street and Fifth-avenue, and has cost its owner £1,000,000. It is of Spanish design outside, built of grey stone, with red facings, turrets, and battlements. It is three stories high with- a lofty attic. The ball-room is the largest private ball-room in New York, being 75ft. long by 50ft. wide, decorated in white and gold Louis XIV style. The ceil ing cost a fortune, and is made in the form of a double cone, covered with painted nymphs and cupids. Round the cornices are delicately modelled flowers, each with an electric light in its heart, while an immense crystal chandelier hangs from the centre. The walls on the night of the opening ball were covered from floor to ceding with ...
FARM AND GARDEN SOIL MOISTURE AND SOIL TILLAGE. An Important Matter Made Plain With Illustrations. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 19 March 1895
SOIL MOISTURE AND SOIL TILLAGE. An Important Matter BIade PlailWith llustat luns farally takes the wvteaay. yister;han the clouds supply it. Our crops must depend for their needs more on the supply of moisture stored up in the great rrecr -oir beneath than on the rainfall during the main part of the growing season. TILLAGE BAD AND GoOD. With a good depth of reservoir on soils with porous subsoil, and consequently with a free movement of the soil water, down in winter and up in summer, and the economical use of soil moisture by the prevention of excessive evaporation, a continuous supply of moisture can be secured to the roots even in a dry season. The upward movement of the soil water by capillary action to be free requires compact but porous soil In freshly stir red soil the interstices are too large for such action, and here the upward move ment comes to a stop. In explanation of the foregoing is here reproduced a com munication from T. Greiner to Country Gentleman, in which he sa...
