The Growing Malady of the Day. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
The Growing Malady of the Day. Dr William Erb, the famous psychologist of the University of Heidelberg, has just delivered, on the occasion of the anniversary of that institution, a lecture dealing with the question why growing nervousness is one of the features of our century. According to a report given by the "Daily News," Professor Erbsaid: "As the nervous system represents the basis of the whole vital energy, it is natural that all the events of life must affect it, and the great revolutions in political and economical, in social and religions life, and in scientific and artistic aims, could not fail to have a strong influence on the mind and brain of man. The most intense and common forms of nervousness are hysterics-which is also increasing among the male sex-hypo chondria, and, above all, neurasthenia. No organic or anatomic change in the nervous system has been proved by these diseases. They only represent abnormal conditions of the mind and brain. Neurasthenia is a disease...
The Antiquated Quadrille. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
The Antiquated Quadrille. The latest news from Berlin is that the Emperor William is bent on changing the character of the dances in good society. He is tired of quadrilles; they are too antiquated and too monotonous. Of course skirt dancing is out of the questiunat the CourtoftheHohenzollerns, and the puzzle-is what -to- substitute for the dreary quadrilles. The Em peror (according to the " Westminster Gazette") has had an idea-lance gavottes. He- kept it a secret for some time, and then he. sent to the Opera House. The ballet-master came. There was a consultation, and the CountHoch berg, assisting thereat, gave both the benefit of.his own experience and advice. The result was that the following day "four couples of choregraphic artists" arrived from the Opera House and danced before the Emperor and the Court. The dance was a complete success, and in a very short time the "dreary and anti, quated quadrille" will disappear from the programme of Court balls.

THE THIRTEEN CLUB. AN "UNLUCKY" DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
THE THIRTEEN CLUB. AN " UNLUCKY " DINNER. --·o-- No they are not lunatics-the thirteen groups of thirteen gentlemen who dined at thirteen tables in Room 13 of Holborn Resturant on Saturday, the 13th of January. They- were thel Thirteen Club; and their object, like that of the boy who marched whistling through the churchyard, was to show that they were not afraid. Perhaps there was more superstition than they would care toadmit in the very vigour of their protests against superstitions. They combined everything that was ' unlucky.' They wore green neck ties, and button holes of little Japanese skeletons with a coffin-lid. background. At the smashing of a mirrow they defiled under a ladder in the dining-room. There every knife and fork was crossed; the salt-cellars were coffin-shaped, with a tomb-stone back, bearing the epitaph, .To the memory of many senseless Super stitions, Killed by the Londoin Thirteen Club, 189?.' The salt spoolis were minature sexton's spades. Plaster of Paris ...
BIG JACK AND CHARLIE WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
BIG JACK AND CHARLIE WHITE. The day is in July, and the hour mid. afternoon. The situation is a frontier town in the shadows of grim old mountains-a collection of shantiee, tents and dug-outs, all facing the one long and narrow street, up and down which the mail coaches travel as they come and go. The typical frontier town as it was, but never will be again. The type of town thathas vanished with the herds of buffalo and the countless acres of unclaimed land. In the sixties and seventies the town came first-law and order next. In the eighties law and order began to take the place of the gun and the terror. In the sixties men who refused to drink with a stranger were shot dead and the bartender dragged the corpse clear of the door. In those days each town had i's terror, and it was a matter of pride with him to see his victims buried and headboards erected with his tally-marks. In the eighties the terrors disappeared from sight, and the cow boys held up the town at intervals. To-day ...
A Happy Community. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
A Happy Community. 0 The theories of certain social reformers are to be seen in actual working in the little community of Klingenbcrg-on-the Main, in Germany. In the neighbor hood of this torn (says the "Daily News") are .valuable pits of fireproof clay, which'the authorities in days gone by were far-sighted enough to retain as public property, instead of allowing them to be owned by individuals. They are worked by the municipality for the public benefit. The result is thatKlin r enbergis one of the happiest places in Europe. Not only do the profits on the day snuffice to cover all local and Imperial taxation, but there is a . considerable surplus, the bulk of which is divided amongst the inhabitants. In addition, a present of fifteen marks is made this year to every young man who is begin ning his military service. It is sad but true that the man who once becomes deaf seldom enjoys a happy hear after. Mr 3f'Bride : " They say that poor Vine biddle is dying by inches." lrsl'Bride(wi...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Br Jomr PmvrsansNe. I used to be told when a youngster that there was no such thing as a royalroad to learning; that princes had to study if they wanted to get knowledge, and that, on somes' occasions they got wal!opped if they didn't I have readin history-books that, as a rule. a " whipping boy " was kept in most royal nurseries, who got flogged when His Royal Highness went wrong, but that there were frequently con scientious tutors, who insisted on their princely charges taking their own gruel, and prettyhandsomely ,too. But, if there be no royal road, there is in this country what one might call a ministerial read, ie., a path to knowledge especially laid down for Ministers of the Crown. An ordinary member of parliament is supposed to know a little on many subjects. Sometimes more and some times less. His constituents are very confiding in this respect. They take a lot for granted. In the case of a Minister of the Crown it is different ; no sooner does he become possessed of that...

Boiled Bones. The digestor refusefrom boiling.down works, where allthe fat is taken away, and the gela tine, etc., is manufactured into "extract of meat" is still of considerable value as a manure for wheat-fields and for land that is deficient in potash. A sample of such refuse has recently " been analysed by the Department of Agriculture in New South Wales, and is calculated to be worth £5 10s, per ton. It contained:--Mois ture, 8"GS; volatile and organic matter, 29*24 (euanl to nitrogen, 3"283; ammonia, 3.986); sand, 2'S86 calcium, phosphate, 51 91 (contain. ing phosphoric acid, 23'77); other lime as carbonate, 5".

HINTS ON ADVERTISING [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
HINTS ON ADVERTISING -4-- Advertisipg is not to be done by fits and starts, a little at a time, in a timid, scared kin:d of way, as if afraid of being caught e:t it. It should be regarded as one of the neelssary cx pelses of a business, and should be as regular as rent, fuel or clerk hire. It should Ie well donls; there is such a thing as doing advertitin so cheaply that no one finds out th;it it is being done at all. If you have a goodl business you should advertise, lest competitors should take advantage of the great lever and outstrip you in the race. If your business is sniall you should advertise, and let the public know where you are anid what you have to sell, that they may collue and buy. Trying to do business without adver tising is hke Inmaing faces ill the dark yln may know what you are about, iout. others do not.
