OUR LETTER BOX. [We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressed by correspondents under this heading.] WARRAGUL DISTRICT HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
OUR LETTER BOX.. [We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressedby correspondents under this heading.1 WARRAGUL DISTBICT IIOS PITAL. TO THE EDITOR 81n,-I understand that the Warra gul Hospital Committee is about to make a strenuous effort to pay off the balance of the liability, and open the institution, by inaugurating concerts, balls, and such-like amusements. Now, whilst agreeing with the committee in their laudable endeavor to do this good thing, I think the first step should take the form of getting guaranteed annual subscribers, so as to have some foundation to go upon if the institution is to be opened, as it is absurd to think that the Hospital can be kept up by the proceeds of amuse ments alone. It is no doubt owing to the proceeds of entertainments that the building was erected, and, in the future there is no doubt that the same source of revenue will be called into play, but this perpetual drain will in time dry up the fountai...
THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. TUESDAY, MARCH 26TH, 1895. A Heavy Bullock. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
TP~C THE Wariiagat Ouaudian WITH WHICH IS ICOIPORATED TUESDAY, MARCH 26T, 1815. t A Heavy Bullock. The live weight of a bullock is evi dentlydifficult to guess. In the competi tion at the agricultural show at Buln Baln for a prize offered for the nearest t guess to the weight of a bullock, provided for the purpose by Mr. R. Armstrong, some of the compnetitors were wofully wide of thebo mark. Even experts butchers and breeders-were astoundingly out of their reckoning-some of them as much as S00lbs. or 400lbs. The general idea of men experienced in cattle was that the weight of the animal would be t about 1,500lbs. It will therefore be understood tnat when the competition was declared closed and the exact weight of the bullock was pronounced to be 1891lbs., a spirit of incredulity began to manifest itself, and some openly asserted that a mistake must have been made in 1 the weighing. As it happened, Mr. G. W. Anderson-President of the Shire superintended the weighing, and he was absol...
LOVE LETTER OF NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
LOVE LETTER OF NAPOLEON. -4--- A love letter from- Napoleon I. has lately been discovered on the person of a poor woman who died recently at Porto Alegre.

Fifteen years ago a kind family took her from Rio de Janeiro, where she then was, and ever since provided for her most necessary wants.

You have seen me but once in the midst of my tuin, when my army was sleeping the eternal sleep of death in the frozen fields pf pssja. Yoif had pity on my misfortunes, and gave me forgetfulness in a moment of love, seocrifcing your own happiness to lessen my despair. If I can succeed in saving the throne I will remember that you once had pity for the vanquished Cesar. A kiss on yourhead, and farewell (1892)...

THE SALE OF CARBINE. ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE VOYAGE. NO EXPENSE TO BE SPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
THE SALE OF CARBINE. ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE VOYAGE. NO EXPENSE TO BE SPARED. Ernest A. Day, a nephew of John Day and the famous William Day, arrived by the Orizaba on Thursday, commissioned by the Duke of Portland to take Carbine to England. Mr. Day, who served his time with the well-known trainer, Mr. Matthew Dawson, has had a good deal of experience in the carriage of valuable stock by water, having taken Foxtail to North America and Bismarck to South America from England, and bringing back Ormonde from Buones Ayres to England, while a few months ago he took and large and valuable consignment of horses from England to Afghanistan. He has been in this part of the world before, having brought out several brood mares from England to the New Zealand Stul Company, in whose employ he was for some 18 months, and during that time, curiously enough, Carbine was foaled. Though he does not possess a veterinary surgeon's certificate, Mr. Day is, from his'-experienee, specially qualified to look...

AN ITALIAN IDEA OF COOLGARDIE. ---- " La Nazione," published at Flo rence, Italy, contains a marvellous account of Coolgardio in its issue of Oth January, under the heading ** An Enormous Treasure in Australia," of which the following is a translation "The gold fever is increasing every day in intensity in Australia, too.

A Fishing Incident. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
A Fishing Incident. A singular circumstance was noted last week by a Carlton resident. WVhilst drawing water from a half-inch Yan Yean tap the skeleton tail of a small black fish was forced out. It has been not un usual for large insects to be forced through the water pipes. but this is the first time the blackfish of Preston reservoir have made their appearance under this pressure. This should be another lesson to people who are addicted to drinking water direct from the tap, for it might be rather inconvenient to get the baekbone of a fish fastened in the throat.
Snake-bite at Willowgrove. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
Snake-bite at Willowgrove. A case ofsnake-bite occurred at Willow grove on Thursday week, Mr. Copeland being bitten between the first and second finger by a brown snake. He was in the act of picking up some dried leaves, when the reptile, which was lying half out of a crab hole. fastened on to his band. After he had despatched the snake, Mr. Cope land obtained the assistance of his daughter, and after tying ligatures round the wrist and arm, he cut the affected part out with a razor. The sufferer had a rather had time ot it some hours after wards, but owing no doubt to the speedi ness with which he cut out the part and applied the ligatures, he was soon out of danger, and he is now fortunately none the worse for his adventure.

That Tax. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
That Tax. In connection with the filing of income tax schedules it is of interest to mention that a Supreme Court judge has been the first to send in his statement of receipts, c , to the Commissioner of Income Tax. Sir Hartley Williams has put up this record. His Honor has obviously taken a lightning snapshot at those embarrassing schedules, and has arrived at a conclusion which many men will spend some years in reaching, and when reached it will be a matter of legal opinion as to whether the conclusion is right or wrong.

Entertainment by Children. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
Entertainment by Children. From an advertisement appearing in this issue it will be seen that .a novel entertainment is to be given by children in the Public Hall on Friday of next week for the purpose of raising funds for re pairing the organ of St. Paul's Church. The performers will consist of the pupils of" Waratah" School and dancing class, and among the items to be produced are Mrs. Jarley's Waxworks, Tableax (with limelight effects), a Glimpse of Fairyland 1 and the Tambourine dance. It will thus be seen that the programme is of a dis tinctly novel and attractive character, and being supported entirely by children, becomes on that account invested with an additional degree of I interest. Great preparations are in pro- I gress for making the different items as effective as possible, and we are informed that the fairyland scene, in particular, will present quite a brilliant and fascinat ing spectacle. The prices to be charged are of the " popular" order, and having regard to the...

MUNICIPAL SWEATING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 March 1895
MUNICIPAL SWEATING. Sma,-The manner in which the muni. cipalitiesof Victoria, andmoreparticularly those in the country, are endeavoring to meet the large reduction in the municipal subsidy might be considered ridiculous if it had not a painful, and itis to be regretted a dishonorable, Iside. No one will find fault with a municipality for endeavoring to meet any shortage of income by a just system of retrenchment, but the system adopted by almost all the municipalities of reducing the salaries of their officers to starvation point cannot commend itself to any right thinking man. The niggardly treatment meted out to officers in the municipal service is indeed in strong con contrast to the liberal treatment extended to the civil service. To anyone understanding the working of a municipality it is well known that a municipal officeris in reality the adviser and guide of almost all the residents. He must have a complete knowledge of municipal law, and thus save his council the heavy drag...
