THE BLACK SHIP. A MYSTERY OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898

THE BLACK SHIP. A 1MYSTERY OF THE SEA. BY CHARLES B. LEWIS. What was known in marine circles as "The Black Ship Mystery" covered a space of a year in the last year of the fifties. If there was any honor in first sighting the black ship, it goes to the brig Sea Gull, bound from Boston to Liverpool. I was second. mate of the brig on that voyage, and on the night of April 30th, -1859, we were lying almost becalmed in mid ocean. There was no air along the decks, but a draught aloft kept steerage way on the craft. At midnight when I came on deck to re lieve the chief mate the moon was shin ing so- brightly, that it was almost like day. There was no change of weather to look out for, and a more quiet night at sea could not be imagined. I had been pacing the deck for half *an hour or more when I suiddenly caught sight of a vessel coming down- on our windwarl quarter. The stranger seem ed to have stolen' out -of some fog bank or cloud of mist, and yet the atmosphere was clear as a bell. As ...

NOT BORN TO BE DROWNED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898

HOT BORN TO BE DROWNED. .e BY "WANDERER." Of all Australian rivers none is more treacherous at certain seasons than the Darling. It is quite a common thing to see it-that is, the portion about and above Bre1'arrina-one week a thin, trickling rivulet, across which one can pass dryshod in many places, and the next a raging torrent, fed by number less flooded creeks, and tributaries, toss ing on its muddy, turbulent bosom vast three trunks and masses of heterogenous debris gathered from low lyingplainand swamp. At such times, its banks, owing to their soft, spongy nature, become veritable death-traps for unwary cattle or horsese that may venture upon them, while at frequent interv:als are found those beautiful,shining patches of quick sand, to set foot on which is to court certain destruction. Seldom, indeed, it is that one sees horses deceived by the apparent firmness of these gleaming sands; some instinct appears to warn them that the smooth, innocent-looking surface is but the thin ...

Before Iris departed for EBarnstead with her stepfather she contrived to have a :;hort talk with Paul. The girl was touchied by the kindly way in which he1irold playrellow had behaved to Dr. Lester and herself in their trouble; and she wished to thank him for his disinter ested zeal. S-laing the opportunity when her sterfather was unversing witli Miss Clyde, she took Mexton by the hand. "I-ow can I ever thank you for all that you have done?" she said. Her race was flushed with a rosy hue, her eyes sparkled like stars; and at the moment, stirred by generous emotioni, Iris Link was a beautiful woman. PaPi had never noted the fact before - per hapis, from long familiarity with her face, and an unavoidable comparison of it with the brilliant beauty of dead Willy.

The JWest Gippsland Gazette has been tested in this critical crucible and has passed through the ordeal with a measure of success that is ex ceedingly gratifying to those re sponsible for its publication. It is not, however, our intention to indulge in any laudatory references to our selves.

DISTRICT NEWS. NEERIM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FIo)x VARIous CORRESPONDENTS). NEERIM. It is now understood that Mr Johnson, of Noojee and Neerim East, has definitely decided to stand for the council. He owns land at Neerimn East and Noojee, and no doubt would be of great assistance to these places. The agricultural prospects for the comning season are decidedly bright, the crops all through this district looking well, The clearance made by the bush fires has caused hundreds of acres to he brought into use, a very large area being laid under grass. Sonme interest is being displayed here in connection with the forthcoming local option poll, to be taken on 25th August, the day of the municipal elections. It is feared, however, that if there is no contest in the North and Centre ridings, as seems to he quite probable, voters will not come in simply to vote at tihe local option poll, in which case it will he inoperative by reasou of the statutory number of votes not being recorded.

CORRESPONDENCE. LOCAL OPTION POLL. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898

CORRESPONDENCE. LOCAL OPTION POLL. TO THE EDITOR Sir.-Permit me through the col. umns of your widely-circulated paper to say a few words relative to the subject above quoted. In the first place, there have been several attempts made to obtain a licensed public house for Neerim South, but owing to one fault or another, it has never come off. To my mind the main fault rests with the ratepayers themselves in not taking the trouble to record their votes. Now, to come to the point, every ratepayer who knows Neerim South, and its rapid advance of late years, cannot fail to see that a licensed hotel is much needed. My teetotal friends will agree with me in saying, of the two evils, let us choose the lesser. And I am almost sure that the name of the gentleman who is applying for a license on this occasion is so well and widely-known, and I may further add, highly-respected throughout the district, that his many friends will record their votes on the 25th inst. in favor of an hotel at Neerim...

A varied programme was presented, consisting of tableaux vivants, songs, a recitation, and selections on the graphophone; and the audience were most enthusiastic in demonstrating their appreciation of the bill of fare. Mr. J. L. Parkes fulfilled the duties of chairman in his usual happy manner. The completeness with which the various tableaux were presented re flected great credit on all who had a share in their production.
