A Preposterous Objection. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 13 March 1894
A Preposterous Olbjcction. In a certain district in Derbyshire a iMethodist lady is a candidate for the board of guardians. We are greatly sur prised to learn that come objection has been offered to her canudidatro on the gound that, while personally eminently suitable for th!oe position, there is no need to have a lady on the board of guardians. That argument fairly takes our breath away. Surely those who use it havefor gotten that the great majority of paupers areo womenn and children. Does anybody seriously argue at ithis time of day that a pack of men are the most suitable per eons to make arrangements for women and children? As a mnatter of fact, we could, if neces sary, mention most aidiculous incidents that have occurred when unhappy boarda of guardians h-re had to deal with feioi-. nine and infantile questions. No, nol! Let s admit the superiority of man in lis own sphero, but when it comes to feeding, clothing and otherwise minis tering to women and children man is de cided...

arr4gul umrbian TUESDAY, 13ru MARCII, .1891. NOTES AND COMMENTS. "Honor to whom honor is duo-" will doubtless be the principle upon which the -ladies of the recent Athennaum Bazaar committee will act in selecting one of .their number to accept the graceful compliment paid them by the subscribers of the insti tution in-inviting them to nomiiiate a-recipient of the hoior :attaching to the appointment of " honorary. life member." The idea was as happy as a grateful tribute to the acknowlhidged enthusiasmin of the ladies in- 'under taking the details 6f. a responsible project. Without their assistance the bazaar could not have- been held. They were thle ' life and soul" of the venture and proved the sincerity of their concern' for the welfare of this literary resort by the practical work they accomplished. Every lady did her share, and having made this admission we shall not be accused of discounting the efforts of any iii adding that by far the heavier -share fell to the lot of the sec...

Grief of a Pet Pigeon. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 16 March 1894
Grief of ? et Pigeon. One morning one of the two pet pi geons belonging to my father was found upon the highroad dead, its body bearing marks of injury, but from what e?use we - never knew. We carried the dead body home and buried it in a Esuny ntd.quiet spot in the garden.' For three days the surviving pigeon with untiring energy searched the country far and near for its mate, but in vain. It refused to touech food, and even the influence which mny father usually exorcised over it was gone. On the third day we found it dead in the dovecot, its little lmeart broken with grief by the loss of its lifelong coihmpainion. We buried it beside its mate ?CorTLon don Spectator.

CRICKET. TINDALE-FLEMING CHALLENGE CUP DROUIN v. WARRAGUL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 16 March 1894
CRICKET. TINDALE-FLEMING CHAL LENGE CUP 0--- DROULN v. WARRAGUL. The Warragul club met the Drouin club on Wednesday last, on the Drouin ground, when there was a fair attend ance of the public, a few of the gentler se gracing the ground with their pre elnce. The Warragul men went first to the wickets-Brewer (capt.) and Coghlan being first men in. The pitch proved a little bumpy. Brewer, who played a good innings, carried out his bat for a well earned 69, only giving one chance. Howell, the next highest scorer (22) played good cricket, but had to retire being smartly caught bly liinnaberry behind the sticks. Davidson, the next man in, caused a good deal of jubilation, tothe Drouin men when Tindale bowled him first ball, " Jimmy" retiring amidst cheers. White, who still suffers with his knee, had Davidson to run, and soon put up 10, when 1.b.w. sent him afield, Gay nor batted freely for his 14, and owed his defeat to Kinnaberry, being caught. The other members of the ' in" team were di...

An Apparent Paradox. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 16 March 1894
An Apparent randox. "I had always been taught that cold contracts and heat expands," said Har old Bunrwti, "but I have had an ex perience that is different. In my office I use incandescent lights, and on my desk I have an upright bulb, with a standard.. The shade was broken on it, and I placed it on top of the deskin a corner between the wall and a cabinet of pigeonholes. The other morning on entering the office I hung my derby hat on this bulb. Later on I went into an adjoining room, which was dark, and needing some light pushed the button in the wall that set the electric lamps aflame. The lights gave the place such a cheerful aspect, it being a stormy day outside, that I did not turn them off. At noon, when I was going out. to lunch, I reached for my hat, and it was baked. "The incandescent lamp, which had been aglow all the while, had made it very hot, and the leather band was so drawn and contracted that I couldn't get my hat on my head. It simply sat on the top of my cranium l...
Planet Shadows. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 16 March 1894
1'maset Shadows. There is no doubt that some of thoe most brilliant planets, such as Venus and Jupiter, are capable of casting distinct shadows, as may be seen any fine even ing in the tropics. Not long ago 31. L. Guiot observed that Jupiter threw a dis tinct shadow of his watch upon a wall, and that he was able to read a uewspa per by the light. 3L Moye also finds that Mars is ableto cast a shadowr, but a much fainter one than Jupiter. He was also able to count the number of words in a newspaper placed in the light of the planet entering by a window, but he could not read them.-Exchange.

Collis, a judgement debtor, under the Imprisonment for Debt Act, to show cause why he had failed to pay the amount of an order of £45, on a promissory note. Mr. Friend conducted the examination. Edward W. Collis said he was a farmer, but he had left his farm a week or two ago. He had ceased to work the farm sometime last winter.

He had had no dealings with his mother or brother in the matter. The farm was sold to witness' mother while he was in Mel. bourne.

FROZEN SHEEP, A HANDsoME RETURN. -0- A day or two ago we received a let ter from Mr Hotson in which he com mented very favorably on the lot of lambs recently sent for export to Lon don from Mr Stribling, of Buln Buln.

BLOOMFIELD. PUBLIC TEA MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 16 March 1894
BLOOMFIELD. PUBLIC TEA MEETING. The anniversary tea meeting in con. nection with' the Wesleyan. body took place in the Mechanics' Institute, on Wednesday evening. In one respect at least the gathering was a novel one, as all the contents of the tables were provided by Mr. and Mrs. J. Jones, whose residence is opposite the Mechanics' Institute, and who have on many previous occasions given evidence of an unstinting liberality. The evening being fine, and the ride or drive to the rendesvouz promising to be enjoyable and invigorating, a large number of people turned out, and could not possibly have been disap pointed. On the tables were a plentiful and varied supply of provisions, presided over by an efficient and and obliging staff of waiters. The chair, at the subsequent-publio meeting, was occupied by Mr. R. Hillard, who, in the course of a few facetious remarks ingratiated himself into the sympathies of the audience, and expressed his pleasure at being amongst them. Mr. Weir, Home ...
