"KISS ME, JACK, AND LET ME GO." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
"KISS ME, JACK, AND K LET ME GO." Once, long ago, I was witness to a duel in California. The two men had been bosom friends, and had quarelled about (of course) a woman. Splendid fellows both-young, brainy, and ambitious. As they stood in a clear space ,among the pine trees near Sacramento, pale as lillies, steady as rocks, weapons in hand waiting for :he word, the rising sun shining athwart the line of vision, they pre sented a picture too often seen in 1856. The pistols cracked almost simultaneously. One man stood erect, evidently untouched; the other fell upon his back and lay straight and still. Seconds, surgeons and specta tors rushed to his side. He was " all there," mind as well as body. " No, don't disturb me," he said coolly to the doctor, " I'm shot fatally and shall die in five minutes. Call Jack and be quick." Pistol still in hand, his antagonist came and bent over his erstwhile chum. The excitement among the crowd was intense; the dying man alone was calm. "Jack, my dar...
"PUNCH" PICKINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
"PUNCH " PICKINGS. Why does one never see a rich Irish man?, or a poor Scotchmen ? or a Jew who is either a beggar or a 'farmer ? or a bishop's with a large family? or a schoolboy with clean hands? or a sailor who dosen't like afternoon tea ? or a racing man who does? or a Wesleyan with square shoulders ? or a stage villain who is not dark ? or a Governor who does not " look back on the five years in Aus tralia as the happiest of his life ?" or a Governor who is not glad when the five years are up ? It is a singular circumstance that in a conversation with a friend in the House of Commons exactly ten years ago, Lord Randolph Churchill said that he would be Prime Minister in five years. and that he would be dead in ten. The latter part of the prediction has unhappily been ful filled. Alf. Bailes formerly member of Parliament for Bendigo, is now a reporter for on a local paper. See what a man may become by being per severing and honest ! When Alf's bails were shattered by the electora...

Home Reading Circle. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
Home Reading Circle. An attempt is to be made on Tuesday next to revive the Home Rleading Circle in Warragul. Last season membership was confined to ladies only, but for the future it is proposed to admit gentlemen, and thus increase the attendance, and possibly the interest as well. There should certainly be a number of gentlemen in Warragul sufficiently fond of intellec tual pursuits to induce them to support a movement of this character, & as it is the only associatioh of the kind in the town, they should readily avail themselves of the opportunities it offers of spending an occasional evening in mental culture, The meeting will be hold in the Athenmeum at eight o'clock in the evening, and we understand that Mrs. Copeland-the president of the circle-wvill be present to explain the object in view.

Iining Report. We have received the third special report of Mr. Jas. Stirling, the assistant geological surveyor, on the Victorian coalfields round about Korimburra. It describes the toyography ot the coalfields, the quality of the coal, the result of borinng operations on the different leases, the co-relation of seams, anduthe quantity of coal estimated to be available on each. He states that there are altogether ,5,755,511 tons of coal at the Kornmburra, Jumbunna, and Outtrim fields. The origin of the coal fields is explained, and lie concludes his report by referring to thie necessity for sorting the coals for steaming and domestic purposes and for gas production Several maps are attached to thie report showing the position of thie leases and the extent of the workings.
Light Railways for Gippsland. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
Light Railways for Gippsland. The following letter on light railways appears in the '" Ago'.' from the pen of Mr. Frank H. Geach:--The Ministry meditate a departure in railway construc tion which ought to have been initiated 10 years ago. A sound system must recognise thie divisions of primary and secondary railways. The former re present the arteries, the latter the capillaries of commerce. The primary carry big loads at a speed of 30 miles and often, the secondary carry small loads 10 miles per hour, and less frequent; whilst the ratio of cost is about 5 to 1. Function governs structure. Arteries are complex strong tubes, whilst capillaries are simple and thin. Main lines and feeders are not identical in purpose, but rather complementary; hitherto we have persistently refused to recognise this distinction. Thus con trusted, the two forms stand out from each other boldly. To ensure economy in railway management a clear cleavage of duties is necessary. The central body must control ...
THE GOVERNOR'S DEPARTURE. ENTHUSIASTIC FAREWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
THE COVERNOR'S DE PARTURE. ,ETHIUSIASTIC FAREWELL. -0 The departure of His Excellency the Governor and the Countess of Hope toun on Tuesday was signalised by an outburst of popular enthusiasm that is without a parallel in the history of Victoria. Never before has any departing Governor .received such a magnificent tribute of regard, and never before have such densely packed crowds been seen in the city of Mel bourne. Not only was every available inch of standing room in the streets patiently occcupied and resolutely retained long before the hour fixed for the farewell ceremony, but the windows of the houses, shops, and offices and even the roofs and parapets were crowded with people anxious to catch a last glimpse of the most popular Governor who has ever come to the colony, and td wave s last good-bye both to him and to the lady who has so successfully shared with him the duties of social leader ship in Melbourne. Under the supervision of Colonel Penno, the assistant adjutant-gener...
Neerim and its Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
Neerim and its Potatoes. Some perplexity seems to have been caused some of our readers by a paragraph which appeared in this journal a few weeks ago in which we acknowledged the receipt of a very fine sample of potatoes grown on Mr. Anderson's property at Neorinm. The question over which the bewilderment occurred was, "Who is Mr. Anderson ?" As a matter of fact the property belongs to a Mr. Anderson, of Sydney, but is being rented by Mr. Davies and, of course, it is ]mown locally as " Davies's place." The tubers sent us were perfect market specimens and we noticed at the Agricultural Show at I3uln luln that Mr. Davies exhibited a bag of the same variety--lrown's River. T'hey were splendidly grown, very solid, and free from any trace of grub or decay. As long as Neerim can produce such tubers as,these the district must inevitably go ahead in time and finally eclipse the western product in the Melbourne market.
Masonic Service. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
Masonic Service. The annual Masonic service in connec tion with the Argyle lRoyal Arch Chapter and the Argyle Lodge, No. 105, took place in the Mechanics' Hall, Traralgon, on Sunday afternoon, and was numerously attended, the large hall being well filled with a congregation of some 800 persons. There was also a good muster of members of the craft, brethren being present from Morwell, Coalville, Rosedale, and other places. The olliciating mimsters were Bro. the Rov. J. G. Wilson, chaplain of the Argyle Logde. and Bro. the Rev. E. Nye, B.A., who preached the sermon.
HOW TO PEEL TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
HOW TO PEEL TOMA TOES. Nearly all cookery books say "pour boiling water over ripe tomatoes and then peel. them"; and at least 90 every 100 persons attempt to peel in them in thismanner, and consequently do itjwith much difficulty and very imperfrctly and very imperfectly. Try this plan, which is the proper way to peel tomatoes: Cover them with boiliog water half a minute, then lay them in cold water till they are perfectly cold, when the skin can be slipped off without difficulty, leaving the tomatoes unbroken and as firm as before they were scalded.
WHO GOES THERE? AN AMUSING CIRCUMSTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
WHO GOES THERE P -4- AN AMUSING CIRCUMSTANCE. An incident illustrating what may happen to distinguished people, and howstern is our military discipline, took place at the Spencer-street rail way station in connection with the departure of the Governor. .lJst as the privileged holders of platform tickets were streaming through the archway leading to the platform, the artillery-men stationed there were ordered to arevent any further admis sions to the enclosed suace. The order came at a rather inopportune time, as at that very moment a group of distinguished citizens were at the gate. and they were at a loss to know why their progress should be barred in this peremptory manner, seeing that the platform was far from being crowded. Noticeable amongst those who were thus refused admission were the Mayor of Melbourne, the Minister of Defence, his Honor Judge Casey, Sir Henry and Lady \Vrixon, the consuls for Austria, Belgium, France, and the United States, and Sir George Verdon, nearly al...

The South Warragul Mine. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
The South W arragul Mine. SAbout two years ago Mr. Chaffey, who had considerable :experience in mining operations for many years in various parts of the Atustralian colonies, was induced to visit South Warragul. He was very favorably impressed with the auriferous appearance of the country inl the locality of Bear Creek. The South Warragul G.M. Company was started. As the result of some drives put into a hill on what was known as Gold Creek many years ago, a large body of wash was dis covered which had the appearance of being of a payable character. Several offers were received to take'the mine on tribute, and it was let to a party who,' from want of proper applicances, have not worked the mine successfully. A few weeks ago the company toodi;overt the mine from the tributers, and have had ?i? engine boiler and plant placed on the ground, a good track having been cut from the main South Warragul-road to the mine. Four of the Melbourne directors visited the mine on Tuesday, and were we...
TURF AND FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 29 March 1895
TURF AND FIELD. The Harvester and The Admiral, two of Mr. S. G. Cook's horses, did a good sound gallop on the sand track at Flemington, when a mile and three-quarters were negotiated in 8min. 20secs. The Harvester is first favorite for the Sydney Gold Cup. John L. Sullivan in his time fought 120 battles, of which he only lost one, that against Jem Corbett. He has now been ." counted out " for the last time, Americans are said to gamble more than any other nation. When asked as to the financial success of the English cricket tour, Major Wardill and Mr. Phil Sheridan diplomatically reply that they " have just turned the corner." One of the jokes of the cricket match has been the circulation of a picture of the inter section of Collinsand Swanston streets, labelled, "Portraits of Major Wardill and Mr. Sheridan, managers for the English team." ."' But where are the managers?" everyone ask, on seeing it; "Oh, they've just turned the corner," is the reply. The genial Victorian Premier sto...
