NEW NATIVE GRASS. A PROLIFIC CROPPER. 19 TONS TO THE ACRE. SUITABLE FOR GIPPSLAND. IMPORTANT TO FARMERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898
NEW NATIVE GRASS. A PROLIFIC CROPPER. 19 TONS TO THE ACRE. SUITABLE FOR GIPPSLAND. IMPORTANT TO FARMERS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Some little time ago an account appeared in the Leader of a new native grass -that had been sub jected to experiment by the agricul tural authorities of New South Wales and privately by MIr Morton Williams, of Wollongbar. The results as given are, to say the least, marvellous, and, to my mind, of immense interest to the farmers of West and South Gipps land. In these districts we have to depend on exotic grasses for pasture, cocksfoot being the primary stock. It will be apparent to all that if a native grass of luxuriant growth can be substituted or sown in combination with English grasses, that a more reliable and permanent pasture may be secured. We have had painful ex perience during the past season of the devastation and destruction that has occurred to our grass paddocks. While fire and solar heat have been the principal factors in killing the grass, I thi...

A resolution was unanimously carried in favor of sup porting the bill, but no delegate was appointed. -The advisability of pur chasing a starting-gate was also con sidered, and a resolution in favor of doing so carried. It was also decided that a ground committee : should be appointed to supervise the improve ments being made on the course. The Hialf-Holiday Club still keeps on its victorious career, and on Wed nesday last administered a severe drubbing to Drouin, the visiting team being outclassed from start to finish.

DEATH OF MR. MUIR. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 16 August 1898
DEATH OF MR. MUIR. * Mr James Inkster Muir, of Neerim South, died on Saturday week in Mel- bourne, whither he had gone to be treated for a very painful complaint from which he suffered. He had been ill for some considerable time, and early in June last underwent an opera- tion, but apparently without receiving very much benefit; nevertheless, the news of his death occasioned much surprise. For some time he regarded his complaint lightly, and when he underwent the operation left his bed the next morning and journeyed to Warragul, where he was party to a case set down for hearing at the County Court. He was a man who kept him self a good deal in evidence, and had his health allowed had some idea of contesting the North riding seat at the coming election; he ran against Cr Ward it will be remembered, when that gentleman was elected to the council. Mr Muir, though of brusque demeanour, was a good hearted man, and those who knew him intimately will regret his unexpected death.

WARRAGUL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. FANCY DRESS BALL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
WARRAGUL AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY. FANCY DRESS BALL. A meeting of the ladies committee for the Bazaar in connection with the War ragul Agricultural Society was held on Wednesday afternoon at the Shire Hall. Different projects were discussed as to the best methods of raising funds for the bazaar which is to be held in November next, and it was ultimately decided to organise a plain and fancy dress ball to be held on Wednesday the 14th of September. The date was at first fixed for the 31st of August, and they had actually bespoken the Hall, but upon representations being made to the Secretary by MIr. J. M. Steedman, to the effect that that date was already decided upon. by the Empire Social Committee for the next dance, the Secretary of the Warragul Agricultural Society--Mr. C. S. AtIleck-generously decided to forego the privilege of secur ing the moonlight night. The following Wednesday--7th September-was regard ed as unsuitable, inasmuch as an excursion train leaves W'arragul on that o...

The article deals with co-operative pro duction and selling as successfully carried on in California.

On Saturday last, at the Childers Mutual Improvement Association, an essay on "Wolves," was given by MIr. P. Hirt. A very fair discussion followed the reaeling of the paper.

ST. PAUL'S SUNDAY SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
ST. PAUL'S SUNDAY SCHOOL. The children of the above school to the munumber of about 140 were entertained by the Superintendent, Mr A. C. Lewis, and teachers to an after noon's amusement in the Public Hall, on Wednesday afternoon. The occa sion was made the opportunity of welcoming Mrs Buchanan by the teachers and scholars of the Sunday school. Mrs Buchanan, who on her arrival was received with cheers by the children-drawn up in their classes-was introduced by the Super intendent, to the teachers. Games of all descriptions were indulged in to the great delight of the children, and afternoon tea was handed round about 5 o'clock. A most enjoyable after noon was spent by all present. The idea of bringing the teachers and scholars together in this manner, to welcome with happy hearts and smiling faces, their new pastor and his wife, was an excellent one, and calculated to cement at once, the bond of love and esteem which should always exist between them.
COOKING FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
COOKING FOOD FOR PICS. Though there are rarguments both for and against the value of cooking food for pigs :.dvanced by experit-nced breeders in Europe and America there can be scarcely any doubt that cooking hard, dry grain renders it more easy of diges tion, enabling the animal to extract the maximum of nutritive material it con tains, and that ordinarily fed in this form and of the proper consistency it affords a larger percentage of tlesh and fat than. if fed in the raw state. In Co burn's "Swine Husbandry," an Ameri can work, there is a drawing of Clay's food cooker, which we reproduce here with. Mr Coburn, in submitting de t.ils, says:-For successful operation and simplicity and economy in construc tion we regard an apparatus made and used by the !ate S. II. Clay, of Paris, Kentucky, as about as good,if not supe rior, to any patented cooker th:,t could be bought for two or three times the cost of this. It consits of a box OTt. wide and t or 8 ft. long, and 18 to 24in. deep, ma...
The West Gippsland Gazette. WARRAGUL. AUGUST 23, 1898. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
WARRIAGUL. AUGUST 23, 1898. Unlike most other towns w.AmtAGUL of its size and import BHLss DBAD. ance Warragul has no recognised brass band. We are glad to notice, however, that a movement is now being made to remedy this deficiency and every encouragement should be given to those who are mainly instrumental in organising the scattered forces, which at one time delighted the ears of the musical fraternity of the town. " At the sound of the drum"-if we except the Salvation Army,-is almost an unknown phrase in Warragul, and yet what can be more inspiring, or calculated to lift us above the ordinary routine of our daily duties, than the strains of a good brass band. On those rare occasions, when the old hand marched at the head of a procession through the streets, or played martial strains at intervals to enliven the programme of sports held on the show-grounds, it is not to much to say that the music from the instruments formed one of the chief features of the day. If our readers will...
CORRESPONDENCE. WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE AND VOTING BY POST. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
CORRESPONDENCE. WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE AND VOTING BY POST. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,--How will womanhood suffrage affect town and country voting ? Within the metropolitan area there are a greater number of women than men, thus womanhood suffrage will more than double the metropolitan vote. In the country districts the position is reversed as there are a greater number of men than women, thus womanhood suffrage will not give the country vote .a correspondingly proportionate in crease. This is one phase of this much debated subject which should not be lost sight of :for a moment. Nor is this all, the facilities for recording votes within the metropolitah area are such as to enable any woman to record her vote without inconvenience or loss of time. Compare these facilities with the position of, the women in the country districts, where roads are knee deep in mud bad enough for hardy men, impassable for women. The self-denial and courage that enabled these women.to go with their husbands or relativ...
OUR ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
OUR ROADlS. Sir,-Permit me to draw attention to the state of our roads. Not roads surely! Rather quagmires! W1 e have waited long and patiently for even an indication that some improvement will be attemnpted. At present it is hardly possible, even in broad daylight, to journey a few miles from the township without risk to life or limb. I understand the council have no money, but I would warn them they will have to find money. hot for the roads, but for the lawyers, if this state of things is not quickly remedied. Perhaps our worthy councillors are under the pleasing delusion that they' are not bound by law to keep their roads in order-that, in fact, if an accident happened (and how it does not happen is the marvel) on the road to Drouin over the broken and loose corduroy, the shire could not be held responsible and mulcted in heavy damages. A recent decision at the Kil more County Court may cause our muni cipal representatives to waken up. At that court on Thursday. 21st July, Judge...
