THE HOME SEPARATOR QUESTION. VIEWS OF AN EXPERT. A NOTE OF WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
THE HOME SEPARATOR QUESTION. VIEWS OF AN EXPERT. A NOTE OF WARNING. The question of home separating is one of such vitual importance to our farmers and dairymen, that any authoritative information bearing upoil the subject should be welcomed by all those who are interested in the success of tfe- ilairying industry. Gippsland is coming more and more to the front as a dairying centre, for we have green crops and verdant pas tures in.this favored province, when other parts of the colony are parched up with drought. The Aricultural Department has engaged the services of several experts in butter and cheese making to lecture at the different dairying centres throughout the colony and Ir R. Crowe one of the experts referred to, recently delivered an address on '" Butter making and the use of the home separator "-at the Merrigum Butter Factory, Goul burn Valley. In its report of the lecture, which was very interesting, the "Leader " states Sir Crowe said he desired to bring prominently bef...
AN EXCITING FOX HUNT. A LARDNER CHASE. REYNARD SHOT IN A LOG. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
AN EXCITING FOX HUNT. A LARDNER CHASE. REYNARD SHOT IN A LOG. The existence of foxes in the War ragul Shire in somewhat disconcerting numbers is indicated by the destruc truction of poultry and the frequency with which skins are left at the Shire Office, and claims made for the bonus of 2s 6d per headl. The Lardner dis trict apparently possesses a fair pro portion of this destructive pest. Mr. Langford is a persevering farmer in this locality, and reynard has at times exhibited marked appreciation of his turkeys and other feathered stock. A few days ago one of these wily creatures made his appearance on the property shortly before noon and was espied by MrLangford prowling around in search of a mid-day meal. It was a clear bright morning-an ideal day for a chase-and in response to the prompt ings of his sporting instinct lie im mediately decided on indulging in a little recreation. Arming himself with a gun and summonsing the co-operation of his wife, and a faithful collie dog, the ...

HE SAW THE PARADE, BUT LOST HIS TOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
HE SAW THE PARADE,BUT LOST HIS TOOTH. "I had a queer fellow in that chair yes terday," said the dentist, as he fitted a new drilling head into his satanic little instrument of torture. "A man came in to have a tooth out-one of those great, big, pompous, egotistical chaps, who looked as though he owned the whole city water front at the very least. I told him that he had better take gas, because the tooth was a bad one, badly ulcerated. Well, then, you should have seen him! He looked at me with at kind of pitying smile. "'Gas,' he said. 'gas! Humph! Why, my good man, gas wouldn't have any effect on me. It may work with some people, but not with me. Too much mind, my dear fellow-altogether too much mind'-and he actually tapped his forehead with his finger as though it held the whole Astor Library. with the Lenox and the Tilden foundation to boot. 'The old chap was so confoundedly disagreeable with all his conceit that I made up my mind that I would have to take him down a peg. "Look he...

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. POLLING DAY—THURSDAY NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
iMUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. POLLING DAY-THURSDAY NEXT. The municipal elections take place on Thursday next. In the Warragul Shire the only contest is in the North Riding, MIr. 'McNeil and Mr. Stock dale having been returned unopposed for the Central and South Ridings respectively. The ratepayers 6f the North Riding, and the local public generally, will regret to hear that Mr A. 1). Beard is unable to canvas in connection with the North Riding contest owing to being incap acitated by illness. He is suffering from a very severe attack of sciatica,; and yes terday proceeded to Melbourne for medical treatment. The other candidates -Mr Caunter and Mr Lillico-are vig orously carrying on the contest and in view of the fact that there are three aspirants for the seat it is impossible to forecast the result. In the Narracan Shire the only con test is in the East Riding, where the fight lies between Messrs. Brazier, Crisp, and Dickinson, whilst in Buln Buln Shire the only seat in dispute is in the ...
OUR AURIFEROUS LANDS. THE LOCAL GOLD FIELDS. WHAT MINERS HAVE TO DEPEND ON FOR A LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
OUR AURIFEROUS LANDS. THE LOCAL GOLD FIELDS. WHAT MINERS HAVE TO DE PEND ON FOR A LIVING. (BY CRn?sus) The thanks of the mining com munity are due to the " United Miners' League" for the manner in which it has brought to light the wholesale manner in which the auriferous lands at Neerim and Crossover districts have been allowed to be selected under the 42nd section of the Land Act 1890. With whom the responsibility of removing the mining objections rests, it is not fair to even hint, until it is known whether the Hon. the Minister of Mines will grant the com mittee of enquiry, asked for by the " United Miners' League." In com mon courtesy to the Heon. the Minister of Mines, and the officers of the Mines Department, the members of the League deemed this course advisable, if the Minister grants the committee of enquiry. Then as a matter of course the subject matter of complaint will be made public, and a public grievance rectified. But in the event of the committee not being granted, ...
SEA VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
SEA VIEW. Owing to the warm sunshine which we have experienced between the showers during the past two weeks, the grass is beginning to spring luxuriantly. The cattle thoroughly appreciate the new growth after all the privations they have had to endure throughout the winter. The mortality amongst the cattle is. I am glad to s ate, falling off considerably, and with the advance of warm spring weather, and the new growth of feed, dairy farmers will begin to take heart again. One result of the bush fires is in evi dence on every hand, for owing to the clearances made by the flames, fencing is being actively pushed on with, and new boundary and subdivisional fences are going up everywhere. The cutting at lhe school hill, which has hitherto been such a bugbear to the residents of Sea View, is now being pro ceeded with, Mi. J. Ashcroft having the contract in hand. Although it will be a great improvement on the old state of affairs, it might have been still better, if the soil taken from t...
JINDIVICK. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
JINDIVICK. The lacal creamery has been running all the winter, although the quantity put through has not been very large. The manager, however, expects to be in full swing in the course of a few weeks. The committee of the last concert, are to be congratulated on clearing a profit of nearly '£4. A meeting was held last week to clea.t up the financial details and votes of thanks were passed to those who had so generously given their services to make the concert a success. The fine weather experienced during the past few weeks is admitted on all hands to be just the thing we require, giving the grass a fair start, and giving cattle, which are in many instances very poor, a chance to recover. We should have a first rate season. Luckily the bulk of cows will not commence to calve before Sep tember so that they will be able to recover from 'the ill-effects of the autumn and winter. Messrs Mapleston Brothers intend clos ing down their sawmills for about 6 weeks on account of the bad state...
CHILDERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898
CHILDERS. All vegetation is on the move, and .within a very short time there will be plenty of grass for stock which have sur vived the trying winter. The season in itself has not been very cold or wet, but the lack of feed, combinedwith the trying summer, has been the cause of death to a great number of cows. One dairyman in this district, M. G. Pavitt, has now only 4 cows out of 22 first-class milkers. Instances of this kind are only too numerous. The dairying fraternity have suffered much more than those who have been dependent on fruit-crops, or cereals. As far as can be judged at present, the fruit crop is likely to be fairly good, as the trees are blooming freely. As to election matters, we in this riding, (the West) have been spared the trouble and worry to attend meetings, causing the candidates to make promises which they will never be able to carry out. Certainly, from a financial standpoint, a Swalkover in these times of shire starvation is something perhaps we ought to b...
