AMERICAN INVENTORS IN GIPPSLAND. MESSRS. HERDMAN BROS. OF BLOOMFIELD. INGENIOUS CONTRIVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

AMERICAN INVENTORS IN GIPPSLAND. MESSRS. HERD.MAN BROS. O1F 1LOOMFIELD. INGENIOUS CONTRIVANCES. [BY OR TIRAVELLING REPORTER] . Americans aie noted for their go-ahe;adl qualities, 1man 1Bros., ýr o hmlve 'Ieenroilcated in the Warragul district for tile past four years, possess all the ingenuity, in ventiveness, and energy chlaracteristic of their coultrymen. When the .Messrs. Herdman came to Australia. from the United States, they visited New South Wales and New Zealand before coming to Victoria, ultimately deciding that this colony oflfered the greatest inducements to settle. They accordingly puruchased 80 acres of land near B]loomfield. The land was then thickly covered with heavy timber; but so energetically has the work of clearing been carried out that now almnost the whole area is under cnltiva tion. Of the 80 acres, 22 are planted with fruit trees, principally apples and pears, the varieties being carefully selected for their keeping and exporting qualities. The remainder of t...

HORTICULTURAL. CONSERVATORY AND POT PLANTS [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

HG ICRTICULTURAL. 'CONSEU RVATORY AND POT PLANTS The conservatory should now be well s2DPplied with flowers from the early batches of primulas, cinerarias, 'ycla ar 5lns, and azaleas.

It would be well to proceed with the work of potting some af the green-house plants before work t-ecomes too pressing. Allamandas and .the climbing elerodendron should be taken in hand first.

POLICE PROMOTION THE SYSTEM DESCRIBED. HOW IT WORKS. PLAIN CLOTHER AND UNIFORM. MARRIED, NOT MATED. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

PULICE PHOMOTIONt THE SYSTEM DESCRIIBED. IIOW IT WORKS. PLAIN CLOTIIHER AND UNIFORM. MARRIIED, NOT MATED. As is the case in every other large public service in which the seniority system obtains, the method of promotion has caused a good deal of heart-burn ing in the Police Force. Of course, it is but natural that this should be so, sine the rce?vtly joined recruit must always be anxious to favor any method which will give him his stripes by a shorter process than the slow expiration of years. On the other hand, the veteran who has passed through his probaation ary stages as constable and senior con stable, to that of first-class sergeant. and to whom the sub-inspector's silver lace is already almost within reach, is ccl tainly not likely to give place to men :who have not been half his time in the "e- vice.

A ROBUST RELIGION. SERMON BY REV. T. DE WITT TALMAGE, D.D. (Condensed) [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

A -ROBUST RELIGION. SERMON BY REV. T. DE WITT TAL 3MAGE, D.D. (Condenaed) Text : Acts 17, 6-"These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also." There'is a wild mob around .the house of Jason, in'Thhsalonica. What has the man done so grealy to offend the people? FHe has been entertaining Paul and his comrades. The mob surround the house and cry, "Bring out those turbulent preachers! They are interfering with our business. They are ruining our re ligion! They are turnig the world up side down!" The charge was true; for there is noth ing that so interferes with sin, there is nothing so ruinous to every form of es tablished iniquity, there is nothing that has such tendency to turn the world up side down, as our glorious Christianity. The fact is, that the world now is wl o;ng side up, and it needs to be turned u;pslde down in order that it may be right side up. The time was when men wrote bhcks entitling them "Apologies for Christian ity." I hope that day has passed. VW...

FOR THE WAR FUND. BULL-FIGUITING IN MADRID. Public attention In Madrid was corn pletely absorbed to-day (12th May) by the special bull fight organised in aid of the Patriotic War Fund, and never in the annals of bull fighting has so much in terest been displayed. Stands have been sold at fabulous prices. The net pro ceeds will go to the national subscription for war purposes. At the bull-ring wo men and mnen wore ribbons of the1 na tional colors, which were also displayed In the trappings and collars of horses and on cabs and carriages. All the shops were closed, the day being observed as a whole holiday. The cafes were filled with customers discussing the probabili ties of the war. No one ventures to mention the word "peace."

THE LEE-METFORD MAGAZINE RIFLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

THE LEE-METFORD MACAZINE RIFLE. ---0 A military correspondent writps: A short while back there was con siderable controversy regarding the sort of rifle to be adopted as a weapon for the Victorian Defence Force. There were a:dvocates for the LeL-Metford magazine rtitl, and quite :as man:y, if not more, who denounc:(il the adoption of a magazine ritle in aiy shape or form for our troops. In the main, their contenCion was that the fact of having a magazimne attached to the rifle led to ric-klek-s expenditure of ammunition, and that the fire which could be ob taiued from the Martini-Enfield or simi lar ý(weapo?es was quite sufficient to Stop any rush to which soldiers Imight be expo.-cd. The advocates of thle ImIaga :'ine simplyi pointed to the fact that all the armlies of first-class powers were now armed with magazine rifles, a:nd that occasions might frequently arise -in fact. had arisen since the adoption of the Lee-Metford by the British army -when the magazine had proved of vital...

The scene was within 140 miles from the old bat tlefield of Mill Springs, where three years be fore he had in flicted upon them a Bull Run disaster. Thomas' victory at Mill Springs, Ky., Jan. 19, 1862, was the first clean and decisive Union triumph of the war. Nashville wiped out for good a Confed erate army which for 100 days in front of Atlanta had baffled Sherman, with his immense columns of battalions and squadrons. Only in these two battles did Thomas wield the supreme com mand. Both were fought to a finish, and what was more-a thing rare in this war-in both cases the enemy was thoroughly routed and his active ca...

THE INFLUENCE OF THE PULPIT [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

THE INFLUENCE OF THE FUL'.PI' This subject is di'scused in the "Tem ple Magaz:ine" for' TMay. De:n Farrar says if it be urged that the inlluence of the pulpit is declining because myriads of men no lonuer retain that firm hold on dogmatic Christianity which marked the undisturbed opinions of their fath ers, he ansnwers that the changing out lines of belief have not. in his opinion. in any way affected the deepest and simplest essentials of faith. The crowds who flock to Westminster Ab bey when some famous preacher is an nounced seem to him to show that the influence of the sermon is not declining. While a man has anything to say, the Dean thinks, he v-ill find many to listen to him. Dr Horton writes on the same sub ject:-"My impression is that while the pulpit fills a greater place in the popu lar eye than it did, it does not grasp and mould the intellect as it did. We are in want of a firmer theology, of premisses deep laid in science, in history. in spiri tual life, and of the tri...

YANKEE INVENTORS AT IT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

YANKEE INVENTORS AT iT. There is a big and thriving crop of warlike inventors in the United States just. now. The Patent Oflice is over whelined with "cranks" who have de vised machines guaranteed to :annlhi late whole fleets, and in the corridors and waiting-rooms of the Navy anti Army departmeints at Washington one is constantly stumblling against some individual with unkempt: hair and eager, excited mien, carrying a new type of inufernal machine uinder his coal. which he is anxious for the Government' to adopt. It is said, with some serious ness, even by experts, that a method of employing electricity after the fashion. of Nature's own plan is on the point of solution by one of these "Yankee in ventors." The quantity of electricity in the average thunderbolt is compara tively small, but the voltage is enor mous.

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898

USEFIJL HINTiS. Lace Should be W~ashed.-It Is a very great mistake to keep choice lace for yetirs without washing. Many women believe that it is ruined by soap and water and will keep some cherished length for years and years, turning yel low with age.and rotting with the dust it has accumulated, till it really drops to pieces. Lemon and orange peel should be dried and used for lighting fires, as a supplement to the kindling wood, patent or otherwise, which has to be paid for. Nut shells, empty cotton-reels, and old corks should be kept in a bag ready to sprinkle on the fire if It gets at all low. In an invalid's room a little store of this kind Is particularly handy, especially If one is staying in lodgings where the landlady and her servant object to hav ing to relight a fire. In mild weather it is extremely difficult to strike the mean between overheating a room and letting the fire sink until it is almost past reviv ing.
