MERELY A HYPOCHONDRIAC [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

MERELY A HYPCHUU NDRIAC Chivers had no definite occupation; but his nerves were shattered. That was his occupation. "'What do you think is the matter?" says he to Sir Andrew Leeds, of Wim pole street. "Do you drink tea?" asked the doctor, eyeing him inquisitorially - "afternoon tea?" "Yes," says Chivers anxiously. "With cream?" "Why, yes." "That's the mischief! It is the cream that is wrecking your gastrics, my friend!" Off goes Chivers to Sir Bolus MI'Gorge, In Harley street. "Doctor," says he, "I'm feeling very poorly - should you say, now. tea was bad for me?" "My dear sir, that depends - take ilenty of cream with your tea and it will do you no great harm." Chivers then looks in on the cele brated homeopath Dr Dodgem, of Wel beck street - quite the rising man on digestion, you know. "Doctor, pray tell me the truth about tea!" "Tea!" says Dodgem, "the most insidi ous of poisons!" "'What! with plenty of czeam?" "With or without. Nothing can make it wholesome; or - or - and he looke...

HIS SERIOUS DOUBTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

HIS SERIOUS DOUIBTS. One day-one of those balmy. com forting days, neither too warm nor nor too hot. that November in her mercy cometimes gives us-O'Connot came into the office. His entrance was as noiseless and as apologetic as ever'. He had made, too. as was usual with him when he called upon M3r Cutting. a careful toilet. The only relief from his speckless black was the immaculate whiteness of his linen, which supplied unquestionable evidence of " domestic finish," both where it framed his fringe of grizzled beard, and where it encircled his gnarled knuckles. He sidled into the nearest chair, placed his tall hat gin gerly on the floor beside him, folded his hands and sighed. I knew Mr Cutting had seen him comrne in: because he had winked at me quiet ly over his shoulder during the fraction of a minute while O'Connor was dispos ing himself and his hat. Silence followed, while Mr Cutting's pen raced over the sheet of foolscap be fore him, and my eyes were glued to the latest Massac...

THE LOCAL OPTION POLLS. NEERIM SOUTH AND THORPDALE TO BE TAKEN ON THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

THE LOCAL OPTION POLLS. ---Y---- - NEERIIM SOUTII AND THORBPDALE TO BE TAKEN ON THURSDAY. On Thursday next local option polls will be taken in the I )rouin West and Narracan Licensing districts. Although several townships are embraced within the boundaries of each of the licensing dis riets mentioned, the local option polls will practically affect only two townships -viz. Neerim South in l)rouin '1est, and Thorpdale, in Narracan. . Both of these townships are without a licensed house at present, although the population and the importance of each amply warrant such a convenience. There are mallny reasons why it is desirable that this state of affairs should be altered. In the first place, the lack of a licensed house is urgently felt by the travelling public, who often find it difficult to get accommodation ; and in the second place, it is a well known fact that sly grog selling is extensively carried omn. In the past, many people who have had consieCntious objections to the liquor t...

HOOLEY IN A HOLE. AMOR.E OF THE BPLACIZMAIL Mr Iooley informed a representative of the "Daily Telegraph" on Saturday (Julyll) that he has four secretaries get ting together the details of the money and details of the "'blackmail" he has paid during the last three years. He de clared that his correspondence. which at present is exceptionally heavy, contains evidence that certain persons have been thrown into a state of alarm by his threats to publish a list of those who he alleges have "blackmailed" him. " I have had contracts returned to me." he said, "by which I had engaged to pay money to certain newspapers; I have had cheques sent back to me-postal or ders even: I have received bank notes all from people who have blackmailed me. This morning I have had visits from the chiefs of financial papers which I could name." The reporter ventured to put a point which has been in the mouths of many people during the past few days: "I have heard people say that a weak point in your explanati...

MIore than two centuries ago William Penn. who was so manifestly used in uniting your country and ours by links more lasting than any forged in the fur nace of war. wrote from this land to his fellow-colonists in Pennsylvania as fol lows: "Fritends,-The eyes of many are upon you, the people of many nations of Europe look on (your) country as a land of ease and quiet, and wish to them selves in vain the same blessings which they conceive you enjoy." These words still applly in large mea sure, but over the clear sky of your civil life has arisen the dark cloud of the war with Spain. 1We desire at this season of stress and strain to as.sociate ourselves in close symipathy and fraternal greeting with all who take their stand under the ban nor of the Prince ...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

THE rFLOWER GARDEN. In filling up the flower border do not forget to plant a few cunnas. These flowers give a tropical aspect to the garden. Their highly-colored leaves and orchid-like flowers, form a pleasing contrast to surrounding plants. The im provement made in cannas during the last year or two has been very marked. both for brilliancy of foliage and flowers. The latter are invaluable for cutting purposes, being borne in large quanti ties, and last a long time when cut and placed in water. Austria, Italia, Doyen, Jean Liabaird,and Souvenir du President Carnot, will be found desirable varieties. Aphides are making their appearance on roses, the plants must be occasionally syringed with weak tobacco water. When the pruning of roses has been completed, the beds should be heavily mulched with well decayed stable man ure, and if extra fine flowers are required for show purposes, weak guano water and soot should be given later on. Keep carnations, and plants of this class well tied ...

THE LOCAL MINES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

THE LOCAL MINES. S-- -4---- '-.-- -At the Endeavour, operations are still confined to the No. 2 shaft, where the stone has become highly minera lised, as it generally does in this district at no great depth from the surface. The manager is experienc ing some difficulty with water; and it is expected that a whip will have to be erected to cope with it. At Neerim East, the newly-formed Proprietary Company is giving the country a thorough testing before deciding to erect machinery. The property so far is opening up well. The district is greatly handicapped for want of a battery. All the mines, with the exception of the Proprietary Coilpany, are owned by small co operative parties, consequently they have not capital sufficient to erect batteries. Steps are being taken to get a portable battery into the locality and it is understood that the Mines department has several on hand. It is proposed to get one of these, so that the owners of co-operative claims may be able to get enough to kee...

DISTRICT NEWS. NEERIM SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 23 August 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS). NEERIM SOUTH. Mr J. Petschack. Jindivick, has lost 16 head of cattle during the last few weeks owing to the scarcity of feed, and several other farmers have also lost cattle. Some of the graziers up north are coming out of the winter better than they anticipated. The good rough feed and mild winter has helped their stock remarkably well, and now they have the prospect of good prices. Mr Jenkins who has secured a five years' lease of Mrs Johnson's property of 81 acres, has been putting in crop for the past fortnight. Besides oats, he has a couple of acres of onions in. He likes the place, and, indeed, he says he always fancied the Neerim district. He will not relinquish the farm at Trafalgar for some little time yet, but hopes to make his home in Neerim eventually. The ladies connected with the Wesleyan Church have effected a minor imnprove ment by subscribing to have a lamp placed over the gateway. The demand for farms was never so brisk as ...
