OUR? LETTER BOX. [We distinctly wish it to be understood that.we do not necessarily uphold the views expressedbycorrespondents under this heading.] WARRAGUL DISTRICT. HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR SIn.-"Dawn," in answer to a letter by "' oultice," re guaranteed annual subscribers, suggests a monster Caledonian gathering, to take place in the spring of the year as a set off to asking farmers and others to become yearly subscribers to the Hospital. Now, I think, sir, that this is only another way of, getting subscriptions and not nearly as good a plan as that suggested by " Poultice," for the people who attend these sports will rest contented that they have given their mite towards the object by paying their shilling at the gates. It is all very well to have this gathering, but when we think of all the incidental expenses that are bound to accrue in preparing this monster carnival and the number of shillings it will take to defray the same, it would be better to ask the people for their shi...
"Going Wild." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
. ' Going". Wild." .That local people are going wild' over the Income Tax, is proved by the fact that'the first supply of schedules at the Mlirbo.: North post office and railway stationi was cleared. out; and a fresh batch had to be wired for. Many luck less wights havo tried to wade through the confounded things, and after wan dering about with wet towls round their heads until they were almost gibbering idiots, they have torn up the papers in despair. But they have had to re charge themselves, and this is given as the reason for the run on them. "Curses, not loud but deep," have been so universal that Mr,-Tnrner will have to answer for an epidemic of wickedness which must weigh heavily on his soul hereafter. Ii is pardonable to wish he may II.P.? "Gippslander."

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 live 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 m...
THE ATHENÆUM COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
THE ATHENI EUM COMMITTEE. t Sin,-I see by a report you lately c published that a subscribers meeting has 1 been held for the purpose of authorising the above committe to carry out certain works so as to turn the present rooms into a meeting hall. If the names supplied in your report are correct, then there were present exactly three members I of the " public," besides the actual com mittee, who put in an appearance to i support the project. This serves to show that the persistent agitation of the advo cates of the scheme has failed to carry conviction to many minds, Now, Sir, two years ago I certainly thought the idea a good one, but times have changed greatly since. To my sorrow I know that there are too many banks, too many publicans, too many blacksmiths, too many agents, and I was going to say, but I wont, too many policemen in Warragul. Not to mince matters, within the past few years Warragul has simply shrank, and had the above committeo carried out their work when first proje...
Warragul Shire Council. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
Warragul Shire Council. The subsidy for the current half-year, ending June 30th., has just been re ceived by Mr. J. Picken, secretary of the Warragul Shire Council. The amount is £529 Is its compared with £16310 s Sd. received for the corresponding period last year. In the report on the financial outlook presented to the council by the secretary a few months ago he estimated that the total amount of subsidy which would come to hand for the present'year would be £1057 17s. - Ifa'similar amount is received for the next half-year-ending September 30th-as that just received for the present half-year, it will at once be seen that Mr. Picken was not far out in his estimate. His estimate was £1057 17s, and the actual amount that will be received is £1058 2s. Respecting the intimation in our last iss'ie that no invitation to attend the social held on 'Wednesday in connection with the Presbyterian Sunday School had been received at the office of this journall and that no report of the pro ce...
THE WOMAN OF WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
THE WOMAN 'OF WATERLOO. There has just died at her home 'il Whitechapel. at the age of ninety, one before whose eyes the Battle of Waterloo was fought, one who was on the field, a veteran of the unexpected sex. , The story of Mrs. Todd has been told years ago in the "Pall UMa," when the old lady was interviewed at her humble home within a stono's -throw of Spitalfields Church. "Many things that have happened later on I have forgotton," she said, " but I can remember that day as I can any-thing in my life. I see the Duke now,, when I think of it; and I hear the drum the horrible drum-that calledt'he men to the battle. We were in otur tent, but my brother and I peeped out all day long, and my mother too, for my father was in the battle, and s hu could do nothing but watch and watch. He was not killed on the first day; but on the second day, half- acihour before the battle was over, a bullet struck ,his head. He was not far from our tent, and we sawr him afterwards, his poor lead almos...
CRICKET. WARRAGUL v. DARNUM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
CRICKET. WARRAGUL v. DARNUM. --0 This match was continued last Saturday, and resulted in a win for the Darnum by 21 runs. - Of course, it was not the Warragul Cricket Club's premier 1895 team, as two of the latter team played with Darnum (Willis and Gray). although Willis met his Waterloo in Howell, who bowled him twice for 0. Gray made his presence knownt .by securing 5 wickets for 47 runs, and bowling throughout- the innings splendidly. An unpleasant occurence happened in the way Ryan was given out. Of course it was most unfortunate, but it was a mistake made on the part of the umpire. In the second innings of the Darnum they lost 9 wickets for 55 runs, principally owing to the splendid bowling of Howell (4 for 17), and also the good fielding of the whole team. Being practically an off match it does not in any way discount the previous good record of the Warragul club who have just closed with an unbeaten record. A full report and averages for the season will appear in an early is...

Sawmilling at Crossover. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
Sawmilling at Crossover. Despite the severe depression in the timber trade, and the low prices for sawn timber, yielding little, if any, more than working expenses, the two sawmills at Crossover have managed to keep going. Messrs. Fuhrman's mill near the station employs about eight hands cutting a proportionately small quantity of timber weekly, while Messrs. Mapleson and Sous find employment for about double that number of hands. The latter are going over the forest a second time, and cutting trees omitted in the first falling. It is also intended to extend the bush tramway for souse distance further to reach timber rather too remote for hauling by bullock teaihis. The timber cut by both mills is chiflya species ofiron-bark. known as silver-top and:messmate, and the principal market is Ballaratand Melbourne.
LARDNER. SUNDAY-SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 9 April 1895
LARDNER. SUNDAY-SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. -o (FRnO OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The first anniversary of the ~arra gul WVest Undenominational Sunday school took place on Sunday afternoon last, the state-school building where the Sunday-school is held, being crowded. The schoolroom was beautifully decorated with ferns, wild shrubs, flowers, etc., and showed plainly that willing hands had been at work, and that no pains had been spared to make the effect as beautiful at it looked-a perfect picture. This, we understand, was mainly due to the children, who rolled up in force early on Saturday morning laden with their contributions. The Rev. E. D.Fethers, who conducted the meeting, opened with anappropriate hymn, a'ter which, in addressing those present, he said he felt honored by the call which he had received to address them that after noon, and congratulated the teachers on having such a class of intelligent children to impart the good word to. He praised the little ones for their care and zeal ...

At the sani"e time "they piawed the ground, got seriously angry,' and had it not beenrifor.a good deal of restraint on thie part of tlieir masters,: tould have rushed furiously against each other.
