His statement that only,threemembers of the "public" were presenti and the deductions he ;makes in' consequeneo are plausible, enough, but were he to take the trouble; he would find tiat the greater portion of the subscribers are strongly in favor of turning the present rooms into a public hall. It may.interest him, also to.learn that the committee of the Athenl um were elected to Iconduct its affairs on business principles, and that as " the snug 'littleorooms" are producing very little revenue,,it is their duty to use other meanis of attracting it.

Flax Cultivation.' One'of the enterprising farmers of the Warragul district has practically decided to enter largely into the cultivation of flax and to procure'the requisite machinery and plant for preparing and treating the fibre. He naturally anticipates that as soon as the.facilities are provided for treating the fibre locally, many of his neighbors will ;also adopt the new industry, and that'he will thus secure a tolerably large supply of the raw material for the manufacturing process on mutually advantageous terms. This proposal on the part of the farmer alluded to, is independent of the suggestion to start the industry in Warragul on the co-operative principle. There are in. dications that large quantities of fibre and oil yielding seeds will, ere long, be' raised in the Warragul dist...

Easing off the Selectors. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 April 1895
- Easing off the Selectors. A correspondent informs us that one of the banking establishments is apparently ,desirous of coming to a mutually bonefi cial arragement with those of the farmers who are heavily indebted to the institution in qgiestion. It is recognised that to foreclose on the borrower who obtained large advances in the more prosperous times, and eject' him from his. holding, does not improve the bank's position in the least,' in fact, recent experience has demonstrated that forced sales of farm lands rarely realize the amount of the mortgage. The bank is now disposed to be 4 little more lenient with the indus trious but involved selector, and not only proposes to reduce the rate of interest but will allow him to remain in possession of his farm if he wll meet the interest when 'due and'reduce the principal as he is able. This is a step in the right direction and if the farmer isi lso given'some guarantee that he will not be molested for say 5 years.he will. in all. pro...
Claim against the Council. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 April 1895
Claim against the Council. At the meeting of the Warragul Shire Council on Wednesday, a claim of £8 for loss of a horse, made by Mr H. Hansen, was briefly discussed. The ground of the claim was that the animal had broken its leg through the defective crossing over Hazel Greek, near the Warragul B3utter Factory. The- crossing was laid about two years ago with the object of facilitat ing the watering of horses and stock at the creek, but it is maintained that it has since been allowed to get out of repair. Councillors were divided on the question of liability. Some were evidently nuder the impression that Mr Hansen had the law entirely on his side, while others, in view of the fact that the crossing was never intended for general traffic, held the opposite view, and expressed a desire that legal opinion should be obtained, as similar cases would in all probability crop up. This course was eventually adopted.

THE VANISHING EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 12 April 1895
THE VANISHING EGGS. A .Toorak gentleman was puzzled recently to know' why his fowls never laid. Being in Melbourne one day he purchased two dozen eggs and took them out to his suburban residence, and at night he slipped half-a-dozen of these into the nests. " Well, gardener," he said next morning;-" none of these fowls have laid.yet. 9"' "No, sir,". said the gardener sadly, shaking his. head. "They are very slow to lay, sir, at this time of the year." The same thing occured on the two following nlights and mornings. On the fourth morning the gardener ap peared with one egg, saying-" They'll soon begin now, sir; here is one of them already." " Well," said the master; "It is a poor beginning. 'I have, put four-and twenty eggs into the nests myself.'
