GLADSTONE AND RUSKIN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
GLADSTONE AND RUSKiN. Canon Scott-Holland, in the "Com monwealth," gives an exceedingly inte resting account of the first occasion on which Mr Gladstone and Mr Ruskin met. It was at Hawarden about. 181, and the Canon arrived* by the same train as Mr Ruskin: "As we drove up." says Canon Scott-Holland, "I discovered he had the darkest view possible of his host. imbibed from the 'Master' Carlyle to whose imagination he figured, appa rently, as the symbol of all with which he was at war. Ruskin was, therefore, extremely timid and suspicious, and had secured, in view of a possible retreat; a telegram which might at any moment summon him home. This telegramn loomed largely the first day, and we were constantly under its menaces." But, as hour by.hour Ruskin got hap pier, the references to Its possible ar rival came more and more rarely, and finally it became purely mythical. The amusement of the meeting of the two, the Canon points out, lay In the ab solute contrast between them at every ...

THE HUSBAND'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
THEll HUSBAND'S STORY. This is what Professor Lacasse says: "It was a scene of horror. A large number of those who were below were unI:le to rea/ch the decks, and went down with the steamship. I saw a boat load of womeln go down. The accident happened a few yards from me. There were about forty women in the boat, but not o?e man in it, and, strange to say, the boat was launched without an oar. The women did not remain quiet in the boat. . To ecape the :pray from the waves that dashed against the lifeboat several of Ilhe women went to the other side of the boat and it capsized, and. every soul was lost. The screaming just as the boat turned over v.as terrific. Three of the women remained afloat for a few seconds and then disappeared. "I could not reach them from the raft I had no oars. and I expterienced great difficulty in keeping on the raft with my wife, who was senseless and prostrate by my side. I tried to restore her, but was unable to dtl so for some timel. I saw scores of peo...
ONCE UPON A TIME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
ONCE UPON A TIME. Two frogs found themselves in a pail of milk, and they could not jump out. One turned faint-hearted, and said to the other, " Good-bye, I sink, I die." Said his nervy, nousy chum, " Brace up, you duffer, keep jumpin', and see what turns up." So they kept on jumping up and down all night, and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter, and, lo I they escaped safe to land ! Applied to business, the froggy fable means this: The man who looks for bad times, and becomes dormant and faint-hearted directly the business outlook becomes cloudy, will not sur vive to see good times, for he lets a golden opportunity slip by. We have received for review the first number of the "West Gippsland Gazette," a new paper published at Warragul. The letterpress, being from new type, is perfect, and the contents of the number display the energy and ability of the proprietors. The journal is an eight page one, and should have a prosperous career. Korumburra Mail.
STRUGGLING SHIRES. SPECIAL SUBSIDIES PROPOSED METHOD OF DISTRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898
I ;RUGGLING SHIRES. SPECIAL SUBSIDIES PROPOSED METHOI) OF DISTRIBUTION. The Minister of Public Works explained recently to a deputation from a couple of country shires, that until the first item of the Budget proposal, was accepted by the Legislative Assembly, and a general sanction thereby given to the whole, he could not do anything towards distributing the £50,000 per annum provided for assisting struggling shires-those of the fourth, fifth and sixth classes. When the House agreed to the first item he would suggest that the muni cipalities concerned, cf which there were twenty nine, should proceed to prepare a schedule of works, each set out according to its urgency. Every application would then be considered on its muerits, as in the case of the works provided for under the Trea silry Bonds and Bush Fires Schemes. Municipalities, by following this course, would save his time as well as their own.
