QUEEN CHRISTINA. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

QUEEN CHRISTINA. The women of the IJapsburg family have alw.ays been famed for their men tal power and strength of mind, and again and again in modern times the de-?cendants of Maria Thorlsa have had occasion to prove their powers of en durance. The young girl who was des timned tre become the wife of Alphonso XI.., iLnd under whose sole rule Spain enjoyed a greater measure of peace and prosperity than had been the case for the last t -o centuries, was the daughter of the Archduchess Elizabeth, by her second husband, the Archduke Charles Ferdinand. And it is a fact that, until the marriage of the Princess who is now Queen Regent of Spain, all the family marriages for some generations had been contracted among cousins; for. although the Archduchess Eliza beth's first husband had been a Duke of At'-dena--in fact, a brother of the Comtesse de Chambord--she had mar ried, en secondes noces, her own cousin, the _Archduke Charles Ferdinand. Al though the future Queen of Spain had a half-si...

ST. PAUL'S CHURCH WELCOME TO THE REV. R. BUCHANAN. A SOCIAL EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

ST. PAUL'S CHURCH WELCOME TO THE REV. R. BUCHANAN. A SOCIAL EVENING. The members of the congregation of St. Paul's Church, Warragul, and their friends from the other denom inations, assembled in the Masonic Hall on Wednesday evening, to welcome their new clergyman and his amiable wife-the Rev. and Mrs Buchanan to their new home in Warragul. The hall had been tastefully decorated with fern fronds, flowers, and wattle blossom, while over the dais, in large letters, was the cheery greeting " wel come." Indeed that pleasing senti ment seemed to pervade the proceed ings of the whole evening, and it was fully appreciated by those towards whom it was extended. Mr J. L. Parkes-President of the Shire-oceupied the chair, and in opening the proceedings said that as a member of the Board of Guardians he had been requested by his fellow Guardians to preside over the social gathering that evening. He was very pleased to see so many of their friends around them, for it was an indication of the war...

THE FRIEBERG EXPERT. I. 1My only neighbor up the gulch was Looney the Fool, a young man with iarge riund spectacles and a full-moon smile. Looney had never put up the drinks in his life, were gloves when he worked in the shaft, knew no more of silverminieg the- a six months' infant, talked like an idiot when he talked at all, made no friends, knew nobody, had no registered vote, bought nothing in Amber, sold nothing, and spent his Sundays collecting twigs, leaves, weeds, and all sorts of rubbish, which he kept pressed out in a book of blotting-paper. All up tlhe mountains on both sides of the Gulch the granite was 'rich as you please in silver and carbona'es. Every vein in the camp was e-sy to work by tunnelling. fortunes were being mnade on every side, and every man witll the sense of a horse seemed to speculate in mines or town lots except Looney. There was one streak of ground in the (dstrict which nobody but a natural born idiot would have thought of pros pecting, and that was t...

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 thin war-in both cases the enemy was thoroughly routed and his active c...

THE MIUNICIPAL ELEC TIONS. WARRAGUL SHIRE. COUNCILLOR CAUNTER RE TURNED. The ratepayers of the North Riding enjoyed a monopoly of the excitement in connection with the municipal elec tions in the Warragul shire. In the Central Riding, Mr. M'Neil was given a walk-over, and Mr. Stockdale was accorded a similar honor in the South Riding. In the North Riding, how ever, the seat was contested by a trio of candidates-Messrs A. D. Beard, R. B. Caunter, and A. Lillico. A considerable amount of interest was manifested in the contest and so far as Mr. Caunter and Mr. Lillico were concerned there was no lack of energy in the fight. Mr. Beard, how ever, was placed at a disadvantage in consequence of illness and his inability to conduct a personal canvass. His defeat was therefore to be expected, but considerable doubt existed as to which would be successful of the two remaining candidates, and almost up to the last the issue was very uncertain. Mr. Lillico led at the Warragul town ship booth by...

MISTAKEN IDENTITY. AN OLD WARRAGULITE ARRESTED. SUB-INSPECTOR HILLARD IN EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 30 August 1898

MISTAKEN IDENTITY. AN OLD WARRAGULITE ARRESTED. SUB-INSPECTOR HILLARD IN EVIDENCE. What may happen to a man in Victoria! For some weeks past a notification from the Boston detective police has been posted at the Melbourne detective office and at the police sta- tions, respecting a man wanted for a heavy embezzlement in the States, and an elaborate description of the offender, together with the offer of a reward of 2000 dol. for his apprehen- sion. It is not known that any special reason exists for supposing that the embezzler has come to Australia, the papers pertaining to him apparently having been distributed far and wide. Constable McCaig, of Frankston, was so impressed with the resemblance of a person whom he met to the man wanted that he placed him under arrest. In vain the man protested that he was neither a Bostonian nor an embezzler, but on the contrary has been employed for many years in Melbourne, and previously been in Warragul, and was well and favorably known to Sub-Ins...

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. YOUNG PEOPLE'S SOCIAL. AN ENJOYABLE GATHERING. A social, organised by the " Young Peoples' Society " in connection with the Presbyterian Church, was held at the Masonic Hall, on Wednesday even ing, and was well patronised, especially by the younger members of the con gregation. The Hall was prettily decorated with flags, and a novel arrangement of iinverted japanese umbnlrellas with bunches of jonquils tied to the enll of tach rib and sus pended from the roof, the effect of which, was as pretty as it was novel. The Rev. C. I. Hunter presided and in his opening remarks explained that the object of the meeting was the raising of funds by the Young People's Society to pay off the interest on the Church debt. The Society was in stituted some years ago, and the young people who compose it, have never failed to raise the money, and hand it into the Treasurer at the end of the year. (Hear hear.) He thought the idea of holding a social was a good one, for Scotch people ...
