"BIRCHGROVE." A LOCAL FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
" BIRCHGROVE." A LOCAL FARM. -o Mr. Henry R. Rogers. of Birch grove, about three miles north from Warragul, is a representative land owner in the district, says the Agri cultural reporter of the "Leader". The farm has a frontage to the road to Buln Buln, and is 200 acres in extent. A very nice flock of South downs, numbering about 60, is k;ept, and in future Mr. Rogers intends devoting a good deal of attention to breeding rams of this strain, believing that a ready sele at remunerative prices will be obtained for them. If the meat freezing industry becomes fairly established, and of this there is every prospect, there is certain to be a great demand for rams to cross with merino ewes. Opinions difier as to which is the cross best adapted to produce sheep suitable for the export trade, some pinning their faith entirely to the longwool sheep, while others prefer rams of one of the Down breeds. There is no doubt that the Hampshire, Shrnpshire or Southdown cross with the merino producer...
LOCAL MINES. RED HILL CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
LOCAL MINES. RED HILL CREEK. At this Creek, to the south of Neerim, mining in all shapes and forms is being proceeded with, but the lucky ones. are few and far-between. There are at present about 100 men on the ground, and out of this number, from enquiries made, we ascertained that not one-third are making enough to keep them in food, and when livin" out there only costs aliout u(s per week, it proves conclusively, to use a diggers' set phrase, 1" the game's not what it's cracked up to-be." Last week a little stir was made when the startling news got abroad that two miners (new comer's too) had struck it rich, viz., 2ozs. 14dwts;, and as the poor fellows were in need, nobody begrudge'd them their bit of luck. This find helped to put fresh vigor forth, and even some of the " unemployed" looked as if they would tackle.a" clay-holo,'" but the excitement soon subsided. New men are arriving daily, but thui depaitures about balance things. A new store was in course of erection last Sunda...
ORIGIN OF THE WEDDING CAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
ORIGIN OF THE WEDD ING CAKE. Our wedding cake is the remains of a custom whereby a Roman bride held in her left hand three whcat ears, and many centuries later an English bride wore on her head a chaplet of wheat. The attendant girls threw corn, either in grains or in small bits of biscuit or cake, upon the heads of the newly married couple, and the guests picked up the piecs and ate them. Such was tle beginning of the wedding cake, which did not come into general use until the eighteenth century, and was then composed of solid blocks laid together and iced all over with sugar so that when the outer crust was broken over the bride's head the cakes inside fell don the floor, and they were then distributed among the company. Eleven hundred houses said to be vacant in iiruswick out of 6300. Dox'T advertise in the WAtRRnAUL Gu.AI:I,IA unless you want to be swamped with replies.

AROUND WARRAGUL. AS OTHERS SEE US. (THE LEADER.) [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
AROUND WARRACUL. AS OTHERS SEE US. --0 (TuE LEADER.) Taking an impartial view of the present condition of affairs around Warragul I am convinced that a great many persons hold more land than they can profitably make use of, and they would be better off, and the State would likewise be a gainer, were the holding of each individual not more than 100 acres in extent. While there are perhaps no large estates in the common acceptation of the term in the district there are properties comprising more than 1000 acres each, of which the owners are certainly not making profitable use. The big timber has undoubtedly been killed, but the scrub in many instances still remains, or, after being burned off once, it has been allowed to grow again, and will now be very diflicult to deal with. Such places are unsightly, and are injurious to well improved farms in the vicinity. They harbor WALLABY, KANGAROO RATS and other vermin, which make nocturnal raids on growing crops and do a great deal damage in...

MAKING NOVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
MAKING NOVELS. Interesting revelations of the American business of novel making have been made public in the law courts of the States. A' woman novelist, who was sued for a debt, wrote one book of which 100,000 copies were sold. She testified that she received £200 for it. Another book reached 50,000 copies, and she got £50 for it. She is now employed by a book and story manufactory, receiv ing £8 per week. She is given the shell or skeleton of a story, just as artificers in all trades are given patterns, and she is expected to fill up the chinks of one story every two weeks, and her employers do not care whether she buys, begs, borrows or steals her dialogue and situations.
LONG GULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
LONG GULLY. This gully is delebrated for "patclhes"--no offence to the miners meant-several good " bits" having been got in the past. Paddocking and fossicking is the order here, with the exception of Gannon and party, Ren die and party, and Teesdale and party, all of whom are sinking and driving, the latter, who are now down 60 odd feet, but have not yet bottomed, ex pect their claim, from indications, to turn out good. We hope their wishes will be verified. None of the miners here, however, are banking.

" These diggings," said an old miner, " are all worked out, and avhat's 'ahted is new ground-there's heaps of it, but who's going to discover it ?" :- And the old man is right, too, the whole place is honeycombed-not a nook- orbcranny seemingly left untried.

"Pepper with Meat." [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
"Pepper with Meat." San Antonio, Te.e, presents in its older sections a peculiar illustration of how cuis toms survive long after their causes have. ceased. One hundred and sixty-two years ago or thereabouts, some fifteen families of Canary Island Spaniards, with a larger, number of Tlascalan Indians, started the old city. Each race brought its local ctsu? toms, and from their combination resulted the San Antonio customs of today. There are open air restaurants on the Plaza des Armes as in the Canary isles; cigarettes of tobacco and cornshuck a s among the old Mexican Indians, and queer dishes of Span-. ish meats and Mexican peppers. At the tables comely Mexican girls act as waiters and serve up "chile con came," "tamales," "enchilades" and other .truly native dishes. Observe that the "chile" is mentioned before the "came," which is very appropriate indeed, for to -an American taste there is much more of it It was in deed "pepper with meat," and not "metat with pepper," as "carne co...

Thinks He's a Baby. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 10 April 1894
Thinks He's a Baby. Apparently there is no end to the vagaries of monomaniaca In the Blockley alms house, Philadelphia, is a man once promi-s nent in the city council and weighing 250 pounds, who imagines thathe isa baby and enjoys himself sprawling on the floor, play. ing with a pillow and the like. Some visit ors were rjently passing through the wards, when the "big baby" began to cry bitterly. "What's the matter?" one of them asked in alarm. "Boo-hool" cried the 250-pound baby; "you ought to be ashamed of yourselves. All you big men standing there and letting a little baby like me le on the floor. Boo-hool"
