MAX O'RELL AND HIS SNAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
MAX O'RELL AND HIS SNAKE. Max O'Rell confesses to an uncon trollable fear of snakes, and when, in Australia, -he slept one night in a region which the landlord confessed was infested with them. He lay down to rest in a very unhappy frame of mind. Heat and mosquitoes kept him awake for some time, but finally he dropped off to sleep, and awoke so hot that it seemed preferable to give his hands and arms over to the mosquitoes rather than to remain wrapped up in the bedclothes. So, keeping the sheet still over his face, he put his arms outside and laid hands on the quilt. He writes : My blood froze in my veins. I had laid my hand on a snake stretched out beside me on the bed. Yes, a snake, a real long, round snake, cold and motionless as death. A cold perspira tion broke out all over me. I was glued to the bed paralysed with fright. The snake stirred not a muscle, nor did I. By means of an imperceptible movement of my knees, Icame to the conclusion that it must be about three feet long....

THE Warragul Guardian WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED The Warragul News. FRIDAY, APRIL 26TH, 1895. NOTES AND COMMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
THE WIT" WInCII Is INCORPOBATED FRIDAY, APRIL 26Th, 1895. NOTES AND COMMENTS MiEi of pessiniistic tendencies are beginnhing to wonder if the depression: has. dome to stay for good. : They have hoped against hope so long that the heart has at last become sick and they see nothing but"doubt and darkness looming in the future. For -this no man can chide them. Their position rather entitles them to the utmost commiseration. It is the inevitable result of adverse circumstances of an exceptionally sustained character and can no more be fought against successfully than can the steady pro gress of some insidious disease. What such men require is an antidote in the form of definite and unmistakable indications of a return to better times. This is provided, in a measure, by the statementin a Melbourne contemporary that it has been generally admitted in commercial circles that there has been a steady, if not very rapid, improve meit in business in Melbourne during the last six months. The coun...

THE WARRAGUL FIRE. Colonel Freeman, representing the differentInsurance Companies interested in the destruction of property by the fire which occurred at Warragul on Saturday night, arrivedin the town on Tuesday. and mnads an inspection of the scene with a viei to settling the claims of the parties concerned. We understand that his suggestions in the matter of compensation were regarded with favor and that there is likely to be no difficulty in arriving at a settlement of the various claiins.

FLAX CULTIVATION. THE OPINIONS OF EXPERTS. SOME CANDID CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
FLAX CULTIVATION. THE OPINIONS OF EXPERTS. ---o- SOME CANDID CRITICISM. [BY oUR MHLBoURtE CORRESPONDENT.] I have been shown some correspondence which has passed between Mr. J. J. Wilson, of this city, and a home irm, to whom he consigned a quantity of excellently prepared flax fibre. The home people write in terms highly flattering regarding the consignment. Some of the samples were cream color, others nut brown, and others again a beautiful "blay." Mr. Wilson tells me that nothing could be more ill-advised than to consign inferior fibre to the United Kingdom, and he speaks strongly of the harm done throngh " bookmen " and amateurs being allowed to deal with consignments of flax, Some South Gippsland samples grown under the in struction given by the Government expert, possess no commercial value whatever. Even for the roughest class of manufac ture they are useless. The pamphlet on flax, issuedby the Department of Agri. culture, is misleading, and appears to have been compiled by a ...

OUR LETTER BOXi! [We distinctly wish it to be understood that we do not necessarily uphold the views expressedbycorrespondents.under this heading.] THE LESSONS OF THE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR Sm,--The intelligent observer of the fire in Victoria-street, on Saturday night, will be piepared to admit that it ought to teach many useful lessons. In the first place, permit me to state that I should be very sorry, and extremely ungrateful, were I to depreciate the voluntary efforts of the members bf the Fire Brigade, who, at no small. risk to themselves, labored to cope with the fire fiend, and fought man. fully under no ordinary difficulties. One most important lesson tor the future is that the Brigade, with the assistance of the police, bught to take possession of the premises actually on fire, and also of those threatened, and thus prevent the over earnest mob from ransacking a building before it is in danger, and thus doing more damage to the contents by the utter indiscriminate and wanton ...
SOCIETY GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
SOCIETY GOSSIP. "-------- I must mention a rumor, says our Melbourne correspondent, which has reached me respecting an ex-member who has seen much trouble since circumstances arose, which made it inadvisable that he should seek a renewal of the votes of the electors in one of the constituencies of Greater Mel bourne which he represented. Dame Rumor states that the gentleman referred to has inherited £70,000, and that very soon he will revert to the same high:class style of living which he. observed a very few years back. I know that he is gradually rising up the ladder from which he fell somewhat suddenly, and it is not at all improbable that he will again hold a seat in Parlia ment. Another ex-member of the Legislative Assembly, is, I regret to say, sinking instead of rising. The other day he offered his services to the proprietor of a provincial paper "for anything you, like to give me." He was one of the victims in the very early days of the bocm collapse. His knowledge f fipanci...

THE DAILIES DISTILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
THE DAILIES DISTILLED. Lady Brassey, says an English paper, is delighted with the idea of going to Australia, but her many and sincere friends are far from delighted with the prospect of losing her for five years. "General" Booth, of the Salvation Army, has decided to pay another visit to the Australian colonies. He will also visit South Africa. He starts on his trip' in August. If State pensions, which aet 'present amount to about £270,000" jiPannium. were capitalised, and those entitled to them bought out with money obtained from a loan at 31 per cent., Mr. Wynne calculates that either £168,000 or £134,000 per annum on the present annual outlay could be saved. Details of an Alabama lynching are to hand. Three negroes and two negresses, suspected of the murder of a white man, were done to death by a party of lynchers; who seized the accused while they were in the custody of the sheriff. The victims. were taken out into a forest and there hanged to trees. The revolver practice custo...
The Moe Caoch. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
The Moe Caoch. Much indignation is felt at Moe at the action of the Traralgon Shire Council in agitating that the mail service to Walhalla, which at present goes from here and Toongabbie on alternate days, should be substituted for a daily service from Traralgon. A public meeting, which was largely attended, was held on Saturday night to consider the matter. A deputa tion was appointed to wait on the shire council to secure their co-operation, and a memorial is to be drawn upand presented to the authorities. The ladies who intend forming a re freshment committee in connection with the Hospital ball are desired to meet at the Shire-hall this afternoon at 3 o'clock. A village settlement is to be formed on a portion of the reclaimed Moo Swamp, near Trafalgar. The -settlement is on new lines. The holders are to get the land tor three years for nothing, and have then to pay a marketable price on ex tended terms. A smoke night in connection with the local branch of the A.N.A. was held in ...
Cruelty to Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
Cruelty to Pigs. A case of cruelty to pigs was brought before the notice of Sergeant Hillard on the arrival of the Melbourne train at Warragul yesterday morning. It appears that two young pigs, about four months old, and well developed, were consigned from Williamstown to Coalville in a box 1 .inches.long. 18 inches wide, and a foot deep. The top was boarded down in such a way as to almost exclude the air, and inside the box was a quantity of sawdust. The height of the box was .not sufficient to enable the pigs to stand up.in it, and before the animals reached Spencer-street one of them was dead. It had evidently been smothered, and had notthe guard of the Gippsland train released the second pig .when reaching Garfield, it woulda doubtless have been smothered also. 'It was in such an exhausted condition that it could hardly stand. On arriving at Warragul the box, with its contents of one live and one deadpig, was shown to Sergeant Hillard, who found there were only four cubic feet o...

' The Allambee Suicide. .The funeral of the late Miss Faulkner, who committed suicide under the pathetic circumstances reported in our last issue, I took place on Tuesday, when the remains were followed to the Warragul Cemetery: bya largegathering of sympathetic friends. The Rev. J. H. Angus officiated at the gravejand there were visible indications among the company of the grief occasioned by ! the distressing occurence. Much indignation is manifested in the district at the circumstances under which the fatal act was committed, and expressions of pity for the unfortunate woman and sympathy with the family are heard on every hand. The adjourned inquiry will be resumed at the Court House by Mr. D. Conner J.P. to-day.
SOUTH WARRAGUL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
SOUTH WARRA(UL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The farmers of Sea View are taking steps in the right direction. They are about to start a cheese factory on the plans of management of Mr. T. J. Nestor, of South Warragul, which have proved a great success on his own dairy farm. There will be between 250 and 300 cows supply ing at Sea View. The feed is very plentiful since the late rains, but the road is getting bad. There are more complaints about the West Tarwin road; especially at the gulch, which is of no benefit to the ratepayers of the' Warragul shire. Most of. the South Warragul farmers are sowing their cultivation paddocks under grass, as grain crops, don't pay at present prices.
Attacked by a Boar. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
Attacked by a Boar. An elderlyman named Joshua Robinson, a resident of Dronin South, was attacked by a boar, which had wandered into one of his paddocks, on Saturday night last. Robinson was endeavoring to turn the animal out, when it turned and attacked him, and as the night was dark he was unable to get out of its way before it had laid open his knee joint. The injury was so severe that professional attention had to be given.
LONDON PRICES FOR POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
LONDON PRICES FOR POULTRY. : While the quotations for Victorian poultry are of the most practical interest to Victorian producers, it is also to follow the general course of the London market for similar articles produced by our competitors, especially when an indication is hereby to be obtained of the normal tendencies of the London market at a given time of the year. Shipments lately made and about tobe made will arrive in London in May and June, and the course of wholesale prices for a few of the prin cipallines in London during May and June last year is accordingly of interest, the descriptions quoted being of the ordinary quality dealt in on the London market, and similar to the best 'Victorian production. Surrey chickens, large, which in the middle of February, 1894, was selling at a5s.to 7s per pair, realised in May from 7's to 18s per pair, but in June a decline set in, and on 1st June only 7s to 12s per pair and in the middle of June only 7s to 10s' per pair was realised. B...
Apples. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian — 26 April 1895
Apples. An example of what some men are able to do with land was illustrated in a dis play of apples at the Lands Department on Wednesday. The fruit was part of a crop grown by Mr. James Barnard in the Beaconsfield Ranges, near Pakenham. Nearly two years ago Mr. Barnard selected 55 acres in the ranges, and by dint of hard work cleared the land of some of the heavy timber and planted apple trees. Already the results have been almost phenomenal. Despite the youth of the trees they have produced large well-flavored fruit absolutely free from disease. The fruit is of well-known varieties recommended for expors and home consumption. The apples are an object lesson in what intelligent culti vation on suitable soil is able to accomplish.
