Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891

Strath Creek. I[r0oM ov0 OWN CoaDreroRDNNT. The creamery will soon be a concrete fact at the Strath. The contractor was here on Tuesday making the necessary preliminary preparations; and those who had given credit to the recent rumor that the project had been * knrcked on the head' will receive possibly with some surprise, the intimation that the carpen ters will be in full operation next week with a view to the structure being com plete for work by Christmas. A very interesting and evenly contested cricket matc h was played on the local ground on Saturday last, between North Broadford and the Flowderdale C.C. Flowerdale went first to the stumps and compiled the decent score of 71 runs. R. Hibbins 18. made by fine, free cricket and T. Munro's at (not out), made by persistent stonewalling were the highest scores for that side. If I might be al. lowed the observation I would suggest that if the latter player were to use a little more judgment in running between the wickets he would en...

AND RilDn ClREE TIYMS. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, DECEMBER Is, 18gr. Wanted: A Broadford Water Trust. THa receding and stagnant waters of our local tanks and the prospect of the inevitable water cart ordeal, once again unpleasantly reminds us that summer heat and drought has r. turned, and sets one wondering whether any thing practical will ever he done to wards securing for Broadford a pure and abundant water supply. While other towns around us are acting upon the belief that an Australian leality is inexorably fated as to the degree of its development, by the quantity and the quality of its water, and are setting vigorously to work at great expense to grapple with the problem it presents, Broadford seems to be perfectly content to grumble and endure. Whilst the most formidable natural difficulties have to be encountered in other places, this township fortunately enjoys the advantage of having a bountiful and perennial stream of pare water running through the municipality.

The First Death. ---4- S, ,TIL)rYSLttirE THE FilNCi Ti ; La Farlede was'a little village' of: four or Ive hundred -inhabitants between Amiens sod Abbeville., Had in Autum, gay in spring lime, clean, silent, stretched along 'a wide road, its houses low, with roofs black and pointed;-sdriounded by swampy meadows and crowned by a fdrest of oaks, it was a sonterpart 'of all the other 'villages of Picardy. Yes, it was a counterpart, even to tha'coquettish chateau, its walls of red brick, ;to window casings of whitb stone, that is always part and parcel of a Picsardian land. o ape, and that stands a thousand metres, more or less, from the outskirts of those liny provincial hamlets. La Fiarlede, at the moment this story opens, was in a hubbub of excitement, for a cemetery, their own individual burying ground, had been achieved at last. The Monicipal Council, which had 's long hoarded the funds drawn from the taxpayers for the purpose,hod finally seen fit to pur chase u a ncient field, to w...

Maginnis (Tannery) having won the toss elected to bat, and the first to appear at the wickets were E. Dixon and Sydenham, who 'faced the bowling of H. Fothergill and T. Hardy. The batsmen quickly set to work and began to show the spec. tators that there was nothing like'leather,' as it looked as if they intended to camp at the wickets for the remainder of the afternoon. The batsmen, who were ex ceptionally luckywere at length separated the first wicket falling for 65, Dixon com piling 35 in a very creditable manner. Sydenham played well for 48, Maginnis 22 and Dunphy 11, being the principal sco...

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891

Sprlmg Valley. :0: (FROM OUR OWN CORRBSPONDINT.] Our dairy farmers are just now asking themselves in a very practical manner why Spring Valley should be obliged to continue with the ancient system of making butter. Just recently the Yea Butter Factory Co. taking advantage of the right moment made overtures with our dairymen for the erection of a creamery here on the condition that we succeed in raising 500 sheres with a milk supply of 300 cows. Those are rather high figures; but two of our energetic neighbours -Messrs. G. H. and J.J. Evans-took it upon themselves to canvass the neighborhood. with the result that at the close of the first day's solicitation they had secured 400 shares with some 400 cows. Elated by their sue, cess and convinced that more can be sub. scribed, they are about to make another raid, in the confident expectation of realizine a total of 600 shares and about 700 cows. The farmers are taking up the matter with most encouraging enthusiasm and as evidence of tha...

An Old Architect's Story. TOLD BY KIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891

An .Old Architect's Storyt:" TOLD BY KIlOELY, Long ago, when New' York was only half as big as it is now, I had an adventure. I* was only fifteen years old, and, like all noys, 1 had a great deal of curiosity. 'My ~irenta lived in the suburbs of tie city, and not far away, not more than five good blocks, a new building had just been erected, ? It was on the summit of a low hill, over which the street now rune, but then it stood alone. The builder was a very stern and dootator. ial sort of a man, and did'not like.boys, and though I once.or twice tried to enter the building for the innocent purpose of admiring it, I was never permitted to do so. I used to look at the building with envious eyes after it was locked and boaided up, and one day when I seaw workmen enter wnth a kettle of roof paint, I followed them, and, to my delight, wae unnoticed. Thby went up stairs, and out upon the roof, bf course, and I examined all the rooms. , : At last I reached. the upper floor, and entered soid...

About ,8,oo were sold to-day, whih consisted chiefly of middling and useful qualities, with several pens of prime.

The Bank Panic. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 December 1891

Tho Bank Panic. The great financial collapse which was the one engrossing topic of interest in business circles all last week has subsided, and the affairs of the various institutions have undergone a searching examination with satisfactory results. It is now clearly seen that several of the banks and societies affected were in an excellent position, but having invested in real estate on terms of repayment extending over years, they were utterly unable to cope with the unprecedented and simultaneous demands for cash created by the frigh. tened shareholders. The Federal Build ing Society last Friday gave their de positors deposit receipts for any associated bank for the full amount of their accounts for one year, bearing interest at the rate of six and a half per cent. per annum, which satisfied the majority of callers. The County o0 Bourke Permanent Building Society was open for the re ceipt of deposits on the same day and a large number availed themselves of the opportunity to tran...
