An American Snake Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

An American Snake Story. -o.-- Fishing and hunting are recognised as Florida's favotitepastimes, quietly obeervee the San Francisco" Chronicle," asa prelude to a blood.curdling snake story. It pro. ceeds :-Among the many enxpaeunes which have been met with recently none excels the horrible ordeal which two men from the North went through a few days ago, says a St. Augustine despatch. The two left town on a fish ing tour to go about sixty miles from here. All along the stream is a barren wilderness of scrubby undergrowth, boulders, rocks and stones. Being tired and sorefooted after their day's journey the men made themselves comfortable on the surface of a moss. grown rock. After a hearty meal they both fell asleep. One was shortly afterwards awakened by S03lETIlING CHOKING 11131, and feeling found his strange collar to be cold and slimy.

THE ARREST OF SLIDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

THE ARE8T OF 8LIDER, 1 BillyHaven wso no ordinary burglar. His i theory was that if a man wished to make a suacess of his profession he needed to uae his I brain rathtr than his muscle. It was all 3 right enough, when starting out to commit a burglary to take a knife with y'u, or a e loaded club, or a pistol, but Billy claimed that the doing of this showed a lack t of mental ingenuity. Any muscular fool can bludgean the senses out of a half- . awakened househu,ldcr aroused from his first deep eleep by the noisy entrance of a thief 1 through the kitchen window, but blud geoning Billy looked upon as clumsy I and unnecessary. The consequence was that Billy, by strict attention to business, : and the endeavor to please customers, soon began to build up for himself an enviable t reputation among the police. They never t caught sight of Billy, or his pals, but they i always recognised his handiwork by the ' neatness and dexterity of it. They didnot ' even know his name, but they called hi...

ItI We were not able to observe what the entire number of the sivages was, since the cave ioto which we went led Cat seaveral others where we caught glimpses of many of the wild tribe. We estimated that those among whom we were amounted to abaut five hundred, more than a half of whom were female warriors. Our appearance was the signal for the savages to raiue excited cries, which continued till we stood before Wimpai, who was partly our. roonded by a number of his armed women. The chief of our captors, who had received several severe burns and injuries through his fall, pressed forward, and telling Brst of our fight in the rocky paesage, afterwards spoke of his own rescue by Deniers, so we learnt from Hassan. Wimpairoee and lent upon his spear when the savage had concluded his account, and was evidently perplexed as to what course to pursue.

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

Melbolrnlie Letter. :o: [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J Tttl first volume of aIr. Stead's latest journalistic venture, " Borderland " is creating a stir, and already a number of gentlemen are forming a Psychical llesearcil Society in Melbourne, on the lines of the parent Society in London. The " Study of Spooks " will be the first business which the Society will take up, and it is not anticipated that there will be any dilliculty in enrolling a large number of citizens who will eagerly enter into the investigation. The majority of people scoff at the statements made by Spiritists, but the fact still remains that very strange things do take place at seances, and are vouched for by persons of unimpeachable character. " P'eople who argue against the authenticity of ghosts, on the ground that they violate the known laws of matter, reason on the assumption that there are no ideas of matter which they do not know, or, in other words, that there are no more dis coveries to be made in the domai...

Chinese Carvers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

Chinese Carvers. ---==--o- Nothing is wasted in China. The stones of various fruits and the shells of nuts are cleaned, dried and carved into ornaments of the moat graceful kind. Among the stones used are the olive, plum, peach and cherry, and~l the shells the walnut and the cocoanut. The stones are collected with care ; each muot exceed a certain standard of size, proportion, hardness and weight. They are dried elowly and at such heat as not to crack or sprout, and are then ready for the carver. The designer makes a rough outline of the future group orpicture and hands it over to his boys or apprentices. These work with great rapidity and soon block out the de sign, cutting through the hard, ligneous tissue, and then extract the kernel. A second treatment now takes place to dry the interior of. the shell, as well as to pre vent the fine lining of the interior from under going decomeosition. This completed, the designer sketches a seaond outline, and also indicates by his pencil or ...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. Germs in Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

, ACRICULTURAL COLUMN. Germs in Milk. --0-- The discovery of those extremely minute and low organisms which are commonly known as germs, and scientifically as microbes has been )m (writes Professor Henry Stewart) the means of unduly exciting some of the dairy experts who have permitted themselves to be overcome with all sorts of fears of danger from the presence of these invisible bodies in milk. And "palsied aud changed to a jelly with the act of fear," so to speak, as far as their mental power is con cerned, they have communicated their alarm to dairymen and the consumers of milk to such an extent as to almost persuade them that this common daily food can no longer be used with safety, either in its simple form or in its ultimate products of cheese and butter. Now, the simple fact that these microbes are no new generation, but have existed always, and that milk has been used "from time immemorial" without any ex traordinarily serious consequences, it might seem that the knowledge ...

THE SEAMY SIDE. BEFORE A METROPOLITAN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893

THE SEAMY SIDE. BEFORE A METROPOLITAN COURT. In a recent article, written "Before the Beak" we retailed some reminiscences of the Melbourne City Court, and described the process by which offenders are "booked," literally and figuratively. EL'n we have by no means exhausted all there is to be said, with some interest andnot a little profit, perhaps, of this dust bin of crime and squalor and degradation. \Ve could not recommcend the City Court as a place wherein " to spend a happy day," like the Bellarine lGar dens, " wots down the biay,' but still an hour in the Court on a Monday imorning yields a kaleidoscopic variety of human character and its vagaries which must perforce call forth pity and smiles, and sustain in terest as thoroughly as the best built melodrama ever produced at the Adelphi or Old Drury. Indeed, it is like melo drnuta without the " melo." So step up, ladies and gentlemen, into Manager Pantonl's Theatre, and let us see what is to be played " for this time only" this...
