To a Mule. O mule I Thou gaunt, grave, gawky Gatlling gun On fours I Thou lank, embodied lightning streak, All bail I (Be caroeful, Muses, ci his heels.) Thy drooping ears and languid eye, Most subtle beast, might well breed con. fidence. But thou shalt not obliquely launch thy heels At me, thou wily rogue I Great Scott I Iow I have sometimes seen th' unwary youth Of Airican descent hoist heavenward, Concerted, writhing, by the merciless hoof I Then thou wouldst turn thy luring, blinking eye To gaze upon the melancholy work, Or lure with basilisk glance some victim new. O mule I Star maker i Dealer in pyrotechnio novelties I Thou verily art loaded, cocked, and primed, From early morning till the steps Of dewy dusk imprint the sky with stars, I would not draw within The magic circle of thy cognisant heels For all the yellow gold that Snasta yields, Or silken freights that hither swim fromInd.

It.+' you tell him to call at a certain time, have his money ready. ARSENIC is excellent for the fees. If taken in oeulicient quantities, it never fails to whiten the complexion. Ir you are troubled with life's fitful fe.er, employ as young a physician as possible. With youth in his favor, he rarely fails to effect a cure. In the. matter of- contlagious disorder.. when you give a disease to a friend it should "'l be borne in mind that it is more blessed to give than to receive, and that the idea of being just before you are generous is a nar. row and selfish one.

CHAPTER XXVI. NE PLUS ULTRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 10 June 1892

CIAPTER XXVI. NE PLUS ULTRA. It was just three weeks afte " the affray at To Ranga that Peter Dusk found his way into the camp of the rebels at Judea. Smarting under their recent defeat at the Block Pahl, the Maories would have made short work of their prisoner had it not been for thefact that fitori had handed hin over to his Pakeha allies. True to his purpose, Colonel de P11al had the spy detective brought before him again on the evening of the day of his capture. Be side the Colonel sat the "Ferret," alias Joe Sharpe. The former waved his arm, a signal for the Maori guide to depart, and the three men were then left to gether. We have before stated that the detec tive was a keen fellow, with a nerve of iron, else it is not probable he would have risked his life by venturing into the stronghold of the Maori to find his Looking at the pair before him, Dusk saw thet his existence hung upon a mere thread, but his courage rose with the occasion, and lie decided upon a bold move if nece...

The Literary and Debating Society. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 10 June 1892

The Literary and Debating Society. Owing to the counter attraction of the recent election campaign the meetings of the local Debating Scciety have been allowed to lapse from the smallness of the attendance. In the hope of resusci tating its fallen fortunes a meeting took place last Tuesday night at the Me chaniks' Hall. The attendance was moderate, and the chair was taken by Mr. C. E. Lloyd, J.P., who in a brief ispeech announced the object of the meet" ng. He was in thorough sympathy with the aim and the work of the si iety and felt it would be a great pity to allow it to collapse. There had many interesting and sucessful meetings last winter when many important subjects had been dis cussed from excellent papers, and he hoped that if the meetings were con tinued the papers of the futu . would be of an equally enthusiastic character. Mr G. S. Taylor then read the minutes of the previous meeting, date I March 8th, and these were adopted on the motion of Mr. Terry. The Secretary furth...
