Incidents in Pioneer Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892

Incidents in Pioneer Life. In 1815. my parents came to the then small town of Portland, Oregon, crossing the plains in ox-waggons, the journey lasting nine nsonths, and filled with hard ships and peril. Our farm was situated in Yamhill. near Dayton. The farmers all about raised wheat and fruit, and many lived on credit year after year, pledging their crops in advanco. The couentry was wild, and, abounded in deer, bears, wolves, i,.u?thers, and wild hog. Indians, too, were frequent visitors, and all were obliged to treat them well, for they perpetualiy feared all outbreak. My sisters and myself were entirely democraitic in our principles, so we played soberly with the little redskins, on terms of equality. We soon learned to " jabber jargon " nith them, and they delighted to deck our hair with the gay est feathers of the grouse and pheasant. These head feathers formed the greater part of tile clothing worn in summer by the boys. I shall never forget the first barbecue I ever witnesse...

PANSIES. "?Gooc-bye!" It was a madness of fare. wells. TIPey stood looking into one another's eyes cith blanched faces. Would he ever come back ? ecr wide eves grew desolate es she looked at bhil. Then the lashes drooped sv"r them, and she lay motionless against his breast for a second, as though the spirit had died within her. "Jeannette--is this the girl fitted to be a soldier's wife Have you no regard for my honor" His voice quirered, but his eyes looked down upon her proudly. "Yes." She roused herself bravely. "Your duty is at toe front. I would not hold you back." She placed her hand on the bunch of pansies at her throat; royal beauties they were, with great velvety hearts of purple andl cold. "They are my colors," she whispered. "Wear them, my knight, and be true to your llady always." 1Her trembling fingers pinned them inside his coat. "Goel he with you." She kept the tears back, smiling into his face, though the drum beat sounding in the street below seemed like a death knel...

Trawool Granite Quarry. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892

Trawool Granite Quarry. This quarry, which has only recently been opened, is situated on the Trawool Creek, in close proximity to the railway line from Tallarook to Yea, and about seven or eight miles distant from the former place. A lease, which conferred the right to quarry on this land, was formerly held by Mlr. Spargo, but this lease has now been transferred to Messrs. Wright Bros., late of Aberdeen. These gentlemen have already commenced operations, and so far with the gratifying result that they have proved the stone to be of the highest quality; in fact the senior member of the firm, who has had long experience in connection with this industry, states that the Trawool granite is superior for all purposes to any that he has ever seen, not excepting the far famed granite of Aberdeen. The work at present being done is only of a preliminary character, as it is necessary that   a branch line shall be constructed into the quarry before operations on an extnesive scale ...

DEATH OF MR. S. R. BENNETT. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892

DEATH OF MR. S. R. BENNETT. In addition to the recent very sad demise of Mrs. John Ferguson, we have this week to record, with most unaffected regret, the death of Mr. Bennett, of the sawmill. He was in his usual health up to Wednesday, the 8th inst., and was not seriously indisposed till Saturday, the 11th. Dr. Skinner was called in, and, recognising the gravity of the symptoms, associated Dr.Brock, of Kilmore, in consultation. Acute pneumonia super. vened, and in spite of all that science and the most ceaseless care could do, he passed peacefully away last Saturday afternoon, in the 48th year of his age. He was also at tended by the incumbent of St. Matthew's in the choir of which he, at one time, was a member--and by others, and frequently ex pressed his entire resignation to the will of Almighty God. He retained consciousness to the last, and appeared to derive the most solid comfort from a strong sense of simple faith in the atonement made for him by the divine Son of God. Port...

FABLES. 1.—The Polite Goat. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892

FABLES,. 1.-The Polite Goat. A certain resident of this city once owned a most polite and fastidious goat whose pre ference was soft custard. One day the cook set a plateful of this popular dainty in the back yard, and the goat approached it with a smile that rose on its labials, moved in a northerly direction around its eyes, and emptied into the roots if its horns. " Soft custard is a rare delicacy; yet it is only proper that, so long as it is in good standing as a pudding, it should be the epilogue of a meal." After this declaration, the goat commenced eating the Haviland plate, and when the last bit of it had dissappeared, the poor refined quadruped found that all the soft custard had been absorbed by the earth. The moral of this truly beautiful fable teaches us that conventionality is often a farce; that etiquette is only beautiful when it enables us to come out on top, and that we should not denounce the small boy for wanting his pie before soup.

His etories were related with such a frankness of manner that he always captivated his hearers and begat a golden silence that a as indeed worthy of the most enviable admiration.

The writer of this once listened to one of his tales about a remarkable catfish. " Well, sir, you may rot believe it," sand the aged disciple of Izask Walton, " hobut a f...
