Reliable English Information. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892
Reliable Euglish lnformation. Australia, it would seem, is still a terra incognita to some of our English contem poraries, and although their ignorance of our country is not, perhaps, more pro nounced than our's is of their's, they fall into blunders that read peculiarly like burlesques. An English paper informs its readers that Windsor, the scene of Deeming's second cement exploit, is a fashionable place close to St. Kilda, the nearest seaside suburb to Melbourne, but standing on a little island. It numbers about 2500 inhabitants. The district is frequently floo ed, but, the town, fortu. nately for its existence, is built on a hill. Windsor is one of the oldest settled places in the colony. It has several good business houses, many schools, and two fine bridges over the Ifawkesbury River and the South Creek. The Windsor here described is a picturesque town about 25 miles from Sydney.
Correspondence. We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. The Editor of the Broadford Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892
Corresponldence. --------- We. do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. Six,-I was pleased to see the support given to our member's suggestion by the local committee with regard to assisting the unemployed, and I trust the appeal in Friday's Courier will not be in rain. May I offer a suggestion which will in no way retard monetary contributors in "lending to the Lord," but will, on the other hand, allow a larger number to participate in the cause, and greatly en. hance the efforts. of Broadford philan thropists. We have a Wednesday half.holiday in the town, and rabbits galore all round, and I have no doubt f an afternoon were set apart for rabbit shooting a large number of hunnies would be "bagged," which could be forwarded to Melbourne. Rabbits should keep tolerably well this weather, and I believe if the commhittee feel disposed to give it consideration our friends in the outlying districts would help to make a success of the venture.-[ am, yours...
CUPID FOUND A WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892
OUPID FOUND A WAY. lB MAter KYLE DALL.tLS. ----..-. The Van Tweedles were an "old family." .laet families are old, since everybody's grandfathers and grandmothers may be counted rip in the most wonderful compoind ,sort of manner, if one chooses to take the the trouble ; but the Van Tweedles somehow felt thembelves older than other folks ; and as tihere were only two of that particular branch alive, it seemed likely that they .oauld soon also have that other much admired quality of being very rare. The Van .Tweedles, in fact, thought so Shighly of their family that they could think of on other fit to mix with it, and remlined aingle at an ago when most people find themselves married. They were very like each other--high nosed, thin, with prominent white teeth, and ,canty reddish hair. They appeared to remain thin because they thou'ght it far mAre genteel to 'do so than to become fat, and 'while Mr. Van Tweedle thought it proper to have constant interviews with his lawyer, Miss Van Tw...

Sensational Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892
Sensational Robbery. Mr. R. Barrows, of the Sha arock hotel, Lancefield, informs us, sa ; the " Lancefield Mercury," that a :en a tional robbery was committed at the office of his brother, Mr. Barrow'. Touri Agent, Sydney, about a fortnight ago. It appears that the manager carefully secured the premises as usual before pr. cr eding to tea. On his return, about n oclock, he found the front door open, and on inspecting the chop discoverrd t, his dismay that the premises had bec,, literally looted, and upwards of £0oo it, nr.tes, gold, and small silver had beett carried off. Every drawer and cupboard had been forced and broken open, and nothing in the way of cash had been lef,.. except a small bag of coppers, which 1th, buiglars had either missed or hat n..t time to carry' away.

clience Gossip. AN ODDITY. A white tiger is indeed a great rarity. Nevertheless at the_ l lto*f,?-y este iltedtne slim of an adult mall , animal which had been shot by Major D. Robinson, of the Lancashire Fusiliers. . at Poona. Major Goodwin Austin, who spoke on the subject, mentioned his hav ing killed one on the Khasia Hills, and alluded to another as having been shown at the society's meetings many years ago. It is not said whether these were Albinos, like our pure white cat-a good example of the carnivorous type,. In the ordinary tiger the ground tint isof a rich brown or tawny hue, with deep black cross stripes. Major Robinson's tiger's skin was re markable in that the ground tint was whitish grey (in this resembling the snow leopard), with very faint brownisih cross stripes, not solid as in the ordinary tiger, but each split in the back. joining towards the belly. No case of a black tiger is recorded, though black leopards are not uncommon. MUSICAL K.IT-S. In Central Asia they...

The Girls of Ninety-One. (A TALE OF LAST YEAR) [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892
The Girls of Niu ety=Ono. (A TALK OF LAST VEAS n ? They tell me 'twas the fashion, 0, long and long ago, For girls to look like lilies white., And sit at home and sew. Forth strode their sturdy brothers On many a gallant quest : But the maids behind the lattice Their weary souls possessed. To-day the times have altered. And pretty Kate and Nell Are playing merry tennis In sooth they do it well. They ride across the country, They climb the mountain side, And with oars that feather lightly Along the rivers glide. it they've not been to college, They are going by and bye, To shake the tree of knowledge, Though its branches touch the sky, For all their Greek and Latin, And poring over books, With faces smooth as satin, They'll keep their dainty looks. Do you want a happy comrade, In study or in fun P Be sure you'll find her quickly 'Mid the girls of Ninety-one. She'll keep that bright head steady, Unharmed in any whirl, And not a lad will love her less Because she is a girl. Margaret E....
