HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 19 January 1894
HERE IITII RERE1 j Br era ar Asort Towr . - d Tam rather more than puzzled abou.t these calculations of the " Speight and Syme jury "-I said t& Dot ie 'other evening : "I can't make head or tail of them. There are ninety to thirty votes about libel and want of truthbfulness. and sir to six about fair comment. What's it all mean? W,Yao's righlt and who's wrong, and'is anyone ever going to het at the truth? There are a lot of men ready to subscribe to help the plaintiff, end a lot doing the same for the de fendant.. And no one will get anything out of it except the lawyers." And then Dot took upl her own parable. She's a clever, clear-headed woman. Dot and the dog under the waggon together often make out. things that bewilder mne.

JUURNALISM IN MEXICO. "Haven't you worked on a Mexican news. paper " I asked of Dave Ward, the old tramp reporter, as we fished for black bass from the same skiff the other day. " Haw ! haw ! haw !" laughed Dave, as his wrinkled old face lighted up like a biglantern. "Yes, I had a 'sit' on a daily paper in the City of Mexico about ten years ago, and it was a rare experience." "Any objections to stating partiuonlars ?" "Noneat all. Haw! haw! Butitwas funny. I was on one of my trips around thb globe and got financially basted in the City of Mexico. I can speak and write Spanish, and it occurred to me that I might get a 'sit' on one of the dalies.

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 26 January 1894
Spring Valley. :o- [FROMt OUR OWN CORREnF.N?DSNT]. MR. Joseph Evans opened his ensilage pit one day last week. The ensilage has turned out splendidly and the mnilch cows are now being fed on it with success. The fodder is of a light green in the centre of the pit whilst at the sides it is of a dark brown color. M?ost of the horses that I have noticed in this district during the last day or so, have had clusters of nits under their jaws. I am told that this is caused by the " hot "fly, and that when the clusters of eggs hatch, the insects will enter the flesh, and so I have singed the hair from under my horse's jaws. Whooping cough and blight are prevalent in this district, but the latter is nut nearly so severe as in former seasons. Grasshoppers are playing tearful havoc in the gardens and crchards, having stripped the trees of the foliage. The daily supply of milk to the Flower dale creamery, is 460 gallons and I under stand this is the largest supply at any of the Yea Dairy Compan...
My Dead. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 26 January 1894
My Dead. I climbed tme mountain where the crested pines Shook down their needles to the darkling dews; The sunset's gold in faint perspeOtivelsnes Seemed melted with the blues in changeful hues. The arly scenes, familiar yet, and still How changed! No breath floats back from rock or tree; Each childish haunt is silent, and each cill Sings only mournful songs of memory. My gaze swept over every well-known scene, And then it rested on a grassy slpe, Where reddened leaves lay soft and light be. tween Each mound distinct within its narrow scope. There years ago, ah, yes, near two decades Ere youth with sweet attendant joys had Where birch sways low, and graceful maple shades, Each low, green couch, I laid my cherished dead. Secure from earth and all its changing hours, They rest, As beauteous seasons come and go, They heed not sun nor transient breath of Nor hurrying footsteps passing to and fro. One lies not with the rest, but far away, Where precious lives of men, like grains, were so...

Ladies' Gossip. Two young gentlersn, meml'er of the chemistry class at the Melbourne Uoi. verstay, lectured on the Chemistry of Cookery in the lecture-room of the Gas Company on Saturday.

Many experiments were rendered possible by the complete apparatus kindly placed at the dispoeal of the lecturersby Messrs Rocke, Tompeitt and Co. All these experiments were followed with breathless atttention by those present. Mrs Davis. in the course of her admirablc lecture, has told her pupils what they must and must not do; this morning they were told and shown the reason of the previous advice, all being explained so lucidly and interestingly that the scholars had no difi culty in following intellilently.

- :O: [FROP OCR owN CORRESPONDENT.. FRUIT-GROWItNG must be regarded as one of the principal industries of this locality, which seems well adapted for such a pur pose, the soil being of a dark loamy nature. Mr. J. E. Draper is bestowing a good deal of attention on his orchard, which is situated on a nice slope on the Rocky creek. T'he orchard is eight acres in extent, and the greater part of this area is occupied by young trees of Mr. Draper's own raising, and which are of a healthy and good fruit. bearing nature. The yield this season has not been so good as in former years, but the crop was of fine quality. The orchard is well cultivated and cared for, and, together with dairying, it keeps Mr. Draper fully engaged attending to it. Mr. Draper's dairy herd is of the shorthorn breed, and the owner says they are good producers. The milk is separated on tie farm and the butter sent direct to market, and in my opinion Mr. Draper is the right man in the right place. Mr. Kummer, like \Mr. ...
