The Dairying Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

The Dairying Indlustry. The dairying indust-y having been established on a sound footing in this district, farmers would do well to peruse the following remarks, which are taken from Bulletin No. 14 of the Agriculural Department of Victoria. In an address by Mr. David Wilson, the Government dairy expert, at a meeting of the Dairymen's Association, that gentleman delivered himself as follows : GROWING GPEEN FOLRAGE. "In my oflicial travels through the colony during the parched-up season of the year I see almost everywhore good milch cattle failing to supply a remunerative quantity and quality of milk for our creameries, while at a trifling cost of money and lab ,or abl,n dance of. wholesome green ensilage or forage could be provided to overcome this difficulty and keep those creameries running profitably all tile year round, and provide our cities with a supply of superior butter, which is always in demand, at remunerative rates. I therefore hope that the directors of factories and a...

A Mean Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

A Mean Man. His wife had just made a remark, in the wit of whicah she experienced a feelTg c. pride. The husband was the butt of the wit, and he became angry. I mention this, becaese eases of a hoe. band becoming grey are extremely rare, and new instances should always be recorded with scrupuloous care. The husband smiled-with pain. The wife saw the pain in the smile, and hailed a writhing victim. She therefore turned to Mr. B. W. Smith, who was a guest at the time, and made another reflection on her husband. She believed that hbaing made two of these remarks, it was a close call it she was not gifted in epigram. "You are very funny," said the writhing husband. The wife tossed her head, and pleaded guilty, with a pleased look at the uneom. fortable guest who was hugely enjoying the whole affair, but who, in afterward telling of the scene, said that such things make a I person feel very ill at ease. "Yes, you are very w.4ty," said the I husband; "it I could write down all you say it ...

The Lunatic's Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

TIhe Lunattlc's Story. As he was picked up on the streets, crazy, and sent to the asylum. It was impossible to tell who or what he was. Indeed, he had forgotten his own identity and believed himself to be Grand Powwow Powderly. The insanity expert who had charge of his sese assumed that he was a poor workingman, crazed by misfortuone. "Mr. Powderly " was a myrtery for several months, but the careful attention of the doctor was rewarded, and as length reason was restored. Shortly after the doctor said to him : "I should like to hear your story,tor I have always had the profoundest sympathy for the downtrodden son of toil." A grin wrinkled " Mr Powderly's " face as he said: "All right. I'll tell you a story of the poor, oppressed workingman that will make your hair curl. I was a clerk in a shoe. store, and had a £1000 in cash, when an idea occurred to me. It was an improve. ment in the making of shoes which added immensely to the comfortableness of the shoe. Well, I started a shop to ...

A Wonderful Escape. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

A Wonderful Escape. By Lieutenant Murray. ----+e+ Not long since the German steamship Pomerania, from Hamburg, after touching at Havre. where she took in coal and freight. doubled Cape de la Hague, and skirting the Channel Islands, lay her course to the southward and westward for the United States. The good ship glided on her way, i making her usual speed of thirteen knots per hour, until the morning of the second day from lavre. Suddenly the engineer's bell was sounded by the officer on the bridge to "slow the ship," and a monient afterwards the signal bell sounded " eop her." The Pomerania was now fairly in the broad Atlantic, and such a signal to the en gineer signified some uncommon occurrence or exigency. Ol course, all were on the alert instantly. The captain, who had just sat down to take his morning cop of coffee in the cabin, put down the untaeted beverage and hastened upon deck, when the officer of the watch was soon observed pointing to a small object far to leeward on th...

My misery is complete. A cruel and unexpected blow has fallen on me. Listen : You know that I have been staying here for the past week with mother, the doctors having ordered her ( South at a day's notice. I could not find it n my heart to ask my husband to accom pany us, just as the London .Season hadi commenced, and it is impossible to rejoin him before the end of the month. Yesterday the English post brought me guess what! An anonymous letter, written in an unknown, and manifestly disguised hand, informing me that my husband is carring on an intrigue with Mrs. St. George -that tall, stout woman with reddish hair, and a deservedly bad reputation. You must know her: one meets her everywhere. I am jealous, you well know, but I believe this person to be dangerous. Somehow, all the men admire her...

JAUX AND FI,??S3. I F ever there s a a true man and a fine J fellow it as .Jack Ilarvey. Who wasJack Harvey? If you had asked that question of a New York newspaper man lie would have laughed atyou. And it was not alone in New York that Jack was well known, but throughout the Eastern States, for Jack was a writer of unusual ability. Like all writers ofstanding he mbnade his way fromn the bottom. I tist met him ten years ago. when I struck New York. looking for a position as a reporter. I was a green country lad then, and the fact that I came from within a dozen miles of his birthplace was sufficient reason with Jack why he should take me tinder his wing and steer me clear cf the pitfalls awaiting green reporters. At that time he was thirty-three years of age. Apparently he was a hard mall to approach, and as a matter of fact his upper crust was pretty thick. While frigid in the extreme he was always courteous. It did not take me long after first tmecting hint to make up my mind that ...

AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1Sg2. Revising the Tariff. Tulesi is a committee, composed of members of Parliament and se:f-ap pointed, now sitirng daily in Melbourne engaged upon work which properly belongs to the Treasurer, and for the performance of which he is paid by the country. The committee referred to is engaged upon the laborious duty of "revising the tariff." Not that any one of the members really knows any thing about fiscal affairs-if they did, some of them having been members of the House during some years, the country would not now be in the de plorable condition in which it is placed. But experience has shown that a know ledge ."f business is not necessary to place any man ill the proud position which those gentlemen now occupy. Self-assertiveness, a good pair of lungs, and an easy flow of speech, are all the requisites which are needed in these days to bring an energetic man to the front. Some weeks ago a number of these gentlemen wai...

A DEAD LETTER. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

A DEAD LETTER. ----C*- CHAPTEI I. Uncle Andrew Alison was not an easy Sr a pleasant person to live with. Audrey and I, his two nieces, both feared and detested him; and I cannot say how truly thankful I was when Duncan Ferrear asked me to be his wife. Audrey dund I had lived with uncle ever since when, in my seventh year and Audrey's ninth, our father had dite in Canada - first in a small house in hullo. way, then, after our uncle grew rich and was knighted, in a large house in lBedford aquare, which was, I believe the dullest abode in the city of London. Mother had died soon after father, and, as Audrey and I did not get on well to. getber, it may be easily imagined that a good man's love-though that men was only a struggling young doolor- was a real blessing to me. My uncle was one of the cleverest railway contractorsof the day. He and my lather had started in business when they were young, with a joint capital which had gradually grown into a colossal fortune.

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 July 1892

CHAPTER II. When Duncan and I first settled in our new home, in a remote Staffordshire village, we found ourselves of considerable importance. It was noised abroad that Dactor Ferrara had married the niece of Sir Andrew Alison, the great railway contractor, and this fact cast around es a halo reflected from my uncle's name and wealth. The country dignitaries called on us, and 1 found myself treated with deference by my neighbours in the village. Our new circle, however, was not long in discovering that between the man of millions and his niece yawned a gulf which neither had any intention of bridging over, and the great expectations which attended ouar installation shrank disgusted away before our diminutive and un pretentious establishment. These eocial questions did not trouble us. Duncan was glad to be able to devote all his spare time to scientifio reading and experi. ments, and he did not want to get into the swim of local gayities. Unfortunately he found more time for reading ...
