Seymour as a Site for Freezing Works. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 26 January 1894
Seynlour as a Site for Freezing Works. MR. McKenzie, M.P., had an interview with the Premier on Wednesday in re ference to the proposal of the Govern ment to erect meat freezing works at Port helbourne. He represented to Mr. Patterson the great advantage of having such works established at some inland centre, citing the method adopted in New Zealand, and at Aberdeen in New South Wales, and he at the same time pointed out the unrivalled position that tile town occupies as a railway and stock centre. The Premier stated in reply that the Government had not definitely com mitted itself to any particular scheme, and he promised to give full considera tion to the views of Mr. McKenzie, who is to have another interview with him early this week. It is Mr. McKenzie's intention to lay before the Cabinet the opinion of experts (such as Mr. John Cooke, of the Australian Mortgage Land and Finance Company, a pioneer in the New Zealand trade), which will very naturally support his advocacy of our ...

Mlelbourne Letter. OluY OR OWN CORReseONDseTr.] (Continued from last ,reel.) 1nu, I).tlVd Wilson, the Government c Dairy expert, in his annual report at the end of each butter shipping season, estimates, taking all the milk operated I upon by factories and creameries during the season, that on the average it takes two and a half gallons of milk to produce a pound of butter. Since the introduc. r tion of the Babcock milk tester and the s system of" Payment for milk by results" e p;erfected by iMr. C. G. Lance, Secretary I of the Euroa butter factory, the butter yielding properties of many dairy herds 1 have steadily improved, and, at several of i the more progressivefactories, theaverage s quantity of milk during this season re .quired to produce a pound of butter, does not exceed two and a quarter gallons. t For present purposes however we will c .accept Mr. Wilson's estimate, two and a half gallons. If converted into butter, c ,two and a half gallons of milk, it has v .already been...

A New Butter Mould. We givoeherewith an illustration of a butter mould. recentlybroughtout by Mr ThomaaLoyd, of Taranaki, New Zealand.

It claimed that 150 11b. pate of batter can be turned out per hour with one of these moulds constructed to mould four or more pats at once. The weight of each pat will, we are told, be accurate, and the work can be done rapidly and neatly.

,A Military Execution. A correspondent who is at present with the Spaniards at Melilla sends the following graphic account of the execution of a convict named Farrer: He had walked part of the way from town, the priests on either eide leaning on him. • In front went five convicts, bearing an ordinary etretcher, on which were two coarse army blankets, at once his pall and uoffln. One of the priests embraced him and took leave, and the other led him to the spo asseigned him to kneel with his back to the firingparty, a squad of four soldiers armed with the repeating Maneers. From the plateans and hills about the Moors could not fail to have witnessed all these proceedings, for Camellos is on an elevation of but 250 feet. The spot was ill. chosen, as the bullets might have been carried too near the fort, so Farrer was directed to rise and walk forward twenty paces. This he did quietly, and again resumed his former attitude,deolining to have his eyes bandaged. Once more the good clergyma...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 26 January 1894
A characteristic symptom of the times is the following cowardly piece of mis chief (reported by a Berlin correspon dent):-A merchant here named Fried lander received, through the lest, a small parcel, the sender signing himself " Dr. Cohn." Herr Friedlander, who was dining, requested his children's governess to open it. The young lady removed thle paper in which the parcel was done up, and at the same moment an explosion occurred. This was followed by a regular shower of small pieces of metal. The go,erness had her eyebrows singed, and for the tirt few momenh she could see nothing, so thIt one feared for her eyesight. Her face vas per fectly black from the smoke of tIn pow der. Herr Friedlander's little son cf three years, who was sitting next to ler, re ceived slight contusions on the htad, and his hair was burnt. As there wsapolice station in the same biaiding tL? police promptly appeared and took po sion of the apparatus. The act seems J be one of revenge.
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 26 January 1894
'HEEI DS11 THEI'E . BY Joes PEEM,?r-.oL. S"Some. short time ago a tiger nakeo, almost 5ft. long, was lulled in a poultry yard at Warragul. In the mere fact of the death of a tiger snake there is not much.. Any right-minded snake knows I that to be killed is his mission and dies 1 willingly. 1lut this particular ophidian combined apparently.. the appetite ot a python, with the venom of a tiger snake, and on being opened was found to con . tain two small chickens - and a young 7 ' duck, another, and a larger, chicken beintg stuck in its throat. The story does not stick in my throat by any means. I Familiar to my memory are snake stories of a much more variegated character than this. A ten-woof Brussels carpet would 1 be as nothing compared to them. Far away in a jungle clearing in North- r western India I have seen a b's of some twenty feet lone with his tail in his i mouth bowled along, hoop fashion, by an h excited "guree," with an equally excited g of mine, a ma of the srictest vor...
