It was not saittliness exactly though Farmer Waghorn said she wasan angel in woman'agear-forit was something ner vioe lin and her rending had given her as much as hergooddoing. She was in that state when -love and reneiation, workiog together, force - tthe soul into sight of higher issues, towards which it grovs because it must, or faint. I didn't think it then...

Once or twice I had noticed the lindoo in the smoking saloon of the ship, where frequently he sat, watching the various games of chanceor skill i...

Over and Over. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

Over and Over. A kindly word costs little When a downcast face is near, And many hearts will lighter beat For words of friendly cheer. Less thought for selfish planning, And more for others' needs, And many a heart would grow sweet flowers Instead of worthless weeds. If all our hearts, from day to day, Could be as blithe as birds in May If we could carry, as we go, Some words of cheer to all we know How glad a place this world would grow ! We hurry, hurry onward WVith thoughts on self intent, And never heed our neighbor, So old and lone and bent. One little act of kindnees, One gilt from out our store, Would wake his heart to singing That would reach the father shore. Then let us write and let us say The same old words from day to day; If old and young and high and low Would scatter sunshine as they go, How bright a place this world would grow

Lord Jersey on New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

Lord Jersey on New South Wales. -o In the course of his paper on New South Wales, recently read before the Imperial In. stitute, Lord Jersey said that many persons had but the vagnest ideas with regard to Australia. Some did not know where Sydney was, and he had been asked by otherswhether they had any railways in Australia, and if he stayed with '' our Ambassador there." The principal thing that impressed him during the stay was the enormous acreage and the disproportionate supply of population. The lack of people was the greatest hindrance of pregoete. New Sonth W.ales was well provided with minerals. Coal was plentiful. The strike of 1888 had cauredvery serious results to trade, and nowhere was that more apparent than in the Broken Hill district, the history of which was a modern romance. The development of pastoral pursuits had been remarkable. No one was allowed to purchase more than a certain amount of land, and residential occupation was insisted on. In one part of the colony...

THE FASTEST WARSHIP IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

THE FASTEST WARSHIP IN THE WORLD. Mlr Max Pemberton has been " realied.? It is something to possess the f's:est war ship in the world, and theo Americans are not the people to hide their light under a bushel. A correspondent of the "Daily Graphic" thinks they have certainly aohieved a striking sunoess with their new erumber, Columbia, more widely known, perhaps, as the * Pirate" Comme?re-destroyer. On her preliminary trial trip between Cape Ann and Cape Porpoioe,onthe coast of Maine, the Columbia began by making a record breaking performance of 22.S7 knots an hour, but this exploit, satisfactory as it was in the highest degree, comes short of what the Colombia aeoomplished onher official trial trip 'a few days later. On that occasion, for 72 nautical miles in the whole test run of 44 nautical miles continuous steaming, she raced from mark-buoy to mark-buoy, according to the official log, at the hitherto unheard.of pace of 25.3l'nots an hour. For the whole course her general rate of ...

Sec. of the Children's Special Service Mission, hay. ing written to all the religious periodicals, that a delegate was prepared to be sent anywhere, it was decided to hold sorae services in the local Anglican Church. A Mr. Macdonald, of East Kew, duly arrived, and, at once, made himself at home with our young people. Heseemed instinctively to realize their youthful difficulties, and aided by the happiest illustrations, gave them the most whole some advice as to h,,w to carry out their New Year good resolutions. In spite of the very sultry weather, many gathered to the afternoon Bible readings; and about 50 to 6n young folk at each week evening service. The attention never flagged; the special hymn-sheet was sung with great zest, and the pretty picture leaflets were eagerly taken. There were no collections made.

Kangaroo Hunting in the Tallarook Ranges. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

Kangaroo Ilunting in the Tallarook Ranges. (Br CARALULUV). I nlsT describe to you our delightful day in the mountains; having been invited to join a party to go in search of kangaroos, Lieutenant Cecil, Miss Killiney, Dr. Bentley and myself, " we four, no nmore," got up at four o'clock donned our riding habits, and after partaking of a cup of tea, started off. all excitement. for the ranges, and for about two hours we had some good canters through fairly level country, until we reached tile foot of the mountain, and then commenced the climbing; it was very steep and decidedly an odd sensation to sit on an almost perpendicular horse. I think we must have looked very much like flies on a wall. Oh the glorious freshness of that ride in the early morning, with the sweet scent of the flowery gum; I shall never forget it. We then continued to pene trate the recesses of thle mountains, sucih beautiful vieas al the way along. mighty masses of rock overgrown switi moss, huge gum trees, old a...

Waudong. [FROM OCR OWNs CORREBFONtDENT.] A FAR?n house, occupied by MIr. Gilbert, and the property of Mr. Purcell, Yea, was completely destroyed by fire at I a.m. on Wednesday, the 24th ult. It is only quite recently that this house was thoroughly renovated, MIr Purcell having effected some extensive repairs regardless of cost. Deep regret is shown on all hands for the owner, and practical sympathy is being ex pressed for MIr. Gilbert and family, who, having lost the whole of their furniture and household effects, are lett in rather uncom fortable circumstances. A subscription list is being taken round by some of our ir.de. fatiguable and philanthropical residents, and, I hear, meeting with liberal response. One of our most favorite evening walks, known as the " Lover's Walk," has been entirely deserted during the past fortnight, owing to the fact that the carcase of a dead horse has been allowed to remain there, almost in the heart of the township; need. less to describe the offens...

ral'tll Creek. .:o:. [FROM OUR OWN CORROESPONDENT.] AFTER a week's very hot weather there has been a nice change, and rain is fall. ing steadily as I write. Up to the pre. sent time the district has been free from fire. During the last few weeks there has been a plague of grasshoppers. They have eaten all before them-cabbages, onions, grapes, and in some instances they have eaten the apples off the trees; and also stripped the trees of their leaves. I hear all the farmers complaining about the "bot" fly. All the horses about here seem to be affected ; the remedy generally used is kerosene, which seems to be very effective. Some very gooal hauls of fish have been made during the past week. I must congratulate the local cricketers on putting down Tallarook last Saturday. Howe won the toss from the local skipper, and Hilliear and his crew were compelled to bat just as a terrible dust-storm was blowing up. Rain was also hanging about, which made the light very bad indeed. However, after...

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

Melbourne Letter. -:o: [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J IILKt only excepted, every product of the soil is bought and sold according to quality. Be it any kind of grain, hay or chaff, beef or mutton, wool, wine, or fruit, butter or cheese, eggs or poultry, the quality, consistent of course with the supply, always fixes the value. The producer of these articles quite recognises this, and to secure top prices aims at supplying as far as possible primo quality. It is the only legitimate method of trading, and works out satisfactorily to both buyer and seller. If the system then, having stood the test of time be sound in principle, why should it not long ago have been applied to the milk trade ? Does it not seem strange that in trad ing with milk, quantity and not quality has always been the first consideration with the producer? The system no doubt has obtained through custom. and so long as the custom was made to arply to direct consumers of milk such as in I rge cities and towns, the unsou...
