HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
MJERE AND THERE1 Br T ?I . MAJ AnocT Tow'N, Even the warmest admirer of Eve's des. eendents will admit that there was munch force in the advice of ,Mr Weller, senior, to his simple-minded son to beware of " id. .ders." True also was his statement that a stage coachman of the old school was a privileged person among women. All could confide in him, and he had about as free a hand in thoe wayof road.ide flirtation ea a man onad desire. There might or might not be "everycare,"butthere certainly was"nores- I ponsibility.' It is much the same with a sea o captain and his female passengers. The place of honor is next to him. He can make 1 one envied and hated of the others. lie can check a flirtation or wink at it, as it may plesno him. IHecan confer all sorts of privi. leges, and according as he keeps his head ( or loses it so are his paths pleasant. I But off duty ho is but as others. Worse off sometimes. Your elderly mariner, when not t in command, is something like the man from t Croa...

TOLD BY A THERMOMETER. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
TOLD BY A THERMOMETEIR. o-0 I am a plain ordinary thermometer, and I I hang out in front of Pillson's apothecary shop. I have been hanging in the same place for ton years, through good weather and bad, and the ridiculous things done and said within my notice in that time by people living in the neighborhood would stock a writer of farce-comedies with material for his prize production. See this sour-visaged follow staring at mo now lie is a miserly skinflint of a landlord who hasn't enough blood in his veins to furnish the color for an honest blush. He would swallow an insult without a tremor if it meant an extra dollar in his pocket, and he would turn a help less tenant, roolless and hungry, into the street for non-payment of rent and never feel the warmth of a genuine regret for the misfortunes of his victim. Yet on hot days he stops and gazes at me-for the reason, I suppose, that it costs him nothing and if my mercurial spine happens to have humped itself up into the eighties ho g...

THE PASSING OF HOGAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
THE PASSING OF HOGAN. ---I --- I regret to say that Michael Hogan is dead. As Mr Hogan's wake has been &nbsp; celebrated with a proper number of candles &nbsp; and bottles and his funeral expenses &nbsp; paid by the High Order of the Green Fir, he is quite done for. As Hugh Hilarity says: &nbsp; "Hogan was a good mahn-a mighty good mahn. But he's dead." Mr Hogan was a brick mason by trade, having acquired his knowledge in New &nbsp; York city from observing others while he &nbsp; continually passed up and down a ladder, &nbsp; carrying mortar. By occupation Mr Hogan &nbsp; was boss of a sewer gang, and used before his death to spend his time in standing at the &nbsp; mouths of sewer traps and shouting direc- tions to the men working below. &nbsp; GURRLISH GLEE." &nbsp; &nbsp; The manner of Mike Hogan's death was &nbsp; this :-On the 4th of July he attended the annual picnic of the...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
IHEIi AD THEIEM, o- ,B BY rTie MaeN ACor ToWt, e_ It's a terrible thing sometimes to be a re 1e presentative of royalty. The Viceroy of er Ireland has many consolations. He can re kiss the youthful debutantes at his court, and r. if some be a trifle off color in the way of s. youth, they are proportionately grateful. A Even the Viceroy of India can get away to the Hills, and the diversions it of Simla are of an exciting, not to say spicy, order. But out in Australia a Governor has sometimes a sultry time of it. SHe hss generally a large stock of orders on hand for openingbuildings, bazaars, etc. He is is expected to say something new about it anything at the shortest notice, and to ,f be widely interested in everything from ;o ensilage to calisthenics or esoteric Baddhism. d noe has frequently to travel long distances d with members of Parliament ! He has a e larger visiting book than any other citizen, 'r sand, consequently, is more frequently bored. s yet the unkindest cut of all ...

A party of surveyors arrived to-day to survey the " Empress of India " lease. A very successful meeting was held at lMcjlanus's Hotel on the 19th inst. for the purpose of forming a local cricket club.

Shearing in Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
Shearing in Scotland. Here is a paragraph from a London paper which should be enjoyed by Aus traian shearers :--"A sheep is shorn in Scotland in three minutes. On the Dunbartonshiro hills sheep farmers are busy gathering the ?rol crop just now. Five expert shearers can clip a thousand sheen in a day the record time to strip a fleece being 2nmin 30 sec. A machine for the purpose was lately inlented, but shep herds prefer to work with the old-time shears-as speedy and as trustworthy a process. The sheen are silent during the operation, but set up a lamentable bleat lug when released." It will be observed that there is no reference to tar in this somewhat entertaining paragraph. Owing to the number of fatal duels durng the past three years, the .Minister of Justice in St. Petersaburg has found it necessary to legislate against the prac tice. A new law has therefore been promulgated, according to which any person killing another in a duel renders himself liable to imprisonment foraperio...
The Age of Parrots. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
The Age of Parrots. Referring to a paragraph which was pub. lished concerning the age which parrots have been known to reach, Mlr James Clarke writes from Taroom :-" I have now in my possession a red-shouldered parrot that was taken out of its nest in the year 1SG7 at Rochedale by my mother, and has been in our family ever since. It is now apparently in good health. We also had a rosella parrot for about eighteen years. Both parrots eat i what we use ourselves; nothing seems to disagree with them." The " red-shoulder" is thus twenty-six years old. In the same connection information has reached us that a king parrot now in the possession of Mrs Charles Mullins, of Hamilton road, Brisbane. has lived for at least twenty-nine years, having been ob tained by the late Mr M3ullins from Mr Moody, a farmer at Cooper ' Plains, in 1SG7, when it was three years old. 'Ve shall he glad to bear of other instances of longevity. -" The Queenelander."

I notice a few re nl:us refer, ion to the above which I c tn hard:y al ow to pass with1'tt commtent. It is difficult to comprchend why a clergyman should characterize any effort, which questions the justice of depriving 30 or 40 P otestants of their !dace of worship, as " from a frivolous source." Your correspondent also remarks that "if any person entertains any honrlt scruple or sintere objection to the probable removal," &c. Is it posqiole that he thinks any Christian man or woman who honestly follaned the dictates of tonscsence, when the spiritual welfare of their fellow creatures was involved, would not I.pld any siocere and hounst objections to such a proceeding, or would sit quietly by without protesting against it ?

The Touchstone. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893
The Touchstone. o I. I told mine enemy the truth-his brow At first grew stern, and, from his angry eye The lightnings tlash'd. But soon hespake: "'Tis now I see I judged you falsely. Wrong was I, Forgive me for the past, and let us forth, To roam thro' peaceful meads, all strife at end!" So. arm and arm we went-no longer wroth The truth had made mile enemy a friend ! II. I told my friend the truth. He bravely smiled, And with a gracious courtesy averred : " Your candor pleases me !" yet 'neath his mild And glad exterior a something stirred. Which plainer caid than words : "We are estranged For evermore. Your lance hath wounded me Past all redress!" Love had to hatred changed: The truth had made my friend an enemy! -ELEANOR C.
