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

A Romantic; Pilferer. -0- Romantic sentiment is apt to wither in the unoongenialatmosphere of a polie court. Mr Thomna Broughton, a pawnbrokers porter, beingaskedby the Birmingham Stlpendiary Magistrate what he had to say to the proven charge of stealing a number of diamond rings and other valuable srticles, the propertyof bhi employer, stood up in the dock, and in a voice broken with emotion,. said, "I was madly in love with a woman. She jilted me,andltold her I should go to ruin." Here it is reoorded that the accused com pletely succumbed to has feelings, and burst into tears, but he sobbed on,." She used to work at a bedstead place. I told her it was too hard for her,.but she would not take any notice. I told her should goto ruin, and then took to stealing. God knows what she thinks now; I don't know." But the only result of this outburst of sensibility was the ominous comment .of the Magistrate, "I don't see the sense of this," followed by the Magistrate's Clerk's equally cruel ...

THE CRISIS IN ITALY. INTERESTING STATEMENT OF VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

IHE CRISIS IN ITALY. -a-- INT:ERESTING STATEMENT OF VIEWS. Some time ago, before his fall from the favor of his Imperial master, and the collapse of his term of power, Prince Biamarck said, in one of those vivid phrases in which great men of action are prone to express a volume in one flash, that the next European war would make the nations. "oleedhke a calf." It was a remarkable and a terrible phrase, "Bleed like a calf :" The butcher hangs the newly.-killed calf from a hook in the ebambles, and there it is pumped while the blood falls-drip ! drip ! drip ! from the carcase; leaving the flesh white in death. An one reads the startling eablegrams that come from Europe day after day one wonders whether the sanguinary simile of the Man of Blood and Iron needs to be statedin the future tense at all. With Italy on the verge of national bankruptcy, through her ruinousexpenditure oniarma ments; Germany pouring out her millions till her people groan In anguish, for the same reason ; Russia ...

THE PAPACY AND ITALY. VIEWS OF ARCHBISHOP CARR. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

THE PAPACY AND ITALY. VIEWS OF ARCHBISHOP` CARR. The Archbishop of Melbourne, Dr Carr, when spoken to upon the subject stated that he did not think it probable that His Holiness the Pope would have stated that a revolution was imminent in Italy. "No doubt," he said, " matters are exceedingly grave there, owing to the secret societies and the oppression of the people by taxa tion." " And do you not think that the Vatican is involved ?-" Oh, no; I think not. It is a matter outside the Vatican altogether. No one who has travelled in Italy can have failed to notice the oppressed condition of the people. Every. thing you see in the shops is dear, and the weight of taxation is terribly heavy. The trouble at bottom is a financial one, and then Italy is overrun with secretsocie'ies." " A wave of revolution seems to be sweeping over Europe."--"Yes; but Italy is particularly affected by secret societies. They were fostered, for politi cal ends, by Lord Palmerston when he was Minister for Fore...

ASSOCIATION MATCHES. BROADFORD V. SEYMOUR. THESE teams met on the Broadford ground on Saturday last, and the match was, in many respects, very like the one played at Sey. mour during the early pert of the season. Broadford lost the toss and were sent en to hat. Smith and Trezise opened, whilst Kelly and Porter had charge of the ball. When eight runs were scored, Smith made a desperate hit at a leg hall, which he failed to get on to. and the ewicket-keept'r catching the ball behind the wickets, and appealing..

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

THE LITTLE WRETCH. Seaing that little Johnny Tompkins war safelyout of the country, under injunctions to make a new man of himself, and to keep that new man, when made, at the Antipodes, I could not see anything indiscreet in touch ing on the matter in the course of conversa. tion withMis Hilary Musgrave. In point of fact, I was curious to find out what she knew, and, .spposing she knew, what she thought. So I mentioned little Johnny Tompkins. " Oh, the little wretch !" cried Mrs Hilary. "You know he came here two or three times ? Anybody can impose on Hilary." " Happy woman ! I-I mean unhappy man, Mrs Hilary." '" And how much was it hestole?" " Hard on a thousand," said I. " !For a time, you know, he was quite a man of' fashion." "Oh, I know. He came here in his own hansom, perfectly dressed, and- " "Behaved all right, didn't he ?" "Yes. Of course there was a something." "Or you wouldn't have been deseived I" said I, with a smile. "Iwasn'tdeceived," said Mrs Hilary, an admirable fl...

A Defence of Pugilism. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894

A Defence of Pugilism, Dr A. Conan Doyle, the well.knawn novelist, writes to the London "Daily Chronicle" a vigorous letter in defence of pugilism. The author of "Sherlock Holmes"says:- Might I be ' allowed to say a word in reference to your paragraph which re marks that the prize-ring never produced heroic qualities? The poor ring has so fallen from its former glory in theeedays of crossed fights and paper talk that we may at least allow it credit for what it has been. It bred a race of M.c1 OF INDOMITAELL COCIAGE AND EeT.GCT. I cannotunderstand how anyone acquainted with their record can doubt it. At Water. loo there was, as far as I know, only one professional pugilist on the field-Shaw the Lifecgardsman, who, had he lived, would probably have held the champion belt of England. The Homeric combat in which Shaw and Colonel Kelly fought back to back isnowa matterof history. It was said that ton lancers andonirasslers were cut down by him beforehe was shot.

One day they met on the street. "Look a heah, Drer Olmstead," said Lightfoot warningly, "you is got ter be mo' keerful how you fool 'round dem hen coops, yon is." Deacon.Olmstead was greatly shocked.

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

A Novel Contest. The latest addition to the attractions atthe Royal Aquarium is of a novel character, con aisting of a shaving contest, which (says the London "Iimes" of the 8th ult.) is tobe continued day by day until the 1Sth. The competitors are "Teddy" Wick, of Chelsea, and William Lloyd, who is tryiog to wrest the " championship" from Wick. The latter has never been defeated during the last 16 years in shaving contests, and performs many curious feats. The contest began on Monday in the Imperial Theatre, the annexe to the Aquarium, and was preceded by a display given by Wick's little danghter, a chil of tender years, who shaved five men in 6min. 42sec. The fourthman she shaved in exactly one minute, and the fifth man, with one hand behind her back, in a minute and a half. In the contest which followed the conditions imposed were silence, ex pedition, and cleanliness. A distino tion was laid down between the cutting of pimples and gashes. There were plenty of candidatcs for shav...

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

Packing Fruit. -0- For the information of fruit expcrklrs the AIaentGeneral has sent to the Minister oft Agri culture some bints gleaned from two of the leading green fruit brokers of London as to the manner in which produce of certain kinds ahould be sent to market. Apples should be forwarded after the system adopted in Tas. mania, which, it l sa id, cannot be improved upon. Oranges ought to be pocked in cases of 20, 410 and U060 rspectirely, and should be marked distinctly as to whether they are f'ritg, seconds or thirds. On no account should the oontentsof cases be mixed sizes. Orager and lemons should be carefully wrapped in parer, and a sheet of paper should be inserted between each layer of fruit Only fair and large sizedlemons should be frwarded, asthere is no demand for small oars. The brokers strongly advise that the exportation of grapes should be left severely alone, as likely to cause those sending them heavy loss. It is best to pack them in sawdust or ground cork, but e...

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

Hints to Irrigators. Different kinds of soils require different methods of irrigation. A person who learns how to apply water inone locality, may have everything to learn over again if be move to another neighborhood. A randy loam requires one system, while a clayey loam requires another; and these two systems have many modifications as there are many modifications of these two classes of soils. Many other questions also enter into a deter. mination of what should be adopted when irri. gation is to be practised. A sandy loam takes the water very rapidly, hence a large stream of water must be used, and that should be run for a short time only. T here is just as much judgment required in irrigation as there is in pruning trees or drying fruit It is very easy to overdo thewatering of the orchard or vineyard. The tendency of the neophyte is to over.irrl. gate. He seems to think that if a little water to good, a lot must be much better. If growers were to irrigate lees frequently and mor...

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

Apples as Medicine. Chemically, the apple is composed of vege. table fibre, albumen, angar, gum, chlorophyl, malic acid, gallio acid, lime and much water. Furthermore, the German analysts say that the apple contains a larger pereetage of phosphorue than any fruit or vegetable. The phoephorous is admirably adapted for renewing the essential nervous matter of the brain and spinal cord. It is, perhaps, for the same reason, rudely understood, that old Scandinavian traditions re present the apple as the food of the gods, who, when they felt themselves to be growing feeble and infirm, resorted to this fruit for renewing their powers of mind and body. Ales the acids of the apple are of signal use for men of sedentary habits, whose livers are eluggish in action, these acids eeroinB to eliminate from the body noxious matter which,. if retained, would make the brain heavy and dull, or bring jaundice or skin eruptions and other allied troubles. Some such experience must have led to our custom ...

About Watches. During the night (says the "Industrial World")your watch is quiet, as it were that is, it hangs In your vest without motion or touch. If you don't wind it at night the mainspring is then relaxed, instead of being in that condition during the day. By windino it rn the morning the mainspring remains close and tight all day. It keeps the movement steady at a time when you are handling it. running about the city tending to your daily affairs. A relaxed mainspring at this time accounts for fine watches varying slightly.
