" Well, we had made a successful but very - laborious raid, and we intended to rest for t the remainder of the afternoon and lay plans forthe final blow, which we expected on the morrow to give to the most desperate moon shine neighbourhood for illicit stills I ever came across.' "It was nearly nightfall when we arrived at the house designated, but I had enough time to renew my acquaintance with the pretty girl and continue my old flirtation.

NEWGAG, THE COMEDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 July 1892

NEWGAC, TLHE COMEDIAN. T was not his real name or his stage name, but it was the one under which hie was best known by.those who best knew him. It had been thrown at him in a cal one night by a newspaper nman, after the performance, and had clung to him. Its significance lay in the fact that his " gags" --.upposedly comic things said by presum ably comic men ill nominal opera or bur lecquec-invariably were old. The man who be-lo wed the title upon him thought it a lilne bit of irony. Newgag received it without expressed resentment, but without mirth, ind he bore its repetition patiently as seasons went by. lie was accustomed to enduring calmly the jests, tile itlligities that were elicited by his pecuhiar appearanic, his doleful expres sion, his slow and hIngling speech and movement, his dtlifdent nrnteir.

THE BROKEN COMPACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 July 1892

THIS BIROKEIN (S UII'ACT. They paced slowly along together, these two, by the dull, gray water that rolled sullenly up almost to their feet. The man's eyes, which were bent fixedly on the face of the woman who walked at his side, had both passion and despair in them. She, for her part, directed her gaze out upon the heaving mass of murky water and remained silent. As by a mutual impulse, they stopped, and stood facing each other. It was dusk, and they were quite alone. The woman spoke.. "It is foolish of you to love me so," she said. "Fully? yes," he replied, grasping her hands in his own. "Folly? yes, some would so call it. What do I caro for opinions-for anything, save my kunowledge that to you I owe the supremest joy of moy whole life? The mere knowledge that you lore me, that you are mine it. soul and spirit, compensates me for all the wretchedness that our lore entails. Before Iloved you, I existed.

HIbFItIST lGREAT DISAPPOINTMENT. "You seem preoccupied, Mr. Hankinson." -"I-I was not aware of it, Miss Irene." The young mall answered lher in an eubarrassed way. He had shifted his position again and again, as if uneasy about some thing, and had looked furtively at her from time to time with a surprised, wistful, laboriously-unenioSeious exlpreson, such as may be Feels on thle face of a ten-dlolanra week maos lingering in the business office on lmy.dsy morning, and trying in vainm to attract the ttention of the cashier without speaking to him.

Dividing Fences on Grazing Areas. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 July 1892

Dividing Fences on Grazing Areas. IT was mentioned in Toe Leader last week that a farmer iu the Yachandph district sought to recover half the cost of a boundary fence. The adjoining land is held under the 32nd section of the present Land Act, and was taken up after the farmer had fenced in his land. It was contended on behalf of the delen dant that no provision was made in any of the acts for the recovery of cost of fencing in connection with grazing areas. Section 13 of the Fences Act was said to provide only for freehold land and selec ted land that would eventually become freehold, and by an oversight no pro vision was made in the Land Act 1884 for any connection with the Fences Act. It was urged on behalf of the complain ant that the lessee applied for the land, knowing that one of the covenants was that he was compelled to fence it. Mr. Rowan, the police magistrate before whom the case was tried, remarked it was very important and he would reserve his decision. Accordingly the ...

Kilmore Notes. :o. (" FlREE PREss ") Crs.. Kenny, Eades and lHagan are the retiring councillors this year for the East, South and West Ridins, respectively of Pyalong Shire, and we think it likely, so well satisfied are the ratepayers with their conduct, that they will all be accorded the compli ment of a walk-over. Mr. Thos. F. Murray is likely to have a walk-over for the Kdlmore Riding of the Kilmore Shire Council, Mr. A. G. M. Hudson, the retiring Councillor not seeking re-election. Mr. James Poulton was spoken of as likely to enter the lists, but we understand he does not contemplate doing so. For the other ridings of the Shire the re tiring councillors are likely to be honored by being returned without a a contest. Mrs Bossence, wife of Mr Thomas Bossence, of Sydney-street, died on Tuesday last. Deceased, who was an old and respected resident of Kilmore, where she raised a large family, had been ailing for somne years prior to her demise. Mrs Bossence was aged 76 years, and her...

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 July 1892

Reedy Creek. :o: [PROM oUB oWN CORROEPJNDEIT.] I have visited the Tonstall dyke mines. There are a number of claims working, with every prospect of picking up the lost shoots of gold. The gold in the former days was supposed to have only reached the depth of thirty-five feet, but the last crushing of Barren and Liddells' has proved that it makes again at a greater depth. I believe in another month from now there will be a golden boom on the Tonstall dyke. MeManus and Liddell are down soft but have had some delay as the ground re quired timbering. McManus and Brady are sinking little. The gold to be seen in the stone is getting better as it goesdown Johnson and Sons expect to be on gold by the end of the week. The indications are very encouraging. Liddell and Farrell have got a little gold and intend sinking deeper and opening out. Barren and Liddell (the prospectors) are raising stone. They are very reticent as before. I daresay they will give us another surprise after crushing oper...

TILE ?EW fOPERA TOR.

There had long been n an ffinity between the two of a stronger nature than usually exists between telegraph operhtors. Nellie's tender touches upon the key could alone quiet the nervous twitching of Robin's arm, when worn out by the rush of messages and train orders. She it was who seasoned the magnetism of dots and dashes with a balm that kept his heart sweet and wholesome. This she often did, weaving the 'good-morn. inca and good-evening into lengthy conver sations. It so happened, one winter evening, that Ned Owens, the operator at Pine Bluff a little 794 station intervening between Milldale sad Fairfield, made use of his ground wire, thus cutting oft all communication between the lovers, but giving himself free scope to ...

AND, REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JULY 29, £892. Developing Our Natural Resources. Ip the exodus of unemployed' men in Melbourne, which is said to have set in countrywards, continues, so much the better for the country. That one half the population of the colony should be huddled together in one great city is an anomaly in any case; but when those people can only subsist by means of work, the greater part of which is either paid for with borrowed money, or provided by the imposition of crush ing import duties, the situation is not only anomalous-it becomes absurd. The real wealth of the country is in the soil, or lies underneath it. We have treasures upon 'which we can draw drafts for almost any amount we :ike for a century to come, and without the least fear of their being dishonored, for, in this case, our Banker is dame Nature herself. She does not object to our seeking a little assistance from o:her quarters-from men who have more money than they need, and ...

I The hon. member for Gunbower had said the other evening that the administration would require to be sympathetic. That was quite true, but something more than sym pathy would be needed, and that was know. ledge. He did not wish to assume the posi. tion of a critic of men who had occupied high positions, but he would say that the element of knowledge had been sadly de. ficient in regard to the administration of the land laws in the past. He admitted that've had had some Ministers of Lands who knew their business, but we had also had others of whom it would be a stretch of imagination to assume t...
