By. the k.thor ot 'Laddie,'! ."Tip Cat," "Lid," etc. TA PROLOGUE. There was an apple-tree in fall bloom the day the child was born, and that was why she was called Pomna. tHer father, Owen Ludlow, had retired rrom the agitation prevailing in the bright, little house that still bore the marks of the newly married plainly about it, for his wedding .day was barely a year ago, and had betakenhimself to the small room that was called his studio, and had nearly spoilt a pretty sketch on his easel by an unaccountable unsteadiness in his. hand, and so had given up the attempt, and had stood looking out of the window, imagining that he was takino artistic astock of the pink and white glories of the tree outside and of the sunshin dappling the green moss on its trunk, and at the (lnsterof white narcissus underneath. Really, he was quite unconscious of what he was looking at, all his senses being concentrated in disc next room uwith hit young wife ; but, all the same, that day was inseparably ...

Sad Drowning Fatality. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894
Sad Drowning Fatality. &nbsp; A very sad case of drowning occurred here on Wednesday last, the victim being a fine young man named Robert George Hobson, son of Mr. Garlick Hobson, of "Highfield," Broadford. Between two and three o'clock on the day named, several young lads agreed to go down bathing in a hole near the railway bridge, and the deceased was one of them. They had not been bathing long before young Hobson got out of his depth by losing his balance, and not being able to swim, was at the mercy of the waters. Young Norman McLeod, and others made attempts to rescue him but did not succeed. It was not until after the arrival of Frank and John Reid, sons of the Rev. J. Bently Reid, Presbyterian minister, who imme diately started diving, that the body was recovered, having been under water se &nbsp; veral minutes. In the meantime, Drs. Skinner and Morton had been sent for, the former arriving just as the body was landed, and immediately set to work to try and re...
A Wallaby Song. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 February 1894
A Wallaby Song, ----o - By Cleggs Up with the billy and on with the swag, Work may be scarce but what care we, Sheep-dip, tobacco, and full tucker bag, Oh the swagman's life is jolly and free. The stations are good and the days are bright, In the flax of the river we'll lie and dream, Plenty of time to reach somewhere by night, Oh we love the sound of the lazy stream. Graft's all right by way of a change, When you want a cheque for a harvest spree, But these pound-a-week days it's better to range Wiith the swag and the billy light-hearted and free. I met an old joker what come from South, And we dodged along together a while, And he cried for a job with so poor a mouth That if I were like him-well, I should smile. Wot's the jolly use of working all year Clo'es and tucker is all you'll get, Why it makes a bloke quite sick to hear The way that some coves will "whip the cat. Had by the publicans, that's the cry, Shut the shanties and give us a show, Man! but the world will be mighty dr...
Never. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894
Never. Never talk about your neighbor; He has faults, and so have you! But if you must chat and gossip, Stick to what is right and true. Nhever judge by outward tokens Of the hidden inner man; Dive beneath the crust of seeming Search the spirit if you can. Never wound a friend or brother By a ehar or bitter word; Heart-eche e the worst of ailments With the fount of feeling stirred. Never overreach another Give good measure fall and free, Scripture measure overflowing, - As thou wouldot have him give to thee. Never drink of joy or pleasure That will leave a pang behind ; Better is an easy consecience _ han.toarcs? bright chains that bind. Never fear the speech of people When yuu do the best you can ; He who fcares duty nobly Ever is the better man. --Mrs HI. A. KIDDE.

The Terrible Times. A LEAnr.Dn PROFESSOR GIV'ES s50ME VALUABLE IDEAS. "These are times that try men's souls.' The speaker was one of the leading pro. fessors in a well-known medical college, and he was addressing an audience of ladies and gentlemen who had assembled to listen to his wisdom." "'The bank suspensions, the mercantile failures, the scarcity of money, the dulness of business and the anxiety connected with it, all bring a fearful pressure on mlen and woomen at this juncture. Is it any wonder that we hear of suicides and other desperate deeds at such times as these ? Men are under a terrible strain, and women naturally suflfer by sympathy." " All these things are to be expected, but as far as the Ieelings and health are eon cerned, their etlects may easily be overcome. 1 do not mean by running away from duty or by resorting to the use of stimulants; but I will tell you what I do mean."

Diamond Drill. As WILL be seen in another column, there is an agitation on foot to try and secure the diamond drill, which is now at work at Kilmore, to come on to Reedy Oreek before it leaves the district.

Mr. McKENZIE pointed out to the Secretary that promises had been given before that the drill should be sent to " Reedy," and those promisus had not been carried out, Mr., IOwrITT is now causing a search. to be made in the departmental records to ascertain if such promises were made a note of itl any of the onfice books. If it is found that p...

Waindlong. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Mfl last letter, being the first contribution that has appeared in your valuable columns for some considerable time, caused quite a conversaziane among the local residents, and the query generally was.-" -Have you seen the Courtta."-As anticipated, the "Ded 'Orse" paragraph seemed to "catch on' with most people, and was instrumental in creating hilarious discussions; and really it was amusing to gaze on the innocent young maidens, with cheeks like the rose, empha tically repudiating their cognizance of the whereabouts of the " Lovers' Walk," and even some of our recently wedded folk could not refrain from displaying their guilt,-but they appeared to wink the other eye. and say-" we've both been therebefore." How. ever, on behalf of the residents, (especially those residing in close proximity), and all those young cupids who innocently stray down "Dead Horse" way, I have to tender their most heartfelt thanks to the local Inspector of Nuisances...

Local Baths. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894
Local Baths. WVIILE dealing with the subject above, we thought it would not be out of place to write a few lines on the subject of local baths. Broad ford certainly possesses natural ad vantages far superior to many inland towns of this colony, and possessing these advantages, could we not easily turn them to very good account. We have a beautiful running stream, conveniently situated, with a number of suitable spots, any one of which, with but slight expense, might be turned into one of the most pleasant and commodious of bathing places. There are portions of Sunday Oreek, known to most residents, that could be fenced off, planted with ornamental trees, and in many other ways made beautiful and attractive. In fact, a botanical gardens, on a small scale, might easily be established. Of course, there will be times of flood, which will have to be provided against; but, we believe, with a little skilful engineering, a suitable place could be found, and the scheme carried out in such a ...
The Man Smith. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894
The Man Smith. -o A leadnmg English paper (St. James's Gazette ") calmly tells a story which has a strangely-familiar harg about it. A well-known cricketer, it says, a certain Mr A. S. Smith, was lately travelling in Spain with his wife, and was at Barcelona about the time of the recent explosions. The story proceeds thusly:- Not hearing from him, his relations, who were becoming anxious, induced the Foreign Office to telegraph to "the authorities" at Barcelona to make inquiries. The first tele gram was somewhat in this form : SArthur Smith, British subject; in Bar celona during recent outrages. Kindly make enquiries and wire results." To this came the answer afteran interval : " The man Smith ae in Barcelona. He is being watched." And again, a little later, came a further telegraphic report from Barcelona: " The man Smith attempted to leave Bar. celona last night-is now in custody." Shortly after He Smith himself wired to the Foreign Office : "Owing to your confounded telegram, hav...

It is fully 3 inches in height, and nearly 3in. in treadth, weighing 971 carats, or about 7oz. troy.
