Out and About. (By "PHASroM.') "A chiel's amang ye takin' notes, And faith, he'll prent it."--Burns. It has been reported to the local police that a coil of fencing wire is missing from the railway station. Finder please return. On Sunday afternoon some young men I came across a cow belonging to a loral resi. dent in a very critical condition. The poor beast was lying down in an exhausted state, being unable to get up, whilst several crows feasted greedily from its flesh. The cow was removed to be.,er quarters and is recovering. Pugilism was pretty prevalent in our usually peaceful town one night last week; two fights being reported. The menane meat failed to apprise me of the event so I oam unanleo givte details. About 9.30 p.m. last Friday night I heard a crash of rolling stock at the station, and on making inquiries found several trucks hald been seriously damaged.

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

SACRAMENTO. It was an odd name for a girl-Saera. mento. Sa the girl herself thought as she stooped down beside a Epring at the foot of a cottonwood. tree, and lazily dropped her pail into the clear water. " It ought to have been given to a boy. if it was a fit name for anybody," she said a!oud. "But I'm more boy than girl, any way." The fact was added rather bitterly, as she looked at her brown, rough hands and bare ankles, and thought of the "boy's work" she had to do. It wasee hard to believe that this was the best kind of a life for a young girl like Sacramento. Here she lived alone, for her father was down at the mouth of the canon all day. The garden work she was obliged to do, and the care of the cattle fell upon her. It was not often that she saw any lp r. son but her father, although now and then, in spite of hereelf. she came in contact with the rude men of the raining comp above. Yet Sacramento had her dream, one that she scarcely dared to own, it: it came to her often as ...

" The stories that always appear numer ously just after a fearful railway accident, or the sinking of a ship, about people who intended to go on that train or that ship, but whose minds were so strongly impressed by a sense of impending danger that-they stayed at holme. The case in the paper here is of a man who intended Io take a certain train, anil went to the station to do so, but it was implressed upon his mind that he ought not to go, and lie dlid not. The next thing lie heard was that, the train had gone through a bridge, and that scoresc of people were killed iandt injured. Now, I don't believe that story, nor any like it.

THE DANCING OF THE DAY. AN "AT HOME" WITH A PUPIL OF TAGLIONI. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 July 1892

rV~-DAN'ING OF THE DAY. f- AN "AT HOME" WITH A PUPIL OF TAGLIONI. (r'HE girl of the period has grown reck w lessly independent. No liritish matron is any longer shocked or even surprised at her daughters playing cricket, football, or hockey. All these things go without say ing. But now the independent young damsel has all at once taken it into her head to advance a very big step farther in the direction of what'she is pleased to call equality, and even now she is straining and straining very succeesfully-to oust her whilom lord and master from a position where he has long reigned 0npreme. What until quite recently was a hall or dance "without dancing men? A failure, and a tlhing of eehioh a hostess stood in greater dread than o?4ailure of the price de r"e;ds auceat the dhinner or saniper table. The dancing man knew his value, and tried to augment it by giving himself the air of a martyr when entering a ballroom. The girl suffered, him for a while in this character, and then-since si...

Yea [?] Mems. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

There are no less than five names mentioned as aspirants for the post of Shire auditor-Messrs. S. Dessour, T. F. Roberts, A. H. Snodgrass, J. Gem mell, and W. Graham. The contest should prove a pretty lively one if all go to the poll. The voters' list for the year 1892 un derwent revision on Saturday, and 20 new names (all who applied) were placed on the roll, only two (who had sold out) being sfruck off. The Ctourt consisted of Crs. Scale (President), Webster, Condon, and M'Cormick. Storekeepers would do well to keep a sharp look out for theives. Last week one of the fraternity entered by the window at the rear of Mr. Waddle's store, and rifled the tills of their con tents. The tills are fitted with patent springs and locks, but the thief was equal to the occasion, and managed to open them. Fortunately the cash had been banked the same day, and his reward was less than he probably ex pected. There is a considerable improvement in the Tea-tree Mine. On Saturday the fortnight's retur...

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

Reedy Creek. [FROM OUC OWN CORRE-PJNDENT.] It is my pleasant duty to report for your valuable paper, a social reunion of the elite of this charming and delectable locale, arranged for the ehtertainment of our friends and residents. This reunion took place in the Town Hall which was superbly decorated for the occasion by our illimitabe local talent. The scene was truly sublime, the coup id cell magnificent. The ladies' costumes, of course, the latest wonders of Worth and other eminent Parisian costumiers. The dulcet strains of the local orchestrians murmured soothingly on the balmy breeze, and the Terpsichoreans had a most enjoy able time. A light collation was ac ceptably partaken of at 12 o'clock, and after the usual respite the band once more made night delightful by the soul inspiring melody of a "Strauss" waltz. The floor was occupied to its fullest capacity by the happy couples. Other pleasant sets, and round dances followed, and all ended happy as a wedding bell at 4.30 a.m. T...

Whaling Expeditions. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

Whaling Expeditions. -:o: At the anniversary meeting of the Royal Geographical Society the president announced that several whaling expedi tions were preparing to set out for the Antarctic regions, and that some geo graphical information might be expected to result from the movement. This is satisfactory news, so far as regards the reopening of a long abandoned enterprise, but the expectation of the whalers going far enough south to add anything impor tant to our knowledge of Antarctic geo graphy is not likely to be realized. From 50 to bo years ago the South Seas swarmed with American whalers from New Bedford, and there were a number of firms in Sydney and Hobart Town who sent out ships on the same venture. These ships were largely manned by Maories and white natives of new South Wales, with and occasional blackfellow of the Sydney tribe among them. They all went " on the lay "-a socialistic ar rangement whereby they became partners in the speculation, without as. suming any of its...

The meeting was well who were very anxious that a creamery should be erected and the necessary shares were subscribed forthwith. The meeting then adjourned for a week f r the purpose of giving farmers who were not present an opportunity of attend ing and having a voice in the selection of a site. This meeting was held in due course and it was unanimously decided to erect a creamery near Mr. Neil McLean's res-dence. The West Glenaroua farmers then came forward and said the site was most unsuitable and if the creamery was erected at Mr. McLean's they would be unable to contribute their milk, and would be compelled to negotiate with the Kil more company for one at Hanford's Lane or elsewhere. ...
