Commercial. LIVE STOCK REPORT. Melbourne, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

Collllerciali. .o: LIVE STOCK REPORT. Melbourne. Tuesday. Fat sheep.-The market ws fllly supplied, 21,000 having been yarded. Good to prime qualities were largelyrepresentel. In c-nse quence of some of the largest buyers having supplies on hand, and the stock being well suited to trade requirements, the demand was without animation, and prices ruled le. per head under last week's rates. The do. cline in values was even more noticeable in heavy weight crossbreds, owing partially to a larger proportion of prime merinoes having been yarded than usual. Primeeross. bred wethers from 1es to 19s; extra do do, from 20sto 21s Od: prime crossbred ewes, from 13s to 16s; extra do do from 10s Od to 17s; prime merino wethers, from 14s to 1os; extra do do from 170 to 18s; a few to 10s; good do do; from 11s 6d to 2s ld ; middling do do, from 9s to 11s; prime merino ewes, ns to 10s 6d; a few front 12 to 13s.

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1892. Too Much Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1892. Too Much Protection. Tls time appears to be almost at hand, if it has not already arrived, when people-at any rate chose who depend upon rural industries-must pause and ask themselves whether protection has not been carried far enough. Protec tion is a good thing in its way, but, whaever may be thought of it in Melbourne and other manufacturing centres, people who live by the culti. va ion of the soil, and by the exercise of industries dependent thereon, have had time to discover that it is'not-an unmitigated blessing. Experience has not yet shown what would be the result of protection if all the interests of a community could be sheltered under it's banner, for those interests are so diverse and so angular that no one ex periment that has yet been tried has been found beneficia: to all of them. So lthat it would seem best to leave them to themselves, and let them stand or fall on their own merits. If evidence we...

il IRST CLLENT. SWO friends sat lazily smoking in an Soffice in one of our grent midland towns, how many years ago deponent sayeth not. They had bccen separated for some time. Charley Cecil had been abroad enjoying an extended tour, and had just come upon George Brown as the latter sat in his thumbers, a newly-fledged lawyer "waiting for his clients." "And now,:' said Charley, "let me hear somethine about yourself. You have told me nothing in return." " You talked so fast I could not get a word in edgeways; besides, there is little to tell. Here I am, j?st where you left me, waiting for clients, like the rest of young lawycrs." " ell, you must have patience, my boy. Some day the celebrated 'first client' will t:alk in and give you a chance to showt thomettle you are made off. After tiht: the brief's will come pouring in thick and heavy."

THE MAN WHO ARGUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

tIIbE JMAN WHO ARGUlsS. Is there anything on the face of the eartll more disagreeable than the man who argues ? A thief and a liar can be endured, because one cannot be perpetnally lying or stealing, but the man who was born with the spirit of argument in hisi composition follows the bucineen of arguingi continually. You cannot risk saying that the grass is green, or that a rat's tail is longer than a mouse's, without being contradicted and challenged to pirove your statcment. lie will discuss the subject pro andi con to show you that you are in error; and if you don't see it he will insinuate that some folks are intellcctually blind, and then your temper will rise, and his likewise, and you will say sorcth.llig hot, anti so will leo, andi there will be tiouble in thu e'ap. When it conies to married life it is safe to say that twlo-thirds of the divorces are cannued by argumnct. People who do not argone ohllucm Iappear in the divorce courts.

Kilmore Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

Kilmore Notes :..: The question of erecting a municipal hall in keeping with the importance of the town and district, is now occupying the attention of the Shire Council of Kilmore. We believe it is contemplated spending something like X2000 upon the project and plans have been already prepared by a first class architect. There is no doubt it is high time there was a suitable shire hall, but before dismantling the present building, which was in its day probably looked upon as an imposing struc-. ture, we would suggest that a photo of same be taken and presented as a memento to every ratepayer in the district. Mr Thos. Dudley, J.P., took his seat on the local bench for the first time on Thurs day week. Mr Hunt, the other magistrate present, took occasion to offer his coogratu lations to Mr Dudely on his appointment: Mr Whelan, on behalf of the legal profession, and Inspector Scalon, on behalf of the police, did likewise.

Whooping cough is very prevalent in Murchison, a great number of children suffering from this distressing complaint. The attendance at the school has been considerably affected thereby, but the outbreak was not considered by the health officer (Dr. Heily) serious enough to warrant the closing of the school. A much-needed reform in postal ar rangements is the subject of a petition circulating through the districts in terested. A letter, to reach a point only seven miles from Kyabram, must be sent round by Echuca and Rochester and then by horse to Mfeehan's and it's neigh. borhood, thus making a circuit of about 78 miles.
