About the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

About the Weather. In Eastern lands a man meeting his friend of a morning observes that "God is great," a proposition which, in that old. fashioned society, no one is disposed to dispute. But among ourselves it is: "It's afine day," or " Cold this morning," that comes most readily to the lips, yet few people concern themselves with speculating why it is fine or cold or wet or dry, or realise how immensely the daily interest of life is contributed to by observation of natural phenomena and acquaintance with their cause. i Lord IRosebery dwelt not long ago on the amazing cheapness of literature and observod that one could buy the whole of "Pickwick" for 4d. It is a vast privilege, but surely itis still more remarkable that for Is Gd one can buy "Scott's Elementary Meteorology,"com. taining the solution of that problem of ths weather which hitherto through sll the agee has been the most perpiexing and engrossing of enigmas to mankind. "The wind bloweth where it listeth, but no man know...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

War is always at hand, in the present state of Europe, but nobody would dare to engage in it deliberately. The chances are too great. France must perish if she engages in an unsuccessful one; nsd a victorious war, in which Germany was crushed by Franch and Russia, would re sult in the subjection of all Europe to the latter. . . What a mockery if. after the victory, France were obliged to seek an alliance with Germany- ' Contemporary." 1

A Story of Loben. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

A Story of Loben.I Dr. Joseph Ratton has been hearing from Dr. W. H. Russell, and repeating in the t Newcastle Weekly Chronicle," a neW aneodote of Lobengula. Dr. Russell was staying with General Lanyon at Pretoria some years ago, when a tall fellow in jank boots and with slouch hat, a fine looking Boer, entered the fort. He was a clergyman and missionary, whohadbeen wth Lobeng'elaseven years. During that time he had got through the Old Testament with the King, but he could do nothing with the Nea. Lobengula liked fighting. He loved the battles of the Israelites; rejoiced in having the enemy smitten hip andthigh. Whenever the missionary tried to interest himin the New Testament, the Matabele King grew impatient, and insisted on returning to the sanguinary records of the bible. , Well," said the missionary, as he re lated his experiences to Dr. Russell, "at last I wanted to leave Lobeogula, not because I wasunhappy or dlialikedhim, butmyteeth are not good, and I had read in a newspap...

He wasin the habit of inviting people of different avocations to come upon the stage and he would dilate upon and expound the peculiari ties of their cranial construction.

"I am Lady Lester now, and I have been married eight years." Memories were coming back to O en Lud-' low's saind of his wife talking of her pretty schbol-lellow, who had married directly she let school-he fancied she had said a man a good deal older than herself.

"' IMITATI6N is the SINCEREST FLATTERY." The articles most imitated are CLEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS. WHY? BECAUSE they have the best reputation and are most in demand by the publie, con. sequently, every dishonest trader tries to trade on their fame and renown. It'is really wonderful that the Australian people are so slow to see the truth as regards the unscrupulous quacks and charlatans who prey on the credulity of the Australian public.. Scarcely a week ever passes but what the press exposes the bare-faced and shameful practices of some of these harpies, yet, in face a ofil they seem to thrive, and the paper who hounds them down most thrives fattest on their advirtisements and cracks champag?,e over each balauce-sheet.

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1894. Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

AND REEDY CRERK Tiaas. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1S9t. Swilllnlng. SISoc the sad drowning fatality last week, the question has been dis cussed and opinions expressed, as tc whether it is the duty of the State to teach the rising generation, who are now attending our schools, the art of awimmning. Doubtless there thew--sa- hisos whor will argues against saddling the Slate with any. thing extra in the way of education. We do not advocate anything extra, but the substitution of awimming for some other subject or exercise in the educational calendar that, in our opinion, is not nearly so necessary, either for the present or future good of the children. Originally, so politicians and others tell us, the Education Act swas never intended by those who framed it to go beyond the reading, writing, and arithmetic stages. Whether that be true or not, we find in our schools to-day an ex-. haustive and varied programme of subjects, which the teacher is supposed to teach, and th...

Antiquity of the Hot Blast Furnace. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

Antiquity of the Hot Blast Furnace. Is there anything new under thesun? asks the Railway Review, and then adds Solomon was right. The more the past is explored the more evident this becomes. A prehistoric blast furnace is the latest discovery ! Pro fessor Flinders Petrie, in 1890, convinced himself that in a remarkable mound called Tel-el-Hesy, in South Palestine, would be solind the remains of what was one of the ftrangeEt places in the country down to the invasions of Sennacherib and Nebuehad nezzar. The explorations, said Mr Bliss at the Palestine Exploration Fund meeting recently, have folly verified this forecust. Amid all the evidence discovered by Mr liies of theoivilization of that remote age-wine presses, treacle presses, alkali burnings and innumerable others-by far the most ourious is the Clsclosure of an iron bleat furnace, arranged to give etronu evidence of being intended to heat, in its descent, a blast of out side air forged through passages before entering the chamb...

Not Easily Seen. Co A woman boarded a Grand Biver avenue car at Washington avenue the other day who was hopping mad. The conductor reoognisedthe fact and did not reach his paw down and rest it on her shoulder in that benignand fatherly way he had affected all summer. In fact, be would have dodged her altogether, but she stood in the door and sur veed him from head to foot and demanded: "' Conductor ! I want the number of the car whihh passed up ahead of you !" "Yes'm-very sorry, ma'am, but I don't exactly recollect whether it was 8266 or 18,652," he humbly replied. " But you knew the driver!" "Can't say I do, ma'am. Can't say 1 know any driver but my own, and he isn't worth cultivating. Anything wrong ma'am i" "Of course, there is! I stood right on the corner and held up my hand and he never noticed me !"

Military Ballooning. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

. Military Ballooning. .o- Let as suppose that balloon and waggon have formed a junction and are ready to start with the troops. Away goes the waggon, withtheballoonhanging on toits tail, while the attendant sappers on each side keep it steady. The train moves along at a good round pace, easily keeping up with or even passing the infantry, and makes for the particular spot at which it has been determined to commence ballooning operations, which is usually on the top of a good high hill. An ascent is an easy enough matter, and soon accomplished. The balloon Is securely fixed to the end of a wire-rope, and the two men who are to ascend take their places. At the word of command, the men who have been holding down the car lot go, and up shoots the balloon, unwinding the rope as it rises, and allowed sometimes to ascend to a height of a thousand feet. And suppose the officer receives in. atructions to move the position of the balloon, is it necessary to haulit down Notea bit of it. A man...

Marriage of Miss Sylvia Grey. On Monday morning (says the " Pall Mall Budget " of the 23rd ult.), shortly before the visit of his Royal Highceso the Prince of Wales to St. Bride's, that quaint corner of the City was being agitated by another ex citement-or, at least, it might have been if it had known what was happening. A very quietly dressed voung lady arrived at St. Bride's Church, and so did an equally quietly dressed gentleman, end the pair were quietly married. There wre no brideemaids, bags of rioe, satin slippern, or any similar bridal appurtenanoes. The register only disclaed the fact that Richard Lenin Fenwick had entered Into bonds of holy matrimony with Susie Wiohett, spinster.

A Female Bridegroom. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

A Female Bridegroom. An interesting statement of a quite unique marriage case, decided in London lastmonth, and briefly alluded to at the time in the cables; is furnished by the ,,Daily News" as follows: The female bridegroom has now been assured. on the high authority of Mr Justice Chitty,.that she was mistaken, and that she was not a bridegroom after all. The case most appear mixed even to the ripe experience of the Chancery Division. The female bridegroom is an old woman of 74, who says that her real name is Cnllener, though she has again been asesured on unim peachable authority that it is Stanley. This old woman dresses as a man, and has so dressed for the eight-and-twenty years since she began to carry on the trade of a plumber. She first assumed the dress and calling to make it easier for her to get a living. She had be come a widow; and, though her husband left some property, she had a struggle to bringup her children. By his will, she was to have the income of the property ...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

-o Br Joanr rPeeaweN.. I read the other day that some of the Labor Party were coming to the conclu. sion that the retrenchment policy of the Government was like Falstaff's Bill, too much "sack" and too little bread. There is truth in the joke. And pretty bitter truth too. It's about time, indeed, that those who are " charged with the destinies Sthis great and growing nation," as the deration speakers say, should look round tor some other method of making things meet than saending men to the right-about in every direction. The civil servant-" curled darling," as some people called him - served many purposes besides merely doing his duty or not doing it, as the case might be." In the first place he was more often grey than curled, elderly than young, and married than celibate. He lived, as a rule, up to his income, and kept butcher, baker and a lot of other people going. Asa carrier I know it and so do a lot of small tradesmen who wish to the Lord they had never heard the word "re. tr...

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 February 1894

THE WIDE ,WORLD. A gentleman presented a parcel the other day at the railway station at Brle.Comtev Robert, and asked to have it registered at Vincennes. The railway official who weighed it said that it weighed 32 kilo. grammes, and that as fractious of 10 kilos reckoned as 10 kilos, the cost of care riage would be the same as if it weighed 40 kilos. The owner of the parcel seemed extremely annoyed at this. ''Wait a minute," he said, and he stepped out. eide, returning presently with about 7 or 8 kilos of paving stones, whisk he picked up at the station entrance. Thi he added to the parcel, which, with the extra weight, was accepted at the rate originally demanded. Doubtlees the irate customer of the company thought he had done a rather clever thing, but his triumph waa shart.lived, for on arriving at Vincennes he was, on peremptory telegraphic orders from Brie, arrested for stealing paving setas and marched off t prison between twopolie men.

The late Mr. Robert Hobson. The remains of the late Robert George Hobson, who was accidentally drowned in the Sunday Greek last week, were in terred in the local cemetery on Friday last. The funeral was one of the largest seen in the district for many years, being well attended by all classes of the com munity from different parts of the dis trict, which went to show the great es teem in which the deceased and the family to which he belonged, was held by all. The funeral procession was a very long one, being made up of twenty well-filled vehicles, about 40 horsemen, and a number who marched on foot, and, added to these, were many who went direct to the cemetery. The Rev. J. Bently Reid, Presbyterian Minister, conducted the service at the grave in a most impressive and solemn manner, many people being touched as the rev. gentleman read in earnest tones the beautiful passages of the burial service.
