AN ARIZONA ADVENTURE. fJ'(ft HILE in command of a small scouting partyinArizonalwontinto camp one bright day on the Rio Paerco, very near the new Mexican line. The tents had been pitched and the animals sent out to graze under a strong guard, and I was walking before my tent impatiently waiting a ensummons to dinner, which I knew by the strong odour wafted from an adjacent coffee pot would not be much longer delayed. \Ve were about ninety miles from the nearest fort, and hundreds from any settle ment. " Dinner is ready, Lieutenant," was the welcome euninons with which my cook greeted me, and I was soon doing full justice to an army field dinner of bean soup and ,nlapjacks." I was in the rmidst. of this savoury repast when I noticed a stranger approacehing me. He was a well-built powerful-looking" man, about 40 years of age : his face was intellectuial and very handsomo; lie wore a full beard and mousitache, both of which were lon i gray. lie was coarsely clad and carried no weapon. ...

BRILLIANT FEATS OF HORSE MANSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

BRILLIANT FEATS OF HORSE MANSHIP. IyHERE have been many brilliant feats of horsemanship performed on the battle Held, both by individuals and by regiments. Moro than once during the PeninsularWara British cavalry oficeer was known to leap into one of tile enemy's squares of infantry Indcuthis way out alive. There occurs to me, as I write, two remarkable nets of daring during that war, in both of which the horse manship ws as as conspicuous ias the heroism oftheprincipal actor. The lirst of these episodes halppened, a few days after the battle of Sabugal, fought on the 3rd of A\pril, 1811, which Wellington described as "one of thie most gloriousn actions British troops were aver engaged in."

"CONVICT NO. 29." [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 August 1892

"CONVICT NO. 29." IT is a good offer, Matilda. Mr. Duff Esquire is a rich man, and he seems to be very fond of you," remarked Mrs. Samuels to her daughter, as they sat in the neat drawing-room of their villa at Clinden, a favourite watering-place. "I know that well enough, mamma; but look at the name-Duff Esquire. Isn't it a trifle odd?" "What's in a name, Matilda? I am sure     your own has a Jewish sound ; but you can please yourself, for you're uncle's legacy of £200 a year will be quite sufficient for you should you prefer a single life." Matilda gave a slight sigh, then began to disentangle some knots in the wool she was knitting with. But who was Duff Esquire? He had come to Clinden for the summer, where he took up his quarters in the principal hotel. Not too old, rather cheerful in manner, prosperous in appearance, he soon managed to become acquainted with the better-class residents and visitors of the place. He was a proficient at tennis, a skilful ...

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

Seymour Mems. John Norris, who was found guilty of manslaughter in connection with the death of Mr. A. Doherty, was sentenced on Saturday to 12 months' hard labor. Whilst shunting operations were being proceeded with at the Seymour station on Friday afternoon last, an engine by some unaccountable means ran off the line. Fortunately no damage was done, a delay of about one hour in replacing the engine on the rails being the only loss. On Monday last Mr. C. Henshall, of Seymour, consigned seven boxes of rabbits to the Distress Relief Committee, Melbourne. The undermentioned resi. dents of Kobyboyn contributed the rabbits, as follows :--Mr D. Chisholm, 5o pair; Mr H. Crawford, 30; Mr A. Stewart. 30; Mr P. Martin, 30; Mr H. White, 20; and Mr S. Ferris, 9.

There are cases where news. paper comments upon the actions of business men would not be in good taste. But it is not possible to class Mr. Munro as one of them.

It matters not in what manner Mr. Munro procured his appointment to the Agent. Generalsluhip. he people with whom lhe comes into contact know little about that, and they probably care less.
