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

FUNERAL SERMON, On Sunday morning last the Rev. J.   Benley Reid preached a funeral sermon on the late Robert Hobson to a large congregation in the Presbyterian Church. The rev. gentleman took as the basis of his remtarks Ist Samuel, 20th chapter and 3rd verse, "' There is but a step between me and death," being the words of David when pursued by Saul, who was searching for him to take his life. The preacher went on to show that the position of David was much the same as that of mankind in the present day. Death is the great enemy of mankind, and continually seeking (like Saul), our injury or destruction. With us as with David, knowledge of our danger is the true secret of our defence. To be fore warned is to be forearmed. Death is certain to come. We all have to meet it. To meet death is to conquer or be conquered, to be saved or to be lost. If trusting in Christ all is well. The rev. gentleman gave striking illustrations as to the certainty of death and the uncer tain...

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

Spriug Valley. o-:.* [5ROU OUt OWN CORREtPJNDEOT]. MYSe?L and others the other day had a trip from Spring Valley to the Australian Seasoned Timber Company's Sawmills, situated on the Sunday Creek, near Mount Dsappointment. The day chosen for our trip was a very hot one, being too degrees in the shade at the Valley. After leaving King Parrot we proceeded up the range near the Sisters, which is some 500 feet above the Creek. Once on the top the atmosphere was beautiful. We travelled about six miles througl, the bush from the top of the range, passing through several thousand acres of auriferous Crown land; and it seems un. accountable that such land should be re. served exclusively for mining purposes, when it would make homes for several hundred people. The land is of very good quality, heavily timbered, but perfectly free from scrub until you get within a mile of tle mill, and is almost level. The deputa. tion that waited on the Minister of Lands l.st Thursday was in reference to th...

IN A MESMERIC TRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

IN A MESMERIC TRANCE. It is somewhat remarkable that, although the doctrine of mesmerism (or hypnotism, as it is more modernly known) has proved so frnitful a source of controversy of late yeas, comparatively little practical explanation or personal experience regarding the matter has been hitherto forthcoming. Mystery or, at best, a varueneoe-seems to obscure darkly both the theory and possible develop mentsofhypnotism so far as the general public is concerned, nothwithetanding that many eminent authorities appear to have investigated them satisfactorily, and that we hear frequently of hypnotism as being an important factor in physiological experiments made both at home and abroad. Doubtless this acconuts for the undeniable scepticism with which the doo trine in question has been received; but the present writer is in a position to testify most clearly as to some of the curicus effects to be obtained the capable exercise of the "influence." I cannot undertake to define the nature o...

The Wanderer's Return. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

The Wandtlrer's IReturn. THE crimson glory of the dying sun was lighting up the mountain peak; the lowing of the kine was heard across the meadow, the tinkle, tinkle of manty bells, and the oecasional crack of the horseman'a whip, told the return of the cattle, and the usher ing in of the closing scenes of the day. At the portlic of the homestead sat an IdI man with wl.itoe lowing becad and silvery hair, A glance was sutlicient to reveal th:at his life had be-u one of many changes and much sorrow. tirat lines were written upnt his brow, and his skin was tanned and weather beaten.

Surgery. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

Surgery. Among the late discoveries in surgery there is none more important than when a limb or finger is severed from the body it can, by prompt treatment, bt replaced, and be made to grow there again. Formerly when a man lust a finger, hand, arm, or leg, or an ear, he was doomed to go through life minus these parts. But there is very little reason now why one should be minus a finger, or other parts of the body, except in extreme cases. Fingers that are cut clean off by macli nery can be carefully gralted on the stump again so that they will grow. Parts of the nose or ear can be replaced, and nature, in the course of time, will make the union so perfect that one would never know that the accident had hap pened. A few stitches are taken to hold the pieces in place, and by means of a little bandaging the fingers will grow again all right. It will never be as sensitive anil useful as before the acci. dent, hut it will be of some service, and will prevent disfiguration.

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

Melbourne Letter. ,:o: aBY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.J \VIIEN the last shipment of butter for this season leaves on the 3rd March, it is already pretty certain that the total ship ments since the middle of September will reach 7 oo0 tons. These figures afford food for thought. At lots of-factories where good cows are kept, and where the natural pastures are succulent, two gallons of milk, right through theseason, produce a pound of butter. But there are lots of other factories, unfortunately too many of them, where up to three gallans of milk are required for a pound of butter. It will be fair to fix the average for the colony at two and a half gallons per pound of butter. Reduction shows that in 7,000 tons there are 15,68o,ooolbs. At two and a half gallons per pound a further calculation shows that to produce 7,ooo000 tons of butter 39,200oo,000 gallons of milk must hare been used. The regulation quantities of salt and "' Preservitas" for use in export hutter are 32 and it per cent. re...

St. Matthew's Church of England. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

Ait. Mlatthew's Church of England. TaH annual Harvest Thanksgiving Service was conducted in the above church on Tuec. evening last, when the Rev. T. Moorhouse, R.D., preached an eloquent and appropriate sermon from the 95th Psalm-verse 2, " Let us come before Him with thanksgiving." The Rev. gentleman said, that to some people it would seem strange that in these depressed times they should come before God with thanksgiving. They might ask ' IIow can we come with thanks when there is so much misery and want round about us." The preacher stated, that notwitl.standing that was true, yet they had great cause for thank. fulness to God for health and strength, and for the many benefits and favours bestowed. It was only right and proper we should come before God with thanksgiving, after the bountiful harvest, He had blessed us with, and we were only imitating God's ancient people when they came with their first fruits, wine, oil, and corn to rendor thanks unto the Lord. W\e should remember...

Seeing in ounce bottle of chloroform on the counter I bought it out of curiosity, and took it away with me, leaving the chemi. .u's to follow. In my own rooms. seated in an arm chair, I put boar arops on my ann kerchief, and carefully placing the bottle on the table, at some distance from me, I sniffed the handkerchief. A pleasant sensation and's singing in my ears was the only result. So, shortly afterwards, I counted out eight drops, and acted as before. The nextthing I remember is finding myself on the floor on my back, my dress undone, my face, &c., dripping with cold water, and hearing a voice " He's coming to, I do believe." Ye., it was so. I came to after having been unconseious for two hours and a half. Nex...
