FROM the full report of the Select Commis sion on Assisted Land Settlement we extract the following interesting portions of evidence givon by Professor Shelton: It may have been my good or bad luck, in 1871, to be a member of the celebrated Greeley colony, located on the high plateau fifty miles from the city of Denver, in the state of Colo rado. I was there within six months after it located. It was strictly n co-operative colony. The members selected a considerable area of land, appointed offioera, and formed a village. They were mostly persons with some little means; New Englanders and some West erners. The enterprise was started in way: Thf land was sold in lots. I went there with 1400 dollars, about £300. I bought 80 acres of load, for which I paid GOO dollars ; and for the water rights irrigation right-another 100 dollars. Of course this was in open level country trimilnr to that beyond Roma.

The D'Arcy Stanfields. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 July 1892

The D'Arcy St&aflelds. Tiie D'Arey Stanfield Pantomime and Opera Company played at Longreach on tlio last three nights of tlie past week to Tory large audiences. Country stages are not Mutable for the production of spectacular plays and pantomimes without a profusion 01 scenery, transformation hcihs, ballet, and all the usual stage accessories of tbis description of play. Without them, in a measure, it is dreary, disappointing, and unsatis factory alike to tho unfortunate performers and to the audience. " Little Monte Christo" as performed by Miss Eva Clements and Mr. Stanfield at Longreach was the mere skele ton of the original extravaganza. The dia logue is sparkling, although burlesques are now played out in civilized communities. Rhymes, puns, young ladies in masculine costume, and men in women's clothes, are drifting rapidly out of fashion. The vivacity of Mr. Stanfield and Miss Clements redeems much of tie dreariness, and carries it through to its termination. The loca...

The force of the explosion was terrific. Near by is a terrace of cottages. Not only were they utterly wrecked, but the ceilings were torn down in great patches, and the plaster of the walls thrown all over the floor. Superintendent Bear was thrown violently on...

STORIES TOLD Catching a Colonel. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 July 1892

STORIES TOLD Catching a Colonel. THE Colonel of the Red Hussars was an Irishman, who was as proud of his nation ality as it is possible for an Irishman to be, and that is not saying a little by any means. He carried his patriotism so far, as to aver that not only were the Irish the finest, the most courageous, and the most gifted of the four nationalities, but that nearly all the really great Englishmen were really Irish men. He justified this Hibernianism by a mode of reasoning which was highly original, bnt not wholly convincing. It would have provoked shouts of laughter in the mess if it Lad proceeded from the lips of a subaltern, but toe Colonel was an altogether different person to deal with. It would be dangerous to quarrel with him, and ho was as peppery as a London fog, or an old maid who has been jilted by the ourate. It was considered far more advisable 'to give him his head,' and let him exhaust himself by the violence of his own efforts. When he launched out on his favor...

Indoor Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 July 1892

Indoor Work. AN American physician declares that iudoor workers suffer more from kidney and liver disease than any other class of workers. He says " A man goes to his office and Bits tlierc all day, and never thinks of relieving the ten sion on the muscles of the back, the result is that the muscles of the kidney become soft and flabby and lose their vitality, the kidneys themselves become weak and debilitated, and the final result is termed Bright's disease, probably ending in extreme nervous prostra tion. The signs of the onset of such diseases are well-known, the appetite becomes fickle, the eyesight failp, palpitation ensues, a weak feeling is experienced, and a small acho in the small of the back. Now when these first ap pear the case is only beginning, and proper treatment always results in a permanent cur<^ but if neglected the complaints pass into the ' chronic stage, and then require very protrac ted attention, and the cases sometimes become so protracted that ev...
