A Mining Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 August 1892

A Mlining I)ispute. PRO~EEDI?GS of an unusual character took p.ace on Friday in connection oith the lease in Friedman's Reef at Sparrowhawk, Bendigo. The original holders of the claim have done no work for some years, and reccntly a number of miners, under the   impression that the ground was long since alaudoued, took up elaius under miner's rights, and autter working some time, gold was struck in one of the claims. Then it trans pired that the lessee, F. J. Friedman, of   Melbourne, had continued to pay rent, and he took proceedings to have the men declared   trespassers, which was done by the warden on Thursday last. In the meantime the men took roceeedings to have the lease forfeited. The miners who had been working in the claim had previously broken a quantity of golden stone, and on Friday the lessee sent out a party of men to bring this to the surt'ei and have it crushed. When the men arrived at the claim they were met by 30 or 30 miners...

Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 August 1892

Strath Creek. -:o Tee roads out here are in a very bad state ; worse than they have been for years. Hilliears bridge remains uncompletelt and as the temporary crossing is under water every time there is a swell in the creek, those whoh supply milk to the creamery find it very inconvenient. Speaking of the creamery calls to my mind the fact that an accident occurred to the machinery a few days ago, causing a stoppage of separating operations for some hours. The united exertions of Mr Jackson, the manager, and M1r. Coomlbe, the local black-smith, soon had things in working order. An attempt was recently made to hell a meeting of the Strath Creek Athletic Club but only four members turned up. I can't understand why the local sports should Ihe so shy. Perhaps they do not know the S.C.A.C. has a credit balance of some 15. Tinm is going by that should be malde use of. WVhy notget up a concert and ball for next month.

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 August 1892

Spring Valley. -o:0: TIERE were over seventy applications for the positioln of managers to the Home wood and Spring Valley creameries. Three or four local boys, who have been working at the Strath, applied but were unsuccessful. The manager selected for Homewood is a student from Iookie farm and the one for Spring Valley is a first-class man. A meeting was held at Glenburn last week to consider the advisableness of erecting a creamery at that place. The meeting was divided, some want ing to join in with the Yea company whilst others wanted to form a small company of their own. The result was the project collapsed. Tenders were called and closed on Thursday for the carriage of cream from Flowerdale creamery to pick up cream at Strath Creek and deliver at Kerris dale; and, also. from Flowerdale to Yea and Strath Creek to Kerrisdale. The weather has been very favorable to the growth of grass lately. The milk ers are improving but thsre are still a few of the old stook dying off.

A Harsh Director. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 August 1892

A1K . ?arh -irectlor. AN EXPENSIVE J.oe.-A joae which re sulted in anything but good fun for the perpetrator was recently enacted at a gold mine not a hundred miles from Yea. One day one of the directors of the complny arrived, fully equipped with a second suit of clothes, to pay a visit to the mine. Whilst he was exploring the depths a number of men, who were waiting to go on the next shift, thought they would play a joke on the inquisitive director with a view to persuad. ing him to 'shout." Accordingly it was suggested (for he had changed his clothes in the engine shed) that his boots should be hid, but no one cared to take the initiative step until an enine-driver came forwalrd and forthwith, without any hesitation, deposited the hoots in the water tank. Tile director at length returned to the engine shed to put on his travelling suit, and all went well until he came to shoeing himself, when he waxed wroth at finding his boots were miss. ing. Many were the inquiries and threats ...

ABOUT MIRRORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 August 1892

ABOUT MIRRfOIiS. To ne tcesity for asometlins which woulil enable a man to see his own face must have been early apparent, and in all probability the first mirror was the placid surface of a body of water. The next most accessible object was a pieceof polished ametal, and it was of this material that the first artificial mirrors were made. The Israelites, tIltler Moses, had mirrors of bra.ss, a?i doubtless other metals were used louig before that period. Black glass was used; for lmirores, as well as transparent glass with some bhlack ub stance on the back. It. is related that the Spaniards founlld Inil ros f polislhedl black stone, both convcx anll co?cave, aullillm the Ilatives of South Amireic:a.

Agricultura! Notes. The Ilendigo Vignerons' Association has expressed approval of the suggested bonus of 3d. per gallon on colonial wine exported The equipment of the lrenalla Putter and Cheese factory being now complete, it has bhen decided to commence operations on 23rd August, when it is anticipated a fair supply of milk will be passedthrough the separators. A South Australian farmer is responsible for the statement that a crop of oats cut for hay acts as an eradicator for that terribly troublesome weed pest, stinkworth. If this is so it is strange the discovery was not made sooner. Such a cheap and profitable way of getting rid of a weed must commend itself to all whose land is infested with this mischievous pest. A company has been formed for the pur pose of erecting a butter factory at Yamnbuk and all preliminary arrangements have bet n completed with the result that the concern is expected to be in full swing shortly. The company has a capital of 2o0o shares of £t each, about...

According to 'Mr. Broom, sen., J.P.. father of the accused, who is a grazier near Nathalia, and a candidate for a seat in the Numurkah Shire Council, being formerly a member of the Echuca Shire Council, his son left home on horseback on Thursday morning, the 11 th inst., to assist an employe to put a wire in a fence some three miles from the home stead.

The Mlallee Districts--Iil dura as it is. Tae Victorian public says a correspon dent in the Leader, is pretty well posted on darkest Africa and Stanley's exploits, but have a dim idea where Mlildura and the Mallee district are situated, even after so many costly and local advertise ments. Mildura township is about 380 miles north-west from Melbourne on the Murray River in Victoria. To an Englishmen this vast region is just one third the size of old England. To an Irishman or Scotchman itisconsider ably more than half the size of either country. A railway is now being made which will shorten the gap of direct com munication by 50 miles and be only 90o miles from the irrigation boundary. If the link was completed soon, then there would be ample room for many thousands of gardeners and their families for several -ears to come, within the Mildura boundary which can fully support too,ooo inhabitants. Similar colonies existed in the classic periods, and have continued to exist since in bo...

It was one of which the colony should be proud, especially at a time when there seems a disposition to in. dulge in jeremiads and make-believe that t the country is going to the duga.
