The Matabeles at Buluwayo [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894

The Matabelcs at Bulutwayo The "Times" correspondent in South Africa thus writes of the Great fight at Buluwayo: " The alarm sounded while we were preo. paring breakfast, but the waggona were at once manned, and the guns opened fire. Thick thorn-bush fringed the two faces of the hager at 400 to 500 yards distance, and nearer by some 30 yards there' was a small knoll with a few burnt huts. Fortua nately, we succeeded in getting in the cattle and horses in time, the big gun open. ing a fire on the advancing enemy. Al. though the range was quickly found, the shooting was not sufilciently strong to pre vent many of the enemy from getting into the valley between the ridge and the laager, under cover of the intervening ridge. The real attack, however, was to be made from the bush, and this first rush towards the cattle would seem to hare been nothing more than afeint to divert attention. " The attack from the bush was made in a most determined and plucky manner, many getting within 200 ya...

Drought and Rain. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894

Drought and Rain. When feed is short in fields and ricks, And dams and creeks are shallow, And hard as Babylonian bricks The clods lie in the fallow. When lying clouds that promised rain, But meck the farmers' trial: Pass dryehod over fields of ,rain To water heath and myalf When burning blasts from No Man's Land Bring blight and dust together, With flying fogs of desert sand, As sampes ofits weather. When earth to sky in mute appeal Through gap and rent is passin; And that blue sky, like burnishedsteel, Both plain and hillis clasping. To farmers, then, the world grows wrong: Daysturn on hinges rusty They don't inchne to comic song Their words are few and crusty. The weather and the crops alone Prefix and end theirgreetings, Until in trouble recklessgrown They wander to tea meetings. Then comes a change, and sweeter far Than breath of blosom'd clover, A sea breeze sweeps the parched land, And waves the corn landsover. It bears the scent of ocean waves From isles and salt seao reache...

Melbourne Letter. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894

Melbourne Letter. [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDBNT.J (Continued.) REGARDING the establishment of a central dep6t in London, no two opinions can exist on this question. What is really required is a huge dep6t from whence could he con trolled the sale and distribution of all kinds of Victorian agricultural produce. Until such a dep6t has been established producers here will always be at the mercy of the London agents and middlemen, who, true to their creed, will take good care to scoop in the profits that otherwise wtould reach the pockets of the farmers. What with the saving on commissions and other charges, and the higher price Victorian butter'would realize by being marketed and distributed I to the best possible advantage, it is believed that our butter would net producers every season fully twopence per lb more than it will bring so long as it is permitted to re main a prey to the rings of committees for fixing prices, agents, brokers, and middle men, who wax fat on other people's hard ...

It is known well enough that the sugar beet will grow luxuriantly in the colony, and that of a quality. It is also known that the home market will absorb all the beet sugar that is likely to be grown for some years to cone, and when local wants are fully satisfied, there is the market outside to fall back upon. It is also recog nIised that a certain amount of pablio money would be cheerfully spared by Parliament and the people, until the new industry could be set fuirle upon its legs, and had become strong enough to walk alone. Because, it would be a great thing if the £1,000,000 we annually send abroad to buy our sugar could be tlpended amongst our ,.wn people in the production of our out of tha Treasury must be dispensed with discretion, it must be a !' result" payment, a,.d there must be some means of...
