Josh Billings' P0ilosop?7. SLIVVEIS. PAsnvxcc hba won more than hafl the battles or life, besides making many draw games.

A PrnovEr iz a short sentence, bright all over, sharp at both ends, and plump in the middle.

Varieties. Brazilian Girls. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

Varietics. Erazilian Girls. The climate is made for love, laziness and lganr ttl-smoking. In spi:e of the enervating influences so crevaleOt, lots of business is Sr~rneected in Blabia, mseetly after the plan of Scoservntivo euldanes, sureness and conse qtlelrt safety. Tile eenotitas are as beantifu! as houris in youth, and can love like a house afire. Their figures are really models for bronze Veenses, and their feet arched like rainbows, and Cin derellar in size. Their glorious eyes can eel any well-constituted man's blood going at a Eingle glace ; and their ruby lips are, as many of the boys can practically prove, equally perfect in action for kissing or ciga rette smoking. They have money, many of them lots of it, and they stand ready and willing with all their worldly good3 to endow almost any young Englishman of whose al fcetions they can become undisputed mia tress. RItd hair and freckles are not counted as obstacles in the matrimonial market. In fact, at first acquaintance, s...

Some Cheap and Nutritious Soups. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

Some Cheap and Nutritious Soups. Theor people-and they are not a few who think the micion of sopa is in simply to fill them, lkeithe Conl:ressman, "c:ockfull," and that this is about all they amount to, have only to try a cooup of aried pens, or beo no, made about as thick as good cream, to change their minds at once and for ever. They will find that after such a soup ta begin with, they cannot eat a very heavy meal,and as these soups are cheap, they help to solve the problem of cheap iiving that is vexing so many caretakers of scant family purses. Split Pea Soup.-Soak ona pint of split peas over night; in the morning, drain off the water, and add three quarts of fresh water, and boil until the peas can be robbed through a coarse sieve or a vegetable press. If the water boils away too fset, add more, so that the soup, when done, will be aboun like cream for thickness. The seasonings for the plainest form of this soup are pepper, salt and buhotter only; but the flavor may be varied b...

Domestic. The Two Mysteries. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

Dolxmctl:c. -- -0 .- The Two Mysteries, We know not what it is, dear, this sleep so deep and still; The folded hanns, the awful etim, the cheek eo pale and still, The lids that will not lilt again, though we may call and call, The Strange white solitude of peane that settles over all. We know not what it means, dear, this deso late heart and pain, The dread to take our daily way, and walk in it again, We know not to what sphere the loved who leave os go, Nor why we're left to wander still, nor why we donoth know. But this we know: our loved and lost, if they should come this day, Should come and ask us,' What is life? not one of us could say. Life is a mystery as deep as death can ever be; Yet, oh, bow sweet it is to us, this lilfe we live and see I Then might they say, those vanished ones, and blessed is the thought, So death is sweet to as, beloved, though we may tell you naught. We may not tell it to the quick, this mystery of deaoth; Ye may not tell it if ye couldthe mystery of ...

HEALTH. The Pleasure and Bonefit of Walking. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

ILATII!E . The Pleasuro ?nd Bonefrt of Walking. BY IItARLt;LY IArKEn. "After breslfast ouseo to smite; After dirner sit awhile; After supper walk a mile." So runs the old familiar couplet, which, I no doubt. has someU truth for an excuse for Sit execrable pretence to be poetic in form. My object in the present writing is to tell a hard.worked proleo?ional man's experience witherelcise by v:aolkog. If one can freely chooee, a little time alter breakfast has fairly begun to digest is Eo: lainly an ideal time for a walk. But most of us cannot choose. Inexorable business I bas its own hours. Then, if we can poseibly walk to business we had best seize on the only opportunity of the day. Take it slowly; for the blood is needed in all vital action, and if it is sent to the legs, and arms, and back, and lungs, in the Exercise of walking the poor stomach will have to suffer. Rapid walking with a full stomach is even dangerous ; in elderly men it sometites pro duces apoplexy. The whole circul...

Serious Bush Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

ierrlouss Iush Fire. -o Great excitement was created early vesterdy nafte.rnon by the sight of a ,ldeI.e volulueu of' smtll.ke which was sud denly seen to be rising between Messrs. Lloyd's Tannery and the Sugar Loaf Hill. Shortly after, the manager of the Tatooke estate rushed into town on horseback announeing that a large paddock of Mliss Gavan's was on fire. Immediately everyone who could do so started off for the scene of the conflag. ration when it was found that an area of several hundred acres was ablaze and advancing with great rapidity be fore the strong breez', towards the heavy grass crops beyond the Creek. With commendable pluck some forty men slashed asay amid the intense heat and the blinding smoke, till by dint of their continued and united effr sa, the flames were partially sub?lIed; bultowing to the obscurity of the atmosphere asd the length of the line of fire--whichl continually broke out afresh long after it was apparently subdued-it was a long time before all anx...

Duck Shooting at Nagambie. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

Duck Shooting at Naganblie. The district of Nagambie has become quite notorious for its sporting facilities. People frequently travel long distances in order to indulge in a day's cod fishing there but it in still more famous for the vast flocks of wild ducks which frequent its swamps and lagoons. Every year, on the recurrance of the opening day for shooting these birds, large numbers of people frequent the neighbourhood for the purpose of sharing the wo, k of filling the first bags. This interesting day came round again last Sunday, the 21st, and the "Goulburn Advertiser" gives the following account of the opening : To lovers of the gun the opening day of the ducs season in this district is one fraught with great interest. This year the fatal (to the ducks) day fell on a Sun 'ay, and as a consequence, shooting was not legal till the following morning. For the previous week the paraphrenalia of war had been examined andi tested in a critical manner, and ever)thing made ready for the...

Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 January 1892

Strath Creek. o: (?ro0 OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The picnic which came off here on Boxing day did not prove so suc cessful as had been honed, owing prin cipally, I think, to the general want of unanimity. However, the cricket match between Reedy Creek and Strath Creek came off as predicted-a very evenly contested affair. Reedy Creek was in charge of Craig, and batted first, but only put up 35, owing the destruc tive trundling of Harris and iilliear. On Strath taking the wickets, two fell for three rune; but. Hi)liear who cap tained the Strathites, and Harris, put a different appearance on things ; the former making 20 by free play the latter 16 by continued stonewalling. In their next innings Reedy Creek made 63 , chiefly throngh; the instrumen tality of Hibbins (24) and Shaw (9). The fielding of the Shrath boys in this innings was very defective-no less than 7 easy catches being missed. Strath required but 31 to win, but the innings ecosed for 28; Reedy Creek winning by two runs. The...

Eight bells had been struck aboard the sloop of-war Teier, and the mids, in their litue berth, were partaking, with a keen rlieb, of salt junk, potatoes end sea bisouits, when one of them jocosely remarked "If we eat to much of this ' bull'" (the salt junk), "it may tess us overboard." As this there was laughter, with applause. from every reefer present. "Although I cannot swim a stroke, I could easily float if I id go overboard," said John Harris, a youth of eeventetn. " I would lie over on my back, my chelt expanded, my mouth above the surface, and thus I Wou!d-" "Sink I" broke in young Thompeon, nne of the party.

The Face atthe Window. Silvani Todd met me at the Saville one evening and took me aside. I waso living in two rooms not far from the Edgware road. " Look here, Willisms," he began, " I am going to Egypt on this cholera commission. and I shall be away for six months at least. It you like to move into my house while I am away, do so.":' ' Into your house in Grosvenor street 2" I exclaimed. "Yes. Why not "' he replied lightly. I will leave cheques for the rent and taxes. You will be doing me a kindness. Galt is a tidy man, but I would prefer not to leave the servants alone in the house." " But as to rent 1" I said dubiously. "Never mind about that. Or stay. In place of rent you can pay the servants' board wages, or find their keep if you please." "Done with you," I cried heartily. A week later I moved into the housone in Grosvenor street, No. 190. It was a fair-sized house. On the right of the hall was the dining room, spacious and wainscoted in oak, with much sombre furniture, and one...
