Emancipated Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Emancipated Woman. A certain magazine, which professes to be the organ of "emancipated" woman, contains, among other extraordinary matter, an article which recommends that all unhealthy and deformed infants should be done to death by amcsthctics. Of course, the "eman cipated" woman is actuated by the purest "religon of humanity," and desires above all things the perfection of the race. But do we wish a perfect raca . What if we were all healthy and all good, if nobody ever ate wrong things or drank aught save the pellucid water of the Thames ? We should immediately apply for an au:lsthetic ourselves to es cape front the terrible dulness. As for the women, with their votes and with out their stays, they would be worse than the men. Marriage would go out of fashijn, and the human race would become extinct through exesss of virtue. It is impossible (c?ntmuesthe writer inthe " St. James's Gazette ") to take this erratic lady's proposition seriously, for if woman obtained her vote, and a...
St. Valentine's Eve Party. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
St. Valentine's Eve Party. " What is that !" asked Saralh, as I was looking through the morning mail and paused atone especial msesielve. This "' I asked, holding up aheart-shaped, double card, tied with a white silken cord. , Yes;" who is sending you a heart by mail r' " Wouldn't you prefer a male heart to any other " I queried ; and with a laugh and just the suspicion of a blush, she frankly admitted that she would. ThenI untied the oddly.shaped missive and read the following: Mr and Mrs M. request the pleasure of your company on Valentiue's Eve, February 13, at eight o'clock. Onthe opposite page were two doves sitting on the blossoming branch of an apple tree and hilling and cooing in a most amiable manner; and above this scene of contentment and bliss was the oft-quoted couplet: "Two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one." " It's aninvitation," announced Sarah, as if I were still groping around fora solution of the problem. "Its from the M.'s, too. Wemust ...
An Antidote to Care. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
An Antidote to Care. ~-0 Think that the grass upn thy grave is green, Think- that thou wost thine own empty chair; The empty garments thou wast wontto wear The empty room where long thy haunt hath beon, Think that the lane, the meadow, and the wood, And mountain summit feel thy feet no more. Nor the loud thoroughfare, nor sounding shore ; All mere blank space where thou thyself hath stood. Amid this thought created silence say To thy stripped soul, what am I now and where? Then turn and face the petty narrowing care, Which has lbe?a gnawing thee formany a day And it will die as dies a wailing breeze Lost in the solemn roar of bounding seas. JdEES SrnlssIa in the " Academy." Admiral Benlham, United States, re ports that the foreign representatives in Brazil except Germany arein favor of a monarchy.
Childs' Costume. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Childs' Costume. The above may be made in any colored cloth, thbe skirt is kilted and set in a band, a little zouave is made of the same material; a blouse may be of any material, smocked below the yoke and above each cuff. The one I saw was of navy blue, with a cream flannelblouse. The costume is suitable for a litle boy or big girl. Without the zouavo it makes a liouse dress, and with the zoanove a smart walking dress, the zouave taking off the bare appearance of the blouse. An inepensive ando pretty change of ostume nmay be made by having blouses of varied colcrs to wear with the skirt and zouave. e
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Sweet and Twenty. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Sweet and Twenty. Sweet and twenty, and fair as the day ; Plenty of lovers are bound this way. Sweet and twenty, with eyes that shine, And lissome curves that are rare and fine. Dimplesthat play at hide.and.seek Onthe tender mouth and the rounded cheek. Serer had maiden a lily-white hand Softer and queenlier to command. Never had maiden a foot more light To dance a measure at morn or mght. Sweet and twenty can row and ride, Over the rippling wavelets glide; Harness and drive and climb and filh ; Make you many a dainty dish ; Talk in English and French and German, Which the sweetest, you'll not determine. Sweet and twenty has lifo before her, And all who meet will of course adore her. But what shall come to her after all Queen to reign, or to serve, a thrall Only the stars above can tell. Dumb stars that hide their secrets well. -" Harper'e Bazaar."
The Origin of the Side Saddle. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
The Origin of the Side Saddle. Had it not been foranaccident of fashion, the gentler sex would be striding their horses still, and that the side saddle is not an invention due to the modesty of advanced eivilisation. It appears that one Anna of Bohemia, eldest danghter of a German Emperor, and wife of an English king, introduced the estom. not from delicate repulsion to the old method, but simply because she was afflicted with some sort of deformity that rendered it impossible for her to ride upon the saddles in common use. In those days it was imperative that a woman should ride; accordingly, the first tide saddle was in vented. Royalty had then, as now, snobbish followers, ever on the alert to adopt fashions honored by its patronage, and in a few months every woman of poeition in Englanid ouaessed a side saddle, and the custom was eatablishedo Raw onions are preventive of reapand colds in fowls. " They should be chopped fine and mixed with the other food.
A Dear Set of Harness. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
A Dear Set of Harness. An Oigo atorekeeper recenutly bought a lat of harness which indirectly cost him about ££3 more than the usuIl price, and that because of his carelessness or "Lenny-.wse pound.foolish'" proclivities. li assistant in delivering a van load of goods was perched upon the top of the load, when the rotten old backhand parted and let him down flop in front of the wheel. The boy's leg was badly fractured, and his father came upon the employer for medical attendana. and loss of wage'; and so the boss bad to buy a. new turnout of harness at a cost of aboit £4). It would be as well for farmers to recollect that if they send out their men with rotten harne. or badly.worn implements they are liableto the extent of £500 payable to the injured manor his family. It a man is driving a reaper and has old and rotten reins of rope or leathers bolt might result, and a serious aecident oeccr. Apart from the financial liability, I give my brother farmers credit for possessing suffiea...
ESCAPES FROM PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
EfAPES FROMA PISDN, In recently published work, " Secret of the Prison House," by Major Arthur Gritffis, some interesting examples under the above headihn are given. We extract the teo fo!lowring: Molt modern prisons areao securely L-silt, and generally so well guarded, that tne chances of escape are altogether against the prisoner. French prison officials assert that escapes are impossible from La Grande Roquette, the great convict depot near Pere La Chaite, the scene too of the last drama on the now rare occasions when the guillo. tine is breught into play. The argument that La Grande Roquette is inexpugnable is negative, and based mainly on the fact that no one as yet has left it except those legitimately throuth tile prison gates-not even Blin, the most famous pricn-breaker of modern times, who had marde thirty escapes befcre 1S44, and who w'? successfully held at La Roquette. It was said of Blin that he could pene. treat arches, run along sloping roofs, fly down to the ground l...
French Officers in a German Prison. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
French Officers in a German Prison. The two French efficers who are impri soned in tee fortress of Glatz for espionage, live, our Berlin correspondent says, in two separate rooms, the windows of which look into the fortress yard. They are simply but neatly furnished with a table, chairs, wardrobe and bed. The floor is stained. The rules, which have to be strictly obeyed, are hung up in each room. The officers are allowed to read only novels. They are waited on by a soldier of the garrison, who cleans the rooms, makes the beds, brushes and cleans their clothes and boots and fetches their meals, which the wife of a sergeant livingin the fortress prepares. By orderof the commander, their meals must be good and am.ple. According to the "Breslauer Zeitung," their breakfast and afternoon meal consists of coffee, cream and white bread, their sup. per of tea and colt meat, their dinner of soup, roast meat (sometimes two courses), fish with wine sauce, and preserve. Their daily board is fixe...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
31. Bouillon, the sculptor, last month de liveted to the Ministry of Fine Arts of Paris the marble'bust of Dr. Cuillotin, the sup posed.inventor of the guillotine, which he was commissioned to execute for the eo.called- Gallery of the "Revolution in the Versailles Museum, and of which a small, rough model was shown at the last ex hibition of the salon. Dr Joseph Ignace Guillotinwas not, however, the inventor of the lugabrious machine to which his name has olunog. As a member of the National Assembly he displayed great moderation, both in lan guage and opinions. Longbefore the Terror he brought up the esubject of condemned criminals, and he proposed, from humane motives, that an inquiry should he held into the best substitute for the then existing method of capital punish ment. The guillotine, which was after wards adopted, was the joint invention of Dr Antoine Louie and a mechamic named Sohmidt. An almost identical instrument, called the Halifax gibbet, was in use in the last centur...
Pennarby Mine. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Pennarby Mine, By A. CoSai DOnLE. Pennrby Shaft is dark and deep, Eight foot broad, eight hundred deep, Rough the bucket and tough the cord, Strong as the arm of Winchman Ford. Never look down : Stick to the line! That was the saying at Penunarby Mine. A stranger came to Pennarbv SLaft: Lord ! to see how the miners laughed : White in the collar and stiff in the hat, With his shining boots and his silk cravat, Picking his way, Dointy and fine, Stepping on tiptoe to Pennarby Mine. Touring from London-so he said: Was it opper they dug for, or tin, or lead Y Where did they find it Iow did it come: If he tried with a shovel might he get some ? Stooping so much Was bad for the spine; And wasn't it warmish in Pelnarby Mine ? 'Twas like two worlds that met that day The world of work and the world of play: And the grimy lads from the reeking shaft Nudged each other, and grinned an echaffed. "Got 'rm all out!" "A cousin of mine !" So ran the banter at Pennarby Mine. And Carnbrae Bob, the Penn...
Carrying Round the Wassail Bowl. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Carrying Round the Wassail Bowl. --o-- The custom of the wassail on New Year's Eve is of very ancient date in England. The head of the house assembled his family around the bowl of spiced ale, comically called lamb's wool, from which hedrank their healths; then passed it to the rest that they might drink, too. the word that passed amongst them was the ancient Saxon phrase wtes.hbl-that is, to your health. Hence this came to be recognised an the wassail or waesel bowl. The poorer class of people carried a bowl adorned with ribbons round the neighborhood, begging for somethin wherewith to obtain the means of filling it, that they, too, might enjoy wassail as well as the rich. tOn their rounds they sang songs suitable to the occasion. The custom of wnssail at the New Year was kept up in the monasteries as well na in private houses. In front of the abbot, at the upper end of the refectory table, was placed the mighty bowl, styled in their language Poculum Charitatis, and from it the sup...
GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
GENERAL EXTRACTS. The rumor tha;.Lord Coleridge is to retire from his office of Lord Chief Justice of England, and that Sir Charles Russell, Q.C., M.P., the present Attorney-General, is to succeed him, is only an old rumor revived, although it is probably well-founded. Sir Charles Russell, by far the most eloquent advocate at the English bar, and one of its finest lawyers, is a Roman Catholic, and cannot, therefore, be appointed to the Woolsack. I The Lord Chancellor, like the Monarch, c must be a Protestant. At the time Mr I Gladstone cameo into office, it was said I that Sir Charles would be made Lord t Chief, and that Lord Coleridge c would retire; but the great Q.C. is c an Irishman, and a Home Ruler of long standing, and his counsel was, therefore, wanted in the inner circle of the Cabinet. Of Lord Coleridge it may be said that, by I his success at the Bar and on the Bench, England has probably lost a man of letters of remarkable calibre. He is a master of literary style, and t...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
General News. -:o: Punch's political bowling green, full of prognostications. Mr. J. MlcLuckie, P.M., wcll again and resumed duty at the Kilmore court on Monday morning last. The Premier of New Zealand, speak ing at Foxton on Saturday, blamed the bankina institutions for the present depression, quoting their returns to show that the deposits largely exceeded the advances, especially those in the Aus tralian banks which are doing business mi New Zealand. It was not right, he said, that the people of New Zealand should suffer for the extravagance and mismanagement in the other colonies, and the Government were determined that the country should not be allowed to remain in this unfortunate position. The time had come for the Government to make advances of money on real estate to settlers, and not leave them to institutions. 'tle Government knew that in propounding this they would meet with determined opposition, but when these inslitutions told them that owing to circum.stances over wh...

Heat and Disease Germs. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
Heat and Disease Germs. To boil all water ounng epidemic-and, roughly speaking, at any other-timesis a hy gienic maxim supposed to be quite safe to fol low. Doubts have, however, been raised, as to whether osdinsry heat actually kills some of the disease germs. Hlappilytho experimentsof MM. lallaud and Mnsou. described to the French Academy of Sciences, settle the ques. tion. Their observations were primarily made with the object of seeing whether the bacilli in the microbe impregtated-water too frequently used by bakers with a pump in their yard, or even when they take the " company's water" from a river not in the best sanitary condition, can survive the heat of an oven. The result shows that they are incapable of resisting the aciditydi the dough and the high temperature of baking. Some microbes or some spores, may recover after thIs ordeal. But all disease-pro ducing bacilli, including those of cholera and typhoid, are destroyed.
