Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 September 1892
Spring Valley. MR G. EVANs was the successful tenderer for the carriage of cream for the Yea Dairy Company. He is to start from the Spring Valley Flowerdale creamery to pick up the Strath Creek cream and deliver at the Kerrisdale Railway station three times a week or as the manager may direct. The examination of the local State school took place yesterday week, with a result of 88 per cent. The general report for the school was exceptionlly favorable, and Miss Brownlow deserves every praise for the manner in which she has fulfilled her duties and brought the school to the above success. The weather continues wet but is favor able to the growth of crops, grass, etc. Farmers are unable to plough for the late crops owing to the wet state of the ground.

Mr. EdwardKing writesthus from Paris to the Ikoston J,stral concerning i, : "There is one thing which the master, seated in his comfortable study at cleudon, had not considered, and that is the change In the literary fashion, just as important and imperative as the change in hats or bonnets, shoes, or the colors of toilets for the premieres at a theatre. It never had occurred to him that he might outlive his vogue, and that the dlangcr of creating a specialty abnormal and more or less indecent in literature lay pre cisely in this fact, that some day the public would weary of the adnormal, and turn, as it has for the last three thousand years, back to the pure and the correct in form. There was anl immense peal of latughter throughout Paris when the f'igare published, the other day, the protest of five of Zola's apostles against the extreme vagaries of their master. The protest was well written, yet ungenerous, because some of these youngpeople had been towed into smoolh water by Zol...
LAST SATURDAY'S MATCHES. BROADFORD v. KILMORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 September 1892
LAST SATURDAY'S MATCHES. BROADFORD V. '?ILMORl_. ENLtv:?NED by the sweet strains of music from the Broadford Brass Band, it is little wonder that a large concourse of people gathered on the local reserve on Saturday last to witness the contest between the aboeve clubs. The weathrer was beaotiftl--thougih rather warm for football. G. \Vhyte skisp. pored the lhaals, as did J. Morrissey for Kilmore, Whyte won the toss and elected to kick towards tho southern goal, having the advantage of the very slight breeze. From the bounce it was manifest that the game was going to be a good one, both clubs put. ting their very best teams in the field, an I each and every man being determlined so tlo his level best. T. Iloban was the first on the ball and passed to Synona. Kenny marked ; .Morrissey and Wilson relieve.i and sent down the ce,tro. Reid marked in front of the local goal, and the oval was rushed out of hounds. Horsfall was awarded aifree kick and through the agency of Reid and Synon til...
Miscellaneous. Beneath the Surface. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 September 1892
fiDicc?[lticottu. LBenjeath the Suv?face,. Beneath the surface there is wealthy Though often hid from view ; We catch the drosm as if by stealth, And miss the good and true. As deepest currents ever g.;dl Where scarce a ripple floats, So hearts their richest treasures hide, And souls their richest notes. We see the light that faintly beams; But, from its feeble glow, We fail to trace the flame that gleams Beneath the outward flow. We deem the mountains proud and grand; Their wealth is not in show; Though high their heads, their golden sand, Lies deep and far below. We ever judge by outward show The wealthl that lies within, And by the surface we would know, The prize we seek to win. The rank andl dress will oft deceive The worth of soul to tell, For merit true we oft perceive Where birth unkindly fell. We gather stones that round us lie, And shells of dullest ray, Yet paus the gems unnoticedl by And fling the pearls away. And many thoughts that fill the mind, And virtues of the soul...

Strathl Creek. :o' [FROMI OUR OWN CORRESI'ONDENT.] TIIE ball which came otf last Friday night was a very enjoyable affair. There was a fair attendance.
