From King to Captive. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
From King to Captive. "It is a Ring of Rome !" said Napoleon the First, proudly presenting his infant son and heir to the delighted Conit. -. Outside the palace of the Tuileries crowds'of people were assembled, anxiously waiting for the guns to fire the salute, and then they would know whether a prince, an heir to the throne, had been born, or a princess. Everybody hoped it would be a boy. Boom! The guns began to fire, and the watchers began to count, for there would be only twenty-one salvoes for a princess, but a hundred and one for a prince. "Nineteen-twenty-twenttwentyone," the ex citement was intense. "Twenty-two !" The Emperor had a son; and so delighted were the people that they burst into loud cheers, threw their caps into the air, and even hugged each other for joy. Napoleon watched them for a moment from the palace windows, with the tears rolling down his cleeke. He, too, was proud and happy, for Europe seemed to lie at his feet; he was at the height of his power; and now ...

How to Cure Corpulency. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 23 February 1894
How to Cure Corpulency. The main feature of fat in the animal body has beenu made the subject of much spirited discussion; on the one hand, it was contended that satisfactory evidence exists of the conver sion of starch and saccharine substances into tat, by separation of carbon and oxygen, the change somewhat resemblmg that of the vinoua fermentation; it was urged, per contra, that oily or fatty matter is invariably present in the food supplied to the domestic animals, and that this fat is merely absorbed and deposited in the body in a slightly modified state. The onestiun has now been decided is favor of the first of these views, which was enncia'ed byProfessor Liebig, the very chemist who formerly advocated the second opinion. ly a series of very beautiful experiments, MM. Dumas and Mihe Edwards proved that be-s feeding exclusively upon sugar were still. capable of producing wax. Dr Ebatein advocates the use of fat in cases of corpulency. while other doctors as high up the ladder...

To put it more correctly, the omember was having a chat witl mne. ie lives by chatting, so to speak, gets paid for it, and so it comes more handily to hhn, I'm only a carrier, certainly, and what little education I've got my father had to ;oy for. lBut, then, I've a veto, and in th'e democratic country Memhstr? of Parliament are not particular.

"Mlen are Deceivers Ever!' - - o - nUT THIS TImO A ,WO?A? wa~s EQUAL TO TILE OCCAkION. I have a wooden leg. No one would know it. It has seldom troubled me. Sometimes, in fact, it it a convenience : in a crowded tram ear, for instance. The stout lady who grinds her heel into one's toe enjoys only a fancied triumph over me, for my wooden leg is always the prominent one on each occasions. Once, alas! it stood in my way, as you shall see. I was engaged to a lovely girl. You can't think how gracefully I went down of my wooden knee and asked her to be mine. She used to wonder how I could hold her for such a length of time on my poor, lonesuffering knee. You see l couldn'thear to tell her that ohe wasn't engaged to a whole man. She couldn't be expected immediately to see the advantages of a foot that could never have the gout, that could wear the tightest shoe with inpunity, and that was exactYy as much at her service as ly more proper self. So I put it off (not the leg, but my acknowledg...

A RUSSIAN HORROR. e- - The "Kolnische Volkzeltung," a Roman Catholic organ at Berlin, publishes from a trustworthy source some sickening details of the maosscre at Krosche, in the Government of hovno, in Russian Poland. As was re ported in tile cables at the time, the Catholics of the place took it in turns to guard their chnrch day and night to prevent its, being taken by surprise by the Rns?ians At two o'clock on the morning of the 10th November, Prefect Klingenberg, of ovno, arrived at Kroecho, accompaniedby40 strongly armed policemen.There were about 70 persons in the church. Cursing and yelling, the police rushed at the devotees, beat them with the knout, and struck them with their swords, so that the church echoed with the cries of the wounded. Some succeeded in fleeing to the belfry, where they rang the bells, thus summoning the rest of the in habitants, who crowded into the buildine.

Sir George Elliot. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Sir George Elliot. Sir George Elliot, "the bonnie pit laddie," whose death is recorded, was born on Waterloo Day, 1lS1. He was a Gateshead boy, to whom the trap-door of a pit proved the avenue to fortune, but he himself has been heard to say that there was far more enjoyment and real happines? in acquiring knowledge for its own sake than for the sake of pecuniary gain. The know ledge he so industeioualy acquired, however, brought him far more than its own reward. His success as a coal owner began In 1840. When Messrs lackhouse and Mounsey pur chased, on his advice, the Washington Col liery, near Durham, Sir George took equal shares with them. Three years later he took the leases of the extensive coal mines at Unsworth, which at first anpeared nnremunerative ; but when the lowerseam was reached, containing gas coal of the highest quality, the epeculation proved' most successful. In 1863.4 he became pro prietor of the Penshawe Colliery, where 35 years before he had served as a hewer w...
About Precious Stones [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
About Precioas.Stones One of the rarest andm t precioaus tones is the carbuncle, which is sometumes mistaken for theruby, from whichit differs by the intensity of its fires, produced by an internal lustre of gold, while under the purple of the ruby there only appeardotting of azure of lacquer. The virtues of the carbuucle are resistance to fire, preservation of the eyes, promotion of phasant dreams, creation of happy illusions, and an antidote against impure sr. Ethiopia produced the most precious ancient carbuncles. The Chaldeans regarded this stone as a powerful talisman. Le"end makes the eyes of dragons out of carbuncles. Garcia ab Horte, physician of one of the viceroys of India, speaks of carbuncles which he saw in the palace of that prince which were so extraordinary in their brilliancy that they seemed "like sedhtot coals in the midst of darkness." Louis V'ertoman reports that the King of Pegu wore an enormous one, which at nught appeared to be be lighted up with the sunbeams...

Football in the States. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Football in the States, It appears to be the fact that the football mania in the States is even more ardent than it is in England (asys the "Manchester Guardian.") University matohes like that between Yale and Princeton are played at New York, and the gate money at the last match amounted to 50,000 dol. A "Profeasor in a well-known college" writes that "generally the teams are mae up of men of whom many are n college solel for football purposes, hired and salaried with the proceeds of gate money. Apparently profeeaionaliamhas gone even farther than with us. At all events wekeep it out of the Universities. To lovers of the game, however, this is not the most interesting aspect of American football. The brutal violence with which it is layed in the States cannot justly be at the door o i ? by. Ihe Americana have spoiled and brtalied the Rugby game by a change which would make an old Rug. beian exclaim with horror-This I' the " in terference principle" or the ." flying wedge." Xr Walte...

Correspondencc. ---:o:-- We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. BROADFORD'S REQUIREMENTS. To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. A REMARK made almost by every stranger who comes to Broadford is, ' What horrible streets you have in your township." And certainly anybody who has seen the streets of other up country towns, younger and smaller than Broadford, must endorse the above. quoted remarks. BIroadford, within its town boundary, pays rates to the amount of £100 per annum. With the subsidy, this would entitle the township to £200 yearly (less office expenses), to be expended on the streets with in the town area. But what does any stranger see when he steps out of the railway yard ? Streets which are dust bins in summer and swamps in winter, ornamented with some of the ugliest gum trees in existence, over whose exposed roots carts upset occasionally, just to let people know that they have been there for years, and are thgre still, and probabl...
Accident to Troopships. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Accident to Troopships. O I do not think that adequate notice has been taken of the absolutely scanda lous sequence of accidents to our troop ships, remarks a writer in the " World." Since the trooping seasenbegan three of Her Majesty's troopships have broken down-the Crocodile, the Serapis and the Malabar. The last case is peculiarly bad. The Malabar, on her voyage from Queenstown to Bo1mbay, with 1,700 souls on board, has broken down three times, and is stilf lying at Malta. She broke her crank-shaft for the first time when a few miles from Malta. went into the dockyard there for repairs, sailed again after a week's delay ; broke down again, and returned; was again "repaired," and resumed her voyage, and again put back on 19th December, to be laid up again in Malta for another fortnight. If we are to judge of the state of our war vessels by the condition of our troopships, it is not only quantity, but quality, that we mrty be alarmed about. The re peated breakdown of the Malabar i...
