VAILLANT THE ANARCHIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
VAILLANT THE ANARCHIST. | From information I have had from a medi- I cal source (writes the Paris correspondent of the "*Daily News"), the Anarchist at La 1 Sante must be a vain fellow, He wants to 1 know what people say of him, and he shows i readiness to inform on others. Thus, he says that when he made up his mind to strike a great blow he determined to go to a militant Anarchist of fortune, and ask him for money, without, however, saying I for what he wanted it. A 100.frano note was handed to him, and no question was asked. It was this money that enabled him to hire the eecond lodging, and to buy the two sacepans and the chemicals. The confession of how he acte3, which he made to the investigat I ing magistrate, M. Meyer, is, if true-and there is no reason to doubt its veracity-full and circumstantial. Vaillant placed the bomb under a flannel waistband or swaths, which was wound 3 several times round his body. The top was ' kept upwards both by thih band and by the dynamiter's h...

Abyssinian Atrocities, The following, from the Rome correspon. dent of the "Doily News," supplements the report of an atrocious pieoe of work conveyet inarecent cablemessage: Letters have beer received here describing indetail some atrociousactsof barbarity per petratedat the Abyssinian Court. Some time ago aconspiracy was discovered against the life of the Negus Menelik. Several well. known members of the Court were implicated in theplot, but, in view of the influence they possessed, the Emperor considered ic advisable to pardon them. It appears, however, that a youthful attendant on the Negus had been aware of the deeret movement against his Majesty, and took to flight on the con. spiracy being revealed, as he feared his Royal master's anger. he was subsequently captured, and, without the pre. tence of a trial, was condemned to have hie tongue cut out and one of his feet sawn off. The sentence was duly carried out, but, not content with the torture to which the boy had been subjec...

When old enough robegin her education, she entered Mount Washington Fsma!e College, in Baltimore county, Md. Speaking of herself recently, she touched very lightly on her career as a spy. "I had last left school," she said, "when the war began. I entered so heartily into the cane of the South that my exploits and services to the Confederate army became familiar to the whole world nearly. During my career I was twice sentenced to he shot, and for eleven months I was a prisoner in the old Carroll and Capitol pnsons in Washing. ton. " My military career was ended in 1864, however, when I ran the blockade with important despatches and was captured. Then I was banished from the country by President Lincoln.

A Terrible Experience. A Swansea correspondent telegraphs that the mate (Mr whitehead) and several of the crew of the Plymouth sailing vessel Mendosa have just arrived at Swansea from Marti lqaue, and report having had a terrible ex perience while on a voyage from Daker to Barbadoes. Dakar was reached safely, but while discharging coal in that port four of the men-Straw, boatswainm; Tresis, cook; Nel son, seaman; and Morley, a cabin-boy sickened from cholera and died. It was found impossible to ship more men at Dakar, and so the vessel left in ballast for Barbadoes. When a week out, the captain, H. It. ?Martin. of Plymonth, was taken ill with a terrible disease known as "black vomit," and died six days later. By this time such heavy storms were encountered that it was decided to alter the vessel's course forMartinique. Efforts weretnade to fumi gate the captain's cabin, but without suocess, and It was found necessary to barricade it up; but aven this did not have the de aired effect...

The Baroness nee Weiss, of Thorn, in Prussian l'oland, is a beautiful woman, and excels in breaking in spirited horses.The Baron was first an olti5er in the Russian Nary, and attached to the staff of the Grand Duke Alexis. He then went into the army and served as an aide.de-camp in Siberia. Lear. ing that service he joined the Cossacks, quar. relled, and on one occasion fought a furious duel in which he was wounded. The murder or manslaughter took place at Clermont-.Ferrand, in the stable part of the circus. It was perpetrated with a revolver which sent three balls into the body of the Daniehoflicer.

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Reedy Creek. .:o [FROM OUR OWN CORRE.PONDENTJ. THa mines on the Creek are still look ing well. Roberts and party intend crushing from the old Shepherd's line of reef shortly, when good returns may be expected. Farrell and party are engaged carting from their new reef, they exrect to send about 40 tons to the mill, which is believed to be of a highly payable nature. At present the reef is 8 feet in thickness, and looking well. Work at the Tonatal alluvial work ings has been suspended to an extent, owing to the want of water, but pay able gold is being obtained by several parties, It is currently reported that we are to have a visit Trom Mr. Stirling, the Government geologist, who is being sent to report on the most likely places for the operation of the dia mond drill. Should we be lucky enough to get the drill on the Creek to test the deep ground, it will most likely develop rich reefs at a greater depth. It seems incredible to think that reefs crushing from 30ozs, to 50ozs. of gold...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
No one nowadays can afford to be extrava gant. It is ruinous to leave aeggoas, carts, strippers, sthinghinders, winnower, and other machinery made partly or wholly of wood out in the beat and cold, wet ans dry weather without shelter. It is bad enough to expose iron implements, such as ploouhs, harrows, scarifiers, etc., to rust and spoil, but it is mad ness to expoee the first inamed to be ruined in a single season. We must be very careful both of dead and live stock, and provide ample shelter for all, Dags must be protected from mice and rats, and grain aud seed must be well looked aler. Above all, the sed must be both clan and well selected. By constant selection and reselection, and by keephin the fields clear from weeds, it is posoible to double the yiald of wheat or other grain. Too many people think it is the land which gives the increae, but it is the skill labor and intelligence of the man who worksit that improves the yield from a farm. " No smoking ber, sir," said the gua...

Midsummer Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Midsummer Day. -0- Dark is the night. The skies are overcast. About our feet The shadows gather; all our joys have passed Like phantoms fleet. Roi?gh is the way, all strern with rock and Thorn, that we must tread. Dark is the clnud that veils the rosy morn High overhead. Amidst the dsrkness, at its nestling's cries A bird awakes. We lift our gaze towards the distant skies, Lo, morning breaks! Amid the rocks the sweetest flowers are born When spring awakes; Lo! from the bough that bears the cruel thorn The blosso, breaks. And from the leaves that perished yesteryear Fresh verdure prnmgs. So every grief but brings a joy more near, SBeneath its wings. -BEnI DaY, m the " Oayflower."
Compensation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Compensation. The leaves hang down unstirred; the cloudless skies Throb with fierce heat. Close-huddled, here and there, The patient sheep encircled gasp for air, Heads bowed together, tortured by the flies. As smooth as glass the wieding river lies. Save where some basking pike leaps up, or where A fluted shallow breaks the blinding glare, Or poising fisher dives to snatch his prize. With bare, brown breast, the stalwart farm. hand swings His rhythmic cradle thro' the grain, or stands Withi ringing whetstone in his brawny hands. A dark, dim clcud to the horizon clings, And far away, a peal of thunder rings, Like rumbling wheels that die away to sands. -JAuEs B c?i.. Bell Boy : "Dere's a young couple on de piazzy as wants you to send 'em some chairs." Clerk : "Is it bright moonlight ?" Bell Boy : "Nope; dark." Clerk: "Take them this chair."

The Follow-On. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
The Follow-On. The London "Daily News' devotes an article to a question of interest to cricketer:, from which we make the fol!owing extract: The subject of the " follow on " at cricket excites more discussion than ever since it became known that the Marylebone Club Committee propose to alter Law 53 of Cricket by letting the " follow on" he at the option of the kide which has gained a lead ot St or more runs on the firct innings. A proposal to this effect is to be brought before the general meeting of the Marylebone Club in May, and if adopted will come into force in the season. At pre. rent, of course, a aide which is ,tn ormore usn behind goes in a second time, the team which has obtained the advantage having no choice in the matter. Experience has chosn that on the carefully prepared wickets of the present day it is often a serious risk to bowl and field through two innings in succession, and opinion was slowly ripening on the subject when the much-discussedl incident in the Oxfor...
