iDeath of Anlln Bek. Tie magisterial inquiry, concerning the death of Ann Meek, was continued and concludedl on Monday last before Mr. C. MI. Ross, J.l'., and resulted in the husband of deceased, being found guilty of manslaughter. There was quite an air of excitement prevading the court, while the inquiry was proceeding. Messrs. John Noble, foreman; V. Palmer, R. H. Clayton, J. fowdep, and 4. Millard werethejury. The evidenca wess as follows: Emily Marchbank, on her oath, said I am a' married woman; I reside with my husband on the Sydney-road, about one mile from the townshipof Broadford, and about too yards from Meek's place. I have known Mr. Meek and his late wife for about II years. I was at Meek's place on Thursday, the 15th inst., between four and five p.m. Be fore I entered the house I called out " Are you in, granny." Mrs. Meek said, -' Comp in." I went in, and she was sitting in the corner. I said to her, '. How are you." She replied, '' I can't be worse."' I said "what is ...
The Matabele Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
The Matabele Oampaign, --o A long account of the Matabe!e campaign whichthe "Times" publishes from the pen of Mr Gerald Paget is very graphic and in teresting. The mingled bravery and super stition of the Mlatabele come out very clearly. The former quality has already been noticed. Of the latter, the following is a picturesque illustration: "They had only caught us up the day before, and had intended to attack at 10 o'clock in the evening, but we:e frightened by the rockets, explaining that they thought we were talking to the stars." But this superstitious respect for the white wizards was not universal. "A handful of boys' was the description of the company's forces given by one of the enemy. On the sublectof the wounded MLr Paget's articlethrows some furthr light. Hereare a couple of passages:-" In going round the busn afterwards we came upon an induns, evidently of high rank (as he wore spurs, carried a pistol, and had plenty of mealies for hishorse),hanging deadfrom atree. He ha...

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. -,o Mr Frank Iawthorn, who was with the Coutts-)uralli Company in India, has recently returned to Sydney. When at Colombo hevisited the grave of the late iMr Phil Beck, for the purpose of placing a wreath thereon. Mr Hawthorn states he found the grave utterly neglected, and without even a name, hilst he adds," The only toneouthe grave 1 brought away in my pocket." A Musie Hall syndicate is stated to have offered Mr John Burns L60 per night for half an hour's speech on any subject that he might choose to select. Mdlle.

The Power in the Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
The Power in the Home. IT is a striking anomaly that the woman who moulds the mind of the prospective legislators of any country is not considered fit to vote for or against legislation, not even the legis lation that directly affects woman and woman only. Man, being the stronger, and there. fore the rmore selfish animal, hasdecreed that the wife and the mother shall be ciphers, except in the conduct of their households, and, whether man is right or wrong in so do ing, we challenge contradiction of the fact, even at the risk of being deemed illogcal, that woman does not shine more in her simple rule at the fre-saide--in the quiet abnegation of petty pleasures-rthan she would in any public position. But this role of" household martyr" (and there are almost as many martyrs as there are households) can be over acted, and itgenerally is; not from any desire for effect on the part ofl the mother herself, but from the force of cireumstatrces. In many houses in Democratic Australia the mot...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
GENERAL EXTRACTS, t A locksmith who is called upon to pick a street-door lock should take c some means of ascertaining whether c the person who employs him is really the occupier of the place to wlhich lihe gains access. By neglecting this ob vious precaution, a locksmith carrying on business in Paris, in the Boulevard Rochechouart, has (according to the Paris correspondent of a Lonuou paper) got himself" into serious trouble. A gentlemanly-looking man came to him and said:-"I live at, 157 Rue du Fau bourg Poissonuiere, on .the sixth floor c and unfortunately I have lost my key. t Plcase come arid take off the lock and s make a fresh key for me." The unwary a tradesman did as he was bidden, and t took away the.lock, promising to return c with the key the following morning. When he did return, he was astounded at his reception. A gentleman he bad a never seen before rushed at him, seized r him by the throat, and called him " thief " and" burglar." As soon as he could explain, he did ...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
HERE AIN THERER BY Jonul PgEaRYTsLLE. Dot is not naturally an easily-frighte:ied woman. Barring the customary feminine objection to a mouse, and a slight ner vousness in connection with a cockroach or a tarantula, I might call her coura geous. I am convinced that, armed with a mop and a bucket of water, she would face a burglar, especially if he tried to come near one of the children. I have known her to brave a rate-collector, and on one occasion-a very sad one-au officer of the law, as he called himself (I called him abailiff)-was compelled to decamnp in the face of her decided refusal to open the door. But there is one thing of which she is frightened and that is an anarchist, or what she believes to be an anarchist. Within a snort distance of our humble abode-freehold, but unsaleable, there lives a highly respectable gentlewoman a cut above the ordinary "lady," who has been compelled by poverty to take ini lodgers. Among these is an elderly man with grizzled hair and moustachios...
A French Spy on German Prisons. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
A French Spy on German -'... Prisons. ý. ' A Frenchman named Klein, who has just been released after undergoing a long term of imprisonment in Germany as a spy, gives a very uninviting description of life in Ger. man prisons. Klein has just returned to Bar.le.Duc, where his family reside. On the Ilth of February, 19tS, he was arrested at Strasbourg, where he was de. tainedforfive months awaiting his trial. At the end of that time he was taken to Leipzic, where he was tried, found guilty, and sen tenced to sir years' hard labor. Soon after. wards he was removed to a prison at Halle on-Saale. 'or four years, according to his story, he was not allowed to see or speak to anyone, so that his reason seemed to be im. paired, and he was remved, first to a mad house at Berlin, then to another at Stephana. feld. He was finally liberated on the 17th of this month. At the prison of Halle, Klein occupied a cellabout twelve cubio metres in size, with one small window in it ; and his bed was a pla...
Burning Ceal Dust [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 2 March 1894
Burning CGal Dust The enormous amount of fuel necessary to drive a large steamship makes owners willing to experiment with any economical e?pedient that may be introduced to them. Coaldust is now being tried by the two well-known German lines, the Nforth German Lloyd and the Ham burg-American, whose steamers buta on an average from 230 to 300 tons per day. Coal dust is what may be almost called a waste pro duct. Many schemes for utilising it have been tried, but none of them have proved brilliantly euccessful. In the present case it is proposed to inject the dst into the furnace through a nozzle, as though it were ga or petroleum, and if iu this form it will produce as much beet as the more solid forms of coal, a great end will he gained.

A Parliamentary Trip to- t.e Comet. [B oUR SPECIAL CORRESPOyDoNTr. IT Is just about.three months since the Board Room of the Lands Department, in Mel bourne, was crowded one afternoon by the men, women, and children of the Comet Creek Sawmills. They were there received by Mr. McIntyre, the popular Minister of Lands, who listened to all they had to say to him in a very sympathetic manner and promised to assist them as far as it lay with. in his power to do so. The ' Cometers" made a most favorable impression on the Minister, and so much did he admire the stalwart figures of the men, the bu.om looks of the women, and the healthy, happy appearance of the children, that he accepted, with genuine pleasure, an invitation conveyed through Mr. McKenzie, M.L.A., to visit them on Friday last.

Irrigating [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Irrigating The "science" oa irrigation is to apply no more water than the soil will hold in suspension. The water dissolves the plant food in the soil, and is taken up by the roots. Directly the ter begins to see er run away from the soil, it carries with it allof the fertilisine material or plant food contained in it, and this is direct lose. if water is continuously running over sand amongst the soil, the laud will quickly be im poverghed, and probably the roots of the plants will also be injured. After trees have borne their fruit, there is no necessity to apply more water than is sufficient to keep them alive. The trees require a season of rest from growing, so that the wooed may ripen, or become hard. BIe continually forcing on growth by means? water the trees will become week and pro. maturely aged. Water is a good thing, but too much of a good thing becomes an evil. The hardest lesson for a young irrigator to learns when to leave off applying water. After gating and directly ...
GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
GENERAL EXTRACTS. Some excellent Gladstone stories find their way into thie London correspondence of the "Sheffield Independent," One of these illustrates Mr Gladetoneh univer sal knowledge. Two gentlemen, invited as guests at a table where Air Gladstone was expected, made a wager that they would start a conversation on a subject about which even Mr Gladstone would know nothing. To accomplish this end they" read up" an ancient magazine article on some unfamiliar subject con. nected with Chinese manufactures, When the favorable opportunity came the topio was started, and the two conspirators watched with amusement the growing in terest in the subject which Mr Glad stone's face betrayed. Finally he joined in the conversation, and their amnusement was turned into gnashing of teeth-to speak figuratively-when AMr Gladstone said, "Ah, gentlemen, I perceive you have been reading an article I wrote in the - Magazine some thirty or forty years ago." An interesting story is being told about a...
Facts About England. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Facts About England. When the population of England was 19,257,000 in 1889, there were 2,559 persons undergoing penal servitude; now, with a population of 27,830,179, the number is only 947. In 1878 the entire number of prisoners in our gaols was 20,833; the entire number at the same date last year was 12,663, though the population had increased by 6,000,000. Pauperism is also deolining. In 1870, 1,079,391 persons were in receipt of relief; in 1891, with an addition of more than 7,000,000 inhabitants, there were only 774,905. The upshot of these figures without pressing them too much-seems surely to be that the "cosmic process" in our own little corner of the universe is not doing so badly.-Smr EnwiN ABSOl.D.
French Poets. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
French Poets. Although one hears so much of young French poets nowadays, in reaflty there do not appear to be any. M. Camille Doucet, the Perpetual Secretary of the Academy of Sciences, has (reports a London paper) had to make the mortify ing announcement that no poem worthy of the name was sent in on "Africa opened up," which was the subject selected for this year's competition for the Prize for Poetry granted by the State. The prize, therefore, amountine to be tween one and two hundred pounds sterling, will not be awarded. The "young" poets are no longer young, a fact amusingly satarised by Pailleron in the comedy of "Le Minde oi lon s'ennuie," where everybody is on the tin toe of expectation to see a young poet of great promise, who, when he appears, turns out to have grey whiskers and a bald head. To do them justice, the poets referred to have at length publicly recognised the truth as regards them selves. In one of their favorite organs, where poems in the wildest metres, and ....
The Hippometer. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
The Hippometer. The hippometer is the outcome of a French. man's ingenuity. It works on very much the same principle as a pedometer, and will measure the distance a horse travels with wonderful exactitude. The hippometer has a olock movement for time and a hammer at one end of a lever to vibrate in unison with the horse's movements. The instrument firset measures the time which elapses between the successive beats of the hoofs on the ground, and secoondly, the length of the horse's etrifes. As these are variable, the hippo. meterie rather a complicated piece of mecha. nism, but it has proved wonderfully correct.
POPULAR SCIENCE Fasting Shellfish. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE Fasting Shellfish. The long spells of fasting which some of the land shell-fish can endure is well known. The case of the Helix desertorum, which lived for close on four years in a case in the British Museum. is a stock illustration of low-life vitality in every text book. Dr Stearns, of the Smithsonian Institution, publishes two instances of long abstinence from nutriment still more remarkable. One isof a specimen of Helix eastohii-really a variety of H. areolata-from Cerraos Island, off the coast of Lower California, which, on being placed in a box of moist earth, pro. traded its body from the shell and commenced moving about, seemingly not much the worse for its Fix years' imprisonment in the natura. list's cabinet. The same zoologist tells of some speceimens of Bnlimns pallidior of the Bouthern district, which were as vigorous as ever after being boxed up for two years, two months and sixteen days, though to all ap. pearance they might have lived for double or tr...
