It will .be remem- bered that ;those two peraons most em- phatically refused to allow pressmen down the Junction at a time when all the share- holders were thirsting for legitimate in- formation concerning the lode at the three hundred f eet l«vcl in that property.

The Skating Rink. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 5 April 1889
The Skating Rink. Á snffiTrAK programme to that presented by Professor Aginton, the champion all- round roller-skater, attracted a large attendance at the Crystal Bink last evening. As: on his first performance so last night all his movements were marked by^jrace-excepting, of coarse, in that part of the entertainment where the Professor assumes the character of an unfortunate New York dude learning to skate. To night a daring feat wUl be accomplished, viz., the descent by means of skates down an inclined plank, but a few inches in width, and sloping from the roof at one end pf the building to the floor at the other. To witness this it is certain a very large attendance will pay their nimble shillings. Messrs. Isaac and One have now com- pleted the valuation of the whole of the municipality.

For example, yesterday . a weÛ-knb wn medica^ gentleman prescribed a small quantity of brandy, and sent to one of the chief hotels of the town for the supply, instructing , that it , should be delivered at his surgery. Noticing some- thing a trifle peculiar, he mixed a quantity: with-some pure rain , water, with , the result that the...
