Yet, so fond of paradoxes is fate, that this man, who had eschewed Love, made his bread and butter by serving him. But, like all who wait on Love with intcrested motives, he received nothing but fdross for his pains. Yet one day it hlappened that his fickle master had placed before his eWes those illuninating glasses which turn the eommonu sky into heaven, which convert life into a lylie,allnd woman into lte creature of ?perfu me and melody and light. But the next day, as one may see, these glasses were taken off again, and Clymer Ames haind never lookel through them since. Yet every day front eight in the morning till live in the afternoon this tnma, who could have killed Eros for his perfidious conduct, was obliged to toil in his behalf. He was, in short, the clerk who issued the marr...

Asiatic Cholera. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 30 September 1892

AsIzI"Cholera. '" « AN interesting report on Asiatic cholera, and the measures requiring attention in anticipation of its introduction into Vic toria, has been prepared by Dr. Gresswell for the information of the members of the Board of Public Health. The report states that cholera has prevailed for cen turies past in India, and has extended in widespread epidemics over China, Persia, Europe and America. In 1826it appeared in Bengal and traversed the intermediate countries, slaying in its course more than Soo,ooo persons in Germany alone, and reached England in 1831-32. It became epidemic again in India in 1S40-41, entered Europe again in IS47, and prevailed in England in 1848-49. A third time it reached Eng land from India in 1833 54, and again in 1t63.66.

The shareholders may feel jstly proud in the young man as Mr. Grifliths, for hls whole attention is riretted on his busi ness from the first thing in the morning until everything is finished as clean as a new pin. It is pleasing to notice the busy appearance the creamery has effec ted in the locality-the carts running to and fro with their gleaming tinware shining in the morning sunhght. lie sides tile healthful morning exercise it creates, it brings the farmers together. and gives them an opportunity of dis cus--ngt matters whi.:h they would have no means of doinmg otherwise, and which is a drain back to farmers in general.

AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3o, 1892. Concession not Defeat. THE country has reason to be thinkful for the measure of success that re wardedq the efforts of members last weekjto lift the incubus that an unwise Government attemupted to fasten upon the'·otntry. The commercial depres sion that already exists, and for which the present Government is not repon sible, was already bad enough, without their adding to its intensity by ill-ad vised and pernicious Stamp Duties. Nevertheless, there is only too much reason to fear that a majority of the House would have passed the Bill had not its few opponents been backed by an almost united press. It was this wide-spread exposure of the bad effects the proposed duties would produce that converted the waverers, and caused the country constituencies to bring pressure to bear upon other imembers, who, without such gentle persuasion were in danger of being led astray. All is well, however, that ends well, and t...

The supply is steadily increasing at the rate of about ten gallons per day, but lain sorry to say that a wellto do supplier has descended on two occasions to diluting his milk, by adding to it about two-and-a-half gallons of water. The manager has for this in fringment of the rules, deducted a penny a gallon from all the watered milk sup plied. A silo is being constructed for Mr. Jas. Evans, of Spring Valley, who intends putting several acres into ensilage this season.

Butter-making. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 30 September 1892

Blutter-nmluiiig. FROM the newly issued pamphlet on " The Art of lutter-making," by Dr. Webb and Mrs. Moul, we give the fol. lowing extract : Old method.-The old-fashioned way of making butter is to churn it into a lump, but by this means a large quantity of buttermilk is gathered in the butter, contrary to the first requisite in butter making. which is that we should have it as free as possible from casein or cheesy matter. In the process of churning, the fat globules are brought vito close contact by the concussion and unite altogether to form small grains, continually increasing in size as the churning proceeds. Now, the chief object is to get away the fat without having any casein with it, but by churning the butter into a lump a large quantity of butter milk and casein is included. The watery part may be worked out but not the casein : and if the cream has been in any way tainted the taint will remain in tho butter instead of in the butter milk. Nor does the mischief rest here,...
