The Late Major Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
The Late Major Wilson. An old schoolfellow of Major Wilson, contributing to the London paper his recollections of that officer, whofell under the assegais of the Matabele in South Africa, writes thus:--"It is strange to have to remark that a wonderful fatality seemsto have attached itself tohis family. All the members that have yet died nave been taken away by accident or violence. Only a week or two ago his aged mother, unconscious of her gallant son's peril or fate, suc cumbed to paralysis, The husbands of two of his sisters have fallen a prey to the dangers of the deep, ,,Two brothers were drowned on an expeditio?i in South Africa. There remains now the eldest son, Dr George Wilson, the medical officer for Mlid:.Varwickshire, himself a pioneer of sanitary science, and a genial lover of fox and horse and hound. It is pleasant to hope that the name of Wilson will be cut deep in the annals of : South Africa.
THE LADIES' COLUMN. The Angelic Husband. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. The Angelic Husband. There are husbands who are pretty, There are husbands who are witty, There are husbands who in public are as smiling as the morn; There are husbauns who are healthy, There are famous ones and wealthy, But the real, angelic husband, well-he's never yet been born. Some for strength of love are noted, Who are really so devoted, That whene'er their wires are absent they are lonesome and forlorn; Andwhilenow and then you'll find one Who's a fairly good and kind one, Yet the real, angelic hubsand-oh, he's never yet been born. So the woman who is mated To a man who may be rated 4A "pretty fair," should cherish him for ever anda day, For the real angelic creature, Perfect, quite, inevery feature He has never been dicovered, and he won't be. so they eay. -THoYos BuirET ALDtrCr.
BIG JACK AND CHARLIE WHITE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
BIG JACK AND CHARLIE WHITE, The day is in July, and the hour mid. afternoon. The i:caton is a frcntier town in the shadows ofgrimold mountains-a collection of ehantte, teant and dug-onts, all facing the one long end narrow streat, up and down which the mail coaches travel as they como and go. The typical frontier town as it was, but never will be again. The type of town thathas vanished with the herds of buffalo and the countless acres of unclaimed land. In the sixties and seventies the town came frst-law and ordernext. In the eighties law and order began to take the place of the gun and the terror. Inthe sixties men who refused to drink with a stranger were shot dead and the bartender dragged the corpse clear of the door. In those days each town had i's terror, and it was a matter of pride with him to see his victims buried and headboards erected with his tally-marks. In the eighties the terrors disappeared from eight, and the now boys held up the town at intervals. Today both terr...
A Happy Community. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
A Happy Community. --P -The theories of certain social reformers are to be seen in actual working in the little community of Klingenberg-on-the Main, -in Germany. Iu the neighbor hood of this torn (says the "Daily News") are valuable pits of fireproof clay, which the authorities in days gone by were far-sighted enough to retain as public property, instead of allowing them to be owned by individuals. They are worked by the municipality for the publicbenefit. The result is thatKlin Fenbergis one of the happiest places in Europe. Not only do the profits on the day suffice to cover all local and Imperial taxation, but there is a considerable surplus, the bulk of which is divided amongst the inhabitants. In addition, a present of fifteen marks is made this year to every young man who is begin ning his military service. It is sad but true that the man who once becomes deaf seldom enjoys a happy hear after. Mr M'Bride: " They say that poor Wine biddle is dying by inches." MraeM'Bride(with ...
THE POWDER MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
THE POWDER MINE. At five o'clock in the evening of the 2let of March, 1S14, the English camp before the walls of Rocqwas in a state of high excite ment. The town, a stronghold of Napoleon, lay on the French cost not far above the mouth of the Gironde. It was prbtected on two sides by the nature of the ground and at the rear was open to the sea. In front stood a- massive bastion, which for ten days had bads defiance to the artillery of the English; but the sappers had been working day and night, and at last the tunnel of their mine had reached the bas tion,andhad brokenunexpectedly into a cellar underneathit. This cellar,belongingtoahouse which stood against the wall inside the town, was entered from the house above by a flight of spiral steps: cc that the miners found themselves, to their dismay, open to discovery at any moment by the in mates of the house. They were compel led to trust to speed and silence to ac complish their design without disturbance; and so far all was well. A ...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Er" Joni Prearacrsar. I used to be told when a youngster that 'there was no such thing as a royal road to leariing; that princes had to study if they wanted to get knowledge, and that, on s-ome occasions they got wallopped if they -didn't. I have readin history-books that, as a rule, a " whipping boy " was kept in -most royal nurseries, who got flogged when His Royal Highness went wrong, but that there were frequently con acientious tutors, who insisted on their princely charges taking their own gruel, and prettyhandsomely ,too. But, if there be no rayal road, there is in this country what one might call a ministerial road, i.e., a path to knowledge especially laid down for Ministers of the Crown. An ordinary member of parliament is supposed to know a little on many subjects. Sometimes more and some times less. His constituents are very confiding in this respect. They take a lot for granted. In the case of a Minister of the Crown it is different ; no sooner does he become possessed ...
North-East and South. NOTES ON LOCAL AND GENERAL AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
oQrth-Eas$ end South. NOTES ON LOCAL AND GENERAL ' AFFAIRS. (B, W gINNOW.) IT IS mPst gratifying that the. Kilmors Hospital Jumble. Fair and Concert were sosuccfssful, and that Broadford and the snrrqunding district were not backward in practically showing their sympathy for'the. sick. A jumble fair is a much better. idea than one of the. aucienj ha-aars, with it. raffes, &c., in bwhis a "yong lady generally gets a pipe. and ' bachelor a cradle." Op Easter. Monday I trust that a sub. stantial addition to the funds will be made at Kilmore, and the, hospital will, as the result of the whqle of the efforts made, gain the funds it so. greatly requires. Hospitals are of the creatn..t iimportance not only from a that of science. Medical science is yearly inpreasiyg. When Charles the Second was o0 l is death bed, in 1685, Macauley tells us, that hot irons were applied to his head, and a loathsome volatile salt, extracted from human skulls, forced into his mouth. One of the prescrip...

I want you and Kitty to sit to me for two figures in it. Kitty's is just the face I want for it-her round apple cheek and Rib stone pippin coloring will be exactly the right contrast to the apple blossom tints in the cen tral figure.-And you," he said reflectively, studying her face and figure in a manner that would have been cruelly embarrassing to vanity or self consciousness, but which Sage bore without flinching orgaining any color, in her smooth, pale cheek-a calmness to which I would draw the attention of those readers who still suspect a flirtation to lie concealed under the fr...

Barn Made of Baled Straw. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
Barn Made of Baled Straw. L--o-- A traveller in Arkansaa foune d that the principal objeet of interest in the vicinity of Garden City was the Government experimn.ital forage farmT, which is located some two miaes from the buasiness portion of the town. It com prises 210 acres-one tract of eighty acres and one of 130 acres. The improvements on the eighty-acre tract consist of a neat ane sun etantial one-story frame house of six rooms, a frame barn, a groanaryl, a tool.house, and a straw barn. On the 160acre tract a straw barn is being constructed. Bloth tracts are fenced. On one sideof the eighty.acre tract are rows of cottonwoods, while about the other are two or three rows of black locust, all of which are growing finely. The straw borne mentioned are curiosities in their way. The first one was built on the eighty acre tract. Baled straw was used, each bale beingsaecurely fastened by wooden pins. Those bales form the sides and ends of the barn, it being covered with a good shingle ...

THEs pnual sports in connection with the abovr clab took place on Wednesday. in Mr. Ahparn's prounds, Sugarloaf Creel, when there was a very good attendance, including visitors frorp Broadford, Kilmore, Glenaropa, and other places. The weather, no doubt, prevented many from ?ntutring out, as dur ing the morning a good many showers fell, and during the greater partos the day the sky was overcast and threateping, the atsos. pherep also being c!ose and pppressive.

Boiled Bones. The di'eetor refsefrom boiling.-down workb, where allthe fat is taken away, and the gela. tine, etc., is manufactured into "extract of meat" is still of considerable value as a manure for wheat-fields and for land that is deficient in otash. A sample of such refuse has recently en analysed by the Department of Agriculture in New South Wales, and is calculated to be worth £5 10, per toen. t contained:-Mois ture, 808; volatile and organic matter, 2924 (equal to nitrogen, 3'283; ammonia, &3086); aed, 2"86; calclum, phosphate, 61901 (contain. tg phosphoric acid, 237); other lime as carbonate, 642. There are boilIug.down works on the Darling, and as lenmark is within easy reach, as well as all place. lower down the Murray, it will be well worth the trouble of farmers to look out for a cheap manure, if it can be delivered to them anys where below £5 10s.

The Antiquated Quadrille. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 March 1894
The Antiquated Quadrille. The latest news from Berlin is that the Emperor-Wiiliam is bent on changing the character of the dances in good society. He is tired of quadrilles ; they are too antiquated and too monotonous. Of course skirt dancing is out of the questionat the Courtof theHohenzollerns, and the puzzle is what to substitute for the dreary quadrilles. The Em peror (according to the " Westmizster Gazette") has had an idea-lance gavottes. He kept it a secret for some time, and then he sent to the Opera House. The ballet-master came. There was a consultation, and the Count Hoch. berg, assisting thereat, gave both the benefit of his own experience and advice. The result was that the following day "fourcouples of choregraphic artists" arrived from the Opera House and danced before the Emperor and the Court. The dance was a complete success, and in a very short time the "dreary and antis quated quadrille" will disappear from the programme of Court halls.
