A faror which is rolling in its surface s.-eelis perfectly adapted to sheep raising,. Such land needs grass on the hill-stops to keep it from washin'g, and sheep need hill-tops an l iv-et, short grass.

The fladctedle 'ee: ce1tll Shleep. The black-?r?l si e, kno ? o n as the lheath breed a:re uit; stiot" frn other sheep Of the Ilritish Isl:de. '":hey are smaller than the other ltrec~ t. xc.pt the Welsh, the Zet. land. and the hft-weotie:! variety which re. sembled it in fEn. Somnu of its characteristics have led to coiretures that the black-faced 'ieaths were Eastlern origin, as they are .tot unlike thl'ersian in confnormation and general appenurce but this theory is with out confirnitin. The heath sheep are long and muscular;both males and females are horned, the hoes of the male being large and twisted spirall. while those of the female are always nmordelicate, and less pronounced, sometimes eviwlholly wanting. Their faces and legs are tack, or tmttledthrown, and this color is fond inl their fleeces. They are remarkably haIly, feeding on any attainable pasturage, ni are not restless like other mountain brees. At four year year eath wcthers weigh on an average lifteen pltunds to t...

In answer to the ustiil question of the iaso ehate: " Gentlenen,--lTow do you firnd the pri soner at the lar ? Guilty or not guilty ?" The foreman answered in a clear uand dis tinct voi e . " Guilty !" A suppressed m nurmur floated round the court-roon as the fatal word was spolten,and the lawyer tunled to his eoump.anion, expect ing she would faint: but she was .-till looking fixedly at the, jury, withbher face-if lossible -a shade p:ler and more drawn.

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1892. Broken Hill Strike. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 14 October 1892
Ihc ~r adford C ot,~ier, AsD REenv CRetF.I TIeIS. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1892. 13rokein H!ill Strike. w\V may be excused if to-day reference is again made to the Broken Hill troubles, for the simple reason that developments have taken place since last week which mayv exercise considerable inlluence on future strikes. A section of the strikers appear to have saen that the present struggle, if prolonged, can only end in their discomfiture. They have also had proof that their leaders are unable to obtain for them tihe terms for the obtain ment of which they were ordered to throw down their tools. And they are daily witnesses that their places are being filled by men imported from other places. They have a shrewd guess, also, that the majority of those who have ar rived at Broken Hili have gone there to stay. This means absolute loss of a livelihood to a corresponding number of tnea who have electe.i to remain out on strike until their places have been filled up. Se...

CHAPTER IX. THE TRIAL. Two days afterwards Blackburn was taken before thvisiting police magistrate on the :harge of murder. lie hadl not given the Ziwyer any further infornmatioin, as he could hlink of no more to give, and the police had ;lo same witnesses as before, and they gave ilntilar evidence. The half-tipsy digger, as he called himself, oas scarcely in at fit state to appear, mand he merrowly escaped being committed for con sempt. lie was closely cross-examined by Wilberfor:e.

Fishing. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 14 October 1892
A youth beside the water sits, The noonday sun is warmly beaming; HIs nose and neck are turkey red. Ills eye with raidiant hope is gleaming, 11, watches close the bobbing cork Advance upon the tiny billows; A jerk, a swish. and high abhave He lands a sucker in the willows. That's fishing. A fair maid trips the tennis court, A dozen eyes admire her going; Her black and yellow blazer burns A hIle right through the sunset'sglon'ing. She drive the ball across the net, And int.o hearts consumed with wishing, She drives a dart from Cupid's bow: She'll land a sucker, too. She's fiishing. That's fishing. My little wife beside me stands, And steals a dimpled arm around me; A kiss upon my lips-that's bait Some information to astound me. Hler bnnet is quite of style, lier summer wrap quite past the using; That lovely one-so cheap at Draown's Is just the one she would be choosing. That's fishing. So whether the game be fish or men, Tihe bait be kisses, worms, or blushes The place at home, by su...
Tallarook Mems. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 14 October 1892
'albooli OOK teIs. A slight improvement has been affected on tlhe central platform at local railway station, by transforming one of the ladies waiting rooms into a general waiting room. It is dillicult to sur.ni-e what the idea was in constructing two of the former in the first instance. There is a de:termined riv. Iry between the supporters of the Sunday Creek and the Sugariuaf creek creantm:ties. Each side appears to think the mill. the cream and the machinery are better in its own locality, although io tangible reasons are ,advanced. So long as the rivalry is of a friendly character it can only do good. A ticket oflice is badly require d on the central platform at the sia icn.

K. i McKenzie, M.b.A. for Anglesey, tic livered the following criticism :-" Sir, I have observed during this debate that when ansy honoralle member rises front the Ministerial side of the chambhr he prefaces his remarks with a statement that we are wasting timne, but that those honorable members speak muuch longer thi'u honorable memobers on the opposition side. Whether the debate is as waste of time or not is a matter of opinion. There is good reason for ellieving that it will not he a waste of time. I may say, for myself, that when the action of tihe Government uponl this question was disclosed I was taken campletely hy surprise. I had good reason to be surprised, because I hold that what ever may ,be said as to th-re being no underlying intention disclosed in the Premier's speech at Casterton to im pose the increased duties, tlhe country did not detect :any ...
