WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
WIT AND HUMOUR. Doctor (as the night-bell rings) : " Well ? Caller : "Naw : sick!" Extingulshing a lamp is like a small supper-it is a light blow out. A patch on a boy's trousers is something new under the son. " Can't youwait upon me " said the lm patient customer. "Two pounds of liver ; I'm in a hurry." "Sorry," safd the butcher; "but there are two or three ahead of you. Surely you would not have your liver out of order." " No, 1 don't know much about the poetry of motion," said the literaryeditor; '' but," tosinmg the verses into the waste-basket, " I can give you an illustration of the motion of poetry." "I don't see how your medicines can be much goad, doctor." "Why, not, Freddy P "They don't taste nearly so bad as Dr Brown's used to."

One-horse Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
One-horse Farmers. Nearly every man thinks he is as good-and sometimesa lot better-farmer as any other in the district, and perhaps they are all betterthan each other, but what is the use of all this. In dividually the farmers eannot progress. They must work together, and thus they can drive their business where now they are driven. Dairying cannot be carried pn now without co operation, because, for export very large quan tities of butter, cheese, hron, etc., all of one uniform good quality mustba provided. It all farmerse would unite, they could Import ship loads of manure and get them at less than half theprices they have to pay now'. Dy combining they could get great reductions on coet of trans port of their produce to the markets of the world; they could get machinery, bags, store very much cheaper. In every line they could get higher prices for their produce, lower rates for transport, and obtain goods, etc., very much cheaper. As it is, they lose money both ways.
BROADFORD v. WANDONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
BBOADFORD v. WANDONG. The Broadford cricketers journeyed down to Wandong to play the knights of the willow of that place a game on Saturday, and it proved to be an enjoyable day's out. ing. Several of the Broadford Cup eleven were absent, which gave the recruits an op. portunity of having a game. There being a surplus of players on both sides it was agreed by the captains (Begg and Munro) to play 13 men a side. The visiting captain having won the toss, decided to bat, and sent in Trezise and J. Synon, who, for a time scored well, but Horne at last found a weak spot in Synon's defence, and he was forced to retire with a quickly-made 14 opposite his name. Trezise played a sterlinginnings for 18, and Bidstrup made 13, none of the ether batsman reaching double figures, the innings eventually closing for 74 runs. At a few minutes past four Broadford took the field, Wandong sending in S. Iorne and Skiels as their first represen. tatives, the former being almost immediately bowled by Agg, ...
Mares in Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Mares in Milk. S -o Mires giving suck require to be more care fllyhandled than dry ones. Sometimes in the e of work during harvest the nursing mare is ptto be overheated, which very frequently gves the animal a chill on standing, and fever bseess and a lose of milk and condition is the eOulegenee, if nothing more serionus. Igno. rantdrive are inclined to handle horses no neeressaily rough at all times, and perhape the milking mare comes In formore than her fair share of this roughness when she shows impatience at detention from her foal. Harsh words, harsh tones, and the application of the whi excitek the nervous systems of all animals and acts detrimentallyon the health, but on the mare in milk it acts the worst of all, because she quickly begins to lose condition, with a cnseequent decrease in milk.

Barb-wire Fences. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Barb-wire Fences. --_ These have been an invention of great im portance to farmers. A lotof money has been expended in oonstructing them, and they hav saved thousands to farmers in providing cheap and efficient barriers between their grain and cattle fields, But a serious objection has arison st the same time, in the wounds which the lacerating barbs inflict on the lanimats which carelessly dash egainst them. Their danger aries directly from their value. Wires without barbe would not inflict any wounds, and they would not retard strong and furious animals. Barb fences ma be constructed so as to avoid the danger of accidente, and at the same time retain their efficiency. Fig. I represents the most dangerous form of the fence, consisting of several wires sretched from post to post and nothing 1ie visible from the level of the ground upwards. Animale, not seeing so slender an object, would bein daner, whenrunning, o dahio? directly against the sh?rp points with snfficient force to tear...
Laying Out an Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Laying Out an Orchard. ---o-- Three objects should be considered in lb ng out the orchard; symmetry of appec:arco; economy of space and facility for future c.:re. In California, where millions of tree ;.re lanted annually, various methods are uic,:. Many are now planting in what is known us the triangular or alternate system. This metlhod gives more trees to the acre than the r';.re system, and in case of apple trees, every ceter row can be planted to peaches. As the life of the peach tree is short, several crops of f: it aay be gathered before any serious damage is done to the appletrees, and efore crowding the peach trees can be removed. In laying cot an orchard to be planted in thie manner (writ?o I. Tr JNGLE FO ODCUlAlD PLAIIX.G. H.

Grandmother Brown. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Grandmother Brown. Dear Grandmother Brown Lived in Cranberrytown, And a kindly old woman was she; There was no one so bad, Either lassie or lad, But some good in the same she could see. One June Afternoon Mistress Polly Muldoon Ran in for that moment that ends In an hour or more, And did naught but talk o'er The short-comnigs of neighbors and friends. But in vain did she scold About young folks and old, Only patient excuses she heard Till at last she cried out, "You would speak, I've no doubt, For old Satan himself a good word." Then said Grandmother Brown, Of Cranberrytown, " ell, whatever his failin's may be. I don't think we could find Many people who mind Their own buliness as closely as he." MaunarT Eraon.
Stub Ends of Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Stub Ends of Thought. -O0 Love comne in unbidden, and, as with most unbidden guests, he is slow to go. Wealth is a thing of beauty, but not necessarily a joy for over. The flhes that are on society are mostly butterflies. Old agois a burden which hardly pays car riage. Most people prefer to loverather than to be loved. Don't trust the man who can't ask a loan before witnessesses. Cupid would be put ins lunatic asylum if an unprejudicd jury couldbe found. Soelfoonceited people are always first to take a slight and always last to forget it. " Press."
Collision With an Iceberg. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Collision With an Iceberg. The San Joaquin, a sailing vessel, while going from Yokohama to New York, on 2nd September, at eight o'clock at night, crashed into an ioeberg. The berg appeared like a wall of mist, and the first intima. tion the crew had of the pror'mity of the leviathan mass was their being thrown off their feet by the contact. Tons of ice came down like an avalanche on the vessel's deck. Second officer Gothrie and a seaman who were nearwere almostburied in the fali but managed to get aft. In fact, all of the crew made for that part of the ship, thinking that their vessel would every moment be simply buried by theice. The man at the wheel deserted his poet, but the Captain's sister, Miss Larrabee, who was on board, bravely took thehelm. and kept the ship steady. It was found that the ship was not sinking. but, on the contrary, was being held up by the ice. The San Jcsquin had run on a reef of ice and was really stranded. She was keptin that state for over an hour, and i...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. Ltve's Tender Signs. You say I am happy Pray how can you tell The hea:t of a maid Ieasdeeoasea well She often will smile With a heart auhe below, And when meaning "Yes," She will likely say "No." Ab, yee, my one darling, Some maidens, I own, Their beartsecrete i kep In a casket of stone. Dut when some fond swain A eharer would be, If looked on with favor, Love tenders the key. A suitor who loves, As I dear, love you, Can wait for an answer From lips that are true. Your gentle blue eyes That look into mine, Each day tell the story My heart would divine. I gave you a white rose One morning at dawn; I found its leaves Ecattered Upon the green lawn. I gave you a red rose; Yon blushed at the sight; And 'mong your soft tresses Isaw it that night. Yes, love bath a language As sweet as the birde; So tender and simple, Like songs withont words. I'll trust you, my darling, For bia? and caress, I'll watch and I'll wait For the confident " Yes." -Mors. A. A. KDE.
Active Horses Best. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Active Horses Best, Farmers' horses should be light and quick, not slow and heavy like el?phants. They should be kept well cleaned, well fed, beded in clean whitewashed stables, so as to be always ready and fit for work. Very big hborses may look fine and make a great ehow, but they aretoo alow for these times of steam and electricity, and beeides that, they eat too much for the work they give in return.
A Plea for Cremation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
A Plea for Cremation. RIeferring to the cremation of Sir S. Baker, the London "Daily Telegraph" sys in hundredsof instances the dead ill the living, the air of localities bordering ucon cemeteries is known to be unwholesome. Springs of water are poisoned by them, and by too liberal an observance of the inevitable law of earth to earth, it is unquestionable that Christian com munities co on from year to year violating the plainrulcsofsanitatiou. On the other hand, leaving aside for a moment collateral points, nothing can be more decorous, rational, or eanitery that the committal of the body to lire. It is the breat purifier, and leaves behind it nothing bue a small modicumn of indestructible material. the true "ashes of the departed." What are the objections which militate against the great sanitary reform recommended to ns by such names as those of the Duke of Bedford, Mr Linglakoe (the historian). Baron Hud dleston, and many others, the latest being Sir Samuel Baker? Those which de...
POPULAR SCIENCE. Grey Hair [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Grey Hair IIundreds of queer theores have been ad vauced to account for the phenomenon of hair turning grey in the genus home, the latest being this: Each heti is aholosetube filled with granules of pigment and air bubbles. As old age approaches the pigment diminishes both in quantity and quality, the airbubbles en larging and expanding to take the place formerly occupied by thecoltoring matter. The hair which is tilled with these bubbles turns white for the same reason that the crystals of white sugarappear of that color, the phenome non beiog doe to the refleclion and refraction of light. Why hair sometimes turns " white in a einglenight" has never been explained. True, amicroscopicexamination of such hairs shows that the granules of pigment have either been abolishedor forced out by the air bubbles, but exactly how or why is a mystery.
Chemical Molcules. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Chemical Molcules. The actual dimensions of chemical mole cules are such as to elude comprehension and confound the imagination. A oubic inch of oxygen at ordinary temperature and pressure contains so many molecules that a number equal to that of the entire population of the globe might escape every second, and it would require more than 6,000 years to empty that small space. Professor Tait oomputes that if a drop of water were mag nified to the size of the earth, the molecules of that drop would then be about the size of billiard balls. Chemistry has determined the relative weights of atoms and mole.ales, and usually expresses them in terms of the weight of the hydrogen atom. When an attempt is made to give these weights in terms of any of our ordinary measures, the numbers are so small that no idea is con. veyed which the mind can grasp.-" Coe mopolitan."
