Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892

Subjects for Thoughts Ir friendship is to rob me of my eyes, if it is to darken the day, I will have none of it. It ehould be expansive and inconceivably liberalizing in its effects. True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not de. pend on darkness and ignorance. Norneao hinders the constant agreement of people who live together, but vanity and selfishness. Let the spirt of humility and benevolence prevail, and discord and dies. greement will be banished from the house. hold. You most desire to improve your heart, and so become good. You musidesire to im. prove your head, and so become well in. formed. But you most desire first to become good. That is the first and great end of life. How easy is the thought, in eertain moods, of the loveliest, most unselfish devotion I How bard is the doing of the thought, in the face of a thousand unlovely diffi culties.

A Recipe for Perpetual Youth. For the complexion-it heightens color. emooths wrinkles. For the eyes-it brightens and causes them to shine with a brilliant lustre. For the voice-it softens from all harshness, and imparts a clear, pleasant, ring. like the notes of attuned belle. Is keeps away gray hairs. It straightens the overburdened back, gives elasticity so the step, and a buoyancy to every motion. Also for indiesation, nervousness, etcetera, the best remedy is contentment. It is a lesson to be learned, contentment. How many live entirely in the thought of Sto-mpprrow, ever the same, "To morrow it will be more pleasant; there will be more sunshine to morrow;" when, as they eppsk. the sun is shining brightly for them, only the eyes are looking beyond to something still better. " Whatever is, is best," some philosopher has said: ay, whatever is, ii happiness, woula we but stop to realize it.

Internatiolnal Cricket. ENGLAND V. AUSTRALIA. THE FINISII OF A GREAT 1MATCII As extraordinary match in every way was that which terminated on the Mel bourne Cricket-ground on Wednesday between Combined Australia and Lord Sheffield's team. The even conditions under which it was played. the great attendances, and the public interest in the game, all went to make it one of the most remarkable played on any cricket-field. The weather yesterday was as delightful as on the first day, and the wicket, although worn, looked as though it would last another four days unler favorable circumstances. With the prospect of a speedy termina tion, the attendance was not so large as it would have been under other circum stances.
