AGRICULTURAL COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893

AGRICULTURAL CRfL.t!Mit In his new book, "Thel'oints of the Ifc'er," Captain ]layes remarks that care:ul selectrio in breeding, good feeding and healthy eona.tions of life have a great influence in te?ditsg to in crease the size not only of individuaae, but aeso of breeds, in which cane the taodard of use ful height will naturally become raised. Thus. ie says, the average English horse is at thl present dayprobably Gic, taller than he was _0i veara ago. From his own observation he is inclined to think that horses in England have increased about liet in height during the List thirty yearn. HIe remarks that the futilamental differenre between animals of speed and these of strength is that the former have camltparas tirely log legs, and that the latier Lace com. parstively abhort ones.

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893

" GENERAL EXTRACTS. in In a short time. a Paris correspondent nl writes, there will probably not be a restaurant or cafe on the old Boule vards. Between the competition of the cambling clubs and the brasseries or beer saloons and their own conservative tariffs they woere b.lund to disappear. A cup of coffee at a cafe was 30 centimes. It is 30 centimes at a beer saloon. A meal at Brebant's was really expensive ; the " Bouillon"' therefore crowded it out. Tortoni's used to be the centre of the fashionable world. but the transfer of power to the Chamber of Deputies, the growth of Paris west of the Champs Elysees, and the rise of the many aristo cratic and other clubs where the menu is luxurious and cheap, have left that famous house stranded. Its last ray of prosperity was due three years ago to the patronage of the grand dukes and duchesses who then flocked to Paris and patronised it. But they have since learned to go to other places, and after languishing visibly it is about to close...

AT THE FISHING VILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 September 1893

AT THE FISHING VILLAGE. -No more patent signs of the dull times which have prevailed in Melbourne for the last few months can be seen than are evidenced in a glance at the wharves and piers on either side of Hobson's Bay. Time was, and not so long aeo, when it was hardly possible from any point in Port Melblorne to get a clear view over to Williamstown o?'ing to the mass of shipping which lay anchored in the Bay. All the piers at both ports used to be fully occupied, and a dozen or more big full-rigged shi.s and barques lay out in the fairway awaiting their turn for a berth. Now, as'that time-honored old craft, the Gem. pants and snorts on her passsaeO to Williamstown, leaving a snowy wake astern, Captain Watson might take his ease below, so far as any precautions are necessary against collision. Not a vessel lies between him and the fishing village over the water; and save for a few old barges looking like decomposed derelicts, there is nothiing afloat on the broad expanse of water...

Saving secured himself anainst the poeaibil. 1ty of sodden interruption, ha took off his coat with a careful deliberate movement, and then drtw from its outer breast pocket a waterproof hath-bag, whence he extracted a dripping Sponge.

Russia's Advance in Central Asia. The Vienna correspondent of the ' Daily Chronicle" has received a communication from a well-known Central Asian explorer who is now travelling in the Pamirs, and who, he says, is an excellent and impartial observer, without parti pris on the side either of Russia or of England. In his communication, which is dated Novo 3larghelan, 20th June, the ex plorer sayc, all subterlage on the l'.mir question is abandoned by lRussa. She believes that she can fo0llw out her plans in the Pamirs, without reckoning with Eng land and that Great Britain will have nothing to do but recognise the fait accompli. Rusia argues that the Hindoo Koosh is not the re cognised frontier of Anglo-India, and that it is impoesible for the Engaish to pass over the Hiniodo ]oosh. The latest development of Russian policy, which has been elabhratedl at Tashkend, consists in leaving the Hindoo Koosh out of the question for the present, and in taking the Russian frontier lice follow the...

A Cool Waiter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893

A Cool Waiter. Abont the service in the hotels. I am not a carper, or a snarler, or a scoffer in a foreign country. I try always to find out how the people of the country act under certain conditions, and I act, as much as possible, like them. But I have never yet been able to ascertain what the people in the country do when they ring the bell. I be lieve theynever do ring the bell, because, if the foreigner ventures to press that knob, noihing happens. At the Kenmore Hotel, Albany, they not only answer the bell, but they have a plate or dial face which tells what you want. But this is a luxury quite exceptional. Now, at a certain place, which must be nameless, I very im prudently rang the bell. No one took any notice. I then went into my companio room, and begged him to ring his bell. No one came. I then rang mine again; he rang his again; and so on one after the other, for half an hour. Nothing happened. We then rang together. We varied . the form and manner of our ringing. We ran...
