Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 March 1894
Reedy Creek. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE trial crushing from the Shepherd's line of reef yielded very satisfactorily; 4 ozs. 2dwts. of smelted gold being crushed from one load of stone; but owing to the bad air below during this hot weather the men find it rather difficult to work to ad- vantage. I think when this reef is pro- perly opened up it will prove to be a valuable property. I hear from a reliable source that there is to be a ball held in the local hall on Easter Monday, and a cricket match will be played the same day against the Comet Mills on the Reedy Creek ground. Go in locals and make things lively for the Millites. Mr. Doherty, of Reedy Creek, has taken up the Beehive Reef, on the old Tonstal dyke. This reef formerly yielded payable gold, and by judicious prospect- ing, may continue to do the same at a deeper level than when formerly worked. Mr. W. Palmer, of Broadford, has lately taken up the alluvial ground at Nuggety Gully. There has been as high as a 13 oz. n...
Home Rule. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Home Rule. "1'ut the poker down, George," said the leader writer's leader. "It's a most extraordinary thing, but only a woman knows how to make up a fire properly." "I have noticed, my darling," murmured the eminent instructor of the publi, " that you usually make it nice and warm for me when I come home." She said nothing, but she looked tone, and her one third having quietly taken up his hat, went out into the fog, with the proud coneelousness that his sereed on "Anarchy in Italy" would make Europe cross-eyed ere the morrow's sun went down.

Medicine as Practised by the Lower Animals. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Medicine as Practised by the Lower Animals. It would seem as it man were eu:rounded by danger, seen and unseen, throughout his entire life. From the cradle to the grave it is a I struggle. In the vegetable kingdom also the same struggle for existence is seen. Every a flower bas its destroying insect, for every I shrub there is a worm, and for the ripening I watermelon the little colored boy lies in wait. l nt if disease threatens man on every hand, equally close at hand is the remedy with heal I ing power, and not only do the so.called inferior human races appear to recognise this, but even I dumb animals, and it would seem as if the latter, in an empirical way, of course, practised 5 medicine. Animals instinctively choose such food as is best suited to them, and to a certain extent the human race also shows this instinct, and medical men are sometimes at fault in not I paying suflicient respect to the likes and dis likes of their patients. Women, as a rule, are more often hungry th...
Plants Under Glass. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Plants Under Glass. It is only under the influence of light that an ordinary plant can absorb from the atmosphere the carbonic acid which is indispensable for the manufacture of new organic matter (starch, etc.), and which is hence essential for the growth of the vlant. The sunlight is composed of rays of different colors, of which auly rays of certain colors enable the plant to absorb the necessary carbonic acid. Now these particular rays ere not transmitted through blue glas, but theycan pass through yellow glass. Ifeoce a plant placed under blue glaes is starred be cause it cannot absorb carbonic acid, while a plant placed under yellow glass continues to grow because the light reaching it includes those special rays which enable the plant to absorb food in the form of carbonic acid.

POPULAR SCIENCE. Greatest Speed Through Space. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
POPULAR SCIENCE. Greatest Speed Through Space. According to Sir IRobert Ball, the star in Urea Major known as " Groombridge IS30" moves through space at the rate of 200 miles a second. Doctor Elkin, of Yale Univereity, has asserted that the star Arcturus surpasses even this in speed, and attaius the almost in. crediblevelocity of 3S0 nkes a aecond, an esti mate which, by the way, enormously differs from the fifty.-four miles a second credited to thisstar by Guillemin Lockyer, and Proctor, in 1883. Among comets the highest observed speed was attained by that of 16s0. which when close to the sun attained the speed of 1,200,000 mile anhour, or over 330 a second. Compared with these velocities, the speed of Mercury, the most swiftly revolving planet m the slar system, tweuty-nine miles a second, appears absolutely insignifieant.
Broadford Presbyterian Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Broatdford Presbyterian Church. 'T?lE annual tea-meeting in connection with the above church, took place on Tuesday evening in the Mechanics' Ia211, when a large number sat down to an excellent I spread. The attendance was not up to previous gatherings, but the weather greatly interfered with those who had to come any distance,nany no doubt, prefering to stop at home, sooner than risk a drenching. The decorations were of the highest I order, the large hall being made to appear t like a huge fernery, and the tasteful and t artistic manner in which the various plants, shrubs, and branches were made use of, I evidently betokened that decorative experts had been at work, and had executed their work in true artistic tashion. Ferns, reeds, rushes, willows, acacia, cyprus, wreaths, and a numerous collection of pot plants, &c., were made to blend in a very pleasing and refreshing manner, and reflect the greatest credit on those who had to do with this part of the work. The following...
Buying Wives. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Buying Wives. Pastor Gottschalk, of the Berlin Foundling House in Hong Kong, draws a sombre picture of the effects of the customs of polygamy among the Chinese. Among these is the lack of marriageable girls. At present girls are sold at a very high price; a girl of fourteen to sixteen can scarcely be purchased for less than one hundred dollars-a nrice which, as Herr Gottschalk quaintly says, "poor people can ill afford." Some buy for their infant son an infant wife, who is occasionally nursed at the same breast as her future husband. If this economical de vice fails, the matter is regarded as serious, as they may have no offspring to perform the sacrifices at their tombs. Young girls (adds Mr Gottschalk) dare not leave their homes for fear of being kidnapped, as they" not on frequently are. In a place one day's journey from Hong Kong, three or fomr ~ne ur ago, twenty young girls were stolen 5 a night, taken on board a junk, and earded no one knew whither. Unfortunately, the Berlin F...
ASSOCIATION MATCH. BROADFORD V. FLOWERDALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
ASSOCIATION MATCH. BROADFORD V. FLOWERDALE. Tu? association matches were brought to a conclusion on Saturday, when Broadford and Flowerdale tried conclusions on the local reserve. Begg won the toss and elected to bat, sending T. Hardy and Sheppard to the wickets. Craig and Hilliear opened the bowling and when the' score had been carried to 18 runs, Sheppard was clean bowled by Craig for 7. Trezise filled the vacancy and put on 8 runs before being caught and bowled by Hilliear. Begg now joined Hardy, and this partnership scored rapidly, and about to minutes to four o'clock, the lroadford innings was closed, Begg being 47 not out, and Hardy 33 not out; the total standing at toz for two wickets.. HIilliear secured one wicket for 15 runs. Munro and Craig opened for Flowerdale, against the bowling of Fothergill and G. Bidstrup, Craig was disposed of for a couple of runs, and Coombe for 7.

Treatment of Ingrowing Toe Nail. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Treatment of lIgrowing Toe Nail. In the " Asclepiad," Dr i. W. Richard son gives the following method of treating ingrowing toe.nail, which he says "answers perfectly." Half.an.hourbefore the opera. tion is performed the patient is directed to immerse the foot in a bath of tepid water, and gradually add hot water until the whole of the water is heated up to what can just be comfortably borne. Then into the water one drachm of common washing sods is added to each pint of the water in the bath, and the foot remains in the alka. line fluid for the half hour. At the end of that time the nail will be found quite soft and flexible. The foot is now to be well dried with a towel, and with a strong, short. bladed scalpel the nail is to be neatly scraped, over the crown of it, until it is as thin as thin paper. Next, with the handle of the scalpel, or with a flat director, the part of the nail to be removed is gently raised as far as pos. sible from its holdings; the nail over the matrix is p...

The Benefits of Modern Eating. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
The Benefits of Modern Eating. Moderation should be studied in the use of all things. Even the necessities of life may become superfluities through their quantity and quality being raised to the point of luxury. Take, for example, the food supply of the body. It is obvious that the body must have rich, forcersupplying food in order to carry on its daily tasks. Yet the fact is often loot aight of that an over-sptiy of food to the body, a like overcoaling the team engine, is produo- I tire of nothing bat waste. More steam is made thcacn be use Kor i thi all. In such a finely-adjusta machine as the human bodyno one pieoe of the complex organism can be overworked except at the ultimate expense of the rest. Not only are we inflicting the stomach with an unnecessary amount of work when t we crowd it with fod, but we are to the same extent imposing upon the other organs. As a matter of fact, it is the liver which generall 1 gets the brunt of the extra burden, thongh the heart and kidneys a...

One of them (esays our Paria correspondentt is to Fouche. and dated rosen, let l)rnhmber, IS06.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
PLAYS AND PLAYERS. -0 Mr Robert Buchanan's new comedy, founded on certain passages in the life of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, and entitled Dick Sheridan, was produced at the Comedy Theatre early last month. The appearance ofMrH.B. Irring-a son of Air Henry Irving-in the title role, and the inclusion of Miss Pattie Brown in the cast were two interesting featureaof the performance. Mr Irving is spoken of as playing with admir able intention, but failing somewhat in the imparting his conception of the character to the audience. bliss Pattic Browne plays the part of Mrs Lappet, a lady's maid, and is credited with acting with much deftness and good effect in apart that of itself has very little in it. Messrs Cyril Maude, Brandon Thomas, Lewis Waller, and Sydney Brongh, with Misses Winifred Emery andVane, are also in the east, and it must be no small atis faction to Miss Browne's friends to find her playing in association with such prominent people on the London stage. Mr'G. W. Anson had a...

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 1894. Easter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
AND REEDY CREEK TrIES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. THURSDAY, MIARCH 22, 1894. Easter. Once again, the ever-revolving wheel of time has brought us round to another Easter time; and while, perhaps, the Easter season is not looked forward to with such joyful anticipations by many as Chistmas time, one and all are re minded of the great and memorable events that transpired about this period some 1,800 years ago, and the svhole of Christendom devoutly acknowledges the anniversary-time of. one of the greatest events that has ever taken place in this world of ours. The an,. cients appeared to be more united in their conclusions as to the right dates on which the Easter celebrations should take place than they were in reference to the Christmas festivities ; as, with the exception of differences between the eastern and western churches, they, in the early centuries, determined at the Council of Nicesa that they should all keep the same day; the time fixed being the Lord's day next after the ful...
Sugar Beet Seed. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 March 1894
Sugar Beet Uted. The purchase of sugar beet seed is now being made for the next season; and a:cording to information received (says "La l ermier"), the prices will generally be higher thau last year. hecauoe of the bad results of the last crop and the competition of the distdlers. On account of the low price of sugar, the manufacturers show a certain reserve in purchasing. The price of the seed has undergone an excessive rise in value, in consequence of the deficit f the German crop. This fact has been the object of various commentaries in commercial cirdls. The last bulletin of the Society of Sugar Manufacturers of France says upon the subject: "It is, perhaps, going a little too far to foresee at present the area in beeoot cultivation reduced because of an insudicient supply of seed, or an irregular growth owing to poer quality of the seed sown, or a crop considerably lsened in value owing to the seed being old and in some cases mixedwith inferior sleeei s.
