Original Poetry. THE VOICE OF THE STORMWIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 November 1892
Original Poetry. --:o:--- THE VOICE OF THE STORMWIND. Down where the storm-winds blow O'er the sullen, surging sea; Where the waves theytlow, and come and go Fast and furiously. And over the reefs they throw White foam and silver spray, And shout in their wild dismay, And moan in sullen glee. But over the monotone drear, Of the sullen, surging sea, A voice I hear. sweet and clear : " Come back my love to me, To thy home and friends dear Return, oh love again, And cheer those hearts in pain Who watch and wait for thee." O voice of the stormwind, O song of the sullen sea; Sweet peace I find for a weary mind, When I listen alone to thee To one whom I left behind 'Neath Devon's deep blue sky Where the ocean waes o roll by, Take a message back for me. O one, in years gone by, Whom I left o'er the sullen sea, 0 would that I to thy side could fly, Thine own sweet face to see. But since I broke the tie Of childhood's dearest home, No matter where'er I roam Still I am true to thee. CuLL.As A...

Glenaroua. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 November 1892
[:Rout oU? W0I5N CORRESPOXDENT.] THI late rains have greatly improved things here. The crops and crass are looking splendid. In fact, some of the crops area bit too rich. I am pleased to hear that a number of farmers are going to try ensilage this season. 'imhe hints given by your paper, have, I think, induced them to prepare summer feed for their cattle, and any in formation from your currepondents as to the simple-t way to make it would be very valuable. Our folks were very successful at the Seymour Show, Ir. I). Ryan and Mr. \I. Seymour taking the principal prizes in blood and draught stock respectively. This was the first time I saw the single judge system carried out and I think it worked satisfactosily. It would be well if other societies introduced this system, for it must be better for one competent man to judge by himself than to be ham pered by ianferior ones, and I am sure would give more satilaction and would be less cost to the societies.
THE POSTMAN'S BELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 November 1892
TIHE 1'OSTMAN'S BELL. Esvetso?e knows the postman's knock, but there was a time-not so long ago when the postman'sa bell was olhost as familiara sound in big towns.

Each oman bore a locked leather satchel or bha, into which, through a slit, letters and other packets were dropped on payment of a fee of oneo penny for each letter and one half. peony for each ntewspalper in addition to the usual stomp. Tie men carried a large bell, which was constantly rutng to warn folk of their approach. These collectors also called at the local olfices for all letters on which the extra fees Ihad been lpaid, and they had to be back at tlhe head otlice by a given time before tlp night mail left. Ir. Wilson lyde says tlhat the special fees were the perqutisites of the postmtcn, and when the custom was abolished, about 18i5,...

Seyilour-Nagaillbic United Agricultural :lShow. Tus annual spring show of the above, says the "Express," was held at Seymour on Friday last, when, notwithstanding the dull times, there were excellent entries and a large attendance. The arrangements too, were good, and with one or two exceptions the judg. ing gave satisfaction both to exhibitors and the public, while the secretary's duties were admirably carried out. In draught and thoroughbred stallions the entries were miserably small, but the ex hibits brought forward were good. IMr. A. Callen's Iron Duke came Erst in the former, while lMr. D. Ryan's Quintin 31atsep and Vegetarian monopolised the prizes in the latter section. There was good competition in the section for hunters up to twelve stone.

Dairy Farming in Denmark. HINTS FOR VICTORIAN DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 November 1892

D.IRvYFAR?aItN being the principal industry in and arotnd this district, the following article from the L,udr, illustrative of the mredOr opraidhdi, in Denmark, which is noted tfr the excllence nf its butter, will be read with int.-rest :--Imish butter is selling at 140s. p":r 't, in England. This is good news lfr farmers, as it indicates that Vie. torian butter deaivered in good c,'Ondition in the Ltilon mtoarklet is well nigh certain to bring a satistaotory price. (OLe of two things, however, must he admitted : either Australia.n butter is inferior to D.mlish, or the British consumer has not yet hal it fairly brought i n ier his notice. Of anil the inlustries which have sprung into existence in Victoria none have male such sttisfietory progress in so short a time as co.l-operative dairying; but it is evident that a good. deal has yet to be learned, and as Denmark is now leading the van as the foremost butter pro during country ...

Yea Mcillas. Nearly 5,ooo lbs. of butter was made at the Yea FaLtol y during the first week's work, and it fetched top Fric s in Melbourne- toll and tII per lb. flow much would some milk suppliers be get. ting for their butter just now, if there were no factory ? Probably not more thad 6d or 7d. Let the grumblers make a note of this, and compare present prices for their milk with those obtained for butter in the month of October for two, three, or five years past. That is the only fair criterion. Some dairy farmers are getting as tmuch as LI per day from the milk sent to the creameries of the \'ea Dairy Com pang. That is very good, but with better herdlsof dairy cattle, and an cn silage pit for the summer and a few hay stacks for the winter, many of them ought to look forward to obtaining ([' :a day where they only get l now'. \Vceterun district dairymen are drawing (?t. s to L1.5oo per annum front their milk supplies to the dairys factories.

Spring Valley. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 November 1892
Spring Valley. :o: FROMI OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] DURING the past fortnight the weather has been all that could be desired. Nice light rains have fallen and the crops and gra-s are now in splendid condition. The season promises to tLc a good one. The s:uppy of milk to the local creamery is increasing daily and is now above 3,500 gallons per week. I think. the company should place another separa tor in the building as it is afternoon be. fore the last of the milk is put through. L'nless steps are taken to get it through e. rlier than this, in the hot weather a great deal of milk will be lost through g, ing sour. The wool clip this season is likely to be good. Several of the sheep-farmers were going to commence shearing this Meek, but the late rains will delay them. The cricket match that was to have been played between the Spring Valley and Flowerdale C. C's. on Saturday last,. on the ground of the latter, fell through as a number of the Valley team were un able to attend owing to pre...
