Dancing was com menced at 9 o'clock and kept on until midnight, when an adjourment was made for ,refreshments. The dancing was resumed again at 12.30 p.m., and kept up until the "we small hours" of the morning.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

PLAYS AND PLAYERS, Mrs Brown Potter and Mr Bellow, it appears, were unable to arrange dates with Mr Williamson, to admit, in the immediate future, at any rate, of their re.visiting Aus tralia. Early in July Mrs Potter and Sir Bellow are engaged to play a season at San lFrancisco, and as Mr Williamson could arrange for their contemplated visit, only during the month of June, the negotiations had to be abandoned. SMr Brian Darley, who will be remembered in Melbourne forhis performance of the part of Mercutio, is now playing the part of Charloey in a New York produotion of Charley's Aunt. Sir John Hare is said to beso well eatisfied with the success attending the revival of Casteat the Garrick, and the prospect of a ran of some little time being eecured, that he has gone to Monte Carlo for a holiday. Dur. ing tae second week of the revival money had to be refused in every quarter of the theatre except the stalls. It is very probable that Miss Kate Vnughan will be associated with Mr Edw...

The Balvator Mitrailleus4 The new ialvator mitral?leuse, or ulck of pieces have been tnanufactured, and am reported to be ready for dis tribution. The gun is not intended for use in the field, as in the case of the English Maxim and Nordenfelt machine-guns, but will be mounted stationary on the outworke encircling important fortresses. It is said to be only half the weight of the Maxim, and ito average rate of discharge is about the same-300 rounds per minute, with a maximum of 320. The diameter of the bore is 8 millimetre., being similar to that of the Manliobher re peating rifle now in use in the Austrian ser vice. The barrel is not encased in a water jacket, and 1200 continuous rounds can be fired before it shows the effects of the excessive heat. The car tridges are supplied, as in the Nordenfelt from a large hopper fixed above the fringehamber. The gun is firedby meansof anordinary trigger, with trigger grip, and a recoil spring supplies the automatic action. But the principal ...

Take Care of Your Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 April 1894

Take Care of Your Rorses. ----o- Experience seems to show th!t the heat horses of whatever color irei t,,ed among the dark shades of that color. 'l'b;t is, light chestnuts, etc., are not as good and enduring in any way as those of darker color. A man that neglects his horses is, more than probable, likely to treat his family about the same way. Remember that tall hores are not always large horses. Length of leg does not give size. Be firm with the colts from the first. lioraeas, like people, are spoiled when they are babies. When you see a horse with a dished face apd narrow front head, with his ears turned back wrong side out, as it he was always listening and looking for something to happen, let him alone. He is a fool for the want of sense. When the teams come in from the fields hot and dusty, strip off the harness and bathe the shoulders with water saturoted with salt. This treatment, with properly fitting collars, will keep the shoulders sound. Great care should be taken with t...
