Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 November 1892
C riMcket. n.p On Wednesday, the Prince of Wales' Birthday, the Broadford Cricket Club were to have met a team from Moonee Ponds, known as the Rosehill Cricket Club. When the time for the latter to start arrived it was fouud that only five had turned up at the station. These five, however, determined to keep the engagement and journeyed on until Wallan was reached, when it was found that a team from the Middle Park Club were aboard the train looking forward to a match with the Wallan Cricket Club. All the Wallan players, however, had gone to the Kilmore races, and it then arranged that the Middle Park and Rosehill clubs should combine and play Broadford. They arrived by the 9.35 train and were met by Mr. Duncan MacDougall, the captain of the Ivcat club, at whose invitation they afterwards visited the local paper mill, with which were much impressed. THE uG.Ant.. Play commenced about half-past one, each side playing 12 men. Charles captained the visiting team, and winning the toss el...

Successful Pig-breeding. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 November 1892
Successful Pig-breeding. As a rule the successful pigkeeper is he who breeds regularly year after year and is disposed to increase his output rather than decrease it when prices are at their lowest and supplies most in excess of demand. Such a breeder is ahluost invariably in a Iposi tion to place pigs on the market that are saleable at a profit even when the glut is most severe, because he always has the right class of brecding sows on hand and is ilot driven to breed front anything that may be obtained when prices are tempting. The breeder who is known to produce good stock can generally secure fair prices with very little difficulty. With regard to breed every man should choose that which he thinks most suitauile for his purpose and then endeavor to do his best with them and not ascribe failure to the breed alone, after the fashion of many who, have not made the business a success. A careful selection of breed ing sows is indispensably necessary. A small animal is not good proper...

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 November 1892
Reedy Creek. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESIJNDENT.] THE ball on Thursday night, in aid of the Kilmore Hospital, was only fairly successful. The promoters were 6d in debt af:cr paying expenses. Dancing commenced at 8.30. p.m., and at 12 o'clock an aijournment was made for supper, after which dancing was recom menced and kept up till 4 a.m. The hall was profusely decorated with ferns and ditferent kinds of greenrry._ and presented a fairy like appearance when lit up with Chinese lanterns. Just a word of praise to our local musician, Mr. Hill, for the music was splendid. The ladies without exception looked well and happy. The heaviest rain for some time past fell on Saturday last, when, in a few hours, the Creek was flooded to its ful lest capacity. It was rather amusing to behold the consternaticn of the women folk as their wash tubs, etc., floated down the stream, whilst some of our local braves waded up to their necks in water to try and fish out sundry articles. This ought to be a lesson to...

The large sheep owners go in for washing their wdcl where practicable. Some person or persons thinking they had a better right to the ownership of ten colts and fillies belonging to MIr.
