THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
FIHE WIDE WORLD. Something like the incideit in Caste wherein the young 3ffieer returns as though nothing had happened, to the wife who is mourning him as dead, has been enacted in real life in Paris. The" Daily New"'! states that a man fell down in a fit in the Rue Ravez, and before he could be takento a hos pital he expired. " The bodywas identified as that of a newsagent named Peyraulie, carry. ing on bubineess in the Rue Sanche des Pom miers, and it was forthwith taken to the address indicated. Madame Peyraolie, who was much afflicted when she heard that her husband was dead, identified the body and had it taken upstairs to a bedroom and deposited on a bed. The poor widow, as she supposed herself to be, lighted some candles, after the fashion in Roman Catholic countries, and placed them round the bed. Slie then remained for some time in prayer aver the body. Soon after she went downstairs, however, ehe was thunderstruck to see her husband walk in in good health and spirits. Ileb...
About Names. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
About Names. o0 " What's in a namo I" asked Juliet. If that young lady had been a practical eardener, instead of merely sitting on that balcony overlooking the garden fooling about with young Romeo; or if she had (as many girls do) carried on flirta, on with the gardener, she ought to have learned that there is a good deal in a name. Confuston is caused by two or three varieties of fruits having the sanRe name. The interesting fruit exhibition a tha Melbourne Exhibition Unilding is going to change all this. Going to codify fruits names. Russia still has many odd and curious marriago customs. One is for the bride and bridegroom to race rapidly down tht aisle as soon as the bridal processioa enters the church, because of the belief that whichever places a foot first on the cloth in front of the altar will be master' in the household.
The Matable Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
The Matabele Campaign. ----e--.. Mr Labouchere writes as follows re the Mlatabele campaign : ty opinion is absolutely independent. It isr-. That the war was forcedon Lobengula by the company because it could only stave off ruin by the seizore of Mateboleland. 2. That Iatebeleland is worthless, in the sense that the cost of administration must for many a year exceed income un less mininm gold in paying amounts can be found; and this has not been found. 3. That the war was waged in a fashion dis grseeofl to civilisation. 4. Thatanyone who either relieves the promoters of the company of the one million shares that they have pre. sented to themselves, or lends the company money by taking its debentures, is one of those persons to whom the proverb applies that "A fool and his money soon part," the present indebtedness of the com pany now exceeding any reasonable estimate of its assets. 5.

The Religious Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
The Religious Question, In times whore the proportion of.non church-goers to church-goers is rapidly expanding, one easily appreciates the reason for an inquiry which has recently been held in the city of Leeds. The local association of Non-conformist ministers sought information as to the religious habits-or the lack of them--of 50,000 families, 10,000 of whom declared they "went nowhere." A series of ques tions appears to have been asked, and the " Westminster Gazette" repro duces some of the answers. They are decidedly interesting. Just such in fact as might have been expected just su-ch as would probably be- given if the same questions were put in the City of Melbourne. Here are a few of the reasons offered by paterfamilias for abstaining from public worship.: 1. "Thinks he wants fresh air, aud'gets it on Sundays." 2. "Too tired to get out on Sundays." 3. " Those who go are no better than they ought to be." 4. "What particular church are you cona nected with"-" Co-operative stor...
LIGHT ! LIGHT ! LIGHT! To the Editor of the Broadford Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
LIGI-T I LIGHTI LIGHTI Tb tk .Editor.ofthe Broadford Courier. Srt,-Kindly allow, me, through the. medium of your journal, to point out a great draw.bapk to cur township, that is, the absence of any light in the streets at night time. I refer more particularly, of course, to High street, which, on account of its width, and formation requires some light to enable people on a dark night to see where they are going. As kerosene is very cheap at the present time, it would not cost much to. light half.a-dozen lamps or so, which would be a great improvement on the. existing order of things. It seems to be the principal aim of all institutions and private persons to keep abreast of the times, and be up to date in everything; but this cannot be said of the local Council nor residents. otherwise some. steps would have been taken to remedy this defect. However, I think the. presence of a few bright lights would help materially to relieve the prevailing darkness, and also go a long way to take ...

AGRICULTURAL. Shelter Belts. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
AGRICULTURAL. Shelter Belts. Where a grower has'only an acre or eo of orchard or garden, hbe cannot with advantage plant a belt ofsugargums around it,.Lecausa the roots of the treesmust have liberty to range in search of food and moisture. For such a mall area the best shelter belt would be Tamn urix galli or else olives. Laud is cheap and plentiful, and shelter is urgently neeled where ever the orchard, vineyard, or garden is ex pcsed to strong winds. The trees used should be in at least three rows, and quite 100ft. away from the nearest fruit trees, vines, or vegetables. In most places the asugr gum thrives well and produees aluble timber. At frst the trees should he planted Eft. apart, and when they hrse grown up to a good height each alternate treo should be removed. Olives will thrive in many places, and these trees will grow more qnuicily if judiciouslyproned. Grafted trees, or those raised by cuttings from good sorts should be planted.

A Silage Crop. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
A Silage Crop. The cow has been aptly described . an ani mated contrivance for manufacturing fodder into milk. It is a fact that milk cannot be pro duced without food, and that the quantity and quality of the milk made depends upon the quality and quantity of the food given to the cow. Give her poor food in small quantity, and she can only make a small quantity o poor milk. For this reason evert owner of eows ought to grow r1op0 of nutritoua fodder to he put down as slioge for giving to the cows when the grass begins tb get dry. A mixture of any kind of cereal with vetches or peas will make excellent silage. The greater the mixture of nutritious fodders that can be got to flower at the one time, the better will the cows like the silage, and the better, too, for the milk and for the health of the cows. Any green sluff that cows will eat can be made into silege, but It will not be made any better for food supply by putting it in a pit or stack. The moot on trious gra.ses and herbs mak...

Making Ensilage. -0- The temperature for sour or pit ensilage should be allowedto rise to 0Odeg. Fah.. and never higher than 10Odeg. Fah. Keep on htlling and treading or rolling the ailago until the pit is filled. If boards can be fitted to the tonp, till up above thepit as high as possible.

After they are pro 1t perly dry they should be placed in a abhd for a at day or two, and fed on chopped egg moixed with bread crumbs, and moistened with milk, varied with boiled rice. Often when so treated they will almost be seen to grow, but no attempt should be made to force them to eat until they ore eighteen hcurs old.

Dosing Infants [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
Dosing Infants A striking instance of the reckless practice of dosing infant children with opiates has been brought to light by proceedings before Dr Craddock, the Coroner of Pill, near Bristol. The inquiry was into the cause of death of Mary Ann Endicott, an illegitimatechild,four years old, who since a few days after her birth had been in the care of a woman named lotcher ; an allow ance being made for this service of four shillings, and subsequently three shillings a week. Mrs Butcher, with some reluctance, con fessed that, in order to save herself and her husband from annoyance. she had been in the habit of giving her little charge laudanum to "keep it quiet" everyday. She began with "one drop," which the Coroner observed was sufficient to kill a child of ten days old, and as the doses lost their power on repetition she had gone on till little Mary Ann Endicott was actually taking ten drops a day. One Saturasy the child was observed by this persistent dragger-it is her own accou...

The Deadly Lockjaw. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894
The Deadly Lockjaw. Ternouos the discovery of the bacillus of lockjaw it is now possible to cure persons esvffering from that commonly fatal disease. The bacillus is in the shape of a drumstick, and contains deadly poison. It is found everywhere in the surface soil of streets and fields, and every time a foreign substance enters the hodly lockjaw is highly possible. Of course a vitiated system is more likely to become a prey to the ravages of the destroy. ing microbe than one full of vigour and fine physical action. Not only lockjaw, but almost all diseases that afflict man, can be avoided by keeping the internal canals of the anatomy clean and wholesome.
