Obsolete Words in Webster's. VERBIAGE THAT IS OF NO USE TO ANYBODY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
Obsolete Words in Webster's. VERBIAGE TIlAT IS OF NO USE TO ANYB. DY. Any number of obsolete words are to be found in Webster's Dictionary. They crop out on almost every pajno of the bin book, and are apparently inserted for no other pur. pose than to continue the growth of the work and increase the difliculy of acquiring our language. Some idea of them may be gathered from the following letter, written by an alleged poet to an editor who had trgated his poetry with dgrision : ! Sin,-You have behaved like an impetigi nous ecroglel Like those awho, envious of any moral celsitude, carry their ungieity to the height of creating symposieally the fecund words which my pollymathia genius uses with uberty to abligate the tongues of the weetless ! Sir, you have crassly parodied my own pet words as though they were tran grams. I will not concervate reproaches-I will obduce a veil over the atramental ingrati tude which has chamfered even toy indiscerp. tible heart. I am silent sa the focillat...

The Kilmore Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
The Hillore hiospittal, It anothlr part of this issue ap. pears anr appeal for assistance to wards the holding of a fair for the purpose of securing foids in aid of the Iilmuore Hospital, which just now are in a very low state. The ha.?pital has special claims on the Broadford district, inasmnuch as a large number of patients from here yearly receive medical attendance and comforts therein, and whilst admitting that the residents have subscribed liberally in the past we would point out that --during thll past year, at any rate-the subscriptions fall far short of thle amount of the cost of relief received. We would therefore urge our readers, and the people of the district generally, to unite, in a purely undenominational spirit, in the holding and making a success of the fair promoted by Miss Fen cuso.s. And in doing so let it bhe borne in mind that it is only by the liberality of those who desire no benefit, that institutions like the Kilmore IHospital are maintained in order to af...
Woodbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
:o: [FPROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MR. McKendrick, of Kilmore, had rather a watery experience last week. He and 3fr. Poulton, of same place, were on a visit to V'oodbourne, and while they were returning home, on the S1th inst., ?Ir. McKendrick narrowly escaped with his life in the waters of the Yea river, near the Glenmore bridge. At this spot, in flood times, the water rushes over the road with great force, and .Mr. M'cKend rick, attempting to cross, was swept off, and carried away some distance, even tually catching a post and being saved from a watery grave. A similiar acci dent happened to Mr. D. Matchett at the same place about two months ago. A ball is to be held in the Mlurrindindi school in November, in aid of tile funds of the Glenmore Cricket Club. A new reef which was discovered some time ago at Phanton Hill, Kinglake, has turned out a rich one, yielding from S to to ozs. to the ton. A lucky find these times.

n Valley. ,-- .-?-, LFROM 'pt OWN CORRE'PJNDENT.] IT is reported that payable gcld has been fqund on the Muddy Creek, Glen purne. Several parties are at work. We rp. experiencing beautiful weather and everything is growing well. Crops are looking well, but there has been no extensiot in the cultivation area this season. People here cannot be con vinced that it is profitable to grow fodder for milking stock for sur.,mer months. They say that with the low price for milk it will not pay them to do so. This, however, is a fallacy and my information is based on personal experience. Last summer, we made an ensilage pit, or rather a large box, placed above ground. It was constructed of logs, twelve feet in the clear, the logs being chocked into one another-and about ten feet in height. We filled the pit with all sorts of green stuff-principally grass-and opened it in the latter part of December, and fed some 20 cows throughout the dry months. Some of the cows are still milking and have bee...

Some notes on the treatment of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
SJ)ie n1otes on tipt treat ment of milk.. (From the Australian Farm and Home). [Bur 3.. J. CHRISTENSEi, MIANSOER BUTTER FACTORY, YEA.] TlttERare lots of points connected with the treatment and handling of milk that require remedying very much. When butter fails to realise a satisfactory price, the blame is invariably placed on the shoulders of the factory manager. A manager is expected to turn cut a superior quality of butter, no matter lhow interior in quality the material supplied to himn may be. Directors and share holders should recollect that, unless a factory manager is furnished with good, sound milk, it is impossible for him tq manufacture a prime quality of putter. The foundation of good butter com mences with the feeding of the cows, and cleanliness and judgement in handling the milk from the time it is drawn from the cow until it reaches the factory or creamrery. As th!eexport season is about to commence, factory managers should make an effort, through the columns of the ...

DEATHS ON THE STAGE. r o of There is one department of stage craft. it of seems, which the prevailing realism of the w day has as yet hardly touched. This is the b1 representation of death as? disease. The D reason in the case of death is simple.

The Australians stood in a good position for winning, anc con sequently the captain of the colonials walked into the Tavistook Hotel at Covent (:arden with a very agreeable ex pression pictured on his face. He chatted freely on the prospects and fortunes of the season, which has not turned out so favorable to the Australians as they might have wished. "Yes," said Mr lilaekham, " we have had plenty of ups and downs this sea son, and we may have more before the end. .First - class cricket is com posed of ups and downs, and I never make any boast of what we may do until the season is over.
