But she as colored, and in some parts of the cited States that is enough. So these es and enlihtened ciizens of that great on which a tyrant's foont dares not r d, etc., etc., seized the negress, puf her into a barrel filied ii saniked nails, and, rolled her upl and down a hill until she was nearly dead. Then they took hert out, hung her up to the branch of a treg and tired at her as a mark that soon bechme riddled with bullets. Of course, nothing was done to these men, nothing smll be done in a state of society in which the part of the Eagle is too often played by thevulture.

Patterson v. Press. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

Patterson V. Press. Mn. PATTErnsON is falling out with the Press. There is no doubt that there is reason at times, yea, very great reason to criticise the actions of the two metropolitan journals (7e. Argur and khe Age), as very often their reports are fall of bias. One has only to look at their reports of speeches made in the House by various members. If the member's policy is suitable to the policy of the particular journal, then he is fully reported; if otherwise, sometimes a speech that is full of force and argument is cut down almost to half-a-dozen lines. While it would be impossible to report all men fully there ought to be a modicum of just treatment meted out to all members. But Mr. PATTERso?( is evidently coming out of the present conflict very badly. He says he has been misreported and misrepresented, but The Age states that a special and reliable reporter was told off to report his Williamstown speech, and faith fully carried out his duties. If we were not acquainted wit...

Home and Fireside. How To CnuE A HaL-r.-In selecting a pig for bacon and hams choose an animal over a year old-one that has been properly cared, housed and coarfed. Mauch ham and bacon is spoiled owing to carelessness on these points. If the animal be under a year old the ham will not acquire that rich, mellow flavor which is so much appreciated by con sumers. For two hams weighing say 201b. each, take Ilb. of well pulverised saltpetre, 21b. of the best salt, otz. of sal prunella, and lb. of the best spice.

Traffic in Child Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

Traffic in. Child Life. From the fate of the anarchist ailhant the public mind of Franoe has turned to that of his infant daughter-"la petite Sidonie" and has made it the text on which to weave a most opportune discussion on the "future of derelict childhood." Bad as is the outlook for the children of con vict parents in our own country, it is even worse on the continent of E?rope, where poverty it deeper and the struggle for existence herder. Indeed, a child does not need to be born in a criminal home in Latin countries to have the sternest conditions meted out to it. The streets of our own metronolis, to say notbingof those of European capitals gene rally, hear witness to this fact. There may be seen the itinerant Italian arab, forming part of the stock-in-trade of the organ grinder or showman, kidnapped from its Cala brian home (when not actually sold by its parents) and inured from its tenderest years to mendicancy, vice and crime. At. tempts to put down this iniquitous traffic ...

Presentations. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

Presentations. By the Author of "Manners and Rules of Good Society." Presentations attheearlydrawingrooms have so increased in number during the last few years that it has been found expedient this year to limit presentations at each drawmngroom to 200 only. This restriction is of some moment to those having debutantes to present, as it is an understood thing that a presentation made ba. fore Easter is more advantageous, from a society point of view, than one made after Easter. A tonger season is secured by an early presentation, and hence the crowded pro.Easter drawing. rooms. This does not apply withthe same force to ladies presented "on marriage," although they also prefer, as a general rule, an early presentation to one later in the season. Necessarily the list of names for presentation will rapidly fill, and therefore they should be sent in at the earliest possible moment, to prevent disappointment, now that the dates of the drawingrooms have been announced.

Eggs of Reptiles. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 April 1894

Eggs of Reptiles. Among reptiles the eggs exhibit great both ends, and about the size of an ordinary duck's egg. The eggs of the sea turtle are as large as a small apple, rounded, and have a flexible shell. Those of the snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentine) are muoh smaller, but also ronded. Those of the terrapins (Clemmys, and other genera) are oblong, as also are those of lizards. In the common black and yellow dotted American fresh water terrapins, and in the painted terrapin, the eggs require four years of growth before they arelaid. Take a seven. year-old turtle of this kind; it will contain only very small eggs, all of uniform size. An eight-year-old tortoise of the same kind will have two set of eggs, one larger and one smaller. One of nine years will have three sets, the oldest set being the size of a small pea. A tortoise often years will have four sets of eggs, and in that year she will lay for the first time, and give birth to the most mature set.-" Science Gosasip." .-o-...

Spring Valley. -:o: [aaO1 OUR OWN OOBRESIPONDENT.) OsN day last week, Mr. E. Brady, of Break o'-Day, met with a very painful accident. It appears he was in the act of placing a cartridge in the breach of his gun, when it exploded into his face, with the very painful result, that one of his eyes were seriously injure4. He is progressing as favorably as can be expected. This is the second gun accident he has met with, as some few years ago part of his foot was blown away. Messrs. J. Matchett and Fletcher were unfortunate in having two valuable horses stolen the other day. It appears there were two travellers, who left their own horses, and took those belonging to the above named gentlemen. The horses left were two very inferior animals. There are many complaints made in reference to our Majesty's mail service to this quarter, owing to correspondence being missent from Broadford. It seems that the mails are placed into the several mail bags, irrespective of their addresses. I hear ther...

The German Emperor is posing once again as the patron of fine arts, (says a London paper). Leoneavallo, the Italian composer. recently enshanted all theatre.going Berlin with his opera, I Medici, based on a period in Italian history. It has now been his Majesty's good pleasure to "order" an opera of the same kind. taking for his subject an incident in German history. It has not yet appeared whether this incident is to be taken from the glorious period since Wilhelm II.ohas come to grace the throne of his fathers. But it ought not to be diffiult for a composer to find plenty of dramatic situations in the historyof Germany during the last four years. A more difficult thing would be the selection of a reene from the embarras des richessee.

Wife-hunting. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Wife-hunting. -0 It seems that an entirely new field of in dustry has been opened to the energetit young man that will no doubt be ema lated by the clever young woman. This idea emanated in the " wild and woolly" west, and seems especially suited to the sensible young woman who knows her own sex well. It is that of wife.hunting. About one hundred young eastern men, who have gone to Perry, O. T., and different towns to settle, and have prospered, find life very lonely, without woman's society. Oi course, as everybody knows, there are no women to speak of in these new towns. Therefore, the men have hit upon a novel plan. They have clubbed together and engaged a M? Emmet Whitmer, of Perry, to come east and select wives for them, as their duties pprevent them from comiing in person. Mr Whitmer has in his possession the photo. graphs of over thirty good-looking young men, who are pining for the charms of matrimouy. He is making abee-lino for the New England factory districts, where his t...

THE ARREST OF JABEZ BALFOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

THE ARREST OF JABEZ BALFOUR. The accounts given from time to time by the London press of how the arrest of the notorious Jabez Spencer Balfour was effected differ widely. From a report given by the " Westminister Gazette," it would appear that the eminent " philanthropist" was treated with a shocking rudeness by those into whose hands he fell. Our contemporary relates that Balfour was actually " seized in the open street, in the sight of everybody, and his pockets were emptied on the spot, then and there. He was then hustled into the Governor's carriage and driven to the police station. Arrived there, he was put into a cell which was absolutely destitute of everything but its four walls. There was not even a stool to sit upon, or a seat, and yet le was de tained there nearly three hours.'" A rue ful picture truly. Perhaps the men con cerned in the arrest did not know what an important scoundrel Bal. four was. On the other hand, perhaps they did; and the thought of what the Liberator...
