Sanitation and Ventilation of Butter Factories. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Sanitation and Ventilation of Butter Factories. In the course of a very inmatructive paper read at a factory conference in Ireland, a member had the following remarks to make: There are various tests for sanitation and drainage. I should suggest the following test for a badly-drained, unsanitary dairy :-Let the cream for churning stand for twenty four hours in a shallow, wide vessel during warm weather in the dairy that is iu bad condition, skim off about an inch in depth of this, churn it separately from the remainder of the cream. According to the foulness of the drains and want of sanitary condition in the dairy will be the difference in the quality of the butter made. The top layer of cream will have been impreg. nated with organisms of an injurious character to such an extent as to cause the cream to yield butterof abad character. Every effort should be made to secure for factories a perfect system of ventilated drain. age. No drain should communicate directly with the building...

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

.... lenaroua. (FROM OUR OWN CORRB5PONDENT.] DURING the last fortnight two engineers from the Railway department have been en gaged in this vicinity surveying and making a general estimate of the damages done by the late bush fire. No definite information has been received whether compensation will be given to those who suffered from it, but it is generally believed that the Railway Commissioners will reimburse them for their losses. Our local creamery has been reduced to three days a week, being now worced alter nately with Sugarloaf Creek by Mr. G. GnLfiths, of the Irobadford factory. General regret is expressed at the withdrawal of Mr. B. Carley from Glenaroua, who, by his genial disposition and kindly manner has become a general favorite with all he came in contact with. As a manager he could not be sur passed being a first class business man, and one who keeps everything in a thoroughly pleanly manner. lMen of the stamp of Mr. C?rley should be an acquisition to the Broad. f[rd ...

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

Reedy Creek. -to: [FRno0u t OWN COBRESPONDENT,] A .picere party was organised between the residents of Reedy Creek and the Comet Saw Mills, to visit the Strath Creek falls the other day, when about 15 young ladies and gentlemen put in an appearance from Reedy Creek, and a like number from the Mill. The parties arrived at the falls about I o'clock, and, after viewing the sights, adjourned to luncheon, where ample justice was done to the good things kindly provided by the M3esdames Sims, Holt, and Allision, of the Comet Mill. Whilst oneyoung lady, more venturesome than the rest, was pro. ceeding along the top of some steep rocks, she unfortunately lost her balance, and fell into the water below, but was immediately rescued by a young man from the creek, familiarly known as'1 The Doctor." The bonly damage received by the lady was a severe shock to the sys tem. The Langridge party last week crushed io loads of stone from their claim, which gave the satisfactory return of 4{ozs. of smelt...

Work First, Play Afterwards [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Work First, Play Afterwards ?o " You had better do y our lessons first," said Mrs Paterson. "But I do sowantto go out. Dora is waiting for me," replied Fred. "Yes, Dora has done her lessons." "It may rain later." "Oh, no; there is no sign of rain." " But Dora and I want to have a long walk and gather flowers." "Well, surely the flowers will be there after lessons are done." " But I do want to no now," urged Fred. "Very good, Fred; you shall have your own way, and see what will come of it." Having thus obtained a reluctant consent, Fred left the room and joined his sister, Dora. A few moments later they were on their way up the lane. After a while they turned into the paddocks and took the path which led to the bush where the flowers grew. The spring sunshine was warm and bright ; and thebirdssaangmusically; and Dora was as light-hearted as the birds. But something was wrong with Fred. He was not ashappy as be had expected to be. Those unlearnt lessons were heavy on his mind. He felt...

A Bride's Refusal [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

A Bride's Refusal Another daughter in revolt. The Wel lington bride who vigorously exclaimed, " No. I won't have him," when she was expected to bashtully whisper " I will," has caused quite a compre hensible sensation in social circles. The young couple who went all the way to the church ostensibly to be made one are well-known "society " people in the charming New Zealand city. Apparently the hitch was an unexpected one, although one sus pects that the bride had not been a very willing party at any stage of the proceedings. She probably yielded to pressure up to a certain point, but ulti mately summoned up courage enough to revolt-at the altar, it is true, but before it was too late. The report states that her father "remonstrated," yet that un dutiful daughter, as some ridiculous people would call her, persisted in her spirit of mutiny.

The Definition of a Girl Bachelor. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

The Definition of a Girl Bachelor. U" What," said the lady of the old school, looking p from her magazine, "what is the girl bachelor?" The only example of that type of femininity present said promptly: " A womanwho earns her living and spends it as she chooses." The male bashelor said unpleasantly: "The sort of a woman who insists upon pay ing her own car fares in the sight of all the passengers, and always waves you to one side while she bargains with cabmen and trunk carriers." "She is a woman," remarked the em broiderer, sententiously, " who sends her skirts to the seamstress for fresh braids, and her stockings to a professional mender for darn ing." " She goes to the theatre alone and sits in the top gallery, if she feels like it," said the chaperoned girl. "She's tremendously bright." averred the sub-freshman, who still cherished a youthful liking for intellect. " She's horribly self-sufficient," said the vain " She's thoroughly kind and sensible," said the mother of five smal...

Cricket in Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Cricket in Western Australia. -o A correspondent sends us the following par., said to have been taken from the "Edinburgh Evening Despatch" of the 17th January last:-" Western Australia is advancing rapidly, but it seems to be still a little behind in the matter of scientific cricket. A match was recently played at Bunbury, Western Australia, be tweena Victorian teamand a scratcheleven from the neighborhood. The ' gum suckers' went in first, and the first ball bowled was skied into a three-pronged branch of a tall jarrab tree. The home team cried 'Lost ball,' but the umpire ruled that as it was in sight it could not be lost. The Victorians started running, while the West Australians sent for an axe to cut down the tree. No axe being obtainable, somebody brought out a rifle,and the ball, after numerous misses, was shot down. The score on the one hit was 286, and the Victorians' stood' on that, and put the other side in. The Victorians won." Our correspondent asks us to say if this is...

I wondered why I danced at all. I thought the orchestra too small; I felt the drought blow through the hall; I swore I'd go--then swore I'd not Till Ethel came. A wondrous change did then befall, The music Strauss might well extol; 'The surface suited to e dot; Then stairs were eol when rooms were hot.

The French Revolution. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

The French Revolution. --0- One of the effects of the new ideas which gave birth to the Revolution was to lessen the due respect of children to their parents and teachers. Another was that their familiarity with bloodshed. ding led to its inevitable result, and their contempt of the horrors of the "national razor" showed itself in their playing with models of it, and their childish cruelty in using it upon living subjects. In his highly intereoting work on the French Revolution, Mr Alger writes that: Guillotines became children's toys, with which they operated upon birds, mice and in sects. Even as late as 1801 the Arras authori. ties had to order the seizure and destruction of these toys, as " suggesting ideas of death which might render children ferocious and sanguinary." And at Paris in 170.3 a commissary suggested that children should not be allowed to approachthescaffold just after an execution (two murderers had then been guillotined), as this was calculated to impair their pr...

Bread in Ancient Days. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Bread in Ancient Days. Among the ancient Greeks bread was not simply an adjunct to, but an essential portion of the principalmealof the day. The chiefs of the heroio period lived almost exclusively on two dishes-roast meat (over which a little flour was sprinkled) and wheaten bread. The flour was ground in a hand mill by the female servant ; it was then made into dough, a portion of salt added, and baked in a special part of the kitchen. Wheaten bread enjoyed a great reputation in those days. Homer calls it the strength of man. Bread was the first thing set before a guest. It represented civilisation, whereas meat was representative of the old style. When Odysseus fled for refuge to the palace of Alkinooe, bread is specially mentioned among the 'dishee" set before him. In the historical Hellas bread played a similar part ; it was one of theprincipalfoodsof thepeople, was regarded as indispensable by the better classes, and certain kinds of it were looked upon in the light of luxurie...

Mechanical Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

Mechanical Horses. o---. Faust and Mephistopheles on their memor able ride were not mounted on more fiery looking steeds than those mechanical horEes designed by Mr Charles Ingrey, M.I.C.E., for operatic purposes. In subdued light under a railway arch (writes a representative of a London paper), I saw these wondrous animals, with foaming mouths, fire-flashing eyes, ears pricking, tails lashing, galloping at break-neck speed-and yet stationary, so that the riding tenor could do justice to his upper C without any inconvenience. Stage properties will seldom stand a close examination so well as Mr Ingrey's inven tions. This gentleman, an engineer by profession, has used his knowledge of applied mechanics in a very ingenious way. He has made two horses, 16 or 17 hands high, anatomically correct, which are sup ported from their bellies with an iron tube. By means of a hand wheel, which moves in numerable levers, the horses' legs imitate the extremes of galloping in a realistic fashion (wh...
