Kilmore Agricultural Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
Kihntore Agricultural Show. THE annual show in connection with the Kiltnore Agricultural and Pasto al So. ciety, which was hald in the Shov grounds on Thursday last, may be classed as one of the most successful held for some years past. The day was beautifully fine, a cool southerly breeze tempering the rays of the sun, and ren dering the daya most pleasant one for the Show. The grounds were tn excel lent order, the rich green sward of grasm affording every possible comfort to the visitors. The attendance was about equal to previous years, but the takings at tthe gates showed an increase of about .7 over last year's. This may be ac counted for by the fact of closer super vision being exercised over the admission of people at the gates. For the first time in the history of the society, we be lieve;, not a singW'repiedeietatile ?T Parliament was present, a. circumstance which the President particularly referred to at luncheon as not an unmixed bless ing.

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1892. The Dixson Will Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
AND REEDY CREEK TIMEJS. t PUBLISHED EV RY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, DECEMIBER a, 1892. The Dixson Will Case. IF THE ghost of DixsoN (deceased) has been hovering over the tight that has been going on over his proeperty, in the Supreme Cour;, he will not have felt very proud of his attempt to keep his money from his legitimate heirs. Neither will lie be proud at hearing the history of his own life related by that unhappy lady who had the ,misfortune to be his wife. The upshot of the whole atbair constitutes one of the finest jokes that has been enacted in the courts for a long time past. Here is a man who :mnaged to atlass' a fortune of some £40,000 in spite of his drunken habits, a fact that says much for the virtues of the ' fragrant weed" in which he dealt. the disposal of which after his deantl appears to have giveh him a great deal of trouble during the later years of his life. Having arranged that his widow and children should receive £9000, he left the residue, about £30,000, to the Melb...
Sale of Township Allotments. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
~ilec of Tl'own.llip Allotmncts. ---:o:-- Os Tuesday morning a sale of Crown allotments situate in the township of iroadford were submitted to auction by M1essrs. Walider, liarte and Wallder. Of a total of 21 lots, six were withdrawn by petition from the inhabitants of the township on the ground that the sale of these-l.ots. 14 to 9g, and situate be tween Gavan-street and Sunday Creek would curtail the Town Common to the injury of local interests. As the demand was principally on the allotments with drawn, the competition was scmewhat slight. The only lot which excited in. terest was the last offered which, starting at C2 per acre, rose to L11, by rises of sixpence. The following were the -buyers:- -- . - FRONTING WHITE STIrEET. Lot. i.

Under the Verandah. THE DEPRESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
TIIE DEPRESSION. Evexv trade suiiers in a period of de pression, it seems, excepting that of the bo bkmaker. B]d times have the ell'.ct of increasing rather than dimui nishing the gambling spirit of the community, anl Ikey Moses and the rest. of thl fraternity gather in the sh,.l:els. It is alteged by those who chould know that never at any previous Ieriod of the col ny's history was the betting mania so rife as now, and 1not mierely are the cormorant "consulta rions" kept booni:ng, but, every Itrile lace o:eetinlg hltlps to sustain the insane gname. The spirit of retrenchntent affl.cts eve y nmart save the gambling booth. Even the doctors are calling out. People cannot afford to be ill, or, which amounts to the samte thing from the medical ottndpoint, cannot afford to cherish fancied arlmen's. The iuxury of hypoelondriasis has to go with th ot.lher luxuries, and the ledicos who usually collltlltand the largest plactices find themlselves among Ite untcmlloyed. I wonder if the hard t...
Cricket. BROADFORD V. TALLAROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
Cricket. - :o: BROADFORD V. TALLAROOK. NOTW\rITHSTANDING that three of the team chosen to journey to Tallarook on Satur d y last failed to apprise the secretary of their intended absence, a full team mustered on the ground, and if the " sab." did not sake runs, they certainly deserve credit for the manner in which they fielded. The game commenced at 2.30 p.m., Winnell cap. taining Tallarook and 1aeoDaugall the visitors. Broadford were the first to bat and put together the respectable total of 131 runs before being disposed of. Tallarook then took the wickets and responded with a total of 65 runs, and this being more than 0O runs below the score of the Broalford team they decided to follow on, and in their second innings had eulopiled 32 runs for the loss of four wickets when time was called. Ap tended are the scores : BROADFORD. Trezise, a Kennedy, b Murphy 40 J. lloban, c Dixon, b Winuett 3, T. Shepparl, run out.. .. 2 U. Sheppard, play'd on, b Murphy 12 MalDougall, b Winnell .. 0 ...

THEl GOVIERNOR IN GIIPPSLAND.

The Labor Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
T'le Labor Question. TuiE retiring secretary of the Pastora. list's Associatior., Mr. Edmund Mit. chell, who delivered an addre-s on the 23.d inst, at the Atheuneum Hall, on tlhe labor question in Australia, was says the 4g9, much in the position of the sower who " went forth to sow " and whose seed "fell among theorn." which " grew up and choked it." Members of trades unions crowded the building, and made the audible enuncia tion of his remarks a matter of extreme vocal effirt. The address was thlus rende ed comparatively ineffective, and Mr. Mitchell himself was subjected to offensive innuendoes and opprobrious j ers. When he had concluded his lecture, Mr. J. hancock aceused him of ,ot having said a swod which would luuing capital and labor together and i of "jumping on labor when it was down.'" Amidst roars of lauhtter he moved to the effect that M r. Mitchell's residenlce in Victoria had been disas trous to the colony, ad Ilhat tihe nmeet ing hoped when lie left these shaures he...
Small Corn Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
Sojaell Corln CO'Ops. Poor crops of almost anything else may be laid ci! upon the season or some other excuse; but a poor corn crop means poverty of soil and poor cultivation, or both combined. Land cannot be too rich for corn, as it may for almost any other grain. It canrot be too thoroughly tilled. Knowing ilis the poor corn crop is all through the opo0n a tarding reproach to the careless, khiftices farmer. Sometimes the careless. news begins even with the seed. I! that is poor nothing after can be done to remedy the leteci. Mistress: "Mercy on me, what a kitchen I Isvcry pot, pan, and dish is dirty, the table looks like a junk shop, and-why at will take you a week to get thinge cleaned up What have you been doing ?" Servant " Sure, mum, the yon+g leddiel has just been down here showin& me how they roast a potato at the cooking ohouol."
ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892
ART. Mr. R. G. Johnson, the well-kr.own archi tect of Melbourne, was the judge for the drawing, andin giving the prize to .liss Je.sie lBoyd, showed his judgment ; the sub ject was a dog's head, and was cleverly exe. cuted, showing considerable aptitude on the part of the young lady. Unfortunately there was no prize for oil and water colors, other. wisea painting in oil by Mr. A. E. Ward ' In the Time of BIlossom," taken from'near \, hittlesea. would have held its own, even in a, artist's exhibition. Several local views, t;ken and exbtbited by Mr. G. B. Good, in the bromide and cyanotype processes of photography, attracted a large share of at. ter.tion. Two views of Iilmore ware shown, oe being reproduced from a copy taken in 1656, and the other showing the town in 1092. These are amongst the latest styles in photography, and as an amateur Mr. Go.od's views are really creditable. Several other drawings, and educational exhibits completed an interesting collection. The following is a...
