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

Diimond Drill. As will be seen in another column, sr. Stirling paid his long promised visit to. the Reedy Creek and Tyaak gold-fields on Thursday last, and, taken as 4 whole, he is very favorable.in his opinion as to the necessity of a borq going to the former place.. It is now repqrted that the drill carrying on operations at Goldie, Kil mor'e, will be of no use for the boring that is required at Reedy, as it can only go down to a depth of 500 feet. If that he true, it is a great pity. for while it might do. perhaps on some of the reefs at the Creek, it would be useless on others, as the depth already worked Js ab.out spo feet. :-oweverueo notrue, the past records of the district as to its gold-yield ing capacity, backed up, by a favorable report. by the geologist, is. quite neQngah to justify the Mines department in se.d ing a drill to test the deep ground. There is no doubt that there is not thesympathy and energy displayed in this agitation by many of the residents of this local...

No Triple Alliance. BUT THE ALLIANCE OF ALL CIVILISED NATIONS IN FAVOR OF WARNER'S SAFE REMEDIES. CURING ALL PEOPLES IN ALL CLIMES, AND UNDER ALL CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 April 1894

No Triple Alliance. BUT THE ALLIANCE OF ALL CIVILIZED NATIONS IN FAVOR OF WARNER'S SAFE REMEDIES. CURING ALL PEOPLES, IN ALL CLIMES. AND UNDER ALL CONDITIONS. CONsTANT efforts are being made to bring about strong alliances between powerful Nations, either for defensive or offensive purposes, which, however, are of little im. portance to mankind, as compared with the universal alliance for the protection of the public health, All civilized Nations are allied in matters of sanitary regulatoon and matters pertaining to public health. As will be shown below, all Nations are allied in the question of Warner's Safe Cure as being the most valuable remedy for the cure of diseases of the kidneys, liver and urinary organs. GERIMANY.-Dr. Fisches, Government.

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

Ambulance Class. IT Is pleasing to note that an ambulance class, in connection with the Girls' Friendly Society, is to be established in this towrn. Dr. Skiuner has consented to give a course of five lectures, which, judging by the syllabus, should be very instructive indeed, and well worth the small fee charged. It is very necessary and usseful to know how to treat those who have been injured, especially when mI edical aid is not procurable, or where the victim to an accident has to wait a considerable time before professional aid can be given. By the formation of this class an opportunity is now given of ac quiring a knowledge of what to do in cases of accident. We wish the society every success, and hope that as the out come of the lessons given, msany will re ceive instruction that will stand them in good stead in days to come. The follow. ing is an extract from the " Wangaratta Chronicle," which deals with the subject in an admirable mannert "We have seen in the street a group ...

It is just as easy to dodge a bicycle as a carriage." Hobson : " What did your fiancee say when you told her you were dead broke." Dobson (sadly): "She said she was fond of con. sistenoy in all things ; so she broke the en gacement."

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

Love Between Mothers and Daughters, Saysa writer to an American paper, it seems to me that there should be between mothers and daughters, a closer bond of sympathy than exists among the majority. There is love be. tween every mother and daughter, hut that ie not enough. When I meet a girl who says, "Let's not tell mother about our little lark, she won't understand." I'm very sorry for her and wish she could know my mother. I wonder if this girl's mother discourages her little con fidence by unkind criticism, ridicule, or harsh scolding? Certainly mothers should know al ways where and with whom their daughters are; they should guide them carefully in their choice of friends, butin saying this 1 wish to add that I am no advocate of the "sheltered life system" as Kipling aptly terms it. I believe this method is responsible for many of the dis. consolate old maids our villages are postered with. The country town is free indeed that has not more than two of these much-to-be. pitied middl...

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

Plucky ,Women and Midnight Robbers. The householder who is awakened from his first sleep to observe standing by his bedside an up-to-date Bill Sikes, equip ped with a crape mask and armed with a revolver, is usually justified in the con clusion that the odds are against him. When the said householder proceeds to hand over his loose change, his watch and his rine, and then submits to a cross-examination as to the state of his overdraft, everybody understands that these acts are the abnormal offspring of external pressure, not the legitimate chil dren of complaisant generosity. More over, even though he be something of a fighting man, he is not generally blamed for "giving best," as the phrase is, to the person with the shooting-iron. Yet, in view of a couple of recent cases, a suspicion of doubt may be raised as to whether the knuckling-down policy is always the best. The two cases to which we allude are remark able in showing, not the heroic man, but the plucky, determined woman. At...

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

Anthrax. Anthrax (says Professor Axe) is a vege table parasite, rod-shaped and extremely minute. It is regarded as one of the lower fungi, and consists of an elongated mass of vegetable albumen, enclosed in a thin transparent case. This anthrax bacillus possesses marvellous powers of re production, not only in the body of an animal, but also outside, wherever temperature is suitable and mois turo is sufficient. In the blo d the rod-like bacilli multiply by division, each section lengthening, and then in its turn dividing and forming fresh entities, and so on until the dies organisation of the blood and the block ing of vessels cause death. Unfortunately there is no hopeof stamping outanthrax as pleuro-pneumonia or foot-and-monuth disease may be stamped out, because the sources of infection, apart from those of native origin, are not within our con trol.

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

A Premature Funeral Sermon. A curious scene was witnessed recently outside Paddington station. A respectably Sdressed young woman, who had arrived at the terminus from the country, was quietly proeedig inthedirectionof theEdgwareroad when a young man, also respectably dressed, met her, turned pale, and exclaimed, "Oh, Helen, we thought you were dead," and would probably have fallen to the gromund in a fainting condition had not the young woman and sympathetie wayfarers who wit nessed the unusual occurrence assisted him into a temperance refreshment house, where restoratives were obtained. The case (says the "Telegraph") proved to be a strange one. The girl had for some time been a shop assistant at a village on the outakirts of South London, and had there Ineome engaged to the young man. She left her place, and returned to her parents in the country for a holiday. Somehow or other, a report was spread in the village that the girl had suddenly died from influenza, and the news appear...

Abuse of the Eyes. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Abuse of the Eyes. A few words as to the abuse of eyes may not be amies. The first offence in this line is reading with a poor light-requiring the ciliary muscle to do extra work to sharpen the vision. This applies to dim light. twilight, eitting too far from the light, etc. The second offense is error of posture-stoop. ing or lying down congests the eye, besides requiring unnatural work of the eye muscles. Reading on trains is our third offence, the motion causing such fre quent changes of focus and position as to tax the muscle of accommodation as well as the muscles of fixation, so to speak. Reading without needed glasses or with badly fitting ones is our last, but not least, offence. Aside from the various well-known reflex effects of eye strain, the danger of the eye itself is not to be elighted. Eve strain is certainly a factor in produelog disease of almost every part of the eye, its most serious effects beine choroiditls, glan. coma and cataract. Old ago is the time of retri...

POPULAR SCIENCE. About Lime and Lime Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

POPULAR SCIENCE. About Lime and Lime Water. The uses of so homely an article as lime about the household are almost Ionnmerab'e, jest the ordinary lime that one sees the plasterer and the bricklayer use in preparing his pacts of plaster or mortar. Even when reduced to an almost impalpable solution in water it is still efficacious i a remarkable variety of instances. One sees the hodmen on a new building keeptheirdrinking water in a pail that is coated with lime, and one thinks that it is a poor receptacle for the universal beverage. Yet it would not be so good or so pure served in a silver ice pitcher. The lime water of the druegista is indeed nothing more than this solution of the hodmen. A piece of unslaokedlime in a perfectly clean bottle, with cold water poured over it, the bottle corked and kept in a cool, dark place, is a full recipe for lime water. It is ready for use in a few moments after the water is poured on. This lime water has a number of uses, as well as the lime itse...

Bemb-throwing. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Bomb-throwing. There is one remark in the report of the bomb-throwing which we (" Westminister") read, we confess, with some dismay. It is this. The bomb appears to have been in a tin box filled with explosives, which was con cesled beneath a tall hat.'s Now, what are weto do when the tall hat, the very symbol of respectability, can be turned to this in fernal use P Will society submit to a role that all bI.P.'s and strangers shall enter the House of Commons in the deer.stalker that MrKeir Hardie endeavors to make fashionable! Shall the secrets of all hats be revealed by a general search before anyone is admitted to the Palace of Westminster or any Govern. ment office? Even the deer-stalker might contain the sardine-box, which it now seems will suffice for the most devilish operation.

McKenzie's Clifton Station, Darling. ford. Mr. Bruce, rho was a son of Mr. David. *.rpce, of Tyaaka was, a fortnight ago, seized with a .severe attack of inflammation of the lu.gs, which terminated fatally on last Saturday evening. A native of Reedy Creek, he. had lived continuously in the district until six years ago, when he left to take the position he filled at the time of his death. To. those who had the privilege of knowing him intimately, the early decease of Mr. Bruce is a great loss. His. quiet and unassuming manner made him every.. where respected, and, we are informed, that right along the. Big river, from. Enoch's Point to Darlingford, the sorrow of the residents is universal, As a pioneer in rough country, or at station work of any kind, it would be hard. to find the late Mr. Bruce's equal. His re...

GENERAL EXTRACTS. In the course of the interestirg libel action against the British Muecum, Mrs Victoria Woodhull Martin gave (says the report) " a long and voluble answer" about her doctrine of Free Love. "To tell the truth," she said among other things, " I1 never knew that love was any thing else but free." "I know of no love that is bound." Why, asks a Lon don paper, did she not cite Campbell, not the judge, but the poet : Love's wings moult when caged and cap tared, Only free he soars enraptured.
