HUNTERS, HACKNEYS, and PONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892

IIUNTEItS, HACKNEYS, and PONIES. This class proved the most attractive in the show, close upon 15o entries being made in the various sections. Out of 16 t1-stone hunters 9 entered the ring. The jumping was good all round, the fences-S in num her-being taken almost faultlessly. The judges were a long time arriving at a de cisron, and finally placed Vowels first The ('row second, and Propensity third. The decision gave a deal of dissatisfaction, it being genrrally conceded by the public that Ilrightlight was the best hunter. So dis satisfied was the owner, that he refused to compete for the high jump. This was won by W. II. Budd, of \Walian, with a fine up. standing bay horse, who cleared sft 4in. M'DIugall's The Crow was second, and T. Brouk's horse third. Ilackneys were largely represented. Only two trotters in, saddle entered the ring, out of 9 entries. This was owing to the judging taking place early in the day, several of the exhibitors failing to hear the call of the stewards, w...

STARTING A BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892

STARTING A BANK. I am thinking of starting a bank. I see by the published reports concern ing the Anglo.Australian that a bank may be established and conducted fr a time in quite a flourishing fashion with a preliminary subscription, in cash, of only £:C7 10s. That fact en courages me to set about the enter prise. HIavin, a bank of your own is, perha;ls, ostentatious, but when one is to, be had so cheap it seems stupid to do without. And then the business is sinple. No stock-in-trade required Ibyond a broad counte-, a few desks, account books and ink bottles. The commodity sou deal in is " brass," and the supply of that article is generally equal to the demand. One great fea ture of the new school tof banking is, as it seems to nimp, the off,-r f temrit. ing iiteres s on d.tposits. A pound or two per cent. higher than the regular rate may he relied on to attract a crowd of detositore, and as long as these continue to pay in :,nd do not want to draw out, no safer or lmo:e re Imutneat...

Punjabee Well-Jumpers and Krooboy Divers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892

.IrT'oobo it tws, s. liY I'IIOI.AR Sri Ptws., Eleven nmiles out of Jieli, the nld capital of the eMogul umpire, in what is low Ilritish India, is the Koetub Mlinar. said to be the tallest minaret in the world. The Kootub is one of the things that everybody goes to see who visits that part of India. Mly bicycle journey around the world took me through Delhi; and having to wait over a few days while I obtained some photographic apparatus from Calcutta, I thought I would ride out one day and see the Kootub. When I arrived there I discovered that the minar, tall and beautiful though it was, was not the only extraordinary sight to be seen in the neighborhood. While looking bhout at the ruins after oomting down froms the tall mtonu. ment, four boys, fron twelve to sixteen years of age, came racing up, and bowed their heads ahlmost to the ground in a low salaam. They were naked, except foe a big turban on their heads and a breech-cloth about their waists. T'leir shiny bronze skins fairly g...

Fancy Work. DECORATED CLOTHES PINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892

P'aul cy llosr. DECORATED CLOTHIE PINS. The small sized old-fashioned wooden clothes pin is used. This is first covered with a ground of paint, either bright or dark. according to taste, and then adornred with a delicate spray of leaves and flowers. One with a Nile-green ground, derated with a miniature garland of dark holly leaves and scarlet berries. Another with a pale pink ground is further beautified by the tiny blossoms of the bluet forget-me.-not. These decorated clothes pins are used as napkin holders, and, to say the hiast, are somewhat of a relief front the moIlllotous ring es peeC ally when the latter is a poor imitation of something which it is not. With dainty fringed napkins the etmet of these simple ornaments is very good. The napkin should be folded in a triangular form, so the two fringed edges will be outward. P'uth the third, or plain edge. Lack ito, thit fork of the pin. The whole appearatnce thetn is that of a white or variegatI d throe cornered fan with a gay-f...

What the Ungskilled Applaudelte-Let a woman whose sole gift lhes in a voice of unusual compass, force out the G or F of the lower octive until it bedomes more like the groaning of an invalid than a musical tone, or let her squeak out the F in the third ledger line until it sounds as beautiful as the cry of a pet lap dog on whose toes some one has stepped, and it will eullies to fill the hall with enthusiastio plaudits. Another songstress, who may be able to sing the simplest melody without giving one the cramps, and whose warmth approaches the temperature of a Canadian iceberg, will perhaps display a flexibility of voice to rival that of an instrument. WYhen she sets up her fireworks and rockets in the form of scales, in sixteenths, and pierces one's tympanum with her infernal trills, with awful persistency and without taking breath, we may rest assured that the barquet will spring up from its seat and howl in eostacy.

An Ode To The Modern Waltz. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 2 December 1892

An Ode To The Modern Waltz. 'Tis a kind of mild gyration, 'Tis the "3'ilitary Waltz ;" A sort of siariclhefiuisre, mixed With solme very sudden halts, As your partner, vainly striving To revolve, is forced to stop ; And your manly atrl is aching, And you're nearly fit to drop; While tile moments are so melting, Anld you can't account at all, For the pl?derous persisteone Of the "Fairy " of the ball Her weight is but a trifle, If she steps uponi the .scle; She looks so like a Zephyr That you crowd on every sail' With it feeling of elatioln, With ai conseiousness of power, You go, fotr tweinty yar?is ait least, At forty knots an hour; IBut a deadly dnil is o -'ou, And, alas! your dleamt is false, F'or yout fild you ihave to Wreftle With the "'lilitary Waltz:" This Waltz, whlich isnt Wtaltzi?, But a dnrary dull parade Of itUltlomatonl-lilik fiulres, Looking somanewhat ' vlady--mosde " As they zig-zag, slide anid ehtil, Tuni round twice, and then appear As if they "rsally ]h?ld to stopl...
