,:o: Shearing was finished at lrlowerdaleyes terday week. Cattle are now improving in condition but prices are very low. The cold winds of the past few days have parched up the grass on the hills throughout the district. The milk supply at the Flowerdale creamery reaches between 500 and 6co gallons per day. Shearing will probably be finished at Mr. iH. G. Carver's, King Parrot Creek, during the next few days. The Glenburn shed is expected to cut out either to-day or tomorrow. Operations have been delayed owing to bad weather. MIr. K. Green was the successful tenderer for the lease at the Ferndale Estate, Strath Creek, at a rental of 4s. 7d. per acre per The township of Yea, notwithstanding the prevailing depression, continues to make steady progress. During the past few months a number of new shops have been erected, and the picturesque little town presents quite a busy appearance. A couple of persons met with painful accideets at Strath Creek last week. Mr. Horn was engaged in chop...

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1892. The Treasurer and the Deficit. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 December 1892

AND REEDY CRERK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1892. The Treasurer and the Deficit. WE are all of us familiar with the story of the boy who was the fortunate possessor of a goos- that laid a golden egg every day. He was a greedy boy and soon found that one egg was not enough. He wanted an unlimited supply of the eggs all at once, so he killed his goose in order to get at them-forgetting that the stowage capacity inside the valuabte bird was somewhat circumscribed. Unmindful of the lesson which that boy's ignorant act teaches those who care to learn and profit by it,'there are not wanling proofs that SIR GAnAsu Bannr has done that which will prove just as disastrous to us as that lad's act did to him. The youngster stopped his daily supply of gold, and SmI GnAnas, although he has not quite stopped ours, has been eminently successful in reducing the quantity. And if we take into account the youth and ignorance of the owner of the goose, and set against them the yea...

Juatiyieag at the ,;i..., Fair. l'ce scale upon which the exhibition of cattle at the World's Pair at Chicago is to be carried on is a matter of in terest to Australians. We hear a good deal froni time to time in this colony regarding! the merits of the general purpose cow, but the Americans have. apparestli, recognised the futility .f elndeavoritg to combine beef and milk producingqunlities in the same animal. and consaluently at Chicago there is to be an intire selaration of the covws which ardmatrons ot. m Ik herds and those wh:bh are matrons of beef herds. The old tIme method of judging dairy cattle by the eye is to be entirely abandonml, and the milk alone is to be the sour of merit. Cows giving milk may commete tinder three heads.

Intercolonial Federation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 December 1892

irttercolonial Fcuneratioa. .:o: Evinr week brings additional evidence of the .rogress which is being made in the direction of intercolonial federation, and it is clear (says thet writer of " The Colonies" artictie in the Tim's) that all the Australian colnies are more or less preparing tor a new conierence at which some practical conclusions way be reached. . . . Two items of news which have come to hand luring the past fto tnih' illustrate the urgency of this question of intercolonial federa tion. Lord Knutsford, before leaving office, had suggested the desirabilty of mlak,g arranements by which the returns of imports and exports through out the empire should be made on some uniform basis. The suggestion is an admirable one. The returns male by the various governments of the world are nuow raw material out of which statisticians manufacture theories relating to the trade and corummerce and Ihe general well being of the world and of the c, ntmunities that compose it. But at prsentt...

Kilmore Sews. Some cases of housebreaking have lately been reported-an unusual occur rence in this otherwise well-conducted district. Nothing very serious in the way of stealing, was, however, perpetra ted, a side of pork from a local bacon curer being the most serious that we have heard of. The Kilmore Dairy Co. directors are negotiating for the erection of refrigerat ing appliances at the factory. The carry ing out of the work will necessitate some alteration in the building, but the cost of said alteration will not be very great The refrigerating machinery will cost about £400, and the cost of chemicals for working same will be trifling. The retiring directors of the Kilmore Dairy Company were re-elected at a meeting held on Saturday. The follow ing was the ballot :-- . Hlunt, 202; J. Clancy. 187; FH. Louie, 168; T. J. Rush, 165 ; M.

Reedy CreeK. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A VERY rich reef has been discovered by Messrs. Liddell and laren. the well known l'onstall Dyke prospectors, in the neighborhood of the Langridze line of reel. and by experts is considered to be a continuation of same. The prospects are excellent, as much as an ounce of gold being washed from a dikh of quartz. A number of claims have been pegged out along the line. Messrs. Shaw and part) are putting through a crushing of mullock from the Gulden Gate. The Crown claim is lying idle, pending the deci-ion of the Minister of Mines re Farrell's application to have the Lang ridge lease forteited for non-comphlance of the labor covenants. At the resent Warden's court this lease was recom mended to Farrell, but the \Varden's decision has been appealed against by the Groan Company, on the ground that at the time of Farrell's application they were negotiating an amalgamation with the Langridge Company.

The Veterinarian The Nature and Treatment of Milk Fever. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 December 1892

The Veterhiarian. the Nature and Treatment of Milk Fever. Milk fever has recently been shown to de. pend on embolism or blocking of cerebro- 1 pinal vessels with fat globules elaborated in undue amount in the bodies of thriving, countiful dairy cows. This view satisfao torily explains the phenomena of the suendden onEet of the disease, the rapid recoveries which frequently take place, the notable symptoms, the paralysis which sometimes remains as a sequel, and the po..rmortemn sp. peurarces, Fatty embolism is evidently a condition most prone to occur at the critical, period, when a large volume of blood is being diverted to the production of milk, and es. pecially if this secretion is from any cause Interfered with. I t thre becomes clear enouch why thriving cows in good condition, which Jluring two or three peevioua summers have freely filled the pail, are the victims of this apoplectic seizure, and, moreover, why good butter cows are more subject to attack than eood cheese.making ...

How To Fry Liver. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 9 December 1892

SHow To Fr) Liver. The lircr from a calf is cornsidere by epicures the Cfnest and best. It is not a-t. ways to be obtained. Beef liver i considered the next best, and is now kept by a.! rood butchers. Beef liver is generally fried in slices about half an inch thick. A few slices of salt pork fried with it give it a delicious flavor. When the liver is put into the pan to fry without any previous preparation it is quite inclined to stick and conerqo;ent!ly burn.
