PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

PLAIS AND PLAYERS The recent lamented death of Mladame Patsy, just after responding to an encore, has in some quarters been construed that the encore act2allycausedherdeath."Killed by an Encore" is tho sensational heading under which one London journal advances thisview, whilst a prominent dramatic reciter has written to the London " Times." anggeetin¢ that encores and recalls should be for: bilden by the County Council. In the late Madame Patsy a case, according to those who are acquainted with the circunmtances, the deceased lady was not in a fit state of health to sing on the particular evening, and, more. over, she had had a nasty fall just before appearing. The abolitioi of encores and recalls wontuld certainly not be appreciated by artists them selves. Both vocalist and actor live, so to speak, by applause, the crowning point of which is an encore. Mr John Hare will produce at the Hay market Theatre, London, on the withdrawal of Caste, a new piece by "George Fleming," the nove...

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Mle)bourue Letter. [BY ouR owN CORR$Sg?ONDoeT.J 'ire juvenile hero of Sunday school fiction, the ' good little boy "-who is invariably sacrificed at an early period pf his existence, in order to point a moral for his surviving companions-is always pictured as devoting big slices of his holidas, partly to deeds of benevolence and partly to self-imposed tasks that earn' him the praise" of parents and teachers. He is never at a loss for pbjects upon which to lavish his kindness. Hie gets up at daybreak to chop Widow B3rown's firewood, and he sits up when all the household are snoring, to knit a warm woolen cap for Daddy Poolittle's deaf ears. And yet ever busied thus for others, he finds time to polish off a pile of extra lessons so that when school re-assembles he may still occupy and retain his proud position as head of his class. In like manner, hubbling over with philanthropy of 'the highest order, the members of the Victorian Govern ment have devoted the days of their long vacatio...

Home and Fireside. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Home and Fireside. Bluna.--The true physiological method of treating burns or scalds is to at once exclude the air with cotton batting, flour, scraped potato, oaroith, white of an egg, pasta or anything that is most quickly obtained. To Bonn Holte L' OLG?s.-- Dieolve camphor in turpentine until the turpentine will not take op any more. If the glass is laid on a perfectly flat surface, and the solution is freely used as a lubricant, holes can be bored in the glass with almost any hard steel tool. WASireS FOI THE HAIs.-The effect of spirit is to dissolve the natural lubricants out of the hair and scalp, which in certain cases may be a very legitimate proceeding, but t is always well to moisten the hair with some artificial lubricant, such as glycerine, or olive oil, or oil of almonds to keep the hair from becom iog too brittle and dry. Spirit of rosemary contains 98 per cent. of rectified spirit, and yet it forms as much oas one-half of one of the best of hair stimulants; therefore t ...

Ladies' Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Ladies' Gossip. There are at present ten young ladies studying medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stock. holm, and it is evident that Swedish ladies more and more go in for medicine as a profes. sion. The two daughters of Alma Tadema have united their talents, one with the pen, the other with the pencil, to produce a love story, which is first of all, to be run through "Iarper's 1legazine," and leave the minds of the readers inan agreeable state of expectancy. The Contess of Bective, who has for so long taken a deep interest in the question of improv ing the eondition and promlino the prosperity of the Irish people through the development of rural industries, is presiding over the arrange. meatn for an Arts and Crafts Exhibition to be eld at Kirkby Lounsdale early in August, when aspecial feature will be a deportment devoted exclusively to the display of Irish worlk.

Cheddar Cheese. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Cheddar Cheese, Professor Sheldon says: During a period which is confined within the limits of half a century, the Cheddar system has won for itself a reputation which may be called cosmopolitan. Prior to the time (1861) when the late Joseph Harding of Somerset, introduced it into Scotland, where now it is extensiveiy employed, it was practised to very small extent, save in two or three of the southern counties in England. It is now made in many counties in Great Britan, and in various continental countries; it is the predominent, and almost only system in the United States and Canada, and has taken fim root in Australia and New Zealand. Of no other system can so much be said. It has proved its adaptability everywhere, nd the scope of its influence will go on expanding. As the Shorthorn is among cattle, so is the Cheddar among cheeses. On any soil, and in every climate where it has had a fair trial, its success has been complete. I have seen it in various American and Canadian facto...

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

EUREKA. (By the Rev. T. J. Ryder. Awarded first prize in the Hibernian Society competition for a poem on the subject). Men came with hearts of hope and pitched their tents Across the ranges of the trackless bush, Driving the silence northward to the plains. They wrought and wrested from the stubborn earth Her stores of gold, smiling at Want and Care. Then came stern faces frowning Freedom down— Commissioners with arbitrary powers, And force to harry all the busy field With licence-hunting, till black blood was made, And men, treated like brutes, showed rage as brutes. The savage natures stirred the milder up, Revolting at the burden and the shame ; For it was open scandal to the Crown That honest toil was forced to pay a fee Exorbitant for right to earn its bread. The law smote men upon the sweating face With whips of scorpions. Were they wretched slaves That brother men should shoot and fiercely hunt, And ride them down with armed horse and force ? The freeborn to produce a paper r...

Flogging a Priest [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

Flogging a Priest o0 - The Bishop of Segovia some time ago dis covered (saye the Mladrid Correspondent of the "'Daily News' ' that his dean, Don Andres Gomez, a learned priest and the author of many works, besides pro fessing Republican ideas had belonged for thirty years to a local lodge of Freemasons. Many influences were set at work to decide this divine to make public abjuration of Freemasonry and his political opinions. When he consented, the recanting Driest was taken solemnly by several priests and friars to the official residence of the Bishop, where he admitted, before an ecclesiastical notary and other officials, the truthofthe information lodged against him by aCarmelitefriar, his confessor. After he had abjured his errors, expressed regret, and sworn on the Gospels and the Crucifix his repentance, abso lute submission, and faith in the Catholic doctrine, he was led into an inner room, his upper garments taken off, and the Bishop flogged him over the shoulders, whilst the...

A Perilous Baloon Voyage [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

A Perilous Baloon Voyage I. Latruffo, who went up in a balloon at Coarbevoie, outside Paris, and who was sup posed to be lost, has succeeded in safely reach. ing firm earth. His ascent was to have been a short one, but he had no sooner reached the upper air than he was carried away in a north.westerly direction. He descended with much diffilculty at a little place called Beanvarde, between Chateau Thierry and Epernay, in the Champagne district. He had thus travelled eighty miles in three-quarters of an hour. H. Lstruffe considers that if he had thrown out ballast he wouldhave been carried into Luxembourg. He escaped with only a few scratches from trees and brambles; but he states that for some moments he gave himself up for lost, as he was dragged along the ground for the space of six miles in the bush. The peasants at Beauvarde assisted him to land, and organised a fete in honor of his escape.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

In a leading articleof the London "Times" we read :-" The ineffective demonstration in HydePark yesterday, upon the one recent action of the Peers to which he ventures to take exception, will hardly, etc." The report, however, runs as feollows :-" Seldom, if ever has Hyde Park been more crowded than it was at yesterday's demonstration ..... The concourse was prodigious, and the time occupied by the procession in entering the park was so great that contingento were still arriving, &0. From the point of view of mere numbers, it must be admitted that the orga nisers of the demonatration achieved a great suoees." That is the beauty of the "Times."

Division of the Shire into Ridings. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

Division of the Shlre into. Ridings. A MovnOas .Tn is on foot, which, judging from the enthusiasm with which it has. been taken tip, i+ certan quarters, bids fair to supply something for the electors of the Shire to think over shortly., It is the division of the Shire into ridings, and has arisen fromn the idea which the resi-. dents of Broadford have that the town ship has been neglected. It is proposed to divide the shire into two or three rid. ings, one riding being the township. and that portion of the district adjoining,.andi the other riding or ridings to,be. the re.. mainder of the ohire now attended, to.by the Broadford Shire Council. The maxim upon which the originators of the. movement apparently go as-'"Shoatme, the township and I will show you the disn. trict, and that first impressionsare best.'" That the township, can be improved no, one will seriously deny, but the question. is merely one of money, and the pro,. moters of the ridings movement complain that Broad(brd a...

The Office of Premier. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

/iTe Office or Premier. 5 - o The resignation of Mr Gladstone of the post of Prime Minister will serve to coneen tratethe attention of students of the English Constitution on the practical workings of an'institution which has been designated by~ Mr Gladstone himself an "unique creation." The written law knows nothing whatever of the Prime Minister. It simply knows him as a member of one or other House of Parliament, as a Privy Conneillor, or as a holder of a certain office such as the First Lordship of the Treasury. The best description of the position of an English Prime Minister is given by the illustrious statesman who now vacates that great office. Mr Gladtane, writing in the "North American Review" for September, 1878, thus explains to the people of the United States the status of the British Premier : "' Departmentally, he is no more than the first named of five persons by-whoma jointly the powers of the Lord Treasurership are taken to be exercised; ie is not their master nor,...

Glenaroua. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

Glenarcua. :o: [FRObM OUR OWN CORRa?erSNDENT.' GENERAL satisfaction is expressed locally at the very satisfactory condition of the Broadford butter factory. The payment of a td. per gallon on milk supplied in the winter months has not given entire satisfaction, it being asserted that during those months the suppliers got a good price for their milk, while it may be said the factory had little profit, if any. The low price given for milk during the spring months is mainly the cause of the sub stantial credit balance, and it is main tained that the persons who helped to make the money should have shared in the bonus. A young man namedV Wm. Fleming had rather a sensational adventure a few days ago. He was engaged carting posts along the edge of a precipice or bank of 'Mollison's Creek. Young Fleming when backing the horse, by some means got over the edge, horse, dray and all being precipitated into the creek below, a dis tance of 5o or 6n feet. Luckily the place is filled up with sand ...

Mr Sutton Vane, the young dramatist who is generally regarded as the probable snucessor of the late Mr Henry Pettitt, as a melodramatic writer, has achieved a decided success with his piece, The Cotton King, at the Adelphi Theatre, London. On the opening night the play occupied more than four hours in representation, yet at the termination the large audience present re mained to honor the author with a call. The new drama is retarded as a very strong one, and calonulated to secure an extended run.

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

Reedy Creek. :o: [FPaBt O Ca OW CORRESPONDENT.] IT is currently reported that some Bendigu speculators intend purchasing the machinery.from the Doyles reef, for the purpose of placing it on :he Queen Victoria line of reef. There is no doubt that if machinery were placed on this mine and operations carried on -at a deeper level than hitherto reached, fresh shoots of gold would be struck. A gentleman from Bendigo has taken a sample of pyrites from the Golden Gate mine, and if he is satisfied with assay results, he intends placing an So-head battery on the Reedy Creek which would be a great boon to pros pectors, who could then get their quartz crushed for the sum of 4s. per ton. A meeting is to be held at Kilmore this week to consider the question. The Langringe party are going to crush 13 loads of quartz from their mine this week, when good results are expected.

Puckapunyal. .:O: [FROM OUR OWN COBRBSPONDENT.] THE cricket match which was played here last Saturday between Stoney Creek and Puckapunyal, resulted in an easy win for Stoney Creek. the latter thus winning the rubber. Puckapunyal havy. ing a fairly representative team and win ing.the toss elected to bat, but were all disposed of for the very poor score of 33 runs. After the. usual interval Stoney Creek took possession of the wickets, and despite the frequent change of bowling were not disposed of until within three minutes of call of time, and had put together the respectable total of 91 runs. With two or three exceptions the fielding of the local men was of a very low order, numerous catches being missed in the field. It was suggested by the bad boy that they should in future carry a bag. It is to be hoped that next season our men will practice more and then perhaps they may pull off a win. After the match both teams adjourned to Mr. Gilbert's house, where refreshments was served w...

A Pulpit View of Cricket [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 4 May 1894

A PflpitiV wnf. O islars. - --O - In his sermonatScots' Church, Melbourne on Sunday evening, the Rev. Alexander Marshall thus alluded to a great popular sport: As to cricket, there is very little with which the most critical censor can find fault. Comparatively speaking, very little betting is done in connection with cricket, and what is d:ne springs more from local and partisan feeling than from the solid greed of the gambler. On the cricket fiela~testing i. orifrom. ?einethe huge and portentous evil that it is on the racecourse. So far as it does exist, it exists -if I may so put it-within manageable bcunds; and ere the evil becomes worse and stronger, I would wake an earnest appeal to all young men who favor this sport-a sport in which I believe the very flower of our Victorian youth find a healthy exercise and a manly training-I would appeal to them to discourage and discountenance all gambling in connection with their fine national game. As in football so in cricket, there is a...
