A New Ministry. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
A New Ministry. The re-construction of the Cabinet was practically decided upon yesterday, when Mr. Munro intimated to several of his colleagues that he was prepared to accept the Agent-Generalship. Mr. ShWils stated his willingness to become Premier and undertake the re-construction of the Cabinet, and hie lost no time in having a chat on the subject with those of his col leagues who were at their departments. Mr. Shiels will be Premier, Treasurer, and Attorney-General; but in all pro bability Mr. Turner. the Commissioner of Customs. will relieve him of the last. named portfolio. Mr. Shiels will relin. qinish control of the RIailway Department where Mr. Wheeler will aisume command in addition to retaining his present posi. tion of Minister of Public W\orks.

Brazilian Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
israziliantl W nmlrn. . Socihty in Brazil is divided into three dis tic;t claoes--the aristocrats, the middle and lower classes. The ladies of the upper class are undeniably pretty. They havs raven black hair, white teeth, and perfect forms ; and if it were not for toe enormous amount of plaster-of.paris enamel with which they cover their feces they might havt lovely, creamy comple;iones But their wondrous eres are the chief and never ending harm ; large, dark, lustrous and full of cxpresiton, throwing more meaning into a single glance than an bour's convereation could possibly convey; for, though attracting and captivat lng in their simplicity and grace, they may not be able to write a single sentence cor rectly-for the education of women is not considered essential to their happiness. They learn embroidery and music indiffer ently, and spend their lives in rocking chairs and hammockes, never reading a book o! any description. The girls are very fond of their dells, tak ing them wh...

LONG AGO. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
LON) AGO. By N . .Lowater. Thirty-five year ego to-night was my bridaleve. I suppse each lover believes the maiden of his choid to be "' queen rose of the rose-bad garden of irls," so I will not bore you with a prolosged description of sweet Emeline F;anklin. it seems to me, though, that she was the learest and loveliest of created beings. Emelino was an orphan; her home had been for years with an uncle and his wife, who, being childleet, loved her as their own, and had carefully lept intact all her modest patrimony for a marriage portion. A wedding at that time was lees a thing of ceremony end more an occasion of genuine rejoicing than it is now, and all her near re latives and a few intimate eehool-girl friends were already assembled in the large, old. fashioned farm-houes for the ceremony, and the feativities which were to follow later. I was there also, having arrived that day from my own home some thirty miles away It was nearing the hour for retiring.when one vivaciouse young ...
Gentic Gymnasis. The Means by which Women may become Muscular. Simple Instructions for the Guidance of Members of the Fair Sex who are desirous of Developing their Muscles. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
The Means by which Women may le. come IeMucular. Simple Instructions for the Guidance of Miembecs of thl:e Fair Sex waio aro de sirous of Developing their Muscles. L'ght gymnastics embrace the use of dumo bells, bar-bells, Indian, clubs, wands., hoops and exercises without anything what ever in the hands. Marching, deep breath ing movements, poising, stretching and equilibrium exercisee, all of which have in a great measure grown out of the Delsarte sys tem, also come, under the general term, light gybmnaties. The beneficial results of all these are many and varied. Iardly anyone is too weak for gymnastic. Gentle maessage will start the muscles and send the blood into healthy cir culation. Then the patient should help her self. One of the advantages of light gym nastics is that the si?:e and convalescent can make what appear to be trifling efforts, and by them, in time, be restored toactivehealth. If too feeble to be practically able to make but little exertion, try what are known a...
The Kilmore Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
The Iilinore IIospltul. LBY OUR OW.V REPORTER] Ever since the Year A.D. 370 when the Roman Emperor Valens erected the first recorded hospital at Caesarea, they have multiplied as the home of surgery and the healing art, until to-day the imposing structures dedicated to their use in every great city are very justly the pride of their generous and voluntary supporters. Indeed, on the subject of the special claims of the hospital to our regard, it were, I suppose, a gross piece of impertinence on the part of anyone at this time of day to greatly enlarge. Their absolute ne cessity and their work of bcenificence is so apparant that we all vie with each other in shouting their praises; though if the deficits in yearly balance sheets, the reports which speak of mortgaged hospital furniture, and the stories of limited usefulness through straitened ex chequers are to be relied upon, it may be imagined that those public spirited in. dividuals who hold themselves respon;ible for keeping up the...
Wandong. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
Waudong. -o---. [PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONODENT.] TIIE Christmas and New Year'sholidays passed without anything transpiring of a very special character, and things have resumed quite an ordinary ap pearance. Work has been resumed at the timber drying sheds of MIr. Robertson, and also a' the terra cotta works. The annual school picnic takes place tomorrow, on Mr. Munro's paddock at Merri Merri, and should the day be fine there is every prospect of a large company being present. A bush fire broke out in a paddock belonging to Mr. Gordon, but with the exception of a quantity of grass being burnt there was no serious damage. After a week's hot, and sultry weather a welcome change came on Friday, when a severe thunderstorm burst over the neighborhood, which must undoubtedly be productive of much good. Locusts are now making their pre sence felt, though they are not numer ous as great pains were taken to destroy their eggs last year.

The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1891. Shire Work and Shire Finance. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
U81 1ronndford l ?otire AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1891. Shire Work and Shire Finance. IT is quite obvious to those who have but a superficial acquaintance with the Shire of Broadford, that there exists, and has long existed, a feeling of strong dissatisfaction among ratepayers generally in regard to local public ex penditurie in relation to local public that Shire nimonnies are not expended most advantageously to the ratepaycrs ; for it is comiplained that almost all the local revenue is swallowed up in the cost of spending it. There is unhap pily all too much reason for this con tention; but the fact is not to be met with merely passive discontent : rather with honest, candid enquiry, and by the adoption of some remedy. if a remedy there may really be. Physi sicians can never be said to rationally treat a disease unless they know the seat of the disorder and its underlying cause; and it may be said that to hurl vehement and sweeping condemnat...

BERTRAM MORTON'S BONDAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
BERTRAM MORTON'S BONDAGE. It was te? hours after his arrival in Lon don that Bertram Morton received the letter which set him free. A few minutes before it was placed in his hand, he had said to his friend, Mr Chal. lie, " If cl as if I wee ? going to my own fo. neral, John."' And Mr Challis kI d answered Yeou could not noak more serious if you were, Bertram. T .nderstand you have come home to marry tsat girl?' " Yes," with a painfuol gloom in his voice. And that was the peculiar nature of Bert ram Morton's bondage-an obligation to bestow his hand where his heart was not. It was an odd story. He was the only son of wealthy parents, who had died when he was a child,leaving him to the guardianship of his Uncle Fenton, then residingina quiet Hampshire village. The boy in time came to love his uncle as thoroughly, perhaps, as ever he could have done his own father, had the latter lived. Nevertheless, Mr Fenton was a very eccentric man-everybody said so; even his wifedeclared he was as "...
Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
Reedy Creek. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] BY an unfortunate accident Mr. Gen. Balmer recently sustained the loss of a valualle cow. The animal-for which he hal paid £10 while grazini in the neighborhood fell into one of the msany digger's pits around; and tlhough it was stimulated with bee- and every effort made to release it, recuurse had ultinmately to be made to a rifle. A very plucky tfet was prrfrmred by a local lady, Mrs. S. Simes, on Christmas Day. She was Ipassing through the kitchen when slte was horrified to see a large black snake drawing its sely length menacingly along the floor. Without losing nerve she fetched a gun and in less time than it takes to pen the fact had snet his infernal majesty to HIwles by a dose of straight lead. New Year's Day passed off here with its customary quietness, but very pleasantly. Most of the residents went to ,ee the cricket snatch played between Strath and Reedy Creeks, in a meadow of Mr. G. Blalmers about a mile front the township. Th'...
Management of Horses. The Will and Not the Strength of the Animal Should be Conquered. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 8 January 1892
Management of Horses. --+++- The Will and Not the Strength of the Animal Should be Conquered. Firmness, kindness and patience are three of the essential elements in the make. up of anyone who is a success in handling horses. Without the fires a man would naturally be a failure. The condition of a borse when under the subjection of man is unnatural, although no domestic animal submits to its ourroundings more gracefully and carefully. To control him perfectly, the one doing it most be master of the situation under all circumstance. A firm man will prevent disasters where a faint one would fail. When a horse is to be brought under subjection it most be done by conqueringhis will and not his strength. II would be a dismal failure if the reverse were true. As to the second element, kindness, the more of this the better. No horse has ever been epoiled or injured by kind treatment. There is no animal upon the mind of which kind. ness will make a greater impression than upon that of the ho...

cýh&` ýro 4uor4 xouvica , AND REEDY CREEK TIMes. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY Is, I8gt. The State and the Unem ployed. TnE Melbourne Trades' Hall Council passed a very significant resolution at its:ordlinary-wekly meeting laetPriday night. ,It was the outcome of a com plaint made by the Secretary of a labor society at Footscrav, in which it was stated that at the opening of some Go vernment works in that locality a few days previous, over 1,000 men sought employment where bet about 80 were required, and that had there been any Press intimation the number of appli cants would have been atleast doubled. This led to a somewhat languid but decided discussion when the Council came to the conclusion that the relief of the unemployed is the duty of the Government ; and that the only way to raise the dormant State executive to a practical recognition of this, was to secure at the next general election, the return of labor representatives. This, of course. is no new featur...
