Cricket. CIGARS AND NON-SMOKERS V. PIPE SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
Cricket. CIGARS AND NON-SMOKERIS '. PIPE SMOKERS. A E;ATCtI between teams rLpresenting the above was played on the recreation ground on Saturday, and resulted in a win for tht. pipe smokers b 537 runs. The fitehng o; bath teams was decidedly bad and epecitally that of the cigars and non smokers. The pleasure of the game was consid-rahly marred owing to an over-indulgence of the barrac'ding element-an element b.d enough in football, but even worse and less excus. ale in cricket.

A GRAIN FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
A GRAIN FLEET. ---o The following is from the " San Francisco Chronicle" of the 6th ult: There is a brightening prospectin shipping circles in anticipation of the fitting out and loading at this port of a number of foreign ships with grain for Europe. Numerous charters, within the last three or four weeks, of vessels that have been laid up at Sausalito, Mlartinez and blis sion Bay from ten months to two years mean the ordering of a very large amount of supplies. These vessels, after discharg ing various cargoes brought here from' different parts of the world, were laid up for want of acharter. Their crews deserted or were discharred. Many of the vessels carried from six to a dozen apprentices, and these lads have in somecases takencareof theirvesselduring the idle time that they have spent here. The regular sailors were not satisfied to thus re main by the vessel and await her going to sea, but came ashore, spent some time in the boarding houses and were shipped coastwise or on deep...
ANGEL DANCERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
. ANCEL DANCERS, . Strangely enough, none of the "angel dancers" in prison at Hackenoeck, N. J., will accept liberty under bail unless the whole party is released (says the " New Yorke Herald.") There is great doubt as to the ability of theproeecution to make out a ease of conspiracy against tLe prisioners. Mean while they continue to speak of themselves as martyrs and to hope for a miracle that will confound the ungodly people of New Jer. soey. It is easy to see how the frowsy, long haired fakirs at the head of the Church of the Living God are able to fuddle and bewitch their followers. They are masters of a style of logic that appeals strongly to inexperienced minds, and when they are cornered by a superior personality they take shelter behind Scriptural quotations that have an impres sive sound, but have nothing to do with the subject. Let us (remarks a " Herald" reporter) take a look at Huntsman T. Mlnason, The Holy One, as he lies in his cell, when I talk through the iron bars ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
In the "Nineteenth Century" Lady Catherine BMilnes Gaskell tells some amusing anecdotes cf a sojourn in the Highlands. The following is rather ap propriate in view of the recenlt proceed mings at Westminster:-Suddenly I turned round, for I heard Tommuuy say in a squeaky voice, which be tried vainly to throw into his boots, "The devil is beat ing his wife." "Hush, hush, Blaster Thomas," Smith-the nurse-answered, in a acandalised voice. "Who taught you such dreadful things ?" " I should say my father," said Tom, attempting to assume the manners of a gentleman at large, and speaking with an off-hand callousness which evidently appeared to himself superb. " I heard that remark from my father," he added. "Your pspa,paMaster Thomas, is a gentleman; but it never does for little boys to copy gentlemen or members of Parliament, was Smith'a crushing retort. Smith was, to a certain extent, wise in her genera tion.
Mutton Hams. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893

Charitable Gush. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
Charitable Gush. An English journal has been exploring the reason why Australian generosity so often breaks out in splendid gifts which put the colder charities of less emotional communities to shame. The London •'Daily Chronicle." after much imedita tion, decides that it is the glowing character of Australian eloquence whichl explatms the surprising scale of Australian beneficence. It has esbumed : the following typical ex ample, : ?plied by " a promi neut public mtan in South Australia," of the sort of appeal which Australian orators at?i jcurnals are accustomed to malke on behalf of local charities, and by which Austiralian pockets are emptied with so much facility : "Are there no ladies in this garden city, where every day the maiden's morning blush is bein kissed by the perfumed breezes fresh from the classic heights of Lofty, who has sufficient independence of character and stability of mind to emulate their American' sisters, and save the many untortunate people who are now s...

Already South Afrian paplers are publishinr accounts of .Mr Bentley's doings in Australia, not for gettine ree..ptiono and fetes at the hands of his Caledonian kinsmen. The admiration for the late Mriharles Dickens that forms a feature in the ? racter of William Todman in Liberty Il would appear to be a re!'rction of the pl? ight's feelings towards the popular nove t, Mr " It.

Painted Jezebels. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893
Painted Jezebels. "A Painted Jezebel!" Who says it ? A stranger, of course, else he would have knoon the lady is the daughter, sister, or wife of some well-known citizen, a man entitled to some consideration, though he may not have travelled with a retinue free on our railways, or committed otherlaches that we look for amongst those to whom first consideration socially is due; or, again, he may have done all that could be wished for in this and other ways, played mountebank to European audiences, presented the "gir-ruls" and their mother at Court. Thus here he is regarded as one of the elect socially, and his women folk, if no better, are certainly no worse, than the average, a position from which they derive much com fort, for it is when a woman, owing to vir tue, beauty or talent, is above-even just a tiny bit above-or, owing to lack of virtue and discretion, is just a wee, wee bitbelow the average woman, and her idea of what another woman may and should be, that she is singled ou...
