For best descriptions which were sparingly repre sented, the demand was fairly sustained. Prime choice lots of merino wethers realized full prices.

Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 January 1892
Strath Creek. -0 (FROP r OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] QuTra recently the Education Depart ment removed all the turnitnre from the Good Templars' Hall, which they had rented for school purposes. It strikes one as a very absurd proceed ing to close the Stratlj school with an average attendance of 10, and leave open the Kerrisdale school which has a daily attendance of only about three. Our creamery is finished at last, but there appears to be some trouble in getting a cream-separator. The build ing adds greatly to the attractiveness of our little town. Surprise parties are just now the order of the dayhere. A very success ful one took place at Mr. A. Forbes's last week, hearly 40 persons putting in an appearance. Dancing and singing and all sorts of games were kept going till daylight the next morning. Dur ing the evening Mr. J. dMcCunner rendered several comic songs in good style. Everyone returned home so well satisfied that some other house holder is to be deprived of his rest some nigh...

Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 January 1892
Spring iallcy. :o: [ROS ounR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] It will be remembered that a gold bearing dyke formation was discovered on the Pheasant Creek alout the, middle of December, when a number of ainers set to work upon the large body of material in which the metal was found deposited. Ever since that time the interest has been well sustained and during the last week an eagerly anticipated crushing took place at the works of the Ti-tree mine near Yea, when from the three tons crushed 21 ozs. per ton was the average yield. This information has had a mosts ex citing influence upon those engaged, and upon a large number of others in terested ; the effect of which has been that a great rush to the diggings has. recently taken place from all adjacent localities, and the ground covering the formation has been pegged out by en terprising persons over an area of a mile from the scene of operations. It is at present very uncertain as to the actual extent of the wash, but the ma terial is so easil...

Correspondlence. FOOT-BRIDGE O?I E\'EI. CtOSSING. [TO THE LuITO.) SIR,-I would like to draw the attention of the Commissioner of railways to the great inconvenience experienced by the. inhabitants and travellers journeying to and from the South side of the railway station at Broad lord from the circuitous character of the path, which necessitates a walk of a quarter of a mile in order to get to the platform which is but a hundred yards away. Bly simply continuing the already existing cross ing at the North end of the platform by a few steps cut ioto the platform on the wood siding, with a turn style in the fence of the reserve directly opposite, a short and excellent road could be made at a slight cost, to the great convenience of those of us who have almost hourly business at the rail way station, as well as to the public generally.
