GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893

GENERAL EXTRACTS. At a time whcn the Brazilian air is full 1 of bomb-shells and bullets and the like, it is interesting tohear that "the domestic I servant difficulty in Brazil appears to be on the increase. A British consular report I from Hlio Gr.ndedo Sul tells us that not 1 per cent, of the male o: female servants will sleest in their master's house. They insist on leaving at the latest by seven o'clock in the evening, and will not return before seven or eight in thu morning. For this reason, it seems, some houses have a pane of glass in one of the windows taken out, through which the baker and mnilkuian pass their goofs on their early morning rounds without troubling a moem bor of the family to get up and open the door. It is said to be quite coummon fora good cook to insist on the fanuly dining not later than i o'clock in order that she may be able to put the kitchen in order and go hone early." There are at good many paunes of glass out of Brazilian wnundows just sow, and pos...

THE BRITISH NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 29 September 1893

THE BRITISH NAVY. The return of that most capable and enthu esiastic sailor, Lord Charles Beresford, and the Sterrible catastrophe which has recently oc erred in the fleet in which he last t held a command, have created an interest I in naval aflairs which is-rightly or wrongly --somewhatunusual. However that maybe, people (says the "Westminuster Gazette") stirred bylate events, are asking themselves very serioneusly what would be our con dition in time of war if in the piping times of peace such tragedies occur. As Lord Charles Bereeford himself has well said, "A panic in time of peace is bad enough, but a panic in time of war would be fatal." His remarks, therefore, upon the present condition of our Navy, on the relative usesof these great rams and the smaller and more easily handled ships on our coaling stations, and the superiority in many re specta-particularly as to reserve ammuni tion and proper torpedo bases for torpedo boats to act from-of foreien navies, are well worthy of...

Any woman who decides to paint to win admiration can never com plain of any insincerity from a man, since she approaches him to deceive him. Of course she never does, still if she gets worsted in the game ahe will realise deceit is not the beat foundation on which to uprear a friend ship.

Suicide of a Rattlesnake. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Suicide of a Rattlesnake. It Mr Edward S. Holden, of the Lick U Observatory, describes in "Nature" a case of deliberate suicide by a rattle snake, which he s witnessed. He says:-In the summer of 1888 Professor Keeler saw alarge rattlesnake (with V seven rattles) crawl under the foundation of the dome of the six-inch equatorial With the nice manipulation for which he is famous, Dr Keeler fastened a pair 0 of blacksmith's tongs about the animal'sneck, and brought him into the large marble vesti bule of the observatory. The snake was furious, and was practically uninjured. After everyone had seen him, it became a question what to do next. It was resolved to put him into a gallon jar of water. Dr Keeler had the task of getting the very lively I animal (which was some 3ft lone) into the jar, and of letting go with the tongs, while I undertook to put in the stopper of the bottle at an auspicious moment. All this was accomplished very nicely, and the next stop was to drown the snake by inv...

Curious Indian Relic. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Curious Indian Relic. o- 1otlong ago there was dog up in Ashland a curious stone withsome dim and crude in scriptirn upon it. It being shown to an old Oregon pioneer he pronounced it a temanewas stone, worn as a breastplate by the ancient Indian priests. It has holes in the upper corners by which it may be hung upon the priest's neck. It carries upon it a picture of the sacred wig warn, and at one end of the wigwam stands the totem pole, on the top of which a little flag was hung that warned the evil spirits off while the priest performed his divine functions in the sacred house or wigwam. This temanewae may coincide with the breastplate of the Ephod, worn by the ancient Jewish priests, so that the pic tuare .of the wigwam on this stone may represent the primary ancestor of all the temples ever dedicated in the world, and all flags and libertypoles of all ages andcountries may possibly be the lineal descendants of the original totem represented on the stone. Pro bably this Ashland s...

SERE ANJ THERE, Br ritE MA~i ABOUT Tow.r, There are now in New Zealand over thirty thousand women-moston 'em,as Bill Adams would eay, lovely--entitled to rote at Par. liamoetary elections. They owe this boon- if it it one-to an intelligent Maori nentle. man, who is reported to have said that his 'Wife Wanted something now to amseo her, and he thought a vote would do es well as anything else. Sir Robert Stout, who ought to know whri he is talking about, says the move is a good one, and that he will back the women to play a square game all round. Personally, the question has not much interest for me. I am too experienced to try and keep from any daughter of Eve what she insists upon havieg, and too gallant to centradict her when she says Lot what she wants is good for her. The end and aim of my life is peace, and that is 1 motto be obtained by arguing with that "1 cberming mixtureof the dove and the eer. t pent known as o" soman."

io thle Editor of the Broadfourd Courier. Stt,-The amusing little drama, or rather farce, which appeared in your last week's issue re the above, had apparen:lv for its object the throwing of ridicule upon those at Reedy Creek who object to the removal of the church; but that the people here do seriously object to the action of the church authorities is no less a fact. It is assertec by old residents that in the past the church has been largely supported by Non-conformists, that all classes contributed to its erection, and that for a time Anglican and Metho dist clergymen used the building alter nately for public worship. Naturally enough, therefore, we thought that the church, though Anglican in name, exis ted far the benefit of the whole of the community. Now we have learned that that was a secoadary consideration-the primary being, the advancement of the an'ientl .\Ahlcan church, for are we not told that if we can secure a "'good Anglican " population the church will be re:urned \...
