Caledonia and Her Sons. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 January 1892

CaledoulI ant IlHer Sons. UNDEa the auspices of the Caledonian Society of Moelbourne, the Rev. A. C. MacDonald, of Inverness, delivered a lecture on ruesday night in the Mel bourne Town Hall, on Caledonia and her sons at Home and Abroad. The rev. gentleman, in opening his lecture, said he had travelled pretty ex tensively in the United States, in Can ada, in Egypt, in Assyria and on the continent of Europe, and had for a long time cherished an idea of visiting Aus tralia. On approaching its shores he did not feel that he was a stranger visit ing a strange land, but that he would fall among friends. lie came to see for himself the advantages which Australia offered as a field of settlement as com pared with the Canadas, but he was not going to give a lecture on emigration, but to confine himself to the theme an nounced in his lecture. The Caledonian's love for his native country, for his moun tains and his native garb would soon be a thing of the past. When the highland landlord ceas...

Strath Creek State School. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 January 1892

Strath Creek State School. A few weeks ago the Education De partment, in pursuance of a policy to re duce what they regard as an excessive expenditure upon public education, de cided to close a number of minor un classified schools in surrounding districts, and among the number that at Strath Creek. The children attending there were to be taken to Kerrisdale, a much smaller school five miles away, the De partment engaging to undertake their conveyance. The school was thus practically closed with the commence ment of the Midsummer holidays and Mr. Wilson, the teacher, has been trans ferred to a township a few miles from Lilydale, for whicn locality he left Strath Creek yesterday. The Department how ever, influenced by the actionable risks they encounter by uncontrolled transition have seen fit to alter their arrangement and now decline to take the reponsi bility of conveyance, leaving the parents to take what may appear to them selves the mostjudicious course in tnat respect: and pro...

Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892

Subjects for Thought. -4----- The affections, however warm, will grow cold, and the desires, however strong, will decline, unless their corresponding actions are performed. The best intentions in the world, without effort, will produce nothing, and will themselves die away. So the hand without the heart will never continue opera. tive. The expression of affection where none exists must die upon the lips. Compulsion may produce a momentary pressure, but, as soon as it is removed, a reaction takes place. Industry flags as soon as the motive is ra. moved. Self-sacrifice becomes impossible where love is not. Heroism without sn. tnusiasm is unachievable. In every line of business, no matter whether conducted upon a large or a small ecale, it is the little things that count. The little expenses, the little wastes, the little economies are the ones that turn the balance of accounts either for profit or loss, and it is these little things that need the closest atten. tion.

Our Chief Possession. * It is something everybody owns, it is a thing to make the most of, use at onooand use gpnerously, for it cannot longerabide with us. It bath ingredients-of all glory-it hath possibilities of all un worthiness. More of It than we have now at our commnand we can never own -yet it gives us every allowance, permit ting us to sink or swim, rise or fall. It is the magic key that shall open for us the gates to happiness or the dark portals of misery-it is the building stone of our future mansion in which we shall live in honor or in shame. With it in our pos. session we are arbiters of our own fates, the makers of our after lives, the leaders of ourselves to victory or defeat. With out its aid no otielasrisen to success, nor without its help has anyone fallen. It is the touchstone of eternity-it is the Present.

A Story Worth Repeating. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892

A. Story Worth Repeating. '--*++- During Wellington's campaign, the British cavalry were noted for their courage and superior riding. One day, in Spain, a French colonel of dragoons rode out, at. tended by three orfour troops, to reconnoitre the position of the Eanlisa army. While riding ulung they suddenly came upon a youne English officer, who ina' also ridden out to reconnoitre the French army. " Sur. render I" shouted the French colonel., fBut the lBritisher, being mounted on a thorough bred, laughed in the colonel's face, and quietly cantered away. The Frenchman pursued as fast as his heavy steed could gallop. Tihe other allowed him to get quite close, and then, kissing his hand and leaving him far, behind, shouted, pointing to the Frenchman's horse, "Only a Norman horse, monsieur I" The Frenchman galloped after him, shquting " I will shout you it you do notsurrender I" lie pointed his pistol and pulled the trigger, but the weapon missed fire., With a burst of mocking laughter,...

Smokeballs. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892

Smokeballs. In a shnm fight in honor of the Emperor i Wiliiam, an alvancing column was eo af. I fected by the fumes of the smokeball which 'was use.l to raise a cloud of impenetrable otscurity under which they could advance, thrt the men had to krep their hands to their noses to avoid suffoca:ian. It is now pro posed that the smokeball shall receive further development. It has occurred to som military ntn that instead of half sut. focating their own troops it would be better to asphyxiate the enemy. A Vienna scientist has accordingly invented a bomb of such power and virulence that everyone who is within a certain raidics of it when it ex. plodes is rendered unconscious. Devices such as these would soon modify the art of war, and probably the next development will be an anti-asphyxiating bomb, whose fumes will neutralise those of the other. It is said that many years ago a scheme, based on the throwing of poisonous gases over a tract of country, was put before the war office in Engl...
