Eelling a Wife. t Some of the people over in the Catskills have queer ideas of morality. Edward H. Thompson, who lives near West Hurley was married last fall to Miss l'linley, a young woman of the neighborhood. About three weeks ago his wife did something which displeased him. He spoke about the matter to his friend Charles Lewie. The'latter told him that if Thompson was not satisfied with his wife he would buy her A bargain was struck at once, and Lewis, who lives at Sawkill, paid over the purchase money, 43 cents. Both Thompson and Lewis took a drink of hard cider at the village tavern over the deal. The woman was to be dehvered the following Sunday. When Thompson returned home and informed his wife of what he had done she made no ob jection, but, on the contrary, seemed rather pleased. Last Saturday young Thompson began to get lonesome and regretted the sale. He went to see his wife for the purpose of in du. him. She refused to do so, saying she was eontented mua .i.OneA with the...

A Great Coming Event. THE MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

A Great Coillng Event. TIlE MELBOURNE CUP. (Ilr STERLINo.) VERY few people really realize what an im portant factor in Victorian commerce is the great funtion held by the Victoria Racing Club in November next, and the amount of cash and coin which is circulated in mar vellous Melbourne through the agency of its chief event the Melbourne Cup. Away where the waters of the Gulf bear fleets of pearl divers, and even in distant New Guinea, the 'Melbourne Cup is even now a subject for discussion. Far in the west of the continent, at Roebourne, Kimberley, and Coolgardie. speculation on its result has already commenced. The quartz-miners of Gympie, tile workers of Mount Morgan, and the silver-miners of the Barrier. of Tuena, and of Sunny Corner, all anxiously lool; forward to the great Spring festival, and the coal-miners of Newcastle are as fond of hors:-racing as the colliers of the Tyne.

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

THE WIDE WORLD. --o Sir Evelyn Wood's remarks upon the recent large gathering of volunteers at Alder ehotwas issued at the camp. After saying that the great bulk cl the volunteers did better work that in 1SS2, tbs General observes: The umpires are ofopinion that the falling out of the men is due to want of mflficient breakfast in the morning, inadequate control by the officers, want of practice in marching, and want of practice of commanding offieers to leadin their men over ground with a minimum fatigue. It is obviously impossible for volunteers to practice marching asa body before they take part in manewres, butindi. vidual volunteeremight walk a few miles daily I before they come into camp, they would then be tn a better condition to profit by the a instruction which is obtainable only at a few sr tations. What may be done by practice is a evident from the fact that in one iegular brigade of four battalions only 10men fell t out ; whereas n one Regular battalion which hasonly rec...

The Government Dairy Expert's Report. INTERESTING TO FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

The Goveraaimezit Dairy Expert's ReIport. INTERESTING TO FARIERS. Trel report, which Mr. D. Wilson, the Government dairy expert, has placed before the Minister of Agriculture, is an exhaustive document, which will be h read with very great interest. On the a question, whether the freezing of hatter is injurious to it or not, Mr. Wilson says:-" The result of my inquiries has been to prove conclusively, t that butter is not injured by freezing, and that considerable loss can be averted in future by having butter carried at lower lemperatures than hitherto. At all experiments tried in I the colony, on board ship, and in Lon- 1 don, with the same butter frozen and chilled, the exports were unanimous in pronouncing the frozen butter to be worth from 3d. to 4d. per lb. more. Such being so, the question erises, how much the colony has lost in last year's shipments alone for the want of this definite information? Take last year's exports (not to mention previous years) in round numbers to b...

Mellbourne Lettcr. [ay oUR ott'' CORRESPONDEST.J TUESDAY. TIE Premier's intimation that it is his desire to close the present session of Parliament ab sut the first week in November, must lie accepted as an indication that the Governmutt are well satisfied with what they have accomplished. Mr. Patterson told a number of his supporters the other day that greagreat reforms will be undertaken by the Ministry during the recess and that " some surprises " in legislation may be looked for, but this statement lias not weakened the belief which is entertained by a section of the lHouse natlele, that the honorable member is not going to remain in the colony much longer, andl that when the Assesmbly enters upon a new session pihout the mniddle of 189l., lie will be Victoria's Agent General in London. The treasurer, Mr. Carter, is stated to be tired of the responsibilities of office, and no one will be surprised if he should fall out of the Ministry when .the anticipated shuffling of the polit...

Oriental Lovers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Oriental Lovers. It is the settled maxim of most of these Oriental excursions of fancy and romance (says Sir Edwin Arnold. in an article in the "Daily Telegraph" on " Oriental Story Tellers ") that Never wearies death of ilayinz, Nor the seasof driokian ricer; nor tle bright-eyed of betraying. The baanar-master's wife (Sir Edwin con tinues) is particularly audacious and successful in her trick upon her lord. There is a household diversionin Persia much resembling our "Philippina," where, if you accept any gift without first pronouncing a safeguarding word you are made ridiculous, and must pay a forfeit The wife of a bazaar-tiaster invites her would-be lover, the son of a banker, to put on a woman's veil and come to a feast at her house. On his arrival she takes him into the inner apartment, speaks loving words to him and tells him to remain comfortably there until she shall have returned, brmaing with her requisite refreshments. She then leaves him and instructs one of her female at...

Does Feed Increase Fat in Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Does Feed Increase Fat in Milk. Mr A. V. Trow recenitl' gave smtac xlperience at variance with the generally accepted theory that feed will change the amount of fat in milk. I have baeu xpeleri. menting along this line for IS matntho, and to far have been unable to formulvtca food raoit that would change the amount of butter fI.t in the milk. I have taken a cow ofll what we might call a scientific ration, turned her out to a straw stack, where she coauld get nothing ti, eat hut wheat.straw, and at the end of teeo weeks she tested 1Ā§ per cent. more fat thani when well fed and cared for. .1t a rotter of course, she shrank in milk at a greater rate than she gained in butter fat. Now, I came to the point where there erems t be a difficulty to get people to undertanud; a point that, if undertood, will clear up a great deal of the mystery surroundi.ng this question, and help to settle it. I say that fat cannot be fed into milk, that a cowthat is fully dere:oped, giving say :0lbh. of 5 p?r...

A Famous Carpet. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

A Famous Carpet. The famous carpet from the mospque at Ardebil, which attracted sc much atten tion in 1892, has now (reports a London 1 paper) been secured for the South Ken sington Museum, and is exhibited in the Indian Section. The price was more than the authorities of the museum were in a position to give for it, but it is understood that through the generous assistance of Mr E. Steiakopff, Mr William Morris, Mr A. W. Franks, Mr J. IE. Taylor, and other gentlemen. who have supplemented the sum which the museum was prepared to give, this carpet, perhaps the finest of the kind in Europe, has been acquired for the nation. It measures 34ft Gins in length, and 17ft i Gin in breadth. The fineness of its tex ture may be gathered from the fact that there are 180 hand-tied knots to the Esqare inch, which gives 33,000,000 knots I in the whole carpet. The design consists of a large central medallion in pale yellow, surrounded by cartouches. of various colors symmetrically die- - posed on a...

A Violent French Deputy. Writing on the 21st May the Paris corre. Epondent of the " DailyNew" thus describes an incident duly reported in our cablegrams : -31. Baudry d'Asson, whose property by the way is being managed for him by a judi. cial council, behaved yesterday with schoolboy turbulence in the Chamber of Deputies, when the question of the demand of the Govern ment to prosecute Deputy Baudin for resist. ing the police on May-day was on. M. Labuhsiere mounted the tribune to read the report of the committee specially named to deal with the demand. It concluded in favor of the prosecution. .?. Dupuy thereupon mounted the trn bune to ask for an immediate debate on the report, stating, as he did so, that the Minister of Justice would be obliged to leave town next day, and that it was desirable to have the matter settled one way or the other before he eft. At this point Deputy Chiche, jumping I up, asked in a loud voice whether M. Guerin was going to bring back Arton. M1. Baudry d'...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN Potato Seed. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN Potato Seed. ----o--- I The preparation of potato seed will comeeie for early attention. thint seemiogly simplsa operation is too often put past tool and without having due heed paid to the Impor tance involved. As in the case of all other kinds of crops, the ultimatesuccess of the tuber crop depends very materially upon the Scharacter of seed deposited in the soil. Opinion, we may safely assume, is pretty well agreed that soundness and a high degree of vitality are essential qualities in the seed. Apart from these generally accepted qualifications, how ever, there are other questions of considerable influence, which will amply repay full ardcare Sful investigation and observation. 1 The point as to whether potatoes should be planted whole or cut into iarts or" sets" is, as yet, widely disputed. With a large and im pcrtant section of potato-growers the use of whole seed is preferred. It is claimed by sup. porters of that system that the extra cost en tiled by the...

Hindoo Beauties. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Hindoo Beauties. In a typical Hindoo beauty the skin is just dark enough to give a rich, soft ap pearance to the complexion, the features are regular, the eyes mild and black and shaded by long silken lashes ; the hands and feet are small and elegantly formed, the demeanor is modest, the manners gentle, the voice low and sweet. Such a combination of good points may not often be met with, but when it is, who shall say what havoc is wrought among the hearts of the male beholders I There are good-looking women occasionally among the middle-class lHindoes, as well as among the upper ten, and even among the low castes the faces are sotimenes very pleasing. Many of the women of Indm, and especially those of Kashmir, are very beautiful. The worst of it is that not only are the most beautiful ones seldom seen, but even their portraits are difticult to obtain.
