The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 1891. Throwing Down the Gauntlet. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892
e ANU REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, i89g Throwing Down the Gauntlet. Tas recent decision of Mr. L iK. McEKiziE to contest the Division of Anglesey with Mr. HUNT, the present member, may be presumed to be a matter of extreme interest to his wide circle of personal acquaintance, and no less so to the electors generally. Mr. McKanxsa we need scarcely say, is, in many respects, eminently fitted to fill the responsible position to which he aspires; and it will probably appear not the least of his claims in the eyes of supporters, that he is a lifelong resident of the electorate, and therefore conver sant with its interests. Of course a seat in the Legislative Assembly is not to.day quite what it used to be. A parliamentary representative is not now, of necessity a ruler. Not he who passes a law, but he who creates the sentiment that leads to it is the true legislator. It would be within the limits of a broad general truth, to say that the schoolmaster is ...

S iSuljects For Thought. TO some the experience they pass thronch are like beadt, upon a string, and. when the thread of life is cut, they simply roll away out of night and out of mind. A new business here, a now friendship there; here a lucky nacident. there a disastrous failure; Shere. hirthl andl rejoicing, there a death and Smourning; and, as thie mind recalls them and no connection between them, xeplt that of time or piace.

A Joke that was Coined. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892
A Joke that was Coined. "Coining " jokes is a very common fi?nre of speech. bot we knowu of only one instance in which the joke was actually coined-tlat is struck upon graven die, and issued from a legal mint. The fact is historical, and is as followa: In the year 1679 the Danes ad vanccd with a large force upon Hamburg,, hut' after a uiege of considerable duration, meeing but little hope of ultimate success, they finally withdre.v and marched back. Thrreapon the Hamburgers caused a medal to oe struck in commemoration of the event. On one side of the numismatic curiosity was the inscriplioe: "The Klng of Denmark came b, fore Hamburg. What lie gained by it will be seen on the other side." Ou the other side there was a total blank.

Fishing in the Sunday Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892
Fishiug in the Sunday Creek. GooD FsHINGo.-Notwithstanding all that is said, fish do evidently manage to exist below the Paper Mill. On Wednesday morning Messrs. Eaton and T. Marchbank spent a very profitable hour and a half a mile below it during which they succeeded in hooking out some 3olbs of, fine cod and bream, the largest weighing 8 pounds. The anglers attribute their luck principally to the pecuilar condition of the atmosphere prevailing at the time. Another party caught 3olbs the same afternoon near the same place and they state there was practi. cally no limit to the quantity obtainable. NeW aruMsas.-in another column Mr. Bossence, undertaker of Kilmore, announces that be has'commenced business in Biddle's Buildings, opposite the Royal Hotel, Sydney street, and assures his customers that all orders by telegram or otherwise will receive immediate atteution.
Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892
Strath Creek. --0 [YROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Duvano Monday a serious fire broke outon the Tallarook ranges and Messis. G. and W. Richards and also Shepherd have suffered considerably through loss of grass, and fences. Fortunately Wednesday's rain put an effectual damper upon it. The creamery machinery is in course of erection and next week will see the structure in working order. A surprise party visited Mr. Munro'son Friday night and a glorious time they had too. So large was the number that it was necesssary to adjourn to a neighbouring hall where daylight dawned in an incredulously short time. The Cricket match-Smokers v. Non Smokers-resulted in a tie on the first innings. The lovers of the weed scored 34 at their second attempt; leaving the nun-smokers35 to win with 15 minutes to do it in. Craig and Hilliear went to the stumps and made 6 the first over. The remainder with 4 to spare were obtained within the limits of time. The non-smokers thus won after a elose game.

Serious Fire at Kilmore. OVER £2,ooo OF PROPERTY DES. TROYED. ON Thursday night thde-1th inst at about 9 o'clock an extremely destructive tire broke out on some premises in Sydney Street, which resulted in the speedy demolition of three business houses and the partial destruction of the " Advertiser" Office. The cause of the fire is unknown but it originated in the grocery store of Mr. J. P. Butler, from which a volume of smoke was seen to issue at the time mentioned. An alarm was at once raised and a crowd of ex. cited residents were soon on the spot making Herculeau but almost unavailing efforts to stay the devastating power. lHaving broken open the door of Butler's premises it was seen at once that nothing could save them from complete ruin, and almost im mediately the back portion of the neighbour. ing house was seen to be on fire, A band of men set to work at the perilous task of rt. moving the furniture of this and the neigh. bouring house. And they were not a moment too soon ...

The business of the evening was the elec. tion of collectors, a proceeding rendered necessary through the damaging influence of certain rumors which had got abroad to the effect that the project might possibly go 'bung'for want of support. Mr. G. H. Evans moved the election of Messrs. Carver and J. Evans to act in the capacity of General Treasurers which met with general approval and was carried. Messrs. J. J. and G. H. Evans were appointed collectors with in. structions to obtain all monies due by the 2oth.

A Badge of Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 January 1892
A Badge of Service. -----+--- For many years before the Crimean War. the moustache, In England, was the dis tinguishing badge of the cavalry; it was prolibited in the infantry, and as for the civilian who braved public opinion by spnrting it, he was looked on either as an at tist. an eccentric, or as wishing to pass for a hussar. But shaving by regulation (little I as it may be suspected by those who submit Ito it) has an origin more serious than mere Icaprice or love of uniformity. It is the badge of service ; a survival of the primitive custom of mutilating slaves to prevent their escape, or ensure their recognition and re. capture if they did escape. The Mosaic law made the mutilation more merciful than it probably bad been previously. The proper Smode of re-engaeing a servant is set forth i in the Bible : '" Then his master shall bring 'him unto the judges: he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and Sis mnster shall bore his ear through with an av:l, and be ...
