Young and His Wife in the Polab Country Twelve Hundred Miles North of St, Paul. 1 V CAMP-FIHE STORIES. ! So large are some of the great lakes in tbe Wild North Land, and so terrible and trea cherous are the storms that frequently occur that many and tedious were the delays we at. times experienced. ' Very clever were our I ndiaD boatmen, but a birch-bark canoe is but a frail vessel, and so there were times when for days together we had to wait, as patiently-as we could, for the head winds to lull, or the storm to cease.

FUNNtQSjTtES. Time's Bevenges. Years, ycaw ago. when I was young, I loved a fair and gentle maiden ; Her praises day and niglit I sang, My heart with deepest passion laden ; But learning that she loved me not, I did not drop a tear or quaver, But bowed to my unhappy lot, And wooed another aweet enslaver, How quickly time doth tarn the scene Wit h wonders strange and changes plenty } My pretty girl is just eighteen, Mj first love's boy is four-and-twenty. Her child lovea mine. How merrily I'll lead his hopes unto the slaughter J His mother would not marry me, And I'll not letjiim wed my daughter !

Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 11 October 1890

Life. BY FRANCIS 5. SMITH. After the tempest comes the calm ; After the woe the healing balm ; After the shower the bright sunsh ne ; Alter hard toil the yielding mine ; Afl«;r the planting the tender shoot ; After the. growing the harvest fruit ; After mad folly reflection deep ; After long watching the blessed sleep. So runs the mixture of sobbing and song That chockcrs this life as wc hurry along ; So runs the record of good and of ill — So runs the story of weakness and will. But wbeu 'tis viewed in philosophy's light, The grand sum. is perfect— She average right ; ? . ' , The end comes at last and our joys and our woes ... Are ended alike in eternal repose.

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 11 October 1890

hirj yuggets. The new pump at the R-owdv Jane (Yackandandah Sluicing Com pany) having beenp-f»ced in position work has been resumed. The new pump is much heavier and stronger than the old one, and is expected to be more lasting'. The only drawback now is the occasional choking of the pipes with pieces of wood and brushes, but this will be remedied by strong grating which is to be placed at the mouth of the pipe. It will also serve to prevent large boulders find ing their way through the pump. A nugget weighing 53oz lOdwt was unearthed at the Australasian and Eaglehawk Co.'s mine, Creswiek. on Friday last. The first crushing of 33 loads of stone from the 333ft. level of the Chiltern Quartz Mining Co., gave a yield of 112fozs. Owing to the very inclement weather of late at Myrtleford. all mining ar rangements have been literally at a standstill : carting- has also been an impossibility. The Streak of Luck Co. ate going to start work on Mon day next if the weather is at all favoroble. ...
