Madame Antoinette Sterling. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 6 October 1893

Madame Antoinette Sterling. 31. Iiviese, in some reminiscences nub lished by a London paper, tells the story of the first appearance, under his auspices, of Madame Antoinette Sterling, as fol lows:-" It to happened that I had made all engagements for the season (1873) when this lady called upon me. bearing a letter of introduction from Sir Julius Benedict. I was compelled, thereo fore, to give the conventional answer about my list of engagements being complete; though I am bound to add there was sincerity in the regret I expressed, for I should have been glad to do honor to Sir Julius's recommendation. Madame Antoinette Sterling, however, seemed determined to carry her point, and the result ot her renewed entreaty was that I consented to put her name down in the(Covent Garden) programme for one song without payment. The singer selected Bach's Cradle Song, and her success from the first verse was assured. And so it came about that this since famous contralto, who was then wanting to ...

Nccaskity fo: Drainage. aIny thousands of - vuable fruit trees have beeen killed every year ehrough the lreseeoce of exaessive quntlties of wuter near the roots. Trees on hillsides. evel, have been killed from the same cause. The ~lts are simily drowned. The water fi!ls up the abole of the soil, drives out the air, and the rotel are just drownerd as effectually as an anithl could be under the seme eireumstaneoe. The bark decays, end tbs wood turns broan and has a sour smell, whilst the top braesiess die firsLt and gradually the whole tree des,aulaess some freeh roots are produced, when thltrees may linger on till the next wet season.

Profitable Pork Making [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Profitable Pork ,Making. We may have a breed of the very best hogs, food may beplentr and ehep, maskese may hm handy and sbippi~ng facilitie first-class, and yet raise, feed, and sell our porkers without realising scarcely any profit from the transne. tiou to recomlede us for our core, toil and money expended, while our neighbor, with no better opportunities, perhaps not so good, derives a handsome profitL from this branch of his farm operations. Why do we find this to be true? Superior msoanagement, "striking while the iron is hot," tells thIe tale. The hog is like a man, if he is not good and improving he is retrogradin, and going to the bad, says a writer in an exehange. Thereit no middle or neutral ground upon which he can stand. Now, many farmers, and, I believe a few breeders, have not as yet learned this lesson, hence their science fee ding benefits them but little, if any They fall to embrace their oprorotnilies as they should. - Good blood is the first requisite to profitab...

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. The one essential element of all soils, with. oat which the food plants cannot egrow, n phosphorus. This element occurs in the soil n the shape of phosphates of lime chiefly. The original source of phosphorous is the older sedimentary r3ckso, from which the soils are chiefly derived. A fairly good soil should con tain somewhere about one-tenth per cent. of phosphorous, cr, say, roughly, lb. of phos. phorous to every 1,0901b. of soil. This does not appear u very large percentage, yet it is suflement to render a sod fertile so far as that all.importlant clcmcntis concerned. Sincethe percentage of phosphorus is so small in soils, it is eaoy to comprehend how, when the grain is sold and the stoek driven to market, there is a constant drain going on, which will, unless suitable fertilisrr alre used, soon completely exhaust the soil. The bones of animals con. tain from )c to 70 per cent. of pihospate of lime, so that mhen the stock raised on the farm are sent away, th...

My Mother. i - e -iy-mother sings-her voice is low and sweet, Again a child, I nestle at her feet: What though the song a simple lullaby! I'll hear no sweeter music till 1 die. My mother smiles, a bright-eyed happy glance; Agana youth, I lead the mesry dance, Yet, in the throng of girlhood's rosy grace, I see no lovelier vision than my mother's face. My mother prays for strength to guide my youth Aright along the thorny path of truth. What though no wealth or fame await that way! I rise without a care to meet the coming day. lMy mother sleeps-ah me :--no voice no sounnd Can reach me from beneath the still, cool ground. Y.t sometimes in my dreams I hear her sing again That dear old lullaby, tuned to a nobler strain. --" Detroit Free Press."

Hints for Home and Farm. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Hints for Home and Farm: o-- Every farmer should be required to cut all t'le wild scrub, thistles, burdocks, along his side of the highway, and inside of his fences. Don't take all the substance from the land without making ample rrovision to retrn t some nutriment. Landis like lirestock ', it well. If following the plough or caltivat makes your feet sore, try giving yonr shoe .a good dose of oil-two parts of oeatofoot o to oue art of beef tallow is good. A large crop is not onlymore profitable than a small one, but costs less proportionately. It requires no more time to plough an acre for a good crop than for a ryor one. Don't try the p!an of increasing the size of your farm to saell your income. It can't " be did," except by wiser men than most of us are today. InCrease Jour yield from the bame area. Draining is tIe correct remedy for wet lands, and from the bad effects from wet seasons. Now we must learn that it is almost equally efficient in preventing damage from excessive drou...

CIIAPrE. II.I-Tino S~crPer. The first thought that came into Jessie's head was to call her father; but a moment's reflec tion convinced her that if her suppposition proved correct-if the stranger at the gate was the hunted convict-he would show him no mercy. HIe would deliver him up to justice, or drive him back into the foggy rmarshlands whencohe hod come. It was even more prob able, she thought, thathe would forbid her to unbolitti.- aJ.r. It might be unnatural to trnto so meanly of her own father; but his attitude towardsher-the suppression of facts, that so deeply concerned her, for his own selfisl ends-justified her opinion of him. Sha was notsunprised: his conduct had only confirmed her in her estimate of his egotistic nature. IHe had lacked thie moral coorage to apprise her of the tronuble that had overtaken John Uperatt, lest byso doing lie might jeopardise his own comfort! How could she hope to win his pity for the desol teor distressed? While she still stood there, doubtfu...

Reedy Creek. Io o ow : so: rue cricket match between Reedy Creek and Flowerdale came off cn Saturday, on the ground of the former. The weather was showery, making the pitch very slippery and difficult to play on. Two of Reedy's best men were unable to put in an appear a.ce, which proved very detrimental to the team. Craig captained Flowerdale and Balmer the locals. The latter won the toss and sent his team in to bat. The total number of runs made on each side wyas Flowerdale, 46: Reedy, 28.

The Broadford Town Common. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

The'l BIroadford Town Conasuon. TuHE letter from the Minister of Lands to the Secretary of the Broadford Town Common, published in these columns last week, and stating that it is proposed to throw open the common for selection under the Settlement on Lands Act, has caused little or no stir on the part of tile townsfolk. Thle only question raised is as to whether the selling of the land by auction is not preferable to the establish. ment of a village settlement, and we are inclined to favor the former. If the land was put up in from 2 to 5 acre blocks at auction, on the usual Government terms, almost anyone in Iroadford, who so desired, could purchase a piece suitable for a paddock, whereon to run a cow and a horse; whereas if the land is devoted to the establishment of a village settlement local residents will be preclu ded from either purchasing a piece or from taking up a piece under the Settlements Act. Moreover, if a settle ment is established an undesirable class will $e brough...

Fancy Dress Carnival. CLOSING OF THE RINK. THE rinking season was brought to a conclusion here on Friday evening last, when a grand fancy dress carnival was given in the Mechanics' Hall. The arrangements were complete and the hall, tastefully decorated with evergreens, flowers and fairy lights, presented a pleasing appearance. There was a good attendance of rinkers and an excep tionally large attendance of onlookers, who were seated on the stage and were thus able to see all that was going on in the hall. Some of the costumes worn w:re very pretty, and additional interest was given to the preparing of same by the fact that a medal was to be given to the best dressed gentleman and to the best dressed lady. These were awarded to Mrs. McDougall and to Master Ernest Pullinger. Following are some of the costumeq worn :-Mrs. McDougall, nurse; Mrs. A. Smith, Swiss peasant; Miss Doyle, winter; Miss F.

THE CONSTANCY OF SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

THE CONSTANCY OFP SPRING. Love was stronger than death in the case of Frank Gibson. His promised wife died a few days prior to that appointed for their wedding, and for nearly a year he had held himself aloof from the society of women. He was gently and sadly kind to them, and, of course, this made him all the more attractive. Nearly every woman is attracted by the man who has, or seems to have, a" melancholy past. The careless, handsome, merry fellow--the "agreeable rattle "-has for woman-nature not half the charm which is possessed by Quasimoda with the Secret Sorrow. But although the women pursued this very eligible pgrti they never succeeded in making him in earnest. Frank Gibson told himself that his heart was buried in his sweetheart's grave. George Field, Frank's cousin and philoso pher, had left him, and the man whose heart was buried sat brooding over the old wound and the latest advice. ' Rouse yourself,' Field had said. f It's a pity you haven't to work for your living, i...
