The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1893. Safe Mode of Investing Small Savings. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

AND REEDY CREEK TIUss. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY,: OCTOIERI 13, 1893. Safe Mode of Investiing Small Savings. TnEnc appears to be a good deal of misapprehension in London re specting the £1,250,000 worth of Treasury B lls which the Govern ment is about to ask power to issue, should circumstances render such issue necessary. Sorme busybody in Aus. tralis, most probably in Melbourne, has taken the trouble to cable tihe news to London, but, either through ignorance of the subject, or careless ness in framing the message, he has left it to be inferred that the Bills are to be thrown on the London market, at once, and for the whole amount. In short, he has in some blundering way managed to conrey the impression that the Government are hard-up for money, and are about to send rsund tile hat once more. Considering the fact that within the last week or two we have obtained over £2,000,000 from the same fountain, the English investors have a right to teel so:prised at a second applicatio...

The Woman Who Laughs. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

The Woman Who Laughs. "You can trust your happiness with a woman who lauchs," once said a wit. Though the assertion may seem like a sweep. tog one, founded on a very airy basis, there is much more truth in it than appears on the An honestlaugh Ia the enemy of anbier fuge, and the woman who can see the ridion. Ions side of the annoying happenings of every-day life will not become the dismal, tiroeome companion that the pessimistic indi. vidual is so apt to prove. Somehow one feels inst.ncfively that they can trust a person who has laughing eyes, whose mouth is ever ready to dimple into smiles, and whose disposition tends to bright ness rather than depression. Loud, meaningless laughter is as bad as the cackling giggle emanating from a shallow mind, and is an evidence of lack of breeding, but the spontaneous, low, happy little laugh, teeming with enjoyment of the mo ment, and backed by a nature pure and lovable, is a charm in woman as attractive'as a lovely fao or beautiful form.

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

AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL NOTES. THE spring has opened with heavy rains, patchy in locality of fall, and the effect has been that one portion of the continent cries out in fear of floods while another looks pnxiously for a deluge to restore the grass. In Victoria generally the fall has beeq heavy and abundance of bush pasture may therefore Lbe relied on for Southern stock. Warrnambool district, indeed, has ex perienced such heavy rains that an other. wise full potatocropthreatens to be seriously diminished but as potato growing is general in many unflooded districts the chances of a troublesome shortage are minimised. Rust may occur in many grain districts should much sultry weather follow on the rain, but by present forecasts it iq very improbable that such will be the case. In the mallee harvest prospects are exceed. ingly good, and the coming season's export should top the recqrd of past years by many thousand quarters. The Australian wool exhibit has attracted the admiration of ...

Tailor-made Gowns. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Tailor-made Gowns. Tailor-made gowns seem to be invented expressly for the stout woman, and cer tainly these trim close-fitting gowns suit her better than any one else. A tai'or suit of navy blue scrge is made double-breasted and trimmed with a double row of white pearl but~ons. These buttons are placed so as to come together in a point at the waist. The skirt is quite devoid of trimming, unless the double row of stitching which borders the hem,revers and, In fact, the edge of the whole suit, can be counted as such. With this suit is worn a muslin chemisette.

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

Joy and Sorrow. A world of joy and of summer weather, Waves on the shingle, sills on the sea, Clover and buttercups nodding together, And deep-hearted lilies that beckon the bee. And hey ! for the strain from the dark wood copses ; And hey ! for the lilt in the young heart's song! Summer and splendor, oh! blithe and tender The notes that fall, and the thoughts that throng. A world of gloom and of desolate yeasning; Tapers pale at the cross-tree's foot; Ashes and dust, and the sombre burning Of hopes torn up like weeds from the root. And woe! for the silence that broods and deepens; Woe 1 for the eyes that to grief must wake ; For pain and sorrow, for many a morrow, On which nolight of love shall break. Two worlds? Not so. They abide together The wor!d of joy, and the world of grief, The time of the bloom on turf and heather, The time of snow and the fallen leaf. Hey I tor the strain from the dim wood copses; Woe ! for the depth of the heart's despair ! Her ! for the splendor, the li...

Astronomy in the United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Astronomy in the United States. The director of the great Lick Obser vatory in California, Mr Iolden, points out how the practical turn of thie Ameri cans is illustrated by the way in which they have applied astronomy to the uses of daily life. Their public lands are laid out in rectansular plots ; every imnportant seaport has its noon time-ball to regulate the chronometers of ships; all railways and most towns have accurate time signals furnished by observatories; local tismes are practically abolished, and standard time (which is nothing but the exact Greenwich minute and second, with the hour decreased by five. six. seven, or eight) is universally employed over the whole of the vast territory of the United States. Thousands of local times were changed into standard times over that whol, territory in a single day, with out the slightest accident or deten tion, on more than 100,000 miles of rail way. Mr IIolden instances (says a London paper) a large number of in genious devices fo...

Edison as a Boy. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Edison as a Boy. Edison displayed an inventive imagination even in his earliest years, if we are to believe the ste:., told of him by a writer in an Amer:'a.s magazine. Astonished at the results of a gooee sitting on a nest of eggs, the inventor thought to increase the brood by a device of his own. One day the boy was missed from his usual haunts. Messengers were sent in search of him, and found him curled up in a nest he had made in the barn. It was filled with goose and hen eggs, upon which he was sitting trying to batch them! Edison was more successful in another youth ful experiment which he made. HIis wanderings brought him at seventeen years of ace to the Cincinnati office of the Western Union, where his absorption in electricity and predictions of his future power confirmed the sobriquet "Luny,"which clung to him even until his fame was established. " We have the craziest chap in our office,' said the telegraph manager to a Cincinnati editor; "he tries all sorts of queer thin...

The Dark Side of Bush Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

The Dark Side of Bush Life. I VERY Spring there arises a versifier who sing, in tuneful jingles the beauties of the bush, and at the time nearly everybo.dy agrees with him. For in early September the bush is very, very teauliful. There is the won.lerfl hou?n scent of the bllarkwrood andl sensuous smell of the musk tree, and to all men who are not blind there are beauties in the star sha ped ltowers of the aspple-jack, and the graceful curve of the fern :ron,I, and in the heath bell, red and white, whi.ch grows best when the lanl is hungriest. It loonks very well then, does the country, turf tunder. foot, and scent in the buish on your ilmka, antl aloft the cloudless blue. But ike everything else it has its frrults. A few months hInce and we will see the bush in the arid summer -the turf of the spring is the dust of the summer, and the heat shimmers and trembles whenever it strikes a white stoun. There is no water in the hnod, tre face of tire saun. baked country is horrible, and eve...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. In Pure White Robes at Night. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

'THE LADIES' COLUMN. In Pure White Robes at Night. . There are pictures in the gallery of memory that shine Through the mist of bvegone years with an unfading, tender light; But the one round which the sweetest, purest recollections twine, Shows the figure of a little one in pure white robes at night. Standing on the lowest stair, Waiting for a good-night kiss, Smiling, arms to be extended There's no pictume quite like this. Oh, the wealth of golden ringlets on the snowy neck and brow, And the love and trast unmeasured in the blue eyes soft and bright ! And the little feet so cunning-I can see them even now, Half concealed and hslf out-peeping 'neath the pure white robes at night. Standing on the lowest stair, Waiting for a good-night kiss, Cherry lips, and face upturning There's no picture quite like this. Like a breath of fragrance wafted from the azure fields above, Or a strain of music straying through the gates of glory bright, I can sometimes catch the echo of some words of te...

Melbourne Letter. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

:Helbournet better. -:o: [BY OUR OWN' CORRESPONDENT.j TUESDAY. TIrE Premier has given a direct contra. diction to the statement that he will shortly proceed to London as Agent General, and of course this must be accepted-in a political sense. No one expected that Mr. Patterson would do anything else. It would not suit him just at present to admit that he has any intention of giving up the head of Govern ment, and to allow the statement to pass unnoticed would be tantamount to an admission of its correctness. Therefore, he steps to the front with the announce meat that it is not his intention to leave the colony. Did he not utter a similar contradiction when the statement was first made that the Patterson Government intended to ask Mr. Gillies to accept the office of Agent. General ? Politicians, as everyone knows, are not bound hard and fast to their statements. It is so very easy to wriggle out of former utterances: " When some months since I felt called upon to contradict a statem...

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

Precious Nuggets. The history of the great Californian and other nuggets of the precious metal is (says a writer in "Chambers' Journal") in many respects interesting and romantic. Thus, the discovery of one of the finest Califor nian nuggets was made under very singular circumstances. It is known as the Oliver Martin Nugget, and was found near Camp Corona, in Toulumne Couuty, and weighed 151lbs Goz. blartin and a companion namedFlower werecamped in a canon, when a terrible rainstorm came on in the night, and the water in the stream suddenly rose. The miners attempted to climb the hill, but the flood overtook them, and both were carried down the stream. Flower was drowned; but Martin, though severely in jured, escaped. While trying to bury his companion's body by the rotas of an up turned tree, Martin discovered the rich nugget that bears his name. He was too weak to move it. He attempted to reach some neighboring miners, but faintea from exhaustion, and was found o, the trailby them...
