[COPYRIGHT.] Fernbrook's Double. A Romance of Maoriland. CHAPTER I.—(CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 February 1892

[COPre?GIT.] Fen'brook's Double. Romance of Maoriland. By Atha Westbury. CHAPTEIt I.--(CoTINCsrEo.) The old Maori took his gun, and, after securing the door of his whare, led the way down the ridge of thb ravine in silence. It was a perilous path even to those who were acquainted with its in tricate windings ; but Bosco, who, old as he was, had been born and reared in the vicinity, now guided his companion safely to the western ledge, overlooking the sea. In a small, cirzular-shaped inlet, coml pletely hid by the high, over-hanging cliffs above it, a goodly sized yawl was seen rising and falling with the motion of the waves. The Ferret and his companion em barked. After they had cleared the core a largo lug sail was hoisted, which, catch ing the breeze, sent the boat along at tihe rate of six or seven knots an hour. The Maori held the helm, and steered for a promontory opposite the Barrier, but far away in the distance, and on which a tiny speck of light shone over the dark waters. ...

Interesting Items. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 February 1892

Interesting Items. Butchers in England evince a strong partiality for the Polled Angus breed o.f cattle, experience having shown that the quality of the beef cannot be surpeased, while at the same time the animals almost invari ably weigh heavier than appearances indicate. When the breed becomes more widely known in these colonies it is mlor than probable the same preference will be shown fr it. A couple of weeks ago a 41 years old half breed Polled angus bullock was sold by .1Mr William Mitchell of Janecourt to a butcher in Camper. down and his dressed weight proved to be 1200lb. He considesed one of the very lnest bullocks ever slaughtered in the district. Another bullock from the same herd was killed at Ba'larat about the same time, the weilghtof which was 1040 lb. of prime beatl: When such heavy weights as these can be produced by crossing ordinary cows with pure Polled Angus bulls, the merits of the breed are to be recognised in time, and there is the further consideration of b...

"Protection" with a Vengeance. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 February 1892

"Protection" with a Vengeance. The British ?.lical Journal states that inasmuch as cremation is illegal in France, bodies which it is desired to cremate have to be taken to Italy for the purpose, and accor* dingly a gentleman who died recently at Paris, left instructions in his will that his body should be conveyed to Milan, and there cremated. Tnis was done July 18th.. The Italian Customhouse, however, levied £14 mport douty on the body when it was brought ntoe the ecuntry, and the came amount as export duty on the ashes as they were carried back to France.

Lillie was seven years old, and the rooster seemed to enjoy her company much better than that of his own kind. In the morning, he could not wait for his little friend to be dressed and come out to play; but his funny good-morning crow would be heard on the top of her front doorsteps, calling her. l'tr mother would seat her behind the screen door, while she curled the chil's long yellow bhair and Mr. Bantam, standing outside, waited patiently for her to be made ready to come out. Then he would stalk along behind her, I although he much preferred being carried under one arm.

The Power of Words. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 February 1892

The Power of Words. The effect an advertcsement has upon the reader is very well illustrated by the following, as related in the lc;?a,?iali A wealthy man who owns a country resi dence recently became dissatslfied with it, and he determined to have another. So he instructed a real estate agent famous for his descriptive powers to aavertise it in the papers for private sale, but to conceal the location, telling purchasers to apply at his oelice. In a few days the gentleman happened to see the advertisement, was pleases with the account of the place, anowee it to his wife, and the two concluded it was just what they wanted, and that they would secure it at once. So he went to the ollice of the agent and told him that the place he had ad. vertised was such a one as he desired and he would purchase it. The agent burst into a laugh, and told him it was a description of his own house where he was then living. He read the advertisement again, cogitated over the "grassy slopes," " beautitul...

It was only reasonable to expect that the vexatious and uncalled for rrgulatione recently issued regarding the wild tobacco, pet birds and other matters would be re sented by the convicta as harrassing and studied attempts to deprive them of harm lees though much valued privileges. The more far seeing of the transportesr rightly judged that the obnoxious new regulations nad a deeper end in view than merely to make the lot of the convicts' harder. The very manner in which the recent laws were carried out proved to them clearly that the alteration of the former regulations were in tended to stamp out any smouldering en bersef revolt that might have been left from the January outbreak. " Nestors in the camp" warned their fellow prisoners in tile camp to be more cunning than the fox in any steps they might take to evade the newly promulgated "orders"' Among the wisest of these prophet...
