CHAPTER II. PAX IN BELLO. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 5 February 1892

PAX Il 5eLLO. A golden morning, and such a one as tl one only sees about half-a-dozen times vc during a New Zealand autumn. The sun, t1 glinting in upon the large dining-hall at li Fernbrook, flashed back a thousand fold to reflections from picture and mirror and T from the costly glassware and plate scat- ts tered profusely over the table. It is a Il noble hall, and of vast dimensions. Its v Yittings and furniture are mostly of Maori I woods, dark in hue, but massive in their g character, and polished like English ti oak. i Looking round this apartment, the idea t comes to you that the architect who built a Fernbrook had erected a feudal castle and I supplied it with ail the modern improve. t ments and embellishments of the nine- t teenth century. A glorious morning, indeed, the warmr. sunlight illuminating spacious courts and t galleries with its mellow glow. Out on f yonder balcony-where a regiment of the line might parade with ease-whlat at view I Beneath, sward and lake, and I ...

Zbc ýroadfor.d touticr, AND REEDY CREEKr TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, z8gr. What is Capital? TIEnRE iMas one pointju st touched upon by Mr. McKENZIE in his recent speech at Seymour, which front its vital con nections and its present need of em phasis might fairly claim a little fuller treatment. In condemning the injurious effect of Trades Hall influence upon the commercial credit of Victoria, the Can didate took a flying shot at the insane socialistic doctrine that Capital is not essential to Labor. lThis most in sidious and threatening of social fal lacies, which may he regarded as the basis of others equally pernicious, has, Mr. MOKENZIE would appear to in dicate, at last found a onme in the ac tive brains of the Trades Hall leaders ; for he instances Mr. Tnvsn?on-? as non td,,oi v fer it. r Wtthout attempting to e rgue the notion M.r.

"Confound-say, that's not square," but he paid the money. Dumley (who pretends to " strike" Brown for a five.pound.note): "Brown, I'm in bad shape, and I want you to do me a favor." Brown: "Anything, Domley, anything, but lend you money; I'm hard up my; self." Domley (who sees his case is hopeless): S"Brown, did I ask youtolend me any money? Did I say a single word about money? The favor I was about to ask ie-but never mind never mind-" Goes off with a touching air of having been misiudged. "O'RnFERTT,." said a judge, "your wife swears you struck her with great violence." " Wid great violins, whin there is devil a fddle, big or little, on the praymeses? She exaggeratestoo mooh entoirely, yer honor. 1t was wid me boot that I rebuked her."

FUNNIOSITIES. The Crusty Bachelor on Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 February 1892

FUNNIOSITIEN. The Crusty Bachelor on Woman, She could sing like any siren, and write poetry like Byron, She could tell you all the mysteries of as. tronomio lore, She had memorized Euripides, had been to the antipodes, And could tLlk o0 well about it that you'd ne'er think her a bore. She was young and she was pretty, she was stylish and quite witty, And her family tree was planted when the Druids lived and foueht; She was rich-ae rich as Croeeus-but not fickle or capricious, And in all her hife she never did a thing she hoadn' ought. She did not, like other women, practice wiles men thought inhuman, And her culinary poweres were unlimited, I ween; While I live I shan't forget her-no one could who e'er had met her, But, alas! I only made her ewcet an. quaiotance in a dream.

Strath Creek. [PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Tue rabbits are having gay times here; farmers with striking generosity are re galing them with jam and apples, though the large quantities of strychnine in the third meal has caused hundreds of the unfortunate bunnies to be found each morning dead wfth stomach-ache. Six hundred were found dead in one paddock alonefrom this means. Some of thegraziers have been using phosphorised grain with good results.

Cricket. On Saturday afternoon considerable interest was evinced in the cricket match between teams representing the juniors of Kilmore and Broadford. . 'he locals batted first, A. Williams and W. Temple opening fire to the trundling of O'Donnell and Murphy. After Williams and Temple were disposed of A. Eaton and N, McLeod appeared and for a time the play was right merry, but Eaton in negotiating a 'yorker' played across it and was clean howled. After this the wickets fell rapidly: N. McLeod (2o)and J. Ross (to) who played remarkably well, were the only ones to stand and the innings closed for 76. Kilmure then went to the wickets but owing to the deadly bowling of C. Eaton met with little success. Sudgen (9), McKenzie (4) and Bennock (4),were the highest scorers and the innings closed for 26. In their second innings Broadford again ' laid on the wood,' with the result that the total reached tot runs, to which A. Eaton (48), W. Temple (23), Reid (6) and Eaton and Ross (S each) were t...
