North-East and South. NOTES ON LOCAL AND GENERAL AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Norlh-Ealst anti outth. NOTES ON LOCAL AND GENERAL AFFAIRS. (Br Wx.eow.) JUsT as Lord Brougham uttered those famous words " The schoolmaster is abroad," about the time of the founda tioD of the first Mechanics' Institute in England, we may now say that the farmer, the fruit grower, the butter factory manager, and the irrigationist are very much in evidence. 'he coming season will be an interesting pne for our butter export trade. The Danes will fight as strongly for the London butter market as they did the Prussians in the Schleswig-Holstein war. But the serius question so far as Victoria is concerned is " will not batter making be overdone ?" The future alone can supply the answer. Now, as to ensilage; I have frequently been asked by dairy farmers in the North-Eastern and other districts how to make a cheap silo. The great difficulty with ensilage has up till the )ast'few years been the pressure. But now pressure can be done away with. If excavation is expensive the silo can be mad...

WIT AND HUMOUR. "You demand high waees/' said the mis. trtes of the house ; "but I am willing to pay good wages to a good girl. You are prepared to give eatisfaction, I eanpose, in the matter of references ?" "As to references, mum," replied the woman in the gay bonnet, "I don't require 'em. References is out of place between ladies." The General-" I've bcught you a new took, Aunt Emily-by the new French Academician-I'm told it's very good-but I've not read it myself-and so I'm not sure it's quite-a-quite correct, you kuow."

"You boilthe water, Iouppose?" "Not now, doctor; it's so thick we bake it."

Co-operation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Go-operation. Thus does the s.cretary or the National Co-operative Festival, held in London, azwser the not infrequently asked ques tion, "What is co-operation ?" It is a means by which all any obtain competence without robbing others, and the rich may help the poor without plauperising or patronising them. In true co- operative workshops and stores shareholders receive interest on their capital, the customers receive disidends on their purchases, and the employes receive dividends on their labor. Thus all interests are reconciled, and as customers and workers participate in management, the mass of the people are educated in the control of industry for the conmmon tood. Trueco-operators are anxious to extend the operations of co operation to the promnotion of social enjoyment, home comforts, a taste tor flowers. music and art, and to all cood things tending to spread happiness and contentment. Alwas keep the s net free from vermin. Both the sitting hen and the snust should be sprink...

A Fortune Out of Waste. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

A Fortune Out of Waste. Forty years ago, near every silk ware house, was a great pile of rubbish, the refuseof the works. Hil-smelling, full of leaves, sticks, deadsilkworms and imperfect eceoons, it was a most unattractive mass to go to work upon. Warehousemen sold it, when they could, as a fertiliser, and were often glad enough to give it away to secure its removal. Not one person in a thousand would have looked at it a second time, much less thought of it as a source of wealth. But it atlracted the attention of br S. C. Lister. He saw it contained a vast amount of good silk, whiah wou!d be valuable for all fabrics permitting the use of short threads, and set about inventing machinery that would sort out all the silk in those great piles of rubbish, amounting in every centre of silk raising to thousands of tons annually. Fortunately, soncess had already crowned hislabors in other directions, and he had time and money as well as great in ventive genius to give to the work. By wash ...

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

THE WIDE WORLD. Amongst the treasuretrove which has come to light lately as the result of Hellenic excavation, none has been more enthusiasti eally heralded than that which was discovered theotherday atDeceleia, namely, the cranium of Sophocles. Already (says the " Lancet ") it has been sought to throw a damper on the delight of the discoverers by suggest. ng doubts as to its authenticity--and er tainly the Greek record as to such "'salvage from antiquity," whether it be a coin or a manuscript, a tomb or a eranium, is not so in rariably unsullied as to absolve the finder from the most stringent proofs of bona tide'. Controversy round this latest prize of arch e. ology has waxed so warm, indeed, that an arbiter has had to be constituted an arbiter who to classical learning adds the screcely less appropriate qualification of anatomical and palhontblovical knowledge' Professor Virchow, at Berlin, is the authority to whom the contending camps have con sented to appeal, and by his judgme...

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

The Corinth Canal. o The newly-operied Corinth Canal is about 80 feet broad all the way from Isthnia and Posidona. At the latttr place there is a harbor protected by two moles, cn which lighthouses are to be erected. At that end there is alsoa ferry. The bed ofthe canal is of concrete through out,anda pathway about 8ft in breadth, cut out of the rotks, runs along the whole length of it on either side. At present this struck a German traveller as being rather dangerous, seeing that there was no raihng! ; but he was assured that ample protection would soon be afforded. iLt a locng account of the opening ceremony, whicic has appeared in aGcerunn paper. it its said that several ?.wkaard accidents nearly occurred on that occasion. While the procession of 15 ships was passing thlrough from Isthmia, sever'sl hoats and ships had un expectedly entered the cnani at the other end, and some slight colhisians occurred. As it was, one of the menl-of-war got thbrouh with socme difllcclt). The tram...

Casualties to Sportsmen. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

Casualties to Sportsmen. Writing on the numerous casualt'es which befallsportsmen in the field in those days, the London '" Daily Telegraph " says:--" During the last few years shoot ing accidents hare been of such frequent occurrence, that in one of the most fashionable clubs of the West End-a club not exceeding 800 members in num ber-there are said at this moment to be no fewer than ten members who bear In their faces evidences of having been maimed or marked by gunshot wounds. Since the substitution of the breech loader for the muzele loader the increase in shooting accidents has been alarmingly great. In the more careful days of of old, when shooting was confined to comparatively few, and when many ownlers of pheasant coverts refused to allow any of their guests to shoot with more than one gun, which each was comn pelled to load for hislse!f, accidents were almost unknown. Those were the times when such famous shots as the old Sir John Shelley-the racing confederate of the fifth...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 13 October 1893

HERE ANDII TIERE, BY THIE MaE Anour Towx,' tl Surely is the wind tempered to the shorn w lamb. Amid the general dulnes, and the h thousand and one troubles, due principally to 01 the wreck of booms and the crash of banks, , there is a crumb of comfort. An oasis in the Ii desert, it would be nice to call it, but, if Imis. I take not, Treasurer Carter has used thatfigure cl during the week in some remarks about "the S loan," and, toasy the least, it is rather too " early to employ it again. . I stick, therefore, tothe crumb of comfort trope-one plea- a santly alliterative, and, so far as it goes, solid. The welcome crumb was dropped by lr C.W. a de Vis, who at the Congress of Scientists held in Adelaide last week contributed a paper on "The Diprotodon and Its Times." So far I have not been able to find a report of this literary trifle. Yet we may live in hope that it will be published with the "pro ceedings" of the congress. By the way, if the thing could be got into print within, say...

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

Spring Valley. -o- (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MR. H. G. Carver, who has for some time been in Melbourne under the care of Dr. Stirling, has now sufficiently recovered from injuries received through a fall from his horse, to return home, and is progressing as well as can be expected. Mr. H. Cleeland on Friday last was thrown from his horse, and received an injury to one of his arms. Two or three Spring Valley cricketers have thrown in their lot with the Flowerdale club, and there seems little or no prospect of a club being formed here this year. The payment for milk by results so far as the testing is concerned, is giving satisfac tuon at Spring Valley, but tire producers are of opinion that the standard price is too low. The milk supply at the creamery is daily increasing and a separator of greater capacity is urgently needed. Mr. D. Walker, of Glenburn, met with a nasty accident and severely injured his spine whilst in Yea last week, and is at present in a critical state.

Australian Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

Australian Women. o- Julia Nicholson has a brief paper in the ",North American Review' for July upon Australian women, which is well written. Its note is that the Ansuralian girl is very precocious : Before the English girl has outgrown childish delights the Australian is a womanin miniature, self-conscious, self-confident, not easily abashed, with eyes that long since have ceased to look upon the world with wonder. In a short skirt, with a plait down its back, young Australia imitates its elders, flirts, falls in love, and, sometimes, reads and writes funny little love.letters in all serious ness. Very youthful, very innocent all this in its way, but the way itself strikes one as just a little precooious Like her brother, the Australian girl has a ss as to what she learns, where she goes, what she wears. In fact, she brings herself up under easy supervision. - Grown to womanhood, the glitter and glamor of life already tarnished in her sight, she Is withount reserve, possessed of fe...

THE MATTEI CANCER CURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

THE MATTEI CANCER CURE; Unusual prominence has lately been given to the subject of cancer in Victoria. A discussion upon the subject among our medical men, the death of a prominent statesman froem the terrible disease, and the publication of statistics showing that this most terrible of all nature's inltctions is upon the increase within our borders, are particular reasons that have focused public attention on the autbject, and made us all ready to hear anything that may show the possibility of a cure, or even of alleviationt. We have all heard of the Mattel cures. The d:suoveries of Count Maltei, sotoe tiimeago, aroused quite a sensation in Europe, and it is claimed fot the experimenlts that have beetn tried with these liquid electricities that theyt have elected cures cf an extraordinary character. Knoting of these. we were interested to hear of the arrival in Melbourne, on a visit, of a confirn:ed Matteit physician, who has been prominently involved in the cancer controversy that...

The Head of the House. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

The Head of the House. -o A little bird sat on a cherry tree limb And a dear httle maidenlistened to him, Fcr each word of his song, though loud and clear, Was meant for nobody else to hear. "Sweet! Sweet!" he said "You'll surely agree, That the man the head of the house should be." "That's all very well for a bird, you know," The maiden answers in accents low," "But the woman, I think, has the right to reign As sorereign queen of her own domain." "Sweet! Sweet ! "sang the little bird saucily, "The man the head of the house should be." "But what it it happens," the maiden said, "That the very one I may choose to wed Though worthy of love is too weak to rule, Many a woman issuch a fool.". "Sweet! Sweet! "sang the bird as she made her plea, "The man the head of the house should be." Away flew the bird to its cosy nest, Deep, deep sank his song in the maiden's breast, And she found it true as the hird had sang. In thesummertime when the maid was young, " The man thehead of the housesho...

:o: TaE weather in this locality, of laite. has been mild and favoruable to the growth of grass and crops. The supply of milk to the creamery is gradually increasing and on Tuesday last reached 466 gallons. If all the dairymen in this pa.rt patronised the creamery it is esti. mated the supply would exceed I,opo gallons per day. The system of payment by results appears to' he giving satisfaction, and is growing in favor. .Mr. Green recently had his milk churned separately, and the Babcock tester and the output of butter showed a difference of only ha'i.a-pound in 33 pounds. The last meeting of the Athletic club unfortunately has net been so successful as former ones. This year the club started with a credit balance of something like £1t and I am informed the balance that will remain after the payment of all accounts in cotirection with las: meeting will be £7, and of this £5 remains yet to be collected.
