Popping the Question. Charity in a Woman Excuses Blindness in the Man She Loves. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 February 1892
Popping the Question. --------*** Charity in a Woman Excuses IBlindness In the Man She Loves. -------·• .---.--- Nothing is more deplorable than an inter' val in a proposal of marriage. The matter should be gone through with speedily once your attack begins. It is an attack always. No matter how ready-hearted Angels may be there is a little perfunctory hesitancy, only natural to her modesty, and you must not give her the opportunity to turn the current of her wooing. I)o not atop to tell her that you only take three glasses of claret with your dinner, or that you don't ose a cent in the world. Information of this sort you ehould convey to her l?ng before you ask the momentous question: it is revelant, no doubt, and may abet your effort greatly, but yet it is preosai and out of keeping just at the moment of crisis. The more nakedly you confine yourself to declaring your love and asking her hand, the better. Bear in mind always that a proposal partakes of the nature of an onslaught ; ...
Spring Valley. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 February 1892
Spring Valley. [FROM OUR OWN CORRES'OXDENT.] THE Flowerdale cricketers paid us a visit on Saturday, and won in a splendid fas hon the return match against our own team, the scores bLing 55 and 19. For the visitors Hilliear secured 6 wickets for 4 runs, and Craig 3 for iz. At the fall of the last wicket the teams adjourned to a capital spread upon the ground, pre pared by the great kindness of the Misses Brown, Law, Evans and Doherty. About a fortnight ago Mr. John Bry ant, of Doogalook, met with a serious accident. He was engaged squaring a log when the axe he was using slipped cutting off three of his toes. He was con veyed to the Kilmore Hospital where he is now progressing favorably. On last Saturday his brother, Joseph Bryant, was seriously injured, though in a somewhat different way. He was leaving a road he was repairing in the neighbourhood of King Parrot, when in getting into a pas sing dray he unwittingly plunged his knee upon a pair of sheep -shears with the re sult that h...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
CEHAPTEII II. The shades of night had fallen with un. usual deliberation. They bad fallen to the extent of about 3 a.n. R:ev.Wobbles awoke with a start. There wa. someone in the house-someone who was stirring stealthily. Rev. Wobbles was not a coward. lie arose and proceeded to investigate. Ife heard sounds in the back parlor and went there. The burglar was there, and his dlark lantern made his visible to the naked eye. "Abem," remarked Mr. Wobbles, by way of introducing himself. "Throw up your hands," hissed the bur glar. levelling at the same time a seven shooter at Mr. Wobbles. To the distorted vision of the parson the weapon seemed to be snout isd caliber. Yet he was not sore afraid. " My friend," he said, with an attempt at that facetious ness for which he is noted, "I have not eaten my hands." And standing with arms akimbo he calmly faced the now astonished burglar. - Well. I be slugged," ejaculated the mid night lawbreaker. He wasn't accustomed to this.

CHAPTEB 1. A recent paragraph in the Su:nday Iheral greatly interested Rev. 2Dr. Wobbles. It stated that Rev. Hugh O. Penteeost had said that if he should find a burglar in hi. house he would go to him unarmed and *. talk to him as I would ton friend whom I desired to help. If he then desired to tak, my goods I would make no protest, nol would I cause his arrest. I would follow him to the door and invite him to come again." As he read this Mr. Wobble' face beamed with sympathising assent. " That's what I call good common sense," he remarked, hall aloud, "If Providence ever sends a ourglar to my house that is just the way I trust I shall have the grace to treat him." Ahl how little the reverend gentleman knew sf Ike present, let alone of the future. Even then Ite burglar was on his way to him,.
He Wanted to Stop the Interest. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
He i? antedt to Stop tire Interest. A physician once dined with an old mer* chant, and when they came to the wine, a dusty old bottle was decanted by John, and pasred to the host. Taking the bottle he filled the doctor's glals and handed it to him. Then, pouring out another glass, he held it up to the light, and said: "How do you like that, doctor ?" "I think it is a fine specimen of old port." "Now, can you guess what it colt me I" said the host. "Sorely not," said the doctor; "I only know that itpie excellent." " Well, now, I can tell you, for I made a careful estimate the other day. WIhen I add the interest to the firet, I find that it costs me just the sunm of four shillings and sixpence per glaso." '" Good gracious ! You don't say so ?" said the doctor; and then, draining his glass, he presented it again, with the remark, "Fill it up again as quick as you can, for I want to stop that compound intelest." Osn may be better than his reputation or his conduct, but never better than...
Removing Paint. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
IReinoving Paint. The ordinary process of scraping old paint, or burning it .ff, is hardly expeditious enough for general purposes, and is also laboriots. Soda and quicklime are far more thorough, and the paint is more quickly removed. The solution of half soda and half quicklime is thus made. The soda is dissolved in water, the lime is then added and the solution can be applied with a brush to the old paint. A few minutes is sufficient to remove the coast of paint, which may be washed off with hot water, Many preparations are sold for the removal of paint, all of them having some basis of alkali. A paste of potash and strong lime is far more tflectual it operation, and she oldest paint can be remo;ed by is. After. ward a coating of vin gar or acid should be used to cleanse the surface before repainting. One authority on the subject recommends the gasoline lamp, a quart of oil being sulli. cient to larst 3 hours. The mEthnd is con eidered superior to gas, as the flame is stronger an...
THE LAST STRAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
THE LAST STRAW. I "Didn't know that there were so man; blamed idiots in town until yesterday,' said a prominent citizen of the north end, as he pulled his chair up by tho stole in the little corner drug store, and bit ch the end of a cigar, preparatory to taking a smoke. ,Why, what do you mean ?" efil the druggist. tJust what I say. I suppose that thert are just as many idiots in any other city of its size. and is will not do to lay it Iop against the town, but there is one thing sure; there is a smart Aleck class of men here who ought to be ashamed. Say, Uncle Jim, you are about eighty-five years old now, ain't you I" "Yes," eaid the old settler, as he took a chew of fine-cut. "1 was eighty-five last month." "Well, tell me. Do you remember when it first became customary for a man's ac quaintances to accuse him of buying game, on his return from a hunting trip?" " No," replied the old settler, " that dates way back of my time." " Now, gentlemen, that being the case, you will all agr...

While the fiddles are being tuned, and the players are preparing for honest Philip 3Massinger's masterpiece, let me take up the wand of Hermes and put back old Father Time by six years. Tihe world was younger and brighter for Victorine Hargrave, then only a strip of a girl, just over her eighteenth birth day, a birthday at which there had been an innocent drinking of tea at Major Hargrave's cottage, on the cliff overlook ing the Waitamata. Major Hargrave is a widower,and as poor as Job. He is a man who has seen much life. He has fought forDon Carlos, and derives his military title from his service in Spain. Paris, Madrid, and London have in turn been his home. lie has spent someo portion of his days in South America, and is not unremembered in Mexico. But at sixty-seven he has had enough of a nomad existence. It is pleasant to remember his wander ngs anrd relate Ihis ...
Articles found in an Etruscan Tomb. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
Articles found in an Etruscan Tomb. A fine glass vase, just discovered in an Etruscan tomb at Bologna, is of a sea-green color, like a soda water bottle, thick and of a unique form, with two handles. It is nine inches high and without ornamentation. There is not a single defect, flaw, crack, or chip about it. With it was found an ivory chair, made after the fashion of a modern camp stool, having all its screws and rivets still in :perfect condition, and a small casket containing besda and some very elegant articles in bronze. The articles are supposed to date from the fifth century. The tomb in which they were found was closed at the top by an enormous globular mass of atone as fresh as if it had only been fashioned yester. day. The baker pays his employes good wages and pays them regularly, and yet some of them knead bread, " See here, waiter, how is it that I find a trousers button in this salad "' "Dat am a part ob de dressin', sah." ,uwe "Too much absorbed in his business" was t...

There was a very snall attendance. Mr. C. E. Lloyd occupied the chair, and after a few introductory remarks called upon Mr. Lyall to read the report for the year.

Site drandford tourier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1892. Mr. McKenzie's "Infirmity." HOWEVER innocently devoid of tactical art Mr. HuNT may be, even his most enthusiastic supporters will be prepared to admit his speech at Seymour, and that more recently at Yea, so far at least as they related to his opponent, were hardly the essence of refinement and gentle manly courtesy. There are those indeed, who think they contained some very re prehensible allusions made in a very re prehensible manner; and one of these in particular was his reference to what he was pleased to term \lr. AcKENZIte's "infirmity." To the honor of the' Dual' Candidates opponents, and as a mark of their generous sensibility we will say, there has not, even amid the political hatred engendered by party conflict, been any public allusion to the defective eyesightfrom which Mr. McKENZIE is generally known to suffer. But under the petext of condemning " the false hearted coward ...
Cures for Sunburn. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892
Cures for Sunburn. Here is the best prescription that can he made: Burn yourself a little more, and the red will turn brown, the wholesome and be. coming color in summer time, The same role applies to freckles equally well. Freckle yourself thoroughly that it may be evident at a glance that you are taking a course in nature's university. If the face smarts after a day out of doors hot water will take out the sting. Cosmetics are especially injurious because the smart means irritation, and lotions and balms, oftener than not, are poisons to an irritated skin. Complexion troubles are doctored by frequent bathing of the person where any applioation to the faee will only make them in the end worse. Per. feet cleanliness, as a role, means a good ekin. If it does not, then the general health is at fault, and the only remedy lies in giving a better tone to the system. A clean face is a charm which manoy irk do not seem to appreeiate.
