The Last lieceipt. ----,*<-- BY 3IAILY KYlE DALLAS. SI'll tell you a fingiul: story if you want to hear it," said iMrr. Perrier, with whom I boarded one pleasant summer a few years ago. " I am not superstitious, but there is always something that we believe even against our principles, so to speak. "I came into this property when I was very young, through the death of my grand-aunt, Miss Hepsiba Pinchon. "I had only been married a year or two, when she sent for me tocome to her. She had been thrown out of a carriage, and was much injured. " I stayed with her until her death, despite the discomfort of being parted from my hus band the most of the time. " She had nobody rele, and she was very thankful to me. When the died she left me the property, and I was to see that everything was settled and arranged pro perly.

Men and Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892

Men and Marriage. The natural condition of life for healthy adult men and women is marriage. The evi dent intention of tature, or, as we would pre. fer to say, of the intelligent Creator and Ruler of mankind, is the companionship of man and woman in a lifelong union. The Christian Church has always held marriage as one of the most sacred of human obliga. tions, and the large-t branch has exalted it to the rank of a sacrament. It may be allirmed, therefore, that in the judgment ol many of the world's ablest and must virtuous minds, the natural, wholesome, healthy, and happy condition for adult men and women now, as in ages past. is marriage. It is equally true.and, if possible, still more obvious, that marriage in this country for a very large number of men is dillicult, if not practically impossible. To them the prob. lem is of this kind: "If I marry, my wife and myself must live in a house too smallfor comfort, and with a prospect too dark to be contemplated with hope. Granted that...

Flies and Their Habits. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892

Flies and Their Habits. The horse-fly is the most cruel and blood. thirsty 6f the entire family. Ile is armed with a most formidable weapon, which con. sists of four lancets, so sharp and strong that they will penetrate leather. When not in use they are nicely folded away in a sucker. Ife makes his appearance in sum. mer, and may often be seen in the vicinity of small streams of water. lHe is said to subsist in part upon an airy diet, and to pass his life harmlessly. Not so the female, for she is armed with six lancets, with which she bleeds both cattle and horses, and even human beings. She lays her eggs in moist places, and after they are hatched into foot less maggots, they make all necessary journeys by stretching and closing the seg. ments of their bodies, their heads being sup. plied by two hooks by which they get their food. In process of time this maggot goes down into moist earth, where it reposes for some weeks, after which it bursts the popa case, and comes forth a large ...

A HORRIBLE DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 February 1892

A HORRIBLE DEATH. A leading member of the American bar who was somewhat intemperate in his habits was obliged to consult a physician. The latter examined the invalid's nose and breath, and then said : "You must take one drink   loss every day." "One drink less every day Holy Moses!     If I take one drink less every day, in about six months I'll not take any more at all. Why, that is killing me by in ????.

Broadford Police Court. (Before Mr. Keogh, P.M., and Messrs. C. M. Ross and P. Kenny, J.'s P. MICHAEL ZWAR V. JAMES MACDOUGALL This was a claim of £43 19s. on the part of Plaintiff for damage to a flock of sheep committed by some dogs owned by the Defendant. Mr. King appeared for Plaintiff and Mr. Sandilands for Defendant. Mr. King on behalf of his client stated that on the 4th, 5th and 6th of November, 1891, several dogs owned by Mr. MacDougall entered a paddock of Mr. Zwar's and destroyed 30 or 40 sheep and injured many others, invol- ving a loss to Plaintiff of £43 19s. Mr. Sandilands for the defence ad- mitted the injury done to the sheep from the cause stated, but contended the assessment of damages to be ex- tremely excessive and that the asser- tion as to the number remained to be proved. Mr. C. Thompson, She-oak Hill, was called, and deposed that on the days in question he saw three dogs of Mr.   MacDougall's chasing and worrying a flock of sheep in Mr. Zwar's p...

The Anglesey Election. MR. HUNT AT ALEXANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

The Anglesey Election. MR. HUNT AT ALEXANDRA, [BY A SPECIAL REPORTER.] As per advertisement, Mr. Hunt ad. dressed a number of his constituents in the Shire Hall, Alexandra, on the even ing of Friday last. There was a good attendance about 270 people being pre sent, but at least a sixth of that number were youths, who were debarred by their age from exercising the franchise. Mr. \V. Whiting occupied the chair, and everything passed off smoothly enough until Mr. HIunt had concluded his harangue, a detailed report of which is unnecessary as it was simply a re capitulation of his Yea speech, the lan guage used being almost identical. As soon as the Chairman announced " that MJr. Hunt would now be happy to answer any questions that might be put to him," signs of the coming storm were distinctly apparent; and although Mr. Whiting made several attempts to assert his authority hesignally failed in main taining that command over the meeting which is necessary to the carrying out of the proce...

THE Government dairying expert, Mr David Wilson, has furnished the Minister of Agriculture with an official report for the season almost closed, It is as fol lows ;-To the Honourable the Minister of Agriculture. Sir,-I herewith enclose annual report of the dairy section of your department. The number of factories and creameries erected and in course of erection is now 236, and still increasing rapidly. Old settled districts possessing rich lands, that have hitherto stubbornly shut their eyes to the benefits of a factory export butter trade, are now becoming alive to its advantage, and are converting old gaols and flour mills for the dairy man's use to manufacture butter. Taking S8o as the number of factories and creameries at present working, the quantity of milt run through this year will not fall short of 30,294.970 gallons, which could be doubled by growing green feed or ensilage for autumn and winter; the average price paid 4;d per gallon tot...

Rats, Rats. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Rats, Rats. A writer in last month's Chambrs' Journal repeats the method which is in quite general use here for the extermination of rate. These animals are the wisest of domestlc vermin, and any means taken for their des. truction is, as a rule, quickly discovered by them; it not, the terror alone engendered by the ever.diminiehing trite, is sufficient to cause them to flee the mysterious power which haunts them. Taking advantage of this trait, the writer in question constructed atrap for the rats. This wasa water barrel carefully concealed. On the top was a trap. door (simply balanced by a pivot in the centre), and beyond this some food was placed for which the rats had a strong liking. They could only get to this by walk. ing over the door, and in order to entire them, the door was fixed for about a week then the bolt was drawn, and for several nights a plentiful supply of drowned rats rewarded the ingenuity of the rat killer, and the remainder of the colony sought "fresh woods a...

Brilliants. Gently I took that which nngently eame, And without scorn forgave; do thou the same. A wrong done to thee think a cat's-eye spark Thou wouldet not see were not thine own heart dark. -Coleridge. Forblind to poverty the worldling goes, And soarce sees rage an inch beyond his nose ; But from a crowd can single out His 3race, And cringe and creep to fools who strut in laoe. -Churchill. Woeful shepherds, weep no more, For Lyeidae, your sorrow, is not dead, Bank though he be beneath the wat'ry floor: So sinks the day star in the ocean bed, And yet anon repairs his drooping head, And trioks his beams, and with new spangled ore Flames in the forehead of the morning sky. -Milton,

Sketcher. Island of Mystery. Santa Catalina—Its Former Inhabitants a People Whose History is Lost. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

SLctculcr. Isl?rendl voi AlUtscr'yl. 0----- Santa Catalina-Its Former Inhabitants i People Whose History is Lost. To those who are not wholly distorted by man's inhumanity and a protracted resi. dence in polluted cities, an island is iner. presoibly poetic, inspired, presumably, by its natural inaccessibility, its hazardous ourroundinge, its undeveloped resources, and the weird glamour that hangs above a detached bit of carth, alone, isolated in the midst of a wide, watery waste. In the minds of most dwellers among brick and mortar and stone, an island-particularly those of the South Seas and in the region of our own semi.tropic shore-it linked with luxurious vegetation, luminous scenes, cooling springs, dense ehade, gauzy mists, and violent waves. There is not a discovered spot on the face of this fair land where these and their accompanying concomitants are furnished with greater prodigality than Santa Catalina, California, says a correspondent of the PhiMaddrkia Timne. It was nam...

Romantic Notions. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

eonantitc Iotions. Girls who read too many love stories are apt to have romantic notions of life, and look upon every good leoking young man as a eort of hero. Don't be so foolish, girls; talk to the young men you meet as uniffectedly as you do to the boy friends of your brothers, or, if you have no brothers, and, therefore, no brothers' friends, as you do to the neigh. bor lad who, mayhap, ' does chores" for your father. Do not imagine when you meet a gentleman that your conversation must be remarkable or unusual to be entertaining. The bearing of an intelligent and gracious gentlewoman is one always to be cultivated, but this should be erery day behavior. You should have no company manner. Assume no extra demdanor simply becaoe yo4uare in the society of a young gentleman instead of a young lady. Dl you suppose that the strang geutleman you meet is a typieal novel hero. He is no more a hero or romance than you are a heroine. You are both just plain, every day humanity. Don't get fo...

Jugglery in India. --4-- - Live Animals Produced at Will, and Lowered from Ethereal Space. --+4-- 1 Bishop Lysander G. York, a famous Oriental traveller, has arrived from India. For the last twenty seven years Bishop York has been a missionary among the Hindoos, during which time he has not ant foot on other than Indian soil. He has penetrated the depths of the jungles, dis tributing tracts, and spreading the light among the wildest and most heathenish tribes in all India. During his sojourn abroad he has had the opportunity of study ing the various phases of Hindoo life, from the high rulers of the land to the humblest native. "I believe in giving every man his just doues," raid the bishop, " whether he be prince or pauper, Christian or heathen. With the facilities at the preent day for carrying on research in foreign lands, it seems to me that fuller and more accurate reports should be made of what is reen and heard.
