The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1892. Theoory versus Practice. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, z892. Theoory yersus Practice. A oESERAL election is understood to be mainly valuable for the new life it in fu-es into the Parliamentary organism ; and the Biological principle which teaches us to look to the new wood for the coming fruit causes even political veterans to turn with interest, if not with hopefulness, to the utterances of stroggling genius, whose force of charac.er has at length lifted to the prominence of the hustings. Among other noticeable things it is not a little amusing to observe with what ability ardency for political honors can trim its sails to the shifting breeze of popular opinion, and the almos' en viable ease with which a fastidious conscience can, with proper manage ment, adapt itself to an unpleasant environment. Thus last week Mr. JosKE comes before the electors of South Melbourne a candidate for that constituency in a bri:liantand remark ably breezy speech. He is so unfor tunate, ho...

No. II WHO CAUSED THE REVOLT? [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

No. 11 WHO CAUSED THE REVOLT ? The Trades Hall party and those who sup po-t them, are now filled with the most con lhcting emotions at the unlookedl-for insur rection which has arisen against their power. It is apparently such disloyalty to their prin ciples to lay down the proposition that thrift is entitled to better representation than thriftlessness, that the great souls of the gentlemen aforesaid are filledl to overflowing, and they dond it ditficult to determine w thther their better course is to till the air with lamen tations at the perversity of this untoward generation or to stand in the middle of the road and swear at large. Now they are inquirmtg who has caused this revolt or what has caused it, and others opposedl to them are asking the same question. .s I am a .nan filled with benevolence and the milk of ihuma kindness I propose to try and calm their agitated spirits by giving thetn an atnswer. It may not be sweet; but, like mtedicine, though disagreeable to the taste,...

THE "BULL" PUMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

THE "BULL" PUMP. ' Whoat time did you stop itf" " Three o'clock this morning." "Then the pump's more than half full of water ?" " Yes, it'll overflow the bay by noon." "The middle valve's clogged you say I" "I think that's the one.' .The leather is probably worn out." "Get a new leather in the press directly, and send for Joe." "It" was the large bull pump at the Mar. vine shaft ; the questioner was my father, Samuel Rogers ; and the engineer who stopped the pump was working on the nigat Ehift that week, NewriekiFeatenby. I i was Joe. The pump, being the topic of the above conversation, is now entitled to Eomefnrther consideration. It is of English origio, and is used extensively in the middle coonties of England and the southern counties of Wales to pomp water from the shafts, hun. dreds of yards deep, that abound there. The principle of its working is a very simple one. The steam cylinder is in an en. gine-room on top, and directly over the shaft. standing vertically, several feet...

UNDER SENTENCE IN NORFOLK ISLAND. AUTHENTIC RECORDS. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] No. 12. THE HEAD CONSTABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

UNDER SENTENCE NORFOLK ISLAND. AUTHENTIC RECORDS. -- ¢. - (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED) No. 12. THE HEAD CONSTABLE. - Although Convict Theodore Dixon had never actively shown signs of madness, there is no noubt that the mysterious mental dis ease which baffles all scientists, must have been latent in him, for on the day of Bradly's murder he had to be secured in a straight waistcoat through his violence. The queer manner which had earned for him his nick name was but the outward sign which told of the deficiency within. Like Vesuvius and the thin column of smoke, men knew that something out of the ordinary was present, but no one could tell when the quenticential volcano would burst forth, carrying destruc tion in its train, The head constable was especially pleased at the turn affairs had taken. Bradly was becoming inconvenient to him. He knew more about Scanlon than he wished him to. Now he was out of the way, and Dixon would soon follow him, for there was not the least doubt about his be...

Noblesse Oblige. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 26 February 1892

Noblesse Oblige. What is diviner than the peace of foes ! He conquers not who does not conquer hate, Or thinks the shining wheels of heaven wait On his forgiving. Dimmer the laurel shows On brows that darken; and war won re pose Is but a trace when heroes abdicate To Huns -unfabling those of elder date Whose every corse a fiercer warrior rose. O ye that saved the land ! Ah yes, and ye That bless its saving! Neither did forget The price our destiny did of both de. mand Toil,want, wounds, prison and the lonely sea Of tears at home. Oh, look at these. And yet Before the human fail you - quick ! your hand ! -John ROBERTSON UNDERWOOD.

There was, as. might be supposed, a greatgathering of the clans, and indications were not wanting to show pretty conclusively that the event constituted a sort of redletter day in the district.

Harvest Rome Social. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892

A PLEASUtABLE event occured last Monday evening when the congregation of the Episcopalian church assembled with a number of specially invited friends to a Harvest lHome Social at the Me chanics' Hall. The notice had been necessarily brief, but all that the untiring and inventive enthusiasm of the workers could do to make the evening heartily enjoyable was, it goes without saying care fully attended to, and the large room presented quite an interesting spectacle when the whole of the guests had as sembled. After a slight delay a pro gramme was hastily improvised; and with the advent of Mr. Whitchead-the em bodiment of rordiality--the proceedings commenced with a spirited song , Nancy Lell " volunteered by Mr. Harris. After a short interval for con versational intercourse, Mrs. Crowther favored with an expressive rendering of the song, " Ilome they brought her warriors dead."

SprIu g Valley. --o [FROM O?. OWN CORRESPeONIsNT.] CONSIDELb?LE interest and alarm has been experienced here during the past veek by raging bvr? fires. There has been a very large one at the upper portion of Spring Valley, which broke out on Thursday last. After several earnest but ineffectual attempts it was finally extinguished on Monday But the ' devouring element ' has not confined its insatiable greed to the stores of light wood and grass, but on Sunday night at S 30o, attacked a house belonging to Mr. C. Doherty, consisting of 4 rooms besides a dairy and a stable, all of which was completely burnt to the ground. Fortunately no one was in occupation of the premises at the ti:ne,which deepens the mystery as to its origin. Sympathy is felt for the owner as the place was uninsured. On Monday evening the hat close weather suddenly yielded to another change, and a violent South wind brought on a torrent of rain which seems however, to have had veyv little influence on the bush fires...

Japan's Feast of Dolls. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892

SJapans Feast hof Dolls. A peculiar;:y of Japaneno stores is that only such goods are displyed as are appro priste tothe reason of approaching festival. Instead of displaying a gorerl stock of goods, as do all cnu dealers throughout the year, as soon as the festival is over they are immediately pseled up and laid carefully away for another year. For two weeks a reat number of stores and street pedlars have been exhibiting a great display of all kinds and eizes of dolls, together with every. thing thereunto belonging in miniature. Th~e reason for all this is that on the third day of the third month is held the "IHina Matsuri," or, as it is generally called, the " Feast of Dolls." It is devoted to the girls, and is considered by them the greatest day of the era'on, and in years gone by was duly silebrated by all families with great pomp, o:remony and preparation. Of late years thoas who are called "progressive" Japan eSe erem to have ignored the custom to a great extent. Moat of the d...
