Precocity of a London Urchin. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Precocity of a London Urchin. Tihe colonial youth is supposed to be the smartest example of immature humanity on the planet; but the Parisian gamin and the London "mudlark " could sometimes give points to even the Australian larri kin. Thus the "Westminster Gazette" relates how, on a recent morning, " a little boy, between 14 and 15 years of age, boldly walked into the North London Police Court. mounted the witness-box without hesitation, and, with finrm voice, said. 'Please, sir, I want a summons.' Against whom T' asked MIr Lane. ' ly father, sir.' ' What did he do to you ?' 'Please, sir, he wlhipped me.' ' With what ?' ' With a cane.' 'What had you been doing?' 'Nothing, sir. 'Didyour father not say anything to you befure he used the cane ?' ' No, sir; I wasn't doing nothing, and he only said I mus'n't do it again, and then he whacked me.' ' Mus'n't do what ?' 'Tease my sisters, sir.' 'Oh, you had been teasing your sisters, had you ?' 'My mother said so,' replied the urchin, deter...

Os- Tuesday last at noon a number of farmers and others assembled at Go vernment House at the invitation of the Governor, to get n practical lesson in the making of ensilage. A W. A Woods' reaper and binder was at work cutting a very green crop of oats, which immediately on being cut was carled and put through a Buncle chaff cutter, driven by ono of Danks and Sun's engines, and placed in the silo. The operations were under the able manngement of Mr. David Wi!son, the Government Dairy Expert, who, during the day, was besieged with questions which he was ever ready to answer, and many practical men gained some valuable information on various points and subjects. At one o'clock luncheon was provided on the ground for the visitors ; and at 3 o'clock His Excellenry, with others of the vice.regal party, attended and prtched operations ountil they finished ur tinlg the crop. He then invited all present to pariake of light refresh ments in his large dining hall, w...
Well Prepared. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Well Prepared. During a little riding expedition a gentle. man came unexpectedly upon a country racecourse, and on one portion of the ground found a thimblerig establishment in full work. Notwithstanding the remonstrances of his companions, the gentleman, who was a bit of a madcap, insisted on watching the game. No ' nw, would the gent like to wager a crown he could find the pea?" remarked the expert. "z Yes," was the reply. The money was on both sides deposited, and the pedestrian, lhting up the thimble, pointed out the required pea and took the stakes. A second bet, "double or quits," ended, to the surprise of the'rigger, in the same result. Then a third wager, "apoundornothing," steadied the nerves of the loser, and the trick was accomplished with great caution. The gentleman lifted up the thimble and showed the pea, at the same time pocketing the stake. " S'help me," etc. "I didn't put it there !" exclaimed the bewildered artist. "No, but I always carry my own pea," rejoined the...
Cremation Recommended. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Cremation Recommended. At a " Tuberoulosis Congress," held re cently in Paris, the conolnsion was arrived at that alpersoasedyiig of consumption should be cremated. The earthworms, it was urged, bring the germs of thedisease to the surface, and so distribute it. Does the same argn ment not apply, less or more, toall dying of any disease m the least degreeinfections, or, for the matter of that, of any disease what ever? The only safe course, on this show. ing, would seem to be universal compulsory1 cremation.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. Kisses. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
THE LA.IES' COLUIN. Kisses. The kiss of friendship, kind and calm, May fall upon the brow like balm: Adeepertenderness may speak In precious pledges on the cheek; Thrice dear may be, when yonng lips meet, Love's dewy pressure, close and sweet; But more than all the rest I prize Tho faithful lips that kiss my eyes. Smile, lady, smile, when courtly lips Touch reverently your finger tips; Blush, happy maiden, when you feel The lips which prees love's glowing seal; But as the slow years darklier roll, Grown wiser, the experienced soul Will own as dearerfr than they The lips which kiss the tears away! -Elizabeth Akers. 0
