AND ReenD CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MARCH 4, I892. The Cause of Personal Liberty. Tin principal reason assigned by the more consderable portion of the com munity for the serious colonial crisis through which we are now passing, is the conviction that the threatened suc i sess of the soeialistic party will ine vitalty lead to their coutro!l of the legislature; and that, as an equally certain consequence, anarchy and cots. fiscation will prevail from the utter sub version of those laws of property and of personal right, by which all national prosperity, ?l;hnd even civilization itself, has been s'iwlv built up. 'And the object of tle N.ational Associaiion, at cording tute tenor of Mr. lialssRe' earnest sp.ech delivered at the Society's gr?at rleeting last week, is an organized coiuter movenout t of citizens to promote and preserve the right of personal liberty.

Strath Creek. [FROMt OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] 'of. Creamery is progressing tavorably. About irG gallons were put through on Monday morning; and fresh supplies are I coming daily. Things are therefore look ing quite lively. One man with an irri tating perverity of will has thou.ght fit to withdraw hissupply: however, the comn pany are n t absolutely dependent on the milk of everyone, and will have the option of allowing the farmer in question to take his cans home withoutunloading, when milk becomes plentiful-for one good turn deserves another.

It has the injurious elIect of causing the animals attacked to waste in condition an ' leaves after a short time with a nasty hacking cough.

A Fatal Delay. The young man had been trying to tell her how madly beloved her for over an hour, but couldn't pick up the courage. "Excouse me for a moment, Mr. Featherly,' she said, " I think I hear a ring at the tetk. phone." And in her queenly way she swept into an adjoining room. Presently she returned, and then his mad passion found a voice. "I am sorry, Mr. Featherly," she said, "to nosee you pain, but I anc already engaged Mr. Sampson, learning that you were here has urged his suit through the telephone." BrazEn--" I want you to love me; but I regret to say that I am only a poor devil, Still I have a rich old uncle, but he enjoys good health -" Miss Piazza-"Married?"

The Good Millionaire. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
The Good Millionaire. It has become a sort of custom for people of this world, who are not endowed with riches, to " have it in " for millionaires, as the saying is. That is, very many look upon the millionaire class as no good on earth. The poor do not generally begrudge the millionaire all of the enjoyments for him self and family that money can procure, but when it is so hard for the poor to get enough to eat, of the cheapest kind, and when they are cramped for money to buy warm clothing, and when the coal is scarce, and children suffering, it is not strange that they envy the millionaire. It is very hard for a poor father to see his children hungry, and to see them shivering with the cold, when he is unable to provide them with suitable food and cloth. inn, and when he looks at his neighbor, the millionaire, and knows that the cigar be is smoking, and which he will throw away be fore it is half used up, costs enough to buy a whole Esit of warm flannel underwear for his little gi...

How Monkeys are Caught. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
How Monrikysarc Caglat. Almost all the monheys which one sees in the Gorcona district, which is situated a etort dietance from the PRanma railway, is inhabited moctly by native necron:s, for no: white man could bh.r the climate withood drinking plenty cf wlhity and almost coil steatly swral!ovring q:iin*. The whole region is marthy,and covcred with entremely profuse tropical vegelttion. All night there ariles a thick varor, laden with fever, whieh hangs over the woods like a cloud. This region of wood is the paradise of the monkleys. They travel in troops around tht woods, lcd by an older rpontey. Whern the people receive the inforrmrtion that the "travelling moln.ey tro.pb" ere near the village, they repair to the woods in crowds in cihse of them. The plan is very simple. They cut a hole in the cecosnut large anough fora monkey's raw. Then the nut isthen ho! lowed out, and a piece of sugar is placed is it.

The Regalla of Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
The IcCgalla of Scotland. During the usurpation of Cromwell there. gslia of Scotland, consisting of the crown, sword and ereptre, were depceited in Dun. Otter Castle-a stronghold situated on a lofty rock, overlooking too German Ocean, on the eastern cost of Scotland, in the shire o: Ktincerdine. This castle was only acecs. bible by the land side, and that merely by a narrow, strop, and rodinding path, over a deep gally, wlhich connec:s it to the mainland. The then Earl of Kincardine beicg ap pointed one of the commiaeioners for maneg. ing the Government while IHis Majesty was abroad, Mr. Ogilvie, to whom the defence of lDnottar was intrusted, finding it so closely invested that it could not long hold out, pre. vailed on the wife of the minister of Kinecf, a bldl and prudeet woman, who happened to be in the castle at the time, to ase:iat in conveying them away. This ebo did by packing them up in a hnndle, as things of no value, and walking boldly out with them. They were afterwards h...
The Human Ear. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
The ?lunlann Ear. Few people realise what a wonderflll. delicate structure the human ear really i , That which we ordinarily designate so is, after all, only the mere outer porch of a series of winding paessges, which, like the lobbies of a great building, lead from the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are full of liquid, and their membranes are stretched like parchment currains across the corridor at differens places, and can be made to tremble like the head of a dram or the surface of a tam. bourine does when struck with a stick or with toe fingers. Detween two of these parob. ment-like curtains a chain of very emall bones extends, which serves to tighten or re. lax these membranes, and to communisate vibrations to them. In the innermost place of all a row of white threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point to which the tremblings or thrillinge reach and pass inward to the brain. A wonderful piece of mechanlem, indee...
Esquimaux Dogs. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
Esquiznalul Dogs. During his wonderful eledge journey from Hludeon BIay to the Arctic Ocean, Frederick Sehwatt:a had abundant oppor. tunity to learn the habits and the disposi. tion of the Esoqumaux dog. Ile started out with sixty of them, using them to draw the sledges, and only nineteen were alive when he returned to IHudson Bay. The others had died, mostly of starvation. Ilo says: SThey were through all this horrible time perfect respecters of their human allies, and the little children used to go among them and play with them by pelting them over the back with their toy whips; and yet the same dogs were starving, and should one of them die his comrades would eat him. I noticed this particularly, as some eensational writers have tried to make their readers be. lieve that the Esquimaux dogs are liable to become dangerous fellows, even to a power. folly built man, when simply hungry, and to be worse than wild beasts when ravenous. Any onslaught of Ecquimaux dogs is un. known among ...
Brothers and Sisters. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 4 March 1892
Brothers and Sisters. Brothers and sisters are all the better for sharing one another's studies and games up to a certain point. The girl who can handle a tennis rmcset and a croquet mallet vindicates her right to consideration. The boys will oever speak of her as "only a girl," and she will be all the franker and none the lees sweet for a healthy mixture ao work and play. Good comradeship between the brothers and sisters is a thing much to be desired; it saves the girls from prudery and the boys from boorishness, sweetens the natures of both, and acts by resetraining every one from doing or saying what would be shameful in the eyes of the "other side." It will take a good deal f courage for the social reformer to lit on thbe buI wire i~g?,1
