Correspondence. We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. THE REEDY CREEK CHURCII. To the Editor of the Broadjord Courier. Slt.-I really regret to break my proimse and again trouble you, because my word is my hoor ; but in this case I must say to honor " Get thee behied me.' I suppose, also, that, if it is admissable for an ordained C'hurch clergyman to say that he "' won't bother you any more " aind then deliberately without the slightest apo!ody, thrust on your valuable space three-fourths of a column of matter, an unfortunate _Nancounfortnist like myself m?ay do likewise. In the first instance, speaking for mys.elf, the hasty opinion " that anonymot-i writers seem ashamed to sign their lettets " is mnl strously impertinent anld ultchl:t:i.tn like. It surely does not follow tlat because a person writes an:nn,,: n dy !e musnt be ashamned of what he write. I tllink if any one ought to be ashamed of their production it is our opponent, but p?::has...

Another Expedition to the Pole. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Another Expedition to the Pole. Professor Ekroll, of Berlin, intends to have a " dash at the Pole" at an early date. He intends going upon the lines followed by Captain Parry, R.N., who in 1S;" attained the latitude of 82deg 4 .min, which remained as the-" farthest orth" record for upwards of hell a century. Mr J. G. Jackson, another arctic voyageur, takes Franze Josef Land as the base of his operations, and this route, according to many Northern travellers, has much to recommend it. Mr Robert Stein, an American adventurer, proposes to make a surrey of the western coast of Ellesmere-Gemmell Land, and to "conduct observations of magnetic phenomena by photographic methods, as well as of gravita tion by means of the pendulum, in a more thorough manner than has heretofore been possible." As part of the journey will be made over high land almost devoid of snow, he proposes to try the quality of camel transportation in the Arctic highlands. The employment of these animals is an entirely n...
A PERFECT RACECOURSE. THE TYPICAL RACE OF AUSTRALASIA. THE MELBOURNE CUP IN THE SIXTIES AND NINETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
A PERFECT hACECOURISE. THIE TYPICAL RACE OF AUSTRAL ASIA. T1 7HE 3MELBOURNE CUP IN THE nm SIXTIES AND.NINETIES. id By Eqrus. 'Y Thirty-three years ago the wrandsutnti on ty the Fleminrton Racecourse was sh:ated from st the riverside, near the bridge, to the site of . the piesent structure. At the first blush it would suggest itself to tnose who know the Fleminnton course of to.day, that the fathers of racing inll \telori must have been wilfully blind to t natural advantages atflorded by the rextensive and singularly suitable area S"occupied by the course. Seeing it as we do now, it appears incomprehlensble that thle k winning post should ever have been placed at any spot other than under one of the glorious slopes to tile west and northwest of the reserve in the vicinity of the spot where MIr Il'Culloch will on next Tuesday week be called upon to note the finish for the thirty-third Melbourne Ctp. Those who remember Melbourne of the late fifties and Sthe early sixties, however, are ...
The New Moon. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
The New Moon. A new moon anchors in the sky- A golden boat That, when the waves of sunset die, Does calmly float Through opol deeps that never rise In wind-toseed spray, Through shoreless seas in whose soft dyes The bright stlaz stray. Each night a longer voyage it takes, And brighter gleams; t brings to every part it makes A freight of dreams. We sight it when the sun goes down Towed by a star; It brings sweet leisure's lotus crown From lands afar. Untouched by stain of earth it drifts Serene and bright; In Heaven's jasper walls some rifts S ustr lend it light. Oh, golden boat, what starry marts Your bright sails know! . o, bear a freight of love to hearts We miss below. -ADLEcLa F. Dccc.
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
HBEE GlU THEIE, Br TrE M?aC ABnosrr TowS, Times are very bad. We none:o of us know what we may come to. One hears of whilom millionaires who are now earning a precari uns livelihood by cleaning windows and digging front gardens, and of company mongers who have been actually forcod, by pressure of circumstances, to gain an honest living by doing something useful. Such in stances are very pathetic, particularly those of the latter kind. When you are constantly hearing of such cases you get inured to anything. Therefore I was not startled speechless when, the other afternoon, coming up Swanston street, I saw Victoria's most millony millionaire with his nose almost flattened up against a pork butcher's window-quite as near to it, that is, as the brim of his hat would permit gazing musingly at the display of three pennypr,rk pies, black puddings and snsagces. He stood suitline and peering there for a minute or two, wondering, no doubt, what they tasted like. I half expected to eeo him go...
Be Careful What You Say. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Be Careful What You Say. In speaking of another's faults, Pray dmn't forget your own; Remember these in homes of glass Should seldom throw a stone. If we have nothing else to do But talk of those who sin, 'Tis better we commence at home, And from that point begin. We have no right to judge a man Until he's fairly tred; Should we not like his company We know the world is wide. Some ma have faults, and who has not The old as ell as young; Perhaps we may, for aught we know Have fifty to their one. I'll tell you of a better plan, And find it works full well To try my own defects to cure Before of others tell. And though I sometimes hope to be No worse than some I know, My own ahortoming bid melet The faults of others go. Then let us all, when we commence To slander friend or foe, Think of the harm one word may do To those we little know. Remember, curses sometimes, like Our chickens, "roost at home." Don't speak of others faults until We have none of our own. ,--"FreetanL"
Peers and Barenets. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Peers and Baranets. A privately-printed return is being circu. lated among Liberal members in view of the coming struggle with the House of Lords. It gives particulars of peerages, steps in the peer. age and baronetcies confirmed by the several Governments which have held office since 1S30. During the majorpart of that period the Liberale have been in office,and they have, as amatter ot course, created more peers than have been made by Conservative Ministers. The numbers are, in fact, 20S against 120. Of the baronetcies created since 1530, 253 have beenconferred by Liberal and 155 by Con. servative Administrations. Taking into account the space of time at their disposal, Conservative Ministers have created peers and baronets at a much more rapid rate than that of their political opponents. Since 1SS5 Lori Salisbury has made almost as many Peers as have been orcated by Mr Gladstone since 186S. He has made one Earl, one Viscount and 43 Barons. In addi tion to this he Las raised one Il...
Horses in the British Army [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
aB Horses in the British Army d Writing to the "Live Stock Journal," a con tributor states that the last returns of the number of horses, including riding and draught, also mules, used in the service of the army, 0. showed the total number to be slightly in ex )f cess of the number provided for in the enti mates. Altogether there were nearly 2~,000 e horses, of which about 15,000 were in the British t* establishment, the remainder being on the to Indian. The cavalry, including the household Sregimente, took up the greatest number, there being about 19,000 horses wanted for this r divesion alone; but the oflicere, of course, pro :e vide their own horses. From this estimate it would appear that there are nearly two men to every horse. The artillery claim over 11,000 m horses and mules, these figures comprisng the r hones used in the gun teams; while about s 3,000 are used for riding purposes, and 150 pack males were employed by the mountain batteries. One hundred and twenty horses *e ...
A Drove of Bullocks in a Dock. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
A Drove of Bullocks in a Dock. o Recently as a drove of bullocks num bering about 140 were being driven from the Canadian shed to the Woodside lairage at Birkenhead a singular accident happened* On the river sids of the Alfred Dock there is a narrow undulating bridge recently placed there by the Mersey Docks and Harbor Board for the purpose of conveniently trans ferring cattle to the lairacee. The bridge will allow two bullocks to pass abreast, but the beasts became jammed, and one of them leaped into the Alfred Dock, and was immediatey followed by 34 others. The scene in the water was most ex traordinary, but, strange to recount, one of the bullocks swam to the eteps and walked out in the most intelligent fashion, and was followed by eleven otlhers. The thirteenth, however, slipped back into the water, where the remaining 21 were swimming about for a considerable time. Ultimately a number of men put off in boats, and tying ropes round the beasts drew them in to the wall, and thus s...
Advertising in Evening Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Advertising in Evening Papers. A legal advertisement has been inserted in the "Australian Star," Sydney, and Judge Owen morahised thereon: His Honor said he had seen the "Star," but he confessed he knew nothing about it. It was a very unusual thing to publish a notice of this kind in an evening paper, es pecially in a paper that had only just been started. He did not think it lesirable that the advertisement should appear an only one evening paper. He could not imagine that an evening paper had the same circulation as either the "Sydney Morning Herald" or the "Daily Telegraph," l'eople who looked for this kind of advertisement were mut h more likely to look for it in the other paper." The "Sydney Iulletin" offers a pertinent oemment upon this. It soys : "Th'ie "Star" has been about six or seven years in existence, and Judge Owen "knows nothing about it," and thinks that it has only just been started. Truly, newspaper making is heartbreaking work. A news. paper, to be a success, lhas...
Something New In Preaching. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Something New In Preaching. It seems that the devouring enterprise and inventiveness of cur Traneantlantic relatives has aucceeded in pressing photography into the service of religion. There are pulpits in the United Statee--t least, so it would appear-where " photographic" or illue. trated sermons are habitually preached. The clergyman has an electric but ton close beside him, which at a certain point of his sermon he presses. The immediate result is that the lights are lowered, and the congregation are gratified by seeing a representation of the place or in cident to which their pastor is referring preo sented to it by means of a photographio elide. It is not said exactly where or how the picture is exhibited. We may suppose that the slide is reproduced on a white sheet, after the time-honored method of magic lanterns, or even upon the whitewashed wall of the building. i'ossibly the front of the pulpit is utilised for this purpose. This is a matter of some doubt, but what is quite...
Hints for Home and Farm. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
Hints for Rome and Farm. 'The flower tradeof London is estimated to amount to £3,000 a day. The strength of the horse is equal on an average to thatof seven and a half men. An Ameriean paper states that more pounds of pork can be made irom an acre of cloverthan from an acre of maize. ~apthaleue, which is the product of coal tar distillation, in appearance something like paraffin, has been found useful in England fcr the preservation of timber. The wood is soaked from two to twelve hours in the melted nepthalene at a temperature of about 300deg. Fobh. In 10 tons of solid and liquid sheep manure there are 2501b. of nitrogen, 31lb. of phos phoric acid, and 241lb. potash. In the same amount of cattle manure there are only ?:1b. of nitrogen. 7llb. of phosphoric acid and lllb. of potash. These figures are sufficient in them. selves to show why the foot of the sheep is goldento the land. To find the live weight of anu animal, measure the girth close behind the shoulders, and the length fro...
A Dangerous Explosive. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 3 November 1893
A Dangerous Explosive. Mr J. Alfred Wanklyn writes from the Laboratory, New Maldon, Surrey to the "Daily Chronicle," 11thSeptember: " I have had a very wide and varied ex perience with explosive substances-wider and more varied than that of any other living chemist. My experience in this direction dates back thirry.-ve years; for in the year 1858 I received a mony grant from the Royal Society in acknowledgment of successful work on the most combustible and dangerous compounds known to chemists and discovered by myself. Since that date I hive frequently been engaged in investigations on explosions of many kinds. My attention has been called to the reply of Sir U. Kay-Shuttleworth to thelasr questions put by M1r Hanbury, show ing that our naval authorities are now pre pared to allow cordite to be stored in the magazines of her Majeety'e ships, and to be heated up to 100deg. Fahrenheit in those magazines. " The presence of nitro-glycerine in cordito renders cordite a treacherous explos...
