Anglesey Election Mr. Hunt at Broadford. Large and Rowdy Meeting. Majority Vote Against Him. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 11 March 1892
Anglesey bnsa'ioa b Mr. Hunt at Broadford. Large and Powdy Iecting. Majority Vote Against Him. a ON Saturday evening last a large con- v courss of electors assembled at the Me- t chanics' Hall to bear an expression of t views from Mr. T. Hunt the present member for the constituency of Anglesey. I Mr. William Holwell who took the t chair on the motion of Mr. P. Kenny, said it was unnecessary for him to intro- c duce Mr. Hunt who was so well and a favorably known to them. He hoped I the audience would give their member a good .hearing and he would be very glad to answer any questions at the close. Mr. Hunt, who was received with con- t siderable cheering said he appeared be- c fore them with some degree of reluctance and yet with satisfaction. With reluc. tance because he was called upon to I speak before the Government Policy was i declared-which was useless; and with I pleasure because ever since he had been a member for Anglesey he had been a treated by his constituents' with the u...

A Singlar Dream. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 March 1892
A Singular IDream. The following strange occurrence is etrictly true in every detail-only names are con cealed, and it is vouched for by responsible parties : A short time ago my brother, my friend 8--, and I were strolling out a short way from town when the subjecte of death was brought up, andwe conjectured as to whether it were possible for the spirit of one dead to return to earth and make himself known. After discussing it awhile we three agreed that the spirit of the first of us who died should return and discover itself to the re maining two. We were all young and in vigorous health, sad soon the agreement passed out of our minds. A few months after the above my friend S-- left town to visit his mother in a neighboring village. The third night after his departure I dreamed that I was sitting with the family at the tea-table when a soft rap was heard at the door. I responded to it, and when opening the door, saw my friend 8-ostanning in the hall. His face was bruised upon the ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 March 1892
Srn,-Allow me to ask "Unv.arnished Truth," does he know tho meaning of the word " Christianity "; I presume as he is a devout worshipper at our local Presbyterian Church that he professes to be one. For his information I will define the word 'Chris tianity'; it is to conform to the life and spirit of Christ, To all who know or have rsad the "Life of Christ " it is manifest that " Unvarnished Truth" by supporting a measure that will oporess the poor and en rich the rich, is not conforming to the "Life of Christ." I would recommend him to read Luke iv., i8. Again, the evident spirit in which he attacked the mover of Mr Hunt's confidence motion is altogether foreign to the spirit of our Lord and Master. I would advise the elders of his church to take him in hand and inculcate some of the truths he is anxious to see instilled into our children's minds, into his own heart Yours &c. CHARITY.
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 March 1892
Ste,-In reply to " Unvarnished Truth" I fail to see his reason for putting such aletter through the press as appeared in your last issue. He refers to me as a gentleman, but from the substance of his letter he be lieves me to be anything but a gentleman. I appreciate a man who has the ability to express himself through the Press, but when one attacks my character. I would prefer it to be done without varnish. I would like to have another letter from unvarnished truth, or would like to know his address, that I might know why he and the supposed 75 percentat Mr Hunt's meeting, should maIk such a personal attack on me. Is it because of my political views, or from sorrow that I should be allowed to take the Presbyterian pulpit? Or that I am straying from the Christian path by supporting tlr Hunt? If the latter I would ask ' Unvarnished Truth," as a Christian man, which 1 believe he must be, if he has taken the right course accord ing to the Book of books, in dealing with me. However, as...

Mighty Little Difference. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 March 1892
Miighty Little Difference. The goat eats tomato-cans and each, To the amusement of man ; But what can tickle man's palate So much as an oyster can? THE two medical gentlemen in Vienna who profess to have discovered the bacillus of in flnenza worked in their researches indepen. dently of each other. Inasmuch as neither has yet carried the organism through the test of developing the disease, the announce. ment of the aiscovery is hasty. If it is the "right fellow," it cannot be agreeable to the citizens of Vienna to know that one of their supplies of water, renowned for its parity, contains the influenza bacillus. It was detected in a cubic centimetre of water drawn from a tap which had been allowed to run half an hour. This bacillus has a dark. colored, curved head or tip, and that seems to constitute its main difference from the bacillus in pulmonary disease. Dr. Jollees, one of the discoverers, is a pupil of Dr. Robert Koch, of Berlin, who is eminent in this line of research, and f...

About the House. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 March 1892
A?ount thOe IHouse, I To our great advantage, Amy and I have been trying Hope IIarvey's plan of writing a list of all extra duties to be performed when we find leisure, placing the memorandum in full sight. That they are thus indicated to the vision and not floating in the mind, is a ,help to begin with. In the next place, the worker may quickly analyse the requisitions, assigning each to a certain hour, thus gain. ing much time in applying it appropriately. Then, as each task is done, the ready pencil scores it off, causing the heart to grow lighter and the head clearer, at seeing the formid. iable workdiminishing, while really the hands ;and feet move more swiftly because of this blessed list l It serves another admirable purpcee. There comes sometimes a day, week or month when there is a comparative loll, and this brief vacation is gladly hailed to attend to a multitude of miscellaneous tasks which have been waiting. Now the housewife can go through her domains mak ing a careful ...
