AN UNHAPPY EXCEPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
A. LTII|APPY EX'EPTION. The world is full of changes; there is nothing hero abiding. All things are evanescent, fleeting, transitory, gliding, The earth, the sea, the sky, the stars, where'er the fancy ranges. The tooth of Time for ever mars-all life is full of changes. Like sands upon the ocean's shore, that are for ever drifting, So all the fading scenes of earth incessantly are shifting. Change rules the miehty universe; there is no power to block it. There's chaunge in everything, alas ! except a fellow's pocket. Owner of fish pond (to man who is tree ing: "Dont you see that sign--'No n injued air): "Yes; and I disputeit. Why, there's good fishlnghere. Look at this string." The barber can hold another man's jaw when he can't hold his own.

Theoretically. the treatment of beggars in Germany is (says a London paper) of founded on tile thuory that each one is of a bona tide seekcer for work. The com munity praet!cally says to the tramp. " If through untoward circumstances or your own carelessness and wealkness the et public refuge (Verptlcgung - Stationen) a anti houes (Ileimatbhen) cainnot take you in because your identification papers are I irregular, anl you appear more of a vagabond than an uniortunate laborer, we then invite you into the Labor Colonies, where you can remain until you have earned good clothes and a respectable i name. But if we catch you hogging, we s will punish you as a vagrant." This s theory is a good one; but in Germany a the msan who will not work passes throughl these ins...

The Bombardment of Rio. Newspaper readers are apt to imagine (wires the Paris correspondent of the "Daily News") on reading the cable. grams from Brazil repeating day after day that Admiral Custodio de Mello continues to bombard Rio de Janeiro, that this ill-fated city is in ruins. Madame Bernhardt, who has just arrived at Havre, eturning from a tour in South America, was met on board the Portugal by a correspon dent of the " Eclair." The following is the very amusing account she ~rv of the storm ing of Rio : "The first day, deeply' interested, I thought, with a slight shudd and a feeling of anticipation which, shall confess, was nut altogether unpleasant, I am going to see a bombardment.'

"The first shot I heard eva fired at 5 o'clock. I look about with my field glass, but Isee nothing. A second t r...

Hints for Home and Farm; -o---- If the milk had been set in a ran the dirt would not have been found, but the pseparator takes out all of this, and the cream and skimmed milk are both absolutely clean. The brood mare can do farm work and breed a colt at the same time, but must not be over worked. It is said that a horse is more sensi. tive to pain than a man, and as to nervousness he is moresensitive than an hysterical woman. If your horse has been working in soft soil, ploughing or cultivating all day, clean out his feetat night In 10 tons of solid and liquid sheep manure there are 250lb. ofnitrogen, 311b. of phosphoric acid, and 2411b. potash.
