Ladies Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893

Finland has 200 total abstinence socie ties. The number of members is about 11,000, a third of whom are women. Swedish women often work as farmi laborers. Those that have babies often carry them on their backs in a leather bag, as squaws carry their young. This plan permits the mother to use both hands at her farm work. Brigham Young's first wife is described as a sweet, dignified woman of seventy two, of medium size, with a gentle face, kindly grey eyes, and grey hair, drawn I back over either side of her temples. Louis Kossuth, the venerable hero of 1 Hungarian Independence, is rising 89, and is a hale-seeming, sentally-alert old man of picturesquely patriarchal appear ance, with ruddy cheeke and a flowings white beard, whilst Ins scant locks are habitually covered by a silk skull-cat,.

AGRICULTURAL COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893

AGRICULTURAL COLUMNIM Veterinary surgeons have abandoned the feam almost to as great an extent as medical men have thelancet. Blood-letting was once a fashion in treating the common ailments of man and beast. Present-day practitioners maintain that the operation is useless when not danger one, and therefore at all times to be condemned. Professor Penberthy, however, addreseing the Lnecolnshire Veterinary Medical Asoooiation England, a short time ago, asked, "t Has not the reaction been too radical? Should it be so die carded? May no useful purpose be served by bleeding?" IIepoints out the advantages of blood-letting in cases of congestion of the lungs and in " embarrassment of the right side of the heart." Its usefulness in such cases consists in its rapidity of action-the immediate relief it giveato theengorgement and clogging of these parts of the internal machinery. Similar viewe were copressed a few years ago by an eminent medical men as to the disuse of the lancet. The higeet s...

HERE AND THERE, BT THE MAN ABDne Tower, "The schoolmaster is abroad" with a vengeance. Mr and Mrs Squrers up.to date have developed a fresh talent. The original prdagogues of that name,according to Dickens, regarded all the boys in the school as" their properand natural enemies, or, in other words, theyheld and considered that their businees and profession was t get as much from every boy as could by possibility be screwed oaut of him." Mlr and Mrs Squeers, now edition, appear to have trans. 'feere their screwing from their pupils to members of Parliament i This is truly alarming, but we have the authority of the Premier of the colony for esying that it is so. Directly anything is mroposed in the House, the effect of which rill be to affect the salaries or comfort of the State School teachers, they appear to flock down to Queen's Hall and put on the " screw."

The Shiels' Divorce Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893

The Shlicls' Divoirce Act. "TnE Chief Justice, who is presiding this month in the D)ivorce Court, finds material for painful retlection in the peti tions which come before him. On more than one occasion he has deplored the slipshod manner in which many marriages are effected, in the expectation, appa rently, that they may bo undone in the same fashion; and yesterday his Honor was still more severe. lie was struck by the fact that in so many cases the marriages were so recent and by the absence of that sense of responsibility and obligation that should attach to the married state. Advaniage was taken of the Divorce Act in a way which he was sure the Legislature had never appre-. hended. Marriages so lightly entered upon and so lightly broken were nothing better than a device with which to cloak immorality. The evidence which came before the Court from time to time indi 'd- anenta leegle4 on the part of mothers of their duty to educate their daughters for the duties oflmarried life.
