Henry Kendall. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 9 November 1893
Henry Kendail. o Thou great forerunner of the poet band That shall adorn thy native Southern land, What clouds of gloom and glory intersperse The music and the spirit of thy verso Thy song was always sweet, but rarely glad: Old Austral's Icnely wilds and fading race Were thoughts and themes that ever made thee sad, And left their shadow on thy aind aud face! Thou didst delight to muse and quietly dream Beside some old, romantic.lookiag stream, And, dirge-like, sing thy melancholy lays O'er sable kind and chiefs of other days ! Like pensive whispers from an unseen shorc, Thy broken harp's old 0ounds still linger here; And theysball sweetly haunt us ever Thou uncrown Laureate of this hemisphere! J. K. M.ac1ayo? . East Brunsaw , Victoria, Ist October, 1893. Mr Toolat nail:I euan't imagine what we ever got ied for. We're totally dif ferent at ever single point." Mrs Tooth andnail: "O? u flatterer!"
The Indian Colonel a Munchausen. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
The Indian Colonel a Mun chausen. -0 Mr Edward Braddon, writing in "Black wood " on " Thirty Years of Shikar," deals with the Indian colonel as ifunchausen. " I wonder," he eays, "If the Indian colonel continnes to the present day to play the Moun chausen. Somehow, it always happened in my time that the colonel monopoliscd this role in public estimation, and one might have justifiably believed that the army was traduced, and the civilians let off too easily ir this connection. It was of a colonel (the brilliant if erratio Teddy Oakes) that people told the tale how, being at sea, in a violent storm, when hope was abandoned, and the passengers were bidden to pray, his nearest approach to orison was, ' Oh, pilot; 'tis a fearful night!' It was a colonel who, according to fable, declared that on a voyage round the Cape his hip was spoken (thousands of miles from land) bya man in a tub who would not come on board the ship, but took in a supply of biscuit and water and was left in mid-ocea...

One of the Family. " Are you the editor that takes in the so cie'y items ? " inquired the caller, an noder sized man, with a timid, appealing look on his face. " Yes, sir," replied the young man at the de-k. " I can take in any kind of items What have you ' " "Why, ,t's this way," said the caller, lowering hisvoice. "My wife gave a swell party last night, and I'm willing to pay to have this write-up of the affair put in your paper." "We don'tcharge anything for publishing society items," observed the young man at the desk, taking the proffered manuscript and looking it over. "That's all right." wra the reply. "You don't understand. 1 wrote this up myself, and I put in a line or two that says, 'Mr Halfstick assisted his distinguished wife in receiving the guests.' - That's the way I wantit to go in, and I don't care if it costs a dollar a line.

r. A Bather's Singular Experience. at Louis Norton, a New Haven merchant, te was washed ashore at Atlantic City, New to Jersey lately. Some officials were walking of along the beach near the pier at 11.30 p.m., Ig when they heard a cry for help and saw a 1a ?ansetruggling in the sanur under the pier. ii They rushed into the water, and with con e siderable difficulty dragged the man ashore. 3r He fainted as soon as they reached the * strand. n Next morning he said he left home to go K, bathing.

The Old Camp Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
The Old Camp Fire. Br BEEr Hao-n. Now shift the blanket-pad before your saddle back you fling, And draw your smch up tighter till the sweat drops from the ring; We've a dozen miles to cover ere we reach the next divide, Our limbs are stiffer now than when we first set out to ride, And worse-the hores know it, and feel the leg grip tire Since twenty years ago, old friend, we sought the old camp-ire. Yes, twentyyears! Lord! how we'd track its iueense down the trail, Through balm of bay and spice of spruce, when eve and ear would fail, And worn and faint from useless quest we crept like this, to rest; Or, flushed with luck and youthful hope, we rode like this, abreast. Aye! straighten up, old friend, until the mus. tang thinkuh'ae nigher, ThrounIi looser rain and satirrup strain, the welcme old camp-fire. You know the shout that would ring out before us down the glade, And starts the blue-jays like a flight of arrows through the shade, And sift the thin pine needles down like slant ing...

Wandong. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893
[Front A COtRESPONDENT.] i Au sorry to be the means of reporting one more failure in the schemes of l1r Robertson and other employe~s of the Aus tralian Seasoned Timber Company. These continued failures should teach the com pany's local manager no: to put too much value on his own importance, and to coo sider the rights and opinions of others a little more, for t thinkl that if a few of the influential and independent people of the neighborhocd had waited on Messrs. Mc. Intyre and Fitzgibbon, assisted by these working men, they would have met with some success. But it appears that the TieLber Company imagined that if they I antcd a few miles of water reserve country tlhrown open for cutting timber all they had to do was to wait (with all their employde at their heels) on the Minister for Lands and they would get it, and thereby rake a fortune into the pockets of a few who have enough already; in fact the one aim of'the whole scheme was so evident that it is a matter of surprise to c...

A Battle Incident. o0 The following is an incident from the battle of Bentonville, 'N.C., told by a writer in the "Detroit Free Prees," and is illus trative of the pathos of the soldier's death upon the field of battle:-" A boy comrade and I were curiously watching them inter the Confederate dead, when we came to one poor fellow wearing the blue who was in the throes of death. " A bullet had pierced his brain, which was oozing out, and he had lain there from the day before, when we charged over that ground, with no one to moisten his lips with water. His face was swollen and distorted. My ccmpanion said '1That is a bad sight.' 'Boy,' I said vehemently, 'don't you know him. It's Tommy Smith.' He was his tent mate, appointed the month before to a position with the colors, and who had met his death in the defence of his flag. Hastily dropping to the ground and convulsively clasping the dying man in his arms he sobbed as if his heart would break, and I should have been ashamed of myself...
