THE SUN, ITS SPOTS AND ITS FINAL EXTINCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 December 1891

TIRE SUN, ITS SPOTS AND ITS FINAL Ex. TISC'TION. The surface of the sanis often strewed with black spots,the smallet of which is as large as the diameter of the earth, and the lareestof which are eometines vishble to the caked eye. These spots, vwich are varible in number and position, nark regions in which the luminous and cohrific activity of the sun is in a state of tenporary diminu. tion. As the great radiant tar is an inean. descent mass (1,37'.000 tines more bulky than the earth) that unemittingly dis. tributesits elements of life tround it, it is continually loosing (thougl slowly, it is tree) the powerful energy that is stored up in it. A say will come in tie distant ages when the soots that are nlre.dy darkening the sun will cover its entie surface. A solid crust will afterward form, as one has formed upon the earls, which also traversed these poases of thelife of a star, for our earth was a sun that had a moon for a planet, and perhaps eca (according to 31r 5tanislas 1Meni...

Separation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 December 1891

Separation. A rose-red mouth, a truant curl, A form of grace divine They won my all of love, sweet girl, They make this poor heart thine, A diamond flashing in thy hair, A flower placed below, A silken gown of texture rare No more of thee I know, Fair maid I No more of thee I know. The years will come and go-ab, me I The years will come and go I More beauty they will bring to thee, To me a lover's woe. And when the wrinkles crease thy brpw, And weary lag my feet, Another's thou wilt be, I trow, For we may never meet, Fair maid I For we may never meet. --L.S. Thompson.

Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 December 1891

Strath Creek. -:o: [FROM OUR OWS CORRESPONDENT.] The frequent rain of the past week. though very unseasonable, is exceedingly welcome here, and there are not wanting signa of its having already done much good in ripening the hefvy e.rops of local fruit. The gronnd about this district is admirably alanted fir this industry, and just now Mr. C. C. llilear has a remarkably floe crop of cherries. The cricket match between the Strath Creek and Spring Valley clubs, on the local ground on Saturday last, had to be abandoned at one period owing to thea retched, drizzling rain, which made it almost impossible to hold the slippery ball. Harris, who was in com mand of the locals sent Esan with the visitors to the wickets, with the result that Spring Valley raked together a score of 84. T. Dwyer 291 sot out, and L. l)wyer 23, were the only doulde figures. On taking the wickets Strath Creek male 00; but as during a racing storm which hurst about this time, two of the Flowerdale men went home, a c...

Cricket. BROADFORD V. KILMORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 December 1891

Cricket. BROADFORD V. KILMORE. [BY BU1TTRT.I GIKS. On Saturday afternoon last the above teams tried conclusions on the ground of the latter. Just at the hour of commence. ment a terriffic thunderstorm accompanied by heavy rain passed over and play was thus delayed until about 3.30 o'clock. Wills, the Kdmore Skipper having loat the toss to Trezise, the latter decided to hbat. Sydenham 25, J. PMcltae 13, Dixon 9, and T. Fothergill 9, were the principal scorers. Tresise, who made the hit of the c ay, was cleverly caught by Murray at "long l eld on " off his second hit. At 5.t5 the innings was declared closed, the score standing at 68 for 8 wickets. Wilson and Guy then opened for Kilmore to the trundling of H.Fothergi.l and j.Hardy, both of whom bowled in fine style. At the call of time (6 o'clock), six wickets had been secured for the small total of 25 runs. The match thus ended in a draw, greatly in favor of the visitors. Notwithstanding the rain, the wicket played fairly well, but th...

The End of the World [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 18 December 1891

The End of the World It would seem impossible that in our epoch of civilization and progres, there could still be found people to anno~nce the approaching end of the world, and what is much more extraordinary, that the could be found other people to give cre ee to them. Such is the case, however. A few charlatans, who perhaps descend om the middle age astrologers, whose ri culous methods of divination they doubt s em. ploy, have recently predicted that t world is shortly to come to an end, the da being fixed by some at 1898, and by Qers at 11901. These grotesque predictionsorn of ignorance, have suggested to us th ides of succinctly presenting to our rea cs the r:tional causes that, according to th present state of scientific knowledge, mig t lead, not to the end of the entire univ4se, but only to that of our world-that is ts say, to the disappearance of life Irom the ts:restrial globe. We hope thus to reassure :hose, if there be any such, whom the predictions of sorcerers or jester...

Jennie and Kate stood at the window. with" disconsolato faces, looking in vain for a patch of blue sky large enough to make the prover. bil sailor a pair of breeches, but it did not appear. . Even Miss Polly, the. usual complaisant doll, was naughty and sulky that morning, Jennie aflirmed, and would persist in tumb. ling sideways in a limp, provoking way when she was set up straight. Kate had just broken one of her favorite toys, too, and felt like being very cross to somebody or somethig in consequence. The boys were in their most teasing mood, plagueing the girl and the cat till, tiring even of that, they had dashed out into the rain, and were just now playing nuch fan. taesti tricks in the fresh mud that it made even patient ...
