The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 1892. The Water Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
AND REEDY CREEK TINES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL I, 1892. The Water Scheme. IT is earnestly hoped that no ordinary preliminary difficulty will be allowed to discourage the people of Broadford in their determination to possess, when so possible, an abundantsupply of pure water. Having put their hand to the plough, we are tempted to urge, that not so much as a look should be cast back, when so enviable an object is in view. But wise men never under estimate difficulties, and none but fools will tot:ally ignore them. After all, success of any kind is but the just ap plication of m."anc to ends-which re duces this intangible phantom to a mathematical certainty. But because of this a comprehension of the neces sary conditions is always imperative, and must, even in tile case of a water supply, be dilhgently ascertained. IHere we may remark that the municipality is indebted to the Shire Council for the the very instructive consideration it gave the subject at its last monthly ...

Thie Windsor Murder TItE public excitement in connection with the Windsor and Rainhill trage dies continues unabated. A large crowd has assembled daily outside the house at ,which the Liverpool murders were com nitted and, overborne with mad excite ,ent the people broke through the "ordon of police and stormed the buil ling which the owner has now resolved to demolish. The search for further discoveries there has now been completed without any developments of a especially exciting nature. Swanson was des patched from Perth on Eriday morning an routse for Melbourne via. Guilford and Albany. On the way from the inland towns to Albany the Prisoner was sub jected to strong demonstrations of an all but unmanagable horror and hatred on the part of the crowds of spectators who everyiwhere lined the route in a fearfully :xcited condition. lie was hissed and hooted, while a woman mustered courage to tling a stone through the carriage aindow, and others shouted ' Lynch him,' 'Drag hint out an...

Manure for Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
lManure for Fruit. ----:o: IT is equally important to fruit growers to know what kind of fo i and what class of soils are best suit J to yield the largest amount of fruit, as it is to the farmer or tllhe gardener to he in possession of such informal ion respecting his produce. With this view, Professor Shutt, of the Ottawa Experimental Agricultural Sta tion, has directed his attention to the chemistry of the apple. He proposes to analyse the fruit, and the old and young w,ood of the tree; and from the data thus amassed, it is cofidlently hoped that the fruit grower will be able to as certain, with more or less accuracy, the nature and amount of those fertilising elements withdrawn from the soil by the apple tree in full bearing. This will be the first step towards a more rational mode of applying manurial substances to orchards and garden fruit borders. Professor Shutt says it must not be thought that, even if we knew the exact composition of all the parts of an apple tree, and the ...
The Sultan's Harem. How the Ladies Live, and all About Them. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
The Sultan's Harem. Low the Ladies Live, and all About Thom. There were more that one thousand women in the harem of the last Sultan, and there are probably as many in the Imperial serPglio of Abdul flamid. The number is recruited every year by elaves from Georgia and Circassin, and it is a curious thing that none but slave girls can be a part of the Sultan's female establishment. All the Sultans of the past have had alave mothers, and it is contrary to the custom of Turkey for the Sultans to marry. The reason for this is the prevention of political intrigue which might arise from an extended Royal Family, and Mahmoud II., the grandfather of the present Sultan, to make his throne more safe. sewed up the one hundred and seventy-four wives of his predecessor in sacks, loaded them with chot, and dropped them into the cool waters of the Bosphorus. Hte had a P.Ryal harem himself, however, for all that, and when I visited the treasury of the Sultan the other day, I saw dozens of mirrors s...

Snakes in the Dance. A Horrible Exhibition by the Mo[?]ual Indians in Arizona. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
Snakes in the Dance. A Horrible Exhibition by the Monui Indians in Arizona. -4---. This annual festival of the Most Ancient Order of Snakes dates back to a period in remote antiquity. It is not a religious ceremony, but is simply a public demonstra. lion of a mysterious secret society, similar to the Masonic Order in some respects. An eye witness says t't he participants were composed of two bodies of men, 3S of whom danced with the snakes, and a smaller num ber who formed a chorus of singing men. Thee ltter were the first to come upon the scene, and were dressed in bright coloured embroidered kilts, sashes, anklets, and with beantifully tanned yellow fox skins hanging down behind the body. They bore small rattles in one hand, while in the other was held a stick, to which was fastened a couple of turkey feathers. This stick, they claim, carries thonecessary protection of one's life, and lets the snake's tutelary gad know that none of his progeny will be injured or carried to remote ...

"Yes, but what has that o do with at1' "Why, you see, darling, I was waiting frs a car, and that was the only dry spot on at e street,' Is it not going into extremes to lay down as a hard and feit rule that no two perenns can habitually sleep together without loees of health-that invariably one will thrive and theother lose 1 Yet it is a euriose fact if a young child sleeps in the same bed with an elderly person the child dors not thrive. and no doubt it would be better if too custom of seperate beds were more universal. According to a French authority, much of the nervousness and discomfort which people complain of when they rise in the morning is due to the fact that each docs not dleep alone, and that there are electrical charges going on in the system during the night which work desetr.ctive reuolt to three who aleep together...
