CHAPTER XIII. MAUD CARLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
CIIAPTERI XIII. IAUI) CARILINOTON. Tihe days are gladsome days for Ralph Warne, in the beautiful August weather, and in that grand ruined old city by the Adriatic. With a boldness, surprising even to himself, the young colonist has told Prince di Ronmaine all, even to that episode at the Sravo's Leap. The banker opens his eyes inl wonder, and almost lifts his shoulder-blades to the tips of his ears in one amazing shrug ; but the Ita lian is a man of the world, and though proud of his name and his race as any Spanish Don of the Alhambra he sees that his darling, M3io Care, might do worse than marry this handsome milord the sot of his English friend. At first the Prince assumes a stern un yielding front. It is the policy of his clique not to give way readily. Violante is very young. She may change her mind by-and-bye, he argues. Iesidcs, his young guest may find a suitable wife amongst the fair dames of his own nation and so on. The combined efibrts of the lovers, however, soon storm ...

The Homestead League of Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 April 1892
Thle olltnest eutl League of Victoria. Tun announcement by the Prmnier of his strong and 'practicel sympathy with the villiage settlement movement has had the happy effect of giving an im mense impeltus to the interest taken in this new phase of social development. Social ideas we are aware appec,,; vastly different in the sm,ber hles ot concrete reality, than when surr.unled with tihe ideal splendor of a speucnlative theory; and perhl:ps the ' limestead League ' on paper may not he quite the Hlomestead League, of future fact. But the project has all the advantage of being supl.orted by strong common sense. Its oblject is to settle the people of our overcrowded cities on the soil and thus to place them in direct com nmunication with the true source of wealth, to lead themr to give up the artificial mode of forced existanceand return to nature. It is to pave the way of naior,nal development and of future ma';erial greatness, not by building showy patlacs of ornamental stucco,and by g...

"'hlri.sty ol0d Organ." W\tTq the highly commendable object of rendering some pecuniary assistance to the delbourne Home tor I estitute Children, this popular story was read at the Presbyterian Church on Friday in the attractive garb of a service of song, to a large and appreeiatireconregation.
