Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 April 1892

Obituary. :o: OerrtTVAR-A sad and altogether unex, pected event has occurred duringthe week in the death from brain fever of the infant daughter of the Rev. J.B. Reid. It seems the little one had been ladisposed dudrng the earlier portion of the last week, but there was nothing in its condition to excite rca. sonable fear till Thursday, when the brain appeared to have become affected. The child was almost immediately seen by Dr, Brock, of Kilmore, who declared th. case to be hopeless. Despite this opinion the parents it is needless to say, strove by the most skilful attention to save its life t rl their incessant watching seem(d likely tobe rewarded on Saturday evening and on Sun day morning when the distressing symptoms apparently abated. But during the progress of the morning's service the rev. gentleman was called from his pulpit by the information that his child was near its end. It was not till evenings however, that the spark of life was extinguished. It was buried at St. Kild...

AND REEDY CREEK TiMes. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1892. The Anglesey Election. Tnms important and eeciting event takes place on Wednesday next. Poll ing eomm enoe. at 8 am. and closes at 4 p.m. Mr. R. Ferguson has been appointed deputy-returning officer for Strath Creek, and Mr, Davis for Reedy Creek; but up to the time of going to press, no intimation had been received as to the person who will act in this ca pacity at Broadford. Doubtless party feeling will reach its highest tide on the day of the election; but it is to be hoped that all difference of opinion will be registered, not in acts and words of personal bitterness, but by a deter mined pen at the ballot-box. Both c.n didates have exure-sed their views in a clear and fearless manner, and both have their degrees of merit. Mr. Mc Kenzie, it will be seen, makes a fewv parting remarks in our advertising columns, and doubtless all those who respect him will consider before reject ing the opportunity presented of ...

Here's a Good Yarn. And It Is so Very Original That It Must Be True. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 April 1892

Here's a Good Tarn. And It Is so Very Original That It Must B1e True. A correspondent had been told that there were trout in Big Spring Creek" that long" (iudicating something less than a yard), and ,o, he writes, having no fishline, I twisted a formidable cable of blasek linen thread, anod for some bonrs I patiently waded the stream and tried to convince the fish that my pen. derous tackle was not so bad as it looked; still, they wouldn't even consider the .atter. I had my doubte as to there being any fish there after all, but I threw a grasse. hopper on the surface of the current, and as I watched it drift down over a deep green pool under a ledge of rock an enormous trout rove majestically, much as I have seen por poiees roll, and gathered in the grasshopper, thereby putting an end to my doubts at once. eUll, thinks I to myself, that's a little the biggest trout I ever saw or heard of, and I must certainly make another effort. So, with many misgivings, I set about twisting anothe...

A Story of Justice Stephen. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 April 1892

A Story of Justice Stephen. An amusing story is told of Mr Justice Stephen's testiness on the bench. He was trying a poaching case, and to poachers he has always had a strong aversion. The bar- rister who defended the prisoner was fre- quently interrupted by the judge in the course of his speech. "Really, you ought to know that this is quite irrelevant," said the bench, and, at last: "You are confusing the case so much that the jury can't distinguish between the pri- soner and the plaintiff." "Exactly, my lord," said the counsel, with great readiness. " You have put my case completely. The question of identity is most difficult, for the night was so dark that I don't wonder at the jury mistaking the plain- tiff for my client." There was a verdict of acquittal, much to Mr. Justice Stephen's disgust.
