iMr. McKenzie again at Broadfor. Criticises the Government Poliey. DEFINES IIlS OWN ATTITUDE. Ox Monday evening Mr. IM. K. Mc Kenzie again appeared before the elec tors of IBroadford, and addressed them mainly upon the subject of the Govern nent policy. C. I. Lloyd Esq., J.P., occupied the chair, and in a neat speech introduced the Candidate. Mr. McKenzie, who was received with a storm of applause, said that he ap peared before them again according to his promise, in order to criticise the newly-declared ministerial policy as un folded in Mr. Shiels recent speech at Casterton. In dealing with that policy he would like to say that while he greatly disliked taking a pessimistic veiw he must submit that the political situation was an extremely grave and critical one -that in fact, it was the gravest crisis the colony had ever known: and they were now face to face with a serious cur tailment of expenditure and very many men needing employment,and with con fidence shaken at home and abro...

Broadford Athletic Club. ANNUAL CELEBRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 15 April 1892

Broadford Athletic Club. ANNUAL CELEBRATION. This eagerly expected sports festival came off according to arrangements on the local Recreation Ground on Saturday last. The interest taken in the affair was immense, and probably' even greater than that taken in last year's sports. The indefatigable Committee had drawn up an excellent and popular programme, comprising 16 events, and every precaution had been taken to in sure an unrivalled success. In spite of their exertions and the enthusiasm evoked, the attendance was disappoint ing. But this was easily accountable. If the sports committee are not in the habit of attributing all their misfor tunes to demonical influence they might be pardoned. If they were tempted to regard last Saturday's weather to be the direct reslt of some adverse super natural agency ; for what possible chance could have made the long sum mer drought end on the very day of the Broadford sports? It was ex-   ceedingly vexatious to all concerned to se...

Modern Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892

PModern Ilnprovements. "Telephone, telegraph, railroad, steam. boat," said the man who never went home, laying down his newspaper, and looking at nothing in particular with a deeply contem. p!ative air. " Now, don't it seem wonderful that all the ages of the world, so far, them things bin layin' useless 'n' undiscovered till the present age, an'. I mought almost say, generation, brung 'em to the front?

The Production of Pumice Stone. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892

The Produetion of Poumice Stone. We often bear it remarked, and partiou larly after an eruption of a volcano, that pumice stone ought then to be plentiful and cheap, as quantities muost have been ejected during the volcanic diotutbatce. As a mat. ter of fact, however, none of the white stone in general use is obtained from active vel. canoes. It is true that Vesuvius has ejected pumice stone, for at the time when Pom peii was destroyed large quantities fell over the doomed city, but that pumice appears t, have been only of diminutive size, and is gray in color, and of the same inferior ebarar. ter as that found to the north of Naples. It is also probable that volcanoes situate in ti.e scuthern seas emit pumice, for accounts ar published now and again of vessels sailing through quantities stretching for miles opon the surface of the water. This, presumedly, is similar to that taken from the sea near the Italian shores. It is small in size, and in the form of pebbles, having been roun...

Making the Best of It. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892

M;Iakin lhe Best of It. ---**- BY EMMA ALICE IP.OWI. Behind the barred and jealous door, Behind the shrouded pane, To sit and con life's failures o'er, And count the cost, were vain; We cannot shut our errors out As we have shut the light; They crowd and compaos us about, And mock us, day and night. So rather open to the sun Your doors and windows wide; Concealment and evasion shun, Whatever may betide; The world forgives a blunt mistake When hon-etly confesscd, If we but frankly strive to make Of it the very best. Take heart I No evil weed I know So rank and wide hath spread But we may root it out, and sow The bitter seed instead; He boasets the crowning common sense, The truest manliness, Who plucks from harsh experience The perfect fruit-success I In Iceland there are no prison and no police. There have only been two thefts in 1,000 years. ThERE are at present 144 less licensed houses in Belfast than there were 12 years ago, when the population was 30,000 smaller than it is now.<...

An Egregious Chump. How a Young Legal Luminary Killed His Father's Golden Calf. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892

An Egregious Chump. How a Young Legal Luminary Killed His Father's Golden Calf. Being told that in one of the Russian law courts there is a case which has been on the docket for more than four hundred years, we are reminded of the humiliating fact that our own beloved country is very young, Still we are proud to say that in the brief time of our existence we have succeeded in aocumulating a large and choice aeortmenot of cases which may not only show cur excellent intentions bus give evidence that in time we will have the most elaborate and costly col. lection of antique law cases in the civilioed world. We believe we have no such chumpieh lawyers as the one on whom the story is told in London. When he was a young man his father retired from prsa. tice, leaving the business to him. Within a week the young lawyer came hbms and proudly proclaimed: " Well, father, I have done in three days what you couldn's do in all the yeareofyour practice."

A Startling Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892

A Startling Adventure. By Lieutenant Murray. A gentleman of Geneva, Switzerland, but of French extraction, named De Poinset, met with a most startlingadventurerecently. He was on his way from Banch to Laybach, and, as he was making the journey on horse back over the intervening mountains, he took a guide with him. The rain had come down in torrents and very much impeded his progress, so that when night arrived at the close of the first day, he was obliged to stop at some shelter, and selected the first that offered, at the soggestirn of his guide. lie found it to be a low and uninviting-looking inn, with but one public room, upon the ground floor. The traveller knew that the character of the neighborhood was none of the best, and did not at all like the appearance of things in and about the house. The company con sisted of a party of charcoal ourners, who were the most sinister-looking set of ruffians he had seen for many a day. They did not seem to make the least dffort to disguise...
