I asked, astonished at his heart. lessnese. "The water of Luke Superior is so cold that a man cannot live in it during the tines it takes to stop a rapidly movin3 veesel and lower a boat," he replied. Then he added: "I have sailed on this lake for twenty years. poring that time I have known many men to fall off vessels. I knew of one manonly who escaped death. lHe was saved by a scratch. The others were apparently killed by the sho3k produced by falling into such cold water." lie picked up an empty esn to which a long string was attached and east it ovcrboard. The can skipped from the crest of one wave to that of another for an in stant, and then dipped and filled. The hoary-headed mate drew the full can up and handed it to me, saying: "Take a drink of that and then say ;what you think of your chances of swimming...

The juggler lays a handher. chief fat on the grcound, and then begins to sang and besat on the tom-tom, when in the centre of the handkerchief something begins to stir and rise in pyramidal form, dilaoieg until just about the size of a pineapple, whon the conjuror inserts his hand under the handkerchief and pulls out a rips pine apple. " I watched his trick several times before I could get a clue to it. The motion of life puzzled me. But one day I took a position on the side-the conjurors eit on one side of a circle, making the spectators form the rest of the circomference-where I could see the juggler's motion n.ore clearly, and I noticed that one of the confederates put a bag, like a sailor's bag, near the conjurer's tands.

A Delicious Java Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892
A Delicious Java Fruit. Travellers in Java have filled pages and columns with rhapsodies over the mangoeteen and all unite in extolling it as the supreme delight of the tropics. The mangoeteen ap. pears to one as a hard, round fruit the size of a peach. Its hard outer shell or rind is of the same color and thickness as a green walnut, but in this brown husk lie six or eight segments of creamy white pulp. The little segments are easily separated, and transferred to the mouth melt away, the pulp being as soft and fine and a custard. Th rangosteen's delicate pulp tastes, as all its eulogists say, like etrawberries, peaches, bananas and oranges all at once; a slight tartness is veiled in these delicious flavors, and it is never cloyingly sweet. Taken just as it comes from the ice box the mangoEteeg is an epicure's dream realised, and the more's the pity that it only grows in far away places and deadly olimates, and does not bear transportation. To say that the Russians never temper just...

Traveller. Indian Ghost Charms. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892
Traveller. Indian Ghost Charms. The dread of ghosts is common to all the aboriginal races of India, from whom it hbar been very generally adopted by their Aryan annquerors, and even by the lower elasses of Molhammedaus. All ghosts are believed to be misechievou*, and some of them bitterly malicious, and ath only way to oppose their rancor is to boilh shrines for them, end to make them cfIer ings of a fowl, a pig, or, on grand occasion, of a buffalo. Any severe illness, and mor ePoccially any epidemic disease, eouh a small-pox or cholera, is attributed to thb malignancy of these spirits, who must bt propitisted accerdingly. The man-tiger is, parhape, the most dreaded of all these demon ghosts; for wicn a tiger has Lilled a man, the tiger is etso?oed to lb tale from harm, as the spirit of the man rides upon his head, and keeps him cleor cf danger. Accordingly, it is believed that the only sure mode of destroying a tiger who has killed many people it to begin by making offerings to the...

The Easter Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 22 April 1892
The Easter Holidays. As a holiday Easter was almost spoiled through the drenching rains which pre- vailed throughout the Colony on Monday. But not withstanding this serious drawback the programme of sport, with the exception notably of the Williamstown races and the sports meeting of the Druids gala. which generally constitute an immense attraction to Metropolitan pleasure seekers, came off. The Easter manoeuvres at the naval squad- ron were, carried out to a sucess- full image, and extensive military evolutions performed at the more important camping grounds and fortifications. Great prepara- tions were made for the Bedigo Easter Fair and an extraordinary exhibition of Chinese mangnificence was projected. Crowds of visitors came in by the early Monday morn- ing trains; but the torrents of rain stopped the gigantic procession, and somewhat damped the ardor of the welcome recorded his Exceliency, the Governor, by whom the fair was opened.
