A High-Priced Doctor. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
A High-Priced Doctor. e A certain physician in BIendigo had acquired anunenviablereputation for making his bills as large as possible. "'Why," said one man to another, rpeaking of the doctor, "hebroughtmy daughter up from her attack of pneumonia when two other physicians said that there was no hope for her.; but when she was quite well again, he charged me for three ealls he made to inquire in a friendly way how she was getting on." "Thba seems a little forced," admitted the other man; " but it's nothing to an experience I had with him at the sea shore. We happenedto be in bathing at the same time one day, and I swam up to him and inquired for his wife. "She is very well," said the doctor. "And your daughters ?' I asked. 'They're perfectly well, both of them,' replied he. rather shortly, I thought. So I said: 'I'm de. lighted to hear It; remember me to them,' and swam away.

Odds and Ends. A Ceylon Fishing Boat. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Odds and Ends. A Ceylon Fishing Boat. Yonag friends, look on your map of Asia and, in the Indian Ocean, you will find the Island of Ceylon. It is about the queer fish ing boats used there that I am now going it tell ynu. The Parawas, or the fiehermen of Ceylon, from a distinct claes by themselves. They are a sturdy, industrious race, and lead a dangerous and exciting existence, battling with the eurf, which breaks heavily over the reefs by which the island of Ceylon is almost entirely surrounded. The boats in which these fisherman'pace a great part of their lives are of very peculiar construction. They are hewn from a single log, generally about thirty feet long, and not over eighteen inches beam. They are kept from capsizing by an outrigger, which is a log of wood as long as the boat lying parallel to it about twenty feet away. The outrigger is held in place by a couple of bamboo poles, which are curved above the water so as to ofier no resistance bydregging. In the event oft heavy...

Sunshine. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Sunshine. Equally important with puore air in living apartments is sunshine. It carries with it radiance and cheer and vigor and good health. It is a purifier, warding off monld, moisture, gloom, depression, and disease. It should be admitted into every apartment of the house and made welcome at all times. It is a strong preventive to the disorders that visit shaded and musty places. It brings health and happiness that cannot be obtained from any other source. It is nature's own health giving agent, and nothing can be substituted for it. It has no artificial counterpart. It does not touch the physical body, but it reaches the mind and soul and purifies the whole existence of man. It may fade a carpet or upholstery, but will bring color to the cheek, light to the eye, and elasticity to the step. The closed and shaded window may throw a richness of color upon the room, but it will bring pale ness and feebleness to the occupants. This health agent is free to all, easily obtained, and o...

The Tallarookites were captained by T. Doxey whilst the locals were under the skilful charge of John Howden. The game com menced with vigor and broadford quickly asserted its prowess by scoring several byes to the clean sheet of their opponents but the play was rather hampered and no goals were made durine the first quarter Interest deepened during the second quarter which was fiercely fought and in which the veterans of the home team showed to ad vantage though allowing Tallarook to make t goal without adding an equivalent, During the 3rd and 4th quarters byes were frequent and atthe close Tallarook stood4 coals and 8 byes to Bronadford 4 byes.

The Old Fashioned Girl. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
The Old-Fashioned Girl. She was a little girl until she was fifteen years old, and then she helped her mother in her household duties. She had her hours of play, and enjoyed herself to the follest eu tent. She never said to her mther, " I an t -I don't want to," for obedience was to her a cherished virtue. She arose in the morn ing when called, and we do not suppose she had her hair done up in curling papers and crimping pins or banged over her forehead. She did not grow into a young lady and talk about her bean before she was in her teens, and she did not read dime novels, nor was she fancying a hero in every boy she met. The old-fashioned girl was modest in her demeanor, and she never talked slang nor need by.worde. She did not laugh at old people nor'make fun of cripples. She had respect for her elders, and was not above listening to words of counsel from those older than herself. She did not know as much as her mother, nor did she think that her judgment was as good as that of h...

Household., Weave aned Wait. EOL a 0. DENOUOo, The rosy light of a coming morn Is driving the gloom away; The first faint rays of the golden son Heralds the dawning day. 'he shimmering ennehine peeps within, And brightens the long, dark hall; While flickering shadows dance on the floor, And over the polished wall. I sit alone by the glowing grate And dream of a year ago, WVhen I felt the pressure of dimpled arms Now lying beneath the snow. I dream of a time when the golden head Was pillowed upon my breast, When the tired lids covered the sweet blue eyes, And baby had gone to rest. Fad gone to sleep in that awful calm That heralds the icy breath Of the reaper, who garners the yong and fair; The reaper whose name is " Death." They laid her away in a little grave, And covered it over with flowers. A grave is still in my heart to-day, And sad are the lonely hours. But I gathered together the broken threads That were weaving the web of years, And I pierced them out with an aching heart, ...

TuE'recent" passage by the Canadian House of Commons of a resolution in favor of preferential duties on a recip *ocal basis with Great Britian; has been. mado-th'e subject of warm con gratulations on the part of the. Eng lish Conservative press; and this over. ture will be regarded as a matter of moment and concern to every patriotic Britisher, as well as to every student of political economy. Though the re solution remains but a regist-red pro. posal from the Canadian side, it will undoubtedly meet with an unusually warm response in England, even if no action be immediately taken. But the measure, if adop'ed by the Imperial Legislature, would necessitate the abandonment by Great Britain of the principle of Free Trade, which would be of vastly greater importance to the world than the question at issue.

Unfinished Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Ulfiuf sit?i Work. THE subject of the Sunday Creek pollution is still the source of an unpleasant agita tion ; and there seems very little prospect of its immediate settlement. The question was broached again at the last meeting of the Council when it, transpired that formal complaints had been made to the board of Public Health by those affected, and that this authority had directed the Broa'ltord Shire Council to report to them on the action taken to remove the evil. This re quest had been complied with, and in answer to the question as to what the shire were required todo, a concluding letter charged the local body to take such action as they deemed necessary under Sections 226 and 241 of the Health Act. These seeions to prevent any soft of contamination under a legal penalty. The matter had, however, been left in a somewhat indefinite manner by the Council which, at a previous meeting, acceded to the request of Mr. McDOUGALL to give him time to calry out a scheme to remedy the p...
