It is a very simple machine and also a very useful one, for without it the farmers occupation would be a more tedious one than it usually is. These occasional papers of mine will have for their object-it they have any-something of tile same thing in view,--the separ;ation, if possible, of htmbug and wchat the Hlon. J. Ilowlin (what a name!) Graves calls "flap doodle "--the chaff from the corn of colnmon sense, so that tle result will bhe digestible by mortal heads. \Well, we will start, and give the first turn to the handle, and if some of the "chaff" does in the course of our companionship fly into the eyes of our friends and bye. standers, we apologise in advance, and ask them not to stand so near in future. First and foremost the spring has arrived. Like Thomson the poet, we have bee...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. A Wedding in Wonderland. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
THE LADIES' COLUMN. A Wedding in Wonderland. The elves and the fairies did agree To attend a dance neath the old oak tree ; Given in honor of the King Field Mouse Who had wed his cousin of Mushroom House. The blue bells tinkled a merry lay, The scarlet poppies shone bright and gay, The tall ferns nodded their graceful heads, The daisies looked up from their dewy beds, While overhead the stars did chine Above the forests of lofty pine. Then out tripred the fairies all in white Carrying a banner of silver light; The elves they followed in binu array, All merrily singing a roundelay, Then under the oak they grouped together Among various birds of different feather; And dainty mice of sheeny grey, All homage to King Mouse they pay. The blue bells played a dreamy tune, Ase they danced about in the light of the moon, Never before had there been such a scene In that lovely spot of emerald green. The bride was clad in crimson and gold, A necklet of dew.drops quite grand to be hold Adorned h...

of GENERAL EXTRACTS. ---0-- ag ad Thousands of metropolitan juveniles ce, conneoted with the Salvation Army in ia.

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
THE WIDE WORLD. ,o The Home Secretary has introduced in the [house of Commons a "Bill to Regulate the Sale and Use of Pistols." The first clause im-. y plies the recognition of an important fact e which has been too long ignored by the law, that is, that a pistol is just as dangerous a weapon, and in many cases a much more dangerous one, than a firearm of larger dimen d eions. 'Hence it is enacted that "a pistol n may notbe sold except by a person licensed y under this Act to sell pistols." and, further, that every purchaser of a pistol must produce alicense authorising him to usa a gun or to kill game. After defining the conditions - under which licenses to sell pistols may be t' granted to nuusmiths and pawnbrokers, the y Did proceeds to deal with the important ques. tion of the possession of pistols by the young. The fourth clause enacts that "a boy or girl under theage of 18S years shallnot use or carry "a pistol," and contravention of that I enactment is to be punished by a fin...
A Pathetic Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
A'Pathetic Appeal. George Samuel Cooke, a police constable, was hanged at Newgate on 25th July, for what is known as the Wormwood Scrubbs murder. To the last bissweetheart remained faithful to him. In the following letters she vainly pleaded for clemency for her lover : To her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen, -May itpleaseyour lajesty. I have learnt last night the awful news that my sweet heart, Constable George Samuel Cooke, who was to be my husband in October next, has to suffer the extreme penalty of the law on Tuesday morning. Both the coroner's and the Old Bailey jury recommended him strongly to your most gracious Majesty's mercy, and I now in my despair approach the throne. I know your Mlajesty has a heart for the sufferings of your humblest sub. ject. I therefore beg even now, an the last moment, to ask your most gracious Majesty's interference on behalf of the man I plighted my troth to. Think, your Majesty, of the happiness of your beloved grandson, whose marriage with the ...
The Blue Jacket. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
The Blue Jacket. The blue jacket is now really a figstine man afloat just as the soldier is a fighting sman ashore (says a service journal), and there is no valid reason why the forcer should be instructed in shifting a topsail on a yard afloat any more than the latter should perform the same operation on a yard ashore. As an ancient, if somewhat clumsy, art seamanship is interesting, but because it is antiquated, it is not necessarily admirable and which it seems to me little short of factious im becility to spend money in the inculcation of it. The votaries of samanship cannot advrince a scintilla of argumnent in favor of their monstrous proposition, that be cause Nelson and hisi contemporaries achieved their victories by dint of rea sanship,. therefore,.it is essential, if we are to obviate the possibility of Great Brita:n' decadence, to maintain in all its pristine glory the art of seamanship.

Little Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
Little Things. It was only a cup of water given, Or a simple song well sung, But it eased the pain of an aching brain, I OAnd.iktooled a burning tongue. It was only the sweep of a soothing hand, Or a look from a loving eye, But it eased the smart of a loving heart, And it raised the thoughts on high. It was onlya snowdrop, puroand sweet, Or a scented twigof thyme; Yet it told of spring, and the birds that sing, Andthecoming summertime. From the earth they spring, of heaven they speak, With mute, yet eloquent voice, Like the calm serene of the morning's sheen, And theymake the soul rejoice. 'Tis the generous deed and loving word Amid trouble's starless night, That thus.ehape their form in the raging storm, And soflbodthe soulewith light. Though this life isa great a glorious whole, From thelittle seeds it grows, And the merriest rhyme in the harvest time Is to him who early sows. Though only oneintheracemay run Who can gain the victor's prize, Yet the sweet regard and a rich reward A...
Marat's Death Blow. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
MaMat's Death Blow. A century has now passed since one of the most historical of murders was committed. On 13th July, 1793, Charlotte Curday was admittedinto Marat's room. He was in his bath correctingproofe. What passed tillafter the blow is known only through the evidence of the asseasin. Marat asked for the names of certain Girondin Deputies; Charlotte Corday gave them, and he replied, " Autant pour Is guillotine," and was immediately stabbed. It is not certain whether he merely shrieked hoarsely and died, or had time to ery out,"A moi, chere amie, a moi!" Tile former is the more probable, as the "chore amie," Simonne Evrard, did not depose that bhe called out for her. Simonne and a dentist, De la Fondee, both applied pressure to the wound, but Marat was already dead. Dr Cabanes enters into full details of the wound in the "Gazette des liopitaux." Pelletan was immediately called in. He found that the knife had passed under the right clavicle between the first and second ribs, and...

Old Friends. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
Old Friends. No friends are like the dear old friendse The old friends tried and true Who stood by ns in bygone years When friends were only few; Whose cheering words and kindly hands Our burdens helped to bear, Whose hearts in sympathy were stirred Our joys and griefs to share. No friends are like the dear old friends; God's blessings on them rest ! Though later friends may share our hearts, We lore the old friends best ! Theystood by us when skies were clear ; They stood by us in storm ; Timelessens not ourlove for them, And theirs remain as wanrm. No friends are like the dear old friends ; New ones may prove as kind, But truer ones than those of old We know we'll never find. We'll not forget the dear old friends While God shall give us breath: They've stood by us through weal and woe, We'll stand by them till death ! -H. H. Jonasox.

PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 September 1893
PLAYS AND PLAYERS -o The disappearance of the old historic Drury Lane 'Theatre, London, seems by no means a definitely decided matter. Accounts,reading like obituary notices, frequently with the alliterative, although inaccurate, heading " The Doom of Od Drury," have appeared in London nod elsewhere and led the public to suppose the matter was quite a settled affair. l'apere just to hand, however, indi cate that these articles have been just a little too enterprising and that there is every pros pect of the old theatro remaining for many yeareto come. The authority for this is the best of all, no lees than Sir Auuustus Harris, who, in the course of a speech made at the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of a new theatre at Sheffield, asked those present not to believe the story that Drury Lane was coming down, and expressed the belief that the old theatre would see him out, and all those who were present that day, and wculd goon its old way for many a decade to come. This speec...
