Seymour Water Trust. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 13 May 1892
Seymour Water Trust. A DEtVrATroI from the Seymour Water Trust waited upon the Minmster of Water Supply on Tuesday and presented a complaint tt tth Gover.ow hd ignored the recommendation of the Trs" .s.,, that Mr, A. Walder .od e appopntd as the nomice of the Governinent on that body in place of Mr. C. F. Paget, who had leit the district, Instead of accep ting 2 the Trust's recommeudation, the Government had appointed Mr. D. Ryan. The deputation sui~cested that if it were not too late, Mir. Wallder's name should be substituted for that of Mr. Ryan. Mr. Graham explained that when the position became vacant the department followed the invariable prac. tice of asking the Parliamentary represen tative of the district to sugge.t the name of some reputable resident for the posi tion. That course was followed in the present instance, and Mr. Hunt, the late member for Anglesey, submittel the name of Mr. Ryan, which was accepted. It was too late now to alter the appoint ment as suggested.
"Texas Siftings" of Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 13 May 1892
" Texas Siftings " o Wisdom. Always forgive your enemies-especially those you can't whip. Some men are born great and grow smaller every day of their lives. Adam was proudly conscious that he had never made a mistake in his boy hood. Man finds genuine diamonds in na. ture. The false ones he .makes him. self. The individual who entertains thought wouldn't always like a neighbor to see his guest. When a man discovers his neighbours de. void of virtues never possessed by himself he is shocked. It is rather discouraging to a man to be forced to wait until he is dead to discover that he is a good deal of a fellow. The world owes us all a living, yet no man can collect the debt unless he palls off his coat and takes it from the world's hide.
The Political Bowling Green. (Melbourne Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 13 May 1892
Thie isPolitical BowPtsg Green. :o. (Mv-'lourne Paur.) PEaT is the Speaker of the Fifteenth Parliament of Victoria. A sad and solemn fact. All the speculation cf the week, and all the purpose of every game played on the pioltical green, has been to win the Speakorship for one or other of the as pirants. The Argus has talked in high sounding language that Mr. Duffy would be above making any bargain in resign ing the Attorney-Generalship to get it. What a lot of political prudery there is in such stuff as this:. Why, Duffy never denied that he gave up the Atoer. ne-Generalship to let PErry in on the -express condition that the Government would do all it could to secure the Speaker's chair for him. And why not? Wherre's the harmt The whole trans action was above board. The house knew all about it, and was free to take him or leave hil;. But to put on all this pretence is the very perfection of hypocrisy. lThe .louse only pulled 34 votes. Between Duffy and \Wrixon there was not much to ...

AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MAY I3, 1892. Intense Cultivation. NOT the least of the many beneficial effects which may be looked for from the successful working of the projec ted Villiage Settlement Scheme, is the coivincing demonstration it will afford in favor of an intense form of land cultivation. And to our thinking orn *- * M Immplrtantleeon. our farmers stand in need of learning, than that agriculture is the art of cultivating the land to make it produce the greatest quantity of the best plants useful to man. This is the true aim of enlightened agriculture. But it is not too much to say that till recent times land cultivation has been ex extremely neglected as an art. It was always regarded as being a very neces sary, and a very innocent form of in dustry ; for as BAco. points out " The LoRD GOD first planted a garden," but then everything depended on the state of the weather, the local market and the special favor of Providence, and those were so dr...

Very simple refreshments ruflfce for an afternoon tea and she hostess uses her visiting card for the intvitaions, writing upon the lower left-hand corner, opposite the address: , Tea at five o'clock," and the day and date. Bowls of flowers are very popular things for table decorations at the present time. Some one has invented a silverairs net to cover the bowls and hold up the rose's heads. The wire is connected by ferns and smilax, the flower-atoms being stuck through the net into the water.

The Girl Who Helps Mother. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 13 May 1892
The Girl Who Helps Mother. There is a girl, and I love5to think of her and talk of her, who comes in lato when there is company, who wears a pretty little air of mingled responsibility and anxiety with her youth, whom the others seems to depend on and look to for many comforts. She is the girl who helps mother. In her own home she is a blessed little saint and comforter. She takes unfinished tasks from the tired, still fingers that falter at their work; her strong, young figure is a staff upon which the gray haired, white-faced mother lears and is rested. She helps mother with the 'spring sewing,with the week's mending.with a cheerful conversation and congenial conm panionehip that some girls do not thin? worth while wasting on only mother. And when there comes aday that she must bend, as girls must often bend, over the old, worn out body of mother lying unheeded in her cotlio, rough hands tolded, comething very sweet will be mingled sioh her loes, and the girl who helped hier mothe...
