Strath Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893

Strath Creek. -:0: [FnRO. OUR OWN CnOanSPO.NDEcT.] AFTER two or three very hot days the weather has taken a pleasant change and the nights are very cool. On Sunday a fire broke- out on Mr. Egan's land, and burnt about too acres of grass. but was got under at night. However, it broke out again on Monday and burnt another too acres of grass. This is positive proof that the grass will burn, although some people aver that it is too green, and leave fires burning all over the country. Mr. Egan, who, it will he remembeled, purchased a part of the Kerrisdale Estate, last winter, is now engaged in having a nice residence erected on a part of the land situated near Hililcar's bridge. The shearing is just about over. The clip has been very good this year, most of the sheep being in good condition. Good progress has been made by the concert and ball committee. Mr. Harris the secretary of the Cricket Club in formts me that a good prooramme will be placed before the public, and expects a bumper ...

Under-feeding and Over Eating in Advanced Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893

-0- Under-feodivg and Over-Eating in Advanced Life. It may seem hard for the man, who in youth has known the pinch of poverty, who remembers how the cut of mutton, with a supply of potatoes and greens. scarcely sutliced for a vigorous appetite, Ehould find that in the prosperity of later life an eight. course dinner of delicacies fails to tempt him, and that nevertheless his physician warns him that the attack of gout from which heis sullering means that he is eating too much, and that his diet must be lowered. Is life then, never to give eatisfaction? Must youth know hunger and old age satiety? fust the poor muscle-worker never have enough food to give energy to his frame, and must the richidler have so much to eat that disease is the consequence P To find the happy mean, to live according to sweet reasonableness and knowledge, is the aim of the teachings of science, and if to these are added the principles of Christian communism, the wealth of later life will not lead to self indu...

The Avoca Gold Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 15 December 1893

The Avoca Gold Robbery. A telegram in a morning contemporary conveys the intelligence that the skeleton of a man, supposed to be that of Wyberg, who gained some notoriety in connection with the Avoca gold robbery, has been found near Waratah Bay, by a selector named Radcliffe, who discovered the remains whilst digging a drain. This discovery recalls the circumstances connected with Wyberg's arrest and subse- quent escape, and it may be interesting to briefly relate them. On the arrival of the R.M.S. China at Galle on the 29th August, 1877, it was discovered that a box containing 5,000 sovereigns had been broken open and the gold abstracted. It was questionable at the time whether the robbery took place on board the Avoca, by which the gold was brought from Sydney, or after transhipment of the boxes to the China at Williamstown. The police in different centres were un- able to trace the sovereigns, but the outcome of their inquiries was the dismissal of the chief oficer of the Avoca ...

THE NANSEN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 December 1893

THE HANSEN EXPEDITION. ------- Speculations as to the whereabouts of the Kansen expoditlon have of late become par ticularly keen among English and Foreign Arctic voyagenrs, and we now learn that a Norwegian gentleman, who has just returned fromNorthern Russia, bringsinformationthat since leaving Jugor Schar (the strait between the Siberian continent and the Walgateoh Island leading into Kara Sea), the Fram was sighted by Samoyedes several times in that sea; the last time outside the River Kare. As, however, the distance between this river and the Jogor Strait is very short, and the time which has elapsed since Nansen's departure and the time of sighting the Pram is very coueiderable, it is conoluded that the vessel must have been delayed in the pack ice. The Samoyedes in question were unable to get near enough to the veseel to read the name or communicate, but their desoriptions ,f her leave no doubt as to her identity. OuMioOs Nzws.

THE WIDE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 December 1893

THE WIDE WORLD, Corruption in American politics is so com mon that a fresh example of it must be very striking to be worth mentioning at this late day. The case of Mr Van Alan, however, presents some very novel features. Mr Van Alan is a millionaire, a relative of the Astoers, and he has never taken any part whatever in political life or discussion. Against his personal character, it must be added, not the slightest charge is made. Being desirous of living in Europe with more rank than attaches to the position of private gentleman, however wealthy, he contributed L10,000 to the Democratic Campaign Fund on the expressed or implied condition that if Mr Cleveland were returned he himself should be made Minister at Italy. This ap pointment has been duly made, and the Senate has recommended its confirmation. Naturally enough Civil Service reformers are up in arms, and in order to prevent this gros travysty of American institutions they have adopted a somewhat singular prece dent by endea...

The Ram in Action. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 22 December 1893

The Ram in Action. Lord Armstrong's recent Epeech at New castle-on.Tyr. has once more revived a dls. eaeaion on the valuo of the ram in action, and hase prodnced someinteresting criticisms from Admiral Sir George Elliott and other officers. We aro very far from denying the valuo of intelligent criticism on any question of naval tactios, but it is necessary to bear in mind that the conditions of naval warfare have been very materially changed by the intro. lnction of steam and powerful artillery. In 'apnt of fact, we have but a very limited tock of practical experience upon which fo ound our theories. Admiral Aube, a comparatively recent work, "La erro Maritime," observes vary ,ustly: ?ne'?amen problem which den oes uponus before all others in our ret Is 'What will a naval war be!' idea.

Trezise (Broad. ford) won the toss from Hilliear, and sent Flowerdale in to bat.' The home team com. menced steadily, and by careful play on the t part of all the batsmen put up a total of 97 runs.
