II;l l'rolla. [t'eo ova OO.V cCOnBRSPOeu?nT.] TuitNus have been very quiet here since the general elections but if floating straws indicate the movement of the stream there is every reason for believing that at the oncoming municioal elections the retiring member for the East riding of the Pyalong Shire will be strenuously opoosed. 1 notice with pleasure that the Buter Factory in Broadford is prooressingtoa wards its long-expected realization; though I cannot help regretting the ex treme apathy our dai,y"nen display in the matter of their crealnery If they intend to make a move theyi ought to' set about it at once in order toet things quite ready for the coming spriny.

The Human Figure. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

The Human Figure. From the crown to the nape of the nrek is one-twelfth the stature of the perfectly formed man. The hand from the wrist to the end of the middle finger is one tenth of the total height of a man of perfect proportions. A man of good proportions is as tall as the I distance between the tips of his fingers when both arms are extended ast fll length. Tte face, from the highest point of the forehead where the hair begins to the end of the chin, is onetenth of the whole staturs of the man of perfect mould. If the face, from the roots of the hair to the chin, be divided into three equal parts the first division determines the place where the eyebrows should meet, the second the open. ing of the nostrils, if perfectly formed. The proportions of the human fiore are I six times the length of the right foot. Whether the form is slender or plump the rule holds good on an average,

Effect of Hair Dye. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

Effect of Hair Dye, I was talking with a friend whose hair and whiskers are almost 0now white at forty. five. *"You may not believe it,"said be, " but I was fool enougli to dye my hair for ten years. I began to get gray at nineteen years of age. I went to the druggist, and he mixed me a hair dye, with sugar of lead and sulphur and other ingrediente, which I be2an to use. I went into the army and held a commission, and wherever I went I was vain enough to carry that hair dye. I would put aside necessary articles from my baggage in order to carry that dye with me. After the war I i bought a plantation, and down there among the negroes and the alligators I was just as particular to use my hair dye daily as it I were g6ing to a ball among fashionabie people. I came to New York and went into business. One morning a friend from out. aide the city met me on Broadway. ' I want to go to Beaver street,' said he. I could not tell him where the street was.

The Father of Postage Stamps. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

The Father of Postage Stamps. --++-- Everybody knows that a postage stamp is a vignette which serves to pay for the for. warding of an article through the mails, and to avoid their being used twice, every stamp has to be either annulled or cancelled. No doubt you have heard the story, for it is an old one, of the traveller who in 1837 was at a shabby English inn when the local postman brought a let.er for the hostess. Sho looked at the envelope a moment, then asked how much was to be gaid for it. "Two shillings," said the man. " Ah i" replied she, " that is altogether too dear I cannot pay eo much I" " Very well," retorted the postman, "I most take it back to the ofille." Moved by the scene the traveller cffired to pay the two shillings, but the young woman would not lht him. HIe asked the reason, whereupon she said that the letter in qued. tion was from her brother, but bring too poor to pay the tax they corresponded by means of signs agreed upon, and which were traced on the envel...

A Moving Hill. A curious event is said to have happened in the year 1571 in Herefordehire, England. On the seventeenth of lebruary, 1S71, which was a Saturday, at six o'clock in the even ing, the earth began to open, and a hill with a rock under it, making at first a loud bel lowing noise, which was heard several miles off, lifted itself up to a great height and be gan to travel, b?aring along with it the trees growing on it, sheepfolds, sheep, and cattle that happened to be grazing on the billat the time. It left a cap in the ground about 50 yards broad and 100 long. The size of the bill was about 20 acree at the base. Passing along, it overthrew a chapel standing in the way, removed a yew tree planted in the churohyard from the west side to the east side, and with the Eame force it thrust before it highways, sheepfolds hedges and trees.

AND REEDY CREEK TIMEs. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, MAY 2o, g892. The Seymonr Water Trast Imbroglio. Tou Seymour Municipal Thenro, leter rose very sensibly during last w, i. over DMr. D. E. Ryan's appointme. to the Seymour Water Trust ; and the indig nation meeting held last Friday evening at Perron's Hall to protest against it seems to have served the useful pur pose of a thunderstorm. Happy would it be if all other foul mental gases could make their escape into the air in an equally harmless manner instead of breeding deadly fevers in the body politic. The circumstances which gave rise to the imbroglio, though comparatively unimportant in themselves are of considerable interest as showing the wide scope ailorded, by the present method of electing highly sesponoible public officers, to the practice of arbitrary tactics by party diplomnatists. According to pubbshed reports a petition signed by 36 rate payers was recently presented .to the Seymour Water Trust, asking that Mr. W.Wa...

CHAPTER V. TIHE TOKEN RECOGNISED. " Ha!" cried Suhrab, fiercely, "thus wouldst thou have it. Thou art at m} mercy now." The hero of Iran saw the uplifted dagger, he heard the cry of dismay that came from the ranks of his countrymen as they witnessed his fall and the Turko. man's shout of triumph; but his great heart had never'known fear. "Mercy I" he ejaculated in a con. temptuols tone; "1 ask none. Strike Ilome ! ho :?-otarm .noir , hoa oCw i.d;.' Lo,,uily and boldly he spoke, expecting instant death; but the dagger fell from the land of the young chief when he aeard those words, and he sprang up in amazeiment.

CHAPTER IV. THE COMBAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

TIHE COt.IDAT. And now the first signs of coming day were visible in the eastern sky, and the steed of Rustam pawed the ground in front of his tent. The ancient hero arose, and, buckling cn his swotrd, strode forth. 1le leapt lightly into the saddle, his brave steed Dragon hounded forward with a shrill neigh, and bore his master to the place of combat with the speed of the whirlwind. But when Rustamn came to the spot, the centre of the space between the two armies, he saw that his opponent had not yet arrived ; so dismounting, he impatiently awaited his co:ing, leaning against his charger. And while his stern father thus awaited him, young Suhrab quaffed the wine-cup with l3aruman, but the wine failed to cheer his heart. Filled with gloomy apprehensions, he addressed the Turkoman leader in an impressive tone: "I will tell thee, frankly, my tried friend, though I should never breathe it to another, that 1 feel an unaccountable reluctance to meet this stranger to-day.

Cured of Flirting. For Once in the World's History a Flirt Meets His Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

Cured of Flirting. For Once in the World's History a Flirt . Meets His Match. "No more flirting for me, boys," remarked a young man to some of his acquaintances, one of whom was a reporter. "I used to go without smoking when I was dying for a cigar, jest so I could go in the ladies' car. But I'm cured. On my last run into town I met a nice young lady. She was agreeable, and of course I made myself as nearly so as poseible. Had a pleasant half hour with her before we reached the station, and of course when we got off there I asked her if there were any parcels I could carry for her. She smiled bewitchingly; and said I might help her if I would be so kind. Then she pointed to the seat right behind where we were sitting, and there were three babies, assorted sizes, asleep. She said they were here. Well, I was in for it, so I picked no the biggest oneS, one on either arm, while she took the kid. We marched out and found a carriage, and I put her in and was about to say good-day when she...

One man trusted him. -elf to work at a height of 120 feet over the waters of the Firth, simply grasping a rope. -.is hands got numbed with cold, his grasp relaxed, he fell backward down, down into the water, and be Las fished up alive. In i another instance a spanner fell a distance of 300 feet, knocked efI a man's cap and fell on the wooden stage at his feet, and went clean through a four-inch plank.
