[COPYRIGHT.] Fernbrook's Double. A Romance of Maoriland. CHAPTER XXI.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

FrFnibrook's Double. Romance of Maoriland. By ATIIA WVEST?CtRY. CHOAPTER XXI.-CoSTIvUED. If they have really joined the Robel Chieftain-and he has reliable evidence that such is the case-then they are thus caged, and the only consideration for him to decide is, how Ihe is going to capture his men without being captured turn I The position is a strong one. There is no doubt on that head; on one side looms the coast line, steep aid slippery, and where there is not foothold for a m1iun tain goat. T) the left, and far out, a deep swamp, overgrown with tall coarse rushes. and where a body of men could not force a passage without being entirely lost. There is only one way to the place, and that is by way of the Hlapu, and here it is but a narrow ledge of rock little more than a dozen feet wide. Once over this, however, ttere is plenty of room right .under the breastworks, whera a body of resolute men may re-form and make their attempt. If this man from Scotland Yard could, by any possible...

A Desperate Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

A IDesperate Maln. Bagley had called on fifteen landlords, all of whom objected to leasing him their houses because he had children. At last he became desperate and resolved to have a house as any cost. - Well," he said to landlord number six teen, "I guess I'll take this place. - Pardon me, sir," said the landlord," but have you any children 1" "Yes," sighed Bagley, "but I'll kill them." The "wild Irish" girls have, it is stated, the most beautiful hands. English girls have coo fleshy and plump hands. The hands of the American girls are long and narrow: The fingers of the German girls are too short and palms too broad. Next to the Irish girls the daughters of Poland deserve the palm so far as the beauty of the hand is concerned. The hands of the French. Italian, and Spanish girls may be called indifferent, though there are more beautiful I hands to be usen in France and Italy than I in Spain. The Parisiennes bestow a great deal of pains on their hands, and the eon. stquenceisthatsu...

Ldely, in Canton city, a man hired a chair to crry the bride to his home. stead in the stburbe. The distance was great and the hoe was late. When the four chair coolies andthe lantern-bearers arrived at their destinatira, the chair containing the bride was deposied outside the doorway to await the anspicpos hour selected for open ing the door toladmit the bride, and the crowd adjournedto an opium den to pass an hour. The obair:bearers fell asleep, and how long they dozel they know nus, but on awakening they returned and found the bridal chair still ountide the doorway.

When Marriage is a Failure. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

When Marriage is a Failure. Marriage is a failure without the shadow of a doubt, when either party marries for money. When the lord of creation pays more for oigars than his better half does for hoisery, boots and bonnets. When one of the parties engages in a busi- ness not approved by the other. When both parties persist in arguing over a subject upon which they never have and never can think alike. When neither husband nor wife ever takes any vacation. When the vacations are taken by one side of the house only. When a man attempts to tell his wife what style of bonnet she must wear. When a man's Christmas presents to his wile consist of bootjacks, shirts, gloves and neckties for himself. When the watchword is "Each for him- and her-self. When dinner is not ready at dinner time. When he snores the loudest and she lights the fire. When ' father" takes half the pie and leaves the other half for the one that made it and eight children. When the children are given the neck and back of ...

I may say I am but a regular at tendant at the church in question, and not a member, so that it may be urged my protest lhas very little weight. And if the matter were but one of a goss misrepresentation of Divine Truth, perhaps a love of justice and a reverence for truth, would not lead me to attempt to vindicate the character of God ; for I a,:prehend the character of God can take care of itself.

General Gathellrings. Alexander Scott, a colored man living at Broad Bioiple, Indians, split a two-inch board over his wit's head. Soe ecsaped, and made her way to the homie of her brother-in law, where she secured an old musket, with which she returned home and fatally shot her husband. The authorities refuse to prosecute her, claiming the shooting was in eelf-defeoce. The ohoree is first specifically mentioned in theBiblein Genessxlvii. 17. In Job xxxix. 18 there is another reference. All through the Bible, from thas hoapter and verse of Genesis just referred to, will be found refer ence to te horse. The use of horses by the febrews was'discoraged,andit is suggested that the reason for this may be found in Isaiah xxvi. 13.

CHAPTER XXII. BEARDING THE LION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

CHAPTER XXII. BEiARDIING TIlE I.IOt. No sight so glorious and sad as the battle ground whei the conflict is over. The interior of the conquered pah pre sented a ghastly picture-dead and dying heaped together, amongst the debris of broken weapons. Pursuit of the retreating enemy was not thought of under the circumstances. Indeed, Colonel Chcesterton could find no clue to the phenomena of the rock, which before him had suddenly opened its pon derous jaws and swallowed up the Rebels to a mati. Days afterwards the secret was found, but it was too late then to give chase. For years "the moving rock of Piki na "had been known to thls Maories. A vast mass of solid stone, which formed part of the higher wall on the coa:st, had becone by some freak of nature bedded in a pivot below. A child knowing the secret, could have swung the stupendous boulder round with a touch of the hand. Without the secret no kno'm n power of leverage could have moved it.

Reedy Creek. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 20 May 1892

Reedy Creek. ---a.-- FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT' Quite a gloom was cast over Reedy Creek on Tuesday, when it became known that Miss Johannah Engish had breathed her last at the Kilmore Hospital. The deceased lady who was very much respected, and the daughter of Mr James English, had been a victim to Typhoid fever, which she con- tracted at Seymour. The funeral took place at the Broadford cemetery on Wednesday. Much sympathy is felt for her bereaved father and relations. Messrs. Baren and Liddell crushed four tons of stone from the Tonstall reef on Mon- day last, at Shaw's battery, with the hand- some result of 14½ ounces to the ton. This looks very promising for Reedy Creek. Mr Chas. Johnson is busily engaged putting through a trial crushing from the same vi- cinity. I trust he will be favores with a   like result.

The Strath Creek Bridge is now com. pleted and judging from its appearance. I should imagine it is one of the best structures of its kind in the Ilroadfornd Shire, and does great credit to the enter prisine cont.actors Messrs. W. Bidstrup and Sons. The local footballers were hard at work on Saturday and some of them shewed that all they require is plenty of practice to win Strath Creek hanor on the field of glory.
