HOW SHE GOT EVEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

HOW SHE GOT EVEN. Our birthday we stood at the gate, And hushed was our lively talk, As with red hair a pretty maid Came tripping along the walk. For jest behindher on teroad ` There trotted a pure white horse, And as we thought of the joke We srexiled, as a matter of course. She saw as smile, then glanced behind, And her cheeks with anger burned, She gave her head a scornful toes, As around to us she turned. A haughty look she gave, then said " I always make it a rule, Whenever a white horse I see To look around for a fool." Are not doctor's fees ill-gotten gains? The mumps are as swell a disease as any. They have found a mountain of solid iron ore in Burmah. They must organise a company to develop the iron o'er there. A Hayes Valley shoemaker calls himself on his card, "temperance bootmaker." Who has not known boots that were awfully tight ? A prominent lawyer, whose "nominal" fees are usually phenomenal, was seen yesterday with his hands in his own pockets. Bobby was admiring the...

FUNNIOSITIES. THE TRAVELLER'S BYWORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

THE TRAVELLER'S BYWORD. A traveller once, aith thoughtful mind, Tried to invent another kind f01 phrase, a substitute to be FJr this: " Tere are no fies on me." At last he found the words he Pnuoht And straightway sent this happy tbought Throughout the country for and near: "There are no insects basking here." When haughty landlords sought to give Him fare on which he scarce could live, He'd wink and esy with knowing leer: "There are no Insects hbasking here." When other travellers tried to get The trade on which his life was set, He'd murmur eoft: "I have no lear, There are no insects basking here." But when upon the tavern bed He sought to rest his weary bend; He held his tongue and ehed a tear The words lost all the mean- hero.

Lead Poisoning Cumulative. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

Lead Poisoning Cumulative. Writing of the poisoning of water by lead pipes Alfred II. Allen. president of the Enclish Society of 'Public Analysis, says " The proportion of lead which is generally considered to render water seriously ohjeo tionable is one-twentieth of a grain per gallon. It must not he supposed, however, that there is any danger in drinking a glass of water containing such a minute proportion of lead. It is not the single dose or a dozen doses which will produces any ill efiects, tot the constant use ol such contamirated water. Lead is a cumulative poison, and each successive dose becomes stored up in certain organs of the body until the poisonous t fTects ensue. Further, it must not be supposed that every one is equally susceptible to the effects of lead, there being a ereat difference in this respeat. Hot water nats much more vigorously on lead pipe than sold." The elevator boy does his shabare toward I "the selevation of the masses."

A PECULIAR PEOPLE. They Establish their Right to Live and Die without Medical Advice. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

A PECULIAR PEOPLE. They Establish their Right to Live and Die without Medical Advice. England has a curious sect known as the Peculiar People, and their peculiarity con Eists in regarding the employment of physicians as a sin. In case of nickness they depend upon tihe prayer of faith, anointing with oil and probably hygienid measures so far as they understand them. When the death of a child occurs among these people it has been customary for the Government to step in and prosecute the parents on the charge of neglect. The " Pall Mall Gazette" saysg of these prosecutione:- SWhEn juries were first called upon to sit in judgment upon the victims of the prayer and anointing oil mcele of treatment they promptly returned verdicts of manslaughter, and the Peculiar People were cast into prison as martyrs for their faith. With them, an with most persons of that temper, imprison Inent only stilleed their resolution. The atruggle has gone on for years, but recently the P. culiar People triumph...

Some Little Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

Some Little Things. For hiccough, hold the breath. A man must ask leave of his stomach to be happy. Salt fish of any kind is qlickest and beet freehed by soaking in sour milk. Fish may be scaled much easier by dipping into boiling water about a minute. In watering plants, put a teaspoonful of ammonia into the water once a week. Ripe tomatoes will remove ink stains from white cloth and also from the hands. A teaspoonful of turpentine boiled with white clothes will aid the whitening process. Boiled starch is much improved by the addition of a little salt or dissolved gum arabic. Windows should be opened at both top and bottomin order to procure proper ven tilation. To attempt hard work or close study within an hour after eating invites derange ments of the digestive organs. Because the air is invisible it is no reason why pure air is not as essential to good health as is wholesome food and drink. Bo-called unhealthful occupations can be made less so by properly understanding and pract...

MORELAND GROVE. A GOOD OFFER. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

MORELAND GROVE. A GOOD OF'EI:. Mr. lil. C. Dare waxed warm. in a letter which he wrote to the Cubhrg Council on Monday, regarding the con dition of the footpaths in the Moreland Grove. Houses had already been erected in the street valued at £50,000, and in seven years the enormous anmount of £5 7s Gd had been spent on the street, whilst lie had laid asphalt there at his ownc cost. Councillors were never seensdown that way, and perhaps it was as well that they, did iot come, for they would as suredly return so covered in mud that they would be compelled to remove their boots before entering any house. Coun cillor Voice stated that the writer hasd been one of the strongest supporters off the riding system and rnow was reaping the benefit of it. The truth was that the east ridliig was overdrawn last, year to the extint oft £100 and had not the mnoney to carry out any more improvc ments. He had ascertained that during the past .12 inanths no less than £109 is had been spent there. They ...

The Futile Struggle. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890

The Futile Struggle. There is no stroggle in the world greater than that of a fat man trying to get thin, or a thin man trying to gait flesh. The fat man exercises, and takes Russian baths to pull himself down; and when he stops for a week he is stouter than ever. The thin man furnishes himselif with farinaceous food, and doesn't gain an ounce. He also abandons the luxury of tobacco, witbhoon the desired result. He takes Turkish baths, that the reaction may build him up; but be has to give thea practice up for lack of physique. Toe fat man diets for a month and loses a pound; but by this time he feels so weak that he can not help indulging in two or three days' htgh living. At the end of the thigd day he is about two pounds heavier than when he began fasting. In the morning he takes a pair of six pound bells and whirls them about for fifteen seconds, and believes he has been using them for five minutes. 'Then he works on a row. ing machine for awhile, which gives him an appetite for...

With the advance of a district the need of a purely local .journal, to act as tihe guardian of-liberty and right becomes more than ever apparent, and it is with the hope that such a want may be fully supplied that we have launched forth our enterprise and entered into the newspaper field of competition.
