The heartis of old courthouse supporters in the North Wiard grew sad and heavy at thie outlook, for, -alns, it seemed that inal3y would be uinable to venture out of lia. mnuddy muurlk of nairde streets save with the aid of a large pair of stillts.

The Hygiene of a Smile. When, in the midst of life's hurry and o ý- a moet s' n nR [se. E. ýeam .pesfe e'O Oana-obd d -we.sesoetimie ta nsn when seeing how much woe and suffering there is in the world, that it we would each of us smile more, life would be so much easier to live for all ol us; for a sunny face sweetens both outside and in; both the owner and the bebolder. The trouble with us is, that when we take the pains to smile, we feel, a general thing, t hat we are doing it solely for Eomebody elre's benefit, while, if we did but know it, it is " life and health and peace" to ourselves in many ways. For one thing: it is morally impossible to snarl at the same moment we smile; for, in spite of us, our voices will soften to keep the smile company; neither can we fret; and so both snarling and fretting have to go-and good riddance I Worrying. too. is, perforce. banished; for an entirely different set of muscles is brought into play, th se which make a smile utterly refuving to be ...
COBURG. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
COB3URG. At Coburg, things hummed loudly. As is slready known, the only riding ii which tIhere was a contest was the west, but owing to the fact that both of the candidates were so well klnown and justly boasted many friends, thIe fight was a keen one. Tlhere were no burn ing questions at issue, and the opinions of both gentlemen seemed to be on a par. During the day the whole riding was actively canvassed. Voters were sent for and conveyed to the booth at the public ball in cabs, and both sides were confident of victory. The Ipoll closed at four o'clock, and the returns were quickly made up and announced as follows: Fischer, T..... .. 32S Grundy, R.

Fertilisers for the Rose. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
Fertilisers for the Rose. In answer to a crrer-Yor d nt whoinqoiree for thesr-t fertilicere for the rore, we ewould say that generally cow mnannre is the heat. If the sail is elayey and cold herre manure is better. In proparing the roill, if it to not too iheavy. nuse cow manure generously, working itcwell in, but the manuring need not be very deep. Neither Poil 'rc manure need be vary finely pOlceriteC for roseC. If the eoil is right and well fertilised rorev ere not dilieu!tt to grow. They we:1 not crox in a wet coil. If the roil is wet it must be drained. Nor will they grow in a very light dry soil. When the soil is too hravy add sand or ashes, and clay and turf when it ic too light. The rose moust have the proper conditions of strong growth, or we shall have a world of trouble with it, and besides having lice to Bfight, the roers that do oppear will be of a very inferior sort. Thorough cultivation favors chemical action in the soil in addition to its other ouses. Drain all land ...
Proper Care of the Teeth. They Should be Brushed Thoroughly After Meals. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
Proper C are'of the Teeth. They Should be Brohabed Thoroughly Alter IMeale. Dentists are daily oommitting the error of not instructing their patients in regard to the proper methods of: oleaneing their mouths brushing, pickiog, rioning with warm aidter after meals and atnight before going to bed. Our observations must show that people who do three things faithfully have little or no dentistry to do. It is astonieshing what ignorance exists among people of all clasoes and conditions as .,to what ,leanlinee -of the mouth means. They will teflyon frankly that they do not brush their mouths as well as they ought to, for they did not know they were going to be examined, and when you looked you really thought so, and the second thought was probably not for a muoth. Cleanly habits are part of an inlividual's education and can be formed only in child. hood. Too much care cannot be bestowed on the rubjeot for the little onee. Each in. dividual must see it thorougbly done-have it done for him...
The Kitchen and Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
The Kitchen and Garden: The kitchen and garden are very inti mately connected, but the term kitbchen garden conveys the idea of the usual con. nection between thetwo. There is another connection, however, which we regret to say is not generally considered and as the neglect is one of the little wastes, about which we so often complain, we decire to all attention to it. If we were to any that hundreds and thoneands of pounds worth of good garden fertilisingmaterial was wasted every year in this country, it might surprise many, but sevortheless it is true. The soapsoda and disbhater are excellent fertilisers, and in stead of being thrown where they will do no goad, ought to be applied to the Barden. Grape vine es epecially like this kind of food. If one hi never tried the virtue of soapsude and 'disnwatrr upon garden plants, the resalt of applying them would be astonishing. In this country we neglect ouch trifles because of the natural richness of our soil. But we would imprees Ihe fa...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
Man upraised above his fellows Oft forgets his fellows then; Masters, rulers, lortds, remember That your meanest kind are men I Men of labor, men of feeling, Men of thought and men of fame, Claiming equal rights to sunshine In a man's ennobling name. My heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky; So was it when my life began, So is it now I am a man, So be it when I shall grow old. -Wordsworth.

A douse of quinine when the sun comesup From its.tossed-up bed is the easternii sea; Some castor-oil when the moon has slped; A blue till dark and catnip ten; A decoction made froni the leafless larch, And this is March. A msan who looks on glass, On it may fix his eye; Or else, may through it pass, And so the heavens espy. -Herbert.
Orchards in Grass Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
Orchards in Grass Lands. We are asked it it is advisable to seed down orchards and keep them in grass. We FupposeO that references is made to the annle orchard. Peab orchards, and we be lieve pear orchards, should be cultivated as lone as they stand. The apple orchard should certainly be cultivated for three or four years. and then it is better to sow it to clover. The crassesproper make too stiffa eward. Still many orchards are sown to grasses and many re ruined by permitting them to remain in -rain. There are orch ards that would be ereatly beneflted by at least dieting arour the trees when they have stood in grass .or a long time. Olover does not mske as Lcrong a sod and it makes eaxellent pasture for the hogs, which if rang and kept out of the orchard when the ground is wet and soft, will do an orchard goodby running in it.
Heroic Treatment of Insects. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
lHecroic Treatment of Tnsects. Editing apaper is often hurried work. and the expression of the writer- is looser, and perhaps the penmanship is behsd, which may lead to serious mistakes in 2omposition and proof-readiog. TVe have eomrtimer Fron kerosene recommended as an insecticide, hot when we have seen the recommendation we have sopposed that the careless editor meont that it should be used as an emulsion. Bat the reader may not know. that. One cer tainly did not. He read that kerosene would kill the oyster-hback loose, andl he doused It on. It did kill it. The loise found the trees upon which the nppliestion was made was a very unhealthful place to stay. tint the bhark of the trees was hadly injoured. Kerosene should be need in unah cases only in emulsion. It is the kerosene emulsion kerosene with soap and -water-that is meant when the careless editor recommends kerosene

More About Voices. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890
ilore Aboiut Voices. Being able to* sing sweetly rid with ex pression is secondary only to being able to talk well; and how few persons, Excpt the frudta'emnnpetaideavukaa 2alsddinin faculty. By this I do not mean the ability to talk well on many subjects, or in any grade of society-we all know, without any argument how desirable that is; what I wish now to speak of is the voice itself. One often hears quoted those words of Shakespeare, "A low, sweet voice, an ex cellent thing in woman;" but alas I they are more often quoted than practised. A gentle voice is one of the most striking marks of good breeding. Of course, one person may have the advantage over an other by having a sweeter or clearer voice naturally; but even if you have not a good voice naturally, you can greatly improve it by practice. First of all, as in singing, so in talking, do not talk too loud. II you observe, you will find that people are much more apt to listen to a man who has thorough control over hie voioe th...
