Odds and Ends. Bettering the Originals.- M?r. F. 0. Buraand, the editor of London .Pune,, has been accused of plagiarism because that in. iiimitable song, "lHis 'Art Wans True to Poll," is founded oit nu older song. It is based on a song entitled "True He.arted Ben," author unknown, the first verse being as follows: "Ben Ilobstay, a tar of the jollyold sort; Could keelhaul a mainbrace and luff .hard aport; And Len, he was smiled on by Sue, Meg and - AMoll; But all o'er the world he was faithful to Pool -Faithful to Poll. ".

A MUFF CRICKET MATCH. THE TWO COUNCILS PLAYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 February 1891

A MUFF CRICKET MATCH. THE TWO COUNCILS PLAYING. I There was fun for the boys and amusement for all at the Brunswick recreation reserve on Wednesday after noon, when the long-talked-of cricket match between the Brunswick and Coburg councils took place. At three o'clock the attendance did not muster several thousands. but consisted of a very respectable crowd, who, throughout the whole proceedings, evinced great interest in the contest, and gave vent to their feelings pretty freely. By some oversight the Brunswick band was not engaged to play, nor were there any special addresses of welcome prepared for presentation to the visitors, but, nevertheless, they were received with great cordiality, and the whole surround ings of the game were characterised by the greatest harmony. The Mayor (Cr.Fleming) extended a hearty welcome to the shire players, and dispensed right loyal hospitality to all concerned at the shabby old ramshackle which does duty as a pavil:onon the ground. With the arriv...

Good Stories. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 February 1891

Good Stories. -.4-- The life of Sheridan, senior, was not a moral one. He drank to excess, and he ran in debt to support his extravagant style of living. But he disliked sceptical notions, and held to orthodox ideas in philosophy and religion. Tom one day tried to engage his father in a discussion on the doctrine of necessity. "rFather," said he, "did you ever do anything in a state of perfect indiffer ence-without motive, I mean, of some kind or other?" Sheridan, who knew what was coming, and didn't relish such discussions, answered: "Yes, certainly." "What ? Total indifference-entire, thorough indifference ?" "Yes; total, entire, thorough indifference." "Then tell me," persisted Tom ; "what it is you can do with total indifference?"" Why, listen to you, Tom," replied the father. When Tom was a young man he one day announced his approaching marriage. His father, thinking it an imprudentact, threat enled "to cut him off with a shilling." "You haven't got it about you, have you, sir?...

" Wait for me here," she said to the driver. ' I shall not remain long." He settled himself in the carriage, with a few inaudible murmurs of complaint, and through the great stone entrance and up the slippery walk Lord St. Aubyn's bride made her noiseless way. She reached the broad stone steps that led np to the heavy oaken door, and there she paused and looked keenly about her. Very white was her face, but in her eyes glittered a look of dauntless determination. What she same to do she would accomplish, no matter what the risk might be. She stood for a moment irresolute as to what coarse to pursue-whether to approach the front entrance and boldly demand ad mittance, or to wait until F...

Heligoland. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 February 1891

Heligoland. The most important of recent diplomatic events in Europe is the cession of Heligoland and the' nglo-German agreement settling the bbundaries of the claims iof the} two countries in Africa. Whatever 'rights Engi land had arose from prior occupancy` of the territory, but in so extensive arcoOntryioc cupancy could be of a part, dnli' a cd Ger many, when it began to develop its colonial policy found lirge tracts of land unocZclpied,' and began to establish colonies,'particularly on the east coast. As the colonies of the two countries expinded from the coast to ward the interior, and along the coast, dis putes as to the boundary became inevitable, andsomeagreement as to therelativespheres Sof activity btcame a necessity. England found that upon the east coast her colonial possessions had become limited to a strip of about two hundred and fifty miles, situated just below the equator, while Germany had obtained, much more extensive possessions both above and below this territor...

Pretty and Plain. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 February 1891

Pretty andul Plain. Pretty women sbhuld'bie kind to plain ones, because of what they miss in the gift and power of beauty ; t'e plain should be kind to the beautiful forthe certain bitter in their..experience. We' have known' women to whiom their uncommon beauty was en an noyance, almost' a curse, on account of the -notice of a dubious kind that it attracted. To the women who have their own way to make in the world, gocd looks, beyond a de. cent, unootrusive comeliness, are as much weiglit to' carry as advantage. In the first place, no matter how modest, how worthy in themselves, they run dead against some woman's jealousy, and it will go hard, for she'can embitter life for them. In the next, they are exposed to slttnlions and notice firom the coarser sort of men, from which even the boldest among them shrink, and -which is torture to the modest and retined. Constant labor is wearying and spirit crushin,. to be sure; yet better that than -:idleness-begotten vice. If proof were neede...

DETECTING MINUTE QUANTITIES OF IRON IN MINERALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

DETECTING MIN UTE QUANTITIES OF IlRON IN MINERALS. Alexander Johnstone, F.G.S., Assistant to the Professor of Geology and Mineralogy in the University of Edinburgh, states, through the columns of the Chemical NewS that a new and rapid method for detecting minute quantities of iron in minerals is easily accomplished as follows:-By means of a good strong Ilame, produced in the ordinary way by the mouth blowpipe, heat for a minute or two a small portion of the mineral, preferably in a powdered condition, on clean platinum foil, with about four times its bulk of potassium nitrate or chlorate. The platinum should be heated from below, as it is not desirable that the flame should touch t'e assay. After the mass has been ignited as stated add to it, before it has cooled down, by means of a piece of glass tubing, pure concentrated nitric acid drop by drop, until a single drop remains not dried up. Next pour on to the top of the unevaporated nitric acid, also by means of a narrow glass tube,...
