Letting Babies Walk too Early. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

Letting Babies Walk too Early. The senseless conduct of many parents in encouraging their babies to walk is pro ductive of lasting injury. Long before their soft bones ought to have any strain put upon them, you will see these poor infants en coura?ged to stand and even to walk, and by the time they are fourteen orsixteen months old their little legs have been bent very con siderably, and the greatest care is needed to straighten the bones again. Sometimes un satisfactory operations are required ; at other times cumbrous appliances have to be used, which cause the poor child much trouble, and represent a very considerable outlay. Why not have a little patience 7 All in good time the tiny creature will learn to walk, and will walk well and safely, without danger of its tenderbones bending. Under a year, let the child crawl, but do not let it walk, seldom indeed stand, and then only but for a minute, and from one year to eighteen or twenty months do not allow it to walk much ; and whe...

SACRED MUSICAL RECITAL [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

SACRED MUSICAL RECITAL The Brunswick Primitive Methodist Church was the scene of a very enjoyable musical . evening on Wednesday last, when a sacred musical recital was given by the choir. Invites were freely distributed, with the result that the attendance was very large, and the seating accommodation of the church was taxed to'its utmost capacity. Tthe Rev. T. Copeland presided, and, after a short address, which served well to introduce proceedings to the audience, called on the choir for a chorus. " Cry Out and Shout," which was ably rendered. Mr. L. Copeland sang "Ora Pro Nobis," in a manner apparently acceptable to all, and, after two choruses. a recitation entitled " Resignation," was given by Mr. A. Copeland. "How Beautiful upon the Mountainse" followed by the choir, and Miss Brewer was very successful in a contralto solo, " The Christian Martyr." A solo and chorus "Praise ye the Lord," . with Mr. N. 1Stranks as soloist, gained considerable applause, and afterwards the practi...

A Gipsy on Dreams. Read This. Then Go Home and Eat Too Much Cheese of pound Cake. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

A LipS) otl I r)-is. Rflad Tliv IlThen Go' Home nd Eat Too S.::.:ilch Cheese or Poundi Cake. :' - According to the Gipsy, to dream that oei batlle in c:ear water is a sign that you ,will enjoy good hlialth ; if muddy, the death of relntives or friends. To see a bath, anger; to take a.warm tbath denotes happiness ; if you takd one eithecr too hot or too cold, domestic troubles. If you undress without going into the water you may expect trouble, but it willsoon pass away; a sea bath is a sign of honor and increase of fortune. If anyone dreams that lie or she is ascend ing to heaven, or is already enjoying its de lights, it shows that some, joyful event is to happen, such as the birth of an heir to childless people, good fortune to those who are poor, distinction to the wealthyand high honors to the ambitious. If lovers hare such a dream-it foretells an early marriage under the most auspicious circumstances, and that their wedding will be attended with troops of congratulating friends;...

Not Up in Geography. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

-':a Not Up in Gcogr;aphy. A curious incident zrcgarding a strait oc currcd during the Rlusian war : It would have been ludicrous, if anything can be lu dierous connected with war. Commodore Elliot was blockading a Russian squadron in the Gulf of S sghalin, on the east coast of Siberia. Thinking he had the RuIssains in a trlde sac, bhe complacently waited for them to come out, as the water was too shallh,w for him to attack them. As the enemy did not come out he sent in to investigate, and found, tohis asonishment, that Iussians and ships had vanished ! While lie ha: b:en wailing for them in tile south they had quietly slipped out by the north, teaching both hims and the British government a rather severe leusun in geography, as it had been thought that Saghalin was an isthmnus; they were totally unaware of a narrow channel leading from the Gulf to the Sea of Okhotsk. TIIERE are two thins which will make us happy in this world if we attend to them. The first is never to vex ourselve...

Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

S "raveller. Winter Weatherin Dakota-One dal quite recently found us fifteen miles north of Towner, Dak., on the sharp isopes of one of thdse ronnded hills which are sui:h a charac teristic feature of the landscape in the Mouse "River country. Not a'cloud is in the sky and the even, white glow along the horizon out lines the most distant objects with startling plainness. The sunlight unimpeded in its'i flight to the earth, is warm upon the land. The view is glorious. A scattered grove of gnarled oaks covers the slope, while from its base and reaching southward to the distant Mouse River. rise a succession of rounded, grass covered buttes, with many a grassy meadow between their crests. Bands of cattle and droves of horses are scattered here and there, as contentedly grazing on the rich feed as if it were leafy June' iistead of late November. But for) the leafless trees and keen nip of the air, during the early morning hours, there is no evidence that winter is here. Ilow odd it seem...

A Model House. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

A Hodcl HLouse.c The site of the house should be slightly elevated, and the soil by which it is sur rounded should be gravelly. There should be no grove nor clump of trees so close to; it as to shut out the sunlight. ".The ground should be theroughly drained, and great care taken to have the. floor and walls or 'the cellar rendered impervious to moisture. The several large-windows with which the cellar should be supplied, should be kept open at all times excepting in very inclement weather, for cellars should be bright and light and airy. The walls of the rooms should be real air chambers. There should be no dark chambers; no large closets without ventila. tion. At the top of the hall there should be a glass skylight to be generally kept open to carryaway vitiated air. The heating should lbe by a system of hot water or steam pipes in the cellar. The hall skylight is the general ventilator, but each room should have its own ssstem of ventilation,, and molern ingenuity has thus far fa...

A father, when his daughter became a bride, gave her a golden casket with the in: junction not to pass it into other handy, for it held a charm which in her keeping would be of inestimable value to her as the mietrEBs of the house. Not only was aho to have the entire care of it, but she was to take it every morning to the cellar, the kilthen,the dining room., the library, the bedroom, and remain with it in each place for five minutes, look. ing carefully about.

The casket was opened. it was found to contain an old parchment, on which was written these words: o The eyes of the mistress are worth one hundred paire of servants' hands."

The Tongue. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

The T'anigl.. Taste is no: equally distributed over the whole surface of the tongue. T:ere are three nistinct regions or tracks, each (f which has to perform its own special office or function, Toe tip of the tongue is concerned mainly with pungent and ncid tastes; the middle portion is sensitive chiefly to sweets or bit ter, while the back or lower portion con tines itself entirely to the flavors of roast meats, butter, oil, and rich and fatty sub stnuces. There are very good reasons for this sub division of faculties in the tongue, the ohject heiug, as ic were, to make each piece of food unsiergo three separate examinations, which rmust be successively passed before it is ad mitted into full participation in the human economy. The first examination gets rid of substances which would be actively and im mediately destructive to the very tissues of the mouth and body;, the second dis criminates between poisonops and chemically harmless food stiffs ;and tie third merely decides.the mi...

In the interior there are also many of these statione, at each cf which the traveller finds his journey barred unless he -has the proper passport; so it is a very difficult matter to escape, but many prefer to risk their lives on the frozen plains than bear the hardships of the prison.

Treacheraus Arabs. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 11 February 1891

Treacher-ous Arabs. To prove how dangerous it was to show nnv clemency to the Arabs from among the enemy, the fo!lowing incident which occurred at Ilellana will afford a good example. An English ellicer of the mounted corps, re turning from a reconnoissancei saw under a rock no Arab and two women. Approaching them alone, without any weapon in his hand, the ollicer called on the Arab to sur render. The Arab acquiescing, the officer approached within three yards of the party, and told the man to drive his spears into the ground. The Arab at once sprang to his feet, and made a thrust at the otlicer with his spear; t.hle latter with difficulty evaded the blow by wheeling his horse round; while the spr.r sgried hisladdle, Thereupon an other E?gliso fllicer rode up and shot the Arab. The next incident shows how ill-founded was the reproac!l cast on the Egyptarn Army of undue severity torward the enemy.
