POLICE NEWS. COBURG.-TUESl'AY. - Before Major Bartrop, -P.M., and Messrs. M'Crory, . Richads and Voice, J's.P. APPEAL. The magistrates first sat as a court of appeal, and the first case heard was that .in which J. T. Vincent appealel against the valuation of five Newlands' properties, which he maintained should have been valued as one. The court held thatthe grounds of con. plaintwere not those which could be de cided by this court, and as the objection did not come within the heading of un fairness or excessiveneor, the General Sessions would have to be applied to. Mr. Vincent furthermore appealed against the amount of valuation-- 60 per acre-on the ground that only a certain portion of the nine acres were available for letting. Peter O'Shanassy, valuator, said that the land had a letting value of 415 for '' fossicking" purposes. Besides, the five acres in question was not worked out, and was still available for some stone. Mr. Vincent adduced evidence in support of his contention,...

In the Vosges Mountains, the young women who dress the bride strive as towbho shall stick the first pin in the bridal. robe,as the successful one will be married the same rear. ," It war lucky for English bridemaids to throw pins away. The bride must not look into the mirror after she is dressed for the ceremony, unless she puts on some article of apparel:after:. ward. In Russia the bride must avoid eating tihe wedding cake on the eve of the ceremony, or will lose her husband's love.

The Superstition of the Horseshoe. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 March 1891

The Superstition of thel orsesioe. The horseshoe was of old held to be of especial service as a security against the at tacks of evil spirits. This virtue may have been assigned, per hsaps, by the rule of contraries, from it being a thing incompatible with the cloven foot of the Evil One ; or from the rude resemblance which the horseshoe bears to the rays of glory which in ancient pictu.res are made to surround the heads of saints and an'els or, nsally, froem some notion of its purity ac quired through passing through the fire. The latter supposition receives some countenance from the melthod resorted to for the cure of horses that had become vicious, or ahilicted by any distemper which village furricry did not understland ; such disease was invariably attributed to witch crafl, and the mode of cure seems to imply the belief that the imperfect purification by fire of the shoes which the animal wore hatl allorded an inlet to malevolent influenc:s. Accordingly, tile horse was led into...

How to Win Attention. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 March 1891

hIotw to rinn. Attention. A well-known and very successful woman in society easily wins admiration by seeming to give herself wholly up to the person talking with her. If it is a man, he has her entire attention eyes, ears, mind-as though he were the only person in the room or the world for that short, delicious moment, while at the same time she seems to feel the presence of those about her, and yields her motions to sur rounding circumstances in a graceful, easy way, that makes the onlooker feel certain of a possible " grand future in store " for him also. It is a rare combination of concentration I and adaptability which many of our young ladies would do well to cultivate. Youi know bow disagreeable it is to have them talk to you, with their eyes all the time hlying here and there, over your shoulder, over their own; fixing dress or bracelet; seemingly forgetful of your presence, often in s m: by-currentof thought. You never feel like saying anything worth while. With this lady, ...

THE SALVATION ARMY. From the MEDIUM.

Wine and Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 March 1891

Wine andifI Water. Wine, wine, thy power and praise Have ever been echoed in minstrel lays; Blit water, I deem, has a mightier claim To fill up a niche in the temnple of Fame. Ye who are bred in Anacreon's school May sneer at my strain as the song of a fool; Ye are wise, no doubt, but have yet to learn How the tongue can cleave and the veins can burn. Should ye ever be one of the fainting band, With your brow to the sun and your feet to the sand, I should wager the thing I'm most loth to spare That your Bacchanal chorus would never ring there: Traverse the desert, end then ye can tell What treasures exist in the cold deep well; Sink in despair on the red, parched earth, And then ye may reckon what water is worth. Famine is laying her hand of bone On a ship becalmed in a torrid zone; The gnawing of hunger's worm is past. lut fiery thirst lives on to the last. The stoutest one of the gallant crew Ilath a cheek and lips of ghastly huel; The hot blood stands in each glassy eye, And "Wat...

TRAM ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 4 March 1891

TRAM ACCIDENT. Between 11 and 12 o'clock on Friday night, a rather serious accident happened on the lrunswick tram line, a little beyond where the Clifton Hill railway crosses the Sydney-road. Gripman M'Culloch, who was in charge of No. 127 car, was on his way from Melbourne, and on nearing the Sarah Sands Hotel he observed a horse and buggy approach ing at a very rapid pace. He at once stopped the tram, and the horse dashed into the dummy, breaking in the front and two ,f the iron uprights. A young man, who was on the dummy, and his mother, had a very narrow escape. As it was, the young man, in trying to ward off the shaft of the trap from his mother, received some nasty injuries to his hand and arm. The occupant of the buggy, a Mr. Bray, who resides at South Melbourne, was thrown out, and received some nasty wounds on the head and arms and a severy shaking. It appears the horse had bolted, the driver losing control of it. The damage done to the dummy is estimated at between £5 and...

A New London Tower. London is to hasean E'ffel tower that will out-E:flel Eiffel. It is to bo twelve hundred feet high, overtopping the wonder cf 'Paris by two hundred feet. The company has been formed, the stock subscribed, and the con. tracts are being let. Chicago will have an interest in the enterprise, as one did in the E ffel tower, for the same elevator company is aniso to build the elevators for the new tower at London. Estimates are now being prepared for that purpose. The fabulous profits of the E ff-l Tower are a matter of notoriety. London, with her own .live millions and her hur. dreds of thousands of continual visitors, could support a tower quite as well as Paris. The president of the elevator company says that the new tower will undoubtedly be built, and that it will cost more, probably, than the E ffid Tower. On being asked how much the elevators for the rLndon tower would cost, the prersi dent said: 'Tthe two we put in the Eiffel Tower cost about twenty thousand po...
