The Young Woman who Dressed in Correct Winter Costume. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890

The Young Woman who Dressed in Correct Winter Costume. The young woman utterly correct in winter garb is a strikingly picturteque object these days. From crown to too she wears only what is chic and what at first sight car ries the evidence of fashion's latest whim. Beginning with her hat, it is a patent leather, sailor trimmed, with a plain band of ribbon, and reflects in its glistening crown the upper windows of the houses she passes. She wears it just back of the waved fringe on her brow and above the knot of softly rolled hair. Of course she wears a caps of Russian cable with a Medicis collar, into which she will sink her chin whenever the weather:is sold, but which during these bright brisk lays falls open, showing a cream silk ker. chief fastened high at the neck with little silver pins. Her hands are thrust in a good sized muff not far enough to hide the thick; soft dogakin gloves and the edges of white suffs held together by silver links as thick as little ropes. As much of ...

The Barometer. What the Rising or the Falling of the Mercury Indicates. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890

1iee Barometer. use What the Rising or the Falling of the Mercury Indicates. Certain people have attempted to establish rules by which the coming state of 'thi weather may be predicted from the height of thle mercury in the barometer; and we ac cordingly find the words "rain," '' change able," " fair,"' "frosty," &c., engraved on the scale attached to common domestic Baron meters, as if, when the mercunrystandsat the height marked by these words, the weather is always subject to the viciEssitudes expressed by them. These marks are, however, entitled to no attention, and it is only surprising to find their use continued in the present times, when knowledge is so widely diflused. Two barometers,one near the level of the Hudson River and the other on the top of Trinity steeple, will differ by half inch, the latter. bring always have an inch lower than the former. If the words, therefore, engravred upon the plates are to be relied on, similar changes of weather could never happe...

A FRalistic Performinatec. Old Mr. Bazcnbee was returning from the club the other evening, when, as he hung his hat on the rack and preparedto go upstairs, he heard excited voices in the parlor and paused. A voice that he recognised as that of young Diffey, his daughter's beet young man, said sornfully : * Peace, woman I and weary me no longer with your reproaches. I tell you the day of my nuptials with Alice is fixed; and, by heavens, nothing shall prevent our union." Could these lharsh words be addressed to his own daughter? Yes. it was indeed Maria's sob-choked voice that replied : "Then this is the reward for my sacrifice, my devotion I At the very moment when our guilty secret can no longer be kept, you coolly tell toe that I have no hope. lRuined and forsaken. you taunt me with your latest conquest.

A Fierce Sea-Fight. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 20 August 1890

A Fierce Sea-Fight. By Lieutenant Murray. The good ship Constance, Captain Ward. had taken in her cargo of tea and silks, with other Chinese merehandise. at Canton, and was bound for New York. She was a fine, clipper-built craft of nine hundred tons, a fast sailer, and as handsome as a picture. Though engaged in legitimate commerce alone, still her armament had not been neglected, as she was designed, even from the laying of her keel, for the Eadt India trade, where Malay pirates are not unfre- quently encountered. The men-of-war of various nations have   made sad havoc among these famous sea robbers, destroying their proas, and burning their settlements upon the coast, but they are not even to-day entirely exterminated. We occasionally hear of their swarmiung upon the deck of some becalmed vessels, and overcoming the crew by sheer force of num- bers. Their weapons are of the rudest de- scription, and they rarely possess firearms of any sort, depending upon their long k...

Rising from where I had been sit-   ting, counting the cost of fitting up that room so as to make it look habitable, I went towards him and met his gaze pretty sharply. "Well, what is it ?" I asked. "I don't know," was the somewhat sullen reply. — "I don't feel right about those folks; and yet —" He stopped and scratched his head —" I don't know what I'm afraid of. Are you sure they left nothing behind them ?" The last words were uttered in such a tone I did not know for a minute what to say. "Left anything behind them ?" I re- plied. "They left their money, if that is what you mean. I don't know wh...

They do make wine from oranges. and there arr ideeoctions, vile and poisonous, which go under the name of orange wines. Wine is made from oranges in France and in Florida. It is claimed by some of the growers in Florida that there is more profit in turning the 0ranges into wine than there is in marketing the oranges.

Of this material I made a pair of mittens that delighted my masculinea " heart, and were the envy of his acquaintances. Warmer than anything he had worn, they were uninjured by the wet, and have been very durable. Oeu could probably obtain a good mitten pattern from a pattern dealer. I made mine with felled seanms, and the thumbs were sown in over-and-over stich, with the stoutiest of thread. I have also been perplexed to obtain a durable disheb-cloth.

Anyone who has Etruggled with the taskof "taking off," as they express it; a tireue pat tern, will agree with me that it is just abuot as tiresome a thing as falls to a woman's lot to perform. However, like everjthing else in life, a little ingenuity will save hours of worry. Let the material upon which you lay your pattern be either blaik or brown cambric. Then call into use your powder puff, instead of a chalk penoit and a deal of patience.
