NEW INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 March 1891

NEW INDUSTRY. An American paper suggests that an effective check on train robbery would be the oflfring of a reward by the express company for the body of any brigand who tampered with the treasure box. This might work well. It would certainly give a zest to trans continental travel, which it now lacks. En gineers, firemen, and brakemen, before haul ing from a elation, would see that their pieces were properly loaded, and would keep a keen lookout for game on the way. It would add new peril to the tramps' free ride excursions. When the genuine article grew scarce. the magnitude of the reward might induce the engineer to slow upon sighting a tramp, and as he approached the break beam, pot him on suspicion. The fireman would testify that oe was a desperate looking character, and that the only chance of saeving the trea sure hex was shooting him on the spot, be fore he got the drop on the train men. At three thousand dollars a tramp, those hard worked employee might soon retire on a co...

WHAT IS REPARTEE? [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 March 1891

W?VIAT IS REPARTEE? ------- o------~O ---- Repartee is a sudden flash. It is turning a current of thought in an opposite direction. It is the upsetting of a train of thought. It is really deforming a thought. Rtepartee is a case where one speaker makes a plainstate ment, aimed in a certain direction, which a hearer collides with and reversea so as to shoot straight back again at the speaker. 'What I want,' said a pompous orator, aiming at his antagonist, ' is good common 'Exactly,' was the whispered reply, 'that is just what youneed.' Repartee is often very unkind, but its un kindntes is excusable when the person in dulging in it has been attacked. For in stance, Abernethy, the famous surgeon sworn violently at a poor Irish pavior who had piled some paving-stones on the doctor's sidewalk. 'Remove them ! - away with them !' screamed Abernethy, with a terrible oath. ' But where shall I take them to 7' asked Pat. 'To hell with them !' exclaimed the doctor. ' Hadn't I better take them t...

CORRIBPONDENCE. THE GROCIERS'BALF-HOLIDAY. To thle Editor rd the .Leader. Sir-,-I learn witb,much regret that there is a likelihood .of the much appreciated early elodeng and half holiday system baing adone away with, as regards the grocety trade here. Just as we began to feel that we were on a level with other trades and professions, and to consider the early closiog and half-holiday as something thoroughly established, we find one or two avaricious individuals seeking to upset the pleasure of the trade.

Long Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 March 1891

Long Life.-1 wonder if MIethuselan found the long years of his life worth living? In those days, human life, in its advantazes and enjoyments, was but slightly in advance of that of the animal; man wandered liket animals, dwelling in tents, cares, or any where that offered shelter and protectiru from the elements, beasts of prey and neighb boring tribes of men, often as blood-thirst'y as tilhe wild beasts; his sustenance was about as'mea?re and precarious as that of the ani mal, while his clothing was the'skins of ani mals, second hand at best. If Methuselahb had spent nine hundred and sikty.nine years to his best advantage in travel, journeying at the rate of twenty miles per day, he would have travelled seven million, seventy-three thousand, seven hundred miles, while the niodern, riding' in ease and cotifort, would, in seventy years, have journeyed thirty mil lion; three huridredlthousand miles, to travel which Mr. Methuselah would require an ex tension in his years to over four ...
