OUR TRIP TO MARY BOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 March 1891

OUR 0 TRIPI TO MARY BOROUGH. BT THE SECRETAIY. The annual fire brigades demonstra tion was held at Maryborough last week, and of course the Brunswick Volunteers joined the goodly crew who sailed for that pretty little country town. Starting at half-past nine on Tuesday morning, 10th inst., we left the reelhouee under the command of Lient. Gainoae, and with our blankets rolled round our shoulders made for the railway station. We detarmined at the outset that the brigade should gain the name, of being well disciplined and steady, and as a result carried off the second prize for discipline and bearing. Embarking at Spencer-street, about 10 o'clock, we were soon steaming gaily away from the dust and smoke of the city to the parer air of the country, and after a long journey, enlivened by jest and song, arrived at Maryborough at 3.30 p.m. Headed by the Life Boat Crew, we marched through the town and gained special words of praise in the columns of a local newspaper on the general apppara...

8PORTS AND PASTIMES. CRICKET MEMS. BOYLE AND SCOTT'S CUP. COBURG V. ORMOND. As the competition for Boyle and Scott's Cup draws nearer to a close, the interest in the contest grows more exciting, and speculation is rife us to who will ultimately isod the trophy. Lset year's winners, the Coburg, had on Saturday last to meet their most dreaded opponents, the Ormond, and very many were the opinions expressed as to the ultimate result of the match. Members of the Clhgrg team were very sanguine of success as they journeyed to the 'Varsity ground last Saturday, but the result of the day's play makes things look anything but bright for them. However, it is to be hoped that they will not in any way be dismayed, but that they will return to the .cotest next Saturday still deter mined to pluck Lbe .laurels of success from their opponents, and who knows, but that the bowling of our own two or three good men may yet scatter the stumps for a small score in the second innings, and the steady play ...

' Back!' she cried, in the musical lindoo, and ' i oice as clear and mrelodioas as the chime of sweet toned bells, and I recoiled in consterna tion. Without deigning to give me another glance, she stooped and raised the broken leaf from the garden path and pressed it fondly to hier cheek with a passionate look of hie and sorrow that went thirough me like a knife, f.,r 1 felt that I was its cause. Turning she went hastily towards the ebony plant and spread out her arms as if to embrace it, and leaves and blossoms grew quiet and still, and one by one they clusteredl down over her head and neck andcrept into her bosom, seeming to kiss and caress her, forgetful of thIir venom and their impotent, unnatural rage.

Tant5g fs a very old adage which says that "all work and no play maketh Jack a dull boy," and the truth of this paraphrase has never yet been gain said. For notwithstanding the fact :that a man may be possessed of more sthan ordinary powers of endurance, :and a love of work which passeth all 'other desires, he nevertheless at times feels, s.ith all his weaker brethren, that roccasional rests from toil are the acme aofcontentment, however brief they m.ay be in duration, and that man, like machinery, needs at intervals a relaxa tion from active duty. A never-chang ing application to labor becomes irk some and monotonous, and man is after all a sorry mortal if he cannot enjoy a little of the ordinary privileges accorded by the lords of creation to the lower animal life of the world. .Government officials are usually...

Storyettes. Grave and Gay, Epigrammatic and Otherwise A certain priest was attending the death bed of a wealthy old lady, and pricked up his cars when he heard her say, slowly and with difficulty: " Fatler-I've-given-you-" " Stay," cried he, anxious to have witnesses for this nuncupative testament; "I'll call in the family." When the fami!y had assembled, the old lady resumed : " Father-l've-given-yoi-a- great t deal of trouble." And, exhausted with the effort, she fell back and expired. They tell this little story of Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe. 'Walking in a friend's garden, one day, she asked the gardener : ' Have you ever read 'Uncle Tom's Cabin ?' " The perplexed fellow slowly unbent him sel. He was unwilling to wound the sensi bilities of Mrs. Stowe, and he wished to say the most for himself.

The Diamond Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 25 March 1891

The Diamond Traveller, I was returning to Petersburg, after an absence of some weeks. As our traitn stopped at T'wiss, a young man got in. who, while not particularly shy-looking, had the air of a big school-boy out for a holiday. In taking his place in the compartment, he first, with great care, put in the netting a leather valise which evidently contained something precious, as he scarcely took his eyes off it luring the first liour of the journey. You know how tediously monotonous a railway is -one quickly tirns looking through lie window of tile carriage at the straight -Toe of road flying past in the midst of plair.s Sa wearying sameness of aspect-and to elieve the tedium of the long, uneventful journey the passengers naturally began to chat and exchange opinions and confidences, I prompted alike by enrnei and curiosity ; and our young man wolid have found it a dilli cult matter to escape from his share of in terrogation.
