BOYS WHO BECAME FAMOUS. c~- By Davta KEn. TBE BOY AND THE BEAR. CHAPTER I. It was adull, cheerless day in the autumn of 1771.

A NEW BUILDING SOCIETY. SOMETFIlNG FOR THE WORK ING MAN. A CAPITAL IDEA. A meeting was held at the Brunswick Mechanics' Institute on Thursday even- ing, 18th inst, for the purpose of bring- ing under notice of the public the aims and objects of the First Victorian Co- operative Permanent Building Society, which it is proposed to register under the Act.

Indeed the scheme enunciated denotes careful forethought; is essentially co-operative, and should not take long to work its way into the full favor of the public. Mr. Mottram remarked that the motto   of the society is " All for each and each fer all." It raises a fund by subscrip- tion on shares, repayments, transfer fees, redemptions and profits of erection to secure for its members freehold or leasehold properties, and its fortnightly repayments of prin...

BREVITIES. Make It Up Ere You Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

BREVITIES. Make It Up Ere You Sleep. Our temper runs away at times,as everybody knows, We say things while we're angry that we won't say in repose. To show the truest penitence this little maxim keep: Just make it up before you go to sleep. Don't let the darkness find you with a sword of anger drawn To make some fond heart suffer till the breaking of the dawn. Come, let your anger vanish; knock your pride into a heap; Just make it up before you go to sleep. Who knows where you will wander when the shades of night depart I Don't enter that dim country with hot anger in your heart I Don't mind the provocation-as ye sow so shall ye reap. Just make it up before you go to sleep. Some 350 years ago Martin Luther said -" The sparrow should be killed wherever found."

"I am in the place where' I am. demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and there fore the truth I speak, impugn it. whoso e list." W I [APRIL 15TH., 89g1. A VEnI considerable amount of atten tion has been recently directed towards reports appearing in the columns of the daily press, indicating that "log rolling" is already taking place in connection with the Metropolitan Board of Works, and in which the name of our Brunswick representative, Cr. Fraser, was rather unpleasantly associated. Providing that all the allegations raised were correct, and had not gone without the bounds of reason to the realms of painted fancy and distorted imagination, it is not at all a matter of surprise that public men should have taken the incident up so warmly. For, undoubtedly, all the bene ficial results and long cherished hopes raised with the establishment of such a board would be utterly crushed and dis pelled were such tendencies to be dis played at so early a stage, and should members lose c...
