Salt is Good. A Few of the Things it is Useful For, With Reasons Why. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

Salt is Good. A Few of the Things it is Useful For, With Reasons Why. " Salt is good.". It is the language of in spiration as well as of theraputics. In all the range of the household materia medida there is no remedy half so valuable as com mon salt, both because of its real curative properties and of its immediate availability. And, moreover, it has this advantage over more pretentious remedies, that seldom in case of overzeal or mismanagement can it be made to do mischief. If it doeso't heal, it won't kill, at any rate. Here are some of the things it is good for : HIeated dry and applied to the outer sur face over the seat of inllammation or con. gcstion it wil give almost instant relief; while applications of a strung hot solution of salt in water or vinegar acts like magic upon toothaclse, eirache, neuralgic headache, and all that brood of distressing ills. For catarrhal affections and sore throat a spray of warm water and salt is almost a specilic, and is one of the standard p...

A CONVENIENT METAMORPHOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

A CONVENIENT METAMOR PHOSIS. They had rowed on the river an hour or so As the shades were beginning to fall, And over the water's soft murmuring flow Was wafted each twilight call. He rowed very slowly, as if to return Was something more dreaded thai night, And gazed at the maid who reclined in the stern With dreamy, unspoken delight. He quaffed in her presence love's nectas so sweet, And murmured quite softly, " What bliss It would be if as sister this maid I could greet, For a sister allows a fond kiss !" But the maiden had heard, though he spoke with bent head, And coughing a gentle ahem I She smiled at him archly and then sweetly said, " Consider me sister pro tem I"

Wise Thoughts for Wise Women. See it These Are Not Just Exactly Your Own Sentiments. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

iWise Thoughts for Wise Women. See if These Are Not Just Exactly Your Own Sentiments. With time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes satin. One cannot imagine how much cleverness is necessary not to be ridiculous. A woman would be in despair if nature had formed her as fashion makes her ap. pear. Tie change of fashions is the tax that the industry of the poor levies upon the vanity of the rich. There are three things that women throw away-their time, their money anti their health. The wealthiest one is the one who is most economical; the poorest, the one who is most miserly. The greatest evidence of demoralisation is the respect paid to wealth. Woman is lovliest in womanly attire. The error of certain women-is to imagine that to acquire distinction they,m nst imitate the manners of men. The knowledge of the charms, one pos sesses prompts one to. utilise them. I can not see hy iv women are sod desirous of imitating men. , A woman whose ruling passion is not 'vanity is- superior to:...

POWNEY'S PRIDE AND REDPATH'S RATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

POWNE?Y'S PRIDEI' AND REDPATH'S RATTLE. Considerable amusement was created during the hearing of a case at Bruns wick court on Wednesday morning, in which William J. Powney, manager of a produce store, sought to recover a possession of a dog from a lady named Redpath. Mr. Shannon appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Grylls for the de fence. Mr. Shannon had quite a little "song to sing, oh." Unlike Hood's poem, it was the song of two dogs: and not the song of the shirt, and the tale which he unfolded, regarding two tailless pups, was humorous. Some time ago "a party by the name of Ketlle "-not Johnson, as in the " Lancashire Lass," had a litter of pups from a bright little fox terrier, and two of these he gave away one to Mrs. Redpath, the other to the plamlniff. Kind and indulgent, Mlrs. Redpath undertook the care of the canine pets and by and bye, as they grew in beauty and in grace, there was a double christering, one pup bh ing called Beelzebub and the other Rattle.

THE IMP OF THE PERVERSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 April 1891

THE IMP OF THE PERVERSE. He sat within his office in the city's busy mart, And thought this very happy thought "To-morrow I'll depart For quiet country places, where the scenes that greet me here, And all the city noises shall be lost to eye and ear. Away with all this ceaseless ruse; I'm weary of the strife. Oh, what a pleasure it would be to lead a farmer's life ! 1'11 Fpend my week's vacation in the country fresh and free, Its verdant fields and solitude are just the thing for me. He climbed up in the old barn's mow to give the horses hay, And thought this very happy thought -" To-morrow I'll away From this dull monotony and dreary stretch of green ; I'm going to the city, where there's something to be seen. Why must I, all my weary days, plod one prosaic round ? Oh, I would dwell where busy hands in multitudes abound I I'll spend my week's vacation in the city's throbbing heart, Of which, did fortune favor me, I'd be an active part."
