RIVAL AGENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
RIVAL. AGENTS. Considerable interest was centered in a case heard at the lrunswick court on Wednesday, in which the contending parties were two well known land and estate agents, Samuel T. Kenyon and Alexander Ferguson. The lirst-named sought to recover a sumn of £5, being portion of commission received for a sale which afterwards fell through. The statement of plaintiff was that, in July last, acting as agent for the vendor, 1'Queen, lie sold a piece of land to a man manned Salome, and received a sum of £ 10 as deposit. The contract was signed, and Mr. Ferguson, who held that he was actilg in conjunction as agent, claimed and received half the conmmission (£10), signing an agree mnent to return this in the event of any unforscen contingencies arising. Later on, owing to the fact that the vendor was unable to give a certificate of title, the sale fell through, and Kenyon, on receiving a Cout ty court summons, paid the E10 into court. Defendant refused, however, to return his proport...

DISHONEST WOOD SELLERS. A \VARNING TO TILHE PUBLIC. A young maln named Dennis lReardon was arrested on Saturday night by Constable Jolly, of Brunswick, on a charge of being drunk while in charge of a horse and dray. The man at the time had a colllpanion with him inl a similar coindition, ut lihe succeeded in efl'cting his escape. Reardon and his dray (which contained a load of wood) were conveyed to the lock-up. The police at Brunswick and elsewhere have received t:unulerous complaints as to the conduct of several men who lhawk lice wood in their persistent enlleavors to lead persons to purchase their wood. Their practice is to pursue their calling after nightfall, when they call upou houseloldlers with lpitiabhle stories as to having lost their way, or as to their horses having gone l;lme or Ibecomle knocked up, and they offer to sell a load of woo I at what is apparently a very low figure.

SPORTS AND PASTIMES. FOOTBALL [MESIS. BRUNSWICK V. CARLTON. T'hera was an attendance of fully 3)000, including a fair sprinkling of ladies, to witness the inauguration of the football season on the Brunswick recreation reserve last Saturday after noon, when the annlual match between the C;arlton rand locals was contested. Previously tihe visitors have invariably been successful, but the fact that the antalgamnation of the South Brunswick with the town had this season taken place, together with the team of 23 against 20, made local barrackers sanguine of success, it being generally conceded that we should have a very strong junior club for the coming coLn tests. Prior to a start being made, Bromiley was elected captain for the ensuing season and Lorrain, who was a one time St. Kihla supporter. filled the post of captain for the visitors.

Not Generally Known. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
Not Generally Known. --o9 Standing by a friend, the other day, I ex pressed a wish to know which point was tile north. He at once pulled out his watch. looked at it, and pointed to the north. I asked him whether he had a compass at. tached to his watch. " All watches," he re plied, " are compasses." Then he explained to me how this was. Pcint the hour hand to the sun, and thesouth is exactly half way between the hour and the figr.re twelve on the watch. For instance, suppose that it is four o'clock. Point the hand indicating four to the Eun and two on the watch is exactly south. Suppose that it is eight o'clock; point the hand indicating eight to the sun, and the figure ten on the watch is due south. 3[y friend was quite surprised that I did not know this, but 1 feel sure that many share my ignorance.
A Balloon Accident. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
A Balloon Accident. An ascension of the balloon Patrie took place from the Avenue de la Defense de Paris, at Courbevoie. at four o'clock one afternoon. Mir. Paul Leprince, the cwronaut. and .Mr. George Dsmuit, one of his friensl, both nineteen years of age, were in the car. The ascent was very rapid. The spectators who were present saw tie balloon assume suddenly a peculiar shape. First it flattened out, then it assumed the shape of a spindle, then that of a ball. They sapposed at first that the balloon was a dirigible air ship ; but the real facts became apparent by the swaying of the balloon, and then by the awful drop that followed. " The balloon has burst. and the poor unt. fortunate are lost !" cried the spea tatlos. This is what took place as narrated by JMr. Paul L prince, who tr.s beten ood enough to give us the facts of tile case : There was nothing unusual about the in flating operations. For a moment,however, the balloon was carried by the wind against the branches of aca...
Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
Subjects for Thoughnt. EAcn individual owes a duty to society to exert an inlluerce against evil doing, and he cannot ignore it with impunity. One of the most powerful of human influences is that of a popular opinion. Every one respects it, and in greater or less degree is led by it, consciously or unconsciously. Whether as a restraint or an incentive, it is ever actively moulding the conduct of the community. But what is popular opinion ? Itis nothing more than the aggregate of in dividual opinion, rnd it is made manifest only by the frank expreesion of each indi vidual in various and characteristic ways. It is not an outside something which we can take in and analyse and diecues, for each one of us is daily contributing his or her share to its formation. We cannot rail at it for being frivolous or cruel or fickle or untrust worthy without in a degree condemning ourselves in the same direction. What ever be its charaicer, we must each accept a measure of responsibility in having ma...

The Inner Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
The Inner Man. Atmospheric Humidity.-The amount of aqueous vapor that the atmosphere is cap- . able of holding varies with its temperature, briog greater when the air is warm, greater in Summer than in Winter and greater in a warm than a cold climate. The relative humidity exercises a powerful influence upon animal and vegetable life. It is a well-known fact that the inhabitants of a dry climate are e as a rule, thin and sallow, while thoso living ina moist insular country have well developed t figures and fresh, ruddy complexions. It is t to the greater dryness of this country that we owe the peculiar phisique of our pvople, s which is so ddiffrent from that of our Eugl sh Ancestors.

AUNT CYNTHIA'S PRIZE PEACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 April 1891
AUNT CYNTHIA'S PRIZE PEACH. By A. TEMPLE BELLEW. Miss Enderbury's mantelpiece was always a matter of curiosity and pleasure to her numerous nephews and nieces; each sepa rate article upon it posessed a charm in their eyes, but the mo=t charming of all was an ordinary pickle jar with one solitary peach reposing in a sea of syrup at the bottom. The younger children looked upon it merely as a tempting morcel placed tantalie. ingly beyond their reach, but the cider ones often wondered how it came to be given a place among the family daguerrotypes, wax flowers, and china match safes, and often teased their aunt to tell them the reason. In vain; Aunt Cynthia would never disclose the mystery. She had never told an3one, she said, and she never would ; and she would shake her head decidedly, until the little corkEcrwC ringlets bhohed again ; and then, when all had left the room, she would stand with clasped hands gazing tenderly at the jar, and sigh fearfully," No one ehallcvor know." Howeve...
