RAPID DAMES AND GIRLS. (WORLD.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

RAPID DAIME AND . GRLS. (WORLD.) Tnn sage, be he who he may, who first developed the modern creed, that it is the duty of woman to render her self the companion of man by sharing his overy pursuit, no matter at what cost of discomfort to herself or to him, has much, very much to answer for. The evil influenco of the doctrine has boon incalculable. Like all theories it sounded passing well ; men wore to be softened and rofined by the Influoncn and the colnstant companionship of women, while the latter were to have their thoughts onnobled and their minds enlarged by the edifying conversation of the superior sex. All those who mingle much in the fashionable society of the day know tolerably well holy these fair visions have been realized ; how in the impatience of the restraint thus attempt ed to be imposed upon their manners and their conversation, men have broken bounds altogether, and, instead of curbing their speech, in deference to the women who thus thrust themselves upon them, h...

SATURDAY, MAR. 11, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

SATURDAY, MAR. 11, 1876. WE generally find in connection with our municipal boundary streets and roads where the maintenance and repair thereof are concerned, much neglect prevails.' This holds good at the present time. with the boundary lines of Collingwood and Fitzroy-viz., Smith street and Heidelberg road. We believe that the maintenance of these two roads have for some time been undertaken .by, the two Imunicipalities alternately year by year. Last year the City of Collingwood had the charge of the roads-and, we must say, so far as Heidolberg road and the upper por tion of Smith street are concerned, we cannot recollect the time when they were in so wretched and dilapidated a condition; the centres of the roads are full of holes varying in depth from one to four inches-some small and some of considerable extent. In addition to thse 'the scraping and cleansing seetm to have been abandoned altogether the accumulation of dust and animal excreta at the sides has been going on for a ...

CHEESE FACTORIES IN AMERICA. (PHILADELPHIA LEDGER.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 18 March 1876

CHEESE FACTORIES ITN AMfERICA. (P?ILADELPHIA LEDGER.) TnHE factory system of making butter and cheese, an industry of great and growing commercial importance, and the history of which is full of interest ing and useful lessons, has grown up in this country within tho last quarter bf a century from small beginnings. Prior to 1851 Herkimer and Oneider counties, in Central New York, had become somewhat famous for their cheese products, their dairies being then managed by individual owners with varying and somewhat uncertain suc cess. Jessie Williams, a dairyman, living near Rome, in Oneida county, had achieved a reputation for making cheese of the best quality, and when, in 1851, one of his sons was married and went to live on another dairy farm in the neighborhood, Mr. Williams endeavored to contract for the sale of cheese made by his son at the enhanced price paid for his own products. He recognized the fact that to secure this the cheese must be as good as his own, and he determined...

RATIONAL EXCITEMENT. (SATURDAY REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 18 March 1876

RATIONAL EXCITEMENT. (sATrunDA IsVIxw.) B. THE love of excitement sseoms to a have been commonly regarded as a dis ir, turbing force in volition. People areo' Ssupposed to. indulge in it, not from de liberate preference, but simply from y; the overmastering influence of the ex . citing pleasure. 'According to this d view, which has been advocated by philosophers from Plato downwards, d the,force of excitement is the power of ra present gratification which, by taking ' full possession of consciousness, ex cludes all reflection, comparison of ends, and deliberate preference of one end to e another. One familiar illustration of e. this process, is the condition of a morally weak and highly sensitive 9' mind .in view of an object of sensuous h gratification immediately presented to e it. And there is little doubt that this g 'is the mode in which most persons arel acted upon by1 'the intenser forms of; pleasure. We, may see abundant illustrations, of this weakness in the: 'everyday life...

LOOKING BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 18 March 1876

KLkJ OKING BACK. I MAY livb' lonig, but some old days Of dear, dedpJoy akin to pain Some suns that set on woodland ways Will never rise, for me again : By shining sea, and glad, green shore Thatfrolio wavesran home to kiss, Some words I heard that nevermore Will thrill me with their mystio bliss. 0 love still throbs your'living heart You have not crossed death's sullon tide. A deeper deep hold's us apart I We were hro'e near if you had died If you had 'dlid in those old days When light was on the shining sea, And all the fragrant woodland 'ways Wore paths of hope for you and me. Dead leaves are in those woodland ways Bold are the lips that used to kiss; 'T were idle to recall those days, Or sigh for all that vanished bliss I Do you still wear your old-time grace, And charm now loves with ancient wiles P? Could I but watch your faithless face, I'd know the moaning of your smiles.

"FLITTING" AT THE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 18 March 1876

"FLITTING" AT' THE ZOO LOGICAL GARDENS, THE Zoplogical Gardens in the Regent's Park were early, on Saturday morning, the scene of what may liter ally be called a moving drama. The I Council of the Zoological Society had built a new lion and tiger house, and the problem presented for the solution of Mr. Bartlett and the keepers was 3 how to get the lions and tigers into it. i The building itself is one of which, regarded as a place of residence, any ' well-regulated lion or tiger might well be proud. .... . . Avoiding defects noticed elsewhere, the Zoological Society haveoplanned and built a hand some, lofty, well-lighted, and perfectly 1 ventilated gallery, warm in winter and I cool in summer. The dens, fourteen in number, occupy one side, facing a range of lofty casements, which in summer may be thrown back, securing the fullest amount of fresh air com bined with protection from the rays of the sun. All being ready, the process of "flitting," delicate, difficult, and not altogether...

LIFE IN CANADA. (MACMILLAN'S MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 18 March 1876

LIFE IN CANADA. (MAOMIL~LAN'S MAAZINE.) ArL' Canadian towns are much alike. The approach to Kisawlee is by a long, straight, dusty road, lined on each side by rows of little painted frame-houses, standing within wooden railings, separated only from each other by a few yards of burnt-up grass, or a feeble attempt at a flower-bed, and fronted by' a plank side-wall raised high above the road, a trap for the unwary on dark nights. Gradually the long, straight suburban road merges into a street the street of the town--a ghastly array of hideous brick houses, every one of them crammed from cellar to garret with merchandise, the names of their owners painted in flaming characters on boards of all shapes. and sizes a l'Americaine. Cross streets run in at intervals, up which are to be found' the churches, with tin spires gleaming. in the sun, hotels and taverns, banks, post office, and town hall, fading away into private residences, the same little red and white villas, and so on, till we go...

CHAPTER XLI. A rxw words of explanation and en couragement sufficed to show the ex. tent of the peril to which the party was exposed, and the hope of escaping. In loss time than it would take to tell, the horses were saddled, and all were mounted for flight; but even before this was accomplished, the fire had gained the crest of the hills, and was swooping downwards with accelerated fury. The spectacle was sublime; but the danger was too pressing to admit of a moment's delay in admiration of its sublimity; and descending the hill at a quick pace, the fugitives reached the plain. Not so rapidly, however, that the fireo had not outstripped them. Blazing embers had boon convoyed by the wind above their heads, and, falling on the dry and long grass, had ignited it in more spots than one, while the terrified horses plunged, roared, and threatened to become unmanageable. fBy Incredible exertions, however, the party succeeded in heading timhe fire, which, now apreading behind them like a b...
