COUNCILLORS AND CRICKET. THE RETURN MUFF MATCH. (Br ONE or THE TEAM.) The return match between teams representing the .:ranswick and Coburg t Councils was played on Wednesday f afternoon at the Coburg recreation I reserve, and was productive of a very great amount of merriment. The Brunswick team mustered at the town hall, where cabs were in waiting, and at first it seemed that the crew was not to I be a very large one. The Mayor (Cr. Fleming) was early on the scene, and puffed away vigorously at that famous clay of his in a manner which plainly 4 displayed his anxiety as to the result of the meeting. Mr. Eville hunted up the remnants of what had once been a first rate evening soft felt tile, whilst Jack Heeps forgot all about his cap for once, and donned his handsome boxer. Presently two o'clock slipped round, and the cry of " all aboard" was raised. Mr. Peverell, Mr. Odgen, Mr. House, and Ex-Cr. Clement were all there very much there-and soon we were off, the cab horses trotting o...

One Night of Horror. One night I went tobed with glossy brown hair, and the face of a girl of eighteen ; next morning I left mny room with hair as gray as i it is now. though forly two y'ers have passed away since then. In one niet.! an awful horror strrck me suddenly with the weight of scores of seats. My father was a Mr. Marriot, a ship broker, who lived in Russell square with his family, consisting of my mothrer and four children, of whom I was the eltest. One morning, in lecember of 1812, while we were sitting at breakfast, my mother re marked, as she linished reanding a letter which had just been delivered: " It's from Judith, Site wants Ellen to go and stay a month at The Willows. But I do not. like the iden. She never even called on us when site came back to England last summer. lIesides, we have known almost nothing of Iher for these years past."

The Hole. ---+ --- Jennie June's Opinions.-" Than journalism there are few harder things that a girl can try, it instead of confining herself to occasional fashion notes and goseip corre spondence, she takes a place on the regular staff of a paper and shoulders some of the serious work of journalism. For the five years that I was on the weekly and Sunday Times the staff never exceeded three, and for the meet part included only two persons. Toat was in war times, too, when people ex pected a good deal of life and fire from their papers. Between us we wrote the whole sheet except the weekly short story. " I was the exchange editor, theo dramatio critic, the musical critic and the book reviewer. I never turned in less than two columns, broad columns they were too, of editorials and another column and a half of minion editorial eketches of politicians and generals. With ell this I kept up a column and a half of my Epecial department, ' parlor and sidewalk goesip,' and attended to pretty...

Chaff. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
Chaff. The rerprt is denied that the editor of a certain weekly pep:r is going to Japan to mark teanchests, although it is known that his execrable chirography has long excited the. admiration of the heathen, who have ffttered him a pretty big salary to put some of his best licks of penmanship on tea con signments, and thus establish for them a distinct and unforgable brand. The following advertisement lately ap peared in an Irish daily: "Wanted, a gen tleman to undertake the sale of a patent medicine. The advertiser guarantees it will be profitable to the undertaker." An editor who was asked by a correepon dent," Do hogs pay ?" has carefully examined his subscription list, and deolares that they do not.

THE NATURE OF PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
THE NATURE OF PROVERBS. We probably none of us know how much we use proverbs in our daily speech; but it is certain that if they were withdrawn from the language we should find ourselves pulled up at every turn ; for we may almost say a language is not a language until it has pro verbs imbedded in it. Proverbs save a deal of thinking. They cften throw light upon a perplexity, solve a problem in morale, express a criticism upon current affairs, or throw a beam of wit or humour upon somo dark spot. Proverbs may be regarded as the gems of language, and many of the old proverbs might afford a text for an essay well worth writing and reading. "You must not look a gift horse in the mouth " was a proverb in St. Jerome's time. One of Ariosto's heroes in " Orlando Eurioso" jumps from the fry ing pan into the fire. How telling must have been the incidents connected with the original gift horse rashly criticised, or the fatal imprudence of the hapless denizens of the frying pmn, to have stampe...

AN ALL-ROUND INTELLECT UAL MAN. lHe was up in mathematics, had a taste for hydrostatics,and could talk about astro nomy from Aristarchus down; He could tell what kind of beans were de. voured by the Chaldeans, and he knew the data of every joke made by a circus clown.

Justice A'Beckett, a prepossessing young woman named Henrietta Milne, was placed in the dock to answer to a charge of wilfully making false registration of the I birth of a child. The sorroundings of the case appeared to be both peculiar and unusual.

A short tims afterwards, however, she returned to the registrar and informed him that she was incorrect in saying that she was married. Accused wished the declaration altered, but this request was refused, and the police getting to hear of the case, instituted proceedinga,..with theo result that she was brought before the Bruns wi:k magistrates and committed for trial.

EIGHT HOURS' DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
EIGHT HOURS' DAY. Holiday makers have latterly been singularly uniortunate in securing fine weather to permit of merry making. Eastsr Monday was miserably wet and cold, and Eight Hours' Day, which was celebrated last Tuesday, was on an equal footing with that already named. Drizzling rain fell intermittenly through out the early hours of the morning, and the day broke with a heavy leaden sky and bleak desolating wind. Notwith standing these draw-backs, however, Melbourne and subm ba were early alive with pleasure seekers, and truly Australians and Australian residents take their pleasure happily, whatever may be said of old John Boll. Picnic parties, who had hopes of spend ing a glorious hour or two in country scenes, were not dismayed, pa's and ma's were just as determined as if the weather had been all that could be desired-to see the monster procession L and sweethearts and sweet loves were equally as determined to brave the elements, and seek for amusement by trips and genial co...
