Bromoform in Whooping Cough. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
Iromtoform in Whooping Colugh. Dr. Hugo Lowenthal, of Professor Sena tor's clinic in Berlin, has tried bromoform in the treatment of whooping cough, it hav ing been recommended by Dr. Stcpp, of Nurnbcrg, and he is disposed to agree with him in considering it a very valuable remedy. l)r. Lowenlthal says that it exerts an al most specific action upon whooping cough, at all events, if it is used at the commence ment. A hundred children were treated with it, varying in age fro~i eiglt vweeks to seven years. The liquid was simply drolspped into a tablespoonful of water, and formed a bead floating in the water. The quantity, dispensed at once was about adrachm. The parents were cautioned to keep the bromo form from the ligLt, as otherwise it is liable to be decomposed. As a rule, tihe good effects of the medicine began to show thiemelves on the second or third dnay, the vomiting being arrested withlin a week after the commencement of the bromofolnm. In cases where comnplica tions, such as...
Poetry. RAINBOW LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
IIoetrv. RAINBOW LAND. BY J. J. IIOCIHE. From the valley of morn, where teardrops hang, The glittering bow of promise sprung. So near it was plain to the dullest sight, So distant no hand could reach it quite; And over the hills and far away It stretched where the heights untrodden lay; But Fancy, truer of cyes than truth, Could sea Rlsibow Land from the plains of youth. Therewas gold uncounted in that fair land, There were shinninning laurels and honours grand, - Tere was love uudying and friendship true, Over the mountains bright and blue. But cugh and hard was thie upward climb On the treacherous slope of the hills of timhu, The laurels we saw from the plalin bslow Wes missed ere we reached the line of snow, And the gold for which we grcedily wrought, If we found at all, it was d-ally bought. Few are the eyes that are blest to find, The road to the land where all are blind, Where the happiest one is lie who Ihoes Alone for the happiness he gicve, Assd the only poor is the wretch ...

RECOMPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
RECOMPENSE. There is no joy but has its irop of sorrow, t No song but has an undertone of pain. Our yesterday, to-day and yet to-morrow Has e'er its sunshine interspersed with rain. We chase the brightest sunbeamis, and they lead us Full often where the deepest shadow lits! We fret at fate, but never will it heed us, Or turn the course of fortune other n ise. Woe sigh because too heavy seems life's burden, The path too ruggel for our weary feet. We weep because too meagre seems our guerdon. And long for wayside col andi meadows sweet. And yet we rise by obstacles surmousinted, By burdens bravely tirne and foes o'erthrown Each seeming hindrance ever may be counted Unto the higher realm a strjipi'g s'one. Wi ortlicas the gold white yet untried by fire, The tineet statue grows by many a. blow, lie who has much to meet may much aspire lie of the even way must stay below.

THE COURT STAR SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
THE COURT STAR SOCIAL. The 29th anniversary of the A.O.F. Court Star of Brunswick, was appro- t priateljr celebrated by a social on Monday evening last, the scene of festivity being laid at the Quarry Hall, Lygon-street. Members and their wives, their friends, and their sweet hearts, arrived early, notwithstanding the rain which doubtless militated against a larger attendance, and soon, with everything cosy and all that was enjoyable, a start was made. Mr. C. Holloway, of Brunswick-road, provided the music, which appeared exactly suited to the tastes of the dancers, who glided round the room with apparent content ment and evident pleasure. Then, to vary proceedings, dancing was sand wiched with songs, which were contri buted by the worthy M.C., P.C.R. Bro. Jennings, Miss Knott, Bros. Waters, Innis, Fitzgibbon, Hartley, Stone, and others. All were well rendered and highly appreciated, whilst the catering of Host Hall satisfied the desires of everyone. During an interval, P.C.R.

Tomato Catsup. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
Tomato Catsup. A WELL-TESTED recipe for this old favorite is as follows : Boil half a bushel of tuma. toes until soft, and remove the skins and seeds by passing the pulp through a scivc. Add to the liquid one fourth of a gallon of vinegar, one half cupful of salt, with ground spices'to taste, one teaspoonful of Cayenne pepper, and a little onion, if liked. Add also one-half pound of sugar. Boil slowly until reduced one.half. Set away for a few days ; then heat to boiling once, and if too thick to run easily, thin with good vinegar. Bottle and seal. If it is especially desired to keep the catsup bright in color, the spices must be put in a bag so that they may season without darkening the mix. ture. It is said that the women inmates of an English prison make the best tomato catsup in Great Britain. They first bake the toma. toes in an oven and when quite soft rub through.a seive, add to every pound of pulp a quart of Chili vinegar, one ounce of shal. lots, a quarter.of an ounce of wh...

CARRIAGE - WRECKERS. GROSS VANDALISM. A railway prosecution came under the attention of the Brunswick court on Wednesday, when Maurice Dillon was proceeded against for having on the 2nd March last, wilfully damaged the pro perty of the department. MIr. Leonard appeared for the Commissioners and Mr. Shannon for the defence. It appeared from the evidence given that t on the 2nd .lt. a Miss Billing was travelling by the 4.30 train, when she heard bad language used by a companion of defendant. Later on the carriage cushions were ripped open and thrown out by Thomas, who had not yet been served with a summons. After this both jumped over into another compart ment, and witness gave information to the South Brunswick station master, Mr. Roach. Mr. Roach questioned Dillon, and he distinctly denied that he had either done or seen any act of vandalism. Afterwards he admitted that his mate had done the work which he could not prevent. Porter Southwick, Guard Wilson, and Porter Sutherland, of F...

A PECULIAR CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
A PECULIAR CASE. A well dressed and apparently respec table man named Mark Binns came before the magistrates presiding at the Brunswick court on Wednesday under a charge of larceny of tools valued at £3. Accused and complainant, William Stephen, worked in the same shop, Messrs Munro and Co's, of Sturt-street, Melbourne and were good friends, and indeed, " mates." After rn extended absence Stephens returned on the 16th inst to his work, only to find that his tools were missing, and, after a fruitless search, gave information to the police. On the 18th the goods were pledged at the pawnshop of Samuel Coppell, and the assistant, Henry Marks, afterwards gave a description to the police which fitted exactly with the accused. In hight, style, complexion, and build, did this description tally with Binns, but Stephen refused to believe that his friend was the guilty party. However, Senior Constable Percival, who had the case in hand, brought Marks into the workshop, and there accused was in...

THE WAY TO BOIL POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
THE WAY TO nOO POTATOES. Select potatoes of the same size, peel, wash and pour over boiling water to cover. Cook until tender, but not so they will fall in pieces, drain off every particle of water, stand on the back of the stove, drawing the lid half an inch to one side to allow of the escape of steam. In a minute replace the lid, hold tightly in place and invert the saucepan once or twice. Again return to the fire, removing the lid as before, replace, invert again and turn into the dish in which they are served. This will give mealy potatoes, it there be any mealiness in them.
Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
Potatoes. The humblest vegetable that comes to tie table is probably the potato, and it is the one we could least niford to banish. Being such a constant attendant at our tables, it must appear dressed in a variety of ways if it is to continue to please us. Well boiled in the brown jacket, which nature has given it, or baked in the same coat, it becomes a dish fit for an European. When the shin is removed, by seasoning it, and adding to it cream to suit the taste, just as cream is poured over strawberries, the " earth apple," in t he opinion of some, is never more dtlcicious. To the objection ntmade that this is extlavagant, the answer is tlhat more butter is generally used on potatoes cooked in this way than is in the cream that is used instead, and the work of making the butter is saved. Mashed potatoes to be the best of their kind should be drained well when dcone, mashed perfectly, seasoned with salt andt cream, and beaten vigorously, as if they were the whites of e.gs, being wh...

Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891
Subjects for Thought. IT is oftIce su5ppOFed that imagination is rather a cr.ator of what is unew than a repro ducer of what is chl. a:rd has perhaps more to do with liction than with fact. Yet, al though it is a capacity unilque in itself, it also is a :licekner to all the faculties, a re producer of the past, an intensifier of the present, a painter ,f piossib'e fut::res, an in fluence ever playing upon and enhancing life itself. It gives a fuller and keener ap prehension of all that really exists; and even its mlost visionary anllt unreal forms are simply a curious grouping and combination of things very real and true.
