As we came around on the starboard side of the vessel some one halloed, " Who comes there? Back water quick or I will shoot." I looked up, but saw no one. \Vithme were two ladies and gentlemen, guests forn Tubbs' Hotel. They heard the voice, but, like myself, were unable to see any one.

HOW TO DRIVE. Every Boy Should Know Something About Handling Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891

HOW TO DRIVE. Every Boy Should Know Something About Handling Horses. ----*** It is the height of a boy's ambition to own ahorse. A bicycle is a ospital steed, that stands without tying, and will not "eat its head off" when not in usee; but, after all, every boy prefers something alive. Fig. 1.-cui;o sr n Tniaur. You cannot talk to a bicycle as you can to a horse, and there can be no interchange ol affiction. Of course, every boy cannot onn a horeo, or if he comes in poescEsion of one it may prove a " white elephant " on his hands for lack of space to keep him. But to those happy boys who not only have a horse, but a place to keep it, this article is addressed. Perhaps all such boys think they know how to drive, as all bbys think they know how to play football, but there are many ways of handling the reins, and only one right way. An awkward driver is not only an unpleasant sight, but he also lacks com mand of the horse. In driving, you must hold your hands as in figure 1, whether yo...

SPORTS AND PASTIMES. CRICKET METMS. JACKSON'S TROPHY. PARKVIEW V. TRUE BRITONS. The contest for Jackson's trophy, which throughout the season has been a very interesting oie, has been finally narrowed down to, the Britons and Parkview, ani the final match was com menced by these last Saturday. Both clubs have only been beaten once, and thus stand on an equal footing, so that a great deal of interest was centered in the game. The South Brunswick pitch was selected as a neutral groqnd, whilst two special umpires, Messrs. J. Goding and E. H. Warren, were secured for the occasion. There was a very fair atten dance, and the Parkview skipper (Wilson) securing the tose, elected to send in his men first. The wicket was not one of the best, bumping and shooting being the c.rder of the day Shortly after three o'clock play com menced, Anderson and Teague going to the wickets, and the first-named striking to Dominey.

Go, leave the goblet in my hand, But veil thy glances bright, Lest wine and beauty mingling here, Should wreck soul tonight. Then, dearest, to the ancient vine, In sculptured beauty rare, Bow down thy red, arched lip and qunci The wine that conquers care ; And breathe upon the glowing cup, Till thus its perfumes be Sweet as the scent of the orange groves Upon rome tropic sea. Then while the fingers idly stray In dalliance o'er the lyre, Sing to me love, some rare old song That gushed from heart of fire Song such as Grecian phalanx hymned, When freedom's field was won, And Persia's glory, with the light, Faded at Marathon. Sing till the shouts of armed men Ring bravely out once more I Sing till again the ghost-white tents Shine on the moonlit shore I Bid from their melancholy graves The buried hopes to start, I knew e...

Jock o' the Mill. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 April 1891

Jock o' the Mill. As every one knows, it was not so many centuries ago that the borderland between England and Scotland was considered fair hunting-ground for those who lived within reasonable distance of the Tweed. It was claimed by various lords who probably had small right to it, but who tried to enforce their rights with little'regard to the justice of their claims. After Chevy Chase the ill.feeling between the border clans became still more bitter, aid involved the unhappy people who lived -in the neighborhood in still greater misery than be. fore. The raids of ihe English were avenged by the Scots, and vice ,-erra, and numberless petty encounters took place of which neither I:ietory nor ballad takes any note. The Baron of Melton was one of the chief raiders. In fact, in spite of his title, he was no better than a common robber. His mis. deeds were connived at by the English Govern. ment because he was useful in checking the advance of the Soots, of whose inroads into England t...
