Poetry. THE OLD HOMESTEAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

ADoctr v 13 AIRTIIU L. SALiMO1N. In thequiet shadows of twilight I stand by the garden door, And gaze on the old, old homestead, So cherished and loved of yore. But the ivy now is twining Untrained .o er window and wall; .ard no more the voice of the children in echoing through the hall. Through years of pain and sorrow, Since first I hal to part, The thought of the dear old homestead H[as lingered around my heart: The porch embowered with roses, The gables' drooping eaves, And the song of the birds at twilight Amid the orchard leaves. And the forms of those who loved me In the happy childhood's years Appear at the dusky windows Through visions dimmed by tears. I hear their voices calling From the shadowy far-away, And I stretch my arms toward them In the gloom of the twilight grey. But only the night winds answer, As I cry through the dismal air; And only the bat comes swooping Prom the.darkncss of its lair. Yet still the voice of my childhood Is calling from far away, And the face...

An Abe Lincoln Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

An, Abe Lincoln, Story. I heard a story repeated the other day as an "Abe Lincoln Story," but which is older' and must have slumbered somewhere for a good while. Certainly, it is not one that the politicians would be likely to repeat on the" stump, because it reflects on their craft. In a little group at the Parker Housee, a rather noisy young politician from the City Hall was echoing the sentiments of Henry Watter son, and defending the principle that the spoils belong to the victor. "I see no reason," said he, "why any Republican should be kept in a Federal office here in Boston while I, a Democrat, who have worked hard for the party, am left out in the cold." "That reminds me," said an elderly man, whom all the town would recognise if I were to describe him, "of an incident that I heard of early in Lincoln's Administration. There was a local politician who went on to Washington to get an office that he felt sure only awaited his application to be given to him. In a couple of week...

Averyserinns dilturbance took place orn Wednesda y mlorning at Pentridge There was a danger, indeed, of the matter terminating in a general out break, but this was averted by the decisive action taken by the governor of the gaol and the officers acting under him. As it is, one warder has been seriously injured and two convicts are under guard. In 'the forenoon, Senior Chief Warder Stewart, while making his usual inspec tion, visited the old quarry, where nearly 120 prisoners were employed quarrying and stonebreaking. Two men, named Blake and Smith, were engaged break ing spawle, and these were the principals in the outbreak. Blake, who seemed to haver been waiting his opportunity, advanced and complained of the work he was required to do, Stewart replied, " That' is' no business: of mine: You ad better "speak. to the overseer."

The Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

The Home. -3uests -It is always rathier iitartling when a guest turns fractious on the hands of her entertainors,who in all likelihood do their best to please. Such a lapse of good manners may be patiently endured; but the only pleas. ant feature of such a visit is the day of de parture. People of this sort are not agreeable anywhere; they are cut on the bias and will always be a little askew. But the person of average good-nature and intelligence can, by observing several rules, at least avoid being positively tedious, if not at all times enter taining. When expecting to be met at the station, be sure and state the day of the week as well as month, and the train on which you will arrive. Be sure to send the letter several days in advance, especially if to the country; it may save you a day of weary waiting at some out-of-the-way place. One should adjust taste, sight, smell, etc., to the different conditions of the homes she visits. It is far from pleasant to feel that our guest has...

CONVICT DAYS IN VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] No. 3. A STRANGE RAFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

CONVICT DAYS VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] ._--on--- No.. . A STRANGE RAFT, The British Government, in selecting such a place as Van Diemau's Land for a convict settlement, must have had good information regarding the suitability of that island for the purpose. It was not alonestone walls, iron chains, and armed sentries that kept the felons in servitude, but nature herself was a servant of the penal authorities. The con vict establishments at Hobart Town and Macquarie Harbor were guarded by a power mightier far than any that could spring from man. The felon, who escaped from Macquarie or Port Arthur, was simply running into the jaws of deat,-and the worst of all deaths, starvation. In that fertile land there was little or no subsistance for the runaway. The gloomy and terrible forests had first to be tamed, and, hence it is a matter of history that some of the lirst runaway convicts re sorted to cannibalism to sustain life. The dictum of the authorities...

Short Sketches. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

Short Sketches. -.44~-- Literary Self-Estimates.-ThER R eide is seldom underestimated by its possessor is proved by many noteworthy examples. Southey and Landor both appreciated iteir own literary work at its highest value. Wordsworth nourished in his breast a sub lime self-complaceney, and, in spite of adverse criticisms, wrote calmly on, " in the full as surance that his poems would be unpopular, andin the full assurance that they would be immortal. Byron was no better judge of his own poetry than he wan of other people's. His "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" he thought inferior to his " flints from Ilor ace," a feeble imitation of Pope and Johnson, which he repeatedly designed to publish, and was witheld from doing only by the solici tations of his friends, whom, to his astonish ment, he could never bring to think-of the matter as he did. "There are two things," said Dr. Johnson, "which I am confident I can do very well; one is an introduetion to any literary work, stating what it is...

The Alligator Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 27 May 1891

The Alligator Industry.-The business of catching and killing alligators gives occu pation, it is stated in a St. Louis paper, to many persons in-the South. The hide of a large alligator is worth eight to ten shillings; It is almost aday'-taek to skin a-large one. Alligator oil (which has at first a most un. pleasant smell) is-munh valued as a remedy for rheumatism, Fishermen sometimes eat portions of the animal's body. The flesh of the tail, when cooked, is said to be like veal in look and like pork in taste. Col. Williams, sometime ago, made a con tract with a fisherman to stock a hole at Spanish Fort, known as the alligator pond, for him, and in a fortnight he had it stocked with thirty alligators, ranging from six inches to seven or eight feet. The mode of capture, in which the men showed no fear, was as follows: Some of the young are caught out from where the old one is lying, and a strong noose is placed so that she must thrust her head in it on emerging. When all is ready, the...
