ONE BY ONE. One by one, old friends ar loeavifing Those we fondly called our own, Now to other ties are cleaving, Leaving us unchanged, alone. One by one, each cherished sister Roaches nobler womanhood. One by one, old friends have missed her From the place where once sho stood. One by one, some artful lover, With his gentle wiles will come, Bright'ning all around, above her, Wins her from her childhood's homo.

INDEIt GAIR TEN. (F?^?IY OIIUaLD,) Among the serious problems that in. torost parents Is that of the best moans of training children between thq agos of four and seven years. It Is one of the most important periods of lifo wwhn the child is brought into contact with the otroumastancoe, oxtraneous from home , influences, ,which give inclination to the growing character. Parents have' long experienced the want of a system r of training or education by means of which these years of the child's life might be made' profitable as well as pleasant, and ,'turned to advantage in d forwarding propier mental and physical r development. In this country very Slittle has i?een accomplished towards 'supplying this want, and consequently children of this age become a most per plexing care to' their' parents, or are temporarily abanidoned by them to.their own devices.

BORROWED PLUMES. (FIELD.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 May 1876

BORROWED .PLUMES. (FIELD.) It' is not many months'since that distinguished philanthropist, Lady Burdett-Coutts, drew attention to the enormous annual destruction of the gorgeously plumaged tropical birds, especially humming-birds, that takes place inorder-to satisfy the m6ieiontary caprice of the. great goddess Fashion, whose edicts most civilized women feel compelled to obey. The eloquent ap peal uttered by her appears as yet to have been wholly unavailing to stay the wholesale slaughter' of these inno cent and beautiful members of the feathered creation, if we may judge from the letter of that eminent ornitho logist, Professor Newton, who, in a recent letter to the Times, gives some Startling extracts firom a datalogue of a sale' by auction of birds' feathers which Was held last month. Mr. Newton has boon at some pains to estimate the probable number of birds that must have been killed in order to make up the various weights of the bundles of feathers as given in the catalogue, an...

INFLUENCE OF VEGETATION ON HEALTH. (GARDENER'S MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 May 1876

INFLUENOE OF VEGE TA TION ON HEALTH. (GAorENER's MAGAZINt.) " Our instinct leads us to delight in flowers. Their beauty and perfume have irresistible attractions for us. We have little dreamt that we were thus led to surround ourselves with objects which most powerfully conduce to health. No doubt there are celtain members of the vegetable kingdom which are exceedingly deleterious ; for, not to speak of the much drendedr upas, the West Indian manchineel, and some species of the American rhus, there arn somee of our conmimon sweet-sc?:ntdl flowers, such a? the mezereon, which have very injurious properties. But recent investigation has proved that those adornments of our gardent , for the presence of which we so crave, are, as a rule, endowed with lhenlth-preecrv ing' qualities. Oxygen, 'when highly electrified and so rendered especially vitalising, has in' recent times been distinguished by the name of ozone. This is one of the chief elements of a healthy atmosphero.

SATURDAY, MAY, 13, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 May 1876

SATURDAY,'MAY, 138, 1876. THE case of THOMAs TRUDGCEON who was charged before the Collingwood bench . with discharging firearms in a ptqblic place is well calculated to bring our courts of justice into disrepute. From the evidence which was 'elicited in the court it'appeared that the land. lord of the' Norfolk hotel had come under the displeasure of a number of larrikin, youths infesting his neighbor hood. The youths evidently determined to overawe the landlord, and some short time ago they assembled before the hotel,iwhen one ofthem discharged the coritents of a gun into the bar-room where the landlord was serving cus tomers. TRUDGEON was subsequently arrested, but in consequence of some .informality the case could not be pressed against him. Two of the witnosjses for the prosecution did not app6hr, and one who was'present denied all knowledge of the affair. In consequence, the pro secuting inspector stated he would not proceed with the case, as the evidence was insufficient. TRUDG...

(COLBurN's NEW MONTHLY MAGAzINE.) Tlie ibis is still' found in, Assinia, and on the -Blue. and White.

"However, the duties of in cubation. never extended beyond' the laying of two eggs, which were, un fortunately, broken by some mishap. This shows the aptitude displayed by the bird towards domesticity, seeing that few.wild animals will brood when confined with other Species.' There is no doubt whatever that the sacred ibis was not only held in great reverence, but preserved with every care and attention. Persons were einployed ex clusivel...
