A Marvel. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
A Marvel. In 1130, A. D., after nineteen years of ceaseless labor and an expenditure of about four million dollars, the Chinese government finished the wonderful porcelain tower at Nankin, which stood for nearly four and a quarter centuries, until 1856, the most mar vellous building ever erected by human hands. It was of octagonal form, two hun and sixty feetin height, with nine storier, cach having a cornice and gallery without. The name of porcelain tower was applied to this unique structure on account of the fact that the whole of thel outside work was covered with porcelain slabs of various eries and colors, but principally red, white, yellow and green. At every one of its nine stories the projecting root of thoe gallery was coverted with green tiles, each corner being provided with a bell varying in weight from three hundred to one thousand pounde. There were one hundred and fifty-two belle in all, each so nicely balanced as to rock back and forth as they were swayed by the bre...

LC 2 ' Why not?' demanded Algy, with a glance full of affection at the old nobleman, whose greatest pleasure he knew it was to see him enjoy himself, * you have the money.' * And 1 suppose you mean to imply that you have the taste. ' And so le has, and nobody is better aware of it than you: said Lady Gladys. ' What we wanu to know is, if we really are going to have theatri cals. Are we, your grace?'

CONVICT DAYS IN VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] No. 5. A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
CONVICT. DAYS VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL IuGHTS aEtSELYED.J No. 5. A STRANGE STOT,. In the first incident described in these Chronicles, "The Wreck of the Panther." it was mentioned that when Chief-officer Espinaesc went into the hold of the fast sinking ship to rescue any probable survivors, he was about returning on deck when he saw a hand thrust out of the dark water, and seizing it he found that it was that of a young womanowho, with the otherhand, had tight hold of a young man. Both were taken out and placed in the boat, and after great dilliculty animation was restored in both the nearly drowned persons. The man was a convict, but who the woman was no one could tell. She was not a transportee, neither was she a free pas senger, and the only conclusion that could be arrived at was that she was a stowaway, but how she got on board and concealed her self so long was a mystery. The sudden sinking of the ship revealed one of the strangest stories of woran's de votion ...
Poetry. TO HATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
ll oetrp. TO ,HATE. Br FRANCIS S. SMITH. Thou baleful, black-browed, murderous thing Thou bane to human bliss I Thou vampire fiend of sombre wing, Whose loathsome, lep'rous kiss Blisters the lips it meets and turns Life's sweets to biterest gall, And, like a hungry tire, burns In souls that own thy thrall. Thank God, I ne'er have known thee yet, Vile monster that thou art I Thou ne'er hast had, and ne'er can get, A lodgement in my heart. Though I were doomed to feel the sting Of enmity's foul blow, I'd seek no shelter 'reath thy wing, Thou minister of woe. I can afford to pity thee, And all whose guide thou art; For no poor wretch from pain is free While thou dost rule his heart. I'd rather suffer from thy spite Than own thee as my friend; For Love, thy master, will delight When thou hast reached thine end. And he, the enchanter of the scene. Who gave thee hope, then brought thee blight Gave to thy view yon world of light, And sudden dropped a veil between.

Jews in Portugal. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
Jews in Portnugal. The formalities attending the settlement of the estate of the late King of Portugal call to mind many of the interesting tales that have come down to us of political intrigue in the little kingdom. In Portugal, as else where, the Jews were for many years the victims of grevious persecution, and at one time a decree of banishmentwaspromulgated against both Jews and converted Jews. in spite, however, of all persecution, the Jews continued to increase in number, to thrive in trade, and to achieve a certain social dis tinction. After a whilellebrew blood crept into high families, and by means of certain inter-marriages now and again royalty itself acquired a strain of that eame blood. So notorious became the advancement of the Jews that it was said of Portugal that while one-half the nation looked for the coming of Dom Sebastian the other half looked for the coming of the Messiah. Dom Joseph insisted, in his time, that every Jew in Portugal, and every one tainted with...
Catherine's Cruelty. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
Catherine's Cruelty. -4~-- The Veritzins were nobles of enormous wealth and power. Paul held a high office in court. One night, glittering with jewels and orders, the young prince, who was one of the handomeest men in Russia, danced in a quadrille opposite the em prees. As she passed him in the dance she fancied that his eyes scanned her gross figure with covert amusement. After the quadrille she beckoned to him, and with a smile, handed him her tiny ivory tablets, containing seven pages, one for each dayin the week. On the first was written: "The imperial ballroom, St. Petersl burg." On the last: "The mines, Siberia." He read it slowly; his face grew gray as that of a corpse; he bowed low, kissed her hand, and withdrew, "taking," says the old chronicle, " his wife, the beautiful Princess of Novgorod, with him."ho was heard to say as he left the ball-room: "My minutes are numbered; let us not loPn one." Flight or resistance was impossible. The hold of Catherine on her victim was ine...

Geiceral Gathlerinus. ----+ .-- Ix a field not far from Austerlitz, at a depth of about eight feet, the skeleton of a tall, powerful man has been discovered, lying with the skull towards the west. The Vienna correspondent of the Daily News states that under the left arm was found a sword almost a yard long, with signs of having had the hilt covered with wood, In the neighborhood were found bones of animals, flint stones, and fragements of earthenware, a naturalist who has seen the skeleton thinks it has lain in the earth for over a thousand years. It will be removed from its present position to a museom. Fnou a Parliamentry return it appears that the city of Glasgow is singularly favored with regard to the number of places licensed for the sale of drink-the number being three for every thousand of the population. The annual rental of the licensed premises reaches the enormous total of £161,8s1 14s., and as the population of Glasgow numbers 557,600, it follows that every man, woman, ...

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
rlying Glassware.--;lass is frequently said by servants to " fly of itself." It never Ilies from the thin to the thick part, but the reverse invariably. We once knew a servant girl who said a richly cut sugar bowl of a Ilanged shape had flown, and sioe found the pieces inside it, so that by her experience glass not only flies but jumps. Sudden change of temperature causes flyage. For example, glass kept in a cold frosty pantry will fly when brought into a hot room, so a glass from a warm place will fly when ice is put into it. Thick ice plates in glass should never be used, nor should ice plates be touched by a warm hand when in ase. It is best to put them upon a china plate. China dishes, or even the common earthen ware, should never be put into the oven or upon the lhot plate. Wartm water, not hot, will make them sulticiently heated for use. Glass dishes should never have hot things placed upon tilem; flyage is greatly pre vented if tile dishes be warmed gradually. Itn frosty weat...
Spanish Beauties. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
Spanish llBeautics. I It is commonly thought that Spani""' women are dark beauties, and that t: know nothing and do nothing beyond g-.... to church and giving themselves to flirtatioun. We have here as many mistalke as therc are propositions. In the first place, all the women in Spain are not brunettes, in spite of what Lard Byron may have said to ac credit the theory. As a rule the reverse holds good. They are usually fair, with blue eyes, in Cadiz, while oven the Barque women often have auburn or red hlir. For a year. or even two year., the little girl is handed over to her ama, or wet nurse, usually a low, vulg ir peasant woman, who teaches her to speak loudly, to cry for every thing, and spoils her moren completely than even her own mother might have done. These bad habits, so early inculcated, never fall to cling to her through lifo. When at last the nurse is dismissed the child does just what she likes. She lines at table and eats of every dish. lier only playmates are the ser...
