Poetry. ALONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
Ip~octrv. R-? -- r SALONE. . BY P. W., MANALLY. As I stood on the banks of a fast flowing stream, Arid gazed in its waters so clear.. My thoughts wandered back to the days of my youth, Which hlve vanished now many a year. Those dear, happy days so pleasantly passed, Nears brook in my own native land, With all "my loved friends living round the old True happiness there was at hand. But now I am old, far away from them all, IIn this'sblitry desert I stand -Without loving friends to c.:her my old age, Aid take me along by the hand. Father Time and the tids of this river flows by, The sun it sinks low iii the west, And the time's dnrwinugnigh'when my journey shall cease. And this poor aching frame sthall find rest. Oh, woman, in our ?loure of case, Uncertain, coy, and hard to please., SWhen j?nin or anguish 'ritigo the brow, A ministring angel thou. -Scor.

O'Neil I'Darragh, THE IRISH DETECTIVE ; Or, THE STRATEGY OF A BRAVE MAN. BY OLD SLEUTH. CHAPTER XII.-(CoosTcUeD,) The note was written in a bold hand, and ran as follows: 5 ' Den MAo?xn,--I do not know what you must think of me, but do not think that I have been false. I have met with an acci dent, and for certain reasons can not show myself. The rumour may have gone forth .that Ihave been murdered, and it is just as well that for the present such an impression should prevail. I have had an encounter, and I am severely wounded; and besides, I have made myself amenable to the law, so that it would not be safe for my whereabouts to be madeknown at present. Ol one thing you may rest assured-I have done nothing dishonorable, and it was on your behalf that in a mad moment I gave way to my temper. You must come to my bedside, darling, even if you are not prepared to forgive me. Ino closed you will find written directions. The party who will meet you is an humble friend in whom you can hav...
CORRESPONDENCE. A REFUTATION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 June 1891
CORRESPONDENCE. A REFUTATION. To the Editor. &nbsp; Sir,—Will you kindly afford space in &nbsp; &nbsp; your deservedly popular paper, to make public an emphatic denial of the reports to the effect that my late partner, Mr. Thorne, has bought my share of the business lately carried on under the style of Thorne and Rendell, architects, etc., and that he will continue to carry on the business at his office, etc., as has also been advertised in the local papers— such statements are misleading, besides being incorrect. The true facts of the case are as follows:--Owing to certain &nbsp; circumstances, I insisted on the partner- ship being dissolved. On such settlement a division of the assets was mutually arranged, and it was agreed that each should practice his profession sep- arately. I am reluctantly compelled to deny the reports publicly, but it is obvious to all that if such reports were allowed to circulate unrefuted by me, they would put me (and have...

Poetry. THE MAID I LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
THE MAID I LOVE.': • O ± A"LTo. ,tnE. I love a maid whose eyes are blue, Who never walks but runs, Whose voice is shrilly clear, and who Is very fond of hbuns. You'll not be shocked if you behold Her seated on my knee The maid I love is six years old, And I am thirty-three I She thinks I'm very old, I know, She treats me like her slave, She laughs in mockery when 1 show Her how she should behave. Sheo pulls my whiskers when 1 scold, And dances round in glee But then she's only six years old, And I am thirty-three I I fear she's rather fickle too, Shi's many other flrmes- She makes them tell her tales untrue, And play at noisy games. In search of crumbs, like robin bold, She hops from knee to knee Dlt then she's only six years old, And I am thirty-three ! And when my back is bent with years, And I no longer sing, And she hath known the cares and tears That life must surely bring, 1 know her loving heart will hold A tender thought of me, In days when she was six years old, And I was t...

Beecher's Wisdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
. )leecl'he,'s WJisdtom. Every farm should own a good farmer. A man never has good luck who has a bad wife. The masses against the classes, the world over. A man who does not love praise is not a full man. A man must ask leave of his stomach to be a happy man. It takes longer for man to find out man than any other creature that is made. Flowers are the sweetest things that God ever made and forgot to put a soul into. A man without self-restraint is like a barrel without hoops and tumbles to pieces. That cannot be a healthy condition in which few prosper and the great mass are drudges. Whoever makes home seem to the young dearer and more happy is a public bene factor. The greatest event in hen's life is made up of an egg anda cackle. liBut eagles never cackle. A lproud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks that he gets as much as he deserves. Gambling with cards, or dice, or stocks is all one thing. It is getting money without giving an equivalent for it. Commenities are ...

Poetry. ALONE AMONG THE SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
loetrp. ALONE AMONG THE SHADOWS. BY FRANOIS S. SMITH. I'm alone among the shadows, And l'm waiting for the light To chase away the visions Of the dreary, weary night. Like a sightlesa ehild deserted My uncertain way 1 grope I'm alone among the shadows, But my soul is full of hope. I'm alone among the shadows; But my doubts and fears are past, For I feel the sweet assurance That lichs will come at last. A ray of hope's bright beacon Comes through thegloom to me I'm alone among the shadows, But my heart is light and free. I'm alone among the shadows; But I hear a sweet voice say, SYou would not prize the daylight If it were alsays day.' And so I'll strive in earnest To keep from error free, And lie who strengtheneth the weak Will surely come to me. T are is a pleasure in the pathless woods, Toere is a rapture on the lonely shore, T -re is society where none intrudes Iiy the deep sea-and mueio in its roar. -Brno.
Necessity of Controlling the Passions. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
Nccessity of Iontrolling the Passi ons. A proud, irritable, discontented and quar releome person can never be happy. ie has thrown a tempestuous atmosphere around himself, and must forever move in the region of storms. 11e has employed sure means to embitter life, whatever may be his external circumstances. le has been the architect of his temper, and misery must be the result of hie labor. liut a person who has formed his temper and disposition of mind after a right model, who is humble, meek, cheerful and con tented, can commonly find a convenient shelter when overtaken by the storms of life. It should, therefore, be our early lemson to osulject the passions, appetites and desires to the control and guidance of reason. The first are the gales to impel us in the voyago of life, but the loat ought still to sit at the helm and direct our coursec. The stream, when it slowly dercends with a hoarse murmur from the mountains, and ripples through the plain, adorns and on riches the scene:...

A Scoldillg HIusba;nd Cnrcd. A woman, whom her husband used fre. quently to scold, went to a cunning man to enquiro how she might cure him of his bar barity. The sagacious soothsayer heard her comnplaint; and, after pronouncing some hard words, and using various gestiolations, while be filled a phial with colored liquid, desired her, whenever her husband was in a passion, to take a mouthful of the lipuor and keep it in her mouth for five minutes.
