Josh Billings' Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
Josh Billings' Philosophy. It iz a grate deal eerier tow look upon thoze who are below us, with pitty, than tew look upon thoze who are abov us, without envy. Good common sense iz as helthy az onions. We often e:e thoze who are gocd, simply bekanuo they hain't got eense enuif tow be bad, and thoze who are bad just kekauze they hkin't got sense enuff tew be good. The man who don't know himsenf iz a poor judge ov the other phellow. Envy iz autch a constant companyun, that if we find no one abuy us to envy, we will envy thoze below ns. Whoever iz a sedate old man at twenty, will be apt'tew be a frivilous young one at sixty. Wit, without sense, iz like a razor with out a handle. Thare iz a servitude in life so oppressive as tow be obliged tew flatter thoze whom we don't respekt enuff to praze. We mingle in society, not so mulch tow meet others az to eskapc ourselfl. The truly innosent am those who not ooly aregouiltless themel,but wbo tbik otbers gm. •I

It is Better to Live. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
It is'Bettel' to Li'c'A. -..----.? Q.....--."' I have sometimes felt that the burden Of life was too heavy to bear; And have longed to lie down at the noon tide And rest and forget all my care; But over my heart comes a moesage, lRepeated again and again " it is bettr to live and to sulffer Than to die to be rid of the pain." There is rest in the darkness of dying, And an end to the weary despair: The grave holds cure peace and calm Filence, ?o sorrow nor pain can be thereo; But perhaps, in the struggle of living, Is a soul that ,has need of my care Some heart may be hearing a burden That my hand may lighten or share.

The Faithful Dog of Helvellyn. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
The F?itiful Dog of Holvellyn. A monument has just been erected on Helvellyn (a mountain of Cumberland, Eng land, 3 300 feet high) to the memory of Charles Gough, who, in the year 1S03, was killed by falling from the high crags on the ridge that joins Striding Edge to the'sum mit; and the faithful dog who tor three months watched over her master's remains. Sir Walter Scott describes the event in thie poem "I climbed the dark brow of the mighty Helvellyn," and Wordsworth records it in his lines on " Fidelity." The young man was returning to Wyth burn, where he lodged, from a fishing ex. cursion in Patterbale. The accident was probably caused by a false step, during a blinding hailstorm or a dense fog that day. It happened on April 1S, and on July 20 his hones were found. still watched by thestarv ing dog, a little yellow, rough haired female terrier. She had given birth to puppies, which were found dead by the side of the corpse. It is believed, though unable to secure enough food fo...
Scent in Horses. Fine and Deep Emotions Dependent on the Sense of Smell. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
Scent in Horses. Fine and Deep Emotions Dependent on the Sense of Smell. The finest and deepest emotions of a dog seem to be dependent on his senre of smell. Not only does he carry: on his business of hunting and guarding through its aid, but his devotion to his master and his recogni tion of lesser friends depend largely upon his nose. According to ilorse-and Stable, another among the other friends of man is keen and delicate of ecent. The horse will leave musty hay untouched in his bis, no matter how hungry he may be. However great his thirst, he will not dsink of water objectionable to his questioning sniffs, nor from a bucket made n thbs least degree offensive. His intelligent nostril will widen, quiver and query over the daintiest of bits otTered by the fairest of hands. A mare is never satisfied, either by sight or whinny, that a colt is really her own until she has certified the fact by means of her nose. Blind horses will, as a rule, gallop wildly about a pasture without str...

Fischer occupied the chair, and there was a fair atten dance. In his.opening remarks Mr. Fischer wished the band every success, and regretted that the weather was un favorable for the concert.

Longevity. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 June 1891
Longcivity. Nine hundred and ninety persons in a thousand would say thata baby in the cradle would be likely to live longer than a man of 65, but statistics prove indisputably that 500 in every 1000 infants diebefore the age of 5 years is recorded, while out of 1000 healthy men aged G5 more than 500 of them will be alive in five, aye in ten years, or even a longer time. So it will be seen that a man of 65 may be considered younger than an infant as far as his chances of future life are concerned. When are we old'? Prof. Faraday holds that the duration of life in man and animal is five times the period of growth; man's growth requires twenty years ; he should, therefore, under ordinary circumstances, live to be 100; infancy extending to'the 20th year; youth to the 50th. when the tissues. become firm; virility to 75, andold age from 75 to 100. Dr. Farr favors 100 years for the tenure of life,but makes these divisions: Boyhood, 10 to 15; youth. 15 'to 25 ; manhood, 25 to 55 ; maturity,...

CONVICT DAYS I VAN DIEMAN'S LAND. TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL 55HlTS RESERV .l No..6. THE GCSCOT OF DEADflA 5S ISLE. It has been said that Brilish history is enshrined in Westminster Abbey and Saint Paula. The great men, who sleep beneath their marble tablets in these vener ble structures, are intellectual stepping stones, which lead the student along the road of knowledge. A burial ground, under any circumstances -whether in the twilig'lt gloom of GJthio architecture, or under rse tropical sun in il limitable deserts-must always possess a history more or less important. What strange and pathetically true stories e.ould be written of almost any cemetery, but there are some that stand out, Mont Blanc-like, above the common-place God's Acres in the interest which attaches to them. One of such is Deadman's Isle-the cemetery of Port Arthur prison. Thesmall isle is appropriately named, and the beauty of the epot could not be surpassed anywhere in the world. It floats like an oasis in Port Arth...
