Josh Billings' Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 July 1891
Josh Billingys' Phlilosophy. In grate crowds o persons like grate flocks, ov birde, there iz mutch more noise end clattering then sense. There are but dredful few people who kean talk ten minnite tew yu without lugging into the convereashun their bak or telummuk akop. Sine ore the only things that i repent 07. I nevre could make ennything repenting uv bluntors. Whisky friends are the most unprofitable ones i kno ov; they are alwuz reddy tow drink with yu, but when yu are reddy tow drink with them, then they ain't dry. I look upon a pure joke with the sams venzroehun that i do upon the 10 eom. mnndmeots. Yu kant hire a man tew be honest. lHe will want hie wages raized every morning. The most successfual men I have ever known are those who are konstantly making blunders, but never seen tew kno it. I kno plenty of folks who are so kondem kontrary, that if they should fall into the river, they would insist upon floating up stream. Cne ov the most reliable prophets i know ov itz an old h...

Hints to Swimmers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 July 1891
Hints to Swimmers.-" Whenthe bath. ing season arrives," remarked a natatorium professor tho other day, " we'll hear of the usual miximum of drowning cases, and among them, as usual, a fair share of expert swimmers. The chief reason why good swimmers are so often drowned when they are accidentally thrown into the water is because the shock causes them to looso their presence of mind. The loss of presence of mind leads to paralysis of the body, orto such wild exertions as accelerate drowning, instead of contributing to preservation. The ability to behave wisely in case of sudden accidents can only be acquired by experience, just as everything else has to be acquired. The theory of tihe matter can be taught in swimming schools, but the practice must be acquired by expcrience. Hence, in sonme of the European swimrming schools, says the Icbrewu fournal, the pupils are taken out boat riding and purposely upset, as though tihe upsetting were accidental. They are also suddenly pushed overbo...

Saturday last, although it was very wet in the moruning, clearcd up, as is usually tihe case, for ile footballers in the afternoon, and despite the ground being rather sloppy, a very pleasant afternoon was spent watching and play ing the Anustralian national game.
