COBURG INDUSTRIES. BROWNING AND MOUNTAIN'S HOSIERY FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891
COBURG INDUSTRIES. BROWNING AND MOUNTAIN'S iMOSIERY FACTORY. About the first question the visitor to Cokurg asks as he walks alnug Sydney road is, " What large structure is that?" He doesn't mean the Stockade, be is re ferring to Bates' Buildings, in the chief business part of the street. He is en lightened to the fact that a few years ago the extensive premises were built fora skating rink, but of late it have been used for ordinary business purposes Even many Coburg residents are un aware that the extensive floor formerly given up to skating is now, and has been for some time, used as a hosiery manufactory, which is one of tne most promising industries of Coburg.

A GOOD EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891
A GOOD EXAMPLE., TuE Brunswick Council have adopted. a policy apparently which other m:ni cipalr bodies would do well t~ follow At the last meeting of the Public Works Committee tenders amounting to several thousands of pounds sterling were accepted for various works in the town. This will give employment to a number of men, and as ratepayers and residents will have the preference, it follows that the local body are doing their best to mitigate the hardship which a section of the laboring class usually suffer in winter. If other municipal bodies would act similarly, there would be: very little heard of the unemployed m: : ovement. Those Gadgrinds who value .L.S.D. more than human flesh and blood, will probably raise a cry that the coencil should not let work during the winter months, because it probably costs a trifle more than in summer, and in a few exceptional cases might not be as well executed. Whilstjudicious economy in the management of municipal finances is always a virtue, ...

Preparing Food for the Sick.: Many an anxious watcher at the bedside of the sick feels the nearssity for a ruitable and nonrishingdiet to help tide the sufferer over the period of acute disease and also the season of prostration which in euro to follow. Still the usual confersion is :. 'I Ehould be so glad to provide anything and everything the patient may need if I only knew how; but I have had no experience and really do not know what to cook for an invalid nor how to cook it." Thereie no rearon why any woman should be unable to prepare succesafully dishes suited to the needs of the sick. Physicians often deptend almost wholly upon the nourish ment provided, because in nmany low grade forms of disease there is rier indication for suitable nourishment than for medication.

Poetry. MARRIED FOR GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891
MARRIED FOR GOLD. BY MIALFY BAINBRIDGE CRIST. Sh'ake out the billowy silk, Unfold the dainty lace, l'lce buds upon the gold of her hair, Just over her flower-like -fae. Fasten those gems on her arms, And these in her shell-like ears, Bat heed not the mist o'erher eyes, Which is gemming their blue with tears, Trail the gauzy bridal veil Till it covers her tear-wet eyes, l3u forget her proud mouth's quiver And her passion of stilled sighs. From out of the star-lit past, Into the gleaming now, From the dull ruse of by-gone years, Comes a face-and a broken vow'. But love and a handsome face Arejust a dream of the past, While money, and title, and land, Are the things that count-and that last. Then bring forth the gray-haired groom, So wrinkled and eo old, And forget that the tearful bride fIas bartered herself for gold. Ye', bring forth the gray-haired groom, And forget the sweet, dead past, For money, and title, and land, Are the things that give one caste.
