The writer, when in the Russian army, had made the acquaintance of this gentleman, and enjoyed with a few other American officers the hospitality of the Muscovite on the memorial trip to view the architectural splendor of ancient I'Pganiem. The com pany consisted of four Russians, two of theom ladies, five Englishmen, and four ladies of the same nationality, a Hindoo professor of the native college, and five Americans.

Cooling of the Body by Spray. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 September 1890

Cooling of the Body by Spray. Dr. -8. Placzek, following up some laboratory experiments by Preyer and ]Flashear, on the fleet of spraying a con siderable part of the body surface of animals with cold water, has apn'ird the spray for the purpose of reducing , . temperatures in human beings.

For, though he was a handsome fellow — too handsome for a man no worthier than he —I should no more have pre- sumed to have associated him in my thoughts with Miss Dudleigh than if he had been a worker in her fields.

Living. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 September 1890

Living. "How to make lives worthy the living!" The question haunts us every day; It colors the first blush of sunrise, It deepens the twilight's last ray. There is nothing that brings us a drearier pain Than the thought, "We have lived, we are   living in vain." We need, each and all, to be needed, To feel we have something to give Toward soothing the moan of earth's hunger And we know that then only we live When we feed one another as we have been fed From the hand that gives body and spirit their bread. Our lives, they are well worth the living, When we lose our small selves in the whole, And feel the strong surges of being Throb through as, one heart and one soul. Eternity bears up each honest endeavor; The life lost for love is life saved, and forever. —LUCY LARCOM.

CHINESE GARDENS. AND CHINESE VEGETABLES. HOW THEY ARE RAISED. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 September 1890

CHINESE GARDENS. AND CHINESE VGETABLES. HOW THEY ARE RAISED.   At the Coburg court on Tuesday a Chinese gardner named Ah Sing,   following his avocation at Newlands, was prosecuted by Inspector Daly for allowing nightsoil to be deposited on his premises. Mr. Neave appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Wasley, instructed by Mr. Lyons, for the defence. Evidence was given by Constable Daly, inspector of the shire, that on the morning of the 25th ult he visited de-   fendent's garden at Newlands, and found two heaps of manure about 150 yards from the defendant's house. On examining these heaps he found a quality of nightsoil mixed with the stable manure. From one of these heaps a quality of liquid matter ran in a drain towards the garden, and in the direction of the creek. No permit had been granted defendant, and the night-   soil was a decided nuisance. Dr. C. P. W. Dyring, health officer   of the shire, gave similar evi...

MRS. MACGRUDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 September 1890

MRS. MACGRUDER. By Grosvenor Bunster. The corpse of the late Mr. John Macgruder was discovered floating lazily down the   pellucid Yarra some four years ago. "Sat   upon" by the city coroner and a jury of good   men and true, a verdict of "found drowned"   was recorded. As Mr. Macgruder in life had been a man of wealth, and, therefore, of in- fluence, the evidence of several persons ready and willing to testify that the deceased, the evening before the discovery of his remains, had been seen in a condition of abject   intoxication, was dispensed with. It is neces- sary in the cause of morality to place such particulars before the public, when they   relate to a common-place and uninfluential corpse, but in such a case as that of Mr. Macgruder the feelings and amiable pre- judices of good society have to be regarded. Thus, then, it is not generally known that Mr. Macgruder owed his untimely death to the cir...

Poetry. Always Someone Below. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890

ljoetrp. Always Someone Below. On the lowest rung of the ladder I ficrmly planted my feet, And looked up at the dim, vast distanee Tnat made my future so sweet. I climbed till my vision grew weary, I climbed till my brain was on fire, I planted cach footstep with wisdom Yet I never seemed to get higher. For this rung was glazed with indifference, i And that one was gilded with scorn, And when I grasped firmly another I found, under velvet, a thorn. Till my brain grew weary of planning, Ann my heart strength began to fail, And the flush of the morning's excitement Ere evening commenced to pale. But just when my hands were unclasping S Taeir hold on the last gained round, When my hopes, coming back fromn the future Were sinking again to the ground One who had climbed near to the summit It ached backward a helping hand; And. refreshed, encouraged and strengthened I took once again my stand. And I wish-oh. I wish-that the climbers Wuuld never forger as they go That, though weary zony se...
