A Fatal Joke. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

A Fatal Joke. ---*~ or FRANCIS A. DOIVAGOE. Three of the " beet fellows in the world" were seated in front of the Cafe Cardinal, in Paris toward the close of November, some years ago, when Garibaldi had attained the zenith of his fame. They were well to do. One was a grocer, another a hosier, and the third a small bookseller, Each of them was married and had a family. It was evening. A fog that equalled a London fog in density and impenetrability was rolling down the boulevard, dimming the street and carriage la:np, ant making objects ten feet ell indiltinguiahable. Our three jolly fellows had a bottle of wine be fore them, and were in the beat cl spirits, joking. laughing, and telling stories. Suddenly there appeared before them two little Italian children, dressed in Iha costume of their country, one a boy of twelve, and the other a girl of eight years of age, both of them endowed -with that "fatal gift of beauty " of which Byron sneake. The little boy was a violinist; the little ...

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR COAST SIGNALS. (To The Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR COAST SIGNALS. < (To The Editor.) Sir,-Many propositions havd, been made about our coast signals. Where danger to life and destruction of property have become so great and fre quent, and no satisfactory system insti tuted to minimise or prevent such, it behoves those in charge of our coastal shipping to leave no stone unturned to introduce the latest and best appliances to mitigate the evil. Nay more, it becomes an important public duty on the part of the government to see that such is done. A lighthouse, with all the best known improvements, has but a poor chance in foggy weather oz on stormy dark nights to prevent casualities. Something is wanted that will act promptly and surely. The per petual whistle that can be placed on each rock or pass is without doubt the best means of saving life and property. The warring sound of this can be heard at all times and in all weathers for a long distance, and there is urgent need of its adoption. The government ...

CONDITION OF NICHOLSON STREET. The extensive works that are being carried out in Nicholson-street have placed that thoroughfare in an almost impassable condition.

AN IMPROVED GAS SUPPLY [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

AN IMPROVED GAS SUPPLY The Coburg council have decided to call a public meeting of residents in the local public hall on Friday evening, the 24th. inst. fi order to promote the extension of the Brunswick Gas Company's mains to Coburg. A conference has already been lheld between the local council and the directors of the company and an understanding arrived at. At, present residents in the district are very badly treated by the ýMetropolitan company. Not only is the supply of gas poor and altogether inadequate but many streets have not even a service laid in them and the primlitii?o lamp or candle have to be resorted to for light. The terms which the .Brunswick company vwant are fivourable to the ,shire and looking at the question. from any standpoint 'every encouragement should be given to the young and enterprising company. The custom which it already has in Bruns wick is suflicient to pay a 10 per cent. dividend on the outlay so that as an investment the undertaking is a sound one...

THE POWER OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

THE POWER OF THE PRESS. 'These confounded paragraphs in the newspapers are a nuisance" This was the exclamation of a well-known Bruns   wick resident a few days ago. It seems that a par. appeared in a recent 'issue of this paper in reference to the bad con dition of the chairs in the Brunswick town hall, and the same day Mr Heeps, the caretaker was besieged with furniture tradesmen, who wanted to " do a line in chairs." Heeps is a man who doesn't lose his temper unless a brick is thrown at him or a similar forcible mode of argument adopted, and he   stood the worry of the importunate furniture dealers for something like a   day and a half. But there is a limit to all things: (even to the endurance of a town hall chair). and on the afternoon of the second day his calmness began to forsake him. He got through the weary day however, and sought refuge, in sleep, but some time after midnight he was roused from his slumbers by a noise at the window. ...

How to Amuse Little Boys. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

IJow to A .? uses L.ttle boys. What shall our little boys do in the long winter evenings? asts a correspondent. Of course our little boys of nine and ten go promptly to bed when the short hand of the alock points to nine, but between this hour and tea time there is a broad unoccupied space which must be filled. Boys need to be taught to use the needle, but it is very diff cult now to induce them to take one in hand. It may be accomplished once in a while by telling how the soldiers used to mend their etcckiogs, and how the young ladies at homo used to send them needlebooke and thread (it would be interesting to know just how many of those pretty articles were ever actually of any practical use.) Possibly you can impress upon the boys the truth that it really is a good thing to be able to use a needle, and if yen can do this set them mak ing little bags to keep marbles in. Another occupation is the endless one of making scrap-books-books of pictures as well as stories and anecdotes. ...

BRUNSWICK V. AUSTRAL. BRUNSWICK WINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

BRUNSWICK V. AUSTRAL. BRUNSWICK WINS. Shortly after two o'clock on Saturday last the Sydney-road, in the vicinity of the town hall, presented a lively appearance as the Brunswick footballers and their supporters began to assemble. Drags were in attendance to convey them to Albert Park, where they tried conclusions with the Austral. This is the second time these clubs have met this season, the first being on the Brunswick recreation reserve, when the locals won by five goals to one. As tile Austral have improved wonderfully since last they met, the present contest was expected to be very close. The day was anything but a good one for football, a strong wind blowing towards the s.nth, and after half time rain began to fall, which made it most miserable for both players and spec tators. Mr. Lucas acted as central ompire, and Brumley captained the visitors. About half-past three the umpire set the ball in motion, and it was at once seen that Brunswick kicked witl the wind. -Some here an...

Mean Wills. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

MIean W'lls. Husbands who profess to love their wives intensely, sometimes play them a very mean trick when about to depart for that better land where there is "neither marrying nor giving in marriage." One might suppose that a tender spo'se, on the eve of being Idivorced by death from the partner of his joys and sorrows, would be governed in the disposition of his worldly goods by an earnest desire to render her earthly future a happy one. If he has a fortune to bequeath to her, why should he make a dog-in-the-manger will, providing that she shall enjoy it only during widowhood? What right has he to condemn her to a life of loneliness, under penalty of pauperism, in ease she shall marry again ? ousbands about to shuffle off this mortal coil, if you desire to be tenderly bornein mind by your relicts, don't deal with them after thi contemptible fashion.

Daring Trickery. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 July 1891

Daring Trickery. In ingenious racaihty the Parisan rogue excels the tricksters of all other nations. The following truthful story is cited in proof of the proposition. Not long ago the promi. nent daily papers of Paris contained the an pended announcement: " A splendid wedding will take place here toward the end of the month. M. W. Thompson, a millionaire broker, will marry Miss Helen Barber, the only daughter of the highly respected Rev. J. M. Barber of New Zealand.' About ten days after this notice appeared, a man with a white beard, and in clerical garments, introduced himself at the jewellery ,lhop of Mme. Prevost as the l:ev.Dr. Barber, and asked that an attendant be sent with a great variety of jewels to his house in Bee sand street, in order that Mr. Thompson, his future son-in-law, might choose fitting wed ding gifts for the coming bride. The old man designated some £2,000 worth of jewels as the most likely lot for his future eon-in-law's taste, and left. The next morning Mn...

Phillips, President, (in the chair), and Messrs. Clement, J.P., Thorne, Rendell, Hodgson, Poverell and F. T. Hickford, B.A., hon. see. A report was read from the Librarian which stated that there were 39 new members enrolled for the half-year, the total number on the books now being 168. The Coumittee considered that this number was small in proportion to the large population of Brunswick, and that special ellorts should be made to en large the number of subscribers. This should be an easy matter, seeing that the subscription is but 12s. per annum. The Librarian also mentioned that the number of books added to the library during the past six months was 60, and the number exehanged during the month of June, 1734. The report was adopted. A large number of additional new books were ordered to be obtained. The hen. see. reported tha...
