Seeing the futility of pursuing the flying 0 vi overseers, Geber and his gang returned to ti the tents. The storm was abating, and in a ii few minutes it had passed away as rapidly as sa it came. Among the convicts, in addition to n the names of those previonaly given, were a two notorious ruffians named Heller and n Watts. They were formerly noted burglars di on London, and, with the short-sighted policy at peculiar to the penal authorities, these com- el panions in crime were placed not only in the It same prison, but also in the same gang.u Trey had also served a year out of the twelve s that they were sentenced to, but during that w short period they had partly established a a mutinous conspiracy at Macquarie, and, hada it not been for Geber's attack on Harding,it is possible a worse tragedy might have to be recorded in the convict annals....

F[?]nniosities. A Boy's First Trousers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 July 1891
Fmnllsiositicis. A Boy's First Trousers. A man may arise to the loftiest station, And hearken to words that are spoken in praise. Be chosen to fill n high place in the nation. And favored and honored in numeres ways ; But none of the gifts which in manhood hL:'. sought him So filled up his being with wonde:[ol joy, Or bright dreams of things yet to be ever brought him, As the first pair of trousers he wore when a boy. When a boy's kilt Ekirts are no longer deited preper, The babies who wear them must then stand aside: He's grown all at once to a wondgifal whopper, And small fry must by his decision abide, He feels he is one of the lords of creation, And straightway proceedsall his rights to enjoy; There is nothing can bring such a great transformation +' As the first pair ol trousers We wore when a boy.

FACE TO FACE WITH DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 July 1891
FACE TO FACE WITH DEATH. A wonderful escape from instant death; occured to two men named John Stevens andd Henry Baker, on Wednesday afternoon. The men were working in a clay pit it the: Cornwell Brick Works, Albert-street Brunswick, repairing the tram line on which the &nbsp; clay is hauled up, when, without the least warning, an enormous body of the reef (fully 150 tons) slipped to the bottom of the pit, a distance of 15ft. carrying the men and portion of the tram track with it. The, reef broke into huge blocks, some of them 10 tons in weight and amongst these the men were jammed. The heavy timber of the track also pinned Stevens in such a manner that his head was unnovably fixed across one of the rails. A few moments before the slip &nbsp; occurred the signal had been given to haul up the loaded truck of clay, and this started at the instant the reef gave way. The stout wire rope was drag- ging the heavily-laden truck along the damaged line, and it, had reached wi...
Poetry. HEARTSEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
IXEARTSEASE. I found a laded pansy on il6 pago .Of ain old book, log lost;-one winter day. . Its velvet heart was dinm with dust and age; The beauty of its tints had'passed away. y dll my eyes gaze thrdogli amist of tears :Which dropnped on that dead flower in tender rain?

Improvers and Garters. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
Imeprovers and Garters. Mr. Justice Kekewich was occupied recently with the hearing of an action relating to patents in dress improvers. The court was strewn with various specimens of these arti. cles, and considerable amusement was canused by the spectacle of a judge and several lead. ing counsel, including the attorney-general, arguing gravely on the intricacies of the va. rious designs for dress improvers, Mr. Justice Kekewich, after looking at several designs, said: "I hope you are going to produce another of these articles, Mr. Ashton, which I do not see here. It is called the Jubilee. (Laughter.) Mr. Ashton-I have never heard of it, my lord. His Lordship It is one which, when a lady sits down, plays the National Anthem. (Great laughter.) Later on MIr. Ashbton argued that a dress improver was virtually the eame as a garter. His Lordship-Do you mean that seriously ? Mr. Ashton-Yes, I do, my lord, They are not the same in size. His Lordship-Very well, Mr. Ashton, I can see I shal...
The Misery in Knit Shirts. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
LThe Mitseryin LanitShirts. nDY . D. CONE. The' increased prealenc' during the last few years, among infants of the most careful mothers, of distressing restlessness at night, and but short naps daytime, sometimes of skin disease resembling eczema, or of serious disturbance, even in winter, like Cholera In fantum, has brought several physicians to the front with a reason which ought to be gener ally published to put a stop to the torture of the innocents. It is not sullicient to attribute all to the fact of the process of teething, which natu rally is not oerious. Though of very nervous temperaments, my mother says that she never knew any especial fleot of any of her children through this period, though we were dressed with the bare arms generally in that day. I have often felt that the nice low necks fully counterbalanced the evil of the former, howv ever. And the extremities will be less cold, even if exposed, if the body be not overheated and sweated. But the fever and the rash a...

THE HOME. A Seashore Romance. They were standing at the margin of the rest less summer sea; He was caught in Cupid's meshes and enjoyed the slavery; And a hope both sweet and tender glided each endearing wile, While the face of heaven o'er him bore the sunshine of a smile. They hnd met, 'tis true, as strangers, but a .single week before, But what of that, when Love, the sprite, re veals his honeyed store? And where's the mind so practical can play a stolid part When Love's. entrancing messenger's a-tap ping at the heart? "O?s, pardon me if I offend, since I my fate would know, .

THE INSECT CURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
THE INSECT CURE. Professor Fischer writes :-Itinay be interesting to your readers to give an idea of Litls cure.: .The discoverer ivas a cousin to the renowned Humboldt: Dr. Humboldt madel kno~rn that ;:certain stings of insects, as well as reptiles, were good ford ciring many anilments, and a prevention of certain sicknesses. The exanlthemati method of healing was discovered by the gnat,. and its merit is acknowledged by the highest authorities in Germunny. The exanthe matid method acts on some people like a miracle, as it will cure an acute sickness, such as headache, neuralgia, or sprain in ten minutes. The success of this melhod with me has been very great, and I have nmnerons testimonials to show where I have cured the most desperate cases.
Our Faults. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
Our Faults. It never occurs to that class of people who have allowed themselves to become fault. finders that they are coneidered the most dis agreeable of companions, and justly. They have no right to the position they assume towards others, for they are very far from being perfect themselves; in truth, they think so much about other' imperfections that they have very little tinme to attend to their own. They would be grieved and hurt should their friends retaliate by noticing every little eccen tricity of theirs, and, perhaps, had their friends the coursae to do so, it might open their eyes to the unpleasantness of fault-find. ing. It certainly would be a disagreeable duty, if duty it might be called, and few people would care to do it, unless of the same stamp as the fuult.fiaders, in which case it would do very little good. No one likes to have his faults noticed, although there are some people from whom we can bear reproof and not feel we are hurt. They correct us in a kindly w...

How to Live Long. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891
olow to Live Long. It islikely that a tendency to longevity is frequently inherited-that it runs in families. We know that a lack of vitality, weakness of constitution, and the tendency to certain dis eases are transmissible. Premising that nature naevr indicate. m- ph7lologicsl pro ferenoa for iSdlvluQanl, we can accoont for this principle of preservation by the fact that in all large families the weakest and diseased die out, leaving only the healthyand most hearty to propagate. With such sound stocklong life through successive generations is the result. If the truth he plainly told, death is usually but a species of suicide. Peogle seem set upon the very mode of life that will kill them quickest. Too much eating and too little sleeping, stimulants, excitement and reckless diesipstion, brains overburdened with business, hearts harrrowed with cares and responsibilities of life-sech nra some of the things that are taking people r ff. Worry and nervous excitement kill folks faster th...
