Poetry. THE EMPTY NEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

ll oetrp. THE EMPTY NEST. BTY C. E. S3TLLES. There's an empty nest in the maple trco, DLsoolate and alone, Sadly it rooks on the leafless bough, All of its inmates flown.. LBroken and torn are the fragile walls, Where wandering snow-fl'kes fall; Softly they cover the tiny wreck, Under an ermine pall. Where are the couple in suits of brown Who fashioned that home un there ? While a happy song in joyous tune lRng cut on the sweet spring air. Da they rear their broad in another land, 'Neath sunnier el:y than ours. Where never the storm king's blighting breath Can wither their fragrant bowers? Do they ever think of their summer home, Where they carolled gay and free? Is there never a throb of fond regret For the nest in the maple tree I Thus, one by one, we are drifting away From the homes that once we knew; And time and epace will sever for aye The hearts so leal and true. But 'tip sweet to think of the meeting placer In the house not made with hands, And to rest assured 'mid the wreck...

Good Walkers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

Good Walkuers. We have known' nomerous road-bred bhorsea that would walk four and a half to five miles an hour without urging, and many, in fact, moot well-bred road horses, could be taught to cover greater distances than this in the same time if it were not for the pernicious custom (as we think) of put ting the colts to the tret as soon as they are in the harness and before they are really bridle-wise. Every farmer's boy knows that he can do a better job of work-plowing. har rowing, or working corn with a fast walking team, which makes the dirt fly, than with a slow one. The ooving on a farm when the horses walk three miles an hour, or even when they can walk two miles and a half, is twenty per cent, or, in other words, the fast team can rest a whole day in a week and do as much as the slow team-do it better. When work is reessingcr weather un certain, the fast team is a treasure. While every effort has been made to increase the speed of the trotter, the draft horse men have been ...

A curious statement comes from Arcansas concerning a gang of horse thieves, iho had for-their chief aeeietant a young woman-a bleached blonde-with the nickname of Sor rel Sue. She was given this name because I she always appeared in public riding a sorrel | horse. Her excellent horsewomanEhip and her dashing manner brought her many admirers. The shooting afair which forces her into notice was an ordinary case of plain jealousy. Two of her admirers, both members of the gang, fought for her favor. One was killed, and the survivor was severely wounded. A surgeon wase ent for. He mistook the direction and walked into the cabin occupied by "Sorrel Sue." Before he could be hustled out, he saw certain things which aroused his suspicions.

Blisteri[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

fltisferIr g. It is a common custom with most vetori. narisns to purge the hor-e before they blister its legs. The intention is to remove any lurking irritahblity out of the animal's system, but Ourh irritn.lii:y will most pro bably be provoked by their coarse and potent blistering agents; therefore, a purgative, by increawneg tlhedebility,is only likely to render the quadruped mo-e sensitire to outward impressions. A nice "freshener" is embodied, to the eye of reason, in a drastic purgative, followed by an active irritant applied to a most sensitive part of the body I Whenever a blister is adopted, rather too little than too much oil should be used. Enough to permeate the hair and reach the skin is im perative; but the action rather depends on the amount of friction which accompanies the agent than cn the quantity of the vesi. eatory that may be employed. The friction should be regulated by the condition of the surface on which the oil has to act, and all adjscent tender places, as...

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. The nominations for the Coburg Shiro, which closed on Thursday after noon, show that there will be two contest for seats at the council table in that district. Cr. P. Kelly enjoys a walk over in the west riding, and the auditor (Mr. D. Harding) is also unopposed. Both Crs. Voice and Benson will have to fight for a retention of their seats. The retiring member for the north riding will :have as his opponent M r. John McKay, whilst a resident of Moreland Grove, Mr. George Mackie Munro, a son of the. Premier, wil contest the honor of a seat at the council table with Mr. H. country, and it is scarcely likely that he will be back in time for, the day of polling, so that his friends will have to look after his interest. There are no " burning" q?uestions in the district on which to take. sides, and the most important matter. of the future is the proposed loan of £20,000 which the shire sadly needs.

"THE'JUNIOR MEMBER OF THE GREEN FAMILY." "Yis Sur, I'm the junior member of the Greoe fanmily," was' the answor a witness gave at the Coblrg Court on Tuesday to a questioning .lawyer in a case where a warder in the stockade was charged with assault. Starting ;off like this, sometlhing good was expected, and the spectators were not disappointed. Green junior, who is also a warder in the stockade, proved to be a 'born humorist. The expression on his face alone was sufficient to provoke a simmer of mirth, and his quaint answers. given mn-a rich and unctiois. brogue ,woiil l have evoked roars of 8 laughter outside, a court. It appeared that on the nig':t of the assault there was. a social gather ng at Rolland's Hotel, to make a presentation to a retiring officer of the stockade, and it was admitted, that matters were "lively," which as Green junior said, " was just what a social should be." .Green was called for the defence, and when asked what he` knew about- the case he replied , Well...

Cr. Rolland seconded the motion. Cr. Voice in response thanked his brother mem bers for their good wishes. He had tried to do his duties to the ratepayers, and had never been negligent in attendance. 1His vote had always been given without fear or favour. As long as he had the confidence of the ratepayers he would prize the seat, but if, he were not returned. he. wtuld leave with a clear conscience. He could not sit down without paying a tribtute to' the president who was a thoroughly straightforward man: Cr. Kelly 'also: 'spoke, and felt honored by the confidence which had been placed in him by his return unopposed. H-le still believed that a resident would be a better represen tative than a non-resident, but he would always try to do his duty.
