CONVICT DAYS IN VAN DIEMAN'S LAND TRUE CHRONICLES. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] No.12. THE STRANGE OLD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

OONVICOT DAYS VAN DIEIMAN'S .LAND., TRUBE CHRONICLES, ELtL GHTS OmSERVED.) --4--- - No. 12. THE STnATOE OLD MA,. The task which Geber and hie companions had set themselves was a tremendous one, Their knowledge of Van Dieman's Land geography was very limited. They knew that by following the coast northwards from Macqoarie Harbor they would come to Port Davy, and they also understood that by still hugging the coast in the same direction, they would come to the sparsely settled district around Launceeston. In this they were partly right, but they did not calculate on the great distance they must travel before reach. ing the Launceston district, and the im. minent danger they would run of having their frail craft dashed to pieces on the rook. bound coast on that usually stormy ocean. They had a good supply of provisions, and had, moreover, taken the precaution to pro vide fishing lines, which would materially assist their food supply. In their hurry they had only placed one keg of water...

THE ESSAYIST. "Who Helps a Man When He's Down?" [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

TIE ESSAYIST, . "Whio Helps a Man When Ice's Down ?" Br lMtr. WesT. Strange how the refrain of an old song will ring itself into mind and memory, and, like the words just quoted, if it ask a question, will become more and more insistent in its interrogation-in this cave, "Who helps a man when he's down 1" Too only answer is, "Nlo one.'' Once let a man get down, and he stays until Death comes along and drops a stone upon him-men call it a monument -to keep it down forever. To one with any kindliness of feeling, there is no sight more melancholy than a man reduced from al flence to poverty, and deserted by those who passed as his friends. " Friend after friend depart; who bath lost a friend l" is a query that needs no reply, but only those who, in their own expierience, have ver;fisd the uro verb, "Prosperity makes friends, but adver sity tries them," can know how exceedingly bitter-yea, even more bitter than the waters of ?I trab, is the defection of fair-weather friends. A man of go...

Strength and Income. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

Sturelngth snurl Incomsee. There are women whose strength would only suffne for their own homes, and the demnuds in them, it a reserve is to be left for the future when the strength-producing powers are gone and physical life is pau. perised, who give more strength outside than inside theirhomes. Men and women shrink from financial poverty in old age, but the wealth of nations cannot save from physical poverty if strength has not been administered wisely. Every man and woman has a right to a spiritual, a mental, life that will administer to the future. It is the reserve fund on which they must draw when the world for gets them on its forward march, when en feebled vision and halting step leave them at the roadside for the chariot of death. How many men and women who are busily hoard ing money for that future are hoarding the strength that will make it doubly rich? It is appalling, the rate at which we live, using every day every ounce of strength we make and drawing on future streng...

The Coburg Leader. "I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whose list." AUGUST 5TH., 1891. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

" I am in the place where I am demanded of I conscience to speak the trath, and there fare the truth I speak, impugn it. whoso list."' AUGUST 5TI., iSgi. A qUESTION of considerable interest to ratepayers is at present being fought out in the Brunswick Court. This is the case of" the Brunswick Council against Coote.- - The defendant is the owner of land which abutts on a certain unmade right-of-way, and some time ago notices were served on Coote and. others owning land there to make the right-of-way in accardance with.* the specifications prepared by the local council. Adopting the usual practice the owners were also assessed in certain amounts for the work, and it was: expected that the money would be paid, to the council, when that body wouldc call tenders for the work. Coote's apportionment came to £1i-that is the last notice he received in April last, but previously he had been called on to pay £12 for the same work. Being a contractor he probably thought that he could do his por...

It took but a minute to reach the roof when the man drew the rope up after him and with the same skill cast it again and caught it in the gutter-edge of the roof of the main building. 5 A moment more and he was on the roof of the house. The half-breed had swung the satchel around his neck, and had borne it to the root with him. Once on the roof he drew a couple of tools from the bag and then moved round and peered into the French windows projecting from the peculiar roof so lately come into general favor among architects. He then passed to all the windows and finally came to one which he found boarded on the inner side. A low exclamation burst from his lips on making this discovery, and he passed to an adjoining window, forced the eash and en tered. Once within, he drew a dark lantern from his bag, struck a light and studied his sur roundinge. He found himself i...

" You are Mr. Qiezeen, the husband of the celebrated lecturese on cookery, are you not?" "Yes, sir," replied the dejected, hol low-eyed man, " I am the man she tries her new dishes on." "Ceonucron, what was that?" asked a nervous old lady as the wheels of the tram made a little more jar than usual. " We went over a few frogs just then," he replied. " Most like equashed the poor things, too," she said, with a tremor in her voice. " I SEE," remarked Mr. Phunnyman again, "that the great powers are making a meal of Africa." " In what wea ?"

Diseases of Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 August 1891

Diseases of .Pollry. A few hintswith respect to the diseases of fow'a will Le u?eful, as "forewarned is fore armed," in this as in every other instinct where disease is concerned. Disease is cauird in carious ways, anld there is no doubt but that individuals, for themselves and for their animals and birds, always acted in a sensible and careful manner there would be very little of it. But as this is not so, and as complaints are often generated in a way quite unexpected, we must be prepared for them if we are to succeed in gaining the mastery. Amongst highly-bred stock hereditary tendencies have a great deal to ean?ncr for. There is a law which provides that the offspring shall copy the parents, and we thus find the secret of many unhealthy fowla. A fancier who has a highly-bred and fine race of fowls may be tempted to breed from such birds as ehnov some weakness or diocase, in the hope that a few of the chickens may not reproduce it, and he is willing to take the extra trouble invo...

Josh Billings' Philosophy. I don't kno of ennything that wilt, kill a man so quick az praise that he` don't de serve. Rspentanse should be the effekt ov love, not fear. The soul haz more disseasees than the boddy has. Things that we kant do wouldn't be ov enoy use to no if we could do them. Among animals, the most ignorant are the most stubborn ; and i wonder it this ain't so amongst men. A phool seems to be a person who has more will than judgement, and more vanity than either. The lust intimashun i had that i waz get ting old waz, i found myself telling to mi friends the same stories over again. In repenting ov sins, men are apt tow re pent ov those they haint got, and overlook thoze they hav. A dandy never yet fell in love-only with himself. Revenge sometimes sleeps, but vanity al ways keeps one eye open. Thoze folks who expekt to fail in an enter" prise most generally do.

Cold Water Without Ice. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 August 1891

Cold Water Without Ice. The town of Hanover, Pa,., is closely built up, and without any system of drainage, so that the water from the wells is unfit to drink. Some years ago these reasons led to the introduction into the town of a supply of very excellent water from a large spring about three miles distant. This water ia brought through iron pipes, and when it reaches the consumer in summer is warm, while the water in the wells is cool. For this reason many of the inhabitants drink the well water, and,as a consequence,typhoid fever is a prevalent disease in the commu nity. In order to obtain pure cool water, not im. pregnated with lime, some of the inhabit ants of the place have adopted a plan which is so simple and gives such excellent results that it is worthy of general adoption wher ever there is a water supply other than wells or springs. The plan is as follows: A. cylindrical galvanised sheet-iron tank, 12 inches in diametar, and four or five feet long, is placed in thebottom...
