SPORTS AND PASTIMES. FOOTBALL MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890
s SPORTS AND PASTIMES. FOOTBALL MEMS. Saturday's football contests furnished a sensational event in the defeat for the first time during the current season of the South Melbourne club, which had occupied an apparently unquestionable position at the head of the premiership list. The Carlton twenty, who proved the victors, had previously played a closely contested match with the South Melbourne, which ended in a victory for the latter. Thd tables were, however, turned on Saturday in a tolerably de cisive manner, the %arlton winning by -5egolds and 19 'behiods to 3 goals and 4 behinds. The defeat can scarcely affect the premiership position, as the South Melbourne is still six points ahead of the Carlton club, which is second on the list. The South Melbourne repre sentatives have yet to play against Gee lung, Fitzroy, and Richmond, while two of the Carlton's remaining contests are, curiously enough, also against Geelong and Fitzroy, the third being with Mel bourne. I?oth clubs have, th...

How to Decline a Treat. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890
fIHow to Decline a Treat. The Iollowing conversation was heard be tween two collegians, who were discussing a class dinner : "Of course," said one-with a conee quential touch of self-compla.ency and patronage which students call " fresh," and which only lengths of days can cure-" if a fellow hasn't wit enough to know when to stop, he'd better be careful at first. Some heads are built weak, you know." '"Careful in what 1" interpolated I, and both laughed. " Why, drinking, of course," said the first speaker. " A fellow has to take his season. ing sooner or later. Some can stand it. Some cannot, at least for a while." He was, asI have intimated, a freshman. His friend, a bearded senior, the only son of a rich man, clapped him good-humoredly on the shoulder. " When I was your age, old fellow, my father said to me, 'if I had my life to live over, I would never take a glass of wine or smoke a cigar.' I answered, ' It would be foolish not to profit by what such a sensible man says.' I have...

Napoleon Defeated. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890
iNapoleon Defeateld. Napoleon I., the great Empror of France; never could smoke, although when in Egypt he attempted several times to do 0o in order to please the people. On one ocoasion,'wlien the Persian ambassador prerented to hini,' on behalf of the Shah, a very valuable and- gor geona pipe, " all diamonds and iare jewels," Napoleon's attendant filled the pipe, and a light' was applied; but, in the way the emperor went to work no smoke would have appeared until doomsday. He merely opened and shut his lips in the energetio manner of a mechanical figure. The attendant ven. tured to observe that his majesty was not proceeding in the usual manner, and showed him the correct way in which to manage his pipe "of'peace. But the inapt pupil 'per sistently returned to his bad imitation of yawning, until, tired and vexed with repeated failures, he at last desisted, saying : / "Constant, do you light the, pipe-I can nobt 1.

HORTICULTURE,;, Commercial Fruit Giowin,. Th reason'l tlat so many fail s con nercial fruit growing, is eiimply because tley lo not makes any serious effor totb be ~sno seasful. People grow. grain and make a success of i beciuee they give'it k atteition' they breeds4 nd feed stobk ucdesaefullfodr the same reason; but when it comes to fruit growing many a man gives it no at tention whatever further than to plant and harvest. There seems to be a common idea that a man can or ought to get some thing for nothing when it. comes to fruit zrowing. So we find men who select urieties at random; plant with the same 7arelesEness; neglect to protect the growing fruit from weeds and insects; let it starve to death from lack of fertilisers ; pick it care. lessly, and dump it into a box or barrel as if it were so many pebbles. Once in awhile there is care exercised to put the best on top and fill in below with positively unisalable fruit, and that kind of care is much more worse than none. A write...
Raspberry Culture. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890
Raspberry C@Itnre: I SOne of the .troubles which oneiot our subscribers evidently has.in growing:rasp-. 'berries is that he has planted them too close together.

Bagging Grapes. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890
Bragginz Grapes. In answer to an enquiry of a correspon ''dent as to how grapes are. bagged, and 1what isthe result of it, iwe reply that the :Gbags--common paper bags-are placed over ,the bunches of grapes while they are growing, ..and tied on. It.prevents all attacks upon the grapes by birds, insects or, disease, and thus saves the crop. It is affirmied, however that it does not pay to bag grapes that are, intended-for themarket, as itmakes the skin so tander that it is easily,broken., The bagging of grapes did so'well'in 'the matter of preserving them; that some tomato arnd p" -pear growers have adopted the method, they ,S, ayO with ..satisfactory saneeo,,.k.h ittament.
