ELECTION NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890

ELECTION NOTES. The principal topic of the past few days has been the disgr-ceful Broken Hill Water Supply scandal, and the statement made by M1r: A. G.

Mr. Moore hts issued a disclaimer em phatically denying that he has been guilty of such despicable conduct, and hints very stiongly that the accusation is merely an election dodge. MIr. Brunton has retaliated by denying the charge in tote, 'stating that not one of his supporters were aware of the matter in- the remotest sense untsl reports of Mr. Taylor's statements appeared in the public press, so that whatever may have, actuated " Mudgee Taylo," it is evident that.Mr. Brunton has not been, initru mental in' inducing, him to make such, statements.

In The Nick of Time The Thrilling Experience of a Tele graph Operator. Mits Lily Somerse, night telegraph opera tor at the Floodwood Otatlon, sat bt fore her table, on which a telegraph ine:rumnent cliched busily, a thoughtful expreession on her face. Floodwood was a. forlornly desolate spot and one where any woman except Lily would have been afraid to come, much Ices to stay alone at niht. a ith nothin, but the wind sadly sighing through the wires overhead, and the shrill shrieks of the wild cate away up on the mountain side to keep her company through her nightly vigils. But to her there was something fasuinating in the very desolation of the place. From early childhood she had been accustomed to commune with nature in the wildest scenes, and place: and wandered at will in the mountain glens nod carons. With no foolish old woman or silly nurse-girl to frighten her childish sense with stories of hideous ghosts and monstrous goblins, she had grown to womanhood naturally brave and fe...

It was a cold autumn evening, but the red sun going down behind the spectral moun tains on the desert of Idaho seemed to brighten up everything-just as a blazing log paints the white ceiling of the sitting room and colors the faces of those who watch the incandescent embers glow. The village was quiet, as it always was at this time of day. It wasn't much of a village-a house here and a store there, and all blackened by storms and age. People were scarce, too. Those who were on the one broad street were the kind that grow among sage brush and grease wood-tall, beavily-jawed men, with an awkward swing to their gait and their faded clothing and high-bheeled boots bespattered with mud. A lean, skulking dog prowled along the road, and three heavily saddled and branded ponies were tethered near the Ark saloon. There I were two hundred ...

Hints to Housekeepers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 September 1890

Hints to Housekeepers. When your pies with upper crusts are   ready to put in the oven to bake take a little sweet milk in a cup; and,with a bit of clean cloth, wet the upper crusts and rim. When baked it will present a shiny surface and will not flake off. Marion Harland advises those who use   what grocers catalogue as canned goods to always open the cans some hours before cooking the contents, and empty into an open bowl set in a cool place. This removes the close, airless, smoky taste. Drain the   liquor from peas and beans, cover with fresh, cold water, and let them soak for two hours. It freshens them wonderfully.   Coffee and tea pots will become very much discolored inside in a very short time. To prevent this about every two weeks put into them a teaspoonful of soda - common baking soda - and fill about two-thirds full of water and let boil two hours. Wash and rinse well before using. In this way they will always be sweet ...

German Peasant Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

German Peasant.: Life. There issometliing picturesqoue?ind ro mantic about the life of a German peasant. At least everyone but the peasant sees it in this light. You look" at a pretty picture 'in a gallery and see the country people gracefully grouped at a rustic wedding. You hurry by. in a train and catch eight of them in their quaint, pro vincial costumes digging peat or making hay. You stroll into the country and watch them eat their mid-day meal in the shade of some tree. It is all picturesque, cer tainly, but in every case you see only one side. The peaeants never lie in isolated houses about their farm. They come together and form a little settlement, sometimes not more than a dozen buildings in all. So it is not infrequent to see a small village thickly dotted with these dorfs, or villages, which, it put together, would make a small town only. One of these villages is seen to the beet ad. vantage at twilight in summer. Everybody is back from the day's work in the field's. and...

Saved by a Mirror [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

Saved by a Mirror The following story is related by an Englishman who, with his family, had t passed ten years in India. It was a very sultry summer night. The 1 doors and windows of our bungalow stood wide open to let in the air. My little daughter, two years old, was sleeping in a low crib in a room adjoining the one where I was sitting engaged with some accounts. It was late, all the servants had retired, and everything was quiet out doors and in. In theroom where the child was sleeping there was a large pier glass which we had brought out from Liverpool. It was our most pre tentious article of furniture. This glass hung directly opposite where I was sitting so that if I raised my eyes, objects in the other room were plainly to be seen in it. Suddenly my attention was attracted by what seemed a shadow flitting past, or rather by a sense of something moving in the other room. I looked up. The sight which met my gaze chiled my blood I In the mirror there was reflected a tiger, cree...

"The life of the Christian." As it will take too much space to speak of the items, all of which were excellently ren dered by the various soloists and the choir, we content ourselves with the assertion that the general effect was very good, though a larger number of singers would, no doubt, have further added to its success. The various solo parts were taken by Mrs. H. Buck, Miss Harvie, Mrs. Hal Sheppard and Mr. S. J. Bruce, all of whom sang their parts with a finih which left nothing to be desired. Mr Coutts conducted ad mirably, and showed what could be done by a choir of moderate dimensions...
