Poetry. If We Knew. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

fl oetr . . If JV 'Knew. Could we but draw backithe curtains That surround each other's lives, See the n ied heart and spirit, K .ow what spur the action gives, Otntn we shouldt ind it better, Purer than we judge we should; We -hould love each other better It we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motives, See the good and bad within, O.ten we should love the sinner All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the power? working To o'erthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more pstitnt charity. If we knew the cares and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood the loss and gain- . Would the grim. external roughness . Seem, I wonder,j st the same? . Should we h'lp where now we hinder?. Should we pity where we blame?., Ah I we judge each other harshly, Know,ri not life's hidden f;rce; Knowir g not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid the evil All the , l 'en grains of good; Oh I w,'d love ...

FUNNIOSITIES A Thankful Parson. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

FUNNIOSIT"IES ":>iA Thankful Parson. A piou' pareon good and true Was crossing o'er the seas,. When suddenly there fiercely blew A wild and sweeping breeze. He feared the storm the ship would wreak, His heart was sore afraid, He sought the captain on the deck And found him undismayed. The captain saw his awful fear And led him up to where The servant of the Lord could hear The sailors loudly swear. "You clearly see," the captain alid, "If danger hovered nigh, They'd all be on their knees instead, And asking grace to die." The parson felt his words were true, And when the skies grew fair He marvelled how the sailors knew Just when to pray or swear. But when the seas which wildly flowed Had ceased to plunge and spout, Unto himself he said: "It showed They know what they're about." But later on another storm Came fiercer than before, The parson heard with wild alarm The ocean's angry roar. He sought the deck in awful dread, To near the sailors get. He listened-then he bowed his head...

Lucky and Unlucky Days. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

Lucky and Unlucky Days. It was deemed highly important among the old Anglo-Saxons that a child should be born on a lucky day, upon which his whole after life was supposed to depend, for, in their opinion, each day had its peculiar irfluence upon the destiny of the youngster. Thus the first day of the new moon was preferred to all others for the arrival of the little stranger. A child born when the moon is new Will surely live past eighty-two, they would chant to themselves, end be happy with the thought. The second day was not I so lucky as the first. The child born on that day would grow fast, but not live long. If born on the fourth day of the month, it would be a great politician ; if on the tenth, a great traveller ; if on the twenty-first, the chances were that it would be a thief or a highwayman. But of all the days of the week or month, the most lucky by far was Sunday. and should a day happen to be anew moon day, the child's prosperity was des tined to be unbounded. Friday w...

Manners of Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

Manners of Mcn. The tallest man in the crowd is sure to stand in front. The women hate a liar, but they force a man to be one. A man is never too old to get married until he is so old he does not care for marrying. The mischief of it is that though travelling takes the conceit out of a man, coming back puts more in. The trouble with your pretty'man is that he is too pretty to be useful, and not pretty enough to be ornamental. When a man has done a good thing, he sits down to rest, but when he has done a bad thing, he loses no time in doing another. WhEn a man is young he thinks to reform the world, but when he gets older, he is quite satisfied if he is able to reform hin self. The physical weakness of an acquaint ance will call out a strong man's sympathy, but mental weakness only attracts his con tempt. When a man gets zmarried, he is apt to think everybody should give him a pre sent, buthow he hates to buy presents for his friends when their day at the altar comes round I

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

POPULAR SCIENCE. In a recent address to the Odontologicrl' Society, Mr. Felix Weiss referred to the question of heredity in teeth. It is com- l monly stated that girls " take after" their fathers and boys after their mothers in the character of the teeth, but the assump- j tion has not been borne out in Mr. W\eies's practice, though he is convinced that the teeth of children do resemble those of one or I other parent. Nun.ele examplles were brought forward shob ing there Lereditary pecularities. Thus, with regard to shape, a father had an extra cousp upon the lingual side of the superior molars; and of six children, four had the same; and the two youngest, who had not yet cut their perma nent molars, bad a similar spur on their temporary molars. Peg-shaped superior lateral incisors in mother and daughter, and overhung and underbung jaws transmitted from parent to child are frequently seen. The transversely grooved and honeycombed teeth, usually considered due to attacks of illness a...

From a Chinaman's Point of View. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

From a Chinaman's Point of View. Mr Sang, a Chinese gentleman who is making a visit to this country thinks this isa very funny country, because we do things exactly opposite to the best form in civilised China. We shake hands with each other; The Chinaman shakes hands with himself. We uncover the head as a mark of respect; the Chinese gallants not only keep their hate on, but when wishing to be very polite re mov. shor .o..... Wyo .haýv ou r .o.S the7 their heads and eyebrows. We cut our finger nails; they consider it aristocratic to let them grow from five inches to a foot in length. The Chinaman whitens his shoes, buries his head on the surface of the earth, and demands that his wine be scalding hot when served. With us black clothing is a sign of mourning; in China white garments indicate the loss of friends. In the Celestial Empire, not children, but old men fly kites, walk on stilts, play marbles, shoot hre crackers, and, in doing this, use their feet as much as possible instea...

Rural Sheep Suggestions. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

Rural Sheeli Suggestions. Sheep about of one age and size do better together in a flock. Divide the sheep accord. ingly. Don't yard the sheep with cattle or horses, don't. It is likeputting a baby on a railroad track. The Merino can be made a much larger. sheep than ii usually is, and we believe that it is wisdom to do it. There are men who fatten sheep on straw and grain alone. The value of good straw is not generally appreciated. Don't keep the sheep in too warm quarters, and on nice days be sure to let them out. Tho sheep does not care for the cold. Have you a rough piece of land that you want cleared? There is no way to do it so cheaply that we know of as to turn a flock of sheep upon it in spring. Look over the flock frequently, that you may detect the lightest indication of disease, and as soon as disease is detected separate the sick from the well. Just so long as we o-'tinue to use inferior rams our sheep husbandry will be more or ' less a failure. Get a good ram and up come...

THE HOME. Stuffy Houses. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

THE HOMbE. Stuiffy Hiuscs. - Many houses are always in order, and one tails to detect dust or dirt; yet they lack the freohness and sweetness which should be a part of every home. In such houes: the carpet. sweeper or theEmall brush-broom and thodust-pan are used to remove all the per ceptible dirt from the floor. The sunlight is shut out, lest earpets and furniture coverings be faded ; the rooms do not get a thorough aOring every day, and this is why a visitor feels oppressed on entering. A woollen car pet will absorb not only the dust, but also all the gases and unpleasant odors which come in contact with it. The carpets or rugs in a sitting-room should be swept or shaken once a week at least, and these rooms should be thoroughly aired every morning. Straw matting or hard-wood, or painted floors are sweeter and more conducive to health than woollen carpets. It is, there fi.re, a pity that anything but matting is ever used for covering a bedroom floor. Small rugs that anybody can e...

Pechaps at no period strougle of the R:,und -heads--ae the Parliamentary troops were called -and the Cava liers did a greater enmity exist be tween the two factions than when they stood face to face near the Northampton ehire villagewhich was to be made famous as the scene of terrible carnage amongst fellow-countrymen.
