AGRICULTURE. Foreign Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

AGRICULTURE.i, Queensland wheat growers are proving by experience that the hard sheats are the most rust-resisting. Their immunity from the attackseof the roust fungus appears to ue due to the large amount of silioa they con rain, which'is from two to three times as much as the silica, occurring in the seed anti straw of other varieties. The English government expects to save nearly £10,000 a year by using jute instead of hemp twine.'in the post ofilce department throughout that country, for making up bags and parcels, the cost of jute being only one half that of hemp twine. This example is likely to be generally imitated, and may in time affect the market for hemp. . A movement is begun in Germany to utilise to a greater extent the banana fibre. which extends the entire length of the branchless plant, and is capable of being divided into threads of silky fineness. In Central Africa this fibreis dried and used for shoe strings and for cords and ropes, but it is believed that it coul...

Novelist. The Mystery of the Inn: Or, THE DISCOVERY IN THE HIDDEN CHAMBER. A STORY OF TREACHERY, CRIME, AND REMORSE.           By Anna Catharine Green. Author of " The Leavenworth Case," " Behind Closed Doors," etc. CHAPTER XII. EDWIN URQUHART. In that moment Martin Felt paused, and cast a glance toward the Hudson far below us. Then he resumed his narra- tive. "I drew back," he said, "and clenched my hands to keep myself from strangling Urquhart. Then I broke into hurried pants, that subsided gradually into words of perplexity and amazement as I met his eye and realised that it contained nothing but a rude sort of sympathy and good fellowship. "' How ? Why? What do you mean by coming back ?' I cried. ' You said you would be gone a week. You swore — " A gay laugh interrupted me. " ' And must a man keep every oath he makes, especially when it separates him from a charming betrothed, and a friend who swore he would make t...

Brilliants. April is here ! [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 September 1890

April is here ! Blithest season of all the year. Tie little brook laughs as it leaps away; The lambs are out on the hills at play ; The warm south wind sings the whole day long, The merriest kind of a wordless song. Gladness is born of April weather.

Hoist by His Own Petard. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 September 1890

Hoist byU His Own Petard. "Will you kindly allow me to stand ?" asked a gentleman as hlie got ilgto a railway carriage, which already contained the speci. fled number. Certainly not, sir," exclaimed a pas senger occupying a corner seat near the door. "The way these trains are over crowded is shameful." "As you appear to be theonly person who objects to my presence, I shall remain where I am," replied the gentleman. "Then 1 shall call the guard and have you removed, sir." Suiting the action of the word the aggrieved passenger arose, and putting his I head out of the window, vociferously sum moned the guard. The new-comer saw his opportunity, and quietly slipped into the corner seat. " What's up 1" inquired the guard, as he opened the carriage door. , One over the number," replied the new I comer, coolly. 4 " You must come out, sir; the train's going on." And without waiting for further explana tion the guard pulled out the aggrieved pas wsager, who was left wildly gesticulating on 1 ...

FREEDOM OF SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 September 1890

FREEDOM OF SPEECH. , From tihe Brunstack Mfedlium.] THE contemptible manner in which the audience at the town hall on Wed rinesdiy everingig received the remarks on the shipping dispute of Mr. D: Iiethven, 1\:L.A., serves to aptly illus trate the result invariably following the speech of a man who has the courage to express his own opinions and convictions fearlessly and inde pendently. In latter days we still hear much of that British love of freedom of speech and liberty of the subject, but it really seems that there is e dis tinct degenerating tendency ii this respect. Nothing is more unreason able in the treatment of fair discussion than a crowded meeting assembled to hear yiews on a given subject, for fair discussion never has a show.

Duty in Disguise. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 September 1890

DIty in IDisglise. A gate-keeper in the employ of the Hessian Railway Company was recently the hero of an amusing incident. His wife being ill, he went hinmself to m'lk the goat; but the stub born creature would not let him come near it, as it had always been aeoustomed to have this operation performed by its mistress. After many fruitless (Carts, he at length de cided to put on his wife's clothee. The ex periment succeeded admirably; but the man had not time to doff his disguioe before a train approached, and the gate-keeper ran to his accustomed post. His appearanse pro duced quite a seneation[ among the olficials of the paseing train. The gase was reported, and an irqtiry instituted, which, however, resulted in his laver, as thre railway authori ties grarted the honest gate-keeper a gratuity of ten marks for the faithful discharge of his duties.

THE EAST BRUNSWICK INDEPENDENT CHURCH. On the evening of last Sunday the subject ot the present labor crisis was the theme of discoursec. The service was conducted by the Rev. W. Currie at the request of the pastor of the church, the Rev. W. H. Lawrence, whose recent indisposition forbids his taking the pulpit for a short season. The discourse occupied about an hour in delivery. The rev. gentleui n, in his intro ductory remarks, considered that, although the public were no longer so dependent upon the utterances of the pulpit as in past times, yet tIhe teacher of morals was still under obligation to speak his best and truest word upon all questions affecting thie interests of his fellow-creatures. Better far to be accused of taking sides than be labelled a " safe-man." He need not dabble in business details but he ought to spea firmly where questioins og t right iand tI wrong are involved.

SHORT SKETCHES. The Men Who Succeed. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 September 1890

SHORT SKETCHES. The Men Who Succeed. The man who attempts to go into a businessof which he has no praLctical know ledge makes a great mistake. While he may have the assistanc of an able and practical superintendent upon whom he must rely for the suooesaful conducting of his business, so far asno the mechanical and labor department is concerned, he is place3 at great died vantag in many ways, and it is very doubtful if hlie is ever successful in the brsineee. There is a vast difference in the intereste of the parties concerned. WVhile the superintendent en gaged at a good salary is supposet to look carefully after and protect the interests of his employer, he isin reality only interested to the extent that the other employes are, but at the same time is in a position to take advantage of his employer if so disposed. The knowledge that the proprietor is ignor ant of the details and general workings of the establishment makes it a very easy matter for him to take advantages which under...
