WATER, AND ITS USES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 7 June 1856
WATER, AND ITS USES. COLD WATSB is a useful thing, As in hail, pr ice, or snow ; Such forms as this some good will bring Prom God above, we know. i He formed the waters by his hand, He holds them in his pow'r ; Divides them from the solid land, Upholds them every hour. A common gift on all bestowed, ! It is withheld from none ; ¡ 'Tis given for a proper use, I And gladdens every home. ' Tis useful ia ito every form, . Unmixed, preserved, pure ; I But, if polluted, as by some, ¡ It kills with poison, sure. Keep it alone, and keep it good, It helps digest your daily food ; But, drink it cold when you are hot, ! Your blood and it agree will not. ! Then when you feel you are athirst, If wann, then warm your water first ; In ott er states, as you may be, So-suit thy water unto thee. ; In vapours, fog, or mist, or rain, ¡ ' Tis useful to mankind again ; In springs, in streams, in rivers too, Its use is felt to not a few. But thousands of a living- rac« Can, to its source, a blessing trace...
Happy as a King. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 7 June 1856
Happy as a King. Aa mine, no heart is half so light, Whether at morn, or noon, or night I labour hard, I pay my way, And do some good deed every day. For oft I've proved what now you're told, ji wann heart is worth more than gold, A nd he who does a kindly thing, Shall feel as happy as a Ring. I have not much that I can spare ; But what I eau I freely share. From want I never turn aside, Nor cringe to pampered wealth or pride.] I strive to act an honest part, To succour the afflicted heart ; A nd when I've done a kindly thing, I feel aa happy as a King. Thus I have lived-so may I die, Awi bid thia world of ours good bye ; No, from this faith I'll never swerve, That God my spirit will preserve ! For oft I've proved what now you're told, A warm heart is worth more than gold. AnA he who does a kindly thing, May feel as happy as a King. G. L. B. TT~_ I
Alcohol a Poison. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 7 June 1856
Alcohol a Poison. DE. MUSSEY, U.S., asks-"What is a poison ? " It is that substance, in what ever furn\ it may be, which, when ap plied to a living surface, disconcerts and disturbs life'3 healthy movements, it is altogether distinct from substances which are in their nature nutritious. It is not capable of bei g converted into lood, and of becoming patt of the living or gans. We all know that proper food is wrought into our bodies ; the action of animal life occasions a constant waste, and new matter has to be taken in,-1 which, after digestion, is carried into the blood and then changed ; but the poison is incapable of this. It may, indeed, be mixed with nutritious substances, but if it goes into the blood, it is thrown off as soon as the system can accomplish its deliverance, if' it has not been too far enfeebled by the influence of the poison. Such a poison is alcohol-such in all its forms, mix it with what you may. PROF. ORFILA found that alcohol ts a violent poison, when injec...

ENCOURAGE RATIONAL AMUSEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 7 June 1856
ENCOURAGE RATIONAL AMUSEMENT, . THERE is a more profound meaning in the word " amusement," than most peo ple in this country are disposed to ad mit. There Î3 a philosophy in amuse ment, as well an in education ; indeed, we have no hesitation in averring, that amusement is a most important part of education» Of course, there ale many kinds of amusement, varying according to the degree of moral and intellectual culture of those taking part in them. There are the. law amusements of the grcss and the uneducated, whom so ciety has allowed to grow up in its midst, with minds untrained and un taught, with tastes unrefined by inter course with art or letters, andi «ho are narrowed in all their sources of plea sure and enjoyment. To theâe the bru tal exhibition of a dog-fight or a public execution affords the only opportunity for a saturnalia of enjoyment--an en joyment which is level with the mean est capacity, and no pther. How dif ferent the amusements of the intelligent and refined,-r-su...
