COPY OF LETTER REFERRED TO. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

COPY OF LETTER REFERRED TO. DEAR SIR,--With reference t the plans submitted to your council; bj~ Mr.. S. G. Duncan :;for' approval, I may mention that Mr:. Duncan pro mised to see you, but I am not aware whether he has done so, and therefore thought it better to mention that the alteration was caused by the fact that there are at present no 67 lb. rails in Melbourne and it will take from four to six months to obtain them-thus delaying the work unnecessarily. As you experience as an engineer will satisfy you, the stability orthe road will in no wise be affected by the altera tion, and if the matter is delayed it will throw the disturbing of the shire road into the wet months, whilst in addition the ratepayers will- not g "? the benefit of the duplication for somne/ eight months. Yours faithfully, S. FIS HElR SEc Cýr. Kelly reported the resiult of the interview with /Mr. Mlorkham, and ultimately, on the motion of Cr. Voice, it was decided that the engineers of the council and company ...

The piece rendered by the choir was S`Charicy Coulson, the Drummer Boy," tile connective readings being delivered by Mr Sinden. I`The annual tea meeting was held in the Mechanics' Institute on Monday evening, but owing probably to the fact that many were under the misappre hension that such would be held, as customary, on Tuesday evening, the number who partook of the hospitality of the ladies was not o large as might have been anticipated. Nevertheless, those who went fared well, and an inno vation in the form of a bachelors' and pindsters' table was highly appreciated by the young adherents of the church.

Things Best Left Alone. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

Things Best Left Alone. Do not write on ruled paper, or on that decorated with printed sunflowers or bloasoms of any kind. Do not introduce your girl friend to the gentleman visitor. Instead, say, " Miss Brown. will you allow me to present Mr. Joncs?"' Do not talk especially to one person when you have three or four visitors. Instead make the conversation general. Do not attempt to take care of a man's overcoat ; he has a vote and ought to be able to look afer his own clothes. Do not giggle when a smile would answer, and don't talk in a jesting way about things that are holy to other people. Do not laugh at anybody's form of worship; respect a toad praying to a mush. room. Do not a~ y the rules of etiquette are nonsense ; they are made up for your comfort and mine, and arranged so that the fe-lings of every human being are con sidered. Do not get into the habit of laughing at elderly p'ople. It is not only unladylike, hut it is vulgar Do not think it clever to find out by pump ring,...

Rural Dairy Suggestions. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

Rural Dairy Suggestions. TorRE is a good deal of scrub butter, and it is just as unprofitable as a scrub animal. By the way, scrub butter can be made from the milk of the beat cow that was ever bred. It is the pedigree of the dairyman that tells on the quality of the butter quite as much as the pedigree of the cow. ONE man says that he feeds his cows a . bushel basket full of corn ensilage twice a day, six pounds of oats and all the oat straw they will eat. That will do very well, but equal quantities of bran, ground oats and corn meal, would likely be better. In summer time, when pastures are in their prime, we make good butter in large quantities. When winter comes, if we do not feed well, we do not make good butter in large quantities. It is a question of feed. NEVER use milk from a sick cow. Never sell it for anybody else to use either. We can better afford to throw away the milkof a cow than we can to endanger the health of ourselves or others. THeRp is no cure for tuberculosis...

Foot Rot in Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

Foot Rot in Sheep. There is a large number of prescriptions for this malady, for it is so universally dif fused past of the one.hundredth meridian that the ingenuity of many thousands of men has been brought to bear in combating it. Blue vitroil (sulphate of copper) is so easily obtainable. so cheap, and so emflcacicus if rightly applied, that we do not deem it worth while to describe any otherremedy. If any flockmaster has ever applied blue vitriol, and afterwards resorted to something else, that fact is strong presumptive evidence that he either did not eufliciently prepare the feet beforehand, or did not apply it with thoroughness. First, if the disease has made such pro gress as to have passed under the horny shell of the hoof, it will be necessary to hunt it out thoroughly. The ulcerative matter may be so accumulated and hardened in the track of the malady as to prevent any remedy from reaching the. real seat of the disease, where it is feeding on the fresh, healthy tie sues un...

Wrinkles. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 1 October 1890

Wrinkles. While cosmetics are legion for the effacement of wrinkles, it is better still, if possible, to prevent thesetiresome footprints of time. An old adage tells as to "laugh and grow fat;"' but some clever women have observed that it also hasanother rendition " laugh and grow wrinkled." E'pecsally is this true inthe casa of those who have but little natural oil in the skin. A gaijty which finds frequent expression in hearty laughter is productive of deep furrows in the flesh of the face. The woman who is wise in her generation and studies her appearance will do well to eschew this aging practice. Ex pressive eyes and the suggestion of a charm ing smile around the lips are really more l<estive and much pleaeanter;to ,looklr upon than fe'atores distbred by exlaberant merri ment. In ftct the people who can afford to laugh are few. Many women and even girls whosse faces in repose are really attractive looking lose it all when they crumple them up into creases by excessiv...
