SNAGS'S CORNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

*-4-- SNAGS'S CORiNERS. The officials of a Michigan railroad now being extended, were waited upon the other day by a person from the pine-woods and sandhills who announced himself as JMr. Snags, and who wanted to know if it could be possible that the proposed line was not to come any nearer than three miles to the hamlet namted in his honour. " Is Snags's Corners a place of much im portance ?" asked the president. "Is it? Well, I should say it was. We made over a ton of maple sugar there last spring." " Does business flourish there ?" "Flourish ! Why business is on the gallop there every minute in the whole twenty-four hours. We had three false alarms of fire there in one week. How's that for a town which is to be left three miles off by your railroad ?" Being asked to give the names of the busi ness houses, he scratched his head for awhile, and then replied : " Well, there's me to start on. I run a big store, own eight yoke of oxen, and shall soon have a dam and saw-mill. Then ther...

EFFECTS OF THE STRIKE. STOPPAGE OF HOFFMAN WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

EFFECTS. OF. THE STRIKE. STOPPAGE OF HOFFMAN WORKS. - The effects of the strike are making themselves disastrously felt throughout the city and iuburbs and the stoppage I of work at many manufactories owing t to the insufficient nupply of coal is proving very harmful in its consequences to all portions of the community. 1 Brunswick and, Coburg, through the foresight of manufacturers, have until recently enjoyed an immunity from trouble owing to lack of fuel, but on Monday evening consternation was caused amongst the men engaged at the Hoffman Companys' works, Brunswick, by the announcement that after the following evening work would be sus pended. A notice to this effect was posted at the gates and in answer to queries made, Mr. Murdoch stated that much though the directors regretted the step nevertheless they were compelled to stop. Brown goal and wood had been used and tried as a substitute for Newcastle coal but was found to be unsatisfacetory. Thus 250 or 800 men r-e thrown out ...

The Sunflower. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

The Sunofloe er. Some time ago I saw an article which stated that one of our scientific men had ex ploded the theory that the sunflower followed the sun. Now as that belief was part of my childish education, and I have a fair share of ouri osity, I came to the conclusion that I would see for myself if it were fiction or fact. Fortunately for my purpose, by some chance a sunflower seed had been planted at our front door-step, and an the time I read the statement mentioned, the plant was quite large ; so I determined to watch it. The next morning my first thought was of my sunflower, which I found inclined toward the east. All that day I observed it closely at noon my plant was standing upright, and as the sun travelled westward the flower fol lowed it, until at sunset every bud and leaf was turned toward the sun. From that time I watched the flower daily; every morning I found it bending toward the east; at noon it was upright, and in the evening drooping westward. Several times I ar...

Effects of Nervous Excitement. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

Effects of Nervoits Excitement. An engineer Lf a passenger train, on rounding a curve suddenly, eaw a train about sixty yards ahead and stationary. With great. presence of mind he reversed his engine, signalled for the breaks to be applied, and, by vigorous action, prevented a dia aitrous collision. The excitement of the moment was tremendous, but only a violent Itrembling of the legs remained, aned he con tinued at his poet. But the mischief had been done. After five days he had to re linquish his duties, and he gradually became unfit for work. Once a robust, stalwart man, he ha- become very thin h' gait is slouching and toilsome, his speech sliw and stammer I ing. lie is sutlet ing front what is known as "railway spine," a most distressing disease.

Sand Bags For Health. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

Sand BIags For Health. The sand bag is invaluable in the sick room. Get some clean, fine sand, dry it thoroughly in a kettle on the stove. Make a bag about eight inches square of flannel, fill it with dry iand, sew the opening carefully together and cover the bag with cotton or linen. This will prevent the sand from sifting out, and will also enable you to heat the bag quickly by placing in the oven or on top of the stove. After once using this you will never again at. itempt to warm the feet or hands of a sick person with a bottle of hot water or brick. Tne sand holds the heat along time, and the nbag can. be tucked up to the back without hurting the invalid., It is a good plan to Bake two or three of the bage and keep them on hand, ready for use at any time when needed.

Not that I've acted well my part - I offer no such plea But that I'm poor and sick at heart, And Jesus died for me.

A Detective's Experiences. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 8 October 1890

A Detcctivc's Expcriences. The plot of many a stirring novel could be gleaned from a detective's note-book. One of my most romantic experiences was the in vestigation of a robbery case in which a woman was concerned. The loser, a mer chant, employed three boy clerks in his store, and every clerk had access to the money drawers. He had been married only a year and lived in rooms above his store. A stairway ran up from the interior, and on? the firstday of my arrival I noticed that his wife came down three or four times, helping herself to thread, ribbon, or whatever she fancied or needed. She was a woman not over 22 years old, handsome and intelligent, and knew all about what was going on be low. I? watched closely, but £5 disappeared from the drawer on the second day without my gaining a clue to the thief. Questioning a clerk, he said no one had been near the money drawer but the merchant's wife. Next day I sent my employer out on the street and took up my position to watch. Present...
