His Unlucky Day. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890
Ils Unllucky Day. "I tell you what it is," said a man. "I am firmly convinced that every man has his particular days for good and bhod luck. Mor.day is my unlucky day. I have been watching it for twenty years, and nothing can shake me in this belief. I never begin any enterprise, no matter how trivial, or start on any journey on that day. There fore I make Monday an off day and do nothing but potter around the house. Even in these little affairs everything goes wrong. Take the record of last Monday, a fair average, and be convinced : " Smashed finger while nailing board on fence. " Fell down sellar stairs with coal scuttle. "Fell over wheelbarrow while carrying step-ladder. " Sat down on a chair where children had been pulling. taffy. " Got swindled by peddler. "Got thumb pinched in gate. " Dropped smoothing.iron on foot. , Baby syt out in yard and was butted by a strange oat. " Tax man called.

Milton equally enraptured, calls it:- ' The seasons prime for sweetest scents and airs." Nature involuntarily rouses the heart to a pitch of enthusiasm, and it is therefore not surprising that poets and artists emulated in singing the boundless praises of beautiful sprin...

A True Story of Mt. St. Bernard Dogs. JOSEPH WALLACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890
A True Story of Mt. St. Bernard Dolts. JOSEPH nWALTACE. I was one of a small party of tourists who left the Hospice of Mt. St. Bernard early in the morning for Monte Verd. The route was diflicult and dangerous, owing to drifting and ice slides the night before, which blocked up the whole beaten path. Above us hung huge mountains of ice and snow, cold, cheer less, and threatening, and before nos, as far as the eye could reach, a great sea of ice in its cold, gloomy bed, resembling a mountain torrent arrested in its course, with all its billows standing in heaps, defying alike the power of the sun and the assaults of time. Some of our party, more venturesome than the rest, wore crampoons while descending the great walls of ice, and those who were timid or fatigued lagged behind. My cousin, whose eyes suffered from the glare of the snow, was turning an abrupt ledge of rook in in order to rest and get a better view of the descending party and route they are taking, when, suddenly and wi...

LITTLE FOLKS. A Birthday Ballad. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890
LITTLE FOLKS. A Birthday Ballad. A tiny frown her brows ensnare Above her arch and dairty nose; - She pushes back the falling hair From cheeks where color brightly glows; Her lips demure their tale diselnee, Her small hands foloed on her t nee. " My birthday's done I how last time goes When you are five years old I" says she. " I had my cake with Dick to share; I had to mend my dollie's clo'es, And walk with her around the square, And iced the cat and play with Bose, And 'muse mamma, and tend my rose, And-Oh, there's so much work, you see " A sigh as oft as April snows "When you are five years old," says she. Then every dimple debonair With sudden laughter overflows In blithe oblivion of care, She rises on her airy toes, And twirls and twinkles silken hose. And claps her hands in conscious glee, " What fun you have, oh, no one knows, When you are five years old," says she " But never mind "-and she bestows A glance consoling, soft, on me " You'll understand it all, I s'pose, When yo...

Noted Dogs of History. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890
Noted Dogs of History. The most famous dog in history is that of Ulysses. However, there are certain carines of a more recent cer'od that they have won TYUAS I., DISYARCK S DOG. distinctio n for them aelves. Ty ras II. is one of these. The recent de mise of Ty as II. has slunged Bismar o k arn sym pathies in to mourn ing. Tyras was the eonstant companion of Bismarck, not only at home, but abroad, and even in the council cham ber. It has been said by a German writer that Bismarck made of Tyras a wheel of his policy. Lying upon a lounge in the working onice of the Wilhelms Strasse, this dog of gigantio size and ferocious appearance, seemed to be fully conscious of his exalted position. He received visiting diplomates with arrogant looks, suspicious scrutiny, and sometimes with actual growls, all to the immense delight of Prince B smarck. With out going so far as to say that Tyras actually put his gigantic paw upon the signature of treaties, it is perhaps not too much to con clude that...
