Jesting and Jesting. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

Jesting, and Jcsting. There are some entertaining anecdotes told of Gonells, jester to Borso, Duke of Ferrara, in the fifteenth century. As Gonella was on his way to mass.three blind beggars implored al's of him. "Herein a florin for you." said the jester; " divide it among you." He gave nothing and passed on. The beggarsinvoked blessings on him, each supposing that one of his fellows was in possessien of the coin. When they wished to divide the gift, not one of them would allow that he held it, and they accueedeach other of cheating, and from words to blows. Gonella watched the fray with great complacency, and, when the beg gars were all bruised and bleeding, he went on to church with a clear and calm con science. The Duke of Ferrara fell ill, and the doctors declared that only a sudden fright would restore him to health. He was too great a main for anyone to play tricks on except his fool. Gonella was with him in a boat, and cleverly pushed the Duke into the water. Aid had previou...

A Scotchman's Philosophy. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

A Scotchlman; n Phlilosophy. An old Scotchman is said to have risen in prayer-meeting one night and av-opos iof nothing delivered himself of the fo.:nwing remarks: " There are thrre things I never could quite understand. First, why boys will throw sticks at Breen apples when, if they waited, the apples would ripen and drop off; secondly, I never could quite com prehend why men go to war to kill eacn other when, if they remained quietly at home they would die a natural death in good time; thirdly, and most important of all, I do not see why the men chase arcund alter the women, since, if they sat still, the women wouldrun around after them." Tiras are the softening showers which cause the seed of heaven to spring up in the human heart.-Sir Walter Scott. FAILo?E after long perseverance is much grander than never to have a striving Rood enough to hbe called a failure.-George Eliot.

The Female Polar Bear. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

The Female Polar Bear. The female Polar bear is taught by a won derfhl instinct to ehelterher young under the snow. In December she retreets to the aide of a rock, where, by dint of scraping and let ting the snow fall upon her, she forms a cell in which to live during the winter. There is no fear that she will be stifled for want of air, for the warmth of her breath alRals keeps a emall passage open. Within this strange nursery she produces her young, and re mains with them beneath thb snow till March, when she comes out into the open air with her baby bears. As the only use of the snow burrow is to shelter the young, the male bears do not hibernate like the females, but roam freely about during the winter months. Before retiring underneath the snow, the bear eats enormously, so that she becomes very fat, thus laying in an internal store of food which enables her not only to support her own life, but to nourish her young during her long seclusion. By an ad mirable provision of natur...

Hints to Housekeepers. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

lhints to flousckeepers. To raise the pile of plush or vejet, dampen on the wrong side with clean, cold water, then holdhi tight across the face of a hot iron, and rub up the crushed spot .with a clean, Etiff brush. Make all kitchen aprons of seersucker, and so avoid quite an item in the weekly ironing, as it requires none. If work dresses are made of the same goods they need ironing only when lined. A room with a low ceiling will seam higher if toe windcw curtains hang to the floor. Lsmbrequins may be used to extend the curtains to the ceiling, and thus carry our the tffect. Strong muriatic acid applied with a cloth, and the spot washed thoroughly with water, is recommended to remove ink stains from Never wash a je'ly bag, strainer cloth, pud ding bagor dumplings nets with soap.

THE HOME. About the House. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

THE HOME. About the lHouse. Nuts are indigestible things et best; but if we eat them, a little salt taken dry on the tongue after will prevent any ill effects. Nothing we eat needs more thorough mastica tion than nuts before being fit for the human utomach. If swallowed in too coarse a con lition they are apt to make a short stop in some of the narrower passages of the diges live organs with fatal results. For Welsh rarebit-another indigestible dish, by the way-take square slices of stale bread without crust; butter them and dip in a bowl of hot water. Lay on a heated dish and set to keep warm. Pat half a pint of milk in a small saucepan; stand it over a moderate fire; when boiling, add a pint and a half of grated or crumbed cheese, stir until it melts, season with salt and pepper, add the yolks of two eggs, stir, and pour over the toast. The mixture should not be tough or stringy. i The following rhymes for the kitchen are worth committing to memory : Always have egg sauce with sal...

SHORT SKETCHES. Preservation of the Sight. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

S sHORT SKETCHES. Preservation of the Sighlt. When it becomes difficult to read in a dull light, or the eyes feel tired and distressed after some unusual labor, it is time to aid them by the use of glasses, unpleasant as the thought may be. The eyeball is perhaps irregular (atigmatir) or the delita'c rre otructures are diseastd. In either case at. tempts to cure by waiting, or to relieve by persistent straining, are very liable to increase the discomfort and danger. Many people can see well in the distance, and pride them celves on their " good eight," but whenever they attempt close work for any time, they experience more or less itching of the lids, increased flow of tear, blurring or swimming of the object looked at. These are "far sighted," and have to exert the "focussing muscle" so much that in time the eye be comes very weak and distressed. The sooner treatment of this trouble is commenced, the easier is relief tffected. Persons who are "near-sighted " so frequently have othe...

A SAD CASE. THOUGHTFUL FOR "HER BOY." [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

A SAD CASE. THOUGHTFUL FOR "HER BOY." A young girl camned Ada Gray, 15 years of age, who is evidently inclined to vicious pursuits, appeared before the Brunswick Court on Wednesday, charged with the larceny of a gold ring, the property of John Weir. It ap peared Irom the evidence given that the girl was enpioyed in the capacity of a servant at the house where t"e prose cutor boarded. As such she had access to all parts of the house, and unfo: tunately availed herself of the oppor tunity of appropriating things. to her own use. Recently Weir missed a ring valued at 35s, from his room and could find no traces of its whereabouts. A few days after, the lady of the house found that her parasol had' gone, where she knew not, in all probability to keep the ring company, but ultimately ascer tained that Ada had stolen it. Under these circumstances Weir accused her of having taken his ring, and she ad mitted her guilt, stating that she had " made it a present to her boy." Pro secutor request...

A contributor to Cassells Family slligazine says that: "In sprtug, if we will. .,e can hardly take too much exercise, esp cially long walks, and we ought to dress lightly but warmly. The clog-going, cumbersome top coat, .the indiarubber mantle, the. mackin tosh, the heavy muffler and deadly golosh, should all be left indoors when we go out to itBlk. Gloves should be worn, warm, thick stockings and easy, soft shoes; a light silk tcart may be taken and put on if required and also an umbrella; but these are all the arms which one should carry against the weather if he or she values health. ' "Verily, prevention is better than cure. B1t if we cuddle ourselves up indoors in badly ventilated, overheated rooms, and take our exercise abroad, laden to the earth with extra clothing, we cannot be well in either body or mind. We shall be peevish all day, destitute of spirits and ambition; we shall have wretched appetites, sluggish livers and restless nights. - " Here is...

A FREE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

A FREE MEARKET. The literal meaning of the word "Fair" in its commercial sense, is a "free market." In other vords, a "fair" means a market at which all?and,. every may purchase ýor not without being subjected to fee'or tax, and also where all and every can sell without any such" disabilities as attach to ordinary mar kets. At one time the fairs in England were great features in the social and industrial life of the people ;. but, since the establishment of railways, and the .quicker intercommuni cation ?hich. has .resulted, these fairs have pretty well died out" a matter perhaps for regret, in sonic respects, but inevitable under the changed conditions of the national life. Here in Australia, fairs are unknown. In deed very little of the old fashioned methods obtain in these fast go-ahead colonies. Life is not: so slow and lethargic as in Europe, and business is done with, an moeeiuent and force to which, even in this day, few pro viccial folk in the old country are accus tomed. Th...

PRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 October 1890

PRID E. By Grosvenor Bunster. "Don't you think it is about time you thought of getting married?" said Mr. Vent nor to his nephew Paul, as they sat over their wine. "You are 25, Paul, and should marry and settle." "I have no objection," was the answer, indifferently uttered, "provided always-" "That the lady is to your taste. Well, there is plenty of choice. Of course, the first consideration is the social status of the lady." "I don't see that, uncle. Out here in Aus tralia that counts for very little." "With me," replied the elder man, austerely, "it counts before all other things. And mark me-I warn you that if you should be foolish enough-mad enough to fix your affections upon any-ah-obscure sort of person, my doors are shut to you,and my money goes elsewhere." Paul Ventnor frowned, and then he sighed. " Hard conditions, surely. Why, sir, there are hundreds and thousands of good young women who are not in what is absurdly called society." It was the uncle's turn to frown. "I am s...

This morning Madame asked me if I had not some room on the ground floor which I could give to her daughter and her in exchange for the one they now occupy. Her daughter had been ac- customed to living on one floor and felt the stairs keenly. I answered at first—No. Then I ap- peared to bethink me, and told her, with seeming reluctance, that there was one room below which I sometimes opened to guests, but that just now it was in such a state of dilapidation I had shut it up till I could find the opportunity of repairing it. "'Oh !" she replied, subduing her eagerness to the proper point, " you need not wait for that. We are not par- ticular persons. Only let me see the roses come back to my daught...

It is not that the senses strain To catch a sound they may not hear; It is the grieving spirit's ear . r C' That longs and listens still in vain. And to I this silence, sudden grown, Threads every cry of joy or fear; All wonted sounds that greet the ear Break with a wailing undertone.
