The Dignity of Labor. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890

The Dignity of Labor. Thiehas been a favorite subject with a great many, and much has been written and said upon it, but we have never seen it more truthfully, pointedly and reasonably handled I than in the following, taken from one of our exchanges, and which we reproduce 1 for the benefit of those who will appreciate r it: "Therea s a great deal said about - the dignity of labor ' which falls flat and mean ingless, iecause so few people really under stand in what the dignity consists. Dignity is a human characteristic. W\e readily ap preciate the dignity of a person's thoughts, feeling or manner; we admit the dignity of the race, and of the individual, but it is difficult to extend this attribute to other things. There is no dignity, opr se, in the stroke of an axe, or the scratceing of a pen, in the blow of a hammer, or the shipping of a cargo, in the manufacture of a pin, or the construction of a deed. It is only as the man puts himself into any of these opera. Lione that they c...

Subjects For Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890

Subjects For Tlhou-ht. USEL.rss and hurtful memcries can be crowded out by tilling the mind with better things. Much or such recollections are mere idle reveries that can be swept away by the fresh breeze of enthusiasm, activity and duty. Happy memories, kindly feelings. noble ideas, generous plans, may so fill the heart and employ the mind that there will be neither room nor place for mournful and futile remini?eeeces. THE intervals of life should not be left to haphazard-should not be regarded as idle waters in which each one may drift at plea. Sure without compass or guide. They Sshould be held as trusts for certain definite 3 objects, and regarded of as much importance and: requiring as much thought and care as Sthe principal business of life, which too t often holds us with a relentless and never i relaxing grip. THI body fashions itself more or less after thebo intent of the mind. Just as a man's I character gradually stamps itself upon his I face, so, literally, does his habi...

The Burmese at Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890

The Iurstlllese nit Dinner. The Burmese ute neither knives nor forker. Their staple food is rice, and a Lug. platter of this is c.oked for the family and placed upe,n the tllor. In addition thereis a bowl of curry, a kind of soupy, gravy-like mixture, which is seasoned with lish and pepper, which is very hot. The family squat around the rice dish, and each has Lie own little bowl for curry, and a larger one for rice. Every one helps himself, putting his fingers into the rice platter and taking as much as he can squeeze up in his hands. The food is conveyed from the bowl to the mouth with the hand, and at the close of the meal everyone is expected to wash his own dishes. No drinking is done during the meal, and at the end each goes to the water jar and rinses out his mouth. I have seen many families at meals, and in no case have I seen chopsticks or knives and forks. The Burmese dinner is a perpetual picnic. ALL men have their frailties, and whoever looks for a friend without imperfe...

Power of the Devil-Fish. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890

Power of tlhe Devil-Fish. A: few days ago, at the end of the Naples wharf, a forty-foot pile of about or e foot diameter was loosely tied with one hundred feet of cable. The hands suddenly ooticed the cable running from the coil, and before anyone could eeoure it both pile and cable were moving rapidly to sea. A devil-ah had got entangled in the cable. Boats were at once eecured and started in pursuit, and after a two mile race they captured the line and log, the monster having become loosened, which fact accounts for their bing , able to overtake it. When we consider that this species of ray attains a weight of from three thousand to five thousand pounds, with strength to correepond, this is not astoniah ing. Some months ago the passengers ot the steamer Fearless harpooned one of these fish near San Carlos liay, and after towing the steamer for some time, the engine being reversed and pulling aainst him, they were compelled to cut the line to prevent being carried on the Saonibel b...

English crowds are con epicioue for" the oppeararce of power which seems to animato them," and " every indivi dual seems so. much one of the masters of the country." The French and English Nations are essentially different, and France and England are equally unlike, near as they are to each other. " In no respect are they alike. The French and the English look at you in different ways. A Frenchman looks at you gaily, without asking you ivhy you have come. It gives the French amusement td see men not dressed like themselves and 'ith phyiognomiees different from their own. Toucansee why they are a nation always: in motion.

IBuilding From' the Roof Down. A visitor to Japan tells, of the peculiar m'ethods of construction employed in that country: Speaking ot house-building, the Japanese begin their work at the top. The roof goes on first, and then they begin' to build the wall and to construct the interior. One of greatest curiosities to me in Tokio is a new hotel which is bring built. It is to be on the foreign style, and is to have four stories. It will be the greatest, hotel in Japan. It covers about an acre of ground. As yet not a stone of the foundation has been laid; but the roof is already up, and this !standson a'great four-story skeleton of soaf. folding, awaiting the buildin'g of the, rest of the structure.
