A Good-Natured Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890
A Good-Natured Wife. The following anecdote as told by an Eng lish clergyman was found in an exchange. The teller of the story says. It must be re membered that the kettle referred to was hung in an old-fashioned open fire.place. A man in Sussex whose wife was blessed with a remarkably even temper, went over the way to a neighbor one evening, and said: " Neighbor, I'd just like to see my wife cross for once. I've tried all I know, and I can't make her cross no way." "You can't make your wife cross " said his neighbor. " I wish I could make mine anything else. But you do just what I tell you, and if that won't act, nothing will. You bring her in some night a lot of the crookedest stices you can get, them as won't lie in no form, and see how she makes them out." The pieces of wood were accordinsly brought in, as awkward and crooked and contrary as could be found. The man went away early to work, and at noon returned to sce the rc sult of his experiment. He was greeted with a smiling f...
TOMMY'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890
TOMMY'S DREAM. Tommy had been to the school treat, away out from the dirty, crowded, hot streets in which he lived, into the beautiful green, fresh country. And Tommy had enjoyed the treat; but I am afraid that many of the butterflies and other insects, and some of thebirds, too, had cause to grieve that Tommy and his little mates had been there to a treat; it was none for them. A great part of the day Tommy had spent in what he thought good fun. He had chased beautiful butterflies, but when he caught them, he could do little with them. They were a source of amusement to him for a short time, and then he would let them flutter away with spoilt and broken wings. He had tried to capture the large bees which he saw flying about, but as he laid hold on one it stung him, so,thinking himself badly used, he let it go. Then he had frightened many of the birds by throwing stones at them, only, fortunately, he aimed badly, and never hit his mark. And when he and some of his companions, wander...
Historical. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890
HIistorical. COnrIsrtMs carols are believed to have been devised as a substitute for the songs of the old heathen festivals. The oldest printed collection of English Christmas carols bears the date of 1521. THE Celtic literature is of very ancient origin, all the old Celts having a literary class called " bards." The ancient Irish wrote in a rude alphabet called the Ogham. The people of Gaul have left comparatively few inescriptions, and these are often much Latinised. Sosersr giver an account of a dog that, about 1600, "To the knowledge of all Paris," remained for more than two years beside the tomb of his master in the Cemetery of the Innocents. If carried to a distant part of the city and locked up, he would return to the tomb as soon as he escaped. TE: earliest translation from the Sanscrit, the " Sutra," of forty-two sections, was made A.D. 67, and for several centuries there was constant activity in this work.

loetrp. Two Songs. 1. My cigarette burns fair and free, The curling sroke goes higher; Soft dream-clouds they, in which I see Fulfilled all I desire- A etsttely home with portals wide, On broad lawn graceful sweeping, (Sweet roses red on every side Go up the trellis creeping. A silver lake comes to the lawn And laps its verdant edges, While in and out the graceful swan Glides lightly through the sedges.) The happy home in which I live, Beloved and rich as Croesus, With open hand to spend or give, Just asmy fancy pleases. And Phyllis fair my home to grace, And love me truly ever, Sweet Phyllis, with her beauteous face That none can equal-never. (By another hand.) They made the gentle poet's grave By the side of the peaceful river, Where the soft night-breeze that comes o'er the wave Makes the moonbeams lightly quiver. And the bright green grass grows lightly o'er, And the myrtle and violet Spell ".Taken away (sged twenty-four) By the deadly cigarette." '
