The Esthetics of Smoking. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 22 October 1890
The ~Esthetics of Smnoking. To understand emoking as a fine art, one must see a Japanese lady smoke. As I travel much in the cars, and second class, as the beltt r-to-do of most Japanese do. I get an insight into many national traits and mannere. The coolieeandfarming people and the like go third class, and in such crowds one thinks on drawing up to a station that the whole village is going to boald the train. They are great travellers, both for pleasure and business. Smoking is practiced by all, great and small, old and young, and both sexes alike enjoy the weed. Japanese tobacco is rank and strong, and not liked by foreigners. It is cut very fine, after the manner of fine-cut chewing tobacco, but it is not chewed, nor is snuff used. The Japanese pipe is a miniature affair, and though one seee sometimes costly ones Io amber or fine metal-work, theusual pipe is a small tubeof bamboo, about the size of a lead pencil and four iiches.long, with a white metal mouth piece and a tiny bowl...

Novelist The Mystery of the Inn; or, THE DISCOVERY IN THE HIDDEN CHAMBER. A STORY OF TREACHERY, CRIME, AND REMORSE. By Anna Catharine Green. Author of "The Leavenworth. Case," 'Behind Closed Doors," etc. &nbsp; CHAPTER XXI.-(Continued.) With the politeness we are accustomed to in Frenchmen the new marquis ob- served : "'You are welcome, Isidor ; ' and then, as if struck himself by the incongruity between this phrase and the look and manner of his companion, he added, in slow tones—even if you do bring a sword with you.' "The other, the real marquis, as I sup- &nbsp; pose, seemed to hesitate at this, and I began to hope that he was ashamed of his dreadful threats, and would speedily beg the other's pardon. But I did not know the man or realise the determination which lay at the bottom of his furious and uncompromising words. But he soon made it evident to us. "'Louis,' he exclaimed, 'you have al- ways been my evil genius. From our childhood you have stood in my way wi...

SPORTS AND PASTIMES. CRICKET MEMS. A'"O'COBG II ILG'`V: 1T;Z1rERN. SSaturday afternoon saw the continu :ance of the match between Coburg and rMalvern for the third day,. and the 'weather being fine the attendance was large. A number of ladies graced the ground with their presence, and the Malvern hoys als t brought with them a good complement of the fair sex to cheer them on to victory in their struggle for Boyle and Scott's cup. Whether their presence was accountable for the run of luck whlich the visitors had remains un-, told, but certainly the marvellous down fall of the locals was unaccountable. On the previous Saturday Coburg had made 8 runs without the loss of a wicket, and it was confidently anticipated by sup porters that a good stand would be made. Such, alas! proved not the case, and as wi.ket after wicket. fell in. quick succession, barrackers grew glum, and the hearts of followers sad. :At' four o'clock even the gallant .captain, Ramsay Mailer, had succumbed to the bow....

CORRESPONDENCE. THE ECLIPSE CUP. Sir,-Allow me, through the medium of, your columns, to draw attention to I some very unsatisfactory decisions that I were awarded to the Post-office and Railway United against the Wanderers t at Coburg, last Saturday week. On i making inquiries I learned that a great I deal of rivalry exists between these two t combinations, who profess to be great t guns at the old English game, and I am informed are both playing for the above-named trophy. Being in the habit of witnessing first-class cricket played and decisions given that would call for no argument whatever as to being corract or otherwise, I think it only fair, sir, in justice to the team that had the misfortuue to suffer and score a defeat, to bring an underhand action to light., as such is alleged to be the case in this match. I was told that the Pout-,flice club, having no umpire on: the ground or anyone that was willing t to act, the opposing team soon settled that difficulty by getting ofio ...
