Aphorisms. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

Aphorisms. Ir a man does not make new friendships as he advances through life he will soon find himself left alone. A man should keep his friendship in constant repair.-Johnson. * AnvensTrr is the trial of principle. With. out it a man hardly knows whether he is honest or not.-Fielding. To be angry, is to revenge the fault of others upon ourselves.-Pope. He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent, who can sunit his temper to any circumstancees. Hume. In private conversation between friends, the wisest men very often talk like the weakest; for, indeed, the talking of a friend is nothing else but thinking aloud.-Addison. OrT the aloud that wraps the present hour serves but to brighten all our future days. William Browne. Since brevity is the soul of wit and tedious. .nes the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief.--bakespeare.

A Few Quotations. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

A Few Quotations. To illustrate the absurdity of substituting the lady for woman in all instances, the fol lowing quotations are made to serve as the proverbial horrible example : Man that is born of a lady is of a few days, and full of trouble. A noble lady, nobly planned. Frailty, thy name is lady. Man's love is of man's life a thing apart; 'tis lady's whole Sexi-lance. \Vlen lovely lady stoups to folly. Believe a lady or an epitaph. Wilt thou take this lady to be thy wedded wife? Oh, lady. in our hours of ease. Passing the love of ladies. My only books were ladies' looks. Hell hath no fury like a lady Pnorned. Ophelia: 'Tie brief, my lord. Hamlet: As ladyj'slove. What mighty ills have not been done by a lady? Who was't betrayed the capitol? A lady. Who lost Mara Antony the world? A lady. Many other quotations might be made to show the dignity of woman; but it is not necessary, our char lady tells us.

CUP DAY. t PIONIC PARTIES ORGANISING. s Tuesday next will be celebrated as z Cup Day, and "what to do" and "where s to go" are the general questions hat I are being discussed this week. Of course whilst many hundreds in the dis trict will away to Flemington to see the great event, there will still be hundreas more who care not for the crush and excitement always attendant on the main day of the spring meeting and who will seek some other means of enjoyment. Picnics and picnicing parties are being arranged and formed all over the place; the nice Joung man is arranging to take the sweet young love on the bay excursion steamer, and the beardless boy with "tlhe pride of his eye" will hie away to some less costly means of amuse ment. Amongst Sunday schools the usual country excursion. have been prepared for.hy the seniors, and those who do not hold their regular children's fete at this time of the year will form parties among the elder scholars and gang awa'yto soim ] sweet sequestered n...

Devices of Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

Devices of Criminals. A sojourner in Calcutta, while on a visit to the presidency gaol, was shown a heavy lead bullet about three-quarters of an inch in diameter. This was found on an habitual thief and was being used to form a pouch or bag in the throat for secreting money, jewele, &e., in the event of his being searched. The ball is put into the mouth >?d is allowed to slide down gently until it reaches some part near the epiglottis, where it is held in posi tion, and is kept there for about half an hour ata time. This operation is repeated many times daily, and gradually a sort of pocket is formed, the time being longer or shorter ao cording to the size of pocket required. In some cases six months have been sufficient, in others a year, while in some cases two years are necessary. Such a pouch as this last is capable of holding ten rupees, about the size of ten florins. The thief, therefore, can undergo search, and nothing being found he goes away with the spoil in his...

Oysters on Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

Oysters on Trees. Business recently called me to Honduras, and I have just returned well pleased with my trip. I had often heard of oysters grow. ing on the trunks and branches of trees groves of living green umbrageous trees, with oysters growing upon them-and my friend and I set aside one day to investigate the fact. Our dory cut the water like a knife and elipged along rapidly and easily, with hardly a ripple in her wake, and in about half an hour we had left the site of the town with its convent and shipping and soldier's barracks away behind us. We were then nearly abrenet of an island called Moho Caye. The front fi it is embowered in gracerful cocoanut trees, and the back part trends off into swamp and is covered with a dense growth of the red mlargrove. This mangrove tree grows in either fresh or salt water swamps, and even in water three or four feet deep. The limbs of the trees send shoots or roots down into the water, and thus a thicket of mangroves is a matted mass of tru...

BURGLARY AT COBURG. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

BURGLARY AT' COBURG. During Friday nignt the dwelling of Mr W. J. Turner, musician, at Coburg was the scene of a daring descent by housebreakers. The family retired about 10 o'clock, and were not awakened until 6 Saturday morning. It was then ascertained that entrance had been gained through the bathroom .window and 10 sovereigns, two gold bracelets, a gold chain, and other property valued at upwards of S68 bad been carried away through the back garden. It is evident that a systematic raid was con ducted, but it seems that a puzzling feature is the fact that drawers were ransacked and boxes burst open indis criminately without disturbing the sleepy inmates. The local police now have the case in hand.

The weather was chilly, and an officer remarked to the prince that the water was far too cold tobe pleasant. He suggested therefore that the order should be annulled. Without a word, Prince Henry, who was on the: bridge, sprang thence into the sea, swam to the Jacob's ladder astern, climbed on board again, and mounting to the bridge, said to the officer, " Do you say so now ?" There was no reply, and the prince, in?.ead of going below to change, remained on the bridge in h...

Now this very ldriosity.,absurd as it sometimes apipears, is bne of. the beat reasons for beginning the sttidy of the naitral sciences early in life. There are other reasons. I The scientific student must have plenty of two very rare things, time and patience. Of course the child has more of the first than anybody else. There is nothing to prevent its (his?) playing with its pets and watching their habits, dredging brooks in true ecien. tifi fashion. picking flowers, chasing butter flies, and hunting birds' nests to its heart's content. It is well supplied with the second. If you doubt it, try to hurry a child past the tractions of menagerie show bills. An ant hill or a spider's web will furnish it half a day's amusement. It will watch a treed squirrel as long as a trained hunting dog, knd a ratbhole as long as a cat. j It has all the ardor ...

LITTLE FOLK. Baby in Church. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

: LITTLE rFOLK. Baby in -Church.--- . Aunt Nelli had fashioned a dainty thing Of Hamburg and ribbon and lace, And mamma had said, as she fastened it round " d Our beautiful baby's face, Where the dimples play and the laughter lies Like sunbeams hid in her violet eyes, " If the day is pleasant and baby is good, She may go to church and wear her new hood." Then Ben, aged six, began to tell, In elder-brotherly way, How very, very good she must be If she went to church next day. He told of the church, the choir and the crowd, And the man up in front who talked so loud; But she must not talk, nor laugh, nor sing, But just sit asquiet as anything. And so, on a beautiful Sabbath in May, When the fruit-buds burst into flowers, (There wasn't a blossom on bush or tree So fair as this blossom of ours.) All in her white dress, dainty and new, Our baby sat in the family pew. The grand, sweet music, reverent air, The solemn hush, and the voice of prayer Filled all her baby soul with awe, As she s...

Not Apprechensive. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

Not Apprehensive. At a dear old lady's recent birthday party was her eldest son. As the old lady was celebrating her centennial and the son was eighty years old, they made a remarkable couple. Tha mother, in spite of her years, was so strong and vigorous, both mentally and physically, it seemed almost incredible that she had rounded out a full century of existence, and her son had been absent from her for several years. The meeting between them had been very affectionate, and they had remained close to each other during the son's stay. When the time came for him to go he embraced his mother, saying wist fully: " Well, mother, I suppose this is the last time I shall ever see you." The mother looked up astonished, and asked : "* Why, dear, what's the matter?. Don't you feel well ?"

Apples as Medicine. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

Apples as1 Medicine. Chemically, the apple is composed of vege table fibre, albumen, sugar, gum; chlorophyll, malia acid, gallic acid lime and much water. Furthermore, the German analysts say that the apple contains a larger percentage of phosphorus than eny other fruit or vegetable. This phosphorus is admirably adapted for re newing the essential nervous matter, lethicin, of the brain and spidal cord. It is, perhaps, for the ame reason, rudely understood, that old Scandinavian traditions represent the apple as the food of the gode. who, when they felt themselves to be growing feeble and in firm, reeorted to this fruit for renewing their powers of mind and body. Also, the acids of the apple are of signal use for men of seden tary habits, whose lives are eluggieh in ac tion; those acids serving to eliminate from the body noxious matters, which, ii retained, would make the brain heavy and dull, or bring about jaundice or skin eruptions and other allied troubles. Some such an experienc...

The Peddler's Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890

The Peddler's Story, By A L. L M. Some years ago I was travelling in a wild I part of the country, not more than half cultivated; -the inhabitants were much like the land, rough and uncouth to the last de gree. You might follow roads for miles which were little better than waggon tracks, and see only now and then a log house, with a rude chimney built up against it, inhabited by a man and his wife with half a score of tow-headed children. Occasionally one passed a cluster of houses, dignified by the name of a village, in which there was a grocery and a tavern, between which places the male in habitants spent half their time, talking local gossip and the stale news of the day, and drinking tanglefoot whisky. One afternoon toward nightfall I entered a village of this kind. I had had a long day's tramp; my pack was heavy, and I felt completely worn out. Entering the small tavern I inquired if I could be entertained for the night, and received an affirmative answer from the ill-favored ...
