HYGIENE. How Beauty is Often Had. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890
How BesautyL s Often -Had. Beauty of face oi?igure is of short duration' where good health'is missing. The young girl in the glory and pride of her first sweet youth, does not accept this truth. Htr mirror gives back to her rounded contoues and creamy hues of white and pink, or clear, olive tints,' and she tarns away from the croaker with a smile and shrug. ] "I am Eure my complexion is fair enough ; and I am plump and fat, brt I'm not a bit strong." But listen, dear girls-you, who have had dyspepsia for "ever so long"; ycu, who have no appetite for anything bat sweets and con diments and eat only when you fancy; and I you, who cannot walk fast, or run up and down stairs without that terrible beating of the hear; I-there is a day after to-day. It is one of the gifts of youth that it often re sists for a long time the evil effects of nn sanitary habits. It is one of its delightful I illusions that it is immortal. But let us be sensible and look forward a little. The doctor says you a...
Messenger Birds. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890
Milessenger Birds. Swallows are being trained as messengers in France. Recent experiments at Roubaix prove that swallows can carry despatches quite as well as pigeons, and the scheme is now to be officially tested at Lille by a go. vernment expert. It the trials are eatisfac tory, a swallow eet will be established at Mount Valerien, near Paris. Carrier pigeons will be extensively used during the coming German army marmuvres, at Emperor Wil liam's special request.
Reliable Prophets. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890
Beliable Prophets. An ivory billiard ball is an excellent barometer. It always rolls slow and with difficulty over the cloth when it is going to rain. Ivory is so sensitive to changes of temperature, particulasly from dry to moist, that the efleot is felt almost instantaneously. The cuoe will get cranky, too, when there is going to be a change, long before the damp. ness is perceptible in any other way. Another peculiarity of the ivory globes is their tendency to become .gg-ehaped. They contract at what are called the top and bot tom poles and swell out at the sides. They are very susceptible to draughts, which crack the ivory and cause it to chip off. Study the behavior of a billiard ball, and you can rival the clerk of the weather himself.

Pot and Furnace. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890
Pot flsct Furn'nlace. Tne Corean frying pot is a combination of pot and furnace. The furnace is built inside the pot, or the pot constructed around the furnace, whichever way you have a mind to look at it. These two parts are in one piece and rest on an open stand. The furnace has holes in the bottom for draught, and the lid of the pot has an opening in it for the month or chimney of the furnace. The contrivance is made of green micaceous stone, blackened and polished. Tex, rather than give, the tone of the company you are in. If you have parts you will show them more or lees upon every sub ject; and if you have not you had better talk sillily upon a subject of other people's than your own choosing. Go our and get the air. Ah, if you knew what was in the air. See what your robust; neighbor, who never feared to live in it, has got from it; strength, cheerfulness, power to convince, heartiness and equality to each event. Envy cannot be hidden. It acouses and judges without proofs; its...
Novelist. The Mystery of the Inn; OR, THE DISCOVERY IN THE HIDDEN CHAMBER. A STORY OF TREACHERY, CRIME, AND REMORSE. CHAPTER XXIL.—(CONTINUED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 29 October 1890
The Mystery of the Inn; OR, THE DISCOVERY IN THE HIDDEN CHAMBER. A STORY OF TREACHERY, CRIME, AND REMORSE &nbsp; By Anna Catharine Green, Author of "The Leavenworth Case," "Behind Closed Doors," etc. &nbsp; CHAPTER XXII—(Continued) &nbsp; &nbsp; I promised him a view that would certainly delight him. As the garden was plainly visible from the oak parlor, you can readily understand to what view I alluded. But he had no sus- picion of my meaning, and followed me with some reluctance. But his aspect changed materially when, in walking up and down the paths, I casually remarked: "This is the least inhabited side of the inn. Only one room is occupied, and that by two foreigners—Madame and Mademoiselle Letellier. Yet it has a pleasant outlook, as you yourself can see." "Is she—are they behind those win- dows?" he asked, with an impetuosity I could not but admire in a man with so much to recommend him to the considera- tion of others. " I beg your pardon," h...

And now, suddenly, without warning or prepara tion, he heard from these judicial lips this terrifying prognosis. "Poor boy," continued the doctor, " what have you been doing 1" "Nothing that I know of," stammered Anatole, much agitated. " Rlonsack your memory.

Owing: to the very sloppy condition of the wicket: play was not resumed till nearly four. o'clock. The two not out men for the Coburg, Ernie Bateman and McDonald; took their places at the wickets to' the bowling of Klemm and . Rainsford. McDonald started off splendidly;:with brilliant leg strokes and got into double figures in very quick timne. Batemsan; on the other hand, batted very loose, and seemed very uncomfortable during his short duration at the uprights; ultimately he was cleaned bowled by " trimmer from Rainsford after scoring. 13.

Facts About Africa. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 November 1890
Facts About Africa. Stanley opened the gateway to the.Congo Valley, and introduced an era of geographi cal sensations and surprises unequalled since the discovery of America. For five years every mail from the Congo has brought new facts for the maps, and every year has for nished its remarkable surprises. The river, which eleven years ago was not elassed among the large rivers, we know now is second only to the Amazon in the volume it pours into the sea. Its resistless out-flow is not for a moment interropted by the Atlan tie tides, and though they invade it as an undercurrent at its very mouth fresh water can always be dipped from its yellow sor face. Two tributaries have been explored the' Mobangi and the Casei-which are longer than any rivers in Europe except the Volga and the Danube. For great distances in its middle course the river is twenty miles wide, and midway in the stream, where islands do not intervene, a water horizon bound the vision on every side. The Bayanei native...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 November 1890
STDNEY SJrITn has given uo the following recipe for making everyday happy : When you rise in the morning, form a resolution to make the day a happy one to a fellow creature. It is easily done; a left-off gar ment to the man who needs it, a kind word to the sorrowful. an encouraging exprersion to the striving, trifles in themselves as light as air, will do it, at least for the 24 boors; and if youen are young, depend upon it, it will tell when you are old, and if you are old, it will send you gently and happily down the stream of human time to eternity. By the most simple and arithmetical sum, look at the result You send one person, only one, happily through the day-that ie 865 in the course of the year; and supposing you live only 40 years after commencing that course of medicine, you have made 14,600 human beings happy, at all events for a time. Now, is not this simple? It is too short for a sermon, too homely for ethics, too easily aso acomplished for you to say : " I would if I c...

Or sound of pastoral reed with oaten stops, Or whistle from the lodge, or village cock Count the night-watohes to his feathery dames, 'Twould be some solace yet, some little cheering, In this close dungeon of innumerous boughs. -Milton.

Poetry. Why? [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 5 November 1890
1poetrp. Why? O patient hands that till the field, That seow abundant seed, And wait to gather in the yield For all thy future need. Why is it, though in enmmer's prime You bear the burning heat, That others come at harvest time And share the golden wheat? O weary feet, why should the way Youn treed be briar-strewn? Why panse ye not, though foul the day, Or fervid glows the noon? Pond, truseting hearts that long have borne So much of loss and pain, I wonder why 'tis thins to mourn, While some rejoice in gain? But life's pathway is long and dark; We cannot see afar; dnd that which seems a dying spark May be a guiding star. Perhaps to hands that work and wait, To hearts that burdens bear, Will come reward exceeding great That others cannot share. We know not now hut some glad day, When loosed from care and pain, We walk the bright ethereal way, And joys immortal gain. All doubts and fears will swift depart, Like clouds before the wind; Terre, face to face, and heart to heart, We shall...
