THE MONKEY AND THE FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
THE MONKEY AYDN THEI FEATHER. ` Many years ago, when I was a little girl, I went with. my big brotherGeorge to see the monkeys. h Theyiwer'c noisy things, to be sure. There Ivere?young. 'looking monkeys, old-looking:monkeys ; some with grey cdats, and some with brown. :Their funny antics.imalde us laugh heartily. .Ye'got close to the cage, when down came a monkey very quickly froni his perch, put his paw through the Sbars, add stole the feather firom the top of my hat. He ran up the tree to the top of the cage. Then he put the feather on his own head;, and looked at the :others, as much as to say, "'What a beauty am I !" I thought at first I ought to cry, but whei I saw the funny fellow with the feather on his head, I could not help a good laugh --" Our Little Dots."

A Shlepherd Dog's Joke.: -, AVery Amusing Story of Canine Sagacity I once witnessed a display of intelligence on, the part of a shepherd dog that was remarkable from thbo fact that the trick he performed andenjoyed with seemingly human intelligence, was planned by himself without previousinstruction, and was executed with out assistance. -Hie name was Shep, and he was a hand some animal, with markings of pure white and i?altbrown, a most intelligent head, and a large and beautiful eye that slashed with great spirit.

Once, when at the height of his popularity, he was importuned to become a commercial traveller because he was such a jolly, good fellow. The anecdote, as told by aParisjournal, is as follows: Some' years ago a merchant of Lyons was returning from Paris to his natal city.

You are a good fellow I .You are a charming fellow 1 Can't you talk, though! Come, let us make a trade, will you" " Well, what kindlof a trade 1" "Come and dine with me; at dessert we will s...
Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
Suiijects for Thou?ght. Tut: atmosphere of regret is debilitating, enervating, aephsxiating. It should be avoided by us as we avoid malarial atmo spherep and those saturated with infection, A great purpose will lift. one out of regrets, and, failing a great purpose, many smaller ones will eccomplish the ame. end. In nsch a world as this there is aiways enough altirmative positive good to he done to occupy all one's time and thought and cnergy, all one's capacity of doing and willing. Ir there were no dark places in our lives we should not value the brightness; if there were no failures we should not care for cua cess; if we had no disappointments we )hould have few hopes; and without ad versity prosperity would loee most of its aharm. Attxao all the virtues humility is pre eminent. It is the afest because it is alway.l an anchor; and that man may be truly said to lice the most contented in his call ing who strives to live within the compses of it. IT we were not. so imperfect oursel...

THOSE FORGED PENTRIDGE NOTES. A SPIELER SUSPECTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
THOSE FORGED R E PENT RIDGE NOTESe r ,,ir .A SPIELER SUSPECTED. The .' inding of some io ,or? . I f. lash'' bank-niotes inside the walls of th P??Pen?ridge Prison caused con siderable as'onishment to the officials of that establishment, who have not yet been able to elucidate the mystery as to how they were manufactured under thie strict supervision which maintains throughout that institution. The notes are very clumsily executed, and it is thought that a well-known spielcj. s.%vhoia jýundLý'ra;Pn,ý Pentridge, has something to do with the affair.

The Deadly Cold Bed. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
The Deadly Cold Ired. If trustworthy etatistica could be had of the number of personn who die every year or become permanently diecased from eleeping in dalmp or cold brds, they would probably be astonishing nrd np allinp. It is a peril that constantly bescts Iravelling men, and if they are wice they will invarirably insirt on having their beds aired and dried, even at the rick of causing much trouble to their landlerds. BIut the peril resides in the honle and tihe cold 'epare-room" han Plain its thouesanda of haplee gucFLt and will go on with its slaughter till people learn wisdom. Not only the gurrt but the family often elffer the penalty of eleeping in cold rooms and chilling their bodies at a time when they need all their bodily heet by getting between cold sheets. Even inl warm slmmer weather a cold, damp bed will get in its deadly work. It is a needless peril, and the neglect to pro vide dry rooms and bled has in it the ele ments of murder and suicide.

Children's Parties in Winter. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
Children's Partics in Winter. It is impossible not to recognise that the so-called "pleasure" of a children's party involves a very large measure of excitement, both before and after the event; eo that apart from the exposure to tho ahances of "chill," and improper food ant drink on the odoasion, there is an amount of wear and tear and waste attending these parties, which ought to be estimated, and the estimate can 1 eearcely be a low one. It may sEem un gracious, to strive to put a limit on the pleasures of the young, but it must not be forgotten that early youth is the period of growth and developement, and that anything and everything that caerus special waste of organised material, aithout a compensatory stimulus to nutrition, ought to be avoided. We turn from these to the mental and nerve injuries inflicted on the growing organism. They are certainly not to be disregarded. A perfect storm of excitement rages in the little brain from the moment the invitation has been received, ...
The Clothing of Babies. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 12 November 1890
The Clothinug of Babies. Although I own that children are now more sensibly clothed than was the :case thirty years ago, it is still common to see an infant, who can take no exercise to warm himself, wearing a low-necked, short-sleeved, short-coated dress in the coldest, weather.. The two parts of the body-viz., the upper portion of the chest and the lowerportion of the abdomen-which it is most important to keep from variations of temperature, are exposed, and the child is rendered liable to colds, coughs and luong diseases on the one hand, and bowel complaint on the other. Whet little there is of the dress is chiefly composed of open work and embroidery, eo that there is about as much warmth in itas in a wire sieave, and the socks' accompanying ouch a dress are of cold white cotton, expos ing a cruel length of blue and red leg. I cannot sea the beauty of a pair of livid blue legs, and would much rather behold them comfortably clad in a pair of 'stockings. If the beauty lie in the s...
