POETRY. A Springtide Song. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 19 November 1890

POETRY. A Springtile Song. BY DESSIE MAY TODIN. All snugly wrapped in his blanket of night, With a star to pin his nightcanp. King hlclius, as sweetly as you or I might, Was tahking his morning nap, And dreaming, most likely, of Daphne's bright eyes, And the smile so daintily tl.rown In a glance yester e'en as in silvery guise She flitted the west adown. When Io I he heard such a twitter and cheep, Such a chatter and warble and trill As was never before I and up from his sleep lIe arose and peeped over the hill With a fierce eye, and that in a trice, For the best of us must admit To be rudely awaked in such dreams is not nice, Or pleasant, in sooth, a bit. But he looked in amaze I fcr the dingy old earth. Was arrayed in the richest of dresses, While its 'broidered dew-drops alcne were ,full worth The'ransom of forty princesses. And oh I such a marvel of art of a bonnet, Just to match, all of gold and'of green, With whole meadows of daisies and butter cups on it, The like of which ne...

They were attacked, from seven to nine times each by the performers, and some left the ring with as many as thirteen and fourteen darts sticking in their backs and heads.

POPULAR SCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 19 November 1890

POPULAR SCIENCE. A recent writer in the North China Herald   of Shanghai, says that the climate of Asia is becoming colder than it formerly was, and its tropical animals and plants are retreating   southward at a slow rate. This is true of   China, and it is also the case in Western Asia. The elephant, in a wild state, was   hunted in the eighth century B. C. by Tiglath   Pileser, the King of Assyria, near Carche-   atish, which lay near the Euphrates in Syria. Four or five centuries before this. Taothmes   II., King of Egypt, hunted the same animal   near Aleppo. In high antiquity, the elephant   and rhinoceros were known to the Chinese ; they had names for them, and their tusks   and horns were valued. In the time of Con-   fucius, elephants were in use for the army on the Yangtze river. A hundred and fifty years after this, Mencius speaks ...
