Ingenious Hode of Tying Horses. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
Inl:t c iotis ult Utdt of ITnijt dforscs Tho fccflader, have a curious custom, and n most cf.tetuhl one of prevrnting Iorsoie from Ettraing, which is pcculiar to this island.

The Pace of the Camel. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
Tihe Pace of the Camel. As a matter of fact, in spite of its having carried Mohammed in four leaps from Jeru ,alem to Mecca, seven miles an hour isthe crmel's limit; nor can it maintain this rate over two hours. Its usual speed is live miles an hour-a slow pace beyond which it is dangerous to urge it, let, Es Asiatics any, it might break his heart and die lite rally on the spot. When a camel is pressed beyond tihia speed, and is spent, it kneels ..own, and net n!l the wolsrc in Asia will :ake it budge nasin.

A QUESTION. To the Editor of the Leader. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
A 4QUESTION . To the Editor of the Leader. . .Sir- I seek lor a small apace in your valuable paperIto aslk aquestion of the Rev: R.e Fitcher, who; preached in the WVesleyan Church on Sunday evening last. I do not often visit the Wesleyan Church, but on this occasion I occupied a back seat among the hearers. The text was taken from the 3rd chapter of St. John's Gospel. The embodiment of the sermon, I understand, was " Re generation," from which ,good informa tion was given. Mr. Fitcher spent much time in explaining what Regenera tion was, and What it was not. In one clause ,of the sermon' he stated to his hearers that Baptism is not Regeneras tion, and I do not think any of his hearers will dispute that fact. But the point I wish to arrive at is this : Mr. Fitcher stated that three forms of Baptism are Scriptural, viz.: Sprinkling, Pouring, or Immersion. But the rev. gentleman forgot to state whether sprinking was intended for infants or for believers. Of course it is not ex pected t...
BLIND ASYLUM CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
BLIND ASYLUM CONCERT. One of the popular concerts of vocal and instrumental music by the band and choir of the Victorian Asylum and School for the Blind, was given in the public hall, Bell-street, Coburg, on Wednesday evering. The president, Cr. Kelly, occupied the chair, but the attendance was numueically small. This is much to be regretted, but is probably due to the fact that more prominence was given to the entertainment at Brunswick than at Coburg, and that many were unaware of its occurrence until other engagements had been made. Despite the small attendance the pro gramme was adhered to throughout, and those who did attend had the pleasure of listening to capital singing and excellent instrumental music. The old favorites, Miss Rauler, Miss Wilson, Mr. Taylor and many others were again to the fore, and the performers throughout met with the hearty approbation of the audience. The programme was as follows :-Part 1: chorus, "The Viutager:s Evening Song," Choir; piano duett, " M...

THE DOGOLOGY. Quite a wail of lamentation Rises from this township fair, (Gnashing teeth and great vexation) Talk of vengeance fills the air. Direful threats and modest curses, Sundry growls andl solemn swears; Every man you meet disburses Men of consequential airs. And the cause of all this growling Imprecations not divine Sullen looks and faces scowling Is the death of pets canine. Done to death. Anticipation *- Of their fate ne'el rose to view; By a gun's manipulation Out their brains some man quick blew.

Pay of Chinese Servants. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
Pay. of Chinese Servants. A rich. man's servant in China gets no salary, yet many are the applicants; while big salaries are paid to servants of the common people, but few mcke applications. The perqruisitcs of the former often more than triple the salaries of the latter, which is the sole.rearon of these dlffereces.

A Petrified Man. (AN EXTRACT FROM AN AMERICAN JOURNAL.) [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 26 November 1890
SrPectrified Mt ' --- .-- (A\ ExTNACT FrPOt Ao t""..O::c Rfo aL;: x.) Our Australian cousins have got a novel eensation in the form of a petrified man, and it is clear that they place great store'by, the new.acquisition. The remains, of a person long deceased, would not, as a rule, fetch any very extravagant eum in the market; but it is evident that thispartioular specimen of the genus homo possesses an excep. tionally high value in the eyes of his Aeetroiian discoverers. A man who has been literally turned to stone--a real human bcing, not a mere carved or sculptured statute, whose body and limbs, nevertheless, consist in every part of eulid rock-may not be entitled to be called of the stone age, yet he is a curiosity of sufficient interest to make the fortune of any showman who may get poseeesion of him. Hence it is that the first public appearanceof the stone man: in the law courts of the capital of New South Wale,. This petrified fellow creature begun to find work for the lawyer...
