POETRY. Waiting for Captain Wright. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 December 1890

POETRY. : Wailing for Captain Wright. ---+o? ?'-?',.,°__ _ ---- BY IosnE POLLior , They said it was only a foolish dream. When I spoke in my girlish way Of a handsome knight, a Captain Wright, Whom I hoped to marry sone day; I paid no heed to the mocking smiles, But carried my head with pride, And felt no fear, for with love sincere He would claim mesoon as his bride. They thought it strange that I did not wed; The reason they could not guess; B?t to none of those who came to propose Was I willing to answer "Yes;" For I felt that somewhere out in tte world, With heart full of love to the brim, Was,someone, you, see, -who was waiting And I was waiting forhira. -nd oft as I moved through the crowded ways My heart would suddenly beat With so rapid a rate, I knew that my mate Had passed me by on the street; knew I should meet my ideal love, And marry him, sure as late, In God's good time-with a faith sublime If I only hadpatience to wait. And so one day we met, as it were, By chance; an...

No Mermald There. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 December 1890

Io Mermald There. HE was leaning against the railing at the terry dock looking decidedly out of sorts when along came an oily, smoothed-faced man, and said: " How are you off " "What for?" "Haven't got a red." Say, can you tell a lie " "I can I" " Then you are the man I want. Old Capt. Smith, of Buffalo, is over in that saloon, and has got a crowd around him. He's a great liar, but always sticks to one aneadote. It is about his vessel being wrecked, and of a mermaidtakinghim in her arms and swimming ashore. Now, then, I want you to go over and sit down and hear the lie out, and when he is through just get up and claim that you are the identical mermaid who saved his usneeless old life. I want to set him back, and it will be fifty cents in your pocket." The matter was aranged, and the pair went over to the saloon. Capt. Smith was feeling good, and in a little time he worked around to remark: "That was a curious thing that happened to me in 1848. Did I ever tell you of the wreck of th...

CELEBRITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 December 1890

CELEBRITIES: It has been a favoriit snlbjct: with statisticians to point out the different callings of mnien calculatd to prejudice I or"',av6r longevity. Thuios:we find it repeatedly asserted that brain work and unroenmiting intellectual labor. necessarily abbreviate life, but, this is not: always borne oit 'by facts. If we take poets we find the immortal bard of Avon called away at 46 in the full development of his genius. He died in the zenith of his fame, conscious of the dawn ' liresaging a sunburst of posthumnious fame." It is impossible to bring the language to a more exqiisite degree of perfection than Shakespeare did. In him we hind its most rythmic genius, the acutest intellect, the profoundest imagination confined in one man, who truly " held the mirror up to nature." In tile faunous lines of Dr, Johnson : Each change of many coloured life he drew; Exhanusted worhl, and then imuginled new, Existence saw hint spurn her honde.l reign.

About the Hearth. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 December 1890

About the Hiearth. Before one begins house cleaning, one ought to be sure that all necessary appliances are at hand. There should be plenty of stout tacks, screws and 'nails, carpet paper and cord for picture hanging. ior carpets clean newspapers are beat and less likely to gather moths. Then one, will want plenty of large, soft clothe white and colored, one's favorite soap or powder, soft water--if hard must be used it is well to use a little borax and soft paper for polishing window panes. Light. strong tack hammers `are. indis pensable, and paste is; quite sure to be needed. A celebrated German remedy for burns consists of fifteen ounces of the beet white glue, broken into small pieces in two pints of water, and allowed to become soft; then dissolve it by. means of a water bath, and add two ounces of gly:erine and six drama of carbolic acid; continue the heat until thoroughly 'dissolved.- On cooling this hardens to an elastic mass covered with a shining, parchment.like skin, anid...

Superstition About Storms. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 3 December 1890

Superstition About Stormis. , Caverns were supposed by the Romans to be secure places of refuge during thunder storms, and they believed that lightning never penetrated more than two yards into the earth. Acting on this superstition, the Emperor Aegustua used to withdraw into come deep vualt of the palace whenever:a tempest was feared, and it is recorded by Suetonums that he always wore a skin of seal arouhd his body as a protection against lightning. That both precautions are equally unavail ing needs scarcely to be mentioned. Lightning has been known to strike ten feet into the earth ; but not even the mar vellous accuracy of modern ecience can de termine at whit distance from the surface a safe retreat may be found from the descend ing fluid ; and even were this ascertained, the denAcrs from ascending electric currents remain the same. With regard to seal-skins we find that the ,Romans attached so much faith to them as non-conductors that tents were made of them, beneath which th...
