POETRY. What Matters It? [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890
POETRHY. tWha;t Mattcrs It? What matters it, my curious fIind, where lies Our heavenly harbor and cur land of rest? Whether it be be)ond azure skies Or in some lower world, God kncweth beet, It offers safety from our cares,and so What matters whether it be high or low. It offers rest; what more should mortals know? Rest from the weariness of burdened days, Of bitter longing and evil hours, Of duties leading us through darkened ways And into efforts far beyond our powers, Of dark temptations into secret sin, Of constant labor, earth's grand gands to win, Of spirits deafened by the strife and din. It matters nothing as to when and where We find the haven and the welcome home; Let curious doubt give place to trusting prayer, And no weak soul through speculation roam, We seek for sealedaup secrets, hidden things; Enough for us if, on eternal wings, We reach tbo cuntry of those better things. , 'Vex not thy spirit, oh I aspiring man, But live thy days as earnest workers must, Nor try to ...

FUNNIOSITIES. A Regular Boy. He was not at all particular i: To keep the perpendicular; While walking he either' skipped or jumped, He stood upon his head awhile And, when he went to bed, awhile He dove among the pillows, which he thumped. Heo never could keep still a bit; The lookers on thought ill of it; He balanced on his ear the kitahen broom, And did some nice trapezing, Which was wonderfully pleasing, On every peg in granpa'e barness room. From absolute inanity The cat approached insanity To see him slide the banister so rash. Bat once cn that mahogany, While trying to toboggan, he Upset his calculations with a crash. And since that end disaster He has gone about in plaster Not Paris, like a nice Italian toy But the kind the doctor uees, When the bumps and cuts and bruiaes Overcome a little, regular, live boy.

VARIETIES. Out With the Tide. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890
VARIETIES. Out With the Tide. Out with the tide on its silent march, Out with the winds as they unseen blow, But what far country the sout may reach, Who that remains, in this state ehall know ? The tides and the winds shall both return, For, born of theoearth, they're but its slaves, Yet they tell us not of the souls wept forth, And left but dust in our empty graves. WVen re blind and deal and dumb as the stone, Dail matter enfolds us in bands like steel, And all of our wisdom seems earthly and dark, When measured with lore a soul might reveal. In with the tide and out with the tides, And borne with the winds as they speed along, We float with the cadence that comes and goes, The broken strains of a passing song. We live in the mesh of a mighty net,. Where we toil and strive in a troubled stream; And the stream is Time, and the net is L:fe, That binds our souls like a transient dream. Out with the tides and in with the'tides,. Like bubbles that float on a stormy:eea, Ab I who that ...

True Union in the Family. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890
Triue Union ii tile Family. There is no sadder eight than a family of growing bore and girls, or gro~wn up young men and womer, accepting coolly and care lessly every form of sacrifice and favor from loving, anxious parents, who are wearing out their lives in their service and reaping only ingratitude and indifference in return. Let every parent guard against such a state of things by the far more real kindness of training the children from firet to last to share with them in the reeponeibilitiet, the labors, the sacrifices, the economies, as well as in the pleasures and comforts of the household. Only in this way can a family be truly united, and filial sympathy and gratitude be thoroughly developed. Tun Japanese are an extremely tidy people, and fold, brush, and put away theireherished dresses with a neatness which would charm and teach even an English country lady.

THE ORPHAN LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890
THEL OBRPHN LAMB. Deep in the wood the purple violet hides, The fragrant primrose smiles from out its leaves, W hile through the vale the silver river glides, And heaven's own azure on its breast re ceives. The voice of spring is ;breathing o'er the world, Calling the blossoms out upon the trees; Her flower-embroidered banner is unfurled, And scatters perfume on the wandering breeze. ..lad larks are. singing_ all the livlong day, As, to and fro, 'twixt earth and heaven they pass, And in the lields the merry lambs at play Skip, round their fleecy mothers on the grass. But one wee lamb the shepherd's daughter, Grace, Found by its dying mother; still and cold Lay the poor ewe, and stirred not from its place From henceforth to be empty in the fold. So gentle Grace, with kind and loving care, Soothing the little creature's vain alarms Wholly to rest-the orphan lamb will bear, Sheltered within her strong and tender armus. Grace has been taught from early youth to be : Gentle to all things...

THE HOME. Cutting and Arranging Food. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890
nT/E HOME. Cutting and Arranging Food. It pays to be nice about it. Ncver use any but the broad knife to slice bread, and if poessible cut no more than is actually needed. It is a good plan to follow the modern i icshion of "slice as wanted," though this nay" savor of stinginess to our country motheis. Alot of bread to dry is not econo mical. It does not add to the attractiveness of the table, especially if a lot of crumbs are allowed to remain, hence we say cut juest enough. See to it also that your knife is habrp, or the slices will be ragged and irregular. Evenly cut slices, not too thick or too thin, are more tempting. In cutting a pie that is to grace the table beforo serving, it is well to bring geometrical fitness to bear. 'The eye and a little trained carefulness will generally do it. A chicken pie so cut that some pieces are a third larger ith'an oters is not illustrative of this carefulness.. in the cutting of p.es, as all other things, it is a good plan to do it well. AA ...
