Chocolate. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 10 December 1890

Chocolate. Pure and wholly genuine chocolate is a rare thing in the market, and, in fact, may be said not to be found there at all. It is made from the kernel or bean of the Theo- bioma Cacao a brown seed which is known in commerce as the "cocoa bean." These beans contains, as their principal constituent an oil called cocoa butter, which is so valuable as a medicine that it is expressed from the beans and sold by itself and a cheaper land poorer oil is substituted for it in making the chocolate. " Cocoa nibs" are the cocoa beans, crushed without being ground, and these are more likely than any other form to furnish a genuine chocolate to the purchaser, as the ground chocolate is adulterated with various ground nuts and other cheaper material. In making good chocolate, the fruit containing the beans first buried in the ground till the pulp is decayed. The beans are then roasted, the shells removed, and the kernels are ground between stones, the heat caused by the friction melting the...

Ideas of the Arabians. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890

Ideas of the Arabians. The general opinion of a traveller is, that he is either a lunatic or a magician; a lunatic, if, on closely watching his move ments, they discover he pays little attention to things around him, a confirmed lunatic, if he goes out sketching, and spends his time in spoiling good paper with scratches and hieroglyphics; and a magician, when in quisitive about ruins, and given to picking up stones and shells, gathering sticks and leaves of brushes, or buying up old bite of copper, iron and silver. In these cases, he is supposed, by aid of his magical powers, to convert stones and shells into diamonds of immense price; and the leaves and sticks are charms, by looking at which he can bestow comforte upon his friends, and snakes and peatilence upon his lucicess enemies. If a traveller pick up a stone and examine it carefully, he will be sure to have at his tail a host of malapert little boys deriding him, though keeping at a very respectful distance, in deference to h...

Life in Japan. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890

Life in Joaprn.* Tn Tokio there is a large government paper-making and money-printing establish ment, where hundreds of laborers and opera tives are engaged. In connect:on with the works there is an eating-house, where food is supplied to all who desire to obtain their reals on the promises. The scale of prices for a meal is from a penny to threepence. The lowest wages paid is fiveperce a day. It will be seen that a laborer working for the smallest stipend can get all the food required for a small proportion of his earnings. All the operatives in this establishment are good specimens of what Japanese food will do in the way of sustaining strength and robust health. No more healthy set of men and women or youths can be seen in any part of the world; none more capable of en during the strain and drain upon the system that continuous labor entails. The writer has taken the trouble to ascer tain the measurement of the lower limb of a number of the draught coolies in Yokohama, and he is ...

Wright, hon. treasurer, in celebra tion of his recent marriage. Members to the number of about 50 assembled in the public hall, where the tables had been nicely laid out with light refresh. ments.

THE GLOBE TROTTER. Stanley's Pygmies. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890

7HE GLOBE TROTTER. Stanley's Pygnmies. In his recent address in London before the Royal Geographical Society,Mr. Stanley gave an interesting account of the pygmies in. bhabiting the great forest through which he travelled, who were known to exist by the Father of Poets nine centuries before the Chrietian era. Nearly a year ago we found them where they had been located by tradition under the names of W\atsa and Wambutti. We were just now paying due reverence to the kings of the forest who were born before the foundations of the tower on Shinar plain were laid, and because it seemed to us that in their life they united prehistoric times to this society journal loving ninetCenth cen tury. Let us pause a moment and pay honor to these little people who have out lived the proud Pharaohs of Egypt, the choecn people of Palestine, and the emperors of IBbylon, Ninevtli, Persia, and the Mace donian and Roman empires. They have actually been able to hold their lands for over fifty centuries. I ...

The Great End. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890

The Great End. It is not upon wealth or material re sources, not upon bodily health, or freedom, or knowledge, much less upon any narrower Sand lees comprehensive object of desire, that we must fix our minds as being the corner eione of prosperity. Valuable as they are, I they are but instruments; and the hand that is to wield them ischaracter. We must have no smaller end in view than' human excel lence. Then the various advantages that we now crave for themselves we shall prize for their power to contribute to this great end; and, while our efforts to acquire them may not be lessened. our power to use them in the interest of a higher purpose will be greatly enhanced. . .

Where Kissing is Unknown. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890

here Kiissing is Iukuon wn. As a sign of affection, kissing was un known to the Australians, the New Zea landers, the Papuans, the EEquimnau, and other racee. The Polynesians and the Malays always sit down when speaking to a superior. The inhabitants of Mallicollo, an island in the Pacific Ocean, show their ad. miration by hissing; the Esquimaux pull a person's nose as a compliment; a Chinaman puts on his bat where we take it off, and among the same curious people a coffin is considered as a neat and appropriate present for an aged person, especially if he is in bad health.
