COBURG WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL. THE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
COBURG WESLEYAN SUN DAY ;iSCHOOL. THE EXHIBITION. During the early portion of last week the public hall, Coburg, was the scene of unusual 'activity, and the ctrious, peering in, might for the nonce have imagined themselves amid all the surroundings of a quaint old fashioned English village, though of rather Lilliputian dimensions. Many willing hands were busily at work and the cause and effect of all this labor was displayed to the general pub lic on Thursday afternoon, when the doors were thrown open and the cere mony of opening an exhibition in con nection with the Coburg Wesleyan Sunday School was performed by J.W. Eggleston, Esq. At three o'clock on Thursday after noon, a goodly number of ladies and gentlemen had assembled, including the Revs. R. Fitcher and A. Jolly, ministers of the circuit, and the pro ceedings commenced with the singing of the Old i-lundredth, which was read by the Rev. A. Jolly. At its termina tion, the Rev. R. Fitcher offered up prayer, and Mr. J. W. Eggle...

Human Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
IIHunianu Lovc. No one who bas looked into life with honest eyes can have failed to discover that it derives untold values from the love which welcomes its dawn, attends its growth, and advances step by step and soothes and cheeor its old age. lHuman love is itself a pearl of great price. How it enlarges, enriches, and ennobles life I What benelicent ministries it ojnducts 1 What patient heroism and severe self-suppression it inspires l In a mother it is faith and hope and patience and tffort and victory. In young hearts it is a transform. ing gladnees, an awakening in the responsi bility and to the rapture of life, In man hood and womanhood it is the balm of care, a refuge in temptation, and e. source of serenity.
A TASMANIAN DARLING. SENT UP FOR A CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
A TASMANIAN DARLING. SENT UP FOR A CHANGE. A.A rough looking girl named Emily 'Hblmer, aho appeared to be about i8 years of age,; came before the Bruns wick: Court on Wednesday. charged with, having no lawful visible means of support." She faced the bench with an air bfononchalance, and seemed to care little for the evidence.given and the unenviable reputation recorded against heriby the police: I From the particulars given itappeared that the accused hailed from the neigh iborhood of Launceston, where, being of a wild disposition, she wvas taken in charge by the Salvation Army. Hoping that a change in her life might be effected by her removal from old asso ciations and vicious companions, the authorities of the Army had her brought over to this colony, but very little good was the result. On three successive occasions did she make her escape from the Home, and finally she came to be regarded in the light of an incorrigible. Constable Seddon stated that she was the companion of larr...
The Mind and the Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
The Mlind iad the Life. The mind. is lIrgcly dependent for itil strength;.and clearntss of vision upoh the purity of the life. It is true that a man hhould know what is right in order to do right; but it is also true that he must be in the habit of doing right in order to make such knowledge of any practical value. For example, one who is ncaustomed to live isedly and to avoid whatever he believes in jurious learns one day through a reliable ecurce that a certain article of diet of which he is lend, or a certain habit that he has acquired, is deleterious, and he at once dis continues it. Another, accuetomed to eelf indulgence, receives the same instruction, and makes no change in his conduct. The intellect of each has been apgpeald to alike, and their knowledge of the point in ques tion is equal; but in the one case the habit of right-doing makes it operative, in the other the habit of wrong-doing makes it in opel ative.

THE HOME. In Garden Alleys. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
THE HOME. In Cardcn Alleys. The hollow stump of a tree, when covered with flowers and vines, maies a rustic basket of nature's own fashioning. Fill the opening with rich loam, plant therein a scarlet geranium, a silver-leaved Madam Salleroi, two or three lobeliae, a caltndula or anthemis, with nasturtium vines along the edge to trail over and hide unsightly roughnesses, and you have a garden oroa ment that people will come miles to Ece, as Katieha remarks. Warm weather brings with it a legion of insects who prey on growing plants. Those that gnaw the leaves may be fought with Paris green, very much diluted with water, while those which live by sucking th3 sap, I as the lice or aphides do, must be killed by spraying with kerosene emulsion.

They can, be made by anyone able to use a saw and hammer, as any sort of lumber will answer, covering all its imperfections with a...

Dairy Musings. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
Dairy Jnlsings. The fast milker has the fullest pail. Cleanliness goes before profit in the dairy. The man that figures closely never regrets that he began winter feeding early. The temper of an animal has more to do with its value than has the color of its hair. W\nen you see clubs lying around the barn-yard,look out for cows that have along, dry spell. If you keep a barking dcg or a yelling man in the feed lot, you must have extra measuree in the bins. Ought there not to be a law compelling dairymen to keep their dairies clean, or else to k ep theirproducts at home ? More winter-made butter and less summer production is what is demanded by both the markets and the profit ide of the dairy. Don't talk while milking. You can't milk no faEt: the cow will learn to give down her milk slowly; and the talking excites the cow.. Hooks about the stable, upon which to hang the lantern, are an excellent thing. The lantEn Eet-down is frcqi.ently knocked over, and the straw or hay set on fire.
AGRICULTURE. Oats for Calves. DR. A. S. HEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
AGRICULTURE. Oats for Calves. DB. A. S. tIIT. The most troublesome period with young ealves is that between the weaning from the cow and the time when milk is entirely withdrawn. It has often been asked: " Shall we let the calf suck? How long?" We conclude, from ample experience, that the calf, if well and strong, most quickly, thoroughly, and constantly clears the udder of milk, which if partly removed, by slovenly and imperfect milking, produces caking of the udder. Young calves will early eat fine bay, and next begin to eat a teaspoonful of dry oats." The milk should be given night and morning only, and at noon a few dry oats. To induce the calf to eat them, they may, at first, be very slightly moistened with milk. The oats should-not be put in the milk, for they either.choke the calf, or pass to the fourth stomach unmasticated, where they will not digest. Give the oats on an empty stomach. When the calf is hungry, it readily begins to chew them. By thus sparingly feeding calves,...

Among the Ants. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
Alnong; thle ADnts.; T'he resemblance betweenants and hiumAn beings is not striking to the casual observer, allhoughs a writer is able to adduce quite a number of points upon which subhcli' resoi blance may be maintained. In fact, he saye that their t.raordiniary likeness in many respects to human beings is perhaps the most wonderful thing about them.. To begin with, they live in large cities of their own building; they have a queen in each com munity to whom they show the most loyal respect and devotion ; they have an army of soldiers to protect the busy workersa; they keep slaves; they make use of a certain in. sect called the aphis, much as we make use of cows; they are fond of their homes, and are ready to tight vigorously all invaders; they are careful and tender in cherishing their young; they lay up stores for the win. ter; they are most particular to clear away lubbish from their dwellings;. they even seem to have certain ceremonies on occasions such re a formal funeral.

"COMPELLED TO RETIRE." [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 17 December 1890
"COMPELLED TO RETIRE." Considerable excitement was created at the Richmond watchhouse on Friday' 5th inst. by the receipt of a letter handed to the officer in charge by a' 'Mrs. Naughton, who stated that she had received it from a man named Chilres" Stott, a resident of Brunswick. In this letter the writer adopted a "veiry melahcholy tone, stating that he " was compelled to retire from this world, owing to the conduct of his daughter," and concluding by wishing his friend " Good-bye for ever," as by the time she received the note he " would be gone for ever." The police at Bruns wick were at once communicated with, and informed that Stott had sent his family to Richmond. On proceeding to his residence at Brunswick, however, a notice was found on the knocker, "Out for the Day;" but the officer, after a few minutes, roused Stott up. He seemed to be recovering from the effects of a drinking bout, but had evidently changed his mind about the propriety of "going off to another world." He...
