When he is ready to paint his book-for the Japanese use a brush and not a pen-the author betakes himeelf to his tiny work-room and sits oh the floor in a flowing garment of brown silk, lined with blue, his legs disposed comfortably under him. In front of him stands a lacquered table,about a foot square, and upon it are his writing materials, which are as idyllic as hiu surroundings-his paper is delicately tinted yellow, with blue lines running up and down. His inkstand is a carved ebony slab, with one end hollowed out for water to rub his cube of Indian ink in, and holds the four or five daintily decorated bamboo brushes which are his pens. Naturally he does not write his novel, hlie paints it. lieginning at the end of the whole, at the left of every page and at the top of every line, straight down between the two blue parallels his small brown hand goes with quick, delicate dark touches.

The rest are Orientals from all parts of Africa, with a good many from Arabia and other parts of Asia. The filst thing that strikes the eye or entering the city is the great charm and norely of seeing nearly all the men and boys dressed in long white or pale blui garments.

They stood beside the pasture-lot, The meadow grass was green; Dlne were the skies, So were her eyes, Toe prettiest ever seen; But now she turned lher bead aside, Just like a wounded dove, And breathed a sigh upon the sly, For he'd never told his love. Ilt'd shared her walLs, he'd shared her drives, Had sent her books and flowers, And lingered late Beside the gate, Nor thought of passing hours, And in a thousand ways or mere BHad such devotion shown, He felt that she must know that he Was in love with her alone. But she was shy, and she was sly, And turned away her face When he essayed To give the maid A comforting embrace. Then,pitying her distress, he said: "My darling and my dove, What can I do to prove to you My deep, enduring love ?" She turned and smiled her sweetest smile, And said, with cheeks aglow : " now could I tell You loved me well If you never told me so ?" And he, as if to make amends For long protracted drought, Sweet kieggs rained, and...

The Care of the Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Ilce Care of the Teetlh. People who properly and regularly clean their teeth have little or no dentistry to do. It is astonishing what ignorance exists among people of all classes and conditions as to what cleanliness of the mouth means. Cleanly habits are part of an individual's education, and can be formed only in child hood. The teeth should be cleansed after each meal and before going to bed. Not much dentrifice is needed - small quill toothpicks are the best. Water used fre quently for rinsing, with a motion of the tongue on all the surface of the teeth and gums. JA.MSErI: "What a wonderful old man De Tanque is for a man who has always been a drunkard." Flamser: "He issomewhat ad. vanced in years, but the cause of it is plain." Jamser : "I don't see it."

This time the thieves chose as the scene of their operations the Moreland station, forcing an entrance by breaking the catch on a back window. They ap peared to have at once directed their energy to an attempt on the iron safe, but owing to the fact that this is em bedded between solid masonry in one of the main walls of the building they were unable to dislodge or force it open. Frustrated in their design, the marauders seized two boxes containing the complete bridal trosseau of a Miss West, a young lady about to be married, and who had just arrived on the previous day from Happy Valicy. The trunks were taken to a plot of ground adjoining the railway station and thoroughly ransacked, the thieves eventually clearing out with a diamond ring and half a dozen silver s...

Women's Estimate of Bachelors. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Women's Estimate of Bachelors. All the women are in league against the bachelor-the married women from sym pathy with their unmarried sisters, and the unmarried from adesire to lessen the number of spinsters. With this league against him, oilensivre and defensive, the unmarried man may find peace in heavenopt he can scarcely hope to find happiness on earth-this side of marriage. However, once married, all the bachelor's troubles are over. lie is no longer the subject of interested ordesigning attentions - except the attentions which proceed from love. True, the bachelor be. comes on his marriage, if not an object of commiseration to the knowing ones, an ob. ject of comparative indifference to all women I,ut one; but the superior love of that one atones for all, and his added dignity and completeness as a man and citizen make him wonder how he previously existed as one. half of a pair of scissors without the other half.

It was ordered that he should preach in the royal chopel on a text that was, to be supplied to him on the following Sinday morning. The conditions became known to the court, and the chapel was crowded. The candidate ascended the pul pit. He opened the sealed paper that was to have contained the text. The paper was blank i A glance at the king told him that the omission was intentional.. Turning over the paper, he said : " Iy brethren, here is nothing, and there is nothing; out of nothing God created all things I" and forthwith preached an excel lent sermon on the wonders of nature. The Archbishopric of York was once gained by a witty saying. The see was vacant, and George III. asked the R1ev. Dr. Mountain if he could name a proper person to fill the office.
