A Wonderful Insect [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

A Wonde fulL Insect The minute black specks at the extreme end of each of a snail's longest feelers are the animal's eyes-very imperfect and rudi mentary organs of vision, but still capable of discriminating between light and dark ness, and of sometimes discovering the pre sence of a foreign body, provided that it is of a fair size. The lower and shorter ten tacles are - ~ eyes which grace the tips of th ongerone seem to be solely used as feele'- the Wa in which a snail witbd d bod ib?5s e?eurioas. They are S?ac receptacle, but ingers of a g ove that is ra-wioff backward. It would naturally be inpposed that the snail would be very susceptible in these deli cate and usefulorgans. Theirsensitiveness shows that this is so, and yet he is, com paratively speaking, indifferent to the loss of them. If you care to sacrifice the feel ings of the animal to the gratification of your curiosity, you may cut off his tentacles with a pair of scissors. Blinded, and at the same time deprived of his ...

Too Bright to Last. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Too Bright to Last. BY MRS. M. A. KIDDER. Too much like heaven's divinest light, This radiance on me cast ; This tender, loving, perfect joy Too bright, too bright to last. If earth were such a brilliant robe, Such garments of delight. With naught but days of sunny sheen, And not a single night. With not a cloud, and not a chill, No sorrow, pain, or woe, To heaven, our true abiding place, We ne'er ehould wish to go. If seeming friends were never false, If richecs took no wings. We ne'er should know the happiness That light from darkness brings. Then welcome trials as they come, And welcome shade and shine; The loving Father knoweth best Then let His will be minel

Subjects for Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Subjects for Tlhought. THAT chancei should occasionally enter our lives is no more wonderful than the regu lar variations which the laws of time and of growth unfold. We cannot foresee what they will be or when they will come, but the life that passes without any of them is the exception and not the rule. All our reading of history, all our observation of life, all our own xcperience testify to the certainty of change. Our particular hopes or fears may not be realised, but in some way and at some time we may be very sure our sur. roundinge, our cileimstanoes. our lives will be altered more or less radically. This being so, it aehuld be a part of all education, and especially of all self culture, to become so fortified against them that they may not find us powerless and unfitted to meet them as they come. \W\AT matters, tis, where your feet stand or wherewith your hands are busy, so that it is the spot where God has put 3ou and the work he has given you to do7 Your real life is with...

THE ORPHAN LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

TIHE OIRPIL.AN LAM~lB. Deep in the wood the purple violet hides, The fragrant primrose smiles fromn out its leaves, While 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. Glad larks are singing all the livelong day, L. t fo-anit 5 ro, 'twixt earth and heaven th ey p ass, - -,. . And in the fields the merry lambs it 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 luamb will bear, Sheltered within her strong and tender arms. Grace has been taught from early youth to be Gentle ...

Fighting Mosquitoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

FightingIsIosquitoes.-People whcenomp out for vacation amusements may find a valuable hint in the experience of a camping party on Lake Winnipiscogee, thus told in "Good Cheer :" The little pests swarmed upon us in clouds. Sleep was impossible, and we devoted the first hours of the evening to fighting cur lilliputian adversaries. WeV smoked until we could scarcely breathe in the stifling air, This they seemed to like,. and buzzed and stung all the more merrily for it. We scented ourselves and bedding: with essence of peppermint, with spearmint. and carbolic acid, which pleased thr.n so well that the myriads inside the tent called upon other myriads outside to come in and. help them enjoy it. The situation was grow- ing desperate. But at last I bethought me of one more expedient which had been recommended, but which I had forgotten. 1. searched through my stores and brought out. a piece of gum camphor. Taking a piece about the size of a walnut, I placed it on a tin plate and set fire...

HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

IIOUSEIIOLL . About the House.-Matting may not be the best floor covering for a hall where the constant tramping bhack and forth is apt to break the straw and wear it in spots. Nor can it be recommended for use in a dining room. unless protected under the table by a rug ordrugget. The pushing back of heavy chairs soon leaves its mark even on thie stout est carpet, and matting cannot stand such rosugh usage. But in parlors, sitting-rooms, and especially in sleeping apartments, it is far preferable to a carpet. In the bed-cham. Irs small rugs laid by the bed, bureau and w.lsh-stand, are all that is really needed, even for delicate people who dicad to have their feet come into contact with the cold surface. In the other rooms larger rugs may be placed where it seems best-by the fireside, sota, or sewing chair. Matting is in thorough harmony witk the present style of cottage plenishings. It is in keeping with scrim and Madras draperies, wicker and Faval chairs, bamboo easels and screens...

The thread that this weaver weavath Is spun by a magic wheel G:d pat ,n her little body With noieele?s spindle and rral; And fine enough in its texture For high-born lady or queen Is the thread that the spider weaveth, With the sunshine in between.

She never grOWS cross nor weary, While weaving the airy lace, Nor tangles the thread as I would do Were I in the epider's place; She never goes forth to gossip, Or tattle of any one, And never from house to house to see How her neighbor's thread is spun. But just like the careful woman Wno was not afraid of the snow, Whbse household was clothed in scarlet, Is the spider out there, I know. She is weaving a fairy castle, Whoee pillars are besed on air, And round and round the castle She windeth a ch...

A Recent French Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

A Recent French Marriage. There was nothing romantic about this mar riace. The bridegroom was Jean Baptiste Andre Godin, aged sixty-nine, manufacturer of iron and copper ware at the ancient city of Guise, in northern France. The bride was Marie-AdBle Moret, for many years secretary to the bridegroom, aed forty-six. The festivities took place in the presence of two, or three thousamst people. Twenty-five years ago, M. Godin, who bad created a considerable iron-ware business at Guise, in which he employed several hundred men, conceived a scheme for beneliting his men radically, particularly those who had families to support. In coinsidecing the lot of the wlorkingman he came to the conclusion that the real pinch and hardship of French poverty was in its mean, small, dirty, and in salubrious habitations. A good mechanic i with a family, earning the wages paid in I France to mechanics, could afford to live only in two or three inferior rooms of a I crowded house, in a disagreeable stree...

Tihe Trustworthy Cat. A. trustworthy cat, with a countenance fair, And fur as tidy as ever you'd wish, Was sitting, apparently taking care Of a trayful of drying fish. She winked, and blinked, and she softly purred, And once in a while she nodded her head, /And it I mistake not, this I heard, And this is what she said: You see that I hold a position of trust A very important position to hold The appointment, for once, was perfectly just, And was given away, not sold. " I am the Watch-Cat of the Fish; I help to maintain my country's laws; When the Thief-Cats try to steal, I wish You could see me use my claws I "I have held the place for a year, and though I understand a poet has said: ' What cat's averse to fish l' I go Hungry, sometimes, to bed. " I never have touched one single fish," I was certain I saw her wink one eye, And I whispered, softly: " l really wish You'd tell me-in eonfidenae-why ?"

Improvement of Plants. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

inuprovenrnat of Plants. We are too -apt to think that we have reached perfection because we have made such successful improvements on different lines of plant culture. We feel the same with our stock for the same reason. But we bane reached perfection in nothing; neither in invention, discovery or improvement. At an exhibition of Edison's "talking box," the other evening, the exhibitor said : "This is not a perfect machine. It is being improved every day." And yet as we sat listening to the human voice coming out of a little box with no human being near it, repeating with strict fidelity to tone and accent,all that had been spoken into it, one would be led to exclaim, •" That is perfection." No, there is no per fection. \Ve have taken the wild fruit and made it wonderfully better. In fifty years iwe have accomplished wonders in fruit culture. In the next fifty years we will accomplish greater wonders. It is not difficult to improve plants. A we;l known writer says that in essence, ...

Farming in Foreign Lands. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Farmning in Forei-n Lands. A considerable impetus has been given of :ate years to irrigation in Bombay. Of the 27 irrigation works in that country, 25 are storage projects. Of the three large protec. tive works, the principal is the Nira canal, fourteen miles of which were opened during the year, by which 32,285 additional acres were brought under cultivation. , The most important effective work is the Mutha canal system, which last year paid 2 35 per cent. on its capital outlay. This scheme consists of a large storage reservoir on the Autha River, ten miles west of l'oona. The right bank of the canal passes through the station of Poona, to which point it is navigable, and, in addition to irrigating the very valu able land in its nuighborhood, supplies the cantonment with drinking water. After leaving Poona, the water is carried by two tunnels, to avcid interfering with the parade ground and the civil and military buildings. Between these two tunnels there is a fall which is utilise...

Aphides, or Plant Lice. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890

Aphides, or Plant Lice. FIew plants except those of the lowest orders are exempt from the ravages of plant lice, though some are injured much more than otherr. Aphides in general are wingless, but in the autumn winged speci mens of both sexes appear. The eggs are laid in the crevices of bark and similarly sheltered spots. A single aphide produces about 90 young, and it is stated that five generations have been produced in six weeks. The fifth generation,if none perished before reproduction, would amount to 6,000,000o000. The color of the aphides varies with that of the plant on which they live. On the back of most species are two hollow prominences, the so-called " honey tube from which exudes a sweet liquid, much sought by ants. The latter, by strok ing the aphides, increase the flow of this liquid, and are then commonly said to be milking their cows." To counteract their injurious effects, one of the best means is to i.crp up.the Ceneral vigor of the plant by an abundance of plans...
