Saved by a Cat. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
Saved by a Cat. During the Crimean war a little eat, reared in his mother's cottage, followed a young French soldier when he left his native village. The lad's heart clung to this small dumb member of his family, and he gave puESy a seat or, his knapsack by day ant a corner of his couch by night. She took her meals on her master's knee and was a general pet in the company. On the morning that his regiment was first ordered into action the soldier bade his little cat farewell and left her in charge oa a sick comrade. lie had marched about a mile from camp when, what was his surprise to see Miss Pues running beside him. lie lifted her to her usuanl seat, and Eren the en gagement began. Twice did the soldier tall, but the cat clung fast hold. At laet a severe wound stretched him bleeding upon the field. No sooner did pusny catch eight of tha blood flowing so freely than she seated hcr. self upon the soldier's breast and began to lick the wound in the most assiduous manner. Thus she rem...
The True Cinderella. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
The True Cinderella. -- --+***+-- aT nEZERAII nUTrERWORTH. There are few thoughts that are new in th~ world, as Solomon discovered thousands of years old, and said tnat there is nothing new under the sun. Some of our readers may be surprised to learn that the finest of all English nursery tales, Cinderella, was once the delight of the children of Egypt in the days of the Pharaohs. But in the true Cinderella history there are no fairy god mothers, no mice, no pumpkins. A wise old eagle takes all the management cf the slipper, and we can in fancy see him carrying it over the silverAnpnA and airk i arrnkiaq of Eylt without too Dreatly taxing our elier: . Rodolphe was the fairest lady in all Egypt. She had a dainty foot, and wore jewelled slippers, and all the people gazed upon her with delight when she walked as though she were a goddess or a fairy. She went out to bathe one day among the white lilies of the Nile. While she and her maids were sport ing in the water, a great shadow pane...
Harnessing Niagara. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
1farnessing Ningara. This subject has received much attention of late and, indeed, a company has been or ganised for the purpose of carrying the idea into effect. A writer says: The project primarily involves the con etruntion ofa tunnel 11 000 feet long. from a ltiver, near the foot of Grand Island, nearly due north, and beneath Niagara Fslls Village in a direct line, to a point on the bank of the river below the falls. This willbe better understood when it is recalled that Niagara R:ver leaves the foot of the falls at almost right angles to its course above the precipice. Toe country under which this tunnel will pass is nearly level farming land, xcCellently adapted to the needs of an industrial centre. The tunnel will discharge its water into the river below the falls with a vertical fall of 218 feet, and by means of turbine wheels it is calculated that, with branches and wheel pits and races, it will develop a water power aggregating 130,000 horse powrr. Here may be found threna...
[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
from the atlt go ne me to have it draww yh ne l t may Ie made to move continuously through the loops. It is in this way that the little mail car of magnetised steel is caused to pass along its rails through Fuccessive coils of boxed-in wire, the latter beji?Lsnnogntised by a current from a dynamo, which the car itself shuts tfl and turnd on automatically as it proceeds. The Epeed to be attained by the car in this manner is almost incalculable. As is recognised in mechanics, a constanmt propelling force is productive cf nearly in finite velocity, obstructed only by the resist ance of friction. In this systen-tOhe only friction comes from the air and the slight contact of the car with the rails. Twohun dred and fifty miles an hour is not thought to be an overestimate of the speed easily to be compassed by the port-electric post dis patch. At the starting psint the wire coils will have to be close together and on up grades hut elsewhere,and especially on down-grades; they may be few an...
BRAVE JOE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
BRAVE JOE. "Oh ! when I'm old," cried bonny Joe, "A soldier I will be, And when we rush to meet the foe, I bravely to the front will go, And face the enemy." 'Ah I say not so," cried little Sue, "But do some pity take, How could we say good-bye to you ? If you were killed, what should we do? Dear mother's heart would break." Then Joey laughed right merrily "But we shall win the fight, And all come marching home, you'll see, When we have killed the enemy, And I'll be made a knight." But Suey's tears they fell like rain, " It's wrong all round," said she, ' For only some can glory gain, And at the cost of others' pain, It's wrong as wrong can be I"
Which is Best? [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
Which is Best? If only our frocks and aprons Would grow like the leaves on the trees, And out we could rush in the morning, To gather and pick as we please- How nice it would be, and how easy, We never would have a misfit; No matter how much we might tear them, We never need sew up a slit. No tiresome mending or darning, No use for a needle or thread, I No grief for a hole in a stocking, No scolding from mother to dread. And if there were never a lesson, No writing or spelling of words. And nothing to do but be idle, And chatter and sing like the birds- How useless, and tired, and lazy. And miechievous, too, we would grow; No, no I 'Tie a thousand times better To read. and to spell, and to new.

Ways of Preparing Eggs. Awhil s respondent gave a num-. ber of recipes r utilising eggs, among which were the follow g : oFG SOUP.

Mash through a colander, stir until it boils, and add a teaspoonful of flour wet up with cold wa'er to prevent the soup from settling. Cock for a minute and draw to the back of tile fire while you poach in a pint of boiling milk one egg for each person. Take out the eggs with a colander dipper, lay in the tureen and add the milk to the soup, stir in a tablespoonful of butter and pour over the eggs. This elegant comp...

The scene was a fashion- fat le wedding in St. lBartholomew's church. haudsomely dreseed woman was sitting in e of the front peeve. As the bridal party ot oved up the a'sle of the church a dis nguished looking man who occupied the Lw directly behind the handsomely dressed :Oman leaned forward, and, showing the as tf'zlo of a small revolver concealed in his and, in a low whisper hissed in her car the wordsquoted above.

IT has been observed that the skin of arctic travellers has a yellowish-green tinge after thelong wint r of six months, and the effect has been generally attributed-to faulty eyesight. Dr. Gyllencreutz has Etudied the matter, and decides that it is due to changes in the pigment of the blood.

KIND NELLIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 24 December 1890
KIND NELLIE. It was a very hot summer day. Little Nellie stood by her gate looking down the dusty road. She was watching for her father to come home. Soon she saw a poor dog coming up the road. His tongue was hang ing out, and he looked very hot and tired. "I am sure he must be very thirsty," said Nellie to herself. Nellie loved dumb animals. So she went in and brought out some water in a dish. "If the poor dog is thirsty he will drink this," she said. At first he was afraid to come near her, but when he saw the water which she held for him to drink, he came up to her and lapped it greedily. Nellie was glad that she had brought it, when she saw how much the poor dog en joyed it. When he had finished, he wagged his tail and looked up into her face, He then gave a short, sharp bark, which meant " Thank you," as plainly as he could say it. Nellie's father had come up while she had been holdi?g the dish. "I.hope you._will. aliways do good, Nellie," he said, "when ever you can.

Take no thought of me, my lord."' - St. Aubyn looks at her, and then breaks into a laugh. There is something so serious, so saintly, and unselfish in her childish face, that it actually amuses him. "As if I would give you up fcr all the wealth in the world I" he cries at last, catch ing both her hands, and drawing her close to him. :" No, little one, you are mine; you gave me your promise long ago and you shall not take it back. I love you, and I do not love Lady ,arsandra. You, not she, shall be my sweet, dear wife." His eyes transfix hers with . strange, ir resietible spell; his strong arms hold her close. She trembles, and hides her face on his breast. "You are safe here, in my arms, dearest," he continues," and I'll never relinquish you again. I left you once, when you lay ill at Treeby Wold, and what came of it ' If I l]e you go now, ...
