POETRY. HIGHEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 October 1875

POETRY. HIGHEST. By Fu~ACs R. R. RonsoN. FLY away, swallow, fly unto the blue, 1 nor the hawk can follow, I've been nearer the heaven than you, Nearer the secret the wise men know, Nearer the dawningwhere dreams cometrue, Higher than star or swallow. Dolwn the wave of a beautiful bay I drifted into my heaven, Down through a shoroless, shadowless day, Under the gates that seemed lifted for aye, Under low music by winds borne away, Into the folding even. All the'sailing the watch had boon kept By eyes of a passionate glory, Till mine could wonder they ever had wept, Till the namelessetumult stilled and slept, And out of its travail a now life crept, Born of that worldless story. Till the measurelesejoy and the golden peace And the crimson sunset blended, And we drifted, drifted into the peaceo, Drifted into the sunset fleece, Into the depths were currents cease, And storm and swell are ended.. What if we fell from the heaven wo know, Thou and I, O swallow? Sing--you have caught a roul...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. GAS STOVES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 October 1875

CORRESPONDENCE. 3Ve do not necessarily andorseý the opinions of our corroespondonts. GAS S I'OVES. TO THE EDITOR OF TIlE MERCURY. SIn.-I was rather astonished at the ver diet of the jurors in the late trial of Gas Stoves, at the Exhibition, on Saturday last. Having used one, for the last fourteen months, I was astonished to see the cooking capabilities of each patent. The result of the trial was (and I do not think that the referees will dispute it). that overything was cooked splendidly by Hodgson's stove. The meat cooked in Walker's was all but raw, the pies were not much browned, and the: fish not as I should like to send to table. . It. is an astonishing fact that, although Mr. Walker started cooking fully, twenty minutes before Mr. Stock (the inventor of Hodgson's stove) that the dinners of the two were placed on the table almost simultaneously. The .meat, fie?' cliojbp~'steaks, iid ples'on Hodgson's' table were all consumed by the jurors and, friends,'while that on' both the o...

BREAD. (HERALD OF HEALTH.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 October 1875

BREAD. ( L(HintAD Or uMzairn.) BREAD is the staff of life. Good broad pontains the best food for man, in the proportions required for the healthy nourishment of the system. We tire of iany kinds of food; but we eat bread every day (so it be good bread) with lie same relish. A certain variety is 'esirablo; but if we could have but one kind of food, we should choose bread. In a certain sense we must bonsider all: kinds of. farinacooiis food as broad. .Wheat is,thoe king of grains the most'pebrfoct fo6od fi man;,--but we have bread also of rye, oatmeal, barley, maize, rice, .&c Even a baked potato isj?dblo©ly llied to-bread;'and the bread fruit of the tropics is a nourishing substitute.' We. do not know why it is, but the fact is observed by every itraveller, that while one finds good bread in France, Belgium, -Germany; 'italy, and best of all, perhaps, in' Austria, good bread in England Is very rare.' Ad a rule the, bread of English bakers is bad, anhd consequently unhealthy.....

SATURDAY, OCT. 30, 1875. TIlE Collingwood Council at its sitting last week took into its consideration the schedules of proposed 'works for the ensuing year, as prepared by the specailly appointed committees' of the various wards in conjunction with the Public Works committee.
