Interest in Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 14 January 1891

Interest in Work. Interest in our work for its own sake is a cultivatable quality. We all possess it in some degree, and we mayall increase it if we will. Children may be accustomed at a very early age to'take pleasure in the suc cess of their own effarts, quite apart from any personal good they may derive from it. The careful observer of child-nature will notice that this is a natural delight, and is dlealened and diminished only by the growth of selfish considerations. If care is taken to make work as congenial as possible, to prevent its being excessive and exhausting, aml to symnpathise with and encourage the natural joy of succeess, there is no reason why i: should ever decrease. The youth who enters into a well-ehosen life-employment with this power of happiness and also with the power of self-government has every retason to hotpe that his work may be success ful and his life valuable and happy. i'Et.?sO. who eagerly grasp new truths are very apt to drop old ones entirely out ...

Teacup Lore. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 14 January 1891

S Teacup Lore. IHere are a few old women's signs which may eo read from a cuIp of ten. If an. body lianppensto have two spoons in his cup, it is a sign that he will figure prominently at a wedding before the year is out. If milk or cream is put in your cup before the sugar, it will " cross " your love. A tea stalk floating on the top of the tea is called a " stranger." When this happens to unmarried ladies they should stir the tea round briskly and then place the spoon in the centre of the cup hold. ing it quite still. If the " stranger " in its gyrations is attracted to the spoon, the '" stranger " will.come that evening ; should it, however, cling to the side he will not come at all. We may observe that it really dc pends on the state'of the atmosphere as to whether the stalk goes to the middle or not. It is a sign of fair weather if the clusters of small air bubbles, which usually rise after thesugar has been put in, collect themselves and remain in the centre of the cup, II, on ...
