JANUARY 14TH. i891. -:o: A MATTER of very. grave importance to the whole of the residents of Coburg is dealt with by a correspondent in another column, who refers to the necessity of steps being taken to secure an additional reservation of land for the use of the people as a recreation -ground.- The shire is at present the possessor of a block of land in Bell-street, not in any way to be despised, but its rather cramped dimensions preclude the possibility of general use by the public. To acquire a more extensive block, centrally situated, and easy of access, should be the aim of the shire council, and never.was time more opportune for such an effort being made, than at present. Owing to the collapse of the property boom, large sums have been trapped in unsaleable lots for the past two years, and there are many syndi catest who would be...

Accused by a Clock. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 14 January 1891

Accused by a Clock. It was magnificent, in its carved walnut wood case, with its large enamelled dial, and with its pendulum of brass, bright as gold, passing and repassing before the opening covered with a disk of glass. All who caught sight of it through I'ierret's (the clookmaker's) window stopped to gaze at it, and formed little knots about his door. Pierret, the clockmaker, was still a young man, in his thirties; but, nevertheless, he was inclined to sadness, and not at all talka tive. le had known a great sorrow. Seven years before, while he was serving in the army, his father had been murdered-in this very shop, now occupied by him. Who was the assassin ? Un whom could he avenge the old man, who had never done harm to anybody, and who had been so kind to him ? Justice had failed to lay hand on the murderer and robber, who had carried cli ten thousand francs, saved sou by soe by the father for his son. All researches had been fruitless. Pierret had finished his time of service...

A Delightful Little Story. ----+++-- The:Duke, the Schoolboy, and the Toad. A contemporary tells of a delightful letter of the Duke of "Wellington which has just been ;unearthed. It runs as follows: " Strathfieldsaye, July 27, 1837.-Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington is happy to inform William Hurries that his toad is alive and well."

COONAN'S DOG. AND THE TROUBLE IT CAUSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 14 January 1891

COONAN'S DOG. AND THE TROUBLE IT CAUSED. Considerable amusement was created at the Coburg court on Tuesday during the hearing of a charge of unlawful assault preferred against Edmund Walsh by Michael Coonan, a well known local resident. Mr. Neave appeared for Coonan, and Walsh, who had issued a cross-summons, was repre sented by Mr. Gaunson. Evidence was given by Michael Coonan, that he was a retired farmer living at Moreland-road. On the 3rd inst. he was in his paddock, seeking to catch a pony, when Walsh came up and threatened to assault witness and kill his dog. He struck Coonan across the wrist with a heavy stick, and also made a blow at his head, the force of which witness warded off by holding up a halter which he carried. The Misses Coonan and his wife ran between the two men and saved any further attacks on the part of Walsh, who challenged him to "come out on the road," waere he would settle him. To Mr. Gaunson : He did not sool his dog on to Walsh. It was a peace ful anima...

Getting Enough Sleep. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 21 January 1891

Getlini Enough Sleep. An exchange gives the following sensible suggestions on this subject. It is as easy to preserve health without food as without sleep. The chiet offenders in the matter of going without sleep are the youth just at the time when they ought to be laying the foun dation for a long and useful life. They fly in the facs of that inexorable old dame, called nature, go to bed at irregular hours and generally late hours at that, and often from necessity get up early and attempt to worry along on four or five hours' sleep, when they ought to have eight or nine, and they display their lack of good sense by boasting of the cunning way they have cheated them. selves. To boast of drinking an overdose of poison, or of voluntarily hacking off one of their fingers with a carving knife, or of in tentionally exposing themselves to an attack of email-pox, would chow just as great de gree of intelligence. To deny themselves theamount of Eleepthey require is to shorten their lives an...

A Room for Sickness. Not Every One Can Afford to Have a Room Set Apart for Sicknese, But Those Who Can Should Do So. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 21 January 1891

A ILoosm for Sickaness. Not Every One Can Afford to Have a -Room Set Apart for Sickness, But Those Who Can Should Do So. There are few things, says Good Heouse .keping, more conducive to the comfort of a family than a room suitably arranged for sickness. Without it, there is much un necessary inconvenience, not only to the one who is ill, but to every member of the family. Especially is such a room desirable in con tagious diseaees. Many have lost loved ones jnst because the plan and furnieshing were such that it was impossible to separate the sick from the well. And yet it would seem from the general management at such times, that many parents think that if one child be taken with scarlet fever, for instance, every child in the family must of necessity have it. There is no greater mistake. Scarlet fever is seldom communicated before the eruption is de. veloped. This may be doubted by many; but when we know that children frequently escape when exposed in the fever stage, it is certa...
