DEATH OF MRS. J. H. BELL. IN MEMORIAM SERVICE. The sudden death of Mrs. J. H. Bell, of Sydney-road, Coburg. and daughter of Mr. W. Davis, of More land, gave widespread cause for regret, and very genuine expressions of sym pathy have been heard on every hand since the demise of the unfortunate lady. Mrs. Bell was 29 years of age, and'was assiduously attended by Dr. Dyring, but her death, which came un expectedly, resulted from pure weak ness, or failure of the heart's action. The funeral took place on Thursday last, zznd inst., and was very largely attended, the cortege starting from the late residence of the deceased and thence to Holy Trinity Church, when, after a short service by the Rev. J. Caton, the mournful procession wended its way: to the Melbourne General Cemetery. Around the grave many friends assembled, and the Rev. J. Caton, who performed the funeral obsequies, deliveredoa* touching 'and earnest address to those arotind, who fully realised the solemnity ,and :im pressive...

About the House. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 28 January 1891
About the Hlouse. Amy succeeded in imparting a fine brown color to her hands while at the seaside, and siine her retuir'hbas.been at great pains to wiiteri'them. As her efforts are crowned iLir success, I will give you the secret. You imust moisten your hanhs at night with glycerine and draw on a pair of gloves. This must be done for many a night, and to stop for a little while may counternat the good effect of weeks of care. A pair of soft un dressed kid gloves are the best for this pur pose, and they can be bought at a very small price if some unfashionable color is selected. Then again, the glove must be a large size or they will do exalcly what you do not wish -cause the blood to rush to the hands. Sometimes vaseline is preferred,assome skins are irritated by glycerine and' will become brown by its use. This, however, may? be determined by those usingit. A'quick metihor of whitening the hands is to rub them well at night with almond oil andt then, cover them over with fine chalk...
FIRE AT BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 28 January 1891
FIRE:- AT ý IBRUUNSWICK A fire, which proved more disas: trous in its results th'ihn was a tfirstf anticipated,. occurred ?at - Brunswick shortly after, four o'clocki on ,Tuesday afternoon. The flames were first seen originating from a she?d a thhe ear 'of the premisesof Mr. T Pasafield, bale'~ and caterer, Sydney-road, and before the fire could be subdued, consider able damage hsas done. 'In one of the sheds destroyed was a quantity of butter, valued at over L ioo, and 'also a new express waggon, Mr. Passfield being a loser to the extent of £t5o, and not being insured. The building is the property of Mr. Perry, and the damage sustained to the premises is covered by insurance. The origin of the fire has been traced to the throw ing out of a shovelful of ashes into the yard by the servant, who was unaware that there were any live coals amongst them. Immediately on the alarm being given, the Brunswick brigade attended, and prevented any extension of the conflagration.
