Blind Prom Birth. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
Blind From Birth. The blind generally adopt the lan guage of their more fortunate breth ren, and speak of 'seeing' things, when they only feel or hear them. That explanation, however, does not quite exonerate the trickster describ ed in the following: — The wind was blowing a bit more than a gale when a benevolent old chap stopped to put a copper in the hat of a shivering man at the street The donor nearly dropped the coin, but -the beggar shoved his hat under neath it and skilfully rescued it. 'Why, you're not blind!' cried the giver, scornfully. 'No,' confessed the beggar. 'I'm just takin' a pal's place while he has a bit o' rest. He's blind, sir — been blind from birth.' 'Where is he taking his rest?' de manded the. stranger, still unconvinc ed. 'Why, he's gone to a cinematograph show.'

Seven Days. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
Seven Days'. When Farmer Fairweight came to! Melbourne on -a flying visit he disco vered many things.— that omnibuses could go without horses, that you could walk for a whole hour without strik ing a field or an acquaintance, and, finally, that you couldn't hit a police man simply because he compels you to move out of other people's way. As hp. was beins taken to the sta tion he inquired what Ihe policeman intended doing with him. 'You'll find out soon enough,' said the policeman, grimly. 'Seven days, probably.' 'Seven days! Ah, that's where I have ye, old blue bottle!' chuckled the farmer, triumphantly, producing the return half of his ticket. 'I've to go back on Monday!' x
Her Harem Skirt. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
Her Harem Skirt. [ have a brand new harem skirt Of satin rich and black, With beaded gimp around the legs And buttons up the back. Each day I take it from the box In which, it folded lies, To gaze upon its sable, sheen With fascinated eyes. I shake it out, and smooth it down, On sofa, chair or bed, Its shining, bifurcated length Admiringly I spread. Then for its narrow box again I mournfully prepare it, Because I haven't got the nerve To put it on and wear it.
HIDDEN TREASURE AND WHERE TO LOOK FOR IT. Gold Buried Beneath the Waves. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
HIDDEN TREASURE AND WHERE I TO LOOK FOR IT. Gold. Buried Beneath the Waves. Many stories have been told regard ing the millions buried beneath the waves; of old Spanish galleons and pirate ships, carrying untold wealth, being sent to the bottom by rock and storm, leaving their treasure as com pany for the fishes. Many of the stor ies have no foundation on fact, and are but mythical legends built up by fic tion-writers. There are, however, ac cording to Mr. R. D. Paine's book, | 1UC DUUK U1 DUl itJU JL 1 ecl&Ui e, -x number of authentic cases of treasure lying at the bottom of the sea, which has yet to be found. N One of the most striking' stories is that of a whole fleet of galleons which, in 1702, went down in Vigo Bay,- ' off the coast of Spain, amid the thunder of English and Dutch guns. With them vanished gold, silver and jewels worth, it is estimated, some £20,000,00, and this prize is still i awaiting a finder. Many efforts have I been made to discover the treasure, an...
LITTLE THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
LITTLE THOUGHTS. The man who marries for money pertainly earns it. Many a high wall conceals a garden filled with weeds. An office boy ^ho is taken on trial often proves to be one. Children are won by candy, women bv bonnets, men by schemes. Green is not becoming to any per son when it's the shade produced by envy. Don't get discouraged. Even to the oyster there comes an opening when least expected. All waves are more or less danger ous, and the waves of a 'pretty girl's handkerchief are usually more so. The woman who wears her feathers in her bonnet will not let her little boy rob birds' nests because' it is cruel. A boy's appearance of meekness may cover a lot of mischief. It is exertion that renders rest de lightful and keeps it sweet and undis turbed. A young girl marries because she's in love; a widow to keep out of it. Many a man has landed in the poor house by attempting to get rich quick. Mother: Ethel, you naughty child! What have you been doing to make Charlie cry so? Ethe...
TRAMPS OF THE OCEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
TRAMPS OF THE OCEAN. The 'hobo' of the sea is no rela tion to the Weary Willie of the land, and although the old song of 'Where- ever there's freight, that's where the tramp goes' applies in a measure, to the pilgrim who steals his way on the cargo carriers of the steel rail, it was penned by someone who had in mind the thousands of sturdy steam craft that are known on the seven pao □ n« fvomncs ocoo ao vi Oiiu^Oi i All vessels that do not ply on regu lar routes may be said to be tramps, and, while tramping may be looked upon with disfavor by those who live ashore, those afloat and th© shipping interests hold the tramp ship in high favor. A manufacturer gets a large order to deliver, say at Tampico, Mex ico. There are no regular freight ships plying- from the nearest coast port. What does he dp? He tele graphs or telephones to a shipbroker at that port, and the agent charters a tramp steamer of the required car go capacity. And one may always, or nearly al ways, find a tramp at ttie...

About Yeerung. Hy Lizzie Cnrran. Grade IV. - ? ? 'When I was out at YeernDg stay ing with Mrs Martin, I was very often talking to the cockatoo. I was tired when I came there. There are sandy hills on the way. When 1 left home with Mr and Mis Martin, I was quite anxious to go. When we came to these hills, I did not like them, we saw many birds.

FLOGGED BEFORE MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
FLOGGED BEFORE MARRIAGE. Very interesting and amusing are some of the reminiscences of Miss Olive Macleod, who a short time' ago made a journey of nearly 4000 miles through Africa to vteit the grave of Lieutenant Boyd-Alexander, to whom she was ehgaged to be married, and who was murdered by the natives. She mentions, for instance, how among the Fulanis, a handsome and in many respects highly-civilised race inhabi img uiciu niociia, tx wiiu dt6ires to be admitted as marriage able has to undergo -a remarkable or- ! deal. He sits in the middle of a circle of companions, who belabor him lust- ; ily with leather thongs. In his right hand he holds a mirror, in which he has to gaze upon his own immobile 'features, whose expression must never deviate from a 'cheerful calm.' Miss Macleod met one African chief who, when asked the number of his wives, hazarded the suggestion that there might be from 200 to 250, and produced them in batches of a dozen or so 'at a time to be photographed. tie lu...
MR BURR'S ADDRESS. BRITAIN'S GREATNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
Mr Burr's Address. Britain's Greatness. By Olive Smith, Grade VIII. It is known by most people, that ihe British Nation is the largest one that has ever been in existence, and is likely to remain so as long as the I people do not think, qs the past members of . nations long decayed thought, that their nation was great enough and that, they could have a rest awhile and pay others to do the necessary work, consequently they became lazv and ' their nation fell away. . Let it not be. so- with our natrion. We have no reason to boast of our greatness as there are other countries that may become greater than we if we are not careful, but we have reason to be proud of our nation. Britain would not be so great if her sons did not respect religion as they do, and in that we see the secret. of her success. Let it continue so.
