A Standard For The King's English.

Stamford speech ia, more or low, consciously and successfully, taught in our schools:; it is consequently slow, and would bo still farther reduoed, if wo had a rational spelling that adequately represented the Bounds, and if oor teachers received a better phonetic training, which would enable them to check deviations from the at&ndarii which now passed un noticed.

Crude Official "Methods." [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 17 April 1914
Crude Official "Methods." The old saying that "the Law Is an sss" is offien proved trae by the ?abfisns and methods of many of those whom it has " drest in a little brief authority." A week or two ago an inspector under the Dairy "Supervision Act visited the LtnceSeld Butter Company's factory, and condemned a number of cream .cans as unfit for use for that purpose -on account of slight signs of rust' This may be within his province, and a necessary safe guard to .the consumer. But the method adopted to ensure that his condemnation would stand, and the cans be not used again for cream surely strikes the most casual observer as crude and senseless, and reaching what one would hope tc be she limit of official ineptitude. Members of the local couucil and directors of the' local company, who had met there in conference, were not slow to ?express their feelings when they found the cans had large holes punched in their bottoms and around the sides, render ing them useless, Everyone who liv...
