Value of Ensilage. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
Yalue of Ensilage. w The principal of the H&wkesbary Agriculture College. Mr H. W. Potts, reports as an example of what can be done in fodder conservation tba6 ' one of the paddock planted witl* sorghum had only scant cultivation, with the result that summer grass, one of the commonest weeds in the: district in a moist season, grew as rapidly as the sorghum. In Feb ruary, 1910, there was as much, summer grass as sorghum, and it was decided to make the crop the foundation for an ensilage stack of maize. The maize harvester was nsed in cutting the crop, and (to gether with summer grass alone from another paddock) about 100 tons of the mixture was put into the silo, the upper part of which con tained about 400 tens of maize, Tbe maize ensilage has all been utilised,, and for some time past' tbe mixture of summer grass and sorghum has 'formed tbe bulk of the feed of the daily stock. It is a little dry now, but.it ib an excellent sample of ensilage, and the stock relish it as muc...

A STORY OF MASCAGNI. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
' A STORY OF MASCAGNI. Signor Mascagni was in his room at his hotel one day when a street or gan stopped below his window and proceeded to grind out the great com poser's famous intermezzo from ''Cavalleria Rusticana.' The organ grinder turned the. handle in a rather jerky way, and the result was tnat the well-known tune came forth in spasms. The composer writhed in agony. At last, unable to bear it any longer, he rushed bareheaded from the hotel, and bitterly reproached the man for playing the intermezzo so badly. 'I,' he said, 'I am Mascagni; I am the composer. And I .shall myself show you how to play'it.' And Mascagni solemnly turned the handle so that the organ-grinder might notice the correct time. The man thanked him, and the composer returned to his hotel with a pleasant sense of duty well done. Next morning, at the same time, the composer saw the same organ-grinder approach and again take up his posi tion outside the hotel. As Mascagni was leaving the hotel a few minuteB lat...
THE SKY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
* The Sky. By Nellie McQuillen, Grade III. On a rainy day you will see black looking clouds in the sky. They are called Nimbus-clouds. Those streaky clouds are called Stratus clouds. Last night there was a number of red ones in the sky, and in between the red it was blue. Yesterday there was a cloud in the sky and it was just like a Stratns but it was not oue. It was a sort of a Nimbus cloud. Those little curly clouds are called Cirrus.
PHOTOGRAPHY. The Amateur and the Multiplicity of Plates. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
PHOTOGRAPHY. The Amateur and the Multiplicity of Plates. . \ Of such value has been the work done by Mr. Alfred Watkins on behalf of the photographic world, and in par ticular for the beginner in the art, that what he had to say at the Exeter Photographic Convention upon the question of the undue multiplicity of brands of plates cannot fail to be of interest and importance to the ama teur. He argued, with an abundant show of reason, that if all the numer ous brands of any one firm of plate makers be exposed, developed, and compared, the results show no justifi cation for ' - . different brands or la bels, and claimed that English plate makers, who make the best plates in tne world, would sain in dienitv and simplicity by a drastic overhaul of their lists of brands. Mr. Watkins met a possible argument in a manner that at one stroke reveals the danger of the present system to the amateur who, particularly at this time of the year, purchases his plates from vari ous dealers. It might b...
RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
RIFLE SHOOTING. The fiual saoot for the' ' V.R.A'. medal, which comprises 15 shots each at 300yds., 500yds., and 600yds., was concluded on. the local range on Sat urday last. There was a good deal of interest evinced in the' match, as up the last shoot a good number of mem bers had a chance to win. The weather was not conducive to good shooting, a strong wind and changing lights making it difficult to judge, and, as a result, most of the leading men fared badly. Oha man who had a splendid score at the two previous ranges failed to find the target, and, after eight misses, retired. At the first two ranges Captain W. H. Car ter and W. Bartlett tied, with 65 and 70 each. The shoot at 600yds. re sulted in a win for Captain Carter with 64, making a total of 199. J. King (191) was second, and' W. Bart lett (189) third. Captain Carter has won the medal three years in succes sion, scoring 202, 198 and 199. As rales oaly allow a member to win the medal once, he receives a c^asp, and the meia...

Not His Fault. . A London cabby stood glaring at an other cabby whose vehicle had gotten in his way. 'Aw, wot's the matter with yer?' demanded the aggressive one. 'Nothinks the matter with me, yer bloomin' idjut.' . 'Yer gave me a nawsty look,' per sisted the other. 'Me? Wull, yer certainly 'ave a nawsty look, but I didn't give it to yer, so 'elp me.' 'In your sermon, this morning you spoke of a baby as 'a new wave on the ocean of life.'' 'Quite so; a poetical figure.' 'Don't you think 'a fresh squall' would have hit the mark better?'

STRATFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
Stratford. By M. F., Grade VI. On Sunday we went for a stroll up the Avon river, as far as old Strat ford. This was the place where the' first white men settled when they came about Gippsland. We visited the old cemetery in which we cculd only count nine graves. The ceme tery, was made in about the year 1840. It is a very small one fenced in with post and rails. It has one big bush in it, and a few small ones. The big bush must have been planted as a small plant, for it is right on the centre of the grave. The Pipe-C!ay creek, (which has its banks covered in a mass of green trees drooping over the water, and meeting together), is just below- the cemetery. This creek flows into the Avon river. William Raymond used to get the goods brought to him in bullock waggons from Melbourne, and the people used to get the goods from the station, which he took care of.
FOOTBALL. Stratford v. Maffra. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
FOOTBALL. Stratford v. Maffra. The above collision, oh the local ground yesterday, was not marked by any play which calls for special men tion, and neither side exhibited much form, the absence of systematic train ing being very noticeable, especially towards the end of tbe last quarter. W. Turner's play stood out conspicu ously against trie rest or tne held, and good defense work was shown by Lawrence, whose marking was clean and sure._ Streeter, Rice, Turner, Williams and Maxwell bandied the ball to advantage at times, bat right throughout, the play was too con gested. D. Bourke exhibited good judgment and played well for the home team. S (van's play on tbe wing was good, but a lot of its effect was ^spoilt by the absence of men from their places. Stewart, Adams, Car ran, Kennelly, Crowe, and tbe Gar dens were tbe principal leaders of the attack which ..resulted in a win for tSe locals by 35 points, the fiaal scores being 6 — 17 to 2 — 4. For the winners C. Stewart notched two goa...

THE WAY IN WHICH THE CRUSADES HELPED ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912
The Way in Which the Crusades Helpjed -England. . By O.M.S., Grade VIII. ' Ooly little fish live . in little ?riv«rs.' That is traly said for no one expects to see large fish in small rivers. This illustration applies to every body and every place. Our little world (Stratford) conld be made larger if we only liked to try to enlarge it. A people whose world is'so small cannot but help but hav ing small or narrow minds. Their ideas are confined too much to- the one spot and consequently are in need of widening. The Crusaders having resolved to go to the Holy -Land found on arriv ing in Asia that the people there had different and in many ways better views than they. They, had 1 different modes of dWelling,they [followed different customs ^and dressed differently, Is it any won der then that when the remaining Crusaders retnrned they broadened the ideas of the English and- intro duced other customs. Let ns apply this to our own dis trict, broaden the .minds 6f the inhabitants and intro...
