Wouldn't Intrude. A Yorkshireman went to London to see the British Museum. Unfortunately, the Yorkshireman chose a close day for his visit, and the policeman at the gate, when he presented himself there, waved him away. 'But I must come in,' said .the Yorkshireman. 'I've a holiday on purpose.' 'No matter,' said the guardian. 'This is a close day, and the museum is shut.' 'What? Ain't this public proper ty?' 'Yes,' admitted the policeman; 'but,' he cried excitedly, 'one of the mummies died on Tuesday, and do you begrudge us one day to bury him in?' 'Oh, excuse me,' said the York shireman in a hushed voice. 'In that case I won't intrude.'

Correspondence. TALBOTVILLE ROAD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912

Correspondence. TALBOTVILLE ROAD, TO THIS EDITOR. Sra. — W ould you find room in your paper for a few works of protest against the doings of the Avon Shire Council in regards to the expenditure of road grant money in this district, as it is a standing disgrace. Some time ago the Government gave £150 towards the construction of a new road to Talbot ville, but the work was earned out in such a way that there is little' or noth ing remaining to show for the outlay. The road was never graded, and, in consequencc it is all ups and downs; in one .place it is only three feet wide with a drop of 50 feet to -the river. There is no other road available, and any person travelling along does so at the risk of his life every time. Surely some responsibility would rest upon the council if any accident occurred. When Mr Edgar was up here they carefully avoided showing him that portion of the road, being frightened that he would have a word to say about the way the money was squan dered. If he had ...

THROUGH A MAN'S EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912

THROUGH A MAN'S EYE. If you want to understand the mind of your husband or lover, you must put yourself in his place, and look out on the world through a man's eyes instead of a woman's. ? You'll be surprised to find how big your small things look, and how small your big things! The breaking of a promise, for in stance, whicn, wnen expediency cans the tune, you are apt to regard mere ly as an unfortunate incident which cannot be helped, is to him something to be avoided at all cost and hazard; while that your clever cook has given notice, a sheer calamity to you, he considers no more than a passing an noyance.

RETENTION OF MOISTURE IN THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 21 June 1912

Retention of Moisture in the Soil. By Victor Ducret, Grade VIII. The meithod which we use in j school to show the retention of. mois ture in different soils is this one : — Procure four lamp glasses and . put into the first gravel, in the second sand, in the next put loam,- and clay in the last. Both ends of the gjci&see* ait? upeu- — wt* xiau piece of cloth over the bottonWoOe^tch of them. {' f {)*) j They were then hung on \^,tat-fe and a tin put under each imfflSeK to catch any water that migh^YHUL throngh the glasses and three cubic irrches of water was pnt into each In this way we can see which of these soils retain the most moisture and which lets the water soak through it the quickest. We found that clay holds the most moisture also that water takes longer to soak through it than any of the other three. Water runs through gravel in a shorter timB than any of the others and gravel holds the least water, Aftgr the gravel comes the sand, and after that loam, and last of ...
