Joan of Arc. By Kathleen Galway, Grade VII. I Jean of Arc was a very brave girl* -This fcaye girl who vas brought up' on a French farm had long been thinking over the terrible suffering which was caused by the English Armies to her country. So at last, when she was still only a young lady, she dressed herself up in a knight's dress and put herself at the head of an army and fought her way through the English into OrleaBS where she said she was ' Heaven's Messenger,' coming to saye her unhappy country. The English captured her later on and condemned her to be burnt to I death. It was a French judge who sentenced her and probably French people who burnt her to death.

THE PRODUCTIONS OF CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 28 June 1912
The Productions ok Canada. By Maggie Jones, Grade VII. Around Manitoba in Canada are dense forests and iu after years when these will be cleared away, rich, fer tile plains will be left. People settle and cultivate the. soil and a lai'ge quantity of wheat is grown. Canada is competing, on a small scale with Australia in the growing of this grain ; it also com petes with the United States. In these forests animals are found and are very valuable on account of their fur. Vancouver Island and near the Eas tern coast are noted for salmon and other fish, Gold is found on the Yukon River and also at the Klondike gold fields. The climate is rather warmer than that of Great Britain but in winter it is much colder, British Columbia enjoys the nicest climate of Canada. The Canadian Bad Lands take up a vast area of Canada, Nothing much is grown on them as tliey are too bleak and miserable to live on.

' He would cough so long that I thought he would break a blood vessel. I was really frightened for him, because he is not strong, and continual coughing made his chest quite sore.

A STITCHER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 28 June 1912
A STITCHER. An announcement comes from Paris to the effect that a surgeon has in vented a sewing machine for use after operations, and in place of the stitch ing by hand. The doctor, in the' first instance, constructed -his machine by way of recreation, but the results, were such that he has felt justified in in troducing it to members of the profes sion. Each stitch, it is said, occupies only the fraction of a second, and is effected with a precision far superior to that of the most deft fingers. One of the most nutritious of nuts 1b that known as the 'Queensland,' a species of the candle-nut. The So ciety Islanders, after slightly balking the nuts in an oven and removing the shell, bore holes through the kernels and string them on rushes, hanging them up in their huts to be used as torches, which are made by enclosing four or five strings in a leaf of the screw-pine. These torches are often used in fishing by night, and burn with much brilliancy. The lampblack used in tattooing is...

MEASURE YOUR THUMB. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 28 June 1912
MEASURE YOUR THUMB. The thumb confesses the man; no man is clever enough to deceive it. It has been divided into three parts, typ ifying the three qualities that master the world — will, logic and love. The first, or nail phalange, signifies will; the second, logic ; the third, which is the boundary of the Mount of Venus, love. When the thumb is unequally de voinnofl ntirl the first nhalanee is ex tremely long, it is neither ^ love nor logic that governs the individual, but merely sheer will. . If the middle phalange be much longer than the first, reason predominates; yet the man may not have the power to will himself to do that which his reason dict&toSi When the third phalange is long' and the thumb is short, man is reveal ed as the slave of the senses, guided neither by will nor reason. If the thumb is supple-jointed, th® individual is easy-going, spendthrift, careless of time, money, energy, op portunity, and all things. .If it be firm-jointed he is cautious, watchful, k...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 28 June 1912
It is but a few weeks since an ar ticlo appeared in these columns urging the local Shire Council to awake to its responsibilities and make some move in the direction of establishing a small hospital in the Dargo district, to be available for sufferers in cases of emer gency, but either through lack of courage in facing the small financial problem which such a scheme would of necessity involve, or a want ot sympathy for those iu dire distress, the impor tance of the project or the merits of the suggestions offered did not commend themselves to the Council as being of sufficient public concern to promote so much as an informal discussion at the Council table, and the matter has, up to the present, been allowed to remain in abeyance. A most distress ing exemplification of the urgent need for medical aid in that district, which we have unsuccessfully endeavored to impress upon those in authority, is the case of Mrs Alex. Guy- of Talbotville. Tidings of Mrs Guy's serious indisposi tion w...

An Object Lesson. The factory of the Upper Maffra Co operative Butter and Cheese Fac-' tory Company Limited, which is situated at Newry, six miles . from Maffra, is a substantial brick struc ture. Although the sphere of its operations is somewhat circumscibed,, as the factory does not send out any collecting vans and /all the supplies are drawn from within a radius of' eisht or nine rni!e=, its record, is a particular fine one, The Upper.

A Millionaire Prodigal^ THE STORY OF A MAN'S REPENTANCE. ~ 'Money! Why, of course, money is the greatest power in all the world — tne conqueror's staff! Now, I'm not saying^this to flatter you, Mr. Becton, for you of all men know that I'm speaking the truth; everything can be bought by money.' Lady Elizabeth Chester, familiarly known ft) Iier numerous friends and acquaintances as Lady Betty, smiled boldly, audaciously, at William Bec ton, who had just purchased the big gest house in Park Lane, and now must needs marry a wife — a wife who would help him in the spending of hia millions, a wife he could hang with jewels, load with furs and lace. Lady Betty had quite made up her mind to marry William Becton and be .his wife, for the charming red-haired ... widow, Lady Betty, with the pretty impudent little face of a street gamin and the blood of a hundred earls in her veins, had got thoroughly sick of . poverty during the days of her first marriage — a marriage that had been a love matc...

Trials of Settlers. ? w ? ' I have not forgotten ray experi ence in the Talbotville and Dargo country, and I am recommending the Cabinet to p'ace a substantial sum on the Estimates to protide for having the roads improved so as to mitigate in some degree the hard lives which the sturdy settlers have to live.' Mr Edgar, the Minister for Public Works, thus expressed himself on Friday regarding the roads iu .ihe remote parts of Gippsland which he recently visited. He went on to say that the experience of Mrs A. Gay, who had to be conveyed for treat ment to tbe Sale hospital by'52 men working in relays, was unfortunately not singular. As to the conveyance of the body of the late Mr John Nolan, a centenarian, from Crooked River to Talbotville, a distance of 11 miles over tracks and Btreams, he could picture the sad procession, because the old man was dying whea Mr Edgar was recently visiting the district, and the funeral arrange ments were then being considered. Mr Edgar added not only w...
