STRATFORD POLICE COURT FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1911. (Before Messrs G. J. Crockett and D Bourke, J's.P. A WAGES DISPUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
STRATFORD POLICE COURT. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Friday, Novemher 3, 1911. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (Before Messrs G. J. Crockett and D Bourke, J's.P. . A WAGES DISPUTE. Samuel Kerr Christie v J. A. Andrews. Claim : £5 3, balance of money due for work and labor done. Mr Staveley appeared for com- plainant and Mr Beecher for defen- &nbsp; dant. Samuel Kerr Christie, farm laborer, deposed : I know the defendant. On the advice of a mutual friend I went to see Mr Andrews on 20th February last, and commenced work next day. A few days after I went there he asked me what wages I would re- quire, and I asked him to suggest something. He offered me 17s 6d per week. I said I had been told I ought to get 20s or 25s a week for the work. He said he did not mind paying me £1. There was nothing mentioned about only getting £1 per week while ploughing. I worked f...
PLANTS BREAKING UP AN ISLAND [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
PLANTS BREAKING UP AN ISLAND The layman would scarcely asso ciate great strength with so delicate and fragile a thing as maidenhair fern, yet if its roots have not suffi cient room they will break the pot in which the plants grows. Blades of' grass will force the kerbstones be tween which they spring, up out of their place, and in a . single night a crop '..of .small mushrooms has been known to 'lift a large s^orie. ^Indeed, plants are' on record as having bro ken the hardest rocks. The island of Aldabra, to the north west of Madagascar, is becoming smaller through the action of the mangroves that grow along the foot of the cliffs. They eat their way into the rock in all directions, and irito the gaps thus formed the waves force their way. In time they will prob ably reduce the island to pieces. A miner took his boots for repairs, but was not in a hurry to pay for them. After a few weeks had elapsed the shoemaker called to ask for his money. The miner's wife answered the door, and o...
VARIATIONS IN APPETITE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
VARIATIONS IN APPETITE. There are obvious variations in the degree of normal appetite in different individuals and at different periods of life. The man of sedentary habits cannot expect to compete with one who snends an active life out of doors. The man and the woman differ, so do the younger and the elder, and in a notable degree the boy and the man. The vigorous appetite of boyhood is virtually a synonym of health. A rate of daily consumption which would in most men be gluttony is in young, growing lads almost too common to attract notice. The explanation is not difficult when we take into ac count two chief conditions of exist ence at this age— the growth going on in every organ and tissue, and a very liberal allowance of active bodily ex ertion. In the circumstances a sparing rule of diet would be unnatural and injurious. Measures of restriction are most wise when they are used to regu late the wholesomeness of food and the times of eating rather than the quantity consumed. It ...
WHAT QUEENS SPEND ON DRESS [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
WHAT QUEENS SPEND ON DRESS Queen Mary has not yet been suffi ciently long on the Throne for her to be able to estimate exactly what it will cost her each year for dress, rt takes at least three years for any Queen to be able to gauge this closely from actual experience. But so far, owing to the ceremonies which neces sitate costly variations of dress, the Queen has found that she can hardly do what is required in this way at a less cost than £2000 per annum, though this sum may (and probably will) be considerably curtailed in a year or two when she has got all this department into full, working order. Queen Alexandra used to find not less than £2000 necessary for a simi lar purpose. She had, as a rule, eight really gorgeous dresses each year from Paris, and she made it her prac tice never to appear twice in the same gown. Yet she was not extravagant, as Queens go, for she kept a staff of clever seamstresses, who recast such gowns after they had been once or twice worn, and made them...

The State elections take place on Thursday next, and in connection therewith we have arranged to have progress return wired from Melbourne up till midnight on that date. The returns, which will be for the whole of the electorates in the State, will be posted every half- hour in front of the Sentinel office. Mr S. Christie met with a nasty accident on Wednesday night. In company with two friends he was walking over the railway bride when he stumbled and fell over the side, a distance of about 15 feet, luckily es caping with nothing worse than a sprained ankle, Mr A, L. Johnson, secretary and engineer of the Avon shire, has re signed his position, having been ap pointed town clerk and engineer to the Borough of Sale. A call of the Avon Shire Council will be made for Wednesday, 22nd inst., when the matter of striking the rate and. re ceiving the secretary's resignation will be dealt with.

Hope Springs Eternal. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
Hope Springs Eternal. Jones: We have missed you at the club. You haven't been in the place since your wife died, you know. Smith: I know, but don't worry. I shall marry again. The school inspector was examin ing the boys at a village school. Dur ing the grammar test he put a few posers. 'Now,' he said, pointing to a simple looking youth, in the first row, 'Can you tell me what vowels are?' The youth grinned at the simplicity of the question. 'Vowls, zer? Why, vowls be chickens.' A Lancashire man was one day talk ing of the style in which his towns people were keeping up the dignity of their town council. 'Why nobbut just lately we bought our Mayor a new collar and chain,' he said with pride. 'Have you?' said his friend, who lived in another town some distance away. 'Why, we let's yon, beggar of ours run loose,'

Full Up. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 November 1911
Full Up. The railway carriage was crowded, but a very fat old gentleman who sat by the window calmly ignored the om inous looks of the passengers for tak ing up so much room. A boy selling buns poked his head in at the window, and inquired: I 'Buns, sir?' The old gentleman was slightly deaf, ! and, not noticing the bunsr thought the ! boy wanted a seat in the already pack, ed carriage, so he remarked: 'Full up, my boy ! No more room inside!' A roar of laughter followed his re ply, and the old gentleman innocently wondered as to the cause of their merriment.
THE ONLY WOMAN JUDGE IN THE WORLD. Her Views on "Votes for Women." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
THE ONLY WOMAN JUDGE IN I THE WORLD. Her Views on 'Votes for Women.' Lady lawyers and lady policemen we are somewhat familiar with, and now the lady judge has arrived in the person of Mrs. Lydia Berkley Tague, of the County Court of Eagle County, Colorado. A few months ago her husband, who was Judge Peter Tague, died, and the County Commis sioners were so impressed with his wife's capabilities that they gave her his place on the bench. Mrs. Tague's father was a judge, and her earliest memory is that of going into the old court-room and hearing her father try cases. Apparently the County Commission ers believe that she is the right per son in the right place, for although there were half-a-dozen applicants for the appointment after her husband's ^death, they asked her to take his -place. She protested that she was not a lawyer, but the Commissioners declared that they did not need a law-' yer but wanted some common sense. People call Mrs. Tague 'the common sense judge,' because they ...
THE VALUE OF CURRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
THE VALUE OF CURRANTS. ' If young mothers, and indeed all those whose duty it is to cater for a household, only knew what a valuable food there is ready to hand in dried currants the fruit would be on the table every day. These little grape berries contain over three times as much actual nourishment as an equal weight of lean beef.. Currants contain ] several most important delicious fruit acids, which not only cool the blood and help the digestion, but prevent j skin complaints. There are scores of ' ways of cooking them, and . we give some good recipes below: — Currant Fingers. — Roll out half a pound of short paste into a square, and cut it in two, cover thickly with cur rants; put small portions of butter here and there, also a dash of nutmeg; sprinkle all over' with sugar. Cover with another sheet of paste, press all round, prick all over with a fork and bake; when finished, take out, cover with sugar, and cut into fingers. Currant Tartlets. — Some rich puff pastry, six tablesp...
4THE LOCOMOTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
THE LOCOMOTIVE. The number of puffs which a loco motive gives in a given distance is governed entirely by the size of its driving wheels. For every turn of the wheels it gives four separate puffs, liierefore, if the circumference of the driving wheels is 20 feet — which is about the average— ana tne tram is going at fifty miles an hour, we get 880 puffs a minute. The cough or puff is. due to the abrupt emission of waste steam from the smoke stack. When there are more than eighteen puffs a second the human ear cannot distinguish them separately. A locomotive engine is such a com n on object that one rarely considers how wonderful a machine it actually is. We think a good deal of a motor car that does 10,000 miles a year and lasts five years. An ordinary locomo tive's work is 20,000 miles a year, and its life is twenty years. A train travelling at sixty miles an hour can be stopped within .120 yards. But enough power is lost in so doing to carry the train nearly fifteen miles over a l...
THE STRIKE, A POWERFUL STORY OF A GREAT INDUSTRIAL CRISIS, AND HOW THE MEN'S LEADER RESPONDED TO A WOMAN'S INSPIRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
THE STRIKE, A POWERFUL STORY OF A GREAT INDUSTRIAL CRISIS, AND HOW THE-MEN'S LEADER RESPONDED TO A WOMAN'S INSPIRATION. A woman on the fringe of the surg ing crowd of strikers that opened to let him pass to the conference raised her white-faced baby above her head and cried shrilly, 'God bless Brins-i ley ! ' On the steps leading to the hall where he, as the chosen representa tive of the men, was to meet the own ers of the great railway, , Brinsley turned tb look back at the thousands of haggard, hunger-drawn faces. For days, weeks, these men. had been fighting, not capital alone, but starva tion — fighting it boldly, valiantly, al though subconsciously they realised that it was not they themselves who had borne the brunt of battie. Men. alone, never pay the price of a labor _ war; it is the women and children ^p-who 'decide its duration. For weeks the great railroad had been idle, -the engine yards deserted; less than a mile out of the town and at a point wher^ a cutting in the hil...

Eve in Gippsland. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
Eve in Gippsland. w ? The committee of the teongatha Public Library has by resolution removed Mark Twain's ' Eve's Diary,' on account of the alleged indecency of the illustrations. Eve came wandering back to earth, White and fragrant as a flower ; Joyous in her second birth, Drank the sunshine for an hour ; Then on swift feet made a sally, Running through a Gippsland valley. Henry Pumblechook, J.P., Looked amid the ferns, and saw - Dazzling limbs, hair flowing free, - Panting breast without a flaw, Lips as bright as budding roses .... Pumblechook said ' Holy Moses !' Not a thought of Eden ran Through the mind of Pumblechook, Though (like every pious man) He had read the Holy Book. Pumblechook without dolay Sent for Constable O'Shea. Shrouded was her hair aflame, Covered was her blinding glory ; She must don the garb of shame In a grim reformatory ; Happy Eve is now a goner JudMns preached a sermon on hor.

Dutson. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 November 1911
Dutson. (From our own correspondent). ? The opening of the newly-formed tennis court took place last week in the presence of a good assemblage of local residents. The opening set was played by Miss Legge and Mrs J. T. M'Naughton and Messrs J. T. M'Naughton and J. V. Meehan. The court is a handsome addition to the spacious schoolground, which has been prettily planted in the past with trees of all kinds. Afternoon tea was supplied by the ladies with their usual liberality. There is no game in which mere enjoyment for both sexes can be found than tennis, and the Dutson people are to be congratulated on their enterprise. A tennis match has been arranged for to-morrow (Saturday) between Longford and Stratford, on the ground of the latter. Longford will be re presented by Messrs Tann, Stephen son, Parker and Meehan.
