A TOO-CLEVER FORGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
A TOO-CLEVER FORGERY. While it is no easy matter for a violin maker to rival the famous Stra divarius instruments, an American maker once 'did this, and did it in so effectual a manner that experts pro nounced his violin a genuine Stradi varius. The successful man was Geo. Gemunder, who died some ten years ago. His remarkable ability as a mak er of violins was known to many a distinguished player, such as Ole Bull, Remenyi, . and. 'Wilhelmj, but he achieved — so runs the story—his : . greatest success at the last Paris Ex position. To that exhibition he Bent an imitation Stradivarius,. and, to test its merits, had it placed on exhibition as the genuine article. A committee of experts carefully examined the instrument and pro nounced it a Stradivarius. So far Gemunder's triumph was complete, hut now came a difficulty. When he olaim ed that it was not an old violin, 'hut a new one made by himself, the com mittee would not believe him. They declared that he had never made the instrumen...

M'Lachlan, M.L.A, The deputation asked, on behalf of the Avon Shire Council, for a grant of I £1000 towards building a bridge over the Avon river at Clydebank. In reply, the Minister said that until substantial relief had' been afforded to the settlers in. the Dargo and Talbot ville . districts he would not give the request favorable consideration. He had recently seen for himself the fright-, ?ful disadvantages under which the settlers-were laboring in the northern portions of the shire, whicn the shire council seemed to have neglected. The increase in the valuation of the whole shire during the last twenty years was only £6000, while in the richer portion there had been no increase, at all. He would hot consider ...
LEGEND OF THE FADELESS ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
LEGEND OP THE FADELE8S ROSE. In Spain the elders tell the legend oer To listeners about the rose-hung door. Once in a castle dwelt two lords of Old, One kind of heart, the other cruel, cold. One eye the warder came who guards the gates, And said: 'A figure at the portal waits 'It would not enter in, but bids me ' say That it would speak with you without ? delay.' Then, cried the 'baron dark: 'Swift shall I go! This begging one strength of my arm shall know.' Returning later, answered he: 'I smote A beggar bold and cast him in the moat.' The warder came again with cringing mien — 'A figure at the outer gate is seen.' 'This time I go,' the gentle knight replied, 'Such nights as these worn travellers have died.' Returning, in his hand a rose he held From whose white heart a wondrous perfume welled. .? . -. He said: 'I saw a maiden at the door; She vanished in the stormwind's gusfy roar. 'This rose she gave me which her bosom bore, And said that it would bloom for ever more.' And even n...

LIFE OF THE PIONEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
Life of the Pioneers. Bv O.M.S,, Grade VIII. Although some settlers thought of no better place than the grog-shop to drown their disappointing thoughts, it is not to be thought that all of thero did so. For even though in an endless forest their thoughts did not fail to float back to the Almighty one who caused a tree to grow in a certain spot and not a buttercup ; but the buttercup was content with knowing ' that God wished for a buttercup just there where it was growing.' The scene was appalling and helped too to convey their thoughts to Him. One of our pioneers, W. O'dell Ray mond describes part of a trip from Western Port to Gippsland in which j he says that for the first 14 miles of his journey he was able to bring some few horses with him to carry the provisions but owing to the denseness of the scrub at the spot was forced to leave them. For the next eeventeen days W. O'dell Raymond and party proceeded at the rate of about eight miles a day. They, however, managed to exist to...

VIEWS OF THE ICONOCLAST. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
VIEWS OF THE ICONOCLAST. By Walt Mason.. We are living in an age of won derful achievement (said the school master). Great deeds have become so common that we accept them as a matter of course. Within a year or two both the north and the south pole have been discovered, after a hundred years of vain effort. It sends a thrill through -me to reflect that I have lived to witness such triumphs. It doesn't send any thrill throush me (remarked the village patriarch). I have been worried over many dif ferent things in the course of my life. Last spring, for instance, there were indications of a late frost, and I walk ed the floor all night worrying over the probability that the peach buds would be killed in my back yard. Just a couple of weeks ago my dog was sick and I feared he was poisoned, and I worried over it for several days. I have had my share- of care, but I never lost a minute's sleep over the ?fact that the north or south pole was missing. Now that both poles have been found I c...
