MEDICAL MEMS. INSENSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
MEDICAL MEM8. INSENSIBILITY. An article on the various forms of insensibility would be of service, not merely to those who take an interest 1 in the application of ambulance or j first-aid principles, but likewise to the public at large, who are apt to come in I contact with cases of unconscious ness. Undoubtedly this topic is one j of much importance, if only for the ' reason that the causes of insensibi'- . ity are of extremely varied nature, and also because the treatment pro per -to one case, it must be obvious, is not in the least adapted for the relief of another. It may be well in the first place rapidly to enumerate some of the chief causes whereby insensi bility may be produced. In the first place, a person mayr. be found insen sible as the result of Etfccident, which, producing concussion of the brain, has rendered him unconscious. A series of causes, differing in nature it is tru?, may be found in the next place, in cluded under the term 'fits.' Thus we have a common fain...
Thoughts of Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
Thoughts of Marriage. They are too precocious, these present-day kids. Brown met a little fellow in the street the other morning, and, seeing books under his , arm, started conversation with: 'Well, well, are you going to school 'Course I am,' sneered the infant; 'I'm over six.' 'And do you love your teacher?' 'No fear; the old hen's too old for me!' A farmer's wife, who had no roman tic ideas about the opposite sex, and who spent her busy days hurrying from churn to sink, from sink to shed, and shed to kitchen stove, was asked if she wanted the vote. 'No, I certainly don't! ' she replied. 'I say if there's one little thing that the men folk can do alone, for good ness sake let 'em do it!' To make the best of things is to become a public -benefactor without the profession of philanthropy. An angry man may easily be ap peased if we can succeed in making him smile. The legal existence of juries was first recorded in Plantagenet times. At one time a jury that could -not agree was place...

ALFRED THE GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
Alfred the Great. By Hylda Gray, Grade VI., About a thousand years ago, a brave king named Alfred the Great, ruled over England. In those times, very often great bands of fierce looking men, called Danes, used To come across the North Sea, into the country. They burnt the towns, killed every man, woman, and child they could lay hands on, and carried off the spoils with them. The English were very much afraid of these savage men, and at last, afier many difficult attempts to drive them out, Alfred was obliged to flee to the woods. He made up his mind to stay in the woods, until he could raise enough soidiers to drive his enemies out of the country- He -therefore dressed himself up in common clothes, and lived in a herdsman's hut, where he acted as a servant, to the herdsman, for some time. While Alfred was with' the herds man, every chance he got, be was making arrows, and things fcr the fight. Alfred was very acxious to know the plans of the Danes.

THE GREAT PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 July 1912
The Great Plague. »By May Fleming, Grade VI. During King Charles' reign a great plague visited London. All who could afford to leave the plague stricken city fled, and there was so little trafllc that grass grew on the street. On the door of each house where a sufferer lay there was a yre&t red cross and the words, ' Lord have mercy upon us I' A dreadful stillness fell, upon the city, broken by the rumbling of the dead-carts and the cry, ' Briug forth your dead I' In six months 100,000 people died. ' Be clean,' was the message of the plague but the f eiple were hard to learn. And it was bard to cleanse the narrow streets of wooden houses ; and the Great Fire of London that came the next year was a blessing in disguise 4.000 streets of wooden bouses were destroyed and healthier homes arose upon the ashes.

. i Beminiscences of the Past. ? ? » ? PARTX. 'HONEY POINT.' The number of aboriginals in the districts' now known as Nuntin and Yeerurg, when the land ??''was. first settled upon, was a. perpetual'- menace to \ he safety of residents. The great attraction to them was the abundant supply of game of all descriptions, apart from their later propensity for spearing cattle and sheep ; and the . thick scrub and- reeds . along the courses of creeks and rive: s, offered splendid cover to these maurauders. X3ut of this the whites had often to hunt them, and in this consisted the chief danger: Kangaroo, wallaby Imstard and black dnck, as well as .tish were 'there, and tribes of blacks from all quarters looked upon this] 3ocality--.as probably their best hunt- I Ing ground in Gippsland. Tribal i iiyjits and corroboiies were of or-'j diuaiy cccurience, and aboriginal 1 ?weapons- are to-be found-- to this day.

Sis Anarchist Bride. By Robert Halifax. 'A veiled lady? — wants five hundred pounds here and now?' Mr. Magniac dropped his fat cigar and stared with a sinister fixity that struck his new clerk as very peculiar in the sole proprietor of a concern re putedly able to lend thousands with out bother at a moment's notice, and i doing apparently very little business even on those enticing terms. 'Five hundred, sir,' said the new clerk, firmly courteous. 'I fancy/' he added, as if moved to soften the ordeal for the client outside, 'I fancy she has some trouble and took me for the proprietor here.' 'I should say she's insane,' mutter ed Magniac. He rose, smoothed his oily black hair before a little mirror, forced' a sort of fatherly smile, and turned, rubbing his hands. 'Tm ready. You're not quite up to this ; business yet, Haines. You should say I'm 'out' to that sort of person, and get th5m to leave behind the fullest particulars of the trouble in writing. Then I've got something useful to...
