Eow the Poor Lived in the Fourteenth Ckhtub*. By Kathleen Galway, Grade VIII. See if you can pictnre before yonr mind a ditcher who is moving heavily to his home at the close of a winter's day, He lias been in the field since sunrise, and he has a stupid, ox-like, I air of a man who is dazed by long bodily toil. His dress consists' of a single wollen garment drawn around his waist by a belt of rope, in which is stuck a knife which is used for cutting bread or for his own defence in a quarrel. His 'hovel is fcuilt of daub aiid wattle. It lets in the wind at many points and crevices but de spite all this the room has a sour foul smell. The evening meal is eaten in silence. There is plenty to , eat but the food is coarse. The bread is as dark aa mud and as tough as leather- There is no tea, sugar, or tobacco yet known in England, there fore the father cannot smoke after the meal is over. They all huddle round tne ure ior warmtn as mere is no pictures to look at and they cannot read so ...

Japan, By Elsie Richards, Grade IV. I In Japan they don't wear boots but they wear sandals and when they are coming inside they just slip off their sandals and walk inside. When they want a ride they get in a waggon which is just like a buggy. There is a man that draws it and they call him a manhorse, he can run as hard as any horse can run all day. They go to school and the girls are only taught to do a little reading and writing. They go to school at seven o'clock in the morning and they leave off work at, twelve o'clock and the rest of the afternoon is left for work or for play.
Mechanics' Institute. OPENING OF THE BILLIARD ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
Mechanics' Institute. OPENING OP THE BILLIARD ROOM. On Monday evening last, after many years of persistent striving on the part of a certain section, and opposition on the part of others, the billiard room at the Mechanic's Insti tute was formerly opened. By 8 p.m. the hour fixed for the opening, a large crowd, including several ladies, had assembled, and the gathering was unanimous in the opinion that both the room and the appointments were a credit to those responsible for them. The contractor, for the building, Mr A, Bremner, has well and faithfully carried out his work, and the room' is one which, for its especial purpose, it would indeed be hard to improve on. The table is one of Allcock & Co's best productions, and it was installed by Mr W. H. Carter, in a manner which must give every satisfaction to the devotees of the green cloth. Cr W. H. Carter (President of the Mechanic's Institute) cordially wel comed those who had attended to witness the opening ceremony, and ex...

An Imaginart Trip From Inver CARGALL TO AUCKLAND — Br THIS East Coast. By Olive Smith. Grade VIII. I At last we are on the broad, blue Pacific Ocean, plowing our way through the calm waters. The shouts and wavings of the people on the pier still seem real, although they have faded out of sight, and night is closing o'er us with surprising 'rapidity. Morning broke clear and bright, and very soon passengers came on deck to see the glorious sun-rise. Our captain being an amiable gentle man, spoke freely to the passengers, and I for one, was glad I did not wait for the next boat. About noon all hands were summoned 011 deck, and passengers below m their cabins. We could hear the orders of the cap tain but faintly as, by this time, the storm was at its highest. We put in at Dunedin, after the storm had abated, although had our ship not needed repairing, our course would have led us past it. Having completed the repairs we again resumed our journey. The passengers, too, had regained spirit...

REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR GIRL. By Helen Rowland. When a man is talking love a wis# woman listens to only what he doesn't say. Somewhere in heaven there is a pearly throne with a cushioned seat waiting for the man who never comes home too early nor too late, but al ways just at the psychological mo ment, for dinner. A husband and wife used to belong to each other; but in these days of - simplified divorce they are merely temporarily leased to one another. As long as burglars and lunatics are permitted to enter the holy bonds of matrimony the world will continue to, be filled with little burglarettes and lunatickets. The man who puts off marrying un til the autumn of life, like the man who defers his summer vacation un til July, is likely to find the world a chilly, empty place whence all th« roses have fled. A husband's manners have so much more to do with domestic happiness than his morals! DoubtlesB, a cheery, ; complimentary burglar might he eas ier to live with than a critical s...

District Notes. (From .our own correspondents). SOUTH BUCHAN. After an exceptionally dry Autnmri which caused a deal of trouble to ' farmers and graziers we are now having a very wet Winter, which is causing many of the poor stock to die. For the month of June we had 433 points, and so far for this month , 250 has been registered to 15th, and still raining. On any of the low-land this is too much, but for Buchan it comes in handy. Tha 'sub-di vision sale of the Buchan.Estate is fixed, for September 12, when it is expected some keen bidding will occur. There have been some hundreds of pigs sold from here these last few weeks, and still more to follow. On the whole, prices have been only 'middling. . ' The marble quarry has closed for the winter owing to the wet weather. The butter factory is to be opened again on the 7th August, bnt the out-pu^ will be small for a time. A tea-meeting, concert and ball is to be held on September 23, in aid of the Bush .Nursing Association. The nurse w...
THE LEGEND OF ST. GEORGE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
THE LEGEND OF ST. GEORGE. Than St. George, the patron and tutelar saint of England, no saint has been more popular or more univers ally accepted, and the legend of his encounter with the dragon never fails to thrill. It was when St. George was travel ling to - join his legion, after the Egyptian campaign, in which he had greatly distinguished himself, that he passed through Silene, in Lybia, where the inhabitants were in great distress, owing to the appearance of a dragon in a lake near the city. In order to appease its hunger, the citizens had been obliged to feed it daily with a sheep or two; but soon the sheep were exhausted, and they then had to sacrifice the children. The chivalry of St. George was aroused on hearing this, and the next time the dragon appeared he rode forth to meet it, and, after a terrible conflict, transfixed it with his lance, which broke. The Emperor Diocletian sent St. George to Britain, where Constantino and his wife, Helena, had taken up their residence ...
