Answered. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
Answered. - A lawyer the other day said to a countryman, in a smock frock, who was undergoing his examination In the witness-box, 'You, sir; you in the smock frock; how much are you paid for lying?' 'Less than you are, sir, unfortunately,' was the unexpect ed reply, 'or you would be in a smock frock, too.' A little girl had been very naughty, so her mother told her that she must have no pudding for dinner. Later, the others ate a nice jam-pudding, while the culprit received only bread and butter. 'Now, Kitty,' said her mother, at the end of the meal, 'say grace.' , Kitty obeyed. Closing her . eyes and folding her hands she said, With em phasis: — 'For what they have received, may they be truly thankful.' He's a poor minister whose voice fiila the church and empties the pews.

The Wool Clip. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
The Wool Clip. We have received a copy of Dal gety's Annual Wool Review for Australasia for the past season, pub lished by Dalgety and Company, Limited, which is now in its four teenth year of issue, and, as cus tomary, appears to have been carefully written, while the statistics which relate to the whole of the Australasian sales are complete and comprehensive. There are a number of interesting facts given in tbe pub lication, tbe most prominent of which probably is that the value of the past season's wool production in Aus tralia and New Zealand, for export, was 29£ million sterling, as com. pared with 31 h million sterling for the previous season, the. differerence in tne value or tne two cups oemg accounted for by the average valne per bale in 1911-12 having been £11 15/5, and in 1910-11, £12/10/4.

HOW THE KNOB GOT ITS NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
How the Knob got its Namh. By Carrie Hopkins, Grade VI. In the early dayB. of Stratford, there were rases 'held, in the ground which is now the cemetery. These races were held* on New Year's Day, bnt .some of the people of the. town did not like having to take their children to the racecourse, and there wete no other sports for them to go to, so some of tha parents thought that they would start a picnic, in the paddock then called the Govern ment paddock, or the police paddock, because the police used to keep their horses in it, instead of going to the races. So about the year 1856 a picnic was started, and after it had been held for fifty years, the people decided to have a vote among them selves and get a name for the ground which they had had for a picnic ground so long. A number of names were given, and among them was the Knob. Many of the people had called the hill that is there the Knob for many years past, and they thought it would be a good name to to call the paddcck, and t...
KATHERINE. A CHARMING TALE OF A WOMAN'S DETERMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
K ATHERIN E. A CHARMING TALE OF A WOMAN'S DETERMINATION. I. It was a narrow, unlovely little shop when Katherine first saw it, typical of the narrow, unlovely little street iu which it stood. As she entere-.?, John Sneyd looked up from the much thumbed ledger over which he had been poring. He was a tall, cadaver ous young man, with a pale face, tired eyes, and a manner at once apologetic and business-like — in a wora, typica; of the small tradesman who is slow ly being exterminated by the big limited liability companies and the co-operative stores. Katherine met his abstracted glance with an air of appealing deference. A natural instinct for the dramatic liad taugut her to dress and act tin; part of an out-of-work shop assist ant to a nicety. Her hat was of the season before' last; her dress neat, but shabby to the point when shabbi uess verges upon the threadbare. 'I saw your advertisement for a confectionery assistant in this morn ing's paper,' she began, 'and 1 thought perhaps— —...
DAIRYING. INVESTIGATIONS OF METHODS OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
dairying. INVESTIGATIONS OF METHODS OF MILKING. Professor F. W . Woll, of the U niversity of Wisconsin, reports in Bulletin No. 96 the results of a thorough investigation of methods of milking. The following is a summary of the investigations reported in this bulletin : 1. me milking experiments conducted 6y the writer were made partly with cows in our university herd, and partly with eows in twelve differeni Wisconsin dairy herds. The aim in all cases was to ascertain the gain in the production of milk and butter fat obtained by a system of manipulation of the udder after the regfjjar milking was finished (Hegelund method); where the regular milker did not milk clean, the gain obtained by clean milking together with manipulation of the adder was ascertained. The plan of the experiments was therefore snch as to show the character of the work done by the different milkers. 2. In our university herd the average Jaily production of milk from 24 cows was increased by 4.5 per cent, by me...

LOOK ABOUT YOU. Chats with the Ambitious—and Others. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
LOOK ABOUT YOU. I Chats with the Ambitious — and I Others. By Orison Swett Marrten. It is a sorry day for a young man who cannot see any opportunities where he is, but who only sees chances somewhere else. . Years ago some Brazilian sliephe.-ds organised a party to go to California to dig gold, and took along a handful of translucent pebbles to play check ers with on the voyage. After arriv ing in ban i-rancisco, ana alter tney had thrown most of the pebbles away, they discovered that they were dia monds. They hastened back to Bra zil, only to find that the mines from which the pebbles had been gathered had been taken up by other prospec tors and sold to the government. A Baltimore society woman lost a valuable diamond necklet at a ball, and supposed that it was stolen from the pocket of her cloak. Years after wards, poor and distressed, she wash ed the steps of the Peabody Institute, pondering how to get money to buy food. One day she cut up an old, worn-out, ragged cloak to make a...
ON LOOKING ONE'S BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
1 ON LOOKING ONE'S BEST. j By 'Mrs. Harris.' ! ? 1 She is still with us — though, thank goodness, ever in decreasing numbers ; — the woman who never makes the ' best of herself. . She belongs to one 1 of two classes — the naturally indol- \ ent and indifferent, or the consciously j superior. She is pretty hopeless in whichever class we meet her, but 1 when she patronises and pities you ' she touches the limit of human pa tience. Lucky for us if the superior one be only friend or acquaintance; if she be a relative then life has more than its average of pin-pricks. She will be like one of those mirrors in which everything is magnified — when you look at her all your little vanities, all your harmless attempts at beauty culture, will be. thrown back upon you as grievous sins. Don't we know her, my old and young frifends, this paragon of an elder sister, aunt, or cousin, whose hair seems to have been pasted to her head in her youth and never been touched since, whose waist has van ished...
OLD MAIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
OLD MAIDS. By George Fitch. The subject of old maids must be approached with caution, just as ona. approaches old maids themselves — es- pecially when they are endeavoring 'to become young married women. An old maid is a middle-aged young lady whose name is so durable that she has never had to replace it. Wo men usually begin to become old maids at the age of 30 and continue to be old maids at that age, or there abouts, until they die. When it comes to a matter of birthdays the old maid is one of our most unprogressive citi zens. Some women are old maids because their faces .are their misfortune; some are old maids because they are'equal ly afraid of men and mice, whilst others are old maids because when they were young and beautiful they fished for whales and threw back one minnow too many. In general, the sect is divided into two classes — those who have not yet lost hope and those who are still afraid that in some moment of foolishness they may yet get. married. Old maids live al...
FROM THE WISDOM TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 July 1912
FROM THE WISDOM TREE. Unfortunately politeness is omitted from the code of our elementary schools. The person who says he has no use for poetry may easily be made to see that it is not his misfortune, but his fault. nt fllA i1nni» r\f ovorv. ruiiuuo AUU^IVD ai tuc UUW4 Ui. body; but we ought not to expect it to kick the panels in. Children who are not very naughty are not often of very great use in after life. All the most valuable and essen tial things in the life of to-day are things that do not pay. War benefits the financiers, but is ruinous to the people. The only man who can strive for better things is he' who already has a gleam of hope. Life is like a game of football; the worst feature of which is that most people think they are the ball, when they are really the players. Strife between -nations has always been due, not to accident, but to the temper behind an incident. - You can never thoroughly appre ciate a good book until you have tried, however imperfectly, to write a ...
Reminiscences of the Past. Park XII. A TRIP TO THE LAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
Reminiscences of the Past. Part XII. I A Trip to the Lakes. Very many years ago the conditions pertaining to the Gippsland Lakes, and the rivers emptying into them, ?was very different to what it is to -? day. At that time the water in them was much deeper than now, and they were more tbickly bordered with rushes and reeds than at the present time, and in many, places it had encroached upon the land, this has happened in the main since the open ing of the new entrance. Two or three schooners, and at times a steamer were sufficient to deal with , ihe cargo, and passengers available ' who had sufficient courage to face the dangers attendant upon negotiating the old entrance, with its bar and sn.nd banks, awajr up by the Red jBluff, east of .Cunningham, and .this . plaee was but a mere''haiiilet. inhabi ted by a few lishermen, with only a boarding house aud one hotel. No . . navigation^ companies then catered : for regular steamer traffic, as is the * case to-day, arid the Lakes were i...
