THE CHARACTER OF HEMRY II. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
The Character ok Hemrt II. By A, Thomson, Grade VI. I Henry II was a very strong king and also in mind. He was clever and tireless in body. He had a short 'bull-neck and bowed legs. The king before Henry, had no right to be king, this was Stephen. Stephen wanting to be good friends with the Barons, he let them build castles. When the barons built their castles they turned againBt him. They became very powerful- Henry -ordered all the castles that were built in Stephen's reign to be destroyed because the Barons treated the people so badly. 'The poor ye have always 'with you' — thank Heaven ! But for them the bottom, would drop out of a whole lot of our 'worst excuses. For instance, the other day a Richmond (Vic.) shopkeeper was charged for the severalth time with selling eases of apples, 30 per. cent, of which were scabby and diseased. Being his manyth conviction he could hardly excuse himself on the ground of ig norance or inadvertence, so he pleas antly assured the Bench that he ne...
THE BLACK DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
The Black Death. By K. Gal way, Grade VII. While the Hundred Tear's War was going on, a great plague called the Black Death arose in England, It broke out in the year 1341, and it dra»rsed :»tis b'ga.t r,v2n ;In some parts the living could scarse bury the dead. When the plague broke out the rich people fled to the country and the poor had to remain. Un many tarms there were very few laborers to do the reaping, sowing, and tilling that had to be done on a farm. They now demanded high wages from their masters. Their masters now got parliament to inter fere and to pass a law called the Statue of Laborers. This law said that the laborers bad to work for the same wages as they got before the plague broke out and that they were not to leave the land on which they were born. Any villein found run ning away was to be branded on the forehead with a red hot iron. The laborers refused to obey this. law. It not only failed to bring them back to the old chains of slavery but to free England of t...
A CAFE ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
A CAFE ROMANUE. By H. Carstalrs. Arthur Moyder was frequently and gratuitously ashamed of his Uncle Jo siah. He considered him an- old-fash- ioned fool. But the man who, in these days, makes a fortune on the pork markets of Chicago stands absolved from the charge of being a fool. Josiah Moy der had done it. Nor was he old, though his clothes usually _ were. Elegance had formed no part of his youth; in age he de spised it. The gloss on his coat was often dull; but hiB faculties never were. And, if his eyes were excep tionally keen, his heart was excep- ; tionally kindly. ; .When his on'y brother died he had adopted the orphan boy. For twenty . years he had given the lad a long leash, had treated him handsomely, ? . and had never worked him hard. I All the Mo.vders were good-looking, j Uncle and nephew had their full j share. It was young Arthur's sole asset. He followed the fashion. The best circles gave him welcome, he . gave ? himself airs. Eligible young ?ladies courted ? nwwa fla...

SCIENCE DOES NOT KNOW. "Riddles of the Ages" and Unsolved Problems. Things Which the Sages Cannot Explain. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
SCIENCE DOES NOT KNOW. 'Riddles of , the Ages' and Unsolved Problems. Things Which the Sages Cannot Explain. The fairy-tales of science are more wonderful than any romance woven by the imagination of men. As time goes on, each advance made is a great sensation, which seems to open up a new mystery — a never-ending story and drama that so far defies the i solution of its plot.' Great men of science the world over take nothing for granted. They allow j themselves to make a guess at the ' truth. This, if found sound, may be- j come a theory, and, when placed be- ! yond doubt, a law. Even then the ; battle goes on. At the. threshold is the problem of the origin of worlds. How was the universe with its un told number of worlds started into its ! never-ceasing movement in this in- \ finite space? Science does not know, j Our own solar system is merely a ' speck in the. universe, and our sun j but a minor atom, a mere star in space. Where does the sun get its heat from? At its present rate...
TALE OF WOE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
TALE OF WOE. I've been sewing divers patches on my Sunday pantaloons; I've been holding -burning matches trying to lo cate the prunes; I am weary now of eating cold potatoes and such grim, while my wife is at a meeting of the local women's club. I am sitting in the cellar where I fell an hour ago, and I have a broken smeller and my heart is full of woe. Oh, my soul is sore with friction, as I sit upon a tub, j ami t nail rinwn malediction on the local women's club. To old days, sur charged with beauty, my sad recollec tions- roam, when a woman thought her duty was to navigate a home; when she used to cook the mutton for h r tired and toilworn hub, and she didn't care a button for the local wo men's club. Now her sitting-room's forsaken, from her bower she's gone away ; she has quit the eggs and bacon and she . talks of schedule K. And the clothes-line now is sagging where the rugs she used to drub, and her tireless tongue is wagging at the lo cal women's club. Often I have sadly 1 p...
She Threw a Cup at Carlyle. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
She Threw a Cup at Carlyle. The marriages of intellectuals are not always unhappy, but that of Thomas Carlyle and his wife Jane was decidedly so. A friend went one afternoon to pay Mrs. Carlyle a visit, and found her lying on the sofa. 'Did you see Thomas?' she asked her visitor. 'Yes,' was the reply, 'I met him nn tha efana * what's the matter with him? He had a most woebegone ex- j pression.' 'Serves him right,' said Jane, vic iously; 'here have I been lying on this sofa for two mortal days with a frightful headache, and couldn't see, or speak, or think, and ten minutes ago he comes in, looks at me as though he had never seen me before, and says: 'What's wrong, are you sick?' I was so mad. I threw my tea cup at him!'
QUEER TASTES IN MARRIED PARTNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 July 1912
QUEER TASTES IN MARRIED PARTNERS. . Judging by the advertisements for I wives and husbands that appear from time to time in the newspapers, there are many people who have very cur ious tastes where matrimony is con cerned. For instance, not long ago the following appeared in a Bristol paper: 'Widower, living retired, with out encumbrance, would like to corre spond with lady, about forty, with small means, with one leg preferred, with a view to an early marriage.' A lonelv bachelor, who was noted for his great height, finding that he was unable to get a helpmeet tall enough for him, thought he would try what publicity would do, and insert ed this notice in a New York jour nal: 'Wanted, a wife, not necessarily young, beautiful, or wealthy, but must be at least 6ft. Tin. in lfcight.' Whether he got what he wanted or not, history does not record. A man in Connecticut recently ad- j vertised for a wife 'whose husband ; must have been electrocuted or hang- 1 ed, so that she may be prevent...

Sale Supreme Court. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tuesday July 23. (Before His Honor Mr Justice Hood.) &nbsp; Mr. S. Leon, Crown Prosecutor. YOUTHFUL DEPRAVITY. A boy named Wilfred Argus, aged 15 years, pleaded guilty to an offence against his step-sister, aged 13 years, at Stratford. The offence occurred whilst the girl's mother was sick in bed. The Crown Projecutor stated the girl had become a mother. Mr K. S. Stephen made an appeal to his Honor to deal with the lad. who was otherwise of good character under section of the Indeterminate Sentences Act. Hia Honor address- ing the boy, said he wished he could dispose of him with a few cuts of the cane. In all these cases sympathy was asked for the boy but there was no thought of the girl. He had read an article in the press recently in which reference was made to the lamentable ignorance of young boys and girls as to the folly and conse- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;...
JOE MILLER. And His Five Great Principles of Humor. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
JOE MILLER. And His Five Great Principles of Humor. There is talk of Joseph Miller. They are inquiring where he was buried. We only know that he made one hun dred and ninety-eight jokes. And the music-halls have gone on re-making them down the centuries. He discovered that the five great permanent principles of humor lay in the blunders of Irishmen, the imbecil ity of sailors, the little* failings of clerevmen. the afflictions of matri mony, and that sparkling resource — the pun. It is impossible to get away from these raw beginnings. The most pa tient experiments have ended in no thing. Poets in search of a theme for a comic song know that its incontest able basis should be domestic woe. The competitor who longs to fell the first prize next week in his favorite periodical is impelled to start the side-splitting anecdote with the words, 'An Irishman.' But one lifetime is too short to mas ter the whole five branches. If you wish to succeed it is best to: select your formula and speci...
DO YOU KNOW THE MAN YOU ARE GOING TO MARRY? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
DO you KNOW THE MAN YOU AReI GOING TO MARRY? . j By Dolly Madison. An earnest letter from a girl of unusual intelligence and thoughtful ness„ criticises me for what she calls my unfair article on 'Do Girls Want to Marry?' She states that the real reason that girls are not marrying is because men lack the moral strength and honesty which women have a right to demand, and she asks, 'Why do you not advise the girls to inquire into the morals and lives of the men before becoming engaged to them, or at least before they marry them?' Her suggestion is such a good one that it has furnished me the heading for this chat, 'Do You Know the Man You Are Going to Marry?' Do you? Do you know what his past life has been? Who are his friends? Has he always chosen good or bad company? Has his business record been fair and square? 'Why should I ask these things of my lover?' demands the engaged girl. 'Would he not tell me if there was a black page in his life's history?' No, my dear, he would not. He ...
AN UNPUBLISHED NOVEL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
AN UNPUBLISHED NOVEL. It was stated at the time of Colonel Burnaby's death , that he had left be hind him the manuscript of a novel, for which there was considerable com petition among the publishers. This is (says Sir Henry Lucy) quite true. The manuscript, a bulky parcel, was handed to me with discretionary power either to publish it myself or to use it in connection with the pro posed biography. Here a singular and, as it finally proved, a fatal obstacle presented itself. Familiar for many years .with Burnaby's handwriting, I could not, after diligent endeavor, make out more than a sentence here and there on the crowded page of manuscript. Burnaby's writing was possibly, with the exception of Dean Stanley's, the worst I ever saw. It looked as if, before sitting down to write a. letter, he had pulled a twig out of the hedge, mixed a thick black ing, and then gone ahead. . He. wrote the whole of .his 'Ride to Khiva' and his 'Ride on Horseback through Asia Minor' with his own hand. ...
VAIN DREAMS. Why Waste Time Worrying Over Them? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
VAIN DREAMS. Why Waste Time Worrying Over Them? By Walt Mason. | 'I had a horrible dream last night,' said the retired merchant. 'I went to bed early, hoping to have a good night's rest, as I had been feeling like a riot call for several days, but I got up feeling worse than ever. I fell over about a thousand precipices in my sleep and I don't know of anything worse than the sensation of falling five or six miles. I expect that some thing is wrong with my digestive ma chinery and I'll have to go and .see the doctor.' neii say its appenuicius, remanc ed the hotelkeeper, 'and then he'll lead you into his private morgue and carve you up and charge £25 and send word to the undertaker to be on the alert. You don't need medicine or a surgical operation. What you need is a safe and sane occupation that will engage your feeble faculties. The idea of a man entering a family hotel at 10 o'clock in the morning and try ing to tell the urbane proprietor about the phantasmagoria he had dreamed th...

Doing His Best. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
Doing His Best. 'Now, look here,' said the sergeant to a very raw recruit in the Loyal Boosiliers, 'to-morrow the colonel is coming to inspect you, and I hope you will answer his questions prompt ly.' 'I will do my best, sir,' said Mug gins. ''Now,' said the sergeant, 'the first thing he will say to you will be, 'How - t ? ? ? ? O) Vftn Ttrill ra. old are you, my man.: xuu win ply, 'Twenty-five.' He will then say, 'How long have you joined the ser* vice?' You will say, 'Three months,' sir.' His next question will be, 'Are your clothing and rations in every way satisfactory to you?' You will say, 'Both, sir.' ' Muggins kept repeating all this to himself for the remainder of the day, till he had it all perfect for the mor .row. The colonel arrived, and Muggins was duly called out. 'How long have you been in the ser vice, my man?' was the colonel's first question. 'Twenty-five years, sir,' promptly replied Muggins. The colonel opened his eyes very wide. 'How old are you, then, my mail?...
