Ak Imaginary Trip from I^ver cargill to Auckland, by the East Coast. By O.M.S., Grade VIIL (continued.) I As we steered along the pier we could see that it would be an impossi bility fort us to land unless the crowd dispersed. While we were talking this over, our captain appeared and said that if we intended to go on shore he wonld accompany us and see that we got through the crowd with our luggage. We thanked him and accordingly arranged our belong ings to be carried on. shore. While walking through the crowd,- 1 noticed some of my friends struggling to reach me. I told the captain and we. waited for them. After greetings were exchanged, I' ordered my lug gage to be cariied to my friend's house and after thanking the captain most heartily for his generous assist ance, we parted.

SHOULD WIVES SHARE THEIR HUSBANDS' CONFIDENCES? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
SHOULD WIVES SHARE THEIR HUSBANDS' CONFIDENCES? It is not an unusual state of things for a wife to hear her husband's af fairs freely discussed by others, where as she — the supposed confidante of his bosom — is totally ignorant of his mode of life and actions. The question now is — who is at fault? If the wife takes no interest in her husband's life he naturally ceases to confide in her or to make her a partner of his joys and sorrows. The greatest link to bind husband and wife together is sympathy, and where there is no sympathy they drift apart, each going their different road with only the memory of the words of their marriage contract to remind them that 'Thy ways shall fie my ways.' Wives should endeavor to interest themselves in their husbands' hobbies. When the man finds he has a sympa thetic listener he expands and con fides all his ambitions and expectan cies. But where he is met with a sniff of contempt he naturally dries up to his wife and unburdens his soul by making a ...
LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up to the Girl Who Can't Talk Small Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up to the Girl Who Can't Talk Small Talk. Mercy! Isn't it awful? What a crime! What a serious social inabil ity ! And 'what a perfectly unconquer able fault! That is the idea I should get from the wail that threads its way through letter after letter which comes to me. Girls pathetically stating that they are hopeless socially, that they .cannot make friends among either girls or men — simply because they cannot talk small talk. It seems a very little thing to shut aiiy wen-inientioned girl from the so cial opportunities she has a right to enjoy — and would enjoy if she could win them by small talk. But she can not. Her tongue cleaves to the roof of her mouth. Her curls upon her fore head get sticky with the dews and damps of nervous perspiration! She suffers about all of the tortures of the damned with a few variations in the - shape of miseries that are pecul iar to ballrooms and other festal scenes which will probably not be a part of the pro...
Why Mrs Burton Regards Her Husband as a Hero. THE STORY OF A FRUSTRATED BURGLARY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
Why Mrs Burton Regards j Her Husband as a Hero. I THE STORY OF A FRUSTRATED BURGLARY. Harry Burton sprang up the steps, and was about to ring the bell, when he suddenly checked himself. There was an air about the house that struck him as peculiar. The blinds in the front were pulled down, and there was not a ray of light to be seen in any j of the. windows. ? ] The front door was slightly open, however, and after a few moments' hesitation he stenneri intn tho vocH. bule without ringing the bell. Here he was amazed to find the second door wide open, but the hall and stairway beyond were in total darkness. He was satisfied now that something was decidedly wrong. He had come down from Crampton expecting to find the family at home, and to spend a pleasant evening with Ella Frinton, his affianced, who was staying for two weeks with her aunt, Mrs. Mark-well. The latter was a wealthy widow with one daughter. They resided in the handsome villa, in the vestibule of which Robert was now stand...

Children's Corner. How the War Taxes Stirred the Laborers to Revolt. - By l|^0^iet/ones, Grade VII. In lS^^jyll-tax was levied on every male and female in England, Now, this tax was unfair as the poor people suffered much more from it than the richer classes . did ; as no allowance was .made to anybody and ^^0091: ^eople^as well aj9-richir:iwopte: had to- pay' exScfiiy tlSe f same a moniit -jf money. This poll-tax led an indignant people to revolt. The fiercest revolt was in Kent, which was then a great manufacturing town. . A tax-gatherer had insulted the daughter of a tiler, and the father had struck the nian down with his eathing staff. This was the signal for the revolt. In a short time 100,000 men were gathered round Wat Tyl'er, an old spldier who had served in France. They then marched to London to see the King. On the way they de stroyed numbers of houses belonging to rich land-owners and also they destroyed all the rolls which had the villeins' names written on them that the...

THE SCHOOL ELOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
The Schooij Elower Garden. By Carrie Hopkins, Grade VI. The young seedlings, cuttings, bulbs and shrubs which we received on Arbor Day are coming on splen didly after the nice rain we had last week, There are a good number of pansies, which we received from the . Horti cultural Society, in flower, and a number in bud. The sweet peas which we received from Mr Nedwell are coming on well. We have nearly finished digging up the rest of the garden which was not dug before the fence wa3 put up. There is to be a fence put up round the flower garden to keep out the geese, fowls, and ducks, for they eat down our young plants. We have succeeded in killing most of the couch grass which was such a bother in the garden.

NEGLECTED GIPPS LAND, ? —♦ ? — INTERESTING ADDRESS BY CR. N. T. PITCAIRN. (Reprinted from ' Toora and Welsh pool Ensign, ' 5th July, 1912.) There was a good attendance at th® Toora Mechanics' Institute on Mo'-, day evening last to hear an address on the above subject, under the ans piceR of the local brauch of the A.N,A. by Mr N. T. Pitcairn. Mr Jas. A- , Dyamond, president of the branch, occupied the chair, who after a few introductory remarks, introduced Mr Pitcairn, who said he had ta thank the A.N.A. for the invitation to speak on '? Negeglected Gippsland.' The subject was one which had beer* before the public for some time, and he was anxious to know what was going to be done. We should ask our selves are we not a neglected Gipps land. There were certain circum stances which bad to be taken into consideration. The area of Victoria was 80,744 square miles, and the area, of Gippsland 19,.000 square miles, or practically one-fifth of the whole are* of Victoria. They were many in t...
Sport in General. FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
Sport in General. FOOTBALL. Stratford and Newry teams met on J the local ground yesterday, and a good game resulted. The locals are the lighter team, and it was con sidered that want of form would prove their undoing, but in this re- | spect the unexpected happened, and in the laBt quarter the visitors were run to a standstill. H. Curran cap tained the home team, while Newry was led by P. Bolan. The first quar ter the visitors were kicking down the hill, but they did not make use of thei opportunities they had, and only manager to raise the two flags once, Sutherland being the player responsible- Stratford were making the game very even and scored a goal through the agency of George Adams, the scores at the first interval being — Stratford, 1 — 3 ; Newry. 1 — 3. The second quarter the locals .had the best of the play, but, like their op ponents, they made poor use of the opportunities presented, and only put on a couple of points, while Newy added four behinds to their score, the vi...
Correspondence. SHIRE ADVERTISING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
Correspondence. ? ♦- ? SHIRE ADVERTISING. TO THE EDITOR. Sis, — In your last issue a correspon dent signing himself 'Ratepayer,' referred to the shire advertising, and expressed a wish that I should state my views on the question, I am decidedly in favor of the local paper being ap pointed the official organ, as I consider the 'Sentinel' has an undoubted right to the' position. — Yours, etc., GEORGE KIRKHAM. (At the last meeting of the' Avon Shire Council, when the question of shire advertising was under discussion, Cr. Lee stated that as he had voted against the local paper on. a former occasion he did not feel inclined to favor it at the present time, in view of the fact that the municipal elections were pending, and his action might be taken as an attempt to gain support at the ballot box. However, if he was sitting at the Council table when the matter was again brought forward he would be in favor of the local paper receiving a fair share of the advertising. We inadvertently omi...

District Notes. SOUTH BUCHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 August 1912
District Notes. ? ? ? — ? SOUTH BUCHAN, (From our own correspondent). Since my last report -we have had 2.18 inches of rain up to 24th ult., since when we have had lovely weather. If this continues for a couple of weeks we will have fair feied. Upwards of three tons of rabbit skins have left this district this season, and there is a few more week's trapping to be had yet. The price has been good, up to 1 / 3 per lb. being obtained locally. A steady decline in price will now take place, as the percentage of milky does and kittens will increase. Already kittens are in evidence, which fact points to a heavy breeding season. It is rumored that the long talked-of tramway is to be started at once ; if so the future of the district is safe. The concert and ball in aid of the nursing scheme returned a profit of over £8. The work of opening up the caves is being pushed on, and there will be a much larger area open to the public when the work is completed. Store cattle are selling well, and o...

Burke and Wills. By Winnie Hall, Grade III. Burke and Wills were two very brave men, the bravest that ever lived. They wanted to cross Aus tralia, so they' chose two men to go with them, King ^and Gray. They went on and on till they had done what they set out to do. But the hard part of it was still in front of them. They wanted to come back now, so they turned their faces to the south, and started to go back to where they had started from. Then Gray gave way to weariness, then Burke, then Wills, but King did not die so soon. Then he went to see if he could see the sheep station, but he did not find it. After that he was found by a tribe of ?riendly na tives.
