I „ \ -nmv' ?«»»/ By Dargo is a small place situated on the Mitchell river. This river is very deep in some parts. All along the banks weeping willow trees and wattles grow and they look pretty in spring time vshen the wattle blossom is out. In Dargo and around the neighbor ing villiages the people mostly go in for farming. They need to have their land wire netted to keep out the rabbits because they eat the crops and vegetables, and are very numerous in Dargo. _^iTr8dMecfTBe'Vi'ilage^''near~I-ai,go the snow is very thick and deep in winter, but in Dargo it is a rare thing for snow to fall. It is very pretty to go out in the cool of the evening and see all kinds of rabbits playing games among the rocks.

THE BUGLE SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

The Bugle Song. By Maggie Jones, Grade VII. c' The Bugle Song,' a pcem, is an abridgement from the ' Princess,' and was written by Alfred Lord Tennyson a great English poet. This small poem is a lyric in which beauriful pictures are brought before the mind's eye. Tennyson was enjoying a holiday in Ireland at the Lakes of Killarney, which are a great pleasure resort. The scenery about the Lakes is very beautiful. Around tbeseUakes are many castles, old in history, -and also there are hills snrrounding the water. ! » It was about . sun down and as Tennyson was rowing across the lakes, he heard the sound of a bugle. It sounds far away on a hill and then dies away. Suddenly he hears it again on the hills the opposite side of the lakes. It dies away again, only to be heard again on the other hills and the echos keep on repeating first on one hill and then on the other, and so on, until it dies right away. The story has a moral and the poet is quite right in saying that. — ' Our echoes ro...

The Avon Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

The Avon Bridge. ? w At the Conncil meeting on Monday, tbe question of repairing the Avon bridge was thoroughly discussed, councillors being unanimous in the decision that something Bhould be done at once. After considerable discussion. Cr Carter moved ' That a groyne be put in at O'Connor's corner and that the engineer proceed with the work of strengthening the south end of the bridge, protecting the bank, etc., as recommended by MrKarmode, of the Public Works Department.' Seconded by Cr Thomson. Cr Killeen moved as an amendment, ' That another span be added to the south end of the bridge, and a cutting put through the sand bank to divert the flood waters under the center of the bridge. Seconded by Cr Long. Cr Carter thought something should be done to protect the bank on the south side of the bridge. If the piles were driven deep enough and sloped as their engineer suggested, and proper filling put in, he thought a permanent job would result. Cr Killeen : ' When thesheet piling wa...

Somebody Ought to Tell Them. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

Somebody Ought to Tell Them. The trouble with a good many wives is that they don't know that less than one woman in every thousand can manage to look bewitching in a ki- '- -- mono. '? I 'You live in an old retired neighbor . hood, don't you?' | '''Yes, indeed. Everyone of our , neighbors. has long since got over the idea that he can save money by rais ing his own chickens.'

A RIDE THROUGH ENGLAND IN TUDOR TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

A Kide Through England in Tudor Times. Bv K. Galway, Grade VII, Come with me, and we shall go for a ride through England of Tudor times. As we pass along through London, we notice that the streets are paved with wood, very rough and broken in parts, for each house-holder has to look after the pavement opposite his house. This is ^ery often neglected as some of the house-holders are very careless. Even in the main streets there is much garbage lying about, and the croaking of crows and raTens is so common ^that we cease to notice it. Most of the bouses are built of wood : they are of several storeys, and each storey juts over the one beneath it, At the cross street we catch a glimpse of the Thames. This noble river runB clear, and there are several white swans swim ming upon v It is now getting near nightfall, and we ride up to a squire's house to seek lodgings for the night. It is a new kind of a house, and the lights shine cheerfully through the windows of glass. 'As we enter we se...

THE RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

The Rain. By Julia Fleming, Grade III. The rain is very useful. If we did not have water we would die. On Tuesday it was raining, but it always rains in the mountains before it rains anywhere else. It starts to come along and hits tke mountains, and then it rises, and it finds that it is very cold there and the rain falls from it. It is not the one cloud, when one is done another comes. The cloud it comes from is called a Nimbus.

Land Tax Valuer. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

Land Tax Yaluer. At tbe J uly meeting of the Avon Shire Council the secretary and engi neer (Mr S. J, Gay) was refused per mission to accept the position of State Land Tax Valuer, only Crs. Thomson and Taylor voting in favor of permission being granted. At the Conncil meeting on Monday the engi neer made a formal application to be allowed to accept the position, point ing out that the work would rot interfere with his ordinary duties, and the experience and information gained would be of great service to him in the office. Cr Thomson was of opinion that if Mr Gay had the officc of Land Tax valuer it would be of considerable value to him in gaining information about all the properties in the shire . Moreover, in looking around, he found that the engineer had a very compe tant man in the office as assistant secretary, and if he was not allowed to accept the position asked for he might not be able to retain the ser vices of his present assistant, Mr Buckna.ll. The latter gentleman was ...

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE UGLY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE I UGLY WOMAN. By 'Mrs. Harris.' Where has she gone to — the really ugly woman? She is not to be found in any of the assemblies of women of the day, or at least she has become so rare as to be left out of count. I know that this has been borne in up on me over and over again in recent days. I wonder if the same thing has struck you, my friends? If not, then you surely must have noticed something that practically amounts to the same — the disuse of the word 'ugly' as applied to woman; 'plain-looking' or 'not good-looking' many of us may be dubbed, but when the label ugly is affixed it carries the mind in the direction of monstrosity. And yet 'ugly' continues to be ap plied to man as freely as it ever was, and it carries nothing objectionable in its train. We frankly say 'An ugly man,' and only associate with it a certain irregularity of roughness of feature. We can hear our friend, the romantic young girl, confess to a lik ing for 'ugly' men. The artist, of co...

Briagolong. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

Briagolong. ? ♦ ? (From our own correspondents). ' The Calico Social and Dance, held on Tuesday of last week, under the auspices of the local braDch of the A.N. A., proved a great success, the nett proceeds amounting to £7/3/5. Each person was asked to bring along calico, towels, etc., which would be forwarded to the Sale hospital, and the result was .very gratifying, the gifts consisting of : 62 towels, 41 pillow slips, 7 sheets, 55 yards calico, 1 doll and one complete pillow, A feature of the evening was a series of tableaux, which were arranged by Airs Wall, on whom too much praise cannot be bestowed. It would not be too much to say that half the success of the evening was due to the indefatigable way in which this lady worked to make the affair a 3uccess. The two tableaux most admired were ' The Sleeping Camp, ' and ' The Village Choir,' and all who took part in them deserve great commen dation. Mr J. W. M'Lachlan, M.L.A., has received the following letter from the Secretary fo...

HE'S GOT A GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

HE'S GOT A GARDEN. The time has come when chickens scratch the stuffing from your gardan patch and cause resentment warm. The man who owns a bunch of hens should keep them shackled in their pens or give them chloroform. For hens have caused more strife and stress and broken lives and bitterness than anything on earth; one hen can bring more grief and care and wretch edness and black despair than all known hens are worth. Our village once was sweet and calm and every sorrow had its balm, we never heard a wail; there was an atmosphere of peace, we had no use for the nnlioo. and no one was in gaol. Then some one started keeping chicks and soon we all were throwing bricks and read ing riot acts; and when at court we stood in line his honor sprung a heavy fine when he had learned the facts. Disgust is brooding on our brows, we spend our time in raising rows, with voices and with pens; we shake our fists and deal in threats, assas* sinate each other's pets — and all be cause of hens.

THE CATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

THE CATCH. I saw a maid down by the sea, And she was fishing merrily. Her eye was blue, her cheek was fair, And like the glint of sun her hair; She cast her hook with jocund air, And laughed with glee At all the fish that were to be. And I laughed, too, For well I knew No fish were in that special cove Wherein she sought her treasure trove; For maids had fished that spot before For years galore, And ne'er a fin had e'er emerged From where those waters swashed and surged. I laughed at the futility Of fishing thusly in that sea; And as my roar f Broke on the shore She turned and cast at me a glance — 'Twas now direct and now askance, And then and there That maid so fair, Who fished with such a jocund air, Made such a catch As you would find it hard to match; For, don't you see, _ The fish she caught was simple me! Moral. Don't laugh at maids down by the sea If they be fishing fishlessly, Lest it 'shall chance, by. some odd crook, That you yourself shall get the hook, ? A3 -X-xiid ther...

Is he looking for the paper to support him at the election ? No doubt Cr. Lee, bv makiner the 1 shire advertising a question to ' stand or fall by ' at the next election hopes to smother up many of his perculiar votes during the past few months, which have been caRt against the forcibly expressed wishes and interests of ratepayers in the East RidiDg.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912

To the Editor. Sir. — Permit1 me 1 through the columns of your valuable journal to raise my feeble voice against the unopposed return of one, John C, Long, to a seat at the Avon Council table ; for although the funds of the North Riding are scanty, the interests of the people are many, and we want a man who is in sympathy with re quirements, and instead of Cr Long assisting us he has been pulling the other way by helping to withhold the Council's support from the only paper that has given our country publicity, and which has, from the very commencement, consistently urged the claims of this district upon the proper authorities. Surely Cr Long's stunted mental vision has not prevented him from realizing the immense ammount of good which the paper wronght for cs by its excellent report and articles on the Minister's visit co Dargo. which Mr Edgar so warmly applauded. Why does he not stick to Crs Hurley and Scott, instead of creeping round in search of public favor down south, and bein...
