These two dukes took opposite sides in warr The elder brother owned a castle sorroanded by a village, and in his absence his younger brother came with his knights and soldiers to take this castle. The fighting for the castle was a long and troublesome one, for the men of the village made a faithful attempt to save it. But at last their food ran out, and many of them died from hunger and. thirst. After much fighting these men sent a message to their foe begging for msrcy. But the young duke was so angiry, for they had held out so long, that he said he would spare none but the women, and children, all the men should be put to death and their goods destroyed, The woman came up to the young duke and went on their, knees before him, and begged that their husbands might be saved.

The secretary of the Trustees of the recreation reserve (Mr Jas. T. Mitchell) wrote to the Mechanic's Institute committee informing them that the local Dramatic Society were rehearsing a piece which they intended to play for the benefit of the reserve. He also intimated that the Dramatic Society would like to stage their piece on race night (Sept- 19) it the .Mechanic s committee could see their way clear to forego their right to the hall for that date. Although the committee had arranged to run an entertainment in aid of their building fund they relinquished their claim to the hall in favor of the recreation reserve trustees. The matter of lighting the town came on for discussion at the Council meeting on Monday, and several ten ders were received for the installation of acetylene gas. It was considered, however, that the prices submitted were altogether too higb, and none were accepted.

THE LAST EGG OF THE GREAT AUK. Sold for £331. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912
THE LAST EGG OF THE GREAT AUK. Sold for £331. An Irish egg was sold in London re cently forn£331. It was. as may be judged from the price offered, a re markable egg. It was 68 years old. Eggs' are usually not valued for their antiquity; but- this one had another distinction. It was the last egg laid by the last of her race. It was laid in Dublin in 1844 by a Great Auk, and it is believed that with . her death the Great Auk became extinct. Seventv one eggs of great auks remain in dif ferent collections, but the Dublin egg which fetched £331 is the latest laid and holds the record for price. Its superior value is not due to its com parative freshness, but to the fact it is the last great auk's egg laid 011 this earth. It is believed, however, that it will not keep the record. As the owners of the collections in which great auk's eggs are fount}, die, or find it necessary to realise the value of their treasures, these eggs will be more and more sought for by mu seums, and collectors ar...

"THIS, TOO, SHALL. PASS AWAY." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912
'THIS, TOO, 8H ALL PASS AWAY.'' By Ella Wheeler Wilcox. A mighty monarch in the days of old Made offer of high honor, wealth and gold To one who should produce in form concise A motto for his guidance, terse and wise — A precept, soothing in his hours for lorn, Yet one that in his prosperous days „ should warn. Many the maxims sent the king, men say, The one he chose; 'This, too, shall. pass away. Oh, jewel sentence from the mine of truth! What riches it contains for age and youth. No stately epic, measured and su blime, So. comforts, or so counsels, for all time As these few words. Go write them on your heart, And make them of your daily life a part. Has some great sorrow fallen to your lot? This, too, will pass away — absorb the thought, And wait; your waiting will not he in vain, ?

OLDEST ACTOR IN EUROPE. Playing at Eighty-Four. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912
OLDEST ACTOR IN EUROPE. Playing at Eighty-Four. Herr Bernhard Baumeister has just celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of his joining the Imperial Court Thea tre of Vienna. This is believed to be a record for any player, and as Bau meister is now 84 years oldj and still plays regularly on the same stage, he is believed to hold the double distinc tion of being the oldest actor in Eu rone. and the one who has played longest at one and the same theatre. He appeared in the evening as Fal staff. in 'Henry IV.,' one of his most famous roles, and received a tremen dous ovation, in return for which he delivered a short speech of thanks. The Emperor, who is two years Bau melster's junior, sent him a special message of congratulation, and pro mised a pension for life to ,his wife, a comparatively young woman, whom the aged actor married only two years ago. _____ When we read the lives of distin gished men in any department we find them nearly always celebrated for the -anojasd Pinoo ieq? joqui...
Her Reward. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912
Her Reward. The cook had left, and no other tould be obtained, so the lady of the house did the cooking herself, with such satisfactory results that, after a month, her husband gave her a beau tiful set of sables as a token of his appreciation of the good dinners he had enjoyed. ? Of course the neighbors soon heard of this, and when the cook left in an other equally well-known family the lady of the house said to her hus- 1 band: | 'Well, the cook has gone and I'm not going to bother to get another. I'm going to do the cooking myself, deary. You heard what Mr. Soand So gave his wife when she did. the cooking?' And putting her arms round his neck, she cooed: 'What shall I get for my cooking?' 'Woman,' said her husband, push ing her away, 'you will get a long black veil!' 'Just fancy! There's a fasting man who has been living for 45 days on | water.' 'That's nothing. My father lived for 20 years on water.' 'Go on!' 'Yes; he was a sea captain.' ..,???* J ' ?' - ?? j:- ??? ? V J u.^;. '...
CARNEGIE AT 76. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 August 1912
CARNEGIE AT 76. Andrew Carnegie on his 76th birth day was feeling very fine with the sun shining and the cablegrams and tele grams of congratulation pouring in at his home, 1903 Fifth-avenue, New York. Mr. Carnegie talked about greatness and wealth and how to get both. He gavfc the list of twenty great men who, he said, had made the world what it ?was. These are the twenty: — 'Shake speare, Edison, Arkwright, Morton, Siemens, Franklin, Jenner, Bessemer, Murdock, Neilson, Mushet, Hargreaves, Lincoln, Columbus, Stephenson, tsurns, Watt, Symington, Gutenburg and Bell. 'But not one of these men,' a re porter interposed; 'made much money.' Mi. Carnegie threw up his hands. 'Money!' he exclaimed. 'Anybody can make money. These men have done something for the world. 'Money is a bother. The great trouble about this world, I find, is not how to get money, but how to get rid of it wisely.' , A reporter inquired as to his method of getting money in this easy fashion, and Mr. Carnegie dictated t...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
To the Eiutok. Sir, — It was with great interest that I read the letters re election matters in your last issue. I quite agree with your correspondent that ' CrlKilleen is a j good councillor for his own little corner but must say he exceeds his duty w;lien ; he treats ratepayers in other- corners as worse than idiots, which is evidenced by his remarks when the extension of the Shire Common came before the meeting. 'When the petition was pre sented he said; 'some people would sign anything, if it were to hang a man,' Of course his sympathies were ^vith Cr Lee, , who might thereby lose some very convenient corners. Cr Lee ?will, no deubt, give a platform address before the election. (Mr Kirkham doubtless is waiting for him to lead the way) when the electors will have a chance to Jget an explanation of his, at'' present, obscure views on the general progress of the district. I trust that if Mr Kirkham is returned he will give his help and support to Cr Carter, who at present has to ''...
Prickly Points. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
Prickly Points. To THE EdITOK. : Sir, — There is a saying ?' You can \ fool all the people some of the time ; some of the people all theT time ; bat you can't fool all tbe people all the . time.' The electors of the East Rid ing have a chance to bring this under tbe notice of the Councillors who comprise the caucus that governs the - shire. A caucus with Cr Killeen as the autocratic leader, Councillor Tay ? lor, vice-leader, and Crs. Lee and Loufi as amble (without the h) fol lowers. a caucus governed irom Sale, by Sale, for the benefit of Sale, ♦o 'he disadvantage of Stratford , finai cially and socially. The Czar like ruler gives his command,' his army shuffle into line and march boldly onwards, onfe of them to his Sedan, out of step and like Brown's cows coming home,. but trying to keep up their courage by singing that well known battle hymn ' We'll hang the Progress on a Sale apple tree, and then we'll go marching on.'

The Conscience of Cr. Lee. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
'The Conscience of Cr. Lee. Tn the 'EnrriTR. I Sir.. — In Cr. Lee's notice of candi dature for the East Riding, he says, *? I will do my best to carry out your wishes as far as I can conscientiously do so.' I 'would like to bring home iVin 'Klfifitora wlinsn votes Vie annlra the enormity of the insult conveyed in those few words. Does Cr. Lee mean that whenever the ratepayers desire one course of action, that he ?will find bis conscience compelling iim to take the contrary course in the future, as it has done in the past ? Was it Cr Lee's conscience that im pelled him to foster the Press in terests of Sale in preference to those of Stratford ? Did his conscience tome into play over the extension of the Common in his own direction ? - Are Cr. Lee's belated donations to public bodies con&cience money P I motice that in the advertisement in tbe Sale ' Times,' Cr Lee makes no mention of bis conscience, from which I infer that he will find himself con ; science free to vote for t...
Correspondence. Reply to " East Riding." TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
Correspondence. .Reply to ' East Riding.' TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — Any right-minded ratepayer -will gaze more in pity than in anger on the journalistic pantalooning of ''East Riding' and the other two irresponsibles who contributed their scurrilons screeds— anent tbe forth coming election — to the open columns , .of your laot issue. It is difficult for one to imagine the brand of evil spiz it that moves these simple rustic minas to perpetrate — ana rush into jn'int with — such villainous tirades of abuse on the eve of a candidate's election, and, although such epistles should pass unnoticed, I beg a brief space in your valuable paper to ad minister a few words of rebuke to /' East Biding ' before dismissing him ?tvith the contempt which, I consider, is bis just desert. Keen — and some times hostile — criticism is the un enviable lot oi every public-spirited man who holds or seeks to attain positions of any dignity or import ance, especially honorary ones, where both his valuable time a...
