Correspondence. Old Ratepayer's Views. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

Correspondence. A ? ! Old Ratepayer's Views. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — I do not take much interest in shire matter, but as I supported Cr Lee when be first stood for tbe Council, and thought he would make a good man, I have taken more notice of the Council doings since he was elected than before, and I am sorry to say he has not acted in the way I , and others thought best on many im portant matters. A Common has been established and it extends in our direction over ' 20 miles, to Tom's creek, and yet the roads near the Lee's properties are excluded, al though only four or five miles from Stratford. The roads in our district badly need forming and gravelling, but . no money is available, yet Cr Lee is favoring a proposal to put a bridge over the river at Clydebank, to cost between £3000 and £4000, which would take all the rates and leave nothing for road work. A bridge would 6uit me very well but I am sure the Conncil is not justified in going to such an . expense, I am sorry to vote ag...

HOW TO HANDLE A GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

'How to Handle a Gun. By Charlie Swan, Grade VII. A boy who is out with a gun does not realile that he is carrying death in his hand. The boys or whoever is out shooting must not point the gun in line with his mate,- for it might go - off. He might have unloaded it and left it down on the ground, and, some one might have come up and loaded it. It is always a safe rule to say a gun is always loaded, and then you will not be so. anxious to point it at everyone. There are five ways in which you want to be careful when you are carrying a gun. One way is when you are getting over a fence you -want to take out the cartridge and when you are over you can put it in again and then you will always be safe. Another way is to carry the gun with the barrel down or up, so you will not shoot anybody. Another thing yon want to remember is, when yon are loading a' gun you do not want to raise tbe barrel, bat yon want to raise the stock — that is tbe arm of the gun, and besides tbese three, there are...

A REMEDY WHICH REPAIRS THE ;;,; After a severe attack of typlioid or tropical fever the constitution takes a long time to recover from the blow dealt by the disease.

GOLDEN THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

GOLDEN THOUGHT8. 'Don't make your guest the confl- \ dante of all your servant worries. Their recital may relieve you, but they will weary her, so that she will probably not wish to run the risk of a repetition of the strain. If you made mistakes yesterday, forget them. No strength was ever built upon continued regret. To-day is thp result of vesterdav. but it is more important to remember that to morrow is the result of to-day. ? The work of women whatever it may be has always a personal object in view, and it would be hard to make them believe it natural that men should fight shoulder to shoulder with out knowing or liking one another. A woman who never worries de clares that there is nothing more de timental to beauty in -woman than worry. The worrying woman does no body any good. She simply invites the hand of Time which writes plenty of wrinkles on her brow, around her eyes and mouth, paints her face yel low, and gives a lack-lustre eye that no artifice can brighten.

One day, unto a bargain sale, on mil linery bent (a beehive-coal-vase hat she craved), the cash and Mary went. Two hats, three blouses, and a skirt, some lace, a satin tie, and good ness knows what else beside, whilst there, caught Mary's eye. Of Mary's little treasury the bill made quite a hash; the past tense thus ' is justified regarding Mary's cash.

A Ticklish Customer. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

A Ticklish Customer. It was the Cockney's first visit to | the Emerald Isle, and when he emerged from a railway station in dear old Dublin he was assailed by a horde of jarveys with jaunting-cars, who waved their whips at him and loudly demanded his patronage. The first driver to attract his atten tion was little better than a scarecrow in rags and tatters, and the Cockney passed him by and moved on to a more respectably-dressed coachman. ♦Having engaged the man, he could not refrain from inquiring why the other was so poor and unkempt. 'Och, no, yer honor,,' came the smiling retort, 'shure it's not poor he is at all.' 'Then why on earth doesn't he dress better?' asked the visitor. 'Faith, yer honor,' was the reply, 'there's not a tailor in all Dublin that can measure him— he's so tick lish!' .

'Fine; but has he a sense of hu 'Yes, he has that,' replied the friend'. 'I fancy he has a very pretty wit of his own. In fact, I've heard ,liim get off one or two rather neat things which were quite funny.' 'I'm sorry to hear that. He won't do, that's plain.' /'For HeaVen's sake! why, not?' asked the surprised friend., 'I'll tell you — just in confidence. I had one secretary once with a sense of humor, andr it was so strong that between us we could not do any work because of his laughing at the things I dictated.

WHYS WITHOUT ANSWERS. Familiar Questions that' Puzzle Big Minds. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

WHYS WITHOUT ANSWERS. Familiar Questions that ' Puzzle Big Minds. j Dr. Donaldson Smith, who crossed Central Africa some time ago, disco vered that the whole of the centre of that continent is gradually drying up. Lake Stefanie, he says', is much lower than it used to be, and the African rainfall is decreasing from year to year. Why, neither he nor any other scientist can really explain. Why does it rain? is a question that few can answer. There might be just as much rain overhead when the sky nloar nc whon Vianvtr nlmirln + /\llf uo »» ucat j uiuuuo auui uu.-« the sunshine. When rain falls from a cloudless sky it is generally believed that the moisture has been brought by the wind at a great elevation. Sir J. C. Ross has stated that in the South Atlantic it rained on one occa sion for upwards of an hour, while the sky was altogether free from clouds. 'The night was clear,' he says, 'the stars were shining with their accus tomed brilliancy, when a shower of rain, consisting of . luk...

FOR THE HEALTH. Redness of the Nose. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912

FOR THE HEALTH. Redness of the Nose. Redness of the nose is a disfigure ment which may occur from one of several causes, each differing widely. Primarily, it is often due to temporary disorders of the circulation; secondly, to permanent disorders of the circula tion or changes in the blood capilla ries; and thirdly, is due to cutaneous changes or disorders of the skin. The most general is the first case, and may be attributed very frequently to indigestion, whicn is temporarily increased by tight-lacing or by drink ing hot fluids. Naturally the remedy for this most distressing disorder is to pay great attention to the diges tion, and to wear tolerably loose-fit ting garments. ?-* The second cause is generally chron ic- obstruction of the circulation, eith er caused by a disordered liver or an excess of alcohol, which produces a distension and enlargement of the ca pillaries under the skin of the nose, and, should this be firmly established it is very difficult to effect a cure. The ...
