VERY LATEST THEOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
. VERY LATEST THEOLOGY. | At the annual Scripture examina tion in a Sunday-school the following were some of the written answers to questions: — 'Saul Avas a man who was ordered go and kill all the Roman Catherlics he could. While he was on his jour ney to find the Catherlics he was stoned. A light from heaven knocked him down.' I 'Cornelius was one of the men to stone Stephen. He could not through the stones hard enough, so he took off his coat.' 'Ruth was a hard-working Lady. When she was working in the corn fields the owner was pleased and said she could eat with the other Ladies.' 'Zacharius was a priest. He was swinging- the innocents in the tem ple.' ?
HIS BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
HiS BOY. j 'I'm awfully worried about my boy. I can't get him to take an interest in anything that I'm interested in, any more.' 'I suppose you have considered the advisability, of trying to be a chum to him?' 'Yes, that has always been my in tention. I agree with those who think that a good many of the boys who go wrong do so because they get no sympathy from their, fathers and have to look for companionship away trom home. The youngster and I used to get on together very well, but lately there seems to be a gulf between us.' . 'Are you interested in football? 'No. I think the game ought to be abolished. I used to be one of the simpletons who went to games, and I yipped and howled myself hoarse, along with the rest of them, but I've quit it.' 'How old is your boy?' 'He'll soon be 15.' 'Does he ever go to picture shows or anything like that?' 'Yes, and it worries me a good deal. He seems to think much more of such things than he ought to.' 'You never cared for anything of that kind ...

PILLARS OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
PILLARS OF FIRE. A' remarkable tragedy occurred in Dublin last year. A workman named Thomas Dunwoody was engaged in repairing the roof of a tenement, and in the course of the work had to use tar. By the direction of the landlord, his employer, he asked and obtained permission of the tenant of one of the rooms to put a bucket of tar on the fire in order to heat it. In the room at the time was the tenant. Mrs. O'Toole, and her child, and a neigh bor, Mrs. Lagrane, and her baby of four months. Not being properly attended to, the tar boiled over and flowed into the fire, and the bucket became a flaming cauldron. Dunwoody tried to quench it with water; but that only made matters worse, for the flaming tar was carried on the water along the floor. He then seized the bucket and carried it across the floor to the door; but by then his hands were so severe ly burnt that he was obliged to drop it. The door and the doorposts quickly caught the flames, and the two wo men, each picking up their ...
THE LIFE OF A STABLE-BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
THE LIFE OF A STABLE-BOY. Mostly, Btable-boys — who later be | come jockeys and still later 'muckers out' when the scale declares them to be too weighty to wear colors — do not spring from upper-ten families. Often they boast of the humblest- parentage. Hence, the stable-boy aspires to no high ideal in the matter of recreation and scholastic achievement. He gets up before daylight, and his forenoon spell — between 10 a.m. and 12 noon — is generally spent in sleeping. Per haps, if he is not too tired he reads a novel of the 'Deadwood Dick' nat tern, indulges in discussion with oth er lads on weights, performances, or racing possibilities and results. May be, he joins the others in a game of cards for wax matches. After lunch the b6ys 'do tack' on' certain days. That means cleaning saddles and saddle mountings, bri dles,. etc. Usually, 'no man is a better harness-cleaner than the one who has served his time in a racing stable; for there is always a measure of riv alry between boys in ...
JAPAN'S FEAST OF BANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
JAPAN'S FEAST OF BANNERS. The -Japanese holiday in . honor of male children, known as Noborino Sekku, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month, which in the Euro peanised calendar of Japan is new May 5. On every house that can boast of a male child is affixed a pole of bam boo, and floating tnerefrom are one or more gaudy fish made of paper. The exact number is determined by the number of boys in the household. The wind, blowing into the mouths of the fish, inflates them and makes them writhe and wriggle with a curiously lifelike motion. The fish are supposed to be carp, the carp in Japan being recognised as the symbol of health and long life. Other staffs support paper pennons of every color, while banners blazoned with heraldic devices float iu the wind. Boys of all ages appear in the streets in gala attire, some having lit tle sabres in their belts, some bear ing on their shoulders huge swords of wood, gaily' painted and decora ted, and others -carrying miniature banners...
Heady Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
Heady Legislation. The Chinese prototype of the Amer ican Anti-Trust Law is beautifully brief and simple.- It contains but four paragraphs, which are as follow: — 'Those who deal with merchants un fairly are to be beheaded.' 'Those who interrupt commerce are to be beheaded.' 'Those who attempt to close the markts are to be beheaded.' 'Those who maintain the prosperity .of commerce are to be rewarded.'
His Father's Voice. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
His Father's Voice. ? The gardener, who was busy trim- _ ming up his flower-beds, was inter- ' rupted by his master's little fiveyear old son, who was following his father | down the garden. Looking up, the gardener said: | 'Well, Johnny, what were you cry ing for just now?' 'I was not crying,' observed the lit- ' tie one. I 'Then it was, something remarkably ? like it,' continued the gardener. 'I know.' said the little chap, with . a bright look in his eyes. 'It was j pa singing.' Naturally enough 'pa' is more care- 1 ful where he exercises his voice i now.
STORIES OF PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
STORIES OF PLACES. ! At the corner of the Via Stabin and the Vicolo di Mercurio in Pompeii is 'The House of the Laocoon,' which was a complete miller's and baker's es tablishment, containing grinding mills j made of Vesuvian lava stone and a large oven for baking. It was from this oven that the loaves of bread now j shown in the Naples museum were taken. By the side of the oven is a lead boiler in an excellent state of preservation, xiie uuuer was neaxeu i with charcoal, the hot water being | drawn off by means of a bronze tap. j i This points to the fact that the dough : was kneaded with warm water. Char- | coal was generally used for heating and cooking purposes, though lately some excavations in Belgium prove that the use of coal was known to the Romans. The rooms were heated by means of a brazier, exactly the same as the 'braciere' used by the Italians to-day. 'Washing-day, or rather washing week, is so important a period in the Balkan region that all family and so cial obligati...
Excellent Reasons. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
Excellent Reasons. ! The grubby-looking man stood in. the doorway, with determination on i every line of his unshaven counten ance. The housewife who faced him was equally determined. 'Yes, madam,' said the shabby man; 'the guv'nor ses to me: 'Go and git Mr. Jones' dress-suit to be clean ed and pressed. The lady'll give it to yer.' The guv'nor's a tailor, you see, mum.' 'Oh!' replied the lady. 'And did you see Mr. Jones?' 'I did, mum,' came the answer, 'wiv me own eyes. He ses: 'The lady'll know. I lef! a message at , 'ome.' ' Plainly, Mrs., Jones was perplexed. The trickster felt lie had nearly achieved his object. The lady's reply finally crushed him, 'however. I 'Well,' she answered, 'all I can say is that Mr. Jones never had a dress-suit, and for the last five years he's been in Canada!' j Then the grubby man bolted.
TIGHT NECK-BANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 August 1912
TIGHT NECK-BANDS. In all first-aid instruction the first thing one is told to do in cases of fainting or convulsions is to loosen the clothing; but it seems not to have occurred to anyone to suggest that some of these cases might havi been prevented had the clothing never been tight. Reference is not here made to the corset particularly, for tight-lacing has been so often de nounced that its evils are well known. The present criticism is directed against tight neckwear. In this regard -men are as often at fault as women — in summer indeed niore often. Actual compression of the windpipe is not the only way in which death by strangulation may be caused. The immediate cause may be congestion of the brain and per haps apoplexy, the result of cutting off the return circulation of the blood in the veins of the neck. But a man need not die in order to experience the evil effects of tight collars; the bad effects come much sooner and much more readily than death. Many persons suffer from mo...
