HOCKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 August 1912

HOCKEY. The Stratford Ladie's Hockey team played a match against the Sale ladies on Saturday last on the local Recrea tion ground, The weather was most unpleasant being cold and showery, and the attendance of spectators was not as large as was anticipated. How ever, those who did attend witnessed a very good game. Although the visitors have had considerably more practice than the locals, the game was very closely contested. In the first quarter neither side were able to score, but in the second term the visitors scored two goals to their nil, The last half of the game was very even and the match ended with out any further scoring, the final result being : Sale, 2 goals ; Stratford, nil. To-morrow our girls play a match on the local ground against a team of Maffra ladies. Play will commence at 3 p.m., and price of admission has been fixed at 6d

GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 August 1912

The mountains are very rich in metals and minerals, It is also noted for its gun and ammunition factory at (Krupp's) it being one of the largest in the world and some hundreds of hands are employed there. , Germany is Eneland'a rival on the sea. The German people think, no doubt, that Germany should be mis tress of the sea, bnt all true Britishers think differently. They think that England should be mistress of the sea, as indeed she is at the present day, but some day her rival Germany may take her place, but we hope not. So for every pound spent on getting new war ships, England would spend £1/10/' and so this rivalry continued and, to-day both countries have spent millions of pounds in building war ships, each trying to outdo the other and neither succeeding altogether. The coast line of Germany is not very long and t...

The animal made a most piteous cry for this man to let him free. ' But,' said the fakir, ' if I let you free you will surely eat me as you are so hungry.' For a moment the tiger said nothing, theo he said; ' If there was not another bit of meat in the world, your body would remain sacred to you.' When the fakiriet him free, the brute said, ?' I am afraid that you are right. I am so hungry I must eat you.' When the fakir told him of the pro mise he had made the tiger said, ' Go and ask three things to judge whether I should eat you or not.' The fakir first &sked the road through the forest, ' The tiger is right.' said the road, 'for do not men who nse me . trample upon me ?' The next the fakir went to was a tree.

Heirlooms. 'And is this an heirloom, too?' ask ed the visitor, picking up a brick that lay on the centre table. 'Yes,' said the lady of the house. 'That is the brick my mother threw at the Prime Minister.' 'Ah, indeed, how very interesting,' said the visitor. 'And whose por trat is that on the wall?' 'That is my mother herself,' said the lady.

' By Virginia Terhune Van de Water. — — — r There are about matrimony many amusing thing's, seen only by those who have the sense of humor that will enable them to pereeive a joke on themselves, and the keen vision that will not let them look past things as they seem to be to things as they are. One feature that is universally ac knowledged to be funny is the part of /he marriage service in which the bride is heard promising to 'obey' the groom. She will not do it, of course, so why make her perjure her self? And why should she? Is not marriage a partnership? ? But that point has been discussed so much lately'that we can let it pass. Still there are other amusing phases relative to the conjugal estate. 'With all my worldly goods I thee endow!' declared a bridegroom with much unction at a wedding I attend ed. I have a fair control of my features, so I did not smile. But I knew the girl — a pretty little stenographer who had been engaged to this ...
