EDWARD THE BLACK PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912
Edward the Black Prince. By Alice Hardy, Grade V. England was now growing in strength because the Normans and Saxons were united together and they were getting richer because they sent away a lot of wool. Now, the French were getting jealous of them, and determined to destroy their wool bv sending out ships of pirates. At this time Kiner Edward III was reigning, and he had a strong liking for fighting in wars or tournaments. Edward now found three reasons for fighting. The first, he said that he ought to be the king of France. The second, that he was going to punish them for destroying their wool, and the last was because they had helped the Scots against him. So this is how the Hundred Tears' War started between England and France. | (To be Continued).

When he was passing through his garden he noticed that his cherry trees were covered with fresh ripe fruit. All at once a thought struck him. He knew that the enemy were all suffering from thirs't. Tbey would give anything for his fruit. He might by his cherries make an attempt to please them, and, perhaps save his city.

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912
FOOTBALL. Stratford journeyed to Heyfield yes- i terday, and were easily beaten by the local team. A large number of sup porters accompanied the Stratford boys, and a deal of interest was taken in the match. A strong wind favored the home team in the first quarter, and the vi.sitors were unable to make any defence the result being that the scores at the nrst interval were 10 points to nooning in favor of Heyfield. From this out the game was not worth describing, being devoid of anything like decent playing. Simmons, as central umpire, did his best, but it was a poor showing, and the players did pretty well as they liked, The final scores were Heyfield, 5 goals 7 behinds; Stratford, 2 goals 3 behinds. The Stratford team was supposed to be strengthened by the inclusion of Wiltshire and Robertson, but, while the former worked hard, the latter player did precious little, and his play was the subject of same rather caustic remarks by onlookers, especially some of the ladies present.

HOW WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR COMPLETED THE CONQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912
How William tue Conqueror Completed the Conquest. By Robert Stothers, Grade. V. By giving out the land to his followers (who were called Barons) and giving each of them a part of the country to rule over, and a strong ca8tle„.to live in, he made rebellion impossible. The Barons parcelled out weir jana to uKiuerieiinuia »uu instead of paying rent for the land they had to fight for the king, and if any of them (Barons or Tenants) went against him, the king could treat them as traitors. This gave the king a lot of power, and he ruled well. *

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912
Correspondence. I TO THE EDITOR. Sir. — I have read with interest all the reports of the Avon Shire Coun cil meetings for the last three years, especially the last three months, and being an old resident of Stratford I wish to offer my congratulations to the voters of the East Riding on the result of the recent election. If Cr. Kirkham's, conscience does not get in the way I believe he will be the right man in the right place, and I feel sure that our old and trusty friend, Cr. Carter, will have the support of the new man in every way which leads to progress. It is quite amusing to read the '? Reply to East Riding' in which the writer accuses the other of *' crouching dingo-like, beneath the shadow of a nom-de- plume,' to find at the end that he himself crawls into the same shadow. ^ Surely there must have been ' some hot weather about. I quite agree with the remarks of ' Rip Van Winkle' and others, and hope some of the matters mentioned in their letters will receive prompt attentio...
ACCORDING TO THE PROVERB. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912
ACCORDING TO THE PROVERB. 'Early to bed and early to rise' Was a saying he never forgot; He wished to be healthy and wealthy and wise, But, to tell you the truth, he was , not. He always was careful to look ere he leaped, And Vio nlti'nvs Hi mi flit twine ere be spoke, . But he never got much for the crops that he reaped, And few were the records he broke. He never crossed bridges before they were reached, His candle ne'er burned at both ends; He endeavored to practise the things that he preached, He was careful in choosing his friends; He remembered the rolling stone pro verb and stayed In one little spot all his life. But his heels were run down and his trousers were frayed, / And his neighbors all. pitied his wife. ? -
