IMMUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912

IMMUNE. i He laughed with glee, and said, Baid he, 'I care not; no, not I. The price of beef brings me no grief, Let it go to the sky; , And butter may go all the way To three-and-six a pound, While folk may beg to get an egg, Serene I shall be found. win vaiiM miinVlv tfaa VVC1C iUiA. iiac rnc j-uu u ^uivaij pw Food prices take a fall, For trusts so bold, with goods unsold, Would soon begin to crawl. They'd make a flop and rateB would drop, Be cheap as cheap could be; The way to bust each wicked trust Is to become like me. 'I do not care for food that's rare, Care not for food that's plain; Why, its mere sight upsets me quite, To taste it gives me pain. 'What do I eat? I simply heat . Some water in a pan And melt it in a gluten grit; I've got dyspepsia, man.' .

CONCERNING BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912

CONCERNING BOY3. By George Fitch. After a baby has grown out of long* clothes and has acquired pants and freckles and so much dirt that well meaning relatives do not dare to kiss it between meals it becomes a boy. A boy is nature's answer to the claim that there is no perpetual mo tion. He is a man, minus pride, am bition, greed and about 110 pounds. When Tib ?errows nn h«*wil1 trade rn mance, energy, warts and a snag proof stomach for these other posses sions. A boy is always getting the worst of it in some trade or other. The world is so full of boys that it is impossible to touch off a band or a ball game without collecting a thousand of them. Boys are not orna mental, but they are useful. If it were not for boys the newspapers of the country would go undelivered and unread and a thousand circus ele phants would die of thirst. Boys are also useful in running errands. The zest with which a boy does an errand is only equalled by the eagerness with which an old-fashioned minister ap...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912

The subject of lighting the town of Stratford is -under discussion at the present time, and naturally the best means of supplying a light will be carefully debated by our coun cillors on Monday next. Electricity has proved to be the illuminant most suitable as an Artificial light, both for its convenience and nearness to daylight. . Hitherto the lighting of small country towns and homes has not warranted the outlay of large and expensive plant, and the constant attention of a skilled engineer, thereby depriving users of the advan tages of up to-date town houses. The Lister Automatic Electric Light ing Plant has solved the question, and permits users to enjoy all the conve niences of up-to-date town Houses in the most nngetatable parts. The plant works entirely automatically, by simply switching on the lights in your house the plant startB up working ; when you are finished with the lights you simply switch them off arid the plant automatically shuts down until again required. The on...

The Great Arraignment I. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912

The Great Arraignment I By E. Newton Bungey. I. The rector of Ketterham gripped the pulpit rail and gazed down at his con gregation. He seemed absurdly young to be a rector; although this morning he looked considerably older than his years, for he was going to address his people in a way that he knew would | not be to their liking. The congregat ion noticed his pale, serious face, and i whispered one to another, what time they made themselves as comfortable as they could for the sermon. The Reverend Maurice Wendover commenced his address in a manner which was far from suggesting what wa6 to come, and it was not until the congregation thought it was time for his peroration that he inant forward and surveyed the people for a full minute without speaking. Some shifted uneasilv under liis cravo. ntborc mot it nalmlv a n H cnmo affected to be indifferent to it and ex amined their watches in an ostenta tious manner.

SPEAKING ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 30 August 1912

SPEAKING ENGLISH. By Thomas Tapper. Speech 'is a common habit, too com mon sometimes. But common as this habit is. that involves the use of words, it is not the limit of our use of them, for be sides speaking words, we think them and write them. In the fact that our use of words in one way and another is so constant, we find a great opportunity which is based on a simple law. To state the law first: me manner m wnicn we ao our most common acts influence to a large extent the manner in which we do everything. Now, to state the opportunity. Speech is, as we have said, a com mon habit. It is, in fact, a constant habit. And if we regulate this habit so that in our use of words, whether in speech, thought, or writing, we take great care, we shall gradually learn to take great care in everything else. If you want to get on in life you cannot afford to ignore your use of English, or whatever your mother tongue is, but let us assume it is English. What are the benefits of it? 1. To begin wi...

MUNRO.   The plain and fancy dress ball, held on Friday evening last, in aid of the funds of the Perry Bridge Cricket Club, was a great success there being about 50 couples present.

STORY OF AN AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

STORY OF AN AUSTRALIAN. The following story was sent to us by a man in Beaumont, Texas, and it will appeal to many of our readers. James Francis Dwyer is evi dently a man who will be heard of again. 'From being the best known and best paid newspaper paragrapher in Australia to collecting nickels and jerking a bell-cord on a New York street-car is' a far tumble from the heights, but it was not enough to jolt me amuiuon out or James *rancis Dwyer, author of 'The White Water fall,' a forthcoming novel of South Sea Island life. Mr. Dwyer is by no means the only popular novelist who has had to do manual labor to keep from starving, but there are not many wlie have had more interesting ex periences.. Some of them he describ ed recently at a luncheon in New I York. Since childhood he has had i the wander-fever, and his insatiable thirst for fresh adventure and new scenes has in many instances led him to places where he had to take any kind of work he could get. And it seems that in spite o...

WELL-BALANCED FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 6 September 1912

WELL-BALANCED FERTILISERS. Money spent on fertilisers is not al ways laid out to the best advantage, because the ingredients bought in the fertiliser as plant foods are not in the best and therefore most economical proportions. If we buy a fertiliser containing more of one element than we need and not enough of another, then we waste our money. The three important plant foods, nitrogen, phosphorus and pot ash, must all be present in the soil if we desire any sort of good results. Should we have a superabundance of nitrogen or potash in the soil for wheat or other grains, with not enough phosphorus, we must not look for a good grain crop, because we have left out the amount of phosphorus needed to produce the grain, as this element especially influences the grain produc tion. If, on the other hand, we apply phosphorus and nitrogen without the corresponding amount of potash we have a weak spindling straw and grain of poor milking and feeding quality. Each element has its own part to p...
