Gippsland Development [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

Gippsland Development Gippsland, that long-neglected terri ? tory which was in olden days a very terra incognita to the rest of Victoria but which asserted its claims to recog nition in the early 'fifties by virtue ol its superior soil arid climate, is, despite many drawbacks, still taking pride of place amongst the provinces of Vic toria. Statements that the climate has altogether changed have been dis proved; the pastures are as good and the cattle sent to market from the . larger holdings as fat and prime as ever, and even the present season, looked on with doubt by some, has been redeemed from all gloomy anti , cipations by the bountiful rains of July. Still the old times are slowly passing away, and a new era of progressive farming is dawning. It was considered at one time that the growing of cereals and especially of wheat was only a waste of time, though it may be re membered by some that excellent wheat was shipped from Clydebank by the steamer Murray many years since, but a...

Causes' op the Armada'., By Sydney Burnett Grade VI . .In 1493 there was a. war called the. Armada,' The first start of the Armada was that the Spanish, had made a discovery in America and were very ' rich, livery day ship' after ship full of gold and silver would come into the port of Cadiz in Spain; This . made' the English jealous, and made them plunder the Spanish ships and take the gold and silver.

THE SONG OF THE ORANGE PEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

THE SONG OF THE ORANGE PEEL. I ? I Like a bar of the beaten gold 1 gleam in the summer sun; I am little, I know, but I think I can throw A man that will weigh a ton. I send out no challenges bold, I blow me no vaunting horn, But foolish is he who treadeth on me, He 11 wish he had never been born. Like the flower of the field, vain man Goetli forth at the break of day; But when he doth feel my grip on his heel, Like the stubble lie fadetli away. For I lift him Tiigh up in the air, With his heels where his head ought to be; With a down-coming crash he falls like a flash, And I know he's clean gone upon me. I am much scorned by haunty lnan mankind; I am much scorned by haughty man kind;. Though my talents are few, yet the work that I do Has often taxed medical skill. I'm a blood-red Republican born, And a Nihilist fearless I be; Though the head wear a c.rown, I would bring its pride down If it set its proud heel upon me.

HOW WE RUIN OUR SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

HOW WE RUIN OUR SIGHT. There is ? one point in connection with the care of the eyes which many young men ignore, and that is the harm caused by smoking while writ ing at a desk. It is not easy to smoke a cigarette in such circumstances .without- - getting the- smoke int'ov. the eyes, which causes blinking and water ing, and thus throws a strain upon tne eyes wmch may be tne lorerunner of serious defects. It is far better in such circumstances to smoke a pipe, or, if one must smoke a cigar ette, to do so with the aid of a long cigarette-tube. Other offences which we commit every day in regard to the eyes are pointed out in a timely article pub lished in the 'Family Doctor.' The most common is reading with a 'poor light. This requires the ciliary mus cle to do extra work to sharpen sight. It applies to dim lights, twilight, and sitting too far from the light. The second offence is one of posture. Stooping or lying down congests the eye, beside requiring unnatural work for the eye musc...

One of His Disciples. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

One of His Disciples. When Sir A. Conan Doyle, the crea tor of Sherlock Holmes, was in the United States recently he was sur prised to find himself recognised by a cabman whom he was quite certain he had never seen before. The man thus explained the apparent mystery: i Knew you as a memoer oi ine Cabmen's Literary Guild, to which your itinerary has been telegraphed in advance, and I recognised you as the man because your coat lapels have evidently been grasped by New York reporters. Your hair, sir, has mani festly been cut by a Philadelphia bar ber, -your hat seemingly saved with difficulty from the pirates by whom you were surrounded at luncheon in Chicago, while your overshoes bear traces of Buffalo mud.' Sir A. Conan Doyle's reply is hot reported. Breed for stamina; breed for health. Introduce new blood only from hardy stock. 'Your villain is certainly a wonder ful creation! How did you manage to think of so many varieties of wick edness?' a theatrical manager asked a playwright,...

PREPARING HIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 13 September 1912

PREPARING HIDES. After Haying hides that are to be sent to market for -sale, 'it is impor tant to let all the animal heat escape before salting. The hides should be spread out flesh side 'up; and allowed to cool, but they should not be sun dried, unles thej' are to be sold as such, and drying and cooling in the ?shade is advised. ' .. Trimming should be done before salting, because' glue-pieces that have been salted and cured on the hide and trimmed, afterwards will only sell a«- offal, at much lower figures. If pro perly cooled- ana dried, the (ails, ears, and other pieces are marketable at good values.

District Notes. ? ; ? ? j SOUTH BUCHAN, I After a fortnight of terrible winter weather, we have just bad a change, with 67 points of rain. This is most welcome, as the ycung grass had wilted badly. The sale of the Buchan Station took place on the 12 th inst., but was hardly a success, only about a qaarter being sold, although £34 per acre was given for one block. Other prices were £22/10/. £-19/10/, £14 10/, £8/10/ and £5/5/. There is no sign of the tram way yet, but those interested say that it soon will start.
