Perhaps there is no other town in Gippsland of such historic importance as our little town of Stratford, named after Stratford on Avon in England, the birthplace of Shakespeare, Eng land's , greatest ..poet. The name Stratford itself seems to have a romantic accent . abon t i t . a nd. if 'tcrld anything startling about it it came as a matter of course since its name-sake Stratford-on-Avon had such a romantic history. Stratford has many fine buildings, ' spme of which are newly erected. The Mechanics' Institute may be numbered among the fine ones of the town. This bai'.ding was opened in the year ]S87, and a picnic was held in the Knob to celebrate the event. A photograph of the picnicers may be 6een in the supper rooms of the Institute.

ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

ENTERTAINMENT. The representation of a drama in five acts, entitled ' Matthew Morgan's Luck,' staged by the members of the Stratford Dramatic Club, under the personal guidance of Mr T, H, Hop kins, aroused enthusiasm, and every way deserved the big measure of appreciation lavished upon it by a large and critical audience at the Mechanics' Hall lasli evening. From the opening of Act 1 to the final fall of the curtain attention and excitement was kept in thrall by the excellent interpretation of the various parts. The piece, which in some respects resembles the famous ' Tic ket-of Leave Man,' exhibits through out a thorough knowledge of human nature, and thereby appeals strongly to the taste of a play-going public. Mr jn, jorgensen tates the lead in first rate style ; at the commence ment he appears as a country youth squandering his money in search of experiepce in New York, where he falls into the clutches of a notorious criminal known generally as *' Bill Donovon,' who has disguise...

A BOAT TRIP. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

A Boat Trip. Last boat trip I was -on the steamer ' Gippsland,' and when I got to Cunninghame we all had good fun. We thought it was nothing to go paddling. I wanted to go in for a swim but my father would not let me so I had a good paddle. I saw a shark that day, but it was only a gummy shark. Mr Martin caught it. The Mitckell river has pretty banks on it. I saw a ^number of names cut in the bank, a neart was cut in it also. I saw two, divers there. One of them was putting rocks on a sort of a basket under neath and a sort of a machine was pulling it up. The other diver was down after a ship that had sunk two weeks before.

THE WHIRLPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

THE WHIRLPOOL. By Ian Grosvenor. The room in which he sat was luxu rious to a degree. Consummate taste, coupled with a love of curios and the antique, had alike combined to make Dr. Mason's study a room of comfort to its possessor. Whence he came no one in Char hurst had the least idea. By nature Richard Mason was uncommunicative; thus it came about that, except for me iact pi nis Demg married, tne local gossips knew but little about the hand some young doctor who, hav,ing bought the practice, had taken up his resi dence in their midst. Mason had stated the fact that he was married on arrival, and beyond the circumstance that no one had ever seen the doctor's wife during his five years of residence in Charhurst, there was apparently no reason why its par ishioners should doubt the statement. in the beginning of Mason s residence interested inquiries as to the possible date of her arrival had been made. The doctor had fenced them all, with an infinite tact and patience that won for h...

THE WATTLE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

The Wattle Tree. By K. Galway, Grade VII. What is more beautiful than to see a great yellow bloom with its golden tresses waving in the snnshfne. The birds are twittering joyously amongst the green foilage of the trees. 1 This flower is the emblem of Australia. In Melbourne a day is set apart and is called 'Wattle Day,' Along the bankB of the Yarra these wattle trees are grown and when it is out in bloom is prohibited to be picked as it both spoils the beauty of the spot and spoilt* the trees. Why is not the wattle flower pro* hibited to be picked in Stratford as when people pick it they- are not con* tented with picking a little but they must go and pick boughs and when they get to the road-way pick it to pieces.

THE LADY IN GREY I. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

THE LADY IN GREY i. i Kenneth Temple lay full length upon ; the grass,- peering under a bush at tie great green door of the mansion, . pigliing as a lover ought. 'No luck to-day,' he murmured. 'Why doesn't the old fire-eater fall ill or- ? ' He broke off, for ilie great green - door opened and a lady came out. ' ''The lady in grey!' muttered the ^ ^watching man. '.Last time Ethel came out with her. They walked down to the gate together, arid I met Ethel coming back.' He smiled at the sweet recollection. At that moment two graceful, girlish figures burst out of the dark doorway, and stood beside the lady in grey, talk ing excitedly. The eyes of Kenneth .' Temple dwelt adoringly upon one who was dressed in white. For two min utes they chatted there. Then the lady in grey leant towards them as if to kiss good-bye; and tue next moment the heart of the watching man sank, for the lady in grev came down the drive alone..

Their Way of Putting It. Seven girls in West Philadelphia have organised a 'Culture Club.' They are determined to have soft voices, clever things to talk about, and a general 'polish.' 'And for gracious' sake,' said one at the first meeting, 'let's cut out the slang.' 'T sav so. too.' broke in another. 'It certainly beats the band the way the girls butt into conversation and lay slush an inch thick over the hulla baloo, and then think it's clever just because it's slang.' n 'We ought to be fined for using it, said a third. _ 'Oh, you kid!' echoed the first speaker. 'You might know that you'd have your eyes peeled for a chance to bring in the long green.' 'I think it's all tomfoolishness,' add ed another girl; 'I don't think we're 'Of course we're not,' came an in dignant chorus; 'but, don't you see, we want to give ourselves a meta phorical biff in the hack before there's any chance of our hitting the trail that leads to it.'

A BURNING COAL SEAM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 September 1912

A BURNING COAL SEAM. About the year 1812 a thin seam of coal caught fire at Greasborough, near Rotherham. It lay just below the sur face of the ground, and it was thought that the burning of a heap, or qjamp, of coal and stone in a quarry had ig nited it. The first indication that the seam was burning was the appearance of a pale blue flame on the ground, wrhich was most noticeable^ on winter evenings. ' The coal burned for something like thirtv years, and its effects were very curious. The fire was not so intense as to injure the buildings on the sur face, but it slightly warmed the soil, and the gardens in the vicinity were true hot beds, producing early pota toes, and sometimes two crops in tne year. The water obtained from the neighborhood was also distinctly warm. '

Akout Dargo. By Maggie Jones, Grade VII. Dargo is situated on the Mitchell River about 50 miles from Stratford, The road to Dargo is cut through the mountains and in one place there is a cutting 16 miles long, called the j Insolvent Track. This track is very steep and dangerous in parts and the Government has promised to regrade it so as to make it more convenient for travellers and for the horse waggons which are r,5ed for taking np the goods to the people np there, and to bring their produce away, as they have no other means of getting their produce away except by horse wag gons or eke pack-horses or mules. But the latter are not very much used now on the Track as the Dargo people just keep them for packing to Grant, or Talbotville. On the way up to Dargo there are Beveral accomodation houses. First the Stockdale hotel 15 miles from Stratford, then' Cobinai Creek where the mailman usually changes horses. A few miles father along is Bulgoback Hotel and post office, then Waterford, ...
