TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

To u'ilk Editou. Sir. — Who is responsible for the vandalism being penetrated at the Knob ? A month or two ago the place was a thing of beauty, now its only attraction is its hideous ugliness, ' Woodman spare that tree,' might well be sung to the despoilers who are leaving the ' Knob,' bestrewn with the dead and gaunt-looking trunks of our beautiful wattles, of which we are so proud. Had the ti-tree or brambles been destroyed we could have rejoiced and applauded the trustees, now we must ask ' Why is this kind of thing allowed to take place ?' Who is blundering, or who is benefitting P Yours, etc. Barrariak. ' Jack' Johnson, the world's cham pion heavy weight boxer, announces that he is ready to sign articles for a bout with Sam Langford in the Sydney stadium on 26th December next. He is expected to leave for Australia shortly. It is understood that Johnson ac cepts the offer of -£10,000 made to him by Mr Hugh D. M'Intosb, of Sydney, to fight both Langford and Sam M'Vea.

Correspondence. A CASE OF VANDALISM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

Correspondence. A CASE OF VANDALISM. TO TOE F.DIT02. Sib, — -I crave space in the columns of your journal to bring under the notice of the general public the general destruction that has been ' wrought during the last few weeks in the enclosure known as ' The Knob.' This ground is undoubtedly the fineBt natural park in this part of the State, and is one of which the residents might well feel proud, and one of its greatest claims to beauty is .the piuiuieoi[uo duuu auu iuui abound, especially in the vicinity of the drive. Up till a few weeks ago there ware scores of beauiiful wattle trees dotted here and there through the park, and when in bloom they presented a most magnificent sight. Now however these trees have been destroyed, either cut down or stripped of their bark and this act of wanton destruction and crass ignorance has been sanctioned by tbe trustees who were appointed to preserve the rights of the people. The excuse that has been put forward is that the trustees had been o...

LIME IN THE DAIRY. Its Purifying Effect. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

LIME IN THE DAIRY. Its Purifying Effect. The New Zealand Department of Agriculture strongly advocates the use of lime in the dairy. Creameries which some years, ago used to steam all churns in order to keep them sweet and pure, now simply scrub them in -hot water, and, while the surface is still warm, apply with a brush a liberal coating of thick lime, which is' par tially absorbed by the pores of the »™uu, pumping ctnu IlliUilUg it urigllL and firm. The surplus lime is after wards washed off. The lime removes grease and sour smells from floors and utensils, making tinware brighter, and the grain of wood firm and close. The by-laws of some of the New Zealand factory companies recom mend lime instead of soda for cleaning their milk vessels, as well as for whitewashing the dairy buildings gen erally. The formula for preparing the lime water in which utensils may be immersed is thus given: — 'The solu tion of lime at ordinary temperatures' is one part in 700 parts of water. Such a solu...

Horatius. By M. Dennis, Grade IV. Horahius was a brave man. The Persians were coming to fight the J Romans when Horatius saw them coming and he and two other men also cut down the bridge so they could not get across. Horatius stopped on the bridge till the last pole went, then he jumped into the water and swam across. The people were so glad that they carried him all through Rome. They have a statue of him in Rome yet.

VICIOUS BULLS. Method of Handling. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

VICIOUS BULLS. Method of Handling. A means of treating unruly bulls which comes from America, is thus de scribed: — 'If a bull gets the notion-in his head that he is master, take him ; and throw him with a double loop a few times. This will put more sense of his inferiority into his head than anything we ever tried. The double loop is made thus: — Take a half-inch rope, say, 20 feet long. Pass one end through the nose ring, leaving about six feet in front, thence up between the horns. Then pass the rope around the body just back of the fore legs and make a half hitch at the back bone, thence to the hips, making another turn ar6und the body just in front of the hind legs with a half hitch -ftt the back bone and carry out the rope over the tail six or eight feet in the rear. .Let two men take hold of the end in front and two more on the rope in the rear and give a stout pull together, when down goes the bull as if he were shot. Hold him down by the head a few moments and then let him ...

THE RYE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 September 1912

The Rye Gkass. By Leslie Brown, Grade IV, The rye grass is very strong and thick when it comes up and is very pretty. Not very many people grow it in Stratford but I am sure they would feel a great benefit in it if they did. We had some at the school but when the poultry found it there when it was young they thought it very nice. They haven't been at it for a good while and it is very high.

Mr. Birrell and the Doctor. Speaking at the annual dinner of the Royal Society of Medicine on one occasion, Mr. Birrell declared that only once had lie. been in search of a physician. . 'I determined,' he said, 'on that single occasion- at least, to die secun dum artem. I started off to consult a doctor in Hariey-street, wno naa written a book on the disease from which I believed I suffered. It was a hot day in July, and I had to walk from near Addison-road to Harley street. I was in a profuse perspira tion when I arrived; I had to wait, and on the doctor's table I found the book written by him on 'my disease.' I opened it at random and at once read: 'The patient who is suffering from this disease never perspires.' 1 at once walked out.' She: It is no use. I wouldn't marry the handsomest man alive. He: Well, anyhow, you will hence forth have the satisfaction of know ing that he has asked, you. 'The most considerate wife I ever heard of,' said the philosopher, 'was a woman who used t...

Sugar Cane. By R. Stothers, Grade V. Sugar cane is grown mostly in Queensland and sent to other states j in Australia. Sugar is very nice in our tea and other things. Some people do not take much sugar and others not at all. There is some sugar beet grown in Victoria but I don't think there is any grown in Queensland. The biggest trade that is done in Queensland is 6ngar cane growing.

The head of the family gazed long and earnestly at the heir, as if to de-' tect evidence of a dawning humorist, but as the youth continued with great innocence to munch his fourth tart, he gasped and resumed his supper. The farmer was escorting the new ly-arrived boarder, a city lady,, from the train to the farmhouse, when all at once she spied a herd of calves in a field near by.
