THE KNOT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

Tun Knoi'. By J. B., Grade V. Yesterday I went for a walk to the 'Knob'. There are many spring flowers out in bloom. It does not look very pretty now because all the wattle trees have their bark stripped and they are very bare. Some of the limbs of them are lying about, and makes it' look untidy. I got a bunch of flowers and some Supple Jack, and then I went home.

Not Exactly. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

Not Exactly. An amusing story is going the rounds about one of the Welsh mem bers of Parliament. The other day he met a very distinguished-looking man whose face seemed familiar, but whose name he couldn't for the life of him recall. The stranger bowed, and the M.P. nnilfipH and shrwtlr lionria Qtill rftfhnr worried, he began to chat about cer tain political matters, and the stranger remarked that he was just on his way . to a sitting of the House of Iaords. The M.P. began to see daylight. A peer, obviously! But his title still' was a puzzle. They talked very in timately for some little time, discuss- i ing the action of the Lords over a cer tain Bill, and as the stranger moved off the M.P.'s conscience prompted him to ipake a clean breast of it. 'I am afraid, my lord,' he said, '1 should have said before that, though . I recognise your lordship's face, I can- : » not recall your name.' 'Oh,' replied the distinguished-look- vi ing stranger, 'I am not exactly a mem- .r ber of the Hou...

BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR, AND DEATH OF NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

Battle ov Trafalgar, ani- De&tk qv Nelson. England has had many heroes but never had she one who so entirely possessed the love of his fellow countrymen as Nelson. Every man knew that his heart was as mercifnl as it was fearlesa. He served his country with his whole hearty eonl, and strength, and therefore they loved him as trnly and as warmly as he loved England. When his bai^e pushed off the people cheered and he returned their cheers by waving his hat. The sentinels who were scattered among the crowd endeavored to prevent them from trespassing upon this ground, and an officer ordered them to drive the people down with their bayonets, but was compelled speedily to retreat, for the people were not to be stopped from gazingjtill _ the laBt. moment upon the hero — the darling hero of England. At daybreak next morning, the combined fleets were seen distinctly from the 'Victory's' deck, for that was the name of Nelson's ship, formed in a close line of battle ahead, on the starb...

GOOD THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

GOOD THINGS. i Men and women are created by im puting to them noble qualities of which they are not conscious, and by giving them responsibility. It is a mistake to imagine that our times are harder and more flurried than those of our grandfathers. Every age is to itself an age of bustle and change. .tt.ii tuiuugu nit; vyy uavc tu awij su the sooner we learn some of the parts that will fall to us — hero, modest help er, accepted or rejected lover — the bet ter we shall conduct ourselves. It is the serious minority which' ac complishes great things. Every child that grows up without adequate care is certain to be a bur den to the State in after-life. If we lose Sunday, we are losing what France and Italy are trying to get back. ? „ ! One of the most striking features of the present decade is the miracu lous way in which, the right people have appeared to meet new needs.

SENT TO SIBERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

SENT TO SIBERIA. By a Recently-Escaped 'Political Prisoner.' i ? Siberia? It is many months now since I saw the last of that terrible land, but the sound of the name still nils me with fear in spite of the fact that 1 am a free man. No one who has spent a part of his life- in a Siberian prison is ever the same man again. Picture to yourself a long line of prisoners dragging themselves wearily week after week towards some village in the frozen heart of Siberia. For merly I believe the journey took years, when every yard of the way from St. Petersburg or Moscow was done on foot. But nowadays the TransSiber ian Railway carries the exiles, herded like cattle in bare vans, to Irkutsh, their to start their long march up country, chained wrist to wrist. The village in which the doomed prisoner is fated to spend the rest of nis life is perhaps 3UU miles off, and the prisoners, chained and half-starved seldom make more than six or eight miles a day; Those political prisoners who can pay trav...

THE MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

THE MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN. ( A great French authoress once said: When we get older we take greater pains to please.' Probably this is the reason why the most fascinating women in the world's history have at tracted men when they were long past their first youth. Cleopatra was over forty when Antony fell itf- love with her, and the beautiful Emma Lady Hamilton captivated Lord Nelson when she bad reached that so-called unromantic age. Some men are like a laying hen, they set up a big cackling every time they do anything. Many a man who is calling loudly tor justice would be in gaol if he got No one ever has the choice of the very _ best. Most things, humanly speaking, are simply the choice of one good thing and one not so good.

THE LOLLY STALL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

Tin: Lolly Stall, Bv Olive Smith, Grade VIII. This stall most probably will be appreciated (and we hope patronised) mostly by the children. Of conrse it must be arranged accordingly. Small paper baskets could be made and filled with lollies, as most children can be attracted more by colored baskets than by ordinary paper bags. This plan of making paper baskets has been tried and found successful, and it was round that berore long, all the baskets of lollies had gone and still more came for 'them. There is ' still another way in whieh the lollies 1 may be put to attract attention. Very often small tina are got and many of these are prettily colored. These may be filled likewise and sold as the baskets were. Again a piece of colored paper inay be rolled round filled with lollies, and tied at both ends.

Spoofing the "Council." OR OWEN LAWSON'S ORDEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 11 October 1912

Spoofing the ' Council.' I OR OWEN LAWSON'S ORDEAL. Owen Lawson had made up his mind to quit Russia. Things had been far from comfortable for some time past; but since 'Red Sunday' they had been intolerable — that is, for anyone suspected of belonging to a 'people's' society or of having any leanings to wards the side of the 'people.' Owen Lawson was the chief en nrinfi*-r nf a larere fao.torv in St.. Pf»tprs burg, and being, like most Englishmen, rather outspoken, had easily rendered , himself an object of suspicious notice to the police.- And there was some justification for this. His warm heart had led him, a year or two previously, to join one of the many secret socie ties with which Russia abounds. The one he had been deluded into ally ing himself with, however, was sup posed to exist for propagandist pur poses alone, and was declared to be opposed to the use of physical force. He was soon disillusioned, however. After he had attended a meeting or two, it became more bellicose,...
