Mr M'Lachlan is returning, thanks said he appreciated to the full the work done by the ladies and gentlemen on his behalf. They had no light task in front of them, for the opposition had been organising for months.

School Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
School Committee. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Stratford School Committee was held on Tuesday, when there was a full attendance of members. It was resolved to hold over till next meeting the offer jeceived for the purchase ot the pump, piano and piano case at the old school. The secretary (in whose hands the matter had been left) reported that he had taken preliminary steps with re ference to the formation of a night school at Stratford. He had ascer tained that theri must be at least 20 likely attendants thereat three nights a week. He had taken no further steps in the matter, as he felt sure that, even if 20 names could be obtained, the holding of classes three nights per week would prove an un surmonntable barrier. Mr Andrews thought otherwise, and, after some discussion, it was re solved to leave the matier in his hands ; he undertaking to get the re quired number of names.

CAN WE LOVE MORE THAN ONCE? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
CAN WE LOVE MORE THAN ONCE? By H. H. In nearly every work of romance I read the hero loves the heroine mad ly, passionately, devotedly — and ever lastingly. Sometimes there appears to be a bar to their union, whereat the heroine and hero declare dramatically tfy&t they can never love anyone else — rL's no use trying — they cannot live without each other; and so, in order to prevent a tragedy, the author brings them together again, and everything ends up happily, as romances are ex pected to do. When, however, I look around in this matter-of-fact old world I ask myself the question whether the sug gestion that a man or woman can love only once is not really a ridiculous one. Why cannot they? I doubt very much whether any young man or woman who reads this letter, however madly they may be in love with each other, could not, if necessity arose, thoroughly cure them selves of their passion, and, having cured themselves, could love another with an equal intensity to enable them t...
All the Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
All the Difference. When Darwin's 'Origin of Species' was published, a friend was discuss ing it with a bishop. ' 'I don't really care whether my grandfather was an ape or not,' the friend observed rather heatedly. 'It doesn't matter to me.' 'No,' replied the bishop, 'I don't suppose it does; but it made a lot of difference to your grandmother!' Diner: How comes this dead fly in the soup? Waiter: In fact, sir, I have no posi tive idea how the poor thing came by its death. Perhaps it had not taken any food for a long time, dashed upon the soup, ate too much of it, and con tracted an inflammation of the stom ach that brought on death. The fly must have had a weak constitution, for when I served up the soup it was dancing merrily on the surface. Per haps — and the idea presents itself only at this moment — it endeavored to swallow too large a piece of vege table; this, remaining fast in the throat, caused a choking in the wind pipe. This is the only reason I can give for the death of t...

Which Pearl? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
Which Pearl? The little waitress who brought ! their drinks was particularly pretty, and some of the younger men chaffed her a good deal about the rosiness of her cheeks and the goldiness of her hair, casting doubts on their being true to Nature. . 'What is your name?' one of them asked. : 'Pearl,' she replied, flushing a lit tle. 'Pearl!' repeated the actor. 'What a pretty name. Are you the pearl of great price?' The waitress's temper was beginning to slip its moorings by this time. 'No,' she replied tartly. 'At pres ent I'm the pearl before swine!'
AN ALPINE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
AN ALPINE GARDEN. The highest garden in the world is said to be the Alpine Garden of Bot any, which was laid out by the late Canon Chanoux, formerly Rector of the Hospice of Little St. Bernard. It is situated at an elevation of 2200 metres, or 7150 feet. Here are to be found almost all species of mountain flowers, not only those common in the Alps, Pyrenees, Carpathians, the Caucasus, and the Balkans, but even from afar off Himalaya. The canon conceived the idea in 1888, but it was not until 1902 ? that his project became effect- . ive. In the latter year the commune of Thuile gave him the land.
Cheerful About It. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
Cheerful About It. Father wanted to test the generous nature of his son, so, as the boy was going to church one morning, he said: 'Here, Benny, is a sixpence and a penny. You may put whichever you please in the contribution-box.' When he returned his father asked which coin he had given. Benny re plied. 'Well, papa, it was this way; the preacher said the Lord loved a cheer ful giver, and I knew I could give a penny a good deal more cheerfully than Ii could give sixpence, so I put the „ penny in.' A sailor was once asked by a mess mate not quite so well up in matters social as himself to explain to him the third figure in a quadrille. 'You first of all heave ahead,' said he, 'and pass your adversary's yard arms; then in a jiffy regain your berth on the other tack in the same kind of order; slip along sharp, and take your station with your partner in line; back and fill, and then fall on your heel, and bring up with your craft. She then manoeuvres ahead off along side you; then make s...
A Great Liberty. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 November 1911
A Great Liberty. Old Mr. Potter sent his maidser vant round to Miss Primm to complain of her cat tearing up his flower-beds, and helping herself from the pantry. Miss Primm was very indignant, and said that if the damage was not im agination, then the dog at No. 20 was responsible. Next morning the maid called again on Miss Primm. 'Master says you're quite wrong a sayin' it were the dog over the way wot 'ave scraped hup all the flowers an' stole things outer the pantry.' 'Why, pray?' asked Miss Primm, frigidly. 'Well, mum,' replied the maid, 'if it were the dog over the way, 'e 'ave took the liberty ov 'avin' a litter o' kittens in our toolshed, an* 'e's give your cat the job o' nussin' 'em!'
RIBBON PAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 December 1911
RIBBON PAINTING. A fashion -which will commend it self to the home artist is the use of hand-painted ribbon for trimming evening and other gowns. Both silk and-satin ribbon are treated to water color designs of a 'sketchy' artistic type, usually in colors of 'chintzy' suggestion, or imitative of Japanese color schemes with the 'Chinese' blues, pure greens and reds, and in evitable touch of black. A broad satin ribbon hand-painted in a bold conventional design makes an excellent skirt 'band' of the fashionable kind. It can, if desired, be veiled with chiffon, in order to produce the attractive 'blurred' ef fect so well liked this season. More over, ribbons serve to trim tunics and Magyar blouses, the edges of the rib bon being turned under to make it simulate piece satin, or a headed edge can be worked over the selvedge in beads colored like the painted design. It is an original detail of this charac ter which just now distinguishes the most expensive gown. There are in the history o...
COMMON HORSE AILMENTS. Hints on Treatment. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 December 1911
COMMON HORSE AILMENTS. Hints on Treatment. ? ; 'First aid' knowledge in regard to animals is what every farmer should possess. lit is often the means of sav ing a valuable animal, besides a lot of suffering. If a farmer has some prac tical knowledge of the symptoms of the everyday ailments a little prompt attention goes a long way towards making things run smoothly with the stock. Undoubtedly the two most common aliments to wnicn tne equine is liable are windy colic, or gripes, and stoppage, or dry gripes. The for mer may be easily distinguished from the latter by acute attacks coming at intervals which gradually lessen should the horse be getting worse, and the attacks will be of a more lengthy duration so soon as ever the animal takes a turn for the better. The symptoms of this trouble cannot be unnoticed nor taken for any other disease. The horse will be noticed stamping, turning its head round to the body to\ almost the exact spot from which the trouble is arising, ly ing down q...
TO OWNERS OF MOTHERLESS FOALS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 December 1911
TO OWNERS OF MOTHERLESS FOALS. I A very uncommon sight was recent ly to be seen at the farm of Mr. Joseph Walton, near Ipswich, where two foals | are being reared by cows, one because its dam, a Clydesdale mare, absolute j ly refused to take to it, and the other because its mother died and it was on the verge of starvation. The mare would not nurse her foal last year, [ but would rather have killed it if it had not been taken away, therefore Mr. Walton's foreman patiently set to work to teach it to suck a Red Poll cow which had recently, calved. More perseverance was needed than the average man would have given to, the task, but in the end he won, and the youngster learned how to bend its neck to reach the teats of a some what low-grown cow. The mare showed no sign of parental affection for the second foal, born this spring, so it was forthwith put on to the cow which proved such a good foster mother last 'year, while the mare her self goes regularly to work. There appears to be ver...
HINTS ON FRUITGROWING. Planting of Fruit Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 December 1911
I HINTS ON FRUITGROWING. By Pomona. Planting of Fruit Trees. In a very short time tree planting will be in full swing in old and new fruit-growing centres. The fruit tree when planted may be said to be a per manent crop. Therefore a little more than ordinary care should be bestowed on the operation. To be successful, the tree planter must be endowed with patience and considerable judgment — patience to perform the work without hurry, and judgment to enable him to choose the best tree for certain posi tions and the correct tilth in the soil used in filling around the tender roots of the young tree. Many and vari able are the soils to be planted, and while one class of land may be emi nently suited to the apple and pear, it may be entirely unsuited to the apricot, peach, or cherry. In large areas (fifteen to fifty acres) there will be found in most cases soils that will be suitable to all the fruits named, and before the orchard is laid out for planting the situations should be chosen...

MINERAL WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 December 1911
MINERAL WEALTH. Men sometimes dream of enormous wealth stored deep in the earth, be low the reach of miners, but experts aver that there is little or no ground for believing that valuable metallic deposits lie very deep in the earth's crust. Such deposits, it is said, are made by underground waters, and ow ing to the pressure on the rocks at great depths the waters are confined to a shell near the surface. With few exceptions ore deposits become too; lean to repay working below three thousand feet. Nine mines in ten are poorer in the second thousand feet than in the first thousand, and poorer yet in the third thousand than in the second. ? A gentleman on board a steamboat, with his family, was asked by his youngest son what made the boat go, when he gave a minute description of the machinery and its principles in the following words: — 'You see, my boy, it's like this. This thingumbob goes down through that hole and fastens the jigmaree, and that connects the crinkumcrank um; and th...
