"MONA LISA." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 18 October 1912
'MONA LISA.' j 'Who's this Mona Lisa I hear so much about?' demanded Carrie Slay ton, as she entered the stenograph er's room in Martin and Finkelstein's offices. 'Why, don't you read the papers?' replied the' acid Miss Blake, AA'ho Avas picking industriously at the clogged letters of her typeAvriter. 'The 'Mona Lisa' is a painting of the most beau tiful Avoman in the Avorld, Avhich has disappeared from the — well, . from the picture'1 gallery in Paris, AA'here it hung.' 'The most beautiful woman in the Avorld!' Cried Carrie, glancing invol untarily at the mirror Avhich overhung the Avashstand. 'Well/ perhaps not the most beauti ful,' corrected Miss Blake, judiciously, 'but at all' events the most fascinating. For ages and ages,' she continued in the; breathy tones of romance, 'the Avonderful eyes of Mona Lisa have lured and repelled and then lured back again the thousands of men Avho year ly pass before her and lay tribute at the shrine of her. mysterious beauty.' 'Well, I neA'er!'...
A KISS HE TOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 18 October 1912
A KISS HE TOOK. A kiss he took and a backAvard look; And her heart grew. suddenly light-,: ? er; ' ' '.' A trifle, you say, to. color a day, Y'et the dull grey morn seemed . brighter. For hearts are such that a tender touch May banish a look of sadness; A small, silght thing can make us sing, But a frown will check our gladness. The cheeriest ray along-, -our way Is the little act of kindness, And the keenest sting some little thing That-Avas done in a moment of blind ness. We can braA'ely face life in a home if strife No foothold can discover, And be lovers still, if we only AA'ill, Though youth's bright days are over. All, sharp as SAVords cut the unkind Avords That are far beyond recalling. When a face lies hid 'neath a coffin lid, And bitter tears are falling, We fain Avould give half the lives Ave live To undo our idle scorning; Then let us not miss the smile and ? kiss When we part in the light of morn ing.

FRIENDS AFTER A FIGHT. ' A fine Newfoundland dog and ? mas tiff had a quarrel over a bone, or some other trifling matter. They were fight ing ou * bridge, and being blind with rage, as is often the case, over they went into the water. Tha banks were so high that they were forced to swim some distance before they came to a landing-place. It was very easy for the Newfoundland dog, be wis as much at home in the water as a seal, ifut not so with poor Bruce. | He struggled and tried his best to awim; but made little headway, Old Bravo, the Newfoundland, had reached the land, and turned to look at his old enemy. He saw plainly that his strength was fast failing, and that be was likely to drown. So what should he do. bat . plunge in, seize him gently by th« collar, and then, keeping his nose above water, tow him safely into port. It was' cttriuu to see the dog* mk a4.

BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 18 October 1912
BlRI-5. J By M. Maxwfell, Grade VI. I Some birds are very interesting to study. They have great ideas of nest building. When it is getting near nesting time they are very busy selecting a place to rear their yonng. When the young birds get their feathers it is a busy time ? for the old birds as they have to teach tnem to 3v. Birds do not likfi vnn tr- en near when they are nesting. Smaller birds such as sparrows, are very timid a&d they are not to be made tame like the parrots and cockatoos. Some birds are rarely found in our districts. A white sparrow if ever Been is always with a mob of others.

Ope Bird, Day Walk. By Hilda Gray, Grade VI. We celebrated bird day on Friday. ,-In the morning we went, out for a ramble to study the habits of birds. We left the school 'labout ten o'clock and went up to the three mile hill. On this walk we saw a great many birds of different kinds. Some birds are very valuable' to us. For in stance, some eat grubs out of the ground which do a greatdeal of harm to farmers, others kill snakes and some eat insect pests. Birds are also interesting to us, some sing sweetly. Others can be tamed and taught to repeat , words . in the English language. But then there are some kinds ef birds that are great pests. Birds that ruin a man's w ay of getting his living. They eat fruit off his trees, eat his corn, and do him harm inagzeat many other ways.

Bird Day, I By L. Martin. J W© celebrated Bird Day on Friday last the 11th October, We left the school about 10 o'clock with our head teacher, Mr Hall and walked to the^three mile hill.

Aus tralia has a great variety of birds, amongst them are songsters ..and others talk .very- plain, it isa pity to ' shoot such interesting birds as i these. . i

A Bearer of the Burden I.—On Leave. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 18 October 1912
A Bearer of the Burden j By Ottwell Binns. j I. — On Leave. To say that Jack Hammil, lieuten ant in the Indian Medical Service, was enjoying himself is to record what all Simla knew; and to urge that he was making the very best : use of his time is to invite criticism from- crossgrain ed bachelors and disappointed Bene dicts. To be sure he was up at Simla on leave; and when a man has been stewing in the plains for. many weary months, much may be forgiven if he permits the air^of ' the Himalayas to exhilarate him; and, after all, a man is only young once. Young, good-looking/ and ??gay-spirit-:.' * . ed, the daughters-of Simla smiled on him though their mothers frowned, and chaperons, cumbered with fears as hens with chicks, looked a't him as-, kance ; lor i t was known . that : he had little besides his. pay, which, , whilst it may. meet a man?s mess-bills; will not run to the luxury of matrimony.

Flower Show. The Flower Show and Competi tions, to be held in the Mechanics' hall on Wednesday and Thursday next, will, if indications are a guide, far outclass the show of last year. Already the entries have begun to come in freely, and the number re ceived to date show a considerable increase in the number received at the corresponding period last. The nice warm weather now being ex perienced, though generally bad for the district, is just what was needed to open up the roses, peas, and other flowers. At a horticultural show iu Sale ou Wednesday, the prevailing opinion was that that date was too soon for the flush of flowers, and that the Stratford people were fortu nate in selecting the dates they did.
