Literary Taste. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 November 1912

Literary Taste. 'Say,' remarked the hasty individ ual tq the young woman in the book department, 'have you a novel about a girl, with slate-colored eyes?' 'I don't recall one just now,' she said, ' but we have a very good novel by Harold Grinders about a girl with tawny hair.' 'Is her picture on the cover?' 'Yes, sir, drawn, by James Mont gomery Twisty.' 'Well, gimme that.' The age of specialism! A pick pocket who was arrested in Paris last week mentioned that he only exercised his profession on the irresistible poc kets of persons watching an aero plane. A woman who. has a nose for news usually has a chin for telling it. \

The Children's Passing. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 November 1912

The Children's Passing. Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat. Down the years the children go; Dim procession changing 'e'er, Streaming from the long-ago. Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat. Down the years the children creep; Ah, how many mothers' arms 1 Beg the little ones to keep. Pit-a-pat, pit-a-pat. Ah, for some rare balm to ease Hearts that by the wayside stood | Whispering good-bye to these! |

GOLDSMITH WAS THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 November 1912

GOLDSMITH WAS THERE. When the late Franklin Fyl'es first visited London he told his travelling - companion, as they rose from break fast the first morning, that he would have to be gone the next day.

8YDNEY WRITER'S SUCCESS. Tram Conductor to Leading Novelist His Heart-Breaking Struggles. The remarkable success in Amer ica of James Francis Dwyer, the Syd ney journalist who left Australia some seven years ago to try his fortunes in the literary world abroad, has been the theme of all the leading United States papers of late.

Obituary,     MR. JAMES CARR. The death of Mr James Carr, although, not unexpected, came as a surprise to many who had not anticipated so sud den an ending to a useful and honor able career. The deceased gentleman was a native of Maneroo, New South Wales, and settled on Inverbroom 45 years ago, and at the time of his death was 69 years of age. His father, in early life, was in charge of one of Major Mit chell's survey parties in N.S, W., and subsequently owned ' One Tree Farm,' on Sale Plains, now known as Spring- field, where his sons lived as young men, the family later on removing to Maffra.

THE WATERPLANE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912

THE WATERPLANE. ^ ? | Suggested by the view of Mr. Gra hame- White flying past Bexhill in the 'Daily Mail' waterplane: — O, the fierce purr of it, Clang of it, whirr of it! O, the brave might of it, Fight of it, flight of it! O, the swift curve of it, i Swoop of it, swerve of it! O, the proud speed of it, O, the vast greed of it, Gripping the air! . Nay, but the soul of it, Keeping control of it! Nay, but the heart of. it, Beating as part of it, Ready to. dare! Hazardous breath in it, Danger and death in it, Nay, but the skill of it. Courage and will of it, That is the thrill of it, That is the wonder that flutters up there ! That is no engine, random and blind, Driven by pounding piston and rod; Its pinions are courage, its pilot is mind, Its nostrils are full of the breath of a god. For there like a speck, 'twixt the wings' mighty span, Sit the courage and wisdom and will of a Man! O stars, ye are shaken! O space, thou are slain! By the wiles of a soul, by the wings of a brain. — ...

HOW BEAUTIFUL FACES ARE SPOILT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912

HOW BEAUTIFUL FACES ARE SPOILT. 'A lovely face, but what a frame!' was the exclamation of Rossetti, the artist, commenting on a young lady he had met. The 'frame' of the face is the hair, the hat, and the collar. Faces, like pictures, can be spoilt by the frame. Most girls, having once adopted a style of hairdressing, never think of troubling themselves as to whether it ic tho mncf cnito^ +s\ A small face with small features can be vastly improved by arranging the ! hair piled up on the top of the head. A thin face with sharp and pointed features can be bettered by expanding the hair over tho ears. Fringes may disfigure the prettiest face and de prive it of half its beauty. .'Which will yo.u have, madam,' asked Coullier, the celebrated Paris hair artist, of a lady Ayhose hair ho was arranging, 'a pretty face or a fringe?' The fringe was absolutely disastrous to her style of beauty, how ever it might suit others. The fringe makes the low forehead lower, and the broad face broader. ' ...

ABE WE OVERCROWDED? A Chatty Article About Your Chances of Success in Life. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912

ARE WE OVERCROWDED? A Chatty Article About Your Chances of Success in Life. By Fortune Free. 'I am sometimes told,' said Lord Rosebery some time since, 'that the difficulties of life have increased so that there are more obstacles than ever in the way of the man who sets himself to climb to success. I do not believe it. On the contrary, I see around me a vast multitude of per sons who have arrived at dazzling realisations of worldly success; and who shall number those who attain, without any special' advantages of birth, l.-rtun«, or influence — by their own unaided efforts — to positions of prosperity and honor?' These word;) seem, to me to be true. When 1 hear the wail of the dismal folk who declare that 'nothing is any good nowadays,' I like to think of Lord Rosebery's words. A number of my friends declare that the prizes 'of life get more diffi cult of attainment every year, and that to work one's way up in these times is a superhuman task. .

THE MISCHIEVOUS DODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912

THE MISCHIEVOUS DODDER. Perhaps no more striking instance of the necessity for seed cleaning could be advanced than that of clover seed (says a writer in the Southland Times). When it is delivered from the threshing machine it is.no more fit to be sent out. to farmers for sow ing than so much sand or . sawdust. To begin with, the seed is mixed up with quantities of foreign matter — earth, small stones, vegetable fibres, fragments of wood and the like. Of course, this miscellaneous collection is not. in itself, ininriniis tr- tho nrns pective crop; but it serves to make weight in a manner entirely deroga tory to the interests of the buyer. So all these odds and ends must be carefully sifted from the seed. Nor is this all. For among the newly threshed seed, presumably clover, there is certain to be a considerable quantity of seed which will germinate and spring up as weeds of different varieties — all, of course, harmful to the clover crop. Among these injuri ous seeds is an exceeding...

These buildings, not including the Post Office, were erected in the year 1884, and opened in the year 1885, These buildings are, at present, under the same roof, but things were not so until recintly.
