Commercial. MELBOURNE 'UA1LKETS FAT SUF.F.r. There was an improved demand fosr all grades of fat sheep, with brisk competition, both for export and local requirements. The market, however fluctuated con -idei ably, prices fre quently showing an advance of fully 1/ per head, aud occasionally receding to about equal to late rates, fu many instances prime fat crossbred ewes ruled quite 1/6 to 2/ per head higher,, while for moderately fat and useful AWAQ. in WK morinrt nnA ^rAS». © ? ? - — 7 — wv,%' breds biddings were irregular, thougk in most cases prices ruled firmer.

THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
THE TURF. ' Piastre won the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday last in resolute fashion, and clipped a quarter of a second off the previous best record. Hallowmas, Uncle Sam and Ladies' Man finished in that order behind him. Duke Foote, the red hot favorite, knocked out three furlongs from home. In going to the front and making a real erood nace in thn Mnlhrinmo Cup the New Zealander Shuja served a good purpose. He got the field nicely strung out, and everyone could see the race. Cider was prominent : most of the way, but he was one of the last home. Duke Foote, as far as I could see, was among the last lot all the way. Some people called his name as the field made the bend, but I think it was only because they thought he should be there, I could never find him, and, as he - finished in the last lot, the .probability is he was always there. Poor old Lady Medallist was started. She cantered fairly well, bat coald not raisa a gallop in the race, and was merci fully pulled up at the end of half ...

The Tkaitic Bridge. By V. Ducret, Grade VIII. [ The traffic bridge that now crosses the Avon river is the second one that has been erected. The first one was completely capsized during a big 8ood. After this the river was crossed by the people in a punt. This punt is now in use five or six miles down the river. The present bridge was then built and for a great many years it stood ' without ovnemspa in f*PT-ftirs ** ? — r ? — I In the year 1891 the. largest flood that has -ever come down the river took place. The river overflowed its banks and covered the whole ^ of the Nuntin flat, from Baylis's. hill back to the river to the extent' of several feet. It was during this flood that the western approach was washed away^ so -|iat it became necessary to extend the end of the bridge. ?? From this time forward the river washed the land on the eastern side to such an extent that it became necessary to spend some thousands of pounds on sheet piling the bank, ? ? ? ? X ?

THE MINERAL SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
The Mineral SruiNt;. By Hylda Gray, Grade VI. The mineral spring is about half a mile from Stratford situated at the foot of a hill in the midst of a grove of shady trees. This spring is bricked in and has been so for some years past. Th'e water gushes up out, of the ground and flows through a spout in n V» wl tn ^ The. water o;£&i6..-$-pcitie,'is ? Very cool and clear, and people often come to drink it. It has many different minerals in it and is good for many things. It has cost the council a fair amount of money as it had to be bricked in a few times when idle doing boys broke it in. The spring is fenced in and there are stiles on the fence by which people enter. It is , nice in Summer to come and have a drink of this cool water or sit among the shady tre.es Some people do not like the mineral spring water, but those are the people who do not know what is good for them.
MAKING THE POPULAR SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
MAKING THE POPULAR SONG. Here's the way many popular songs * are written. Two fellows, one a piano player and the other a lyric writer, get together at a piano. The piano player runs his fingers over the keys, - strikes a chord, leans back and looks up at the ceiling. With rag-time ec stasy in his eyes, he murmurs: 'Lis- ten to that, bo. Some bear, huh!' 'You baby!' ejaculates the lyric writer. 'It's a bear cat rag.' 'What's the mater with that for a title?' suggests the piano player. 'Go to it,' says his partner. 'Bang, Bang,' goes the piano, and the piano player leans over the keys, humming softly to the tune he grinds out. ' 'It's a bear, it's a bear, it's a bear cat rag, you baby, it's a bear cat rag.' 'Great kid, kill it,' shouts the lyric writer above the din, and the piano player plays it three ways across the board, and winds up with a hot finish that sends, the lyric writer into a state ' of coma until he emerges with words that fit the fine frenzy of the music ian's effort...
Before and After. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
Before and After. A certain provincial town had ap pointed a new sergeant, and thereby hangs a tale. In the course of a cricket match, one of the players drove a ball out of the ground. It passed through one of the windows of a house occupied by a police con stable. Two minutes later a furious man in blue strode into the cricket ground and demanded to know the name ana address of 'the idiot who broke my window.' 'The idiot' — who was still batting — was duly pointed out, and the irate constable, refusing to wait until the batsman was out,, stalked across the pitch, 'to teach the fellow what the law had to say on the sub ject.' When quite near the batsman, the constable suddenly pulled up. ' j 'AVell, constable,' asked the player, | 'what is it?' 'Nothing, sir,' stammered the man in blue. 'Leastways, sir, I mean to say sir, as that was a beautiful hit you smashed my window with!' The batsman was none other than the new sergeant, who had not been recognised in his cricketing flannels....
FOR THE HOLIDAY TRUNK. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
FOR THE HOLIDAY TRUNK. The summer holiday so eagerly looked forward to and heartily enjoy ed by the small folks, whether spent among the green fields of the country or on the golden sands of the blue sea, is not, however, a time of unal loyed pleasure for mother or nurse. To them frequently it is a time of dis comfort, having all their usual duties to nerform removed from the conveni ences and comforts of home. When there are three or four little ones and their wardrobes to take away for a fortnight, or maybe a month, the question of luggage be comes literally a 'weighty' matter. But there are a few trifling articles (hat, included or omitted in the lug gage, make a considerable difference to the comfort of mother and children when away from home. If at the time of setting forth on a holiday the weather is gloriously fine and warm one is apt to forget that near the sea the temperature sometimes drops considerably towards evening, and a small extra blanket or a hot-water bottle would...
MEMORIAL TO AN APPLE TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
MEMORIAL TO AN APPLE TREE. A ceremony unique in the history of fruit-growing took place at Dundela, near Morrisburg, Ontario, recently. A monument was unveiled to an apple tree. The farmers of Dundas County by popular subscription have placed a marble stone close to the spot where stood the original Mcintosh red-apple tree that succumbed only recently after braving storms and enemies for over a hundred years. About 115 years ago John Mcintosh, who went to Canada with the United Empire Loyalists and settled in Ma tiilda township, found a number of ap ple trees while clearing a place for a home. One of them produced fruit / of such superior color and quality that he named it the Mcintosh Red. It soon attracted attention, and his son Allan propagated from it and com menced to disseminate the variety. In recent years it has been widely circulated, and now it is planted all - over tha continent where apples flour ish. In 1896 the old tree was partly injured by fire, but continued to bear...
THE METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 November 1912
The Methodist Church. .... &nbsp; By Maggie Jones, Grad VII. Many years ago, when Stratford &nbsp; was yet in its infancy, the Methodists (or- Wesleyans as they were then called) had for their worship a small, rough bark constructure with only four small windows in it. It was to all appearances more like abush- hut &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; than a church, but as the township grew and more people came to make their homes here, they found that this place was much too small for their needs. So wishing to have a &nbsp; larger church that would accomodate a much larger congregation, they called a meeting, and decided to get up a subscription to help build a new church, and as the squatters and farmers at that time were all very wealthy men, and always ready to help in a good cause, they had very little difficulty in raising enough &nb...
