METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 October 1911
METHODIST CHURCH. In the above church on Tuesday evening last, Sister Hannah, of, the Methodist Central Mission, Mel bourne, delivered a most interesting lecture on ' Side Lights of City Life.' Mr Waugh, of Maffra, kindly came over with his lantern and assisted with the illustrations. Mr Thomson occupied the chair, and introduced Sister Hannah in a few well-chosen words to the audince, who greeted her with applause. The first portrait which was thrown on the screen was that of the Rev. A. R. Edgar, so widely known as not to need com ment, save a few words of apprecia tion for his untiring efforts in doing so much to uplift suffering humanity. Mr. Judkins, who has also done so much for reform, was -shown on the next illustration, and was spoken of in tenderest tones by Sister Hannah as one who will always live in the mind&and hearts of the people after Death has laid his grim hand on him. The speaker gave a clear and des criptive account of tbe work carried on in several of t...

A FISH-SKIN COSTUME. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 October 1911
A FISH-SKIN COSTUME. Among the most wonderful gar-, ments worn at the present day are the curious fish-skin dresses of the wealthy women of the Gold tribe, liv- . ing along the Amur River, East Si beria. Though they can neither read nor write, these .people are producing astonishing ornaments, designs and embroidery work. The dress is com posed of several layers of fish-skin, the undermost representing the skin , of the garment proper, the uppermost showing the ornaments in their 'cut- out forms. Between these two lay ers .is inserted a middle layer, which ' serves as a background, throwing out distinctly all parts of the ornaments. The pieces of fish-skin forming the ornaments are generally colored blue. The front and back of the dress is adorned with these cut-out pieces of fish-skin with fish-skin thread. 'Don't you find Tom rather rough?' said the older summer girl. 'Yes, I do,' replied the other; 'and yet he says he. shaves every day, too.' Squallit: That song went well, eh? Di...

To-day witnesses the birth of the ' Stratford Sentinel,' the first news - paper published in Stratford, although settlement here dates back to 1841, For such an old town the progress made has been insignificant when one takes into consideration the many ways in which bounteous nature has favored this particular corner of our great island continent. We have a splendid climate, land which will produce almost anything that our more prosperous neighboring towns can supply, an abundance of good water all the year round, an excellent average rainfall, and beautiful sur- roundings and scenery, and yet we lag behind. Something is missing. A town which should be amongst the foremost in the State lies dreaming the years away. It is not because we do not possess townsmen with the ability to make history, but simply because we have grown into a state ot legarthy and disinclination to make tbe necessary effort to lift our town &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

THE NEW SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 20 October 1911
THE NEW SCHOOL The people of Stratford have for &nbsp; &nbsp; several years past been agitating for &nbsp; a new school building, in place of the old brick structure which has done &nbsp; service for over fifty years, and &nbsp; which is now quite out of date. &nbsp; There were times when the residents were almost in despair but when, two &nbsp; years ago, the Education Depart- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment decided to build a new and up- to-date school, their hopes and ex- &nbsp; pectations were at their zenith, and on Thursday, 28th ult., these hopes were realized when the new school was officially opened. The contract &nbsp; for its erection was let during the early part of this year and ever since the children have been eagerly watch- ing the progress of work and waiting more or less patiently for its completion. The new building will accommodate comfortably 150 children and consists &nbsp; of th...

Cleaning Ground. to the editor. I Sib, — In the ' country news of Mon day's ' Argus ' a few lines are devoted to the fact that Mr Andrews, of ' Ar doyne,' Stratford, had successfully cleared ground with a mixture of arse nic, soda and lime. To what extent this mixture 'clears' property I am not; aware, dui, inrougu your paper, x would inform Mr Andrews that all classes of timber have been permanently killed by the arsenic and washing soda method for the last four or five years on properties not many miles from Strat ford.

CONGRATULATIONS. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
C0NGBA.TCXATI0Ji'8. TO THE EBITOB. . Sir, — It is with great pleasure that I pen these few fines congratulating you on the first issue of the Sentinel. As one who has always advocated the establishing of a local newspaper, I am very pleased to hear the remarks on all sides as to the manner in which the first issue has turned out, and I trust that now we have a newspaper your columns will be open to the public to advocate matters that will tend to fur ther the progress of Stratford and dis trict. Also that with your valu able aid such matters as drainage, and a better system of lighting the town will be fully discussed. Better ar rangements for the upkeep of the cemetery, which is at present little better than a wilderness, should be made. 'Where is there another town the size of Stratford that is without a water supply? These matters have from time to time been brought under the notice of our shire councillors by deputations from the Progress Associa tion, and, in regard to the drai...
THE DUST NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
The Dust Nuisance. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— Expressions of dissatisfaotiou are very generally heard from business men and others at the apathy of the Council in not making a law prohibit ing the driving of stock through the principle streets of the town. - The business establishments in particular are heavily mc Dy tne ciouas oi aust which invade their shops, doing an unaccountable amount of damage to their stock. The costly and upto date display of seasonable goods now on view will be greatly depreciated by dust if immediate action is not taken by the Shire Council in having a law j framed. Our police officer brought this matter under their notice some j time back, and let us hope that at the ! next meeting of the Council they will rise to the occasion, seeing that there are just grounds for complaint. I trust you will lend your valuable as sistance in urging our Council to action. — Yours, etc., Under The Verandah. ? ? 1
CORRESPONDENCE. DIRTY DRAINS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
CORRESPONDENCE. ? * ? Dirtt Drains. TO THE EDITOK. Sir, — Will you kindly allow me space iu your columns to draw the attention of the general public who are not already aware of the fact to the filthy state of our street channels. Now that the warm weather is approaching these plague spots are becoming a deadly menace to the community. One spot especially, near the railway end of Raymond street is in a disgusting condition. On a warm day one is compelled to give it a wide berth, the stenoh aris ing from it being unbearable. A lot of work is being done in the vicinity of therailway station, where great carals are being excavated, for what object I don't know, but I am of opinion that portion of the money spent there could be made better use of in putting exist ing so-called drains in a decent state. Surely it is the duty of our ' city fathers ' to look after the health of the people they represent. If something is not done at once to remedy matters they whose duty it is to act will b...

SALE DISTRICT TEACHERS ASSOCIATION. ADDRESS BY HR. W. E. HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
SALE DISTRICT TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. Address bt TWV W. E. TTat.t.. The ordinary monthly meeting of the Sale District Teachers' Associa tion was held on Saturday, October 7. The President, Mr. Daly, occupied the chair and there was a fair attend* ance of members. Alter tne format business was con cluded Mr. W. E. Hall, head teacher of Stratford State school, gare an ad dress on 'School Management.' The speaker. in opening his re- I marks, said that one of the first things for a teacher to consider was the clas sification of the children. A boy should be put i into the class where he would derive the greatest benefit. #ne child might do fairly well in his class and yet it wonld not be wise to promote him, while another child who had not dose quite so well might, with advantage, be pushed on. Again, the teacher must classify according to the child's attainments in the most impor tant subject of the curriculum. What was the most important subject P Most teachers would tell you that it w...
VERY SIMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
VERY SIMPLE. When Mr. Archibald Forbes was special correspondent in the Russo-Turkish war, and was thrilling the people day after day by his vivid despatches from the soene of action, a Berlin paper pro fessed to explain the excellence of Mr. Forbes' descriptions. One day a certain German journalist met the JSngLish correspondent at the seat of war, and after the ordinary courtesies had been exchanged, com plimented him oh the power and ac curacy of his work, and implored him to reveal the secret of it. ' Oh,' said Mr. ForbeB, with the ut most nonchalance, 'it's all very simple indeed.' ' Simple !' exclaimed the German. 'I really don't know what you mean.' 'Well, I jnst manage it. in this way,' explained the other, 'I prepiare a full description of the battle in advance. I next go to the Russian commander and say to him, ' Here is a fine description, now getv up a- batt.la .accordingly.' The commander, being an obliging man, does me the little favour, and then it's all . right I'

The Quaker's Deduction. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
The Quaker's Deduction. A certain squire never asked for or accepted advice. One day he drove fifteen miles to a town and left his horse and trap in a 3ide street in charge of a strange young man. Then he went off in search of an old friend, a Quaker. 'Thee didn't leave a valuable horse . and carriage to a stranger's care, Amos?' ' remonstrated his friend. ? 'Thee'd better go get it, and drive to the livery-stable. This town is not like the little place thee lives in.' 'I looked the young man over,' said the squire testily, 'and in my judg ment it was perfectly safe to leave him in charge. Let us say no more about it.' 'Very well,' said his friend; but when at the end of two hours the squire took his leave the Quaker shut his office and accompanied the' squire to the place where he had left' his equipage. It had vanished, and inquiries brought no information as to where It or the young man left in charge had gone. ? Arthur: When we are married, how sweet it will be to sit in the gar...
