THE RAINY DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

THE RAINY DAY. I knew a man not long ago who basked in Fortune's smile, He toiled the long days through, and so he soon amassed a pile; But asked to help the needy he would close his fists and say: 'Oh, no; I must put by. You see, I fear a rainy day.' The years went on. His fortunes grew, and he grew old apace, But nothing, nothing would he do to -no no ucugxit uio He starved himself, lie froze himself, grew prematurely grey, While still he hoarded high his pelf against that rainy day. It came at last. A cloudburst broke upon his mansion great, The torrents did completely soak this stingy reprobate. He tried to swim, but soon he sank. Too late the servants found him. His eyes were closed, his hair was dank. His rainy day had drowned him. The moral? It's absurdly plain, and anyone can find it — Don't spend your life in fear o£ rain, and if it comes don't mind it. Just try to do a little' good and help _the needy fella. For charity, if rain it should, you'll find a fine umbrella.

OBEYING ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

OBEYING ORDERS. This amusing story of the American Civil War shows how orders may be obeyed in the letter and disregarded in the spirit to great advantage. The Confederates had been making themselves troublesome along our left wing (began a veteran, recalling an incident of the Civil War for the amusement of his grandchildren and tneir young guests), and orders went forth to push our picket-line farther down in their direction. 'And mind now, boys,' said the com. mander of the guard sternly, 'private property and live stock are not to be disturbed. No marauding, no forag ing, no robbery; but permit nothing and nobody to pass the lines that can't give the countersign.' With throe days' rations in haver sacks a few hundred men, including an accomplished colored cook, marched to perform this service. At midnight on the second night the cook, whose name was Sambo, and a comrade were on picket duty when they suddenly heard a soft step. 'Halt!' shouted the picket. 'Who go dar?' added the ...

"DELIGHTFUL POISON." How Wine Happened to Have That Name Given It in Persia. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

'DELIGHTFUL POISON.' How Wine Happened to Have That Name Given It in Persia. The making of wine is said to have originated with the Persians, who' dis covered the process quite by acci dent. One of their earliest kings, Jensheed, who, it is. said, was only five or six generations from Noah, was the discoverer — or, rather, a woman of his household was. 'He was immoderately fond of grapes,' says the narrative, which is found in Sir John Malcolm's ''History some, which were placed in a large vessel and lodged in a vault for future use. When the vessel was opened the grapes had fermented, and their juice in this state was so acid that the King believed it must be poisonous. 'He had some vessels filled with it and 'Poison' written upon each. These were placed in his room. It happened that one of his favorite ladies was af fected with nervous headache; the pain distracted her so much that she desired death. Observing a vessel with 'Poison' written on it, she took ft and swallowed its con...

AN HEROIC DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

AN HEROIC DOCTOR. Doctor Franz Mueller, of Vienna, who fell a victim to the bubonic plague when that disease was first un der bacteriological investigation in that city in 1897, contracted the mal ady from bacilli in culture tubes. When he became certain that he was infect ed, hei immediately locked himself in an isolated room and pasted a mess age on a window-pane':— 'I. am suffer ing from the plague. Please do not send a doctor to me, as m event my end will come in four or five days.' At once a number of his associates — all of them young physicians, with much to live for and with full know ledge of the chances to which they would expose themselves — stepped for. ward and not only offered their ser . vices, but in some cases begged to be sent to Doctor Mueller. The patient refused to permit it, and died alone within the time predicted. At the end he wrote a farewell let ter to his parents and placed it against the window, so that it could be copied from the outside, and then burne...

"YESTERDAY." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

'YESTERDAY.' By Katherine Rush. Petals dead, like the dreams we had; Petals that wilted away; And I look at them and they look at me, ~ And we' both say, 'Yesterday.' Petals dead, like the hopes we had, Petals once rosy with dew; And I look at them and they look at me, And 'hntti nf us whienor 'Vnn ' Petals that clung to a rosebud once, Like the rosebud that bloomed for us; And I look at them and they look at me, And we both say, 'Even thus.' Petals that fall, like the castles we built— Castles that never could last; And I look at them and they look at me, And we both of us say, 'It is past.' L'ENVOI. But roses are grown with each wind that is blown, And their scent will cover the past; Of the castles we built and the dreams we dreamed, And the petals that could not last.

THE RING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

I The Ring. Langford told the M.L. reporters that referee Eugene Corri should have de clared his last fight with McVea a win instead of a draw, and that on Boxing Day he propo&esto completely exterminate the Pride of Paris. The j odds are that, far from exterminating I McVea, Langford will get licked on the 26th. Consider the circumstances, j Langford depends for success mainly on his amazing punch and bis ca pacity to stand still and take punish ment. (He has a theory for hitting purposes alone, and, accordingly, he does not even attempt to take punches on the gloves or arms ) In Paris the two Champions fought in a small, primitive ring, with small, primitive gloves. On Boxing Day they will battle in a 20ft enclosure, floor-covered and padded as to the supports which hold the ropes. And they will use big gloves. Obiviously, the change will be all in McVea's favor. If Langford couldn't put McVea out with the punishing little gloves that are used abroad, he is unlikely to dam...

TO KEEP IN GOOD FETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

TO KEEP IN GOOD FETTLE. A rusty engine, a boat covered with barnacles, a rickety plough, a cranky windmill, a creaky waterwheel, each of these illustrates the condition of a mind that is not kept in order. It is impossible to get a fair amount of work out of either of them. Irregular action always indicates disorder or disease. You cannot re ly upon a pump that will sometimes uring water ana sometimes not. A man who works only when he feels like it is apt after awhile to give up working altogether. Those who accomplish much do it by keeping their minds and bodies in good condition. Whatever task is faithfully perform ed at the appointed time, however hard it may have been at first, soon becomes comparatively easy, if not positively agreeable'. Want of thoroughness is charged upon our age as one of its peculiar defects. We are in a desperate hurry, and this leads us to slight our work. We are introducing labor-saving pro cesses into the region of mind; when the labor itself, as a dis...

An Accusing Past. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

An Accusing Past. * By H. J. Bickle. Over the arid bushland a man rode as if in. desperate flight from some nameless peril, from which only the speed of his horse could save him. And yet no pursuing enemy was vis . ible, nor did sand-storm or bush-fire threaten. His eyes were strained ahead, not once did he glance backward, or he might have seen, diminishing with the . distflnpo thnf romnvpfl him frnm if a tiny speck that represented a human form, a man's body, stretched out be . neath the scorching glare of the sun, his feeble fingers clutching the air with nervous, useless movements, his voice now faintly raised in delirium, . now whimpering pitifully, his physical strength slowly departing, his life fast ebbing. He sank back at last, with livid face and eyes that seemed already ' glazing, only to start forward when - presently there fell upon his quickly fading senses, which the sound had aroused, the thud of hoofs.
