They may run over 100yds, 120yds, and 130yds — and it will want some picking. Major A. A,.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

Those people who were in the vi cinity of Spencer- street station on Wednesday morning must have im agined themselves Gullivers amona the Lilliputians when there stalked along the platform -a party of minia ture men and women, the tallest 38 inches, the shortest 30 inches high. These midgets form the circus com pany of Tiny Town.„ They are per fectly formed mortals, differing from normal sized beiugs in stature only. Their ages vary between demnre 21 and portly 56. Their attire is fashion able, and they cirry themselves with a dignity that ceases to be ludicrous wheu one has conversed with them and realised their conversational powers arid aptitude for gripping any subject that happens to be touched on. Two of the tiniest ladies, Misses Poala and Anita, are sisters. Each is 30 inches high, and the ordinary .chair is useless at meals. Standing by the dinner table, Anita's blonde head just reaches the level of the soup spoon. Hayati Hassid, a sprightly young Turk of 56, is 30 inches h...

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

Lecture. Professor Adam, of Ormond Col lege, Melbourne, addressed a well attended meeting of the Stratford Shakespeare Society ou Wednesday evening, 6th inst. The subject of his paper was Macbeth.' After touch ing on the date of the play and the sources from which Shakespeare drew his information, the speaker pointed out that these sources were not accurate. As a matter of history Duncan was murdered not in a castle, but in a bothy, and if Macbeth had any part in it he was only an access ory and not the actual murderer. The play was written during the reign of James 1. and acted in his presence, as several allusions in the play tend to show. This also accounts I for the favourable treatment, by the author, of the character of Banquo, who was supposed to be an ancestor of King James. The speaker next touched on the irony manifested in the play — the ironical fulfilment of the witches' prophecies, and the pleasure shown by Duncan when he sees the castle where he is to be murdered — th...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

Correspondence. To TIIK Editok. Sib, — The question : ' Why has the march of progress been so slow i'h Stratford P ' appears to be causing some little controversy at present, and with- your permission, 1 would like to state one or two reasons that seem to my mind to have something to do with the matter at issue. What is wanted in rmr t.own is Knmotliinnr on the lines of a ' Buy in Stratford League.' Many of the peop'e who have so much to say about the want of life and energy in our little town ship are the ones that transact most ot. their business elsewhere. A great number . obtain most of their stores from Sale or Melbourne, and what ready cash they have goes into the pockets of the merchants iu those places instead of helping along those who. have been enterprising enough to start business in Stratford. In time of adversity, when cash is a scarce® commodity, they are ready euough to -patronise the local man, and expect to obtain unlimited credit. What he is going to do while he i...

SCIENTIFIC KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

SCIENTIFIC KINDNESS^ To give a cup of water to strangers at your door, whose limbs can only totter, whose feet are tired and sore — that is a kindly action whose mem ory will live and bring you satisfac tion and lasting comfort give. Such little acts will cheer us and soothe our aches and smarts and bring the angels near us and lighten heavy hearts. To give a cup of water and brishten un the dav for some lost, son or daughter whose home is far away! But first we ought to boil it or see that it's distilled, for deadly germs may soil it, and germs have often kill ed. The wise old boys who potter with scientific terms say that a cup of water will hold ten billion germs; and if these germs you swallow when feeling hot and dry of course it's bound to follow that you'll curl up and die. So when you see a stranger who's feeling on the blink you won't forget the danger of giving him a drink. While for a drink he's squirm in', and while his plea he makes, just hand him out a sermon on germs ...

How to Keep Young. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

How to Keep Young. The woman who wants to keep young-looking and to feel young should avoid worry and hurry and letting flustered. She should learn self-control, for anger is a rapid wrinkle bringer. She should be temperate in all fhincrc: fnr nvAVflniner in anv WAV makes for premature age. She should live as much as possible in fresh air surroundings, for plenty of freslrair is a necessity if one would keep young. She should take a sufficiency of rest and sleep. . She should keep mentally alert, for an active mind helps the heart to keep young. In the Arctic regions human food is almost exclusively animal, because that is the only sort which is available in quantity. In the tropics, where vege table food is abundant and animal foods readily decay, plant products are and always have been of very great importance in the diet. In temperate regions all kinds of food may be se cured, and it seems reasonable to sup pose that all kinds have always been eaten as they are to-day.

KEEP STIRRING THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

KEEP STIRRING THE SOIL. The refuse of plant and animal re mains cannot be used by plants until it is transformed into a soluble con dition. This latter work is accom plished by several classes of bacteria. One class ferments and decomposes the refuse, forming ammonia; another class attacks the ammonia and forms it into nitric acid. The nitric acid unites with certain mineral constitu ents in the soil to form nitrates. Ni trates are available as food for green plants. . The whole process of the formation of nitrates out of manures is called nitrification, and the bacteria produ cing the change must have the con ditions necessary for their growth, such as .plenty of moisture, proper temperature, and good aeration. The process of cultivation, which stirs the soil, gives these conditions. Cultivation, therefore, assists in do ing more than the conservation of moisture; it reaches farther and deep, er in that is requisite in order to give the 'nitrifiers' opportunity to produce an availa...

Smoking Her Out. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 December 1911

Smoking Her Out. A company of Edinburgh students were starting for Glasgow on a foot ball excursion, and meant to have a carriage to themselves. At the last moment, however, just as the train^ was starting, in hastened an old wo man. One of the young fellows, thinking IU gtJL 1 IU Vi. uci caouj, icuiftiAcu, 'My good woman, this is a smoking car, don't you know?' 'Well, well,' answered the woman, 'never mind, I'll mak' it dae.' And she took a seat. As the train started, the word was passed round, 'Smoke her out.' All the windows were closed accordingly, every student produced a pipe, and soon the car was filled with a dense . cloud of tobacco smoke. So foul was the air that at last one of the boys be gan to feel ill. As he took his pipe from his mouth and settled back Into his seat, the old woman leaned for ward to him. 'If ye are dune, sir,' she said in a wheedling tone, 'wad ye kindlygie me a bit of a draw? I came awa' in six a haste I forgot mine.' Most people are acquainted with ...

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

THE AVIATOR. I saw the aviator soar far in the windswept void, and said, 'He really ought to be more usefully employed. He's apt to fall a hundred miles should pinions break or bend, and while such things amuse the crowd, they're serv ing no good end. Some day he'll break his swan-like neck while painting cloudland red, and if he's useless when alive, he's more so when he's dead. I have no wisn to soar alort ana nae the sweeping gale; I'll keep on raising paddock hay, and sell it, bale by bale. The man who makes two bales of hay come forth where one has grown, contributes to the public good and earns a half-a-bone.' 'The man who flies,' my neighbor said, 'will gather in more dough than you will get for all the hay from here to Jericho. And though his airship often sails above a field of wrecks, he entertains a jaded world — a world of rubbernecks. Some people think,' my neighbor said, 'that no one's doing good, unless he's growing bales of hay and other break fast food; but any man ...

CHARCOAL FOR YOUNG CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

CHARCOAL FOR YOUNG CHICKENS. There is nothing better for bowel troubles in little chicks than freshly burned charcoal. The charcoal grains are also excellent, and are said to be efficacious in roup. The greatest pro blem with little chicks in brooders is bowel trouble, which arises from sev eral causes — chilling, too mifch heat, crowding, lack ot exercise, ana a wrong diet. If charcoal is pulverised every day and mixed with the food the bowel trouble quickly disappears, provided other faults are remedied. Charcoal is a corrective and not a medicine. It absorbs gases and pro motes digestion of the food. It is most efficacious when freshly pre pared, for when allowed to stand it absorbs odors and gases from the at mosphere which partially destroy its healthful qualities. It may be fed in any quantity, for the fowls will not use too much of it, but for larger birds it should be placed in boxes and put where they may have access to it. Of course, it must be renewed often if used in thi...

RED HAIR. Our Contributor Stands Up for the Men and Women with Flaming Locks. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

RED HAIR. Our Contributor Stands Up for the Men and Women with Flaming Locks. Altogether, red-haired people are having a hard time of it. This is hardly fair, because all the people who have made their influence most felt in the world have been ginger, and with out a doubt, the red-haired boy or girl of the present day has a better chance of being famous than one whose locks are. not flaming. Red hair is a proof of character. It is an indication of ambition, passion, and will-power, and it is quite time people stopped jestng about it, and gave it the reverence it deserves. Let us look at the proof. Shakespeare ought to be a good enough man to begin with, and one to whom few Englishmen will deny the title of great. Considering how little we really do know about our greatest poet, it is rather surprising that the one salient fact — he had red hair — has come down to posterity. Talking of Shakespeare brings us to Bernard Shaw, who also has red hair. Mr. Shaw's exact position in the wor...

The Doctor's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

The Doctor's Revenge. It is always a pleasure to hear or read of arrogance Tebuked, hence is added this little tale: — An elderly lady whose characteris tics entitle her to the present name of Mrs. Portly Pompous had a pet mon key which suddenly became ill. She had the assurance to send for a prom inent physician to treat 'the little beast. When the doctor was introduced to his patient he was very much en raged, but he did not betray himself. He took the sick monkey's pulse and asked the usual questions. Now in the room was a little boy, Mrs. Portly Pompous's grandson. The doctor approached the boy, examined his pulse also, and then said solemn ly to the lady: 'Madam, your two little grandchil dren are suffering from indigestion. Give them only light food, with plenty of exercise, and they will come out all right.'
