The Cotton Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

The Cotton Cure. In the glittering summer evening a pretty girl in white paced the promen. ade deck of a comfortable White Star liner. 'I perceive,' said a pale passenger, 'that you have = cotton in your ears. May I ask why?' She blushed and frowned. 'Yes, you may ask,' she said, 'if you don't mind, being impolite. But, impolite or not, I'll answer you. I have cotton in my ears to ward off sea-sickness.' The pale passenger gulped. 'You don't say so!' he cried, hopefully. 'Yes, I do say so. Many years ago a ship conveyed a cargo of deaf mutes from Boston to Liverpool, and not one of the deaf mutes got sea-sick. This caused the ship's doctor to put on his thinking-cap. He stuffed the ears of a sea-sick passenger with cotton, and the voyager, thus deafened, got right up from his sick bed and ate a seven-course dinner. Since that time it has been realised that the stomach nerves and the nerves of hearing are in sympathy, and by dulling the- hear ing of the sea-sick their illness in many...

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF WAR. Incredible as it may' appear, it seems that, except in the way of leaders, in telligence is of little value in .war; the army that can resist panic the longest is the victor. Even troops composed of men of proved individual courage will not be inaccessible to collective fear. The gladiators of Spartacus, in revolt, were put into full route by an army of soldiers of little individual courage, but of better organisation and leadership.- Joint re sponsibility and confidence are two essential factors for steadiness of troops in combat. For this reason it is better to put the picked men on the second line of battle rather than in front, in order to give confidence to those who are struggling directly with the enemy. Another important point is that troops must fight in the or ganisation they are used to in time of peace, each man in his habitual place and with his proper unit. Napoleon had this in mind when he said of his soldiers at Waterloo: 'They had not eaten so...

THE OMNISCIENCE OF MACAULAY [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

THE OMNISCIENCE OF MACAULAY In the earlier half of the last cen tury Elizabeth Lady Holland was the most conspicuous female figure, roy alty excepted, in the splendid society of London (writes John Fyvie in his book, 'Noble Dames and Notable Men of the Georgian Era'). Her dinners at Holland House were famous for brilliant- talk, which talk thp hnstpss herself controlled more or less de spotically. Moore confided to his diary that 'poets inclined to a plethora of vanity would find a dose of Lady Hol land now and then good for their com plaint!' But, apparently, even her ladyship's generalship was taxed to control the flow of Macaulay's learning. Before dinner, on one occasion, some men tion was made of the portraits of the Speakers in the Speaker's house, and the question was asked how far back they went. Macaulay said he was not sure, but certainly as far back as Sir Thomas More. 'Sir Thomas More?' said Lady Hoi. land. 'I did not know he had been speaKer. 'Oh, yes!' replied Macaulay...

TELEGRAMS. BRIAGOLONG RAILWAY. MELBOURNE, Thursday, 5 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

TELEGRAMS. BRIAGOLONG RAILWAY. (From our own correspondent). Melbourne, Thursday, 5 p.m. I At a deputation to day Commis sioner McLelland, in reply to Mr. McLachlan, M.L.A,, said that the passenger traffic on the Briagolong line would not warrant the running of a daily train. The goods traffic on the line had greatly expanded of late, and if the present increase continued it would probably be necessary to schedule a goods train one or two days a week in order to relieve the mixed train of the roadside work. It would not be possible to run a goods train at such a time as to afford a through connexion to or from Mel bourne, but the train would be avail able for local traffic. The develop ments on the line were being closely watched with a view to providing the extra service as soon as it was con sidered that such a course would be justified.

THE ONLY TREE IN SHETLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

THE ONLY TREE IN SHETLAND. Up a little lane of Lerwick's one street there is a garden. At least, it is an enclosed space. In the middle of this space there is a tree. It is not a very tall tree; you could, in fact, toss a biscuit over its branches, but still, it is a tree — the only tree in Shetland. And Shetland is proud of it. Children who are brought tor tne first time to see the wonders of one streeted Lerwick are shown this tree. This is not fiction. It is the only tree in Shetland. As there are no other trees in Shetland, there are no birds, except, of course, the seagulls, which you can number by the thousand. The rough and the smooth come in most lives; and it is well when the rough comes early, before the heart is too faint and the brain too tired to bear it. . _ . - ;

Boisdale. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

Boisdale. W ..I.. (From our own Correspondent.) There was a crowded house on Thursday evening to hear the play entitled ' A Breach of Promise Case' which was given by the beet thinners, in aid of the local tennis club. The costumes worn by the actors were ' chic ' and the acting was admirably done. Much of the success of the evenings entertainment was due to the energetic secretary, Mr Jefferies. The beet crops are looking much improved since the splendid rainfall during the week. 122 points were registered at the Boisdale Factory on Tuesday. A daily train will run through Boibdale from the 1 s b January and a station master has been appointed here. He is to commence duties in his new sphere on the 1 St.h inst. There has been a great deal of sickness here lately. Measles have been prevalent and two cases of dip theria have been reported.

"LYING LOW." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

'LYING LOW.' This is a most useful accomplish ment, and one to be practised fairly often. Let us 'lie low' when we find our friend is irritable and inclined to snap if teased with questions; let us lie still lower if she is in trouble, and* shows by her silence that she is one of those who must bear her griefs alone. Sympathy in such a case , only heals when it is unexpressed, and to say nothing is our best way of show ing it. Let us 'lie low,' too, when we feel irritable or cross ourselves, taking a quiet walk in the open air, or a long rest if this be possible. If we can't do this, we must gird ourselves for bat tle, determining that we will not be tempted by some small annoyance to be false to our highest ideals.

THE NAGGER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

THE NAGGER. 'You have come then?' She followed her speech with a sneering laugh, and gazed meaningly at the clock. Her husband put down his umbrella, and, hung up his bat and coat. He sighed like a man who has had a trying day. 'For goodness sake don't leave your wet gamp mere m tne stana, sne cried, snatching it up. 'Don't you know it ought to be openel out to dry?' 'Been working late,' he said, ignor ing her last remark. 'I'm weary. Got a headache.' He threw his cigarette towards the fire, but the aim was too weak. 'I'm sorry,' he added languidly, as she picked up the stump. 'Sorry, eh? Then why do it? Why do it? There you are! Now you're sitting on the clean chairs in your damp clothes. Gracious, what next?' He climbed upstairs to the bedroom and changed, the while his wife pre pared the evening meal. When he came down again he saw that her temper had moved her to tears. 'I suppose that you forgot to ring up the stores and give the order for me,' she said, bending down to take up...

GISSING THE SUPER [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911

GISSING THE SUPER By M. Cruize. 'Name?' The assistant manager, standing on the threshold of the stage-door, ran his appraising eye swiftly along the row of waiting men drawn up in line outside the suburban theatre. 'Gissing — Clifford Gissing.' 'Otherwise John Jones, I suppose,' sneered the assistant manager, sign ing him to step out from his position in that rank of seedy-garmented men. 'You'll complete the lot of 'extras.' Only eight wanted. Sorry, boys. Bet ter luck next week.' Turning rapidly on his heel, the young fellow motioned the selected group into the -theatre and gloomy stage, owning for sole illumination the flickering T-piece. 'Now then, boys, look lively, if you please,' cried the assistant manager at the conclusion of a verbal explana tion of what was expected at the .hands of the newly-engaged men. 'Ready? Mr. Vaubray, kindly give the cue.' 'Her Serene Highness the Heredi . r._tary Princess of Wissendorf.' 7**-^'— 3*aubreyr_ & lantern-jawed ' man, ut tered t...
