Progress Asso. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
Progress As so. — — . ▼ ? A meeting of I he local Progress. Association was held on Wednesday evening when there were about 2(t members present, Mr. R. Dunstan, president, occupying the chair. correspondence. From Victorian Railways, s fa ting that the matter of supplying water ta the local trucking yards was ander consideration. — Received. From same, stating that the nighfc train from Trnralgou was run on to Sale to suit the convenience of people who desired to visit places down the line and return to Sale the same day. Tkey therefore could not grant the request of the Association that, the train should remain all night Stratford. Mr. T. Poole considered that Strat ford was not being fairly treated by the Department. If they were con tent to sit back and take ' No ' for an answer they would get nothing done. If the night train stopped here it; would mean several families living in the town, and there were also other matters which required seeing into. Mr. Chandler moved that a dep...
The Awakening. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
The Awakening. The meanest man on earth has just been found. His mind had been wan dering with fever for three weeks, and when he came back to his senses and opened his eyes he saw a fair face under a white cap bending over his pillow. 'Who — who are you?' he gasped. 'I'm the trained nurse.' 'The trained nurse! Oh, good gra cious! And how much am I paying you?' She told him, and he turned his head, groaning in the soreness of his affliction. A few moments later, though, his face lit up with a flash of hope. 'But I'm back in my right mind now, ain't I?' 'Why, yes; I think you are.' - 'All right, then,' with fierce exul tation, 'I give you notice to leave to night!'
A Reward Episode. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
A Reward Episode. ? ♦ ? At the meeting of the Avon Shire Council on Monday, after the minutes of the previous meeting had heen read, Councillor Carter said there was a mat ter he would like to mention. At the last meeting of the Council Councillor Hall complained of some person or per sons stripping two wattle trees on the road, and asked that a reward of £5 be offered for the conviction of the offen der. He (Cr. Carter) had since learnt that Cr. Hall had given permission to a certain person to strip one of the wattle trees in question, but the person to whom, permission had been given was ! not the one who did strip the trees. It appeared to be a most remarkable thing for a councillor to give one man per mission to strip a tree and then ask that a reward be offered for information relative to the matter. The President said that as Cr. Hall was not present the matter could stand over. - After the lunch adjournment Cr, Hall took his seat, and the matter was brought up by the Presiden...
Diamond Cut Diamond. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
Diamond Cut Diamond. A long way from home, and the rain pouring down, with no umbrella, Isaac Cohen was in a terrible way. But suddenly it struck him that he might get shelter and a cheap meal, too, from an old friend, one Kressler, a German, who lived in the neighbor hood. So, after a little searching, he found his friend's house, and gave the door bell a manful pull. Presently he was face to face with Kresslpr himself, who evidently was none too pleased to see him. Being conducted into the dining-room, where eight little Kresslers were seatea around Hie table, he was bade to take a seat and have a little dinner. Isaac rubbed his hands, and quietly smiled. He was in luck! After an enjoyable meal, and the rain had stopped, he rose from his seat, and, turning to friend Kressler, said: 'Ah, my dear friend Kressler, I vish to tank you for your ? ' 'Don't mention it, mine friendt,' interrupted Kressler, slily; 'shust gives the kids a shillings each!'
To Square Both. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
To Square Both. Smith was met one evening with a box of chocolates under one arm, and a big parcel of beefsteak under the other. 'Hello, Smith!' said Brown, 'going in for housekeeping? I didn't know you were married.' 'I am not, yet.' 'What are you doing with that chocolate and meat?' 'Going to see my girl.' 'Do you furnish the house with meat already?' 'Oh, no; the chocolate is a present for the girl, and the meat Ts for the dog. I have to square -myself with both of them.'
No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 December 1911
The ethics of local' Government, as contrasted with practice, are worthy of some consideration. It may be taken for granted that municipal officers carry out to the best of their ability the instructions laid down at council meetings in a fair and equit- able spirit, ratepayers are exacting &nbsp; and have their opinions, and often very decided ones, as to the manner in which municipal office duties should be carried out and are not backward in expressing such, although they may be lacking in knowledge requisite to formulate their ideas. Crudeness in assertion does not recom- mend itself to the earnest consider- ation of men, hence obloqy and contumely are the reward of officers who endeavour to act with conscient- iousness and equity to both councillors and ratepayers who employ them. It must, however, be admitted that on many important matters coming before mnuicipal councillors, they themselves are not a happy family and very divergent views exist. This is certain to be s...

A Christmas Repentance [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 December 1911
A Christmas Repentance j The prospects of a Merry Christ mas at the Tollamoore homestead in Canterbury were far from bright. The owner, Mr. Theophilus Bunying, and two young hearts were well nigh breaking. Life had become grey and dreary to Bunying's only and mother less daughter, Rose, and her lover, Jack Roland, was in the depths of black despair. For the old man had emphatically, even violently, shatter-, ed their dream, put an end to their love-making and peremptorily ordered Jack off the station. Jack was pack ing mournfully; Rose was weeping bitterly, and, as he rode from the house Mr. Bunying was cursing with great vehemence. For Jack Roland had dared to ask for the hand of Rose in marriage, and he was only the station storekeeper. 'The impudent young jacknapes,' muttered Mr. Bunying in a fierce so liloquy, as he rode along, pressing his very much surprised steed into a pace considerably beyond its usual com fortable rate of progress. 'To think that is the return I get for my...

Dear Santa Claus, my mother she Says what she wishes you'd bring me On Christmas is a heart that's kind And — a'nd — oh, yes, the wish to mind, And happy smiles for every day And goodness that won't wear away.

MONEY AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 December 1911
? u MONEY AND MARRIAGE^ ^ The thriftiness of the people has ' ever been a thorn in the side of econ ' omists, and the question of the poor man's purse has been considerably ! exercising the minds of politicians. Recently a well-known doctor spoke strongly against the extravagance of the working classes, and a judge said the other day that 'youths are not fit to have money at their command.' There can be no doubt that it is the young who are most to be blamed in this matter. Few of them, whether they be the sons of professional men or of laborers, take any real care of their money; and the consequence is that not many of them have the means to marry when the right girl comes along. A young fellow who was earning good money spent most of his income in fleeting amusements, and absolute ly frittered away the cash which he should have put by for the inevitable rainy day. He used to tell his friends that it was of no use for him to save, as he always intended to remain a bachelor, and the...
A CHRISTMAS EPISODE MY LAST BURGLARY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 December 1911
A CHRISTMAS EPISODE MY LAST BURGLARY. . By S. Mason. Up to Christmas Eve of last year I j was recognised as a first-class burglar, but on that night I met with a painful adventure, which I- will describe for the benefit of any of my fraternity who may wish to follow my example. I had removed a pane of. glass -from the kitchen window of a mansion in a fashionable neighborhood. Then I turned back the catch, raised the win dow, and entered the house, without taking the trouble to send up my card. There, in the darkness, I adjusted my mask, lighted my lantern, and started to make a tour of the premises. I was not long in finding a quantity of things which I :desired to possess. I immediately began gathering them up, preparatory to carrying them away. While I was standing on tip toe in order to reach the top shelf of the china cupboard something remark able happened. Somebody behind me spoke. It was a man. 'George, here's Santa Claus!' he said.' I turned about and felt for my re VOivsf:'...

Resourceful. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 December 1911
Resourceful. 'Every man can find work if he uses his brains,' asserted a man who. had travelled a good deal. 'That is, if he has the- ability to adapt himself, like the piano-tuner I once met out West in America. 'Why,' I said to him, for we were in a wild, unsettled coun try, 'surely piano-tuning can't be very lucrative here. I shouldn't imagine that - pianos were very plentiful in this region.' 'No, sir, they're not,' said the piano-tuner; 'but I make a pretty fair income by tightening up barbed wire fences I
