Boisdale. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 December 1911
Boisdale. From our own correspondent). Deep sympathy is felt for Mr Slade in his recent sad bereavement. Mrs Slade contracted pneumonia, and was taken to the Sale Hospital on Thurs - day week, where she died on Satur day last, leading a baby five weeks old. At the same time Mr Slade and his little son, Archie, were both in the hospital, Mr Slade suffering from diphtheria, and Archie from menin gitis.

MOST FREQUENT DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912
| MOST FREQUENT DREAMS. Mr. H. G. Hutchinson has made a classification of v the commonest dreams, and his list seems to be fairly complete. He says there are seven that may be called common kinds of dreams: — 1. The falling dream — you are fall ing over a precipice or down the stairs. 2. The flying dream — the dream that you can fly. 3. The dream of more or less inade quate clothing — that, you are not pro perly clothed. 4. The dream of not being able to get away from some beast, or injurious person or thing, that is pursuing vou. 5. The dream of being drawn irre sistibly to some dangerous place, such as a lire. 6. The dream that some darling wish has been gratified. 7. The dream of being about to go on a journey, and being unable to get your things into your trunks, etc. But, as he adds. ' no doubt then are ? great many more.'

THE AGE OF WONDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912
THE AGE OF W0NDE89. This is an age of wonders, and yet we have all ceased to wonder at any thing ! This is no doubt why the most marvellous scientific discoveries are received without any feeling: of wonder. We never now refer to elec tricity as ' a wonderful discovery — and only in its infancy!' It certainly is a precocious infant at any rate. The announcement mat marcom uaa ju&i passed a wireless message across the Atlantic is received without any ex citement. An evening paper says if Marcon: had invented a method of pre cipitating himself instead of his mes sage across the Atlantic, our m?ideL aunt would simply have said : ' Well ' well I what will they do next?'
