RAPE AND LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

RAPE AND LUCERNE. After the recent rains crop3 may be largely sown. But before sowing the laud should be brought to a very fine tilth, for the seed being so small it will not readily germinate unless the land is very finely prepared. River flats are generally found the most suitable land to sow lucer/ie upon. But the best way to find out whether a certain part of the farm will grow iucerne or not, is to give it a trial, that is for a period of say three or four years through botb jood and bad seasons, and if it con tinues to grow equally as well tnrougn nut the seasons of drought, then vov know '.that suitable land ha- boei s'lectui?: but if not, the soil is not suit able and it is best to plough it ur- ai once, for it is unprofitable to keep la'id under lucerno whereon it will ouly g o during the rainy season.

ADMIRAL PETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

ADMIRAL PETERS. By W. W. Jacobs. '* Mr. George Burton, naval pen , sioner, sat at the door of his lodgings gazing in placid content at the sea. It was early summer, and the air was heavy with the scent of flowers ; Mr. Burton's pipe was cold and empty, and his pouch upstairs. He shook his . head gently as he realised this, and, yielding to the drowsy quiet of his surroundings, laid aside the useless pipe and fell into a doze. He was awakened half-an-hour later by the sound of footsteps. A tall, strongly-built man was approaching from the direction of the town, ana Mr. Burton, as he gazed at him sleep ily, began to wonder where he had seen him before. Even when the stranger stopped and stood smiling down at him his memory proved un equal to the occasion, and he sat star ing at the handsome, shaven face, with its little fringe of grey whisker, waiting for enlightenment. 'George, my buck,' said the stran ger, giving him a hearty slap on the shoulder, 'how goes it?' 'D ? . Bless my eyes...

FRIENDS ASTER A SIGHT. A fine Newfoundland dog and a mas tiff had a quarrel over a bone, or some other trifling matter. They were fight ing on » bridge, and being blind with rage, as is often the case, over they went into the water. The banks were so high that they were forced to swim some distance before : they came to a landing-place. It was - very easy for the Newfoundland dog, Be wa3 as much at home in the water a» s seal.

He saw plainly, that hi? btrength was fast failing, and that he was likely to drown. So what should he do but plunge in, seize him gently by the collar., and then, keeping his nose above water, tow him safely into port.

A CHILDREN'S "PINK AND WHITE" PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

A CHILDREN'S 'PINK AND ' WHITE' PARTY. Last Christmas we decided to give a really good children's party, and so called together a 'family council'' to discuss the weighty matter and see if- we could think of anything quite 1 novel. The result was that we deci ded to go in for a 'pink and white' party, which when pver.. we all voted a great success, and / which r think you may be interested to hear- about. The invitations were, sent out on tiny pink cards in envelopes to match. The table was daintily decorated with, pink , crinkled -paper ?cut -in strips and laid from the centre - to the sides of the tablcv Ours was a -round table, and lent itself, particularly well to this arrangement. , . ' Instead of using ordinary linen d'oy: leys for the plates of cake and bread and .butter, we used pink and white Japanese paper serviettes, and each little guest was provided with, one for use. . This we found a great boon in saving the pretty frocks from getting soiled.' ? -? The Christmas cake,...

THE MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

THE MAID. Thunder of riotous hoofs over the quaking sod; Clash of reeking squadrons, steel capped, iron-shod; The White Maid, and the white horse, and the flapping banner of God. Black hearts riding for money; red hearts riding for fame; The Maid who rides for France and the king who rides for shame; Gentlemen, fools, and a saint riding in . Christ's high name. Dust to dust, it is written! Wind soattered are lance and bow! Dust, the Cross of St. George; dust, the banner of snow! The bones of the king are crumbled and rotted the shafts of the foe. Forgotten the young knights' valor; forgotten the captains' skill; Forgotten . the fear and the hate and the mailed hands raised to kill; Forgotten the shields that clashed and the arrows that cried so shrill. ? ? Like a story from some old book, that battle of long ago. ... Shadows, the poor French king and the might of his English foe; Shadows, the charging nobles and the archers kneeling a-row; But, aflame in my heart and my eyes, the Ma...

KNEW THE LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

KNEW THE LAW. If women ever come to sit on the bench in old Virginia, there's a maiden lady living on her ancestral acres just across the Potamac from Washington who can qualify for the job. Recently an estate company bought a tract of land the other side of the property and cut it up into suburban lots. Desiring ready access to the capital, they instituted proceedings to run a public road through the old lady's land; worse, as she learned, the projected road would cut right through the prettiest part of her trim lawn, dear with its memories of her child hood. She consulted her lawyer, only to be told that there was no help for it, since private property may, under the -law, be acquired for public use, no matter how unwilling an indignant owner may be. Far from resigning herself to the ruthless inroad on her cherished lawn, the old lady buried herself in the musty law-library handed down from an ancient ancestor, „ once a prominent judge in the old dominion. When, some days later, a...

TO HIM WHO WAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 January 1912

TO HIM WHO WAITS. Many a castle I've built in Spain, With turrets and domes that were .. passing fair, But the first wild storm of wind and rain Has proved my castles were made of air. Many a fleet I've sent to sea, Freighted with hopes and ambitions bright; Never a ship has come back to me Though I've watched for* them long by day and night. But I sometimes think there will come a day » When my heart's fond wishes I . shall attain, When, walled and towered in grand , array, Shall stand secure my castles in j ? Spain-- ? ..... ? ? 1 And i look to see the sunset's glow, As it reddens the ocean miles and miles, Shine on the ships that sailed long ago— ? My ships coming back from the Fortunate Isles. —Edith S. Tupper. A German anti-alcoholic journal, 'Der Guttemplar,' relates that two Germans who were crossing the Lux embourg frontier declared to the Cus toms officials: 'We have' with us three bottles of red wine each. How much is there to pay?' * 'Where is it?' asked one. 'Well, insid...

HOW TO GET RICH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

HOW TO GET RICH. Mary had a little land, The soil was very poor; But still she kept it on her hand, And struggled to get more. She held her land until the day The people settled down: Till where a wilderness had been Grew up a thriving town. Then Mary rented out her plot (.sne wouia not, sen you Know), But waited patiently about For prices still to grow. They grew as population came, And Mary raised the rent; With common food ' and raiment now She would not be content. She raised the rent some more. Had luxuries galore; But every time the people came She raised tre rent some more. 'What makes the land keep Mary so?' The common people cry. 'Why, Mary owns the land, you know,' The knowing ones reply. And so each one of you might be — Wealthy, refined, and wise — If you had only owned some land, And 'waited for the rise.'

THE TALE OF A HAT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

THE TALE OF A HAT. The Earl of Kinsale, whose family name is De Courcy, is the only noble man privileged to wear his hat in the presence of his Sovereign. About seven hundred years ago Philip II. of France summoned - King John of England to combat for the murder of Prince Arthur. As John did not feel inclined to accept the challenge in person, a gallant soldier named De Courcy, then languishing in prison, was released, that he might be the one to undertake the combat. The fight, however, never took place, as the French King's champion, afraid of the powerful-looking De Courcy, preferred rather to lose honor than life. Being urged by the two kins, who had come to witness the expected en counter, to give them an exhibition of his strength, De Courcy 'placed his helmet 'on. a post and close it with such tremendous force that his sword was so firmly wedged in the wood beneath that only the striker himself could withdraw it. 'Never again,' exclaimed the de lighted King John, 'unveil thy ...

MEN MORE EMOTIONAL THAN WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

MEN MORE EMOTIONAL THAN WOMEN. By a Nerve Specialist. Men are by nature more emotional than women. Only by centuries of training and hard fighting have they acquired the power of suppressing their emotions and resisting the. de sire to have a 'good cry' or go into hysterics. In the beginning of the world men became the sterner sex simply be cause thev Wfirp st.vrmefvr than wn men and were physically better adapt ed for fighting. Women are not constitutionally so emotional as men. They occasionally 'give way' to their feelings because they consider it is their privilege to do so. The old-established opinion that women are more emotional than men is really a fallacy. Men are more in clined to shriek and become hysteri cal during exciting, trying times than the 'gentler' sex. Women have the reputation of 'losing their heads' in emotional crises, but this is quite a mistaken idea. In sudden emergencies, sudden illness and real danger women al ways shine. Men have not that natural and in...

THE SCHOOL GIRL. Thoughts for Everyday Use. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

THE SCHOOL GIRL. Thoughts for Everyday Use. You are building each moment of your life a house of life and thought; and you are building it not entirely for yourself but as a part of the won derful whole structure of human liv ing. Your house may be almost as you will it. if you work hard enough. It may be large and airy and noble and beautiful— a shelter and an in spiration to all who enter it ani' learn your purposes and reap the benefit of your secret thoughts. But it may be stuffy and miserable and little and ugly -and dark, so that later others, better than you, may have to destroy it and sweep it out of sigtyt. Build a beautiful house, then. Set it on an eminence and build it as big and airy and noble as you can. One great poet, Goethe, said that in order to lead a rational life one must read a great poem, - see a great pic ture, and hear a great song, daily. ' That is the best counsel for daily living that I know. Great painting and sculpture are not always to hand for all of ...

HOW GOLD RINGS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

HOW GOLD RINGS ARE MADE. Gold rings are made from bars nine or fifteen inches long. A bar fifteen inches Jong, about two inches wide and three-sixteenths of an inch thick would make 300 four-pennyweight rings. A dozen processes and twenty minutes' time are required to change the bar into merchantable rings. A. pair of shears cuts the bar into strips. By the turn of a wheel, one,, two or three times, the guillotine-like blade of the shears cuts the bar into slices one, two or three-sixteenths of an inch wide. A rolling machine presses out the strips and makes them fiat or grooved. Eacli strip is then put under the blowpipe and annealed. The oxide of copper copses to the sur face and is put into a pickle of sul phuric ^cid, the bit of gold is stamped with its quality and the name of the maker, and is put through a machine that bends it into the shape of a ring, the same making a ring of any size. The ends are soldered with an alloy of inferior fineness to the quality of the ring. Many...

THE HEALTHINESS OF HOUSEWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 January 1912

THE HEALTHINESS OF HOUSE ? WORK. Hundreds of women speak of the drudgery of housework; thousands of girls avoid it as they would the plague, and seek far harder employment in factories rather than become domestic servants. Yet there is more happiness to be obtained from the performance of housework than from most of the occupations that could be enumerated in ten minutes. How is that explain ed? In this way: You get more hap piness because it is such healthy . work, and health is surely the best ' form of felicity. | Other things being equal, the wo man who does her own housework is more free from the small but decided ly disagreeable health troubles than she who never touches a broom or a duster. The latter has more often to go to the expense of a stay in the country to recruit, or she must take more walking or cycling exercise — in short, she is frequently doing some thing to keep herself going and pre vent a period of illness. There is no manner of doubt that the woman who does h...
