FACTS ABOUT THE "FRAGRANT WEED." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 January 1912

FACTS ABOUT THE 'FRAGRANT WEED.' Tobacco was probably used in the form of cigars before it was burned in pipes, sniffed as snuff, or taken as a 'quid,' but on this point there is no proof. Two of Columbus's sailors on the first voyage reported that they had seen natives of the new-found world with firebrands in their mouths ... « . ? ? ? r ? ? A.U — ana witn smoue issuing iruiu men lips. It was found that these natives were smoking the dried leaves of a plant hitherto unknown to the Euro peans, and that these leaves were rolled in a corn shuck. During the second voyage of Col umbus natives of the West Indies were found who pulverised dry to bacco leaves and sniffed the powder up their noses. This practice was discovered by a Franciscan, a fellow voyager of Columbus. In the voyage of 1502, when Columbus reached the mainland of South America, natives were found who chewed the cured leaf of the tobacco plant. The use of the plant was subsequently found to be universal among the America...

FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

FRIENDSHIPS. If you prove a friend, there are friends for you Who will brighten your upward way. There are hearts that are tender and strong and true, If you seek them here to-day. But beware of the false friends who beguile, When your way lies through the sun. They will laugh and quaff, with allur ! ing smile, But they fail you, one by one. One by one, should misfortune come, Will they falter and fade away; For their hands grow cold and their j lips are dumb When they think it will not pay. Ah! then does the true friend prove his worth, With his strong arm to the end— If a glimpse of heaven be found on earth, 'Tis the smile of such a friend.

EMOTIONAL FRENCHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

EMOTIONAL FRENCHMEN. The difference between the charac ter of the rather unemotional Anglo Saxon race and the very emotional Frenchman is well shown by two stor ies which are told of M. Casimir-Perier, who was chosen President of France to succeed M. Sadi-Carnot. Hp is said to have resisted all entreaties to be a candidate until his mother was sent for, and M. Burdeau laid the case be fore her. She listened, and told him that having his story in mind, and, being inspired hy affection for her son, she declared to him that his grandfather, the great man of the family, -would have told him to stand. Thereupon she walked out of the room, and her son gave way to her wishes. It must be remembered that in France, not only in books, but in actual private life, the mother is a person even more sacred than elsewhere, and far more habitually looked up to as an authority by even middle-aged men, Such an appeal would not have been made here in Australia; but in France it is thought the most natu...

MARVELS OF INSECT-SIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

MARVELS OF INSECT-SIGHT. With respect to the vision of the insects forming the higher forms of that life the best authorities entertain two theories. One, the older view. Is that each lens forms a separate eye; and the other, a most recent conclu sion, is that insects see as in a mo saic, each lens forming part of the total picture. Now the older view is supported by the experiment of placing a thin slice of an eye under the microscope, when the image of any object reflected from the mirror is seen to be' transmitted through each of the hexagonal lenses. It is claimed that a rough model of an insect's eye may be had in the shape of a glass shade of the form of a half sphere, say about sixteen inches in diameter. Place the eye at the centre of the globe and paint on its surface the picture of the outer world as seen through it. Dividing this painting into squares by lines placed at intervals of one eighth of an inch, one will find, if he be of an investigative turn of mind, that ther...

WOMEN ARE BAD SHOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

WOMEN ARE BAD SHOTS. A message from New York to the 'Daily Express' stated that the first jury of women summoned to try a case in San Francisco had held that if a woman throws a stone that breaks a window that fact is evidence that she did not break the window in tentionally. Mrs. Minto accused Mrs. Rodey of breaking her window owing to spite. The evidence showed that Mrs. Rodey threw a stone and also that the window was broken. The women jurors then retired, and after a brief consultation returned a ver dice of not guilty. The forewoman explained to the court that the jury were only applying common sense to the case, and had unanimously con cluded that no woman could hit a given mark with a stone. She added that as the stone hurled by Mrs. Rodey smashed a window it was per fectly obvious to the jury that she was aiming at something else and that the stone struck the window accident ally. Mrs. Brown: I'm afraid to let you have a bicycle. Little Johnnie: Don't feci that way, ma. Even...

A Woman by the Wayside [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

A^Wtirrian by the Wayside By John Rankine. As the Hon. J. K. Walmont re sumed his seat in the House of Com mons there was a subdued murmur of applause. It was well deserved. The speech had been brilliant. Op ponents acknowledged it as freely as friends. After a few minutes Mr. Walmont rose and modestly quitted the cham ber. He was a handsome man of twenty-eight, and was member for Stronsdale. His lineage was ancient, his means were narrow. The younger son of a younger son, lie must win his way unaided. And he was win ning it. Meantime, he steered his way through a labyrinth of congratulating friends, but he had little, time tov spare. He was due to dine with Adam Berkson, the well-known mill owner. On his' way thither he review ed the position. He was no fool nor proudly vain, but he had put his best into his speech, tje had hoped for a .good Im pression. The signs that his hopes had been exceeded were undeniable and gratifying. In Whitehall the Government Whip overtook him. - -- ''...

A Mysterious "Disease." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

A Mysterious 'Disease.' During the past two years 11 horses and two head of cattle have been found dead in the .vicinity of a Reserve near Manson's bridge, Newry. At first little notice was taken, the owners thinking that natural causes had been the result, but the' continuance of fatalities led. to suspicion being roused that everything waa not all right. About a month ago a horse belonging to Mr. W. Richardson was found dead near the reserve and be informed Constable Steedman of the fact. The body was examined and they were ?quite satisfied that the horse had been shot, but the body was iu such an advanced stage of decomposition that it did not warrant farther pro cedure. On the morning of- the last Trar algon races, Messrs J. A. Manson and P, Burns were driving to the Ti namba station to catch the train and on passing the Reserve they noticed a yearling gelding of Mr. Manson's on the road and that it appeared to have something the matter with it. Next morning he was informed that...

'Post' on 15th November Harry Jackson and Peter M'Laren, of Australia, who say they are the world s champion, axemen, gave a public exhibition of tbeir skill this morning at Twenty-third Avenue and Racestreet. They felled with their axes a cottoon-wood tree 6'3in. in circumference in lmin. 39sec. Then they chopped the log into small sections, and had it piled on a lawn in less than six minates from the time they bagan work. A large crowd witnessed the test. The men are appearing at the Or pheum this week, giving a logchop ping contest on the stage. The re markable speed with which they cut through large sections of trees leads part of the audience to say that the wood is ' prepared' in some manner to make it cut easily. At nearly every performance they hew through a log S'Oin. in circumference in about Hmin. To convince many people who had spoken to them abont the matter that their speed is legitimate, Jackson a...

Notes from Various Sources. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 January 1912

Notes from Various Sources. When Tahmmy Burns fought John sou at Sydney Stadum, be delivered most of his attacks at the negro's head. This was suspected at the time to be a mistaken policy. Now word comes from the United States that a negro was Bhot in the head five times at a five-foot ranee, and the ballets, after flattening against his skull, dropped to the ground. In another case, a mule, which kicked a | negro on the head, broke its leg, .while the nigger received only a scalp wound. Now, what is the good of scattering one's fists on heads like those r The right place to hit a negro boxer is on the pibs. They are like chalk as compared with his top skeleton. The Tote showed in its brightest colors at the recent Auakland meet ing, when a new Maoriland record was splashed on the machine. In four days £176,908 was put through which, compared with the £94,791 of 1910 '11 season, and the £96,765 of the 1909-'10, is very good.. The investment on the Auckland Cup was £9547, a Maorilan...
