TENNYSON'S BEST COMPLIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
TENNYSON'S BEST COMPLX - MENT. Perhaps the best compliment that Tennyson ever received was one day, walking in Covent Garden, when he was suddenly stopped by a roughlook ing man, who held out his hand, and said; ' You're Mr. Tennyson. Look here, sir. here am I. I've been drunk for six days out of the seven, but if. you will shake me by the hand I'll never get drunk again I' A kitten understands that if he catches up with his tail his fun is | spoilt.

THE LONGEVITY OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
THE LONGEVITY OP BIRDS. The reason why birds live so much (nnger than quadrupeds is supposed _te be because they are provided with beaks instead of teeth. Teeth decaj and fall out, and then follows the grad ual break-up of the health of the ani mal, but the bird's beak remains , good condition. The longevity of th« oarrot,, even in a siaue oi capuvuy, « well-known. An ostrich lives aboui thirty years, a short life compared with that of the parrot, which is in some ways a far hardier bird. For instance* the parrot might, in a fight, break it* leg, and soon be mended up again j, but to the ostrich such an accident il fatal, for the leg breakt off, ju«t as ii it were o! chiua.

Pete had been captured when he was a cub, and been petted ever since; but he was kept chained to his post, and the children were warned by Captain Carroll, the genial commanuer of the ship, to admire his bearship at a safe distanoe, for contact with fcimanity had not by any means tem pered his natural ferocity.

THE QUIET LOVER'S PROPOSAL [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
ra£ QTJIET LOVER'S PROPOSAL Perhaps at no time does the quiet jver appear to such advantage as fhen he offers a proposal to the girl ?.e has honored with his attention. His former reserved behavior serves o throw up the declaration of his ove in a very rosy light, s'M the girl eels moie highly honored when he hoones to speak than if his enthusiasm lad been predominant ever since she lad looked upon him as a lover. Then a girl looks upon him as sin :ere, for when enthusiasm is too pre valent she is just a little suspicious if so great a display of amorous affec tion. The lover who is not too en thusiastic is usually trusted, and ove affairs are net really so often narked as failures, for, as he observe* orecision in other matters, so does he n the choosing of a sweetheart, a pro 3eeding, if somewhat unromantic, at 'east fraught with good and saticfao --?ry results.
HOW TO KEEP YOUTHFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
HOW TO KEEP YOUTHFUL. Youth depends to a great extent upon our ability to keep the blood and circulation in a healthy oondition. The best method of doing this may be briefly summarised as follows : ' Take plenty of exercise in the open air — pre- ferably in the country, away from the oity.' The best exercise is a long walk in the country, and the benent of such a walk is increased if only a very small quantity of fiuid and food be taken during the walk. A -good lunch for such a walk is a sandwich and an orange. * This walk in the open air not only enriches the blood with oxygen, but it strengthens the skin and nervous sys tem, and through this the .digestive system. . Great moderation in_the amount of food, and especially of flesh food, should be practised, particularly by old people. There is no longer any doubt, that moderate meat eating after the ' meridian of life ' is reached is oon ducive to longevity. Drink water and plenty of it after the age of forty years is reached.

A SALT BEARING PLANT. The following is an extract from s report of an interview a xepresentativj of the 'Brisbane Courier* liaxi last weel with Mr J.

Mr Bailey's book, 'The Queensland Flora,' describes the planl as Frankenia paueiflora. There are dif ferent varieties; but the variety found by our great botanist at the Georgina is said to be 'thickly, b...
POET'S LOVE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
^ | The story of Dftrite Gabriel Rossetti'i ove and courtship is being told again But i iB well worth repeating.

SHORTNESS OF BREATH [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
SHORTNESS: OF . BREATH. Respiration in health and under nor mal conditions of rest or moderate - exercise is an unconscious act, almost as much so as digestion or the beating of the heart, but it is; very easily dis turbed, even in health, and in certain diseases its disturbance is often one or tne most distressing symptoms. Tne short breath following violent exer tion, such as running or hill-climbing,-' is familiar to everyone. It is due to the increased call for oxygenation of the blood and the temporary inability of the heart to pump the blood in suffi cient volume through the lungs. When shortness of breath is brought about by moderate exercise or mental excitement, it is due to some abnormal condition, such as anaemia, obesity, a weak heart, or indigestion. This ten-, dency is relieved by attention to the weak point, whatever it may be, and a judicious system of exercises. Permanent shortness of breath, or dyspnoea, as it is technically called, is a more serious affair, and Is...
THE JUBILEE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
THE JUBILEE SHOW. ___ ? * ? The Jubilee Show of the North Gippsland Agricultura1 Society was held in the Society's Grounds, Sale, yesterday, and proved a brilliant success. The weather was favorable, a cool, pleasant breeze blowing, and the grounds were in sp'endid con dition. Tbe attendance was excep tionally large, and the sight presented . during the afternoon « must have gladdened the hearts of the officials who had worked hard to ensure suc cess. The exhibits were, both in number and quality, a record, and, we venture to say, could not be beaten on any show ground in the State. The dis play of machinery was particularly good, a large number of harvesters being on the. . ground, Messrs Mit chell and Co. exhibited a -Max milk ing machine in operation, and this proved tbe centre of attraction to a large crowd. Mr B. Cherry, of Sale, had a fine exhibit of windmills, from-, the midget mill to the giant. The entries in the draught horse class were numerous, and some hand some animals...
A Point Worth Noticing. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
A Point Worth Noticing. An old man who had given his son | I a very good education had taken him into his shop. The young fellow was inclined to be rather particular about many things, but the father made no comment. One day an order came in . from a customer. 'I wish to goodness.' exclaimed the son, 'that Gibson would learn to spell ! ' 'What's the matter?' inquired the father cheerfully. 'Why, he spells coffee with a 'k.' ' 'No— does he? I never noticed it.' 'Of course not!' said the ison pet tishly. 'You never notice anything like that.' 'Perhaps not, my sop,' replied the old man gently; 'but there is one thing I do notice the importance of, which, you will learn by-and-by, andi that is that Gibson pays cash!'

Just a Little Favor. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
Just a Little Favor. 'Oh, George, dear, I have a little .favor I'd like to ask you before you go to town to-day,' said Mrs.-. Jelks, the other morning, as her husband was putting on his hat. 'Well, what is it?' 'I wish you would just help Lizzie to move the piano out of the sitting room, and get down those bookcases. And I want tne coucn carried out o£ the room into the garden, where it can be thoroughly dusted. And then if you'll just lend a hand in getting the carpet on the line, and help Susan beat it, and take down those large pictures on the sitting-room wall and carry them out, so that all the dust can be brushed off the back, and— well, if he hasn't gone! That's just like a man! Ask him to do any little thing about the house, and he flies off as if a mad bull were after him! I never saw anything like it!'
RADIUM AND RHEUMATISM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
RADIUM. AND RHEUMATISM. Professor His, in an account of the treatment of gout and rheumatism with radium, stated that in one hun dred severe chronic rheumatism cases under his care, which had been treated without success with other methods, fifty per cent, showed an obvious amelioration wnen subjected to tne radium treatment, a great number showed a remarkable improvement, and five recovered completely. Out of twenty-eight cases of gout, twenty four were considerably improved, some completely recovering, and only four showed no change. In regard to the administration of radium, Professor His recommended the inhalation of radium emanation, but for this the patients must spend two hours daily in a radium 'emanatorium.' ? tions of a fluid containing radium in the neighborhood of the affected joints are also very efficacious.

_ BOISDALE. - P — - - - (From our own Correspondent.) About 50 thinners are very busy in the beet fields here, and the majority of them are working harmoniously.

A very painful accident happered to Mr Chris. M'Crae on Tuesday last. He was engaged harrowing some very rough ground with a disc harrow, when by some mischance his foot canglit, and he was thrown 'violently to the ground in front of the discs. Fortuuately the horses stopped at Mr M'Orae's c'ail. The accident, was noticed by some farmers working on an adjacent building, who quickly rendered him assistance and conveyed him to his home. Dr. Bona was telephoned for; and found that the leg had been badly hurt, and it is feared that the ligaments of the knee are severe...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
The delay in striking this year's rate by the Avon Shire Council, which cannot be a differential one as regards the three ridings of this shire, has been brought about by the necessitous condition of. the East Riding; only £60 being available for expenditure during the current twelve months. The heavy outlay in the past on protective works m the Avon river to preserve the town from destruction by flood damage, and the conditional grants by the Govern ment of £1 for £l and not straight-out giving, has practically eaten up all available funds, and the condition of roads, etc., is steadily becoming worse. The sum of £900 was expended last year in securing the south bank, the approach to the bridge on that side being threatened with destruction, and a flood subsequent to the completion of the work scoured out the piling driven to a depth of 15ft., and unfooted it, render ing'it useless. The present contract on the east bank, being carried out at a cost of £1200, has not so far been as s...

BRIAGOLONG. ? V ? (From our own correspondent.) The third anniversary of the open ing of the Church of England was commemorated on Sunday by a special service in the evening. A very large congregation assembled to hear the Lord Bishop of Gippsland , who preached the anniversary ser mon His Lordship took for his text St. John 9—4 ' I muBt work the work of Him tbat sent me while it is day ; the night cometh when no man can work,' and dwelt upon the necessity of every member of the church taking his part in chnrch work. He showed, during the course of a very impres sive and instructive discourse, that our only opportunity of working for God is while the day lastB — ' the night cometh when no man can work.' His Lordsbip prefaced his remarks by special reference to what had been accomplished by the mem bers of the Briagolong church, and referred iu grateful terms to the earnest work which had been done, and to the evident signs of progress and interest. He congratulated the congregation ...
