AUSTRALIAN SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 February 1912
AUSTRALIAN SCENK. There is a weird romance in the great spaces and the unrelieved .monotony of the wide-stretching, back-country plains. You find them in almost limitless vastneftg. - for hundreds of miles to the north and the south, tQ the .east and the west — pine ridge on pine ridge, plain : after plain, an. occasional creek;' and - sometimes . a sluggisl) riyeriT . You 'will .rib 'change for day after : day— perhaps for weeli after week— as you ride across the red clay and the black alluvial soil which, with arid fertility, makes, according to the season, blinding, hungry dust, or luxuriant grasses and herbs in never-ending variety, which will meet over the withers of your horse as you pass. The monotony is not tedious, and the sameness does not pall. Here it is where men have come to con quer Nature.' You are riding on an outpost of the Empire. The coun try is all explored, surveyed, and selected. Even down there in Syd ney or Brisbane, in a dingy brick building, they have maps...

WHERE YOU CAN'T CATCH COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 2 February 1912
WHERE YOU CAN'T CATCH COLD. Colds are more prevalent in the British Isles than in any country in the world. At least the average flnar lishman will tell you so. Moreover, he will look incredulous if you tell him that there are places where colds are almost unknown. In Florida, for example, colds are quite rare things. To 'speak through der node' is a joke that Floridans only appreciate at long intervals. Bronchitis is ab solutely unknown in that peninsula nP ntii9 niTia tmao i/i oauu auu piuo uvoo- Curiously enough, if you want to make quite certain of not catching a cold in the head your best plan is to become an Arctic explorer. Colds and influenza are absolutely unknown in the regions of perpetual ice. When Nansen and his men spent three years in the frozen North, not one of them ever caught a cold!' This is curious when one considers how exposed to cold, fatigue, and wet Polar explorers are. Every night -when they tucked themselves_in bed, the first hour or so was spent in thawi...

That eveybody and everything was dry, even including the shire tanks, and many people were without water for domestic purposes. That the individnal responsible for the condition of the tanks should ' toe the carpet.'

Amusing Yet. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
Amusing Yet. What is said to be the most ancient joke is related in one of the Berlin papyri of the sixth Egyptian dynasty — about 3200 years anterior to the Christian era — and is to this effect: — According to the papyrus, a certain scribe who worked in th© Temple of Thoth occupied apartments where his neighbors on either side were a cop persmith and a carpenter. rnese honest artisans were industrious workmen, and made such a noise all day and most of the night that the poor scribe was almost driven mad. At length by a stroke of craftiness he buttonholed each neighbor separ ately and bribed him to change his ! lodgings, which they did — with each - other. This tale has kept the world amus ed for 5000 years. No one can inherit experience and good judgment. We must all gain these for ourselves — by our very blun ders, falls, and bruises. When is an umbrella like a person convalescent? — When it is recovered. Each ray of light from a distant star has been travelling on through the et...
SIGNS OF THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
SIGNS OF THE TIMES. One reason young people think they have so many friends is that they never need them. A woman who cries a great deal is usually a great kisser. When you get through with your work, for Heaven's sake go off and rest don't bother the man who is still Dusy. A man or woman who reads poetry will finally attempt to write it. After a man gets along in years the pockets in which he formerly car ried love-letters are filled with spec- - tacle cases. ? ? ?
THE YANKEE KID. Jimmy Goes Out to Astonish the World. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
THE YANKEE KID. * Jimmy Goes Out to Astonish the World. It was 10 o'clock on Saturday morn ing. Nothing disturbed the stillness of the office except the click of the typewriter. . . ? Suddenly the door was cautiously opened and an anxious face inserted itself in the aperture. Satisfied that IU ~ « Ancf Tifnd fVlQf h O WHS tilt? tuao l naa vicui, uuu vuwj, »»?- unobserved, the body of the office boy swiftly followed. But the steno grapher's ears were keen, and without turning her head, she sang out sweet ly: 'Good afternoon, Jimmy. I thought you had gone on a vacation.' 'Aw, bunk!' was the ungracious re. joinder as Jimmy hung up his hat and smoothed his pompadour in front of the office glass. 'Is the big boy in?' nodding his head toward the inner office. 'Not yet; which is a mighty good thing for you. Better get busy and i distribute that mail. It has been ly ing there since the second delivery, i You deserve to lose your job, being late so often.

Discouraging. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
Discouraging. 'What is the matter?' asked the' aviator's friend. 'Did your aeroplane ' break down?' I 'Oh, no; it bore the strain all right. I Gee! but I'm discouraged.' I 'I don't see why you should be. . You've got hack to earth without J breaking any bones, which it seems j to me is a good deal or a triumpn. Wouldn't the thing buck against the wind?' 'It proved to be a very good wind jammer. I made twenty-seven miles in an hour against a stiff head wind.' I 'Perhaps some of the machinery! didn't work just to suit you. Never I mind, old man. . You'll get that straightened out in time— if you live. You can't expect things to be perfect at the start.' 'There isn't a thing the matter with the machinery. It worked per fectly in every way. But what's the use? Darn it, I never felt so discour aged in my life.' 'It seems to me you ought to be jubilant.' 'Jubilant? There wasn't a single record of any kind that I broke.' I A woman can always forget her 1 age, provided she doesn't look it. ...
NECK EXERCISES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
NECK EXERCISES. Most people who have passed the j age of energetic sport stand in need of some sort of definite exercise in or- . der to keep their muscles from settling down into sluggish inactivity, which j brings so many physical drawbacks in its train. Children exercise without being told to do so, because it is their nature to play, and play is the very best rornr of exercise, especially if it takes place out-doors. But most of those who have passed from child hood or youth do not keep supple with play, and in their case certain special exercises are not attended to nearly enough. They are the movements of the neck and throat which control the head movements. Anyone can test * this for himself by slowly turning the chin from shoulder to shoulder and back, performing what is called the re sistant exercise — that is to say, for cing the head slowly round and at the same time making opposing muscles resist the impulse. The immediate result will in most cases be an aston ishing . s...
BOYS WISER THAN PARENTS [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912
BOYS WISER THAN PARENTS I ' My dear boy,' said a father to hi? only son, 11 you are in bad company. The lads with whom you associate indulge in bad habits. They drink, smoke, swear, play cards, aud visit theatres. They are not safe company for you. I bog you to quit their society.' ' You needn't be afraid of sue, iVihar,' . j rerilied the Lot. .Lauirhi-'uilT. ? ,? '. I - ci&s-i know a thing or two. I know how far to go and when to stop.' Tlie lad left his father's house twirling his cane iv, his fingers and laughing at ' the old man's notions.' A fe^v years later and that lad, grown to manhood, stood at the bar of a Cour« before a jury which had just brought- in a verdict of guilty against him for soma crime in which he had been concerned. Before he was sentenced he addressed the Court, and said, among other things — ' My downward course began in dis obedience to ,my parents. I thought I kiievr as much as my father did, and I turned my back upon my home. Temp tations came up...
