MOST FREQUENT DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

MOST FREQUENT DREAMS. Mr. H. G. Hutchinson has made a classification of 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 — yon are fall ing over a precipice or down the stairs z. ine nymg aream — tne aream mat 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 bsast. or injurious person or thing, that is pursuing vou. 5. The dream of being drawn irre sistibly to some dangerous place, such as a fire. 6. The dream that some darling wi3h 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 there are ft great many more.'

THE AGE OF WONDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

THE AGE OF WONDERS. 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 I' It certainly is a precocious infant at any rate. The announcement that Marconi has just passed a wireless message across the Atlantic is received without any ex citement. An evening paper says if Marconi had invented a method of pre cipitating himself instead of his mes sage across the Atlantic, our mpidei. aunt would simply have said: 'Well! well ! what will they do next?'

Mechanics Institute ? « ? At the annual meeting of subscribers to the above Institute one of the speakers remarked that it was not the peop'e of Stratford that built tUe hall, but the Government. This statement has caused a deal of discussion among the older residents. wno natiy contraaicc sucn a state ment, and we have received a deal of' correspondence on the subject, the publication of which would only lead to ill-feeling and possibly the rupture of neighborly sentiments. We have made inquires in different directions about the matter, aud for the benefit of the younger populatioD and those who have been described as ' carpet baggers,' we make those facts public. About 1S33 a movement was ini tiated to raise funds for the building of a hall and after a canvass of the district was made it was found thafe the result was far from encouraging. It was therefore decided to hand back, the sums subscribed. About a year later another effort was made to start the scheme, and this time with ...

FAMOUS PEARLS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

FAMOUS PEARLS. The most remarkable pearl in the universe is that which the great tra veller Tavernier sold in the seven teenth century to the Shah of Persia for the modest sum of £120.000. It still forms one of the chief ornaments in the diadem of the Persian monarchs, and it- is a thing of beauty indeed. The Imam of Muscat possesses a Dearl weiehine over twelve and a half carats, and so wonderful is its texture that the light of dav can be seen through it. , It is valued at £40,000. The Pope is in possession of a pearl, given to one of his predecessors by a Doge of Venice, which as to size and shape, is unique. It seems out of place in the glass case of an old man. It would be. much more suitably dispos ed about the . white throat of some Court beauty^^ ^ ^ _

HIS ONE MEAL A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

HIS ONE MEAL X DAY. A famous and eccentric physician, who flourished in London one hundred and thirty years ago, was an advocate of a restricted diet. He held that one meal a day was enough for any one, and he practised what he preached. But that meal ! This is what a chronicler of the time said of it — ' For over twenty yeans Doc tor Fordyce dined daily at Dolly's chop house, near Paternoster Row. At 4 o'clock he entered and took hi3 seat at a tabie always reserved for him. A Bilver tankard of strong ale. a bottle of port wine, and a measure contain ing a quarter of a mnt of brandy were instantly placed before him. Th' moment the waiter announced bim the cook put a pound and a half of rump steak on the gridiron, and some deli cate trifle was placed on the table to serve until the steak was ready. This | morsel \yas sometimes half a broiled ; chicken,' soirietimies a plate of fish. When he had eaten this the doctor took one glass of brandv. and then proceed ed to devour his steak. W...
