No title [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

The average farmer is always pretty keen on the bawbees, and in the busi ness of money making he reckons there are no points to learn, yet those of this district who supplement their income with what they can get from the product of cows are missing one of the biggest things that have ever came their way. liuite content to supply cream and milk and to receive what ever is offered them, they ne,rer for a moment compare cheques with the price of the article manufactured from what their cows supply. The spirit of co operation is one that the average man seldom considers beneficial. No one can circumvent him ; his methods are always the best, yet many of him are beginning to realise that the old methods must he discarded if success is to be ac complished. Our shrewd German friends of the Wimmera were the first to tackle the problem. The high priee that, in former years, they were called on to pay for farm machinery, and the revelations that followed the sitting of the Harvester Commissi...

THE GENTLE LIAR. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

THE GENTLE LIAR. There are liars who are cruel, there are liars who are kind, But the latter are the subject of my song; They are making people happy and I truly cannot find That such gentle unveraciousness is wrong. For the gentle liar whispers what we dearly love to hear; If we're skinny he will tell us we arc* fat.. And he works it vice versa; but it certainly is clear That St. Peter wouldn't shut him out for that. When you're broke and flabbergasted and you show it in your face, Then the gentle liar bubbles up to you, And he says, 'My boy, you're looking like a winner in the race, , With the others clear behind and out of view.' When you're ill he says you're better and he laughs your fears away, Entertaining with his most men dacious chat; And although he makes you happy his veracity's astray — St. Peter wouldn't shut him out for that. He tells the dumpy people that he likes them better small, He tells the ugly people they are fair; He has a merry fairy tale to fit 'em one and ...

PEOPLE WHO DON'T LAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

. I PEOPLE WHO DON'T LAUGH, j Laughter is unknown among the Veddahs of Ceylon. They are the most solemn people in the world. When a traveller asked some of them why their people never gave indica tion of mirth, they replied that they never saw anything to laugh at. On the other hand, some savages appear to have a more robust sense of humor than their civilised brethren. Dr. Livingstone tells of an African tribe who, when dressed in clothes for the first time, 'rolled about on the ground in uscontrollable fits of laugh ter.'

Conquering Chance. By A. G. Greenwood. I. Ill be a sluggard, a drone, a syco phant, a loafer, a parasite no longer,' I said doggedly. 'Then — go!' thundered Mr. Bolton. 'Go! but remember, the ties which have existed between us for nearly thirty years end as you cross the - threshold — end now and for ever. We part and remain strangers. D'you un derstand me?'

Sporting. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

Sporting. CRICKET. A On Saturday last a match was played on the local ground between teams representing Perry Bridge and Stratford. The home team made a wretched stand against the bowling of Bedggood aud Scott, the score standing at 16 when the eighth wic ket felL Crowe (15) was the only batsman to reach donble figures. With the total of 44 the game looked the best of good things for the visi tors, but the glorious uncertainty of cricket was again evidenced. The Periy Bridge batsmen appeared to be utterly unable to play the bowling of Baylies, Johnson and J. Lee and when the last wicket fell the score atood at 31.

Make Your District Known. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

Make Your District Known. Concerning some parts of the dis trict news comes but seldom. Now this is not the fault of tbe Editor, for he has no miraculuous powers of knowing what is happening in all the places in the area of circulation. It is the fanlt of residents in silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one else is doing it for yonr district, will YOU try on the lines ? Send accounts of public and social events in your township or neighbor hood. Write yonr name m some corner, not for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith. , Write the name of persons very distinctly. Do cot bother aboHt grammar or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifies. Give information, but let criticism alone. . The information will probably be right, and the public can make their own deductions therefrom.

Melbourne workers make strong -corapiaint6 about John Weary's practice of hanging over the adminis tration of the Factories Act to officials -with a babit of ' adjusting' matters. The other day, a girl in a ColHngwood factory discovered that she had been ?siuderpaid for many months, and that the accumulations totalled £45. On a trade union officer pointing out the delinquency, of course, the girl's employers promptly paid up in full. But tbe Act doesn't Bay anything ?abont these private settlements; it cays a prosecution pball take place «nd fixes the penalties on conviction, . .This adjustment business means that -t be hcE-ist employer pays the legal trages all along, while the dishonest ?one only pays when he has to, and liis halo ard his expression of saintly innocence remain undamaged.

Gasometer Bursts Into Flames.. ?From Lloyd's 'Weekly News. Just after two o'clock, in the gloom of a typical January afternoos, a low rumbling was heard in the neighbour hood of a huge gasometer, containing a million feet of gas, at Ilkeston, near Nottingham. A spectator beheld the side of the great casing open out and tear like: paper, a^livtd sheet of flame shot into the air, a noise like an earthquake, with accompanying shock, reverberated over the town, the dam holdinsr back the water in which floated the gasometer gave way, and the water in a flood poured out into the streets. Ih a few moments a terrace of houses had been wrecked, and- the woodwork of buildings near the gas house had ciaught fire- Large pieces of coal and brickwork were flung in all directions, and a terrified girl who fled into a cellar for' safety was fol lowed by a torrent of water, and drowned before help could reach her. Happily it was the gasworkers' dinBer-hour when the explosion oc curred. There was a t...
