Death of Mr H. Baum. ? # ? Quite a gloom was oast over tfw town yesterday mornin?, when it became known that Mr. Henry Bauss^. of Ramahyuck had expiied the pre vious evening at 8 o'elock, as thet resultof injuries sustained by being* attacked by a boar.

Seaside Excursion. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

Seaside Excursion. ? * ? The annual excursion to Cnaning hame, under the auspices of tbe local branch of, the G.U.O,O.F., was held yesterday, and proved a most enjoy able day's outing. For some days past the tickets had all been disposed of, and many people were disap pointed, and another steamer could have been filled. The local station preBenieu quire a. gay appearance when the special steamed in at 7.45 j a,m., but much of the finery was damaged in the rush for seats that ensued. Every carriage was packed like a sardine tin, and it was difficult to secure even standing room. Hav ing to. endure discomfort like this de prives the trip of much of its pleasure, and it is scandalous to think the Rail way Departmen i is allowed te treat the travelling public in such a man ner. The trio down the river and anro^u the lakes from Bairnsdale to Cua ninghame on the s.s. Gippsland was most delightful. A gentle breeze was blowing, and the passengers, from the baby in arms to the old gray-beard...

THINGS AS THEY SEEM. Reflections on the Art of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

THINGS AS THEY SEEM. Reflections on the Art of Living. I am a firm believer in the call. Some time in every man's life, and perhaps repeatedly for many years, comes an inner impulse to some no ble work and an outer opportunity to indulge the impulse. He has the chance and the desire. Then is the time for him. to arise and go. Let him leave the plough in the field and run. Those who resist the call always regret it. Nature has put into each soul a task for some one part of the wnvlr. Rpffor ctartr^ r?r»?r»o* +H& thing you want to do than to get rich and fat doing what your soul loathes. When Joan of Arc heard the voices in Domremy calling her to battle, she might have said, 'But who will tend my sheep?' When Jenny Lind heard the call to sing she might have said, 'But who will do my knitting?' There are plenty called to knit and herd. No man has a right to preach when he had rather be farming, or to teach school when what he most longs for is making money, or to sell goods whe...

BIRTH OF THE STEAM PRINTING PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

BIRTH OF THE STEAM PRINTING PRESS. In 1804, John Walter, the founder of the 'Times,' in confederacy with an ingenious compositor named Mar tyn, conceived an idea of working the press by steam; but so violent was the opposition of the pressmen to any scheme of the kind that all the experiments had to be made with the greatest secrecy. The enterprise soon, however, came to a deadlock for the want of funds, the old logographic printer, who was still the principal proprietor, refus ing to advance more money for the purpose. Still, Walter's son cherished the idea, and ten years later gave an opportunity to Koenig, a Saxon prin ter, and his friend Bauer, of matur ing a scheme which they had in their heads. The machinery was set up in se crecy in a building next to that of the 'Times'; but a rumor that something was going on had got among the printers, and they openly declared that death to the inventor and de struction to his machine awaited any attempts to introduce mechanism in to their...

VALUABLE HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

VALUABLE HORSES. The Arab's regard for his mare is often expressed in sayings that are short and very much to the point, as, for instance: 'The foundation of wealth is a mare; bring forth a mare.' 'The greatest blessings are a wise wife and a fruitful mare.' As the Arabs themselves are divid ed into tribes and sub-tribes, the same system is adopted in regard to the strain of their horses' breed. In font 111 n ia n n a 4 J-ClVsly vUC3 ID uaiiicu UU IU the same manner as laid down in the Koran for the Mohammedan mar riages. This is one of the chief fac tors giving rise to the high quality of the pure-bred Arab horse. 'Thoroughbred mares are nefver sold under any conditions, and in stances have been known,' says Pierre Ponafidine in 'Life in the Mos lem East,' 'when five and six and ten thousand pounds have been refused; for often such mares that are too old for riding are still kept for breeding purposes.' In olden times stealing a mare was punishable by death. Sheikhs own one or more...

SOME RIPON STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

SOME RIPON STORIES. A couple of examples of comical blunders in clerical speeches are given by the Bishop of Ripon in his Reminiscences. The first was related to him by Dr. Watson — better known, perhaps, as Ian Maclaren, of 'Bonny Brier Bush' fame. A certain Archdeacon was speaking at a temperance meeting, and he adorned .his speech with several hu morous anecdotes. At length it seem ed to strike him that he had perhaps been a little frivolous, so he pulled himself together, and endeavored to close his speech in a fittingly serious vein. But, my friends, to be serious, the sum total of all I have been say ing may be told in a single word — 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not de part from it.'. Train up a child to avoid the bottle, and when he is old he will not depart from it' The second concerns an actual ex perience which befel the Bishop him self. 'I was present,' he says, 'at a parochial tea-meeting. The time of eating and drinking was over...

IS YOUR NAME TAYLOR? £5,000,000 Waiting for Claimants. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

IS YOUR NAME TAYLOR? £5,000,000 Waiting for Claimants. Yet another romantic story of lost heirs is at present engaging the atten tion of the law, the fortune awaiting the rightful claimants being no less than £5,000,000. The history of this fortune is a singular one. About the middle of the eighteenth century Peter Taylor, a native of Falkirk, migrated to Holland, after quarrelling with his brother, William Taylor. Peter not only amassed great wealth in Holland as a grain dealer, but also married a rich Danish lady, his fortune and estate, by a will dated 1785, ultimately passing to a nephew, also named Peter Taylor. An extraordinary provision in the will, however, was that in the event of the nephew dying childless the money would lapse for one hundred years, and then be divided among the next-of-kin. The nephew died child less. A hundred years having passed, legal firms in Glasgow are now engaged in trying to trace the next-of-kin. Of course, there has been a wild scram ble on the...

Notes from Various Sources. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 23 February 1912

Notes from Various Sources.       At Castlemaine the other Sunday, half a dozen local preachers dropped tools and refused to go on hoeing the vineyard, unless their de- mands were acceded to. It seems that the Campbell's Creek Sunday- school superintendant had a difference of opinion with the minister in charge   of the round or circuit; or whatever, they call it, and was subsequently acquitted of a charge of insubordina- tion. This failed to satisfy the pas- tor, or boss vigneron, who called a meeting to choose a ' special jury' to re-try the case ; and, as he refused to listen to reason, and wipe the slate clean, so to speak, the sub-preachers went on strike till he did, and the congregations went without their customary relaxations. It is an in- significant episode, but it shows that the dreadful Socialists are not the only ones who indulge in these la- mentable outbreaks which disorganise trade and flabbergast the collection pl...

PIN PRICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912

PIN PRICKS. Love at first sight is generally in spired by an heiress. Some men are of no more use than a plot in a musical comedy. The people who lend their troubles are not so apt to share their joys. It's a wonder some people don't get cross-eyed admiring themselves. Divorce sometimes demonstrates that you never miss a Mrs. till she's missed. Accept a favor and you will gener ally find that it is merely loaned out at interest. Perhaps the reason a woman so often carries her heart on her sleeve is because she hasn't any pockets. The century plant blooms only once in a hundred years, but the blooming idiot we have with us always. j There is one thing in which a man resembles a fish; he can save himself a lot of trouble by keeping his mouth shut. ? A story is told concerning Charles Collette, the comedian. A gushing young, lady said to him, 'Was there ever a time in your life, Mr. Collette, when all the world seemed a dreary blank to you, when your heart was heavy, when all the sweet...

LOVERS' MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912

LOVERS' MISTAKES. . A mistake which lovers very usu ally make is that of seeing too much of each other in complete isolation from the rest of the family. It is an understood thing in most families that the field should be left clear for the engaged couple, and in consequence a girl's fiance never has an opportunity of seeing her in her natural place among her family and friends, talkative and merry. When a girl pours out her love lav ishly at the feet of her lover there is, as a rule, one thing certain in the days to come: A man restless and sated, and a hungry woman grieving over a love she has lost, and wonder ing sorrowfully how she came to lose it. There are two extremes, into one of which a girl often falls on receiving her first offer of marriage. The worse and the more frequent of these is that of fancying herself in love, when in reality she doesn't care a fig for her lover. I The other consists in a coquettish pride, which leads her, against the die. tates of her better jud...

TOOTLEBOOM'S FOG-LIFTER. An Idea That Ought to Have Raised i Archibald's Income, But Didn't. . Funny, isn't it, how things fall out. Archie Tootleboom, not so very long ago, fell out of an omnibus; but, thanks to a good accident policy, he earned double his usual salary by sim ply sitting at home with his legs In splints and his eye in a sling. And at last, quite himself again, Toot sat wondering what he should do with all the money he had made by three weeks strenuous idleness. 'Really, I don't know, 'Melia;' he said, 'whether to go and have a splash in the rubber market or look around for another snug little acci dent — — Well, what is it?' as Su sette appeared at the door of the drawing-room with a card in her hand and rather more than a handful of apron in her mouth. 'It's a gentleman , to see you, sir — M'sieu Beeglow,' he say. Oh, here he is!' and the maid suddenly fled with a loud giggle as a weird apparition, looking like an electric fan on legs, advanced into the room. 'Wha...
