A branch of the Australian Na tives' Association will be formally opened in Stratford on Wednesday evening, 13th inst., when a bmoke night will be held in the Mechanics' Institute, to which all are cordially invited. Mr John Lemmon, M,L.A., Chief President, Mr F. C. Wain wright, General Secretary, and Mr G. H. Wise, M.H.R., of the Board of Directors, will lie present, also visi tors from the Sale, Briagolong and Newry branches. On Saturday night a gentleman who was travelling in the late train from Sale had a narrow escape from what might have proved a severe injury. The train had just passed the Montgomery siding when some mad-brained fool hurled a large missle, which struck a carriage with great force, giving the occupants a rude shock, One passenger was seated with bis elbow on the window frame and the piece of metal thrown just grazed his arm. It is to be hoped the police will make enquiries with a view of the finding the perpetrator of the act and putting him where he will no l...
A SHELF FOR REPAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
A SHELF FOR REPAIRS. There are few things of greater use to a housekeeper who has to study economy than a shelf with materials for repairing and renovating. First of all she should have two or three small cans of paint and two good brushes of different sizes. Paint pre serves as well as decorates. In papering a room ' be careful to keep remnants to repair cracked or torn places. It is never easy to match. When you are having furni ture upholstered it is better to use pieces of a yard or so in making cush. ions. These always give a room an air of comfort and completeness. It is not wise to store up remnants for which no one can find immediate use. House-room is usually worth more than an accumulation of useless odds and ends. A little can of white paint and a bottle of liquid gilt will change the old battered wooden picture frames in to neat, pretty ones in white and gold, which are particularly pretty for bed rooms and sitting-rooms, where every thing should be bright and cheerful. ...

Radical Change. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
Radical Change. Shortly after Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema, R. A., was knighted, he and Lady Alma Tadema gave an 'at home.' Everybody present was congratulating them, and one lady was very profuse. 'Oh dear. Sir Lawrence,' she said, 'I am awfully glad to hear of the hon or you have received! I suppose now that you are knighted you will give up painting and live like a gentle man?' A woman h'as to have a lot of faith to believe that her husband never thinks of any woman but her. When two women talk it's a dia logue; when a woman and her hus band converse it's a monologue. Every man is firmly convinced that he gets all the punishment he de serves — also a lot that he can't ac count for. Husband: You are not economical. Wife: Well, if you don't call a wo man economical who Baves her wed ding dress for a possible second mar Tiage, I'd like to know what you think economy is like. Self-indulgence deprives a man of everything that might make him great. What we -do to-day determines our to-morr...
LOVE, THE MIXTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
LOVE, THE MIXTURE. A million years ago the chemist old, Fused in his furnace many potent things, Tincture of pride, red blood, and pow dered gold, Anger and grief, and dust of broken wings; » And laughter, and the salt of unshed tears, Sun-rays, and moon-sheen from the skies above, And courage in full measure; down the years . He spilled the mixture — and we call it Love. ?
THOROUGHLY CLEANSE THE TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
THOROUGHLY CLEANSE THE TEETH. Regular and thorough cleansing of the teeth (and mouth) is the most im portant of all personally, available means for their preservation. It adds to the beauty of the face, the purity of - the breath, the comfort of the posses sor, and increases the pleasure de rived from the sense of taste, pro motes good digestion, and greatly re duces the liability to inflammatory dis eases of the gums and throat. Very many teeth suffer from impro per methods of cleaning, and others from insufficient cleaning by the best methods. Intelligent people, who are in other respects very fastidious some times, err unintentionally in hits re spect. Get a suitable brush of me dium softness, with bristles neither too hard, too yielding, nor too long. If a new brush be too stiff, it may be softened by placing it for a few. min utes in moderately hot water, the length of time being determined by the rapidity of its softening. Brushes vary in this respect. Brushes should be placed...
As a Precaution. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
As a Precaution. A good story is told of the old journ. alist Frederic Guest Tomlin. One day he found his office locked and the office-boy missing. When the boy appeared Tomlin re proved him for over-sleeping, a charge which the boy tearfully refuted. 'It's this way, sir,' he said. 'My uncle was hung at the Old Bailey this morning, and, although we weren't on speaking terms with him, I thought, as one of the family, I ought to be there.' ? 'Quite right,' said Tomlin; 'never neglect your family duties; but when another of your relations is to -be hanged, please to leave the officekey. under the mat.' Hear not evil readily. Remember he who bears the scandal of another to thee will some time take another evil words concerning thee, and per haps more justly, for hath he not seen thee open thy mind to evil instead of Shutting thy heart against it and bar ring it with a generous thought? The active principle of all -plants is strongest just when the flowering pro cess is going on, but bef...
Concentrates. DO YOU KNOW— [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 1 March 1912
Concentrates. DO YOU KNOW— That in consequence of the growth of live-stock business at Fernbank, it has been decided to equip the sta tion with sheepyards. That ' Plugger Bill' Martin, the Yankee hero of a hundred cycling snrints. is still in Australia. Nowa days he is a dry-goods drummer on the Riverina circuit. That our Briagolong friends will have an opportunity of purchasing their supplies at riuuculously low rates on and after to morrow. That a big sale is,about to start at M'llroy's Federal stores. That a local expounder of the gos pel discovered a new route from Boisdale on Sunday night last. That the said route took him through Briagolong, where a good Samaritan gave him his bearings. That he turned up just as a search party was being organised. That a meeting of members and in tending members of the A.N. A. wil be held next Tuesday evening in th Mechanics' Institute, That the water tanks are still in their old dry, empty state and hav been so for the last week. That a sensa...
Her Exact Words. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
Her Exact Words. Housekeeper: 'How's this? You promised to saw some wood if I gave you a lunch.' Tramp: 'I recall no such promise, madam.' 'The idea! I told you I'd give you a lunch\if you'd saw some wood, and you agreed. 'Pardon me, madam. Your exact words were: 'I'll give you a lunch if you saw that wood over there by the gc&to*' 'Exactly. That's juBt what I said.' 'Well, madam, I saw that wood over there~by the gate as I came 4n.' There is only one thing the matter with the poor; and that is that they have no money. If everybody were like everybody else, the world would be as dull as the dead and as unbearable as the grave yard. /
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If new tinware be rubbed over with fresh lard, and thoroughly heated in the oven before it is used, it will never rust afterwards, no matter how much it is put into water. For stained tin ware, borax produces the best results. If a teapot or coffee-pot is discolored on the inside, boil it in a strong solu tion of borax for a short time, and all it3 brightness will return. Tea should be kept in either glass or tin vessels and tightly covered. A lump of camphor kept near silver when not in use will, prevent it tar nishing. It is better to use a wooden spoon than one of metal when stirring milk or soups. All baked puddings, if placed in cold water for a few minutes before taking to table, will leave the dish freely. A cup of moderately strong tea, in which two pr three slices of lemon have been Infused, will frequently cure a nervous headache. A little cornflour added to the salt in the salt-cellar will prevent it hard ening. Proportions are half a tea spoonful of corn...
The Italian's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
The Italian's Revenge' - ? By Tom Carron. At the foot of the central chain of mountains that run nearly through the whole of Italy was a small town, at which I intended to stay for a few days. The views from these mountains, and the picturesque appearance of the country, I was told, would amply repay me for the trouble of seeking them. Here, therefore, I determined to stay for a time, and put up at a good inn in the town. . Good, I say, because it was good considering two important drawbacks; that is', it was a Continental inn, and, moreover, the town a poor one, and innkeepers did not thrive. In Eng land, much of what I have called good would have been deemed execrable. The bedstead was low and crazy, and not long enough; but that was no matter: the fault was in my length. The fare was. not rich, but. I could have most things that could be ob tained for money; but I cared not for that, for I . intended to spend a few days among the mountains, and therefore I should .fare much worse...
THE PAINTED INDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
THE PAifJTf D INDIAN. There Is a tradition concerning a chief who, while hunting, deer, -was chased by a lion ; and fell exhausted, calling uponv'the 'Big Bear,' which Indiana believe was the grandfather of man, to save him. The 'Big Bear' heard, and went to the man's assist ance, scratching his foot and sprinkl ing the blood over him. No animal will eat bear or ; taste his blood,'' and, wien the lion smelled it he turned away. But in doing so he scratched Borne of the blood off the Indian's face with his claw, by accident. When he found himself unhurt the Indian was so thankful that he let the blood ' dry on his face. With the marks of the lion's claws, this gave the effects of stripes, and ever afterward, when go ing on hunting expeditions for man or beast, the Indian painted his face in stripes as a charm against danger. How is it that a naval captain is se duced in rank when he marries?— Because he becomeB his wife's mate. \We talk ahout the sleep of death.' Hpw much deeper, how...
THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST POISON [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST POISON The fact that the Abor tribesmen, against whom the . Government of India have sent a punitive expedition to punish them for the recent mas sacre of Mr. Noel Williamson, are chi--.fly armed with bows and arrows, has led people to imagine that the natives will inflict but little damage on our soldiers. As a matter of fact, however, the arrows used by the Abors are often more dreaded than bullets, for they are usually dipped in a poison which is probably the most deadly in the world. This poison is known as cu rare, and is so virulent that savages have been known to smear it on their nails and kill an enemy merely by scratching him. 'Three years ago a young doctor was convicted at Vienna for supply ing curare to a married woman, who touched a little raw place on her hus band's body with it and he died,' says the 'Field.' 'In effect he had been struck by a poisoned arrow.' Curare is an artificial compound, the secret of which is most jealously guarded by the...

KIDNEY TROUBLES MADE LIFE A BURDEN. I ?'For manv years I was a great 1 sufferer, my . Kidneys were in a very un- | healthy state, and the sec etmns ir regit- 1 lar in every way and highly discolored,'' I says Mrs. Elizabeth Best, 31 Greek-street, I Globe, N.S.NV, 'Also my legs became 1 badly swollen, and although 1 had been | under treatment from a medical man, I could-not net any relief.

"INCOGNITO." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912
'INCOGNITO.' By A. Eden Wharton. ' As the two votaries of Thespis- leg ged it wearily aleng the dusty coun try road, the flame of enthusiasm for their profession burnt very low in deed. It is true their combined -sal- aries ? from the management of the 'Chains of Bondage' company had amounted to under three pounds; but now ' even that had disappeared with ..the manager, and although they had :learnt- to do with very little, they had .riotfyet' solved the problem of living - oii nothing. Consequently, their position, fifty miles from London, with a joint capi tal of three and ninepence, was scarcely an enviable one. . Aubrey Verinder,' who played the i heavy squire, was, perhaps, more . gloomy than his companion, and his ' classic features were moulded into that stern, uncompromising expres sion which he was wont to assume when turning his supposedly erring daughter from his ancestral doors in Act:;l of 'Chains of Bondage.'

Now this is not the fault of the 'Editor, for he has no miraculuous powers of knowing what is happening in all the places in the area ot ciiculation. It is the fault of residents in silent places.
