HEALTH AND HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
HEALTH AND HAPPINESS. Few persons realise how much of their (iappiness2 such as it is, is dependent upon their work( upon the fact that they are kept busy and not left to feed upon themselves. Happiness comes most to those who seek it least and think least about it. Jt is not an ob ject to be sought: it is a state to be induced. It must follow, and not lead. It must overtake you and not you it. How important is health to happiness, i vnd the best promoter of health is i plenty to dot i
THE MODERN FOE OF DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
THE MODERN FOE OF DISEASE. Science is the sworn foe of disease in modern times. Looking back only a few years, we see diphtheria an almost incurable scourge, scarlet fever an un speakable dread, and oonsumption an inexorable enemy marching on to death. In the latter malady ^specially it was a familiar experience that one by one en tire families were swept to the tomb bv this pitiless sickness. Modern scienco has minimised the perils of tubercular disease and taught us that, taken in time, and fought in pure air and a dry climate, consumption is curable.. The wme may be said of most diseases. The keen knife and the deft hand of the Burgeon daringly cutting away sources of poison or dangerous foreign growths, have sav^ed lives by the thousand, and we neecf only courage, faith, and_ obe dience, as a rule, to overcome disease and get well when we are llj.

REMARKABLE BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
REMARKABLE BEACH. There is a spread of beach as spa cious as that of Yarmouth, yet it is all of sawdust. The entire beach is nearly four miles long. Its depth, from the water inland, varies from fifty to one hundred feet. The thickness of the covering of sawdust near the water's edge is several feet. This beach is located at Cumberland Head, near Plattsburg, on Lake Champlain. It is on one side of a bay. A swift stream enters the opposite side of the bay, and on this stream are several large saw niills. From this strange and picturesque beach the ice-houses in its neighborhood, of which there are many, have for years obtained all | the sawdust they have needed, and many tons of it have been carted away for use elsewhere. It will be very many years before the beach en tirely disappears, though it will re ceive no new supply of material from the mills, owing to the. State laws that now forbid the placing of sawdust in streams.
ON THE SILVERY SANDS. Too Much Sand, and Not Enough Silver for Archie Tootleboom. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
ON THE SILVERY; SANDS. J Too Much Sanc| and - Not Enough I Silver for Archie Tootleboom. ! 'Oh, come unto these yellow sands!' said the top line of the handbill that somebody slid into Tootleboom's hand at the railway station. Archie turned to the final paragraph to see what particular pill or cough mixture the bill referred to, and found it was a railway company s adveruse j.ment of eight-day trips to Winkleton 'on-Sea. Mrs. Tootleboom said that if she had a new hat and a couple or 1 blouses, and the children were provi ded with a new outfit of spades and pails, it might be managed. What j bargain Mrs. Mumford made on the ' subject the Tootlebooms never knew, but the two families started away in company a few days later. From certain things that happened on the way down Archibald was de lighted tp find that there was no lodging-house at Winkleton quite large enough to accommodate the . combined families. Archibald, Amelia, and the juven ile Tootlebooms had the good fortune tc be qu...
APHIS [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
APHIS. Aphis or green fly is the most com-| mon of all garden pests, and attacks almost every crop in the garden in a greater or lesser degree. Its increase is extremely rapid in dry weather, and a weakly plant, is an ideal hofe for it. It has been said that 'Baby Aphides are great-grandfathers in a few weeks, and the^nan who kills the first aphis seen probably destroys po tential thousands. Undoubtedly this is true, therefore it will be seen what care should be taken to catch the pest In its earliest stages. Clear water for cibly applied through the hose-pipe is what they cannot stand, and if this is persevered with they soon 'depart in peace.' Everybody, however, has not the pleasure of possessing a hose-pipe, and it is here where an effective home-made wash comes in useful. A wineglassful of paraffin to a gallon of soft-soapy water is deadly to the fly, but great care should be taken not to exceed the quantity of paraffin named, , otherwise it will be deadly to more than the pest...
DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 27 October 1911
DUTY. I 'Duty is far more than Love. It is the upholding law through which the weakest become strong, without which all strength is unstable as water. No character, however har moniously framed and gloriously gift ed. can be o.omnlete without this abiding principle; it is the cement which binds the whole moral edifice together, without which all power, igoodness, truth, happiness, love it self, can have no permanence; but all the fabric of existence crumbles away from under us, and leaves us at last sitting in the midst of ruin astonished at our own desolation.' — Mrs. Jameson.
WONDERFUL PRESENCE OF MIND. Calmness Under Difficulties. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 November 1911
WONDERFUL PRE8ENCE OF MIND. ' Calmness Under Difficulties. Shortly after leaving school, the father of the present Lord Kinnaird and Mr. Gladstone, both youths, spent some time together in Italy. One day they were in the Mediterranean in a light craft when a furious storm sud denly: arose. After struggling for some' considerable time against it, the boatmen gave way to panic, and cast themselves down in the bottom of the boat and began to pray. Left to her self, the little vessel was in imminent danger of foundering, and had it not been for the presence of mind of Glad stone who, being aware of the serious ness of the situation, sprang to the helm, and told his companion to at tend to the sail, a great man would un doubtedly have been struck off in his youth, and the modern history of Eng land considerably modified. Lady Halifax tells a story of an in cident which happened to her grand mother, when a little girl, living in - the great mansion close to Saffron Walden. She was sent wi...
Madras Mosquitoes. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 November 1911
Madras Mosquitoes. The late Henry Guy Carleton, the playwright, when the mosquitoes were bad, would tell his Madras mosquito story. 'There are no mosquitoes,' he would begin, 'in Brittany, and a Bre ton woman, about to emigrate to Ma dras, was warned by a friend: I ' 'Beware of the Madras mosqui toes. They have long suckers hanging' from their heads, and they will draw the very life blood out of you.' 'The Breton woman arrived in Ma dras duly, and, as she disembarked, she saw three elephants drawn up near the pier. ''Ciel' she cried. .'Are these mos quitoes?' ' '''There's a belief that summer girls are always fickle.' . 'Yes; I got engaged on that -theory, but it looks as if I'm in for a wed ding or a breach of promise suit.'

Tender Memories. When the iceman came out of No. il he found a small boy sitting on one of his blocks of ice. ''Ere!' he roared, 'wot are yer a-sitting on that for? Git off of it!' The small boy raised a tear-stained face. 'Was you eVer a boy?' he quer ied faintly. 'Of course I was! fumed -the ice man. 'But ? ' 'And did you never play the truant?' cut in the youngster. 'Of course I did,' snarled the ice man. 'Now then, you ? ' 'An' when you got home did yer father take a stick an' ? ' A lump rose in the ice-man's throat.

Saving It. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 November 1911
Saving It. ' An old farmer lay on his death-bed. He was so far gone that the doctor told his daughter that she could in dulge him in anything he might crave in the matter of food, to the end of making him happy if possible, as nothing could delay the end or really hasten it. The daughter asked her father if there were any particular thing his appetite fancied. 'Yes,' whispered the old man, 'a bit of gingerbread cake.' A neighbor, who heard the old fel low express his desire, had a fine cake make, rich enough to produce an at tack of acute indigestion in a wood en image. The doctor heard of it, and was not pleased with the old man's choice, but, having given his permis sion, he inquired the next day when he called how it suited the patient and how he had enjoyed it; 'Well, sir,' the daughter replied, 'to tell you the honest truth, father hasn't had a taste of the cake.' 'And why' not?' the doctor wanted to know. 'Well, sir,' said she, 'it was such a perfectly beautiful cake that we h...

WATTLE BARK. Method of Cultivation. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 November 1911
WATTLE BARK.) I Method of Cultivation. 'Is the game worth the . candle?' That question was asked recently with reference to the cultivation of the golden wattle for the sake of the bark. To answer it satisfactorily re quires a knowledge of the . circum stances of the intending grower. It can be stated, however, on the author ity of leading exporters that the busi ness is well worth undertaking, if one wishes to utilise land which is un suitable for other purposes. There are, and have long been, sure markets for South Australian bark; but, owing to the difficulty experienced in secur ing sufficient labor at the right time, and various other causes, the indus try has not prospered as it should have done. Interesting Figures. Discussing the subject, Mr. J. M. Reid (of John Reid and Sons) men tioned that during the 1911 season hundreds of tons of bark left on the trees could have been removed if only the essential labor had been available. As it was, the, cost of stripping show ed an ad...

One of them; looking more carefully at the face of the favoured handmaid than the rest, and t...
"MY PAL JIM." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 November 1911
'MY PAL JIM/ By Frances Brown. It was an exceptionally hot day in April when a tall, full-bearded man walked with a quick, firm tread up the garden path leading to a long, low, white house standing, far back from the main road. Without slackening his pace he reached the hall door, which stood invitingly open, giving a pleasing view j of the. garden beyond through a fur ther door which also stood open. He | gave a sharp, imperative knock, which was almost immediately answered by j the appearance of a trim maid-ser- i vant, who gazed at him with some ! little surprise, as well she might, for James Darrell stood six foot three inches in his stockings, was propor tionately broad, and presented a splendid specimen of healthy man ^ hood. ; His. aspect, however, waft so forbidding^his brow, so dark and low ering, as to cause the girl a momen tary uneasiness, which was not lessen ed when he asked, in abrupt tones, and ih a voice which matched his frame, if her master was at home.
