ORIGIN OF THE YARD MEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912

ORIGIN OF THE YARD MEASURE. Although innumerable yards of silk, satin and cloth are being bought and sold every day, it is. probable that very few persons, whether purchasers or salesmen, could say off-hand how we got our yard measure. It repre cpnts th& Arm measurement of King Henry I., which , was 36 inches; and it was he who ordained that the length of his own arm should be the standard yard of cloth measure— an ordinance that has been preserved in commerce to this day.

WHERE WOMEN REMAIN HIDDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912

WHERE WOMEN REMAIN HIDDEN. Should the women of Persia ever get a vote, they will doubtless see to. it that the lot of their sex is consider-* ably improved, for at the present time they are regarded as nonentities. A husband in Persia never speaks of his wife to his acquaintances, and, if obliged to mention ner, it is by some other term than wife, as 'mother of my son,' or my house, sne must not exist for anyone but her husband, and from all others she must be hid den — non-existing. For this reason, when the harems of governors or very high personages pass through the streets of Persia the men whom they meet either turn their backs or slip down a by-street or into some conveni ent doorway. On passing a European, if sure that none of her co-religionists see her, a woman, particularly if she be young and good-looking, will often raise her veil, from under which a pair of dark eyes follow the stranger with a curious gaze. -1 Maidens wishing to get married visit the tomb of some sacred...

Why He Kissed Her. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 8 March 1912

Why He Kissed Her. Daniel J. Shern was reminded of a story when he read the verdict in the breach -of promise case of a young mil lionaire' in New York. 'I .was counsel fer the girl in a case, once,' said the lawyer, 'and I thought we had a good case. One of the strpngest points was the ardent woo ing of the defendant. We could prove at least 1244 kisses he had planted up on the fair one's ruby lips. Imagine our surprise when the defendant ad mitted it ' 'That's true,' said he, testifying. 'I had to do it,' he exclaimed. ' 'Had to dp it?' I roared, hoping to embarrass him. ' 'Yes,' he answered, 'I either had to keep kissing her constantly or per mit her to sing, and— well, I preferred the kissing.' '

SUMMER PRUNING. The Season and the Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

SUMMER PRUNING. The Season and the Reason. Summer pruning is of the greatest value to young orchards of up 'to three and four years old, and would well repay the grower if it were car ried out each year, even after the trees are full grown, though the un dertaking then assumes such propor tions that very few orchardists carry it out. By summer pruning of the young orchard Mr. H. McEwin in his valuable handbook says he means pruning for added growth and vigor, and not for premature fruiting, which seems to be the general idea. Sum mer pruning with the latter object in view Mr. McEwin strongly depre cates unless the trees be five or six years planted, and are making heavy growth with little sign of fruiting. Then and only then should topping and pinching back be resorted to, as this procedure serves to dwarf the growth, and induce the forming of fruit spurs at the base of the season's growth. The summer pruning, or rather thinning, which he recom mends from experience, is to largely a...

FODDER CROPS FOR SHEEP. What to Grow and When to Grow It. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

FODDER CROPS FOR SHEEP. | What to Grow and When to Grow It. Mr. J. Wrenford Mathews, N.S.W., Government wool expert, writing on the subject of fodder crops for sheep, says: — This is the most important fac tor in our system of alternate crop ping — what varieties most relished by sheep, and suitable for feeding off, will become available at the time when most required. We must choose crops of early autumn growth. Some times legumes are employed. These plants are destined to fill a most im portant place in future- systems of cropping; but as they mature later, this later maturity must be taken into consideration in planning the system of feeding. One method is almost universal, wheat is grown every second year, or every year, on half the farm. In al ternate years, or each year, on the half of the cultivation area not de voted to the cereal crop is sown rape together with barley or rye. An ex ception to this system of cropping would be where wheat is grown on a third of the area under...

Martin Dale's Strategy [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

Martin Dale's Strategy By J. Carter. Detective Dale met his stepbrother's eyes in thoughtful challenge. 'My dear Bob,' said he, drily, 'I often wonder how it is that clever people like yourself are always such helpless idiots when it comes to tack ling the most elementary business transactions. Who, (or instance, but an ingrained idiot would allow the formulae of an invention to prevent steel from corrosion to rest in his safe when the same chances to be built in the wall of the offices of the very iron master to whom he was- tendering his luea lor Baje? bod, if ever a chap were tired of getting you out of scrapes, I am he.

OUR WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 15 March 1912

OUR WATER SUPPLY. The existing pumping plant and tanks at Stratford, from which ho much was expected have proved utterly inadequate to snppl y the de mands made upon them. The prin cipal reason for this appears to be tbe sand wbich ascends with the water not only choking or filling the iuw«r pipes, one getting into noe pomp and preventing tbe free aetion of the valves, with result that although the motion is but little in terfered with, no water is lifted. Constant attention to this matter has been given, but with no per manent benefit, and itnsnally happens that when there is an abnormal de mand for water as at present, the pump gives out. The mill itself is not sufficiently elevated to clear the trees on the eastern side, and is often unworkable from this cause, another twenty feet added to its present height would make a great difference. The extra cost to tbe community of water carted from the river (25 per cent.) is a serious tax od small in comes, and it behoves tbe Council to...
