Street Drainage. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 22 March 1912

Street Drainage. -- | -- The strongly expressed opinions as to the insanitary state of the Strat- ford street gutters are well founded and no improvement from a sanitary standpoint need be looked for until the pernicious custom of discharging private drainage into them is sup- pressed. That the shire council has the power to do this is undoubted, see Local Government Act, schedule 13, section 27, page 528. — ' Every occu- pier of any land or premises who causes or permits to run from such land or premises into or upon any such streetor road, footway or channel any offensive liquid or matter shall for every day during which any such liquid or matter so runs, forfeit a sum not exceeding £5." If not already adopted by the Avon Shire Council the whole of this section should be so, and enforced. The council may and have permitted drains from private residences into street channels for the conveyance of storm water, but not as a means to get rid expiditiously of filthy and offensive matte...

Not the Usual Climax. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

Not the Usual Climax. Outside it was a dark and stormy night. The wind blew — as it always does on such occasions — in fitful gusts. Suddenly a stranger appeared at the door. He pressed the button fearlessly. He was. tall and hand some, but his face — as usual — was weather-beaten. The door opened, and the maid thrust her head out. 'Who are you?' 'Is this the Spriggs's house?' 'Yes.' 'Well, I am Mrs. Spriggs's long-lost crm t liovo Loon flwav frnm Tinmfi for. twenty years; during this time I have circled the globe. Break the news gently to mother, please.' 'Mrs. Spriggs is not in.' 'Where is she?' 'Attending a mothers' own sewing meeting. She won't be home for two or three hours.' 'But perchance my father ? ' 'He is upstairs repairing his clothes, and has left orders not to be disturbed, even if you came.' 'Even if I came? Why, they didn't know I was coming.' -'They have been prepared for it in case you did.' 'My sister Ellen?' 'She is rolling cigarettes for a bridge party, and won'...

IMAGINATIVE WRITING. Places described by Authors who have never visited them. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

IMAGINATIVE WRITING. Places described by Authors who Have never visited them. Some of the most remarkable de scriptions, both of scenery and events in English literature, have been writ ten by the aid of imagination alone. That is to say, the writers who pen ned these splendid and most adequate descriptive passages never set eyes upon the things they, described. Read Pl-f rvp tVlQt Tnotrr-ifinQTi+ vinom WJ. Vu M» w AUUQUillV^UUb VU1C* ridge's, 'Hymn before sunrise in the Vale of Chamounix,' can scarcely be brought to believe that the poem was not penned beneath the awful brow of Mont Blanc, and that the poet was not actually writing in the presence of the splendours and glories he de scribes. As a matter of fact, the poem was written in Somersetshire, among the Quantock Hills, and the poet had never seen- Mont Blanc or any other snow-capped peak in his life. But Coleridge's imagination was equal to anything, as such poems as ' Kubla Khan and the Ancient Mariner prove. It is indeed s...

LEATHER TO LAST. Wearing Qualities Increased. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

LEATHER TO LAST. * Wearing Qualities Increased. i An amazing invention that will cause a revolution in the manufacture of boots and shoes, and be a boon and a blessing to every individual wearer, has been, after years of toil and ex penditure, perfected by one of the younger generation of inventors, says 'Chambers' Journal.' A scientific pro cess for treating the leather by which it is made absolutely waterproof and impervious to cold and heat, and its wearing qualities increased 50 to 200 ner cent., is a eood beginning. The next advantage is the prevention of down-trodden heels, as the heels can be removed /and readjusted by the wearer in a few seconds, and are also interchangeable, so that if reversed, say, every three weeks, they never wear down on one side. Everyone knows the discomfort and ugliness of an uneven heel, which destroys the smartness of shape of the boot and makes it look shabby and worn out before its time; and as for the feeling of the thing, orthopaedic surgeons ...

"I KNOW THAT LOOK." [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

'I KNOW THAT LOOK.' By Lee Dallis. Do you know the train Look! I have never in my life entered a fairly well filled carriage without wearing the apologetic 'Look' of an intruder, everyone else wearing an angry 'Look' at my having intruded. My fare is just the same as theirs, but no matter, I wear the abject 'Look,' until another unfortunate in nocent offender enters, and then I don the angry 'Look' in company with my neighbors. But the 'Look I love best to watch is that of the jolly old horse-bus 1 driver who has the supreme pleasure of passing a motor-bus which has broken down — Oh! that 'Look,' what a lot it conveys! Has the horse bus-man not suffer 'ed from burning feelings of indigna tion against the motor garages? This is his revenge. And he takes it! Not content with jeers and jibes at the hot, perspiring, motor-man he finishes up with whistling, ' 'E won't be home till mornin'.' The girl going to meet her lover. Hers is the expectant 'Look!' The mother journeying towards her ...

THE, FEEING VALUE{OF / * DIFFERENT KINDS OF ROOTS. The following note on this subject has been furnished to the board by Mr. F. Bagge, Commissioner to the Swedish Board of Agriculture, (says tl^ 'Journal of the Board of Agri culture'). The experiments' are re ported in Bulletin No. 1G, published by the Central Swedish Experiment Station. Roots take a very prominent part in the feeding of .cattle in Sweden, and many investigations have been made into their value for this purpose. Ex tensive experiments were carried out during 'the winter to ascertain if the yield of milk would be affected by feeding roots containing varying per centages of dry matter. ' The total quantity of dry matter in the roots given to the cows was the same throughout. The experiments during two years were carried out with 120 cows, divided into twenty groups. Of these groups eleven received beet roots, four swedes, three turnips, and two carrots. In connection with the tests a great number of analyses of the ro...

REFLECTIONS ON THE ART OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

REFLECTIONS ON THE ART OF LIVING.. . -.- By Frank Crane. Life consists in eating your envir onment. Death consists in being eaten by your environment. A gambolling dog, gay in the sun shine, is alive because he is breathing ing air, absorbing cosmic heat and drinking water; he is laying hold of these three elements and making dog of them. A dead dog by the roadside is dead because the air, heat and mois ture of the universe are triumphing over his spent life force; he has ceased to eat and is heme eaten. Even so it is in the subtler realm of spirits. If your social surround ings are making you resemble them, if you are losing your individuality and becoming a figure among figures, you are ceasing to be.. If you are using your nation, your political party, your church, your club, your family, to make more Joneses, you are living, j But if you are fading into the general grey, you are dead and are being re duced back to your original atoms. The universe wants to be eaten; for that pur...
