In His Own Way. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

In His Own Way. Among the passengers booked for a recent coastwise trip of a steamer run ning to a southern port were a timid- 1 looking man and his equally timid-1 looking little wife. One of the first of the many ques tions put to the captain of the vessel by the little woman was this: . 'Could you, sir, tell my husbana i what to do in cd.se of an attack of sea sickness? He is particularly liable to such attacks. What must he do?' 'It isn't necessary to tell him what | to do, ma'am,' said the old captain, grimly. 'He'll do it.' 'T trust, Miss Tappit,' said the kindly employer to his secretary, 'that you have something in reserve for a rainy day.' 'Yes, sir,' answered the earnest young woman. 'I am going to marry a man named Mackintosh.' We hope Mac ' won't blame us for ; giving the show away. | Mrs. Muchblest: I feel uneasy. The baby lias not cried all day. Mr. Muchblest: So -do I. It will orobably cry all night. 'Does the course of their true love ] run smooth?' ' ; 'Yes, indeed....

THE HEALER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

THE HEALER. 'On the lonely island of Kerguelin, which is in the Antarctic Ocean,' said the stranger, with mournful emphasis, 'there grows a remarkable vegetable known to botanists and savants as the Kerguelin cabbage. The juice of this remarkable plant, madame, is a won derful liver regulator. To bring that juice to this country, where people have so much trouble with their livers, is commercially impossible owing to tbe expense of transportation. But there are always noble souls ready and willing to m'ake sacrifices for the pub lic sroofl. so a number of eminent di vines, headed by the rector of Shoe buryness, raised a fund to import this precious juice in order that liver dis eases might be done away with. I was appointed agent to introduce this great medicine ? ' 'Well, go and introduce it to the police,' said Mrs. Curfew, with dead ly calmness. 'I got up early this morning, hoping to bake a couple of pumpkin pies, as my married daughter is coming in to-morrow with her lit tle gi...

Write your name in some corner, not for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith. , Write the name of persons very distinctly. - , Do not bother about grammar or spelling ; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifies. Give information, but let criticism alone. The information will probably be right, and the public can make their own deductions therefrom.

The Unseen Witness. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

Tie Unseen Witness. By H. J. Bickle. Thrown like a shifting shadow against the silvery background of the moon-hooded garden, a man's figure made its cautious way through the grounds that surrounded the grey old pile of Trenton Court. Something stealthy in his move ments suggested a sinister purpose, for, as he approached nearer to the house, he crcpt close within the dark ? ness of the clustering shrubs and ueets. Yet his face was not that of a man accustomed to actions that demanded secrecy and' the veil of night to con ceal them. It' was open and frank, its smile ready, its eyes fearless, a« thougja now a heavy cloud was upon it, and his gaze was dark and sombre. As he came nearer to the beauti ful old mansion that was the home of his boyhood the thought struck him that he was returning to it like a thief in the night, and his step lagged. He halted, as if in doubt and hesita ? tion at the last moment, the purpose that had brought him that faT .waver '???? ing &-r the firs...

Street Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 29 March 1912

Street Lighting. — = — * ? Tbe British . origin of street light ing was instituted in tbe 14th cen -tary, applicable to the city of London, in which honse-holders were compelled dating . tbe winter months, to place a lighted candle in a lantern at their doors. Subsequently so badly were these streets lit, and so dangerous from footpads and thieves, that walk ing in tnem was prohibited after 8 o'clock at night,' subject to spfc'al exceptions, and even then people ?were compelled to carry a light and night watchman patrolled with lan- ! tern and bell, proclaiming at certain points, the state of tbe weather. Stratford streets in tbe 19th century have uot yet reached this hideous condition, but they are well on the way .to it. Instant action is required to remedy matters in this connection. The antiquated kerosene lamps, at present doing duty as illuminants in our public thoroughfare?, are a mere parody on what is really necessary to - protect the. numerous wayfarers, and traffic, from ...

As usual tbe Railway Department did not keep to their scheduled time, the first train carrying the 1st aad 4th ?-quadrons leaving Bairnsdale at least { two hours arter tne time, while the - second train with the 2nd and 3rd Squadrons did not leave Traralgon (its starting place) uutil nearly two hours after scheduled time.'

Laying the Ghost. A bishop declared he would . sleep one night in a; haunted chamber. In the morning his host was very anxious to know what had happened. 'Did you see the ghost?' he asked. 'I did.' replied the bishop, 'and I don't think it will trouble you again.' 'What happened?' 'Well, when he came in I said to him: 'Do vou belong to this house?' He nodded his head. 'Are you a par ishioner?' I asked next. Again he nodded his head. 'Then,' said I, 'I am building a new church, and I shall ex pect you to give me a subscription!' 'And, my dear sir,' the bishop con cluded triumphantly, 'he immediate ly vanished!' 'Can she keep a secret?' 'No, but she can keep a cook, and that's something to brag about.' 'Your clerks seem to be in a good humor,' remarked the friend of the great merchant.

SIR ISAAC NEWTON AND THE APPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

SIR ISAAC NEWTON AND THE APPLE. Christmas Day of 1642 was marked I by the birth of one of the world's greatest men in Sii\ Isaac Newton, who was born at Woolsthorpe, in Lin colnshire. ** During a long and invaluable life, which extended over eighty-four years, his researches covered an illimitable domain of science, and amid his many discoveries it is open to note the remarkable way in which the great- 1 est amongst them has become popu larly associated with a very trivial | circumstance — the fall of an apple. It is curious to trace the manner in which this apple story has been told by different writers, and the different opinions formed concerning it. Pem berton, who received from Newton himself the history of his first ideas of gravitation, does not mention the apple, hut speaks simply of the idea having occurred to the philosopher 'as he sat alone in a garden.' Voltaire says: 'One day, in the year 1666, Newton went into the country, and seeing fruit fall from a tree (as his niec...

LUCK OR FATE—WHICH? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

LUCK OR FATE— WHICH? By Phil. I fail to see why Isaac Watts should consider himself a victim of ill-luck because he befell various accidents which were purely and simply the re sult of his own sleepy bungling. Still, I suppose there are hundreds of peo ple, perhaps thousands, who persist in attributing their misfortunes to that mysterious something they are pleas ed to call ill-luck, but which are doubtless the result of their own care lessness, mistakes, or ignorance. Some time ago I was present at a banquet. The arrangements were ela borate in the extreme, and the tables groaned under a weight of luxuries. Everyone present was in the highest of spirits; but scarcely had we com menced an attack on the good things before us when some morbid individ ual noticed with alarm that thirteen persons had sat down at our table. He solemnly declared that some cal amity would befall one of our num ber during the ensuing twelvemonth. And, sure enough, this proved to he the case. One of the most...
