A LEFT-HANDED MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

A LEFT-HANDED MARRIAGE. . Mrs. Fitzherbert was the daughter of a Hampshire gentleman named Smythe, and had already, at the age „ of twenty-nine, been married and widowed twice. Possessed of con siderable wealth and a capacity for commanding admiration, she was sur- ? rounded by suitors of every age .and degree. George, Priiice of Wales (afterwards George IV.) was six years her junior, but was distractedly in love with her, and repeatedly urged her to accept him as her third husband. But the lady knew very well that any form of marriage with the Prince would be in validated by the Royal Marriage Act. She was also aware that her religion (Roman Catholic) was, at that time, an insuperable barrier to a marriage with the Heir-Apparent to the British throne. As she resisted all ordinary propo sals, the Prince one day caused him self to be hied, and, sending word that he had desperately attempted his life for love of her, induced Mrs. Fitzher bert to see him and to accept a ring as a pledg...

DO WE SAVE ENOUGH? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 12 April 1912

DO WE SAVE ENOUGH? Is the trend of the age improvidence, or do the exigencies of modern life prohibit that laying by, for old age which, in past generations, was acon sideration attended to by all men? Certain it is that to-day few people pay the slightest heed to the future. So long as things financial run smooth ly in the present, they find every ex cuse for deferring even thought, on what they deem an unpleasant ana ae pressing subject. But, surely, a sense of self-respect should urge men and women alike to make some effort, so that on-creeping years will not throw the burden of their existence upon unwilling relatives. It is not fair that the young should be hampered by the burden of the old; they have their lives to mould, their battles to fight, their homes to create, and the addi tional expense of keeping an aged relative is often a sore trial, though iove may seal the lips to silence on the subject, and the ones dependent never be allowed to guess what their failure to make ...

Advance Stratford ? Shire Councillors and I Local Industry. What reasons swayed the Avon Coun cil, at its last meeting, in the matter of the appointment of an official newspaper for^ the Shire, whether of a -public or private nature, or both, is not very bud .to determine. Why the local newspaper, the only one published in the Avon Shire was passed over is not apparent, eEcepfc by deduction, the excuses offered bein» puerile in the extreme and unworthy of consideration. In connection with the matter the following letter was received z—r Sale, March 2nd, '12. The President and Councillors, Avon Shire. Gentlemen, — It has been reported . that you are to be asked to take actionr which will terminate the business arrangements which exist between, the Council and the two newspapers which have hitherto served the pub io interest in the sbire.

STRANGE PLACE FOR A TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

STRANGE PLACE FOR A TREE. A remarkable story respecting' a tree growing on a chimney in Stew arton, Ayrshire, is told in a book writ ten by Pastor Kerr, of Chicago: — 'By the side of a little stream there is a mill, and on the mill there ' is a tajl chimney, and on the chimney at the very top there is a little tree about as high as a man and as slender as a broomstick.

WHY THEY NO LONGER LOVE. Some Helpful Hints for Girls in Love. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

WHY THEY NO LONGER LOVE. Some Helpful Hints for Girls in Love. By Our Heart Specialist. ? The early stage of an engagement is perhaps the sweetest and happiest period of a girl's life, and in many cases it is the same for the man. With girls, however, the pleasure in her lover's society grows as the days pass on. The whole air seems laden with the music of love, and the longer she hears it the more it charms her. Not so the man. Men cannot stand monotony. It is the novelty of discov ering the ways, ideas and moods of the girl he is through the engagement permitted to know intimately that at tracts him. As a rule, after he is thoroughly ac customed to what once seemed un common and attractive, the charm for him has gone. Girls should learn that if they desire to fascinate always, they must never be 'quite the same.' Then there would be fewer broken hearts in the world. For instance, there is a lovers' quar rel — the first. They part in anger. She is miserable, and so is he, for he do...

THE SEA OF SAHARA. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

THE SEA OF SAHARA. A daringly ingenious French scien tist, Professor Etchegoyen, has con ceived the idea of turning the great desert of Sahara into an inland sea. In spite of incredulous criticism he declares that the scheme offers mag nificent possibilities to France. He says that about a quarter of the whole desert is below sea level, and a canal about fifty miles long connecting the Sahara with the north coast of Africa i wmilri nroatfl an nnaan 'half aa 1 as the Mediterranean. There would be no great engineering difficulty to overcome and the results of the en terprise would tie remarkable. All the arid 'regions' surrounding the desert and those' parts of the sea would become as fertile as Europe, since the present sterility is caused enti-ely by lack of water. Millions of human beings who are existing on the verge of starvation could support themselves in comfort, and a new colony, which would possess immense political and economic. . importance, would be added to the territory...

TO THE UTTERMOST FARTHING, Of -l JCKN ROSS'S SECRET. - I. There was nothing very remarkable in the early life of John Ross; the history of his childhood and young manhood days was the history, over again, of hundreds of others, placed in similar circumstances and environ ment. Born of poor, though highly respect able parents, he was sent like all the other children of his native town, to the little national school, where his abilities in no way marked him out as being anything out of the common. In one particular branch, however, iie excelled — the world of figures. Any thing to do with figures, especially when they related to money, he show ed a wonderful grip of; in fact, his ability in this particular direction am ounted almost to genius. When his schooldays were over, lie passed out into the business world, i and his nrst position was as clerk in ' the counting-house of a limited com pany. His ability in this _ position - - pro red the steppiu&etone to a. Similar. post w...

The Beet Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 19 April 1912

The Beet Industry, j Beet harvesting operations are well advanced, and will shortly be drawing to a close. In view of the bonus to be paid to growers on the average percentage of sugar obtained during the manufacturing season, it would be wise for all suppliers to push on with their deliveries so that the per centages may not be affected by adverse weather conditions. All growers are jubilant over the announcement that an increased price for beet will be paid this year, Dr. Cameron announcing the fact at the Boisdale meeting that the growers would be paid Is 4d per centum for every one per cent sugar contents over 15 per cent. It has been recognised by the Government that in spite of heavy expenditure in all operations this vear t.lifi ornwem Ko-m had to Buffer considerably owing to the very light nature of the crops, which is due primarily to the extreme dryness of the season and the fact that the seed was not sown in many cases as early as it should have been.
