Reminiscences of the Past. PART IV. HOW DOOLEY CROSSED THE PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

Reminiscences of the Past. Part IV. HOW DOOLEY CROSSED THE PLAINS. In tlie late Autumn months of 1876 heavy falls of snow bad rendered the crossing of the Dargo High Plains impossible for the Harrietville to Grant mailman. For thiee weeks communication between theSb settle ments was suspended, the snow lying, in placed, in deep drift3, dangerous alike to man and horse attempting to pass through them. Torrential rams tad pervaaed the lower coun try, And the state of the roads, gene rally, was such that traffic was greatly impeded. Dooley, at that time, was ?working on a cattle station, some miles above Albury, on the Murray ; held a good billet, was satisfied with his surroundings, and anticipated a long 'stay. However, this anticipa tion was not realised, for a sudden, urgent call, which there was no pos Bibiiity of evading, rendered an 'im ^BHmed)«te retrm Gippsland impera-1 ^^tive, and had to be complied with in quick time. To accomplish this, the shortest route was via Myrtleford...

The Mineral Spring. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

The Mineral Spring. It says very little for the public spirit, no doubt existing in Stratford! as in other communities, that steps have not long since been taken, if nob to exploit, at least to make known to the general public, both far aud near, the fact that a mineral spring posses sing valuable medicinal aud curative properties exists here, and is now used by the residents who have faith in the healing power of its water. Were this benificent gift of Nature present in any other community thau sleepy Stratford, action would ps taken to amplify it as a public benefit or as a busiuess concern. It standa on Stratford FJat, with a few bricks around itf solitary and unknown of -to the world at large, and only of bene fit to the few who, haviug tested its * virtues, are constant in their visits to it. An analysis made for the Avom Council, by Mr John Kruse, many years ago, or, to be exact, on tbe Isfc October, 1886. is appended. ' The water belongs to that class of: mineral waters calle...

TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

TENNIS. An interesting match, on Saturday afternoon last, between Miss Watson (owe 40) and Mrs Smith (scr.), con cluded the tournament which has lately been occupying the attention of lady members of the Presbyterian Tennis Club. Misses Richards, M, Wriggleswortb and Bouchier, who qua lified for play in thesecond round, were losers to Misses Watson, Forsyth and Mrs Smith resnectivelv. Mis Smith drew the advantage of a bye in the semi-final, and Miss Watson defeated Miss Forsyth by ten gamee to six. The fiual contest opened with some vigorous play ; but, after about half a-dozen loilg drawn out games, honors being equally divided.

NERVES OF GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 26 April 1912

? T ! NERVES OF GENIUS. _i 7 Many of the men whose names we revere to-day in science, art, literature and poetry suffered from emotional disturbances, resulting in nerve storms, or outbursts of mental vio lence, which can only be described as super-acute mania. The poet Cowper had strong suici rial -tendencies: vet he wrote ''John ' Gilpin' when suffering from intense melancholia. Shelley had an insane ancestry, and at Eton he was called 'Mad Shelley.' Charles Lamb had to be placed in an asylum, and his sister Mary stabbed her mother to the heart while insane. Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy are almost a ' parallel to Charles and Mary Lamb. At the age of thirty Coleridge was broken down, and he died a wreck at sixty-two. Southey came of an in sane stock. The mother of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, the dramatist, died demented at forty-two. Pope was deformed and rickety, and Keats was neuropathic to his finger tips. Byron's mother was unbalanced, . and so was his maternal grandfather....

Good and prime qualities were moderately represented, and for such the demand was keener throughout, prices in some instances ruling fully (id. per head in advance of last week's rates, closing firm. The im provement was mainly attributable to a few inter-State buyers operating, about 1000 prime crossbreds being pur chased for Western ? Australia. The market wae overcrowded with middling aiul inferior descriptions, and, owing to the continuance of the dry weather, graziers were indisposed to operate, consequently in this division biddings were extremely slack ' at about late rates.'

STORIES OF FAMOUS NOVELISTS. Literary fame seems invariably to mark a -man out- for attention from a large number of undesirable people.

That was bad enough, but worse was to follow. About a fort night later another large packet ar rived; charged with a similar postage.

JUST IN TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912

JUST _ itf TIME. By. Julia Thorne. '?Wei', I declare!' said May, look ing up from the newspaper she had been reading. 'This is the third de serted bride I have read about lately, and they all retire heart-broken and weep their beauty away.' 'What would you have them do?' asked Joan, smiling over her needle work. 'A deserted bride could scarce ly be expected to indulge in a dance.' May looked unutterable Bcorn and returned to her newspaper. But her cousin knew that the silence would not be lasting. The two girls were seated in the lime vine-screened arbor at the end of the garden- walk. The air was scented with roses. The trees of the near woodland fluttered their leaves in the light morning breeze, and a , young man who had come up the winding path and paused to peer through the network of vines, thought that he had never seen a lovelier pic ture than dark, handsome May Vin cent, in her pink gown, with rWhite robed, fair-haired Joan beside her.
