. Fall of the Leaf. ' Roy Marshall, Grade IV'. ^ W ben the cork ip gone the leaf can not work any more, and the leaf gets blown off. It fal3s off, so tbat the.. snow will not weigh down the branches and break them. Before the leaf falls, the leaf green goes into the stem, so that it will not be wasted when the leaf falls. To prevent the j sap from running away, the tree grows a corky layer across the stem.

Reminiscences of the Past. PART V. FREESTONE AND GLADS[?]ONE CREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912

Reminiscences of the Past. ? » ? . Part V. Fre*stoxe and Glads* onb Creeks. . Probably, on account of its propin quity, Freestone Creek and its tribu tary the Gladstone, is of more interest to Stratford, as a proved gold-bearing area, than more distant fields. At £rst it was uot. induced as a mining area in geological raapB published by the Alines Department, it being classed amongst the tertiary forma tion?, which were considered to be too recently created to produce gold, nevertheless, gold was got there for ever forty years past, and a township existed at Lower Gladstone, until it ?was wiped out by a bush fire. Gold miuers accustomed to work on the eiluriau formation, the accepted coun try for gold production, are fairly nonplussed at the state of things com mon to the areas before mentioned. By what agency the subversion of the country has been- brought about is quite a matter of assumption. Geolo gists are mostly in favor of volcanic upheaval, and it certainly appears the only ...

Miss Ruby Jorgensen played 'The Harp that once thro' Tara's halls' as an over ture, after which the Rev W. T. Pren tice, in a short speech, explained that the object of the movement was to enlarge the fund for the proposed church building, and voiced a hearty expression of appreciation for the generosity of the Mechanics' commit tee in having granted the free use of the hall for church services.

Long and Tiresome. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912

Long and Tiresome. The preacher finally finished his almost interminable sermon. The congregation had slowly filed out, save one man, who lagged behind to speak with the pastor. 'Do you know, minister,' he said, in a confidential tone, 'that your sermon this morning reminaea me more or a wheel than anything else that I could think of?' 'A wheel!' said the startled divine. 'How could it do that?'' 'Oh, merely that in a wheel the longer the spoke is, the longer is the tire.' - It is a most absurd idea that good ness and cleverness cannot ? gt»; to gether. V . 'ii-i;-

SOME MARRIAGE MAXIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912

SOME MARRIAGE MAXIMS. A man dives headlong into love; a woman paddles in it. If marriages are made in heaven, they have to be tested on earth. - Marriage is a misfortune men and women seem never, tired of embrac ing. ^Married life is easier after twenty years, if you can bear with it until then. Marriage is the end of a man's life, the beginning of a woman's. Even saints and heroes seldom re main so for long to the wives of their bos'oma. Across the face of the married wo man is written the calm conviction that she knows everything, because she is married; and. in 'the eyes of the spinster dwellB tie fierce protes tation that she knows nothing, be cause she isn't. Take no thought as to whom you shall marry. Marry when you please, and you shall discover you have some body else. How easy it would be for . a man to remain in love with his wife if he had only married somebody else! Every man seeks his ideal woman, but Heaven only knows when he finds tier — he never does.

'That was a splendid hit,' he re marked, as the ball was sent flying out of the ground. She thought she felt him squeeze her hand, and, waiting till hiB excitement had abated a little, she whispered: 'Tom, did you ever hold a hand that you would like to hold better tban - mine?' But Tom's mind was full of sport. 'Only once,'' he blurted out, 'and - then'I went nap!' She preferred the upper berth in the sleeping-car and so he took the lower.

THE SENSE OF DIRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912

THE SENSE OF DIRECTION. It is well known that any of our domestic animals can find their way home from a distance of many miles, even after the lapse of some time. This faculty is perhaps oftenest seen in the dog, the horse, and the cat, but is known to be almost, or quite as fully developed in the ox. The faculty has been suunosed hv some nat.nralists to depend- upon a sixth sense, indepen dent of sight or smell. Such a theory (says Edwin Tarrisse) involves an or gan of sense by which the needed ob servations may be carried to the brain; an organ which must be dis tinct from eye, ear and nostril. Physi ologists have not, as yet, found any such organ in the constitution of any animal, nor have they found any nerves different from those which be long to our own nervous system. This is almost conclusive evidence that an imals possess no sense different from ours. ' — If we watch the conduct of a dog When he is thrown upon his own re sources to find his way home, we shall see that he h...
