One day be wont. to the siege of Troy, aid after he had taken and burned that great city, he spent ! ten years in trying to get back to his j own little kingdom. Once upon a tirfie, in the course of this dreary voyage^ his ships were driven on a little. green island, which looked very ' pleasant, but the n'ame of which was Qtoknown to him« Only aJittle while before he had met with terrible storms, which drove his vessels into, strange, parts of the sea. This -was caused by - his ship mates untying' some heavy leathern bagp, which they supposed to be fall of valuable treasures ; bnt in 'each of these bags King Eolns, the rnler o? tbe. WindB, had tied, up a tempeet, and had given it to King Ulysses to keep, so that be might be sur* of a favorable voyage' homeward^ to Itha ca; -bnt, when .the bags were ontied, forth rnsbed the wind, whittning the Kea with ...

SHOULD FIRST COUSINS MARRY? [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
SHOULD FIRST COUSINS MARRY?! The seriousness of the risk run by first cousins who marry is emphasised by Miss Ethel Elderton, a co-worker with Professor Karl Pearson at the Galton Laboratory for National Euge nics, London University. Marriages between near kin, such as uncle and niece, aunt and nephew, or grandparent and grandchild, are forbidden mainly on the principle of resemblance. Miss Klderton therefore determined to see whether cousins are as much alike as any of these pairs of relatives. She studied the cases of no fewer than 6000 pairs of cousins, with a view to endeavoring to measure the degree of resemblance in health, intelligence, success, temper, and temperament. The conclusion she came to was this — thai the general resemblance be twes-.i cousins is about half that be tween brother and sister, and practic ally the same as that shown by statis tics of uncles and nieces and of aunts and nephews. 'If the undesirability of marriage within certain degrees is founded on the...
NEW-LAID EGG SKINS! [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
NEW-LAID EGG SKINS! ? Doctors have been searching for many years for a good substitute for human skin. SIkin grafting is the best method for curing bad burns, but it is not always easy to find someone will ing to, part with sufficient cuticle. Dr. Max Staller recently discovered a method of using the white lining or skin of egg-shells in place of human s'kin. This discovery will entirely al ter the present-day methods of doctor ing scalds and burns, and even some skin diseases. The lining of new-laid eggs contains cells similar to the human skin. When this lining is placed on a burn these cells increase in number, and gradu ally spread over the whole wound. In a few weeks' time the surface is com pletely covered with a new skin. The 'new-laid egg skin treatment' has passed the theory stage. Dr. Stal ler has cured several small burns by its method, and .a few weeks ago a woman was brought to him suffering from severe burn's on her back, neck and arms. It was impossible to get the lar...
£1000 A YEAR FOR BUTTERFLIES. The Odd Career of the Insect-Hunter. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
£1000 A YEAR FOR BUTTERFLIES. I The Odd Career of -the Insect-Hunter. A young man who 'is fond of an ad venturous life may earn a good in come by insect-hunting for wealthy collectors of, or big dealers in, in sects. The insect-hunter must, of course, have a fair knowledge of insects and insect life, and be able to recognise reaany me various types or the rarer and lesser-known insects. The really rare insects of which col lectors are in search are only to be found in remote parts of the world;, but sufficient knowledge of insect life can easily be acquired by a student in this country to fit him for hunting insects in other countries. For example, only a few years ago one of the wealthiest and best-known of collectors of insects in England de spatched a young student of entomol ogy, who had never been out of Eng land before, to Alaska to search for beetles of the type known as vespoi deae, which are extremely rare. The collector engaged the services of the young man in question, wh...
HERE'S AN INNOVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
HERE'S -Ati INNOVATION. ' For just one year let's cut out sit ting along the kerb and looking wise; let's hump ourselves and do ourknit ting and keep our homes supplied with pies. Let's try to better our condition by honest work for honest pay and let the howling politician go on his windy, , useless way. Let's worry less about the measures our members of Parliament* intend to thrash and give our wives and kids such pleasures as come to folk who have the cash. Let's do less worrying and, jawing o'er things a thousand miles away and at our wood-piles do some sawing and. make our door-yards clean to-day. By 'fussing round we make life's bliss turn to streams of sorrow, deep and wide; let's paint the barn and clean the cistern, and let the good old nation slide. Too long the nation's cares we've carried, we earnest, patriotic men; the pa tient toil-worn girls we. married should be; considered now and then. — Walt Mason.

A STEEPLEJACK'S FIGHT FOR LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
A STEEPLEJACK'S FIGHT FOR LIFE. Many stories have been told of the adventures of steeplejacks, but it is doubtful if there is one more thrilling than the story- of how Mr. Walter Washington saved his life eight years ago. Mr. Washington, after a very adventurous life as a soldier and sailor, settled down and decided to be come a steeplejack. There was an element of danger and daring about this work that appealed to him, and he soon became known as one of the most daring steeplejacks in the States. In December, 1903, he took a con tract to scrape and paint the iron chimney-stack of the Ridgewood Pump ing Station, Long Island, New York, belonging to the Brooklyn Water Com missioners. The stack is the- tallest iron chimney in the United States, be ing 275ft. high. The diameter of the stack is 12ft. at the top' and 32ft. at the ground, and an outside iron lad der leading to the top of the chimney is provided to facilitate any painting or repairs that may have to be done from time to tim...
AN INVENTIVE GENIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 3 May 1912
AN INVENTIVE GENIUS. 'Speaking about inventors,' said 'Lije Peters, the storekeeper of a vil lage in the Far West of America, to one of his cronies, 'I reckon Sam Whitaker was the greatest inventor that ever lived in this section. His best was inventing hard-luck stories. That man could Eive more nerfectlv good reasons why he couldn't pay for. what he already had, and why he ought to have some more, than any man I ever heard of. Once I remem ber,' continued 'Lije, 'Sam came to the store and wanted some cheese. He'd been owing a considerable bill for nigh on five years, and it had been getting a little bigger every year, and I thought it about time to speak of it. 'Sam,' said I, not moving to get the cheese, 'you're owing me a little bill.' 'Reckon I am, 'Lije,' he agreed, with s-ad cheerfulness; 'but you know how it's been over at our house.' 'How's it been, Sam?' I asked, just to head what he'd say- this time. 'Well, you know four years ago one of my mules — the blind one — fell in...

Testing It. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
Testing It. One day while Pat Doughty was be ing shaved the barber cut his cheek two or three times. Pat made no com ment till the shaving was over, then he picked up a glass of water, took a mouthful, and proceeded to shake his head from side to side. 'What's the matter? You ain't got the toothache?' asked the barber. 'Whist! ' I was only seeing if my mouth would hold water without leak ing!' replied Pat.
THE VALUE OF A WORM. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
THE VALUE OF A WORM. The lawn is dotted with little piles of earth, worm castings they are call ed. Everyone knows them, they are to be seen wherever there is grass. In the summer the gardener's brush, the roller, and the mowing machine dis perse the little mounds, but in the winter they are allowed to collect un checked, unless the owner of the garden is very particular about ap pearances. Occasionally one hears of people asking how to get rid of worms in, or rather beneath, a garden. It is an astounding question ' and displays crass ignorance. One shudders to think of what would happen could all the worms be banished, as the rep tiles were from Ireland, according to the old legend. The truth of the matter is that though most people have a vague idea that these 'castings' have some value as 'top dressing,' tliey have no conception of. the magnitude of the work that the worms are achieving. 'You' are fond of nature, and per haps you are taking some little inter est in this most lowl...
A Cheserby Sensation. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
A Cheserby Sensation. By Ian Grosvenor.--'' Lawton Thomas, the great company . promoter, thrust the papers away from him with an impatient gesture. . Without, in the pa!atial clerks' office, -he could hear the rapid click of type writers. There were over two- score of them at work, manipulated .at top speed by skilled stenographers. The great coup that he had been so cun ningly planning for a month had end ed in victory for the shrewd man who had cleverly pulled divers strings to his own material advantage. Once again he had conquered, yet for the - first, time in sixteen years no feeling of satisfaction quickened his pulses by a beat. He had juggled with gold, copper, stee! — even rubber had been used to add to his colossal wealth, and he had laughed in his very joy at the wizardry he possessed in gaining money. Others had lost. Others had been ruined in the soul-warping gam ble for wealth, but Lawton Thomas had steadily grown richer. A lonely man if you will, but wealthy with the ...
Gippsland Heroes. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
Gippsland Heroes. The Minister of Public Works (Mr. Edgar) returned to Melbourne froui his recent visit to the back blocks of North Gipp-land deeply impressed with the justice of the claims which hare been made for the construction of new roads to open up this remote country. 'I have met many fine cit:zsns' he remarked, ' but none who appealed to me more than these strong hearted, un complaining pioneers of the almost inaccessable regions of North GippsUnd. No one that has not been among them can understand t he terrible struggle they have for exigence, cut off as they are from the world. And yet they do not complain. When I think of the pleasant conditions under which people live in the settled parts of the State, the way some of them whine because the Govern ment does not give them all they -want my heaib goes out to these - sturdy, in dependent men of the back- 'locks, who ask for nothiug but a few roads to enable them to get their produce out to the markets. ' I saw some magnifi...
Reminiscences of the Past. BLACK SNAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
Reminiscences of - the Past. Black Snakk. This creek, well named, for snakes of this description were there in hun dreds, debouches from the ranges on to the Mitchell Flats, near what was known in bygone days as the Horse Grounds, some miles above Water ford. On the creek itself two qnartz batteries had bieo erected, one in connection with the Captain Cook, and the other, a mere coffee mill, with the Black Snake reefs. This latter was a comical affair, of four or five . -bead of stamps only and they so light in weight as to be powerless oa the s:one often put through, or attempted to be dealt with, withont the addition of extra weight., consisting of wooden solid barrels affixed to the top of the stamp shafts, aud whicl* when the mine was working bobbed up and down through the roof like a Punch ? and Judy show, The sm'face stone in the reef, to deal with ^vhich 1 be mill was erected, was of a soft friable nature, and the gold very fine, so that this jumping jack managed to get throu...
