ARBOR DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912

Akdor Day. By Laurie Martin, 'Grade VI. Arbor Day is to be celebrated on the 5th July, this ye^tr. Mr L. Robertson has offered some trees for the school ground, and we would be very pleafed if anyone else would do the-£same. We are dividing our school yard into -three parts, one for the higher classes, the next for the middle classes, the other for the lower/ classes. The boys and girls are putting in clumps of trees for shelter in the yard. Mr Hall has got the plans made out, to show us where we are to plant the trees. We, as a rule, spend a pleasant and interesting day on Arbor day. Several gentlemen will. address us during'the day, and we pay great attention to what they say. It is hoped that we have a good fall of rain in the mean time, as it would make the holes much easier to dig, and be'a great help in giving the young trees a chance to strike in the. soil, by being damp.

EARLY PIONEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912

Early Pioneers. I-y O.M.S. Grade VIII. The first person to discover Stratford was Angus Jf'Millan, who, in the year 1839 after several fruitless attempts, succeeded in penetrating into the pathless woods, and fertile plains surrounding Stratford, News of his success spread very quickly and many squatters from New South Wales came down in search of fresh pasturage. One of the first, William Odell Raymond, took up two stations on the Avon river. Land at this time was much cheaper than what it is now. Fach squatter had the right to purchase 640 acres at 20/ shillings per acre, to tuilrt' upon. This right known as the Stratford Pre-emptive Right, did not include the original township, it finished a good distance north of it. Mr O'Meara, also was one of the early pioneers, and was owner of two public houses. In 1854 surveyors prepared to~survey the township. Raymond insisted that each of his hotels should be on a_ corner block, aud hie gained his point, too much to the detriment of the p...

MAGNA CARTA. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912

Magna Carta. By Kathleen Galway Grade VII, Of all the bad kings of England none was so bad as King John, and while he was reigning the land was full, of wrong. If he had been a good man he could have done great work for England, but being a bad man wrought much evil. No man, in^his time, could be sure, of justice, riot even the greatest baron. This injustice led to all classes of people rebelling, . and it was then that King John had to give in at the famous meeting held at Runnymcde — 1215, where he was compelled to sign Magna Carta, or Great Charter. This charter made it easy hot only for the clergy, and nobles, to get justice, but for the ordinary Englishmen also. It has also helped to win the justice, that the ordinary man enjoys to-day, the man who lives in England, Aus tralia. or New Zealand. The charter contained many promises, which John was to^keep. The, -three main ones r^^g^^.^;Thht e^^-y- 'maB^was.ta-:.heL mecfyDyJ'lns' equals. (2) That people should not be taxed unfairl...

SOLUBLE MATTER IN SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912

Sot.vislk Matter in Soil. Uy Victor Ducret, Grade VIII. A ? method sometimes used to- see if certain substances are soluble, i6 this one Procure six bottles of water, and into these put a certain amount of sugar salt, mustard, starch, flour and soil, shake them up well, and leave them to stand. If you look at them a couple of days after, you will notice that none of the sugar, or salt, is left at the bottom, therefore it has dissolved. At the bottom of each of the others, you will notice that there is a sediment. Now you want to know how much soluble matter is in your soil, as it is the only food a plant can use straight away, for none of the other soil is yet ready for use. To he able to do this, you want to know the experiment. The one that we generally use at school, is this one. Weigh out an ounce of soil, put it into a piece of filter paper, and put the filter paper over the neck of a bottle. Having done this pour some water'over it gently, being careful that none of the water,...

The recent visit of inspection to the Dargo district of the Hon. the Minis ter of Public Works was, to the resi dents, a triumphal progress. No just demands made upon him were refused, and sympathetic attention and grave consideration were extended to all requests for assistance, which were granted as far as practicable. The Minister travelled hard the whole time he was there, and passed through the country from end to end. That the visit will be of immense benefit to the locality, both now and in the future, is certain, for Mr Edgar, by personal observation, is fully seized of the capabilities of the land and the needs of the settlers, requisite to briiig it up to its fnll productive capacity, in which be promised to assist to the Extent of his ability.
