CIRCE'S PALACE —Chapter II. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
Circe's Palace — Chapter II. By Hylda Gray, Grade VI. Soon after escaping from this peril, some great giants bad eaten u p many of his companions, and had sank every one of his ships, except that in which be himself sailed, by flinging great pieces of rock at them, from the cliffs along the coast. After going through such dangers as- these, yon cannot wonder that King Ulysses s^ftTroj^r v wasyaqito iflpor his tempest beaten bark into a quiet inlet of the green island. He had encountered so many dangers from giants, and monsters of the sea, that he could not help dreading some . mischief, even in this pleasant and lonely spot. For some days, therefore, the poor weather-worn voyagers kept on board their vessel, or merely crept along under .the cliffs ; and to keep them -selyi&ali ye,- they -d ng oysters,- jausfie I?,; perriwinkles, and the like, out of the sand, and sought for any little spring of fresh water that might be running towards the sea.

Eve's Invalid. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 10 May 1912
Eve's Invalid. By. A. G. Greenwood. Mr. Boyfield, of the firm of Boy field, Nephew, Miller Ward and Co., solicitors, glanced across the first class carriage at Eve Jardine. Eve was staring out of the window as the train rushed 011. Mr. Boy fluid frowned at the sodden handkerchief clasped in her trembling fingers. He looked completely at a loss as he watched her eyes fill, brim over, and her tears splash unheeded on her black dress. He turned back to his paper, rub bing his shaven chin and stifling a sjgh. Then suddenly he opened his eyes wide, crackled the newspaper to attract her attention, leaned forward, holding it out to her, and sai.-l brisk ly: 'An accident, Miss Jardin?; your part of the country, I fancy.' Eve looked at' him apologetically, trying to smile'. She took the pap-ir obediently, dabbed her eyes, and stared at the place which Mr. Bov field's attenuated forefinger indicated. 'Unaccountable accident' (she read). 'This, morning a motor car was completely wrecked on ; t...

CAPILLARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
CaI'ILLARITV. By 'Victor Ducret, Grade VIII, An experiment sometimes used to show capillarity is this one, — Put the end of a piece of writing paper into a drop of water and after leaving it there for some time take it out, look at it, and you will find that only the end that has been in the water is wet, Do the 'same to a piece of blotting paper. This time you will find that the whole of it is wet. If you put the end of a piece of blotting paper into ink you will notice that the same thing will happen. A methed that will show the capillary attraction of the soil is this one : — Fill a pot with dry soil, being careful that there is a hole in the bottom of the pot, place ifc in a plate of water and watch it-. After a time you will see tbe water rising to the surface until all the soil is thoroughly soaked. Tbe process by which the water rises to tbe surface ia known as the the capillary attraction of the soil.

Near the centre of England, in one of those midland shires that gave England its fame, is a town called Stratford, situated on the; beautiful river Avon.

This little town is sitaated in the centre of Warwickshire, which is famed for its legends, its castles of Warwick and Kenil worth, and the battles which have been fought in its neighbourhood.

Ministers' Promises. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912
Ministers' Promises. Mr Edgar, Minister of Public Work?, ?has just had a novel experience for a city man. To paraphrase Kipling, '? What do they know of Victoria who only Melbourne know?' And what do nine-tenths of the city people know of the way-back regions of the country ? Yen- little indeed. Beyond a dim idea ot. iorests and mountains and plains, seen from the windows of a train, the ordinary traveller carried about in a comfortable arm-chair on wheels — for tnat is what a train amounts to — can acquire no intimate personal acquain tance .with the settlers who work out their existance in remote farmsteads to be reached only by rough and tumble journeying on more or less atrocious roads. Yet it is only by a journey of that sort — or by many journeys that one gets a true and correct notion of the real life troubles and struggles of nearly -half of our fellow citizens up country. Which said citizens are of quite as much importance in the composition of the State as city folk are. P...

They were fight ing on y. bridge, and being blind.- with i rage, as is often the case, over they j went into the water. The banks. were so high that they were L forced to swim some distance before 1 they came to a landing-place. It was fery easy for tho Newfoundland dog, lie was as much at home in the water is a sea!. But not so with poor Bruce.' ' iie struggled and tried his best to swim, t-ut made little headway, Old Bravo, the Newfoundland, had reached the land, and turned to look at h.-s old enemy. He saw plainly that hir strength was fast failing, and that lie ivas likely to drown. So what- should he do but plnnge in, seine liim gently by the collar, aud then, keeping his nose Ujovg water, tow him safely into port. It was curious to see the dogs look n* Mcb othei as soon as they shook tkni* vet cuaU.

Reminiscences of the Past. ? -? ? ? ! A Run at the Ladt Bark i. v. Part VII. Many a long year has paased. — fnllv 40, — since I was on the Eureka Lead, BaUarat. How fall of me mories must its name be to those yet alive, who remember it in its pristine vigor an 3 golden ptoluctive ueas ; who took part in the stirring events of those rollicking times.

The lead at that time ?was a bonanza to Chinameu, who, after heavy rain were there in scores, specking over the heaps, and many made their living at it, in pre...
