The Avon River. By Charlie Swan Grade VII The Avon river had three different courses. The first course it had was on the island where all the trees are now, then trees were on each bank and if you wanted to get over, you just had to catch hold of a branch and swing across, it was not very' wide. Then they turned it Jorgensen s way, and it was wider but not so wide as it is now. The next course was the same way as it is now and it is doing more damage than if they had left it where it waB at first because it w.as going straight under the bridge then, but now it is being cut straight into -the other side and it will not be long before the piles that are holding the bridge will go btcause they are just kept in position by a few nail3.

TRIBUTES TO WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
TRIBUTES TO WOMEN. ? Woman is the masterpiece. Woman is the crown of creation. Women teach us repose, civility and dignity. If woman loBt us Eden, such as she alone can restore it. Woman is the most perfect when the most womanly. A handsome woman is a jewel; a good woman is a treasure. The sweetest thing in life is the unclouded welcome of a wife. Handsome women without religion are like flowers without perfume. All the reasonings of a man are not worth one sentiment of a woman. 'Our engagement is at an end, sir! Leave my presence at once and. for ever!' said an angry maiden. 'Oh, very well!' answered the young man calmly. 'I'll gladly leave your presence, but I'll take my presents with me!' - 'Captain, Is there no way in which the ship may be saved?' 'None at all, sir. We are going to the bottom; but I would not worry about the ship, sir, if I were you — she is fully Insured. You'd better find : a llMbtib*. ? ? ? ? ?
Duty Nobly Done. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
Duty Nobly Done. Johnsen was nervous ; ' in fact, he was in a fever of apprehension. For the first time in his life he was in a police court, and the experience to him was most disquieting. He was a witness in an assault case, and now stood trembling like a leaf in the wit ness-box. The gaoler held out the book to be kissed, but Johnson ignor ed it. Instead, he began blurting out his story, until he felt the gaoler tug at his arm. 'Kiss'''it,'h Tie saicl, hoKling oUlr tfe' book. 'Eh?' stammered Johnson. 'Kiss!' said the gaoler sternly. Johnson shuddered. For. a moment he hesitated, but the thoughts of horrible penalties which might fall upon his devoted head if he did not obey spurred him to action, and, to the gaoler's unspeakable disgust and astonishment, he threw his arms round his hairy neck, and kissed him full on the whiskers.
WIT AND HUMOUR. Greater Than Caesar. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
WIT AND HUMOUR. Greater Than Caesar. Jones had been spending his 'even- ing with some pals, and after a merry time together they were wending their uncertain footsteps homeward. When they reached Jones's house he insisted that the boys should come in and have 'one more.' The more sober members of. the party, however, protested that the hour was too late; besides, it might disturb Mrs. Jones. 'Don't let that worry you, boys,' said Jones. 'My wife won't twake, and, anyway, I am boss. Do you un derstand? In my house I'm Julius Caesar. —I'll ? ' Just then, from an upper window, a soft, little voice floated on the air: 'Good-night, boys; go right home. You can leave Julius Caesar here — I'll deal with him.'
A Pursuing Shadow. By H. J. Bickle. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
A Pursuing Shadow. By H. J. Bickle. Why should I continue to endure 'this cruel bondage? Is there no way of breaking free from a fate that binds me to a man who has forfeited every right to a wife's love afid - esteem?' Stella Foyle spoke the words aloud, as Bhe gazed round the ill-lit, shabby lodging-house bedroom. If onlv Rhfl had nnf hp«n aiir»h a f aa! as to mistake tinsel for gold, the false for the true — if . only she could untie that fatal knot which held her like a a captive slave the unhappy ?wife of a rogue, this man whom, for a few brief months, she had imagined she loved. Was it utterly impossible to break from such degrading bonds? Her heart-beats quickened as an idea stole into her brain. She had fifty pounds of her own money. Why not use it as a key that would open a door of escape? She owed nothing to this man who had deceived and ill-treated .. her. No one in the whole world could blame her if she sought freedom by flight from the shame of sharing the life of a com...

Reminiscences of the Past. 'Part' VIII. On a Cargo Tramp. A dull winter March day, with leaden sky, cold bleak wind, and a sluggish tide running up, the Mersey dotted with its anchored freights with their bare yards canted to the wind, presented a sullen and attractive appearance to those unlucky enough to have business upon it. From the stream itself Liverpool lomed through a haze, the remnant of a heavv foer earlier in the day, and this together with the smoke always present in the iBdisticefe-the vessels passing botb up aud down, and the various landing steps ranged along its banks.

ABOUT SAMSON. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912
ABOUT SAMSON. We have often wondered how it was that hussy Delilah managed to cozen Samson in a language he did not understand. The man of Gath was a person of education and had uncommon faculties of acquisition, as we know, but he also had a desper ate facility in losing what he had ob tained. But Professor Macalister, who has so long controlled the excavations of the Palestine Exploration ifuna, comes to solve our doubts with the remark that there was practically no language barrier between the Jews and the Philistines. They had prob ably lived so long alongside each other that the Hebrews traded with them all the week in an amiable way as neighbors, and salved their con sciences by private remarks concern ing them on Saturday; and it is from this inside or esoteric point of view, of course, that we get the tale of Sam son as it stands. On the whole, we are much obliged to the Professor for reminding us that Matthew Ar nold was not only drawing on Bible history when he gave us the...
