CROWDING TO SEE TENNYSON. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

CROWDING TO SEE TENNYSON. Sir James Knowles accompanied Alfred Tennyson to the funeral of Dickens at Westminster Abbey, and he describes in 'Tennyson and His Friends' the scene when the crowd identified the distinguished visitor: — 'There was an immense congrega tion that day in the abbey, and when the service was over we stood up waiting a long time 1 to pass out through the rails. But instead of dis persing by the outer door the people all turned eastward and flocked to ward the altar, pressing closer and closer up to the sacrarium. The chances of getting out became less and less, and I turned to Tennyson and said: 'I don't know what all this maana hut. wfl spfim so hemmed in that it is useless to move yet.' 'Then a man standing close by me whispered: 'I don't think they will go, sir, so long as your friend stands there.' Of course I saw at once what was happening — it had got to be known that Tennyson was present and the solid throng was bent on seeing him. Such a popularity had ...

WOMEN PEARL DIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

WOMEN PEARL DIVERS. Curiously enough, the pearl divers of Japan are women. Along the coast of the Bay of Ago and the Bay of Kokasho the thirteen and fourteen year-old girls, after they have finished their primary school work, go to sea and learn to dive. They are in the water and learn to swim almost from babyhood and spend most of their time in the water except in the cold est season, from the end of Decem ber to the beginning of February. Even during the most inclement of seasons they sometimes dive for pearls. They wear a special dress, white underwear, and the hair twist ed up into a hard knot. The eyes are protected by glasses to prevent the entrance of water. Tubs are sus pended from the waist. A boat in command of a man is assigned, to every five or ten women divers to carry them to and from the fishing grounds. When the divers arrive on the grounds they leap into the water at once and begin to gather oysters at the bottom. The oysters are drop ped into the tubs suspended fro...

KEPT IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

KEPT IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. In April of this year a ceremony was performed in London which only occurs at intervals of twenty years. This is the comparison of. the stan dards of weights and measures. The official standards in use at the Office of Weights and Measures are . compared with the original standard yara measure ana pouna weignr, which repose in the wall of one of the inner staircases of the House of Commons. The hole in the wall where the two standards are kept is rather like a small tomb, and it can only be opened by actually tearing down the wall. The yard measure is a bronze bar 38 inches long, on which thirty-six - divisions of one inch — i.e., a yard — have been marked off. The standard pound is of platinum, and despite its weight, and the fact that the metal of which it consists is worth £40, in size it is no more than a cubic inch.

CLEANING GARMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

CLEANING GARMENTS. Almost any stain can be removed if rubbed at once with a mjxture of equal parts of ammonia, alcohol and water; after cleaning brush and dry, lay on the pressing table or board, tacking down the plaits or folds with j a fine thread; then cover the skirt with a piece of dark woollen goods, dampened thoroughly, but not wet, and. press with a moderately hot flat iron. There is a difference between pressing and ironing. The pressing is done with an iron which will not scorch, and the iron is moved slowly over the goods, pressing as heavily as necessary as the iron is moved. A brush should not be used for cleaning the dust, from silk, as .the bristles will in 'time cut the fabric. Wipe with a piece of velveteen; this will remove the dust without injuring the silk. Silk or ruffled skirts should be hung away upside down, as this prevents the sagging of the skirts from the weight of the ruffles from droop ing. Wash frocks should be put into boxes, trunks or drawers, as in ...

Marr, who had for several years occupied the position of railway station master at Stratford, and who has been transferred to Essendon. There was a good representative attendance, and the chair was occupied by Cr. W, H. Car ter, J.P,, who, in his opening remarks, said the gathering had been hurriedly arranged owing to the early departure from their midst of Mr Marr. The usual loyal toast having been honored, Mr Chas. Stewart proposed the toast of ' The Avon Shire Council.' The Council had done a certain amount of useful work, but he (Mr Stewart) considered there were several matters they could attend to, such as better lighting and draining of the town, and making secure the Avon bridge. The bridge was on the main road through Gippsland, and was in a bad state of repair. Cr. Carter, in responding, said that as a member of the Council he had al ways tried to do hi...

STREET CORNER STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

STREET CORNER STATISTICS. By- Jack Timmons. There used to be an old saw with decayed teeth to the effect that figures cannot lie. Several thousand years later it was discovered that liars could figure. Be that as it may, I carefully gath ered together a bunch of statistics that should interest the local public. The figures have been carefully fumi gated and most of the mistake germs have given up the struggle. As a horrible example, we will get down to business on a prominent cor ner, not more than a block from the post-office, and note the. people who pass by. What do we find? Here's the statistical reply: Every second man had a contro versy with his wife at the breakfast table, and 71.9 per cent, of them will go home to supper and make up; 28.1 per cent, will stay at the office mon keying with the books until midnight and then will throw the blame on their wives. . Every twenty-third man is a stran ger within the gates and tries to look as if he were native-born, and every ninety-...

LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up To the Girl Who Wants the "Right" to Propose. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 24 May 1912

LORETTA'S LOOKING-GLASS. She Holds It Up To the Girl Who Wants the 'Right' to Propose. Why don't you do it if you feel that way? Ask a man to marry you and stop talking about it as if it were some exalted, much-to-be-desired distinction from which the sex is held. There is no law against it. There never can be a law for it. The reason women do not propose —generally — is just because the wise ones have recognised a slight but never-absent-trait in the man. Wo man has let man do the asking be cause he likes her better when he can make himself believe that he sought her and singled her out and acquired her. But you, failing to note this man nish trait, or so unacquainted with the sex that you do not know it ex ists, clamor for the 'right'- to pro pose. Take it! Half the so-called rights were originally just appropriated privileges. Go on and ask a man to marry you. Oh, of course, you are afraid! Then, if you have not the courage to take the 'right' you ought not to have it. If I had t...
