NOTHING SERIOUS. OUT ON THE MAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
NOTHING SERiOUS. OUT ON THE MAKE. "Fore !" Just a moment too late the golfer gave warning. The ball had struck the shabby wayfarer who was passing by the golf course, and rendered him unconscious for a few moments. When he recovered he found the cut prit bending anxiously over him and.: apologising. Moreover, in his soiled palm there nestled much money. "Thankee, sir !" he said, wheezily, as his gloating eyes lingered on the compensation. "And when will ye be playin' again, sir ?"
MASSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
MASSAGE. g Massage is the name given to a method of mechanical manipulation which, applied to the body, causes the reabsorption of waste products and stimulates the flow of blood and lymph through the parts manipulated Contary to general supposition, it is not a newly discovered treatment, but one of great antiquity. Descriptions of it, or a method closely allied to it, are found in ancient Chinese and Hin doo books, and it is certain that the Greeks and Romans used it. For many hundreds of years it was hardly used at all in Europe, but has lately come into custom again, and has un doubtedly proved to be of great value in many ailments. Great care must be taken not to apply massage, except in cases similar. to those in which it is known to have been beneficial. In fact, it should not be carried out at all without the sanction of a doctor. There are many cases in which it is harmless and dangerous-and it would be as well for those who wish to ap ply it to have a list of the diseases ...
HOW SHIPS SINK. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
HOW SHIPS SINK. Nearly every class or design of ves sel sinks in a particular way, For in stance, the old type of single-bottom steamer, with few or no bulkheads that is, in the modern sense of the term-almost invariably founders on more or less of an even keel, which means that they sink level, and not with their bow or stern up in the air. This is accounted for by the fact that at whatever point the water may enter, it practically finds its own level, as there are no subdivisions to obstruct it. Now, in the case of a modern ves sel, which is built with numerous sub-djvisions, it invariably happens that she founders with her bow or stern high out of the water ; or else she sinks with a heavy list, or cant, to one side or the other. The reason for this is that the bulkheads- prevent water which enters the vessel from fiznding its level; consequently, when one particular portion of the ship. is full of water while the remainder is practically watertight, that part which is water-lade...

THE FIRST V.C. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
THE FIRST V.C. Nparly three hundred Victoria Cros ses have been awarded since the be ginning of the war. The first V.C. was won by. a sailor. In the Crimean war it became of the utmost import ance to destroy the enemy's stores. With this in view the town of Genit chi was bombarded, and during the course of the action seventy-three ves sels were destroyed, with all the stores of corn. When the smoke clear ed away, however, it was discovered that several magazines had not caught fire, and three valiant men, Lieutenant-Backley, Lieutenant Bur goyne-who was afterwards to meet his death on the ill-fated Captain and Mr. John Roberts, went ashore, fired the stores with the burning ends: of their cigars, and got back to the boat. They were each awarded the Victoria Cross. - Lieutenant Buckley being the first to receive that honour.
INFLAMED EYELIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
INFLAMED EYELIDS. A simple treatment for sore or in flamed eyelids consists in bathing them four or five times a day with warm boracic lotion. At night time place a little yellow oxide of mer cury between the lids. This not only has the effect of restoring the lids to a normal state, but in the process of healing them it prevents the very un-, pleasant sticking together of the lids which is apt to occur at night time.
RED TAPE IN THE FIRING LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
RED TAPE IN THE FIRING LINE. "History repeats itself" (writes a correspondent at the front to the "Evening Standard," E.) "The whole Empire has laughed at Capt. Bairns father's sketch of 'Colonel Shrapnel' rung up on the telephone in the midst of a tremendous artillery strafe to answer the important query-'How many tins of strawberry jam and how many of raspberry did you get last Friday?' Well, the other day we were having a severe time in our battery, and the Boche was sending 'coal boxes' over with unwonted lavish ness. Two of our guns had already been knocked out. The senior officer was called to the telephone-'Hallo ! What ! I can't hear you !' At last, through the infernal din, he heard the adjutant's voice-'Please send at once the name and address of your next-of-kin, in case you are killed. There is that special form to fill, and our office has not received these par ticulars.' "

SIBERIA'S VAST UNTOUCHED WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
SIBERIA'S VAST UNTOUCHED WEALTH. Siberia is destined one day to be come the richest country in the world for it has a natural wealth so diver sified,.and as yet almost untouched, that it has no rival in the world. How vast this wealth is is described by A. Kammer in "La Nature." Be fore the war Siberia was producing from 1,000,000 to 1,309,000 tons of flour year. As a grazing country it has no limits, and it exports large quantities of leather, tallow, and but ter. Its forests are almost inexhau tible, and it supplies furs to all the world. Its mineral wealth can only be guessed at, for the greater part of the country has never been prospect ed. But there are several enormous deposits of oil.

A SHOOTING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
A SHOOTING STORY. A farmer tells a story of his shooting. Says he : "I was very much troubled with these winged thieves (the birds) for they made terrible havoc among the corn. I put scarecrows up till I was tired, so I took my gun, loaded with powder and pellets, and you should have seen the quantity I brought down in one day. One morning my boy rushed indoors and yelled : " 'Dad, hundreds of birds among the corn !' '"I took my gun, put in the powder, but could not find the shot, so I thrust in a handful of tacks, and off I ran. Getting to the corn I yelled pretty hard, and up flew the birds in to a tree. Being excited, I fired, and behold every bird was nailed to the tree, with their wings flapping as if flying. Struck with the sight. I stood watching them, when the blessed things pulled up the tree and- few away with it, leaving me in disgust."
WHY NOT SQUARE MONEY ? [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
WHY NOT SQUARE MONEY ? A movement is on foot for the in troduction of square money into Eng land. Whether it will come to any thing remains to be seen ; but the idea certainly has its advantages. What would these) advantages be ? Well, for one thing, the Mint authori ties would save an appreciable am ount of packing, from the well-known fact that square money will fit into a square box with less waste of space than will round. This also applies to the case of all large traders and ban kers, who have to despatch large quantities of bullion every month. The private individual will probably be more interested in the matter when he hears that the gross total of mo ney lost every year in England through coins dropped amounts to many thousands 9f pounds. This is largely due to the fact that round coins, when they fall to the ground, are apt to roll into unlikely places, from which they are never recovered. A square coin would lie dead where it pitched. In China coins are pierced with a sq...
2000 MILES WITHOUT A PENNY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
2000 MILES WITHOUT A PENNY. A Like many other civilian soldiers of the great British Army of to-day, I have been in some queer places, seen some queer things, and had some queer experiences, but I think I can lay claim to an adventure that is somewhat unique, even in these times when the sensation of to-day is the commonplace of to-morrow. A corporal of a well-known kilted regiment and I actually travelled from the Peninsula (to me there's only one Peninsula, and that Galli poli) home to "Blighty"-right into the heart of the Highlands-without a brass farthing in our pockets, yet at the end of the journey we actually had twopence each, although we nei ther begged, borrowed, nor stole. After five months on the Peninsula, where no pay was drawhn-hecsuse there was nothing on which to spend money, I was attacked with dysentery and I met my kilted pal in the next bed to me in the hospital in Alexan dria. We were friends from the first. DREW A BLANK. For some reason or other, while we wero...
WHY A CAT'S EYES GLOW IN THE DARK. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
WHY A CAT'S EYES GLOW IN THE DARK. Not satisfied with the old explana tion that a cat's eyes glow in the dark because they catch and concen trate every little glimmer of light that may be about, scientific men have been making experiments recently to ascertain if there may not be some other explanation, for the eyes glow when there is no lighb" at all. This is true of the eyes of many animals; in fact, it is true of most nocturnal creatures, including birds and in sects. The first man to point to what seems to be the , itmye reason was Prof. Bugniou, of Switzerland, who suggested that perhaps invisible rays -such ras'.the. ultra violet or infra red-were transformed by some chem ical action into visible rays. at the in stant of reflection, from the eyes. Now two Costa Rican professors, G. Michaud and J. F. Tristant, report their experiments from. the effect of ultra-violet rays on the eyes of men and arAmals. They filtered a ray of sunlight through a special filter com posed of a cel...
