Return of the Rubber Bcom. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
Return of the Rubber Bcom. (By A. STAINS MANDERJS.) It is really a wonderful substance, is rubber. Consider what it is int the beginning-just milk flowing fromnt the trees that have been slash ed by the native workers. Yet fromt this liquid we get a substitce of enormous strength. durability, anl elasticity. I always likei rtibber to cheese. It is milk to begin with; it is made to curdle like milk-by throwing salt into it-and. like cheese, you get it in. all shapes. sizes, colours, and qnalities. It we don't actually eat rubber, it is doubtful if we could now live without it. "It is extraordinary when one comes to think of the enormous. number of uses to which rubber is put. We find It not only in our own homes at every .turn, but we find it on our way from our hotnos' to our business; we see rubber at every stage, and when we. get to our business we find it in our- ollTres. Certainly we cannot live without rubber, and I tnt not sure that we are able to die without the as sistance o...

FOOTBALL. Our footballers made their first i trip away on Saturday last when they visited Pakenham. With the exception of Greig, wbo un fortunately missed the train, they were well represented, and Waoke, Faragher, Randall and Fritzlaff filled the places of Greig, Escott, Avard and Fleer. Pakenham had a good team: the most noticeable absentees being one of the Lambourns and N. and W. Webster. The game was evenly contes ted. Pakenham started with a rush and put on. six points to Berwick's three in the first quarter. H. Richardson played nicely to A. Sherriff who missed badly. Fred. Fritzlaff got a goal but the umpire failed to record it In the second quarter 0. Espie. from a mark in the crusn, scored a beautiful goal, followed by Arthur Sherriff from a diffi cult angle. Pakenham woke up and H. Taylor and J Cowell each score], making the scores -Pakenham 2.1 to 2.3. Just before the bell O. Espie sprained his ankle, and for the last half was scarcely able to stand.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. When bofllrg Dpotatoes, add fust a little sugar, asz well as salt. They are far more floury than It only salt is added. The white of a raw egg applied to a burn or scald will prevent inflam mation, be soothing and cooling, and relieve the stinging pain. When a fish-kettle is not available for boiling the fish, place an old plate at the bottom of the saucepan and tie the fish in a piece of muslin. To test mussels, add an onion when cooking them. Should the onion turn black, the mussels should not be eat en. as it is a sign that they are not good. If your oven will not brown your pastry as well as you would like, put the cakes or tarts on the upper tray, and throw a little sugar on tihe floor of tire oven. When you suspect worms at the roots of your plants, place a few un used matches, heads downwards, in the pots. The sulphur will kill tihe worms rand the plants will be quite healthy agdain.
