Mrs. GABBING'S GRIEVANCES. Narrated to Arnold Golsworthy. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 May 1917
Mrs. GABBING'S GRIEVANCES. Narrated to Arnold Golsworthy. It's a strange thing to me that some body can't go and tell the Gov'mint that they're makin' theirselves per fectly ridklus about our railway trains. For the last ten years have I made a habit o goin' over-once a fortnlight to see my sister Ann at Mud borough. her whose husband is now at the Front. There used to be a nice-spoke your- man at our hookin' office, but when I got there last week there was only a girl behind the window. May be she'd call herself a young lady. though not what I should regard as such, me flattering myself that I know a lady when I see one-even if it's only in me lookin' glass. I puts me shillin' on the ledge of the window. and I says. brisk like. "Return to .Mudborough. please. Quick's you like!" Then the young woman to which I have referred puts her head round the corner and says. "Righto, missus. But what's your hurry?" "Hurry." I says. "'Why, the train's due at ten-fifteen, and it s that now." "No...

A visitor. stopping at the front gate to ask for her. heard a Ioud commotion in the rear. "Yes. she's home." replied friend husband, who. in the life partnership. is nil. "but she's busy."

What Worried Him. .\1rs. MacHIaggis was visiting her husband. Dougal. in hospital Dougal, looking rather like a bundle of washing. lay back in bed, suffering in silence like the hardy Scot that he was. "An' to think that my Duggy should fa' doon the lift-shaft. richt from: the top to the bottom o' a seven-story bulldin'. Hoots, hut it's a mur-rcy you're no kilt. my lad!" "Ay, it is that!" said Dougal wear ily. ?' "While ye was fallin'. Duggy." mur mured his pretty little wife. putting her head a trifle closer to his. "did ye no think of your wee wilte. all aIo0e in the hoose?" "I only mind thlnkin' once, and that was as I hurtled past the fourth floor." "And what did ye think. Duggy, lad T'" "I minded that I'd left me coat on the sivinth floor with a saxpence In the inside pocket!"
The End in View. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 May 1917
The End in View. Donald McLanny, as behoved his reputation as the strong man and athlete in the district. entered his name for all the events in the .village spjrts; and. as a matter of fact. was a hot favorite for most of them. In short, great things were expect ed of him. but expectations were hard ly realised. The first event on the programme was the quarter-mile; and of eight runners Donald finished eighth. "Donald, Donald," said a fellow Scot, "why did ye no run faster?" The strong man sneered. *"Run faster'" he said contemptu oasly. "An' me reservin' meself for the tagpipe competition!"

Hler name is Jenny Porchet, and she lives in Switz erland. She is governor and warder in the prison of Aigle, in the Rh!ne valley. A good many years ago she married the chief warder of the prison, and soon proved to be a helpmeet Indeed, for. being a strongly-built woman, and with proper notions of discipline, she made as good a gaoler as her hus band, and more than once did his work when he was away. When he died the authorities ask ed her to take his place permanently, and she accepted. All the year around the Algle prison contains from twelve to twenty male prisoners, sentenced to terms of im prisonment ranging from three months to three years, and although the woman-gaoler has no assistants, she has never had any trouble with the prisoners, Strict disciplinarian though she is, the woman-gaoler has the kindliest of hearts, and ta...

Lots of people grumble because their birds fail to till the eagg-basket at this time of the year. antid. bent upon making them do so, they use all sorts of strange anti often injurious mixtures, spices andl heating food. whlich are more liable to upset the egg-mlnaking machine thtan to start it working smoothly.

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XVIII.) DOOM OF THE HOHENZOLLERNS [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 May 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XVIII.) DOOM OF THE HOHENZOLLERNS Is the Ilouse of thle lohenzollerns doomed? Even in Germany it is said that the Crown Prince, owing to his character, would not be welcome as German Emperor, while the Kalser has been weighed in the balance by the Allied nations andl found wanting in every particular in which a sover eign may expect to win and hold the respect of a clvilised world. Ite has broken his word, treaties have been no more than waste paper to him, and in all questions where national honor is concerned, he has calmly followed the cold-blooded example of his an cestor, misnarmedi Frederick the Great, who laidl down the law thait might was always right. One form ot frightfulness follows another In this awful war. It started when,. before tile war began, tile German Chancel lor, Dr. Bethlmann-tlhlweg, stated that a solemn treaty was no mlore than a scrap of paper. A felw days afterwards frightfulness developed on a large scale when thile German Ar...
Very Convincing. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 May 1917
Very Convincing. As he disliked motor-cars, a cohn try squire always kept good horses. Recently he bought a particularly handsome mare, and a few days later asked his groom what he thought of the new arrivaL "She's a fine-looking animal, si[r," replied the man, "but I'm afraid she's a hit touchy." "Why do you think so?"' questioned the squire, "She-doesn't seem to take to no one, sir, She can't bear me to go In to her box to groom her." "Oh, she'll settle down in a few days," the squire reassured him. "Everything's strange to her, you know. I don't think there's much wrong with her temper." "Nor didn't I at first, sir," replied the groom. "But, you see, she's kick ed me out o' that there box twice al ready, and when you come to think orf it that's very convincin'." Sixty thousand people in Ireland spe5ak Iri?-sh only. A traveller can journey around the world in fifty days.

Industrial Co-operation As Applied to Flax and Linen, and our own District. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 May 1917
Ilndustrial Co-operation As Applied to Flax and Linen, and our own District. 'It may not be out of place to say a word or two- on the meaning of co operation. Briefly stated, it means working together. Words which we frequently use, often lose their original meaning. To designate a trading com pany which is a business well or badly managed by officials is not co-operation in its highest sense. Co-operation should not be entirely for the financial return but for the betterment of the unit. As each is strengthened by his neighbors betterment, so-i: the end the :whole is benerfited by the part. In tlhe Berwick shire alone there are quite a suffticient number of people who, if tlhey were working in the same di rection, towarda the development of industries atnd businesses suitable to the people and place, might increase the productiveness of the land and also the number of holdings. At the present moment it may not seem possible, but Ruskin, in 18i7, in letters written to a Mr Thos. Dix...
