A VOICE FROM THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
A VOICE FROM iTHE PAST.. General Alexander von Kluck. who was condemned to military oblivion :or bringing disaster onGerman-arms at the Mar?a. and. ha&.hardly been heard of since, raises an. indiscreet voice in "Der Tag" in favor of that victory which he himself threw away when Paris was almost. within his i grasp: 'The war to the knife now demands as it! price every ounce of our s:rength- The people must sacrilce themselves for their King.

WOMEN AS WAR NURSES. WHY THEY SEEK THE HORRORS [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
WOMEN AS WAR NURSES. WHY THEY SEEK THE HORRORS The impulsive desire of so many young and especially unmarried women to witness the pains and horrors of battlefields and hispitals is not a-new phase of women's char acter. It is, explains Dr. William Howard in a paper on the subject, as old as motherhood. The craze to rush into what is dis tressing, startling to the sensative individual, is a symptom of tempor ary instability. When it is done with a desire to attract the attention of the opposite sex, even if it meets with stern disapproval, we are as sured, it is a form of pure unadult erated hysteria. And this statement need not offend the young woman trying to get into the gowns and caps of war nurses ; for if the nervous and mental activ ity which is the cause of this form of hysteria were trained and, control led it could be put to very valuable uses, When a young woman has been brought up in a life of luxury and ease the rough and distressing scenes of real life are unknown to h...

ELECTRIC WAR TITANS. THE FIRST MODEL ASTONISHED THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
ELECTRIC WAR TITANS. THE FIRST MODEL ASTONISHED THE NATIVES. It is highly improbable, as we have said before, that military "Tanks" will stop where they are. The in vention is too revolutionery not to excite the interest of engineering ex perts, and, moreover, the field is so sure and promising that it must at tract the creative. The ironclad com menced its career in much about the same way. It was just an old wood en hulk cased in the railway rails of the day. The Tank is merely an armoured plus-motor-lorry on cater pillar wheels, which were originally devised for agricultural purposes. Here is an invention, due to an American electrician, Mr. Vern Pieper. He has devised a wonderful walking giant ! At the present moment, he has completed only the model, but the real giant-a nine foot marvel of steel plates, knuckles, and cog'wheels -is now in the process of being for ged. The movement in the feet and legs in the little model is so perfect that his steps appear natural; he may be st...

"MAIMED SOLDIERS REPAIRED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
I "MAIMED SOLDIERS REPAIRED HERE." It is a common sight at Rochamp ton Hospital, for visitors there to see a man who has lost both a leg and an arm enjoying a game and shaping very nicely. They have leg-drill in the garden, too-a pathetic affair, when you con sider that these fifty fine-looking men are each minus a leg. Yet, al though they drill in fine form, and presently, when they have got a lit tle more accustomed to the feel of the thing, nobody will be able to tell the difference. The arm-and-leg shops are hives of, skilful industry, and the limbs turn ed out are marvels of efficiency. Of course, it is a more serious thing to lose an arm than a leg, especially if the arm is the right ; but a man will freuently learn to write with his left whilst waiting for his artificial arm. These are so well made that the "hand" can pick up nicely, and car ry things, too, whilst its owner can take it off and replace it with a sub stitute specially designed for using various tools, and it ca...
Beaconsfield New Road. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
Beaconsfield New Road. It has been decided to make a change in regard to the new road at Beaconsfield. The railway authorities have refused to grant the entrance sought 'on the passenger side of the station, and it is now proposed to purchase a small piece of land from the Foundling Home and get another approach t' the station. Cr Martin b.ought the matter under the notice of the council on Saturday, and Crs W. a'Beckett and Bailey were appointed to interview the Foundling Home com mittee on the subject. Mr W. S. Keast, M.L.A., has for warded the following letter, received from the railway department, to the council : " I am directed to intimate that in notifying this department that a corp tract will soon be let for a new road and bridge over Cardinia creek, with the object of bringing traffic into the passenger side of Beaconsfield station, the local progress association has re quested the department to provide an entrance where the new road meets the railway boundary, and to cons...

IS HATRED USEFUL? VITAL QUESTION OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
IS HATRED USEFUL? VITAL QUESTION OF THE DAY. We see more discussions these timed on the value of hatred than ever be fore in history. In his "Studies in Insect Life and other Essays" Dr. A E. Shipley, Master of Christ Col lege, Cambridge, thus examines the question : Since the beginning of the war I have met men whose reputations are world-wide, humane, kindly profes sors, who have probably never in their long lives killed anything more dangerous than a house-fly, men who have reputations for fairness and justice which might have made them judges, yet they have stated that they would gladly assist in hang ing a fellow-creature who owned cer tain newspapers, the views of which failed to accord with their own, and yet a man they had never met and could not have known. Religious hatred is equally bitter and equally to be regretted. How far hatred is effective in war time,- and how far it can he effective ly worked up by , systematic effort, is difficult to say. I don't honestly think i...
THE SCOT AND WHAT HE STANDS FOR. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
THE SCOT AND WHAT HE STANDS FOR. Two Turkish pashas from far separated provinces of the Ottoman Empire met each other some years ago at a Court function. Presently they saw their opporturnity and took it. "Weel, Aleck, ma mannie, it's a sLht f'r sair een tae see ye ! Dae ye mind that brow alley-taw ye gied me lang syne? Hech, man, I'm juist langin' f'r the heather an' ingle-nuik!" "Ay Jamie: and d'ye mind the muckle troot Aw teckled i' the bur-r-n the day y'r mither wis mendin' y'r breeks? Eh, man. Jamie ma hairt's sair f'r the auld days!" Scotland in a fez, but Scotland still? Someone says that the world it self-the whole -round earth-is only a sort of glorified Scotland Yard. It might be added that, if such he the case, the Scots are all inspec -tors. The Scot who could settle down as a "common or garden"-or area-bobby, is not born. SALT OF THE EARTH. The Scot is at home anywhere, yet never truly at home except at home. He takes Scotland with him wherever he settles; he never real...

No Use for Geography. Little ltosie, though well up in most of her studies, has an inveterate dis like to geography. Her teacher, made impatient, sent to Ilt"'.'s mother a note requesting her to see that the girl studied her lesIson; but the next day showed not tie slightest improvement. "Did your mother read the note. itosic?" asked the teacher. "Yes. mna'amn," was the reply. "What did she say?" "1My mother said that she didn't know geography, an' she got married; but you know geography, an' you didn't get married."

Humorous Stories by the Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
Humorous Stories by the Parson. In a place of worship the proper and usual attitude Is one of reverence. Yet at any moment something may happen which, without the slightest irrever ence being Intended, may set people's lipe twitching and their eyes twink ling. Not intrequently the twitching and the twinkling progress to uncon trollable laughter. Here are some smiles. Judge them not hardly; The Preacher: "Yes, brethren, I want you to listen! (Hfe was preach ing about the voice of conscience, from Cor., 1, 12). Let us now and here, in a moment of silence, listen!" It was dramatic and effective. But into the silence there broke the big gest, noisiest sneeze-an absolute ex plosion-ever heard! It is to the credit of the congrega tion and their power of restraint that they only smiled. Once I was about to call some banns of marriage. These always interest people, and the congregation were quite still. I turned over the leaves of the banns book, and- "Could you do wi' a couple o' rabbits t...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Sour milk can be made good use of in pies. pItldlngs. and cakes, as it renders pastry lighter. If a eood pinch of salt is used in milk ptiddings, and all kinde of fruit. it will make a great saving in sugar. \Vihen brooms begin to wear, cut the bristles level again, andt the brush w:Il do its work as well as ever. To keep milk sweet in hot weather ::dd twio teaspoonfuls of limewater whicv: is henelicial rather than other wire--to every pint. If vou want a jelly to set quickly. lith, tbit plan is to dissolve the gela tine in a :amall quantity of hot water, and thell add cold water to make up tile amoulnt.

Reinforcements, and How They are Used. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
Reinforcements, and How 1 They are Used. When a unit is formed for active service, the original members have a number of identity. These num bers, commencing from number one. run to the full strength of the unit on embarkation. Even in the first three months of a regiment's life, so many casualties are effected due to illness and accident, that it flnde It self below former strength. That strength must always be maintained to its original number. To do so. a draft of men styled "Reinforce ments" is taken on the regiment's roll to complete its full fighting strength. The reinforcements are usually men who enlist later than the original members, and, as their training reaches its completion, they are sent in drafts to what is in military terms a base detail camp. There they train in every detail to befit them for the day when they will have their initia tion of fire with the regiment or bat talion to which they are drafted. Pacifists and others who prejudice recruiting by using that c...

"You're double-facedl" shouted the interrupter at the political meeting; "you're double-faced, that's what you are!" "It's quite evident," remarked the candidate, "that my friend is not double-faced, or he would not have come out to-night with the face he has on him."
Something Like a Warrior. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 September 1917
Something Like a Warrior. The lady vifetor at one of the base hospitals greatly annoyed some of the patients by her persistent questioning -and "asked for" some of the answers she received. "Did you ever kill a German?" she asked a wounded Tommy. "Why, missus," he replied, "the mat tresses we sleep upon are stuffed with the whiskers of the Germans I bav" killed." Great was the excitement In the village when word came that Bill Miggins, one of the local heroes, had won the V.C. At once the vicar hurried off to tell Bill's aged grandmother and con gratulate her. "Got the veesee, 'as he?" said the deaf old lady. "Well, I 'opes as 'e won't be as bad wi' it as 'e wor wi' the measles! Our Bill alUus wor like that. If there was anything catching goin' about, Bill was sure to get it!"
