LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. It may be (observes the "Lancet") that some enthusiastic and laborous German statistician has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the questian of length of life and its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if so. we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life--cheerful people-are also those to whom long est life is given. commonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can not make himself so. Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary burden to his relatives, miser able through the carking care of some bodily ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, if he had ...
A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
A Great Invention. Mr. Edison, who recently tried to take a holiday from work and is said to have become ill through boredom,. is apt to be rather crusty with visi tors to his workrooms when they ask too many questions. One dlay rather talkative Journal ist pointed at a model. "What's that?" he asked. Mr. Edison, who was getting very weary of the man's endless questions, replied blandly: "That, my dear sir., is a cradle which rocks by sound. You put tihe baby in and the louder it howls, the faster the cradle rocks!"
TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her heart was filled with longing to be out, If only for a few fleeting minutes, In the sun shine that kissed the street. "Could you manage, ma'am," she ventures, goaded into rebellion at last, "could you possibly manage to release me for a second or two?" "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver Twist asked foi more. "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. I wouldn't dawdle, really, I wouldn't. It is .the people passing and re-passing the win dow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I- " Her voice trembled tearfully Into si lence, but on the face of the female despot a saintly light appeared. "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have been too hard on you," she said softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"-she paused, and a cry of Joy burst from the girl's lips...

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sumn every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "WVochenzeitung," of Winterthur, in Switzerland, "To. drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There Is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.
AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. S. "r.+ ago tho South Austra anl (;oVtrrnent offerel a prize for h:, il ve;ction of a stone?gathertn:u nltciine to be used on sjrne of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivttion. The first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, but the two or three machines that were entered lai!cd to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The IHardwareman") that two Australians have Invente!d an im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new Idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. The rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snakp fashion, leaves the stones In a Atralght row. It Is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the Stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, after...
Archduke's Impressions of Australia. FRANZ FERDINAND OF AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
Archduke's Impressions of Australia. - FRANZ E':IlIN. \NDOFI ACt FRI.A. In a recent numtber of the "'"ort nightly Reviews" Mtis Edith Sellers gives us a very interesting aecount of, the archduke. Some eighteen years ago Franz Ferdinand made, iat tour of the world, eager to learn, eager to see for himself the dilfferent parts of the globe, to watch the working of foreign nations and foreign culture. S-A'ustria is for hint the nIIost beau tiful ai all lands, the finest and the noblest. And next to Austria-Au, tralia ! The fact that he was treat ed "seandalously" at Thursday Is land over a glass of beer on Sun day did ndt prevettt hint from liking Australia. We read :--'"On Thursday Island the fact was first brought home to him that, Imperial Highness though he be, he is no match for at Scotch woman in what concerns the keep ing of the Sabbath. While enjoy ing the view fron, the balcony of an inn there, one hot Sunday even ing, he -ordered a glass ot beer, whereupon the landlady inform...
THE CLYDE-CLAYTON FOOTBALL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
THE CLYDE-CLAYTON FOOT BALL MATCH. The football match at Clayton on Saturday last, betwesn the Clyde and Clayton clubs, pro vided plenty of sensation both for players and spectators. Al though both teams were playing well there was nothing excep tional in the game up to the end of the third quarter. However, just as the central umpire was about to bounce the ball for the last quarter a wild bull came on the scene and soon had the field to himself. An alarm was given as the animal was seen coming towards the ground and there was a general rush for safety. A number of the spec tators-there were about 300 scrambled over into a garden adjoining the ground while the others, with the players, sought safety in a small shed, about 12 feet square, into which about 100 persons crowded. After tossing the ball, which had been left on the ground, the bull turned his attention ta the shed, making two charges at the build ing. In his second rush he man -ged to get his head through but could get no...
NOTES ON THE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 13 May 1914
NOTES ON THE GAME. (6v NEMO ) Dame Fortune did not cast her winning smiles on our side on Saturday. Up to the last kick Berwick led by three points. 0. Espie's accident in second quarter lost the game far the Blue and Whites. Up to that time he had been playing spark ling football. No player on the Berwick side handled the ball or made better use of it than Howard Richard son. He always seemed to be where it was and plays his best when in a roving commission. He and Bob Munro were the best of a good lot. The latter marked well and in defence was always good. He is a great ac qo i iition to the team. There was no more disappoin ted man than Greig, who missed the train at Narre Warren and then biked up in time to be too! late. His absence was a severe loss to Berwick. Arthur Sherriff played a hard game and received extra atten- tion from his opponents. He was very sore after the match. He &nbsp; is full of grit and never com- plains. Fred Baxter's dislocated thumb still troubl...
CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered--say, about five or six weeks old-they will need td be put upon a different food regime, accord ing to the breed. These that are short of leg and very feathery will need plenty of rice, which, although it does not produce bone, does influ ence feather considerabiy, not alto gether because of its own nutritive qualities, eo much as It does by its ac tion in keeping the blood cool, and thus allowing the other foods given to be assimflated with case and com fort without the skin become dry and irritated, and thus acting as a deter rent upon ftatithr growth. If stimu lative and nourtshing foods are given, tihe blood becomes over-heated, and the ikln is apt to become dry and bars., and when this is tile case the feathers do not break nicely.
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. A laying hen requires daily about three to four ounces of food, accord ing to size. A bird in a wild state feeds on all kinds of food, many var ieties often in a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see a sickly wild bird. Poultry, if fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract soime disease or other, either directly from organs being thrown. out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any thing that may De going. Rations for laying hens should be made from bran. pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal,. crushed oats, chopped cabbage. chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other vegetables, fresh-cut green bone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc. Any four of these may be combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat. About twelve ounces per weight !r o the morning for ten laying fowls with about one pound to fifteen ounces of grain in the even ing,...
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may be the effect of a disease; if not, it will tend di. rectly to produce that disease (says a physician). Avarice, long indulged, destroys the normal balance of the brain, and at length shrivels it up by concentrating nourishment on the part which is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead in the heat of rage. Moroseness is very effectual in pro ducing disease. It acts specially up on the liver and the digestive organs. The seat of the affections is in the brain. This suffers first; afterwards, in course of time, the organs which it controls. To the vain man, one can only ex tend pity or contempt. Writing of vain-glory, Bacon said: "Glorious (i.e., boastful) men are the score of wise men, the abomination of fools, the idol of parasites, and the slaves of their own vaunts." But Bacon did not con fuse vain-glory with pride in Its best sense. Money can't buy the loyalty of a dog or th...
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So mulch has been said of late about scientitlc managtent : rn manufactur ing establishments that it may be de sirable to look ahead a little and en deavor to aee just what departments of productive activity are really In line to be managed according to the rmethods thus advocated. In general, it seems as If the liner of work capa ble of such organlnation and conduct are those from which. In the course of a comDaratively ahort time, the skilled mechanic may be almost wholly eliminated. Rtepetitive processes, operationa which may be described In instruci.:on cards or planned out wholly In ad vance by some one other than the in dividual by whom they are to be exe cuted, are the very ones from uhich the element of Individual judgment may be almost entirely removed, and therefore are next In line to be turned over to an inanimate and alm-tat en tirely automatic machine. The thblngs which the machine cannot do to ad vantage are those which are not per formed twice ...

THE BREEDING PENS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
THE BREEDING PENS. For the n:man vwho goeys in nolely for oggs, a forcing system of feeding is all right, but it is bound to be detri mental to ureeding stock, and this is why pullets intended for breeding purposes should not be given big quantities of nourishing soft food. If they are, it is almost certain that m'any of the eggs produced will be in fertile; at least some of them will be weakly fertitlised, and the chances of strong, robust chickens greatly re duced. It is not tihe quantity of eggs, but it is the quality of them from a breeding standpoint that those on the lookout for early chickens must study. It is tun times more important to thtem to get fifty eggs likely to hatch out stroig chickens than one hundred eggs that are almost worthless from a hatching standpoint.
Not for Grown-Ups. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
Not for Grown-Ups. lie Is one of those men who by the qxercise of great economy and the eizing of every opportunity have amassed a considerable fortune in a most unpromising district, and,he is. building himself a bungalow-building it with his own hands, that is. The other day, he was discussing the ar rangements.of the place with me, and s asked where he proDosed to put the bath. The question seemed to astonish him. "Bath?" he repeated. "We're not thinking of having a? bath. You see, it's not as if we had any children. There's only me and my wife." To avoid criticism, my boy, say nothing, be nothing, do nothing,
SECRETS' WEIRD EXITS. SOME CURIOUS INCIDENTS, WITH A WARNING TO THOSE WHOSE TONGUES RUN FREE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
SECRETS' WEIRD EXITS. SOME PCUItOU IN(ll)I7NTS, WITH A WA RNING "O Tl[I)HOSEI WHIOSE Tt)N(:UES RUN FREE. '"Men .arn as had as women for goa.ipist in public places." said the head of a Ihilliter Street firm the other day. He wis sore, and justly so, for, owing to careless gossip, he hald just lost a large sum oft mnoney: Two members of the firm; while lunching at a City restaurant, had discussed'l between Lthenoielves the de tails . of it big transaction in which the firui. was engaged, aund a third man at 'the niiext table had over heirrftt" what they were saying. Act ing promptly on the information. he had lought the shares, and net ted all the profit. A certain magnate with large in terests in nsouth Africa, had a visit from his brother-in-law, who talked xccitedlY of a new gold discovery. "Dim't talk so loudly," cautioned the other, for he knew that his ty pfist was in the next room.. iBut the mischief was done. The typist had overheard the name of the place where the new find ha...
DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF PULLETS. Those who are raising pullets for laying should note the food that is bout for making the cockerels fit for market, and that which Is best for de volopmtent of the laying pullets. The growing pullets should be fed entirely with a view to quick developments of the frame and egg-producing organs: therefore, it stands to reason that thu food which is best for the laying hen is right for pullets. There is nothing better for growth than milk. bran, a little cooked meat given constantly, and for the evening meal sound oats and wheat. Food shbpuld never be given in excess, for not only is the food wasted, but the digestive organs of the birds become weakened. Miaize should be sparingly fed, especially during the sumnmer months, as it has thie tendency to cause internal fat, which Is on- of toe greatest draw backs to egg-producing.
Not a Banquet. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 20 May 1914
Not a Banquet. A story Mr. Taft tells Is about a number of old men who, having been schoolboys together, thought it would be an excellent plan to have a New. Year banquet together in memory of old times. The most enthusiastic "old boy" among them went to the banquet ex pecting to have a pleasant evening. talking over schooldays, but he was bitterly disappointed. One man had a troublesome hesrt, and he would talk of nothing else; another had gout; another had a bad liver; another was worried about his kidneys; another's indigestion mono polised his attention; and so on, each had trouble with some organ or other. When he returned home somebody asked the enthusiastic man how he had enjoyed the banquet. "Banquet!" he exclaimed bitterly. "It wasn't a banquet, it was an organ recital!"
