FROM NEWS SHEET TO PENCIL HOLDERS. WHAT HAPPENS TO WASTE PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
FROM NEWS SHEET TO PENCIL HOLDERS. WHAT HAPPENS TO WASTE PAPER. Every day new ,uses are being found for waste paper, and-a ccr ious thing-although new' paper is being turned out by the ton every day, yet little of it is ever wasted. After it . has disappeared from our houses in the shape of old newspap ers &c.. it returns to us again as ash-trays , pencil-holders, paper weights, photo-frames, and a hundred and one other things. Most of the old newspapers are gathered up and converted into mar ketable paper again, and some of them go in with the old rags to make various kinds of commercial material ; but outside of these two lines of industry the paper is made into useful articles of a wonderful nature. Newspapers are made from spruce pulp, and by a steaming pro cess they can be reconverted into a similar pulp again. This pulp is not so good as in the first instance, and no one has yet found a way to make it possible to use it over again for newspaper work. However, it is "ch...

ANCHORING ON ICEBERGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
ANCHORING ON ICEBERGS. It has been found that the currents round thr coast of Newfoundland make at times a wide ditdcrence in the direction of the drift of icebergs Sand that of the fiat or pan ice, which having no great depth is governed in, its motions by the surface currents and the winds. The iceberg, the larger part of "which are submerged to a great depth, follow only the movement of the ocean water as a whole, and are uninfluenced by the winds. Thus a huge iceberg may often be FeCn majestically maintaining its slow advance in opposition to the wind and across the general motion of the field of fiat ice surrounding it. The sealers often take advantage of this fact by mooring their vessels to an iceberg to prevent their ship from drifting to leeward. The movement of these great mountains of ice is practically irresistible.

PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
PHOTOGRAPHIC NOTES. A good deal of interest has been c-eated by the publication in one of the most. popular photogrraphic week lies of a method of intensfication by re-developement. s It is well-known that the usual methods of intensify ing the photographic image are not always reliable, and frequently even result in irreparable damage to the negetive, while several intensifying formulae involve the use of poison ous chemicals.

The nega tare to be treated is first of all bleached in a solution made up as follows : Dichromate of potash .... Ten grains Hydrochloric acid ............Five grains Water to make ............One ounce.

WEEDS AND THEIR USES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
WEEDS AND THEIR USES. -0--~-- Professor Henslow, at page 167 of "The Story of the Wild Flowers", says : "Mr Darwin admitted that he had.neglected to study these insign ficant looking weed-like plants, and we must reverse his dictum and look upon them with a more favourable eye, and not be mislead by what may seem to us to be "fine" and "beautiful" and therefore must nec essarily be the best thing for plants to be." This is precisely what the Darwin inan botanists have done and persist ed on doing. But everything has been tearing against them for years now. They thought that as what they call cross-fertilization, of which gardeners and nurserymen make such use, be cause by it they can prodtce "finer individuals" as Edward Step signiti cantly says, has such results, it must be the best and greatest-as Shakespeare says. "surpassing nat ure." But even in nature we know that cross-fertilization, which means the conveyance of. the pollen from the plant of one sex to the plant,of another s...

A HYMN OF HATE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
A HYMN OF HATE. I hate Actresses. They get on my nerves. There are the Adventuresses, The Ladles with Lavender Pasts:. They wear gowns that show all thiir emotions. And they simply can't stop undulat ing. The only stage properties they reqt:ire Are a box of cigarettes and a package of compromising letters. Their big scene invariably takes place in the hero's apartment. They are always hanging around be hind screens And overhearing things about the heroine. They go around clutching their tem ples And saying. Would to heaven they were good Would to heaven they were! Then there are the child Actresses Who should be unseen and not heard. They go around telling people about Ileaven As if they were special correspond ents. They are always climbing up on inno cent bystanders And asking them why they look so sad; They eternally bring their fathers and mothers together. Which is always an error of Judgment They never fail to appear in their nightgowns And then kneel down beside the or chestr...
