Judging at the Royal Show. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

Judging at the Royal Show. iMr Jno. Henry, who acted as a judge of horses and cattle at so many differ ent shows in Victoria, is retiring from the judging ring owing to ill health, and the following correspondence has passed between him and the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria: " Doneraile " Pakenham - 16th J.ily, 1917. To the Secretary Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. * Dear Sir,-I 'have to thank your council for the great compliment they have paid me in again appointing me as a judge, but regret very much that owing to failing health I must decline. I do so the more reluctantly because having acted so frequently during the past 25 years, the pleasant relations that have always existed between your council and myself and, I think I may say, in nearly every case the exhibitors, were so agreeable to me that I would rather continue than sever them, but my doctor says " ;:o." Yours faithfully, J. HENRY. The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. Collins. House, Collins St...

Making It Up. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

Making it Up. Husband and wife had a little tiff.; He burled his nose in a morning pa per, while she gazed out of the win dow with persistent intentness. Thus an hour and thirty minutes passed. A lady passed by. Husband dropped his paper and looked up at hei ad miringly. "Ah!" he said. "that's a fine wo man. And a widow, too. Donl't yoll think she's handsome?" "Yes, rather. You seem to like widows." "Indeed I do. They're charming." Husband evidently thought this would pique his partner. But it did not. "Alfred." said she, tenderly, placing her hand softly on his arm. "Alfred, I was in the wrong a little while ago. when I became angry with you, and I'm sorry. so sorry. Will you forgive your little wifey?" "Certainly. Don't say another word about it." "And will you grant a little request I have to make of you, hubby. dear?" "Of course. Anything that lies in my power." "You say you think widows are charming?"

Tips for the Sleepless. Useful Cures for Insomnia. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

Tips for the Sleepless. Useful Cures for Insomnia. "I'm losing the only real gift I ever possessed-the power of sleep." Those were the words of Gladstone towards the end of his career, and there is no doubt that the reason he was able to do such a wonderful am ount of mental work during his long active life was on account of his power to fall asleep any time. The most effective way to induce sleep under ordinary circumstances is to lie on the face with mouth and nose so placed that breathing causes some effort. This effort prevents one's thoughts from dwelling on any partic. ular trouble, and the monotony of conscious breathing causes drowsi ness, and one soon desires to turn over on the side, and then sleep gen erally follows. Drugs of any kind are rarely any good for ordinary Insomnia; .to seek these things for a temporary cure often ends in causing chronic mala dies. Too often we act as if we do not know what sleep is, and put it off until there seems no longer any excuse for sta...

THE PERFECTLY TRUE. PARABLE OF* THE. SEVEN. EGYPTIANS. Now a multitude- of Egyptians jour neyed into Anzac, even nigh unto the seats of the mighty. And when they had came unto the place whereon it was written they should rest, they took counsel one- with the other, say ing, "Lo, behold, we have-no light." Then-one, more bold that the rest, journeyed forth to gather fuel that peradventure had been washed to the beach and had escaped the claws of Alppollyon, the Camp Commandant And after he had searched awhile he raised his eyes and praised Allah. For near to the waters he found a tin can having a wick, like unto the lampe of his forefathers, even.from the days of the Prophet. And stralghtway he returneth to his complanions, saying: "Rejoice with me, for Allah has been bountiful and I have had good for tune." Thus saying, he kindled the lamp, but it would not burn. And he kindled it a second time, but still the lamp refueed to give her light. Then they cast it into the ire, and they a...

DEVELOPMENT OF THE OPTICAL GLASS INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

DEVELOPMENT OF THE OPTICAL GLASS INDUSTRY. Though photography le not respon sible for the introduction of optical glass, it affects its manufacture to a considerable extent, as it imposed special conditions that otherwise would not have been'considered. The all-important dietinction between op tical and other ordinary glass is not merely one of composition, but one of quality as well; it must be homo gencous and free of striae. The method of producing: such glass was discovered about 1807, andi its suc cessful manufacture accomplished about 1814. Guinand, a Swiss. being credited with the first conception o! the method, and Fraunhofer, a Bavar ian, with the development of its ap plication. Through Guinand's eons the cecret of the method of manufac ture found its way into France, an,: eventually into England. The mann facture of optical glass in the forme country began to be important albo' 1829. and in England (by Chance Bro thiers) about 18.18, and those two coon tries rapidly obtai...

He Knew One Better. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

He Knew One Better. In one of London's suburbs some time ago, a young doctor, whose prac tice was not very great, sat reading away a lazy summer afternoon. lie had been reading some considerable time when his chauffeur suddenly made his appearance at the door. "Doctor," he said, "them there boys: is stealing your green apples again. shall I chase 'em off?" The doctor frowned, and then after a moment's hard thinking, replied: "No!" To be a good listener is perhaps quite as desirable an, art as that of being a good talker. Interest and sympathetic attention are always a delicate cour tesy. It draws out the beet that oth ers have to give, cheers and comforts those in trouble, sets the timid at ease, and wine and holds friendship. First Lieutenant: By Jove! as we were going over the river on the plank bridge it gave way, and the men fell in. Second Lieutenant: What did you do? First Lieutenant: I ordered them to fall out, of course. Lady Exhibitor (at the close of a Baby Show): But, goo...

Would Learn When He Was Dead. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

Would Learn When He Was Dead. They were Church dignitaries--let us call them Bishops--of opposing faiths. Their zeal for their respect ive tenets had led them Into hitter press controversy extending over a long period, but they had never met. It was at ;L Government House party that a pressman who had met both took one by the arm and, wheeling him around, said: "Permit me, your Grace, to intro duce to you my friend, the Bishop of Then he stood back to watch the subsequent proceedings. For a moment or two the situation was an awkward one. Then one of the dig nataries cleared his throat. "Haw--'m pleased to meet you; very pleased.

KNOW LITTLE OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

KNOW LITTLE OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY. It is strange how such large num bers of people are content to remain in ignorance of the natural features of their own land. A practical illus tration of what this sort of thing means was lately given in the course of a lecture by Mr. E. E. Pescott, Di rector of Horticulture in Melbourne. Mr. Pescott said that as far back as 1857, a Sydney nurseryman advertised in his catalogue plants of the Swan River daisy-from seeds Imported from England. In the same way a year or two ago, a Melbourne nursery man sent to England for seeds of Sturt's desert pea, which covered hun dreds of acres close to Broken HiIL The reply he received was: "None available now that the German mar ket is closed." Five or six years ago a Melbourne nurseryman imported from Germany the seeds of one hundred varieties of Australian wattle, many of them spe cies of which the cultivation had never been attempted here. A nur seryman who imported a lot of Jap anese irises gave him one whi...

THE GREATEST WEAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

THE GREATEST WEAPONS. The forty-centimetre gun. That hurls, six leagues, against the foe A missile weighing just a ton, Deals not the most effective blow. We thought so several years ago; But time has taught us better now. In laying adversaries low War's greatest weapon is the plough. Success in war depends, my son, On making corn and wheat to grow; And victory will by him be won Who hoes the most successful row. On those who plant, and till, and sow, And feed the swine, and milk the cow, We must our medals now bestow War's greatest weapon is the plough. That army quickly is undone Within whose rear stalks, to and fro, Grim Famine, fiercer than a Hun. With all his myrmidons of woe. Who neither ruth nor quarter show. Because it saves from these, we vow Our highest praise to it we owe War's greatest weapon is the plough. L'Envoi. Captain. I must report that so I find the facts; no matter how The tide of battle ebb or flow, WVar's greatest weapon is the plough.

Our Australian Boys. TWO TRUE STORIES FROM FRANCE. At a .base hospital "somewhere ii France" was a ward containing badly wounded men from the Somme. Th. doctor when examining the patients as they came In, was struck by -the very youthful appearance of a lac with five shrapnel wounds. Not un kindly, the doctor said: "How old are you, my lad?" A wan smile came over the pain-stricken lad's face when he replied, "Nineteen, sir." The doctor knewl he was telling a noble untruth "Now, laddie," he said, "that is your military age, tell me candidly your right age, so that I will know the strength of your constitution." "Well sir," he said, "I am sixteen." "Why, you are only a boy!" exclaimed the doctor. "Yes, sir," he said, "I am only a boy, but I came away to do a man's work, and I got a man's share." . He died that night. Another true story of one of ou, own Australian boy's self-sacrifical heroism is told from Rouen. There was a stretcher-bearer in the -tb Battalion who, although well dev...

THE FIGHTING EAGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

THE FIGHTING EAGLE. There is a theory . sometimes put foiward :by naturalists to the effect that the eagle will never Attack a big- animal; but when in Scotland dome time ago, Sir Charles Mordaunt witnessed a struggle which refutes any such theory completely. In the battle in which.Sir Charles was lucky enough to see, the eagle singled out from the herd, one par ticular back, which it succeeded in driving away from the rest. It struck the animal repeatedly with its powerf'l wings, knocking it down firstthen killing it. A -still more remarkable spectacle was witnessed by Baron `Schroeder. An eagle attacked a fawn which was one of a herd in the Highlands The cries of the little one were answered by its dam, which sprang upon the eagle and struck it repeatedly with its forefeet." Fawn, deer, and eagle, rolled headlong down a declivity, and the bird was dislodged' from its hold and the fawn rescued. Chief Kohler of the Cleveland police has a detective who, if reports are true, works by ...

DISINFECTING THE SICKROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

DISINFECTING .THE SICKROOM. For the sick room a pleasant dis infectant is made by puttihn in a saucer some freshly-ground coffee and and lighting a piece of camphor on top of it. As this burns it emits the odour of roasting coffee, an aroma that is agreeable to most people. This perfume has -the advantage of being healthful, and is to be preferred to the pastiles and incense powders, which to some are very sickening. The odour of the cofee will counter act any bad aroma in the room, and the fumes of the camphor will kill ordinary disease germs that may be floating around.

The ladies had left the room, and Barnstaple with them, for al though observing all the usual forms of politeness to him, Mendham had made it very much understood that no thing more was to be expected. ill never spoke to him if he could help it, and very seldom to his sister. Luckily they never dined alone: two or three habitues of the house were always invited, and in the crowd tlh? silence and gloom of the young master of the house were less observed. Eileen had watched him from the other end of the table, where she sat very tired and pale, penitent and ner vous in manner, seeking always across th flowers her brother's face with her eyes, hardly daring to speak to the man whose presence she know was only just tolerated.

NEW WAR DEVELOPMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917

NEW WAR DEVELOPMENTS. One American company alone, the American Steel Export Company of New York, has (according to a New York paper), sent to Europe since the beginning of the war more than 12,000 tons of barbed wire, which in its way is as effective as machine gunfire in stopping the rushes of Ger man troops. This amount of wire, if stretched out in a single line, would extend 86,000 miles; that is, it would girdle the world at the equator with a three-strand fence and have enough left over to build a similar fence from New York to France. The enormous quantity of wire is needed because it Is not used as or dinary fences, but as a Jungle of threatening points before all the first line trenches. The wire is not the ordinary kind so unfavorably known to picnickers, but is of a special heavy type, with four proecting barbs and painted olive drab. The wire has been made up in several ways, sometimes coiled in a. special manner and held by a single strand. This type may be thrown out in...
