BACKBONE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 September 1917
BACKBONE. Backbone is what you are needing, my boy, If you would be helpful and able; Courage to do, to dare and to be, Alone will make your life stable! Wishbones may please your fancy, my girl, 'Valking In paths fair and easy! But over the seas where you have to sail, Tempests will blow strong and. breezy. Courage is just the thing you require, In holding the plough or the pencil; There's backbone behind it, and back bone will tell, As true as the outlining stencil! The man with the wishbone is always dependent, While backbone is sure, strong and ready; It dares to advance when pathways are dark. And when things upset, it is steady! Get backbone, my boy, whatever the cost; With life many millions are fooling. Dependent they live, and helpless th'1 die, Since backbone is out of their rul ing! -Robt Hare.

Jackson deposed—I am the foreman in charge of the construction works at the reservoir, Beaconsfield, and I live at the camp. I identify the body as that of a man named Alexander McMillan. He was a laborer working under my supervision at the construc tion works. I saw him last alive about five weeks ago, when he was transferred from the construction gang to the channel gang, and he would then come under the supervision of Mr Flood, who had charge of the channel gang. His health at that time was normal. I found him generally a quiet and orderly man and a good worker. He was, I am told, in the habit of having a periodical outburst of drinking, when he would drink to excess. I could not throw any light as to the time he left the ...

A Miracle Reversed. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
A Miracle Reversed. A good story of the war ' In the Philippine Islands occurs in Major General Younghusband's recently published book, "A Soldier's Memor ies." Two Englishmen, strolling around the Spanish outpost.line near Manila chanced across a small picket, con sisting of three men in charge of a sergeant. The latter hospitably offered the Englishmen a share of their ration of red wine, which they gladly accepted, though, as it was ,a very hot day, they asked that a little water might be added. This (writes General Younghus band) was evidently considered a capital Joke, for all four burst into roars of laughter. "Wherefore this merriment?' ask ed the Englishmen in some bewilder ment. 'Pardon us, sir," said the sergeant, "but I will explain. That wine is a very good wine, and comes from Bar celona. It starts off In large caslks addressed to the Adjutant-General. Out of each cask the Adjutant-Gen eral makes two, and hands it on to our Colonel. Our Colonel out of these two diluted ...

NOTHI?3G SERIOUS. VERY MUCH CONCERNED. His name was just plain Bill.

"wot you mean by knockin' orf poor Widder Snugb's parish pay ? She's a honest, hard-working woman, an' It's a wicked shame ter rob 'er of 'er lorful rights !" The clerk took down a large led ger, and silently consulted it. "Mrs Snugg has married again. " he said, "and the guardians have de cided that she is no longer entitled to outdoor relief. And in any event 'my man, he added sharply, "I should like to know what concern of yours the matter is ?" "Concern of mine !" roared the man. '"'Why, if you stops the old lady's pay, you stops my daily al lowance of 'baccy an my daily noos paper ! I'd 'ave yer know, young feller, i'm 'er noo 'usband !"
CLIPPING THE EAGLE'S TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
CoLIPPING THE EAGLE'S TALE. They were lounging in the smoking room of the Mouretania, engaged in her usual habit of breaking yester day's record. "Talkin' about runnin'," said the Yankee apropos of polecats-"talk in' about runnin', I once knew a guy who could run so slick that when they took pictures of him for a cinematograph show, he came out in the films with two hundred and twenty-one distinct legs. Would you believe it, sir ?" The Englishman shook his head. "Nothing out of the way !" he answered carelessly. "Why, I was once at the 'Varsity, and we had a man who could run so fast that when. racing round the. four-laps-to-the mile track he could see his own back ! Steward !'" Bridget was none too truthful and her mistress had been using all her. eloquence to make her see the error of deceitfulness, But her would-be owned herself routed when Bridgett turned upon her a beaming smile, and said, in a most cajoling tone: "Sure, now, ma'am, and what do ye suppose the power o' desaving ...

Cresswell, a Marine officer attached Ito the R.F.C., and Commander Arthur Rice were drowned in Seaplane 12S. which dropped into the sea during a flight. The 128 made a flight of about six miles, and on the way back from the direction of the Isle of Wight she was seen to be flying unsteadily, then the left wing broke, and the machine began to volplane, rapidly increasing the steepness of its descent until it became a nose dive. The sound of an explosion was heard immediately before she fell. Several boats from the yachts and other craft in the roadstead made for the spot where she had disappeared, and the Trinity Housse steamer "Warder" picked up the seaplane, which had come to the serface. Lieut. Cresswell's body was still bound securely to his seat, and was terribly injured. Commander Rice's body was not discovered at the time. The disaster caused ...

What do you say to coming around to my house for an hour or two, or to passing the time in any way you wish-a music-hall if you like; anything that will get us past the midnight hour." ŽIendham shuddered. "I couldn't go to a music-hall, thanks very much." "Nor could I," said Sophie. "Well-well, it was only a sugges tion. We simply must let them think we've gone away for the evening, and then we must come back. WYell, then, is it to be my place or not?" "If you will be so kind as to let us trespass on your time," said 'fend ham, rather formally, "I s...

At one house his ring was answered by a comely young woman, who waited calmly for him to state his business. "Is your husband insured, madam?" he began, in an ingratiating fashion. . "No," she responded. "Indeed!" he answered, confident that he had found a bonanza. "Do you not think he should be insured " "No," with the sapme calmness.

HEROES MAKING TOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
HEROES MAKING TOYS. "Never again must we import.toys from Germany, when our own sold iers can make them so splendidly," said the Duke of Connaught at the Lord Roberts Memorial Workshops, in the Fulham Road. The Duke and his sister, Princess Christian, were paying a visit of inspection to the workshops, and they evinced the keenest interest in all the processes of toy and furniture making. Some workers were seen making dolls legs, in huge quantities, others were em ployed exclusively with sections of toys, wheelharrows, mailcarts, and the like, the parts being passed on from bench to bench to "meet" their neighbouring parts, till the completed articles are finally assembled. The visitors saw, for the first time, paint being applied to wooden toys by means of aerographs, which coat the article by means o! a spray from a very small nozzle-much on the prin ciple of a scent-sprayer. The Artist (fishing for a compli ment) :"Just a little daub of mine, you see, dear madam." Miss Gush (gush...
