TACT OR TYRANNY? A COLUMN FOR WIVES WHO MAKE THE MISTAKE OF "MANAGING" THEIR HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
TACT OR TYRANNY? A COLUMN FOR WIVES WHO MAKE THE MISTAKE OF "MAN AGING" THEIR HUSBANDS. No wise woman ever dispises the experience of the past, so let us be gin at the _ beginning," when the world was all a garden and 'suburb' and 'urban' were uncoined words. How did Eve manage Adam? Did she do it ill or well. ? I am bound to admit, in spite of a deep-seated loyalty to my sex, that she made a mess of it, and the worst of it is,that very'few women seem to have profitted by the lesson, for even now the majority of us, with the sublime unselfishness or stupidity of our sex, still offer our Adam the apple. We still allow him to eat it all up, and still submit to the blame he meanly pours upon us directly he begins to suffer form the effects of his own greed. No ; the truth is man requires more subtle treatment than poor.unsophis ticated Eve was capable of, for a woman must be possessed of unerring instinct, tact, and penetration if she would manage a man aright. And the tactful woman ha...
SPEED OF BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
SPEED OF BIRDS. Express trains at their fastest, motor-cars defying the law, cannot compare, in respect of speed, with the doings of some birds. It is im possible to say how fast the frigate bird could fly if put to its mettle. It has been timed to do 100 miles an hour in calm air. but its velocity seems to depend, on its own inclina tion rather than of any limit to its powers. Among wild fowls, the mal lard covers from 45 to 50 miles in an hour, the pintail from 50 to 60 miles an hour, the widgeon from 65 to 75 miles, the gadwell from 50 to 70 miles the pochard from 80 to 90 miles. The common swift can fly at the rate of 90 miles an hour, clearly proving a good title to its name. Of game birds, the speed of the pheasant' is 38 miles an hour, and that of the partridge 32 miles. Employer :"So you want a week's wages in advance, do ypu ? But sup pose you die to-night ?" Workman- (proudly): '-'Sir, I may? be poor, but I am honest." "You're dreadfully untidy again, LMar !

THE CAT'S CLEANLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
THE CAT'S CLEANLINESS. ~-- 4b-- The most fastidious mammals in matters of toilet are to be found among the members of the cat fam ily, as all must have noticed in dom estic tabbies. The rough tongue makes an excellent brush, while the sharp claws" are on occasions employ ed by way of combs, all these valu able aids to cleanliness and smartness possessing the further advantage of always being at hand when required. A healthy cat is not only clean, but finical, not to say vain, about her for his) personal appearance, and moral degeneration in pussy is accom panied by neglect of personal groom ing. That the dog is as dirty as a toy must reluctantly be conlessed. He was the first animal to be domestic ated, and long association with man has perhaps had to do with his care lessness in the matter.

LOFTIEST LAKES IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
LOFTIEST LAKES IN THE WORLD. The most lofty lakes are found among the Himalaya Mountains, in Thibet. Their altitudes do not, how ever, seem to have been very accur ately gauged. for different authorities give widely different figures regarding them. According to some, Lake Manasa rowar, one of the sacred lakes of Thibet, is between 19,000 and 20,000 feet above the level of the sea, and If this is so it is undoubtedly the loftiest in the world. Two other Thibetan lakes, those of Chatamoo, and Sirakol are said to be 17,000ft. and 15,400ft. altitude respectively. For a long time it was supposed that Lake Titicaca, in South Amer ica, was the loftiest in the world. It covers about 4,500 square miles, is 924ft. in its greatest depth, and is 12,000ft, above the sea. ! In spite of the inexactitude with regard to the measurements of the elevation of the Thibetan lakes, they are no doubt considerably higher than this or any other.
SOMOA'S STRANGE WORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
SOMOA'S STRANGE WORMS. A puzzle for naturalists of many years standing has just been solved by English and German investigators. Periodically, in the autumn. the sea around the Samoan Islands suddenly swarms with headless marine worms known to natives as the palolo. The creatures are very slender, and aver age about 16in. in height. It is now known that the palolo bores into the reef rock of the is lanies, and that in its complete state it consists of a thicker anterior part about four inches long, carrying the head and a more slender and seg merinted posterior part, which at par ticular seasons seperates and swims about, and in this headless form the worms are so numerous that the water seems "alive" with them.
HEALTH IN WAR TIME. SOME VALUABLE HINTS FROM A WELL-KNOWN LONDON PHYSICIAN WHO PRACTISES WHAT HE PREACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
HEALTH IN WAR TIIME. ---o--- SOME VALUABLE HINTS FROM A WELL-KNOWN LONDON PHYSIC IAN WHO PRACTISES WHAT HE PREACHES. Pure food is lust essential to the well-fare of the human body as pure water and air; but it should be borne in mind that the purity and nutritive value of food in promoting the healthy condition of the individ ual will prove of little service unless careful attention is paid to the eual ity of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and. especially to the sani tary conditions of the lower bowels. It is not sufficient that we aim at maintaining a healthy condition of the body, or devote sole attention to the purity and the noursihing pro perty of our food. It is therefore imperative that in conjunction with a pure, wholesome food supply, we avail ourselves to the fullest extent of the two elements-namely, fresh air and pure water-which nature has so lavishly provided for our well being. Food will not remain in a fit state to eat for any length of time if it be stored ...
A NERVE TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
A NERVE TEST. In France a very practical system is adopted to test the nervous sys tem of air-pilots. The would-be pilot has to hold the handles of a special registering machine, which is so finely adjusted that it will show the slightest tremor. Whilst he is so occupied, a pistol is fired suddenly, and if the machine records any more than a very slight tremor, the candidate is disqualified. The way they do things in some of the odd corners of the British Empire, where they are comparatively free from wireless telegrams, is unique, if thorough. The officer in charge of a certain hinterland rec eived.from his superior officer at the base this message:--"War has been declared. Arrest all enemy aliens in your district." With the commend able prompitude the superior officer received this reply:-"Have arrested seven Germans, four Russians, two Frenchmen, five Italians, two Roum anians, and an American. Please say who we are at war with." Famous Painter (angrily) : "I hear sir, that you a...
Correspondence. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
Correspondence. To the Editor. Sir,- While our local councillors are making commendable efforts to deal with the mud problem, there is an important connection which appar ently is being overluoced. I refer,.to the footpath connecting Henry street with the business part of the tow:.. The footpath in que~tion waa once re ferred to as " Lovers' Lane, ""and ."N was then shaded with the " sweet -cented wattle." But the wattlea have been removed and the footpath nowv shivers in cold riad. As this can. be remedied at small cost, and is as deserving of attention as any part of the township, I trust it will not b allowed to remain in its present im ?assable condition.-Yours, etc., HENRY STREET RATES.

PAKEN!iAM UPPER. The Pakenham Upper Red Cross concert and unveiling of the Honor Roll, which was held on Saturday last, 22nd instant, was a pronounced success, despite "adverse weather conditions. The hall, which was tastefully decorated for the occasion by members of the Red Cross, was filled to over ftowing. The-chairmsn (Mr F. Wise would) in his opening remarks spoke of the good work don:- by Red Cross S-,cicties generally, and particularly by the local branch, whose members have worked consistently to supply those things most needful to ti:e boys at the Front.

Mr J. Armour, who has been in charge of the Pakenham Presbyterian Mission for the past three years, has been notified of his transfer to Heales ville, and he will [clave Pakenham next week. During his stay in this district he has made many friends, and his departure will be much re gretted. He will cinduct a farewell service at the Pa.:enham church on Sunday evening next. His successor is Mr A. McMeekin, of Koonawara. A public meeting is to be held at Upper Pakenham next Wednesday eve ning to deal with the matter of the removal of the telephone. We would direct special attention to the fact that the opening sale in connection with the Pakenham Auction Mart is to take place on Thursday, the 11th October. At this sale Mr Close will give full particulars as to the lines on which the business is to be conducted and the future dates of sales.

Had Him Both Ways. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
Had Him Both Ways. Many charming stories, showing how the quick-witted Belgians succeed in taking a rise out of their German op presyso, are told in a recently-publish ed volume by Jean Massart. One of the best of these concerns a peasant with a donkey cart, who was ordered by a German guard at the en trance to a town to give the name of his donkey, so that it might be enter ed on the official pass in. "My donkey's name!" exclaimed the peasant, scratching his head. "He hasn't got one." "Then call him Albert.' "That would be a reflection on my King." "Call him William then." "That would be a reflection on my donkey." Regular visitors call upon the woun ded and sick Australian soldiers in English hospitals and it is their duty to see that Red Cross comforts are properly dealt out. We find that men are grateful and appreciative for the splendid generosity of their folk in Australia. The operations of the Red Cross are of inestimable benefit to our men by providing comforts that might b...
PRISONERS OF WAR. OLD-TIME GALLEY SLAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
SPRIHSOERS OF WAR. "'/!'.. ---*-e-- OLD-TIME GALLEY SLAVE. - The Mediterranean galley of olden time was a long and very narrow ship of the true racing build, un decked save at bow and stern, where two poope towered up. and single matsted; for it relied much less on its sails than on its fifty-two great oars To make the galUey travel still more quickly, the bows were greased, and on critical occasions the , soldiers were forbidden to walk about least they should disturb the trim of the vessel, and thereby lessen its speed. It was the torpedo-catcher of those times, the fastest craft afloat, and unsurpassed for making attacks upon merchantmen and men-of-war caught napping, but unseaworthy to the lust degree, and incapable of weath ering a storm-the four that accom panied the Armada all foundered in the Bay of Biscay. Their open build rendered them perfectly helpless in the face of a well-directed fire, so by France and Spain they were only used as cruisers; but nothing else was so wel...
Quite Simple. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917
Quite Simple. Almost anyone can be an editor, says an American contemporary. All an editor has to do is to sit at hi desk six days in the week, four weeks of the month, and twelve months in the year, and ."edit" such stuff as this: "Mrs. Jones, of Lost Creek, let a can-opener slip last week and cut herself in the pantry." "A mischievous lad of SMatherton threw a stone and struck a compan ion in the alley last Tuesday." "John Doe climbed on the roof of his house last week looking for a leak and fell, striking himself on the back porch." "While Harold Green was escorting Miss Violet Wise home from a church social last Saturday night a savage dog attacked them and bit Mr. Green on the public square." "Isaiah Trimmer, of Lebanon, was playing with a cat last Friday, when it scratched him on the verandah." "Mr. White, while harnessing a broncho last Saturday, was kicked just south of the corn crib."

Repatriation unad.

This carnival will be held from the 20th to the 27th O.tober, and will give visitors to Melbournie an op portunity to aid this fund. There will be big sporting events, fire works, massed bands, fire brigade di.play, and many other attractive items for each day and night during the week. The Carnival will be held in the Melbourne Cricket Club grounds, where all those who have the welfare of the returned soldiers and their dependents at heart should make a special effort to attend.
