A Give Away. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917

A Give Away. Passenger: I thought you weren't allowed to take tips, porter? Porter: Oh, no, sir; we're not al lowed to take them, and we never do take them, but, of course, we receive them occasionally. A weak mind is like a microscope, which magnifles trifling things but cannot receive great ones.

DON'T TICKLE BABY. The Danger of Forcing Laughter. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917

DON'T TICKLE BABY. The Danger of Forcing Laughter. "Come and see baby laugh, mother". said baby's big sister, as her mother ret-irned from her work in the muni tion factory. Mother was quite pleased to see the little one so merry. It didn't occur to her that tickling could do the child any harm. Anything that brings a child into a state of screaming and laughing ex citement is overstraining the young nerves and setting the seeds of hys teria which will probably blossom forth in man or womanhood. Proof has been given that certain people who lack will-power have been unduly tickled in their youth. A girl who is now eighteen years of age and unfit for any employment, on account of he- nervous attacks, owes her af fliction to being over-excited in her babyhood. At about three she had an attack of convulsions. Her parents were so delighted to see her getting better that. instead of making her remain quiet, they began to make her laugh with odd little tickles under the chin and on the arm...

Italy's Poet-Orater. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917

Italy's Poct-Orator. The advent in Rome of Italy's great poet D'Annunzlo, before the declara tion of war with Austria, is thus gra phically described by Robert Herrick in his book "The World Decision": "The train arrived about dusk, as the great electric lamps began to shine above the sea of white faces. To most the arrival was evident merely from the swaying of the dense human mass, from the cadence of the Gari baldian hymn that rose into the air from thousands of throats. As room was made for the motor-car, one could see a slight figure, a grey face, swallowed up in the surging mass. Then the crowd broke on the run to iollow the motor-car to the hotel on the Pincian, where the poet was to stay.... All the way from the Piazza Tritono to the Borghese Gar dens, even to the Villa Malta, where Prince von Bulow lived, the crowd packed, in the hope of hearing some words from the poet The words of Mameli's 'L'Inno' rose in the twilight air. At length the little grey figure appeared on the...

REMARKABLE STORY OF LORD. WOLSELEY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 28 September 1917

REMARKABLE STORY OF LORD. WOLSELEY. Amongst the many anecdotes told of the late Lord Wolseley, the follow ing is of great interest. At the time of the Crimea, when Lord Wolseloy was serving in the trenches before Sebastopol and attached to the En gineers, Prince Victor of Hohenlohe Langenberg (of the Naval Brigade) was present after one of the actions, when he saw a heap of bodies lying together as dead. Thinking that he saw signs of life In one of them, he drew the attention of a doctor present to' the fact. The doctor, annoyed at the inter ference, refused to take any steps. and ordered the supposed corpse to be laid out in the broiling sun amongst others awaiting burial. Prince Victor. however, quite un daunted, set to work himself to lift the body from amongst the others. and called to a naval doctor of the name of Irving to come and feel the pulse--at the same time pulling hard at a splinter that was projecting from the cheekbone, and moistening the lips with brandy. At this mo...

Hlow careless of me." her mistress said. "I'm sorry I've no money in the house just now; but here's a smart cloak that I've ceased to wear, and which is only a wee bit out of fashion.
