MR KI(EAST AT CORA LYNN. Speaking at the opening of the Cora Lynn show on Saturday, Mr W. S. Keast, M.L.A. said he was pleased to be present to open the show, which was one of education,, more especially to the farming industry. lHe said- he considered the exhibits of potatoes were particularly good andu he thought that the Cora Lynn and Banyip dis tricts and the Swamp in general could grow potatoes equal to any to be found in any part of the world. He had noticed that Mr Fisher and Mr Roper had obtained first and second prizes at Romsey, which was looked uponas one of the best potato growing districts in the State, and he felt sure that the Kooweerup Swamp in general had a very great future, more especially now that the drainage scheme had been passcd, and the place would rapidly come into production.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 May 1917
To the Editor. Sir-It should be of great interest and practical advantage, that of hav ing a local paper in our midst, partic ularly for the Gembrook and Cockatoo portions of the Shire of Berwick, which have been very much in the dlark as to what is going on around us, and practically no opportunity of mak ing known the conditions and wants and wishes of the people. The paper should be of great benefit in many ways, and particularly in dealing with council matters. There are also many items of district news which should appear in a local paper, and which would, make interesting reading, and its publication be of "advantage to the district. We need in these somewhat backward districts all the local or other information obtainable, suitable and helpful in the advancement of the district. The pioneers have their work cut out, and not much time at their disposal for recreation, or facilities to get about to- obtain information requisite for the many branches con nected with general farm...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor "Pakenham Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 May 1917
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor " Pakenham Gazette."' Sir,-The first issue of your paper gives great promise of filling a long felt want in this district, and, as Pak enham is the center of a large and important fruitgrowing portion of the State, the devotion of a liberal portion of your space to topics of interest' to growers would, I am sure, be much ap preciated by them. In reading " Jona than's" letter in your first issue, .a matter mentioned there, viz. Mr Ever ist's scheme for a cooI store, struck me?s being one on which you might invite the opinion of practical growers in the district. This I am sure would create an interesting and educational controversy, and tend to elucidate many points which present difficulties in connection with the practicability of iproceeding with the scheme at the pre sent time. There are many other topics also, which from the fruit growers' point of view could, with great advantage, be discussed through the medium of your paper. Trusting Shat these s...

Used to It. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
Used to it. The new curate was going the rounds of the slum district to which he had lately been appointed, and was much shocked at the conduct of a shabbily-dreSsed old man, who knock ed at the door of every house in the street and then furiously abused the owners who answered him. "What a strange old man!" he re marked to one of the householders. "Why is he allowed to go about and say those terrible things to these people?" "Oh, they don't mind him! Hie's all right. They're used to him. He's a harmless old lunateic, and he's been going about like this for the last ten years." "Dear me! Surely he ought to be put under restraint! What do you think is the cause of his behavior?" "Optlmism-that's what he's suIffer nlg from. 'You see, he's the land lord of these houses, and he's been coming round like this every Monday for ten years to get the rent-and he still tancies that he'll get it!"
ADVICE TO THE MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
ADVICE TO THE MARRIED. The last word is the most danger ous of infernal machines. Husband and wife should no more fight to get it than they wouldl struggle for the possession of a lighted bombshell. .M1arried people should study each other's weak parts of the ice, in or der to keep off them. Ladies who marry for love should remember that the union of angels with women has been forbidden since the flood. The wife is the sun or toe social system. Unless she attracts, there is nothing to keep heavy bodies, like husbands, from flying into space. The wife, who should properly dis charge her duties, must never have a soul above trifles. Don't trust too much to good tem per when you get into an argument. Sugar is the substance most univers ally diffused through all natural pro ducts. Let married people, therefore. take a hint from this provision of Nature. Though sometimes small evils, like invisible insects, inflict pain, and a single hair may stop a vast machine. yet the chief secret of ...
BRITAIN'S NATIONAL THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
BRITAIN'S NATIONAL THEATRE. There are few theatres with a more Interesting history than tile historic house in Drury Lane. In the first place, the theatre is open without any licence from the Lord Chamberlain, as the Royal Letters Patent were first granted by Charles II. to Thomlnas Kil ligrew, grlom of the chamber to tile King. It is diffiicullt to conceive that the most gigantic theatre in the King (1or1 shohld at one time have been soltl for the consideration of half a sovereign; yet such indeed has been the case. For over 200 years, up to the close of the nineteenth century. Drury Lane was guardled by soliers during every performance. The cnstom originatedl dluring thile reign of George II.. whose life was once attempted when he was P'rince of Vales by a fanatic. The guardrcom, however, being In a very bad state, the general commanding tile home district withdrew thle troops. Since its opening in 1i63 the thea tre has seen many innovations, amlong themll being the introduction o...

Cicely Vibart's Love. By ANNIE HAYNES Author of "Lady Carew's Secret," "Footprints of Fate," Etc.. Etc. (Published by Special Arrangement.) (Copyright) CIIAPTER XII. Pretty Barbara Barrington was exe cuting a pirouette as she gazed at her reflection in the long mirror that ran from the floor to the ceiling be tween the windows in the drawing room. WVhat she saw there pleased her evidently-she flushed and smiled as she glanced-.yet Barbara was in clined to be critical to-night-for someone was coming to dinner in whose eyes she wanted to look her very best She bent forward and al tered the position of the crimson roses that were stuck carelessly in her high waist-belt. She was ix white this evening like Alma Beresford, but her gown had not come from Ma ,lame Lolorth; it had been put to gether by the village dressmaker, with a good deal of help from Bar bara's own clever fingers. It was fashioned of white ninon, and had lit tie of cut or style, but its very sim plicity suited her slim ...
Ladies' Column. POTATO POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
Ladies' Column. POTATO PONT'S. A.most everybody is storing pota toes nowadays, and as this vegetable is such an important food, the fol lowing tips may come in handy: Don't pare potatoes and put them into cold water; they lose much of their nutritious value if treated in this way. Boil them in their jackets and, skin afterwards, When boiling or steiming, however, slit the skin at each end to prevent the potatoes he coming stodgy. For baked potatoes, see that they are pricked well before being placed in the oven. The skin cannot then ""atre" on to the flesh. If you must pare your potatoes and coo'rery economists never advise this unless the surface is bruised steam them in the very smallest quantity of boiling water, to which has been added a little salt. Use the liquid up afterwards for your soup.. Take a peep at yollr store cuplboard every morning to assure yourself that your potato and onion stores are keeping fresh and healthy. The Board of Agriculture advocates the sprink ling o...
