MUSICAL LIZARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

MUSICAL LIZARDS. ----+---- Quite by accident a curious fact has lately been learned about the tuatara, a large member of the lizard family which lives in New Zealand. This great, fat, sleepy reptile-he is over a foot long-likes music, sing4ng he prefers. A New Zealand paper tells the fol lowing story, which we reproduce for what it is worth: "One day a song sung by a girl brought some lizards out of the rockF but only their heads were visible, their sleepy eyes opening every few minutes. Then the charmer tried "Soldiers of the Queen" and when all joined in the chorus there was no dolubt about the effect on the tuatar as. They wvriggled about on the rocks, almost dancing in theirexcite ment and joy, until the repertoire of the singers was exhausted, when the lizards sneeked back again to their home among the rocks." New Zealand is the only place in the world where these great lizards are found, and they are said by bio logists to be out of their place in this stage of the world's his...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. VWhen sprinkling clothes use hot water. It damps them more evenly. For setting a rat-trap, use bread soaked in linseed oil. Rats cannot re sist linseed-oll. An ounce of alum added to the rins Ing water or to the starch will render muslin or cotton .goods almost fire proof. The peel of lemons should be saved and driedand placed among the sugar to be used for cakes. This gives a slight flavor to the sugar. Oil-cans should be tightly corked, as paraflin exposed to the air will not burn brightly and will form a crust on the wick after being lighted. If you happen to have run out of boot-polish, a few drops of lemon juice rubbed briskly on to black or brown leather will give it a brilliant polish. Many people when frying fish find a dificulty in turning the steaks. If, however, the flsh-sllce is greased on both sides before being used it will easily slip under the fish. While sweeping a carpet, occasion ally dip the broom into a mixture of salt and water. Do not saturate...

Women Warriors. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

Women Warriors. Privates, corporals, sergeants, en signs, lieutenants, captains, colonels, indeed, almost every- rank in the Army has been held at one time or another by a woman. Skipping over the fabled Amazons. and coming down to authentic his tory,. the first deeds of valor in the field of which we have record were performed by queens or wives of great generals who have taken upon themselves the duties of commander and governors-general in thle absence of men fitted to fill those positions. Dut these, however brave and able. can scarcely be said to have won their own way through tile hardships of a soldier's lot to preferment. In terest centres mainly in women who have gone to war as men go to war. taking uncomplainingly all the duties and hardships of their position, and winning their own way by gallant deeds anti heroic suffering. The Queen Regent Blanche of Cas tile deserves mention, however. luI 1227 the Queen and her son mlarched into Brittany and laid siege to the stronghol...

THE WAR LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

THE WAR LOAN. Everyone who has the means or the resources which can be converted, should not show a moment's hesitation in subscribing to the fullest extent of their capacity to the Commonwealth War Loan. Mlen, munitions and money are still needed as badly as ever, and the evidence of our practical patriotism should be in the shape of Commonwealth Stock. Nothing but the greatest de mand on our firnncial resources, stimu lated by the most earnest sense of patriotism, will enable us to fully complete the part we are taking in the prosecution of the war, and provide the men and equipment which will help to bring about the end of the war. It cannot be too often urged upon those who have the means of subscrib ing, and those who can obtain the means by curtailing a part of their ordinary expenditure, or by realising a portion of their other assets, that every effort which they make is an effort not only necessary but also one that should come voluntarily from all who have the country's in...

PENINSULA WATER SCHEME. GARFIELD AND BUNYIP. Commissioner Shaw, of the State Rivers and Water Supply Department, accompanied by Mr W. S. Keast, M.L.A., visited Bunyip on Friday last to explain the Peninsula Water scheme and the proposal to supply water to Bunyip, Garfield and Tynong. There was a large attendance of those in terested, and an interesting discussion took place. Mr Shaw considered that the scheme would be a great benefit to Bunyip and Garfield, and also to the settlers who were going in for orchard plant ing. He explained that the scheme would start from a reservoir at the top of the Toomuc Valley and would be brought along the top of the ranges right through Pakenham to Bunyip, and the orchardists and householders would get water at the rate of Is per 10010 gallons. This was as cheap as the Melbourne rate. The minimum charge for allotments in the towns would be 7s Gd, and the maximum for house properties would be 2s 6d in the £. It would probably Le the cheapest and bi...

NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

NOTHING SERIOUS. The Shakespeare Club of New Or leans was noted for its amateur per formances. Once, a society celebrity gorgeous in the costume of a lord in waiting, was called upon to say: "The Queen has swooned." As he stepped upon the stage his friends applauded vocaferously. Bow ing his thanks, he faced the king and in a high-pitched voice, said: "The swoon has queened." There was a roar of laughter. He waited patiently until it had subesid ed and tried again: "The sween has. cooned." Again the house roared and the stage manager, in a voice that could be heard all over the theatre, said, "'Come off,. you doggoned fool !" But the ambitious amateur refused to surrender, and in a rasping fal setto, as he was being assisted off the stage, screamed: "The coon has asweened !" A very stout old lady, bustling through the park on a sweltering hot day, became aware that she was be ing closely followed by a rough-look ing tramp. "What do you mean by following me in this manner ?" she indi...

QUEER PRANKS PERFORMED BY BULLETS. A SHOWER BATH IN ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

QUEER PRANKS PERFORMED BY BULLETS. A SHOWER BATH IN ACTION. There is something diabolical in the course which one bullet took in the South African campaign, in its greedy bagging of three victims. The first it deigned merely to wound through the arm. perforation of the thigh marked its course thro.gh the second, and with unerring intent it found its final billet in the brain of its third victim lying in supposed refuge behind an antheap. The Man ser bullets used by the Boers-little thicker than an ordinary pencil, and of great velocity-were- responsible for many eccentric tricks. At Paardeberg one entered its bil let-a young esubaltern-by the neck, and grouped its way south, to finally rest in his heel. Another, which en tered the right shoulder of a lance corporal of the Seaforths, was finally located in his left hip; and a third, well spent, had just enough energy to pierce the flesh of an officer's shoulder, who was prone at the time, before dropping quietly into his trou sers po...

LOSS OF THE "TITANIC." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 12 October 1917

LOSS OF THE "TITANIC." Slhe sailed the deep with a dauntle:ss mfen, Proud as an ocean warrior queen. Time's monument of huiman skill. And fairest dream of the human will. But not by the storm was her pride o'ercast, For the tempest husheld while the vision passed: Twas a crystal rock that hound her track, And hurled the mighty liner back. Back into midnight's sombre gloom. Where the bilIows cleft a mighty tomb: And a thousand souls, in that hour of pride, Vent down to slumber beneath the tide. There, side by side in the awful deep, Silent and still, while the storm winds weep, Side by side in their briny bed. They wait. "till tihe sea gives up its dead." Oh sea!-dark, deep and treacherous sea- Thy gathered trophies how grand thier be. The fairest Idols of heart and home Find seamless shroud 'neath thy snowy foam. RI. flare.

Our Australian Victory. Last week's cables contained the greatest news we have yet received from the WVestern Front. What won derful soldiers these Australian lads make! Three and a half years ago these men had little thought of war; last week they were given the place of honor in the centre of the line, to act as storming troops. They hurled themselves at the enemy, and with irresistible dash carried the ridge. To day the whole Allied world rings with praise of these wonderful men. Tihe Southern Cross flag is now fluttering on the ridge as a symbol of a glorious achievement. The now historic name of Anzac has added another laurel to its pillar of fame. The Germans are chagrined to know that their strong holds are now in the hands of these laughing, dare-devil men from Aus tralia All our gains have been consolidat ed and the enemy's furiors counter at tacks are futile. Their casualty lists must be appalling, but with blind Teu tonic rage, they intend to drive back these long-limbed ...

A Question of Theology. Of George Meredith, the author, a story is told. lie was a born tease. Some years ago, as the result of an operation, he was put for a time on low diet-farin aceous stuff and the like. One evening, eating only half his pudding, the maid, in taking away. the dish, said: "Oh, if you please, sir, ldoes this puddin' want savin'?" That was enough. Looking at her solemnly, he said: "Now, my good girl, you, I believe, Schurchgoer, ask me it this puddin wants savin'. Do you think that th puudiun' has a soul, that it stands in need of salvation, as we are told we all do? Take it away, Elizabeth, and let. me never hear you ask such a ct: tion again." Stranger: "WVhere can I get a glass ef beer in this place?" Dooley (the hired man): "I'll show yez. sor; I be thirsty fur one mesilf." "It is not necessary for you to go with me if you will direct me, it will do." "It might do, sor; but me tongue be too dhry ter tell yez."
