The World of Men. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

'The World of Men. One half of Europe to-day is fight ing for the emancipation from tile threatened hand of Kultur. The other half is fighting for world power, Ger manic rule and lust of greed. Hlow they are waging their light a whole world knows. When Germany and her allies set forth on their crusade of devastation and bestial brutality, the men of the invaded countries. young and old. stood their ground to defend their homes, and were proud to sacrifice their lives on the altar ol righteousness. The men of France. Belgium andi Servia who laid down their lives did so knowing that their reward to be was the freedom of theI next generation. These melt were tlhe true patriots-they died that their country might be free.

GERMAN "SUBSTITUTES." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

GERMAN "SUBSTITUTES." We hear so much of the German ap titude for the employment of substi tutes, in order to minimise the incon venience caused by our blockade and the shrinkage of their economic re sources, that it is interesting to read in their technical literature that these substitutes do not always pan out well. An instance of this kind is recorded in the "Zeitscbrift des Vereins deut scher Ingenieur," April 19, 1917. Tile case under consideration is the trcn ble created by the use of soap substi tutes. These consist of preparations made from precipitated clay, clhina clay and slaked lime, which, while they are said to be fairly efficient sub stitutes for soap, seriously impede the domestic drainage system. It has fre quently been found that the house mains become obstructed, particularly at the point of junction with the street mains, by a white, pasty sedi ment, and the only remedy in most cases is the laying bare and opening the drain pipes to remove the obstruc tion.

THE DAYS OF THE HORSE ARE NUMBERED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

THE DAYS OF THE HORSE ARE NUMBERED. There is every evidence of a con spiracy on the part of fate against the horse. On the furrowed battle fronts the average equine life has been re duced to a period of eight days. when an animal is in active service. The "Country Gentleman" (U.S.A.) states that for an army of 2,000.000 men we shall need 416.000 horses and mules. An average of 33,000 horses a month has been exported for the Allies since the beginning of the war. and 11.000 horses a month are being drafted for military service in this country. These figures give some idea of the vast numbers of horses which must be available. and they also help us to realise the necessity of acquirinig some other means of transportation in many lines of work. Ve read: "If tile work horses in the country were displaced by farm tractors antd motor trucks, as passenger automo biles have largely displaced the piceas ure horse, or family carriage horse the wheat yield of the country could be Increased 50 ...

"We will go by the bridle-path." she said at length. "It is shorter, and the gates are really no trouble." Then with a cheery word of good bye to the old and crippled woman who had opened the lodge-gates for them, Lilian Hamilton and Letitia Crane turned their horses sharply to the right, and, passing through the light iron wicket, entered the path where scarce half an hour ago Philip Trevelyan and Lettie Charlton lhad met and parted. The two girls were returning from a strenuous day spent with the local hounds, and Lilian Hamilton had per suaded Miss Crane to turn in at Nelth erton Manor and remain for tea and dinner.

NOTHING SERIOUS. Lady Lecturer on womeir's rights, waxing warm-"Where woeid man be if it had not been for woman? After a pause, and looking round the hall, "I repeat, 'Where would man be if it had not been for woman ?" Voice from the gallery,--"In the Garden of Eden, ma'am." A lady who was riding in anomni bus was much disturbed by the per sistent snuffling of a boy sitting next to her. At last she could stand it no longer. "Have you a handkerchief?" she asked in her most appealing tone, "Yes," said the boy, "but I don't lend it to strangers !" Not long ago a city editor in Ot tumwa, Iowa, was told over the tele phone that a prominent citizen had just died suddenly. He called a re porter and told him to rush out and get the "story". Twenty minutes later the reporter returned, sat down at his desk, and began to rattle off copy on his typewriter. "Well, what about it?" asked the city editor. "Oh, nothing much," replied the re porter, without looking up. "He was walking along the stree...

IN CLOVER. AN EXQUISITE NATURE STORY FROM THE FIELDS ABOUT A BEE A FIELD MOUSE—AND A CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

IN CLOVER. AN EXQUISITE NATURE STORY FROM THE FIELDS ABOUT A BEE A FIELD MOUSE-AND A CAT. The specially-selected little seed clover shone, polished rich blue-green and red in the warm amber of the afternoon sun. So still and quiet it was that no one could guess ,he fate of it hung upon the queen humble, (bumble if you like) bee hidden on the top of her brood cells in the mid dle of her warm nest-chamber, at the end of the little tunnel under the clover, far out in the field. No one would have known that she was there at all. Yet, because of an epidemic which had slain the humble bees last year, and because humble bees are necessary to clover, it was up to her to raise a full nest of humble bees to save the field, or perish in the attempt. She was the field's only hope. THE UNPROTECTED NEST. She had been sitting for hours on the top of her cells, wherein were laid her eggs on the top of a heap of honey and pollen, all ready for the young bee-grubs to feed upon when they hatched- out,...

The War Loan. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

The War Loan. An easy way of popularizing the Loan is by the use of the artistic stamps issuedl by Sir John Forest, the Fedler:dl Treasurer, which can be fixed to the backs of envelopes of either business or private correspondence. These form a silent but effective method of arousing interest ia the Liberty Loan, and one which can be utilised by the bulk of the people with little or no trouble to themeelves. Tihe work is one of national importance, and all should participate in whatever way they can. As Sir John says in his appeal, Aus tralia should remember Nelson's his toric signal at Tra?Tligar--" Englandl expects that every man will do his duty." It is a mes.age that makes a special appeal to every man and woman in the Comnmonwealth at the present time. Our duty is clear at this stage of the war. ,oney is urgently needed to prosecute the war and carry it to a successful conclusion. The Liberty Loan affords those who stay at home an opportunity which ought not to be neglected. Pa...

HOTTEST PLACE ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

HOTTEST PLACE ON EARTH. Death Valley. in Southern Califor nia. is usually referred to as the hot test spot on earth, but it isn't quite that. Thie rather unpleasant distinc tion belongs to a portion of the shore of the Persian Gulf at and in the vicinity of Bahrin. Statistics prove that the mean an nual temperature of the Persian Gulf furnace is l1deg. higher than that of Death Valley, and the aridness of both places is about on a par. Yet while Death Valley is inhabited by practically none and permanent life there is deemed well-nigh impossible, Bahrin has a population of several thousand people, and has had an ex istence as a village for many cen turies. Of course, the people are stunted mentally and to a slightly less extent physically-a fact due to Ithe fearful conditions under which they-live; but they do live there and are probably the nearest approach to salamanders In the human family. What do they do for water and food? Why, the latter is brought to them in boats and sold i...

THE PROLIFIC SOYA BEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

THE PROLIFIC SOYA BEAN. The soya bean is one of the most promising of vegetables. It provides oil and food for man and beast. Given soya beans and granted the art of preparing them so developed that they might be served as food having suflicient diversity and palatableness, neither meat nor fish nor fat would be needed. In this respect the Ger m-ans did not prepare for war and a blockade. It is marvellously prolific, and so valuable is the oil expressed from it that nearly every State in America is making experiments with soya beans in its agricultural experimen tal stations. The loil is used as a Isubstitute for linseed soil which, ow ing to the uncertainty of the flax crop, is more speculative than mining stocks In its value. The oil may also be hardened into an edible, hard fat, while the pulp or oil cake is one of the very best kinds of cattle feed. In order to get as much as possible of the oil out of the meal, the pressed pulp is sometimes further extracted by means of a solve...

Y.M.C.A. Work Valuable. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

Y.M.C.A. Work Valuable. That the Y.M.C.A. gives fine service to the soldiers is indicated by a re port which has just been received from Mr. O. B. Norman, one of the military secretaries of the Y.M.C.A. on active service with Australian sol diers abroad Wnriting last month from Codford Training Camp, Eng land, he said:--"It is very encourag ing to know that the National Com mittee in Australia is standing behind us in the work we are seeking to do. The needs of the men, and the de mands upon the Y.M.C.A. are prob ably greater than ever. The men are war-weary and they long for home and loved ones with a great longing, and it is at this point that the Y.M.C.A. finds its big opportunity for real ser vice. As I interpret our policy, we are only seeking to do for these boys what their loved ones would do for them if they were able, and the very helplessness of some of these big fel lows in quite small things reveals at once the big part played in their lives by the wives, mothers and sis...
