Sad Memories. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

Sad Memories. The minister of a rural parish be ing once sent for to a shepherd s house to "christen a wean," a big fat hen was killed for the christening tea. Like most herds' children, those in the house in question were allowed to run about half wild, and glowered with holy fear from behind doors and chests at the parson, who was observed to be eating most of the hen. The young sters no doubt made many sage re flections on his voracious appetite, huit took care to keep out of his reach. A month or two after, when the min ister was visiting in the parish, he came back to the shepherd's cot, and as he seated himself in an armchair by the fire a number of chickens marched in, having the run of the house as usual. The children seemed terrified, but at length rushed in be tween the poultry and the minister and cried, "Gae 'wa'-gae 'wa'!" Then they "whusht" the chickens out of the house, exclaiming. "nrlsh-whish! Run. run! That's the man that ett yer mother!" Since Uncle Sam pulled out...

THE CAUSE OF DOUBLE-YOLKED EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

THE CAUSE OF DOUBLE YOLKED EGGS. Hens cannot lay two perfect eggs in one day becacse the hen's body is not capable of releasing suflficient carbonate of lime to furnish two perfect shells. The first growth of the egg is the yolk. When this reach es maturity it drops into a long membranous canal known as the ovi doct. As it travels through this canal it receives a coating of albumen; which is the white of the egg; as it ap proaches the mouth of the oviduct it receives a coating of lime, which constitutes the shell. With a ful' laying hen this occurs every 24 hou:s. Once In a while, however, due pro bably to stimulation ;and over feed ing, the ova or yolks are produced so rapidly that two of them drop into the oviduct together. These travel together along the ptasoge ard re ceive the white separately, but lecoms enclosed in one shell, and when laid are commonly known as double-yoked eggs. Such an egcg in reality is :a double egg, the white being duplicat ed as well as the yolk. 'fesle...

SHIPPING FORTUNES. £400,000 PROFIT IN ONE DEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

SHIPPING FORTUNES. £400,000 PROFIT IN ONE DEAL. Enormous fortunes are made by shipownere in England as well as in America. It was recently estimated that 80 Yankee ehipbrokers who were regard ed as poor men once, can now show a combined banking account of well over £100,000,000 I In illustration of this amazing fact some interesting information has re cently come to light. For instance, the New York steamer Aztec, which was torpedoed was insured for £500,180. although less than three years before, it could have been pur chased for £18,000. This vessel was a slow going small sized craft with a displacement of 3,000 tons, and al together a "back number" yet to-day any shipping firm would have consid ered that they had got her a bargain at anything between £300,000 and £400,000. This rise in value shows what hap pens when war makes its appearance on the high seas, and shipping be comes nothing more than a deadly game of "hide and seek." The only justification for the price which ves se...

GIRL SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

GIRL SMOKERS. -4----- The habit of smoking among women and girls is growing at an alarming rate. These women, who found con solation in the weed, smoked in mod eration, usually smoked from fifteen to twenty cigarettes a week. But not so now, for the smoking craze has made such headway that there are thousands of women at the pres ent time who think nothing of amok ing a hundred or a hundred and fifty. cigarettes a week. Three years ago a woman sulffering from a "smoker's-heart" was an an omaly. To-day it is quite a common I complaint, and recently a well-known i doctor estimated that nearly ten per cent. of his women patients were suf fering from illness brought on by ex cessive smoking. Some women are never happy unless they are courting "My Lady Nicotine." They are pre pared to take all risks in order to satisfy their craving. An acquaintance of the writer's, a young girl of seventeen boasts that she can "get through" a box of fifty cigarettes a day. When asked by the writer how s...

LADY GRAHAM'S LOCKET. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

LADY GRAHAM'S LOCKET. By MRS. LEONARD FRY. The music ceased suddenly, and a welcoming smile lit up the face of the player as Dr. Hammond entered the drawing-room and crossed to her side. "Philip has been called out, so I am going to claim a fulfilment of your promise," he said, in his rather abrupt way. "Will you sing to me ?" "With pleasure, Dr. Hammond. This"--Sybil chose a song from a pile on the piano top- "'is a favour ite of mine;" and she struck the opening chords. It was a simple little thing, and, unconscious of the critical scrutiny to which she was being subjected, she sang it faultlessly, the full, rich tones lingering with an impassioned tenderness over the concluding words: "I found at eve a lily fair. In my heart's land it blossomed there, As pure and white as thoughts above- It was your heart, it was your love." He offered no thakn, made no com ment for a moment, then, "You eing as thouch you believed those words,' he said, suddenly. The girl's eyes, in which lurked ...

THE WHOLESOME BREATH OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917

THE WHOLESOME BREATH OF FLOWERS. The old notion still holds among many people that flowers are not wholesome in a sleeping room. Cert- I ain plants, among which are the ger anium, the lily, and the begonia, are supposed for some tnexplained cause to give oil an odour at night espec ially obnoxious. Scientific knowledge and numerous experiments have re peatedly disposed of these delusions, and it is a great pity that people should deprive themselves of the plea sure and satisfaction to be derived from flowers for reasons which are not reasons at all. It is true that there are a few tropical plants which give off a perfume unhealthy to breathe at any time, but these plants are rare, and only number a few out of tens of thousands at the most. The green leaves of all flowers are. on the other hand, most beneficial, as they purify the air. Even the doc tors are begining to recognize that they may aid in the cure of disease. and one hospital has a flower ward which is used for the treatme...
