Berwick Shire News WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 1914 [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

Notwithstanding the repeated warnings given to electors by the Commonwealth electoral autho rities re the necessity of er.rol ment, there are still many who have failed to send in their cards. So far as the Berwick sub-division is concerned, the roll is well up-to-date, but we understand that there are still over 100 electors who have not yet sent in their, claims for en rolment, although they have been notified. They should attend to the matter at once, as any fur ther delay will lead to prosecu tion, and, in the circumstances, probably to a heavy fine. The Electoral Act says that every person who is entitled to be en rolled-everyone over 21 years of age, who has lived in Australia for six months continuously, and who is a natural born or naturalised British subject - must apply for enrolment within 21 days from the time he be came so entitled. The penalty for neglect to enrol is £2. Constable Maher, of Paken ham, is on his annual leave, and for the next fortnight Constable Hehir w...

"Come Over Here." [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

"Come Over Here." Lunatic (looking over the wall of the asylum at a laborer working): "This is a fine day, sir." Laborer: "It is indeed." Lunatic: "Are you married?" Laborer: "Yes." Lunatic: "How much a week have you?" - Laborer: "Only twenty shillings, and I have to support my wife and family on that." Lunatic: "Well, all I can say is that you are on the wrong aide of the wall." Religion and Government appear to me the two subjects which, of all others, should belong to the common talk of people who enjoy the blessings of freedom. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up to 7%d. per pound Tor porkers (prime small), and for prime large (80 to 100 Ibs.). Gd. to 7d.; for best calves to 4%d per lb., and medium 3d. per Ib.; veal went to 3'Ad. per lb.. and medium quality slightly lower.

A WATCHMAKER'S EPITAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

A WATCHMAKER'S EPITAPH. Lieutenant-Colonel Bennett has dis covered among some old papers the text of a curious epitaph, which reads :as follows: "Here lies in horizontal position the outside case of George Routledge, Watchmaker, whose ability in his line was an honor to his profession. In tegrity was the mainspring and pru dence the regulator of the actions of his life. IHumane, generous, and lib oral, his hands never stopped till he relieved distress. So nicely balanced were his movements that he never went wrong, except when set agoing by people who did not know his key. Even then he was easily set right again. Hie had theart of disposing of his time so well that his hours glided away in one continual round of plea sure and delight, till an unlucky min ute'put a period to his existence. iHe departed this life November 14. 1802. age 57. Wound up in hopes of being taken by his Maker and of being thor oughly cleaned, reparhed, and set go ing again in the world to come."

WHEN MR. GLADSTONE WHISTLED. Apparently the powers of .iMr. Glad stone as a siffleur were somewwhat lin .i..ted. judglpg 'by the amusing story told by thie Rev. T. Selby Hlenrey in "Attic Salt" (Nisbet). Mr. Gladstone and Dean Wellesley were sciloolfel lows at Eton, and the friendslhip there commenced continued through out life. When they were both in thle 'sixties they met at a little dinner party at the deanery at Wlndsor. andt the great statesman jocularly said across the table to the Dean: "I say, old friend, I have got a good story for you about Harry Phill potts, Bishop of Exeter." Upon which Mrs. Gladstone hastily interfered:-"William, you must not tell that story until the servants have left the room.' When the psychological moment ar rived, the Premier said: "You know, WVellesley, that Bishop Phillpotts, during his old age, ac quired the habit of sitting up late at night with his chaplain. Well one night he was comfortably ensconced in his study chair, with feet against til...

A GENEROUS BETTING MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

A GEPNEROUS BETTING MAN. Ir. Rt. (aton \Voodville, tihe famous battle artist, tells, in his volume of re collections, at good story about the late Colonel North. Once when Wood rilke wa:s staying with him a letter arrived from a bookmaker with a chequel, for £1750. * One of the next letters was from a widow, telling him of the death of her husband, a fellow-engineer of the Colonel's in Chill, and asking him to assist her a little, as she was left pen niless through no fault of her hus )and's, but by sheer bad luck.. "Yes," the Colonel said, "I remember her well; a good sort, she is, and her hus band was a white man and one of the best." Taking the bookmaker's cheque he signed his name on the back and sent it to her. The widow, who expected perhaps a £10 note, received £1,570! Another good story concerns Queen Victoria and one of the artist's pfic tures. On the eve of leaving for an expedition Mr. Woodville owed a large bill for furniture to a Tottenham Court road firm.

SHADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

SHADOWS. Many women cast ueedless shadlows aeLsus tieir married life by display Ing an open and unreasoning jealousy of the work that necess5rn5a'-noLrba much of their hubaned's time n?-? tntlon.

BISHOPS AT PLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

BISHOPS AT PLAY. Bishop Samuel Wilberforce abound ed in riddles and playful jests. lHere is a question he once asked of the then Archdeacon of Oxford: "Why is an archdeacon's apron like unwhol some food?" The good man replied, thoughtfully, that he did not know. "Because," said the bishop, "it goes against the stomach." "Who has been the greatest finan cier in the world?" "Noah. because he successfully float ed a limited company, whilst the rest of the world was in liquidation." "What is the first banking trans action mentioned in the history of the world?" "When Pharoah received a check at the bank of the Red Sea. which had been crossed by Moses and company." These lines are copied from an old book: "Written on a looking glass- I change, and so do women too; But I reflect-that women never do. "Answered by a lady If women reflected, 0 scribbler! declare, What man,. faithless man, would be blessed by the fair?" Archbishop Whateley once asked.a friend the difference between a look? In...

NEW FORM OF DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

NEW FORM OF DOOR. One of the oldest of human Inven tions is the door swinging on hinges at one side. A Belgian has devised a door ot a new type, consisting of two triangular parts which close together on a dirngonal line, running from one lower corner of the dloor opening to the opposite upper corner. The two parts, or leaves, are pivoted in such a manner that when opened they svwing into partitions in the ceiling, leaving an entirely unobstructed pass. age. Being carefully counterbalanced, the leaves require slight force to move them.

Do you recommend me to continue such a method?" To which the bishop replied:---"i must warn you that such a meteed requires the utmost care. or your ser mon may resemble a patchwork quilit or, in more Scriptural phrase. "a coat of many colors.'

ARTIFICIAL RUBBER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 17 June 1914

ARTIFICIAL RUBBER. It seems certain that the great for tunes, national and individual, of the future will depend, not on the actual resources of a given country, but on the sheer brain skill of men. Artificial lndiarubber has long been a desire. but a dream. Rubber is being used to-day for a thousand new purposes, from motor-cars to toys, and the au thentic natural article is consequnt ly rising in price ominously. It is now stated that a Professor Herries has made indfarubber from certain hydro carbon compoun;is. If he is not misled or misreported, he can make himself a monstrously rich man. and groatljy enrirh his country also. The expcndi lure on rubber is immense. It is be coming Increasingly clear that the fu ture triumphs of trade will trace back to the laboratory, the library, and the University; countries will be made 4.cher by possessing thickers than by possessing coal mines.
