Out of Doors. Man the Meddler. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 19 October 1917
Out of Doors. By William North. Man the Meddler. I sort of hinted the other day that, pleasant as it would be to see mem bers of the parrot tribe amongst our less gaily-colored British birds, it is perhaps just as well that the sight is likely to be restricted to that of an occasional fugitive, such as the para keet of Kensington Gardens. The ac climatisation game is fascinating, but dangerous. It is also apt at times to prove disconcertingly easy. Let it not be forgotten that the rat was "intro duced," if by accident; that many un beloved insects were never intendled for this part of tile world; that our most troublesome water-weed was first brought over fromnt tile Contitnent quite unintentionally. WVith these, and scores of similar instances, to serve as a wanting, we really should be careful iow we introduce pleasing strangers into our family circle. Man apparently has always had a tweakness for trying to transplant birds and beasts antI ilowers. Nature :ays, "Now this will just...
SLIPS OF SCRIBES. QUAINT AND CURIOUS ERRORS INTO WHICH WRITERS HAVE FALLEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
SLIPS OF SCRIBES. QUAINT AND CURIOUS ERRORS INTO WHICH WRITERS HAVE FALLEN. "All in the boat rowed splendidly. but none so fast as No. 6." - Fortunately. "No. 6" was only a hero in fiction-"Ouida" was respons ible for his extraordinary behaviour in one of her novels--or one trembles to think what he would have suffered at the hands of the rest of the crew and the coacl;: and it is to minimise ridiculous blunders getting into print that a new profeesion of feminine ad' viser to men novelists has recently been created in Paris. The idea has distinct points to re commend it. Everybody who writes much must frequently come face to face with diffculties owing to lack of expert knowledge of particular things and phases of life ; and, although a writer must be a kind of jack-in-all trades, in a sense, he-or she-would need to be a veritable walking en cyclopaedia to avoid making blunders now and then. - BATTLESHIPS AT PEKIN. I know this to my own personal sorrow, as a rather prolific inflict...
BRITISH EARTHQUAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
BRITISH EARTHQUAKES. Great Britain, fortunately for us, has not for centuries past safered to any apprectable degree from earth quakes, although crossed by earth quake waves about one hundred times a year. But if wo are to be lieve the old chroniclers we were not so immune formerly. For instance, accordint to Holinshed, there was in 1101 "the horrid spectacle all over England of buildings being lifted up and .then again..nettled down with groat; dam e.:' There was a great earthquake in London on St. Valen tine's Eve, 1247, and there was an other notable earthquake in 1530, which set all the bells ringing in the Metropolis, and so frightened good Queen Bess that she caused a special prayer to be composed to be used by all householders and their families be fore going to bed.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. It is better to use a wooden spoon than one of metal when stirring milk or soup; .and before using baking tins you should grease them inside either with butter or lard. In order to pre vent them from burning it is as well to take the precaution of sprinkling the shelves of the oven with salt. Apple, potato, and most other stains, can be removed from the hands by rubbing them with oatmeal moistened with lemon juice or vine gar. A nail-brush should be used all round the finger nails. When thd stain is quite removed, wash with warm water and soap. Never use soap before removing the stain, or it will be 10 times more difficult to re move. It will be well to remember that a pound of sugar is one pint, an ounce of lioxfid is two tablespoonfuls, and a pint of liquid weighs 16 ozs. Ammonia is an excellent remdey for the bites and stings of insects. It should be applied immediately, it possible. Mildew is very difficult to remove. One method is to rub the spot with lemon jui...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
Word has been received by Mr George Paternoster from the Defence Depart ment that his'son, Private G. A. Pater noster, better known as "Artie," aged 24, has beenlvounded in the left hand, arm and hea8, but fortunately not dangerously. He is. lying- in the Southern- General Hospital,- Ports mouth, England. Both for his own sake and his parents we. wish him a speedy recovery. -?An examination in connectiorn with the Methodist?- Sunday .school was recently held in Pakenbam. The text book, which was an exceedingly difli. cult one, was Dr Workmah's "Method ism." Owing to the wet night and other difficulties, only four candidates sat for the ex.im. at the parsonage. Mr Rowlands has just received word that three out of the four passed. Their names are: Harry James, Roy Wright and Hilda Norris. The latter gained the highest number of marks 78 out of a possible 100. She will re ceive a credit certificate, and the others pass certificates. They competed against the largest Sunday schools in V...
Ladies' Column. RICE AS A HEALTH FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
Ladies' Column. I ;---a--- 1 RICE AS A HEALTH FOOD. Considerable attention has been di rected towards rice as a health food since the ightingi quallties of the Japanese have been so widely discus sed. It has always been commonly believed that rice lacks the Ingredi ents that helps ma.e muscle for the i human body. However, the most, im portant article of diet of the Japan ese is rice, and we have recently if not before had occasion to particul Sarly note the physical stfenth * of these small people of Japan. The Philadelphia Vegeterian Society has lately been paying special attention to this subject, and has made inves tigations through Professor Knapp. who has a simple explanation of this supposed inconsistency. Rice, as it is eaten in America, is not a muscle making food simply because in Amer ican mills the outer. husks and bran of the rice kernal are removed by polishing, and thus is removed that part of the rice which contains the protein, and which is the most nut ritious part...

ABOUT ARTILLERY. MODERN GUNS, ALTHOUGH MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH PAST "MONSTERS." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
ABOUT ARTILLERY. -4----' MODERN GUNS, ALTHOUGH MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH PAST "MONSTERS." Although one is'astonished to hear of the immense size of the heavy artillery now used in war, it should be borne in mind that projectiles of even larger diameter were used long ago. The first piece of artillery recorded was made by Schwartz, a German. soon after the invention of gunpow der in 1330, while the first use of artillery in warfare was probably made by the Moors of Algeciras, Spain, in 1343. The town is situated on the same bay, and opposite. Gib raltar. It is interesting to remem ber that the present Spanish gover nor's full title is "Governor of Alge ciras and Gibraltar" an example of optimism that surely deserves to be come classical. Edward III., at Cressy, in 1346, had four pieces of cannon, and he also used artillery at the seige of Calais during the following year. STONE AMMUNITION. In Edinburgh, to which it was transferred at the request of Sir Walter Scott,...

BEWARE OF BAD BURNS. THEY CAN FATALLY POISON. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 26 October 1917
BEWARE OF BAD BURNS.! THEY ('AN FATALLY POISON. rt is usually supposed that when we suffer severe injuries through being burned or scalded, the destruction of the tissues involved causes our death. According to Dr. 'feifler this is true only indirectly. The ferments which acts destructively upon the albumen of the body, and to which death in such a case is ascribable, are not produced by.the heat, but are merely freed by it. They exist in living cells and held there is safe custody, they are only not inlurious, hut in some as yet unexplained way contribute to the well-being of the body. But the ferments of the body are dangerous things. They fur nish the constant changes which are incessantly taking place in every or ganic body, be it animal or plant. The ferments of the stomach and in testines, however, if injected into the blood, will bring the organism thus treated to death's door. It is also. known, says Dr. Pfeiffer, that certain organisms are so sensitive to certain albumen th...
