HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When baking pies or tarts, don't stand them on the top of the hot stove after they are done, as that makds the pastry soft and sodden. Rubbing with a cloth dipped in paraffin will not only clean but also greatly improve the appearance of a shabby black iron bedstend. After baking a cake stand the tin directly you take it from the oven on a cloth which has been wrung out of hotwater. Leave a few minutes then turn out. The cake will come out without any trouble. When papering a small room rem ember that large patterns and dark colours will make it appear smaller, while a plain or striped paper, of a light hue, will give an impressionr, of increased size and airiness. It is said that if new tinware be rubbed with lard and thorou;hly heated in the oven before being ueed it will prevent it from rusting. To remove ink-stains from boards, apply spirits of salts with a piece of cloth, afterwards washing well with water. Silk stockings, coloured or black, should never be was...
A. Victor Leggo and Co. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
A. Victor Leggo and Co. An interesting exhibit of Australian products at the recent Royal Show was that of A. Victor Leggo and Co.. from tl eir works at Yarraville and Bendigo. This enterprising firm has come to the assistance of pastoralists, orchardists and manufacturers by making many chemicals formerly im ported. "Vallo" powder sheep dip should be welcome to pastoralists. In practical tests it has proved its effi cacy, and the manufacturers report a growing demand. It would be to the advantage of each sheep owner to practically test the merits of this pro duct. From its peculiar appearance "Vallo" mineral wood caused many In quiries. For insulating purposes it is superior to any competing material. It is used largely by makers of stoves, fire-proof safes, ice-chests, Incubators. and fireless cookers. Death and de struction to all pests which worry our orchardists are provided by "Valln" brand sprays, so well known to or chardli ts throughout the Common wealth. Curious people wer...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

Mr A. C. Prendergast, of" Hill side," had the misfortune to have his sheds and machinery destroyed by fire on Thursday of last week. Much dam age was done by the conflagration and Mr Prendergast will be at considerable loss. Private Harry Worship, who was one of the first who enlisted from Pakenham, returned from the front a few days ago and was warmly welcomed by his many friends. The anniversary services of the local Methodist church will be con ducted on Sunday next by the Rev. B. Crisp, of M1ordialloc.

A NEEDLE THREADING WRINKLE [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
A NEEDLE THREADING WRINKLE Threadting needles would not be the painful task that it is to so many aged needle-women did they know of the labour saving device invented by ia certain woman. She simple took a reel of cotton and a paper of needles, and, without breaking the cotton, threaded the whole packet of needles ans if they had been so many bends. When her mother, whose eye-sight has failed, wishes to sew, she takes the first needle, draws off as long a thread as desired, fastens the next needle to the cotton, and so on until the last needle has been taken. Then of course, her daughter has to begin threading the. needles-all over again.

The State Elections, [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
The State Elections, Mr W. S. Keast addressed a large meeting of electors in Pakenham on Wednesday evening. Mr W.' Close occupied the chair. Mr Keast, after referring to the fact that he had represented the electorate for eighteen years, went on to review the work of Parliament during the past three years-the war period. He said that on the outbre2k of war he found that foodstuffs required in Victoria were being sent away, and he at once lodged a protest with the Premier and brought the matter under the notice of Parliament, with the result that some of the exporting was stopped. He felt that as a representative of the people their interests should have his first consideration. We were passing through critical times, he said, and Australia was fortunate in having Great Britain to help her in the way of finance by purchasing all her surplus produce, more particularly her wheat and wool. Unfortunately owing to the strike our shipping was held up, and our produce could not be got away....
A CHEAP FLOOR STAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
A CHEAP FLOOR STAIN. To get a good dark floor stain at a very small cost, put two ounces of permnanganate of potash into one gal lon of water, and mix thoroughly until quite dissolved. Paint it evenly over the boards you require stained, and when quite dry give it a second coat, and it will then be a nice clark brown. The next day it will require a liberal polish with boiled lineed oil, and the day after with beeswax and turpentine; and after two or three polishings with the latter the floor will have an excellent polish.

The main business was the question of co-operative packing sheds for this district. The meeting unanimously de cided that this association take steps to erect or hire a shed or sheds in the district, and that it is preferable to hire rather than incur the expense of building at the present time.

HIS WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
HIS WAY. Men who can turn their hands to any sort of Job that needs doing are very useful as husbands. Mr. Pickles was one of these useful gentlemen. His amiable wife once asked him to hang a picture she had purchased for the parlor, and he said that he would do it "in a jiffy." "You just get me the cord and a picture hook," he said to his wife, "and tell the servant girl to run down into the cellar and bring up the step ladder and carry it into the parlor., and where's those two little screw thingummys that go into the back of the frame at the sides to put the cord through? Look them up for me; and. I shall require the gimlet to bore a little hole for the screws. Somebody get the gimlet, or maybe I can drive them in with a hammer. Perhaps a chair would be better than the ste ladder. Somebody go out into the kitchen and get me a chair. I don't w-ant to stand on one of the parlor chairs. Got that cord? Just mea sure off about the right length, and fasten it to those little things at ...

WEAR AND TEAR OF THE INTERNAL ORGANS. SLEEP, THE RESTORER, MENDS THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
WEAR AND TEAR OF THE INTERNAL ORGANS. SLEEP, THE RESTOREIR, MENDS THEMI. We all know how shock will change a mar's face, but that it can alter, let us say, the complexion of his liver is much more startling. It is so however, and it indicates why our habits, as eating, drinking and work ing, may materially raise or depress our activation index, and the same is true of the external emotional influ ences of life, which we only partially control, if at all. Lying under fire for the first time while waiting for orders to charge, is perhaps, the most trying ordeal for the soldier. His instinct urges him to face the oncoming enemy. His kinetic system is speeded to the ut most. He is "activated" for a fierce physical attack. He is under extreme emotion. He is drenchwl with per spiratioi. In mechanistic terms, the things manifested by the soldier wait ing under fire may be interpreted simply. INCREASED SWEATING AND THIRST. His brain is activated by the ap proach of the enemy. The activated ...
WAR AND THE BIBLE. What the Prophetical Books Reveal. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
WAR AND THE BIBLE. What the Prophetical Books Reveal. Of course, there will always be scoffers at any attempt to elucidate Biblical prophecy, or to compute the apparently mystical figures given in the Books of Daniel and the Revela tion, but in reading treatises on these matters, written years before the war, based upon Biblical reckoning, one is struck with the remarkable fact that almost all the writers pitch on 1914 for the beginning of the world war, which, they aver, the Bible dis tinctly forecasts. The conclusions of these writers may be summed up thus: "The time of the end" is to last for seventy-five years, from 1870 to 1945, and that per fod of it which is called the "Great Tribulation" is to last for three and a half years, commencing in the year 1914. For instance, a well-known Biblical student writing years before the war, says that the final time of tribulation "will come in the epocIh of April, 1914. and October, 1O145" and he actually names October 6, 1915, as marking...
What Our Soldiers Are Doing. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
What Our Soldiers Are Doing. "We have no time for religious work, but to be among the men in this forward push and give them, when they are absolutely dog-tired and weary, something to help them along is to me a Christian act in it self." So writes Mr. J. R. Falconer, military secretary of the Y.3LC.A with Australian troops in France. "I recently left for the first stage of the forward area work," he says, "and while here I have had a proper taste of what war means. For in stance, on Sunday last a German Taube came over and left us a son venir in the shape of two holes in the roof of our marquee, while on the same night, while service was in full swing, an alarm of gas was sounded. and we had to stop proceedings for i minutes while everybody got their gas helmets ready. On Monday I went still further forward close to the firing line to open up a coffee stall to pro vide hot drinks, etc., to the men going up to and coming down from the trenches. This proved a most service able work, ...
THE MINIATURE PICTURE CAMPAIGN. Each Picture Costs 1/-. One Will Be Worth £5000 [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917
THE MINIATURE PICTURE CAMPAIGN. Each Picture Costs 1/-. One Will Be Worth £5000 £5000 for 1/-. In these sordid days it sounds almost too good to be true. Nevertheless it is the sum which the holder of the winning ticket in the miniature picture campaign, in aid of St. Vincent's Hospital, MIel bourne, will receive on December 8 from Yr. John TVren. Soon after this campaign was start ed. Mr. Wren, who hs a life governor of the institution realises the magni ficent work done there, announced his intention of purchasing the winning miniature for £5000. He made two conditions. The first that the whole 500.000 miniatures were sold; the sec ond that there were no "free minia tures." If all the pictures are not sold Mr. Wren will still give £1000. In addition, an anonymous donor has given money for the purchase of 49 other pictures These will be paid for at the rate of £120 to £5.
