Women's Campaign for Men. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

Women'. Campaign for Men. Writing from the front, Mr. E. A Hunt, a military secretary of the Y.M.C.A., tells of a new order thnat has been founded to help men by a Miss Beatrice Chase. He says: "This new order is called 'The White Knight's' Crusade.' She wants all men to become 'White Knights,' but to do so, they must promise her by God's help to honor women." AIl though it is my one great pride that I have never shamed a woman. I was only too keen to become a 'White Knight' for let him who standath take heed lest he fall. Let me quote from her own letter to me: "I fee' we women can never repay you men for all you are doing for us, nor car we ever make you sutfilcient repara tion for the sins of our sex again you, so I have gathered together a host ef white prayers which are pour ed out, day and night, by good wo men, for you knights.

THE TALES OF THE FINGERS. MEDICAL VIEW OF PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

THE TALES OF THE FINGERS. M;EDICAL VIEW OF PALMISTRY. Although many men ~n tell a dyer from a doctor by the difference in stains on their hands, a certain judgea could not. The dyer, in court, was ordered to hold up his hands. They were so black that the judge, a very nearsigh.ted man said : "Friend, take off your gloves," To which the dyer replied: "I will not have to, if your Honour puts on your spectacles !" The indigos and other dyes useil by the dyer stain their hands woefully, and thLs lead to an easy recognition of his occupation. The doctor's fin ger-nails are rather greyish, because he mustso often, day inr and day out dip his fingers into germ killing solu tions which contain mercury, perman ganate of potash or other poisons, which leave their marks orn the nails. Chaffeurs and machinists also have most characteristic hands which coulc not possibly be mistaken bor those of clergymen or lawyers. Their nails are'usually black and grimy, emitting odours of lubricating oils, o...

SINGERS AND THE USE OF LUNG POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

SINGERS AND THE USE OF LUNG POWER. * A' German professor has proved by actual and very delicate measure ments that a tenor .uses only from one seventh-to one sixteenth of the lung power of the baritone or hass. The difference in the force used by the contralto and soprano is very mark ed, and the contralto who sings in very deep tones uses at 'least ten times the force of the soprano. The explanation is so simple that it is strprising that it was not thought of long ago. It has long been known that the tenor or soprano brings the vocal cords together and keeps the edges vibrating only by the emission of air. The bass or contralto leaves the space between wider open, and has to vibrate much more of the mem branes. A visitor to one of the hotels at Karlsbad was paid the most pro found attention by the manageqert. Neither he nor the other guests could figure out the cause of this marked deference until the appearance of the printed ,registrar, or Kurgast list, The visitors name and add...

NO NEAR-SIGHTED SAVAGES. HOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD VISION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

- NO NEAR-SIGHTED SAVAGES. --+--e--- OWOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD VISION. It is a curious fact that savages Sare never near-sighted. Their sight is clearer and more distinct than that of the strongest eye of any civilised mar,. To understand why this is so it is filrst necessary to make plain just what near-sightedness is. Near-sightedness is due to the un due length of the eye-ball which cause thile parallel rays of light to unite not on the, retina( the screen at the hack of the eye-ball) but in front of it. Now. while nature has achieved the seemingly impossible in fashioninr the eye, which consists otf crystalline, clear living tissue, it is not inert, in spite of the wonderful clarity of the substances -that compose it. If it were an inert mass, then it would be able to focus only perfectly parallel rays of light, that is to say, rays striking it after travelling a long distance, and this would mean only distant objects could be visual ised. Consequlently the muscles of the eye must m...

HUN HIUNITERS IN THE STATES. ------+--- No servant of a State have a more anxious and worried experience dur ing the war than its Secret Service the hidden eyes and ears of a nation, : its men and women agents engaged In securing information respecting the plots of its enemies. And no Secret S Service during the European war has surely had more exciting and terrible duties thrust upon it than the Secret Service of the United States. SMUG SATISFACTION. Ever since the day when the Boche made his war leap'at the throat of civilisation, the States, with their mil lions of German inhabitants, have been a hot bed of diabolical plots against the nations engaged in the war, and against the live, and pro perty of citizens. Since the day when Germany let loose war upon the world to the time that the-States themselves joinedl the Allies, nro fewer than sixty thousand Germans were arrested upon charges of spying and other offences.

Liberty Loan. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

Liberty Loan. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? This is meant for you. Try to picture to yourserf what your a±tion would be if you were at sea and saw an enemy submarine launch against your ship a murderous torpedo. Would you -not be roused to anger?

NOVELISTS' WIDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

NOVELISTS' WIDOWS. The recent death of Mrs. Anthony Trollope, thirty-five years after the demise of her famous novelist hus band, establishes a record in surviv als. This record, however, was almost equalled by Thackoray's widow, who survived her husband for nearly 30 years. In their case the long-wedded happiness which the Trollopes enjoy edwas not granted. Thackeray mar ried in 1836, but four years later Mrs. Thackeray's mind failed her, and Thackeray became, as it were, a widower to the end of his days. Ite died in 1863, but it was not until 30 years later that his grave was re opened and the long-parted couple were re-united. Dickens lived with his wife for 2 years, and then came the separation which caused so much talk in the 'fifties of the last century. Like the partner of his famous rival, Mrs. Dic kens survived her husband. Another case of survival was that of Mrs. Charles Kingsley, who lived for 16 years after the death of th illustrious novelist, the first few of which sh...

Developmental Roads. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

Developmental Roads. In his policy speech at Creswick on Saturday night last, the Premier made reference to a proposed scheme for opening up the country by develop mental and subsidiary roads. He said that in the past the responsibility for the construction of these roads had been thrown on municipalities, but the conviction was forced upon the Govern ment that this work was beyond the capacity of the councils, both tin ancially and otherwise. He said it was proposed to spread the expendliture over five years. The municipalitie. would not be called upon to contriblute anything towards the capital cost of the roads, but tIe cost of m:aintenance would devolve upon the councils. The loans raised would be redeemed in twenty annual instalments of £25,000 from the Victorian loans redemption fund. Interest would rise from £750 to a maximum of .£7,75. ThŽ hi;he:;t interest payable by the municipalities would amount to very little more than tl per cent. per annum on the whole loan raised. Th...

INSPIRATIONS IN CLOTHES. Zola When at Work Wore Evening Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

INSPIRATIONS IN CLOTHES. Zola When at Work Wore Evening Dress. Scores of writers, composers, paint ers. and sculptors have believed that their flood of ideas was helped by the adoption of some peculiar style of dress. M[ascagni, the famous Italian com poser, while working on his Japan ese opera, arrayed himself in a flow ing robe of Eastern style, with all his surroundings Oriental in character, gallons of coffee being consumed as necessary to inspiration. Red was a color detested by "Lewis Carroll," the creator of "Alice in Won derland," and a little girl who cane to visit'him was absolutely forbidden to wear a red frock of bright hue while in his company. Pink and grey were his favorite combinations of color. In personal matters he had a great fear of extravagance, and would only wear cotton gloves. He never wore an overcoat, and always sported a tall hat, whatever might be the climatic conditions. He was devoted to the cup. that cheers but not inebriates, and while writing "Alice...

A Ferocious Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 2 November 1917

A Ferocious Plant By William North. Told as it might be told, it would uake the most ghastly tale. A travel ler, attracted by the beauty of the spot, pauses a moment amongst a :sroup of trees. The instant he does so an appalling thing takes place., F'rom each tree there is aimed at him t quantity of viscid substmance, which holds him. despite his frantic strug. 4les, as birdlime holds a bird. This surely in itself is bad enough, but a more terrifying thing is about to hap pen. Slowly the trees, Just now erect, begin to bend over the fighting cap tive. They fold down upon him, mak ing escape doubly impossible, and as they grip him in their mighty arms they force him to the spot at whicli?it is decreed his life-blood shall be slow ly, very slowly, drained, his very flesh absorbed, until the envelope which once held a living creature becomes so poor a thing that the winds of tfeaven may bear it whither they will. A grisly tale. But absolutely true if for the travel ler we substitute a ...
