REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. It is a pathetic thing to see people struggling with reduced circumstances -that Is, a reduction of income, and an Inability to live as they have been in the habit of living. iut much heart-break would he spared if when such adverse fate comes people woulh only at once settle down and accept the new and smaller income, and live on what it will easily give them, rather than to try to "keep up appearances." Every day we see people tryingto live in a large house with -6h"i ----p maidf-of-all.work, where they had kept, and kept busy, three colnpe-tent srvants, or even more trying to keep up with the society that they can no longer afford to move In. by scrimping and toiling every where, and having no happiness andl no peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with out necessaries to pay for them; mak ing over old gowns indefinitely in or der to accept Invitations, and carrying hearts that ache harder and harder all the time.

FAMOUS WIDOWS. News comes from Knoxville, Ten nessee, of the death of "Parson" Brownlow's widow, at the age of nine ty-five years. Few people knew that until so lately there remained this liv ing link with the famous "fighting parson" of war times, whom-Tennes see expelled because of his bold at tacks upon secession, but -fterwards recalled to be its governor. Yet how many widows of distinguished men have.survived their husbands so long that they have seemed to trail phan toms of history through the living re alities of a later generation! In the town of Charlotte, N'orth Carolina, Mrs. Stonewall Jackson is still living. It is nearly thirty-eight years since Custer's last fight, yet MIrs. Custer is alive andwell. Mirs. N. P.

POINTS ON PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

POIN TS ON PALMISTHY. Smooth, conical lingers are a sign of talkativeness and levity. Strong, knotted fingers show pru dence and capaclty. A palm too slim, n:arrow, and feeble indicates instinct without capacity. If the palm is too large the person is coarse and animal-like. If the outer-Joint of the fingers forms a knot, the person has well-ar ranged ideas. The individual who hag knots at the middle joints of the fingers always has a place for everything and every thing In its place. Intellect belongs to knotted fingers, grace to smooth ones. The person whose fingers are smooth and pointed is guided wholly by In spiration, and hever has a reason for what he does. The hard, wrinkled hand 'which is opened to its full extent with' diffi culty shows fntractability, a mind without pliancy. Large hands mean a close attention to minute details. Broad nails show the owner to be bashful and gentle.

A PROTEST. Cr a'Beckett and Mr Rodd, Js.P., members of the Permit and Investigation Committee of the Berwick District Football Association sat at' the Border hotel on Friday evening last to deal with two applications for permits and a protest. PER':ITS. J. W. H. Clements and Bruce R. Clements, with clearances from the Pake ham club, applied for permits to play with the L'erwick team. Both applications were granted A good deal of time was spent in considering the interpretation of one of the rules which sets out that no p!ayer shall be en titled to play in the semi-final or final matches unless he played in half the matches. The rule is anything but clear as it does not state whether it is to be half the total matches for the season or half the matches in which the player is qualified to take part a'ter his registration. The mat ter is one that will have to be de cided by the association, and as it is a very important one, the sooner it is daalt with tile better. Neither IMr a'Peeket...

A RIVAL TO CELLULOID. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

A RIVAL TO CELLULOID. According to an American ConsulMar report from Chemnitz, a German chemist has lately perfected a pro cess which brings into competition with celluloid a new composition pos sessing similar plastic and elastic properties, but free from the easyandn somewhat dangerous combustibility common in celluloid articles. To what extent the new composition can re place celluloid is not yet definiteTy as certained. Certain technical dificul ties have recently been overcome In blowing articles of the new substance. Such hollow objects as balls, dols'1 heads, and the like are now as easL'y prepared as from celluloid. The latest application, that with regarm tv cinematograph films, is among the most important. Its manifest msuperl ority over celluloid for this purpose results from non-combustibility. A film exposed for ten minutes to the concentrated light of an are lamp does not exhibit the slightest alteration. A celluloid film, under the same condf dions, bursts into flame ...

Tired of Insuring. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

Tired of insuring. The house of a German, insured for three hundred and fifty pounds, was destroyed by fire. The company In suring exercised the privilege of re placing the burned structure instead of paying the money, much to the 4 gust of the Insurer, who wanted his three hundred and fifty pounds. "Dot house could not be puilt again for dree hontret and vifty!" the Teu ton continued to repeat over and over. "Oh, yes, it could," said the Insur ance representative. "It was an old house. For three hundred we'll build a bigger and better one." The'insurance agent endeavored to induce him to do further business with his ofice, but the old man refused to 'ntertain the idea. "I got noting to insure but 'my wife," said he stolidly. "Well, then," refoined the insurance man, "Insure her!" ? "No, indeed, I viii not!" Indignantly exclaimed the German. "If she die, den you come here and say, 'Ve vllI get you a bigger und better ,vile for two hontert und vifty. No, sir; I dakes no more Insuranc...

CHATTING AS AN ART. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

CHIATTING AS AN ART. Probably many people do not ce mider chatting to be an art; but how eompartively few there are who can practise it pleasantly, easily, and with Just those special qualities which Jus tify the title. For cthatting is not conversation; it is not mere talking. It is not speaking to a person on any special subject; it is not talking with a purpose, and yet it is not purpose tess. Some people can describe a de finite thing, a great function, a foreign town, or any scene they have ob served, with animation, but they can not chat about anything and every thing. People who dwell overmuch on their I own health, or on any other subject connected exclusively with them selves, do not chat; they carry on a sort of monologue, while their listen ers put In murmurs at intervals. There must be an element of the un expected in chatting, a slight uncee tainty as to what may come next, and not a firm conviction that before our acquaintance leaves we shall have had a dessertation on...

THE GOORKHA SOLDIERS OF THE INDIAN ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 July 1914

THE GOORKHA OLOIIERS OP TH1 INDIAN ARMY. An anecdote illustrative of theo d voted gallantry of the native soldier has been told by an eye-witnes. of the deed: In an expedition against a trouble some tribe or native hill robbers a little party of the guides, twenty-five In number, had seized a stockade, but the enemy was too strong in force to render it wise to leave the shelter and make an attack. They would have been shot down to a man if they had ventured on a sortfe. Then it was that a young Goorkha stepped forward, and saluting the British officer, said: "Sir, we mustn't stop here all day. I will jump on the top of the parapet, and the enemy will fire at me, and then we shall be able to rush on them before they can reload." So saying, he sprang upon the para pet, waved his sword, and in a loud voice hurled every epithet of Insult and disdain that his copious vocabu Iary could supply upon the enemy. In an Instant bullets by the score were whistling around him, but, strange to sna...
