FREAKS OF THE TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914
FREAKS OF THE TIDE. To the ordinary lay mind the tides along our coast are most puzzling. tie knows that the tides rise and ftll! twice in twentyfour hours, and that this depends in some mysterious way upon tile moon. But if in his tr:avels he sees a spot along the shore where t.ere is no tide he is at a loss to ac count for it. To be exact, there is only one ocean in the world where the tides follow tle moon with regularity, and this is thle great Antarctic basis. And the reason is that there is the only place a sweep of water is to be found that is entirely uninterrupted by land. The enormous waves caused by the moon's attraction course round the world south of Cape Horn and the Cape of Good nope, with absolutely nothing to break them. In the Northern Hem isphere great masses of land inter rupt the tidal waves, and, combined with the shallowness of the inland seas, cause them to perform antics which seem most strange. The depth of water has much to do I with the tidal Irregulariti...

"Because, George." she answered, "when we were first married it used to take you a whole hour Just to say good-night, and n-now"-tears inter rupted her words, and ran down her cheeks-"-you can k-kiss me and c-catch your your train all in four minutes!"

Trams on Holy Ground. -4--~--- The statement that Jerusalemn and its vicinity are to be moriernisedr by the laying doani of an electric lighting plant and the construction of a water supply, from WadyForah, and a tramway between the 'city and Bethlehem, causes little dii quiet in quarters where any "andalisnm in Jerusalemn woull be resented most keenly.

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914
FOOTBALL, Berwick met Soring Vale on Saturday last at Spring Vale and suffered defeat by 3-9 to 2-5. Bruce Clements made his first appearance with the team and will be a decided acquisition. The goal getters for the Vale were Alford, Blackburn and Pat terson. For Berwick F. Miller and O. Espie. Owing to the congested state of the game the players were unable to do themselves justice. The absence of Bob Munro owing to a kncck the fprevious Saturday was a considerable handicap. Fred Fritzlaff met with a re grettable accident, getting the little finger of his right hand broken. The central umpire, Davis, did not give satisfac i n to either side, as he failed to keep proper control of the game. Next Saturday Dandenong visit Berwick and wih a good umpire a fine game may be anti cipated. Dandenong has so far" been unbeaten and will be sure to have their best 18 afield. Ber wick wiil also he strongly repre- sented. It is probable that Beau mont or McMiIIan will have the whistle. Next seaso...

Indian Heraldics. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 8 July 1914
Indian Heraldics. I 'Alert Bay, an old Indian village on Vancouver Tslandro, Alnaska, pos sesses the most complete collection of totem poles to Ie founld any where on the Pacific coast. 'They represent the family heral dies of the Siwash or Coast In dians, and every house has its own totem pole, consisting of figures of birds and animals and other monstrosities :rudely carved in wood and quaintly coloured. The top figure represents the crest of the owner of the house, the one beneath it that of his wife, and the re Imaining ones those of his wife's jrelatives. As a rule, there are only three or four figures carved on a totem, and only the totems of the greatest chiefs have six figures car ved on them. This custom seems to have origi nated In the transmigratory idea of the souls of men passing into the forms of birds and animals, and is interesting as showing that the In dians had some faint idea of a supernatural power.

Addresses rwere delivered and a numlsr of songs were sung by the children Cr a'Beckett, chairman of the school committe e, gave a shcrt address on the pleasure mnd utility of tree-planting, and gave some valuable hints as to the methods to be adopted and the choice of trees. He also referred to the tree-planting that had been done in Berwick and Hark away road. Dr Langmore spoke of the effect trees had on the water supply of a country and referred to Paradise Gully, near Emerald, and the Danderong ranges. He pointed out that the trees ac tracted and collected the moisture from the atmosphere, and said that the diminished water supply in many of our rivers and creeks was mainly due to the cutting down of the timber. In places the timber was dense and some of it had to be removed to pro vide for settlement, but in the interests of the country, which neede...
