WHAT I SAW AT THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 16 November 1917

WHAT I SAW AT THE FRONT. By J. M. HOOGE, M.P. I have seen and written to thous ands of discharged men on this side of the channel. The magical name of "The Front' had until then been only a dream. Now it is a reality. Previously I had heard much about it, and imagined more. Now I real iee what it is, and what it means. My immediate reason for being there was a visit to the Scottish troope. I had two companions-one the Rev. George Adam, the other that incomparable Scottish artfiste, Harry Lauder. Our purpose was to carry a breeze of the heather to the lajs who wear the kilt-Lauder in song and S story. Adam and myself in kindly er. couragement.

Harry Lauder, M.P. ? Adam, a weft-known Scottish foot bailer and a Falkirk bairn, was an energetic organising secretary, with --a fine tu...

AMAZING FACTS ABOUT STARS. Sir Frank W. Dyson, he Astronomer Royal recently stated that it is now known that the nearest star is 250,000 times as far away from the earth as the sun.

There are between 1,000 and 2,000 stars within a measurable distance of 500 million million miles, and twenty stara are known to be within 100 mil lion million miles. Recent work has shown that there are stars two or three-perhaps four thousand times farther away than the distances spoken of, and there are bodies 7,000 million times farther away than our sun.

HOW TO SPOIL CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 16 November 1917

HOW TO SPOIL CHILDREN. Laugh at their faults; encourage v.hite lier; give them their own -y; tell them pretty untruths; give tVi em what they cry for; shout at the top of your voice to them; never en courage their efforts to do better. Fly into a passion with them several times a nay; punish them if they break some trifle by accident; don't enter into their games; when they ask for information tell them to be quiet; let them think the streets are the best place to play; never take any notice of their childish sorrows. Don't have any toys or playthings tossed around the house; don't bother yourself about whose house they go to; don't trouble inviting their com panions to your house; always take part against their teachers; and try to forget as much as possible that you were once young yourself.

Paderewski's Modesty. Reginald de Koven recently told a story in praise of modesty. "A group of tourists," he said, "visited Von Beethoven's house. One of the tourists, a girl of twenty or so, sat down at Beethoven's piano and played the ".'Moonlight Sonata,' none too well-Beethoven's own work, in his own room, on his own piano! "When the girl had finished she arose and said to the caretaker: "'I suppose lots of famous musi cians have been here and played on this instrument?' "'Well, miss,' the caretaker an swered gravely, 'Paderewski was here last year, and his friends urged him to play, but hlie shook his head, and said: "'No; I am not worthy.'"

The War Savings Movement. What the Empire is Doing. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 16 November 1917

The War Savings Movement. What the Empire ais Doing. By J.H.C. Last week I told of the great econ omic fight which the olaid country had put up; this week we will take note of what other parts of the Empire have done. New Zealand has issued two war loans. The other day, without any fuss, she put up 12 millions at one effort, and, together with the sale of war savings certificates, has now raised about £25 per head of the population. Canada, at the commencement of the war, was loaned some 50 millions by Great Britain. She has since then paid that off, and has advanced Bri tain some tens of millions herself. A ferment has run through the people of Canada, leaving them strongly united. deeply loyal, and lending the whole of their energies to the war. The war savings movement has been taken up strongly over there. South Africa has been mainly ab sorbed in fighting the Germans in South West and now East Africa. She has raised an internal loan, and also. through the banks, millions of her...
