CHICKENS ELECTRICALLY HATCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
CHICKENS ELECTRICALLY HATCHED. .The superiority of the electric incu bator over any other is said to be manifestcd in a larger percentage of eggs nuccessfully hatched and more vigorous chicks. The incubators used in the experiments have double heat insulated walls, with wood or metal trays about four inches from the bottom, and are single-deckers or double-deckere, the former giving the more uniform beating, and the latter having the lower energy consumption per egg. The space below, kept at about 95deg. F., receives the chicks as they are hatched. The tempera tute of the trays is maintainedl at I02deg. for four to six days, and is then slightly raised to 103deg. until hatching.

TIPS FOR BUSY HOUSEWIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
TIPS FOR BUSY HOUSEWIVES. To remove the rusty appearance from suede shoes or slippers, use a mixture of olive oil and ink in equal parts. Whern making coffee sprinkle a little salt on the coffee before pouring the boiling water on it, and the flavour will be wonderfully improved. When preparing rhubarb, dip each stalk into boiling water. This will not injure it in any way, and you will require less sugar. In the cook ing. To scale a fish quickly, cover with boiling water ; let it remain in the water for a minute, then scrape with a knife, and the scales will come off readily. A little carbonate of soda sprinkled over fruidt when stewing will prevent the juice boiling over in a fire; it al so reduces the quantity of sugar re Squired. If a pair of shoes have become stif fened with walking in the wet, they should be washed with warm .water and then have oil well rubbed into them. To remove rain spots from light material, hold over a jug or basin of steaming water and rub gent ly with a...

NOTHING SERIOUS. WANTED IT CUT DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
NOTHING SERIOUS. WANTED IT CUT DOWN. Mrs. Stickitt, a lady notorious for her saving habits, one morning en tered the doctor's surgery. leading by the hand a stoutly-built boy of nine years of age, and of exceedingly healthy appearance. "Well, Mrs. Stickitt." said the doc tor. "who's my patient? I don't seem to recognize hbi face. Not a village boy, is he ?" "No, doctor; my nevrey from the town." "Not much wrong with him, I should say." laughed the doctor, pinching his red cheeks. "It's about his appetite, doctor," said the boy's aunt, in a low voice. "What !" exclaimed the doctor, staring at the well-fed young patient. "Surely he doesn't need an appeti cer ?" "Good gracious, no, doctor !" re plied the lady, in horrified accents. "I want you to give me summat to make 'is appetite less. 'E'll eat me out of 'ouse an' 'ome afore 'is month is tp if 'is appetite ain't cut down." "Did I dnderstand you to say that thfs lad voluntarily confessed to playing truant?" asked a school at tendance...

OFFICER MEADOW FETE. * The Oifeeir fete, held on Saturday last, under the auspiees of the local branch of the Australian Women's National League, to raise funds to purchase. milk and fruit for our soldiers at the front, was a decided success. The day was fne and there a large attendance, ,every part of the district being well represented.

Special arrangements were made for Saturday's gathering, in anticipation of a large attendance, and everything passed off satisfactorily. Attractively decorated stalls were placed in the hall and in the hall grounds, and many young ladies, dressed in costumes to represent the Allies, gave a picturesque appearance to the whole surroundings. Amusements of all kinds were pro vided for both young and old, and -an interesting musical programme, ...
HIS DECORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
HIS DECORATION. It was at an improvised review in the presence of the enemy that Napo loon for the first time granted pens ions to simple soldiers, and named them Chevaliers of the Empire, and members of the Legion of Honour. Later the chiefs of divisions niways conferred the distinctions, but the Emperor permitted the soldiers who believed that they deserved the hon our to present their claims to him in, person. So it happened that an old grenadier, who had made the cam paigns of Italy and Egypt, not hav ing been honoured by his chief, sought the Emperor and asked for the cross. "But," said Napoleon, "what have you 'lone to deserve this recom pense ?" "It was I, sire, who in the dessert of Jaffa on .a day of frightful heat, presented you with a water-melon." "I thsnk you again for it, but a gift of fruit is not worth the cross of the Legion of Ffonour." The grenadier, excited almost to the point of parorsym, cried aloud, "Eh, and do you count my wounds for nothing? My seven wounds ...

CHARACTER BORN AND DEVELOPED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
CHARACTER BORN AND DEVELOPED. There do not appear to he any special qualities common to all crim inals, and according to Sir Bryan Donkin in the "Lancct," all men are potential law-breakers. There is a clear distinction betwecn inheritance anrui reproduction. So far from a man's "make-up" heing referable either to natural-i.e., inborn-agen cies or to acquired factors--i.e., use, experience, education, and no on human characters are derived both from an inborn capacity for develop ing them and from some external stimulus appropriate for their devel opment. There is inheritance without reproduction, hut no reproduction without inheritance. Men's characters are moulcied by their environment in a fashion that no amount of statistical juggling can eliminate; the waifs and strays that enter some of our well-known chari table homes are weighted, to a high degree in many instances, by the in-* heritance of criminal capacities. but are these capacities reproduced ? The whole fabric of traini...

SPEEDING UP. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
SPEEDING UP. By WVm. North. Dean Swift-the man. not the race horse of rensown-said many clever things, yet of them all none is more widely known than that priceless sen tence in praise of the man who makes two blades of grass grow where but one grew before. Two blades of grass in place of one, that sounds reasonable, though I am not quite easy in my mind as to what the Old Dame thinks about. Three blades. That may mean overceowding. Four blades. They may well lead to dis aster. The intensive enthusiast laughs the idea to saorn. For four he substi tutes fourscore, or he 'rles to. There is no limit to his ambition. His me thods are such as the Dean never dreamed of. Rich, moist manure all but takes the place of the gentle loam Nature has prepared in the course of countless ages. Such an old stick-itn-the-mud! A bell glass pro tects the infant plants from the very breath of Heaven itself. Wind and rain alike ate regarded as foes, not friends. In the artifcal atmosphere the seedlings gr...
DEADLY TORPEDOES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
DEADLY TORPEDOES. -4--+--- The principal type of torpedo used in war is known as the automobile torpedo, the cost of which varies from .£Cd) to £1,000. The length of it is 1i4ft. to 20ft., and the weight hall a ton or more, the steel body being cigar-shaped, and consisting of four sections, firmly screwed to gether. These four sections are known as the warhead, .which. is. one-eighth of and total length, and carried the ex plosive'charge of from 2001b. to 300th of guncotton; the air reservoir; the balance chamber, which contains the mechanism -which actuates the hor zontal rudde-rs of the tail and so keeps the torpedo at its correct depth which is, of course, set before the weapon is fired; and the buoyancy chamnber, which also contains the gyroscope, for correcting any devia tion of the missile. from the line of fire. The torpedo shell travels under water at a depth of about 14ft., and at that depth shows very little dis turbance of the water on the surface. Recently, however, the ...
THE HAPPINESS OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
THE HAPPINESS OF CHILDREN. It is a child's right to be happy. and it Is the duty of those on whom it depends to see that it is happy. If parents and all who have the care of children would only remember that the happiness of children is of short duration, and of a degree that can never be enjoyed after the days of childhood, they would give more thought to the matter. A child's ca pacity for happiness is almost unlim ited, and the more this capacity is en couraged the better it is. not only for the child, but for all with whom it comes in contact. Setting aside the actual bestowing of such pleasures as give delight to the little ones, there are two infallible ways of securing their happiness. One is to create as far as possible an environment of happiness around about them; the other Is to leave them alone to enjoy the happiress they create for them selves. The recollection of a blissful childhood sheds lustre on after-life. So make your children as happy as you can. Wordsworth expr...
DUPES OF THE PALMISTS' PARLOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
DUPES OF THE PALMISTS' PARLOURS. *-4---- . During the past two years or so. there has been a scandalous increase in the number of fraudelent spirit mediums. The police do their ut most to break up the meshes of these spider women (such charlantans are usually women), but their task is a very difficult and complex one. You may be a staunch believer in spiritualism and stil deplore the wicked machinations of! these spider women. Of those who believe genuinely in spiritualism. I will say nothing; but a world-wide acquaintance of notori ous spirit mediums has convinced me that any person of average- intelli gence can reproduce the alleged "spirit" phenomena of any so-called clairvoyant. Despite the evidence of certain scientists who seriously claim to have? witnessed phenomena under trick proof conditions, I believe firmly that there is a normal explanation for erery single "wonder" attributed to the spirits. I am convinced that no meiliun can demonstrate a form of occult mani festation...
