IRRESISTIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
IRRESISTIBLE. I was sitting in front of the win dow watching the sunbeams dancing playfully around the room. The door opened and the figure of a wo man stole softly, on tiptoes, across the room and stopped just behind me. I was too absorbed in the frolic of the sunbeams to notice that she had kneeled there. Then a queer. Irre sistible desire to laugh came over me. I tried to move, and failed. Tile terrible, overpowering sensation of mirth drove everything else out of my mind! Squirming, twisting, pull ing, kicking, I tried to release myself from the arm that clutched me so tightly! My efforts were in vain, and I was compelled to give up to the un controllable, rollicking, hilarious laughter that shook me from head to foot. Tears streamed from my eyes and uproarious shrieks of laughter filled the room .... I was two years old, and mother was tickling my toes!
TO TELL A FISH'S AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
TO TELL A FISH'S AGE. Could you tell the age of a fish if asked to do so? It has been found that the age of a fish may be read from its scales. These increase in size by annular ~growths, two rings being formed each year. The "otoliths." or ear stones. which lie in two sacs on either side of the base of cranial cavity, afford an other means of determination. Like the scales, the otoliths lncrease by two rings annually. Each spring a white ring is formed, and each au tumn a black one. Thus the number of either white or black rings in an otolith gives the age of the fish in years. In the case of flatfish the lat ter method has been found more relia ble, whereas in the case of the cod the scales give a better result Although varying much in size and shape in dit ferent species, the otoliths show a re markable constancy in the same spe cies; hence thoy are of considerable value in the diagnosis of a species.

WHAT TO WEAR AND HOW. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 23 November 1917
WHAT TO WEAR AND HOW. The skin should be kept clean and warm and should have air. To keep the body healthy. clothes should not be tight (declares the National Safe ty Council). In cold weather we shouldi wear light-weight clothes while in the house. Upon going out of doors put on heavy outer clothing. Do not wea;r a tight hat. It cuts oIff thes blood front tile skin of the head and mnakes you bald. A soft hat is the best. Do not cripple your feet with tight shoes. Shoes that fit cost no more. After washing overalls or shirts, that have become very soiled, soak them for an hour in weak coldt water starch. and afterwards wring out ar.d dry. The next time you wash them the dirt will come out easily. When scissors get blunt, sharpen them by opening and movinu back wards and forwards on a piece I! iglass. .Messrs. W. Reynolda and Son Pty.
