Food Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 July 1914
Food Reform. -4--- The normal, healthy man quite rightly does not think much ahoit -hat he eats so long as it tas.tes fairly good and there is plenty of it.

Speaking the Day's Ndws. TIE LATEST THING IN NEWS PAPERS. Will the "'News-tellr" supplant the newspaper? Will the time come when the average man will learn what is happening to the world and his wife, not with his eye glued to- the newspaper propped against the marmalade-pot as he consumes the morning rasher, but with ear pressedt against the receiver of a telephone through which he will hear all the news and gossip ? To some it may seem a remote possibility, but in view of the fact that for the last twenty years a telephonic daily has been in active operation at Budapest, lHungary, and, furthermore, that preparations for a similar enterprise are in an advanced stage in London, while it is also being introduced into Berlia and Paris, it will he obvious that the telephonic daily,, like the cine ma newspaper, which 'shows the news on-the screens of the picture palaces every night, has generally arrived.

MELBOURNE HOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 15 July 1914
MIELBOURNE HOUNDS. The ment o~- th! Melbourne Hounds at L yde on Thursday last at quar er t' 12 a.:n resulted in a good day's sport, but the hard showers during the day gave the field a thorough drenching. Operations first began in Mr L. Twyfora's triangular paddock, which. strange to say, did not hold a single fox. On 4coming out on to Bullarto road a fox was seen to cross Mr Mullin's, to wards the north. In no. time the hounds were clapped o', and threaded their way down a gully with saplings fo- about a mIle, until reynard came to a wire netted paddock, which he could not get over, and fell a victim to ith pack. Attentions were next devoted by the master to Messrs Heffernan's and Coll's, but most of th3 cover from these -:o pro gerties have been removel, so there was little chance of find ing. However a move was made in the righc dir ctior, when a small portion of Mr Gibb's was crossed into, for the hounds.ejec ted a fox from it. The field were all waiting anxiously on the Berwic...

Riding Under the Train. -4---- SOME MARVELLOUS ADVEN TURES BY ACCIDENT AND DESI(ON. Quite recnutly, when the ollicials at Victoria Sltation, Nottingham, n'ere examining the wheels of a Manchestser to I.ondon express, at three o'clock an.., they were sin ply flabhbergausted to find a boy hanging firmly to part of the mle chanism of the brakes. The lad afs absolutely stiff with cold and exposure, and told the otlicials that he had travelled in that manner all the way from Manchester, al distanre of eighty miles. His story was that on the previous Saturday he had walked from Glossop, his home, to Manchester, and, having no money to pay his fare back, he had se creted hirself under the carriage of a train- which he understood was go ing to Glossop, but which turned out to he -the express for London ! Later inquiry showed that this was not the first time the boy had rid den in such an undesinrable position when journeying on the railway ! The Incident recalls the ever-fam ous ride of Mr....

THE SONG OF THE KETTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
THE SONG OF THE KETTLE. Sweet are thj songs by lovers song As they tife old, old story tell, And sweet the croon the bees among The clover blooma and asphodeL And glad the notes the skylarks trill, At dawn upon their buoyant wings; But dearer, softer, better still, The low, sweet song the kettle sings. How strangely come to us again The pleasant scenes of other days, The happy golden moments when We went our simple childish ways; When aU life's Journey went before And gaily beckoned us with smiles, Erm we had left our father's door To go the many weary miles. There by the broad, deep firepl ce sit The aged ones with silvered hair; Across each face the flashes flit, And faded cheeks grow flushed and fair: And strangely mingle smile and tear As memory in fondness brings The old(, old days, the while they hear The low, sweet song the kettle sings. The embers throw their ruddy gleam On childish figures blithe and free That watch the changing glow, and dream Of wondrous things that are t...
Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
Rats' Tails at Fourpence Each. It is calculated that there is one rat to every acre in England and Wales, and each rodent does daen age to the extent of one farthing per day, which represents a total loss of £1,o000,000 to the country. . The annual bill for the upkeep of a small army of cats and rat-cat chers at the Londont Docks amounts to hundreds of pounds per year, and though a thousand rats are killed there every week, the offi cials cannot exterminate the pests. The whole of the civilised world is now engaged in a war of ex tenruination: against the plague carrying, unnecessary, and destruc tire rat. Australia has spent ii0). 000 upon a single structure intend ed as a barrier, and Denmark in troduced a successful Anti-Hant Bill. This Bil provided for the payment of a premium of not less than a half-penny and not more than a penny, according to the districts, for each rat capture'i, the money being supplied by a State gr;nt. flat- hunting hIcearne almost a national pastimen wit...
CHINESE BOOK-KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
CHINESE BOOK-KEEPING. The habit of keeping a daily debit and credit account with Heaven finds great favor among many inhabitant:s of China. At the end of eacth day, a pious Chinanan will take Ilis Look, and en ter therein his good and bad deeds in a business-liken manner. P'eriodically, hie calculates his mis deeds and compares them with the goo:l deeds, and by so doing hie can tell how hIe stands with Heaven. If tile misdeeds outbalance the good dleeds, hie fasts anid nlakes sacrifices. On the other hanl, it he has a few good deeds to spare, hie will indulge in "Shanmsa" (a native ldrink not uln like a mixture of whisky and parailln), andl in doing soli he domes nmany things. which he would not have done in a sober state. By doling this Ih) bal anceis his account andl begins a freinh period; a period generally lasts t.h length of a "moon." Wi' are slow to blieve that which. if blieved, would hurt our f,,lin;.
A Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
A Genatleman. - It is alnlont a deoiition of a gentleman to say he is one who never inflicts pain. This dearrip tion is both reained and, as far as it goes, accurate. He is mainly oc cupicd inl merely removing the ob sttacles which -hinder the free and unemnbarrassed action of those about him ; and he concurs with their movements rather than takes the inl liutive himself. Ils bnefits t may be considered as parallel to what are calledtI comforts or convoeniences in arrangements of a personal na tore, like an easy chair or a good fire. whith do their part in dis p!ineC coad and fatigue, thoutgh a tlrT rro- vidhs both . means of rest told animal heat without them.
