SUMMER FOOT COMFORT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
SUMdliER FOOT COMFORT. -low many of the hot weathcr tan tr:ums people indulge in are due to aching feet? The percenta-ge is a large one. So much has been done to spoil thle feet of mel, and women that it is almost impossible to tind a perfect foot on an adult-that is to say, a foot that is beautiful in i!ne, has perfect toe-nails and is free from corns. The average foot is still a thing to be hidden away. And there are few of us who would dare to wear sandals and go out without shoes and stockings. If the feet have the slightest tend ency to hurt, to be sore and irritat ed, to grow corns or to produce bun ions, that tendency shows itself in the summer time, and if the boots or shoes are made of badly or care lessly cured leather and burn the feet, or are cut on the wrong shape, or are badly soled or heeled, the dis comfort to body and mind is always Sincreased as soon as the hot weather comes. CHANGE STOCKINGS CONSTANTLY. First of all, the health of the feet depends on cleanliness. ...
WONDERFUL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
WONDERFUL INVENTIOiN. Thomas A. Edison was talking of some of the queer anti-submarine in ventions that had been submitted to the National Defence Committee. "The best I can say of them," he declared, "is that they remind me of the lunatic." "A lunatic in an asyhmn once said to a visitor : "'I ain't a lunatic, mis ter.. I'in as sane as you are. I'm an inventor I am. I've got an invention that is going to make me a second P.ockefeller. Here let me explain it to you." "The lunatic took out a pencil and an old envelope and drew a bird cage. "There you are," he said. "That's the invention. Just a cage, an ordni ary bird cage, but you'll observe on this side a door with a heavy knob. "Now, then you see, we take this bird cage and put her on a bronze pedestal 17ft. high, the pedestal standing on a marble slab. We place a 17ft. ladder on the right side of the pedestal, leading up to this door and a 17ft, ladder on the opposite side leading to the other door. "Now, what happens ? A fly come...
ONION BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
ONION BUTTER. This will keep for weeks in a cold place and will give flavour to many a tasteless warmed-over dish which has to be made in a hurry. Chop fine 6 onions and fry in twelve table spoonfuls of butter, stirring all the time, until the onions are brown and shrivelled, but not black. Put them through,a fine strainer into a tumbler and, when the butter has hardened, cover with melted paraffin. Use a teaspoonful when needed for flavour ing in stews, gravies, brown sauce, etc.
WHITE SAUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
WHITE SAUCE. To kuow how to make a good white sauce is,one of the most useful items in the careful ,cook's repertoire, since by means of it very palatable dishes may be made of many kinds of scraps that would otherwise go to waste. To make it, take 2. tablespoonfuls of flour, 2 tablespoonfuls of butter, 1 cup milk, salt and pepper to season. Mlelt the butter in a pan, then add to it the flour and let it thicken. Add half of the cup of milk and cook and beat vigourously until it is creamy, then add the rest of the milk and keep stirring until done. If you have a wire whisk, beat well with it for a few minutes. Do not add the salt and pepper until it is ready to take from the fire. A good white soup stock may be used instead of the milk, and butter may be added if liked. For a white sauce many pre fer white pepper. If some potatoes are left over, a nice variation is ob- i tained by slicing them, covering with the sauce and baking. Serve very hot. A little grated cheese may be added if...

Ladies' Column. RATIONING THE YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
Ladies' Column. liATI(ONING THE YOUNG. Dr. D. S. Davies, me lical oflicer of hIealth of Bristol, has recorded a rec ent elperience of revising the dieting of an institution of growing boys which han warned him that consider able life-long iniury might be cansed to boys and girls by insisting upon a too ,trclet regime. It is rightly stated that children need plentiful food for three reasons : first, their SuLrface is large compared with their weight: eocondly. they are growing ; andt thirdly, they. are almost always very active compared with many adults. A child of eight needs half as much as a grown-up and a child of twelve three-fifths as much, while a girl of sixteen needs as much' as her mother anda boy of sixteen may eat as much as his father. In these cases the foundations of fresh tissue for developement are being laid down, and this goes on until the phase is reached of complete manhood and womanhood. Upon the conditions of nutrition of growing boys and girls depends, as the ...

SENT TO CURE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
SENT TO CURE IT. At the autumn assizes in a Midland town a respectable looking man was charged with an extensive series of thefts. The facts were admitted, and the only witness for the defence was a medical .man, who testified that in his opinion the prisoner was suffering from kleptomania. "Kleptomania ?" inquired the judge gravely. "What is that ?" "Er-a disease, your lordship," said. the witness, evidently surprised. . "What kind of a disease ?" "Well-er-a mental disorder that causes the subject to appropriate property not his own," stammered the medical man. "Makes him steal, in fact 7" "Yes, my lord, that is generally the effect," he admitted. "I.know the disease," said the judge, grimly. "I know the disease -I am sent here to cure it." The learned professor was talking the usual nonsense to the baby. "No, no, oo mustn't tick oo's footay--" Just the he caught sight of the vis itor, blushed furiously, and muttered : "No, 'no ; you must not expose your pedal extremities by extend...

Ahern) being in the chair. REPORT AND BALANCE SHEET. The following report and balance sheet were received and adopted: Report. We, the Officers and Committee, have pleasure in submitting to you the Statement of Receipts and Expenditure for 1917-the 6th Annual show. Not withstanding the adverse season, the exhibits compared more than favorably with past events. The takings at the gate were,however, some £13 less than formerly, owing to the bad weather during the greater part of the day and the postponement of a fortnight of the usual date of holding our show on account of its clashing with various patriotic events, which no doubt affected the attendance. The introduction of horse and pony in the place of running, jumping and bicycle events proved attractive...

QUITE AN ANGEL. A bachelor was recently travelling in a tramcar with a married couple of his acqunTintance. It was a rainy morning. The young wife had her mbrella well out of the way of thoee who passed down the .car, but an awkward boy on his way to the door managed t. fall over it and break it. "Oh, I am so sorry," stammered the lad. "Never mind ; I'm sure it wasn't your fault, and the lady smiled up at him without a trace of anger or even irritation on her face. "Well, I must say your wife is an angel !" exclaimed the bachelor, warmly. '"Mos~t women would have withered that clumsy fellow with ,a look, if they hadn't scorched him with words." "An angel, is she !" said the mar ried man, as he picked up the broken umbrella and smiled quizzically at his wife. "She may be--but she's want ed a new nmbrella for a month, and now she knows that I'll have to get it !"

MEAN TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
MEAN TRICK. The De Jones' lawn was a Iawn in name only. It was really an arid desert-bald, so to speak, and in dry weather it was always as dusty as a motor track. To the astonishment of Mrs. De Smythe, who lived next door, she one day saw her devoted husband turning the garden hose on the De Jones "lawn." "Well, I never," she exclaimed. "I'- sure I wouldn't trouble to lay dust in Jones' back yard, John, es pecially as they are such a hateful lot of gossips. Small thanks you'll get for you trouble anyway." "That's all right, my dear. Their darling little Fido was washed snow white this morning. Now he's out there rolling. like a barrel and rub bing the mud well into his fleecy coat. Trust your husband, my sweet, for real unadultered thoughtfulness."

COTTON FOR SHELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 30 November 1917
COTTON FOR SHELLS. It is estimated that it takes 4001b. of cotton to make the powder for one shot from the German 17in. guns. The same quantity of cotton would provide ammunition for 400 shells from a field-gun, or 80,000 rounds from a rifle. Some Idea of the consumption of cotton in the way may be gathered from the fact that 1000 tons a day are required to supply the German and Austrian! armies with powder. The British cordite consists of two thirds gun-cotton. The raw material Is dipped into nitric acid, washed and dried, and the material thus supplied becomes the base of the explosive. Gun-cotton can only be made from raw cotton; woven cotton is of no use, and any attempt to use it would be fraught with danger. Farmer (to medical man): If you go out my way any time, doctor, I wish you'd stop and see my wife. I think she ain't feelin' well. Doctor: What makes you think so?

FIVE FIlENDS. "When Germany," said Representa tive Gardincr at a Washington recep tion, "'began the uae of asphyxiating, gas-a thing forbidden by the Hague Convention-she put the responsibil ity on England, saying that England had begun the use of these gasses first. "For all her crimes Germany gen erally lays the responsibility on othere. "Germany is like Smith's friends. Smith, motoring in the country. broke down miles from anywhere-no telephone or telegraph-and Mrs. Smith waited until ten o'clock for him, and then sent oilff five telegrams to his five best friends in town, say ing: "Is John spending the night with you ?" "The next morning Smith arrived home at breakfast time in a farm wagon, with the broken automobile in tow, and a few minutes later a messenger brought Mrs. Smith five telegrams, the answers of Smith's best friends. Each telegram conr.tain ed the words: "Yes, John is spending the night here."
