HOW A DIAMOND CUTS GLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 December 1917

HOW A DIAMOND GUTS GLASS. It has been ascertained by a series of experiments that a diamond does not cut the glass file-fashion, but forces the particles apart, so that a continuous crack is formed along the line .of the intended cut. The crack, once begun, very small force is nec essary to carry it through the glass, and this the piece is easily broken off. The superficial crack, or cut need not be deep; a depth, according to fine measurements, of a 200th part of an inch is sufficient to accomplish the purpose, so that the application of much force in using the diamond only wears out the gem without do ing the work any better. Numerous stones, such as quartz, and other minerals, when ground into proper form, will cut glass like a diamond, but are not so valuable for that pur pose, lacking the requisite hardness, and soonr. losing the sharp edge nec essary to make the operation a suc cess.

GIRLS—LOOK YOUR BEST. A SHREWD LADY GIVES SOME VALUABLE DRESS HINTS FOR SUMMER DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 December 1917

GIRLS-LOOK YOUR BEST. A SHREWD LADY GIVES SOME VALUABLE DRESS HINTS FOR SUMMER DAYS. "Come dressed just like you are. I want the home folks to see you look ing your best." As my soldier fiance said this I looked questioningly at him. To tell the truth, I had run down at his un expected arrival in my working dress, though I had picked up an old lace fichu from my drawer and put it on hurriedly. My boy was not joking, however. It was the lace that had captivated him. He said he had never seen me look so nice. Since that day I have studied men and find, as a class, they simply love lace fripperies, and everything that is feminine. - There is no need for a girl to buy a new costume or blouse-she -need not even go to the trouble of renov ating an older one-so long as she can find some lace or tulle or net, and her clothes are otherwise clean and not torn. Thus, she can please man down to the ground. A WAVE OF SENTIMENT. We have had a much higher mar riage rate lately, but it is not what ...

WAR "SPECIAL." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 December 1917

WAR "SP'ECIAL." We must not print any information likely to encourage the enemy, but we thinlc we may defy the censor by pub liehing the following "It is stated that the. Allies left is trying to move roulnd the Germans' right, but the Germans' right is also moving round the Allies' left. Now if the left of the Germans' right moves round the right of the Allies' left, then what is left of the Germans right bust be right where the Allies left. But if the Germans' right's left is left right where the Allie?' left right was. right before the Allies' left, then the left is left right where the right was right before the left's right left the right's left." What a wonderful thing -military strategy is, isn't it ? 21L3.

WHEN THEY LANDED. Little Joseph was boasting about his family. "Our folks came over with the Con queror," he declared proudly. "Oh, that's nothing !" said Teddy. ,"I guess they stayed with our folks the first night after they landed." Young Lovum was waiting in the drawing room for his loved one to appear, when her small brother came in. "Well Claude," said Lovum, "what did your sister say when you told her I was waiting ?" "Why she didn't say nothing," re plied the small brother. "She just took a ring off one finger and put it on another." A beggar boy made application to a farmer's wife for relief, and was refused, on which the boy, with an arch look, informed the good dame that if she would give him a slice of bread and cheese he would put her in possession of a secret which would be of service to her all the days of her life. The boon was granted, and the boy, agreeably to his word, remark ed: "If you knit u knot on your thread you will never loose your first stitch" A long suff...

"That's true enough," said James; "but"-he breathed a dreary sigh "what's the good of that when you've used up all your blessed bait?"
