NOT TOO OLD AT 100. Some Frisky Centenarians. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917

NOT TOO OLD AT 100. Some Frisky Centenarians. Mr. HIenry Jackson, the West Coun try farmer, who has just celebrated his hundredth birthday by dancing into the "wee sma' hours," is the lat est addition to a :ong list of grand old men and women who have carried their youth into their second century. It is not long since we were reading of that amazing veteran, Noah Roby. who took to himself a third wife a year after he had celebrated his hunu dredth birthday; and at the ripe age of 128 years thought nothing of a ten mile stroll between breakfast and din neor. For more than a century Noah had "smoked like a chimney" without the least effect on his health or lon gevity; and when last we heard of him lie was declaring confidently, "I ihope to live several years yet; though :eorge Washington, whom I saw when I was a boy has been dead a long way over a century." But even Noah had a formidable rival in Mrs, Mary Wood, of Oregon. who was cradled in 1787, and was very much alive 123 years lat...

COMPOSITORS' HOWLERS. 'rhe compositor is one of the mlost useful as well as one of the most ex act of men, but he occasionally makes a mistake. tlhat great preacher Dr. .Jowett, who is going back to Eng land fromn America to take the pa'- torate of Westminster Chapel, was iris victim on one occasion. lie was:i to speak at a mission at Birminghail. and handbills were issued to ladver tise the event. This was the last line on the bill: "Dr. Jowett and other fiends will address the meeting." IRecently a local paper, in a lauda tory notice of a V.C. who hiad been born in the town, referred to the hero, although he was well under thirty, as "the battle-scared veteran."

CLEANING OF CONCRETE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917

CLEANING OF CONCRETE. Mopping up some types of concrete foors is objectionable because the water is retained for a. considerable time, causing dampness. In other in stances the floor wears off, producing a disagreeable dust. By cleaning the floor thoroughly, and painting it with several coats of boiled linseed oil, allowing plenty of time for them to dry, the surface becomes filie.l. It wears oif to a smooth polish and the floor may he kept clean of dust eas ify, by mopping it.

SHIELDS COME AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917

SHIELDS COME AGAIN. With the advent of firearms it-was believed several centuries ago that the day of armour and shields was over for. all time, for the powerful impact of projectlles discharged from even the early muskets rendered in effective the light steel then worn. Prior to the European war, infan trymen were not provided with shields of any kind as a protection against the ride fire of the opponent. It was rather in methods of concealment, such as uniforms whose colours tend to blend with the surrounding land scape, and scattered formation that protection had been sought. The European war has ridiculed so many accepted principles of what has' hitherto been considered modern war fare that the reversion of the soldiers to shields and armour does not come as a surprise. At first, the shields were of small dimension and used solely in trenches, in order better to resist the rifle fire of the enemy. Such shields in most instances were provided with a slot of just sufficient size t...
