TORPEDOES FROM THE SKY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
TORPEDOES FROM THE SKY. (By CLARENCE WINCHESTER, the well-known writer on air-craft.' It has often occured to me that perhaps the comparatively new scien ce of aviation will bring the making of wars to an end by reason of the very terrible consequences which will fall upon those nations which, in the future, have the temerity to declare war upon each other. To think that within a few hours of the declaration of war a dread, whirring noise will be heard approach ing the big towns and military cen tres of the combatants, foretelling whol6sale murder and destruction by aerial torpedoes, will surely act as a deterrent against fighting in years to come. A NEW MENACE. The aerial torpedo is by no means an insignificant "item. Recently the steamship Gena-a craft of just on three thousand tons--was sunk by a small aerial torpedo launched from a German seaplane. It has also been reportedl that aerial torpedoes were used in the Folkestone raids, but this not not been confirmed. Of course, the ...

AN AMERICAN ARMY DIVISION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
AN AMERICAN ARMY DIVISION. Army divisions are not of the same strength in all countries, or in any country at all times. When it was first reported that General Pershing would take a division to France it was said that the botly would consist of not fewer than 25.100 men. It will probably contain 50,000 men before it is completo. Ordinarily a United States Army di vision is made up of three brigades or nine regiments of infantry, one brigade or three regiments of artillery, one regiment of cavalry, one signal bat talion, one aero sqlluadron. one am mlunition train, one supply train, one engineer train. alnd one hospital train. In the first exlpeditionary force of tile Pershin- command there will probably be additional infantry brigade:s and more than one regiment of engineers.

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. Some Tips for the Single Girl. If you hate children and have quite made up your mind never to become a parent. Childless marriages are usually failures.

You are cut out for liv ing alone, and wold never be able to ilake a holney home unless you c;an cure yourself of your faddy ways.

DRINKING THE KING'S HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
DRINKING THE KING'S HEALTH. King George's recent visit to the Grand Fleet recalls to ones mind a custom, reminiscent of bygone days, which still holds good in the Navy. Despite the vast changes in the type of ships, numerous old rules still obtain, and none of them is more sur prising to a landsman than that which forbids the health of the King to be drunk aboard ship upstanding. .Metm hers of the senior service always sit whilst drinking the King's health and it is remarkable how proud they are of the difference between them and their comrades of the land ser vice. The explanation is simple. In the old days of wooden vessels the deck above was perilously near the head! of a man even of average height, ant in many cases, if an officer rose wit: any alacrity, he bumped his healt against the ceiling of the cabin. t. now, in ward-rooms anid gun-roonm the President of the Mess gives the toast of "The King," and it is Iolnor ed without anyone rising.
BIG BILL'S FAMILY TREE. Hangs Inside the Kaiser's Study. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
BIG BILL'S FAMILY TREE. Hangs Inside the Kaiser's Study. Some people are of opinion that the Kaiser's family tree Is now the gallows, but he has another, and it hangs-not grows-in the palace at Potsdam: This genealogical tree has at its root the name of King David, and as its topmost twig the name of William the Second, King of Prussia and German Emperor. Needless to say, it is a very big tree, and con tains a lot of branches and leaves. Considering the Kaiser's contempt for everything English, including the British Army-if not the Navy-it is surprising that he should stoop to tile indignity of tracing this Biblical die scent through his mother, and there fore through the English royal farn Ily, but tile very existence of such a tree not only shows the Kaiser's be lief in his "divine mission" and di vine right, but also his conviction that he is the rightful King of England. seeing that he is the eldest son of Queen Victoria's first-born. According to this precious and pre- I poster...

She flashed him a glance trom her glorious eyes that found his soul even tnrough the darkness that lay chia and thick as wool around them. "If I haun't, you know, I w...

Rather a Shock. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
Rather a Shock. With an idea of testing his pupil' knowledge of their mother-tongue a schoolmaster wrote on the black board the well-known proverb, " wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse." Then he told the class to re-write this saying, using their own word: but retaining the original meaning o: the sentence. Some of the results were good, and others bad: but tile schoolmaster nearly fainted when he read the at tempt of one bright little eight-year old lassie. She had written: "A spasmodic movement of th,! optic is as adequate as a slight In clination the cranium to an equline quadruped devoid of its visionary capacities."

MYSTERIES OF THE EARTH. NEW LIGHTS ON ITS WONDERS. By ROBERT BELL, M.D., F.R.F.P.S. It is presumptuou? on my part to take Upon myself the task of running counter to many oxist:ng theories re garding the deposits present in the earth's crust and also upon its sur face--water for e:ample. In entering ulo.n this portion of my survey, it is imperative that we bear in mind. , that everything contained within and upon the earth'F crust was at one time in a gaseous condition. This being so we are compelled to assume that there existed at that time no compound chemical ýsubstance. Everything must have, then. been in its elementry condition, and contin ued so. as long as the heat was suf ficient to prevent a combination of the elements taking place, and chem ical compounds, such as carbonates, silicates, chlorides, etc., being brought into existence, and more especially Water. To produce the latter there must have existed incalculably enor mous volumes of hydrogen and oxy gen present in the ...

HELP FOR THE ARMLESS. ELECTRO-MAGNETIC LIMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
HELP FOR THE .ARMLESS. ELECTRO-MAGNETIC LIMBS. At a meeting of the German Assoc-. iation of Electrotechnicians it was decided to consider the design and developement of artificial arms, equip- - ped .with electro-magnetic seizing and holding mechanism. The under-lying idea of the selected device is simply this : The sleeve enclosing the stump of the arm is provided at its outer end with a pot-shaped or bell-shaped mag net, which can he ad.usted or held in a hall-end socket, so as to bring the retaining face of the magnet to any position desired. The magnet may then he either clamped tight or else left movable against slightest resist ance. The pot-magnet is connected with a current supply by means of a screw-plug. Connection is made by moving some other part of the body -for example the foot, chin, the re maining arm, the damaged arm It self, or even the whole body. The pot-magnet makes it possible not only to grasp all iron objects, but also to hold them tight or lift them and move...
TIPS FOR BUSY HOUSEWIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 14 December 1917
TIPS FOR ,BUSY HOUSEWIVES. Tea-leaves moistened with vinegar will remove the doscolouration in glass caused by flowers. When sissors get blunt sharpen them by opening and moving back wards and forwards on a piece of glass. Grass stains on clothes should be soaked in parafin. The garment may then be sent to the laundry as usual. When cleaning knives, damp them before rubbing on the hoard. This will produce a better polish, and they will clean much quicker. When making cakes with dripping, if a few drops of lemon juice are beat en up with the dripping the cake will taste as well as if butter had-been used. If an oil-can is not handy to rem edy a creaking hinge, use a soft lead pencil. Moisten the lead point, and rub it into any crevices that can be reached. Put plenty of salt in the haunts of beetles and keep it there for a week. Do not leave any water where the beetles go. When they eat the salt, it will dry up their bodies. When a kettle is "furred" inside, fill it with water, add a...
