The Other Uncle. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

The Other Uncle. A traveller, .who by his twang evi dently came from America, entered a railway carriage at Hereford the other day, and endeavored to begin conver sation in the following way: "I guess the air of this country is dead agen a long innings." The remark was received in silence by the other passengers present, but the Yankee continued:- "Now, the air of our country is something like a climate-kinder makes you live, want to or not. 'Why, my Uncle Jabez is ninety-four next fall, but you wouldn't think so to see him jump on and off his bicycle going down South to see his old folk. And my Aunt 3Mima, seventy-six, and Jun ior golf champion of Fressia. By the time she gets a few more years over her head she will be able to beat some of the older ones, I can tell you. I assure you of this, that none of my relatives-they have all been brought up In Montana-have banded in their checks before they've passed the cen tury." A quiet-looking man who sat in a corner said, "I remember re...

THE LONGEST POEM. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

nc fLOLUNcSr POEM. Which is the longest poem in the world? One generally regards "Para dise Lost" as pretty lengthy, and Thomson's "Seasons" and Cowper's "Task." But these are short com pared withl Spenser's "Faerie Queene," whlich Is easily the longest poem in existence, even as it stands, and had le attained his object andi reached the twenty-fourth hook, no other poet would have been "in it." It is only a quarter of the original Ilan, yet it is as long as the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid put to gether, twice as long as Dante's "Di vina Commedia." and three times as long as "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Regained" in one. The longest novel in the world be longs to Japan. Its author is Kiong Te Bakin. It was commenced in 1852, and pnblislhed volume by volume as it came out over a period of fifty years. There are 10G volumes, 106,000 pages, :(.180,000 lines, and about 38,000,000 words. A complete copy weighs 1301b.

TYPISTS' LITTLE SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

TYPISTS' LITTLE SLIPS. if some lady typists can make a mistake they will, and some of their efforts are very amusing. One typist produced the remark, in regard to a rather conceited man, that "his one weakness was onion sauce," the real word being "omniscience." Another, in an obituary of a great theologian, spoke of his belief in the "immorality of the soul." Just the omission of the "t" from "immortality" made all the difference. Some few years ago a speaker at a meeting waxed very sym pathetic over the death of the wife of a manager of tile company at some fever-stricken place in West Africa, and the reporters who were after wards getting out this speech together to save time were in a jocular mood. I At the end of the pathetic oration the one who was dictating said. for a joke, and to amuse the others, "Loud laugh ter," and the foolish girl, who was as much a machine as the typewriter at which she sat. actually put the words in. M.oreover. they appeared in print in a financial n...

PHANTOM GOLD, By EMMA M. MORTIMER, Author of "Second Lady Evesham," "Cords of Sin." "Robert Wynstan's Ward," Etc., Etc. (Published by Special Arrangement) (Copyright.) CHAPTER XXXIV. Developments Discussed. "Sir Horace would like to see you in his bedroom, Mr. Trevelyan. He is not so well this morning, and does not feel equal to getting up." Philip Trevelyan frowned and mut tered a word whose meaning the foot man could only guess. It was earlier on the same morning on which those other events were transpiring at Netherton Lodge, and Philip had breakfasted alone in the library. He had sent a message to Mrs. Wilding, and Lilian, explaining that he had. some important estate business to at tend to, and should prefer to snatch his breakfast in the interval of total ling accounts, though in reality his unsociability sprang from furious and unavailing anger, anger which he felt he could not entirely restrain in the presence of Lilian Hamilton. Now he pushed away his half-finished cup of c...

Sale of Gifts. On Saturday last a very successful sale of gifts was held at the Pakenhamn State school in aid of the Repatriation Fund. The proceedings opened with the singing of the National Anthem, after which Mr W. Close, J.P., chairman of the school committee, Mr Arthur Greenwood, J: P., and Mr P. C. Row lands, Methcdist missioner, gave short patriotic addresses, complimenting the children on their efforts and referring to the very fine work that had been done by the school 'children of the State in the way of raising patriotic funds, and in preparing various articles for the soldiers. The speeches being concluded, the business of the afternoon was under taken. The children, who had been working industriously for some weeks, had their goods displayed on various stalls, and were well patronised. They had the assistance of some of the " old boys and girls" of the school in their work. During the afternoon the pupils, in appropriate costumes, danced folk dances. and the infants gav...

The Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

The Reason. "Why is it?" queried the fair widow. "that they always say a man 'pines' for a woman?" "I suppose." growled the fussy bachelor, "it's because pine is about the softest wood there Is." He who has thought, feeling, ex pression, imagination, action, charac ter and continuity, all in the largestI amount and degree, is the greatest poet. A great advantage of riches is that they enable one to escape so much good advice. The rich are always advising the poor, but the poor seldom 'enture to return the compliment. Let us beware lest the dethrone-' ment of custom to make place for right should displace along with it the principle of reverence, which bestows a discipl'ne which is invaluable in the formation of character. "This," said the goat, as he turned from the tomato-can and began on the broken mirror with relish, "this is indeed food for reflection." MIoney is the root of all evil-that Is, the other man's money.

CRIME AND WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

CRIME AND WEATHER. A rainy day not only depresses your spirits, but is apt to lead you into mistakes which you would not make in bright weather. It is well known in banks that errors in figures are far more fre quent on dull days than on fine, and school teachers have observed the same thing. A warm, bright day is the best for mental effort, but it is also the worst for crime. There are more convictions for assault with vio lence during the warm weather than during the winter-a fact that is prob ably due to the misapplication of the energy which the fine days bring to all of us. When the weather becomes very hot, on the other hand. the effect is depressing, and there is a marked de crease in crimes of violence, with a falling off also in the output of sound mental work-another illustration of the law of compensation. A wife is called the "better half"' because she usually gets the best of the other half! The German High Fleet is prepar ing for engagements, says a contem porary. all ...

THE NEW CURE. "Church-going is a food tonic, it stimulates the digestive organs; if tried it would prove more efficacious than patent medicines and-sherry be fore lunch or dinner." When you're feeling limp and pale, Go to church! When you're shaky, weak and stale. Go to church! When you're going off your feed, And a tonic strong you need, Then to matins, prithee, speed! Go to church! When you feel you cannot sleep, Go to church! 'Tie a restorative cheap Go to church! Though the noisy canon roar He's a canon with a bore You may slumber-you may snore, Go to church! If a pane of glass has to be remov ed, cover the putty which holds it in place with soft soap, leaving It on for some hours. The putty will then be come soft and can be scraped away and the glass taken out easily. The surest test of civilisation is its treatment of women. Do not withhold encouragement.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 December 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Stains on crockery may be removed by rubbing with fine ashes moistened with vinegar. Milk which has slightly turned may be sweetened and rendered fit for use by stirring in a little soda. To revive patent leather, rub well. with a soft rag soaked in alive-oil and milk, and afterwards polish with a soft, dry du:str. When making jam tarts, mix thei jam with a little hot water before putting it in the pastry. It tastes just as well and the jam goes further. When taking a pie from the oven. do not put it on the fiat surface of a table to cool, but on a high wire rack. The rack helps to keep the crust crisp. If new tinware is rubbed over with fresh lard and thoroughly heated in the oven before it is used it will never rust, no matter how much it is put into water. After washing lamp chimneye, pol ish them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine and pre vents it from cracking.
