Oakleigh District Football Association.. The local football team journeyed to Richmond on Saturday last and again suffered defeat. Their form, however, was much improved to that of the previous match. After a very fast and strenuous game, Richmond ran out winners by 7 points. The game re mained very even until about 10 minutes before the final bell, when a strong wind began blowing, in favor of Richmond. Pakenham's most promi nent players were Anderson, Stone Slessar, Lowen, Cook and B. Stone. Tomorrow Pakenham will be playing on their own ground, when they hope to secure a win. The Carnegie team has withdrawn from the association, but their vacancy will be filled.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 May 1917
Constable Maher, of Pakenham, has received notice from his superintendent to the effect that a good entry has been placed on his record for efficient duty performed in connection with the recovery of some cattle missed from Neerim South. He traced the cattle to Wallan Wallan, where they were recovered. This forms but one of a long list of good entries to Constable Maher's credit-he has at least a dozen others--and it speaks well for his trustworthiness and efficiency as a constable. Amongst the list of local contribu tors to the British Red Cross appeal now being made throughout Victoria we notice the names of the following: -Mr Arthur Greenwood £5 5s, Mrs Arthur Greenwood £4 4s, Mr Jno. Henry £3 3s, Mr.Reg Henty £1 is, Mr C. Mountjoy £1 is, Mrs Jno. Henry 10s, collected at Pakenham show 10s, Miss Hagens 10s, Miss Greenwood 10s, Mrs Close 5s, Mrs Jas.

Filled the Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 May 1917
Filled the Bill. A bachelor advertised for a com panion who must be a total abstainer, an early riser, and a good vocalist. Two or three days later he received a hamper with a cat, having a label attached to its neck, on which was written, "You will find her a very pleasant companion, a total abstainer, an early riser, and a good vocalist-" The German Union for the Develop nent of the German language Is de nanding that "in future peace ne ,otiations the German language shall be used." But not, we hope, the same fanguLge they used when they read he peace terms of the Allies! "The Storyteller" for the current month is a fine number. "The Liode's Eyes," by Herbert Ward, Is of thrilling interest, and Oliver Cur wood's second Instalment of "The Son of Kazan" Is worthy of the author. There is also a contribution by that well-known and always-popular writer Andrew Soutar, and there is a long complete novel in the number, entitled "The Gift of God," by one of our best authors, Alice Perrin....
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 May 1917
Cakes will be considerably light ened if the whites of eggs are beaten up separately from the yolks. If a small piece of soda is dissolved in a little vinegar, and it is then mix ed with the blacklead, it will give a particularly bright appearance to the stove or grate, especially if you pol ish it with a pad of old velvet To render dustbins perfectly sani tary, burn a couple of newspapers in them each time they are emptied. Let the flame rush out, and it will remove every trace of grease or damp from the Iron and render the dustbin as healthy as a new one. When making fruit puddings, the basin used should be greased. Then sprinkle well with brown sugar, and press the paste against the mould. The sugar, after cooking, forms a rich liquid glaze over the outside of the pudding, making it look most tempting. Silver-plate that is to be packed away for any length of time should be thoroughly cleaned, then lightly smeared with fresh lard and put into baize bags. When required for use agai...

Abdication. lie: "Queen of my heart-" She: "Queen nothing! Queens can't pick their husbands. I can-and be leve me, I'm some picker." Most people tninic tney are virtu ous merely because they are tame and inoffensive. Tameness Is not a virtue, it is merely the indication of a force too feeble to run into excess. Virtue appears only when a strong force is wisely exerted under a strong regulation.
ADAM AND EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 May 1917
ADAM AND EVE. What is probably the most remark able and strangest of all alleged Bible tombs is that which marks the sup posed resting-place of Eve, the mother of the human race. It lies about a mile to the north of Jeddab. the port of Mecca. The tradition that Eve was buried here is older than Mohammed. Adam is believed by some to rest at his own peak In Ceylon, but this is de bated by Oriental scholars. There had been a difference, so the Mohamme dans say, between our first parents. and Eve spent the last years of her life at Jeddah, where she was buried, not far from the great temple in Mecca which Moslem tradition ascribes to the hands of Adam him self. A common legend attributes to Eve the height of 118fL, but this does not correspond with the dimensions of her tomb, which is nearly 400ft. long! She must have been of a somewhat strange shape, as her grave Is only lOft. or lift. wide! In the middle of the grave is a small building contain ing a curious witness to the devotion of...

A Thoughtful Parent. Petted Daughter: Papa, what has come over you lately? I never had a wish you were not anxious to grati fy, and you even anticipated my wants, and handed me money for all sorts of things I hadn't even thought of. But now I have to ask you for every need; even this morning you said you could not spare me a penny for "The Weekly Telegraph," and you growl and grumble, and ask if I think you are made of money, and you rail at women's extravagance, and in variably ask me what on earth I did with the last money you gave me. Don't you love me any more? Papa: My darling, I love you as much as ever; but you are soon to be married, and I am trying to gradu ally prepare you for the change."

EXPERIENCE IN HORTICULTURE. The Pleasures of it. While discussing the pursuit of hor ticulture in its various phases, the best methods of cultivation, best var ieties, the risks and the profits, due -weight should be given to its plea sures. In selecting a vocation for life, one of the first questions to de termine is-will it afford a subsist ence? However desirable a business calling may be In all other respects, if it cannot support those engaged -In it, it must be rejected. The susten ance of the body takes precedence of everything else. We must first satis fy the demands of the physical system before we attempt to gratify the in tellectual or the aesthetic man.
