His Position. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
Hi3 Position. One of those international gather ings which consist mainly of dignity and broken English was in progress, and a certain polite and much-honored Frenchman had been presented to the mayor of the town in which the gathering was being held. "A?t, sure. permit me ze honor of giving you my felicitations. and to your talented family likewise. Ze music it ees a beautiful gift. and I hope to hat ze honor of hearing your pairformance." "Pardon, m'sleu." said the mystified magnate. "but you are mistaken. I know nothing of music." "Ah, but that is vot you call your hang back-your modiste.

The Judge's Turn. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
The Judge's Turn. - At it the two counsel hammered tooth and nail. It was only a small point of law, but they had been "sub mitting" to "m'lud" for twenty min utes, growing more and more heated with the flight of time. At last: "You are an ass, sir!" shrieked one. "And you're a liar, sir," roared back the other. Then the Judge spoke up. "Now," he said, "that the counsel have identified each other, kindly get on with the arguments." Legal acumen, as it is called, seems' tIo run in some families, and the well Known Mr. Briefer. ICC., received an instance of hereditary genius recently from his seven year old son. "Dad," said the little fellow, "I want to ask you a question about law." "Counsel's opinion is at your ser vice, my son," smiled the genial Briefer. "Well, dad, supposing a- man had a peacock, and the peacock went into another man's garden and laid an egg, who would the egg belong to?" Briefer was relieved; this was an easier one than usuaL "The egg, my son, would belong to th...

THE WAY OF A MAN WITH A MAID A Fable by Lyon Mearson [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
THE WAY OF A MAN WITH A MAID A Fable by Lyon Mearson Once upon a time there was a man who drifted into an engagement with a woman. "Drifted" is the right word. He did not care enough for her to want to face her at breakfast every morning until death did him release. Hie had found her good company. ond he liked her, and all that sort of nonsense, and one morning he woke up to find that everybody, including the girl's relatives and the girl her self expected them to marry. More marriages occur In this acct lental-for the man-manner than you might imaging. Being possessed by the foolish delusion that it was the mly course open to a gentleman, he propo-ed and was accepted. Later, however, the situation be -mine almost intolerable to him. lie pondered on ways and means to have the game stopped. but there did not seem to be anything stirring. He did not have the courage to confess frankly to her that he was not playing for keeps. So he tried to have a quarrel, and succeeded. Did she break...
Pakenham Picnic Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
Pakenham Picnic Sports. The annual picnic sports gathering, in aid of the local Roman Catholic Church, took place at Pakenham on Tuesday last-New Year's Day-and was as usual a great success. This fixture is looked forward to with inter est and it always attracts a large attendance from all parts of the dis trict. Owing to the war and the re striction placed on racing, a departure had to be made from the usual pro gramme this year. Permission was given by the authorities to hold the meeting and a programme was arranged, but it was then found that the consent of the V.R.C. could not be obtained, and consequently the programme had to be re-arranged, and other steps taken to meet the altered conditions. But notwithstanding the difficulties that had to be faced the committee were able to provide a most attractive and interesting day's sport, and all who attended spent a most enjoyable time. The gathering took place on the Old Pakenham course, which, was specially prepared for the occasio...
The First Stage. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
The First Stage. Old 1Mrs. Lassencherry was rather a pathetic figure in the village. She was palpably the product of a bygone generation, and, try as she might, could never bring herself to realise the delights of motoring, or the mag nificent possibilities of aeronautics. But she made strenuous efforts to "keep up," and did fairly well, with the aid of an ample imagination. One night she paid a visit to her niece, at whose house a social gather Ing of friends was being held. "Good evening, auntie, dear!" said the niece. "I am so glad you've come. We're going to have tableaux to InightL" "Oh, yes; I know," said the old lady. "I smelt 'em cooking immediate ly when I came in at the -s-or!"
COUNTRY ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
COUNTRY ROADS. Owing to the war and the consequent financial stringency, the work of the Country Roads Board as planned under the 1912 Act has been considerably impeded. The financial aspect of the board's operations and the need of co operation from the municipalities are discussed in a statement made on Tues day by the Minister of Public Works. Mr M'Whae said that two of the main sources of the board's revenue were the fees collected under the Motor Car Act for registration, licensing and fines, and licence fees for unused roads and water frontages. Up to the pre sent financial year the amounts obtained annually from the motor fund, repre senting about £40,000, and the collec tion of unused roads and water frontage licence fees, about £21,000, had been more than sufficient to meet the board's annual maintenance bill. So rapidly, however, had the maintenance cost grown that the board had found it necessary to ask the Ministry in this financial year for a special grant of £100,000 t...
His Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
His Revenge. "Oh, George, George, George, out to the club again! Indeed, you have no stability! You are a very reed In the wind!"' So the woman; but the man simply shrugged his shoulders and left the room. But to-night, resolved the woman, she would wait up for him. And if he got home after twelve-my word! Hour after hour passed. Ten, eleven, twelve, one. two. By the fire she sat and read; but the book was stupid, the fire got low. At length she gave up her watcn land drowsily mounted to her bed room, where---Horrors! he was in bed, and sound asleep! He had evidently changed his mind Iabout the club, and gone to bed in stead!

Water Supply for Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
. ater Supply for Cows. Mr E. W. Murphy. dairy supervisor, writes as follows in last month's "Journal of Ariculture ": The necessity of a liberal supply of good clean drinking water for milch cows needs great emphasis, for too often we find that the only water avail able is that from a dam or waterhole into which the cattle have access so that they puddle it up and pollute it. In many parts of the State the supply of water for stock is dependent upon surface catchment into dams or water holes or upon subterranean sources. Water that has become polluted in such reservoirs as these can be cheaply purified by using chloride of iron, or *ne, to precipitate the .clay and or a~nic matter. It will cost very little, and if a quantity of either agent in ex tess of that actually required to clarify the water be used, the stock will benefit, as both chloride of iron and lime are . essential in the animal economy. The dam. or waterhole should be fenced off and the water lifted. into tanks, or g...

Peninsula Water Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
Feninsula Water Scheme. The works for the supply of wat, r to the raval base and Mornington pen insula have been cur.niderably advanced by the Water Commissicn during the past few months. The construction of the Beaconsfield Reservoir, which is to act as a regulating rtorage. is progres sirg favorably. The site of this res ervoir is in the Haunted Gully, at about 3 miles north of Beacu,n-field. In this over 200,000,000 gallons can be stored at very small cost, and the supply is drawn from the Teomue creek. The storage will enable a very early supply to be sent on to the naval kase, and, although it will eventually be connected with the main supply on the Bunyip River, it will in the mean time afford a complete service. Tihe main races and pipe lines provided in the scheme are well in hand, and a site has been selected and work com menced on the Frankston Reservoir, which commands the various seaside towns on the peninsula. It is hoped to supply the naval base with water during the p...

And at Present Prices, Too. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
And at Present Prices, Too. "Well, there's no pleasing some of you!" sighed the stage manager, "and it doesn't seem much use trying. All the other members of the company are delighted at the idea of having real roast beet and plum-pudding in the banquet scene. What's your objec tion, Stormlngton?" "MJy objection!" said the heavy lead with a curling lip. "Ye gods,.he asks me why I object! 'Tis because"--he hissed out the words in a frenzy of vindictive rage-"I have to rise from the table after the first mouthful and say, as- I stalk off, 'Tis strange, I can not eat to-night. A vague dread o'er powers me, I will seek the silence of yon corridor for the nonce.'

MATRIMONIAL MAXIMS. Rapid Fire by the Cynic. Marrisge. which makes two one, is a life!ong struggle to decide who is that one. Wives should never pester their husbanids. A husband is like an egg if kept continually in hot water he soon gets hardened The only man who ever found his wife as tender as he thought he had a right to was a cannibal-and that was after her death. .Marriage 13 the corset for some wo me''s excessivo emotionalism-and also one of man's mainstays. The doll type of society woman may he at a discount in the mar-iage mar bet to-day, but her lover is always at "pa." Love Is a good bit like soda water. They both fizzle out. Lovers are often described as dove like; but after marriage all the coo inu zlves way to billing. Married women are like an army: they are hopelessly lost if they have no reserve. But, strangely enough. when they are long past their primp they find their reserve with the "col ors." A novelist says: "Love is but change of air." Hence the breezes and ...

A Long Procession. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
A Long Procession. A couple of country yokels on their first visit to London were standing near the Bank waiting for an oppor tunity to cross over to the Mansion .louse. They waited for some time. watching the vehicular and foot traffic streaming by. but to their amazement it did not seem to decrease in quan tity. So one of them went to a police man, who was standing near, and asked: "Can yo' tell us hoo lang this pro :ession '11 be o' gauning by, please?" The officer grinned, and replied: "It'll be on till near midnight, I ex pect.' "Man alive!" said one yokel to the )ther, awestruck. "but thir. mnn be :he largest procession on record!" Without Care. A case of new-laid eggs upon his :tended back, the toiler made his way 'long the pavement. Guess what happened? It did! Ruefully the man regarded the scat tered debris of shells and running -olks. Then he proceeded gingerly 'o collect the few eggs that had re !nained unbroken. A passing pedestrian volunteered a sheering word. "My good ...
Cabby the Sufferer. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 4 January 1918
Cabby the Sufferer. A cab recently halted at a street corner and a gentleman alighted. The latter had evidently not the means at hand to pay his fare. by the manner in which he dived first into one poc ket and then the other. Ile was re lieved. however, from his embarrass ment by a man stepping forward and tendering a Treasury note to the driver, with the remark: "Take your tare out of that. I know this gentle man." The change was given, and the cabby was soon out of sight. "To whom am I Indebted for this kindness?" asked the first gentleman. "Not me, sir. On the contrary, that's a bad note I've been wanting to change all day."
