No Title [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

A deputation from the Flinders presbytery attended a congrega tional meeting at the Presbyterian church this afternoon. Some time ago the committee of manage ment of the church decided to approach the presbytery with-a view to the constitution of a chzrge in Berwick, feeling that such a step would give the church a higher standing. Since that time the matter has been considered by the presbytery, but no definite decision arrived at, the members wishing to get further information. It was with this object that the deputation visited Berwick this afternoon. The Rev. Buntine (Dandenong), Moderator, explained the position to the congregation and referred t) the changes that would be brought about if the presbytery created the new charge The change was desirable, and the proposal had the sympathy of the presbytery, bat they wished to get all the information pos sib'e A number of questions were asked by the Rev.

THE SUPPLY OF BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

THE SUPPLY OF BABIES. it has been computed that about 36,000,000 babies are born into the world each year. The rate of produc tion is therefore about seventy per minute, or more than one for every beat of the clock. With the one-a-second calculation every reader is familiar, but It is not everyone who stops to calculate what Ihis means when it comes to a year's supply. It wiil therefore, probably st~lrt.e a goen many persons to flnd, on the aurh< rity of a well-known sta tistician, that, could the Infants of a year he ranged in a line in cradles, the cradles would extend around the globe. The same writer looks at the mat Ler In a more picturesque light. He imagines the babies being carried past a given point In their mothers' arms, one by one. and the procession being kept up night and day until the last hour in the twelfth month hadl passed by. A suficiently liberal rate is allowed, bhult even In going past at the rate of twenty a minute, 1200 an hour, during the entire ...

HEALTH IN WALKING. "No exercise," says a Dphsician. "equals walking as a health-giver and a life-saver. I don't suppose that out of ten thousand persons a hundred can walk twenty miles a day.

Your feet should be shod with care. Weargood walking. shoes. Be sure and have room in the ohoes for each toe to perrorm its funo tions, and see that the shoes do not slip at the heel. Wear thick woollen stockings, and see that they do not crease or bind. For a person unac customed to exercise, let the frst walk be three or four miles, leisurely taken.

ABOUT THE SUGAR-CANE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

ABOUT THE SUGAR-CANE. The early history of the sugar-canen is shrouded in obscurity. It appears to have been wellt known to the any cfeuts. Herodotus; knew o! it, and. "rheophb~itls alluted. to'bit as- the "rFar-reed: of Egypt. Ialthough it Is quirte possible that this might have e;en one of the sorghum family. In theseventh century, Paulus Aegenitus speaks of sugar as "Indian salt," and from the evident Sanskrit origin of the word sugar, there is little doubt that the Far E~ast must have been its p!ace of origin. The Crusaders came :icross it In Syria, and one of them, de Vitrlaco, described the process of mannufacture by squeezing and boiling down the Juice. The sugar-cane was brought into Spain by the Moors, and to the Spaniards is due the Introduc tion of its manufacture into HIspan iolaor Cuba, where In 1578 there were as many as twent)-eight sugar-works in operation. Thence it was Intro duced into the other, West Indian fstands.

GUIDE TO WEDDED BLISS. Mrs. Mary St. Dyer, of New York, who has just entered upon her tenth matrimonial venture, says men are good. She adds: "Happiness in marriage is a ques tion of understanding concessions-a give and take. If you haven't any children of your own, adopt some. I am sorry I didn't adopt more than two. "Let a husband have his own way, or think he is having It. If you have to use blind bridles, a curb bit and spurs, you can make him used to them so they come natural.

PIANO POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

PIANO POWER. The amount of power expended on playing a piano has recently been figured out in a way which, if not altogether accurate, is at ieast inter esting- Commenting on the state ment that it already requires more force to sound a note gently on this instrument than It does to lift the lid of a kettle, it is easy to verify it if one takes a small handful of coins and piles them on a key of the piano. When a sullicient quantity is piled on to make a note sound they may be weighed, and the figures will be found to be true. If the pianist is playing fortisslmo, a much greater force is needed. At times the force of sIx pounds Is thrown upon a sing'! key to produce a serlitary effect. With chords, the force Is gensrally spread over the various "totes sound ed simultaneously, though a greater output of force is undoubtedly ex pended. This is what gives pianists the wonderful strength in thefir fingers that Is often commented Jo A story used to be told of Pader ewski that he could cr...

KING EDWARD'S CLOSEST FRIEND "'My son has asked for you, and you know I can refuse him nothing.'

This was In 1876, and to no man did the King give more of his contidence. In his reminiscences Lord Sufeld recorded that for nearly forty years they were constantly together, and "in all that t!me' he never said one cross word to me, nor an unkind one, although I often spoks very plainly it anything happened of which I d:d not approve."

I understand, it was arranged to have a dance at an early date. Had I been at the meeting I should have been against such a proposal. It seems to me not only wrong, but unseemly. that preoaritions should be made for and adance held at this time of gloom, when all Euop? is in the throes of a war that is an out rageon humanity.
