She looked like a gigantic and tired moth, taking a rest, as she lay by the side cf the hanger, her wings folded back, and the propeller of her fore end appearing like antennae fci an insect. She seemed tired-very tied; she had Just returned from a secuting trip over the nearer seas. and wanted a rest badly. But there Is no rest for men or machines in the time of war, and scarcely had her observer and pilot eaten their breakfast before the wire less installation attached to the sta tion commenced to crackle insistent ly, calling the tired moth to further life. INTO THE WATER. Come half a dozen overall-clad mechanics with oil cans and spanners and ewiftly, and deftly, but exceedlng ly careful, felt her all over, and fed her bearings with lubricant. Like an awakened moth she slowly tunfolded her winges, and commenced to purr as her engines were tested...

Armies May Become Invisible [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 11 January 1918
--, ..--- -. Armies May Become Invisible If a regiment of soldiers were to march through the streets of one of our cities in a uniform of chess-board pattern, arranged in squares of bright rcl, green, and yellow, it would create, to say the least, a popular sensation. Yet it is by no means certain that this style of costume, or something like it, may not be adopted by our fghting men in the next war-not, be it understood, that they may strike the eye; but, on the contrary, that they may not be seen at all. One of the oddest of the new departures of the present war is the utilisation of optical illusions for cheating the ever w-atehful eyes of the enerely, and in this line the most curious expedient is that of painting tnings out of sight. Thcs, for example, an effort is made to render the big guns invisible by scattering daubs of the primary colors over thd weapons and their carriages. Experiments have recently been made by the United States War Deparf. ment with the great guns of t...
DO'S AND DON'TS OF DRESS. Mistakes Many Women Make. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 11 January 1918
DO'S AND DON'TS OF DRESS. Mistakes Many Women Make. Some women are born with a sLrth sense that tells them what to wear and how to wear it; others have to cultivate the clothes sense. If you're one of the latter, listen here. Suppouse Nature Ihas been generous over the matter of your proportions -well, there are certain things that the stout woman should avoid. Square necks andl lined materials are among them. But the latter are quite safe so long as the lines run downwards and not round the body. Arranged ou the perpendicular plan they are very uteful in giving the appearance of height to the short, stout woman. just as they can be used to give width to the thin one by a horizontal ar rangement. In short, if you're thin, let the stripes go round; if you're stout, let them run downwards. Now for necks. The V shaped one tends to take from a woman's size, so ,t should be patronised by the over plump. Round and square necks suit the thin woman. The over-thin girl should go In for full ...

Reduced Charities Vote. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 11 January 1918
Reduced Charii!es Vote. As a step towards the policy of State economy the Treasurer proposes to reduce the charitable grant to all hiospitals. Mr M'Pherson, who has been looking closely,. into the whole question, stated on Monday that he had decided that the charity vote for this year should not exceed £115,000, as compared with £134,000 for last year. He had been surprised at the substantial increase in the grants of recent years, and after reviewing the position of the charities he had formed the opinion that the grant for this year should be reduced to £100,000. But on the representations of Mr H. C. Malcolm, Inspector of Charities, he had agreed to fix the amount at £115,000. The allocations would be announced within the next few days, and would be determined practically on a percenage reduction basis. The questionof the compassionate allowance and other dctail: of the charity vote h:ad not yet been decided. The abuse of the hospitals by patients able to pay for medical attendan...

On Saturday he again made runs and took wickets. Warne is essentially a club man.

Sweetly Expressed. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 11 January 1918
Sweetly Expressed. Not for worlds would Mrs. Smith speak an unkind word about any one. She was one of those chari table old ladies who try to think and speak kindly of everyone. If anyone asked her opinion of a person, and she did not particularly like the in dividual in question, she would ex press her feelings in such a quaint and original way that the sting would be quite lost "What a brilliant conversational Ist young Mr. Jenkins Is!" said a friend to her one day. "Do you know him? Really, it's an education to listen to him talking." "Yes," said gentle Mrs. Smith; "I' have met himn" "You must have found him very entertaining. Why, he can talk eleverly and wittily for an hour at a stretch." "Then when I met him," said Mrs. Stith, with a sweet smile, "it must have been at the beginning of the second hour." D~eep b~reathing is one of the best eures for insomnia, as it draws the blood from the brain to the lungs.
