THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
THE LANGUAGE OUF LOVE. The manager of the big department store stood stock-still outside the lit tie box-like chamber which held the telephone of. the establishment, for he was a very startled manager, in deed. Within the chamber he could hear Miss Jones, the stenographer, sypeaking, and this is a scrap of the conversation the startled man over beard: "I rove you dear, and only you. I'm weeping my heart away. Yes, my darliig, speak to me once more. I love you, dear, I love you so." The young woman rang off and step ped out of the cabinet .to confront an angry manager. "Miss Jones," he said, "that tele phone has been fixed where it is for the purpose of convenience in conduct ing business, and not for love-making in office hours. I am esrprised at you. Do not let it occur again." The young lady frcze him with a glance. "I was ordering some new s~onzs from number three department," she explained, icily. Schoolmaster : "What is your father ?" New Boy: "Dead." Schoolmaster: "No, no W Wh...

The cinematograph operator whom she engaged was not kept waiting long for an opportunity of filming the er rant husband, and in the presence of relations the subject was privileged to beholdl himself on the screen.

RUSSIA'S WONDERFUL HORSEMEN. The Cossacks, who recently waged a vigorous offensive in Rusrifa, are one of the most interesting commun ities in that country of vast areas.

HIoldling their land in tenure from the Government, they are in return eypected to render military service whenever required.

"IN PRIZE." SOME ENORMOUS SUMS SHARED BY THE NAVY IN BY-GONE DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
" IN PRIZE." SOME ENORMOUS SUMS SHARED BY THE NAVY IN BY-GONE DAYS. Prize money, the oldest of .Navy perquisities, has dwindled woefully. How, uninspiring seems the several hundred now awarded to H.M. ships for destroying .the enemy in compari sco with the great, big, glittering hauls which our sailors in the by gohe days of cutless and boarding pike used to wrest from the enemy ! I Vastly different was it some hundred odd years ago' when a successful cruise made men rich and a fortune could be won in d day ! Not a mere phrase this but a thing that often did happen. A notable case of the kind was that of the Triton, frigate, which captur ed the Spanish Santa Brigida, on the 17th October 1799, and thereupon won for her crew a million and a half dollars. As a result of that-one brief ight the Triton's captain pocketed £40,730, whilst her seamen received £182 each. A mere trifle contrasted with the captain's share, but a good day's earnings, nevertheless. FAVOURED OFFICERS. The explana...

THE VANISHING TRICK. BEING A CHARMIING NATURE STUDY ABOUT TH-IE ADVEN TURES OF A DRAGON-FLY. At first glance he looked almost ex actly like an exquisitely fashioned modlel aeroplane, only: that the two pairs of planes were placed side by side and far apart, instead of one above the other. At second glance we saw that he was alive. No one was ever so agile as to measure him Lut .he looked about four inches long and four inches wide. He didn't drone be only made gadding noises with his wings, or something. His long narrow back was pale-blue-white or green-white, the rest of him brown of dilTerent tints. His eyes were like big whole-hearted rubies, and his four wings--the planes of the aeroplane were like the rainbow that hangs "above a waterfall, no less.

DISEASES YOU MAY AVERT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
DISEASES YOU MAY AVERT. -4----- It is pointed out in a recent paper by Dr. A. Davison, that three-fourths of the deaths in the world "result from thr minute parasitic plants and animals gaiining access to the body. These tiny organisms are popularly known as 'germs,' and wage a con tir.ual warfare against both strong and weak, rich and poor. It is the duty of the State and the Citizen, as far as possible, to shut out of the human system these destroyers of life. "The death rate in any locality in usually a true nlodex of the habits and education of the people, in reference to the protection of health. "In.benighted Spain 27 out of each 1.000 inhabitants perish each year, while in enlightened Norway death claims n~pnually only fourteell per thousand. In one American city the death rate is .31 for the coloured race against 21 for the white, which cor responds to the ldifference in ignor ance, and nigligence regarding the laws of sanitation.

Thewlis and J. J. Hayes (hon. secretary). The balance sheet for the year was submitted by the secretary and was approved and adopted.
