A Dainty Collarette. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 26 August 1914
A Dainty Collarette. HIere is a design of a particularly pretty collarette that may be car jried out with almost any small Iremnants of ribbon, lace, amnd silk, and that specially recommends itself for the ease with which it can be made. - In the large sketch the collarette may be seen laid out perfectly fiat, in order to show the way in which it is arranged, and in the small sketch it is shown in position upon a figure. It consists of a hand of elvet ribbon, trimnmed on the outer edge with a bhrorad fIrill of lace, and inside there is a small -est of spotted silk, fasteming with three tiny gold Ibuttons, and, by the way, this little rt should be finished oilff at the neck wiith a small ribbon bow tie. The col-I lours be selected to harmonise with the costume with which the col larette is to Ib worn, and the sketch so learly shows its nature that further description is unnecea sary.

The rocky ground sloped gently up ward, and at last he found himself standing on a rock amid the icy cold. He knew the spot well. From tills point tile rock fell sheerly in tile water to a depth of ten feet or so, forming a large, natural bathing pool. Something soft and clinging grip ped his legs in the water, and with a shiver of affright he bent down. "Oh, Erie," a voice gasped, "wlhy did you comeic? Why did you not let me die?" It was Nellie Charlton. He raiedl her to her feet and felt her in the darkness. ier garmenlts were wet with the sea water, and her long dark hair dripped as hlie touched it. "Nellie, why have youl done this?'" "I want to (lie; I want to die!" she answeredl. "You should not have come here. I wanted-I tried to kill you," and shivering with the intense col...

HOSPITALITY EXTRAORDINARY. Where Strangers Are Made Comfortable. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 26 August 1914
HOSPITALITY EXTRAORDINARY. Where Strangers Are Made Comfortable. In South Africa, amongst the na tives, there !s a custom which has never been mentioned by any travel ler in his tales. In the Transke!, Bas utoland, and Bechuanalandl nearly every fair-sized village has a field set apart for strangers. In a village where the king resides, usually his chief wife is told off to cultivate this field and to store away all the pro duct In the upper part of her hutr, and it in any adjacent village some chief woman is saddled with the work. No man of the tribe Is.per mitted to touch any food thus stored. The king's wife, or whoever culti vates the land, takes her share of the product, and makes her living out of It, but all over and above the amount actually consumed mIust be set aside and preserved. She may not trade with any other Tvwife of. the king. This field is known as the "Stran- ger's Field." WVhenever a stranger comes to the village, he makes known his wants to the king, and he Is ...

THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
THE CRICKET-BAT'S TASK. Twelve months at least should be allowed for the "seasoning" of a high-grade cricket-bat-that is, from the time it is roughly shaped. In the final stage of its manufac ture the surface of the blade is subjected to great pressure by means of special machinery. Why is all this necessary? Because a bat has to withstand tremen dous blows. An interesting experiment once car ried out at Woolwich Arsenal showed that C. T. B. Turner, the great Australian bowler, could bowl a ball at the pace of eighty-one feet a second, and there have been plenty of bowlers faster than "The Demon." However, a tolerably simple ma thematical calculation shows that a cricket-ball travelling at this rate and striking a stationary hat will exert a pressure equal to about 871b. at the point of impact. But, of course, a bat is not al ways stationary, and when it is swung against the ball, the pres sure on the bat is enormously in creased. Here accurate calculations is dim cult, but it . hsa...
OIL FOR LIFEBOATS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
Oil FOR LIFEBOATS. Ten lifeboat crews are experi menting with a small oil bag .to ascertain the effect upon rough, shallow water. The minutely perfo rated bag, containing a tin of thick oil-which is smaszhed by the coxzswain--and a wad of nakum, is towed from the weather side of the boat. and is designed to moderate breaking, following seas. Those latter are always a menace to the safety of a lifeboat, and hitherto the view has been generally held that oil, although an effective agent in deep water, was of no avail against them. The quantity of oil varies from a gallon to half a gallon, according to the size of the boat. Recently the device was tested at Worthing in exceedingly rough wea ther, and it has been reported to the National Lifeboat Institution, which issued the bags, I hat the tests are regarded as satisfactory.
WIVES WON BY PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
WIVE.s WON BI PICTURES. 'l'h, circ mstancnrs leafing up to the wedding bhetCen a wealthy American and a prcttvy girl whosO face he first saw ;andi admired on a canv as in the Acadelmay, have been rfrequeetly paralleled in the past. 'Perhaps the most ormantic case in point war that which wa\s associa ted the name of the late Mr. Wil linam Hnry Hunt. Onec dcay this talented artist disreovered a rustic village i?muty, and proceeded to uti lise her face as a mnodel for one of his glorilously brllli.ant wter colorur picture-portraits. After it was finished he sold it, and at the purchasers ea rnest request, divulgel the identity oi the model. The girl wasM souht out by the buyer, who found her as intelligent as she was beautiful. lIe had her educated, and in due course led her to the altar, the marriage turning out a most happy one. Mr. G. A. Story's vell-known~ pictare "Mistress Dorothy" was also responsible for a similar ro mance.

FOOTBALL. PAKENHAM WINS THE PREMIERSHIP. On Saturday last Pakenham met Dandenong on the Recrea tion Reserve to play off the grand final for the premiership of the Berwick and District Foot ball Association. Pakenham had won the pre miership on the previous Satur 'day, but iDandenong, as the winners of the minor premier ship, had the right of challenge, which they exercised.

SEASICKNESS. HOW IT MAY BE PREVENTED. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
SEASICGI6ESS. -4--t- HIOW IT MAY BE PR?VrEt EID. There are nearly as many remn dies for mal dt mor as there :are for a cold in the hea.d: and any one will know what that means. Ilut asq Lbe old saying has it." '" o)ne man's meat is another man's poi son." And so, because a remedy is t.ficaa.ious with one, it does ',t, f1llow that it will prove siccens ful with another. "'he moral of which is. if one prescription does not care, try njother. In the firAt place, re-sember that the head and the stom?:h are so trurth in ~empathy with ea-h other that whatever affects one will surely influence the other; so that the worst possible thing you can do is to make up your mind belforehand that you are certain to be ill. That is the very way to produce the head ache and nausea which is the pre cursor of seasickness. As far as prevention goes, the sensible glan is to diet oneself for two or three days before embarking, keeping to plain, wholesome food. and neither eating or drinking any thing like...

Is the Sun Losing Mass ? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
Is the Sun Losing Mass'? -t--- The work of Einstdn on the Principle of Relativity shows that a body which radiates energy loses a portion of its mass depending on the energy radiated. It follows that the sun, which continuamlly ra diates energy, is constantly loeing mass. M. J. Boler has calculat ed that the sun loses a mass equal to that of our earth in thirty mil lion years. If it be assumed that the mass thus lost is gravitational mass, it follows that the length of the year increases ,by six seconds in a million years, and that in the same time the mean longitude of the earth is affected in such a way asn to produce a variation of one tenth of a year, i.e., a retardation of thirty-six days in the seasons. Such variations are too minute to be ob servable. In stellar systems pos sessing a higher temperature the ef fect would be much more marked, for the energy radiated by a body varies as the fourth power f, its ahsolute temperature. If, as 5f. Nordmann believes, there exists star...

The Eccentric Clubs of New York. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 2 September 1914
The EcceMtrlc Clubs of New York. -4--~-- IThe clubs of New York are in ma~y cases novel and eccentric in character. There is, for instance. the Tenderloin. Tenderloin is the n~ickpma!e of a district of rather un savoury reputation between Four teenth and Forty-second Streets. Part of it is thickly inhabitnl by coloured people; another part con tains mont of the theatres and in the heart of it, established in a tumble-down wooden shanty, which was once known a?s " el Pot," is the Tenderloin Club. It was formerl" a hanut of thieves; it now nombers among its members some of the most diatinguiahed authors, artists, musicians. doctors. and lawyers in the city; buht it still retains many of the internal characteristics of a thieves' kitchen. The floors are sanded or saw dusted ; the furniture is rude in the extreme; and there is an ostenta tious absence of conmfort ; and short pipes and stone mugs of beer are the order of the evening. Above the entranei is the nmotto. " Who enters here le...
