His Little Mate. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
His Little Mate. By William Charles Long. Old Skipper Riggs was never in an. great hurry to interfere. It was an axiom with him to think twice before speaking once, and in consequence he had come to be looked upon in the light of a sage. Marvelous it really. was the number of little tangles at tending human life he had helped to unravel, and many were the lads and lasses in Bleakhorn who had just cause to bless his seasoned advice. Leaning against the upturned boat, and slowly rubbing tobacco between ponderous palms, he now furtively watched the face of the irate young man standing in front of him. There was an amused smile on his weather beaten face. He was simply letting the "young un rip," contenting him self with listening, filling and light ing his pipe the while. Suddenly the speaker paused as if the storm had outblown itself, and thrust his hands deep in his trousers pockets. Skipper Riggs promptly gave him a dig in the ribs. "You've simply been talking out of your 'hat, Jerr...
A BOY'S IDEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
A BOY'S IDEAS. As I am a boy arl have st?aed os the farm I will try to give the tather a little advice on the subject I lhaV red where many a father has said1. Give him siomcthlng of his wn," reich in a very good way, but yet a verv small thing compared with othenrs which cost Ihss. Why not let the boy have his say about the business ol the farm? In fact let him be "boss" as long as he bsses right. Hie can ory tile way things should be done but if his father thinos diffrent he can change it.. In chang?ng don't saa 'No, that is not right at all, I thougnt 'ou knew more th:n that. uWe'll do it this way." Tell him where you thlink ho is wrong, and aok him what he thinks of your way. Probably in to doing he can show you something you do not know. The worst was to kill the ambition of a boy is to tell him how good you used to be. Most boys will count it a .ikely story, and think less of you ever ifterward. When the boy is feeding a bunch of hogs and he thinks they are dcring well, :and y...
Trade Was Booming. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
- Trade Was Booming. The lady with the satring bag and the rusty bonnet walked into the grocer's and inquired the price of bacon. "We have some at 2/- a pound, madam," came the reply, "our best is 2/4." "E'r'aDs you wouldn't mind me lookin' at a bit o' the best?" "Not at alL There, that's very fine bacon." The lady jabbed her finger into the tan rind, tested it by scent, and re marked, "Nice fryin' bacon, I dessay. That and a tomarter or two'd see any body through a breakfast." The grocer complimented the lady upon her discernment. "How much would you like cut off. madam?" he asked. "Ask yourself the question. Just ask yourself," came the reply. "Do 1 look like buyin' bacon at 2/4?" "Well, madam--" "I was only seein what it was like to be bargainin' for a bit of streaky once more,' 'interrupted the lady. "Still. you shan't 'ave your trouble for nothink. I'll take a pound o' washln' soda."
Gold or Virtue. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
Gold oi~ Virtue. "As silver is of less value than gold, so gohl is of less value than virtue." This is a wise old saying, virtue, indeed, being invaluable. Any thing without virtue is dear at any price. Especially must virtue be considered when we seek relief whilst suffering from ailments such as lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, bil fousness, jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. Many people who are afflicted by these complaints are unaware that their suffering, prob ably, is due to an Inetficient action or the kidneys and liver. When the kidneys and liver are inactive or dis eased, uric and biliary poisons, which it is the function of those important organs to extract from the blood, re main In the system instead of being expelled from the body through the natural channels. The retention of ti ese poisons is frequently the cause of the disorders mentioned. War ner's Safe Cure is wcnderful rem edy in cases ...

Careless Use of Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
Careless Use of Fires. With the dry weather and high winds serious losses through tire have eccured in several country districts of Victoria. A warning notice against careless use of fire was circulated by the Lands department in November last, and the MIinistcr of Lands is again publishing this warning and appealing to all persons to exercise the utmost care. To ensure precautions against tires, the Lands department has issued circulars to shire councils, progress committees, committees of manage ment of reserves, and other public bodies, urging upon them the necessity for careful supervision, and asking them to bring under the notice of their officers a special memorandum pre paredl by the department on the sub ject.

The Y.M.C.A. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
The Y.M.C.A. A stirring account of the work of the Red Triangle in Egypt and Pales tine is given by William Jessop, gene ral secretary of Y.M.C.A. in Egypt, in a communication which has reached theNational Committee of the Y.M.C.A in Australia. " During this upheaval," he writes, " Egypt has ever been subject to lightning-l;ke changes. Military camps sprang up like mushrooms over night, as it were, and as suddenly dis appeared, : ni so in that place our work ceased. To such an extent has this been true that of the fifty-nine Y.M.C.A. centres opened last year only fifteen remain to-day, but since Sep tember the Red Triangle has been raised in thirty-seven new places. In all, during the three years 120 centres have been opened. At present we have fifty-six secretaries-five Ameri cans, nineteen Australians, twenty seven English and three others.

"Would you like to have a dog, my son?" said the proud parent. "No," said Reginald. Somewhat later Reginald returned to his father's side.

Disease Among Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
Disease Among Stock. At the December meeting of the local shire council, Cr Walsh referred to an outbreak of pleuro in the Yanna than district, and suggested that the ranger for the Iona riding should take special precautions to prevent the spread of the disease into this shire. It has been stated that the disease has been in evidence for some months, and that many farmers have suffered severe losses, but Mr Robertson, Chief Vet erinary Officer of the Department of Agriculture states that the outbreak is confined to one firm, on which the officers of the branch are taking all possible ineasures to prevent the spread of the disease. Mr Robertson says that in May last pleuro-pneumonia was reported at Yannathan, and an officer was sent down to take control. The outbreak was confined to one farm, and the officer found the herd to be badly affected. Inquiries showed that the disease had been on the farm for some months without the owner's knowledge -possibly for six months. A large numbe...
Patriotic Entertainments. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
Patriotic Entertainments. The State War Council has decided to take a more complete control in re gard to entertainments and raffles held for patriotic purposes. Objection is taken by the defence authorities to the practice of promoting patriotic raffles for advertising purposes, or as a " draw" for entertainments which are not solely partiotic in their objects. The Victorian State War Council, which exercises some measure of con trol over all public appeals for money for patriotic purposes, has for a long time refused to allow any admixture of patriotism and business, and has vetoed many efforts to trade upon the patriotic sentiment of the public for commercial gain. It is now intended, however, to draw a much sharper line of de marcation, and a regulation has been issued under the War Precautions Act to increase the .powers of the State war councils, so as to enable them to veto all appeals which do not conform to the new standard. The Minister of Defence said on Monday that he wo...

MAINLY MARRIAGE LINES. Some Random thoughts on Things That Matter. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
MAINLY MARRIAGE LINES. Some Random thoughts on Things That Matter. It there had not been a serpent in the Garden of Eden it is likely that the bored inhabitants of Paradise would have been forced to import one from the outside wilds merely to relax the tedium of a too-sustained duet. There ought to be a law that when a man and a woman have been mar ried for a year they should be fordf bly separated for another year. These are three things a man does not like: He doesn't like to be spied on, he doesn't like to be ruled and regulated, and he doesn't like to be asked for a thing he wants himself. Where there are two men there's one fight. Where there's three there's a drinking match, two fights and a flone to be paid. Primness is the most everlasting. indestructible trait of humanity. It can outface the Sphinx. It is de structible only by death. Whoever has married a prim woman must hand over his breeches and his purse; he will collect postage stamps in his old age; he will twiddle his...
WHEN THE WORM TURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 18 January 1918
WHEN THE WORM TURNS. The hnmnn element in the great rmass of the populace, in sharp con traLst with tihe inhumanity of the dark frc~:es rr;ayed against it-underlies all that happened during the revolu tion iln rlussia. Blureaucracy failed in its last dlesperate stand for pre rogative andi privilege because it un ?errated tile ability of the average lfussian- believed to be dulled by years of oppression-to ultimately de cide between right and wrong. Push ed to the limit by deception and dis loyalty in a grave hour of national lperil, the worm turned and carried all before him. Apply this elemental fa;ce to whatt transpired in Russia and everything stands revealed.
