ARNA'S SACRIFICE. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER V. "Ever the bitter asphodel outlives Love's Rose." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

ARNA'S SACRIFICE. By EILEEN and ELLICE CRANE. Authors of "Picrrette," "John Camberon," "Under Her Husband's Thumb," Etc., Etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Ccpyright.) CHALPTER V. "Ever the bitter asphodel outlives Love's Rose." It is almost a platitude to say that those who accept the bread of charity will find it a stone in the majority of cases. So at least Jill found it to be in very truth. By a system of super fine torture, Mrs. Brandemere made the girl suffer that evening in a way which no one else at the dinner table could even suspect. With every mouthful of food she took, Jill felt the elder woman's eyes fixed upon her in silent mockery, until she thought that she must surely choke. "Headache still bad, dear?" asked Richard Brandemere; "you are eating scarcely anything, you know." He had always lavished affection upon the girl, as though he sought to make up in some measure for that which his wife so evidently lacked with regard to her; and when at length the relation...

What will yout take for the filh ?" "I'm not solling them," replied the man in oiiskins. "Well," continued the peraijtent angler, "what da you want to take me out flebing to.morrow ?" Mr. Cleveland who was plainly en joying the joke, replied "I can't make any engagement, ex cept by the seanon. 'Will you give ime as mueh'ak I made last year ?" "You're a sharp fellow," replied the, angler, "but a good fisberman, and I'll accept the terms. What did you make last year ?" "Oh," replied Mr. Cleveland, "about a thoueand4 dollars a week ! I am Prlde it of the Unitted? 8.et."

LAST WORD IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

LAST WORD IN WAR. They fight like moles now. No more is the advance made with the blare of bands nor even the trum pet call. "To the charge !" No more the gallant officers jump out in front waving their swords and shouting, "Forward !"; no more the hurrah and rush of men, all gallantly hurl ing themselves full into the face of the enemy. Mattock and spade are the weapons used to-day. The advance is made silently-and underground ! The at tackers are invisible. The shock of the charge only comes when an ex plosion from beneath blow up a por tion of the enemy's trenches and hurls. sky-high the poor fellows who happen to be standing over- it. The sap is the thing ! It is the deadliest kind of warfare, this working in the dark and in the silence towards the enemy's line. lapping is the slow process of worming a way towards the enemy's position by means of burrowing below the surface of the earth. The Ger mans, always methodical and given to much detail, have it down to an ex act science....

Financially Speaking . Patient's Wife: "Do you think my husband can stand an operation?" Doctor (absently): "Mly dear mad am, you know his financial affairs bettor than I do." "Why didn't I go to her assistance?" said the man who had stayed in bed while his wife laid out a burglar. "Young man, I've had a number of tussles with the old gal, and I knew that that burglar would have trouble enough without my giving him any." Often the doctor's bill is the hard est dose the patient has to swallow. Faith is believing the dentist when he says he Isn't going to hurt you. Speaking of separation allowances. isn't it lucky that we haven't got Solomon in the Army?

QUAINT WEATHER PROPHETS. TOYS SERVE AS BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

QUAINT WEATHER PROPHETS. TOYS SERVE AS BAROD.ETERS. Properly speaking the duty of the hygroscope is a modest one-viz., to shcaw whether the air is dry or moist -while the hygrometet is assigned the more difficult t?ai of measuring as mospheric moisture. Owing to the fact, however, that the approach of a barometricq depression, with its at Stendants, rain or snow, is accompan ied by an increase in the humidity of the air, the hygroscope serves as a rough kind of weather glass, and, in nasome of its forms, is often referred Sto as a barometer. The' great majority of hygroscopes are- mere toys but since they are in common use the whole world over, and are often very ingeniously devis ed, science cannot afford to ignore them, but should rather endeavour to enlighten the public as to their true character. - A great number of/substances pos sessed in a marked degree the pro .perty of absorbing moisture when the air is humid, and giving it out when the air becomes dry. Such substan ces are...

SOLDIER PRIESTS OF FRANCE. Men Who Are Doing Splendid Work. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

SOLDIER PRIESTS OF FRANCE. Men Who Are Doing Splendid Work. "He would go through fire to help us, he is a hero, the bravest of the brave; I never saw a man like him." So spoke a French soldier of one of the innumerable French clergy who are in the ranks. This particular priest. Father do Gironde is his name, was decorated early in the war with the Legion of Honor and the Military Cross for crawling close to the German lines and thus getting valuable information. On another occasion he volunteered to explore a wood of which it was un certain whether it was occupied by the enemy or noL It would not be an exaggeration to say that the whole French Army is struck by the heroism of France's sol dier priests Numbers of them have been decorated. Most of them are averse to their exploits being known. There are three bishops serving in the French Army. One is serving as a stretcher bearer. "There goes a plucky chap." said a troupier, watch ing him and not knowing he was a bishop, as he carrie...

SURPRISES OF WARFARE RIFLE THAT SHOOTS ROUND CORNERS. ADAPTED-TO MACHINE GUNS, IT WOULD DEFY ENEMY CHARGES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

SURPRISES OF WARFARE RIFLE THAT Si-lOOTS ROUND COPRNERS. ADAPTED-ITO MACHINE GUNS, IT WOULD DEFY ENEMY CHARGES. Great wars have always produced some- innovations in methods of de struction that have been the wonder of their period and the anathema of those who have suffered by them. We have teen the uses of poisonous gas, atrocious in themselves, but the more atrocious because their introducers had pledged themselves toclivilisation never to employ any such weapon. Hamilcar, a Carthaginian general, introduced what was at that period, an astonishing - man-killing device. He employed armed elephantasagainst barbarians, who had never even heard of such cfeatures. The elephants had been trained to kill with steel point ed tusks and to crush with their huge feet, The slaughter was terrible ; the barbarians were paralysed, and des troyed. Assurbanipol, the Assyrian. likewise known- as , Sardanapulus, caused his soldiers to hurl ,cats into the Egyptian cities. As these cats were peculiarly...

Marvels of a "Mile of Front." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

Marvels of a "Mile of Frond." Probably few of us who read of a "mile of front" have any real concep tion of the enormous labor and ma terial that go to its making. For a mile of front among the swamps of Flanders, for example, with its firat and second lines of trenches, its com munications and breastworks, the necessary barbed wire is 900 miles in length-long enough to reach from London to Perth and back-and weighs 110 tons. The sandbags required for its pro tection number eix and a quarter mil lions. So many are they, that placed end to end they would stretch across Europe from North Cape in Norway to Cape Mlatapan, the southernmost point in Greece; and their weight is more than a thousand tons. To fill these million of sandbags and place them in position on para pet, paradoe, or dugout, would keep five hundred industrious men hard at work for twelve months; for the aver age man cannot fill and place more than twenty-five sandbags in one night. In addition to these thousands of mi...

CLINCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

CLINCHED. Counsel for plaintiff was delivering. the peroration of an impassioned ad dress. While thundering forth his el oquence, he was leaning for support on the back of a chair in front of him. He was a gentleman of much weight, in more ways than one, while the chair was an ancient one, and it galre way under the .train placed up on it, with the rec-'lt that the bar rister fell prone to the floor amongst the wreck. Quickly regaining his feet he remarked : "That proses the strength of my argument." This was mat with a gentlu ripple of merriment all round, which speed ily merged into a roar of laughter When the opposing counsel replied: "My learned brother's argument may be all that he.claims for it, hut it fell to the ground." - A young artist once persuaded his friend to come and view his latcat effort. The two stood before the can as for some time in silence. Finally the young man asked, "Don't you think, sir, that this painting of mine is-well-er-tolerable ?" The friends eyes t...

Perishable Parcels. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

Perishable Parcels. The.question of the expeditiousdeli very of perishable parcels by the Rail way department will engage the atten tion of' the Minister -of Railways shortly. Mr Wynne is engaged in farni liarising himself with the general - finances of the railways, with a view to effecting economics, and he has already made several suggestions, which will bear fruit in the future. The amalgamation of the way and works - branch with the construction branch, in order to bring the latter under the control of the Commissioners, is a matter which will come up for consideration at an early date, and the economies to be effected by this step are likely to be large. With regard to the handling of perishables, the Mini ster intends to follow the course which he adopted when Postmaster-General relative to the delivery of agricultural parcels. At that time he secured men who themselves were keenly interested in the scheme to look after the deliv eries, with the result that as far as the post...

THE LATEST DOG STORY. SETTERI WIG-WAGS DANGER SIGNALS. Fishermen are noted for the tall stories theyvtelt of their prowess, but they are not in it; when a bunch of Isportsmen get together and begir. tel ling what their dogs have done in the search for game. A well-known animal painter in his aesociation with dog-fanciers has heard many tall stories, hLt the most extreme of all is the one that he re peated the other day. "Do any of you gentlemen know the Russian setter, sometimes called the gclden Fetter ?" asked an admiral in the Navy, who was a member of the shooting party. "I was once station ed at Petrograd, as attache to our Ambassador. While there, beinr? by chance able to render some slight ser-' vice to a Russian nobleman, he, knowing me to be very- keen on dogs made me a present of a very fine Russian setter of his own breeding. I kept the dog with me until ordered back to my ship and then took him aboard. We -were some time cruising about, during which time, finding the dog...

PLOUGH LAYS ELECTRIC WIRES. TWO MEN REPLACE A SCORE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

PLOUGH LAYS ELECTRIC WIRES. TWO M1EN REPI.ACE A SCORE. An American inventor has lately developed httachments for a nvotor truck which enables telephone and telegraph cables to be extended under ground between militaryfpositions ex peditiously and with a minimum of labour. The equipment can be ap plied to standard trucks at compara tively low expense. An adtjustable plough that will cut furrows of dilf erent lengths is fixed to a car im mediately behind the driver's seat. A steel tube, through which a cable can he passed from a large spool held in t a cradle provided on the floor of the machine, is set a number of inchee behind the plough and ii alighment with it. Following this a spreader plate is arranged to fill the ploughed earth back into the furrow, while at the ex treme rear there is a heavy roller that completes the work. Thus com munication wires are laid in a single operation by merely driving the truck along at the rate of two or three miles an hour and keeping the plough ...

THE FAIRIES HAVE NEVER A PENNY TO SPEND. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 25 January 1918

THE FAIRIES HAVE NEVER A PENNY TO SPEND. This delightful whimsy Is from the pages of "Punch": The fairies have never a penny to spend, They haven't a thing put by, But theirs fIs the dower of bird and of flower, And theirs are the earth and the sky. A And though you should live in a palace of gold Or sleep in a dried-up ditch, You could never be poor as the fairies are, And never as rich. Since ever and ever the world began They have danced like a ribbon of flame, They have sung their song through the centuries long, And yet it Is never the same, And though you be foolish or though you be wise, With hair of silver or gold, You could never be young as the fairies are, And never as old.
