SINGLE HANDED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
SINGLE HANDED. The "Liberte's" correspondent in Northern France given an account of a simple but impressive ceremony at P-, not far from the Somme front, where, General W-, in presence of a large number of high British and French officers, presented the Military Medal and Croix de Guerre with pilms to a British private who, by his coolness, courage, and resource, frus trated a German attack. The correspondent, who gives the soldier's name as "Jack," says Jack belonged to a battalion which had arrived in the sector of - to re lieve two French companfes In the trenches. The operation, always one requiring the utmost care, proceeded at first without incident. The Boches were freely shelling the communica tion trenches, but when the French troops were getting out of the tren ches, after wishing their British com rades good luck, the Germans hurled a half battalion to the attack. Jack by this time was in an advanced post well beyond our line, to which he had gone as a volunteer to watch ...
TREATMENT OF BURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
TREATMENT OF BURNS. The most important matter in the treatment of burns is the avoidance of poisoning, which is one of the gra vest dangers associated with burns. and often leads to serious trouble even in the case of only slight in jury. The strictest antiseptic mea sures must be taken, therefore, from the beginning. A good routine prac tice is first of all-to prick with a boiled needle any blisters that. may show themselves, first bathing the part with a solution of carbolic acid of a strength one in twenty. The whole surface affected should then be covered with a piece of soft linen or lint, which has been soaked in a so lutlon' of picric acid. This should be left on for two days. Any new blis ters should then be pricked with a needle as before, and the surface co vered with a piece of lint thickly spread with a mixture of vaseline and boracic ointment. This should be co vered with a thick layer of antiseptic wool and a bandage. If a burn actu ally becomes septic in spite of thes...
OUR WONDERFUL SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
OUR WONDERFUL SOLDIERS. A correspondent at the British front sends two stories heard at first hand at the base from men who have come out of the front line. One con cerns a mess in the front sine which was the envied of all the neighbour ing units because it enjoyed fresh ve getables every day. The cook and batman was often asked about it. His reply was invariable. "We get them from a garden near by," he al ways said. At last. the supply ceas ed. - The mess soon asked why. "We've had all there were," said the cook, "except, a few that were right on the edge of the Boche trench." Then it turned out that be had gone out every night into "No Man's Land" and gathered green vegetables from a garden which ran right down to the German front line. A chaplain told the next:-"It is astonishing," he said, "what the chaps will do to get a brew of tea, We were being badly strafe.i by the German guns when a shell set fire to a haystack just beside our lines. The illumina tion didn't lessen the st...
CHILBLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
CHILBLAINS. The amount of discomfort caused by chilblains is quite out of proportion to their seriousness, and sulfferers are usually willing to take alr.cst :av amount of trouble in orde: to pre vent their appearance. ;t must be remembered that chilblains are al most always due to defect!re circula tion, combined in many caes with pressure, sometimes with local cold. I have known one case where nhe pa tient had never had a chilblairn until one winter when he happeried to take up the study of clay modeling. The constant handling of the ccid. damp clay caused such chilblains thit his hands were for weeks almost useless from the pain and swelling. On dis continuing the modelling the chil blains disappeared, and have not since recurred. It is clear that the chief precaution to be taken is the improvement of the circulation. This should be helped by taking brisk daily walking exercise, by beginning the day with ten min utes' gymnastic or Swedish exercises; by frequent short periods of m...
HOW TO PLEASE A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
HOIOW TO PLEASE A WOMAN. "(no en l don't require to be told. ' he art comnies natural to them, and they understand how to please by in tuition. But others-and these the greater number-must learn in the school of experience. If you would please a woman you cannot be too careful about little things. It is just the seeming Insig nificant trifles that mean so much to her. A glance, a single word, a sigh, a: movement, may repel or charm. A woman may not be oable to analyse very deeply or say precisely where the jar comes in, but she is deeply sensitive to the significance of the little things. The small attentions andt civilitie.s of life please. A care less or perfunctory bow, a neglect to choose the road side when walking with her, a failure In attention when she speaks, may alter her whole opin ion of you. A woman liklies the sense of being taken care of. and if you look after her little creature comforts you are on the right road to her heart. if she is on a railway journey see that ...

CABBAGE IS GOOD FOR YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917
CABBAGE IS GOOD FOR YOU. The common cabhage is an exe lent food. So thought the people Ancient Egypt, who always ate it f. breakfast, and even raised altars tt the vegetable. It was Introduced into England by the Romans. The ancients believed the cabbage to be a cure for all sorts of illnesses, and it certainly has high nutritive lqualitics. It contains mineral sals, calcium and iron, and if served in the right way it not only nourishes the body but destroys injurious acids in the hinod tissues. If prepared in salad form, the cab bage will lose none ct it.; nouritis ment: but it retains a large amount even if plain boiled.

Murder Below Stairs. I know they talk of llymen's flame, Or else his lighted torch. In valentines, but all the same. Why should my mutton scorch? Why should my humble piece tof steak Be blackened as a shoe? Why glass and china daily break? Then, what am I to do? Why poison me with greasy soup. Or floury melted butter? A mnian must be a nincompoop Who can't his feelings utter. Unta:;:ed dinners daily go Just through the railings, look! There's been a murder down below - Young Cupid's shot my cook!

Very Well. Walking along a road in the remote Waest of Ireland, two tourists were passing one cf the cottages-or, as they are better known in the coun try. "cabins"-of the peasantry. This particular "rahin'" was even a more than usually dilapidated specimen of its class. and the chimney, consisting mainly of tihe remlains of an old top hat., rescnted a comical. If pathetic, appearance. Tipping his friend a ,:ink. one of the tourists accosted a youtth who was sitting contentedly on a fence. "I say, my boy." he said. "does that chimney draw well?" "Shure, thin, it does." was the promatt reply; "it draws the notice o' ivery fool that passes by!"
