OVERDOING IT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
OVERDOLNG IT. "A glass of beer occasionally," was the doctor's advice, but Henry Pect shook his head. Maria insisted on his being teetotal, for the duration of the war, although there was a barrel of beer in the cellar. "Tut-tut !" said the doctor as they parted. "You must inanage to over come your wife's scruples." A week later It was Mrs. Pect who sought the medicine man with a wearied face. "I'm afraid that Henry's suffering from a nervous breakdown," she said tearfully. "lie's always thinking he can hear Zeppelins, and running into - the cellar to hide from them. And be sides; he sometimes seems so strange and aggressive in his manner." Midnight ! The clock on the man telpiece had just struck the mystic hour, and one or two of the card players suggested it was time to go home, as they were perhaps trespass ing ort the kindness of the mistress of the house, who, by the way, was not present. "Not at all," said the host, with a gracious wave of the hand. "Time is of no account. Pla...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. WHY BROWN LEFT. Mr. Brown had not a very good op Anion of landladies in general until the other day, when he happened to see his bestowing a kindness on the cat. Of course he reasoned that any one who would be kind to dumb ani mals would be klpd to human crea tures, and he hastened to commend her actions. - "I'm glad to see that you give all the scrape to the cat, Mrs. Miggs." "Oh. yes, sir." she replied. "Wot I says, Mr. Brown, is, be kind to the cats. and yer'll find it saves yer 'arf the washin'-up."' -

BROWN WAS COOL. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
BROWN WAS COOL. Some time. ago a party named Brown had an appointment with a man in a distant city, and when the business was transacted he was urg Ed to accompany the other to a re ception. Brown consented. "Jim," he remarked, on reaching the house where the reception was held, and glancing around the room, "who is that painted old party'stack ed up against the papier-machl palm who looks like a cross between an Egyptian mummy and a circus clown ?" "That," replied Jim, with r rapid ly chilling expression, "is my wife." "Great Scot, Jim !" was the un a?baabhed rejoinder of Brown. "I went straight to headquarters for my in "-rmation, didn't I ?"

British Red Cross Appeal. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
British Red Cross Appeal. One of the most appreciated duties carried out by the workers under the Joint War Committee of the British Red Cross Society and the Order of St. John is that of facilitating the journeys of relatives who, under special War Oflice regulations. are permitted to visit oFlicers and men who have been dangerously wounded. The military authorities arrange for the landing of the relatives in France, the papers given by the War Office entitl ing the holder to proceed to the dis embarking point. But unless the hospital is in that immediate neighbor hood there are further formalities to be gone through, which might occasion delay and anxiety, especially to persons unaccustomed to travel. It is this gap that is filled by the Red Cross in the case of relatives of officers and by the Y.M.C.A. for relatives of N.C.O 's and men. All boats arriv ing at French ports are met, relatives with Casualty permits are saved trouble with the Customs, taken to fln;uhluarters. and, if...
THE GREAT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
THE GREAT QUESTION. . Private Jenks is suffering from con science. It happened this way. His comrade Binks had received a small - tin of sardines by post. He was not selfish, but having distributed the other contents of the parcel from home among his companions in billet, he felt justified in hiding the sardines for his sole enjoyment. Jenks saw him, waited his chance, opened the tin, and ate the contents. Binks caught him just as the last small fish was disappearing. Then it was he spoke the words which are destined to haunt Jenkins all his life. "Jenky," he said, solemnly, "in the days that are to be, how will you feel when your little son asks you-'Dad dy, whom did you do in the Great War ?' "
MISPLACED GLASSES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
MISPLACED GLASSES. A traveller entered an inn where a Quaker sat by the fire. Lifting a pair of green spectacles and rubbing his eyes, which looked very inflamed, the, newcomer, in one breath, called for some brandy and made a grevious complaint about his eyes. "They are getting weaker and weak er," said he. "And now even the - spectacles appear to be no good." The Quaker looked first at him and then at the brandy. '"I'll tell thee, friend, what I think," said he, "If thou wouldst wear thy spectacles over thy mouth - for a few months thine eyeswould get well again."

Why Boys Leave The Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
Why Boys Leave The Farm. " Why did you leave the farm, my lad? Why did you bolt and quit your dad? Why did you beat it off to town, and turn your poor old father down? Thinkers of platform, pulpit, press, are wallowing in deep distress; they seek to know the hidden cause why farmer ?oys desert their pas. Some say they long to get a taste of faster life and social waste; some say the silly little chumps mistake the suit cards .for the trumps, in wagering fresh and .germless air against- the smoky thoroughfare. We're all agreed the farm's-the place; so free your mind and state your case!" "Well, stranger, since you've been so frank, I'll roll.aside the hazybank, the misty cloud of theories, and show you where the trouble lies. I left my dad, his farm, his plough, because my calf became his cow. I left my dad -'twas wrong of course-because my colt became his horse. I left my dad to sow and reap, because my lamb be came his sheep. I dropped my hoe and stuck my fork, because my pig becam...
