IN DEATH NO REFUGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
IN DEATH NO REFUGE. Actors have, as a rule, a wonderful store of stories upon which to draw, but thejbare by no means all so funny as that told by Mr. Walter Passmore concerning a certain fat actor who was invariably short of breath. The poor fellow was certainly a bad actor, bue he did his best throughout the play, and it was more his mis fortune than his fault that the best he could do was .o exceedingly poor that the audience never ceased from guying" him. When, in the last scene of all, the unhappy Thespian was supposed to he shot, he probably thought that in simulated death he would enjoy tem porary peace ; but it was not to he, for even when lying dead on the ground his panting was only too vis ible to the audience, one member of whom in the 'gallery shouted to a friend on the other side of the house. "I say, Bill, look how his bel lows blow!"'-a remark that flesh and blood could not endure unnoticed. Gathering himself together, and with a look of intensely injured dig nity, t...
Beaconsfield. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
Beaconsfield. Mr Geo. W. Martin's premises at Beaconsfield, situated close to the rail way station, were destroyed by fire early on Sunday morning last. The business was purchased a few weeks ago by Mr MeLaren, and a fresh stock of grocery and drapery had been put in. Everything was destroyed. The . origin of the fire is a mystery. The stock was not insured, and Mr Me Laren will therefore suffer a serious loss. Mr Ahern, clerk of works, and some of the councillors, paid us a visit a few days ago to enquire into a com plaint by Mr Chirnaide relative to the fencing on the new road leading to the station. It was decided that a few small repairs should be carried out.

THEY SAY @ There are, and there will be, no quitters among the Allies. " Never again !" has become our battle-cry. D. Lloyd-George, M.P. What death takes from those who fall enters into those who are left standing. The number of lamps grow less, but the flame rises higher.-Mau rice Maeterlinck. Largely in vain will this war have been fought and all these sufferings endured if the peoples of the world are to fall back into a state of per manent alarm, suspicion, and hos tility.-Lord Bryce. The Hun spirit is a mask. It does not spring from within, but has been attached from outside. He does not feel brave uitil some sabre-rattling superman has labelled him invincible. -Holbrook Jackson. The aims of the Allies are well known. They are not selfish ends, not vindictive ends, but they require that there shall be adequate reparation for the past and adequate security for the future.-H. H. Asquith, M.P. I feared that war was coming and England was mentally unprepared, and I wondered how the...

Ladies' Column. HARICOT SOUP. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
Ladies' Column. HARICOT SOUP. In this trying weather a basin of good thick soup is as nourishing as any preparation of pulse or of vege tables.

Fry a sliced onion and a tiny piece of garlic in butter, and add them to the soup. which boil very steadily for one hour. The soup must be stirred frequently whilst cooking.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 1 June 1917
HOUSEHOLD. HINTS. When brooms begin to wear. cut the bristles level again, and the brush will do.lts work as well as ever. Always rinse black stockings in blue water, and they will keep a good colour right on to the end. Damp knives slightly before rub bing. Yor. will find it cleans the knives quickly and much easier for yourself, and gives a very bright po lish. If new tinware is rubbed over with fresh lard and thoroughly heated in the oven before it is used, it will ne ver rust afterwards, no matter how much it is put in water. If new enamel pans are placed in a pan of water and allowed to come to the boil and then cool, they will be found to last much longer, without burning or cracking. If you want to keep the steel of your gas-stove bright with very lit tle trouble, rub it over with an oiled rag every time you use the oven and while the stove is still hot. If you have cold baked potatoes left over, don't throw them away. Dip for a moment in hot water, and then re bake till warm...

FLYING GOOD FOR THE COMPLEXION. A slip of a girl, Miss Ruth Law, who is at present visiting England w!th the object of buying one of the fast English aeroplanes, which, she says, have a great reputation in Amer-1 ica. looks quite unlike the strenuous type of sportswoman. And yet it was she who set America talking about her prowess as a flying woman last No vember when she made a record for cross-country flyingV Ifer longest flight on that occasion. when she was attempting to make for New York from Chicago without a lescent was 590 miles, the previous record held by ail American flyer be ing 452 miles. Miss Law set out on her quest for the swiftest aeroplane, built for cross country flying, which money can buy, with her eye on the great Ameri can Air Derby, which is to be flown this year. The course is from San Francisco to New York. a distance of 1.000 miles, and Mtiss Law hopes to fly 1.000 miles "at a jump," as she picturesquely says.

LINSEED CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 June 1917
LINSEED CROPS. So far linseed has not been grown n this State on an extensive scale, Ind that grown has been for purpose tf experiment only (says the April is ue of the N.S.W\V. "Agricultural Ga :ette"). Last season a crop was sown mn the Yanco Experiment Farm and felded only about 14 bushels of seed lcr acre. This does not pay in com marison with other crops which can be trown on this area. If, however, the itraw could be utilised as well as the ieed, there would be more inducement I o plant this crop. The irrigation Lrea is certainly the most promising ifstrict in the State for linseed culti *ation, on account of a regular sup Ily of water being assured. The nost suitable soil for growing UIn ;eed is that of a rather loamy de ;crlption. The seed should be sown - n the autumn, say, any time during tpril or early part of May. The 1 mount of seed to be sown is from 01b. to 40Ib. per acre, and to this reca should be applied with the seed bout 601b. of superphosphate. The eed can be so...

CLEANING THE KAISER'S FACE. Few people can say that they have helped to wash the face of the Kaiser. and. when it comes to the use of tur pentine in the process, probably the only Englishman who has enjoyed the privilege is the late ,Mr. W.

Australians wen carea i-or. Mr. II. M. Smeaton, one of the war work commissioners of the Australa stan Y.3I.C.A.. recently visited Fland ers in the interests of our troops and went through the town of Ypres. In an interesting account of the now fam-' ons town he says it was a most extra ordinary sight. If we conceived a town of 30,000 Inhabitants, quite de serted, every building unroofed, and the greater portion of the buildings absolutely smashed to pieces, we could form some idea of the picture of desolation the city presented. The Y.M.C.A. had four or five cellars there occupied as reading rooms and game rooms, and one or two gramophones. Those places were constantly in use. Iie met in France several Australian doctors whom he knew. It was splen did to see the great care that was taken of our men. Everything pos sible was done for their comfort and convenience.

A CURE FOR LEPROSY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 June 1917
A CURE FOR LEPROSY. Considerable interest is taken not only in the United States, but in Eu rope, about the discoveries in the treatment of leprosy by Angelo Gar cia, a native of Cuba. Garcia, who is unable to read or write, is said to have cured himself of the dreadful malady. He escaped from the leper settlement at Havana, and. buried himself in the bush for some years. After many attempts to find a herbal remedy, he devoted all his attention to oil of the chaulimoga, a tree which was brought to Cuba from Burma, and which was tried by the leper doctors without success. From time immemorial it has been employ ed in the cure of leprosy, rheumatism, and skin diseases. Oil extracted from another tree, the Gynocarolia odor ata, is said to possess the same pro perties. Garcia cured himself and several others, and the fame of his success induced the Havana special ists to invite him to come to them. He consented, specifying that he was to receive no remuneration, as he wished to enable h...
