The 9.30 to-night," Mrs. Bowman nodded pleasantly as the man put her be longings on to the rack, in a first class carriage on the express to town Then she sat back in her corner, and extracting a pocket book from her bag turned over the pages quickly. The train was on the point of starting. The stationmaster had given the signal, when the door o` aMrs. Bowman's compartment was thrown open again and someone sprang in. For the moment Mrs. Bowman did not see who it was, but she had been reckoning on having the compart ment to herself, and her glance at the intruder was .scarcely amiable. Then, her frown deepened, two vertical lines came in her forehead as she recognised Alma Beresford. "Well, I do declare. To think of me being pitch-forked in on you like 1 this," Alma exclaimed in her higt C...
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXI. The German Danger in the Pacific. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 June 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXI. The German Danger in the Pacific. It Continues to be remarked that Australia does not know she is at war. Wherever we look no signs of war are apparent. The training camps are shut up or nearly empty. and the pursuits and pleasures of thle nation remain unaffected. We eat well, we sleep well. This, too, at a time when Great Britain is nearly on a half ration of bread, and sugar is almost unobtainable. Besides being short of essential foods, the people of Great Britain have, from day to day, to deal with the most stupendous diffi culties, and to face new dangers even before old ones have been surmount ed. Great Britain seemed as if she were winning the war when ruthless submarining began. She has just be gan to cope with this grave danger when suddenly Russia becomes a source of weakness. The effects of this new danger have already been tremendous. The French and British offensives on tile West were so mighty that they were rapidly over powering the ...

FRIED VEGETABLE MARROW. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
FRIED VEGETABLE MARROW. For this a nice-sized marrow should be chosen, and after peeling it and taking out the seeds it should be cut into pieces, about one inch and a half long and an inch wide. Sprinkle well with salt, and leave for an hour or two. Then wring them In a cloth, squeezing out the super fllous water, but not breaking the pieces at all. Now dredge the pieces with flour, and plunge them into boiling fat. When nicely browned drain them on kitchen paper, and when quite free from grease dish them on a fancy paper. They can be dipped into egg and breadcrumba, and then fried if preferred.
Ladies' Column. HOW TO COOK VEGETABLE MARROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
Ladies' Co umn. HOW TO COOK VEGETABLE IMARROWS. If you cut out these recipes and keep Sthem, by you, you will be able to make some very tasty dishes from this vegetable. Some .people cut the marrows into pieces before boiling them, but this is a mistake, as they lose more of their flavour in this way than if cooked whole. They can be peeled or not before cooking; the former method, how ever, ensures the absence of any, wa ter except that contained in the mar row itself. They are veiy nice steam ed, and .in that case will take from twenty minutes to one hour to cook, according to the size. If boiled, fif teen minutes to three-qluarters of an hour must be allowed, and the water must actually boil before putting them .in. The simplest way of cooking them is boiling, and here is a good recipe for boiled vegetable marrow. Wash and wipe the vegetable marrow, do not peel it, but prick holes in it with a fine knitting needle; place whole in boiling salted water and boil quickly till tender ...
A PROFITABLE INDUSTRY THE BREEDING OF SILVER BLACK FOX ON PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
A PROFITABLE INDUSTRY TH"I BREEDING OF SILVER BLACK FOX ON PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. The domestication of the silver black fox began in a smail way on Prince Edward Island about a quar Iter of a century ago. 'The one idea of the pioneers was the production and sale of an exceptionally valuable fur as a source of profit. They found it to be a most profitable business after Ithey had solved the many initial di ficulties. In some instances, during the year 1910, the breeders were able to dispose of single pelts in London at a price of £500 sterling and up wards. When it became known that the business of fox breeding procured such alluiing profits, other persons desired to undertake it, and the sale of breed ing foxes began, first at moderate pri ces, which rapidly increased as the demand far exceeded the supply. From 1910 down to the beginning of the great European war few ranch-bred silver black fox pelts were offered for sale, as the sale of breeding foies was more profitable. In the mea...

TEMPERAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
TEMPERAMENT. A mountain and a thunderstorm were one day lying clse to each oth er trying to pass the time of the day. The thunderstorm was mumbling and growling to itself when the mountain said : "Why is it, my friend, that~yon are always complaining about something? You appear to me never to be satisfi ed. If I were not inclined to take things as calmly as I do, your mut terings would annoy me." "It's a matter of temperament," snapped the thunderstorm. "Everyone to his own impulses!' "I used to do something like that," loused the mountain, "when I was volcanic. I was a constant terror to everyone, and frightened some of the best people away, but I have long since settled down. Your amateurish restlessness would annoy me if my ex perience had not rendered me immune to the faults of others." At this the thanderstorm flashed fire and b'ecame so thoroughly angry that it burst into torrents of tears. It flooded the mountain, and then rushed off in the distance venting its displeasure on...

DOES MARRIAGE PRESERVE LIFE ? MONS. BERTILLON ON WEDDED BLISS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
DOES MARRIAGE PRLESERVYE LIFE ? - -- MONS. BERTILLON ON WEDDED BLISS. "Marry if you want to live to a good old age," says Dr. Jaques Bertillon, and he gives reasons, with statistics to bark them up. "A married man or woman has." he says, "thrice as much chance for a good, long run of life as a bachelor or a spinster." He also shows that the average of mortality among wid owers is greater than the average am rag married men; so he recommends that they marry again, provided they are under 60 years of age. To young men Bertillon has this to say : "Marry and you will do well. even from a selfish standpoint; but watch carefully over your wife's health, as even from this egotistical point of view her loss would be a terrible mis fortune; for your life depends in a great measure on her own." To women his advice is: "And to you, mademoiselle, I give counsel to marry in your most selfish interest, as mortality among married women is less than among spinsters of the same age--at least, after ...
