WANTED TO KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
WANTED TO KNOW. The chaffeur was home on leave for a few days, and he was quite the greatest man in the little French vil lage. For the chauffeur had had the honour of driving General Joffre, and everybody from the schoolmaster to the rich ol f rmer, Maitre Elaise, wanted toknow all about it. "But surely he talked to you now and again ?" they asked. "Sometimes," said the chauffeur. "Burt he never said much." "Still," they pressed him, " there must have been occasions when-'" "I remember once," said the chant feur, "we stopped, and General Jof fre got out of the car while I was working at it. He did talk to me then." "Yes ?" they said. "Yes," said the chauffeur, "he gave me a cigarette, and, 'Eh bien, mon brave,' he said, 'eh bien, mon brave, i how long do you think the war will last?'"

SOFT SOAP. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
SOFT SOAP. There are rich men who swallow with healthy appetite all the homage paid them, but there is another type of wealthy fellow who is always try ing to delude hirqself with varying success that he is a really good sort, whose popularity is due to his mag netism, and not to his fat wads of bank notes. It was to such a gentle man that. a common man went ang ling one day for favour. The opulent one beamed under the adroitly cho. en compliments, then, however, the old doubt seized him, and he exclaim ed : "Now, look here, I'm a plain man, and ask a plain question. Are you speaking to me or my money ?" The other man heaved a deep breath, fingered his hat, and edged wearily towards the door. Then he turned and dlelivered himself thusly: "When a snub-nosed, addle-pated, money-jingling son of a rich father guesses the truth, it's time to -look for the knob. Good morning, sir."
REVOLUTION IN FARMING PROMISED. MAY PRODUCE CROPS ON EXHAUSTED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
REVOLUTION IN FARMING PROMISED. MAY PRODUCE CROPS ON EX HAUSTED LAND. Before long the U.S. Governmetit Plant Bureau will make announce ment of an entirely new and very pic turesque discovery. You cannot grow beans year after year on the same patch of land-not profitably, at all events. It 'is the sane way with other kind of crops. Bz:t why ? There lies the discovery. It is because, under such circum stances, enemies of the bean (for ex ample)-especially tiny worms hostile to 4t-accumulate in excessive num bers. They accumulate because the beans are there, furnishing them with the particular kind of provender they require and thereby enabling them to multiply. The belief hitherto held, that the trouble was due to an exhaustion of proper bean food in the soil, has no basis in fact. No truth exists in the idea that potatoes exhaust the soil of certain elements, and that this is why they cannot be successfully grown year after year on the same patch. There is always in the soil plenty o...
PERSISTENT HOMER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
PERSISTENT HOMER. Jones used to breed pigeons-hornm ers. He sold one to a fincier, tweaty miles distant, but it flew home again. The fancier wrote to .Jones. asking him if it had returned, as it was missing. He replied that the bird was quite safe and was being sent again in a small basket, at the same time ad vising the fancier to shut it up for a time. This he did, but at the end of a month decided to risk it, and give it a flight. Raslt : It flew back to its old home. Letters were exchanged, and the advice given this time was, "If you must let it out, clip one of its wings.' The fancier acted on this advice, but, strange to say, the bird disap peared once again. A letter this time only brought the reply that "the bird had not been seen." However, at the end of a fortnigh,, the fancier was delighted to receive a postcard, intimating that "The bird has returned-must have walked all the way, as he has corns on his feet as big as cherries." CareIesom,, s in putting his words together...
A Farmers' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
A Farmers' Union. Mr Bregenzer, an organiser in con nection with the Victorian Farmers' Union, addressed a meeting at the Pakenham Mechanics' Institute on Thursday night last. The attendance was small. Mr Wadsley was voted to the chair. In introducing the speaker he said he was quite in accord with the objects of the union. Mir Bregenzer said his object in visiting Pakenham was to give the farmers some information as to the Victorian Farmers' Union and to get a branch formed in the district if poss ible. The main object of the union was to safeguard the interests of the farmers. If the farmers desired to secure the justice to which they were entitled as primary producers they must organise. By organisation the Labor Party had made great pro gress, and the farmers could do the same if they stood together. The union was started in 1914, and had made great progress, notwithstanding that they had met with strong opposi tion from some quarters. It was formed on democratic lines, and bran...

ARE WOMEN STILL SAVAGES ? THEIR LOVE FOR SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
ARE WOMEN STILL SAVAGES? THEIR LOVE FOR SOLDIERS. There have been extraordinary out breaks of kissing on the departure of soldiers for the front between men and girls who were strangers. Why in every outbreak of war or threatened outbreak of war are these same scenes presented? Why does the sight of soldiers raise women to such emo tional heights? Why does she love a uniform ? In a recent paper Dr. Max Baf endeavours to answers these questions. Women, our authority contends, kiss soldiers because they are still savages, still primitive, lovers of strength, worshippers of force. "What a big, strong fellow," they will say, their gentle eyes lighting up as they rest upon some stalwart specimen. But they never say, "What a line weak, little fellow." Man. on the contrary, rarely praises bigness and stalwartness in the female. "What a lovely little girl," says man. Woman, the primitive, still sub consciously and consciously looks on man as the protector. The stronger the protector, the be...

Beaconsfield Upper. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
Beaconsfield Upper. The Boy Scout movement, which was inaugurated by Mr H. Glismann, some little time ago, has been such a success that almost every available boy is now a member. They meet every Saturday afternoon, when scout craft is learnt and practised. The ladies of the district, have formed a croquet club, and, having obtained permission from the trustees to construct a court in the hall grounds, a start has been made to get it ready, and it is anticipated that it will soon be in playing order. The trustees have decided to put new spouting around the hall. and to make some other needed improvements, and at a meeting held last week the tender of Mr A. Miller (Berwick) was accepted.

WAR SAVINGS CERTIFICATES [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
W.AR? SAvINGS ?CERTi~icAT[ES Small subscriptions are an import ant factor in tile success of our Wtar finances. The o!ltstalnling feature of the recent Blritishl " Victory " WarI Loan was the great number of small subscriptions which helpedr to swell the record proportions. The Banks, Financial and other Corporations have subscribed liberally to tihe various Australian WVar Loans but it is absolutely necessary that many thousands of smalsaubscriptions from the gdneral public should be re ceived to bring the amount up to the sum necessary to meet our War obli gations. Subscriptions to our War Loans are among the world's best in vestments and have a patriotic flavor Such a subscription is not a sacrifice. It is a duty anrd incidentally remuner ates subscribers handsomely. A large number of small subscriptions to the War Funds will be economically more effective than a small number of large subscriptions, hence the issue of War Savings Stamps in denominations of 6d and 2s 6d. and War S...

NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
NOTHING SERIOtS. -- ?-- Tom Moore, the poet, was the son of a Dublin grocer. Without any pushing on his part, his genius and his unafiected manner, made him a welcome guest everyvhere. All Lon don went mad over him. On one occasion, at a banquet, he bad made some brilliant witticisms. A snob. thinking to humiliate him, leaned over the table to the poet and quite aiudibly said, in a drawling tone : "Pway, sir, wasn't your father a grossah ?" Moore smilingly replied that be Was. "Then, pway," continued the snob., "woy didn't he make a grossah of vou ?" Moore quite affably retorted, "Wasn't your father a gentleman ? ' "Of course he was," was the re joinder. "Then why," queried Moore. "did n't he make a gentleman ofy.u ?" Haven : "I tell you what. Young; I have the sharpest wife you ever saw in your life. Why, the other day I gave her just barely enough money to go out and buy one dress, and, if you'll believe it, she rame home with two."' Young: "That is sharp. How did she manage it ?"...
CONTRABAND THE CENSOR CATCHES. WHAT THE MAILS REVEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 8 June 1917
CONTRABAfD THE CElR SOR CATCHES. WHAT THE MAILS RfEVEBAL. A search of the baggage of a Ger man lady who was booked to sail from New York to Rotterdam by a Dutch liner revealed the astonishing fact that three of her 16 trunks were filled with sole leather and the re maining 12-of an aggregate weight of over a ton-with hunks of crude Para rubber. In her state-room were found asuit-case full of dental rubber and a box of honey jars filled with ruhbb.r solution. To cap the climax, several hundred yards of pure rubber surgeon's band age-weighing close to fifty pounds_ swathed her body from hips to shoul ders. She was led into the searching room a stout waddling Fraulein of apparently 200 pounds, her ample fig ure fairly bursting the hooks and seams of her fashionable travelling suit; she came out five minutes later a scrawny dame of 150 foundering in the folds of the same suit like a con testant in a sack race. Mr. R. J. Bjurstedt, who tells this story, was shown in England practi cally ...
