THE OPTOPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 June 1917
THE OPTOPHONE. At the Rontgen Society's meeting, Dr. E. E. Foornier d'Aibe, D.Sc., lec tured on the properties and applica tions of selenium. He said that the peculiarity of light action on seleni um could not be due to heat, as had been suggested, and he believed that some kind of ionisation theory would be propounded as a final solution of the whole question. Selenium was actually capable of discovering light too faint to be visible to the eye. He calculated that, with the aid of selen ium, one ought tobe able to discover stars three magnitudes lower than those visible in the ordinary way. The usual limit for naked-eye vision was about the sixth magnitude, so that with selenium one ought to be able to obtain the ninth magnitude, and selenium would keep this start over the eye wherever optical contrivances might be used. He had been able to make a star record- itself chronogra phically, and even ring a bell in its passage, which was quite a simple thing to do, considering the very ...
Cicely Vibart's Love. (Published by Special Arrangement.) (Copyright.) CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 June 1917
Cicely Vibart's Love. By ANNI1E HAYNES Author of "Lady Carew's Secret.' "Footprints of Fate," Etc.. E?c (iublished by Special Arrangement.) (Copyright) CHAPTER XX. Lord Norcaster had been to his club In Pall Mall. Now he was walk ing up Bond-street with a view to calL ing on his tailor. More than once a man nodded to him, several times w.men smiled at him from their motor but Stephen did. not heed them, he kept on hfs way, his lark face grim 'nd unbend ing, his eyes seeing not 'ng of the gay crowd round him. He was thinking of the last time he had walked up Bond-street. It was before his marriage, before Alaric Bearmain's death, and Cicely had been with him. Not the pale. heavy-eyed, listless Cicely he had left at Norcaster Towers this morn ing, but the gay, light-hearted Cicely Vibart that her audiences at the Har lequin had loved. In spite of himself, his face softened as he remembered the various incidents of that walk. Cicely had insisted on buying a great bunch of violets from ...
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXIII. VICTORIA NEGLECTS HER DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 June 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XXIII. VICTORIA NEGLECTS HER DUTY. Victoria needs to wake up frc-n her lethargy in regard to recruiting. Of all the States, she is giving the poor est results. As a whole, the Com monwealth was asked to provide 16,500 volunteers monthly, but little more, than one-third of that number is coming forward. Victoria, instead of giving 4570. which is her proper monthly quota, hardly provides 1000, not a, quarter of the number wanted. In none qf the States is the requitad quota nearly obtained, but in West Australia the results are the best. Victoria contents herself with remain ing right down at the bottom of the list. A very energetic volunteering campaign has been carried on for five mouths, but all efforts have fail ed to shake Victoria up. In case this may have been the fault of organisa tion, working methods have now been placed on a different footing, and vig orous efforts are being made to put more life and enthusiasm into the cause. But it is realised ...
THE TOILER'S EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 21 June 1917
THE TOILER'S EDUCATION. In his book, "Child and Country," Will Levington Comfort, author of many serious novels and a contributor to numerous magazines, deals with his own ideals and beliefs on the subject of education as regards workmen. In one part of his interesting volume he says: "I would support every plan or dream of education, and none other, that seeks to find out for the youth his life-work. I would call upon every workman personally to help, and urge for every community the good ness of its products and not the richness of its markets. I would put the world's premium upon fine work manship of the hand or brain or spirit, and a stiff pressure upon the multipli cation of these products by mechan ical means, for we have too many common things and so few fine things. I would inculcate in the educational ideal, first of all, that in every man there is a dream, just as there is a soul." Niece: Uncle, they say there are more marriages of blondes than ofat brunettes. Why is it, I...
NOTHING SERIOUS. JANE'S EXCUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
NOTHING SERIOUS. :" 'JANE'S EXCtI?S ;I want an egg this morning: Jane. and I want it boiled lightly." said Mrs. Faddem. Jane, the new "skivvy," an?ous to please, hurried on to boil the egg. In about dateen minutes she bore the egg triumphantly into the dining room and retired. "Jane!" called Mrs. Faddem a mo ment later. "Jane, didn't I tell yoa to boil this egg lightly ? It's as hard as a brick !" Jane trembled. "Well, mum," she whined. " how can you expect me to time a hegg when the clock's ten minutes fast ?"
THE NOISELESS AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
THE NOISELESS AGE. -4---- Are we really approaching the Noiseless Age, when sound will no longer be necessary to communicate human messages? Mr. George Ethel bert Walsh (writing in the "Associa ted Sunday Magazine" of America) says, I was riding in the subway when two women facing each other were engaged in an animated conver sation without words. Not a sound escaped their lips ; yet they were talking and smiling, using all the little suggestive shrugs of the shoulders and raising of the eye brows that denote intense interest in their conversation. I pondered a mo ment in silence, and did not grasp the key to the situation, until one of them laughed and exDloded with glee : "That's fine, Mabel I I could read every word." Then it dawned upon me. They were learning lip reading ; one of the latest fads, I understand, among the fashionable set. They were not deaf -far from it-they had keen ears, and could "hear" .all' that their neighbours in the car said ; brt no one could hear them. L...
AMERICA'S OLDEST PEAR TREE [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
AMERICA'S OLDEST PEAsR TREE There is a wonderful pear tree still lourishing and bearing fruit which was planted nearly 300 years ago in the village of Salem. Mass. At that time Covernor Endicott, being very interested in fruit-farming, sent to Dorchester for an English pear tree. After some considerable time the tree arrived in a somewhat dried up condition, but being very carefully planted and watched over by Gover nor Endicott himself, it survived the long journey, and became, after some years, a most noted fruit tree. It is carefully tended and surrounded by a fence. Every visitor to Denver, Mass., seizes the opportunity of see ing this remarkable tree, which grows near the Denver River. When Gover nor Endicott died, in 1665,. he left the famous tree to his daughter's care, making special of it in his will.

TOO PREVIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
TOO PREVIOUS. Two gentlemen were travelling in one- of-the-hill counties of Kentucky not long ago. They had been driving for two hours without encountering a human being, when they came in sight of a cabin in a clearing. It was very still. The dogs lay sleeping in the sun, the thin mule grazed round and round in a great circle, to save the trouble of walking and one lean, lank. rnan leaned against a tree and let time roll b,y. "Wonder if he can speak?" caid one traveller to the other. "Try him," cail his companion. "How do you do ?" said the Nor thberner. "Howdy ?" remarked the Souther n r, languidly. "Pleasant country." "Fur them that likes it.:' "Lived here all your life ?" The Southerner spat pensively in the dust. "Not yit," he said.
PRECIOUS PRIVILEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
PRECIOUS PRIVILEGES. ---+f--- Military decorations frequently carry with them curious privileges. For instance, the Legion of Hon our, the coveted French decoration, protects its owner from being sen tenced to imprisonment. If a mem ber of the Legion of Honour has committed any crime, he cannot be sentenced until he has. been formally expelled from the Legion. This is done by the judge saying : "You have been found wanting in honour ; in the name of the Legion I solemn ly expel yon from its ranks." After that the law takes its ordinary course. ,. A curious and solemn privilege is attached to the Rusdlan . Order of the Cross of St. Andrew, which was foun ded - by 1698 by Peter the Great, to incite his nobles to deeds of valour in the war with Turkey; which was then being carried on. Any, man upon whom this decora tion has been conferred may once in his life demanded the Imperial par for a fellow-countryman awaiting death on the gallows.

CAN THE ACTOR CURE DISEASE. SENSATIONAL STAGE SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
CAN THE ACTOR CURE DISEASE. SENSATIONAL STAGE SUGGES TION. Can disease be cured by means of the stage ? That is a big question, for the stage can reach hundreds where the physician can reach only tens. Can it be done? The answer is sup plied by Prof. S. F. Austin.. It is that, in the light of modern psychology, it is entirely within the range of possibility. Moreover, it is probably only by making some such radical -departure as that that the legitimate drama can hope to stand aga'nst the aggression of the motion picture. Just suppose for a moment that the playwright could succeed not on ly in amusing his audience, and in amusing it to a degree in which it has never been amused before, and at the same time reducing its doc tor's bill as well. Suppose that he could send every individual, including the tired business man, away from the theatre feeling in infinitely bet ter spirits than'whqn he came in. Suppose that he could restore only one invalid to health. There are no two ways abo...

Greenwood, J.P., occupied :tde chair, and there was a satisfactory attendance.

At the Buffet they could get a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa, and they saw something of home surroundings. This -was greatly appreciated by the men. To raiec funds for the. Buffet it had been arranged to hold a flower show in September,. and they hoped to get assistance from all parts, of the shire. Both young and old were interested in -ehow of this kind, and if all assisted the succe...
THE SECRET OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 22 June 1917
THE SECRET OUT. After all, human nature is every where the same. A certain soldier, a member of the Landwehr, had re ceived his hundredth pair of warm woollen stockings knit by fair hands. Fritz must he a regular Don Juan,' said one of hi Ieess lorttnate com radie. "No," said another, a fellow townsman of the accused. "No, it isn't that. The fact is, Fritz before the war came was teacher in a girls' school." "Why theer pouts ?" "Look at this press notice," stormed the actress. "The critic speaks highly of your genius." "And never mentions my gowns."
