TOO LATE. *Little Mufflagtoo was a father for the first time, and nothing '-existed in the world save wife and baby. It was the other morning that, just as he . had opened his desk somewhere in the city, the 'phone bell rang. "You're wanted, air !J' shouted the - war-time office-girl. "A lady-" Rushing to the 'phone, he grabbed the receiver. "Yes, dear, what is it?" "Oh, Cuthbert, dear, come at once. Baby is-" He waited to hear no more. Fling ing down the receiver, he seized his hat and rushed into the street. With in half a minute he was being whirl ed in a taxi to the suburb where all his hopes were centred. His face was lined with anxiety as he burst into the house and ran upstairs three steps at a time. "Here I am, darling !" "Oh, you're late, Cuthbert. Baby had his little toe in his mouth, and he looked so pretty. I! wanted you to see him."

Warmer. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
Warmer. An old lady who owned a farm went into the fields one winter's day to see the men at work. Coming home, she said to her maid. "Betty, put the ket tie on and make those poor men some tea; it is freezing hard." She put her feet on the fender and sipped a glass of hot whisky. After a while she called out; "You need not bother about the tea., Betty, it's getting warmer now." "In m-l

The Y.M.C.A. is doing fine work not only at the front, but in all the military camps, and any move that is made to raise funds should be liberally supported.

THE LATE MR. W. H. BLOOMFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
THE LATE MR. W. H. BLOOM FIELD. It is with sincere regret that we have to record the death of Mr William Henry Rothwell Bloomfield, which occurred on Sunday evening, last from heart failure. The sad event was en tirely unexpected and came as a shock to the community. Mr Bloomfield was- in his 53rd year, being born at Woodend on September 12, 1864. He was the youngest son of the late Mr and Mrs John Bloomfield, of " Roth well," Bloomfield Road, Ascot Vale. His father was one of the pioneers of Victoria, arriving here in the ship '- Africa " about the beginning of January, 1857, about the time of the arrival of Governor Sir Henry Barkley. He started as a workman on Emerald Hill line, visited the diggings at Ballarat and Bendigo, and afterwards became a large contractor, eventually settling at Ascot Vale, where he died in 1876. The late Mr Bloomfield's mother was also an early colonist, arriving in Victoria in the ship " British Trident," a few months after the landing of her husband. ...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Lueions and BEggs.-These precious articles will both ?eep splendidly for I as long as six mouths in a box of or dinary sand. The lemons must be freslly picked, then packed in rows, allowing sutlclient space so that the fruit does not touch. Then pour in a fresh layer of sand and start in rows again. When required, just put the hand in amongst the sand and take out as many as ard needed. Any body with a lemon-tree wilt thus be able to save the lemons from season to season. I have been doing this for years. and never have to buy lemons. Freshly-laid . eggs can be treated in the same way, and will be as fresh and sweet six months after wards as when packed away. How ever, they will be only suitable for cooking purposes, as the yoke will spread when the egg is broken. therefore, a couple of boxes of clean builders' sand are as good as the best ice-chest on the market, so far as keeping fruit and eggs is concerned. Sweet Potato Spinach.-The leaves an-' young shoots of th...

Wily Wiggles. For the third time the commercial traveller, possessed with an energy that nothing could suppress, called upon Farmer Wiggles with his sam ples of the patent food for calves, which had won for his firm a world wide reputation. "Aw can't bee no difference in them calves of mine yet," said the farmer; hbut I 11 take another free sample." 'The commercial, not discouraged, left him a third sample, and returned again a fortnight later for an expected order. "The calves are in a moighty bad way," said Farmer Wiggles. "Aw don't think they'll live the day out." "Did you give them the food regu larly?" asked the traveller, with a long face. "0' coorse Aw did! But they got plump, so Aw sold 'em to t' butcher. Aw ain't got no calves now. so don't need any more o' t' patent food. Good morning to 'ce, sir!" There are persons who will not hesitate to put a penny In the offer tory plate-a trifle they would not think of offering to a porter for carry ing their luggage. They want a goo...

Ahern proceeded against Harriet Coombs, May Coombs, and Ada Coombs for alleged obstruction of a shire employe in the execution of his duty. Mr W. Home (Home and Wilkinson) appeared for complainant, and Mr D. Herald for defendants.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge. .I~ r Home then outlined the facts of the case which he proposed to put forward in evidence.

Starch From Maize.—A Successful Australian Enterprice. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
Starch From Malze.--A Successful Australian Enterprise. Three,.years ago on the banks of the .Maribyrnong River the .Maize Products Pty. Ltd., at an expense of some £65,000, erected a great fac tory, and, equipping it with every mo dern facility, began the work of com merciallsinug Australian-grown maize. To-day, goods of their manufacture are to be found at practically any grocer's store In Australasia, and the enterprise is a proved success. One of the company's most successful pro ducts is "Dandy" starch. Before its making, maize starch, strangely enough (for line-grade maize is large ly grown in Australia), was little known to housewives of this country. it was, however, no experiment. In America, a country of laundering and laundered wear, it has for many years been in universal use. Its difference from, and superiority to, ordinary starch lie in its greater strength and purity. It goes further. It will not harm 'the daintiest fabrics ore cause cracking and breaking of lin ens,...
The Best Bond. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
The Best Bond. Aside and altogether apart from the patriotic phase, an Australian War Loan Bond or War Savings Certi ficate is an excellent investment. The Commonwealth War Loans already floated, and the War Savings Certificates now offered, in point of merit, rank ahead of all other Aus tralian securities and investments. Our credit is good at home and abroad-no one here, or for that mat ter, anywhere else, doubts the sta bility of the Commonwealth Govern mentiwho are the borrowers. Australia will he able to meet the interest on its War Loans, without any difliculty. Our shores are free from the invader, and thanks to the British Navy are likely to stay so. While the Commonwealth is pro secuting its share of the War vigor ously, those who are staying at home should see that the greatest production is achieved from the soil and from natural resources, also that their effort to provide their share of the War finances never for a moment slackens. War Savings Certificates are available...
The Limit of Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
The Limit of Economy. Among the Japanes., economy Is held to ble a high virtue. Two old misers of Tokio were one day discuss ing ways and means of saving. "I manage to make a fan last about 20 years," said one. "and this is my system: I don't wasteu:ly open the whole fan and wave it carelessly. I open only one section at a time. That is good for about a year. Then I open the next, and so on until the fan is eventually used up." "Twenty years for a good fan!" ex claimed the other. "What sinful ex travagance! In my family we use a tan for two or three generations, and this is how we do it: We open the whole fan, but we don't wear It out by waving it Oh, no! We hold it still, like this, under our nose, and wave our face!" How is it that a young man and a girl will sit for hours together in the parlor without saying a word, and then, when it's time for him to go home, stand an hour talking in the hall? _____
That Did It. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
That DId It. His aunt was rich and elderly. She had called, unexpectedly, when he was out, and his wile was trying to enter tain her by such methods as she thought to be best conducive to their future welfare. The old lady had recently added a gramophone to her establishment, and when she heard that early that morn ing her loving nephew had made for her a record of her favorite cornet solo, she was delighted. "How nice of him!" she said. "Can I hear it?" "Well," said her niece, "we haven't tried it yet, but still, I'll put it on." It was a pronounced success, and the old lady was charmed. But her feelings changed when, after the solo was finished, the instrument brought out with fatal clearness: "Phew! If that's not good for an extra hundred in the old girl's will, I'm a Dutchman!"
Hit the Mark. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917
Hit the Mark. The pretty school-teacher had ask ed her class for thi best original defi nition of "wife," and the boy in the corner promptly responded, "A rib." She looked at him reproachfully, and nodded to the boy with dreamy eyes who semed anxious to say something. "Mar.'s guiding star and guardian angel!'" he said, in response to the nod. "A helpmeet!" put in a little flaxen-haired girl. "One who soothes man in adversity," suggested a de mure little girl. "And spends his money when he's flush," added the In corrigible boy in the corner. There was a lull, and the pretty, dark-haired girl said slowly, "A wife is the envy of spinsters." "One who makes a man hustle," was the next suggestion. "And keeps him from making a fool of himself," put in another girL "Some one for a man to find fault with when things go wrong," said a sorrowful little maiden. "Stop there," said the pretty school teacher; "that's the best definition." "Sorry we haven't got any rat-poi son left to give you, but...

In some way the tack extractor slfp ned and a rusty tack pierced his thumb. He thought nothing of it at the time; but in the night his thumb loegan to swell. The pain became ex cruciating. A physician was sent for. who lid his best to alleviate the poor man's sufferings, but without avail. Blood-poisoning set it, and the poor fellow died in great agony."

Since I went on my aig-game shooting tour in France and Gallipoli, where the gallipots come from, my mind has broadened so that my hat's split up the back and my ears stick out.
