In a Spare Room. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917

In a Spare Roonm. By Ashley Sterne. I recently spent a night in a frIend's spare room, and I now know why it is so called. It's because it can be easily spared. Nobody else in the house wants it. it is situated at the top of live flights of stairs right under the roof, close to the Zep pelins. In summer it has the tam perature or an orchid-house; in winter that of an Alpine crevasse. The reilina , too, slopes in several different directions all at once. with the result that the casual visitor, unac qurlinted with its architectural vagar ies, repairing to ted by the light of a wan and sickly candle, belabors his head against it. and more orten than not spends the night insensible upon the floor. HIowever, the ceiling of the roo:n I occupied did not happen to) slope very awkwardly on the night I w:vas there, and I put my candleh:tick on Ih i :mat.elpiece anld had walked thence nearly Into the centro of the room before I fell flat on my hack.

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. XVII. EVERY MAN AND WOMAN'S DUTY What with politics and our ordin ary affairs of life, the volunteering campaign continues to drag. There has not been a week since it began with the new year that has achieved any burst of success, while there have been many weeks during which the results have been very poor indeed. This is an unfortunate state of af fairs for which those who are con ducting the campaign certainly can not be held responsible. In Mr. D. Mackinnon, M.LIA., the Director-Gen eral, we have a gentleman filled with enthusiasm for the cause, who has devoted his whole time and abun dant energies in an honorary capa city to the work. He is constantly moving about the (Comnmonwealth en dravoring to evoke among tihe pleo ple some of the enthusiasm which Ihe himself feels. In all the States there are General Organising Committees composed of patriotic gentlemen ".'ho are also sacriticing their whole time and ability to the one object of try ing to mak...

IDENTIFIED. It is a strict banking rule that -che ques cannot be cashed for strangers. So when the calm-looking woman laid her cheque on the counter the cashier smiled regretfully. "I'm sorry, madam," he said, "but" I do not know you," - "Oh, I think-you do !" replied the lady coolly. "I'm the red-headed vir, ago' who lives next door to you,whose 'scoundrelly little boys' are always stealing your flowers.. When you started for town this morning your wife called after you : 'Now, Henry, if you want any dinner this evening you'll have to leave .me some money - I can't keep house on sixpence a day, and-" "Here's your money, madam," said the red-faced cashier; as he pushed it,, across the counter.

WAX FOR BURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 May 1917

WAX FOR BURNS. When a French doctor, named Darthe de Sandfort. claimed to have found a cure for burns by means of the application of ambrine wax, a mixture of paraffin, resin, and amber, Ire was simply laughed at. But at the begimning of the war be was allowed fifteen beds by a doctor who believed .n his cure for the treatment of burn ed soldiers. Men were brought to him suffering from the terrible effects of the liquid fire, or inflammable tar, used by the enemy, or after having been burned ia some wrecked aeroplane. Directly the men are brought in, the burns, however had they may be, are painted over with wax, which is still liquid and is applied hot. Then a thin sheeting of wadding is laid over, and another coating of ambrine is applied, and the sufferers will sleep peacefully after the first dressing. In about a week new flesh begins to grow, the tissue becomes whole without leaving any scars. The treatment is good also for frostbite, and for wounds in which the tissue has becom...

A GALLANT JAPANESE. FOUGHT FOR BRITISH IN   FRANCE. Private Harry O'Hara, a young Ja- panese journalist, who has worn the British khaki uniform on the Wes- tern front since the early days of the war, first as a Sikh and later as a member of the Middlesex Regiment, has a record unsurpassed in gallan- try (says the "Daily Chronicle"). He has returned to England wounded for the sixth time, and the ribbon of the Military Medal on his tunic testifies to his valour. O'Hara left the Edmonton Military Hospital with six gold badges on his left sleeve, and his cure is considered one of the most wonderful amongst the 2000 patients. Broken shrapnel hit him in a score of places, and his doctor says that altogether he has   the marks of nearly 70 wounds. When war broke out O'Hara was in India. "I felt impelled to enlist," he said, "and I joined the Sikhs. I was really taken for an Indian. We came out in August, and went into the fir- ing line in September." &nbsp...

D]STR!I" REQUIREMENTS. To the Editor. Sir, - All hail your paper! May it attain the success it deserves. The district needs something to galvanise a number of the residents into activity and rouse them from the sleepiness of their avocations. There is plenty of scope for you to bring before the community the advantages of a country life and especially when the environ ments are such as 'the district is possessed of. With the climate and the soil, and with the bountiful rain fall every year, our district is one that stands out in bold relief in seasons of drought in the northern areas. There are many things that might be advocated for the general improve ment of the town and district, notably the scheme of our much-respected member (Mr Keast) to settle sonime hundreds of families upon the land I was much impressed with his speech at the opening of our nice little Horti cultural Show last month, and, as Mr Keact' says, there is room for 400 families within a radius of 10 miles of Pake...
