QUITE TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

QUITE TRUE. The vicar of a mining village sent a pair'of boots to the cobbler's for repairs; but Bill, who had been im bibing rather freely, felt no inclina tion for work, so the boots were not touched that day. Next morning his nerves were rather ehaay, and he longed for "a hair of the dog that bit him." Ifis own boots were rather dirty, so he thought there was no harm in putting on the parson's, whicl he accordingly did, and started off for the village pub to get a "reviver." He had not gone very far when vhom did he meet but the vicar, who said : "I sent my hoots down for re pair, William. Are they not finish ed yet ?" "Wey, mistor," answered Bill, calmly, "they're not mended yet, but they're on the road."

WASHING TREASURY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

WASHING TREASURY NOTES. Since the Treasury note seems to have come.to stay, we may look for the introduction of 'money-washing' :machines, such as are now in use in the United States. Owing to the dirty state into which it so quickly degenerated, paper money used to be automatically destroyed as it came to the United States Treasury and replaced by new bills, but this was an expensive process, and a few years ago one of the directors of that de partment finventeli a machine -for washing and ironing the notes at a rate of some 20,000 a day. A number of these machines have now been in stalled, and. have resulted in a great saving in the printing of new notes.

Tonic Needed. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

Tonic Needed. Anxious Mother: It was after nine o'clock when Clara came down to breakfast this morning, and the poor girl didn't look well at all. Her sys torn needs toning up. What do you think of iron? Father: Good idea! Anxious Mother: What kind of iron had she better take? Father: She had better take a flat iron. Two men were hotly discussing the merits of a book. Finally one of them. himself an author, said to the other: "No, John, you can't appreciate it. You never wrote a book yourself." "No," retorted John. "and I never laid an egg, but I'm a better judge of an omelet than any hen."

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

Football. On Saturday last our local foot bailers had another win, beating the Oakleigh team, which is looked upon as the strongest combination in the Association. The match was played at Pakenham, and was interesting from start to finish. The locals played one of their best games of the season and showed that their form was im proving with every game. The club is somewhat handicapped in competi tions with suburban teams, owing to the inability of players to get together for practice. However, they are doing well, and their win last Satur day gives them second place in the competition. To-morrow the locals will visit Rich mond, and as they will have a good team in the field they hope to have another win.

SETTLING HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

SETTLING HIM. In a small town between Welling ton, N.Z., and Plymouth, the women took a "conscientious objector" in hand with some originality of method. 1?e was a young man, a farmer, and engaged to be married to a daughter of a parson resident near one of the Maori settlements. A deputation of lalies waited upon the "objecter" and informed him-politely, of course that he must decide by ten o'clock that night to enlist If he did not do so the troubles of Pharaoh would not be in it. He refused to listen to the ladiles, who at once set out to the loca tion of his Intended bride. They suc ceeded in obtaining her consent to give the young farmer the go-by un less he enllted. They brought the young lady to him, and she laid down. in fine, fiat-line language, the duty he owed his Empire. "If you don't go. our affair is all off," she said. "If you enlist, I'll marry you the day you don the khaki." That fetched hIm.

WHEN HENS LAY BIGGEST EGGS: AND WHY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

WHEN HENS LAY BIGGEST EGGS: AND WHY. Eggs laid by abnormal hens dur ing some egg-laying contests under authoritative control, have disprov ed the popular belief that small and large eggs are produced respectively at the beginning and end of a hen's laying period. It is said that during a twenty months' period the number of eggs laid by 1,280 hens was 199,037. The hens that laid small or large eggs, or both, have been properly recorded and "credited with that amount." In an extraordinary instance one hen laid fourteen small eggs at different periods. When removed from the pen, she did not have a single normal egg to her credit. Two small eggs out of a total of 103 indicates a resting period after the production of a small egg, where-. as in every other case the small egg was found in a practically continu ouls series of normal eggs. It seems obvious, therefore, that small eggs may be laid at any time. but that most small eggs are laid while hens are at the height of production. The i...

RUNNING THE GAUNTLET OF FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

RUNNING THE GAUNTLET OF FIRE. When I set out one day, some years ago, in the company of a friend, to visit the Eu-owie Opal Mines in the wild heart of New South Wales, I little dreamt that, within a few hours, I should have to go through one of the most terrible experiences of which any man has ever survived to tell the story-that I should es cape, as by a miracle, a death too horrible to contemplate. It was with a very light heart that we started on the journey which was to have such a horrible and sensa tional ending. It was a glorious day; a sky of deep, cloudless blue stretch ed above us ; the sun flooded hill and forest and valley with its golden light, and the air was exhilarating as champagne. It was a day to make the eyes sparkle and to set the pul ses beating quickly with the joy of life ;and our horses seemed to revel in it just as much as ourselves, as they tossed their heads and devoured the miles that separated us from our goal. When we arrived at Eurowie, we had the wa...

Cool Storage. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 29 June 1917

Cool Storage. The following article, taken from " The New Zealand Farmer," dealing with fruit coal storage, should be read with interest by all fruitgrowers. About two years ago a movement was started in this district to get cool stores "established, and a committee was appointed to collect information, but after going thoroughly into details it was decided to allow the matter to stand over for the time. -Much valu able data was collected by Mr Carne, secretary of the Upper Pakenham Fruitgrow4Ss' Association, and put aside for future reference. Probably in the near future the sub ject will be further considered, as many of those who are keenly in terested in the fruit industry are of opinion that coil storage is absolutely necessary. Referring to. cool storage in New Zealand, "The. Farmer" says : The Mloteuka coal store commenced operations on February 10, and is fill ing up rapidly with all classes of soft fruits, apples, and pears. The com pany is a co-operative one, consisting of...

MARS AS MATCHMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917

MARS AS BATCHMAKER. If the full story of the war could be written, no volume of it all would compare in fascination with that which would record the activities of 2Cu~ d. From cover to cover it would be crowded with stories as strange and romantic as any you will find in the whole realm of fiction, for never in all his long history has he wrought such havoc with the hearts of men and maids, or shot his arrows with such deadly and dramatic effect. Where, for example, will you find in fiction a story more charming and ro mantic than that of wbhich Miss Nina George, a pretty Scotch lassie, was the heroine a few months ago ? When the war-trumpet first called our brave boys to war, Miss Nine was barely amancipated from the school room; but already she was the ack nowledged belle of her native town, Invergordon, on the shores of the Cromarty Firth, whose glorious, red gold hair, blue eyes, exquisite com plexion and dainty little ligure, in stir.ct with grace in every movement, set many a ...
