AW'FLY CONSIDERATE ! [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
AW'FLY CONSIDERATE ! "Stop !" The brakes of the motor were nuddenly applied, and a pande monium of whirling wheels ensued, and Reginald Drivard eame face to face with Cornstahle TrapDum, vwho had been hiding in the hedge. "Excuse me, sir," said the p?ortly policeman, taking out his note-book and pencil, "but you exceeded the e?ced limit by three miles over a measured piece of road." "I have done nothing of the kind," replied Drivard. "And lbeIdLes-" "Well, if you don't believe me, I'll call the m~rgeant, bein' as it was 'im as took the time. He'i in the pigsty yonder." "Don't trouble to do that," was the prompt reply. "I would sooner pay tilty timeo than disturb the ser oant at his meals."
A CHEERING THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
A CHEERING THOUGHT. -4------ Phblosophy in the face of loss is not uncommon; but Daniel Cummins had it uncommonly strong. Daniel lived on a little farm in the Ozarks. By direct route it was six miles to the country town. But long, long ago an impassable gully had been washed across the road. To go round was three miles out of the way but Daniel always went round. One day a perniciously active and ef?cient stranger happened to bevis iting in the neighbourhood, and ob served Daniel's long drive out of the way. "See here," said the stranger, "how long have you been going that way to town?" Daniel considered a moment, trying to recall the year of the big freshet. "Twenty years come next March," he said. The efficient stranger figured a mo ment on the bark of an envelope. "I suppose you go to town on an average twice a week ?" "Sometimes oftener, and sometimes not quite so often," replied Daniel. "Well, say you lose at least two hours every week, 205 hours a year 4160 hours in twenty yea...
MEAT CAUSES BAD TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
MEAT CAUSES BAD TEMIPER. Do you know that meat-eating is said to be responsible for bad tem per? And, by way of proof, atten t?ilon is drawn to BLritishers who have the reputation of being the heaviest meat-eaters, and are credited with possessing the most fery tempers. Our French Allies eat very little meat. They like fruit, vegetables, salads, a little fish, and a little chic ken. The average Englishman eats more meat in a day than a French man does in a week. The consequence is that the French are the most polite and good-tempereel of nations. But the Japanese prove the conten tion best. The majority of the Ja panese people live on rice, fruit, a~weetment. and fish. Their temper ance and delicacy at table give them the best dispositions in the world. On the streets of Japan there is never any fighting or quarrelling. Toler ance, courtesy, high-bred and cere monions manners are as prevalent in Japan as grumbling is in this coun try. The philosophy of this is that meat is a stimula...
HEART MASSAGE. STOPPED BEATING FOR THIRTEEN MINUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
HEART MASSAGE. STOPPED BBATING FOR THIR TEEN MIINUTES. The story of how Albert Davies, aged six, had his heart's action re stored by massage after thirteen min utes' cessation is related in the pri rately-circulated "'Gazette" issued to the staff of Guy's hospital. After the boy's tonsils had been removed he stopped breathing. Other means failing to restore res piration, which had ceased for twelve minutes, an incision was made to en able the surgeon to massage the heart. After about twenty squeezes the heart was suddenly felt to be beating, and respiration was re-es tablished, though at first the pulse was not perceptible, and the boy's condition remained extremely feeble. He was unconscious for two days. On ly by unremitting care was he brought round gradually to perfect health. The medical statement on the case concludes: "There have been several successful cases recorded of heart massage, but this case is perhaps uri que in that recovery toob place after so long a time of cessat...
A SWINDLER OF MILLIONS THE EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF HENRI ROCHETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
A SWINDLER OF MILLIOS THE EXTRAORDINARY CAREER OF HENRI ROCHETTE. The recent arrest and sobsequent imprisonment of Henri Ronhetto, the notorious swindlor of France. who was found fighting for his country as a common "polIu." recalls one of the most extraordinary stories of nmo dern times. Less than twenty years ago a youngster named, Rochette was earn ing a paltry living as a waiter at a cheap hotel in the .French provinces. In this capacity he did not meet with much success, for his tips were not suff~cient to keep him dressed decent ly. - But suddenly the tables turned, for this poor provincial waiter had in herited £200. With this he went to Paris to achieve renown. HIS WONDERFUL PERSONALITY. Rochette was of striking appear ance. He was erect like a young poplar, and as lithe. His eyes shone with a fierce intentness, and he had open-lipped, constant smile. Over a well-shaped mouth projected the sharp, well-cut nose, a trifle too much like a beak. He was not exactly a handsome you...

SBEFORE AND AFTER. Spring cleaning was in progress, and male labour was hard to find. The widow asked her "char-lady" if she would bring her husband along one day to assist in moving her heavy furniture. The man came, and the widow was astonished to see how battered his face looked. "Has your poor husband had Ian accident ?" asked the widow. "Oh, no, mum ; that's what 'appen ed when we 'ad a few words not long agno." "Dnear me, Mrsa. Scrubbs ! Did you do that ? What a shame ! He seems such a nice, quiet man, too i" The charwoman pursed her lips. '"He Is now, mum !" she said meaningly.
Nar Nar Goon. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
S Nar Nar Goon. On Saturday night a concert was given by the scholars of the State school, assisted by local artists, The night was fine and the hall was more crowded than has ever been seen be fore.

Besides the items given by the children, all of which were much appreciated, and some of which were encored, the following assisted: -MJr and Mrs Donald (duets and solos), Mlisa Holcome, Mr Armour and Mr Latta. All these performers...
GOLDEN HERMITS. MILLIONAIRES WHO LIVE SPARTAN LIVES FAR FROM THE MADDING THRONG. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
GOLDEN HERMITS. MILLIONAIRES WIO LIVE SPAR TAN LIVES FAR FROM THE MAD DING THRONG. While some men of millions find their greatest pleasure in devising ways of squandering their gold, there are others who hold their riches so lightly that they turn their backs on them to lead, of their own choice, the life of the Spartan and the her mit. Such an eccentric Croesus is John Vanderbilt, a scion of one of the world's wealthiest families, who some years ago left the gilded world to which he had been born to make his lonely home in a tumbledown cottage on the summit of the Witch's Head Mountain, in Pennsylvania. Here, on his lofty eyrie, many miles removed from the nearest habitation of man, he spent his days in solitary commu nion with Nature and a hfew treasured books. THE SIMPLE LWIF. He is his own "maid of all work," doing his own cooking and cleaning and washing ; he supplies his larder with the fish he catches and the game be shoots ; grows his own vegetables and fruit, and milks his ...

OUR DOG CUTLETS. PROBLEMS IN THE FROZEN SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
OUR DOG CUTLETS. -4~-- PROBLEMS I THE FROZEN SOUTH. (By Frank Wild, of the Shactkleton Expedition, in an Interview.) I've been shipwrecked more than once. I know what it is to have a boat go down, all-standing, under me. But when the Endurance found a grave in the ice of the Weddell Sea, sixteen months after she sailed so bravely from London Port on her lonely quest 4n the far South. it seemed quite different. The Endurance was a fine vessel, and when one has lived, under such conditions as we lived, on a craft for more than a year, and known her to be true and taut. It was a positive pain to feel that she was being slow ly mangled, and that one could do no thing to save her. The ice had got a strangle hold on that boat of ours, and was just squeezing the life out of her. A SHIP'S DEATH AGONY. And, what was worse, the poor old Endurance died a lingering death, for the pressure of ice, though relentless, was for the most part slow. I re member, however, on one occasion, in a few seco...
