MILCH GOATS BETTER THAN COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
MILCH GOATS BETTER THAN COWS. The milch goat is superior to the cow in many ways. They can live on about one-eighth of what it takes to feed a covw, and yield about half as much milk. They can live and thrive in the mo.t barren and Innac cecsible places, and are not subject to the ailments and diseases of the bovine animal. On the Continent the milk of goata Is held in the highest esteem as a diet for children, especi ally those that are sickly. It has given them health and vigor when medical treatment has often failed. The explanation of this salutary ef feet is said to be that goat's milk in more digestible than that of eows It. contains from 25 to 30 per cent more butter fat than- cow's milk, and is greatly relished by children when they become accustomed to it. Goats are also freer from tuberculosis.

WHERE IT IS COLD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
WHERE IT IS "COLD. On the hottest day In summer a flying man may be in the Arctic re fgions in ten minutes by mounting to a height of 10,000ft., just as the climb or'may pass through all the shades of temperature by climbing Kilima NJaro, the giant peak which rlses above the snow-line from the Equator. He'commences with the tropical Jun gle and ends amid eternal snow. The fact is that the temperature is invariably low at l0,000ft. and over, whether at the tropics or the poles, and it is quite likely to be lowest at the Equator. Airmen well know the intense cold of those upper regions, 'nd they need the rig-out of a Shac kleton if they would mount to 20,000 t. above the earth's surface. In fact, there is little variation of tempera ture in these upper reaches of the atmosphere. It is much the same In ·ummer as winter, except for the dif fcrence which a high wind makes. Even in the depth of a hot summer he alrman will encounter forty do -rees of frost at 10,000ft., and at twite ,bIt a...
AT LAST REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
AT LAST REVENGE. A physician once had a grave dug for a patient supposed to be dying, who afterwards recovered, and over this error of juldgment the doctor was joked for many years. Once he attended, in consultation with three confreres, another patient. This patient really died. After the death, as the physici?ana discussed the case together, one of them said: "Since qunick burial is nrcessary, we might inter the body temporarily, I understrand our brother has a- va cant grave on hand." . The doctor smiled. "Yee," he said, "I believe I im the only ~physician prse.at whou grEeo 5e 8Qt all fill S.-.. .. r90.
HIS CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
11HS1 CREED. An Episcopal rector, travelling 'in a country district, met a native. also, by his own profession, an Episcopa lian. "Who confirmed you ?" asked the rector. "Nobody. What's that ?'' -"But didn't you tell m' you were an Episcopalian ?" "Oh, yes," fsaid the old man.; "and I'll tell you hobo- it is. Last spring I went to the city on a visit. While I was there I went to church, and I heard em say they had left undone them things they'd ought to have done, and done them things they hadn't ought to have done, an' I said to myself, 'That's just my tix, too.' I found out that was an Episcopal church, and so I've been an Episco pal e?ver since." "It's very strange," reflected the milkman, "the milk is genuine, so is the water, but as soon as you mix em they charge you with adultera tion !"
Federal Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
Federal Parliament. (From the Gallery.) "It smacks of a revolution in ideals," said my colleague, who has been with me in the Gallery of the Common wealth Parliament since the first days of the Federation. We were watching the new and old members taking their seats, and marking the new members for future work. The state of the House of Representatives did smack of a revolution in ideals, and it was hard to believe it was only a few months since the Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, was helpless before a doubt ing following and a bitterly aggres sive Opposition. What had happened at the elections could be gathered from the way the new members grouped themselves, and the type of men they were. The Prime Minister no longer sat in the centre of a Treasury bench filled by Ministers, who, if they had found themselves, had certainly not found one another. The election campaign had acted as a precipitant. Ministers had found one another,- and the dis tinction of Liberals and National Labor had di...

"Then Alaric Bcarmain----' With the discovery that the sap phires were missing, and the subse quent finding of the body in the Home Wood, it had seemed to Ciely that the situation had become abso lutely hopeless. Mrs. Bowman's be lief in her in spite of the circumstan tial evidence, had given her at first a crumb of comfort. But the effect had been only momentary. Stephen declined to see her, to give her any opportunity of explanation or con fession. and it seemed to Cfcely that the 'judgment of the world would scarcely be more merciful to her than that of her own husband. But with the realisation of the desperate na ture of the situation there had fallen up...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. A DELICATE HINT. The day was wet. The car was crowded. Even the platform behind waa crowded with men banging on to one another, and these concealed the gate that protected passengers from care coming on the other line. A lady came to the door of the car, *ind, as it stoppeil, started towards the gate, which was hidden from her by the men standing before it. "Other side, please, lady," said the conductor. He was haughtily ignored. The lady took another step towards the gate. S"Yon must get off the other side," said the conductor. "I wish to get off on this side," came the answer in tones that con gealed the official into momentary silence. Before he could explain or expostulate one of the men on the platform came to his assistance. " 'Stand to one side, gentlemen,' he remarked quietf~y. "The lady wishes to climb over the gate."

"Oh, yes, I like drawing," was the reply. "I'm sure you do," pursued the teacher, thinking hie had at last found an intelligent student. "Which kind of work do you prefer-sketching, practical drawing, or what ?" "'Well, sir," said the student, after a moment's reflection. "I like draw ing my wages bhet !"

THE PATIENT LOVER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 6 July 1917
THE PATIENT LOVER. The cotree of true love was sum marily deflected from its long-desired end in the case of the patient lover of Williamson, West Virginia. Aleck Chernoff, a rugged mountaineer, en tered the Courthouse at Williamson one day recently, and asked for "the feller that fxes up the marriage pa pers." He was directed to the pro per quarter, and on meeting the o[ icial he said : "Here's a licence I done'got in this here Court twenty-four years ago, and I don't seem to have nary a chance to ever use it, so I reckoned it best to bring it back and get the money I paid you-uns for it. "You see," he explained, "me and Euphemia alwuz meant to get mar ried, but she was so consa?ned con trary-like that she was never ready to have the parson tie the knot when I was. I lowed that I could worry along a while with Euphemia in her tantrums; bhut after twenty-four years I got tired, and told her that either we-unms would get married or we wouldn't. Euphemia 'lowed we wouldn't, so I calke...

"THE WILL FOR THE DEED." In quavering tones the dying man dictated to his lawyer his last will and testament. "To each and every clerk who has been in my employ ten years, £1000." "But, my dear sir," gasped the lawyer, "think of your sons and daughters ! And your fortune is not colossal !" "That's all right !" murmured the sick man. "People have always said that I was close and hard. I want them to think well of me when I am gone. It will look so well in the pa Pers, and there isn't a clerk in my place, by the way, who has been with me ten months !"

Standing Alone. A quiet, patient little man had been pushed about and trodden on by the other passengers on a crowded tramcar. For a long time he suffer ed in silence.
