FROM PRESS TO PUBLIC. WHAT A PRINTER'S WAREHOUSEMAN HAS TO KNOW—AND WHAT HE HAS TO DO. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 20 July 1917

FROM PRESS TO PUBLIC. WHAT A PRINTER'S WAREHOUSE MAN HAS TO KNOW-AND WHAT HE HAS TO DO. The warehouse in a printing estab lishment is the place where the fin ishing touches are given to the prin ter's work, and is not merely a pack ing and despatching department. A warehouseman here has to be some thing of a stationer, bookbinder, and publisher as well. The keeping and checking of stock to supply normal and abnormal de mands from the machine department also needs the attention of thought ful men, as well as the strength for ihard and heavy labour. In every re spect the warehouse is an indispen sable part in the working of a print ing establishment. The duties of a printer's warehouse man vary according to the particular work done by the firm-if it be job hbing.?hock work, or daily and weekly papers. In the first case he will deal with much fancy and small work, from visiting-cards, depinty program mes, trade stationery, labels and leaflets, and all the varied small jobs required by ...

WONDERS OF THE COCOANUT. SEED FRUIT THAT FEEDS ON ITSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 20 July 1917

WOiNDERS OF THE COCOANUT. SEED FRUIT THAT FEEDS ON ITSELF. Cocoanuts a re seerls, a;nd they ger minate lilts other seed:s, but the cocoa nut haLs a most extraor'anary provi sion inside for the sustenance of the young plant in the arid regions to which it is native, in the weeks or months that may elapse before its roots car. reach-moisture. When we get a cocoanut we find it to consist of a thick fibrous rind, a hard brittle shell, lined with crisp, white oily meat, inside of which is a quantity of watery liquid called the milk. At the stalk end of the nut are three "eyes," one of which is :a hole through the shell, closed by :a brown coating over the white meat. If we open the shell and ezamine the meat carefully, we shall find just un derneath this "eye" a bit of the nut about the size of a mustard seed im bedded in the meat but entirely separ ate from it. This is the embryo, from which the future tree will grow, All the rest of the nut is merely for the protection and feeding of t...

MUSIC ENCOURAGES WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 20 July 1917

MiUSIC ENCOURAGES WORK. An interesting development in con nection with the loud-speaking tele phone is its use for distributing music during working hours in factories. warehouses, and other institutions w:here men are engaged in work of a monotonous character. It has long been known that work requiring mechanical skill without the necessity of mental concentration can be promoted by supplying the workers with some kind of pleasant amuse ment that will not take the attention from the work, and the Ioud-speak ing telephone appears to make this possible on a scale not thought of heretofore. In the cigar factories of Tampa, Florida. the reading of hooks and periodicals to the workers dur ing working hours has long been an established custom. and in many of the factories expert readers are em ployed for this purpose. The value of diversion of this kind in promoting work is also recognised in some na vies. where the practice is to have the hand play while ships are. coaled. Amusement of ...

GREATEST TAX-MASTER TO-DAY. MIDDLEMEN TOLLS MUST GO! [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 20 July 1917

GREATEST TAX-MRASTER TO-DAY. 0 MIDDLEMEN TOLLS MIU'ST GO ! The story with, which the public has just become conversant, about the string of middlemen between the potato and the consumer, is the story of many every day commodities. It indicates the desirability of eliminat ing some of these expenasive middle men who intervene in our social transactions. Our system of distri buting foods is a g-owing scandal, and a few further facts will tend to demonstrate it. The farmer's profits may be large: but for all their largeness, he is paid but a trifle compared with what the consumer expends. Potatoes are not the, only vegetable exploited. Last year we came across one large farm which would have been glad to get a fair figure for green-stuffs-the middle men were inexorable ! Milk. eggs, beef, pork, mutton, fruits, wheat and oats must all yieli their tribute to the Caesars of Covent Garden and other monarchs of the markets. The farmer has investigated the evil for himself, but it is the pub...

War Savings.. Now that the War Savings have taken the form of War Savings Stamps, as well as Certificates, it is possible for everyone-of even the most limited means-to participate and help in the huge task of financing the W3ar, or at least Australia's share in it. SThese Stamps are available at all branches of the Commonwealth Ban: of Anstralia, as well as all Post Offices, at 6d and 2s Gd each, as all booklets are supplied free in which to affix them, purchasers are enabled to take care of them in a compact form until such time as they reach the sum of 17s 6d when they will be readily exchanged for a £1 War Savings Certificate. While the Savings Groups which have been, and are being, established generally, may find it more suitable to collect regular subscriptions with which to buy certificates, the stamps are an undoubted advantage to small individual subscribers. Parents cannot do better than cn courage their children to adopt this form of helping. tlhey can be induced to save ...

To the Editor. Sir,-It is most satisfactory to note the excellent reports of district happen ings which appear in your valuable paper. Pakenham is justly proud of having a weekly which gives such satisfaction. In my opinion, it greatly helps the advancement of a township to have a record of what takes place in other parts of the district. South Pakenham, for instance, had a splen did reporter about two or three years ago, but the gentleman had to abandon his reports of concerts as there was no paper in the district. However, now that we have your paper we can look for pleasing reports. Wishing the'paper success-Yours, etc, ADVANCE PAKENHAM. July 16th.

Correspondence. To the Editor. Sir, - Now that you have sent the "Gazette" forth a silent mes senger from Press to People, I -think it is our duty to make an effort to see that your little weekly meets with the success that your enterprise de serves. You have supplied us with one of our essential needs, and the fault is ours if we neglect to avail ourselves of the opportunity you have placed within our reach, namely, the advancement of the district's interests. Being one interested in the Man on the Land, I am going to give my version of what appeals to me as being a serious drawback to the farming com munity of Gippsland-that is, the gett ing of that part of our produce, such as peas, beans and other vegetables, on to the early Melbourne market, or to otherwise dispose of it to our ad vantage. I have heard of instances where growers living within easy dis tance of Town and having their own conveyances have (for example) re ceived as much as 14s per hundred for their peas, and when ...

Toomuc Valley Orchard. Writing in last month's issue of the " New Zealand Farmer" on the sub ject of " Fruitgrowing in Victoria," Mr J. H. Thorp refers to a visit paid by him to the Toomuc Valley Orchard. After giving his impressions of the Doncaster district, he says: "On the following day I visited Pakenham, about 35 miles by rail from Melbourne, beinR desirous of seeing the large orchard owned by the Toomuc Valley Proprietary Orchard Company, about which I have heard and read so much. The Department again placed the services of their orchard supervisor for the Gippsland district at my dis posal, and he spared no pains to make my trip a pleasant one. The orchards here lie mostly in thickly wooded valleys, and apples and pears are the chief production. Toomue Valley orchard lies about nine miles from the railway, and is over 200 acres in ex tent. The Yates variety is grown very extensively here. The trees, which were very large, totalled 11,000. Yatei is a very payable variety in V...
