WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914
WIT AND HUMOUR. Why is an avaricious man like one aith a short memory? Because he is always for getting. Why is it that a fishmonger is never generous? Because his business n~akes him sell-fi~sh. Eddie: "Aren't you sorry that you are an only child?" Frdldie "Oh, no; I don't min, >ut it's rough on pal" Eddie: "[owr so?" Freddio: " Well, you see, I'm getting 'oo big for him to have to take me to he clrcus, and there aren't any bonger ones in the family for him to rall back oni" The following is a translation of a public announcement which appeared recently in the principal paper of a reanl town in Alsaced:--" The Commune ,f Hirsinger -rquires a capable man 'to wind and look" after the village elock.

CORRESPONDENCE. BERWICK WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. BERWICK WA.TER SUPPLY. To the Edi cr Sr, - I have read with interest your report of the remarks of the members for the Berwick riding e a water scheme for Berwick township, which they estimate would cost about L1000, but I think that by the time they had it completed it would cost considerably more and it would be a heavy burden on the householders, there being so few and then it is only for about three months in the year that it is n, eded. If the council would supply water for the stock and general slopping the house holders would be able to manage. When there is no water avail able for stock householders have to p: ovide for them from their tanks and it is this drain upon Sthe domnestic supply that causes a shortage. As the council make a charge for grazing stock on the streets I think they should pro vise them with water. I would' suggest a scheme which I think if carried out would meet all re quirements for the. present, at a cost of a little over L100 On the cr...
