SPEECHES FROM THE THRONE. HUMOURS OF ROYAL ORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917

SPEECHES FROM THE THRONE. ~-Y ------ HUIMOURS OF ROYAL ORATIONS. With the composition of the Speech from the Throne at the opening of Parliament, His Majesty the King has little or nothing to do. It is really the speech- of the Cabinet-a state ment of the policy of the Prime Min ister and his colleagues. There is a tradition, not always ill founded, that "the King's Speeches" are about the worst models of "the King's English" to be found in our language. That is, perhaps, too sweeping a condemnation, but those who follow the proceedings in Parlia ment will recollect that seven years ago Mr. Balfour had occasion to cri ticise some grammatical blemishes in the Speech from the Throne. "I do not understand the sentence,' he said, "in which these changes (re-{ ferring to the Parliament Dill) are described-that amazing piece of! English which appears, in so far as it has any meaning at all, to embody two quite different policies which have no connection whatever, except that it has beer f...

A Good Argument. As he dislikes motor-cars, a coun try squire always kept good horses. Recently he bought a handsome mare, and a few days later asked his ;room what he thought of the new arrival. "She's a fine-looking animal, sir," replied the man, "but I'm afraid she's i bit touchy." "Why do y~u think so?" questioned :th squire. "She doesn't seem to take to no me, sir. She can't bear me to go into her box to groom her." "Oh, she'll settle down in a few lays," the squLre reassured him. 'Everyth'ng's strange to her, you 'now. I don't think there's much wrong with her temper." "Nor did I at first, sir," replied the groom.

War Savings. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917

War Savings. Everyone cannot fight or even per form War work, but everyone can at least help towards the winning of the War by subscribing the funds required by the Federal Government to carry on Australia's share. It is our duty to help protect Ausa traiia, and conserve her industries, and our own property. Whatever line of beisiness, trade or calling may be followed, we should at least spare some part of our-earnings to help re= tain our living. No one is asked to give-which the Australian people have readily done o various funds-but to lend only, and at such a rate of inter est, and with so many advantages as to make the loan an. attractive and safe investment. . The form of investment can take the shape of War Savings Certificates in amounts of from £1 to £1000, and application forms are available at all Banks, Savings Banks and post offices. On the other hand, stamps are issued at all branches of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and post offices at 6d and 2s 6d which when suf...

The Fruit Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917

The Fruit Industry. In the Legislative Assembly last week, Mr W. S. Keast made an appeal to the Government to help the fruit growers. After referring to the dis abilities from which the industry was suffering he said-" I want to ask the Premier if it would be possible to arrange with the Prime Minister to have three or four of the Australian ships brought back to Victoria, so that we might load them up to the deck with apples for the Eastern countries. In addition to the marketing and send ing Home of this fruit, there are other questions with regard to the ships. I think they could be brought back for cargo. I am told that it only takes three weeks to go from here to the Eastern countries. Two or three hundred thousand cases of apples could be sent away and a good price obtained for them. I have read letters in connexion with the sale of fruit in the Eastern countries, and I believe that if the matter were taken in hand by the Prime Minister and Premiers of the varicus States, we s...

Original Anzacs. APPEAL FOR RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917

Original Anzaos. APPEAL FOR RELIEF. For over 1000 days the Original Anzacs have been fighting. War worn and overtaxed these veterans fight on. They have richly deserved a spell. They have made no appeal for relief from their arduous labors, but their very abstention from complaint inten sifies the justice of their unvoiced claim for a chance of recuperation. Their achievements are the proud heri tage of coming generations. The week commencing on 27th July is to be observed as a Special Anzac Holi day Appeal. Many eligible men have personal friends among these veterans. What more fitting recognition of their deeds could there be than for friends to enlist in their place, so that the overtaxed soldiers could be in their homes by Christmas. Such an action would honor the recruit. It would create a lifelong friendship between the veteran and the man who filled his place in the ranks. Even if a fit man has no personal friend "among the Original Anzacs, he can pick out a name in the list ...
