Correspondence. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
Correspondence. To the Editor. Sir,-When " Struggling Up " un folded his tale of woe in your issue of Friday last, he omitted a very import ant part of the vegetable growers sad story. The perusal of this letter might give an altogether wrong im pression, as one might easily deduce from it that those associated in the Gippsland Co-operative Coy. were the progressives, and that the fellow in the rut was not a shareholder in the Company at all. Such, however, is not the case, as many who depend solely on vegetable growing for a liveli hood are shareholders and have been since the company's inception. Gener ally they sell their potatoes- through the GippsIand, but up to the present I don't think the company have made any arrangements in regard to the produce that "Struggling Up " speaks - of, and, in any case, whether we have representation of our own or not (in good seasons) the supply of vegetables is greater than the demand, and unless we can find some means of disposing of the surp...

I know you'll enjoy reading them ever so much more than you dih! mine."
THE COO-EE CONTINGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
THE COO-EE CONTINGENT. So much war literature has been produced by more or less unreliable stay-at-home patriots that the ordin ary reader is chary of tackling books or articles that profess to discribe soldier life at the iront In The Coo-ee LContingent one, however, has a de scription at first hand of what the author describes as "Bill Jim as fight er, good chum and lover," in'a series of sketches that leave no doubt or cheir absolute genuineness. The au thor with unnecessary modesty con ceals his identity, beyond disclosing the fact that he was an Australian ollicer trained at Broadmeadows and sailing from Port Melbourne, but the work he has done in an unobtrusive manner will live long after the war is over.'

"Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTS! [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
"Modern Fig-Leaves." BOOTSI By Alfred Lester. Boots are undoubtedly useful, but I should hardly describe them as ornamental. They look rather well when perched at unwearable angles on the plate-glass shelves of show windows; but in a homely row in the bedroom, or in the bathroom, or wherever you happen to keep them. they are not at all an inspiring sight. I know, because I went and had a look at my own modest collection Just now with a view to gaining a few in spirations on the subject of footwear. But after a gloomy interval I stole away and shut the door with the un happy conviction that I shall have to take to wearing shoes. There they stood, with their toes turned in and their tongues hanging out, the silliest-lnoking lot of creatures in the world. " ?.oy hadn't an idea between theml And to think that I've carried those boots about with me all over the country, permitting them to share my private Joys and sorrows, keeping them carefully in a good state of repair, and securing fo...

CHAPTER VI. Daphne had plenty of pluck. " She had Jbeen noted, for it. even as quite a little thing. And ther was prac tically nothing that a girl could do. that she had' not dared to do in the old days whenever she got a chance, from mounting her friends' horses, to negotiating a dangerous bit of ski ing in Switzerland. Of moral cour age, too, she had more than her share, and yet as Raffe edged himself betm'een her and the. door, with an evident interition of pret-enting her leaving the room, a real tamult of terror came over her, such as she had never felt .before in the whole of her existence;' and her nerve being gone, she did not know? quite what to do, and so edged awkwardly back .to the very door itself, putting her hand forward blindly, feeling for the knob. Instead of it reaching the h...

LOVING TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
LOVING TOO LATE. The best, the fairest, most beloved Lfe where but tombstones tell their name, Forgotten by the hurrying crowd. With none to tell of whence they came. Love may have marked their resting place, By kindly word and tear-stained eye, But love itself is dead, and now The slab alone tell where they lie. Through dim millenniums thus we trace, Age after age the story must re peat- To-day the loved pass from our side, To-morrow, calls us to their feet. Then what has time whereof to boastT And what has man to call his own? His vigil ends before the night, And darkness finds him all alone. Great Father, teach us how to love, The loved, responsive, by our side To touch with kindly hand while still, The loving and the loved abide. -R. Hare. Cooranbong, N.S.W.
Voluntary Island. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
Voluntary Island. Australians are well accustomed to the knowledge that they are the resi dents of an island, continent though it be. It came, however, with some thing of novelty, when they were told by the plain-spoken Mr. Hughes the other day that we in Australia are liv ing on an "island of voluntaryism sur rounded by a sea of conscription." Very little reflection is necessary to show that this is so, and this being ad mitted, it is equally clear that no effort should be spared to make the record of this island of voluntaryism at least equal to that of the conscript countries with whom it is in friendly competition. As to the needs -of the Australian divisions who are fighting the nation's battles on the other side of the world, there can be no second thought, and all- that the eligibles in Australia, calculated by the Govern ment authorities at 145,000 single men and 280,000 married men, have to de cide is when they will step forward and offer to do their share. Many glowing pic...
COULDN'T BE BOTHERED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
COULDN'T BE BOTHERED. Mike had seen nearly every clock in the shop, but had discarded all. of them as not being good econgh for his purpose. The weary shopman had exhausted his whole stock except a few cuckoo clocks, so he brought these forward as a last resource, and vowed he would do his best to sell one or know the reason why. "Do the clocks strike the hours ?" asked Mike. "I'll show you what they do," said the shopman. And he set the hands of one to a few minutes to twelve. When the little door flew open and the cuckoo thrust his head out, cuc kooing away for dear life, Mike was thunderstruck. But when the bird disappeared he looked glum, and pont dered in gloomy thought for a mo ment. "Well, how do you like that ?" ask ed the shopman. "That's a staggerer for you, isn't it ?" "Faith and begorra, I should think it is," declared Mike. "It's trouble enough to remember to wind it, with out having to think of feeding the bird."
EVER SO MUCH MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 27 July 1917
EVER SO MUCH MORE. When he reached the age of twenty one. Bertie Brainless shook the dust of his native village from his feet and travelled. At the end of twelve months he came home determined to swank in the village. He was invited to bun fights and high teas, and bask ed in the flattery and respectful at tention he received from the country folk. At one house he chanced to re fer to "a stay in Holland and the Netherlands." "Beg pardon," said one of the guests, "but are not the terms 'HA1 land' and 'the Netherlands' synony mous ?"

WHAT HE'D ACQUIRED. The younger son, not being over bright, and somewhat inclined to laziness, was packed off to the colo nies to "make good." He wrote irre gularly, and told his people very lit tle about himself. Years passed, and the elder brother, who had prospered, decided to pay the exile a visit. He found him unshaven and very much changed in habits and speech. "Well, Jim, boy," said the elder brother, "you don't seem to have prospered much in all these years." "Prospered ?" cried Jim. "I have prospered. Why, when I came out here I had nothing-nothing. And now, just look at me. I got nine dawgs !"
