No. 6 Post Office Place. South Melb.. 2/7/11. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD., - "Your tonic is one of the quickest nerve and brain cures known. I tried all kinds of doctors' medicines, and got no relief as I have from your tonic. I could'not stand anyone talking to me, or the noise of the town traffic. I lost appetite and weight.

On Parents. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
On Parents. A sniall boy was told to write a composition on parents. This was the result: "Parents are things which boys have to look after them. Most girls have parents, too. Parents con sist of pas and mas. Pas talk a good deal about what they are going to do. but it's mostly the mas that make you mind." The wise laundress knows that or dinary stains from fruit Juice and so on may generally be washed from table linen if the latter is placed In very hot water before any soap i: used, and allowed to remain there for five or ten minutes. If these spots are stubborn, salts of lemon or spirits of ammonia will probably remove them. In all cases the soiled linen should be rinsed thoroughly before being treated with soap. To discover whether coffee is pur: sprinkle a few grains on the surfacr of a tumblerful of water. If nure they will float, but if adulterated they will sink to the bottom.
The Dear Departed. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
The Dear Departed. A book that is literally crammed full of good stories is "In Slums and Society," by the Hon. and Rev. Canon Adderley. Possibly, though, some of the anecdotes, if told by a mere lay man, might be deemed to be lacking In reverence. As, for example, the one about Eliza, who held communications with her departed husband thus: "Are you 'appy, 'Enery?" "Very 'appy, Eliza." "'Appier than you were on earth, 'Enery?" "Far 'appfer, Eliza." "Then you must be in 'eaven, 'En ery?" "No, Eliza!"
DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
DECEIVED. I bought some glasses, once you see Dainty and bright and small; lie called them "gold," but I was sold. They were only brass after all. I had a friend, but all, he changed, And friendship's tie was broken, A thoughtless word was overheard. That jealous lips had spoken. I had a hope of fortune bright, That cheered me with its glitter. Ah, it was vain, and In disdain It left my soul-life bitter. Ambition lured with tempting smile To plaudits all enchanting; But prospects fair proved but a snare, Devotion's soul was wanting. Friendship, ambition, hope and gold Hold naught that lives forever; I seek above that changeless love That crowns life's true endeavor. -R. Hare. Cooranbong, N.S.V.

The Heart of Daphne By LADY TROUBRIDGE, Author of "The Cheat," "The Soul of "Honor," "Love, the Locksmith," "The Girl with the Blue Eyes," etc. P'ublished by Special Arrangement. Copyright. CHAPTER VII. Daphhe's eyes were riveted on Lord Barnstaple, for much as his face and general bearing repelled her, there was something about it that struck her with a fearful fascination. It was drawn, sallow, sneering, and on it was a look of blank hopelessness, crossed with another expression that she could hardly define, but that frighten ied her. Yes; now she knew what it was-it was the look of an animal about to spring, or of a man with pas sions so roused that the leash that held them in check was inadequate. lie looked neither to the right nor to the left, but every now and then when he raised his eyes from the cards they fixed themselves on the man opposite him. Daphne's own eyes strayed with his to the one he was watching, and she saw a stout, pale-faced young man, who was foppishly dres...
THE WAY OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
THE WAY OF THE WORLD. An "At Home" was in full swing. and the two cronies tucked away in a cosy corner were discussing the oth? er guests. "I hear Dr. Spekewell has received a call to a large city church at a. greatly increased salary." "Of course he will accept ?" "Well, he announced he would re tire to his study and pray over the matter. Mrs. Spekewell and the Spekewell girls say if he doesn't ac cept they will never again have any faith in the efficacy of prayer." Travelling Lecturer for Society (to the remaining listener) : "I should thank you, sir, for so attentively hearing me to the end of a rather too long speech !" Local Member of Society : "Not at all, sir. I'm the second speaker." The Marketer: "Aren't you wast ing a good deal of that steak la trimming it ?" The lBhtcher: "No, ya'an. I weighed it flrst."
WHICH FOOT WALKS FASTER? [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
WHICH FOOT WALKS FASTER" You may think this is a very silly question to ask, but it isn't. If .you will take a pavement that is clear. and walk briskly in the centre, you will find, before you have gone fifty yards, that you have veered very much to one side. You must not make any effort. of course, to keep in the centre; but it you will think of something, and en deavor to walk naturally, you will not be able to keep a correct line. II you lose yourself on an expanse of bleak moorland, and walk on, you will describe a complete circle. The explanation of this lies in the propensity of one foot to walk faster than the other, or take a longer stride than the other, causing you to walk to one side. To make assurance doubly sure, try placing two sticks about 8ft. apart, then stand off about 60ft., blindfold yourself, and endeavor to walk be tween them. It is almost impossible.
Is Enthusiasm Dead? [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
Is Enthusiasm Dead? American newspapers are publish ing paragraphs and pictures of the enthusiasm with which the eligible:; of the United States are answering to the call of duty now that the charm pion note-writer. President Woodrow Wilson. has delinitely cast in his lot with thle Allies. One of these pictures shows long lines of eager volunteers marching out of a New York armory fully equipped, and a (ootnote says "If need be, millions more such can be sent across the water to teach the Huns their lesson." These are brave words, and 18 months or se ago Aus tralians were saying (and believing) the same thing. W? could not, of course, like Americans talk of mil lions, but the word thousands came trippingly from our tongues, and, what was more, results justified the boast. Now, however, though we find declarations of loyalty and sense of duty as plentiful as ever on the part of public speakers, they are not fol lowed up by enlistments. Just at present the people of Australia have bef...
Neatly Countered. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
Neatly Countered. A Parisian Journalist recently wrote a rather unfavorable criticism of the performance of a well-known actress. The later was keenly-wound ed, and watched for a chance to avenge herself. She was one evening at the Variltes, with a young aristo crat for an escort, when she espied the critic. She had a package with her which she requested her friend to deliver in person. The dandy rose and, taking the package, walked over to where the Journalist was sitting with a party, and presented it to him, saying: ".Mademoiselle, who admires your talent, has requested me to present you with this as a souvenir from her." The critic took It and opened it be fore his friends, who had heard the dandy's little speech. It contained about a dozen goose-quills, and sinles and suppressed faughter went around. But the critic was equal to the oc casion. "Ah, my dear sir," said he to the messenger, "please give my best thanks to the young lady for these pretty feathers. I was aware of the ...

A FATAL REQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
A FATAL REQUEST. Everybody laughed at the new re cruit. If there was a wrong way. of doing a thing, the new recruit found it, and did it with'such a lovely air of trusting innocence that the officers and N.C.O.'s didn't know whether to laugh or tear their hair. "Where's the new recruit gone to now ?" yelled the sergeant. "Don't know, sir," replied a pri vate. "I heard him asking for some gun-cotton to saw a button on his tunic, and I haven't seen him since!"
NO NEED TO WORK FOR THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
NO NEED TO WORK FOR THEM. The youth was a thorn in the flesh of his successful father, who was " in clined to blame his wife for the lad's very evident lack of backbone and ap plication. He certainly didn't take after the paternal side of the house." "You should study harder and try to take a degree.' the mother expos tulated wearily. "Your father is dis appointed in you." "Waste of time, mother dear," said the youth, yawning. "When the Go vernor dies and I inherit his mil lions, I'll endow a university, and they'll give me more idegrees than I'll know what to do with."
THE FOOD HOG. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
THE" FOOD HOG. Old Fatwaste was a food hog. He went from shop to shop . buying pounds of this and packets of that, and stored these ill-gotten gains in his larder "for a rainy day." It was a Saturday night, and a neighbour met Fatwaste emerging from a balK er's shop loaded with bread to the eyebrows. The neighbour wanted to know what the mountain of bread was for. "Oh," said Fatwaste in a whisper, "haven't you heard that new bread mustn't be sold after to-day. I am just getting a stock of it in."
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 3 August 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A little lemon juice added to the water in which rice is boiled is said to increase the whiteness and separ ate the grains of the rice. Dressmakers who have difficulty in pressing curbed seams, will find a roll ing pin a good pressing board, if a clean cloth be wrapped around it. Cayenne pepper poured into cracks will drive away ants. Hands that have been in hot soda water and become shrunken and soft will become smooth and natural ag ain if rubbed with ordinary kitchen salt. When peeling onions, begin at the root end and peel upwards, and the onions will scarcely affect the eyes at all. Kerosene greatly facilitates the cleaning of silver. Wet a flannel cloth in the oil, dip in dry whiting, and thoroughly rub the plate or silver ware ; then wash well in warm soap suds, wipe dry, and polish with a piece of chamois. If when drying curtains they are hung double over the line, they will not stretch at all, as is so often the case when hung up by the edge. If a cake rise...

THE TIFF. "It is the first time you have re pulsed me, Angelin., and it shall be the last," said Edwin, as he rose haughtily and moved towards the door. "Stay !" she cried piteously, her breath catching in a choking sob. "We must not part in anger. I-can explain. Oh, Edwin, listen !" "Well," he replied, a little'mollif ed. "Explain !"
