THE PEOPLE OF INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
THE PEOPLE OF INDIA. The population of India is far more diverse than is generally thought. They talk about 150 different lan guages, and are divided up into forty three distinct nationalities. There are 2378 main castes besides a large number of sub-castes. There are 200,000,000 Hindus, from which. for tunately, we can draw fighting men: 60,000.000 Mohammedans, while among the Hindus there are 50,000,000, of degraded people of no caste, whose touch, or even shadrow, is supposed to cause pollution. The girls are of all sorts, bright little things with pounds' worth of gold ornaments round their necks and arms and in their ears and noses. These are Brahman children, who must be married before they are ten. and are then kept secluded in their mothers' homes till the final mar riage ceremonies are complete, when they are passed on to the houses of their mothers-in-law. A Brahman or Hindu girl has re fined features, and in figure is what the French call petite. Their car riage is erect,...

NURSE ENDRES Bundaberg, Nth. Queensland, writ.s a remarkable letter to CLEME]TS A MAGNIFICENT BRAIN AND NERVE STRENGTHENING MEDICINE. Burbon Strt.,t, Itli ,.atrg¢Q, 3Q. 3 =e. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. lowed my profession of LADIES' hURSE, residing at Mt. Perry. Overwork brought on a TOTAL COLLAPSE OF MY NERVOUS SYSTEM. I was treated by several doctors, but grew worse and became so low and suffered so much that I despaired of ever being well again; in fact, ONE DOCTOR SAID THE END Y:AS VERY NEAR, and, indeed I only longed for the hour when I should be at peace. A friend, persisting, made me try Clements Tonic, and it proved my salva tion. Four bottles saw me up and about, and although well advanced in years, I am strong and active, and able to look after my business. That is en tirely due to Clements Tonic.

The Heart of Daphne Published by Special Arrangement. Copyright. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
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. Published by Special Arrangement. Copyright. CHAPTER VIIL No words could have been more terrible to Daphne than these. They somehow seemed to revive all the fleeting thoughts she had had about Mendham, and to present them to her as facts. In spite of his proud bearing, and of the great barrier that his position had put between them, she had always felt a kind of intui tion that between them there could have been, under other circumstances, the greatest possible sympathy. She had always been conscious of the magnetic power exercised by his eyes, and of the unspoken messages that they had sent her; and yet it was only in her dreams that she had felt sure that he somehow realised how different from those about her she was-somehow wanted to be her friend, somehow put her in a niche apart. In the day time these fancies had seemed the follies that...
A New Road. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
A New Road. At the Council meeting on Saturday last further consideration was given to the question of constructing a new road at Upper Pakenham. The matter of the road was dis cussed by the Upper Pakenham Fruit growers' Association on the previous Saturday, and the following resolu tion was sent to the Council: " That this Association strongly approves of the Council proceed ing with the construction of the proposed road, starting at the Pakenham Upper school and pro ceeding in a north-westerly direc tion to Mr Bubeck's, and joining up Toomuc Valley and West Gembrook:" Cr Martin Maid he believed the whole council was in sympathy with the resolution. The opening of the road would place the people of Upper Pakenham in touch with Toomuc Valley, and it-would prove an import ant factor in reducing the cost of fruit cases. It would be of general benefit :to tie ratepayers. It. was also re quired for developmental purposes, and would add to the productiveness of the land. At the same time...
Hard on the Doctor. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
Hard on the Doctor. A medical man humorously relates the following little experience, ad mitting that he "didn't think it par ticularly funny at the time." The conductor of a 'bus on which he had jumped happened to mention the name of one of his patients. "It's a bad Job about poor Bill X., afn't it, sir?" "Yes," returned the doctor. "Very serious case. You know him, then?" "Know him!" echoed the conductor. '"We went to school together. Poor Bill! I shall miss him!" "Oh, well, while there's life there's hope, y' know," said the doctor. "Your friend isn't dead yet." "N'o," gloomily returned the conduc tor. "But I 'eard as they'd called you in this morning. Poor BillI"
MODERATE MEALS LENGTHEN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
MODERATE MEALS LENGTHEN LIFE. With the food controller giving in structions that we are to limit our food, it is a bit hard to advise people, but, as a matter of fact, far more per sons die from over-feeding than from starvation. Especially is this the case-with persons over forty, for after that age the system becomes less able to stand the strain imposed by im proper feeding. Even the selection of the right kind of food is less import ant than the rule of eating in strict moderation. In regard to the choice of diet, however, all foods rich in earth, salts and starchy matter are to be avoided as ossifying and clog ging the tissues. As a general rule, it has been observed that-the dietaries of long-lived persons are distinguish ed by small quantities of meat aid the prominence of fruit, and that no centenarian has ever been a glutton. It should-be remembered that it is the food digested, and not the food eaten. that produces vitality, and that many people eat at last twice the quant...
DISUSE MEANS ATROPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
DISUSE MEANS ATROPHY. One of the golden rules of physio logy is that if an organ i. not usled iS begins to atrophy, or die away. If we were to live in a dark cavern we should lose the use of our eyes t! time; if we keep our arm in a sling for weeks and weeks it dies away to nothing. The particular application of this role that I wish to make is that our teeth are made of the hard est substances fit the body, the enamel, and that these teeth are meant to be used in biting hard ar ticIes of diet. Look at the dog; h2e is always gnawing bones, andl he keeps his teeth in good order by sa doing. It is a mistake to think that every mouthful a baby takes should be pulped into a papy mass. The very fact that Nature goes out of her way to provide sharp little teeth is a proof that they are meant to be used Toothless gums should le good enough for sloppy foods. To give the teeth some work to do Is the best way to preserve them. There must lb: something rotten in the state of Den mark when 80 p...
Dreams. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 10 August 1917
Dreams. When war comes to a country as.it has come to us, it means bloodshed. When the country is unprepared, as Australia was and is, the extra and needless bloodshed is very great. Thanks to the mother country, our troops when they went to battle were properly equipped, well cared for and physically fit. But for these circum stances the tale of Australian disas ters would have been twice or thrice what it is. As things stand, however, we have to take stock of our position and realise to ourselves what we in Australia should do to make the great dreams of continued Australian suc cess a reality. Dreams-noble, pat riotic, self-sacrificing dreams - are great factors in the history of a na tion. It was noble dreams and as pirations for national unity that created the Republic of the United States. Splendid dreams of national unity and duty sent 300,000 splendid young men across the seas to show a wondering world what the latest-born branch of the British race could do in tile way of s...

TRY THIS ! [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917
TRY TEHS ! Here is something to fill up that odd moment. It looks like magic, but but it is not. It is just plain ma thematics. Take a sheet of paper. Write down the number of your living brothers. Done that ? Then multiply by two. add three, and multiply by five. Quite simple, you see ! Nothing at all intricate. Next add the number of your living sisters. And, after that, multiply the result by ten. Near the end now. This is the last lap. Add the ,number of your dead sisters and brothers, and subtract 150 from the result. If you have done this little sum correctly, the left-hand. figure will show the number of living brothers, the centre figure will represent your living sisters, and the right-hand one will indicate the deaths. Figures never lie. An instructive and pathetic custom still prevails in Munich. Every desti tute child found begging in the streets is arrested, and carried to a charit able institution. On his arrival he is photograpbed-dirt, rags, and all. After being main...
SOME SAYINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917
SOME SAYINGS. Great hopes have lean offspring. Speech is the small change of sil ence. Poetry--Tiose that have souls meet their fellows there. Observation is the most enduring of the pleasures of life. What a woman thinks of women is the test of her nature. There is nothing the body suffers that the soul may not profit by. Which is the coward among us ? He who sneers at the feelings of hu manity. Convictions are generally first im pressions that are sealed with later prejudices. "There is many a true word spoken in evidence" is the latest-and most surprising rendering of an ancient. saw. In Tokio there is a "Rogues' Gal lery," where the complete records of 150,000 criminals are kept.
NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917
NOTHING SERIOUS. A young merchant recently present ed to his better half an elaborate piano lamp. He was much flattered when she told him she intended to give it his name, until he asked her reason for so peculiar a proceeding. "Well," she said, "you know, dear, it has a good deal of brass about it; it is handsome to look at ; requires a good deal of attention ; is remark ably brilliant ; is sometinies unsteady on its legs ; liable to explode when only half full; flares up occasional ly ; it is always out at bed time, and is bound to smoke. She was a green hand, called in suddenly to assist the regular ser vants in passing tea and cake at the extra special At-home of the De Ponsonbys, and her name was-guess. Quite right ! Her name was Brid get. Conversation was at a discount. There had been a distinct lull for five minutes, tempered only by the clink. ing of spoons aesd the rattle of cups and saucers. And then, through the stillness, came the hoarse voice of Bridget : "Annie !" Anni...
CHEESE SOUFFLE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917
CHEESE SOUFFLE. Sprinkle the bottom of a pudding dish thickly with biscuit or stale bread crumbs, pepper and salt, then drop bits of butter over it. Next add a layer of chipped cheese, and so on, alternating the layers of crumbs and cheese till the dish is filled. Over the top turn a lightly-beaten egg. Set in the oven, and bake for half an hour. HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Lemons are very useful in health and sickness. Hot lemonade is one of the best remedies for an incipient cold. It is also excellent in cases of biliousness. For malaria, the "Ro man cure" is prepared by cutting the rind and pulp of a lemon into a pint of water, then boiling until there is only half a pint. One teaspoonful should he taken before each meal. This has cured obstinate cases when quinine failed. A quick way of making delicious chocolate is as follows:-Mix a heap ing teaspoonful of cocoa with a little more than the quantity of condensed milk, allowing this proportion to each cup. When this has been well mixed, pou...

Cream the butter and flour together, add, and let it boil up. Send it to the table in a covered dish.
