Berwick News. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

Berwick News. The cafe chantant, organised by Miss Barker in aid of the Milk Fund, held on Saturday, August 4, was a great success. It was opened by MrsAndrew Chirnside. The concert programme was arranged,by Mrs a'Beckett, and Miss Edwa:ds, and the performers were Mrs Boston, the Misses Pennicott and Mrs Jennings (Melbourne). A scene from the " Bunyip " was given by Miss D. Moore and the school children and there was step dancing by Miss Lombard. In the evening Cr a'Beckett moved and Mr Vieuseaux seconded the patriotic resolution in connection with the third anniversary of the war. It was carried with acclamation and the National Anthem sung. A profit of £33 was made. Mrs W.

Ladies' Column. REST AND RECREATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

Ladies' Column. -04-- REST AND RECREATION. Along the line of justiUable extra vagance let me make a plea for more recreation for the busy housewife. In caring for her home and loved ones she is too apt to forget the duty she owes herself, and almost before she is aware of the fact she is. growing ner vous, feels discouraged and irritable. At such a time let her pause and consider not how much she will save by continuing in the same old rut, but how much she will gain by laying aside her work for. a time, that she may rest and recuperate. Do not wait until tired nature calls a halt, but make a practice of taking one or two holidays every year, going where you can really rest, and have time to thini., not of the work you have left behind-that will take care of it self-but of the benefit yourself and loved ones will gain. These short se parations "make the hesat grow fon der." and the dear ones will also learn from your absence how neces sary you are to them. Time and money spent more ...

PILGRIMAGE OF THE HOLY CARPET. THE MOSLEM FESTIVAL IN WAR TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

PILGRIMAGE OF THE HOLY CARPET. THE MOSLEM FESTIVAL IN WAR TIME. Somewhere in the Arabian desert. skirting the Red Sea, a long caravan of camels, guarded by a convoy of British troops, is slowly mushing through the sands headed for the sacred Moslem city of Mekka. Among the camels is one which is fairly hid den under trappings of silk, with a myriad tassels of golden thread and tiny pendent bells shimmering and tinkling. Beneath those gorgeous silken covers is folded upon the camel's back a "Holy Carpet" which' seventy of the most expert weavers and embroiderers in the world have been at work on for upwards of a yera. The like of that sacred rug has never been seen in America (says the "Kansas City Star"), and if one could be brought here it would sell for a fortune. This equipsge of Oriental splendour moving over the desert is the pil grimage of the Holy Carpet, and a procession just like it in all respects. except the British guard, has follow ed the same route annually for the las...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

Mr James Perry, of Nar Nar Goon North, met his death on Wednesday last, being killed while at his work. He was employed in getting timber for the local saw-mill. It was his cus tom to pass the mill going to and from work. As he .did not return at the usual hour on Wednesday evening, Mr Davi:, who is also employed at the mill, went in search of him, and dis covered his dead body under the limb of a tree. Information was at once sent to Constable Maher, of Paken ham, who removed the body to his (deceased's) home and notified the coroner of the fatality. Deceased was much respected, and deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. He was a prominent member of the Methodist Church and a local preacher. One of his sons is at the front. A correspondent who signs himself " Struggling Through the Mud," but who neglects to send his name, has written us a lengthy letter on the subject of co-operation. He points out that the growers of produce in the dis trict are placed at a great disadvant...

A MIRAGE IN THE CLOUDS. AIRMAN'S WEIRD ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

A MIRAGE IN THE CLOUDS. AIRMAN'S WEIRD ADVENTURE. An extraordinary story of ai mirage in the clouds is told by a young Fly ing Corps.officer in the following let ter to his father :-"I had often won dered what it would feel like to see a machine coming straight for one and to know that a collision was inevit able. I have had the experience, only the collision did not take place.' I was on patrol with five other mac hines over the lines-(by the way, I am writing this like a novel, but I feel like it)-and had just gone into a cloud bank. Just before going in I saw the 'bus on my,right turning to cross in front of me. All of a sudden I saw a machine just the same as my own appear out of the cloud about 50 feet away, making straight for me. Instinctively I jammed my nose hard down and went as near a nose dive as possible; the other 'bus did the same. I turned ; the other turned in to me. I was" in a cold perspiration all over by this time, so I thought 'Here goes; if I am going to crash...

THE CONTINENT OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

THE CONTINENT OF LONDON. It is curious how ignorant the born Londoner is of his own city. All the wonders of the world are gathered in London, yet the Cockney takes long journeys in order to see them else where. In peace times he would go to France, to Belgium, to Norway, to Switzerland, while all the time he could take a 'bus and visit these countries in Iondon, though certain ly minus their natural scenery. But the essential atmosphere was to be found within a short radius of Piccadilly Circus. How many Lon doners could say. off-hand where to find the Swiss Quarter, the Scandi navian Quarter, the Chinese Quarter, the Russian Quarter, the Dutch Quar ter, the Armenian Quarter. or what now remains of the Germain Quarter ? Wherever the Continental peoples wander they take their own country with them and reconstitute it. while the Briton invariably fits himself in to native backgrounds. Thus you will find the true Paris in Soho ; the real Russia in Stepney and Bethnal Green ; the glamo...

HOUSE OF COMMONS HAUNTED [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

HOUSE OF COMMONS HAUNTED Those who don't believe in ghosts will be surprised to know that sev eral M.P.'s have sworn to the pre sence of apparitions in the House of Commons. A Prime Minister--earl Grey-de clared that he saw a death's head ap pear three times in front of him while delivering his great speech on the in troduction of the Reform Bill. Mr. J. G. Swift MacNeill also swore that he saw Mr. T. P. O'Connor sit ting in his usual seat in the House, while at the- time the gentleman nam ed was in Ireland. Many members, too, have seen the "White Lady." walking in the corri dors of the House. The "Terrace ghost" has often been said to appear. Another, known as the Big Ben ghost, is stated to appear when a member of the Royal Family is about to die. On December 13th, 1861, De cember 13th, 1878, and January 13th, 18932 it appeared as an old man row "ng a little below twestminster Bridge in a rotten skiff, and dashing into the Terrace wall just as Big Ben- com menced to peal midnight....

A MIRACLE METAL. THE REVOLUTION IN ENGINEERING. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

A MIRACLE METAL. THE REVOLUTION IN ENGIN EERING. Tungsten is a mysterious substance. An authority says it is as stubborn, as intractable, as difficult to subdue as a mule. It is harder than the best razor steel, so hard that only the diamond, hardest of all known stibstances, and corundum will cut it. It is two and a half times heavier than iron and it is one-third stronger then the best tensile steel. It onx disei-rusts--about as reluctantly. as gold, and the common acids cannot dissolve it. Furthermore-and this is. an ex tremely important point-it is prac tically impossible to melt tungsten. Steel melts at sixteen hundred de grees Celisius. Twice that heat fails to turn the solid tungsten metal in to a fluid. Even the electric furnace, the nearest approach to the apex of temperature, fails to move tungsten. In other words, a tool made out of pure tungsten could slice into a hun dred pieces the toughest armour plate ever made withqut iosing its cutting edge. But tungsten, even if i...

MEMORY AMONG BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

MEMORY AMONG BIRDS. Birds in districts where the cold has become intense and deep snow covers the land, feel the pangs of hun ger, and are driven in numbers to forage for food in the streets of towns. Even the mavis, one of our shyest- birds, was observed patiently sitting on the doorstep of a private house, its shining eyes watching the door. Most likely it had found a friend there before, for birds do not forget the hand that helps them. Striking proof of this gift of remem brance among birds comes to me from a gentleman whose beautiful garden, lying beside a river, gives shelter and security to a large varie-. ty of the feathered fraternity. Re cently he became specially friendly with a male chailnch, feeding it fre quently, and encouraging it to follow him about the grounds. After a while the chaffinch disappeared, and the gentleman had forgotten all about it, when one day he heard repeated tap ping on one of the windows of the room in which he was sitting, and, looking up-his f...

PLOTS TO MURDER FAMOUS POLITICIANS. SOMETIMES THEIR DOUBLES SUFFER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

PLOTS TO MURDER FAMOUS POLITICIANS. SOMETIMES THEIt DOUBLES SUFFER. The recent naleged attempt to mur der the Prime Minister and Mr. Ar thur Henderson calls to mind the fact that England has always been very free from political crimes. Since 1857 there have been no fewer than forty Royal and political mur ders, only five of which have been per petrated in England. Perhaps our worst instance is the deplorable Phoenix Park case, when two states Smen, Lord Frederick Cavendish and Mr. Burke, were killed outright by Fenian conspirators whilst out walk ing in the famous Dublin park. There is only one instance of the murder of a British Prime Minister taking place within the precincts of the House of Commons. On May 11, 1812, Mr. Spencer Perceval was hurry ing across the Lobby to take part in an important debate, when a man named Bellingham jumped out from behind the railings and fired point blank at the unfortunate Cabinet Minister. No fewer than three Presidents of the United States have...

THE BEACONSFIELD RIDING ELECTION. Cr Martin addressed the ratepayers at Cockatoo on Saturday last. Although ;the weather was extremely wet there was a fair attendance, Mr J. Me Bride, J.P.. being voted to the chair. The Candidate said it augured well for anydistrict when its citizens would turn out on such a night to listen to an exposition on municipal matters. The past three years were the most mom -entus in the history of our country and Empire. At that moment, when so many of .our fellow-men, friends and near relations were heroically shedding .their life's blood on our behalf, in de fence of all that- we held-dear, and made life, either national or individual, worth living, he felt ashamed to be taking part in, after all (compared to that titanic struggle), a puny fight for municipal honors. : Matters locally were surely not so bad that we could not welll afford to withhold fighting one another at such a time of stress, sorroq? and obligation. Surely all our available efforts' ...

THE WANING OF WARS. THE PRICE POSTERITY PAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

THE WANING OF WARS. THE PRICE POSTERITY PAYS. It is estimated that in two years the European war coat between 3,50.0,000 and 4,000,00) lives, as nearly so one can estimate the toll, not counting the hopelessly disabled, which would add perhaps 40 per cent more. The maimed who will still be able to produce their own sustenance are a separate number. Never before has human material been used up at such a rate as this. During the whole nineteenth cen tury the cost of the world's wars in male life probably did not exceed 5.000,000 men. That includes the ten Napoleonic years, in which the total loss of life must have been between 2,000,000 and 2.50(,000, or from I to lf per cent. of the population of Europe at that time. When you think of it in percentages it is not so terrible, at least not at first. Thus, a toll of 1 per cent. of Europe's population for the Napo Ieonic wars is a reckoning which in its statistical interest seems almost unimportant. And, likewise, the pop ulation of Euro...

War Savings Groups. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 17 August 1917

War Savings Groups. The result of the formation of War Savings Groups throughout business houses among employees cannot but succeed in making an appreciable in crease in the amount" which will be eventually riised for the sale of War Savings Certificates. The response which the organisers are receiving is most encouraging, but there is still ample scope in all airenues of life in the community for further groups. The few necessary books and mem ber's cards are snpplied free through the various Committees, and all assist ance afforded in the formation. Members pay regular weekly, fort nightly, or monthly, subscriptions at will, and the Group purchases the £1 certificate for every 17s 6d so subscribed and allots them to members as their subscriptions reach this amount. There is no necessity to go beyond one's own place of business to subscribe in such an instance, which is also a decided advantage to employees with restricted time at their disposal in which to go to a Bank or Post Off...
