Sat On. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

SThe Kaiser, whom his courtiers will not credit with having the gift of hu mor. once, it is said, met with rather a nasty rebuff when exercising his tactless wit. Having at one time. expressed to the Duke of Connaught great admiration for some carpets he saw at Windsor Castle, the Duke subsequently sent him a present-of certain fine speci mens. They were placed in the music room of the Royal Palace at Potsdam. and the next time the Duke of Con naught was there the Kaiser drew his attention to them. Strutting over them, he asked the Duke, "Do you know what I was thinking? I was thinking as I walked over these beaun tiful carpets, Germany trampling on English manufactures." "Indeed," returned the Duke, smil ing also, as he seated himself on a cushion on which the lineaments of the War Lord had been depicted. "Germany trampling on English manu factures, and England sitting on the German EmDirel"

Marking Time. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

JMarking Time. For many months back the most ardent advocates of the voluntary re cruiting system have complained more or less loudly that the young men of Victoria have been "marking time." They have been appealed to in every way that seemed .likely to arouse the sense of loyalty to their overseas cornifades that we all know lies dormant in the breasts of the great Ilajority of eveL the most per si::tent stay-at-home soft-jobber. Mill tary bands, recruiting trains., constant appeals from returned soldiers. and eloquent orators. personal canvassing by ladies of all ages and classes have been anti are being tried, but the re sults are eminently unsatisfactory. Effort to induce eligible young men to recognise their duty to the land of their birth has been unflagging, but even now there scents to be no light ening of the horizon. The question is constantly asked what remains to be done? It lhas been answered ef fectively and equitably by all the other belligerent nations, buIt tile ver...

PERHAPS YOU DON'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

PERHAPS YOU DON'T KNOW. That, after washing, japanned trays should be polished with beeswax and turpentine. That kitchen towels should be washed out daily after the dinner things are put away. That when patching your wall paper you should scallop the edges roughly, and you will find the patch is lhardly noticed. That no one. not even the most de licate, should sleep without a por tion of the window down. To prac tise this winter and summer tends to a sound chest. That to soften steel you must heat to a dull red just visile in daylight, hold till the red color is just discern ible in the dark, and then plunge it into cold water. That if your feet ache after stand ing, the pain may be relieved by soak ing them before you get into bed in hot salt and water, drying them and rubbing briskly, especially about the ankles, with a rough towel. That a little glycerine added to gum or glue is a great improvsmnent. as it prevents the gum or glue be coming brittle. It also prevents gummed labels...

Fired a Parting Shot. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

Fired a Parting Shot. A gentleman entered the advertise ment office of a morning paper the other day and gravely placed upon the counter the announcement of the death of a friend, together with five shillings. The clerk glanced at the paper, and tossed it down impatient ly with the gruff remark, "Six shil iings!" "Are you not mistaken?" said the other. "There are not more than five lines." "Six." rapped out the clerk, "un less you knock out universally be loved and deeply regretted."' The advertiser produced the addi tional shilling and lal it delihberate ly by the others, observing in his most solemn tone, "Congratulate? yourself, sir, that this is an expense your relatives will never be put to!"

Proportionate Losses. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

Proportionate Losses. Two Englishmen were discussing warfare. Joe: I say, Tom; a revolution must cost a good trany thousand pounds. Tom: Nonsense!' As a rule it only costs twenty-five shillings. Joe: Hlow do you make that out? Tom: Well, you see, the king loses a crown and the people lose a sove reign. The things we want most in this world are always those beyond our reach. If we had them we wouldn't be a bit happier. Ve only think we would. No matter how little we have, we always have plenty to be thinklul for. Happiness depends not so much on means and opportunities as on the capacity of using them. And this depends so much on experience and self-control that the probability of happiness in old age is as great, to say the least, as it is in youth. Never cast aside your friends if by any possibility you can retain them. We are the weakest of spendthrifts if we let one drop off through inatten tion, or let one push away another, or we hold aloof from one through petty Jealousy or he...

THE COUNTRY FAITH. Away in the country's heart Where the grass is green, And life Is the same sweet life As it e'er hath been, Trust in a God still lives; And the bells at morn Float with the thought of God O'er the rising corn. God comes down in the rain, And the crops grow tall This is the country faith, And the best of all.

PLOTS TO MURDER FAMOUS POLITICIANS. SOMETIMES THEIR DOUBLES SUFFER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

PLOTS TO MURDER FAMOUS POLITICIANS. SOMETIMES THEIR DOUBLES SUFFER. The recent alleged 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 men, Lord Frederic 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 Chbinet Minister. No fewer than three Presidents of the United States have b...

MEMORY AMONG BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

MEMORY AMONG BIRDS. ---4t-- 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 verie ty of the feathered fraternity. Re cently he became specially friendly with a male chaffinch, feeding it fre quently, and encouraging it to follow him shout 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 u...

THE CONTINENT OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 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 pence times he would go to France, to Belgium, to Norway. to Switzerland, while all the time be could take a 'bus and visit these countries in London, 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 Germin 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 glamour...

A MIRAGE IN THE CLOUDS. AIRMAN'S WEIRD ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917

A MIRAGE IN THE CLOUDS. AIRMAN'S WEIRD ADVENTURE.

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 myright 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.,...
