NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
WOTHING SERIOUS. ed to his better half an elaborate piano lamp. He was much flattered when she told him she intended to g ive 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 aho?t it; it is handsome to look at ; requires a good deal of attention ; is remark ably brilliant ; is sometides unsteady on its legs ; liable to explode when only half full; dares up occasional ly ; it is always out at bed time, and is bound to smoke. She was a green bhand, called in suddenly to assist the regular ser vants in passing tea and cake at the extra special At-home of the De Poneonbys, 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 and the rattle of cups o and saucers. And then, through the stillness, came the hoarse voice of Bridget : "Annie !" Annie, the very superior parlour maid,...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
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.

Ladies' Column. REST AND RECREATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
Ladiess' Column. REST AND RECREATION. Along the line of justithable 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 think., 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 heart 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 free...

A WILY PARSON. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
A WILY PARSON. "The Merry Past," a book recently publisheId, abounds in good stories. Here is one of a fox-hunting parson: The Rev. Mr. Wright, who had a living in" the West of England, re fused tri read the Athanasian Creed. though repea?tedly desired to do so by his parishioners. They complained to the lishop, who ordered it to be read. The Creed in question is ap pointed to be said or sung, and Mr. Wright accordingly on the following Sunday thus addressed the congrega tion : "Next follows Athanasiius's Creed, either to be st.nd or sung, and with Heavcn's leave I'll sing it. Now, clerk, mind what you're about !" After this they both struck up, and sang it with great gtee to a fox hunting tune, which, having previous ly been practiced, was well perform ed. The scandalised parishioners again met and informe? l their dio cesan of what they called the inde crum, but the bishop said that the pastor was right, for it was so or dered, in consequence of which they declared that they wonld...

CHAPTER XI. The dinner was a marvel, and the table itself, with its exquisite flowers varying from deep red to pale pink its cut glass, its gleaming gold it amber-colored fr;uit, its endless sue cession of appetising dishes-was thing to wonder at To Daphne it was a nightmare, and as the time s!fpped by she wonderer: if her courage would hold out. Ever Sophie's presence added to her sense or baffled hopelessnes, for fond a she was of her, teere could be s.. little confidence between them nowv. Barnstaple sat on her right, an she talked to him intermittently. I wa: easier in moments like this, whe:. they could speak of ordinary common things, and bolster up this mocker: of an engagement with laughter ant: talk, than in the moments when the. were alone; for the Nemesis that lie in wait for those who ...

..JOSH BILLINGS' PHILOSOPHY. I have never seen a person yet wlhy dlin't kknow hiz nabor a grate deal better than he did himself. Self-respeckt may never hav madt a man a Christian, but it iz one ov the very beat steps he kan take to ward it. Time iz an absolute tyrant; and az we gro older, and less able to bear Ihis edikts, lie grows mnore exacting andt intolerable. The nlore suffering and pain that a man kan endure without llinching. the more he is like a bull terrier. It is easy enough to s:e how othe people's yung ones might behave bet ter, but inlpossible to see how our own could. Error is very numble at the start but the staying qualitys of truth all wuss wins tile race at last. A bully is a fellow who allywuss meazures his courage bi the othe. phellow's timidity. A wag iz a kind ov sckond-rate drollerist. who deals in kast-off jokes: he iZ on the level ov the clown. and only one remove abuvv the loafer.

JOINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
JOINTS. A joint of articulation may be de fined as the connecting point or sur face of two or more bones of the body.

They were from fif teen to sixteen feet or more In height, and measured some thirty feet in length. The skeletons, or hard parts, have been known for a number of years, and some...
HARD METAL CUT BY SOFT. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 August 1917
HARID MIETAL CUT BY SOFT. A bar of hard steel is cut rapidly with a. revolving disc of soft iron. This is caused by the intense beat produced by the friction ; the heat being concentrated at one point on the steel bar, melts this, while the revolving disc distributes it over its circumference, which is kept cool by the current of air. A bar 31 milli meters thick is cut in two by a disc i, centimeters in dianieter and 2 mil imeters thick: revolving at 80 metres a second in from eight to ten sec onds. The sages of the. general store were, discussing the veracity of old Si Perkins when Uncle Bill Abbot am bled in. -. "What do you; think 'about it, Uncle Bill 7?" they isked him. "Would youi call Si Perkins a liar ?" "Well," answered Bill slowly, as "I -don't know as I'd go as far as to call him a liar exactly, but I do know this much : when feeding time comes, in order to get any response from his hogs, he has to get some body else to call 'em for him." The literary boarder fastened his...
