WASTED FUEL. YOU WILL FIND THESE HINTS WORTH FOLLOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

WASTED FUEL. YOU WILL FIND THESE HINTS WORTH FOLLOWING. Around the months of coalpits, and in every iplace where coal is kept, lie thousands of slack and dust, which in many cases is actually given free to anyone who will cart it away. Briquettes can he formed of this dust mixed with clay,, which will give a fierce heat at a very small price ; but the difficulty is to make these solid enough to stand transportation. A suitable binding material is a much needed invention. Some years ago a company thought they had solved the problem and erected works on the Thames at which they turned out quantities of an excellent briquette, absolutely smokeless and extremely strong. They were made of anthracite coed-dust, mixed with a little rice flour. But an unexpected difficulty arose. It was discovered that the blocks would not keep. A sort of fungus, generated no doubt by the rice flour, .sprouted all over them, and soon reduced them to dust. THE "SUBSTITUTE" MANIA. Lately, a Battersea firm beg...

HARD ON THE ARTIST. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

HARD ON THE ARTIST. MIr. John Lavery, the-famous artist. had a funny experience at Newmarket some time ago. On that historic race course bookmakers are forbidden to put up stands or display boards. But the famous Academician only wanted to sketch the course, and, as he was staying with Lord Derby, lie welt boldly and set up his easel. Rut he reckoned without the race course policeman, who told him to "get out of it," mistaking his easel for a stand. As he had not got a written permission he told the policeman lie was a guest of Lord Derby, but the unbelieving Bobby only said: "Same old yarn. They all do it! Come out of it!" And Ir. Lavery had to "come." M?r. Fred Roo had a disconcerting experience whilst sketching in a side street in Portsmouth. A sporting in dividual approached him and said in confidential tones: "What d'ye charge for works that size?" Mr. Itoe ex plained it was not for sale. but just a sketch for a more important picture. "Well," said the querist, "you see. I'm a ...

BEES AS ADVANCE GUARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

BEES AS ADVANCE GUARDS. Man has for centuries impressed various animals into his service for military purposes, but it has remained for the Germans in East Africa to mobolise bees against the enemy. Ac cording to a story in "La Nature" (Paris). this was done early in the war when British troops had set out from Mombasa toward the neighboring German port of Tanga, the terminus of the Woshi railroad. "The country is covered with a thick forest traversed by narrow paths. In the trees near tihe latter the Germans had placed swarms of bees which had been stupe lied by smoke and then placed in lea tilher bottles." The bottles were closed by covers or stoppers connected with cords and wires which were laid across the paths, but carefully concealedl in sand or under-brush. When tile regi ments of the Loyal North Lancashire and the Cashmere Fusiliers arrived they promptly fell into tile unexpected trap. When their feet caught in tile cords the covers were pulled off the nlovel hives, and the...

SAVING A SHIP SINGLE HANDED. THRILLING HEROISM OF THE MERCHANT SERVICE RECALLED. "I'm an American citizen," said Robert Fergusson. second officer of the steamer Vigilant, "but I wasn't born in Glasgow for nothing. I knew the British Government wanted that ship, and I vowed I'd get her in or die in the attempt." It was on October 13th, 1916, that the Vigilant left New York, bound for Bristol, .but due first to touch at Canadian ports. The weather was awful. It grew worse and worse, un til, on October 27th, when off the Irish coast, things were so bad that the S O S message was sent- out. - A message came back from the great Dutch- liner Rynland that she would take off the crew. She came. Of the Vigilant's crew of sixteen, all were ready to go but Fergussor,. He said he would stay, and at the last minute two other men-Thomas Welch and John Smith -decided to stay with him.

DISHING A GERMAN CRUISER. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

DISHING A GERMAN CRUISER. Captain Kinneir, of the liner Orte ga, saved her from the deadly danger of a German armed cruiser. The Ortega had no guns. She was a slow ship, and she was tackled by a Hun cruiser of twenty-one knots and heavily armed. This was off the western end of the Straits of Magel lan. Captain Kinneir knew he could not fight, so be ran. He had three hun dred French reservists aboard, and turned as many as could be placed there into the stokehold. With flames spouting from her funnels, he drove his ship at eithteen knots into the uncharted Nelson Strait, bristling with rocks and reefs, and dared the German to follow. The history of British merchant shipping offers many similar in stances of heroism. On February 10th, 1904, the steam er Propatria left St. l'ierre. New foundland, and next day ran into a most appalling storm. The tempera ture was arctic. The waves froze as they fell on her reeling deck. Came a monstrous wall of water, and when it passed the forward hold...

OUR LIQUID FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

OUR LIQUID FIRE. Describing in the "Daily Mail" some of the leading incidents in our advance. Mr. W. Beach Thomas says: We have seen victory in all Its forms. The best was the visible waves of two kilted regiments swing ing up the hill towards Cambrai in open formation. Not a shell pitched among them, so clean were the heavens swept of aerial observers and so muddled were the German gunners. We saw our own field guns te2cing forward at the gallop into villages until just now in Germarn hands, and a little later spare artillery horses were coming in the opposite direc tion with" German guns bchind them. We saw the German caught by his own petard in a literal sense, for one of the agents was our liquid fire (a form of attack specially recommend ed by Von Arnim to Hindenburg), which descended in gilded rain on the terrified enemy. Never did a ter .rible thing look so beautiful. We have seen our cavalry trot for ward into ambush and tighten girth for a gallop. We saw the tanks de sertin...

BRACKEN AS FOOD. GOVERNMENT ANALYSIS. The Board of Agriculture draws at tention to the use of bracken root as food. A recent analysis of bracken root which the Government Laboratory has carried out for the Board, shows that nearly two-thirds of the "root" consists of carbohydrates of which about one-half is starch.

However, you .say to yourself, in this little midget of mortality going to get up pluck and courage enough to tight the battle that is before her and cothe off with any show of suc Time has been when a girl who could read and write and "cipher," and who could make a quilt and knit a stocking so that the heel wouldn't pucker into the foot, and cook a din ner and keep house creditably, was re garded as sulficiently accomplished for ordinary purposes; and the young man who married her was looked upon us lucky to have secured so good a housekeeper and might well consider himself blessed among men.

WOMEN AND OLD EGYPT. SURPRISING DISCOVERY OF SACRED RIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917

WOMEN AND OLD EGYPT. SURPRISING DISCOVERY OF SACRED RIGHTS. An amazing picture of the corrup tion, splendour, cruelty, picturesque ness and barbarism of the ancient world has just been revealed by the hand of science. Professor Thomas Whittemore has found an e.ncient cemetery at Saw ana, in Egypt, entirely filled with the bodies of women devotees of the Temple of Hathor---women who gave up everything that they should hold sacred for the glorification of their goddess. The cemetery dates from the eighteenth Egyptian dynasty, that is between 3497 and 3267 years ago. Magdalenes we might call the tem ple women, but there is every reason to believe that in submitting them Eelves to what modern people con sider the last degradation, they saw nothing wrong, and were sincerely convinced that they. were serving the cause of their unholy religion. They were chosen for their beauty, and many, if not all of them, died young, as their remains prove even to-day. They were kept apart from the worl...
