Credit Foacier Loans. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
Credit rocier Loans. The Commissioners of the State Sav ings Bank of Victoria announce through our advertising columns that they are lending money to farmers and othars on very easy terms of repayment. The Credit Foncier system of loans for long terms has now been in op-ra tion for over 20 years, and during that period has proved a boon to the man on the land. Loans are granted on freeholds, or Crown leaseholds which could be mole freehold at any time on payment of the balance of Crown rents. The Commnia sioners have power to lend two-thirds of their own valuation of a property, and loan money may be used for the purpose of paying oil existing liabili i.-. on the land taken as security, in pir chasing property, paying Crown rcn':, purchasing stock or implements, in proving the property, or carrying on farming operations. Repayments are spread over a long termn of years, and borrowers are thus saved the ex pense and worry of frequent renewals of mortgage. Loans may be paid off in ful...

The Flower Show. A flower show and sale of gifts to raise funds for the Anzac hutret, Lon don-an institution that has done much to help the Australian soldiers--is to. be opened in the JIechanics' Institute, Pakenham, to-morrow at 2 p.m. The opening-ceremony will be performed by the Hon. J. E. Mackey, as Mr W. S. Keast has had to go to New South Wales on important business. When fixing the date for the exhibi tion some weeks ago'some doubt was expressed as to whether many flowers would be available so early in the year. Even up to a week ago the pro spects df securing a good display were not too good, but a few fine days have given a brighter outlook. A" very satisfactory entry has been received in nearly all sections and if all come forward there will be a most attractive display. We would direct attention to the fact that all exhibits must be staged by 11 o'clock on Saturday morning, preparation for which will be made by the stewards. Judging will probably commence at about midday...

Repatriation. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
Repatriation. (By Senator E. D.. Millen.) Repatriation iB an entirely.new pro position though war is as old as humanity itself. Australia is giving a lead to the nations. Repatriation means an organised --effort on the part of the community to look after those who have suffered .from wounds or illnesses as the result of the War, and need care and atten tion, It is not a mere money scattet' ing proposition. ' Repatriation aims at putting soldiers back into civil life with a minimumof delay. If 250,000 men are idle for one week it means a loss of wage earning capacity of nearly £700,000. No matter how earnest and de termined uncoordinated private effort may be, it necessarily lacks uniformity and continuity. The Government would, however, be guilty of a grave blunder if they failed to avail them selves of the generous assistance which so many people are able and willing to render. The Commonwealth has, no intention of taking over existing priv ate funds. Private citizens, individually...
Tricking a Famous Surgeon. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
Tricking a Famous Surgeon. S'r Morell Mackenzie once received a wire from Antwerp asking him his charges for a certain operation. He replied £500, and was told to come at once. When he stepped upon the dock he was met by three men in mourning, who informed him sadly that he had come too late; the pa tient had died that morning. "But," said the spokesman of the party, "we know that you did what you could, and we do not intend that you shall be out of pocket a shilling. We shall pay you your full fee." And they did. "And now," said the man, "mince you are here, what do you say to visiting the city hospital and giv ing a clinic for the benefit of our local surgeons? It is not often they have an opportunity of benefiting by such science as yours." Sir Morelt said he would gladly comply. He went to the hospital and performed many operations, among which were two of a similar nature to that for which he had'been called in. When.he had finished all thanked him profusely. On the steamer goi...
Sold Again. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
Sold Again. A man sauntered up to a fruiterer's shop in Deal and entered into friendly chat with the proprietor. "Do your women customers bother you much?" he asked; "beating clown prices, and that sort of thing?" "Very often," said the shopkeeper. "Here's one coming now, for instance. She regularly tries to buy grapes marked two-and-sixpence per pound for two shillings. If I were to ask one-and-six, she'd want 'em for a shil ling." "Fancy that!" said the other. "I say, why not offer them to her at one and-six, just for a lark? Then, wl; she bids a shilling, tell her she's miss ed her chance, as you cannot offer them again at less than half-a-crown." "Good idea," said the fruiterer. "I'1. do It!" A few minutes" later the lady ar rived. "tlow much are your grapes this morning?" she Inquired. "Only one-and-six, ma'am," said the dealer, winking slyly at the other plot ter. "Then I'll take the whole lot! quietly observed the lady. She did, too. The strange man dis appeared, and the frui...

CLOUDS ACROSS THE BLUE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
CLOUDS ACROSS THE BLUE. The mist wreaths dim the morning. And storms o'ercast the day, While thunder's rolling echoes Live in the far away. There is no perfect summer, No vision clear and true. iarth's fairest scenes are shaded With clouds across the blue. But while the storm-clouds gather, Eclipsing scenes that cheer, Faith sings in revelation "The heaven above is clear." It tells of glory smiling Behind, while stars shine through. T' e tempest can but carry Their clouds across the blue. So in life's anxious moments, When heart anil hand are pressed. With spirit heavy burdened. And heart so oft distressed. Fa'th bows beside its sorrow, The darkened heavens to view, But still It sings while weeping. Of clouds across the blue. -R. HARE. Cooranbong, N.S.W.
The World's Enemy. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
The World's Enemy. Australia does not realise the great efforts by Germany to achieve vic tory. She has sustained crushing de feats, but her .ndorrlitable spirit is not broken. She is levying upon her whole male population between 17 and 60 for war purposes. Hard and stubborn fighting are still character istic of the soldiers of Germany and Austria. The Fatherland still hugs the hope that Great Britain and her Allies will be defeated ult:mately. Our foes have lost heavily in war and materials, but her wonderfulsystenr of reorganisation still renders her (Gerimany) a formidable enemy, with whom we can take no liberties. tier strength anti persistence call for never-ceas'ng effort on our part, and she is prepared to do everything in her power to conquer us. Hier fleets of submarines are striving desperate ly to weaken our strength on the seas. She is combing out from her civilian population every man fitted to bear arms. Germany's rulers are thorough ly alive to the impossibility of r...
One for the Vicar. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
One -for the Vicar. A vicar was one of the committee of management of a certain school tn the Midlands, anlI his visits weroe u~ually accompanied by strings of questions relating to any discreparcy observable in the schoolroom. On one occasion the vicar's eagle eye noticed a picture that was hanging a trtls askew, and he put the question to the scholars: "Now, can any of you tell me soome thing that is not right in this room?" Many and ver:ed were the answars givein, until, almost losing paticnc?, he said: "Come, come, now, I am surprised at- your lack of observation, for this mistake is very glaring." Up shot another hand. "Well, my lad?" said the vicar, amiably. "Please, sir, you've forgotten to take off your hat." "They say that mate of yours calls himself a practical socialist," observ ed Private Smith. Private Smythe looked up gloomily from his half-pint tankard. "He must be," he said. "He pinches my socks, smokes my fags, and hang ed if he don't write to my girl, too."
A WIFE'S DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
A WIFE'S DUTIES. Many journals touch upon the duty of wives towards their husbands., some in a manner which, to say the least of it, is scarcely fair. For in stance, one paper says the wife should always greet her husband with an amiable smile when he re turns from business. She should never inflict history of the day's "trivial" worries and anxieties upon his weary brain. The children should be safely and comfortably in bed out of the way, the evening meal in readi ness, and the family hearth the pic ture of domestic tranquility. The sanoe journal sets forth the import ance of the wife being a companion to her husband, and sharing all his troubles and anxieties. Was justice ever less partially manifested? The woman, formerly spoken of as the weaker sex, is to support the thousand and one cares of the home and family, look after the health and well-being of all those who dwell beneath t'.e family roof, share the burdens of her better half, and alleviate them when possible. In return...
Berwick News. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 31 August 1917
Berwick News. Mr H. McCann, who has had charge of the Berwick State school for some years, has received a transfer to Malmsbury. Prior to coming to Ber wick he had charge of the Beaconsfield school. Altogether he has been in the district for about ten years. He has always taken a great interest in the town and district and shown a willing ness to help in every progressive move ment. In the matter of sport, he has been an enthusiast, and was one of the most prominent members of the Berwick and District Football Associa tion, which was run with great success up to the time of the outbreak of war. But he has never allowed his love of sport to interfere with his school duties, and the record of merit certifi cates.obtained by the school during the past three or four years is an evidence of that fact. He is methodical, painstaking and conscientious in the teaching and training of the children placed in his charge. His removal from the district will be generally regretted. The local golf ...
Work for Returned Soldiers. AN AVENUE OF HONOR. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917
Work for Returned Soldiers. AN AVENUE OF HONOR. "Hie a debt no gold can ever pay," said one of our rising young Austra lian soldier-poets. Truly the returned wounded soldier has given to hise coun try more than any earthly possession; he has given his services, and in many cases hie limbs and health. Repat rination nmust in future years be Austra lila's greatest policy. Slhe must repay those gallant men who fought for her. Owing to the industrial upheavalsand lack of employment, due to the war's influence on many trades, it is dlli cult now to find many suitable voca tions for partly incapacitated men. It is proposed to take advantage of the present planting season to employ re turned soldiers to plant suitable aven ues of trees as a befitting moeniorial to men who fought for their country. Captain G. J. C. Dyett, organising sec retary of the State Recruiting Com mittee, put the following proposal be fore the Lord Mayor of Melbourne to plant five hundred and fifty acres of reserves ...
HELPFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917
HELPFUL HINTS. When cleaning fish do not let it soak in water, or the flavor will be spoiled. Nettle rash is caused by chill or some error in diet. Keep the patient warm, and give a slight aperient at night, and the rash will disappear. Onions. if rinsed several times in fresh additions of boiling water be fore they are cooked& are much morn digestible than it boiled in the ordin ary manner. A glass of hot milk taken before the patient's bed-time will often induce sleep. Or a rub down with coarse towels till the skin glows is some times efficacious. The simplest and most effectual way to get rid of insects in tables and chairs is: First scald the furni ture with boiling water, pouring it Into all the joints and cracks; then rub over with turpentine, and when it is dry give a coat of spirit varnish. This will effectually cure and prevent them coming back. Finger glasses are provided at dessert, and should be used after fruit has been eaten. Dip the tips of the fingers in ligh...
THE FUTURE OF HOLLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917
THE FUTURE OF HOLLAND. If the land of Holland continues to sink there is danger that the subsi dence will become so great-that, in spite of the progress of engineering science, it will be impoesible to con tinue the ceaseless struggle with the waters. That is the view which Pro fessor Molengraaf of the Polytechnic College of Deift. recently expressed before the Geological Mining Society. A large part oi the Netherlands, par ticularly the western and north-wes tern provinces, lies below the level of the sea, which is kept from over flowing hundrede of aquare miles by the natural barrier of the long line of sand dunes that fringes the coast, re inforced at two or three points by ar tilfcia means. The level of the rivers and many of the canals in such re gions is likewise higher than the sur rounding country, and the nation has to maintain dykes and embankments at great pains and corresponding ex pensee "If," declareP Professor Molen griaf, "the total expenditure should exceed the tota...

The Heart of Daphne By LADY TROUBPRIDGE, Author of "The Cheat," "The Soul of "Honor," "Love, the LaouLmlth," "The Girl with the Blue'Eyes," etc. Published by SDecial Arangzement. Copyright CHAPTER XIII. "I have seen someone else.. ifendham's grip of her shoutlders re laxed, his eyes narrowed. "Someone who loves you?" ihe breathed. "Someone who dares to love you!" A very primitive emotion rang through his words, and his tone was harsh and metallic; but Daphne did not shrink, either from him or his words. A great sweetness was in her voice as she answered him, an exquisite tenderness, and a deep humility, that flooded all her words with a wonder ful atmosphere of their own. "Perhaps it is someone that I have dared to love," she said, and hung her head, afraid of the sound of the words she had spoken. "What do you mean?" But he al moi t whispered the question, as though he did not wish to disturb her train of thought. But Daphne had thrown herself into the deep waters of life; they wer...
