NOTHING SERIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

NOTHING SERIOUS. The Rev. Dr. Twitcheil, at the edu catlonal conferences at Lexlngto~. began one of his little speeches with, "Gentlemen and ladies." He hastily corrected himself and passed the An cident" off with the following anec dote : A teacher asked her class if the senteonce, "The horse and the cow is in the lot," were correct. Most of the cla~se thought it all right as it stood, but one little boy found fault. "Now, children," said the teacher, "listen to Tommy. Why is it wrong, Tommy, to say 'The horse and the cow is in the lot' ?" "Please, ma'am, the lady should be mentioned first." The following appeal of a Western editor is still going the rounds, al though it is to be hoped that by this time the writer's only trouble is in having his vest made large enough : "We see by, an esteemed contempo rary that a young lady in Chicago is so particular that she kneads lbread with her gloves on. What of that ? The editor of this paper needs bread with his coat on ; he needs bread wi...

WHEN THE "KILLER" CABLE. A GRAPHIC NATURE SKETCH OF THE SEA, AND MURDER BENEATH THE WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

WHEN THE "KiLLER" CAME. A GRAPHIC NATURE SICRTCH OF THE SEA, AND MUlRDER BENEATH THE WAVES. It was cold enough wvnthout the water, but there was water every where-solid green heaves of it, far as the eye could reach, mile apon mile, and never still. And beyond that, and beyond that again, as far as the eye could reach, for a day's journey, and days upon days upon days' journey. Somehow it seemed as if nothing could live there, but things did. It was a world unto itself. Indeed, a little sooty bird, mostly wing, came tripping over the waves at that mo menr.t, half paddling, half flying-a stormy petrel. And another and lar ger bird-snowy white and soft, pale grey-came, driven by an invisible force or magic, it seemed, gliding on long wings, stiller and straighter than any bird's wings almost, and that was a fulmar petrel. So. many miles from land? Oh, yes, they were built for ,that, and so much children of the sea that the i latter, at any rate, had lost the power to walk. After them,...

THE "ALL FOR MONEY" MARRIAGE. A FRENCHWOMAN'S TRIBUTE TO THE BRITISH WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

THE "ALL FOR MONIEY" MARRIAGE. oa f A FRENCHWOMAN'S TRIBUTh TO STHE BRITISH WAY. The marriage of love or the mar liege of convenience? Heart or r head? British way or French? Which is the more conductive to a life of happiness? An English lady recently did France Sthe honour of praising, through the medium of the "Sunday Pictorial," one of France's least honourable in e stitutions: Le mariage de conven ance. As a Frenchwoman, happily inarried to an Englishman, let me return the compliment by paying a tribute to the British mariage d' amour. - I have been married long enough to i be exonerated from the charge of be Sing carried away by romantic ideas. Certainly I do not believe in "hasty" r ng arriaes. wybyrmnicies tmarriages. But equally certainly I do believe in love as a first essen tial. I Courtship in France is a triangu lar affair : it is generally brought Iabout and supervised by a third party. Here is the usual method of procedure : I A lady friend, knowing that the parents o...

Well Weaponed. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

Well Weaponed. The Landlady: I heard you singing in your room this evening. The Fourth Floor Back: Oh, I sing a little to kill time. The Landlady: Permit me to say that you have an excellent weapon. Percy: Have a cigar, old boy? I'm afraid, though, these are not very good. In fact, they may be worse than those I gave you last. ¶nus (in a burst of politeness): Im possible, my dear boy-impossible! A novice at golf had ploughed up the turf all around the ball without nloviug it. "Guv'nor," his caddie, a typical street gamin, at length blurted out. "'if I'd known you was coming to dlig for worms, I'd ha' brought a spade! 'ou'd ha' done it quicker!" Genius without taste will often commit enormous errors, and, what is worse, it will not be sensible of them.

WITH THE SIGNALLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

WITH THE SIGNALLERS. -4--f- Infantri signallers are divided into groupe--linesmen and operators. Of the two, the lineemen h*e probably the most exacting and responsible work to do. Keeping the wires in Stact and serviceable is no sincure. The men are on duty practically day and night, although during the night the work is taken in turn. When the' operator at headquartera can get no reply from one of the companies or from the brigade offic, the linesman is sent for. With a spare phone over his shoulder, he prepares to follow whichever wire is reported "'dis." to its other end. At intervals he "tape in," and if be is still in communication with head unarters, he carries on until he comes to the break. After the break is re paired, he calls up both ends and puts the operators in "touch" once more. This, of course, is all right in the daytime, it things are fairly quiet, but in the dark the difficulties of this operation are multiplied a, thou sandfold. In the darkness he can't see the ...

HEREDITY AND RELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

HEREDITY AND RELATIONS. Dealing with the subject of heredity i and consanguinity (blood relation ship) Dr. Benedict in an interesting paper points out the enormous num ber of persons whose blood flows in the veins of any individual. To appreciate this, he says, one has but to try a little experiment. Each of us has two parents, four grandparents, . eight great-grandpar ents, the number doubling with each generation as we go back. Take a piece of paper and draw at the bottom a horizontal line one eighth of an inch long. That repre ECents yvo. Half an inch above it draw a line twice as long (a quarter of an inch); this represents your par ents. Half an inch above this draw a third line half an inch long, to represent your grandparents. Keep on doing this until you have drawn ten lines, each double the length of the line below it. That will take you back only ten generations, a matter of about 300 years, but your tenth line will be 5 feet 4 inches long, as it represents your 512 great-...

THE FLOWER SHOW. A GREAT SUCCESS. The flower show held in Pakenham on Saturday last, in aid of the .Anza. Buffet Fund, prove- a great success, bith financially and othevrwise. Notwithstanding the unfavorable season, the show of flowers was a very fine one, bsth as regards the quality sf exhibits and the variety of flowers shown. The wisdom of fixing the date for a flower show so early in the year was questioned, but Saturday's exhibition proves that, given a normal Sseason, the prospects for a September show are good. The judge-Chaplain Gates-in commenting on the show, said that the display of flowers was excellent in quality, some of the blooms being equal to anything he had ever seen.

SUBMARINE CHASERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

SUBMARINE CHASERS. -4----- Those who ask what good the Americans could do in war have their answer. The Americans are born mechanics. They face a mechan ical problem as it is faced nowhere else. They are not eatisfied with designing a novelty; tools and ma chines must also be devised to pro duce it effectively and economically. They have been doing this in the case of a submarine chaser, as it has been styled, and the present results promise further to astonish the world. One company built 550 of such boats in something less than 550 days, at a cost of about £4,400,000. and the production will he much speeded up. The same company can now turn the boats out at the rate of threesa day. There are other cor. cern, equally interesting in covering the seas with these U-boat terrors, some of which will do their 35 knots. The makers have star.dardised everything in the craft from the keel up. The quantity to be turned out enabled them to standardise more thoroughly than had ever before been...

WHEN NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

WHEN NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE FAILURE. Nothidg, they say, succeeds like success. But success, too easily won, does not whip up a man's best energies. It is failure that lashes the man with grit into a supreme effort. The life-stories of great men are always stories of a heartsick wait for success, early hardships heroically battled with, terrifying obstacles overcome by dogged effort. The grim fear of failure spurs on the men who are worth their salt. Their disappointed hopes only make them set their jaws hard and fight on more desperately than ever. Nothing succeeds like failure if only a man has the uncommon sense to learn its lesson. It brings out his fighting qualities. Hie has his back to the wall. lie has only his courage and resourceful ness to save him. Stern qualities come to his aid. lie would not have suspected their existence if his life had been easy and unruffled. Under stress of severe trials he learns to know himself. A ceaseless struggle with difficul ties is the condi...

TALKING BETWEEN AIRSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

TALKING BETWEEN AIRSHIPS. In considering means of signalling from airships one's first thought would be to turn to wireless tele graphy, but on account of the many troubles experienced with same, rit be comes necessary to search for some other more practical means for com munication with the observation sta tions. The French airships are using the "Means" method. A cylinder -having :a capacity of about live gallons is filled with lamp-blatck. The bottom is connected with the exhaust pipe andl th.' connection between is pro vided with a valve, kept in closed position by a spiral slring. By pull ing on a cord the valve opens and a part of the lamp-black is blown out by the exhaust from the motor and produces a (lark streak in the atmos phere. A shorter or longer opening of the valve produces a streak. of corres ponding length, and the signs pro duced are in accoidance with the morse code. These black streaks are plainly visible for two minutes even in win'lv weather. The advantage of ...

"POTATOES, BRETHREN." A "TATTIE" SERMON, AND ITS SEQURL. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

"POTATOES, BRETHREN." -4----- A "TATI,'" SERMON, AND ITS SEQURL. The IReverend James George Jimp ingtoa is a very decent sort,--for a parson-but rnext time he gets in a sack of potatoes in war time he'll have more sense than have it carted to the manse in broad daylight. It was like this :-Billy Lawson and myself were tearing down the manse brae on Saturday forenoon when we saw Johnny Biggrigg's cart at the back door of the manse. "Gie's a hans," he shouted, "wi' these tatties." As we have the run of the Biggrigg farm on the hill we obligingly assisted, and grinned ap preciatively at the back-chat between Johnny and the manse cook. "'Tattles is getting scarce," said Johnny. "So's men." was the retort; "I see you're no listet yet." "Wumman," said Johnny seriously, '"1 wunner at ye an' me helping to feed the kintra !" "Ay," says Jean shortly, "feedin's a sicht easier than fechtin'." Johnny treated Billy and me.to his views on "weemin" all the way home in the cart; we agreed with him c...

"MEASURE FOR MEASURE." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

"MEASURE FOR MEASURE." Say, is it fate, or have the gods de creed it To puzzle sons of men who thought less read it? 'Measure for measure, as you give, 'twill be, By unseen hand. returned to thee." Nay, there is something even more divine .Moulding the fashion of your life and mine. Measure for measure, ages thus re cord, ".Measure for measure," God writes in his Word. The hand of destiny moves slow and seemeth Uncertain oft as when some spirit dreameth, But on the changing dial, see, 'tis cast, "Measure for measure" comes to view at last. Mills of the gods grind slow, but grind for: all, While ages pass they grind exceed ingly small. Then learn the lesson, Heaven itself has thought it, And human history has surely taught it, ,Whether for weal or woe, for life or Sdeath, In sorrow's pain or Joy's sweet song of mirth, "Measure for measure," thus the , warning rings, :For each, for all, for beggars, and for kings. -R.

MAKE THE MOST OF LIFE. A Straight Talk to the Ambitious Young Man. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

MAKE THE MOST OF LIFE. A Straight Talk to the Ambitious Young Man. You are trying, by deliberate effort, to make the best of life. That is the right thing to do. You may not accomplish your heart's desire. Youthful plans are apt to be big, but life is bigger still; it refuses to be crushed into the narrow limits of ambition. It will prove grander and richer, as well as more perplexing, than it seems to you now. Life, as it has been said, is like playing a violin solo in public, and learning the Instrument as one goes on. Depend upon it, you will strike many uncertain, jarring notes; but have patience. You will learn in gocd time, if you do not despair, the glad music of a full and useful life. Study the art of cheerfulness. The youth who likes to be miserable is a bore, and the world hates a bore worse than it hates sin. Learn to come up smiling after every rebuff. Good humor is the salt that gives the perfect savor to every other virtue. The most com pletely lost of all days, says ...
