WEALTH FROM SAWDUST. Gas and Bread Made From It American and Canadian sawmills have discovered that the sawdust which they have been perplexed how to rid themselves of as a worthless encumbrance is worth at least SO per ton. rn Baltimore a chemist has perfected a process of extracting gas from sawdust, adequate enouglh to supply a city like Ottawa with light and heat at 5d. per 1000ft. This is thought to portend that around tht great sawmfils. whIch have been entp tying their dust into the Ottawa Rive.r a variety of pew industries subsisting on it are likely to grow up.

Polite Melbourne. It was at a puolic-house in .1Mel bourne, where an old lady asked for a onartern of gin In a bottle. "We have three kinds. ma'am." said one of the grinning barmen. "We have oyxgen, hydrogen, and dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin." replied the old lady se verely. When she was served she said: "I was not aware your master kept three asses before, but I notice that he does.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 6 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To prevent window-blind cords breaking, dust the cords, and then rub them over with a well-greased rag. The snapping is caused by friction. which impoverishes the cords, and ley are further weakened by the sue and weather. It is an excellent plan to keep In the kitchen a bottle filled with equal parts of linseed oil and lime-water, to alleviate the pain of burns. Shake the bottle well before using the ,o tfin. and keep the burned parts from :he air by covering with lint. The best way to test silk Is to cut off- a small piece and burn it. If it burns out quickly, leaving a clear. crisp, grey ash, the silk is pure; bit if it smoulders and leaves a heavy reddish-brown ash it has been treated with. chemicals, and will not wear well. A very good way to prevent a crack ed wash-hand basin from breaking 's to paint along the crack with white paint; then place along it a piece tf widle tape, the length of the crack. Paint well over this, and when dry it will be as firm as c...

The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock. "let me ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing income-a young man who believed himself fully capable of mnk ing a woman happy-were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair 'f the texture and glory of spun gold, whose Ifps were more perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, whose cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rose petal-a young woman whose culture and charm easily placed her immea surably above all other women in the world-and he were to ask this young woman if she would-" "Oh.

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 6 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742. there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked up to the end of his long life. Isis works were many, but the most notable was his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. .Milton, for instance, speaks of the comet pouring from his hirrid head pestilence and war," and, ln'leed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared In the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but thls did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fllv yeears later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing migh...

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 6 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is we'i known that colors ha:ve differert effects upon health. Some colors may soothe-green, for in stance-and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, Is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. IRe-I has always been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but also of fejedingf them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. IRed is rnot only good for hluman he icgs, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Hollanm...

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 6 May 1914

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. By a Hospital Nurse. O)rdinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means tile most restful positions you cqn adopt tor, though they ease certain parts of dhe body, they leave others Just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as' high as they will comfortably go. It Is not elcgant. I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but it Is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal-shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered. sis patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief It gavs to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy." though not exactly pr...

Cleveland's Independence Grover Cleveland has Ibeen charac terised by a friend as "the most honest' Ian I ever knew\." le said, before the nomination for his second term, that he 'a-oull have the presidency clean or not at all." As illustrating the independence and dignity of the statesman's conduct, a writer of personal reminiscences of the ex-President mentions this sig-i nificant occurrence :? Once, dluring the out-of-otlice per iod, Lv request and with his con sent, I introduced to'him, at his conmtry house, two acquaintances of wine. One of then., the editor of an influential religious and politi cal paper, had a private convers-l tion with lhim. When he came out, I asked thie editor how he got along with the ex-President.

IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 6 May 1914

IN LOVtE VWITHi A PlICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fail a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. I fell in love with 'MIonna Lisa.' " That was tile declaratlon of Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he had taken it from the Louvre he said that he went home, locked himself in his room. and stood en tranced before It, bewitched by the smile of La Gioconda. There were times, he said. when he felt that he must destroy the picture or he would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the sBe ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to have letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!" Far more people than Vincenzo Per ugia have fallen madly in love with well-known pictures. It was Jillais's picture "Ophelia,"...

Under a new order of the Police Department the troop horses have been removed from the Berwick and Pakenham stations and these places have been made " bicycle stations." The change is a most important one as it may affect the efficie.cy of the pnlice service in ths dis trict. - It is almost imr.ossible for the police, or any one else for that matter, to ride an ordinary bicycle over some ot our rough and hilly roads even in the sum mer, to say nothing of the ainter-a fact tnat can be proved by the hundred and one bicyclists and motorists who come o this district every season-and under the new order of things there is a danger of the out-districts being neglected.
