The Fruit Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

The fruit induptry. In the Legislative Assembly last week, Mr W. S. Keast, r.L.A., asked several questions dealing with the fruit-growing industry. He asked the Premier-(1) If the Government will take into consideration the advis ability of making advaunces to fruit growers during the coming season against their fruit stored in cool stores? (2) If the Government will also take into consideration the question of mak ing advances to small fruitgrowers other than those who use cool stores until such times as they can market their next seasons' crop? The Premier said tile Minister of Agriculture and his officers were in close touch with the various fruit growers' associations as to the most effective means of helping to deal with the anticipated difficulties of mar keting next season's crop. The Gov ernment would be largely guided by the Minister's recommendations when they came to hand. Mr Keast also asked the Minister of Railways "If the Railway Commis sioners will adopt the practice ...

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

Berwick News. It was reported in these columns a few weeks ago that the honor of a life governorship of the Warragul Hospital had been conferred upon Mrs W. G. a'Beckett in recognition of her- good work in connection with a queen com petition held last year to raise funds for that institution. At last meeting of the Hospital committee a letter was received from MIrs a'Beckett, acknow ledging her appointment, in which she stated she deeply appreciated the honor. It would serve to remind her of the plneasant time she had spent in Warra gul during the Queen .Carnival and also deepen her interest in the institu tion. A very successful concert in aid of the funds of the local MIechanics' Institute and Free Library was held on Thursday evening last. An excellent programme was contributed by Mel bourne and local artists, and there was a very large attendance. The profit will amount to about £20. The local golf club opened their season last Saturday, when there was a good attendance on the ...

Settlement of Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

Settlement of Soldiers. Speaking in the Assembly last week on the Discharged Soldiers Settlement Bill which, inter alia, provides for a grant of £.500 to each soldier, Mr W. S. Keast said:-" After a good deal of experience of land settlement in this country, I have come to the con clusion that £500 is inadequate. A soldier may be settled on a block of land coitaining 150 acres, which costs £10 an acre, and has to be cleared and fenced. You do not often find that you can clear for £2 an acre, so that we may put down from £300 to £500 for the clearing. I know land in Gippaland that cost £20 an acre to clear. Then fencing will cost from £40 to £50 a mile. Then the land has to be supplied with water, drained, and graded for irrigation. If you grade in any part of Victoria that is not very level it will cost from £3 to £5. I have done a good deal of it on fairly level land, and it cost me from £3 to £5. Then there are buildings to be erected. Honorable members know that the price of roof...

The association knows no limits of country ,and provides for allI sorts and conditions of men. Danger has no terrors for it It does not bask in affluence nor seek power. That it does not seek wealth fie ob vious. It brings help to men when they most need it, and ministers to those in distress. It is a truly Chris tian mission translated into practical work. It goes to men In the battle line and ministers to them. It goen to men in strange countries amidst strange companions and makes them at home.

WHY GIRLS DON'T MARRY. Points Men Dislike. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

WHY GIRLS DON'T MARRY. Points Men Dislike. Although the war has made the wed ding bells ring, there are ttill plenty of girls who will remain "on the shelC" through their own stupidity. For instance, the haughty maid who ima gines that because she has got a good war job at three pounds a week that mnen are a superfluity. She'Il find her earning capacity reduced to thirt" shillings a week one day, and her touch-me-nottish airs will have wafted her on to the shelf. So with the iceberg. Her frigid airs keep away the men, for the aver age man would prefer to face a can non than the stony stare of a woman. Embarrassment is another barrier. and the girl who looks bashful, and blushes furiously when she sees a; man frightens him away. So with the girl who makes fun of everybody. The thought crosses tile mind of the man as to whether or not he if a butt for her wit when his back is turned, and very few men can stand ridicule Neither canl they stand too muchi brain in a woman. It makes them ...

Looking Before and After. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

Looking Before and After. When Shakespeare's "Hamlet" ruminates on our common human na ture he filxes upon the power of pre vision and revision as our distinctive attribute. The animals feed and sleep; their activities are bounded by their physical wants. Man is made with capabilities for "large discourse." His "godlike reason" ranges over the past and projects itself into the fu ture. He "looks before and after." Now most of the writers who have spun their webe of criticism about the text of this unique play have in terpreted the Prince of Denmark's own hints of irresolution as defining the personal tragedy. Is he not the finished type of the over-reflective man? Are not thinkers and scholars prone to dally with opportunities, to waste time in "brooding too precise ly over the event"? It eis a comfortable conclusion for the plain practical man to reach cer tainly, and there is much plausibility about it, since the Instances are many and various wherein men have miss ed the prizes o...

The day after her marriage the young bride wrote a lady friend: "My husband Is a fewel." Six months later she wrote the same friend: "I was deceived; the Jewel has turned out to be nothing but paste!" "'We treat our cook Just like one of the family," aaid Mrs. Gilfoyle. "We don't," added Mrs. Polndexter. "We don't dare. We are polite to our cook!"

Insurance Humor. The way in which application forms for insurance are filled up are often more amusing than enlightening, as the "British Medical Journal" shows in the following excellent selection of examples: "MIother died in infancy." "Father went to bed feeling well. and the next morning woke up dead." "Grandfather died suddenly at the age of 103. Up to this time he bid fair to reach a ripe old age." "Applicant does not know anything about maternal posterity, except that she fully recovered from her last ill ness." "Applicant has never been fatally sick." "Father died suddenly; nothing seri o0s." "Applicant's brother, who was an infant, died when he was a mere child." "Grandfather died from gun-shot wound,. caused by an arrow shot by an Indian." "Applicant's fraternal parents died when he was a child." "'[othor's last illness was caused from chronic rheumatism, blut she was cured before death."

District News. Beaconsfield Upper. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 7 September 1917

~Bistrit New~s, Beaconsfield Upper. A gruesome discovery was made by two boys who were bird-nesting while on their way to school on Tues day last. They were going through a patch of scrub near the road when they came upon the body of a man. The police were communicated with and in a short space of time Constable Lombard, of Berwick, and Dr Lang more, arrived on the scene, when an   examination of the body was made. Death must have happened about a   fortnight ago. The man was a stran   ger in the district; and it is thought   he was employed at the storage basin in the Haunted Gully. The body was clad in a blue jacket ae:. ,est with moleskin trousers, and appeared to be that of a man about 60 years of age. The doctor ordered the removal of the body to the Pine Grove Hotel, where a magisterial inquiry will be held. Up to the time of writing the body has not been identified.   Har.away.
