I had splitting headachos, from which I was hardly ever tr.ee. My appetite was very poor, and when I did eat I experienced hot flushes In the head, and oftentimes heartburn would oc cur. I tried various medicines in th8 hope of finding a cure, but they were all hopelessly ineffective in my case. I then decided to try a course of War ner's Safe Cure, and very soon dis co vared that I had found the right medicine for my complaint. I began to improve after *aking the first bot tle of the medicine. I continued to take It for some little time, when all bad symptoms disappeared.

RUSSIA'S WONDER METAL. It is More Valuable Than Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

RUSSIA'S WONDER METAL. It is More Valuable Than Gold. Our gallant ally, Russia, is rich in one of the lilgliest-priced and, at tlio present moment, the most eagerly sought of all minerals. This is platinum, a rare white metal, the value of which has been steadily rising these many years past, until now it is worth about three times as much as fine gold. Last year, despite tile war, Russia produced six tons of crude platinum, or nearly four-fifths of the world's sup ply. It is found only in the Ural Moun tains, where it occurs in the form of alluvial deposits brought down by the ice-fed torrents in summer: The peas ants raise the platinum-bearing gravel from the river-beds by means of large buckets attached to long poles, a pri mitive and laborious form of mining, but one which is very effective. In ordinary times platinum is chiefly used for crucibles, articles of jewel lery, and for tipping fountain-pens. But at present the whole of the availahlo supply is wanted by the munition wo...

Our Stafte Government. RETRENCHMENT BADLY NEEDED [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

Our Stafte Government. RETRENCHMENT BADLY NEEDED . Now that we are right in the thick of the great war, and as the cry is put forth on every aide to curtail expenditure and re duce the wastage to a minimum, it is only reasonable to suppose tlmt our State Government would be the first to put its Bhoulder to the wheel and ascertain what could be done in that direction. To keep up the luxurious sinecures of parliament thousands of pounds are annually ex pended which could be spent to much better advantage in prosecuting the war. The total cost of our State porliament is i£50,833, IesB i'860 which is recouped by the Commonwealth for library. The members of parliament receive £17,100, the Ministers £8400, whilst the officers of parliament cut up £11,789 amongst them. Although the Legislative Council meet on only 30 or 40 days a year it has a practically unknown number of officers of all grades whose salaries range up to .£1200 a year.

A Soldier's Testimony. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

A Soldier's Testimony, At a recent Y.M.C.A. Melbourne weekly strangers' tea, a soldier rose to speak: "My name is --. I have just come back from Egypt. You have no idea of what the Y.M.C.A. is doing for the boys out there. When at Tel-el-Kebir I was blind owing to the sand and glare from the sun. There was only one place to go-theY.M.C.A. They are the best friends the soldiers have. The Y.M.C.A. canteen is a great boon, where soldiers can get goods at cost price, also refreshments. It is just splendid to be able to get a cup of tea or some limejuice during the heat of the Egyptian desert. There is no doubt the Y.M.C.A. is out to help the soldiers. The huts and marquees are used by all denominations. While I was at Tel-el-Kebir there were 16,000 soldiers there. It was just amazing how the boys would pack into the Y.M.C.A. Hall. Those sing I songs were just fine. The audience outside the Y.M.C.A. was bigger than the one inside. I have seen as many as 4000 men at such a sing-song. Our ...

Repatriation Funds. VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN PROMISED. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

Repatriation Funds. VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN PRO MISED. WORK on the repatriation scheme has been almost entirely submerged by the referendum campaign work during the past week, but a vigorous prosecution of the appeal is promised for the immediate future. The chairman of the State War Council (Mr Donald Mackinnon) said on Saturday that even during the time the referendum work had been in progress, various district bodies, including councils, had given increasingly valuable assistance in matters which had demanded local knowledge. There was no doubt that for the time being the proposed wealth tax had effected the view of many people re garding the funds for repatriation, and the fact that the proposal included the exemption from taxation of voluntary con tributions had not been fully appreciated. There must be a vast reservoir of help among citizens who would have prac tically no tax to pay, and who were anxious to help in the wor.t that was ahead. He hoped that there would be an ex tension...
