Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

Good Advice. There are thousands of people who suffer from common ailments, such as who have no idea that their suffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver. The reason that treatment by Warner's Safe Cure has been so successful in cases of the disorders named is that Warner's Safe Cure exercises a spe cific healing and stimulating influ ence upon the kidneys and liver. Once the kidneys and liver are re stored to health and activity, the uric and 'biliary poisons, which cause the disorder, are removed from the system by the natural channels, and pain, due to the retention of the poi sons, ceases. A descriptive pamphlet ■will be sent post free by H. H. Warner and Co.

ABOUT THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

ABOUT THE HORSE. The Arabian National Stud Book, Vol. 1, has been published in Amer ica, and ^Sir Walter Gilibey has writ ten the. preface, in which he states that up to the present time more than 4000 distinct works, in various lan guages, have been devoted to the horse, and among these are nearly ninety in Arabic and Persian, which are specially devoted to the Arab breed. The history of the horse shows that there have been two distinct types in Britain since the time of Julius Caesar. This breed of horse was the anxious care of Parliament from a date prior to the time of King John; and it is noted that the weight a riding horse of this type had to bear, with its mail-clad rider and the plate armor .with which it was protected, might be upwards of 4cwt.( or 32 j stone.

How to be happy on wash day: use Sunlight Soap THAT'S Y/HAT MOTHER USES aarszanaBKn HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor": — Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.

DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

DAIRYING. • COWS AND FERTILITY. On all pastures where cows and young stock have been grazed for many years without special means being taken to restore the losr. of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse grass and weeds on damp, rushy grounds, and on clay land pastures, an application of 5 cwt. per acrs will lie found to pro duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. Tho remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such an application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phosphatic and calcic manures give to th:s class of plants. White clover throws out suckers and is of a creepir-j natare, from which it derives it» botanical name of repens. That the plant ex isted in a weak and sparse condition previously cannot bo doubted, but a (hes'dnp o2 phosphate of lime causcs an unwonted development and vigor ous growth of bocii wh't.3 clover and other leguminous plants.

Pity the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

Pity the Editor. "What's the matter?" inquired the foreman as he entered the sanctum for copy, and noted the editor's swol len forehead, puffed red eye and tat tered, dusty coat. "Did you fall down stairs?" "No—only that," replied the editor, pointing with his finger to a para graph in the paper before liim. "It's . in our account of the Crapley-Smitli wedding. It ought to read: 'Miss Smith's dimpled, shining face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strong, bold physiognomy.' But see how it was printed." And the foreman read: "Miss Smith's pimpled, skinny face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strange, bald physiognomy." "Crapley was in here just now," concluded the editor sadly.

When tea was first introduced into Europe, about a couple of hundred years ago — anyhow, long before my time — it was told'in chemist's shops, and was thought to be a cure for every thing from a broken leg to a pimple on one's nose—of course, they didn't know much about tea then—to-day, however, it is thoroughly well known as the nicest and the most wholesome of all beverages — it stimulates and brightens one up without causing the slightest after i!i effect, and 1 know of nothing in my shop that 1 can say the same thing of. Chemists are great tea drinkers 1 —1 suppose it's because we've always got to have our wits about us, and because we know there's nothing nicer or better that we can drink. In my own home we always use the R o b u r No. 1 Grade, and very nicc tea it is—it has a delightful flavour, and gives us great satisfaction. The Chemist.

LOYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

LOYALTY. / found tliee false, and at Truth's shrine No more I kneel a devotee. All lies I'll pledge in golden wine, If I may drink the toasts with thee. —Edith Hulbert Hamilton in The "Smart Set." Mr. Lloyd George has been telling I some stories bearing on his own un-* popularity with his political oppon-' enta. One of them is about a man who was presented with a testi monial for saving someone from drowning. The hero modestly depre cated the praises showered upon him. "Really, I have done very little to deserve this reward," he said. '"I saw the man struggling in the water, and, as no one else was by, I knew he would be drowned if I didn't save him. So I jumped in, swam out to him, turned him over to make sure that he wasn't Lloyd George, and ttjen pulled him out." Nothing that happens to you need be so unlucky but that, with prudence, you may draw some advantage from it. Blessings appear not till they have vanished.

Two Letters. From Mr. Myles Henry Seward, I Myleswood, Whittington P.O., via ' Geelong, Vic. , "I suffered for a considerable time j from kidney complaint. I had agon- j ising pain i;~ -ny back and under tlie j shoulder blades, especially during I change of weather. My urine was , often filled with deposits the color of brick dust. My appetite was very poor and digestion imperfect. I had very severe headaches and prostra tion. Various medicines I tried .fail-,, ed to benefit me until I tried War- j ner's Safe Cure.

PEN-POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

PEN-POINTS. None are so blind as those who can not SPP. It takes a good deal of philosophy to take things as they come, but it requires more to part with things as they go. All women are two-faced—'before preparing their toilettes and after. Truths 'which have to be whispered are usually false. Heights, whether physical or men tal, usually induce dizziness. The Austin Hospital for Incurables, the one institution in the State which undertakes the careful tending and the tender relieving of the most piti able cases of physical human suffer ing which "can possibly be conceived. What that endurance must .be is not possibly known to the outsider. There are bald facts that cover a world of hidden meaning. Sooner or later the strain becomes too much for those who work in the hospital, and a 'breakdown comes. The nerves go; no 'woman can stand for very long the sight of the ghastly torture of the cancer wards, and the utter hopeless ness of the fight where pain and death must inevitably be ...

THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What Is Farm Management? [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What Is Farm Management? What is farm management? How is it to be applied to farm problems as a method of work in their solution? If it is not a definite method of solving farm problems, it is not "worth while to pursue its study. The term has a definite significance; it is a distinct method of attacking individual farm problems. It signifies a well-ordered business; a clearly-defined system of conducting farm operations under a particular set of conditions. There is no more important problem before the farmers in this State than that of mak ing his farming more profitable. This cannot be done without a more com plete and detailed knowledge of the business 011 individual farms. How does farm management help us to this knowledge? Farm manage ment in a word is the application of sound principles, good judgment and economic rules to the business of farming. In order to emphasize the importance of profit and to ensure the securing of a reasonable amount of ...

COMMON-SENSE AND COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 11 April 1914

COMMON-SENSE AND COWS. | Some especially cheerful idiot has I lately proposed that in order to in sure a larger supply of beef, and cheaper prices for steaks and roasts, it should be enacted that no calves may be killed for veal. Not a little soramendation has been extended to this idea; as if the Government can properly regulate such a thing liy law! It would be just the same to try to increase the supply of eggs by de creeing that nobody should kill a chicken. Suppose it worked, and the price of eggs came down the price of poultry would go up corresponding ly, and there would probably be more economic loss than gain. Bossy doesn't get a fair share in the current discussion of her failure to maintain the national meat sup ply. In the first place, she is under the necessity of furnishing milk to the increasing population of cities and towns. A cow that is meat can not also be milk; in fact, a cow that is bred and designed for meat is without much value for milk. They have recently r...
