YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! .Dpmand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— 1 SANDER'S EXTRACT.

IMAGINARY HABITS* Performing one good action does aot make a good habit. Man}- per sons are self-deceived with regard tc habits. A man who has resolved to rise at six o'clock every morning, and has actually done so occasionally, is liable to complacently imagine that h' is in the habit of getting up at six We must not be content to think tha. an action performed once or twice it a habit, as one of the surest m&thodt of preventing the formation of a gooc habit is to proceed with the businesi of our life under the cheerful delusiot that we have that habit when we real ly have nothing of the sort, but onlj n spasmodic yearning for it and at empty dream about it.

DISCOVERIES BY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

DISCOVERIES BY ACCIDENT. The composition of which printing rollers are made was accidentally dis covered by a Salopian printer. Not being able to find the "pelt ball," he inked the type with a pieco of soft glue which had fallen frcm the glue-pot. It was such an excellent substitute that, after mixing molasses with the glue to give the mass a pro per consistency, the old pelt ball was antirely discarded. The augur with the twisted shank, which makes it self-discharging, is also the result of an accidental dis sovery.' The real screw augur is an American invention, dating back to :he year 1774, when John White and Benjamin Brooke, of Hammer Hollow, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, noticed some boys boring holes in the ground with some pieces of hoop-iron. Ona )f these, which had become twisted, was seen to bring up the dirt each :ime as it made a complete revolution. Being men of an observing turn of mind, White and Brooke began to de bate the possibility of constructing a :ool for boring...

THE SOURCE OF HAPPINESS [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 July 1914

THE SOURCE OF HAPPINESS We each o£ us possess within our selves tlie true source of hapj.iness. Enjoyment is contained in our imag ination, not in the book we read; in Dur appreciation of beauty, not in the picture: in'our musical culture, not in the instrument played. Our enjoy ment of Nature does not depend on the charm of our surrounding, but npon ourselves. Some men will find more joy in the prairie than others in the Alps, some more joy in the desert than others in the flowers and forests of fertile, lands. Is it the rich, the powerful^'!e popular, that obtain the greatest hapniness? We look about js and we know that this is not tru^ hough we ns if it were. 111 i.———
