Agriculture and Grazing. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 January 1915
Agriculturlre and Girz uing. EVeN as between the avocations conducted on the land, has there not been a powerful dis crimination ? In the desire to promote wheatgrowing, the grazier has been very scurvily treated. If he really were the enemy of the race that some stump orators represent him, he could hardly have received less consideration. But in a country of vast spaces and nat ural grasses, grazing, for many years, will be a less precarious occupation than wheat growing. Under present conditions, we are confronted by a failure of both. Have we not, as a na tion, worked very hard to bring this about? Coincidently with a rapidly increasing demand, there has been a decline in the number of marketable animals available. Instead of railing against the wicked " squatter," and the " Trusts " that don't exist, would it not be wiser to take heed to the policy of the State, as calculated to encour age, or to discourage, the` pro duction of the necessaries of life ?

Indigestion CAUSED CONSIDERABLE SUFFERING. WONDERFUL RESULTS FROM A COURSE OF DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 January 1915
- CAUSE'D CONSIDERABLE SUFI-' FERING. WONDERFUL RESULTS FROM A COURSE OF DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS. : "After a severe attack of Rheuma=-,. tic Fever I was a martyr to Indiges t!on," writes Mr. George Samuel 'Pamplin, Greengrocer. of 200 Veston Road, :Rozello, N.S.W., "and my. on tire' system became deranged. * Headaches I had badly, and I would be constipated for a. week at a stretch. After eating, a heavy burn ing lump would settle in my chest; the pain was distressing, and I had -.a, stuffed up sensation as if I was clhoking. Through my Indigestion I was so incapacitated that I would have little or no rest for a week, and it was utterly impossible to perturm my duties. After taking Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills I was relieved of all signs of Indigestion; my bowels were soon put into perfect working order and they now act as regularly.. ! as they should. I find a decided im provement in my health. I have tried many medicines, but have found none as good a corrective as Dr. Mors...

Germany Feeling the Pinch. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 12 January 1915
Germiany Feeling m the Pinch. A GOraAx appeal for peace has been issued by a famous German firm, Darz Brothers, of Altona, near Hamburg, and is in striking contrast to the bragging tone of the German press and the German military party. 'The appeal was not issued in Germany, but was published in circular form, through Nor wegian channels, and is addressed as a mani festo to the peoples of the warring nations. It runs;--" The state of mind of at least a section of the German people has been im pressed by the checks Ithat the German armies have suffered. The universal war which has now lasted four months excites less and less even the nations engaged in it. The greater or less excitement produced by a victory meets only a culd reception when the frightful consequences of the war, that grows worse every day that passes; are thought of. 'his war is an insult towards God; a revolt against common sense, religion and humanity; mankind has fallen back again into barbarism, and all the well-...
