IS A NEW WOMAN "I was subject to colds on the chest," says Mrs. Cecilia Coyne, Wellington St., East Perth, W.A. "and knowing how serious that class of cold is tried every remedy that I thought would benefit me, but without results. I had begun to despair when I was recommended Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. After taking a couple of bottles of Chamber lain's Cough Remedy I began to feel a new woman and now would not be with out it in the house." Sold at F. Dam you's Pharmacy, Mortlake.

Forbes, C. Hilderbrandt, W. J. T. Arm strong, R. W. Cumming. Weighers, Messrs. Cooper and Rimmer. Secretary, Mr. T. Claridge. Under particularly favorable circumstances the annual meeting of the Hexham Racing 'Club eventuated on Saturday. In every respect the meeting was a success. The racing was of an in teresting nature, whilst the prin cipal requirements for good racing —good fields—was the order of tho day. Although the nominations did not nearly approach that of last year, yet the starters for every race were more numerous, which indicated that every nomination was genuine. To patrons of racing that is very gratifying as too often a good nomination is put forth to lure people to the course, only to be sadly disappointed in finding that the fields are mediocre. The racing track, despite the a...

Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 March 1914

"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 25 March 1914
"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25. Published Wednesday and Saturday To those who watch affairs in Vic toria the present outlook indicates serious trouble ahead. Not since the period of the great land boom of twenty-five years ago has there been such a congestion of the life of the State at the centre. Not withstanding all the Government has been attempting to do for the country districts the people are steadily leaving rural for city in dustries. The extensive irrigation schemes which were to do so much are not all they have been cracked up to be, and the money laid out on them is not now worth twenty shillings in the pound. All this seems quite natural when one reflects on the manner in which the whole State is run by and for the benefit of the people of Melbourne. Half of the popula tion of the State is grouped round the meeting place of Parliament, and personal influence is still an important factor in our political life. The man on the spot always has an advantage over the man ...

CHASE FOR WING-MAN. FOOTBALL, CLUB'S QUEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914
CHASE FOR WING-MAN. FOOTBALI, CLUB'S QUEST. Filled witli great joy Mr. William Lohse, secretary of the Richmond Football Club, listened to a glow ing recital by a vice-president • of the club regarding the prowess of a wing-man who, it was suggested, might be secured for the club. It is at this season that League secretaries engage in a strenuous competition with the best of the offerings in players for the approaching season as prizes. Many ate the tales that are told of "budding" • champions who are tried only to fail lamentably. But as the vice-president described his "find." and spoke of his abilities Mr Lohse resolved to put forward a special effort to secure him. "We are well served with M'Cashney and Morgan on the wing, and we can hardly think of shifting them," said Mr. Iyohse,* "but we will place him elsewhere. " "Wait till you see him.," return ed the vice-president. "I will stake my hotel that on what I have seen with my own eyes there is not a better wing-man in the coun...

CARAMUT'S POSSIBILITIES. WHAT IT NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 March 1914
CARAMUT'S POSSIBILITIES, j WHAT IT NEEDS. Caratnut is a compact township, and one of the prettiest little towns in our district. The pioneers were good town planners, for as the re sult of their keen foresight, Caramut is blessed with wide thoroughfares, whilst the situation of the town is on a commanding site overlooking the valleys on the south." Tree planting must have been carried on on an extensive scale in those early pioneering days as the township is thickly studded with pinus insignus and gums, which bear indication . of having weathered many a storm. And it is to the trees that Caramut owes its picturesqueness. It is its chief outstanding beauty, as is the case of every town. Tree planting is a lesson in itself, and should be practised more and more, not only for its ornamentation and general utility, but as a national asset. For many many years Caramut has been slumbering, due no doubt to the fact of its close proximity to so many large estates. But it is on the era of a ...
