INSTANTLY STOPS DIGESTIVE PAIN,' About ninety-five per cent, of those who suffer from indigestion are really suffering from acidity, and their pain results from the effects of the harmful stomach acids. To check this there is nothing so effective as Bisurated Magnesia, which positively gives instant relief, yet is quite harm less. Doctors prescribe Bisurated Magnesia for stomach and digestive troubles, hospitals use it, and thou sands who have tried it in New South Wales unite in praising it. This firmly-established preparation is ob tainable from all chemists in both powder and tablet forms at very low prices, and stomach sufferers are advised to avoid the consequences of neglect by getting a package without delay. See the Bismag sign on the package when buying, ond you'll know you've got the world's beBt remedy.*

He said, 'Some women in every age drank liquor, e few even enjoyed a smoke, many uf them threw away their honor, but the word has never known tho turning loose of such an army of hard-drinking, cigarette puffing, licentious Amazons as walk our streets and invade our colleges to-day.' Dr. Smith described the daughters of the 'best people' as coming to dances scantily clothed, but abund antly painted and with a bottle of liquor in a hand bag. j

OTHER PEOPLE'S VIEWS. ANZAC DAY. The Editor, Tfae Mail. ~ ~ Sir, — On behalf of iih'e Bowral sub-branch R.S. and S.f.L . of A;, I would like to take this opportunity of replying to the criticism of your correspondent, who is evidently ashamed of his name, and who has sighed - -himself 'Only One of the Public.' In the first place I would like to say that he is either , not a Digger, or else if he is, he occupied some position behind the line, where shells were- unknown, and where he 'lost none of his cobbers, and because he must have been either one of the foregoing, therefore, he knows no thing of the real spirit of Anzac. He says that certain of the Bowral Diggers rushed off to -a smoke con cert at Moss, Vale immediately : the memorial service was over here. If he had taken the trouble to get par ticulars, he wpult) Ijeve found that rather than being a smoke' concert in the ordinary acceptance of ' the word,, it was « meeting of men tg perpetuate the memory of Anzao, that sacrej pg...

ROADS—ROADS—ROADS! In [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 16 May 1924

ROADS— ROADS— ROADS! In season and out of season we must stresi'the need' for-rcal roads. The -art of road making was a lost art in the last generation. In Roman times they made roads — roads with foundations — roads that lasted. Wc simply cover over the earth with a flimsy skin of metal and miscall it a I road. But tlie world1 is learning that there is no more wasteful method of expending public funds than in mak ing bad roads. Road traffic to-day is so much heavier than in last cen tury that what served then iB utterly useless now. To bear ipodorn traffic roads must have foundations. Road-making for modern traffic is a costly business. Wc must realise that. But go.od roads arc durable and the cost may fairly be spread over a number of years.~.if wc make a foad that will need re-making in a vear then we should t-ny for it in u year. But if we make a road that will last for fifty years, its cost may fairly be spread over fifty years. *' If we had waited to build railways until they ...
