Read her letter: CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "Until two years ago I followed my profession of LADIES NURSE, residing then at Mt. Perny. Overwork brought on a TOTAL COLLAPSE OF MY NERVOUS SYSTEM. I was treated by several doctors, but grew worse, and became so low and suffered so much that I despaired of ever being well again; in fact, ONE DOCTOR SAID THE END WAS VERY NEAR; and, indeed, I ONLY LONGED FOR THE HOUR WHEN I WOULD BE AT PEACE.

-BACCHUS MARSH. By W. WIuIAMs, B.A. No. 51. Coimadai once more. Coimadai March,. 23rd, 1i872, celebrates the opening of its new school-house. It is recorded that 200 were represen ted, which was stated to be some thing that had never occurred in the history of Coimnadai before. The in evitable tea nmeeting, peculiar to a past generation, was held. Our fore fathers believed that while . there could be "the feast of reason and the flow of soul," every individual also had his "innards," which needed replenishing. Our forefathers be lieved in edifying the mind but fortifying the body. The crowd was great. From the ranges waybacks tumbled in, the means of locomotion being the bullock waggon, or ordin ary dray, perhaps with wheels dis tinctly painted, and cushions on seats-bags bf chaff. Alas, in those days no motor bikes, or motor cars! Are we- the better or the happicr with our higher civilisation? How ever, I must proceed with the ac count of the opening df Coimadai's new seminary. Mr....

MILITARY CAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 28 August 1915
MILITARY CAMPS. As some of the military camps are at present overcrowded, the Defence Department could not find a better outlet for a few thousand men than on the Bacchus Marsh racecourse, where there is 306 acres (more or less) of high, well-drained land. It also has the big, advantage of the main railway line running past it, with a station on its boundary; and is mid-way 'between Melbourne and Ballarat-about 1- hours' journey from either place. The only draw back it has is the water supply, sand this could be overcome by pumping the supply from either the Werribee river or the 'town service reservoir. A rifle range is now being laid out on the property, and this would be handy for the training of recruits in rifle shooting. The Common wealth Government has' also acquired the area of land immediately behind this range, which could be added to the Camping ground, and thus leave the flat portion of the racecqurse for manoeuvres. Mr. A. T. Ozanne, M.H.R., might bring this site under ...
