COMMON ILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 28 April 1914
COMMON ILLS. If you feel a disagreeable pressure in the forehead nbovo tlio eyes, connected with attacks of dizziness and loss el app,etite, the cause is simply dissordor of j'oiir stomach- This only requires 9 short hunger cure. If the pain in tlio forehead is very violent,. and accompanied by fever, it is a symptom of something more severe, and you should consult a physician at once. A lasting pain, in the head, without dizziness, fever, etc., indicates some thing wrong with the lungs. If you have frequent pains in the back of the head, you should have your liver, ex amined, thereby preventing perhaps a long illness A stinging, boring pain indicates anaemia, while a violent headache in ono side of the head is a sure sign of nervous prostration, which may bo remedied by absolute rest for several "hours in a quiet, dark room.

THE PET RAVEN All the old crumbling castles on the Khine have romantic stories told about them. One of the most interesting- is about a brother and sister cijjled Oth mar and Willeswind, who were rescued from danger by their pet raven. When Othmar was a half-grown lad he had to go to war, along with all the other men of the castle and tho village, so that Willeswind was left with only the old men and women to taive care of her. Othmar told her to be very careful about letting strangers into the-castle, and Willeswind was at first but as time went on she grew cureless.

On the way he was robbed of his money by a band of gipsies, but this did not discourage him. He con tinued his journey, gained the scholar ship, and was thus enabled to study at the college.
ESTIMATE OF JEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 28 April 1914
ESTIMATE OP JEWS. According to "The Jewsish Chronicle," the Rev Isidore Harris, M.A., in the forthcoming issue of the "Jewish Year Book," states that the world's Jews now number 13,052,840. Previous estimates have been con siderably below the actual figures, owing to .the adoption of the 1897 census figures for Russia (5,215,805). The latest census returns tor Russia are 6,094,415. Thus the vast exodus of Jews in recent times from the (Jzar's dominions has been more than offset by the' internal growth of Russian Jewry.
