The JEna of the World. Speaking at a Seventh Day Adventists' gathering near Mel bourne, Pastor Evans took for his subject, " The Day of God's Pre paration." He said that , hot only. Seventh Day Adventists, but many others, were looking for a time of trouble to come upon all the world: Writers frequentl)' made mention of the great battle of Armageddon— that terrific struggle which they, un derstood would mark the end of human history. Others were look ing forward to the Millennium, hop im for a time when there would be a thousand years of peace . on the earth", "and'a period of contentment and happiness.

Foo*fth^lli A Junior Match. A match supposed to be between juniors of Bright and those of Myrtle ford was played on Friday afternoon . on Myrtleford ground. The result was an easy win for the visitors, several of whom could hardly be classed as juniors. The game was not an interesting one and the play in no wise brilliant, but this could hardly be expected so early in the season. The-scores at the various stages of the game were :— JPirpt.

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 21 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is well known that colors have different effects upon health. Some colors' may soothe—green, for in stance—and others, like yellow, dp the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. Red has always 'been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," hut also of feeding them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Holland (who,...

See It? Jones—They allow animals to be sent through the post now. Brown—Really! Jones—Yes; I've just received a let ter with a seal on it. The fare at. a certain boarding house was very poor. A boarder who had been there for some time, be cause he could not get away, was standing in the hall when the landlord rang the dinner-bell. Whereupon an old dog that was lying outside on a rug commenced to howl mournfully. The boarder watched him a little while, and then said— "What on earth are you howling for? You don't have to eat it!" Popularity depends on how well you treat your friends, and how often.

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. By a Hospital Nurse. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 21 May 1914

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. - By a Hospital Nurse. Ordinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means the most restful positions you can adopt, for, though they ease certain parts of the body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but it is most restful and good for you, so you may just as « ell do it when you are alone. . A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work-made it necessary for them to stand about " a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered. His patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not exact...

Intoxicants in Church. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 21 May 1914

Intoxicants in Church. At a convention of temperance workers in Sydney, a discussion arose as to whether the use of in toxicating wines should be used for | sacramental . purposes. It. was stated that certain sections of the , church would not be dictated to on such a subject. The Roman Catho lic Church would not appreciate such a dernaud, nor would the Church of England. The use of in toxicants for sacramental purposes was gradually being done away with. The chairman, Rev R. B. S. Hammond (Anglican) said he ' would on no account use intoxi cants in his church. Some of his church members had been reclaimed from the drink traffic, and he would not place drink to their Hps. It : was practically unanimously de cided not to exclude the use of in toxicants for sacrameutal purposes. A'temperance crusade throughout Victoria was initiated by Coadjutor Archbishop Mannix at South Mel bourne on Sunday.

A young gentleman, rising 50, and well worn at that, spent quite .a number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous '.young damsel laying her rank and Jortune at his feet. So he got on to .a "matrimonial agent."
