wonderful healing. Za.m-Buk Promotes tub Growth op New Healthy Skin.—Clears Away Disease as if liy Magic. Zarr-Buk has brought the treatment of skin affections and injuries to a point of perfection never before realised. "Skin magic," in fact, is how Zam-Buk's hcal inir feats have been frequently des cribed. Nothing else known to Science has a more wonderful influence on an injured or diseased skin. Zam-Buk is a combination of pure ex | tracts, highly refined and concentrated. I It is in its unique composit:on, and its freedom from lard and all animal fats, that Zam-Buk differs so completely from common salves and ointments. And its repeated successes show how different it is in medicinal action. Every pot of Zam-Buk is acouce-itri , tion of the best healing properties , ready for instant use. j When Zam-Buk is applied to the skin, festering is stopped, inflammation and irritation allayed, sore places disappear I and new layers of healthy tissue grow. | Equally- invaluable is Zam-Bu...

The man did marry—the wrong woman. Ere long he had to sink all his sav ing# in divorce proceedings, and, sad der and wiser, he thought of a scheme for happiness. In his old firm there was a vacancy; lie wquld apply for it, and—for now he knew her worth— would woo and marry the lady clerk. The situation he obtained. Before time on .Monday morning he was back in the familiar office. Per haps she would be there early, too! Ho fouud a smart Htrauger before him, a clerk who volunteered: "I ex pect we shall bo a bit glumlike to day. We all attcuded our late lady ...

The Degree of Annoyance. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914

The Degree of Annoyance. The Kseiner, who -has apparently banned tUo "tango," has a. habit of gently tugging at his' loft ear when anything bothers him. One day, somo years ago. when he was on a visit to England, he was handed a telegram. The contents of the message apparently displeased lilm, for ho Immediately began tug ging at his ear. • The Prlnco of Wales, then a small hoy, watched tlio performance with considerable interest. "Uncle," lie said at length; "why are you pulling your ,ear?" "Because. I'm annoyed, I suppose," replied the Kaiser. "And when you'ro very annoyed," persisted the young Prince, "what do you do then?" "Then I pull somebody elso's!" an nounced His Majesty viciously. "You're terribly severe In your re ligion, Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdltlou, and no body will be saved but you and your minister!" "I'm not ao sure o' that," said Don ald, thoughtfully. "Ye ken,.

HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914

HISTOmC STAINS. Visitors to the famous castle of Wartburg, in Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. The room where this stain upon the wall Is shown was occupied by Martin Luther when he was a prisoner In this castle, and here he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The tradition is that Satan appeared to. him in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er, ills reply was to take up his Ink stand and throw It at his visitor's head. It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain which has been rever ently preserved ever slncc. Undoubtedly the most interesting room In Scotland is the (sleeping chamber of Mary Queen of Scots, In the l'alace of llolyrood, which still Blands as it was when she occupied It, The walls are hung with tapestry, aud half-covered by it is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret stair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Italian secret...

SING A SONG. If you'll slug a song as you go along In l he face of I ho real or the fancied wrong In face of th«s doubt, if you'll flglit It out, And show a heart thai Is brave and ctout; If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears, You'll lorco the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries, To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll' win success with a little song—-. If you'll sing the song as you go along. If you'll sing a song as you plod along You'll find ihat the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain; That the sun will follow the blinding raiu, That the clouds will fly from the blackened sky, That tbc stars will come out by-and bye, And you'll make new friends, till hope descends Krora' where the placid rainbow bends. And all (because of a little song— If you'll sing the song as you plod along, If you'll Blng a song as you trudge along You'll see that the singing will make you strong, And the heavy load, and the rugged...

The Leader USTICE TO ALL. Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, APRIL 25. "NOBLESSE OBLIGE." [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914

®fte leader JUSTICE TO ALU Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, AI'IUL 25. "NOBLESSE OBLIGE." The truism that "Rank imposes obli gation" stretches away back to copy book days, and .still presides, hoary with age, over the v.m'of civilisation. TJhe cAll is ever for men of mental stature to take charge of the onward march, and if the world produces half-a-dozen such minds in the course of a century, it does very well indeed. These are the tall poppies of the human field, and stand alone. But the management of the de tails of civilised life is parcelled among thousands and thousands of sub-divis ional commanders, soldiers of industry and commerce, all of whom must live up to their obligations to ensure harmoni* ous working of the whole. Each area or circle of man-elTort rests upon one below and supports another above, just as do the tiny globules composing a glass of water. The reward for good service in any department is that of elevation to a higher rank, carrying greater priv...

REJOICINGS ON THE HILL TOP. JAMES STREET SINGING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 25 April 1914

REJOICINGS ON THE HILLTOP. JAMES STREET SINGING. On Sunday last the scholars of the James street Presbyterian Sabbath school gathered on Northcoto's high place to sing, the little ones chiming their way during the day through the hearts of three crowded congregations. In the morning the Rev. W. H. Cooper, M.A., 13.D., presided, delivering an eloquent discourse. The afternoon saw an increased attendance, and the Rev. Stewart Byron in charge. The evening put pressure on the four walls and aisles without accommodating all who wished to gain admission. The scene was a beautiful and inspiring one, from 150 to 200 bright-faced, clean, bravely-attired youngsters facing the sea of faces fronting them. If during the day their singing had done them credit, the night's perform ance surely reached the high-water mark of anniversary minstrelsy, and the occasion was worthy the effort. There was an excellent orhecstru, consisting of violins, 'cello, cornet, reed and flutes. Miss Gertie Shands at t...
