CARRAJUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914
CARRAJUNd. (From our own Correspondent). The annual ball given by the bachelors of Carrajung took place on Tuesday fright, and was very well patronised. Residents from the various little districts were present, and seemed to be highly satisfied with the hospitality ex tended to them by the local bache lors. Mr. Hawkins, of Buln Buln, supplied the music, and Mr. . G. Wight acted as M.C. The weather during the past week has been gloriously fine. A very good autumn growth has taken place since the burning ot this country a few months ago. Much good has been done in the destruction of rubbish throughout the district. The Railway Standing Commit tee will be present at Gormandale during the week, taking evidence' in regard to the construction ot a developmental line to that place. With such a splendid gathering; ground lying at the back ot Gor mandale, it seems almost a cer tainty of "the proposal catching the committee's eye. No interest is taken locally in the visit of that body. The 'm...

EARLY TRARALGON. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914
EARLY TRARALGON. To the Editor. . Sir,-The forthcoming demoli tion of such an historic landmark Traral&9n Hotel has evo ked many^ reminiscences as to its early history. This hotel has occupied such a prominent place lt.1 Traralgon, and has been so closely identified with its growth and progress,that any details con cerning its earlier history become of interest. I shall therefore add a few hastily written notes to the general stock. In your last issue it is stated that the hotel was established in (1858. Although not certain, yet i am under the impression that it was some years earlier. In the matter of dates, memory is prover bially unreliable, unless supported by documentary evidence. Yet if my recollection serves me right, I there used 'to be a sign board over the building 30 years ago, on which the .words Established in 1855, used to appear. This point, therefore, is one on wluch further information may be forthcoming. was built by JYlr. Duncan Campbell, yet he re~ tamed...

OW TO CHECK A COUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914
OW TO CHECK A COUGH. " i . j not usually supposed that any of the will power can be made efficient in checking a cough or a sneeze, but a celebrated doctor says sneezing can be stopped bj pressing on the nerve of the lips in the neighbourhood of the nose. Coughing may be stopped by slight pressure in front of the ear. This will also stop hiccoughing. Pressing very hard- on the top- of the "mouth is also a means of stopping coughing, and many will say the will alone has Immense power. There are various other affections associated with breathing, which can be stopped by the same mechanism that stops the heart's action. In spasm of the glottis, which is a terrible thing In children, and alsG In whooping cough, It is possible to afford relief by throwing cold water on the feet, or by ticltling the sofes of the feet, which produces laughter, and at the same time arrests the spasm almost at once.
TOONGABBIE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 12 May 1914
TOONGABBIE RACES. As briefly- stated in last issue, the Toongabbie races on Thurs day last were most successful from every point of view, and the best the club have had for years, and it would appear that the club has entered upon a more vigorous career. The committee made an effort to get a real good meeting, and being ably backed up by the secretaries, the veteran Mr. J. W. Gales, and the experienced Mr. W. Heywood, there was an un precented number of horses on the ground. Fancy an entry of 70 horses. One regular follower of races was ihieard to say that the Toongabbie club had treated the horse owners very well, and they determined to return the compli ment. It was also said that the meeting would be quite as good as the Maffra meeting on Thurs day. The fields were large; lar ger in fact, than we generally see at country meetings:-12 in the Trial, six in tfie Handicap, 8 in the Pony, seven in the Brace let, and 13 in the Novelty Pony, and three in the last race, the Flying Handic...

LONGER AGO THAN YESTER DAY. Yesterday is not long ago, but three years is. To have been cured long ago, and to have been well ever 'since surely means a permanent cure. Read What this man has to say about it: Mr. James H. Brereton, Munro street, Traralgon, says:-" Any one who requires a sure remedy for kidney trouble cannot do better than get Doan's "Backache Kid ney Pills,'^nd I speak from experi ence, as they completely cured me. For a long time* I was a martyr to backache, and the pain was generally very severe, and it was only with the greatest diffi culty thaf. I was able to get about to do my work. I always felt tired and suffered a lot from, headachcs. The kidney secretions were thick and cloudy, and my rest at night was very disturbed indeed. How ever, I was recommended to try a course of Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills, which I did, and I am pleased to say that in a very short space of time' all these distressing symptons left me. I am quite well now,.thanks to Doan's Back ac...

WHY YOUR STOMACH HURTS A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 15 May 1914
WHY YOUR STOMACH HURTS "A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSl ADVICE: Pain in the stomach, variously., called indigestion, dyspepsia, flatu lence, heartburn, stomach ache, etc., is usually attributed to some unnatural, abnormal cr diseased condition of the stomach. Nothing could be further lrom the truth. Nineteen'times outsof twenty the stomach is absolutely healthy and normal, the pain and discomfort being entirely due to the acidity and fermentation of food which irritates and distends the stomach -although if this condition is al lowed to run on, in time the con stant irritation of the acid is very likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce ulcerf, and sometimes cancer of the stoma :h. Medicine is useless in such a case. ? The acid .and fermenting food-must be removed by a stomach pump or an emetic, or you must neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taking half a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little wa ter. This latter is by tar the sim pler and safer method. Bisurate...
