Indigestion. The following letters oontaln mat ter o£ Interest to sufferers from Indi gestion. From Mr. George Franklin (ex-De tective-Sergeant),, 129 Bathurst street, Hobart, Tas. "About ten years ago I suffered severely from dyspepsia and indiges tion, and tried several doctors in or der to obtain relief, but none of them succeeded in benefiting me. Eventually, I went to Melbourne and consulted an eminent doctor in that city. After he had treated me for a month he advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. After I had taken one bottle of Warner's Safe Dure I felt wonderfully eased, my appetite came back, and I was able to eat and en joy my meals, which fhad not done for years. I took, altogether, about ten bottles of Warner's Safe Cure, and can confidently say that my cure was due to that medicine. I have not suffered since." From Mrs. Dora McDonald, 27 Mc Cracken-street, Kensington, Vic. "I was a great sufferer for many years from indigestion, severe head aches, nervous prostration an...

WIN THE WAR, OR THE ELECTION, WHICH? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

WIN THE WAR, OR THE ELECTION, WHICH ? TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-The amazing claim of Or. Hodge, of Beechworth, as reported in your iaano of the Gill inst., that ho was responsible for putting Mr Moloney in Parliament, reminds one o£ the old English King who persisted in telling Wellington that lie defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. Not withstanding all the dirt ihat one coun cillor has thrown up, Maloney in gime enough to face his electors, and that is more than Mr Hughes can do. By force of habit, -such men rarely apeak the truth, and it is no surprise that disloyalty is flung et his party just now. While Cr. Hodge has one aon at tho front, many leaders of the party have from 2 to 5, and are ]ust as loyal as he or the "Bulle tin," who seam to have recovered all their loyalty since tho outbreak of war. Scaremongers accused Andy Fisher of the same a few years ago, when preparing for our marine defence. No men over heard Maloney say that reinforcements ?^ere not necessary, and that statement is...

Had Seen the World. No, said the young man with the bulging brow, "I never accept any in vitations to play nap in a company where there are to be any strangers." "Afraid of them?" . "Yes. That is to say, I Jim afraid of their opinion. If I lose they laugh and think I'm a greenhorn; and if I win they wonder whether I'm a sharper.'' A little boy jyas reading in his Scottish' history an account of the Battle of Bannockburn. He read as follows: "And when the English saw the new army on the hill behind, their spirits became damped." The teacher asked the boy what was meant by "damping: their spir its." The boy, not comprehending the meaning, simply answered: "Pittin' water in their whusky."

'Australian Women In War Time." Osb.,0£ the most cheering instances amongst all that iB so depressing in connection with the war, is the way oar Australian women have risen to the occasion, and the evidence they have BO abundantly shown of their capabili ties, in this time of strain and stress. Apart from the bravery, wives, mot hers, sisters and sweethearts hava shown, wh?n called upon to give up those who are near and dear (o them. Concealing their heart-agony under brightness and smiles, our women have never ceased to give their time, money, and energy towards the providing of things that comfort and cheer those who have gone forth at their country's call. When the com plete history of what.our women havp accomplished in the way of providing necessaries and comforts to our soldiers is written, it will be a noble volume, glowing with tales of self-sacrifice and love, and proving that here, as in other lands, the real " grit" of our British Btock is easily apparent.

Amazing Salaries. Harry Lauder, it is said, is to get £500 a week and a share of the pro fits of the new theatrical venture in which he has been engaged to appear. He has had over £1600 for one week's work in Scotland. Caruso is believed to have made a steady £40,000 a year for years past. And Charlie Chaplin, the film favorite, with his minimum of £2000, still leaves all the other stars behind him. Yet it is not so very long since a Cabinet Minister's salary seemed a really big thing, and "Tom my" is risking life and limb for a shil ling a day.
