SUNSET: GOULBURN VALLEY [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
SUNSET: GOULBURN VALLEY By E. F. (Srr'PARTON). Snowy fleeces topped with gold Towards the sunset slowly rolled, Where a sky of faded blue Decket itself in every hue; And the son's departing rays Set the western clouds ablaze. On the silvery Goulbnrn River Golden bare commenced to quiver; And the kookaburras' laughter Came from gumtrees by the water, As a passing madcap breeze Told them tales of distant seas. peaks of mountains far away . Glowed with fire at close of day : Soon the ohadows cool and deep Covered them for rest and sleep : Faded then their fiery glow And they slop!, to dream of snow.

VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 7 May 1914
VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. TIuE revision of the electoral rolls for the Victorian Assembly has given some startling results No less than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists, an achieve ment which show a that the past Ministries were sadly parsimo nious, or that electoral officials gave sorry returns for money paid them. Politicians may amuse themselves by trying to 'apportion the blame as accurately, or as in accurately, as their personal in terests suggest; but the average elector, looking at the figures. finds other matter for serious concern. The'old roll gave the country elec torates 364,129 voters; the metro politan ;constituencies, 318,786, that is to say, the provinces were 44,313 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad; the population and, as a conse quence, the political strength of Greater Melbourne was a menace ; but the perfecting ot the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed. The metropolitan electorates have now 391...

THE RECENT EPIDEMICS OF SMALLPOX AND DIPHTHERIA Would certainly not have attained such proportions if the hygienic fact were more generally known that the dlisinfection of the mouth by a reliable and harmless antiseptic is a great pro tecting factor againsts all ailments where the infection is through the throat or respiratory tract. By putting 3 drops of SANDER'S EUCALPT EXTRACT, on a piece of loaf-sugar and allowing it to dissolve in the mouth that cavity is thoroughly dis infected. The volatile nature of SANDER'S EXTRACT makes it penetrate every crevice. SANDER'S EXTRACT is not nauseous nor de pressing like the common eucalyptus and possesses great antiseptic power. By using SANDER'S EXTRACT, you avoid the uncertain composition of the lozenge tyou have the benefit of the strongest antiseptic that can be used with safety, and the result-is protection from all iffeQtion.
