FATHER AND SON CURED BY ZAM BIUK. Spreading Eruptions on Face and Head. Mrs. M. Batterson, 19 Howard Street, Leederville, Perth, W. A., says :-" Nasty eruptions broke out on the face and hands of my little boy Edward. The places became inflamed and as sores began to form the dis ease spread in an alarming manner. We tried the usual chemists prepara tions, but they failed to check the outbreak. " Then having heard so much about Zam-Buk we decided to give it a trial. The first few applications of of Zaip-Buk subdued all the inflama tion and thoroughly cleansed the sores. Edward seemed to get so much comfort from the balm that we eagerly persevered with the treatment. Now, thanks to the continued use of Zam-Buk, every one of Edward's sores have been so thoroughly cleared away, that no trace of the disease is to be seen. " My husband, too, used Zam-Buk as an embrocation when he strained his back. The balm took away all the pain and soreness, and made him quite supple and strong again. Z...

A hadoweLife CHAPTER V.-Continued. i "I do not offer one excuse for my conduct, Miss Wood, I v 1iav~e none; but perhaps when you hear the story of my youth and my wrongs, you may judge me mercifully. I must go back to the wrong done to my father l before me, in order that you may understand mine. ma My grandfather was a very wealthy man. He had but two children-my father, his eldest son, and my uncle Raymond, his second and best beloved. -His estate was not entailed, but my father, being the eldest was brought up to consider himself the heir. I cannot tell you how or why he and his father quarrelled, but they did 'so; and one day my father was turned ignominiously from Marston Manor, the home he had always thought would be his. The quarrel was a desper ate one, for the father snd son never met or spoke again. And when my graudfather died, he left the whole of his fortune to his second son Raymond; while to my. father, who had been brought up the heir, he did not leave one shilling. ...

FOR WOMAN'S EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
FOR WOMAN'S EYE. (By "Blue Bird.") A dainty pinafore dress of silk poplin sleeves and underskirt are of striped made with new pleated tunic. The sleeves and underskirt are of striped silk. Bordered materials are showing again, and a rather new idea is to use the actual bordering for the tight underslip of the skirt and the above tunic of plain mater lal, with a wide heat coming just to top of the border. A tunic effect can be simnulated too, if the bordered material be wide enough, by simply stitching a wide tuck along so that its lower edge overhangs the top of the border. In tailored suits there is a marked pre forence shown for military effects, braid, bugles, and brass buttons are all worn tremendously, in short anything that savours in the smallest degree of military wear becomes fashionable. The few cos tunics so far seen are made with smart little coats reaching just a few inches below the hips, the scams under the arm are cut slightly into the figure so as to show a curve at...

UNBRIDLED AMBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
UNBRIDLED AMBITION. "'In the case of the Kaiser, we have a iiature exceptionally endowed, with in tellectual faculties enough to have made him a good officer or public servant if lie had been born, in. private life. But his childhood and youth. were passed In the intoxication of the Prussian triumphs of 1800 and 1870,. which turned his head, until, Teutonic pride was. cubed; in his brain, at the same time that will power degenerated to. such a degree that it was. not equal to restraining, the abnormal growth of unbridled ambition.

CITY BEAUTIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
CITY BEAUTrJFICATION. "Wore St. Mary's other than a Cath olic Cathedral oven our Orange ifuns would have hailed-the suggested exchange of land-the Cathedral-street frontage for a scrap of-Phillip Park-with en thusiasmn, and the City Council would have -beea roundly denounced if: it had not favored an agreement that would make. beautiful an. ugly corner of 'the city. Suppose the bowling green, already in possession' of a slice of Phillip Park, had , wanted more of it---would there have been one voice raised lin protest? Suppose St. Mary's had been the Angl-' can Cathedral or a Methodist Conventicle would the "'Herald " and "Telegraph" have encouraged every. elownilsh bigot with an itch, for writing?

THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
THE DROUGHT. There's 3 wind that blows out of the south in the drought, And we pray for the touch of his breath, When siroccos come forth from the north west ,and north, Or in dead calms of fever and death. With eyes 'glad and dim iwe should sing him a hymn, For depression and death are his foes, And he gives us new life for the bread winning strife-. Whien the glorious southerljr blows. -Henry Lawson.
EVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
EVOLUTION. " A war of nations such as is raging now, is the greatest force for change that the worlr knows. It not only changes the outlines of kingdoms and territories and the political importance if the Powers involved, it changes the entire social life of the people. It changes character, it alters the economic value and relative importance of the two sexes, and it will leave its indelible mark on all future generations and na tional History."-Mrs. Bellingham, in London "Daily >fail.,

WORST CHARACTERISTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
WORST CITARACTERISTIU. "Snobbery should have a death-blow through the war, though the corpse will probably prove a lively one. Anyhow, just now our real nobility are in the trenches, and everyone feels that the House of Peers consists of those who risk their lives. It has really become grotesque to read of Lord This or Lady That, with the extraordinary prefix of *'The," which, by the by, is a German importation, whereas merit, strength, and personal unselfishness are the only things which count. If the war does this and nothing else, the gain will be gigantic, and we ought to be thainkful for even the smallest improvement in regard to one of our worst national weaknesses." Rer. Hugh Chapman, London.
WHERE WAS SANDY? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
WHERE WAS SANDY P The following story, the chief actor in which is still alive, would seem to justify the term "canny" sometimes applied to the Scot. An old retired Fifeshire farmer was from time to time called on and ad vised to insure his house against fire by an agent who was familiarly known as "Sandy.,' The old man, however, met the agent's advances with "Na, nal" fol lowing by what he doubtless considered a clinching argument. "My hoose is na ganging on fire, mont" The unexpected, however, happened, and the neighaours were astonished to see the old man, instead of trying to put out the fire, running up and down the village street, shouting: "Whaus's that man Sandy, noo? Whaur's that insurance chap? It's terrible we can never get a-body when ye're needing 'im! - -
