A Master Baker SPEAKS ; OF THE WORTH OF So ill his friends scarcely knew him and he went to the Melbourne Hospital. A friend recommended Clements Tonic, and that saved him This letter has been recorded because of its great ernestness, and the way the writer, Mr. Holliday, expresses his sufferings and recovery. It shows what Clements Tonic can do. Mr. Holliday writes from his business address, 113 Madeline Street (Bakers. Patent Peel Factory), Carlton, Melbourne,' 19/5/11. CLEMENTS TONlC LTD., ""I am glad to tell you wbat.Clements Tonic did for me. A year ago I was so ' ill from bad liver and nervousness. I blamed overwork, and a ruth of orders.

BYRON'S DEFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914

BYRON'S DEFORMITY. When, with the severity o£ human opinion we judge the poet Byron Tor his small vanity, and, indeed, for his vices, we should charitably remember that his nature was warped through a cruel affliction. He loved beauty with all his heart and soul, and his own deformity, which was not only lameness, but ug liness o£ the limb, was very bitter to him. He had "the form and face of an Apollo, with the feet and legs of a satyr." One day, after a bath, he held out his leg to a friend who was with liini, and said: ( "1 hope this accursed limb will be knocked off in the war!" "It won't improve your swimming," said tlje other. "I'll exchange legs with you, if you will give me a part of your brain." "You would repent of the bargain," said the poet morosely. Lemons will keep a long time if covered "Witt cold water.

CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914

CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made o£ hair, and not on any account of feath ers.

WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. We deplore tlie fact that, because of the fearful extravagances of modern society, many of our best people con clude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us. They go through life lop-sided. Half-dressed, they sit around sewing on buttons, and darning socks, and then go down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity ! them at all. May all their buttons be off to-inorrow evening! Why do they ■ not set up a plain home of their own and come into the Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon as a great horror. Why, dear friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity, it is very easy to support a wife if she be of the kind worth supporting. If she bo educated into false notions of refine ment, and have "young Indies' Col lege" piled on her head till she "be , an" imbecile, ...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Tie a piece of lemon on a corn every night Cor five nights, and it will generally cause it to drop out. Honey and glycerine, mixed in equal proportions, is an excellent re medy for cracked lips. It should be applied every night till the cracks ar>j thoroughly healed. When a cup of strong tea is re quired, instead of putting an extra spoonful into the pot, add a spoonful of sugar. This opeus the leaves of the tea, and makes the tea stronger. A mixture that will remove grease from the finest fabrics is made of one quart of rain-water, two ounces of am monia, one teaspoonful of saltpetro, and one ounce of shaving soap cut up very fine. If at any time you have a gathered finger or poisoned hand, take a cab bage leaf, roll it out with a bottle un til the juice comes, and tie it on the affected part. This will draw and cleanse it far better than a poultice. Lemons may he kept a long l.'me without becoming dry if put into a jar of water with a lid. The water should be ...

CORNS AND BUNIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

CORNS AND BUNIONS. An American doctor recommends that the following mixture should be applied to corns and bunions for Ave or six days—Resorcin, one gramme; salicylic acid, one gramme; lactic acid ten grammes; flaxible collodion, ten grammes. At the end of the five or six days a footbath should be taken, and, the affocted part being then gent ly scraped, the collodion will be re moved and bring away tho corn with it. If necessary, the treatment may bo repeated. We must set before ourselves the highest possible standard of conduct; we must nim at the bull's-eye, as a marksman does. We may often get only an outer, or maybe miss the tar get altogether, but lot us always aim at the bull's-eye. Mrs. Clarke came running hurried ly into her husband's office one morn ing. "Oh, Dick!" she cried, as she gasp ed for breath. "I dropped my diamond ring off my finger, and I can't find it anywhere!" "It's all right, Bess," replied Mr. Clarke. "I came across It In my trou sers-pocket."

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER i CHAPLAIN. There is nothing that produces a feeling of speedy death quicker than sea-sickness. It is very rarely that anyone actually succumbs to it, but if a person suffers from It badly it is dif ficult to drive homo the fact that re covery is cortain. I have seen all tho horrors of a deathbed scene enacted over people suffering from an acute attack. Knowing that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it leaves no serious effect, it is very difficult to assume that you are ministering to the dying. And at times a perfectly sincere effort in this direction will terminate in comedy. People lie in their bunks pale as death. The chap lain is fetched, and he is assured by the sufferer that burial at sea is a cer tainty. He is of another opinion, but maintains If possible a sympathetic tone. I confess to having cultivated many hypocritical looks and senti ments, which I have sometimes enjoy ed. One night I was called to tho bunk of an old man who had been tnal de ...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

III. "Nonsense!" protested Austin My ers, pleasantly. "We'll travel back to gether. Grey has told me your story, and I think you're a first-rato fellow. Don't worry about the fare. I'll stand the difference for the pleasure of your company. Who says romance is dead in these days? Why, you are a living witness to the contrary. I'm sure Miss Nancy agrees with me." Nancy flushed and smiled shyly at this raillery; then she sighed also, for in an hour's time her lover, Kyrle Beaumont, was to start for Cape Town en route for England; and, al though he was to return by the next boat, yet even the short separation of a few weeks was a trouble to her. "You are too kind," replied Kyrle Beaumont, with a bow profound enough to indicate deep reverence, or possibly contempt. "My plans are already made and cannot be altered; my passage is taken. We shall part when we leave this house." And, turning rather abruptly away, he be 'gan to make his public adieux; it is more than probable he had already ...

NERVOUS WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

NERVOUS WOMEN. When the nerves get out of order the whole system lags in sympathy. The digestive system, the liver, and the )ieart all refuse to do their work. Every nervous woman should eat sev eral times a day. She should eat three meals, have a light luncheon between meals, and never omit a warm drink taken just before she goes to bed. Gentle exercise and work are as ne cessary to tho woman with nerves as i food and fresh air. An active interest in life will be her salvation, but gen I erally the woman in such a conditio.': thinks she is not interested in'a thing in life bo she must keep at work un til she develops an interest. A celebrated physician has said— "If you wish to avoid nervousness live with reason, have a purpose in life, and work for it; play joyously, strive not for the unattainable, be not an noyed by trifles, aim to attain neither great knowledge nor great riches, be not self-centred, but love the good and thy neighbor as thyself." If you want knowledge, you must...

THE SERVANT PROBLEM SOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

THE SERVANT PROBLEM SOLVED. A society of women were having a meeting to discuss the never-ending question of cooks. It was the almost unanimous opinion of the assembly, after an hour's talk, that it was im possible to keep a cook more than a month without changing. "However," announced the president, "if any per son knows of an exceptional case, let her speak." At this a new member timidly rose. "The exception is in my house,' she said. "How long have you had your cook?" asked the pre sident. "Over five years." The others stared in amazement. "Is this cook entirely satisfactory as a cook?" "My husband thinks not, but she stays, all the same." "How do you manage to keep her, then?" "Because she won't go!" "Aha!" The president regarded the new member with pity and scorn. "Mrs. Tonson," she said, "instead of advancing case in which a longsought solution might have been found, you expose yourself as being worse off than any of your sisters. You show that by allowing this cook to stay ov...

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

ANTICS PLAYED BY LIGHTNING. T' - antics played toy lightning are sometimes almost beyond belief. A common trick is that of undressing its victims. In 189S two girls and an elderly woman were standing by a reaping machine during a storm. A lightning flash 6truck the woman and killed her on the spot, while the two girls were stripped to the skin, even their boots being torn from their feet. Otherwise they were safe and sound —and astonished. In 1S55 a man was struck by lis; ning near Vallerois, in France, and stripped naked. All that could be found afterwards of his clothes was a shirt-sleeve, a few other shreds, and some pieces of his hob-nailed boots. Ten minutes after he was struck ho regained consciousness, opened his eyes, complained of the cold, and inquired how ho happened to be naked. Such instances have 'been recorded again and again. In one case a man and two oxen were struck simultan eously, and all three killed. The man was found stripped to the skin, and his boots had bee...

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

AN M.P.'s ANECDOTES. Many good stories were told by 11 Macnamara, M.P., recently, when he gavo some of his "Reminiscences and Reflections" at the Herne Hill Congre gational Church, with Sir Albert Spi cer in tho chair. Beginning with tho barrack-room at Montreal, he was alternately serious and humorous. On the one and only day he played truant at Pembroke Dock his mother went to nsk the schoolmaster if he could leave early to go out to tea. "And this," he n marked sorrowfully, "I have always regarded as hard lines." Half the failures in life, lie said, are those of people who thought they could do something elso better. Tin: was his first reflection. And so, al though lie wished to 'be a soldier, he did ills best as a pupil teacher. At Exeter ho was taught singing by a lame man -who waved his stick threat eningly when his pupils did not grasp a melody quickly. This lent itself to Dr. Macnamara's first witticism, for this, he thought, must bo the meaning of the "staff notation." He b...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914

II. "I'm awfully sorry," faltered Nancy, with a startled look in her lovely eyes, "but what you aslc is impossible. I cannot marry you. I hadn't the least idea " "But now you know you'll soon bring yourself to say 'Yes' — and 'Thank you,' too," said Austin Myers, in his most egotistical tone. "Why, it's a chance you'd never get again if you lived to be a hundred. I'm some body, I am—and I mean to get to the Very top! That's why I stuck out here for ten long years. I wanted the 'pile' to be big enough to float me over there in the old country, and it is. I'll settle a rattling good sum on you, and " "Please, please stop. 1 really am grateful for the honor you have paid me," broke in Nancy, hurriedly, "but it is impossible. Do believe me, and never refer to the matter again." A dark flush crept over Myers's face, and the look was in his eyes which had made many a wretched underling cower. He seized Nancy's wrist and held it in a fierce grip. "It can't be impossible, unless there's som...
