Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for tho sake of greater- gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement bj' special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. "When ill you should not depress j'ourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this yott find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT. Mr W. A. Laeey, a buyer for the Gippsland Co operative Bacon Curing Company, will for...
FAIR HARVEST ASSURED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
FAIR HARVEST ASSURED. Drought talk which has seriously af fected certain trades in the past month has been happily dispelled by: recent rpins. West and South Australia, Queensland and New. South Wales are now assured of a fair harvest, and, the northern part of Victoria exhibits a backward but by no means hopeless ; prospect. Droughts as they were known and feared in the past are not ,-likely ever ag:ain to have their old wholesale disastrous effects, because the. area of cultivation in Australia to-day is so widespread that when one district is dry another gets the rain, and an absolute failure of the whole local grain, wool and meat supply is impossible. ■
How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of buying property in it. Refuse to see merit 'in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest". Show your distrust by refusing to lay out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and-cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your tOAvn from its advertisement sheets. Then you twill effectually damn your town and district.

A lecture and demonstration on physical culture, muscular develop ment and control was givei^ in the Mechanics' Hall, Moe, on Friday evening, August 7," by " Monac," a leading Melbourne espeilt, who also addressed the pupils of the State School during the afternoon; and as a result of this expert's visit a good impression has been left on young and old alike. Mr J. C. Talbot, who. presided, introduced the expert, and he was accorded a good reception by a large audience. " Monac" was, no doubt, sincere in his remarks, and the manner in which facts.were placed before those present reminded them how bad habits were responsible for a lot of, if Dot all, sickness.. He laid down six cardinal rules of health-giving principles. Fresh air was of con siderable value, and sleeping in the open air advocated ; also care of the teette.andpractisingdespr breathing in the open ^'air "^not1" in closed' rooms); mastication of: food (pro perly selected...

TRADE RUNNERS. NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
TRADE RUNNERS. NOVEL LIFE IN AUSTRALIAN PORT. An interesting phase of life in the port of Newcastle (Australia) a few years ago was that of trade-running. The ships running to make port were sought out in the open sea by "but cher" boats manned by expert oars men, whose object was to gain the quarter-deck , of the incoming sailors before rival traders, so that they might secure the orders for meat, bread, or clothes. To-day steam tramps do a large share of the coal-carrying trade, and even with the sailors that remain the providoring bf the vessel is often arranged beforehand by the owners or charterers. The story of the trade-runners is full of excitement, and not infrequent ly smacks of dangerous adventure. It was the keenness of trade rivalry that added zest to the game. There were the lookout men, the well-trained oars men and cox, and all the excitement of the chase. Those old marauding sea men of the Mediterranean who chased their prey in "evil-looking low-cut ves sels with sl...

Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
Chance for the Country Party GRAIN ELEVATORS WANTED. Victoria is lagging behind Westralia and New South Wales in respect to grain carriage in bulk. These two widely-divided States are preparing to erect grain silos and elevator's, and no doubt they will induce shipping companies to fit up their holds speci ally for the reception of unbagged wheat. Such ships will shun the port of Melbourne until it is brought into line. The grain production of Austra lia is still in its infancy. Distance from the European market hampers its growth. Bulk handling would cut away part of this handicap. The Country Party in Victorian Legisla ture has the chance of its lifetime now to press for grain elevators, while the new Premier is gingerly gathering up the lines of his policy and is in a pliable condition and sen sitive to the promptings of any rea sonable section of his followers.
GEELONG WAKES UP. PIVOT CITY NOW PROGRESSIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 12 August 1914
GEELONG ~ WAKES' UpT PIVOT CITY NOW PROGRESSIVE. Geelong is awake! A few years ago there was not so very much exagger ation in the story that a person in Moorabool-street at 10 p.m. was liable to be looked upon as a suspect. Now its tram bells chime in harmony with the dulcet tones-from the post office clock; at midnight. To accord with the professed sanctity of the city, no doubt, the post-office bells ring out a stanza of something like "Abide With Me." But can it be when no amorous lover with his lass would dare venture to recline on the grassy slopes? Geelong's by-laws state he must sit erect or walk on. Shops and houses are springing up like mush rooms on the banks of the Barwon. The council has had the long fence around Johnstone Park and the tall flag-pole therein painted. And, the "tip" below the Gordon College haB almost been filled in. Geelong foot ballers need not now lounge about the streets. They can go to their new club rooms and play ping-pong and drink filtered • wat...

SAYINGS OF TO-DAY AND YESTERDAY The only principle about some peo ple is to make principal without prin ciple.—Sam Mentz. 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.—George Ade. When you criticise a man he is first takjn aback, and then he takes af front.—W. Tallman. Some folks are like rocking-chairs— full of motion without progress.—Es telle Klauder. A cannibal king recently sent post haste for his doctor "Good gracious, man," the doctor, said, "you're in a dreadful state. What have you .been, eating?" "Nothing," groaned the sick man, "except a slice of that multi-million aire whose yacht was wrecked on .Cocoanut Reef." "Merciful powers!" the doctor cried. "And I told you under no circum stances to eat anything rich. George, get the saws and axes. We must I operate at once." "I'm sorry to confess it," says Madame Joire, one of Paquin's repre sentatives, "but the bodice which makes the most liberal revelations are going to continue popular for a long time amo...

CORRESPONDENCE. :—♦ ' [We wish it to be distinctly understood that we do not necessarily approve of the-: opinions expressed by correspondents in this columD.] TANGtfL SOUTH TENNIS COURT. TO TUE EDITOR. Sir,—I noticed in your columns last week a letter anent the tennis club at Tangil South. The writer (" One of the Ladies") seems to be a bit at sea in what appeared in your columns, under the heading of " Tangil South," a fortnight ago. The writer of that said " The most interest was taken by the ladies. Not only did they provide refreshments at all working-bees, but could be seen chopping logs and piling up rubbish." He said nothing about it taking two or three to cut a three-inch limb through. All he wrote was to the credit of the ladies, and I can assure you he would be the last one to criticise anything that the ladies did at the working-bees. The writer, " One of the Ladies." appears to be the only one who took it up in the -wrong light, for I know, that the rest of the ladies a...
