San Remo. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 2 July 1915
San Remo. At the last ..meeting of the Phillip Island, and Woolamai Shire council a brief discussion, subsequently adjourned, arose on the vexed question of cattle wan dering on roads and streets, in connection with an application that the Ranger be relieved of his duties for six months or until the farmers have had time to recover from the effects of the late drought. Of course in times of drought the temptation to ' runcattle on to the roads is irresistible, but it was pointed out that some holders of a couple of acres of land habitu ally graze 20 or 30 head of cattle on the roads. Cr Mcllwraith ex pressed the opinion that the only way to deal effectively with the question would be to change a fee f'>r all cattle on the roads Such an arrangament would minimise the evil, but the trouble is the people having been accustomed for a long series of years to free dom in this matter will not be willing to pay. Under the exist ing system there is constant an noyance because of a feeling...

WE MUST REPEAT When everybody tells the same story. It is hard to say new tilings about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They cure the lame and aching back, the sufferer from kidney disorders, and the troubles of those whose urinary or ganism is wrong in its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proven. Read this: Mr. A. W. Matthews, Reid-crescent, Wonthaggi, says:-"Through having to work in damp places I caught a bad cold, which, unfortunately, settled on my kidneys. My back commenced to ache, and I was soon in such pain that it was almost impossible for me to move without suffering agony. I was also subject to dizzy attacks, and felt tired and had no energy for anything. Later on the secretions became affect ed, being thick and cloudy, and con tained a red sediment. I suffered in this way for some time, and was then ad vised to take Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, so I sent for a bottle at once. After using them ...

Recruiting for Australian Imperial Forces. i RECRUITING HAS SHOWN A MARKED FALLING OFF LATELY. Although no new units may at pre sent be under organisation, it is vitally important that there should be no shortage of recruits for reinforce ments. There may be some idea abroad that enlistment for reinforcements is not so necessary nor nearly so impor tant as enlistment for a definite unit. This is quite incorrect.

Men must be forthcoming without delay to re place those fallen and to support and strengthen the gallant Australians fighting in Gallipoli. Men enlisted for reinforeemenis must have at least three months training " before embarkation. Oi e draught of reinforcements is at present nearly 2,000 short of requirements.
