ECZEMA. Mrs. ELIZABETH ROBINS, of - 256 Gouger Street, Adelaide, S.A., writes the story of her terrible suffer ings, 24/12/12. Eight years she was a martyr to the agony of Eczema, until she received relief from the almost ceaseless pain of this awful affliction through the use of LEMENTS TONIC The voluntary offering of this remark able letter by Mrs. Robins is evidence itself of her gratitude, and it is also proof that iii cases where the blood is impure and skin disease is in tensified by this condition, the blood purifying powers of Clemenits Tonic are rapidly asserted. CLEI~ENTS TONIC LTD., t "Your medicine has been a great blessing to me.

Sunday Corner. To Make Men Better. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

-: unday Corner. To Make Men Better. Our mission as Christians in this world is to do good to the worst people, to comfort, to help, to bless, to save. We are debtors to all men. We owe to every one we meet some benediction. We have an errand to every one. Where we can see no beauty, we are to seek to put the beauty of holiness: where we find only enmity and rage and wrong, we are to seek by patient love to overcome the evil with good. So, always forgetting our selves and our rights, we are to strive to save others for heaven. If we go'among men with this motive in our hearts, we shall have great joy in doing good even to the lowliest.

THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

THE LOSS OF ETIQUETTE. Once upon a time in E:ngland no. young girl would have dared to ac cept as much as a packet of choco lates or a posy from a young man. Now he may send her a confectioner's or a florest's shop, hy motor-car, and his box at the opera. So much have we* taken from America, . Never titheless the privileges of liberty carry their risks. The. increased liberty of the one sex reacts upon the other, and helps to make breaches in the ramparts. There is often very little distinc tion between the habits and mannera of-- the two sexes, They talk the same lingo, .employ the same ideas, and have the same sports and pas times. How is it practicable to, maintain an irreproachable system of etiquette between such? - The. modern young man takes his cue from the modern young woman, and joins her in ignoring her femininity. She's a "jolly good sort," a "nice. chap," and other horrors in slang, The fact is that we must invest our sexual relations wi`th a certain aloof-. ness and re...

WAR IDEAS. SCUTTLING BACK TO GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

WAR IDEAS. SCUTTLING BACK TO GERMANY. Official war bureaus deny us in. formation;but they do not forbid us to put two and two together--a a process been carried on with in finite satisfaction by thousands of war theorists who seem to think they know all about it. Indulging in such delicious theorising, several experts have announced that a great army of the Allies is now operating in Belgium. And they have good reasons. The war bureaus will neither affirm nor deny it, but the odds are mounting high on the speculation that there was truth in the story about the landing of Russian troops at Ostend. First there was the British seizing Ostend and the entrenchment of 17,000 marines there. Kitchener did not do that ifierely for fun. Then came t-henews of a hurried German ad vance on Ghent, cutting off Ostend from the Belgian army at Antwerp. Then came official news from three sources - London, Berlin (via Rome), and New York-that 73,000 Russians had embarked at Arch angel, taken to Aberde...

Change of Troops. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

Change of Troops. The steady tramp of troops as they marched into camp on Wed nesday, headed by their bands, indicated another change for the young soldiers. The regiments being relieved were the 49th and 73rd and those who arrived the 51st -and 55th. These regiments had not previously been in training here, and form, we understand, the last of -Victoria's sections. They looked -bright and cheery as they swung along in readiness for their fortnight's work. As they .moved into camp the returning regiments moved out, cheering the new ar rivals and comrades who had made themselves popular, the bands play ing inspiriting airs. The return ing soldiers were the most jubilant -they had been away a fortnight, and were pleased to return to com fortable homes and friends, for most were young men, who pos sibly had not been absent before. The last regiment got away before 6 o'clock. - The railway arrange ments .were well managed at this end, as has been the case on each occasion of change of t...

The bowling season is fast ap proaching, and bowlers are not so-.i. Tie annual meeting'of the local club is fixed for Oct. 7th, and the green will be opened shortly afterwards. It is hardly expected the green will be in the same good condition as on last opening day, by reason of the dry winter, but still, no doubt, it will not be far behind. The caretaker will shortly commence cutting the grass, when it will have quite a different ap pearance. The officers of the club will remain pretty well the same as last season, with the exception that Mr Hughes has consented to the secretaryship in place of Mr Stonely, with Mr Lavery as as sistant, and Mr Thwaites will fill Mr Hughes's place on the com mittee. The Girls' Clubof Queenseliff are to the fore with another grand. concert and gymnastic display, the date fixed being Oct. 1st. The concert is in aid of funds for the club's annual effort at the Ballarat Competitions on Oct. 9th. Last year, it will be remembered, the club gained - first ...

THE DAIRY THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

THE DAIRY y THE BEST COWS FOR DAIRYING. Under the above caption Mr. J. Long, a popular English writer on dairy subjects, in a recent issue of the "Dairy" (London) has several articles on the different breeds of dairy cows. Of the Jersey breed he has written the following: "The Jersey cow produces the rich est milk of any known breed. Her milk is seldom sold by dairymen, owing to its higher cost, but it pro duces the finest butter that can be made, and not only finer cheese but a larger quantity per gallon than the milk of any other breed. "Farmers as a rule object to the Jersey owing to the fact that she is of little value when slaughtered, or barren, while her calves realise very small sums of money except in those cases where the breeder has a reputa tion. She is also regarded as too delicate for roughing it in all parts of the country, but Jerseys which are bred for constitution and milk production, without regard to exhi bition points, I believe to be equal to maintaining health...

PATRIOTIC CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

PATRIOTIGC CONCERT. TWhen a concert to promote a Patriotic Fund was mooted it was not thought it would assume the very splendid effort that it proved to be. This was due to the .es pecial'interest in organising work of the Mayor and Cr Brinsmead who kindly undertook the sec retarial work. The latter gentle man has an especial talent for or ganisation, and Monday's concert. amply verified his ability in that direction. His thoughts flew to Geelong, where. he is well-known and regarded, and from-the cream of musical talent a request by hinm to help Queenscliff met. with ready response. The result was that the whole of the items were of- high-class character. Prior to the concert the two re gimental bands then in camp-49th and 73rd-paraded the streets and headed the local fire brigade in a torchlight procession, who added to the effect by indulging iht fancy marching. The band then played in front of the Town Hall, after which the people literally poured in until the building was quite...

THE TENDERFOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 19 September 1914

THE TENDERFOOT. A new chum who, in Garibaldi shirt and leggings, fitted with gigan tic spurs, had provided something of a spectacle in a Queenstand mining district,, dashed into a camp and in formed a party of prospectors that he had been bitten by a snake. They made an incision in the bitten part, and cauterised the wound by igniting on it a charge of gunpowder extract ed from a cartridge. Then they hur ried the unfortunate fellow to the hospital. The doctor applied remedies, but not the slightest symptom of poison ing manifested itself. There appeared to be three punctures in the skin, but the doctor began to doubt whe ther the man had been bitten by a snake at all. The patient was closely questioned, and then the fact was elicited that he had felt the bite when stooping down to take a drink at a creek. He had sat on one of his spurs.! There is a man who makes money whenever he wants it by a crafty ruse. He fills an oldport wine bottle nearly up to the n'eck with water, then -he p...
