A REMARKABLE CURE | What Clements Tonic can do in I restoring the nerves to healthy power i and making the weakened system strong. A letter in point which is worth reading. No. 6 Post Office Place, South Melb,, 2/7/11. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD.. " Your tonic is one of the quickest nerve and brain cures known. I tried all kinds of doctors' medicines, and got no relief as I have from your tonic. I could not stand anyone talking to me, or the noise of the town traffic.' I lost appetite and weight. I was that weak at times a child could push me over. I had to give up work.. I lay hour after hour awake, now I can go to bed and almost sleep at once. ^ My case was one of the worst I ever 'heard of. I thought I would never get well. I .can hardly believe the relief I have got from Clements Tonic. Nearly all those symptoms I told you of have left me, and two or three more bottles will make me strong. Before this I was going twice a week to the Melbourne Hospital, and many people were there with th...

WATER COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

WATER COMMISSION. During the last financial year whioh closed on 30th June, the Water Commis sion succeeded in collecting rates to the amount of £190,000. This does not repre sent the sum actually due, as in actual fact there is a proportion of the rates outstanding, the amount of which is not yet ascertainable. The commission has given instructions to its .solicitors to sue for the arrears in a number of instances. When the commission was first formed the revenue for the year 1906-1907 amounted to £88,000, but the rates have necessarily been increasing from year to year. Last year's receipts constituted a record. During the past few years there have been several districts added, though one source of revenue—Geelong—has dis appeared.

Mysterious Stomach Troubles. PRINCIPAL CAUSE REVEALED. A great deal of mystery is made about stomach troubles, and many people go in constant dread of life-long incapacity or the horrors of the operating table just because they experience pain in the region of the stomach for whioh they cannot ac count. Instead of looking for the cause of the trouble, they seem only too ready to describe themselves as " martyrs to indigestion "or " chronic dyspeptics." Excessive acidity is saicbto be the direct cause of more than 90 per cent, of all stomach troubles, and, according to many eminent physicians, the occasional use of a reliable antacid, such as half-a-teaBpoon fnl of pure bisurated magnesia in a little water after meals, will do more towards righting stomach derangements than all the patent foods and medicines ever In vented, because this gets at "the root of the trouble—stops fermentation of the food contents, and neutralises the acids which otherwise would irritate and inflame the st...

Public Meeting at the State School, [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

Public Meeting: at the State School, A public meeting, convened by the Rushworth State School Committee, was held at the school on Wednesday evening last, when there was an attendance of close upon thirty lady and gentlemen parents. Mr Peart (chairman of the school com mittee) explained that the committee had called the parents together in the hope that some means might be found for rais ing the necessary funds for the establish ment of a cookery centre at Rushworth. It was estimated that the cost of prepar ing a room and providing the necessary appliances would run into between £20 and £30, but the department gave a pro mise to provide £ for £. The hands of the committee were, however, tied in other directions for the want of funds so that even if the amount required for the cookery business were exceeded good use could be made of the surplus money. Some discussion ensued, during which Mr Raff said he favored holding a bazaar, as apart from the monetary side it gave the children an...

Nearly a Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

Nearly a Tragedy. One frequently hears reference made to " American journalism," which is regarded as nothing if lacking in sensationalism. The following is a local production, and, whilst it compares favorably on the side of sensationalism, it also combines a touch of realism—'slru h, it is true. Our cor respondent proceeds—"This town has passed through another great excitement through Jamioitzka Bragovitch's failure to j hang himself last Saturday night. Woman was running in all directions for help to try and save the would-be suicide. Children were scared out of their lives to see Jaminitzka up an lronbark tree with I a rope to hang himself with. The female population of the town were wringing their hands and begeing him to get down and live, but Jamini'zka was not having any. He put a slip knot around his neck, and just as some of the male population arrived, . he wished them goodbye and launched—not into eternity, but came down bang on the ground (the other end was not tied).

Federal Election. MR PALMER AT RUSHWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

Federal Election. MR PALMER AT RUSH WORTH. Mr A. 0. Palmer, the selected Liberal Candidate for the forthcoming Federal election for Echuia, opened the election campaign, as far as Rushworth is concerned, in the shire hall on Wednes day evening last. There was a moderate attendance of electors, some 80 or 90 persons being present, with a fair spriokling of ladies. The candidate's speech was listened to attentively, there being a total absence of anything tending to disorder from the opposite section to Mr Palmer's strongly advocated Liberal policy. Mr J. Burt Stewart occupied the chair, and, in introducing the sitting member, said he hoped. to have seen a larger attendance there that evening. Still, it was recognised that they had not engendered that enthusiasm here in Rushworth yet which was certain to come once the campaign was fully embarked upon. He (the chairman) might say they were up against the biggest problem regarding the Federal Parliaments they had ever faced. Australia a...

RUSHWORTH'S FIRST WIN. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

RUSHWORTH'S FIRST WIN. For the first time this season Bash worth were victorious on Saturday last. It was the return match with IS'agambie," and it was played on the Bushworth ground, whioh fact no doubt helped the locals somewhat, for they always give a better account of themselves at home than elsewhere. Nagambie were said to be weak, but even so the merit of the victory must not be discounted, for the team as a whole played well. There was a stiff breeze blowing across the~ ground, otherwise it was one of those clear balmy days conducive to the pleasures of out door sport. Still the attendance was laoking, and it looks as if interest in the game generally is on the wane. Those who did witness the game, however, had the pleasure of witnessing a good game, although on the play Bushworth should have gained a more decisive victory. The game was umpired by Hempel, but he allowed the players to gel right out of hand and was not altogether satisfactory. First quarter.—There was a fair w...

MURCHISON V. AVENEL. A CLOSE GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

MURCHISON V. AVENEL. A CLOSE GAME. Accompanied by a fair following of sup porters, Murchison footballers journeyed to Nagambie on Wednesday afternoon last for the purpose of re-playing a dis puted match against Avenel as ordered by the association at its last meeting. B >th Murchison and Avenel made the journey to Nagambie by special train, and, al though the trains were fairly well patro nised, It is more than likely that each will result in a loss to the association. The day was beautifully fine, and, despite the fact that there was an important counter attraction in Nagambie ia the shape of a fox terrier coursing meeting, a large crowd of enthusiasts congregated at the ground for the purpose of witnessing the malch, which, owing to the weakened nature of the Murchison team, was pre dicled to produce a close,.finish. The gate takings amounted to £12 14'. When the teams were lined np it was found that Mutchiaon was without the services of Ewart, Magner, Tilson, Griffith and Gill...

WATER STORAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 24 July 1914

WATER STORAGES. An importanfrecommendation has been made to the Government by the Water Commission for the establishment of addi tional water storage for irrigation and other purposes. The commission urges that a weir should be built without delay at Sugarloaf, on the Upper Goulburn. Though two years ago the Government announced that additional storage basins must be constructed without delay in order to keep pace with the extension of irrigation farming in the north, the pro vision of that extra storage is no nearer accomplishment now than it was then. What was known as the Tabilk -scheme was in 1912 advanced, reormmended, boomed, and- then -suddenly dropped. Then an elaborate investigation was made on the Upper Goulburn River. The old Trawool scheme was abandoned, and a site for storage was chosen higher up at Sugarloaf. This site, too, was strongly recommended, accepted, and dropped. Now it is revived in modified form. The commission suggests that a lower weir should be construct...
