A Matter of Choice. ' Sawdust is neither pleasant to eat nor diges tible, and I dont like nightmares. It cau well be imagined that few would disagree with Miss Dick's views as to the unsuitability of sawdust as an. article of diet, and nightmare for a constant oom-. panisn. Now, Miss Dick had, for nearly seven, years, been an acute sufferer, and for a long time, bad lost all sense of tast.*, so much so, that, she said, ' I might have been eating sawdust for all the taste I had,' and, continuing, ' my work was a regular nightmare to me, as I could hardly drag myself about.' But why was this ? Misi Dick, with thousands of other ladies, had become a mar tyr to ansnua, sick headaches and indigestion. Was there no remedy? Nearly seven years search, had failed to disclose one. Hut perseverance ami determination at last met their reward, the remedy was discovered and found to bs easily procurable.

Rev. F. B. Boyce on Temperance. [Newspaper Article] — The Blayney Advocate and Carcoar Herald — 15 October 1898

-Rev. P. B. Boyce on Tem perance. The Rev. Mr. Boyce delivered au address on Temperance in Bathurst on Tuesday night, in the course of which he said he was was there on account of the liquor traffic, and he believed that drink was the right hand of sin. He was there because medical science had pronounced liquor to be a poison oecause tney round in meir coiony mat drink created many evils. The fact was that in their colony there were 32,000 con victions for drunkenness every year. He was not sure as to the number in Bathurst, but he thought it was going down. Some persons asked what good had been done ? One very good point was this reduction in the number of convictions. In 1886 the number was 26,000 and notwithstanding the increase in population the number now was only 22,000. Another point was that there was a large amount of crime in the colonies, and they had 58 gaols — first, second, and third-class — and they were mainlr needed for victims of intemperance.

A Modern Fiend. [Newspaper Article] — The Blayney Advocate and Carcoar Herald — 22 October 1898

A Modern Fiend. Never since the Inquisition has there been ' his like. His mind seems so peculiarly constructed that he appears to delight in inflicting the most terrible agony upon the most inoffensive persons, and dealing it out to his victims in such a manner that they I are unable to tell from whence the pain has j come. His victims fill every church vard. and our greatest intellects have been striving to rid the earth of his hateful presence, but he attacks the very judge as lie deals out justice upon tho bench, as if to cast derision upon the majesty of tha law. To say that no one escapes from his clutch is a mistake, for many have recovered. Mrs. A. Evertingham, Nana-road, Grafton, speaks carefully. She says: — 'Since girl hood I have suffered from severe indigestion (the fiend we refer to), would catch me with au awful pain in the client, aud made me believe that I could not live an hour. I tried many remedies, and saw several medical men, but their curus were not lasting. N...
