A result of the Bush Nurses in spection of State School children was the appearance in Leongatha on Saturday of a waggon load of scholars from the Tarwin Lower school, at the dentist's to have their teeth attended to. There has been a decrease of 34,578 domestic servants within the past 25 years in England; The publishing of war newB that has not passed the censor constitutes a breach of neu trality. That remedy is quite sublime, Which really " makes good " every time, And thro' at modest cost 'tie sold, Is worth its weight in Virgin gold. It needs strong evidence to rout The rancour of the sceptic's doubt ; But such persistent proofs ensure His faith in Woods' Great Peppermint Cure.
