"I had pains in my legs which the doc. tor said was rheumatism," writes Mr Robt. Cochrane, Builder, Waimiha, N.Z. "His lotion did me no good and I suffered misery. I saw a friend using some liniment which he told me was Chamberlain's Pain Balm and offered me his bottle to try it.

Potato Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
SPotato Crops Since "there is something not alto. gether displensing to us in the mis fortunes of our friends" according to a famous French philosopher, potato. growers in thfis district would probably find consolation, if-not comfort, in look ing just now at the potato crops in and bhout the bliet approved potato lands in the Bu goree land adjacent localities. All through, the paddocks in. the parts referred to,.tlere"wnas the very poorest f showing last week, gaps many and wide in almost every row of potatoes, and every surface indication of but meagre yield of tubers. -Growers in our own district are naturally by no'means satisfied with the results of this season's cultivationu of potato fields, but few of their crops appear to have turned out so badly as a majority of those elsewhere in Victoria, even in districts that have long been noted for their heavy growth of such produce.
WINTER IN ARCADY. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 16 April 1914
WINTER IN..ARCADY. Is It months or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster in the hall), And our wand'ring foot.teps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cllng ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbnlg through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the bottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis the summer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the Ihours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing by the beam). But these sylvan joys are fading And tonmorrow we'll be wading To the city through the pathway at the bottom o...

PARIS-A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Nouf, with its silent melodrama under thie dawning heavens-or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do wesee the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Mouffetard-or. in the revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your peoples-or the ro mance of your restaurateurs? WVhich? I wondor. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France-little Paquerette Is dead.

And Paris, four thousand' miles beyond" the seans Paris isn't what it it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city-it is Youth. And Youth never d...

At the Council Table. Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 20 April 1914
At the Council Table.I Notes and Comments. There was mystery in the air during the few days immediately antecedent to the date of last week's Council meeting. Hints were given on all sides that "something was going to happen." Yet no one seemed to know, or at all events cared to say, what that "something" vas. This was of course with reference to the con flict of interests that has been dis closed, with respect to the two proposed sites for municipal sale yards that has for weeks past been subject of animated discus sion wherever two or three of the many hundreds interested came together. But when the matter came up for discussion at the Council table there was little or no excitement, though no lack of interest. Cr Koch had, it seems, inadvertently referred the motion (that he wished to rescind) to a wrong date. Cr Ross is, as we all know, 1 too strong an adherent to cor- 2 rect procedure, to let a little mis- e take of this kind escape his not- a ice. He was careful to point out t...
