THE LITANY. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
THE LITANY. If; is reported by cable that the King and Queen have recently attended a great service of intercession held at the Abbey. The form of prayer used would no doubt be the Litany to be found in our Prayer Book with possibly a few variations and prayers similar to those compiled by our Archbishop in the special Litany, whioh is said at St. George's, Numurkah, every Tuesday and Friday morning at eight thirty. It is also reported that vast j numbers are attending similar services throughout England. Are we going to act the same, or are we going to be con tent with just the few who make it con venient to attend ? What a fine thing ; it would be to behold as many as our j ohurch could possibly hold assembling ] themselves together and spending a quar- i ter of an hour in intercession to Almighty God the Lord of Hosts. Header, can you spare she time from your business, or can you allow your employes off for that brief period ? Will it interfere very much with the work at that tim...
VOLUNTEERS REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
VOLUNTEERS REJECTED. Since the volunteers went into camp «t Broadmeadows, very strict medical examinations have taken place, with the result that many men have been rejected. Included in the number are Messrs R. D, Ward, W, Cumming, and G. Broom. Hardship is being experlencsd by some of the men. They had, of course, to resign their employment, and in many cases their places have been filled. Mr Ward was employed at this office, and all enquiries made went to show that no further examination would be needed ; as Mr Ward put it, they were already on active service. Acting on this his posi tion here was filled, and the result is that, solely on account of his willingness to serve his country, he has been thrown out of employment. The agreement made with his successor cannot be broken, much as we should have liked to re-Instate him, for he is a fine workman. The Government should make amends in such cases, either by finding employ ment for those rendered workless, or keeping ihem until ...

From Trinidad to Bournville. REMARKABLE MOVING PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
From Trinidad to Bournville. REMARKABLE MOVING PICTURE. How they do it at Bonrnville, the place where the world-wide famous Oocoa and Chocolate come from which bear that name, formed the Bubject of a peculiarly effective and cleverly ar ranged film at West's pictures in Syd ney recently, bearing the appropriate title,"The Food of the GodB." We have have all enjoyed Oadbury Brothers' Bonrnville Oocoa, and their delightful chocolate preparations, but very few know the hiBtory of what they are con suming, from the plant in far away Trinidad down to the point at which they strip off the picturesque wrapper to get at the dainty and nutritious con tents. Away in Trinidad, under favour ing tropical skies, the firm has its es tates with their far-stretching planta tions ;here you see the setting of the young plants, their maturity, the har vesting of the cocoa pods, their opening, and the natural drying of the beans by the sun's fierce tropical heat. Then come the bagging, the mule transpor...

We are answering a veiy important question to-day, viz., •' Do the people who say they have been cured by Doan's Backache Kidney Pills stay oared?"

But a medicine which drives the illness away so that it stays away, that medicine does all medi cine can do. We bave been veri fying our earlier published eases, and we are pleased to say that the result of our investigations lias been most grati fying.
