CABLEGRAMS. REUTER'S SPECIALS. BRITAIN AND MEXICO. QUESTION IN COMMONS. INTERVENTION IMPOLITIC. LONDON, Tuesday. Two questions with regard to the execution of Mr Benton, a British ranchowner, by the Mexican rebels, were asked in the House of Commons yesterday. In replying to one enquirer, Sir Ed ward Grey (Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs) said that previous to the execution of Mr Benton, the United States had impressed the Mexican Gov ernment with the importance of re specting the lives and properties of Europeans. The fact that the British Foreign Office was communicating with the United States on the subject of Mr Benton's death, did not imply that tlere was any American responsibility in the matter. lie (Sir Edward) had communicated with the United States because the latter alone could exercise influence on Mexico and get justice done.
THIS FORMULA REALLY MAKES HAIR GROW. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
1HIS 'FORMULA BEAT.?LY MAKES HAIR GROW. Soihe -time ago I iead in a paper a formula for a preparation which was iaimed to" destroy the dandruff germ nd to strongly stimulate the hair 'rowth.l:hInr spite of the fact that I :ad already tried many preparations itliout beSe'fit, and my hair was thin -and falling, oun very fast, I decided to ivse .the formula a trial. Accordingly I got my. chemist to put up 3 ounces of. Bay. Rum, 1 ounce of Lavona de Com posee, and j dram of Menthol Crystals,' and applied it regularly every morning n?' night, rubbing carefully into the scalp with the finger tips. Much to my -lilight and astonishment the intoler able itching ceased with the first ap blieation, the dandruff disappeared, the "alling out of the hair stopped com iletely, and oy the time I had used four bottles I had a finer, longer, and more luxuriant growth of hair than I ever mad before.

AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. WASHINGTON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
AMERICAN .DIFFICULTY. WASHINGTON, Tuesday' It is understood in official circles that the United States passed facts relating to Benton's murder over to Great.Bri tain without commenting thereon. It is difficult to decide what action the" United States should take, as un Iess she intervenes in Mexico, she will be unable to bring General Vsula to ac count in any practicable way. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, British Am bassador, is frequently conferring with M[r Bryan about the condition of Bri tish refugees. If General Villa's forces win an im portant pending battle around Tarreor the United States. is likely to con sider the question of- recognising their belligerency.

ABANDONED BABY CASE. INTERESTING DEVELOPMENT. The Ballarat police have satisfac- torily cleared up the circumstances sur- rounding the finding of a male infant at the residence of Mr Jos. Egan, of Drummond street north, on Monday morning. Detective-sergeant Roger son took charge of the case, and, with the assistance of Constable Ross, of Wendource, and other members of the force, a certain line of investigation was pursued.

OBITUARY. MRS JAMES RICHARDSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
OBITUARY. MRS JAMES RICHARDSON. It is with much sorrow that we have to record the death of Mrs Fanny Mer- cer Richardson, relict of the late James Richardson, one of Ararat's earliest pioneers. The deceased lady, who was in her eighty-first year, had, by reason of her great age, been in declining health for some time, but was able to come into Ararat until quite recently, and she passed away quietly at Gor- rinn, Dobie, yesterday afternoon, at three o'clock. Mrs Richardson ranked as the oldest resident of this district, and having lived in Victoria for 79 years, is, we think, the oldest lady col- onist of the State. She shared this distinction with Mrs Pearmnan and Mrs Creswick, but both ladies passed away some little time ago, and Mrs Richard- son's death breaks a link which con- nects the early history of the State with to-day. She was the daugher of &nbsp; the late David Fisher, a gentleman who played a prominent part in the ear- ly settlement 'of Victoria, and was born i...
