Never Neglect Backache. Do nob neglect the warning message of the bach that aches. Backache is a sign that your kidneys are weak and not able to properly carry out their work of filter ing the blood. Then look after your kidneys at the first sign of backache, for if neglected serious trouble will follow— rheumatic pains, urinary disorder, neu ralgia, gravel, stone, dropsy.

Merry full, Nuggetty Road, Rushworth, says :—•' My daughter was subject to pains in her back, and used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for this trying ailment.

Pills did her the slightest good, but she greatly improved after taking these Pills for a week or so, and was very soon com pletely cured."

COURSING. MURCHISON AND DARGALONG CLUB'S FIRST OUTING. AN UNSURPASSED SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 7 August 1914

OOURSING murohison and dargalong CLUB'S FIRST OUTING. AN UNSURPASSED SUCCESS. When the officials of the .Murchison and Dargalong Coursing Club decided, some few weeks back, to call a general meeting of members for the purpose of reviewing the olub's position things generally were admitted to be at a pretty low ebb. Although the response at this meeting, which was practically to • decide the life or death of the club, was none too encouraging the officials decided, to hit out to the tune of a 32-dog stake, at a guinea per dog, with £10 10s added by the club. At the time it was fully recog nised that the success or failure of the meeting would depend entirely on the weather—rain spelt success ; the con tinuation of the dry spell meant failure. For a time the conditions were all against rain, but luckily the weather changed in time and 61 points of rain were recorded at Murchison on the Tuesday prior to the first day of the meeting. Those.61 points "saved the bacon." In the intervening...

They might differ on minor points, but he was sure they were all agreed to endeavor to maintain the integrity of the British Empire.

He was sure Australia would not be behind-hand in its help to the Motherland. They ad mired the good judgment with which their leading statesmen handled these matters, still they must be prepared for the worst, as the local troops would prob ably be mobilised, and they must meet the position as me...

BALMY TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 7 August 1914

BALMY TOWN. (By Old Timek.) The old town must be in a bad way, judging by the following account, which is contributed by " Old Timer." He had a most depressing fit of " the blues " at the time and was constrained to give the show away. He writes :— " Balmy Town is situated in the forest, 90 miles from Melbourne. It is an old deserted mining camp, and in the early days Roaring Camp was as nothing com pared with it. In the early days of the diggings hundreds of miners (both alluvial and quartz) made a living in Balmy Town, but as the gullies became worked out and the reefs got poor the population dwindled down to a dozen families and a few old bachelors. There is now no drink shop or store in Balmy Town—a church, State school, post-office, and Mechanics' Institute constitute the principal buildings left. In the centre of Balmy Town is a small mountain, on the tc p of which is an old gold mine, at one time famous for its riches. Hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of gold were won fr...

FOOTBALL NOTES. WABANGA - NORTH - EASTERN ASSOCIATION. MATCHES FOR THE WEEK. Football under the Waranga-North Eaatern Association was advanced another stage on Wednesday a£c> rnoou last, on which dale Murchison visited Seymour, Nagambie visited Avenel, bat Rush worth, unable to get together a team, forfeited to Euroa. The travelling teams (Murchison and Nagambie) each scored decisive victories over their opponents, the games in eaoh instance being keenly fought. The struggle for positions in the final four grows keener every week. Murchison and Euroa are assured of positions, but at the present juncture it is very hard to siy whether Nagambie, Avenel or Seymour will be relegated to a position at the bottom of the list to keep company with Rushworth. The position is decidedly interesting. On Monday last the president of tho association (Mr E. C. Parsons) received the ''Gordon Shield"—a trophy pre sented by Mr John Gordon, .VI. L.A., for competition amongst the various clubs compri...

ANONYMITY AND LOYALTY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 7 August 1914

ANONYMITY AND LOYALTY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—Haviog previously stated my reasons for nob extolling Bannockburn, and having advanced facts which bespoke the existence of an Australian national sentiment, my present remarks will be conhned to dealing with Mr Stewart's last letter. Mr Stewart tells us his defence is unanswerable. That being admitted. It were useless to prooeed farther, but I would submit that no man, whether scholar, learned gentleman or intellectual aristocrat, should hold monopoly over all views relating to any one subjeot. Mr Stewart chastised me for using the terra "Scotchmen." Now, any man who is a native of Scotland may rightly be referred to as a " Scot," a " Scotsman," a " Scot tishman," or a " Scotohman." Perhaps "Scotchmen" may not sound nice, or proper, but we commonly speak of Scotch Terriers, Scotch Thistles, and Scotch Whisky. Then why nob refer to our Scotch friends as "Scotchmen." How ever, if I were in error, I am only offering the humble opinions of a c...

Oddfellows' Ball [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

Oddfellows' Ball Tho above ball, held under the auspices of the local branch of G.U.O.O.F., took place in the shire hall, Rushwcth, on Friday evening last, when, despite the disturbed feeiing caused by the war, there was an attendance of some 50 couples. The committee had spared nothing in their efforts to make the function asuccesB and had beautifully decorated the hall with flags and red, white and blue ropes, which gave the proceedings a patriotic touch. Oddfellows wore their full regalia and thereby greatly added to the effect. Dancing was kept up till a late hour to music supplied by Mr Alf. SalaB (piano) and Mies Gilbanks (violin), and all voted the evening a most enjoyable one. The music was splendid—a fact which alone assures the success of any dance—and a word of praise is also due to Mr R. Laish man, who supplied a supper that left no thing to be desired. Mr W. Whitaker undertook the duties of M.C,, and acted in a oapable manner. The old-established Murchison butcher lug b...

METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 14 August 1914

METHODIST CHURGH. A very large congregation attended the Methodist church oh Sunday night, when the Rev. H. Richardson dealt somewhat fully with " The War." He pointed out the startling swiftness with which the war cloud had burst and that war usually arose j from the lust of territory or national pride. Ethically* both aides in wars were sometimes in the wrong, though both could never be In the right. All wars in volved criminality somewhere ; bub one side might be justified in resorting to arms. This was true when war was waged in self defeDce, on behalf of the oppressed, or in carrying out honorable national obliga tions. In this case he felt satisfied that the offenders were the Germans and Aus trian. Servia was only a pawn in the Germanic-Austrian game, and "one word" from the Kaiser would have prevented the nmsent awful conflict, which was a satire on oar civilization and a scandal to reason.' But Germany thought the day had come ; that France could be crumpled up and her colo...
