HOMES WITHOUT DOORS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914

L OI S WITHOUT DOORS (By George A. Birmingham, in "The Daily tMail") Members of great and conquering na tions are able to impose their own fav orite customs upon the peoples among whom they travel. The English, for in stance, have spread tne naout of ir.nI ing tea in the afternoon all over Europe, forcing on extra meal every day on the naturally abstemious Latin peoples. The Americans have insisted on having all the chief hotels in Europe heated to scuh al extent that the origi nal inhabitants of the Continent go about gasping. The French, though they do not travel much, have taught everybody in the world to write lists of 'cooked food in their language and to call the lists menus. It is, I think, to Sthe Germans that we owe the fact that we can smoke in the restaurant-cars belonging to the International Company of Wagons-lits, in spite of notices put up in several languages forbidding the practice. But we others, who belong to small nations, have neither the power nor the right to ...

Not Worth While. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914

Not Worth While. It is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but which decidedly pre vent them from doing, their best. Rheumatism, .gout, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general. debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused by retention of uric and biliary poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their functions. Warner's Safe Cure. is a kidney and liver remedy; which has been successful in so many. cases that sufferers from any of the complain...

TALE OF THE SEA [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 12 March 1914

TALE OF- THE SEAt A sensational tale of the sea was told on the arrival of the"Aberdeen barque Inveresk, 1476 tons, at Queenstown, on Saturday, after being 147 days on the voyage .'from Portland, Oregon (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5). Her poophouse was demolished by a huge wave, and the steering wheel was in a state of complete wreck. The chief- officer of the Inveresk, in an interview, said that after sailing from their port of loading nothing of note occurred until October 30 last, when, in latitude 44 South, a terrific cyclone burst upon them. Immense seas broke over the stern of the ves sel, completely submerging her. Some of the crew were stationed aft when a wave came over the stern, and the unfortunate men, including Captain Buchan, were .lifted off their feet and washed along the vessel's decks until they were brought up against the iron bulwarks amidships. The skipper and a young seaman named Anderson re ceived serious injuries, and had their legs broken, whilst ...

He was annoyed to think that he was mis understood by the people owing to his having been misrepresented by the " Observer."'.,: He was misre presented by what was withheld as much as by* wlit' appeared. His people were very sore about it, and he had to make an explanation from his pulpit. The people said he had refused to vote for a motion that a letter of sympathy be sent to Cannon Carmichael.
