While ahey 'were at work a sud den snow sqiaall came on, and drove. the smack away from them. They followed, but failed" to pick the smack up, and when night fell they lost their bearings. Heavy seas threatened to swanip the boat, in which were nearly 200 dead cod, but neither water nor provisions. Wet through and chill ed to the bone, they had to row continuously in order to keep the boat?'s head to the sea. At midnight they saw a large stea mer bearing down on them. They got out of the way, and shouted, but no one heard them, and as they had no flares they could not attract attention.

They had a very exciting voyage out, being chased by a cruiser delayed on ac count of mines, and with boat and life-belt drill every day they were kept very busy and interested.

LEND YOUR MONEY TO YOUR COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
LEND YOUR MONEY TO YOUR COUNTRY. While the Recruiting Commit tees are making a strong appeal to the manhood of the country for reinforcements, they ore also tak ing the opportunity of impressing on everybody the necessity for money to carry` on the war as well. "Lend your money to your coun try" is the request with the re mainder at rihe same time that "He Serves who saves." The soldiers have freely offered their lives to their country. as their sacrifice muay be price of victory, but to secure a complete victory your money is also needed. But while the soldier runs all the risks of battle, the investor in thej War Loan is in no danger himself,.) nor is his money, as repayment in 'full is guaranteed by the Com monwealth, with good interest and advantage--not insignificant in themselves-meanwhile. Every War Bond you buy will help to bring victory nearer, and perhaps nt save the unnecessary Ssacrifta of many liveq

YEARS OF SUFFFRING DISTRESS AFTER EVERY MEAL INDIGESTION, BILIOUSNESS,. SPLITTING HEADACHES. MOTHER SEIGEL'S SYRUP WINS BACK HEALTH. Women are liable to many ail ments that men escape altogether, but probably nine-tenths of them could be avoided altogether if care. were taken to keep the digestive organs in perfect working order. When food nourishes you and your blood is pure, you are almost sure to feel well and be well; but whero your stomach and liver are out ol order, food cannot nourish you pros perly because you do not digest it. When, instead of being turned into pure, rich blood, to build up a4 repair the waste of the body, food lies in the stomach, and creates imn purities which pollute the 'blood. clog the system, lower vitality, and make you an easy prey to disease' Mrs. M.

But to-night's work was to -be educational, and several of the young officers were to go; so T. N. was to lead them. The first thing was to survey the ground; and we went down to the trenches in the morning; the co;, cred way was in some places full of water, and we maae some little dashep across the open.

It was a cloudy night, with a thin drizzle and niore rain in the air. T. N. and I drove, nearly upsetting against stumps of trees.

ABORIGINALS' WEAPONS. . There landed in Sydney recently an enthnological specimen of con siderable interest to students in this branch of science. It was brought to Sydney in the steamer Wee Clyde. It takes the form. of a portion 'of' an old tree, which, owing to the. marks it bears upon its trunk, ap peals to all those interested in the. customs of the aboriginals of the South coast of this 'State in their primitive 'form of life.
