Kind Words. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

Rinfud JWords. O, keep not back kind words, I pray, From those who journey day by day With us along life's rugged way. They come with help in time of need, And every one becomes a seed That grows into a helpful deed. You may not see, I may not know, The deeds to which our kind words grow; b1ut they are never lost, I know. Sometime and somewhere we eshll find All kind words gathered, as men bind The wheat, and leave no sheaf behind. And from that storehouse of goodt deeds Grown from all kind words' scattered needs We each shall draw to suit our needs. They coat us little; grudge them not, But seatter them in every spot, And brighten with - many a lot. White Cake.-One-half cup each of butter, milk, cornstarchl; one and one-hllf cops each of white sugar and flour, two ten spoons of haking powder, whites of six egg beaten to a froth. Bake in layers and spread with an icing made oft paslrcised ugar soa whitet Ol g1Slat

Don't Run for the Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 17 August 1894

Don't Run for the Train. The margin of reserve strength at call for emergencies is seldom a large one, and those persons are ill advised who make a great do mand too suddenly. It matters little what .he demand may be, or on what part it is made. The policy of putting forth any great unaccustomed effort, whether of mind or body (to use a popular form of expression), after maturity, is unsound. Whsther the faut that we generally begin to go down the hill of life Beon after we reach its summit, instead of lingering on the higher plain, is accounted for by our habits of modern conventional life may be doubtful, but the fast admits of no question. Practically the total strength of life deprnds principally on the management of the middle age. The secret of longevity is, probably, skill in so .conomising the reserve of vital energy as to make it last out an un usual perioed. Most of the aged folk we know have lived pretty equally-which is a differ ent thing fron tranquillity-a-ter the atta...

HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLB.-Old Wounds, Bores and Ulcers.-Daily experience confirms the fact which has triumphed over all opposition for more than forty years, viz., that no means are known equal to HIolloway's remedies for curing bad legs, bad brcasts, sores, wounds, diseases of the skin, crysipelas, abscesses, burns, scalds, and in truth, all maladies where the skin is broken. To cure these infirmities quickly is of primary im portance, as compulsory collinesment Indoors weakens the general health. The ready means of cure are found in Iolloway's Oint ment and Pills, which heal the sores and expel their cause. In the very worst cases the Ointment has succeeded in effecting a perfect cure after every other means had . ftled in giving adequate relief. ARE YOU AFFLICTED with DYSPE PSIA, CONSTI PATI ON, KIDNEY TROUBLES, BACKACHE, ACHING LIMBS, or LIVER COMPLAINT ? If so, safe remedies are within your reach at a nominal cost.

Th'le scholars of the Presbyterian Sun day School Idrned up in force last Thursday and added to the collection of umibrageous trees now planted in the enclosure.

Indeed, to put it lightly, lie is highly delighted, in fact' hle put up a record at high jumping himself when lihe heard it ; still lie had the authority of an ex-president for his statement, which lihe is glad to, discover is "out of the running." The preliminary sniff of spring that. we were treated to at the close of last week seems to have upset the proof reader's ,'quaniility. All this week lihe has done nothing but compose verses in jubilation over the anticipated incoming of the warmer season ; but as the rules of the office do not provide for free notices, especially when the person in question does not advertise, the editor at the last moment put a sudden stop to his hilarity.

CORRESPONDENCE. WHAT'S IN A NAME? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 24 August 1894

CORRESPONDENCE. WHAT'S IN A NAME ? TO TIIH EDITOIS. Sin,-At the conclusion of lthe meet ing held at Baldwinsville on Saturday night last, for the purpose of msaking arrangements re the public hall, it was proposed to change the name of lBald wins7ille to a more suitable one, The name " Byrneside " or " Burnside " was suggested, and MIr Morrissev was in structed by those few present (some who have not the slightest interest in- the district), to get the name changed to that at once. Now I think it would be unjust to take such steps without calling a public meeting to see whether it is desirable to change the name or not. I think a more suitable and shorter name could be found, as the plea is that " Baldwinsville " is too long a name. I will suggest some names which I think would be more suitable-" Mona," '" Parana," '" Dunalton." Trusting the name will not be changed until a public meeting is called and thanking you in anticipation for inserting this in your issue of Friday 24th, I ....

NEURALGIA [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 24 August 1894

NEURALGIA Is the first, surest and most reliable sign of nerve decay; it is a symptom provided by nature to warn the sufferer of approaching weakness and distress, though in most cases the pain is purely local; the disease is constitutional and local remedies such as liniments, oils and menthols only give temporary relief and do not do the slightest permanent good, for they only act by deadening the sensibility of the affected nerve. The remedy to be of any lasting benefit must be tissue forming and nerve strenthening and must have general invigorating properties; it. nylat. also contain the material to restore the lost tissue to the impoverished nerves, and no remedy except Clements Tonic possesses these wonderful powers. Clements Tonic Ihas been used for thousands of cases by youngland old of both sexes for neuralgia, sciatica, and other nervous complaints, lland we have never heard of a case where it has failed to give quick and prompt relief.

ILLUSTRATED EDUCATION. ProfessorMfuller, of stereopticon fame, is pursuing his educational campaign throughout the Goulburn Valley. After leaving Tatura, where lie showed for six nights, he went to Merrigmn, and gave his truly magnificent exhibition for six evenings. The total programme con sisted of a tour round the world, and formed an object lesson of the most per fect description. Beginning at Mel bourne, Professor Muller took his successive audiences roulnd the earth. He not only showed them all the faulolus places of the world, both ancient. and modern, but by his graphic, yet concise, descriptions and explanations gave as much historical information as often takes half a life-time to gather. Indeed, if the-Education Department was thor oughly alivd to the interests of the children, arrangements would be made with the professor to give exhibitions throu'ghout the colony for their benefit. Tt must not be inferred of course that the stereopticon entertaimnent is for children. It...
