Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 12 June 1914
AFTER THIREE YEARS. (Iime is the best test of truth. -Here is a lVarragul story that has stood the test of time. It Is a story with a point that will come straight home'to many of us. Mrs.. J. Doyle, Witton street, Warragul, says:-" My husband suffered excruciating pains from backache, and was so bad that he was laid up for months, work be Ing quite oit of the question. Even at night he got little or no rest, from the awful pain, and conse quently was always tired and worn out. He consulted several doctors, and tried all sorts of re medies advertised as certain cures, but nothing did him any good, and he was almost in despair of getting well again. He was advised to try Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, so he sent for a bottle. After the first few doses he knew he had found a good remedy. By the time he had taken five bottles he was quite cured. Considermghow ill my husband was, the cure is, I think, a marvellous one. Anyone suffering as hd did cannot do bet ter than take a course of Do...

PLAYS ON WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 June 1914
PLAYS ON WORDS. The paper that is taken in most homes-wall-paper. A run on the banks-when the waves make a dash for them. The tramp has an extensive circu lation, but he is a, poor advertising medium. The only way it pays a person to be his own lawyer is to keep his own counsel. The cat may not be an expert at n',thematlcs, but it can "foot up a co':lmn" easy enough. The cabman is about the only one whn can drive his customers away and keep them too. "Tbh?t air is very familiar," said the musicirn, as a gust of wind took away his hat "I'm - ummoned to another climb." said the lift boy as the indicator an nounced E call from the top floor. "What is that dog barking at?" ask ed a fo:. whose boots were more pol ished than hi, ideas. "Why." said a bystander. "he seeE another puppy in your boots." The tongue talks at the head's cost
HOW SOME HUMBLE FOLK HAVE SAVED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 June 1914
HOW SOME HUMBLE FOLK HAVE SAVED,. Most people imagine that it 's quite impossible to save a penny out of their small wages, and that therefore there is nothing but the workhous! in front of them when they become too old to work. As a matter of fact it depends entirely uponi the man and not upon the wages, and this will clearly be seen from the-following in stances: Mr. and Mrs. Belfleld, an Ashton under-Lyne couple, who have been employed in a cotton factory for the greater part of their lives, recently gave £1000 to the Ashton District In irmary in order to endow a cot. Mlr. and Mlrs. Belfleld have been married forty-eight years, and during that time their joint earnings have hardly ever amounted to more than 44/- a week. When it is stated that neither has ever bad any assistance in the shape of legacies, their gift of £1000, which by no means represents the whole of their savings, is simply an amazing one. But they began saving in earn est when they were married. Their joint earni...
THE EVER NEW STORY OF COAL TAR. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 June 1914
'THE EVER NEW STORY OF COAL TAR. Nowhere In the whole world, can -there be found a more striking illus tration of the wealth that lies in what was once regarded as a waste than in the huge chemical works that have been built at Tlberiehld, Lec'rkuscn, Griesheim, Ludwigshaten and else where in Germany, in all of which coal tar in some form is used as tihe raw material. So frequcrntly has the story of coal tar been told that it Is now familiar in all its wonderful de tails to every well-read man. Yet the complete significance of the discovery of mauve by Perkin over sixty years ago is not really driven home until one has seen the enormous German chemical factories, in each of which thousands of men and women are em ployed in the task of extracting dyes, perfumes, flavors, and drugs from de rlvatives of what was once a noisome ooze. From the coal tar which gas-com panies once disposed of with difficulty, I an industry capitalised at £150,000,000 has grown. In 1910, Germany made aniline...

The Lighting Question. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 June 1914
The Lighting Question.-Dunng the discussion on the electric light ing question, at the council meet ing last Wednesday, all the coun cillors admitted that they needed the advice of an expert to enable them to arrive at an intelligent de cision on the merits of gas and electricity for the lighting of Tra ralgon. But for the fact that the Tyers Lime Syndicate will very probably-be in a position to supply the current at a lower rate than the council could supply it to clon sumers, an expert on the subject would have been engaged to pre pare a report. In postponing the matter until the company is in a position to make a definite pro posal, the council acted wisely, but it is very unfortunate that it will be many months before the coipany has reachea that stage, as-there is so much initial work to do. It is not at all unlikely that residents of Traralgon will have to wait about twelve months for it, and, presuming an agreement is arrived at, quite another 6 months before the plant ana ca...

TRAVELLING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 16 June 1914
STRAVELLING SHEEP. -o Owing. to the dry weather, and consequent shortage of ieed, lri East Gilppsland, mobs of shreep are being travelled over. the roads in this and nelghbourmg sh.res. This practice is giving the shire ranger a good deal of,, tr6uble, and it is argued that large6 land owers have no right to take the grass from ofR the roads, for which other people pay grazing fees. The Act provides thattra velhng sheep must be mn charge of a drover, and be kept well m hand; also that they must move not less than six miles 'each day by the most direct route to their destination- It also stipulates that the owner or person mn charge of the sheep must give. landowners notice of mntention to travel by a certain 'road. This provision was made so that landowners can take measures to prevent their sheep getting " boxed" up with the tra velhng mob. Those m charge .of s.heep rarely, it ever, respect this stipulation. Hence ,they are hla ble to prosecution. -This phase was informally discuss...
