YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently' in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands lave derived from it before. When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— w . SANDER'S EXTRACT.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 September 1914

LADIES' LETTER. In the work of the patriotic sewing ; circles and guilds, too much emphasis cannot be laid upon the importance of keeping the material away from dust and its attendant microbes, for it may : mean infinite suffering to the wearers ' in hospital later on. Also, no one suf- ' l'ering from infectious colds or illness should work on the garments for sick ; soldiers. It is only cruelty to allow j such carelessness, and the strictest i sanitary precautions should be ob- ; served. None of the garments, nor ; the material, should be allowed on the j floor, unless there be a clean sheet, j or clean paper, first laid down. Every precaution should be taken, and j every portion of the garments and the working materials should be kept scrupulously clean. So much for the hygienic aspect. The other side is as important. The work should be cut out by someone who understands the task, and it should be seen that garments are in proportion. The monstrosities of gar ments in some instanc...

TO CAPTAINS OF RIFLE CLUBS. Captain Fechner, of the Moe Rifle Club, has received the following circu lar from the Rifle Clubs' Office, Vic toria Barracks, Melbourne: — 1. With reference to circular of the 6th ult., relative to restriction of rifle practice, I am directed to inform you that ordinary rifle club practice may be resumed on rifle club ranges, such practice being confined, however, to indifferent shots of last year and new members joining.- In this connection, it is desired that experienced shots confine their attention to coaching those mentioned above, and that as a temporary measure, where' the supply of rifles to club3 is insufficient, to pro vide one for each member of a club, those experienced shots already in possession of a rifle bring theirs on to the range for the use of new members joining. It is also expected that where clubs are in possession of a miniature range that full advantage be taken of that fact when instructing new mem bers. 2. Under the above circu...

A Trio. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 September 1914

A Trio. It was company field-training. The captain saw a young soldier trying to cook liis breakfast ..with, a badly made fire. Going to him, he showed him how to make a quick-cooking fire, saying: "Look at the time you are wasting. When 1 was on the West Coast 1 often had" to hunt my breakfast. - I used to go about two miles in the jungle, shoot my food, skin or'pluck it, -then cook and eat it, and return to the camp under the half-hour." Then he unwisely added: "Of course, you have heard of the West Coast." "Yes,, sir," replied the ' young sol dier; "and also of Ananias and Baron Munchausen, too." Don't keep all your cheerfulness for strangers, and pack away your pleas ant manners . as soon as ever you get inside the door of home. Vinegar placed in a bottle of dried up. glue will moisten and make it li quid again.

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 September 1914

THE WAR. Sergeant-major Shields, instructor attached to the 48th Infantry Regi ment, paid a visit to Moe on Wednes day last. He was met by Capt. J. W. Fechner (of the Moe Club), and ar rangements were made for drill once a fortnight. The first drill (which it is compulsory for each member of the club to attend) will be held on the 23rd September—on the Moe Race course, at 2 o'clock sharp. No rifles are required on this—this first—oc casion. Efforts are being made to induce the Tangil Club to attend the above drills, and thus save its members the time it would occupy in journeying to Mel bourne for instruction—a matter of some weeks. It should be distinctly understood that every member of the .Moe Club must attend these drills, failing which it will entail the whole of the members leaving the district for some metropoli [ tan area, where they will receive the necessary instruction in these matters.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 16 September 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. When a sponge is slimy, steep it in vinegar and water for twelve hours. To prevent milk from turning sour, drop into it a piece of loaf sugar. A bag of salt standing where there is a smell of fish will absorb the aroma. When making soups or stews, if there is too much flavor of one par ticular vegetable, a sprig of parsley added will equalise the flavoring. After washing lamp-chimneys, try polishing them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine and prevents it from cracking. To. ease a corn which is often pain ful from long standing, touch it with a little oil of peppermint, and the soreness will be wonderfully lessen ed. Dissolve a lump of soda in a little hot water and add it to the blue water. This prevents -the blue from settling in the clothes, and makes them beau tifully white. ' " Starched material, even though it keeps clean longest, should be avoid ed during warm weather. The starch - prevents a free current of air passing through. Used in wat...
