Terrible Shipping Disaster. OVER 1000 LIVES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 June 1914
Terrible Shipping OisMster OVER 1000 LIVES LOST. One of the most appalling disasters in maritime history occurred in the' early hours of Friday morning during a dense fog off Father Point, near Rimouski, on the right hank of the River St Lawrence, which at this point is 30 miles wide. The Canadian Paoific liner Empress of Ireland, 14,191 tons,.which had loft Quebec on Thurday afternoon for Liverpool with 1387 souls on board, was lyinp practically hove-to in the fog at 3 i a.m., when she was run down by the i Norwegian collier Storstad, G02S tons. ? The huge liner was struck amidships. A tremendous rent was made in the vessel's side, and plates were ripped away right down to the. stern. With in ten minutes the liner sank, and of the 1387 people on board only 355 were saved. The official totals of the saved-and dpad are: DEAD ... ... 1032 RESCUED ... ... 355 SCENE AFTER COLLISION. The scene immediately after the collision * baffled description. ' The shrieks of passengers rudely awake...
Maundy Money. QUAINT CEREMONIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 June 1914
Maundy Money. QUAINT CEREMONIAL. For tin hour yesterday afternoon, Westminster Abbey gave itself up to one of those quaint surviving solemni ties associated with Holy Week (says the " Daily News" April 10). It was Maundy Thursday, which commemo rates the institution of the Eucharist. The ceremony of washing the feet in imitation of our Lord's example was discontinued after the death of James XI. The distribution of the Maundy .alms remains, and this ceremonial took place before an immense congregation yesterday. The money amounts to as many pence in silver as the years of the King's age. Hence there were 49 pence for 49 men and .49 women. Be sides this each woman had 35s and each'man 45s in lieu of .clothing. A second distribution included £2 10s apiece., The alms were placed on a tabio at the-foot of the steps leading to the sacrarium. As many of the old folks as could conveniently surround the table did so, the remainder being given privi leged seats in the choir. And a curious mi...
DYNAMITE EATERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 2 June 1914
DYNAMITE EATE3S The story has again been circulated that certain people, notably men 'en gaged in its manufacture, are in the habit of eating dynamite as an in. toxicant! This time it comes from Japan, and the particular men in need of the tonic are said to be those employed at the Ifure Naval Station. An official of Messrs Nobel, the famous manufacturers ot explosives, assured a "Daily News" representative that the story was not only an old one, but that tho assertion that English and American sailors wore addicted to the habit had been disproved. An ingenious theory was.propounded 'by Mr Shelley, of the Apothecaries' Hall, however. He reminded "The Daily . News" inquirer that nitro glycerine taken; iu minute quantities stimulated tlie pulse, relaxed the iartories, and caused the blood to flow ' ttfalie head...

Three Suffragettes. DUCKED IN A POND. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 June 1914
Three Suffragettes. DUCKED IN A POND. Three men were charged at the South-Western police court on Wed nesday with attempting to duok three i Bufiragettes m a pond at Streatham. . Mr Drummond,the magistrate, dis charged defendants with caution after hcaripg the defence, reuiarlripg that it was impossible to shut one's eyes to the behavior of the suffragettes, whiob had created a strong feeling of resent ment and disgust. During the hearing of -the charges arising out of the raid at Maida Vale, Grace Roe and Nellie Hall, tho ac cused, continuously interrupted the proceedings. Kalli^ Hall warned the magistrate that his house would be burned down, The polioe produced a letter pur porting to be signed by a woll-known suffragette, in which she stated that a lady's secretary had planned to burn down her mistress's house iu . revenue for her non-militanoy.

No More Indigestion. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 June 1914
No More Indigestion, WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. It seeuis reasonable to Suppose that in a short time there will be no more indigestion or dyspepsia. The old style " digestives" such as bismuth) pepsme, charcoal, soda, etc., which after all are only temporary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple antacid, known to chemists as BISURATED magnesia, mth the result that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach' trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered .that, according to available statistics, over ninety per cent, of all stomach troubles are due to acidity. Bisurated magnesia may readily be obtained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a-teaspoonfiil I taken in a little water after meals immediately neutralise all harmful acids in the, stomaoh, prevent fermen tation, and thus render the food easy 9! digestion.

On The Verge. Many a one brought back from the brink. There are critical times in our lives, when it seems as if we must let go. But we cling to life with a wonderful tenacity. Many diseases -are very de pressing in their worst Btages, and we get to the very brink sometimes; yet the hope of survival is great. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills have brought b*ck many from the verge, and given thorn a new lease of life. The follow ing case should be ot interest. Read it. Mrs E. Annear, Smeaton Road, Olunes, says :-"I was a great sufferer with my kidneys for many years. There was an awful pain in my back, which never seemed to leave uie day or night, and I was often so ill that I bad to stay in bed for days at a tiuie. Every movement sent a twinge through my kidneys, like the stab of ft knife, and I used to sometimes feel as if my back would break. Hearing that Doan's Backache Kidney Pills were good for complaints similar to mine, I decided to try them, and I am very thankful I did, for a co...

FEDERAL LEGISLATORS. THEIR STANDING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 June 1914
FEDERAL LEGISLATORS. THEIR STANDING. Beyond all doubt the Federal Parliament stands lower in public j esteem than it did. To a certain extent its fall wan inevitable. No j church, no society, no organisa-! tion ever did, or ever will do, all that enthusiasts expect when they found it. Moreover at the outset, each of the States sent the ablest ot its politicians to one or other of the Commonwealth Houses- When men like Barton, Braddon, Deakin, Kingston, Playford, Reid and Turner were removed by promotion to the bench, sickness, death or other happening, tbero wern no State mbmbers of the same calibre to take their place. Moreover, men of mark outside Parliament had begun to realise that to spend the greater part of the year in a politi cal capital remote from their homes, meanB complete sacrifice of business or professional in terests. 1 ' j But from time to time, and notably during the past year the Federal Houses have loot public esteem by gratuitous displays of narrow party feelin...
