P|B LIVER CHILL Liver chill, sneezing, colds, and cold bands and feet are atihis season com' mon afflictions. Whenthe liver, because of some derangement, ceases to act in the proper manner, a certain amount «f bile finds Its way into the blood, and at the same time the blood created from food consumed is of a decidedly poor quality. In this manner the blood becomes congested, the circulation sluggish, and a cold is the result. The circulation of the blood now being much slower than usual, the entire systemis affected. The nerves become unstrung, the appetite poor, and the rest disturbed, '^hebody becomes ex- ': tremeiy susceptible to chills, and the 4 ' | slightest draught causes a. violent i V attack of coughing or sneezing. Many '[ - . so-called remedies fail to get at the ' ( root of the trouble, and only afford temporarunlief. A medicinethat will keep the liver in thorough and regular working order, and the digestion right, will, without doubt, prove the most effective preventiv...

Agatha Webb. THE PURPLE ORCHID. CHAPTER XIX. i-nnn PFiTr.Tvnv. They had reached Widow Jones's cottage in which Philemon was then staying. Tho front door was closed, and so were the lower windows, but in one of the upper casements a movement was perceptible, and in another instant there came into view a woman and man Rilrmm-tinff 'hpftrflpn +!iaivi t.llfi impassive form of Agatha's husband. Holding him in plain sight of the Almost breathless throng below, the woman pointed to where his darling lay and appeared to say somethiug to him; Then there was to be seen a strange sight. The old man, with his thin white locks fluttering in the breeze, loaned forward with a smile and hold ing out his arms, cried in a faint but joyful tone,: ' Agatha!' Then, as jf realising for the first time, that it was death he looked upon, and that the crowd below was a funeral pro cession, hip face altered and he fell back with a low heart-broken moan into the arms, of those who supported liim.

Local Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 8 May 1903
. Local Industry. ? Mr. Thomas Edwards, familiarly known about town as 'Old. Tom,' hns at hife worksliop in 'Caswell Street, a cart' made almost exclusively of ' She 'Oak/? The workmanship is excellent, and when it is known that the whole has been made from logs chopped by Mr-'Edwards in the bush around Peak ixiii, tne Jesuit is an tne more remark able. It is truly worth any one's while to inspect, and is an example of what skill cav. accomplish even when supplied with tho roughest of timber. It is hardly conceivable that the hand some vehicle could be manufactured from such rough and unshapely material. Oak is beautifully, grained, and whea made up and varnished it would be difficult to find a wood to outclass it. Its durability too, is marvellous, or as Mr. Edwards .remarked, -'It will last for ever and then come in handy for firewood.' There-is a pre judice entertained by some people with regard to oak. They consider it is liable to crack, but we are informed on the authority of ...
(To the Editor Peak Hill Express) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 15 May 1903
(To the Editor Peak Mill Express) Sir, — A letter appeared in your last issue, under the above heading, signed ' Critic,' having evidently been in tended as a reply to one of mine, which appeared in a previous issue on the subject. Now Sir, you are well aware that I make a point of ignoringany one signing a mm- de plume, and cer tainly would do in this case, only that ' Critic ' charges me with going out ot my way to insult the Uld. Age Pen sioner. Now Sir, that is a direct and wilful untruth.. Let anyone -who has understanding sufficient, read iny let ter carefully, 'Bhd 1 will rest quite satisfied that my denial will be borne out. I never even offered an opinion on the Pension, further than to say that it is soon likely to exkauBt itself, and let me also say that I kad not the slightest intention of insulting anyone, and may perhaps feel just as keenly for the aged ana poor, as ' Critic ' or any one else — at least I hope I do. Now Mr. ' Critic,' you who pose as a udgo of literary...
OLD AGE PENSIONS. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 15 May 1903
OLD AGE PENSIONS. (To tlie Editor Peak Mil Express J Sir, — I had hoped that if our friend, Bruce HaU, had thought my remarks on the -above worthy of notice, he would have supplied, us with further argument -to substantiate the position taken up by him, but he has done nothing of the kind ; instead, he has given us a rather long dissertation on my merits as a writer. Now, that is a matter that concerns myseli and. can have no 'possible interest for your rea ders. What they are chiefly concerned in, is as to the arguments set forth by each side, therefore I must (whilst thanking him hartily for his generous advice) decline to enter into a discus sion, that is beside the subject at issue, I trust Mr. .Editor, that you will pardon me if I state briefly tho position. My friend lays it down that Old Age Pensioners are paupers, be cause they are in receipt of alms ; and further, he states that it is only right and proper that as such, the name of each and every one of them — good, bad, an...
