Slightly Confusing. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
Slightly Confusing. One Saturday afternoon a lady en tered a grocer's shop at which she had been a customer for several years. After ordering her weekly list of goods the grocer asked her politely if she would be good enough to take the things with her. She became very indignant, how ever, and asked the reason for treat ing her thus after having been his customer so long. "Well, ma'am," replied the grocer (apologising): "I'm very sorry to have to ask you to take them, but i've ho one here-my right hand's away with a swollen foot."

Cicely Vibart's Love. By ANNIE HAYfJES Author of "Lady Carew's Secret," "Footprints of Fate,' Etc., Etc. (Published by Special Arrangement.) (Copyright.) CHAPTER XIV. "Oh, dear! How tlie summer is passing," Alma Beresford sighed. "Captai" Vibart was saying just now that the horticultural show at Carn forth next week is quite the last event of the season, and then there is nothing until tlie hunting begins." She shivered a little as she spoke, and glanced at the open window, then crossed over and closed it with a bang. Alma never loved fresh air. The only other occupant of the, room-Mrs. Bowman-looked up with a start. "Well, I suppose everything comes to an end sooner or later," she re marked philosophically. "And, if you find it dull here, I daresay you will soon he making your way back to London, with its excitements." Alma strolled back to the fireplace and stood looking down at her inter locutor with a withered smile. She was quite aware that Lord Norcaster's sister did not like ...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XX.) SOME OBSERVATIONS ON WHAT NON-ENLISTERS ARE MISSING. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME (No. XX.) SOME OBSERVATIONS ON WHAT NON-EN LISTERS ARE MISSING. "No game was ever yet worth a rap For a rational man to play, Unless some accident, some mishap, Was wont to force Its way." -Gordon. To one who has seen some service In this war-although not, so far, ac tually in the trenches-it seems al most inconceivable that those young Australians who have not yet enlist ed should prefer to remain at home and see nothing of life in London and France during the most interesting stage of the world's history. Never again in their lives, or probably in the lives of their descendants, will such an opportunity occur to broaden their minds, or to play a part in making the destinies of the future of the world. Do they realise what they are miss ing? Surely not! Are they afraid of death or disablement? Perish tho thought! What does it matter, anyway, whether they get bowled over or not in a great cause? Each of us is a mere atom. Let these young fellows go on guard ...
CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
CHAPTER XV. "Really, Burton and Noave don't seem to get on any quicker tlian the people at Scotland Yard! And yet I was told they were the best firm of private detectives in London," Mrs. Cowman complained, looking up from a lengthy communication which lay beside her plate. Opposite her Lord Norcaster was immersed In his paper. Cicely had not come down to breakfast. It was getting more and more o£ a habit with her to rest in the morning, to make her first appearance just be fore luncheon, though she still said there was nothing the matter with her, that she was quite well. Alma, too, who was still at the Towers, was never an early riser, so the brother and sister were tete-a-tete. "I don't suppose they are likely to find anything out," Stephen said gruffly. "I wish you would let the thing alone, Julia. Bowman behaved very badly to you, and " "I tell you J' have put all that aside," Mrs. Bowman answered, her mouth 'looking' obstinate. "After all, he was my husband. It Is my duty to s...

Gold in a Poultry Yard. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
Gold in a Poultry Yard. THE town of Bright narrowly escaped lha shock of a rude awakening one day last week, and when it is explained thai the alleged discovery of gold in a poultry yard in the heart of the town was to be the cause of the ahuilie, one and all have reason to be deeply grateful for what happened that they were ,not deprived of their buildings by ruthless miners and othorB. It appears that a recent arrival to the town invested in a flock of Mus covy ducks, which breed is noted for ite tablo qualities-inasmuch as when put OD the table you can " cut and come aguin." Expecting some visitors, our friend de cided to entertain the party with a choice duck, and going to the pen secured one that had been well fed and whoso con dition generally gave evidonce that the genial disposition of the host would ad vanco considerably in the minds of his guests. The axe was applied, and in due course the bird was dressed, and greatly admired. The tit-bits of the dainty were not to be ove...

The Cause of Indigestion. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
The Cause of Indigestion MUCH valuable information may be gleaned from a somewhat lengthy medical report just published. For instance, it is made clear that more than 90 per cent, of all cases of indigestion, dyspepsia, etc., are due to the presence of acid in the stomach, and physicians agree that when this fact is realised by the public they will be called upon to treat very few cases of stomach trouble, and the cause of the trouble-the acid in the stomach-may readily be overcome without their aid. An affective preparation for this purpose is said to be bisuratcd magnesia, and they advise those who are troubled with almost any form of digestive trouble to obtain a small quantity of this product from their chemist, and take half a teaspoonful in a little water after meals, as this will prevent fermentation and neutralise any acid which may be formed, thus rendering the food easy of digestion Certainly this plan seems preferable to dosing the stomach with drugs.

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917
Sporting. THE decision to suspend horse racing in Great Britain has not been altogether favourably received. An association of owners, breeders and trainers has dis cussed the subject, and is suggesting that those in authority should permit racing under Jockey Club rules, with a maximum of 600 horses in training Last year over 2000 horses ran in races in Great Britain. Melbourne men who have seen the totalisator in work at Sydney meetings state that so far the machine has not been taken seriously by N S.W. race goers. As with all innovations, it has not worked too smoothly ; but any defects will soon be remedied by experience. The main objection to the totalisator is that the Government percentage of seven per cent, is far too large, and should be reduced. Up to a couple of weeks ago the total Government revenue from the totalisators, which were first used early in January, was only £1138 ; but, so far, only one of the big metropolitan registered clubs has used the machine. Two grea...
