DECEASED SOLDIERS' CERTS Fl GATES. The suggeslion has boon matte with respectto soldiers who have died on war service iiiat the Defence depart ment should issue to the next of kin some form of commemorative certi ficate. setting out the military record of the deceased soldier.

DON'T EXPRIMENT [Newspaper Article] — Recorder — 24 February 1919
BOHT EXPERffVJEFJTw. It is no time to try experiments, especially in medicine, but to rely on' remedies which have proved their worth and are known to be effective. If a burglar was found in your room one would feel very nervous in relying on some unused contrivance, but if o weapon that had proved its worth was on hand one would feel much easier. This, is the case at the present mo ment. The public is threatened with a dreadful scourge, and it can only be checked and stamped- out by keeping the general good health of the people up to the holiest pitch. Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are known and have been used by thousands,- and in the present emergency nothing belter at any- price could be used to' keep the system in a healthy condition. They are a searching, cleansing remedy and taken with an occasional 10 grain dose of Aspirin will go a long way in pre venting infection from Influenzal pneumonia. .

.Prisoners of War COMING OUT OF GERMANY AUSSIES TRICK FRITZ: : Over a thousand Australians Have now reached London (writes a 'Sun' correspondent) after varying terms of imprisonment in Germany, and it will console their relatives at home to ; know that for the most part lisey have come through all their trials and privations little impaired either ment ally or physically. - I have sqen several hundred of those men, and talked with many of them.

Some are over-wrought and nervy, some a trifle bewildered by the sudden transition .end contact with friendly men and women. A...
