Further proof of Zam-Buk's remark able healing power over crippling leg ulcers has just come to hand from Auck. land, N.Z. It concerns Mrs J.

Ulceration set ii, and soon the limb became highly inflamed, The ulcers got bigger and bigger, and the constant pain made my existence a misery. A -night I would toss about in fearful agony, wishing for the end of everything. There were periods, often for three months at a time, when I dare not put my foot to theground. "For years I was under medical men, and, in different towns, during my long period of suffering I must-have had alto gether about twelve different doctors. :But the ulcers seemed to go from bad to worse.

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 23 March 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. SiR,-I feel constrained to write you in terms of appreciation of Pastor Russell's sermons, appear ing in the "Gazette." Imay say I have read quite a lot of Pastor Russell's writing, and it seems to me that the more one studies his writings in conjunction with the scriptures, the more grand and harmonious the Divine purpose seems. to appear. How beautifully, too, they show forth the Divine character, the infinite love, and justice, and wisiom, and power of God ;:and also his gracious and benevolent designs towards all, whereby he would have all men to be saved and to come to a know ledge of the truth. Yours, etc., R. L. SIMKIN, Digby,
CONSIDER THE FIELD LILIES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 23 March 1914
- ONSIDER THE FIELD -..LILIES. BY PASTOR RUSSELL. Text: "Why take ye thought for ral nent? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin; and yet 1 say unto you, that even solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so ·lothe the grasl of the field, which to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven [as Fuel], shall He not much iiore clothe you, D pe of little faith?" (Matt. vi. 28-30). ?he Great Teacher, we are told, taught in parables and dark sayings-not easily comprehended. Even his disciples were in the dark concerning the meaning of many of his statements until the Holy Spirit at Pentecost gave them enlightenment, a' Jesus had promised. This being true, we are not surprised that many have misappre bended some of the Master's dark sayings respecting the cutting off of a hand or a foot, the pluckingout of an eye, respect ing undying worms, quenchless fires, oi even the text of to-day. There are people of ...

Show Printing & Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 23 March 1914
Show Printing & Advertising In the report read at-the an nual meeting of the Port Fairy Agricultural society, on Saturday last, reference was made to the in creasing expenditure under the 'heading of printing and advertis ing. In 1910 cut-throat prices prevailed, and the total was L30 4s 6a, the previous year's total being L48 13s 11d. In 1912 the sum paid for advertising was L52 19s 6d, and last year (notwith standing increased prices for paper and a 30 per 'cent. advance in wages.under the Country Prin ters' Wages Board determination), the society only paid 28s 2d ad ditional for the whole of the year's advertising and printing, of that total L15 was expended out of the town in advertising, purchase of ribbons, etc. The statement that there is any perceptible in crease in the printing is therefore a fiction. Besides the society got a return of 11 14s. We' observe by the balance-sheets that the printing and advertising of all the other societies in the Western dis tricts ar...
BURRLESS TREFOIL. A PLANT OF GREAT VALUE TO GRAZIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 24 March 1914
BURRLE'SS TREFOIL. A PLANT OF GREFAT VALUE TO : GRAZIER.S. E::Two species of plant known in common English as Medicks, or more scientifici- ally, as belonging to the genus Medic agb;o, shliould appeal to Australian gra ziers (says an article in "Dalgety's .Re-: view.") The name of the plant is said to be derived from the word "Me dike," the name given by the Grecian scientist Diocorides to a gra~s obtained by him from Media. The term, hoiw ever, conveys but little to the average Australian; but when he is informed that lucerne is one of its species-that plant being known botanically as Medi-. cage sativat-that trifolium, or clover; is another, and that there are about forty other useful fodder plants beasr ing the same generic title, he wil at once grant that the world of agricul ture owes a very large debt indeed to the genus Medicngo. None of these forty odd species are Australian natives,; but a number of them have been intro duced-either purposely or fortuitously -ipto the conti...
