How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Acids. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
How to Neutralise Dan gerous Stomach Acids. Few people besides physicians realise the importance of keeping the food contents of the stomach free from acitl fermentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot take place while the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and distended by acid and wind-tho results of fermenting food in tho stomach. To secure perfect digestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid neutralised. For this purpose physi cians usually recommend getting a little bisurated magnesia from tho chemist and taking half a toaspoonful ately after eating. They recommend bisurated magnesia because it is pleasant to take, has no disagreeablo after effeots, and instantly stops fer mentation, neutralises tho acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digested. The regular use of bisurated mag nesia-be sure you get the BisuitATliDi as other kinds of magnesia aVe ui little value-is an absolute guarantee of healthy, normal digestion, for ...

A MERCILESS JUDGE. A merciless "judge is Father Time. Before him the weak r.tul the wanting go to the wall. Only the truth can stand. For fivo years the following statement from a Ballarat resident has withstood this sternest of all tests. Mrs .1. D. Dale, 103 Grant Street "West, Ballarat, says :-" For twenty fivo years I suffered with a weak, aching back. Sometimes the pains across my loins were terrible, and I would not be able to stoop down, or move about. I consulted doctors, nnd tried a ' great many kidney remedies, i but got no permanent benefit until I ! obtained Doan's Backachs Kidney Pills. This wonderful remedy strengthened my buck, and banished | the pain. For twolve months I have beou splendid, and Doan's Backache Kidney Pills alone are responsible for ray cure. I always keep this remedy in the house, and take an occasional dose, just as a precaution, and because 1 think the kidneys need a little help sometimes." / Five yeais later, Mrs Dalo says: I am still free of back...
SPORTING NOTES. CLUNES FIRE BRIGADE. COMPETITION FOR MAYOR'S TROPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
SPORTING NOTES* (BY " PAKEHA.") OLUNES FIRE BRIGADE. COMPETITION FOR MAYOR'S TROPHY. On Monday ftiight last the hand some gold medal presented to the brigade by the Mayor (Cr J. F. Phil lips, J.P.)i was competed for. There was a good attendance of the public to witness the running, which through out was of the finest character, and most interesting, the finishes being close, which spoke volumes for the handicappor, Mr Geo. Hay. There were three events, viz., Disabled Y, Marshall Event, and Flaked Hose, and points of 3, 2, and 1 wore allotted the placed men in each event. Natur ally, the winner of many trophies, R. Galloway, was favorite, and was all there to back himself to win, but like many favorites he went down. The winner, J. Dowries, won a trophy previously, and was confident that the back uien would have their work cut out to beat him. He is one of those firemen who believes in practice, and his success was due to practice. His . work was first class, and well merited the app...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
Its great fun for me to watch some of my competitors. When they commence in business they seJJ everything the public want, but when they get on their feet a bit " they begin to put on side " "hoighty toighty "-"they don't keep this" and. won't stock that-just as if their customers were all brainless idiots, with no opinion of their own and lucky to be supplied by them at all. I once had a 'shop- close to one of those fellows and one of the lines he would'nt keep was R o bu r tea-and my word the number of customers of his who used to come to my shop to get it would surprise you, and they used to buy other things from me at the same time. I'm an old stager at the game and I take jolly good care to keep whatever I'm asked for-talking about R o b u r-it's not my place to boost it up-there isn't enough to be made out of it, for that but it's really Astonishing how people grow, to like.it and how hard it is . to get them off it once they, get started. 1 sell about as much of the No. 2 Gra...
YOU NEVER CAN TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
YOU NEVER CAN TELL. Spindrift anil bilge and the world turns over! What is the dross and what the gold? The Bnalte and the lark lia' nests in the clover, And which is best when the tale is told? Thrice I sinned-oh, the heavens' joy ance! Breasts angelic shook wi' the joke; Once did good-oh, earth's annoy ance! Hell to pay and the bank gone broke! James drank poison at love's deris ion; John swigged ale, and swank in the sun, Throve, and came to a dark decision, And, "Christ-that I were the other one!" Setli in the swamp and Dan on the mountain Either dreamt that he chose his times; Dan bent young to a fevered foun tain; Setlx grew old by the older slimes. The stolen dollar in Larry's pocket Turned a bullet to Harry's side It missed by a hair his mother's loc ket: The thief lives yet and the good man died. Justice! Justice! Where is thy pal ace, Hope o' the planet's dark romance? Whose is the blood Jn thy hrnken chalice, Slave o' chance? But there is no chance! -George Sterling.
A FRIEND ADVISED HER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
A FRIEND ADVISED HER. The following letter from Mrs. Thomas Brown, of Healesvllle, Vic., will prove interesting to -many of our readers: "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complSfrit. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation with terrible pain all over my body, especially across my back. My whole body was racked with pain, and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared .very little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope when a friend advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it, and derived great 'benefit from taking the contents of the first bottle. I continued to take the medi cine, getting stronger and better every dry. I soon regained my former strength and energy, the pains left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy." Warner's Safe Cure is a wonderful r edy In cases of kidney an...
His Turn Came. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
His Turn Came. She stood there and glared at him: "And you mean to stand there and . ask me to press your trousers," she demanded. ".Why, yes, my dear," responded Mr. Stubb; "is that asking too much?" "I should say it is, John Henry Stubb. I'd have you know that when you married me you did not marry a flat-iron." That evening his turn came. "John, dear," said Mrs. Stubb, "just button , up my blouse before you,. There's a good man." "Nay, nay, M-nrJn- vVlien you ac cepted ino jou did not say 'yes' to a buttonhook," and, picking up his / gl ves, he departed, leaving Maria too amazed to answer.
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is tlio actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can give It in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr, Zahnizer was waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile. Messrs. Stono and Co.,' meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up to 7%d. ner pound for porkers (prime small), and tor mi...* C...
SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up their heads. A rickety fence Is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. It Is just aB good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits tho kindling and carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by skilled...
LIME WASH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
LIME WASH. The following formula for lime wash, with an added disinfectant, is also recommended: To prepare five gallons-Slake 7% lbs. of lime, using hot water if necessary to start action. Mix to a creamy consistency with water. Stir iu 15 fluid ounces of 95 per cent, pure liquid carbolic acid, and make up five gallons. Stir thor oughly and strain through a wire sieve, if it Is not to be applied by means of a spray nozzle. Where di sease has been known to exist, do not only disinfect the entire cowshed according to the above plan, but also flood the floors with the lime and dis infectant wash combination.
SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had rea son to complain of the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to blame to some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed. The seed potato which is most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from his lines all that fail to come within this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser and to . those who handle his consignments. Not only will he ho able to command a higher price in a bare market, but in a full market his stock will bring him quick and good returns, while that of his less careful neighbor will hang fire and possibly at the last be sacrified. Diseased and scabby potatoes should on no account bo allowed to pass. Knobby and misshapen sets should also be strictly excluded. It needs but very few of these to completely spoil a whole line. The result of growing from the same stock year after year would ...
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "I have a little story* to toll you, boys," the old doctor said to the young people the other evening. "One day-a long hot day it had heen, too -I met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you would take this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. Now I was ? a boy of twelve, not fond of work, and was just out of the liayfield, where I had been- at work since daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into town. I wanted to get my supper and to wash and dress for singing school. My first impulse was to refuse, and to do it harshly; for I was vexed that he should ask me af ter my long day's work. If I did re fuse he would go himself-he was a gentle, patient old man-but some thing stopped me-one of God's good angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' he said, 'I was going myself, but somehow I don't feel very strong to day....

A Hint to Lovers. Willie and Maggie had been 'busy courting for over two years, meeting every niglit in Hope-street. About a fortnight ago, Willie, In parting wltli his beloved, made the usual remark: "I'll meet ye In Hope-street, next Wednesday nicht. Mind ye be punc tual." " 'Deed, ay, lad," replied Med, wl' a merry twinkle in lier eye, "we bae met no'o a lang timfe in Hope-street, . an' I was jlst- thinking that it wis high time we were shifting our tryst in'-place a street further along. Whit wad ye say to Union-street?" WiUie has taken the hint, and the invitations are out.
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? Wo get from the land what we put into It. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; if wo plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shado of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprisa -wo miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm aB a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we roap a perennial harvest in the rjjie years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way lie pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into liis work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are bound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of tho heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
CAN YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
Some men seem to have such a good idea of balance that they can pick a long ladder up in the middle, the first pop. Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength. Just take those ladders now, balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around the side pieces at the right place. Or, paint the round at the pivotal point some color other than that of the rest of the ladder.
WEIGHT OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
WEIGHT OF SILAGE. . Silage always loses some in weight, due to evaporation from the top, but the main part o£ the settling is due to the simple packing down of the silage in the silo. Ordinary silage weighs about 45 pounds to the cubic toot after it has settled in the silo. A silo 12 x 24 feet holds approximate ly 55 tons, or 110,000 pounds of corn silage.
DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 19 June 1914
DID YOU? Did you give him a lilt .' He's a brother of man, And bearing about ail the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He waB slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road, Or did you juot let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? Did you ask what it was-why the quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When wo have a special work to do we first "clear the decks for action." If there Is an absorbing piece of literary work to bo accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed- with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, ho first rids his calendar of omall appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, In order to uave his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This Is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. -T The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and Inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It | Is her habit to clear away her dishes and c...
