Secrets of a Complexion Specialist. A SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION BY WHICH A SPECIALIST QUICKLY RESTORED HUNDREDS OF RUINED COMPLEXIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
Secrets of a Complexion Specialist. A SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION BY WHICH A SPECIALIST QUICKLY RESTORED HUNDREDS OF RUINED COMPLEXIONS. At a recent conference of specialists an interesting discussion took place in regard to the ways and means for beautifying and removing bad com plexions, and experts in this line all agreed to the great value of what is known among specialists as Floxoin Lotion. A well-known skin and com plexion specialist present gave some wonderful instances of cases where his patients had restored their dis figured complexions in an exceedingly short time by applying this lotion, which consists of two ounces of rose water, one dram of Tincture Benzoin. and two ounces Flowers of Oxzoin, and can be prepared by any chemist, many of whom keep it put up ready for u.e under the name of Floxoin Lotion. He advised the application of the lotion night and morning with a soft cloth or sponge, and said that he had never known it to fail in remarkably improving the complexion and re...
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
YHE'FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and can't eat more than one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sleep. Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk about the blackness. Nobody ever did any good yet by what country folks call "stuff ing and stewing," which means keep ing one's mind in worrimcnt and agi tation, and wondering wlether this thing will come right or that thing fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you nxill get along better than any amnomit of fretting would allowv ;ou. 1lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do you know that five minutes of high .excitement takes as much out of a person as five hours' hard work, and ten 'minutes' deep grief will often make one downright ill. Strive to k...

WIVES WORTH WINNING. Well-Known Novelists on Ideal Womanhood. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914
WIVES WORTH WINNING. Well-Known Novelists on Ideal Womanhood. Tastes, of course, d:ffer, but men appear to want a wife who never ex isted except in romantic dreams. She must be a model of all virtues and possess no failings. She must be "so pretty that we are always proud, and so good that we are never uneasy; a woman who wears well and looks her 'best in two-year-old gowns; who ap plies the adjective 'important' in re lation to our work, our food, and our desire for unfettered holidays; who laughs at our small jokes and pre serves a marble face when we are scored off by others; with whom we have the massively comforting, sensa tion that she will never recognise the plain, staring fact that we are not brave, not wise, not clever. The words quoted are those of that popular novelist, 'Mr. W. B. Maxwell, and '"the astounding, incredible thing," he concludes, in his comments on the sort of woman a man likes, "is that, wanting all that, we sorletimes get it." A truer note, perhaps, is st...

A Standard for the King's English. A CONFERENCE WANTED. (Chief Inspector of the University of London.) [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914
A Standard -for the King's English. A CONFERENCE WANTED. By PROFESSOR WALTER RIPPMANN, M.A. (Chief Inspector of the. University of London.) What is good English? What. form of English speech ought we to impart in our schools? What should be our atti.ude to dialect speech? These questions are forcing Ihem selves on our attention. The interest in the spoken language is becoming very keen. Of tiis we have indications on every side. Dr. Bridges. the Poet Laurc ate, has recently issued a tract on the "Present State of Englisli Pronuncia tion," and under his auspices a society for pure English has been founded. Mr Bernard Shaw shows his wonted alert ness by presenting a professor of plion elics in his "Pygmalion." We have a Poetry Society that lays stress on the reading aloud' of verse The Committee on English appointed by the National Education of America, in its recently published report, states that "all ex pression in speech demands distinct and natural articulation, correct pronuncia...
THE TENT MISSION. The Rev. Joseph Nicholson and the Seventh Day Adventists. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914
THE TENT MISSION. The Rsv. Joseph Nicholson and the Seventh Day Adventists. A review on the attack made by the Rev. Joseph Nicholson, on Seventh Day .Adventists, was the subject pre sented at the Tent on Sunday evening. Pastor Steed, the speaker, said it seemed very strange that men like Mr Nicholson, would so prevert the Scripture in the way that he has done when trying to support a weak cause. In order to do away with the Sabbath he jumbles the ceremonial and the moral law together, and says that it is all abo'ishrd, and claims to prove it by using Scripture. Satan did this to Christ, so then it is not always a proof that the thing is right because -an individual uses Scripture, Surely this. ev. gentleman knows that the ordiance of circumcision is not in the Law of God . He has quoted Eph. 2: 15 and Col. 2: 18 19. Scriptures that refer plainly, as all Bible students .know, to the ceremonial law of the Mosaic dispensation and are nailed to the cross. John Wesley says: "The reader o...

Water and Light Cut Off. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 21 April 1914
Water and Light Cut Off. At about 10 o'clock on Tuesday night last, owing to the electric light sud denly failing, the "tochester township was plunged in dar'kness. The cause of the trouble was the moving of the large fly-wheel on the shafting This jammed against the bearing, rendering it impossible to drive the engine. The stoirage at the power house is suppos.d to carry 48 hours' supply, but only 30 per cent .of the plates are of any use, the balance being rotten and useless. As a consequence, instead of 48 hours' supply, there is about 10 minutes'. When the engine stops the pumping of water also stops in addition totlhe light, and the town was without both light and water until about 10 o'clock_ next morning. The .Commonwealth...
