HOW TO BREAK UP A COLD. It may be a surprise to many to learn that a severe cold can be com pletely broken up in one or two day's time. To do this, however, prompt action is necessary. The first symptom of a cold is j a dry loud cough and a profuse watery discharge from the nose. When Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken every two hours on the first appearance of* these symptoms it counteracts the effect of the cold and restores the system to a healthy condition within a day or two. Sold by W. Grant Morton, Bac chus Marsh, and A. Comben & Co. Werribee. Schedule A. (Clause 4 (b).)

THE CONCERT [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 January 1916

THE CONCERT Ii the evening was not as well at tended as the programme deserved, owing perhaps to the fact that Miss Amy Castles was to appear the fol lowing night. But those who at * tended were not disappointed, for * Madame Lena Conly was in fine voice, it is doubtful if ever better. She still retains all the freshness of youth, and all her numbers were well received and encored. She sang "Poor wandering one," "Sons of dear old Australia," (a very good recruiting song), and "The nightin gale" and the irose." Little Miss Conly made her debut on a public platform, and nmde a complete suc cess- of it by repeating the popular recruiting song given by her mother. She had to respond to an encore. Mr. P. G. Wilmot, programmed as a bass, gave "The Trumpeter," and "Till the boys come home." A little more enthusiasm would have im proved both. Mr. Victor Trotman is a trained elocutionist, and gave some humorous recitals from "On our Selection," and Dickens' works, "Mr. Pickwick forgets his w...

BOXING DAY SPORTS, BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 January 1916

'`OXING DAY SPORTS, BACOHUS MARSH. Another year has come and gone, with a number of successes and fail ures to record. It is pleasing to have to record a financial success for the above event-and how easy it could have been a failure, by meet ing the next day's weather condi tions, for instance, when the tiier mometer rose to 102 in the shade, culminating in a thunderstorm, with 63 points of rain (the latter most welcome for domestic supply, &c.) However, the sports day itself was fine, although a trifle warm, and as large a crowd as could be expected assembled-some £40 being taken at the gates; whilst the Sunbeam bri gade (commonly called the ladies comnuittee) by their untiring work in serving out refreshments added another £40. Too much cannot be said in praise of these "sunbeam ers," who, year in and year out, serve the treble purpose of relieving the sports committee of the catering responsibility, adding to the funds, and providing for the wants of the public.

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 January 1916

BLACK WOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A promising reef has been dis covered on the Trojan lease, at Yankee Creek. Mr. A. Turner, fore mian of the Trojan syndicate, whilst prospecting on the Eastern boundary of the lease, discovered a reef which averages about 2ft. in width, and is estimated to yield about llozs. to the ton. The lode has been traced and cut in several places for a con siderable distance, and prospects well for the whole length. After the hol idays, the reef will be further de veloped. This find will doubtless be the means of drawing attention to this long-neglected portion of our goldfield.
