One of the culprits had a pro nounced Wellington nose, the other possessed one of the ordinary kind. They flitted to America, and as they Sknew that justice was close upon their Strack, after consulting a specialist, and Sto if possible prevent identification in case of arrest, they underwent the opera tion of transplantation of nioses, which -the surgeon successfully performed.

Shylock in a New Disguise. The Cobden State Schools' excursion committee met last week, when the following communication from the Railway Department was read: -" In connection *vith your recent excursion to Port Fairy, the statement of tickets disposed of is to hand. As 101 junior tickets were sold you were entitled to di. pose of 20 senior scholars and 10 teachers. There are therefore 32 of those tickets sold in excess, for which adult fares must be paid. In the same manner, as 40 junior tickets were sold at Camperdown you were entitled to 8 seniors and 4 teachers, and .a total of 20 of these has been sold. Adult fares must also be paid for the 8 sold in excess in this instance.

Dairy Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 March 1914
Dairy. Notes. As a plantcapable of. yielding a large amount of valuable forage under a great variety; of soil and climatic conditions, maize is-with out an equal. Legume, and especially red clover silage, has a rank odour, and is not relished by stock. How ever, lucerne and cow peas have been used with good results. Meaty udders are undesirable. They are filled up with fatty and connective tissues-the wrong kind to produce milk. The texture should be soft and pliable. Wisdom from the mouth of a farmer ripe in experience :-'' Buy when you want,, and sell when you have anything to sell ; leave specu latioxi in prices to the merchant, he understands it better than you."

A Home-Made Hair Grower THAT DOES MARVELS. -o During the last few years an nouncements have appeared occa sionally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One lady writes that immediately after reading the for mula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as directed, 1 ounce of Lavona de Compossee, 3 dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum. She took this home, and, although her hair had been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and. delighted to. note that the falling out of the hair stopped --immediately, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, she states that it has already grown nearly 8 inches in a little over two months. More over, her hair is now brighter, glossier, and more" luxuriant than ever and is still growing. She rubbed the tonic into-the roots...

Cycling and Motoring Notes E. Hayman, a Melbourne motor cyclist, last Saturday, recorded a fast half mile on the road-from a flying start he negotiated the 880 yards in 26 1-5 secs .(equal to 68.7 miles an hour), which equals the recent record establisned by E. E. Kester in Adelaide. Mayman rode a 3% h p. Dunlop shod Triumph stripped of guards, etc. His ride was officially timed and was accom plished on a straightaway asphalted road across the North Melbourne Swamp, and like the recent Adelaide records was only ridden in one direction. Frank Kramer, the American speed King, and holder of the world's championship, has opened his Parisian season in good style by defeating E. Friol (the champion of France) in a match. Kramer won all three heats, but was dis qualified in the second event owing to cutting in too close on the French crack. Kramer is a marvel Sat keeping his form, and the longer he races, the better he rides. For 13 years he has been right at the top of the tree. Two amate...

INDIGESTION. CAN IT BE BANISHED? [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 26 March 1914
I NDIGESTION. -CAN IfT BE BANISHED ? SNow, canit? Must a woman go on Ssuffering from headaches, biliousness, flatulence, pains after eating, languor, or any of the other distressing symptoms Sthat arise from faulty action of the stom ach or the liver? Must men be made less fit for work, less able to keep pace with their competitors, because indigestion is sapping their energies, and clogging their minds? Have men and women to go on enduring these things without hope of recovery? Assuredly not! Most cases of acute indigestion are the result of neglect and indifference. People get into a foolish habit of thinking that they will be better on the morrow, or in a week or two, and so the complaint gets hold and the sufferer goes from bad to worse. Food ought to give up its life-sustain ing elements for every nerve and muscle in your body; it ought to replenish the rich, red stream of blood flowing through your veins, and help you to think, to act, and to work with the vim of the healthy m...
