Cost of War. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 11 September 1914
Cost of War. Some years ago the late August Bebel estimated that any future Franco German war would cost £150,000,000 a month, while if Great Britain, Austria, Italy and Russia joined in, the cost would mount up to £450,000,000, a month. Neither Germany nor France, it is thought in some quarters, could stand the economic strain of such a war for more than three months. Both, how ever, wolud not break down at the same moment, and—so far as cash and credit decide these things—the State which can pay its bills even a month longer than its rival will win. War was not such a costly undertak ing 40 years ago. The Franco-German war, which lasted 190 days, cost Ger many £90,000,000 for an average fight ing force of-1,250,000. The Boer war, in which the British army averaged 200,000, and which lasted 30 months, cost £211,000,000. The war in the Far East cost Japan £130,000,000 and Russia £144,600,000, not counting lost ships,
Serious Chances Are taken in neglecting a simple case of Piles. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 11 September 1914
Serious Chances Are taken in neglecting a simple case of Piles. Any person takes serious chances in neglecting an attack of Piles. This ail ment has a tendency to become chronic, and there is also danger of ulceration and the forming of fistula, both very difficult to cure. Thesafest remedy for any form of piles, whether itchiog or protruding, is Doan's Ointment. It causes no deten tion from daily occupation, and the many cures made by it have made it famous in every ooruer of the world. It enjoys a greater demand, and more enthusiastic popularity than any other Pile remedy ever placed on the market. Mr T. G. Anderson, Blacksmith, High Street, Rushworth, says :—" I have used a good many preparations in my time try ing to cure Itching Piles, an ailment that has given me a great deal of trouble, but the very best remedy of all I ever came across was Doan's Ointment.

WHERE THE EYE IS DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
WHERE TtiE EYE IS DECEIVED. A curious optical illusion is some times seen as a motor-car pas'ses, the wheels of the moving vehicle appear ing for an instant to stop or even.-turn backward. In an investigation re ported to the Royal Society, Professor A. Mallock mounted a cardboard disc with spokes on a flywheel, and when this was revolved so rapidly that the spokes could not be seen or easily followed by the eye, and a slight me chanical shock of almost any kind was given the observer, the spokes appeared almost stationary for a frac tion of a second. Shocks having this effect were given in many ways, such as in the contact of the feet with the ground as in walking, by tapping the head or body, or even by rapidly blinking the eyes. It was proved that the appearances depend on the speed of rotation, the brightness of illumin ation, and to some degree on the na ture of the shock. The explanation was offered that the shock produces a momentary loss or variation of sen sation. This vari...

Besides these, there is a double-seat...
Not a Tiring Method. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
Not a Tiring Method. He tapped on the back door of a suburban home and asked for some thing to eat. The good housewife re sponded that she would feed him pro vided he was willing to earn the meal by clearing out the gutter. The tramp agreed, and when he had eaten his way through several sand wiches to a feeling of happiness, the housewife came out with a reliable looking hoe. "You needn't have gone to that trouble, madam," said the weary one, sizing up the farm implement; "I never use a hoe in cleaning out a gut ter." "Never use a hoe!" said the wo man, with a wondering expression. "What do you use, then—a shovel?" "No, madam," replied the tramp, starting for the hack gate, "my me thod is to pray for rain."

THE FINAL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
THE FINAL MATCH. Under ordinary circumstances the heal match between Murchison (minor pre miers) and Euroa would have been played at Seymour to-morrow ^Saturday), but owing to the fact that Nagambie has lodged a protest against Euroa for play ing, so it is alleged, an unregistered player in last Saturday's match, the match cannot now be played on that date. A special meeting of the associa tion has been convened for Monday evening next, when the matter will bo thrashed out by delegates. • Should the protest be dismissed it is probable that the match will be played .ou Saturday, "6th insb., but should it be upheld it is hard to say wheu Quality will be reached. ' Mr P. J. O'Connor, captain of the Euros club, has charged J. Dibbin (a Nagambie player) with using bad langu age toward him during the progress of 'sst Saturday's match. This matter will also be ventilated at Monday evening's meeting of the association. Anniversary service in connection with the Goulburn Weir Presbyterian ch...

FOOTBALL NOT'ES. - WA LIANG A - NORTH - EASTERN ASSOCIATION. PRELIMINARY FINAL. Football under the above association was advanced to the last stage but one for the prosent season on Saturday after noon last, when'teams representing Na gambie and Euroa (each of whom had won their semi-final games) met in the preliminary final at Seymour. Special trains were run from Murchison East and Euroa to Seymour for the match, and as these were well patronised by excursion ists a large crowd was in attendance to witness the match. The gate takings amounted to £28 3s. Neither side was represented by its full strenth, neverthe less the combinations were strong ones and it was predicted that a well-contested match would result. During the first term Nagambie had much the best of the play and nt the first change of ends had a lead of 8 points. However, from this period on to the finish the game was simply a procession—Euroa leading and Kagambie following, and the further they went the further Nagam...
"BUSHED." [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
7" BUSHED.' (i'eize Essay, . -without >keparation, j!y -a. rushworth Girl ) "Bushed?", What depths of misery aud despair are concentrated in that single word. The traveller leaves his home to penetrate into the bush, and for a few days all goes well. Then, when he does not reach his destination or seem to be even approaching it within a certain time, the truth dawns on him that he is " bushed." At first he can do nothing but sink to the ground in his utter help lessness and pray ba his Creator for his deliverance, and,-thus fortified, he staggers to his feet once again and tries to find some way out of his difficulty. Pre sently he finds what he thinks is a path, and follows it for some distance amid the great gaunt gums on the branches of which 2)erch the jackasses, whose insane laughter echoes through the forest, while now and then a brilliantly-colored parrot darts through the air, or a. frightened rabbit scurries awayinto the undergrowth. The supposed path soon proves to be a...

Our State Savings Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 18 September 1914
Our State Savings Bank, There is no need for the people of Vic* toria to have the least uneasiness regarding the financial situation while the monetary system is buttressed by an ins'itution like our State Savings Bank. It has the entire resources of the Government behind it, and can only fail when the nation fails. The private banks are also in a very strong position, and, fortunately for the people, our paper money is small in amount and well under control. We hope the Federal Government will see that the war scare will not cloud the prudence of the next Com monwealth Parliament on the question. The note issue is now safeguarded; but these safeguards could easily be removed by members anxious to flood the nation with paper money. That is the danger which attaches to such issues. In times of panic it is easy to set the printing press to work turning out promissory notes, and the risk of over issue is great. Our State Savings Bank is conducted on the very soundest lines, and it does...
