Pramptou, Qainn Street, Namnrkah, says :—"Five years ago I took a course of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills for severe pain3 in my back, and other symptoms of kidney disorder, and I am pleased to say that, they cured me. The most pleasing part oE my cure is that it has proved permanent, for I have been free of kidney complaint ever since.

An Australian Abroad. A belated letter has reaohed as from "An Australinn Coantry Girl" dated August 20 :— The finest meeting I have been to yet on how to help in this war, took place this afternoon at the Trocadero, by invitation from Sir G.

Sir George Reid opened the meeting with a fine ■ speech, "doploring the greatest calam ity that has ever been known to human beings," so he described this awfnl war, and we all feel with him that it is so.

Sir .John Puller was there but did not speak. He was looking well, as also was Sir John Cockbnrn, of...

Big Yields from Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 6 November 1914
Big fields from Lncerne. Mr L. E. Fidgp, of Nanneelln, has just finished the disposal of his first catting for the season of 20 acres of lucerne, which yielded 211* tons of baled hay. About half of this amount was sold some time ago for forward delivery at £5 per ton, and for the balance he received £6 per ton in the stack, which is the equivalent of £6 16s on the railway trucks. The latter price was also realised for about 10 tone of last season's hay remaining on hand. As five mora equally good cut tings ore expected daring the season, it is probable that about £36 per acre will be returned from this k cerne field. In view of snch figures the appreciation of irrigable land may be understood. At a meeting of the Natbalia Irri gation League on Thursday night (Or Bald, President, in the chair) reports were received from the deputation ap pointed to wait on Mr Mead in an endeavor to have the surplus water from the Sh9pparton irrigation area diverted to the creek near Wunghnn.

OBITUARY. It is with great regret that we chronicle the death of Mr Leonard M. Reynoldson, a well-known and highly esteemed resident of the Strathmerton district. The sad event took place on Saturday night last, and was to an extent unexpected, although the de ceased hod not enjoyed good health for some time past. The late Mr Reynolson, although not taking on active part in public affairs, was al ways ready to extend a helping hand where needed, and his uprightness of conduct and manly 'rectitude gained for him a host of friends who sincerely deplore his dem'se. Mr Reynoldson had accumulated considerable property in the district and in New South Wales, and was always vitally inter ested in matters connected with the farming and pastoral industries. To the bereaved widow and family the heart-felt sympathy of a very wide circle of friends has been extended. The funeral took place at the No mnrkah cemetery on Monday after noon. The service ab the grave-side I was read by the Rev. W- T....

EDITOEIAL. It will no doubt be interesting to our readers to know that the following prayers set forth by the Holy Synod were appointed for use in all the churches of the Russian Empire. They are in cluded in a special Litany to be said by the priest and congregation, all kneeling. On Sunday, October 25th, in my sermon on "The Religion of Russia" I drew at tention to them and aseed the congre gation to kneel down and we would mako use of them, which we did. I am sure that all who were present were impressed with their beauty, sympathy and sim plicity. If we compare them with our own wo shall be struck with the resem blance in structure aud in the objects of petitious. It is comforting to know that throughout that great country prayers are continually ascending on behalf of our brave fighters. And they do pray in Russia.
