No Johnny In It. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
We Johnny In It. Mrs. C. was visiting a neighbor, who had a bright boy of 4 years. When she was ready to go home, she asked the little fellow to accompany her and stay to tea. "And we will have Johnny cake," add ed Mrs. C. to clinch the argument. The child had never heard corn cake called by this name, and he expected some thing very fine, but was disappointed as he watched her make it just as his moth er made corn cake. When it was ready to go in thu oven, Mrs. C. said: "Artie, as soon as it bakes we will have our tea." But the little fellow thought there must be a great mistake, and he caught hold of Mrs. C.'s dress and with eyes and mouth opened wide gasped out: "Oh, Mrs. C., you've forgot to put the Johnny in!"-De-roit Free Press.

SUICIDE. SOME PECULIAR METHODS OF COMMITTING IT. CAUSES THAT LEAD TO IT. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 18 October 1898
SUICIDE. SOME PECULIAR .METHODS OF COMMITTING IT. CAUSES THAT LEAD TO IT. Some cases of suicide are brutal and disgusting. Their details fill us with horror. Others appeal to our pity and sympathy. Both for their reason and result. There is suicide by knife, by pistol, by hanging, by drowning, by jumping, by escaping gas, by burning charcoal, and by the various poisons, as mor phine, strychnine,arsenic, prussic acid, and various other drugs. But there is a still more common and much more important form of suicide. It i. suicidei bsI ivlnoran,ce or i'yllctt A man or woman can as easily and as certainly commit suicide by failing to filter out of the body the poisons and impurities that collect in it. They are forming every minute and every second of your life-by day and by night. Every time your brain thinks, your hand moves, your heart beats, your lungs inhale, some of their substance breaks down into waste material. "This waste material is poisonous, and nature intends its removal a...

FOLKS WITH PAINS. HOW TO GET RID OF THE PAIN. PAINS IN THE BACK, PAINS IN THE MUSCLES, PAINS IN THE JOINTS, PAINS IN THE HEAD. WHAT CAUSES THEM AND WHAT CURES THEM. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
FOLKS WITH PAINS. HOW TO GET RID OF THE PAIN. PAINS IN THE BACK, PAINS IN THE MUSCLES, PAINS IN THE JOINTS, PAINS IN THE HEAD. WHVAT CAUSES THEM AND WHAT CURES THEM. Pain is a sign of disease. You want to get rid of it. There are two ways. Either to cure the disease or relieve -the pain. The first is the better. The curing settles the disease and the pain. The relieving only helps the pain. It will come back again. The disease stays right where it is, and eats away your health. You may not feel it while the pain is gone, but it is there just the same. Pain in the back'is kidney trouble. It can be cured with Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills. It can be cured to stay away, and with proper care never to come back. Kidney trouble gives a great deal of trouble to doctors. It is hard to cure. There are so many complications. They are gen erally dangerous. Only Doan's Backache Kidney Pills :make such a large percentage of cures. The roots from which they are made have such a healing, soothing,...

THE DESCENT OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE DESCENT OF MAN..JW The chief feature at the recent Con gress of Zoology at Cambridge was Pro fessor Haeckel's paper on our present knowledge of the descent of man. He said that It was a fixed fact that man is a member of the primate order, and that all primates-that is. all lemurs, all monkeys, and all men-descend from one common stem, and zoology might be proud to have proved this fact, based on the theories of Lamarck (1809) and of Darwin (1859). The immense pro gress of human science effected by this knowledge would be one of the greatest conquests of our nineteenth century. The Rev. T. R. Stebbing (Tunbridge Wells) said that Professor Haeckel had spoken of a thousand millions of years as necessary for his evolution tree, while Lord Kelvin supposed himself to have proved that this world of ours, as a scene of life could not be more than twenty,-five millions of years old. In the course of that time he (Mr Stebbing) could conceive that a great many things had happened. (Laught...

IN THE EARLY DAYS. DY "AN OLD SHELLBACgI." Towards the end of the year 1S5 a Government emigrant ship left the 13W kenhead docks. called The Chance, 1400 tons, Captain Hayes master.

OUTRAGES ON JUDGES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
OUTRAGES ON JUDGES. The "Law Journal" says that happily we have had comparatively few out rages on judges in recent years. But there have been a few exc-ptions to this statement. It is, perhaps, scarcely neceseary to note in passing Dodwell's abortive attempt to shoot Sir George Jes-sel from the entrance to the Rolls Court. in 1878. as it was clearly a pro-' duct of insanity. But everyone remem bers the case of the late Judge Bristowe, who was shot at Nhottingham Railway Station by a disappointed litigant, in 1889. and who never entirely recovered from the injury which he received, al though he did excellent duty as a County Court judge in another district till the time of his death. The only other instance of this species of offence which occurs to us is that in connection with Vice-Chancellor Malins. at v:hose head an egg was thrown as he was leaving the bench by an American named Cos-grave, who was at once sent to prison for contempt of Court. Cose grave was afterwards discharged...
THE CZAR'S DISARMAMENT PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THE CZAR'S DISDARiMAiV?NT P.iOPOSALS. Tihe o!(1 country paper:y which reae-h ed us this week are full of the Czar's disarmament proposals. They give their own views with eha:racteristic British freedlom and variety. Some of them, too. have been particularly indus trious in collecting the opinions of emi neut men in the political, social, and re ligious life of our Empire. Sir John Lubbock puts in a few trenchant words the economic view: I have read the Czar's wise andr statesmanlike proposal with intense satisfaction. Unless the present expen diture on armies and navies is reduced, the nations of Europe have nothing but revolution and bankruptcy before them. The debt of France, for instance, has risen in twenty-five years of so-called peace by over six hundred millions ster-I ling. Such a course can only end in ru!n. In Germany and Italy also the taxation is very heavy, and Socialism increasing. The present immense armies must eventually lead to a terrific war, but in the Emperor's ...
RELIGION ON THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
RELIGION ON THE STAGE. Mr Wilson Barrett, who has just con cluded a short season in Edinburgh. dur ing which The Sign of the Cross was played, has been again defending the re ligious play:-"-It has been said that re ligion has no place on the stage. This to me seems absurd. RIeligio n is sure ly the highee-t form of morality, and to say that the highest form of morality has no place on the stage is to condemn the stage to all that is low and degrad ing. I quite agree with those who as rert that, treated with irreverence, a re ligious subject would be a dangerous one. But you, ladies and gentlemen, would never have crowded this theatre as you have d8-..e had there been even a suspicion of irreverence in the treat ment or performance of The Sign of the Crosa. I have had to fight rather a hard battle, and I have had to fight it pretty well alone, but I have succeeded." Those who might have been expected to be the firat to help him were in many ins?.nces the first to condemn him. They d...

THINGS WE NOW KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 25 October 1898
THINGS WE NOW KNOW. The United States "Army and Navy Journal" gives the following under the heading of "Things We Now Knowr: That George Washington's head was It~-el when he said : "In peace prep?ae for war." That talking peace and refusing to pre pare 1or war is not the best way to avoid war. That the size of a country's population or the extent or- its wealth is not the measure of its strength: but its capacity for prompt action in war. That the combination of a gun, a man, and a uniform does not necessarily make a soldier. That no cotmtry has better raw ma terial for soldi-rs, or more of it. but that time spent for training and dlscipline is an essential factor In the formation of an army. That man for man. he American is not out-classed as a fighter by any foreigner. That pluck and energy and a cool, cal curating disregard- of danger is not merely an individual but a national char acteristic. That, judged by their product, our national educational establishments for the navy and...
