She took this home, and although her hair has 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 immediateiy, 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. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier and more luxuriant than ever and is still growing. She rubbed the tonic into the roots twice a day fo...

WRITERS AND WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. RECOLLECTIONS OF LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
W WRITINGS. LITERARY NOTES AND VERSES. RECOLLECTIONS OF LAMB. In 1818 the much-loved Charles Lamb, poet and essayist, thought his literary career over, and col lected his works in two volumes, which he dedicated to Martin Burney (a friend of about his own age) in a sonnet ending with the beautiful lines : In all thy threading of this worldly maze (And I have watehed thee almost from a child), Free from self-seeking, envy, low design, I have not found a whiter soul than thine. This is the letter that accompanied the dedicatory sonnet : Dear Lad,-As I shall always call you, no matter how grey you become or how senile you talk-this is the sonnet which I wish to inscribe on a fly-leaf of my works-woRKs I do you hear ?-so that they may have at any rate one page of which I shall never feel ashamed. For the rest I alternate between misgiving and a feeling that a few things may be neatly said, but whether I would like to burn them or write them all over again I am undecided. Am I clear ? My...

ANNA. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
ANNA. The pale discrowned stacks of maize Like spectres in the sun, Stand shivering nigh Avonaise, Where all is dead and done. The sere leaves make a music vain, With melancholy chords; Like cries from some old battle plain, Like clash of phantom swords. But when the maize was lush and green With musical green waves, She went, its plumed ranks between, Unto the hill of graves. There you may see sweet flowers set O'er damsels and o'er dames Rose, Ellen, Mary, Margaret The sweet old quiet names. The graveo3tones show in long array, Though white, or green with moss, How linked in life and death are they The Shamrock and the Cross. The Grave-stones face the Golden East, And in the morn they take The blessing of the Great High Priest, Before the living wake. Who was she ? Never ask her name; Her beauty and her grace Have passed with her poor little shame, Into the Silent Place. In Avonaise, in Avonaise, Where all is dead and done, The folk who rest there all their days Care not for moon ...
FIRE TRAGEDY. PANIC AMONG ITALIANS. POLICE USE CLUBS. NEW YORK, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
FIRE TRAGEDY, PANIC AMONG ITALIANS. POLICE USE CLUBS. NEW YORK, FR??AY. Remarkable scenes took place early to-day during a fire at an Italian apartment-house in Bridge port, Connecticut. There were 50 lodgers in the house when the fire broke out and the alarm was followed by a bad panic. A number of police dashed into the building and found the inmates fighting fiercely to gain egress from the wrong exits. As the frightened people would not be induced to listen to reason, the policemen used their clubs to drive them out, but even these drastic measures failed to save the lives of three people, who were burned to death. Several others were injured.
AT THE GATES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
AT THE GATES, How long, how long, oh night? The delicate fabric of the stars is frayed Where dawn lets in the light; And, in the scented glade, The thrushes thread day's lattices, and sing The end of your impassioned sorrowing. I see your glittering tears Scattered upon the lawn's awaking green; The bitter knowledge of the bitter yeara Since ever love has been Lies in your deep, kind breast, and with the day You mourn poor human love, that dies away. How long, how long, oh night? Across your hours I have fulfilled the task of my delight, I .have won rapturous lethargy of flowers; But day unfolds, and I shall keep my song How long, oh night, oh, wanton love, how long? -Richard Middleton, in "Poems and Songs."
SUNDOWN AND SUNDAWN. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 16 March 1914
SUNDOWN AND SUNDAWN. I sat at sunset by the sea, And watched the wavelete flecked with gold, Till thoughts came o'er me manifoldi Of present things, and things to be. Within the sun's fierce furnace glow, I saw a craftsman, strong and brave, Strike on that anvil cross the wave, And heard each hammer's measured brow. He forged the gates that seal th west, In faiahing'gem and burnishid gold, Ee closed them slowly, and beholds M?lyworld was dark, and lay at rest. And yet the craftsman labored still, STo forgethe eastern gate so bright. And opening them: the peaceful light, Flooded the distshnt vale and hill. My world was black-all wrappegin night, The watchmen moved with mu[ffd sound, In yonder world new joy was found, In the sweet coming of the light. -Frederick Warner.
