EXERCISE AND HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 3 September 1915

EXERCISE AND HEALTH. There is no question as to the advan tage of exercise, but there aro thou sands of people who Bhorten their lives, while at tho same time other thousands lengthen their lives by the same method-exercise. As a matter of fact, athletes, are notorious for their short lives. The reason is because they ne glect the only all-inclusive rule about exercise. The rule is-do not strain your muscles. In other words, (lon't overdo. N# person but yourself can tell how much your muscles can stand. What would strain you might be per fectly easy for somebody else. Muscles aro wonderful things, and can bo de veloped to an almost inerediblo strength. A strong man weighing two hundred pounds can support his weight with the muscles of his little linger alone, but lot an untrainod man attempt, this feat and ho will, if ho hangs on hard enough, dislocate tho joints and strain every musolo in the finger. Your muscles will accomplish almost anything for you, but thoy cannot do it all ti...

GERMAN PREPARATIONS. EVERY YARD UNDER CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 3 September 1915

GERMAN PREPARATIONS. EVKRY YARD UNDER CULTIVA TION. Berlin despatches to American papers report that German is "oao immense 'truck' (vegetable) garden and farm this spring.". An Associated Press correspondent, ytIao travelled across the country, says: 1 u unprecedented numbers Germans have turned out, in the cities as well as the countries, and liavo ploughed and planted every available acre, almost every square yard, of land, in anticipa tion of a crop that shall put an end to the rumours that the country can be starved out. The casual visitor to Germany leaves invariably with the impressiojn that there are unusual numbers of young men still in civil life who have not been called to the colours. This impression fades once one gets into the country, however, and it is the exception to see men of military age working in the fields. In their places are large numbers of women, boys ranging from six to six teen, and old men, all industriously ploughing, planting, or sowing. In place of ...

SIX MONTHS OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 3 September 1915

SIX MONTHS OF WAR. The French account of the first six I months of the war is quite the frank est of all the official narratives .that have yet appeared. At the beginning of the war the French censorship of war news was more stringent than in any other country engaged, with the doubtful exception of Austria; but the narrative now published makes ample amends for the early concealment of the truth, and'in doing so gives solid ground for confidence in the future (wrote "A Student of the War") in the "Manchester Guardian"). It is im possible to read the narrative without recognising that the French Governl ment did not tell the whole truth at the beginning of the war for any other reason than that they did not dare. Now they dare, which means that they feel now that the danger is past and that France is on the high road to vic tory. - France began the war about as badly as it was possible to do. Her first cam paign in Alsace was so badly managed that the commander was promptly re lieve...

It is 011c thing, of course, to collect ail array of visitors in a country house, and another thing to he successful in pleasing and amusing them, so as to keep the whole cageful of birds, so to speak, in song and feather. Young men, in especial, arc difficult to content, and have an awkward knock, of being called away 0:1 urgent private affairs, if al lowed to mope through the dullness of ail unoccupied day. And without young men there can be 110 liveliness, no flir tation, 110 by-play of match-making nothing to lend interest to the country life. Lady Thorsdale had an addition al difficulty to contend with in the fact that the real object of her undertaking .was to divert her exacting lord froih over-much brooding over his own health and the best method of restoring it.

BIG GUNS AND BUTTERFLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 3 September 1915

BIG GUNS AND BUTTERFLIES. Lecturing recently on ".Modern Ar tillery," Lieutenant Hadcock said that the butterfly is born, lives its full length of >lil:c, and dies of old age, all within the space of 2-i hours. Now, the big gun of say, the 13.5 type, is of sueh magnitude that it takes 10 or 12 months to manufacture it. How does its "life" comparo with that of the but terfly. The gun "lives," of course, only when it is in use; -at aU other times it is merely a "dead" mass of metal. But supposing it to be possible to make it "live" all the time by sending through it an incessant stream of projectiles, it will die of extueme old age in 12s.

In order that sufferers from indigestion may learn how to obtain relief, we pub lish the following letters : From Miss Mary Anne Newman, New ton Street, Railway Town, Broken Hill, N.S.W. "For many years I was a. martyr to periodical attacks of indigestion, and had to be very careful in my choice of food. Eating became almost a nightmare to me, I knowing what the after-effect would be. As time went on the attacks became more frequent, and were accompanied by con stipation and pains between my shoulder blades, as well as in my chest. I was unable to get any proper sleep at night, and would rise in the morning feeling quite miserable and worn out for the want of sleep. I tried various remedies, but derived very little benefit from any of them. Having heard a good deal about the cures effected by Warner's Safe Cure, I decided to try it and see if it would benefit me. I was not long left in doubt as to the value of the medicine, for I derived great benefit from the...
