Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
FOR THE LIVER. People who suffer from liver dis orders will find the following letters very interesting : From Mrs. Ellen Waters, Forest Ilange, South Australia. "Twenty years ago I was very ill. I could not keep my food down, not even a drink of water. I was bad like this for nearly three months. The doctor made me wean my child, as he said that I had abscesses on my liver and that I would have to have them cut out. I was in the hospital at the time. The doctor told me to take my baby home and como back again. I had about 18 miles to travel by coach, and somo kind woman in the coach told hie of Warner's Safe Cure. She asked mp to try it before I went back to the hospital. X did so. I took three bottles, and, thank God, I never had to bo cut about by any doctor, and have never suffered in the same way since." From Mr. J. Maddern, 57 Osborne street, Williamstown, Victoria. "Some time ago I was attacked with a pain under my shoulder blades, extending thence to the back of my neck and ...
LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. "Carry your own lifeboat" is the motto of an Italian inventor, Mr. G. Piperno, who has what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a man's suit-case, measuring 24in. by 16in. by 8in., and weighing 201b. Who disas ter is imminent, the passenger bungs the suit-case on deck, breaks the Real, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a small boat. If it is necessary to abanJon the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate boat, closes the outer cover, and launches his craft by hurling himself overboard. Then, according: to Mr. Piperno, the apparatus rights itself in the water, the top cover i'l thrown open, and the occupant finds himself sitting in an absolutely unsinkahle ship.
COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
j COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. "An Experienced Horseman" in the "Kentucky Live Stock Record," re [ minds those who have the handling j of horses of the cruelty of which they j may be carelessly guilty: - ! "Let anyone who has the care of ; a horse these cold, frosty mornings, j deliberately grasp in his hand a piece of iron; indeed, let him touch it to the tip of his tongue, and then let him thrust the bit into the mouth of the horse if he has the heart to do it. The horse is an animal of nervous organ isation. His mouth is formed of deli cate glands and tissues. The temper ature of the blood is the same as in the human being, and, as in man, the mouth Is the warmest part of the body. Imagine, we repeat, the irri tation that would be to the human, and, if not the same degree, still the suffering to the animal is very great. And it is not a momentary pain. Food is eaten with difficulty, and the irri tation repeated day oy day, causes loss of appetite and strength. Many a horse has beco...
Mary's Belief. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
Mary's Belief. They were speaking of the beauti ful sex and their kindly conversation in discussing each other a few even ings ago, when this little incident was recalled. One ..afternoon two young women were talking liats, servants, picture shows, and things like that, when one of thein casually referred to a certain j Mrs. Smith. "Poor Mary!" siglifully commented the other. "She is a perfect dear, of course, hut she suffers much for her belief." , "Her belief?" responded the first, questioningly. "And what, pray, may that belief be?" "She believes," was the soft, sooing rejoinder of the second, "that she can wear a number three shoe on a num ber six foot."
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL Miss Kathryn Harris, a music-liall J artiste, lias just had a stroke of luck. She says that eighteen years ago, when she was "working in drama" in the raining districts "out West" in the States, she waB a great favorite with the miners in those rough set tlements. They gave her many presents, such as shares in their mines, which, of course, were usually hardly worth the paper upon which they were written. However, Miss Harris, instead of plastering the walls with them, kept them in an old tin trunk, and a few weeks ago, while in Paris, she heard from some gentlemen, who were in terested in mining matters, that the exact value of her old shares was £10,000. The lawyers are now buBily engaged in establishing her ownership, and shortly she expects a nice fat sum for the shares.
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
THE POOR RICH HOR8E AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. The poor rich horse, driven by a tall coachman with high hat and white gloves, looked very gay as ho pranc ed from the door o£ an elegant establishment- on the avenue. The breast of the noble creature was covered with foam, and he tossed his head up and down, and buck and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So high were his eyes-almoBt look ing toward the sky-that he scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding him with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him as belonging to anothor "set" than his entirely. Tho old horse did not suppose It would be any good to pass the time 01 day with his neigh bor, as the rich horse undoubtedly re garded himself as far too grand to communicate with such a humble per sonage; so he changed the bit around in his mouth, and was just about to drop into a gentle doze, when a sound of distress from the rich horse caused his plain neighbor to open his eyes wide and ...
V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. Midwinter to many country resi dents Is an even more enjoyable time than spring, since though the . [nlr scene, When birds sang out their mellow lay, And winds were soft and woods were gray," has disappeared in favor of sterner, wilder weather; yet In numberless cases there is a slight cessation of work just about that time. As a consequence, the great steeplechase meeting, which specially appeals to country racegoers, affords a splendid opportunity for a visit to Melbourne, when pastoralists, farmers and their wives can put in a pleasant and pro fltable fortnight in the great metro polis, at the same time taking in the three splendid days'., racing provided by the V.K.C. at Flemington. There the club has been busy since the au tumn in rounding off die extensive im provements which have, been made during the last year or two, and visi tors during the first week In July will be surprised and pleased at the fair picture presented to them. More than ever ca...

Where She Beat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
Where She Beat Them. The superintendent of :i charitable institution for the aged poor in a ; certain district says that there is no j topic more pleasing to some poor old | women than the discussion of their j "better days," when they were the; fortunate possessors of "everything! heart could wish for," as tliey are apt I to express it. j One old lady in the institution is i never tired of describing the finery! she had when she was a bride; an other boasted of having once owned a "gold-band chiny tea-set" and six solid silver teaspoons; while a third dwelt at length on the elegance of a flowered silk gown and satin parasol with fringe fifteen inches long. One poor old lady stood this sort of talk as long as she could. Then she calmly interrupted with "Well, I never had no chiny tea things, nor no silk gowns, nor em broidered petticoats, not openwork stockings, nor gold ear-rings, nor no thin' of that sort; but I have had four husbands, an' I'd like to know whether any of you can b...
A BEAUTY SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
A BEAUTY SECRET. The beauty of freshness, though not of foature, may be secured by any health woman; and it Is certain ly worth striving for. To secure a nice, clear complexion, bathe night and morning, using warm water and a good soap, which must be thoroughly rinsed off before drying. Eat in moderation, avoiding all indi gestible foods, strong tea, coffee and alcohol. Keep as cheery and amiable as possible, for nothing causes uglier lines in' the face than depression and ill-temper. When washing the hands, rub them over with a bit of lemon, for the juice has a cleansing and softening effect on the skin. Lemon-juice, diluted with an equal quantity of water, is some times used to remove freckles, but for many people this remedy would be to drastic.
IT MEANS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
IT MEANS WEALTH. Raising live stock always produces more wealth in the country. It means greater investment, which, in turn, brings in greater revenue. When crops are grown and the products sold soil is impoverished and little revenue is received, whereas when these crops are food to good animals they bring in a great deal more revenue and the soil is improved.
THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
THE DIFFERENCE. The farm hand sometimes thinks that he has a hard time, but, after all, he is a lucky fellow. All he has to do is what he is told. He doesn't have to worry about running a farm and paying wages, or ponder over crop ro tation and other things. When the hired man Bhuts the stable door after supper he forgets about his work, whereas his employer goes to sleep pondering over keeping down expen ses.
PROFIT POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
. PROFIT POINTS. Give more attention to the orchard, the garden, the poultry and the farm animals, and it will not be necessary to worry all the time over the general crops. With fruits, vegetables, poul try, eggs, milk, butter, pork, and oth er articles of food raised on the farm for the family table it will not require very large crops to make you inde pendent.
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 26 June 1914
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During moments of rest and re pose, do not think of doing things, but think of enjoying things. The man who is always thinking of do ing things may produce the quantity for a time, but the time will be short, and the quality will 'be absent entire ly. The best results are always se cured when thoughts of doing things are frequently alternated with thoughts of enjoying things. The simplest, the easiest, and the quickest way to recuperate tile mind is to think of enjoying things. A few moments of such thoughts are usu ally sufficient to restore full mental vigor; but those moments must be given' over completely to thoughts of enjoyment. The doing of things must be wholly forgotten for the time being, and the mind must give its all to the pleasing picture that it has chosen to entertain.
