CURE FOR SICK HEADACHE. Take alcohol extract of nux vomica, using at the commencement pills containing 1-12 of a grain, and gradually increased to 1-4 of a grain.

The Moving Picture Show. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915
The Moving Picture Show. Under the above caption the Sydney 'Sun' thus speaKs of the Rev. John Bowrau: — 'If it is not quite irreverent to quote Scrip- ' ture, this scribe would like to say to 'The Rev. John Bowran, Methodist clergyman at Lithgow, 'It thy right hand offend thee, cut It off, and cast it from thee.' No doubt the Divine Preacher meant this saying to apply to the sacrifices which must often be made' in saying good-bye to a pet temptation; but it may be quite piously applied to Mr. Bow ran's too- 'as well. He is indeed one of the fighting parsons. He had one of those de fective toes which the medical officers' con demn, and so keep the volunteer at home. A Methodist clergyman with a hammer toe may do a lot of walking while be pays his par'sh visits, and not mind limping when the toe hurts; but they won't admit a limp ing hero to the firing line. Therefore, Mr. Bowran joined the select group who went to the surgeon for an amputation first, and to the barracks to take the ...

TO PRESERVE LINOLEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

WHAT A WOMAN DID LAST WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915
WHAT A WOMAN DID LAST WEEK. 'It should be interesting to your read ers to learn of a rather tactful part played by a woman last week. The story in brief is, 'that a bottle of Pirkine up Sauce was put into a cruet bottle, and those using it remarked that thore was something nice about the sauce to day.' Our reason for inserting this in your paper is, that your readers may get to know that once Pick-me-up Sauce is tried, ita quality ensures its continual , UBC — not because it is cheaper. Thous ands more are using it Binco the Picknu up appeal.

HOPES THAT DELUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915
HOPES THAT DELUDE. There is nothing in the world so fair as a young girl's hopes and dreams. We feel that no blame is too severe for those who cruelly destroy them without cause, and we are right to be angry. Therefore, it is pathetic and deplorable to see a girl building up vain hopes that can never be realised. Even hope must rest upon a foundation of . -ot, or its airy palace will crush to ruin at. the first breath of the cold blast of reality. And the downfall of hope spells dire misery to the sensative nature that cherished it. Far bet ter would it have been not to have lived in a dream of impossible expectation; better far to have confined one's vision to what will not deceive or disappoint, even though it may not be quite so romantically fair. False hopes have wrecked many a girliBh life; let them not make havoc of our own!

Perch In Middle River. The assistant secretary of the Progress Association has received the following let ter from the Fisheries Department: — girr_W'th reference to your communica tion of the 17th instant, relative tc a supply ? of Australian Bass for the purpose of libera tion in local waters, I have to state that the waters of the Lithgow water supply dam -?and the Clarence railway nam are buiuiu»« . for the introduction of Australian bass, and 'while the trout would devour a certain num ber of young bass and vice versa, these species thrive together in wat rs that are suitable for both kinds. As regards the River, I have to Intimate that the Maranga roo Creek and the Lett River flow into the ?Cox River, and the Cox River into the War ragamba River, whose waters teem with Australian bass, and if these streams do not .-Already contain bass it is because their waters are unsuitable. In the circumstances it is not considered advisable to attempt stocking them with this species. Have...

Craven, 'L' Coy., Royal En gineers, with the British Expeditionary v Force in» France, has written to Mr. Padley . .as follows: — 'Thanks for the papers you have for warded to me. There is always a spice about Australian journalism, which makes it very welcome. Am keeping in the ,beBt of health, ?.??although after over 12 months of it, am be coming somewhat 'fed-up.' The war in France is no longer the precarious expedi tion it waa at first, but has become an elab orate routine, everything highly organised :.and worked out to a decimal place. Hence the loss of glamour and the fact that the chief thing we suffer from at present is 'boredom.' Since writing this no doubt Mr. Craven'e boredom will have b.een changed, Binoe the British recent attack' at Hooge. Mr. Craven is a brilliant young descriptive writer, and when in camp prior to his despatch to France, wrote several veicy interesting ac counts of camp life in England, but io now ? debarred fro...

CYCLING. SYDNEY EIGHT HOUR MEETING. LEN. ORCHARD'S BRILLIANT RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915
CYCLING. SYDNEY EIGHT HOUR MEETING. LEN. ORCHARD'S BRILLIANT- RIDE. The success of country riders was the out standing feaure of the cycling at the Sydney Eight Hour Demonstration on Monday last. They won every race, and took over £60 out of the £110 prize mxxney. And one of them did what has seldom been seen on any metropolitan track in Australia, taking every pacing prize and first place in a five-miles scratch race. The hero of this episode was Leonard Orchard, the Lithgow crack, who dashed away at the start and was never headed, winning by nearly 100 yards in very good time. It was a hard day for riding, for a very strong wind was blowing, while the riders are unanimous in condemning the track as bad. This could point to a number of spills and lyre troubles. Among those who fell were A. J. Davies, Les. Hammond, ,E. L._. Bestel, who sustained a fractured nose, A~ C. Walcott, and G. Harrison. Alick McBeath, of Cessnock, was in fine form, but failed to land a first prize. He brilli...
