Had Diarrhoea when Teething.— " When teething my little girl suffered greatly from Diarrhoea," says Mrs Alice A. Powell, Cressy, Ta.=. " When first attacked, I took her to the doctor, but his treatment did her no good whatever. As sixteen children had died of diarrhoea in the previous two weeks, I was greatly alarmed. I gave her a few doses of Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy, aud the result was simply mar vellous. In a few hours I noticed a decided improvement, and the child was quickly well again."

AMBASSADOR AS SPY. HOW THE KAISER WAS MISLED. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
AMBASSADOR AS SPY. HOW THE KAISER WAS MISLED. Prince Lichnowsky leaving London looked very forlorn and dejected, writes the special representative of the Sydney "Sun." He confided to a .; friend that he was returning to Ber lin to be disgraced. He had told the Kaiser that England was rent beyond redemption by the Home Rule strug gle, and that she was powerless to ... interfere in Foreign Affairs. , Rub an ambassador and you find a spy. Prince Lichnowsky : was in London ,to keejp his Emperor fully posted upon the do mestic and. political life of the United . : Kingdom. From a case which was tried we also know that his office acted as the go-between for traitor ous Englishmen and the espionage de- - partment in Berlin. It would appear 'that the German Ambassadors in . France and St. Petersburg were equal ly astray in their advice to the Kai ser. France was depicted as a once r : r, great nation split up into little sec- : tions by party faction. As a fact,' for the first time in her h...
GERMANS IN LONDON. By "One Wanderer Returned." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
GERMANS IN LONDON. ^ By "One Wanderer Returned." The lot of the Germans in London is not just now particularly enviable. Londoners do not ill-treat them, but they more or less ignore them. Here and there Ave have had cases of hooligans making disturbances in front of German shops, but the magis trates have put this down rigorously. The Germans have been obliged to report themselves, and those who could not give a satisfactory explana tion of their doings have been placed under arrest. But the ordinary, peaceful German is allowed to go on here in his usual way, save that he must show himself to the police once in three days. There has been nothing in England of the horrible rioting and ill-treatment which the English folk received in Germany at the outbreak of the war. But still the lot of the. German here is.not com fortable. If he is a shopkeeper peo [ pie prefer, as a rule, to go to another j shop. Some of the German restaur ants in London are deserted. There is one very line set ...

GENIUS AND HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
GENIUS AND HARD WORK. Some young men, who think them lelves gifted with genius, are inclined to the kangaroo style of progressing They flatter themselves that they *t least, may attain to the heights o! fame by, > series of leaps, and that too, without training or hard work. : Before they begin their leopings such fanciful young pcssons shoulc ponder the words of Salvb.ai, the grea' Italian actor, to the pupils of his art 'Above • .all, study—study — study/ says this., chieftain in a professioi whiGh is supposed to reserve its prizei for genius. "All the genius m th&lt; world," he adds, "will not help yoi .along with any act unless you bacomt a hard student. It has taken me yeari to master a single part."

THE MOTHERS AND THEIR SONS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
THE MOTHERS AND THEIR SONS. And while the sons go trooping forth, To find, to take, to share The White Man's burden that we know, Have they no load to bear Who choke their -sobs and hide at home And wait and yearn and long, Who bore the-sons of England— The mothers of the strong? It must not be supposed that be cause the Kaiser quoted Shakespeare ("To be or not to be") in his windy manifesto his Majesty is a good Shakespearean. The contrary maybe surmised from an incident which oc curred at a lunch at one of the Ber lin Embassies. An English diplomat was discussing some big affair of the moment with a lady. "As our immor tal William has observed," the diplo mat remarked, " 'There is a tide in the affairs of men that, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.'" The Kai ser looked puzzled. "That is quite true," he is eaid to have remarked, "but I don't remember saying it." i For ten long .but blissful years they had walked along the path of love that leads through the trees, but as yet...
HOW PIGS BECOME PORK IN CHICAGO. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
HOW PIGS BECOME PORK IN CHICAGO. Mr. 5VI Robinson gives the folio w .ng graphic description of how a pig suddenly became pork at a pig-LJlling jstablishment in Chicago: — A lively piebald porker was one of i number grunting and quarrelling in i pen, and I was asked to keep my •ye on him. What happened to that oorker was this. He was suddenly leized by a hind log and jerked up to a. small crane. This swung him safe ly to the fatal door through which nc pig ever returns. On the other side itands a man. The two-handed engine it the door stands ready to smite once ind smite no more, and the dead pig Is shot across a trough and through mother doorway, and then there was. v splash. He had fallen head-first in to a vat of boiling water. Some un ?een... machine passed him along iwiftiy to the other end of the terrific bath, and there a water-wheel picked him up and flung him on to a sloping 1 counter. Here another machine seized aim, and with one revolution scraped ilm as. bald as a nut. An...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES Prince Bismarck, the man who made Germany, died an unhappy and dis appointed- man. - He complained that nobody liked him for what he had accomplished,...and that he had not achieved tttfc happiness of anyone, in cluding himself. When he was com plimented upon having made a great nation he replied, "Yes, but the mis fortune of how many? But for me thr«e great wars would not have' tak en place; 80,000 men would not have perished; fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, widows would not have been plunged into mourning. I have set tled all that with my Creator, but I have gained little or no Joy from all my work." Devilish work it has proved to be. Woman is certainly coming into her own. Even in tender romance she is exerting an influence. The young man with the love for racehorses, the theatre and what not had just been accepted. In his rapture, he exclaim ed, "But do you think, my Jove, I am good enough for you?" His girl look ed at: him for a moment. "Good enough fo...
GET A REST OCCASIONALLY. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
GET A REST OCCASIONALLY. One woman said of another recent ly: "She boasts that she is never Idle, .hat every mcrnent not spent in sleep s a busy one. When she does sit lown for a s'aort time she always has !ome fancy work ready and picks it ip. She declares that she can rest ts well if hsr hands are occupied as f they lie quiet in her lap. In fact, ihe says that she rests better for the .rifling work, and I imagine that she loes, but it is because she is too over wrought and too nervous to sit per 'eclly still. I shall be much surprised f, some day, there is not a total col apse there." If Nature has, as Is alleged, a long nemory, and never forgets an injury, t does seem probable that this wo nan, who, like her prototype in Mother ioose, "nevo? is quiet," will some day liscover that the few moments" of •efreshment and of rest that she would lot seize, as she went on with her jaily work, have been forced upon her n the accumulation of their long ar ears. The censure of our enemies is...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Mr W. A. Lacey, a buyer for the Gippsland Co-operative Bacon Curing Company, will forward a truck of pigs to Dandenongon Friday, November 6. The appeal recently-*"made to the women of the Presbyterian Church for socks for the troops has resulted in 3000 pairs being made throughout the State of Victoria. "The Presbyterian ladies at Traralgon gained the distinction of being placed, third on the list with 104 pairs. We congratulate the ladies on the fine spirit of patriotism shown. —" Record." In. the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, 29th ult., further con sideration was given in committee to the Local Government Bill. Mr Cotter moved an amendment to section 52 of the principal act, in order to permit of women becoming members of muni cipal councils. Among those not eligible for municipal office, he said, were in solvents and persons of unsound mind, and he did not see why women should be in that category. He took the view that the inclusion of women among thes...
LADIES' LETTER. From Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 4 November 1914
LADIES' LETTER. From Melbourne., Can you. realise that we are in the thick of it with the Gaulfield Cup? Yet there has scarcely been . any private hospitality, and absolutely no big functions. Of course; there can not be any Derby Eve naval and military ball—that is understood, but what about other functions? It is extraordinary, but also there is no great talk of new clothe^, for the fes tivities, and altogether'"'the usual spring spirit seems missing. In Sydney it was declared ' that there were as many renovations and made over toilettes for the A.J.C. meeting as new ones. I expect this is an ex aggeration, but there is no doubt that many women this , year are managing and contriving to- do without expen sive new frocks. Many are making them themselves instead of . employ ing dressmakers. All very well, but meantime, what are the dressmakers and the workers to do if we all eco nomise? How are they to live? We are still ) working steadily at things for our .troops, even though some...
