A FRIEND ADVISED HER. The following letter from Mrs. Thomas Brown, of Ilealesville, Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation with terrible ' pain all over my body, especially across my back. My whole body was racked with pain, and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared very little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope when a friend advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it, and derived great 'benefit from taking the contents of the flrst bottle. I continued to take the medi cine, getting stronger and better every dry. I soon regained my former strength and energy, the pains left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy."

HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

HOW THE MONTHS WERE NAMED. January is of I-.nt.in origin, from the word Januarius, named by the ancient Romans in honor of their so called "god," Janus, to whom the sea son of the year was snared. February comes from the Latin word Februarius, derived from feb rum, which, in the Sabine language, meant a "purgative"; hence comes the Roman festival of lustration and expiation.

THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

THE OLD DOCTOR'S STORY. "J have a little story to tell you, boys," the old doctor said to the young people the other even ins- "One day—a long hot day it had been, too —I met my father on the road to town. 'I wish you would talce this package to the village for me, Jim,' he said, hesitating. Now I was a hoy of twelve, not fond of work, and was just out of the hayfield, where I had been at-work since daybreak. I was tired, dusty and hungry. It was two miles into town.

If I did re fuse he would go himself—he was a gentle, patient old man—hut some thing stopped me—one of God's good angels, I think. 'Of course, father, I'll, take it,' I said, heartily giving my scythe to one of the men. He gave me the package. 'Thank you, Jim,' he said, 'I was going myself, hut somehow I don't feel very strong to day.' ...

Chill Proof. The Duke of Fotlieringill had given a great feast at Fotlieringill Castle to commemorate the coming-of-age of his son and heir, the dashing Lord Highcoliar. To this function had been invited the journalistic representative of a leading "daily." On the scribe's return to Fleet-st. he was asked to relate his adventures at the ducal home, and, among the questions, someone asked him "if the duchess's affability had not somewhat embarrassed him." "Not a bit of it," he replied, with that air of serene ease, calmness, and self-satisfaction which so eminently becomes him. "Before I took up newspaper work, my boy, I used to test refrigerators!"
