Flood Damages. ESTIMATED APPROXIMATELY AT £10,000. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917
Flood Damages. ESTIMATED APPROXIMATELY AT £10,000. THE magnitude of the damage done by the flood waters of the last fortnight, can only bB apDroximately estimated as re ports come to hand from various quarters. 'J'liit of couran only deals with road w«ya and bridges in the sliiru. While many etockowners have tufferod con siderably, the damage done to rural producer!) «an only be gathorod as tbo fl iori waters subside, and an t xatriinntion i. made r f such c.vips til ir. havo been under water so long. The damage in thn respect is confined chiefly to En robin and along to Myrtleford and Buffalo River. It ia generally regurdod that- all maize crops that hav« beau flooded are prac tically destroyed, as in most cases tho maize waa forced to the ground by tbn strong currents of water, and naturally is well silted. Potatoes, too, have been washed out, and oven thoso remaining in tho ground must deteriorate iu value by tho lengthened time that must elapse beforo they can be take:) out. In ...
Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917
Mining. If the mining ludustry of Australia were nuder control of one authority, he would, during the war, bend his energies and resources to increase the yield of gold. ? His urgent reason for doiug so would be that every ounce of gold produced at this moment is the basis of a credit three or four times greater than the actual value of the gold itself. The importance of this factor in the war, which is now costing Great Britain six millions per day, can hardly be over-estimati d. It becomes the duty of all governments presiding uver gold bearing countries withiu the Empire to stimulate the production of nil metals, but notably gold, silver, lead, copper, tin, iron, wolfram, molybdenite, graphite, and any other metals used in war. This Victoriau industry has fallen sadly in rcceut decades. In 1904 the total number of miners employed in this State was 24,331; in 1913 there were only 11,931, aud we fear the figures are less to-day. Of this number 1,130 are employed in dredging, a form...

That Did It. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917
That Did It. His aunt was ricli and elderly. She had called, unexpectedly, when lie was out, and his wife was trying to enter tain licr by such methods as she thought to be best conducive to their future welfare. The old lady had recently ^dded a gramophone to her establishment, and when she heard that early that morn ing her loving nephew had made for her a record o£ her favorite cornet solo, she was delighted. "How nice of him!" she said. "Can I hear it?" "Well," said her niece, "we haven't tried it yet,- but still, I'll put it on." It was a pronounced success, and the old lady was charmed. But her feelings changed when, after the solo was finished, the instrument brought out with, fatal clearness: - "Phew! If that's not good for an extra hundred in the old girl's will, I'm &lt;i Dutchman!"

Indigestion. The following letters oontain mat ter o£ interest to sufferers from indi gestion. From Mr. George Franklin (ex-De tective-Sergeant),, 129 Bathurst street, Hobart, Tas. | "About ten years ago I suffered I severely from dyspepsia and indiges , tion, and trred several doctors in or der to obtain . relief, but none of them succeeded in benefiting me. Eventually, I went to Melbourne and consulted an eminent doctor in that city. After he had treated me for a month he advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. After I had taken one bottle of Warner's Safe Oure I felt wonderfully eased, my appetite came back, and I was able to eat and en joy my meals, which F had not done for years. I took, altogether, about ten bottles of Warner's Safe Cure, and can confidently say that my cure was due to that medicine. I have not suffered since."

SETTLING HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 22 June 1917
SETTLING HIM. In a small town between Welling ton, N.Z., and Plymouth, the women took a "conscientious objector" in hand with some originality of method. He was a young man, a farmer, and engaged to be married to a daughter of a parson resident near one of the Maori settlements. A deputation ot ladies waited upon the "objecter" and informed him-politely, of course that lie must decide by ten o'clock that night to enlist. If he did not do so the troubles of Pharaoh would not be in it. He refused to listen to the ladies, who at once set out to the loca tion of his intended bride. They suc ceeded in obtaining her consent to give the young farmer the go-by un less he enlisted. They brought the young lady to him, and she laid down, in fine, flat-line language, the duty he owed his Empire. "If you don't go, our affair is all off," she said. "If you enlist, I'll marry you the day you don the l;haki." That fetched him.

Hit the Mark. | The pretty school-teacher had ask : ed her class for the best original defi- ! | nition of "wife," and the boy in the i i corner promptly responded, "A rib." She looked at him reproachfully, and I nodded to the boy with dreamy eyes 1 i who semed anxious to say something, j . "Man's guiding star and guardian angel!' he said, in response to the nod. "A helpmeet!" put in a little llaxen-haired girl. "One who soothes man in adversity," suggested a de mure little girl. "And spends his money when he's flush," added the in ! corrigible boy in the corner. There was a lull, and the pretty, dark-liaired girl said slowly, "A wife is the envy of spinsters." "One who makes a man hustle," was the next suggestion. "And keeps him from making a fool of himself," put in another girl.
