Nonsense. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 19 October 1894

Nonsense. "A little.nonsenso, now and then, Is reliehed by the wisest men." And yet, by the solemn and serious, thin dear, charming nonsense is tabooed as some thing too unseemly and unsolid to take a plau amid life's "stern realities." But a lltdibrao may be deemed an unworthy oauthority, let us seek a few indisputable allies, commencing with Aristotle, who has said: 'There is a foolish corner, even in the brain of the sage.' Atnd the advice of Horaso is: 'Mi hugle, now and then, a little nonsense with your wisdom." Blre, too, the writers of a later period for instance, Addiso n: "Tl?ri: are greater depths and obscurities, greater intricacies and perplrxitier, in an elaborate and well-written picee of hontense than in the most abstruse and pro. f.,und treatise rf the ehoola." Verily, he raises our dear nonsense to the very Liighte.

':DO YOU SUFFER from LIVER COMPLAINT, INDIGESTION, CONSTIPATION, HEARTBURN, FLATULENCE, Or any symptoms of a disordered diges tive apparatus ? If so, there is no rem edy in the world so safe and sure to give relief as Fletcher's Pills and Clements Tonic.

TOOLAMBA WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 19 October 1894

TOOLAMBA WEST. The present rain has done much good, and there is now every promise of an average wheat yield. Grass is not so 1 plentiful as might have been expected, nor is there so tnmch growth in the crops, and had not the late rains come the yield would have been somewhat , scanty. Several farmers in this district have put in sniall patches of potatoes for t cxpesriment, they seem to be progressing favourably. The supply of milk at the Baldwins ville creamlury is steadily increasing. The price paid is 2:Zd per gallon, and the suppliers are content with that return. The manager separates on Sunday. Thle price of bags is a great tax oa i the wheat grower, for which no allow auice is made by the purclaser.
