YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the refinement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it beforQ_Wben ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in— SANDER'S EXTRACT.

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

Toot Your Own Horn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lay's an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of intellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule, the most despised of beasts, has a persistent way of let ting people know he's round by his Insistent bray. The busy little, bees they buzz, bulls belloV, and cows moo, and watch dogs baric, and ganders qnack, and- doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail, and isqueaks; pigs squeal and robins sing and even serpents know enough to hiss before they sling. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often hesitate before he'll advertise.

How to Injure Your Town. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

How to Injure Your Town. Run it down to visitors. Look sorry when a stranger talks to you of . buying property in it. Refuse to see merit in any scheme unless you are first rubber in it. Don't invest. Show your distrust by refusing to iay . out any money in it. Let your tongue wag idly about your neighbors without knowing the facts. Cut those whom in your vanity you think beneath you, and split up into classes and cliques. Refuse to advertise in your local paper. People sum up your town from its advertisement sheets. Then you will effectually damn '"your town_and district.

LEGAL JARGON. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

LEGAL JARGON. Those who are accustomed to grum ble at the length of legal documents would receive something of a shock were they to inspect some of the in struments which were commonly used 1 but a short time ago. In the "good old days," before the passing of the Con veyancing Act of 1881, deeds and set tlements frequently covered half-a dozen skins of parchment, and men were employed by law stationers for the special purpose of engrossing these imposing documents on parch ment. A few of these law writers still remain amongst us, and their ■writ- - ing on parchment is said to be most beautiful to look upon. But the Con veyancing Act practically put an and to their "profession" by greatly cur tailing the length of legal instruments. Of the unwieldy prolixity of some of the old, long-winded conveyances a law reformer of a humorous turn of mind gave the following amusing ex ample: "If a man were to give an other an orange, he would merely say, 'I give you this orange.'

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1914

LADIES' LETTER. 1 t Those who have to consider ways and means will do well to carefully c eschew the more pronounced lines of * the spring fashions, because' almost " assuredly they will not be generally j worn here. I doubt if they would have taken with Melbourne people in f any case, though they might have been ( favored, to a certain extent, in Syd ney. People in Melbourne are rather more eclectic in the way of fashions and more prone to adapt and moderate ' the most marked characteristics. However, the outbreak of war has brought about such a distaste for the outre and the eccentric that it will influence Ell fashions very strongly and tend to do away altogether with the fussy and frivolous effects. This will not necessarily mean that they will rush to the other extreme and have things only severe and depress ing. Indeed, that is what we should strive to avoid at all costs, for there will be gloom enough without women seeking to add to it by their dress. Many are already doing s...

He would like the council to submit a scheme foi making the more urgent roads in the shire. It might cost £5000 or £10,000.
