EDITORIAL. ADVENT. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 27 November 1914
EDITORIAL. ADVENT. Next Sunday the Holy Catholic Churob throughout the world commences a new Church year the initial season of whioh is Advent, which is a period of prepara tion ending with the joy of Christmas. It is not regarded as so solemn a season as Lent, but nevertheless it is a time which the Church speoially recommends for stricter self-examination and repent ance. The meaning of the word is COMING, and in it we are reminded not only of the Coming in "great humility" but of the time when "He shall come again to judge both the quick and the dead." Therefore we should also regard it as a time of warning, and renewal of the Christian life. The text last Sunday taken from the GoBpel bids us "Gather up the fragments that remain that nothing may be lost," bids us take a retrospect of the year that is gone, and while lamenting our many errors remem ber that much remains on whioh to build during the coming year. One of our resolutions should be to endeavor this year to understand o...

"THE BILIOUS HABIT." HUSBAND AND WIFE IN SYDNEY FIND A REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 27 November 1914
"THE BILIOUS HABIT." HUSBAND AND WIFE IN SYDNEY FIND A REMEDY. Suppose the livt-r was pat upon its trial before a judge and jury. What charges tens of thousands of people could bring against it of having been the killjoy of their lives. They would give evidtnce of innumerable head aches, the agonising attacks of bilious ness, the feeling of utter prostration, and the havoc to good tempers caused by liverishness. Before sentence was passed by the judge, the liver would urge its own d« fence that all too frequently it had not been properly treated, that often when it needed a tonic none was given, and therefore its rebellion was not1 surprising. It is just as well, then, to keep on good terms with the liver by taking at ! the first sign of its revolt, Mother Seigel's Syrnp, the remedy which for 40 years has given relief to countless i sufferers from liverishness. Note testimony from Mrs M. Fox, 107,Rochford-sireet, Sydney, N.S.W., on February 24th, 1914:—"Your most excellent remedy, M...

The Best Remedy for * ^ "'ill Mother Seigel's Syrup as a remedy for indigestion has proved its value in thousands upon thousands of cases. For over forty years it has been recognised as a thoroughly reliable remedy for a disordered state of the organs of digestion— the stomach, liver, and bowels. Mother Seigel's Syrup is made from • the curative extracts of roots, barks, and leaves, which have a tonic and strengthening effect upon the stomach, liver and bowels. In • this way it promotes good digestion and regular action of the bowels. Mrs. Elizabeth Pickford, 60, Wilson St., Newtown, Sydney, N.S.W., on Feb. 24th, 1914, wrote : " A couple of years back I was so completely run down in health by indigestion and biliousness that my poor body felt quite worn out. I tried Mother Seigel's Syrup. Within two months I was again in full possession of good health."

B, Hobbs, the well-known Surrey batsman. "Two of the greatest necessaries in cricket," he states, "are strong nerves and good sight, but there are many thousands of young players who run the risk of shattering both by cultivating the habit of excessive tobacco-smoking, I am not going to Bay it is absolutely wrong to smoke," writes the great batsman, "but I advise those who have nob yet acquired the habit bo leave it alone. I never knew tobacco smoke to do any good jet, but I know of many cases in which it has done a lot of harm, Perhaps the worst form of smoking is the cigarette hahiq which, I am sorry to say, is nob con lined to men. The greatest enemy to success upon the field is the drinking habit, whicb, in these days of self indulgence and temptation, i? only too common, and I would stroDgly urge those of my rea...

SOUDAN GRASS. A WONDERFUL YlELDER. To the Editor. Sib,—This grass is not yet known in Ausfralia and judging by the high ly favorable reports of its great merits in the United States, especially whero the rainfall is light, it shhnld be of the utmost value to stockowners in similar places here. It comes from North Africa, and has been grown in America for some years with the most satisfactory results, and, being a deep-rooting plant ic i3 said to re sist drought well. It is largely grown in Texas and California, and it is said to attain a height of five feet in eight weeks from seed. It will cat three tons per acre twice in a season and then produco pastnro for nearly all the winter. It is also said to be most nutritions and is rnnch relished by all classes of stock. Coming from on arid snn-scorched country like the Soudan it should be worthy of the best attention of pastoralists who re quire a hardy, heavy yielding variety for the hot dry summer months,— Yours, etc., B.

QUESTION BOX. : Sincere" is informed that the Church , does nob regard dancing as wrong in any way.. Ifc is one of our most popular past times in Australia, Lite all innooen amusements, it may be made evil, bu that is less likely when Church men and women suporvise it.

EDITORIAL. CONFIRMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 4 December 1914
JKDl'i'UKiAL. CONFIRMATION. Next Sunday, at Strathmerton and Numurkah, we shall witness a ceremony Bimilar to that recorded in the eightn chapter of the Acts of the Apostles. Philip the Deacon had prepared the Samaritan converts by Baptism and much preaching for Confirmation. Then when they were qualified two Apostles, Sts, Peter and John, were sent down from Jerusalem to adminis ter the rite. The Confirmation Service inc'uded prayer for the candi dates, the laying on of Hands and the re ceiving of the Holy Ghost. It is the same in these days as in those days of the early history of the Christian Church. I see that confirmees are prepared by Holy Baptism and instruction ; I thon send for the Bishop, who is in the Apostolic Suc cession, and who alone is qualified to per form the rite. He comes, prays and lays hands on the head of each person who receives the grace of the Holy Ohost. Confirmation is, on our part, an open acknowledgement ot responsibility in the matter of our Baptismal...
