CHILD'S TERRIBLE ECZEMA. LEGS BADLY AFFECTED, ZAM3-B h K I-1LEALS EVERY SORE. Little George Bowden wus batdly crippled by running ceczena, and could only be moved about on pillows. His disease baffled the hospital doe tors. and ordinary remedies failed to evern check the painful sores. Zam Buk, however, astonished the parents by working a speedy and remarkable cure. Mrs. E. Bowden, who lives at 62 Rose-street, Darlington, Sydney, said:- "For three .months my son George suffered severely from a painful out break of eczema on his legs. The dis ease crippled him, and he had to be moved about ont pillows. We had the boy at the hospital, but the doctors there could td- nothing for him, anid various other treatmlentsi that we tried proved quite ineffective.

"He was in a shocking condition when we started to use Zam-Buk. The sores were so...
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often:i xnondler why their homlies do not looh as attractive as those of their sisters Sin town. They say they work twice as hard, and do Inot hlare half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, andti that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better af ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty:. : landl and fertiliser. There are -SO many pretty hardy plants and- shrubs that require little work and that. when once started will bloom every -season for a long time. Thererare also many.:: annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, pihlox and asters-my favorites: It is a pleasure to give away ilowers to the sick, to carry them to the altar o"' the little church, and, in fact, it seems .. .s it they are never out of pilace.

ANIMALS' SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
ANIMALS' SPEED. No animal is known to have exceed ed the speed attained by the horse. Instantaneous photographs of one fa mous specimen showed the full length of one complete stride of about 24ft. In the stride of the fastest racers the hindquarters and limbs are raised con siderably higher than the shoulders, and from this relatively great height brought downward and forward. wide ly separated from each other, to avoid striking, the forelegs. The hare has not in reality the speed of the dog. The dog, on the other hand. does not attain the speed of the horse. The giraffe is said to run at the rate of fif teen yards per second under the most favorable conditions.

THE CLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
TrIE CLIP. In m?arket contrast to' that _,f its predecessor, the clip was in every respect a good one, exhibiting as it did all tie best characteristics which were so delicient in last year's pro duction, and rarely have we seen a better grown and nourished w\o,l than that which was placed on tile market in this centre. Taken as a whole, the clip from the Riverina was a sound one, showing extra good length, den sity, and softness, although not so line in Quality, attributable to tihe mvre generous conditions under which It was grown, and carrying rather more vegetable matter in the way of burr and seed. These remarks cover wools from the whole ,f Riverina, whilst Hay district wools were seen to good advantage, carrying on the whole more condition. Lower Darling wools were again in splendid order, being deeply grown and healthy, although not quite so fine as in previous years. The Western District of Victoria produc ed a wool which has had few equals, but certainly none better in poi...
THE AUSTRALIAN WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
THE AUSTRALIAN WOOL TRADE. We aro in receipt of Messrs. Golds brouqh, Maort and Co.'s "Annual Re view for 1913-14, which, as usual, presents interesting facts to readers. and is a credit to the firm. From It we make the following extracts: In view of the fact that Australia's prosperity is vitally dependent on her primary products, it is pleasing to chronicle another successful year in what is undoubtedly the most im portant branch-her wool output. The clip of 1913 will add some £.32,000,000 to Australia's wealth. and that this result has hecn attained without any of the spoon-feeding mc thods in force In other inlltnstries is effective' testmlnl.,y of the good work dlone by the grower.

THE A.N.A. AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
THE AN.A, AND POLITICS. ----+ - As previously mentioned in " The .Mercury,' political questions were brought forward at the A.N.A. Confer ence, and ruled out by the President. Mr. A. L. Bussanl (\Varracknabeall moved :-" ''hat this conference use its influence in securing an amltendmlent of the Constitution Act, whereby pro vision will be made for all legislative elections to be conducted on the basis of adult suffrage. Mr. T. Shortell (Woodend) asked it the motion was in order. It dealt with party politics. Mr. 31. M. Phillips, Chief President: I think thie question should not be dis cussed. Sir Alexander Peacock: And you rule It out of order? Mr. Phillips: Yes. Mr. Bussan moved that the Presi dent's ruling be disagreed with. In his opinion the question was a national one, and had passed the party politic al stage. M r. D. L. M' Namara (Gartield) supported Mr. Bussan. He. said that the conference had previously accept ed resolutions which were just as po litical. Mr. Phillips said ...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. Ulster Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. -4- Ulster Troubles. In the intervals of conversation about the really great matters of life, cricket, and horseracing, one can cc casionally hear mention made of such trivial subjects as Commonwealth and State politics, and ev'en the future of the Empire. The Ulster difliculties are the subject of a good deal of con troversy in trains and trams just now; but, truth to tell, discussion of this subject is generally confined to those who are evidently violent partisans on one side or the other. Much bad lan guage, violent incorrect statements, and even fist-shaking are the usual ac companiments to these so-called argu ments, but it need hardly be said that the logic of either side is not remark able for either cogency or coherency.. One excited pair in a railway carriage the other day started amicably enough over the cablegrams in the morning paper. The I-onie Ruler of the pair regretted there should be any ditticul ties raised, and. argued fairly enough that rel...
Gone Again. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
Gone Again. At a certain public school it was the custom for the teachers to write on the blackboard any instruction they desired the caretaker to receive. One evening, while cleaning a room, the caretaker saw written: "Find the greatest common denomi nator." "Hullo!" she exclaimed. "Is that darned thing lost again." The April number of "The Story teller" Magazine is just in. The read er of this fine monthly gets splendid reading. The authors' names are a guarantee of great excellence. Jus tus Miles Forman, Mrs. Baillie Rey nolds, Warwick Deeping, I. A. R. Wy lie, Captain Shaw, J. O. Curwood write in this number. These authors could not write poorly if they tried, and it seems as though they are at their best in this number. Besides the above writers H. de \ere Stac poole. author of "The Blue Lagoon," writes a long complete novel entitled "The Presentation." With all these attractions, it is no wonder that the "Storyteller" is so great a favorite with magizine readers.
ABOUT CLEVER KIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
SABOUT CLEVER KIDS. By One Who Has Suffered. I was sitting in the Green Park pondering the address I was to give to the Try Excelsior Class for Boys Only that evening. I had nearly hit on a novel epithet when the child arrived. It had escaped from a nursemaid, who was absorbed in reading "The Marchioness of the Mill" on an ad joining seat. The infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside me. "Delightful child," he said. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to the child. I started. Was this infant to be forced upon me? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood! "Unmistakable," said the genial gentleman. "I suppose he says a great many sharp things." "There I differ. So far this after noon he has said nothing but 'Nice m...
He Was Ready. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 3 April 1914
He Was Ready. There was recently hailed into cou: a little Irishman to whom the thing was a new experience. He was, how ever, unabashed, and wore the air of a man determined not to get the worst of it. "Prisoner at the bar," called out the clerk, "do you wish to challenge any of the jury?" Whereupon the Celt looked the men in the box over very carefully, and with a skilled eye. "Well, I tell ye," he finally replied, "O'im not exactly in trainin', but Oi could pull off a round or two with that fat old boy in th' corner."

Bennett, has (says the ' 'dvertiser ) completed a tour through East Gippsland, which was undertaken with the object of meeting his constituents, and also doing some propaganda work in support of Lib eralisnl.

Price, President of the Tambo Shire, presided, Mr. Bennett referred to his visits up the Tambo Valley as nIost encouraging to the future suc cess of the Liberal policy. In every place he had found electors alive to the necessity of the time.

SALE TEMPERANCE BAND EASTER FAIR. The Easter Fair in connection with, and in aid of, the above hand, which was opened by the Mayor (Mr. M. T. Cullinan) on Thursday afternoon, was continued on Thursday and Friday nights and Saturday afternoon and evening. We have already given the winners of the various cooking and fancy-work competitions. On Friday evening the Temperance Band marched from their hall in York-street, via Stawell-street, to Rlaymond-street, and thence to the Temperance Hall, where the Sale Borough Band, who were giving their assistance to the fair, were lined up ready to march. The torches, lent by the fire-brigade, were transferred from the Temperance Band to the Borough Band, and the latter marched and played some spirited music. On their return to the Temperance Hall, the bands united, and played in good style 'Invercargill" and "Victoria." This united effort was much appreci ated by the large crowd which had been attracted by the music. Inside the hall a busy time ...
