After the war, continued Mr. Hughes, the allied nations, hav ing learned in suffering and in vic tory to know each other, would es tablish closer trading relations.

HAVE YOU REALLY GOT DYSPEPSIA ? THE MAGNESIA TEST. Physicians say that there are com paratively few cases of true dysqpep sia. the majority of the people who complair of these justly dreaded ail mentt being merely victims of exces sive acidity of the stomach. Now there is a si.mple test whereby any one cai tell whether the pain exper ienced after eating is, due to exces eive acidity or to real dyspep?ia. Obtain from the chemist some bis urated magnesia, and, immediately after your next meal, take half a teaspoonful of this in a little water. If, as is more than likely, the symp toms which now distress you, such as heartburn, flatulence flushed fact and an uncomfortable feeling of fulness, are due to acidity you will benefit considera(bly from the use of bisurated magnesia, because it instantly neutralises the danger oils acid and also prevents all pos sibility of food fe~rmenting in the stomach. On' the other had, should no benefit follow the use of hisurated magnesia, it may be ass...

The happy Boches chortled in their glee And ponderous fraus grew abso lutely skittish England--Gott strafe her and her hireling band-- Was wholly at the mercy °of the rover;' Wild shrieking panic reigned throughout the land, And without doubt the war would soon be over.

AMERICA'S RUPTURE WITH GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 13 February 1917
SAMERICA'S RUPTURE WITH I GERMANY. Whatever may be said of Presi , dent Wilson's actions during the present war, he certainly cannot be 3t ustly accused of acting with undue haste in breaking off diplomatic re lations with Germany. He did no thing abruptly or without consider able premeditation. His patience and his desire to avoid war vwere carried to such an extent that these virtues became almost faults. Ame rican protests to Germany against violations of international law nand the rights of neutrals were answered1 either by evasions or by prom:ses that were never kept. The corres pondence that followed the cold blooded Lusitania murders in May, 1915, was marked on the German side by a succession of singular ex cuses, but it culminated in the Ame rican warning that any repetition of f such acts would be regarded as "de h liberately unfriendly." Three d months after the Lusitania outrage, and in defiance of America's warn ing, the Arabic was sunk. Every . one naturally expected th...
