How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 23 April 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such, return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper may live sintply upon the revenue derived from the subscription? and advertisements, but ho ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived, from general printing. Therefore ,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all your printing.

A New Stimulant. / .This .is > a'drug called theobromine. It ' Is said to net favourably in cases of palpitation and flatulence of a nervous oharacter. Mi'. I». V. West tells us' that ) he administered it to a patient suffering' thus .without her. knowledge, and that the '..theobromine removed the palpita tion and " pains in the heart," and had a. marked influence on digestion. Theo-' bromine Is the active principle of good cocoh, and we are told it is not like caffeine, a cumulative drug; that it lias not the exciting qualities of caffeine— the active principle, of coffee—and that it may be taken for a long time without injurious effects, and is invaluable in heart disease. Well, I have to bid my readers beware of it unless prescribed by. a doctor. That murderous drug, hy drate of chloral, which led so many people tq insanity and death, was crackon nn m a similar way. -Dr. Gor don Stables.
