A Chemist's Warning to Dyspeptics. Drugs That Deceive. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

A Chemist's Warning to Dyspeptics. Drugs That Deceive. "To the majority of sufferers from indigestion and dyspepsia, drugs are a curse instead of a bles sing," remarked an emlu^nt chem ist recently. "The same might also be said of various artificial digest ants. Pepsin, for instance, is widely used by dyspeptics. Now, pepsin may be very valuable to the aged or to a person whose stomach is weak from long illness, but care ful research has proved that in most cases of indigestion and dys pepsia the stomach is quite healthy and the digestive organs unimpaired —the trouble is entirely due to acid in the stomach and consequent fer mentation ol the food contents. Artificial digestants are, of course, useless in such cases, and I know of no drug which can be safely em ployed ; but practically all chemists stock a simple antacid known as bisurated magnesia, which is re commended by physicians and used in hospitals as an effective antacid and food corrective- I have taken bisurated magnesia ...

PRINCIPLES OF RAILWAY MAN AGEMENT Till' WICDDKRBURN SKRVICK The ellorts oi the Korong Shire Council to bring about ;m improve ment in the train service with Wed derburu have resulted in failure and the com.oil appears content to rest oi\ the fruitlessness of its efforts.

Cr Gray said the commiss ioners were the best judges. They (councillors) would lie asking them to conduct the railways on business lines and also say they wanted an extension that would not pay.

You know your business, Mr. Editor, and it was simply splendid the manner in which you handled the whole question. The people are beginning to realise, if they did not do so before, that they have an educated man to deal with in the editor of the "Standard." With your pen you can do such a lot for the whole district, and I can say you have done wonders already in bringing before the public rrany local and dis trict matters that concern us all. Take the Shire Council reports—they are just the thing. We never got such good re ports untii you came to Hoort. How ever, I think I am getting away from the question.

TOWN LIGHTING [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

TOWN LIGHTING Sir.—Now that ■ there seems a chance, after long waiting to get the town deccntly lighted a word on the question might not be amiss. Al though I think highly of acetylene yet I know it to have its faults. The generator for one thing becomcs greatly heated nntvseenis to have an effect on the light, choke up the the burners and corode the pipes. Another trouble which I have no ticed is that too much gas is some tin/es made after the gas is oflf and is wasted. It is claimcd that this trouble docs not occur with air gas. The choice lays between these two and as wc want to have whichever is the best 1 would like if you could tell us something about air gas, just such another able artielcas you had about acetylene.

CORRESPONDENCE THE PRICE OF BREAD TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

CORRESPONDENCE THE PRICE OF. BREAD TO THF KDITOR Sir,—If the priCtfof bread is too high and is more than the city peo ple can afford it would be thought that there would be some curtail ment of their ammusement, but pic ture theatres are flourishing in every suburb of Melbourne. In one of Saturday's dailies it was announced that four more picture theatres, capable of seating 2000 people each, and built in the. latest American style, had been erected. As these places absorb the surplus cash to a great extent, and they arc still ! going ahead, the dear loaf has not affected the city people much. Per haps the farmers ought to demand cheap machinery and implements, or cheap bags, which mean over 3d per bushel in many cases. Thanking you k 1 anticipation of space in your columns. Yours etc. GROWER.

A Cat's Life. IS TWENTY-ONE YEARS A RECORD? [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

A Cat's Life. IS TWENTY-ONE YEARS A RECORD? A cat belonging, to Mr. It. J. Frary, of Great Walsingham, Norfolk, hav ing died at the age of twenty-one years, lier owner is anxious to knpw whether the age is a record. A naturalist states that tweny-one years, although a very great age for a cat, has occasionally been exceeded. Two InstaCnces were recorded at Ban bury of cats twenty-seven and twenty four years old respectively. Another cat which lived tweuty-thrce years at Aberystwyth " went about ' for the greater part of its life on three legs, having lost a foot in a trap. The long-life record for cats ia, how ever, probably' held by "Tiger," the chief ratter at the railway goods sheds at Peterborough, which was still living at the age of twenty-seven in 1918.

Harvest Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

Harvest Returns. The Lands Department advises that in dealing with the harvest returns it is being discovered that a good many growers have delivered wheat in other names, notwithstanding that the pre ferential lien held by the Government imposes the obligation of delivering to the board by the lienor. The Depart ment states that evidently in some casea this is done to defeat the Govern ment claim, and as both the lienor and any other person dealing with the wheat are liable, under the provisions of the Seed Advances Act 1914, it is intended to take legal proceedings through the Crown Solicitor to enforce the penal ties of the act.
