FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 17 September 1915

FOR WOMEN nerfinaecss "Auibrosine.") Mary Boazman in ''Woman at Homo' provides some very outspoken remark, on "The Manner of Different Profes sional Women." The professional wo man, says the nritor, is a new comer, wlio stormed and carried a new country for herself. ''The entrance or women into professional and business life is changing the manners of the sex, even in tlio schoolroom." Advice is given as to what is necessary for the success of a business woman, thus: "You must seem to know ovn when you are pro j loundly ignorant, v "Y'ou must pub ; lish your triumphs, and bs discreetly silent about your defeats.'' The writer says that since Longfellow and a grate ful country canonised Florence Night ingale, the trained nurse has been a .romantic figure, and proceeds: - "Iicr manner expresses her innate conviction that she is of value to the community. It is not suft-ass'erfive, but commanding, at its best, maternal. She knows so much better than you do, what is good i'or you. No dou...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 17 September 1915

EARNED, NOT BOUGHT. How hard it often is to earn and maintain a good reputation, and how easy it is to lose one. As with a man's reputation, SQ it is with other things in this life. Some things achieve a reputation, which stays with them. They are founded on intrinsic value. They face the public backed up by honesty, and work their way quietly and thoroughly. People want 110 better proof of merit than is con tained in the following experience: - Mrs. D. Forey, Railway-crescent, Korumburra, says:-"Some years ago I was suffering-terribly with sharp, shooting pains across my back. These pains prevented me from stooping or moving about freely, and disturbed my rest at night, as I could not remain in one position for any length of time. Other symptoms of kidney disorder were, dropsical swellings round my ankles, pufflness under the eyes, and irregular secretions. I went on suffer ing in this way until I got Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, which a friend advised me to take. After a few dose...

THE CHILDREN'S BREAKFAST. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

THE CHILDREN'S BREAKFAST. Porridge, with sugar and milk, makes a good breakfast dish for growing chil dren. The porridgo mu t bo well-cooked over night, and warmed in the morn ing. It is cheap and nourishing, and helps to mako bone. It prevents rickets. When a child's legs begin to bend, you say, "What a pity tho child began to walk too soon." There you are wrong. No child begins to walk too soon. The instinct of the infant is a sure guide. He'will crawl, and then hold on to a chair while ho stands, and then toddle all in his own good tinie. If his bones are not strong enough to support his framo, it is his mother's fault for not giving him porridgo with sugar and milk. Perhaps tho poor another has a hard strogglo to mako both ends meet, and cannot get enough food for tho children. Sho should then apply for help. Rickots cannot be allowed to flourish as a disease in the British Em pire. Rickets is a fearful disease. I have rejected many recruits, an English doctor writes, at tho ago...

RUSSIAN WAR PICTURES. "What is Russia 'like in war time 1 . asks Jean d'Auvorgno, in an article ap j pearing in "Chambers's Journal,'' 7th August. This is a question which ccay friends are.always asking me, and, look ing back after ten months of war, I have no better answer than to say, "Probably very much like England.'.' The feverish excitement, the manifes tations, the topsey-turveydom, that characterised the first weeks o>f the war have long since died away, and the peo ple uz Russia have settied down to await results with a patience and calm ness worthy of the highest Auglo-Saxoo traditions. In Russia itself, which, liko England, is outsido the actual fighting zone, the outward picturo of life i3 much as it was before the war. There are moro soldiers in the streets. In every street, in almost every house, tlio lied Cross flag is flying. Tho hospitals are over crowded. There are a thousand and one signs that this great people is at war, and yet so great is the power of time t...

THUNDER AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

THUNDER AT SEA. Baron von Humbolt was responsible for the statement that thunder is never heard on the liigk seas-i.e., at any great distance from land-though, vio lent thunderstorms are often observed at sea and vessels are frequently struck bv lightning. Is the 'statement;, true? Or, if thunder is sometimes heard, is it sound comparatively faint? These questions have provoked discussions from time to time at meetings of the Astronomical Society of France, and have recently been taken up anew by the society. It is suggested that the other noises prevailing on shipboard during a storm may be the reason why tho thunder often passes unnoticed, but information on this subject from sailors will bo welcomed by the Frejicli astro nomers.

ANIMALS AND EARTHQUAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

.ANIMALS AND EARTHQUAKES. The influence of approaching earth quakes 011 animals has been noted long ago, ami the existence of this strange faculty has been confirmed of late years. Thus, in Japan, horses grow restless ill a peculiar manner before an earthquake. In Central America dogs and cats r.un out of the houses, and the inhabitants follow their example. At the time of the last earthquako in Italy all the birds left their nests and rose high in the air before tho shocks made themselves felt. In Sicily it is said that, tho cocks began to crow a few in stants before the commencement of the earthquake, whilst tho dogs howled.

MYSTERIOUS DEATHS. SLEEPING SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

MYSTERIOUS DEATHS. SLEEPING SOLDIERS. Oil several occasions the French have, fount! the bodies of German soldiers who, though to outward appearance un injured," had been killed by the ex plosion of a shell close to them. Death had apparently been instan taneous (says >1. Salagnac in Le Jour nal) and painless, there being no con traction of the features, and. the atti tudes being life-lilce. No sign of any internal losson was discovered in these bodies, and the man ner iu which death was caused has been a mystery until rjuito recently, when a clue was accidentally discovered by a French engineer, M. Ariioux. An officer at tho front sent him a pocket aneroid baromoter damaged by tho explosion of a big shell only three yards away from it. M. Arnoux found that one of the two levers by which the oscillations of the mercury were transmitted to tho pointer had been forced under the other, instead of re maining on tho same plane., M. Aruoux replaced tho levers in position and put tho bar...

THE PESSIMIST. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 24 September 1915

THE PESSIMIST. By Lieut.-Colonel A. A. Gracc, X.Z.F.A. ?> liccently I eaiuc in contact with our friend, the pessimist. Ho was certainly a fair sample of his tribe, for I regret to sav his life had boon by no means an unqualified success and his outlook on the -world generally was in conse quent dull and sombre. Ho expressed himself in no doubtful terms. He said emphatically that he was dubious as to the way in which the war would .end. He held out no hope for the salvation of the race, ho appeared to bo convinced that the cause of the ungodly would tri umph. Ho was indeed a vory sad, drab, doleful personage. "Sow as" there are a goodly number of these wretched people who are daily sowing discouragement, in much the same way as those awful people who are known as "carriers" of disease spread contagion among the healthy public, it may be as well to analyse the situation, if only in a general way, to show how at this great- crisis of the Emipre's anil wrong is the philosophy of desp...

Anyone who looks at a otulT map of North-west Prance will see that thero are two Eiehebourgs; there is Bicho bourg St. Vaast, but there is also Kiehebourg l'Avone, and although those two communes are separated by a bare throe or four kilometres there was in point of climate a considerable differ ence between the two. In thoso days wo had not yet taken Jfouvo Chapelle, and Bichebourg l'Avone, whieh was in front of our lines, was considered 'un healthy.' Richebourg St. Vaast, on the other hand, was well behind our lines, and was considered by our billet/mg of ficers quite a good residential neigh borhood.

ABOUT RHEUMATISM. Sufferers from rheumatism will fiud tha following letters of great interest: From Mr. Yv. Chandler, 24 Earl Street, Windsor, Yic. "For some years I suffered from rheu matic pains in my legs and arms, the joints of which would become much swollen, and I could hardly move about. I tried various remedies without deriving much benefit. Then I tried Warner's Safe Cure, and 111 a few weeks the pains ceased to "trouble me, and have not since 'returned." From Mr. E.

I did so, with the greatest pos sible benefit. The medicine entirely re moved all pain, and freed, my system from this most painful compl...

WE MUST REPEAT When everybody tells the same story. It is.- hard to say new things about Dean's Backache Kidney Pills. They cure the lame and aching back, the sufferer from kidney disorders, and the troubles of those whose urinary or ganism is wrong in its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proven. Read this: Mr. A. W. Matthews, Reid-crescent, Wonthaggi, says:-"Through having to.work in damp places I caught a bad cold, which, unfortunately, settled on my kidneys. My back commenced to acjie, and.
