THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 2 June 1914

THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO. The town lull was well filled on Friday evening last when the Creswick Picture Syndicate provided a display of unusual excellence, including as it did the great "Waterloo" film, con cerning which great expectations had been raised, and were fully realised. The presentation was a truly remark able one, and the various scenes soul stirring and realistic. The Kittle of Waterloo is one of the most famous events in history, and as the tragic conflict was waged within comparatively limited bounds, and on well defined lines, it seemed possible that the scenes might tie re enacted for reproduction on the biograph scrcen, but the carrying out of this conception presented enormous difficulties. The French troops numbered 7:,ooo, in cluding 15,000 cavalry and 240 guns; those under Wellington numbered 6S,ooo, including u.ooo cavalry and 156 guns ; while Biucher had 75.000 under his command. In order to give any semblance 01 reality to the mimic battle a huge army of supe...

The Season of Colds. Pepo Saniah the lloalth Dangers of Damp Days and Chilly Nights. This is the season of cough?, colds mil chills, and the chemists report a Dig demand for Peps, the novel hreatheable tablets for the throat and chest. Oolde are caused by invisible germs : which enter the throat and lungs through the nose and mouth. You cannot keep these germs out altogether, but with the aid of Peps you can pre vent them living and doing mischief after they have entered. By letting one or two 1'eps tablets dissolve in the mouth, you bathe every remote corner of the nostrils, thioat, and lungs, with an antiseptic and germ destroying vapour, that acts as a powerful disinfectant, and provides the soundest defence against the «<;rms of chills and colds. Being in the form of air, the Peps medicine comes into direct contact with all the delicate breathing tabes wherein the "cold germ" lurks, and also penetrates diep down into the lungs. It is impossible for ordinary Io::ruges,...

NO MORE INDIGESTION. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 2 June 1914

NO fflORE INDIGESTION. ■ •!] ii WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PKODUUT. It seems reasonable to suppose that in a short time there will he uo more indigestion or dyspepsia. The old style " digestives" such as bismuth, pepsme, charcoal, soda, etc., which after all are only temporary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple antacid, known to chemists as l'i>uratril magnesia, with the result that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that, according to avail able statistics, over ninety per cent, of all stomach troubles arc due In acidity. Ilisurated magnesia may readily he obtained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a tcaspoonf'il taken in a little water after rie.ils will immedi ately neutralise all harmful acid:, in the stonmch, prevent fermentation, and thus render the fo^d easy of digestion.
