MAGNESIA FOR DYSPEPTICS. SPECIALIST RECOMMENDS IT INSTEAD OF DRUGS. "Only those who are in constant touch with sufferers from indigestion and dyspepsia can fully realise the harm dono by the improper use of drugs and artificial digestants," remarked an emi nent specialist recently. "Personally I rarely advocate the use of drngs in the treatment in the treatment of digestive or stomach troubles, for in practically every instance I have proved the under lying cause to be excessive acidity of the stomach and consequent fermentation of th& food contents. - Therefore, in place of the once widely used drugs I invari ably recommend the use of magnesia to neutralise the acidity and stop the food fermenting, and the wonderful results I have obtained convince me that there is no finer treatment for indigestion, dys pepsia, etc., etc. It must, of course, be clearly understood that I do not em- j ploy or advise the use of such forms of magnesia as citrates, acetates, sulphates, etc.—the...

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

General Gallieni, the French War Minister, is convinced of the ultimate victory of the Allies. The Germans, he declares, were defeated at the battle of the Marne, and are now caught in a vice, from which they are fighting desperately to escape. The recent battle in the Champagne convinced the French that the Germans now on the Western front are inferior soldiers. Mr T. S. Marshall, Chief Officer of the Country Fire Brigades Board, has expressed himself as highly pleased at the way in which the country fire bri gades in Victoria had responded to the call to the colors, remarking that over 600 firemen were on active service. Georges Carpentier, the French I champion heavy-weight boxer, has been awarded the French War Cross for calm and conspicuous bravery at the front. Carpentier is serving with the Flying Corps, and during fog and rain on 25th September, flew over the German lines at an altitude of 600 metres. He made several flights and always showed re markable sangfroid. He never ...

WHO WAS "SAM BROWNE"? [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

WHO WAS "SAM BROWNE"? There are very few people who to-1 day, when khaki is the only fashion able wear, have not heard an officer talk of his "Sam Browne" or seen the legend "Sam Browne" belts in a shop window, and the question natur ally arises—Who was Sam Browne? As Wellington is responsible for the adoption f a certain type of boot in the Army, so the late General Sir Samuel James Browne, V.C., of Ryde, Isle of Wight, was the originator of the arrangement of straps which sup port the sword-belt which every Brit ish officer wears. The sword-belt which it superseded was a lop-sided affair, supported by one strap which passed over the shoulder and across the chest and impeded the breathing. General Sam Browne introduced a belt supported by two straps worn exactly like ordin ary braces—crossed at the back and coming straight down in front, and a few months before the General died in 1901, at the age of seventy-eight, an Army Order appeared requiring the famous belt to be worn on acti...

FOE THE FARMER. CURING LUCERNE HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

FOE THE FARMER. CURING LUCERNE HAY. The crop should be cut when in the right stage of growth, and when there is a prospect of fine weather ahead until the hay is in the stack. As soon as any dew, which may he pres ent in the morning, is of? the crop, the .mower may be started. If dew or light rain should fall on the crop in the swath immediately after cut ting, it will not do any harm. After the cut crop has wilted somewhat, but before the lea.ves become dry and brittle, it should be raked into win drows. A practical guide is to rake as soon as the lucerne feels crisp un derfoot. The exact time to follow ■with the rake is dependent upon wea ther conditions. If the weather is very hot and dry the rake can almost immediately follow the mower, while if it be cool and dull, the crop may be allowed to remain in the swath for a day or more before raking into windrows. If the plan is. to cure in the windrow, the hay will be ready for stacking in from one day of very good curing weather up ...

INTENSITY OF LIFE. A Curiously Human and Pathetic Document From the Trenches. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

INTENSITY OF LIFE. A Curiously Human and Pathetic Document From the Trenches. A remarkable document from a Vorticist in the French trenches— probably the last he wrote, appears in the second number of "Blast." Its author is Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, sculptor, who, after months of severe fighting and two promotions for gal lantry, was killed in a charge at Neuville St. Vaast. He says:— "I have .been fighting for two months and I can now gauge the in tensity of life. Human masses teem and move, are destroyed, and crop up again. Horses are worn out in three weeks, die by the roadside. Dogs wander, are destroyed, and oth ers come alo-rg. With all the destruc tion that works around us nothing is changed, even superficially. Life is the same strength, the moving agent that permits the small individual to assert himself. "This war is a great remedy. In the individual it kills arrogance, self-esteem, pride. It takes away from the masses numbers upon num bers of unimportant units, whose economi...

Nothing in Them. "William," said the good wife, looking up from her paper, "here I see an article that says a man is su ing , his wife for divorce, simply be cause she went through his pockets after he vras asleep. Goodness knows, William, probably the poor "woman never got a farthing from the brute of a husband in any other way!" "Uh, huh," replied William. "William," came from his better half, "don't you dare sit there and 'uh-huh' me in such a manner! What would you do if you woke up and found me going through your poc kets?" "Who—roe?" asked the sleepy hus band, who had already turned over hisi pay envelope to the boss of the house. "Why, I'd get up and help you search, of course, my dear!"

MAKING GOOD. It Pays to Wear a Smile and a I Clean Collar. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

MAKING GOOD. It Pays to Wear a Smile and a I Clean Collar. I ! A few years ago two men began J taking their farm stuff down to the city. They had the same plan—that of going right around to houses and talking -with people about their eggs and butter and other things. One man did well; the other made a failure of it and quit. Why? If you j had been following those men about | as they went their rounds, it would not have taken you long to answer that question. One went about with his trousers tucked into the tops of his boots, for all the world as if the streets were knee-deep in mud. He had his old clothes on; he wore an old hat; he had not shaved for a week—a stubby beard on his chin; and he had a hang dog look on his face, as if he consid ered everybody his enemy. He did not seem to expect folks to buy his stuff, and they did not. Right around after this man went the other one. 'He had shaved that morning, so that he might get an early start; he had changed his clothes; his farm pr...

He continued: "When I think of the valor of the Irish Guards Regiment I recall the story of Pat McCann. "Pat came home one night with a black eye, a tiroken nose, and a split lip; a front tooth was gone as well. " 'Tim Sullivan done it,' he told his wife, as he began to bathe his wounds in a basin of water. "'Shame on ye!' Bridget cried.

But it's the only chance I have of finding myself at the end of a line that isn't busy."

LARGEST FIELD OF SWEET-PEAS [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 11 December 1915

LARGEST FIELD OF SWEET-PEAS The largest single field of sweet . peas i-n the world is to be found in 1 Southern California, near Redondo. It comprises 350 acres, in which are grown sweet-peas of nearly every known variety and color. It coisti | tutes a truly interesting sight, and the fragrance from the flowers loads the air so heavily as to be almost un bearable. Another single field of car nations, twenty acres in area, located near by, yearly affords a similarly marvellous sight. Besides these immense fields of sweet-peas and carnations, there are many smaller areas in California de voted, respectively to the 'growing for market of chrysanthemums, violets, daisies, asters, dahlias, all kijids of lilies, roses, and so forth. They^ are cultivated in much the same way as vegetables, requiring on an average about the same care. Many of the flowers are sold through the flower shops of the cities, but the chief in come to the growers comes from the sale of seeds. The annual shipments o...
