No More Indigestion. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
• No More Indigestion; WOUDERS ACHIEVED BY '/^KVy PRODUCT. ; It seems reasonable to (appose that in a shortftipio there will be no mQre' indigestion or dyspep sia. 'I'll© old style "digestives" suoh as bismuth, pepsine, charcoal, soda, etb., which after all are.only temporary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple uutnoid, known to chemists as bisurated magnesia, with the result that physicians or* being oalled upon to. treat fewer canes of stoinaoh trouble than ever before. This is. not so very sur prising when it is remembered that, acooiding to available statistics, over. 90. per oent of all stomnoh troubles uro due to aoidiLy. BiBU rated magnesia may readily be ob tained from any chemist at a.small cost, and half>a-teaBpoonful taken in a little' water after raealB will immediately .neutralise all harmful acids in the stomaoh, praveut fer mentation] and thus rondor the food easy of digestion.'
MOTOR CAR MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
MOTOR OAE MONEY. EMPLOYER GIVES TO EMPLOYES An industrial experiment that is causing much controversy in the world's press just now is that of Henry Ford, an Auiorican motor car manufacturer, who is distributing 10,000,000dol. of profits among his em ployes. These profits are distributed in weekly portions in tho pay envoi opes of tho workers, and with the wages bring tho ordinary worker over Ml per day. Detroit, where the Ford plant is situated, has been inundated since the announcement was made with seekers after employment where the high wageB are handed out, ac cordingly the paymont of double tho ruling wage has had a most unsettling effect upon other employers' labor in the motor industry. Ford has highly specialised all operations in his fac tory, with the result that each man of tho 15,000 employes has some Bmall tusk allotted him, which practice on* i able him to porform at great speed; | but the argument against thlB sys-1 tem Is that it tends to turn the man Into a more au...

FROM PAPUA. WHITE WOMAN ON PATROL. TANGO NOT THERE YET. Mrs. Greenland, who is at present in Sydney, has Bpent just eight ■ monthB ill Fapua on the Mambaro River, in which division her husband was magi strate. It is away up near the Ger man border, and the only other white woman lived 70 miles away! "But wo knew cacli other quite well," Mrs. Greenland said, "although we actually met only three days ago, here in Sydney. They had plenty of eggs at the other station, and a na tive boy would often arrive with a lit tle gift from my unseen friend. It seemed so strange meeting for tho first time across a hotel dinner tabic, after having exchanged so many let ters through native carriers." "What did you do all day?" "Well, in the morning I'd fuss round, thinking I was very busy with odds and ends, then I'd read, and on the station there is always something happening, so that time never hangs on our hands.

CHAPTER XX. A Witness for the Defence I. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER XX. A Witness for the Defence I. Tho "Christabet". steamed into Southampton water at half-past seven o'clock on tho following evening, but it harbored no longer olther little Madame Adclti or tbo handsome American who had crossed the ocean to befriend her. Renal-Smith had taken her to the South that very morning; he was to leave her with her parents at the "gate" of Nante villc, and then to return with all dili gence to London to "settle your af fair," as he said to Hugh with much feeling. George Hedges, whose optimism was fond of waiting upon opportunity, had regained the otium cum dignitato when they made Southampton, and he put it to Hugh that a little din ner at the beat of the hotels might he a fitting prelude to the "glad" work so soon to be done in London. "You can do nothing to-night, my dear fellow"—he suggested affably, and was almost shocked when ho was reminded that much could be done. For come men joy is but meat and drink after all—the Archdeacon ! was one of t...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
There was another letter sent on toy Qeraldlne, and this from one whom Hugh had not ■ expected to in dulge In th'o candor of correspond once. St. Denys was In his old cham bers In Jerinyn-street, and there ho fretted and fumod against the world, and the wopien who helped to people the world.. What had ho done to de serve all this? he aslicB. Why evon his own son'was being turned against him. Ho meant to put that straight —to have a private tutor for the boy, and to see thai'these Infernal women didn't coddle him any longer. It was quite pathetic; to read between the lines, and to see how this aristo crat derelict desired • the very' sym pathies he had done so much to alien ate. "Provp.i.to me that thero was nothing between Patty and this man Horesford, and I will take her back to-morrow,"' ho wrote.' "It's for' the boy's sake, for I do roally believe Bhe's in love with mo, and that's a fajt." His other protestations proved, as Mat Michel said afterwards, that tho devil had boon very...

Hugh saw the groat steamer put about for Southampton, and he watched Mat come out of tho opera tor's room. An Impulsive exclama tion called the Irishman to his side. Tho hour for subterfuge had gone. "Well, old chap, is tho doctor aboard?" "No, he 1b not on board." "What mado you thin* hp would como via Cherbourg, Mat," "What the priest told me—and my commonscnse." "You thought ho would set out im mediately?" "I was sure of it." "Because of their friendship." "Man, yo Know better—'twas for tho sake of tho little girl ' "Then the priest agrees that he was In lovo with her?" "As mad in love as the other. I'd bo the same myself if she were * n this boat another day or two." "Whit will we do now, Mat?" "Cable to America, and say we're taking the child on to London." "I don't believe she'll go, Mat." "Ah, then, 'tis precious little ye know of human nature. T...

A few mouths afterwardB the town clork, who was generally known by hlB Christian name, Paul, was unfor tunate enough to have liis other leg fractured in a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neigh bor, was overheard saying— "It's a grey bad business for Paul, pulr man; but is't his aln leg or the leg that belangs to the toon that's broken?"

WHERE NOBODY DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
WHERE NOBODY DIES. People with money and people without (that is when they can) has ten off to health resorts to prevent themselves being, earlier than they de sire, placed under mother earth. Bret Harte remarked in one of his stories that he would like to find a place where no one ever died. According to the Gembrook Cemetery trustees, the Gembrook district is just the place tho American novelist was look ing for. The trustees have resign ed in a body because there is no busi ness dcing in tho burying line, and consequently, no revenue. In tho past &lt;0 years there were only two in terments, and they wore pauper cases who had strayed into the district, not residents. The trustees have accord ingly come to the conclusion that the district doesn't require a cemetery, that the local "planting ground" is wasted, and that nobody in the dis trict is ever going to die and give them a job. As a health resort recommen dation this will take some boating.

Why? [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
Why? "Why does the __baker knead the dough?" Inquired my son, aged six or sough, And 1 replied in accents lougli: "Because we knead the bread, you knougli!" "But, then, why do we need the bread?" The same inquiring youngster sead. "Because small boys have to be fead," - Quoth I. "Now, off you go to bead!" It was bound to come. The first we heard of it was from the scornful j lips of a small cadet some months, back, who reckoned that "those jolly girls ought to do compulsory train ing, too; they never do anything for their country"—and now M.H.R. Fin layson has given noticc of a motion that a Bill should be introduced mak ing service as nurses in the mili tary forces compulsory on all girls between the ages of 1G and 22.

The same occupation con stantly, whether it be work, prayer or amusement, would make us stupid and gloomy. You can dig in the dirt until you become a brute, pray until the habit makes you a monk, and play until you become a mere puppet; but cofnbine the three, it will streng then the heart and soul. Thus your work will be made more fruitful and your religion more cheerful.
