A friend recommended Clements Tonic, and that saved him This letter has been recorded because of its great ernestness, and the Way the writer, Mr. Holliday, expresses his sufferings and recovery.

TO DEVELOP THE BUST. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

TO DEVELOP THE BUST, A simple, safe, and harmless way in which any lady, no matter how thin or old, can increase her bust development from 2 to 5 inohes in a few weeks is to take 20 grains of phormoid, a standard concentrated food product, just before each meal. For convenience it is best to ask your chemist to supply you with the standard phormoid tablets, which contain 20 grains each. For a few shil lings you can get enough to last yon two weeks, daring which time your bust should develop from 1 to 2 inches. Many iadies report 5 inohes develop ment in four weeks, and at the same time marked improvement in the general health. Phormoid is pleasant to tho taste. One of the most appreciated gifts that King George received at Christmaa time came from the Maharajah Scindia, of Gwalior. This gift, which was form ally presented to His Majesty at Buck ingham Palace, consists of 4] ambulanca cars, 4*officers' cars, five motor lorries, and ten motor cycles.

NO MORE FAT PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

NO MORE FAT PEOPLE. Most fat people seem to think that the only way to take off fat is to use dangerous drags, follow a starvation diet or take strenuous excercise. But all this is nonsence, and, thanks to the recent discovery of an emiuent scientist, thousands of men and women are taking off several pounds of useless fat a week, by simply rubbing on to the fat part —hips, arms, chfn, or abdomen—a simple lotion made by pouring a cup of hot water over a dram of quassia chips ; let it stand for a minute, then strain through a cloth, and add 3 ounces of Cirola Bark Extract. Pour the mixture into a bottle and apply night and morn ing, rubbing it in with the hands for about 10 minutes, using a circular mo tion, and the fat will almost seem to melt away before your very eyes. The ingredients, which are inexpensive, can be had of any chemist, and the results obtained are really remarkable. Experiments carried out by experts in England have proved that motor en gines do not " knock " when b...

CELESTINE'S CONQUEST. I Charming Story of a Real Love Romance Behind the Scenes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

CELESTINE'S CONQUEST, j I Charming Story of a Real Love Romance Behind the Scenes. "And, Mr. Westerham, we've got Mr. Hayes—Mr. Shalto Hayes, the Shalto Hayes—to play 'Jack' in 'The Worldling!'" I gave the announcement all its pro per emphasis. 'I'm Inez Anstruther, and my husband and I always got up a theatrical performance once a year for the vicar's blanket fund at bur house, Anstruther Legh. But the curate—poor little Rev. Oc tavius Westerham—gave his wide smile and his "Indeed!" and masticat ed seed-cake. Miss Moffat—my gos sipy cousin—the curate and I were alone at tea in the drawing-room. "I see you aren't impressed," I de plored. Mr. Hayes is a great man— a star. We're awfully lucky to get him. We hardly know him, you know. On the spur of the moment—at a bridge party—I asked him, and he con sented to come."

THE AGE TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

THE AGE TO MARRY. "A girl is both mentally and physi cally stronger after twenty than be fore, and is more fixed in character and habits. It is, therefore, better i that she marries after twenty than before she has reached that age." The journal from which the above is a quotation goes on to explain, in a straight talk to girls, what it sig nifies:— "Many people who have not made any study of elementary physiology are unaware of the fact that a girl .has not attained her full growth at twenty. "True, she has probably—indeed, almost certainly—attained her full height, for. few people add to their inches after they complete their sec ond decade; but there are other forms of growth besides that of increasing' inches. There is, for instance, the growth of the bones. This is a very important part of bodily growth, and it is not finally finished until girls ar rive at the end of their twenty-fifth year. "Take the spinal column, for exam ple. At birth it consists of one hun dred and fifty ...

THE POST-OFFICE AT THE FRONT. How Soldiers Get Their Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

THE POST-OFFICE AT THE FRONT. Hovv Soldiers Get Their Letters. One of the brightest moments for Tommy is when letters from home are distributed from the-field post office tent. The men'who control this important branch are generally skill ed workers who have had experience in post-office work. They are select ed in many cases from the Post Office Rifles, the well-known Territorial force. When troops are continually moving from one point t$ another, there are obvious difficulties in the way of the men who have to keep the soldiers supplied with letters and par cels. The general plan is to estab lish a head postal office at a town in the rear of the fighting line, well out of reach of the enemy. This base feeds the field post-office, which merely consists^ of; a tent. Each force at the front carries its post office about with it, and when a camp is struck, one of the first tents to be pitched is the one which handles the soldiers' letters. This erection is guarded by sentries with fix...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

POULTRY NOTES. A little sun-flower seed occasionally | will help gloss the plumage. ' The most profitable hens as a rule are not the stylish ones. Filthy houses are doubly dangerous during hot weather. The male bird is half the breeding pen. It pays to get the best when | you buy. I When a poultry-keeper fails to I make a success it is generally be , cause he is too lazy or indifferent to keep the poultry-houses clean. In selecting breeders for the com ing season, pick out the large, well developed females that have been good layers, and mate them with a vigorous, healthy male. It is a mistake to try to keep too many hens for the room you have. Better drop off a lot of them and give the rest a chance. You will do bet ter, and so will the hens. In building the house do not have the roosts too high. A foot or two is high enough. There is danger of the fowls injuring themselves flying down from a high roost, .especially the heavier birds. Old hens commence laying late and leave off ear...

CONDEMNED TO BE SHOT Thrilling Story of War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

CONDEMNED TO BE SHOT Thrilling Story of War. I ■ A cold, stormy night in the month of March, 1807. Marshal Lefere, with twenty thousand French troops, had invested Dantzic. The city was garri soned by seventeen thousand Russian and Prussian soldiers, and these, to gether with twenty or thirty thousand well-armed citizens, presented nearly double the force which could be brought to the assault. So there was need of the utmost vigilance on the part of the sentinels, for a desperate sortie from the garrison, made una wares, might prove calamitous. At midnight Jerome Dubois was placed upon one of the most import ant posts in the advance line of pic kets, a narrow strip of land raised above the marshy flat, called the Pen insula Nehrung. For more than an hour he paced his lonesome beat with out hearing anything more than the moanhig of the wind and the driving of the rain. At length, however, an other sound broke upon his listening ear. He stopped and presently he called— "Who's there?" ...

FEEDING HENS LEAN MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

FEEDING HENS LEAN MEAT. Lean meat, or its equivalent in in sect life, is one of the essentials in egg production. If meat in some form were supplied daily, there would be sufficient eggs secured over and above the number that would be ob tained without the use of meat, not only to pay for the meat, but to in crease the profits. It _ is the most available food product that has yet been discovered to supply fowls the elements most difficult to get from grain and most needed to make bone, muscle and feathers, to make eggs, to support health and vitality. It con tains more than four times the egg producing value of grain. It tones up the entire system. It makes eggs more fertile, develops earlier broilers and layers, makes red combs and glossy plumage. It always doubles the I profits.

FIGHT LICE AND DIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

FIGHT LICE AND DIRT. Those irritating, strength-sapping pests, lice, multiply with exceeding rapidity during hot weather, and pre caution against them should be dou bled, rather than halved, as it often is during the "poultryman's dull sea son," as the summer is called. The little red mites flourish under the roosts and in the cracks and crevices adjacent, and frequent painting with some liquid lice-killer is needed to keep them down. Cleanliness is not to be neglected, if the price of eggs fall nearly to the cost of produc tion. Dirt is twice as dangerous to health in warm weather as in cold, the heat facilitating all sorts of de cay, filling the air with disease germs and making it unfit for fowls to breathe. The benefits of comfortable, healthful surroundings are manifest in the increased egg yield during the summer, and the better condition and greater productiveness the following winter. The birds moult better, their new feathers grow quicker, and not having to repair so much w...

DODGING THE DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 13 February 1915

DODGING THE DOCTOR. Men burning with zeal to serve their country in her hour of need sometimes resort to amusing and in genious ways of hiding ..from the hard-worked medical officer their physical defects. An Irishman, during the Boer War, used to tell of the way he de luded an easy-going medico into thinking that he had the complete use of both his eyes when, in point of fact, only one was any good at, all. The doctor, he said, made him stand a certain distance away from a board, and told him to count the I spots on it, first with one eye and then with the other. He was ordered to cover up his right eye—the blind one—first with one hand; this he did with his left hand, and, of course, counted the spots correctly. When he was told to cover up the other eye, he merely put his other hand over the same useless optic and read the spots again. The other day a man failed to en- > ter Kitchener's Army owing to the fact that he was a fraction of' an inch under the required height. He wen...
