Hospital Queen Carnival. HOW THE MONEY WAS RAISED? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

Hospital Queen Carnival. HOW THE MONEY WAS RAISED IT Beems almost miraculous how much ] money has been raised for the Ovens District Hospital Queen competition. Queen competitions as a rule appeal to the sporting instincts of humanity, and we get rivalry which prompts peoplo to work for and take a live intorest in the object sought. The sum of over £2000 was raised in a few weeks, and w.is not ob tained from wealthy men, hut came from the pockets of the general public, who ar>> not rich. Most of it was raised in single shilling?. When the idea was mooted in the Bright district, it was thought if £50 was gathered locally it would ho as much as could ha expected, seeing that there are so many calls on tho public purBe. Yet our total was ,£107. A splendid response tinder the conditions. Harrietville residents set out to obtain a life governorship for their queen if pos. Bible, and so well did the people "shell out," that £51 was obtained before tho finish. Organisation was the wh...

A Large Order. ' The new blacksmith was ordered to make., a couple of hammer heads, but lie had" never done' any before, and was in a quandary. He sought the advice of a fellow-workman stand ing near. . - i "Go down to the hardwares," said the one addressed, "and buy two ham mer heads,'then burn 'em in the fire; the gaffer'Il know no difference." ?

Magnesia Helps Dyspeptics PATENT FOODS AND MEDICINES NO LONGER NECESSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

?#^".i.;M|aknesia Helps Dyspeptics PA1ENT FOODS AND MEDICINES NO LONGER NECESSARY. Maky dyspeptics have now discontinued the use of expansive patent foods, harm ful drugs, medicines and artificial diges tants, and instead, following the advice often given in these columns, they just take lialfa-teaupoonful of bisurated mag nesia in a lictle water after nieiile, with the result that they not only eavo monoy, but enjoy much better hoalth. Those who have once tried bisurated magnesia never dread the approach of meal times, because they know that this wonderful antacid and food corrective, which can bo readily bo obtained from any chemist, will instantly neutralise acidity and prevent all possibility of the food fermenting in tho stomach. Try this plan yourself, but tnind you get bisurated magnesia as other forme are unsuitable.

MEASURING THE HEIGHT OF TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 24 November 1916

MEASURING THE HEIGHT OF J TREES. A simple \yay to measure a tree can be practised by anyone on a sunny day or in bright moonlight. All that is necessary is a straight stick of any length! Draw a circle with a radius (half "the diameter) ol a little less than; the length of the stick. This is done by holding one end oi: the stick, say, two inches from its end, and mov ing, the other" end around, making the circle with a knife or a chip. Then place the stick in the ground exactly in .the centre of the circle, perfectly upright, and press it down until the height of the stick is exactly the same as the radius of the circle. When the end of the shadow of the stick exactly touches the circle, then also the sha dow of the tree will be exactly the same measurement in length as its height Qf course, in sucli a case the "sun will be at an exact angle 6f 45 deg. Measurements of this character can be best effected in the summer, when the-sun is powerful. To many to whom this idea may not have ...
