THE INCOME TAX IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916

THE INCOME TAX IN ENGLAND, f That darling of the Chancellor ot the Exchequer's heart, the incomt tux, was introduced in its modern form by William Pitt in 1798 in or der to raise the necessary money for prosecuting the war with France. Four years later It was repealed, to be succcedcd in 1803 by a propertj tax. After Napoleon had been iquashed In 1816 this also was withdrawn. Then ensued a golden era of 21 fears. The golden age came to on end (never to return, we fear) when, in 1842, Sir Robert Feel started thi concern once more at scTenpence in the pound. In 1853 it stood at eightpence. In that year the privilege of paying the lax was also extended to Ireland. As might be expected, cm the out break of the Crimean War it made a jump to one shilling and twopence, ind subsequently to one shilling and (ourpence. When the war was ended the tax was again lowered, and during the Indian Mutiny it stood at fivepence In the pound.— •Liverpool Post."

GORDON'S ROSR-TRKK AT KHARTUM. Of tlie actual work of Gordon's ! hands, there remains but a rose-bush | in tlie palace garden, which, hewn ' down by the malice of his enemies, sprang to life again with the coming of spring It is affectionately tended by an old Soudanese sergeant, who was une of Gordon's men, and Btanils in the midst of an earthly paradise. In that indulgent climate on tho banks of the dark river which carries down from the cornucopia of Abyssinia the water which fertilises Epypt the growth of gardens is tropically exuberant. This rose-tree was found blooming beside the ruins when, on the second day after its red victory at Omdurman, n British army—horse, foot, and artillery—was drawn up, in fut-1 pomp of war, beside the last earthly habitation of Charles George Gordon, to give him, in the religions of the three kingdoms, the most solemn funeral service ever read over a general killed in battle, with one of his own old gunboats firing the tolling mlnute-gunn.

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. ♦ SPORT THAT KILLS. The raw natives of South Africa have not yet taken up football ami cricket as national sportB. so they still indulge in the Bport of their forefathers.

Altogether, 1,200 "boys" took part, in the sport. Anl, although it consisted principally of runn ing after each other in approved j London school-fight fashion, still, the opposing sides camo to close quar ters on several occasions. They wrrc armed with weighty sticks, and it j speaks well for the thiel n :;s of the native skull when I mention that only one death occurred.

THE WEDDERBURN GARDENS BEAUTY AND DECAY [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916

THE WEDDERBURN GARDENS BEAUTY AND DECAY Within a short distance of the center of Wedderburn, but some what difficult of access through mazes of weeds and miners' shafts, lie the Reservoir Gardens. Al though neither landscape effect or floral beauty can be claimed for the gardens a visit to tliem is full of in terest and pleasure. Just now the first *vuts of Autumn are beginning to show on the deciduous trees — " Unpin yellow, red and orange The leaves come down in hosts, The trees are Indian princes, But soon they'll turn to ghosts." The umbrageous sycamore, the scolloped oak (at present bearing acorns), the elms the poplars, are putting on their autumn livery of gold and red, while the 'evergreens' too, are exhibiting many gradations of delicate opalescent coloring, which is particularly noticeable in the new growth of eucalyptus " Calophylla " or "the beautiful leaf", and in the crimson (lowering gum. The new growth of that in teresting shrub, the Hakea, or pin cushion flower, see...

How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Acids. Few people besides physicians realise the importance of keeping the food contents of the stomach free from acid fermetation. Healthy normal digestion cannot take place while the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and dis tended by acid and wind—the re sults of fermenting food in the stomach. To secure perfect diges tion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid neutra lised. For this purpose physicians usually recommend getting a little bisurated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoon ful in a little hot or cold water im mediately after eating. They re commend bisurated magnesia be cause it is pleasant to take, has no disagreeable after effects, and in stantly stops fermentation, neutra lises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digested. ~ The regular use' of bisurated magnesia—be sure you get the bisurated, as other kinds of mag nesia are of little value—is an ab solute g...

CORRESPONDENCE TOWN LIGHTING TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916

CORRESPONDENCE TOWN LIGHTING TO TBF EDITOR Sir.—In reply to a letter appear ing in your issue of last week, sign ed "Progress" this gentleman has evidently been unfortunate in his choice of an acetylene plant. I am pleased to learn, however, that de spite his woes he still admires the fine light "acetlightl". Now, 1 state emphatically, that with a properly designed machine, manufactured on scientific lines, the trouble is pract ically nill. " Progress's " chief trou ble is that the gas becomes over heated. This is conclusive evidence that it is an obsolete type " water to carbide" that he alludes to, not the modern " carbide to water ". Theo retically there docs not seem much difference between the dripping of water on carbide and the dropping of small lumps of carbide into a ! body of water. In practice, how ever, it is as wide as the poles in results. A simple test by anyone I will paove this statement. Take a half pint tumbler and place within a piece of carbide, allow a little w...

We have our horses again and are made up to full strength. We are enjoying ourselves well and all the boys seem happy; there is plenty of food and nothing to worry about. I was on the peninsula about two months and wc went through some rough experiences, though, at times it was not too bad. We held very little ground and in fact were hiding behind the big hills. The beach was all open to the rough waters of the occan and at times it was impossible to land provisions ; then we had to go on half rations, so you will guess that that was not too pleasant. The bully beef and biscuits was not too nice but at times wc used to get a fair issue of bread and fresh meat, which was quite a treat. We used to have bacon every morning and an issue of jam and milk every day. The biggest drawback of the lot was water. It had to be brought by boats and la...
