Workmen's Compensation Act. THE Gundagai "Independent" sees great possibilities in the new Workmen's Com pensation Act, which comes into force in July. Thepaper pronounces it a "real corker'1 and says a man will hardly know where he is when it gets going. Really, everybody becomes an empoyer. Suppose you send a box of chocolates to your best girl, and you get a school boy to act for ynu. If that boy is attacked by micc whilst on the job, and incapacitated, he can sue you for damages. Or,' suppose you employ Harry Jack to cut you a load of wood. A chip strikes Jack in the eye, and permanently injures his sight, you will be liable to pay him weekly half the wages you were giving him for wood cutting. Going further. Say you give a girl half-a-crown to run out and buy you a pound of sausages, and an elephaut kills her, or she is struck dead by a bolting horse. You will he liable to pay up at least £3000 Thank he'iven the fat headed legislators who made this law have left us the Insolven...

If Stomach Hurts Drink Hot Water. A SPECIALIST'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

If Stomach Hurts Drink Hot Water. A SPECIALIST'S ADVICE. " If dyspeptics, sufferers from flatulence, indigestion, acidity, gastric catarrh, etc., would only take a quarter teaspoonful of Irian ratal magnesia in half a glass of hot water immediately after eating, they would soon forget that they were ever afflicted with stomach trouble, nnd.doctois would have to look elsewhere for patients.'' On explanation of these words the specia list stated that most forms of stomach trouble were due to acidity and ferment ation of the food contents combined with insufficient blood supply to the stomach, Hot water increases the blood supply and blsiirttlrd magnesia instantly neutral iscs the acid and stops food fermentation ; the combination of the two, therefore, | being very efficient and infinitely pre ! ferable to the use of artifical digestives, I stimulants and medicines.
