THE CRESWICK ADVERTISER ESTABLISHED 1858, TuiiSDAY, J USE 9, 191.1 Mr I. Drysdale Brown, our member in the Legislative Council, had a busy day in this portion of his constituency on Saturday last.

Arriving in Ballarat on Friday evening, Mr Brown motored to Creswick on Saturday morning, where he picked up Sir Alexander Peacock, afterwards Koing on to Allendale, where requests (or boring operations were made, and to the gratification of the residents there they were granted. In the afternoon Mr Brown was interviewed by the members of the Creswick Borough Council, who desired portion of the forest reservation to the south ol the town revoked, in order that the land could be settled upon and usjd for fruit growing instead of for raising almost useless timber.

NO rnOHE INDIGESTION. WONDEKS ACHIEVED 1!Y NEW product. It seems reasonable to suppose that in a short time ihurc will lie no more indigestion or dyspepsia. The old style " digestives " such as bismuth, pepsme, charcoal, soda, etc., which alter all are only temporary in their effects, .are rapidly becoming discarded in favor ol a simple antacid, known to chemists as hi*uratt<l magnesia, with the result that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that, according to avail able statistics, over ninety per cent, of all stomach troubles are due to acidity, liisuraled magnesia may readily be obtained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a teaspuonl'il talten in a little water after meals will immedi ately neutralise all harmful acids in the stomach, prevent fermentation, and thus reader the food easy of digestion.

FRUIT GROWING LAND. IN FOREST RESERVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 9 June 1914

FRUIT GROWING LAND, & IN FOREST RESERVATION. The Creswick Borough Council has, at the instance of Cr McPhcc, re quested that portiou of the State forest reservation to the south of the town be revoked, and the land thrown open for closer settlement, the principal object being the planting of orchards. Diffi culties hnve to be overcome before the request can be complied with, such as the opposition of lorest officers. As a metropolitan journal remarks, "Fruit cultivation presents a phase of closer settlement which, up to the present, has not. been fully demonstrated. Vic toria is eminently adapted for the cultivation of (ruit crops Experts state ihnt apples and pears may be grown successfully in almost any part ol the State"; vet only one acre out of every 950 is planted with fruit trees. . . .

CLUNES MUSICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 9 June 1914

CLUNES MUSICAL SOCIETY. Some lime ago the district school committees combined with a view to providing a suitable awitumiug basiu for teaching the school children to swim. The matter was well taken up, and support given by the general pub lic. It was agreed that the basin be formed at the Black Load darn—a most suitable place—and work was undertaken here, the basin for learners being formed. There is yet much to be done, for which funds were required, such as the building of a changing house, etc. The question of a concert was mooted, and the secretary (Mr R. II. Down) approached the Clunes Musical Socicty with the view of getting a concert parly from their members to give a performance here in aid of the swimming ba:in.

ESTABLISHING NEW SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 9 June 1914

ESTABLISHING NEW SCHOOLS. The State Ministry is expending ^500,000 in three years for the pur pose of establishing new schools and erecting newbuildings ; but it holds that its expenditure must be sup ported lanv iy by lncril contributions. Consequently the Minister of Educa tion expressed sonic resentment at the terms in which the claims of Ballarat (or the establishment of a school of domestic ecoromy were put in a report to the council. The report stated that equal opportunities with those afforded in Melbourne should be enjoyed by Rallarat. The Minister remarked that the ad vantages which lial'arat enjoyed were apparently overlooked. The Kducation department had recently npent large sums in the furtherance of education at that centre. That very day tlu Premier would open the new ait saho'il at the school of mines. A little time ago a substantial high school was erected, and in the near future there would be a building for a junior technical school. He would asl; in all such case...

On I'riday morning last Sir Ronald Munro-Ferguson, the Cover nor-General, granted the request for a double dissolution, which came as a great surprise to many, particularly the Labor party, but if it will end the most unsatisfactory position of affairs in the Federal Parliament,.then it will be a great blessing to the people of the Commonwealth. The Liberal Go vernment had a majority of one—the Speaker—in the House of Ri-presenta. tives, but in the Senate were in a hopeless minority, Therefore it meant that the Government had absolutely no possibility of putting their pro gramme through both Houses without its ...
