"BIG WITH FATE." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
"BIG WITH FATE." All the indications point to the probability of a great battle being fought on Belgium soil within the next few days. Compared witlh what is bound soon to happen, all the-fighting yet described will rank as mere skirmishing. If the Leige forts hold out, the battle will pro bably take place somewhere in the neighfourhood of that city, for the Germans cannot advance far with so strong a fortress in an enemy's possession in their rear. Should Leige fall, the scene will naturally be nearer the Franco-Belgiumn frontier. The engagement, when it comes, is likely to be big witlh fate. If the Germans be defeated, or even if they receive a serious check, their who!e plan of cam paign may crumple un. If, on the other hand, the French and Belgians-who may be re-inforced by a British expeditionary arms' get the worse of it. much will des pend on their ability to bring up sufficient reinforcements to enable them to retrieve their giounds.

THE TERRIBLE BURDEN OF ARMAMENTS. "Review of Reviews." January, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
THE TERRIBLE BURDEN OF ARMAMENTS. -o- H "Review of Reviews." January, 1914. It is not surprising to. find that a very considerable body of radical stalwarts in Great Britain are en deavouring to check in some way the gigantic expenditure on arm.a mnents now demanded of Great Britain. Unfortunately, unless arrangement can be arrived at bet ween the great powers there is no prospect of any reduction.

PRACTICAL PRESCRIPTION AGAINST STOMACH ACIDITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
PRACTICAL PRESCRIPTION AGAINST STOMACH ACIDITY. By a Specialist. "Nine-tenths ot all cases of stomach trouble now-a-days," says a leading specialist, t;-" are caused by too much acid. In the beginn ing, the stomach itself is not disea sed,- but if this .acdid condition is allowed to coritiiiie, the acid is very likely to- eat inito the stomach walls, and produce stomach ulcers or cancer, either of Which may ren der a radical surgical operation necessary, even to prolong life. Therefore an acid stomach stom ach is really a dangerous condition condition, and should be treated seriously. It is utterly useless to take pepsin and ordinary stomach tablets. The excess acid must be neutralised by the administration of an efficient antacid. For this purpose physicians usually recom mend taking halt a teaspoonfulof bisurated magnesia, in a little wa ter after meals. Larger- quanti ties may be used if necessary, as it is absolutely harmless. But be sure to get the bisurated magnesia as other f...

THE WORLD TRUSTS BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
THE WORLD TRUSTS BRITAIN. One fact very gratifying to Bri tish pride is that so many of tihe European powers are willing, and indeed eager, to entrust Great. Britain with a power and prestige which they would on no account be willing to see Germany endowed. Should Germany and Austria be defeated in the war in which they have deliberately involved Europe no result is more certain than that Britain will attain to an al most unexampled position of au thority and renown, yet none ot the lesser powers view the pros pect with' apprehension. German rivalry on the seas will be extin guised for a generaltion at least; and no nation will contribute a re giment or a ship to help her. Evi dently the world trusts Britain and distrusts Germany. It knows that Britain has often been the cham pion of the weaker nations against the stronger nations, that her su premacy on the ocean has opened the seas to the mercantile fleets of the world, that even now her own ports are free to receive the products ...
The Corner Deviation. AGAIN BEFORE THE COUNCIL. OLD ROAD ADOPTED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
The Corner Deviation. t-- . " * :1 AGAIN BEFORE THE COUN CIL. OLD ROAD ADOPTED. The question of a deviation of the Traralgon South road through Mr. Widdis' land, was again before the local shire council on Wednes day, and was finally dealt with. A petition signed by 201 rate payers against the deviation, and another one with 76 signatures in favor of it, were presented. Councillor Bodycomb said he was now satisfied that he could vote on the question without rendering himself liable in any way. The president said that the mat ter had been before the council for some time, and it was time it was settled. Councillor Anderson said that he could not support the deviation. Councillor Clarke said that the opponents of the 'deviation did not see how the engineer had arrived at his estimate of the cost of the two roads, and the small difference in the cost. Mr. Sambell said that it was a question of quantities. Both of the roads had been surveyed, plans provided, and quantities taken out. He...
Patriotic Fund. TRARALGON RESPONDS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
Patriotic Fund. -0 TRARALGON RESPONDS At the meeting of the Traralgon Shire Council on Wednesday, Cr. Whittakers, president of the shire, invited councillors attention to the circular letter issued by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, in connection vith the raising;o'df a patriotic fundl They were all acquainted with the facts, and there 'vas no need for him to enlarge on the question. The present state of affairs was without parallel in the history of the Empire. Several 'people had spoken to him on the matter and suggested that a public meeting be called, olr a: subscription list opened. He (the president) was sure that every one-man, woman and child-was ready to do some thing to help ii this crisis. Cr. Pettit said he was glad the president had brought the matter forward. He had it in his mind to mention, it, though he had not spoken-to anyone, nor had anyone spoken to him. As a Britisher, and a patriot, he felt that steps should be taken to raise funds locally. Without going into hig...

LATEST WAR NEWS. TERRIFIC BATTLE. IMMINENT. OFFICIAL ANNOUNE.\lENT The B3ritish Press BIureau, at the head of which the government hasr placed Mr. F. E. Smith, M.P., is sued the following statement on Tuesday evening: At this periud of hostilities, no news of importance can be expec ted; no movements of the lBritislh army, or of our allies, can be di vulged; and over the procccdings ot the enemy lies the fog of war. There is good reason to beli\eve that the mass of Germans is distri buted between Thoinville (Lor raine), and Liege, while the terri tory of Lorraine is being held b1 a comparativecly light force. There is every reason to believe that the Austrian troops have en tered Alsace. It is believed that the forts at Liege are still held by the Ger mans. Thursday.

MAINTAINING OUR TRADE. A HOPEFUL OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
MAINTAINING OUR TRADE. A IHOPEFUL OUTLIOOK. Every effort is being made by Melbourne merchants to hnaintain business upon lines as close to the normal a spossible. The gen:ral feeling among them is of cheerful ness and optimism. They are, of course, experiencing difficulties and inconveniences, but they appear to realise that the public interest and patriotism demand that at a time like this they shall do all in their power to minimise public discom fort, and sustain the commerce of the country. A number of the lea ding merchants of 'Meclbourne ex pressed their views on this phase of the war crisis w'hen interviewcd "Speaking as a commercial man," said Mr. A. H. Sargood, of Sar good Bros., " I think that the real crisis developed last week, before the declaration of war. Every body was then at high tension, but as soon as war was definitely dec lared the tension was relieved, and the time of crisis passed. In re gard to trade and commerce, there is little reason why Australia should ...

THE WAY TO HELP TROOPS. MISTAKES TO BE AVOIDED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 14 August 1914
THE WAY TO HELP TROOPS. - - MISTAKES TO BE AVOIDED. Lady Helen Munro Ferguson conferred on Wednesday with Sis- ter Rawson, Mrs. J. O. Ferrell, of 25 George street, Melbourne, with regard to the articles likely to be most useful to troops on active ser- vice. Sister Rawson was selected by the Imperial Government as lady superintendent of the Victorian nurses for the South African war. She had charge of the nurses. For distinguished service in that campaign she holds the Royal Red Cross, which corresponds with the Victorian Cross. She is a life member of the Royal British As- sociation of Nurses, and also wears the badge of the Leicester Infirm- ary Nursing League. Nurse Rawson thoroughly ap- preciates relative value of all clas- ses of gifts for the troops For instance, she does not set much value of knitted socks. "They are not universally worn,': said Sister Rawson, "and men, es pecially Australian men, would pre fer cashmere socks A Scotchman who is used to wearing knitted socks f...
