TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. | Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her heart was filled with longing to be out, if only , for a few fleeting minutes, in the sun- i shine that kisB.ed the street. I "Could you manage, ma'am," she ' venturer goaded into rebellion at last, 1 "could you possibly manage to release me for a second or two?" j "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex- ' claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver TwiBt asked for more. ' "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. I wouldn't I dawdle, really, I wouldn't. It is the people passing and re-passing the win- ! flow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I " ; Her voice trembled tearfully into si- | lence, but on the face of the female '■ despot a saintly light appeared. j "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have ! been too hard on you," she Baid softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"—she paused, and a c...

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. It may be (observes the "Lancet") that. some enthusiastic and laborious German statistician has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the question of length of life and its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if bo, we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy iife—cheerful people—are also those to whom long-, est life Is given, tjommonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence, "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can-, not make himself so. 'Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary iburden to his relatives, miser able through-the carking care of eomfe bodily, ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, ...

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A -wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeitung," of Winterthur, In Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed, to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.

YOUNG IMMIGRANTS. 500 LADS FOR THE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

YOUNG IMMIGRANTS. } • i I 500 LADS FOR THE FARMS. By the s.8. Indrapura, which is expected to reach Melbourne on May 27, another. Bfirtjr of 500 lads who will be available for work on farms or stations, or in other suitable country employ ment are coming to Victoria from Great Britain, and farmers desirous of obtaining their ser vices are requested to make early application-to the Immigration and Labor Bureau, 555 Flinders street, Melbourne. Over 400 of these lads arrived during the month of April and their servises were quickly availed of by farm ers, many of whom have since coftimunica'ted with the Immi gration department expressing satisfaction with the lads. Ex tracts from about 50 letters from farmers received at the Immi gration Bureau in the course of two or three days have been for warded to this office and they afford very clear indication that on the whole the lads are proving to be of a very desirable stamp.

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South Austra lian Government offered a prize. for the invention of a stone-gatherlui? machine to be used on some of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. The first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, but the two or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The H&rdwareman"} that two Australians have invented &n im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. Tlie rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, whieh pIckB up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial...

MELBOURNE ORPHAN ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

MELBOURNE ORPHAN ASYLUM. Sir,— Miss Triller, one of tho collec tors for the Melbourne Orphan Asylum, is again visiting Shep parton on her annual canvass for subscriptions in. aid of the institution. It does not seem to be generally known that besides receiving orphan children into residence at the Cottage Homes at Brighton, the Institution also contributes towards the main tenance of a large number of children who live with their widowed mothers in their own homes under the supervision of local correspondents. The amount paid to these widows last year was nearly £2000. Sev eral, families are being helped in this way and only this morning a very deserving case was submit ted by Mrs M'lver, our represen tative in your town. Besides this there are a good many children from Shepparton in residence here. If you will kindly give pub licity to this it may stimulate tho good people of your district to greater liberality, though their response to previous appeals has always been most praisew...

WHY YOUR STOMACH HURTS. A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 14 May 1914

WHY YOUR STOMACH HURTS. A-DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE. ; Pain in the stomach various ly called indigestion, dyspepsia, flatulence, heartburn, stomach ache, etc., is usually attributed to some unnatural abnormal or diseased condition of the stom ach itself. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Nineteen times out of twenty the stomach is absoutely. healthy and normal, the pain and dis comfort being entirely due to the acidity and fermentation of food which irritates and distends the stomach; although if this condition is allowed to run on, in time the constant irritation of the acid is likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce ul cers and sometimes cancer of the stomach. Medicine is uesless in such a cgise. The acid and fermenting food mustberemoved by a stomach puftip or an emetic or you must neutralise the acid ana stop the fermentation by taking half a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little water. This latter is by far the simpler and safer method. Bia ...
