Next to the Doctor COMES THE Nurses' Opinion. A TESTIMONY TO CLEMENTS TONIC f Buckinaham Aveaue. Coburg, Vic., 314/12. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. " I know Clements- Tonic w: used extensively by the profession, and nurses know its value and are seldom without it. Once a patient got very weak and low spirited, and I gave her Clements Tonic.

Sunday Corner. Use Your One Talent. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
Sunday Corner. Use Your One Talent. Use your one talent for God's glory, and he will give you more to use. Do the little duties faith fully, and you will grow in skill and ability and be able for greater. No duties are small or unimpor tant. There are many who grow discouraged because they are kept all their life at little tasks. Men praise grand and heroic deeds, and little notice is taken of the common heroisms of daily duty. But you remember what one said-that if God sent two angels to earth, one to rule an empire and the other to clean a street, they would each regard their employment as equally distinguished. True faithfulness regards nothing as small or unim portant.

AT THE CRAVESIDE Of. Ten British Soldiers.

A MONK'S FORECAST A Remarkable Prophecy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
A MONK'S FORUEAST KA Remarkable Prophecy. Many prophecies have been 'made in regard to the present world-wide conflict, but none have equalled the remarkable forecast made by Frater Johannes, a monk, who lived and wrote in the 16th century. In deciphering the allegory it has to be remembered that France is represented by a cock, England by a leopard, Russia by a white eagle, Germany by a black eagle, Austria by the 'other eagle.' The lamb stands for justice, mercy and truth.' The prophecy is divided into 34 paragraphs, or 'items,' as fol lowsi 1. Several times has one seemed to recognise him, because all the slayers of the'lamb resethble each other, and all the wicked. are the precursors of the great Wicked One. 2. The veritable anti-Christ will be one of the monarchs of his time, a son of Luther. He will invoke God and call himself His mes senger. 3. The prince of lies will swear by the Bible. He will call himself the Arm of the Most High, chastis ing corrupted people. 4. He will h...

THE necessity of a Progress Asso ciation for Queenscliff is greatly felt. There' are many, improve ments for the good of- the town' which might be made, and which can only be dealt with by a Pro gress Association. A number of years ago such an Association existed here. The members strove ardently for the welfare of the town, and there is evidence in different parts of the work done by them Since then, the par ticular 'work of improvement has been relegated to the Council, which has done very well, buit neither.funds nor function provide. the scope desired. It only requires a few enterprising spirits, with the townspeople behind them, and a deal might. be done fqr the. further improvement of Queenseliff and 'Point.. Lonsdale. We are sadly behindhand in minor matters, which would lend to the general comfort and pleasure of the visiting public, and these should be attended to if we expect to maintain our status among seaside resorts. THERE is published by us to-day a most extraordinary...
NAVY FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
NAVY FASHION. Some of the officers and men of a vessel anchored in the harblour of Funchal, Madeira, went ashore for a horseback ride round the island. About half way up the mountain two.officers encountered a foretopman evidently very warm, &lt;riding a spirit ed little horse, which had a stone tied up in a silk handkerchief slung to its tail. "What are you doing with that handkerchief, Brown ?" asked the lieutenant. "Why, you see, sir," said Brown, "that when I first hitched her up she pitched badly, being too much by the head so I just rigged this stone on sft and brought her down to her bearings, and now she sails like a clipper !" am |m -mm m

A. N . (From Press Correspondent). The iieeting of the 1st inst. was adjourned owing to the .holiday, and will be held on' Monday even ing next, at the usual hour. Members are reminded -that on the following Monday, Feb. 15th, the quarterly summoned meeting will. be; held.

THE FARM. GROWING COWPEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
THE FARM. GTROWING OOWPEAS. The cowpea is a plant that is not sufficiently appreciated. Its value as a soil renovator, as a green 'manure crop, as a catch crop, as a pasture and'as a regular hay crop, gives it a place in agriculture which warrants its wide acceptance to our farmers. Its wide adoption to the soils and to the climatic conditions common to this State make it a crop that can readily be grown in practically every part of the State, and there is little doubt that its use is destined to a great increase, due to the constantly increasing prices of farm lands with out a corresponding increase in pro duction. There are, however, some import ant reasons why the cowpea has not taken as important a place in agri culture as it deserves. Among these are the high cost of seed and the dif ficulty in curing the hay. The gradual introduction of cowpea hullers that can separate the peas from. the vine without cracking them will undouht edly overcome the first of these diffi culties whi...

A YANKEE IN A HURRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 6 February 1915
A YANKEE IN A HURRY. An. amusing incident occurred at Charing Cross Station in Ascot week. An American drew up at the station in a taxi, and, jumping out before the cab had hardly stopped, started to haul down his luggage. Noticing a porter standing by, he called out to him : "Come along, man, and take my luggage. What time is the next train to Ascot ?" "Oh, you've come to the wrong station, sir," said the porter, with a smile. "You want Waterloo." "Then fetch me a taxi at once, and don't stand there like an idiot," the now-excited Yankee exclaimed. The taxi duly arrived, but by that time the American had worked him self into a towering rage, and. roared at the driver : "Waterloo, as fast as the devil !" "The station, sir ?" quietly asked the unperturbed driver - a remark which put the finishing cap on the American's temper. "No, you tarnation fool ! " he screamed ; "the battlefield !" A famous Cornish lifeboat, . after years of service, has been converted into a dwelling, and is to...
THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 February 1915
THE SPOONERISMS OF Dr. SPOONER. There is probably no more famous man at Oxford than Dr. Spooner, the Warden of New College, and his fame thoughpeculiar, is likely to be last. ing, for he has added to the gaiety of our nation by inventing a new form of humour, the picturesque cransportation of initial syllables. It is said that he owed the inspiration to his first nurse; but it wvas not till be became an Oxford don, and b:andly announced at divine service that the hymn would be "Kinquering Songs their tatles tike" that his pecur!i'ar genius found full recognition. and "Spocnerisms" gave a new facet "o humo r.

THE BLIGHT OF ISLAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 13 February 1915
THE BLIGHT OF ISLAR1. " (By a Banker) The country on which is concene trated the supremest regard of all Christendom, far sutrpassing in interest and fascination any other place in the whole world-the Holy Land-- owing to the blighting effects'of the effete rule of the Turk, in rough weather is practically shut out and isolated from the world. For the absence of any harbour, which any civilised power, even the most unimportant, would long ago have provided, renders landing al together impracticable except in fairly moderate weather. And even then a landing at Jaffa (formerly Joppa) is an experience frequently, though happily not al ways, the reverse of agreeable. The steamer anchors some distance from the town and is soon sur rounded by Arab boats, one of which approaches the lowered stair gangway as near as practicable. The passenger then decends the stairway and seats himself, or her self-and woe be to her if she be stout and heavy-on small grating at foot, his dangling over the s...
