ALADDIN AND THE GENIE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

ALADDIN AND THE GENIE. Thoro aro few children, and perhaps fewor adults, who have not been deeply interested in the enchanting story of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp. If they have not actually read the story in the Arabian Nights, they have seen the plot enacted at the Christmas Pan tomime. Many a time wo have wished that wo had this Lamp, if only for a few moments, so that wo might com mand its Genie to bring us just what wo. wished for. Something, in short, that .would brighten up our homes, our per sonal appearance, and our lives. How few,, on the other hand, realise that the Genie spirit is really a Jiving spirit within ourselves called by the world; Genius. How few understand that there is the evil as well as the good Genie. Some day the world will realise that Genius commands all human skill, .whether it bo in Music or Noise, Fight . ing or Cowardice, Truth or . Fiction, Honesty or Cheating. When this is un derstood, it will be seen that Genius is not so uncommon, as wo aro l...

I did so, and whilst at home, he found a pamphlet about "Warner's Safe Cure, and decided to try it. I got him a bottle and he commenced to take it. He was passing blood in his urine and his urine was full of aliiumen and sugar. The doctors said that he had a stone In the kid neys and that that was the cause of the bleeding. However, he subse quently had X-ray treatment, and it was found that there was no stone there at all. I give Warner's Safe Cure the sole credit of effecting his I cure.

DISTRICT NEWS. HARRI ETVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] HARRI ETVILLE A MEETING of landholders was held at the Star Hotel on Saturday evening. There was a good attendance, and Mr F. Barker was voted to the chair. He and other speakers briefly referred to the re sults of the late flood and its connection with dredging. The results were well known to those present, the chairman said, to call for much reference, as they were all sufferers to more or less extent. It was undeniable that the dredging of the river bed was responsible for much of the damage caused by the flood, as through the silting up of the channel of the river wiih dredge tailings the water was diverted out of its course, flooding their properties and injuring the main roads. After their experience it was obvious that any further dredging of the river would add a still greater menace to landowners down the stream, and it was a duty they owed to themselves and the interests of those lower down the river to prevent any further interfer...

STRANGE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

STRANGE FLOODS. . A few years ago, in New Orleans, many huge tanks of treacle burst, and the sticky flood swept all' over the low-lying portions of the city. Hun dreds of people narrowly escared drowning, and others had to he fished out of basements, where they were half-buried in the treacle. In London- once a flood of beer broke loose from a brewery, and 9000 gal lons rushed headlong down the street, drowning niany people. In Glasgow, in 1906, over '100,000 gallons of whisky flowed through the streets, wrecking buildings and en gulfing men and horses. The year 1892 was famous in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., for the terrible 'scenes caused by an oil flood. So much o£ this liquid burst bounds that great damage was done to the city, and between three and four hundred people were drowned in the oil.
