Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916

SLEEPLESSNESS Sleeplessness frequently arises from the liver. If the liver is out of order it affects the nerves and if your nerves are affected you cannot sleep. Do not resort to narcotics; a course'of Chamberlain's Tablets will set your liver right and you will soon enjoy refreshing sleep. Just because other remedies have failed to relieve you is no reason you should give up hope. Chamberlain's Tablets are relieving obstinate cases every day. Sold by W.

"TO POINT A MORAL AND ADORN A TALE." The lives of many American cit izens were lost through the German and Austrian outrages on the Lusi tania, Arabic, and Persia. An American on Americans (with the plea of the heart atropied crea tures reproached)--"We have lost our prestige." "Everywhere -it is said we are diseased with the itch for money."-Chicago "Daily Herald." ,Well, grant our prestige we've lost (To doubt your dictiumn were but rash) And swapped the tinsel stuff, good fame, For cent per cent in solid cash. ,What then, poor scribbler? We have hearts Yet dare aver, whoever chides These, introduced to Wall Street life Would prove like "feelings" "dangerous guides." This fact will stand, howe'er you sing, Expostulate, plead, storm or pray, A passed out life may be replaced: A dollar missed is missed for aye. We hold it right to win from war Its profits and emolument, Though quite unwise to court_ its pain By playing the belligerent. So we, the path of prudence tread, And with nic...

LUCERNE POOL. To the Editor of the "Argus:" Sir,-Reading that the. Govern ment are likely to formulate a scheme to qpay lucerne-growers on irrigation blocks a sum of about £2 per ton as an advance on the present year's hay, &c., I -would suggest that three to five dairy cows be pur chased for the. owners instead. rThis would have a fourfold.. benefit, at least, iz. :Firstly; tlie nieans of saving the hli? es of more dairy cows, which would this year be bought by the butchers;: secondly; ]roducing more milk,.. hich is much neeled; thirdly, helping to build: up depleted herds by :iearing a .'calf from each cow; fourthly, itarketoing the .hay on the farm .

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 69. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 25 March 1916

B ACCHUS MARSH. -.By W.. WILLIAMS, B.A. No. 69. April 26, 1879.- As the wells in Bacchus Marsh nearly all contained. a layer of decayed wood, some local folk had an idea that the Marsh was in reality a coal bed. Specimens of deposit associated with a mineral, obtained from a well 24 feet deep, were forwarded to the. School of Mines, Ballarat. The following re port was received :--"The mineral appears to consist of woody matter, partly converted into lignite, and sitrongly impregnated with iron py rites, - deosited by ferruginous ".--aters. Similar deposits of pyrites occur in fossil wood found in deep leads of .Ballarat and elsewhere. The :'occurrence is interesting as illustra trative of the natural chemical ac tioni in the comparatively recent de posits of the Bacchus Marsh valley "analogous to the action that has ,taken place in far older deposits." The pipe of Bacchus Marsh was blown out; it was not a coal bed. This i~s the way; in old days, that a medical man was received journ...
