Then Silence Reigned. He was glib o£ speech and . : good-1 looking, and when' did ? these ever fail to .win . when the winning was a woman? The. girl loved him..with, that foolish infatuation that passeth understand ing. The young man didn't do any thing. He. simply appeared on the scene.: It; was .ever thus, wasn't it? In time stories came to her ears, and she told him how she disbelieved every one of them. They said he wouldn't pay his debts; but she knew better, for had she not divided her. allowance with him for this purpose? "It is-enough," he told her one day simply, "if you trust me." "I do, Reginald-I do, I do!" she | murmured, as he enfolded her. "I do - do, do, DO! I will ailways trust you!"

CHAPTER V. It was late when. Lady/Eileen return ed from the party, and she came in looking pale and depressed, as Daphne rose from!, the low chair on which she had been waiting for her. "It was a wretched evening!" she said, throwing her gloves and fan from her on the bed, and then walking up to the dressing table, where the maid began deftly to unkook her dress. "It i only shows, Daphne, how absurd it is to look forward to anything in: this world. He was. there-oh! you know who I mean well enough-Lord Barn staple. It's no good looking shocked, Daphne, I will speak. He was there, as I said, but he might just as well have been a thousand miles off, tor all tire good he was to me. The whole evening he devoted himself to some horrible married woman, and when he looked at me, it was If-as If he loath ed me " She covered her face with her hands, and her slender body shook with a tempest of feeling.

Timber for Shire Bridges. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 20 July 1917

Timber for Shire Bridges. { AT the monthly meeting of Bright Shire Council last week Cr Roper mentioned that the contractors for a bridge at Tawi.nga were paying 1/6 a foot for limber as royalty. He thought it unfair that the Council should be charged for timber used for traffic and, on his motion, it was decided that a protest be made to the Municipal Association. Every Shire Council and country ratepayer should be in strong sympathy with Bright Shire Council in this protest. 1/6 per foot sounds an exorbitant royalty on timber, even for use in the manufacture of high class furniture, and for bridge timber is simply absurd But it is not the very apex of absurdity to take money out of one pocket to place it in another in this way. The timber in the forests of Victoria is the property of the people 01' I he whole State and it will come as a shock to most people that municipal councils are not permitted to hew what they actually require for municipal purposes without any charge whateve...

Stop Stomach Drugging. NEUTRALISE THE DANGEROUS ACID WITH A LITTLE MAGNESIA [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

Stop Stomach Drugging. NEUTRALISE THE DANGEROUS ACID WITH A LITTLE MAGNESIA STOMACH drugging is dangerous. Drugs de.vlen the nerves and render them in sensible to pain, but pain serves a good purpose-it is nature's method of indica ting that something is interfering with the smnoth working of the human organism. When the fault is corrected, the pain will cease. Pain after eating-heartburn, flatulence, etc , etc , usually inbicates not that the stomach is diseased, but that it is troubled by excessive acidity. The acid irritates and inflames th£ delicate lining of the stomach and so cause pain. Obvious ly it is of prime importance that the cause of this pain should be removed, and to accomplish this you should obtain some bisuratfd magnesia from your chemist and take half a teaspoonful in a little water immediately after meals. This will in stantly neutralise the.harmful acid in your stomach and prevent all possibility of food fermentation. Drugs do not over come this ac'd-they simpl...

TO TITE EDITOR SIR,-At the recent conference on Iho eradication of St. John's wort, held in Melbourne, one of the questions that came up for discussion was the matter of l:ind settlement in the Bright district. It was pointed out that the various departments fn overlapped each other that the method of selecting land waB so hampered that intending settlers became tdck of the idea before tinality was reached. The execu tive urged that the government should give free grants of land, in any quantity deBired, and aid the selectors in becoming producers This it was claimed would eventually mean that every acre so culti vated and turned to account would have a boneficial effect on the weed, principally by reducing the area infested.
