Stomach Medicines are Dangerous. DOCTORS NOW ADVISE MAGNESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 15 January 1916

DOCTORS NOW ADVISE MAGNESIA. Just bow dangerous it is to indiscrimi nately dose the stomach with drugs and medicines is often not realised until too late. Ifc seems so simple to swallow a dose of some special mixture or to take tablets of some so-called remedy or other after meals, and the tolly of this drugging is not apparent until perhaps years after wards. Regrets are then unavailing ; it is in the early stages, when indigestion, dyspepsia, heartburn, flatulence, etc., iudicate excessive acidity of the stomach and fermentation of the food contents, that precaution should be taken. Drugs and medicines are unsuitable and often dangerous—they have as a rule little or no influence upou the harmful acid, and that is why doclors are discarding them and advising sufferers from digestive and stomach trouble to get rid of the danger ous acidaud keep the food contents bland and sweet by taking a litte bisurated magnesia instead. Bisurated magnesia is an approved antacid, which can readily...

By J. Mattliams, Acting Chief Vermin. Inspector. C'imatio conditions very often have an im portant effect. upon tin; work of rabbit de struction. While these conditions often assist n«, as they have in the past year, they :ii.-jo often operate in an entirely opposite < 1 i rcction. The droughty conditions of the last s))ci! 1 tr and summer, which were most suitable for effective poisoning, followed by the copi ous winter rain.-, assisted the work immensely. Full advantage of these conditions was taken by the Department and landholders generally, with the nsnlt that, within the past year, a notable diminution in the number of rabbit3 has taken place throughout the State. The drought, however, was not directly responsi ble for the dentil of many rabbits if any, though it, was a very useful contributing fac tor.

HIS WAR MEDAL. I. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

HIS WAR MEDAL. By J. J. Moran. All that the old man had to show, ostensioiy, tor his valor during the maian Mutiny was his wooden leg. That was a patent, tangible fact, which he could not disguise—otherwise he would have done so, for old Forbes was one of those veterans who dislike talking of the deeds of their soldiering days. A true soldier does not brag, he used to say. But he possessed another reminder o£ that day of blood and slaughter; that far-off day when he had rushed through a hail of bullets to reach his captain who lay wounded on the field, and had carried that otncer ^ bacK to the British ranks, although his own right leg, struck by a piece of shell, had to suffer amputation that day in the held hospital. He received his medal for valor on the field, and that decoration, as well as a wooden leg, accompanied him to his retirement into private life. But he never spoke of it; he hid the medal in the box in his bedroom—stowed it away a.s a pre cious secret, and as too sacre...

fGERMAN OFFICERS' ESCAPE I A THRILLING NARRATIVE. Lieutenants Keilhack and Thelen, the German prisoners of war "who es caped from Donington Hall, Leices tershire, have told the complete story 01 their adventure, and it is now pub lished. No sooner -had they arrived at Don ington Hall than they cast about them for means of escape. The place was loo closely guarded by soldiers and barbed wire entanglements to allow them to make a bolt for liberty. But beneath the hall are many cellars, and although these are sup posed to be locked, Keilhaclc and The len in the course of their prowling secured admittance to two under the old library, on the west side of the building. They calculated that from these cellars it was a bare fifty yards to beyond the barbed wire compound, but there was only one way of get ting there—by burrowing. That was months ago, but that very night they began. After "lights out" each evening an official visit is paid to the prisoners in their dormitories, and from then...

Owing to harvesting opera tions the attendance was not up to the ^sual. Satisfactory, and in some in stances encouraging reports were sub mitted in connection with the state of the various Sunday schools, C.E. Soci eties, and Church work. The roll of Church membership was the same as previous quarter.

GERMANY'S MILITARY IDOL, The son of a country squire shares with Von Hindenburg the idolatry of the German public, for Field-Marshal Auguste von Mackenson, is the second soin of a country gentleman who in tended to make a lawyer of the boy. But soldiering was in the blood of Von Mackensen, and he proved it in the year 1869, when he entered the 2nd Hussar Bodyguards, the favorite cavalry regiment of the Kaiser, to serve his one year of compulsory military service. A year later the Franco-German War broke out, and it was then that Von Mackensen gave proof of his re markable military capacity, being en trusted with several important and highly-perilous missions. And so suc cessfully did he carry these out that before the war was over he was made a colonel of the regiment in which he had been a private. An exciting adventure in the Franco Prussian War occurred when a ser geant of the 2nd Hussars saw his lieutenant, Von Horn, killed in a fight with an ambushed detachment of the enemy. Th...

When the Deaf Hear. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

When the Deaf Hear. It is often said that persons afflict ed with certain forms of deafness can hear perfectly in the midst of a tu mult. A locomotive engineer was found to be very deaf, and, although he protested that he could hear per fectly well while on his engine, he was suspended from duty. Some time afterwards he applied for reinstate ment, again urging the fact of his per fect hearing while on duty. Finally, the physician rode with him upon a locomotive and put him to every pos sible test. To the doctor's surprise he found the man able not only to hear ordinary sounds, but also able to dis tinguish whispers and movements that were inaudible to his companion. A surburban minister, durieg his discourse one Sunday morning, said: "In each blade of grass there is a sermon." A day or two after one of his flock discovered the good man pushing a lawn mower about, and paused to say: "Well, parson, I'm glad to see you engaged in cutting your sermons I short." Son: "Dad, why is a horse...

SEASONABLE POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

SEASONABLE POULTRY NOTES. By December (writes Mr. James Hadlington, poultry expert, the maxi mum egg production has passed, and poultry keepers must expect their yields to decrease from now until June. In consequence, prices for eggs will be on the up-grade, which is sim ply a case of cause and effect. Many hens will go off laying, and others will only lay in an erratic manner, and will very soon fall into moult. This is a matter that should receive the close attention of poultry farm ers with, a view to disposing of the unprofitable hens, and all those that it is not intended to carry through i the moult into next spring should be carefully scrutinised and marketed as they go off laying. It should not be a difficult matter to pick out the hens that have stopped laying, but I find that there is a disposition among beginners, and also many whose ex perience should have taught them j differently, to expect these hens to come on to lay again at an earlier period than they are likely to...

GENERAL KENNA'S V.C. "Father, Bless Me for Death." [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 22 January 1916

GENERAL KENNA'S V.C. "Father,, Bless Me for Death." There will be many to mourn the death in action at the Dardanelles of Brigadier-General Paul Kenna, V.C., for he was one of Britain's best and bravest. The story of how he won his V.C. is one which shows his cour age and devotion to duty. Previous to the Khartoum Expedition of 1898, Major Kenna had suffered a bereave ment which seemed to have shorn life of its interest, and left -him with a lethargy which he could not shake off. When the fatal charge of the 21st Lan cers at Omdurman was in preparation, he went to Bishop Brindle, who was blessing those who were Roman Catho lics, and said, with no sadness, "Fath er, bless me. for death." The great charge was made, during which General—then Major—Kenna valiantly rescued a brother officer. For this he was awarded the Y.C., but what gave his friends almost as much satisfaction was the fact that he came back from the charge a different man. He had shaken off bis gloom for ever. General K...
