They speak lightly of it "I think I have a touch of indigestion," they say; "poor Mrs. So-land-So hais some trouble with her stomach." "A touch " or "some trouble," for sooth I When . people use these phrases somebody is near the dan ger lize. Of all the ills' that af flict humanity none causes such an ocean of. misery. as Indigestion. Mrs. E. Davies realised this to the full, as so many others have done, through painful experience. Read her story and you will understand ivhy she regards the pufihase of her first bottle of Mother Seigel's Syrup as "the best investment I ever made." Here it is: "5 Woides Avenue, Hurstville, N.S.W. "For a long and dismal period, ~iich was the unhappiest time of my life, I was a disconsolate unit iff the'great army of confirmed Dyspep tics.

GENERAL WAR NEWS London, Feb. 11. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

CEfEsAt WAR NEWS London, Feb. 11. The newspapers consider, that from a German point of view, the first week of submarine frightfulness has been distinetl y disappointing in view of Germany's proclaimed object of starving Eng'.and. British small vessels constitute a large proportion of the victims, and it is unpossible to stop Britain's overseas trade ln less the submarines' record greatly improves. Torpedoings, however, are likely soon to decrease, as the Admiralty's anti-submarine tactics are improved-and extended. The merchant service: is quite uw?ismyey.. ed by torpedoes, and sailors are readily signing on for new voyages. Amsterdam, Feb. 11. Germany has promised the Dutch Government that she will pay full compensation if it is proved that the Dutch steamer Gamma was torpe doed. New York, Feb. 11. The American Consul at Queens town reports that the- British-India liner Mantola, was torpedoed with out warning- 82.miles south-west -of' Fastnet. She carried a crew of 165 and 109 pas...

OUR SUGAR SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

OUR SUGAR SUPPLY., The war is converting not a few articles of general consumption, I once regarded as luxuries, but for many years past classed as necesi-, tier, back into expensive non-essen tials. We have "war prices" for all sorts and conditions of food and grcceries, but what perhaps, is moaot widely and- generally felt, is scarcity I S-sugar, in Britain, where the i Continental upl yot the beet sacc harine product i a 6ati~att tirely cut off, sugar scarcity has risen almost to the rank of a famine. The Foodl Controller has prohibited the use of sugar in certain classes of confec tionery, and has appointed some 20 inspectore to tour the country, and arrange for an equitable distribu tio:n of what sugar is available. The German submarine "ruthless" cam paign will, of course, accentuate the scarcity and the huge prices.

NORSEMAN Norseman, Feb. 9. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

N 4lSEMANI Norseman, Feb. 9. Over-crowded Trains. Since the reduction of the train service to one train per week, the seating accommodation has fre quently been severely taxed, and the last two trains, both inward and outward, were very much over crowded. Yesterday's inward train contained between 45 and 50 passen gers, who were packed into five compartments, and as the day was very hot their journey was by no means a pleasant one. To-day's outward train contained quite 45, probably 50, passengers, including a large number of women and chil dren, who were availing themselves of the summer excursion rates to visit the coast. Some of the see onid-class passengers had to travel in the guard's van.- It certainly ap pears to be the. duty of the depart -ment to make better provision for the travelling public, by the employ ment of an additional carriage, and it is to be hoped that the present condition of affairs will not be long continued.

There is a bill now, before the State Parliament to author? the issue: of Treasury bonds or inscribed stock, to provide for the deficiency of the Consolidated Reveaue Fund Up to 30th June, 1916. In other Words, the purpose of the bill is to fund the deficit of the late Govern ment. There is a general agreement amongst all political parties in the State Parliament, that so far as the defioit accumulated up to the end of the last financial year is concerned, there is no hope of such a large' de" ficiency being wiped out, either by economy or increase in revenue or by a comibination of both remedies. Mr. Soaddan. oontends that the, de ficit of. his Government was caused by circumstances that he had 'not, and could not, have- foreseen-two droughts and the war.
