A Proud Confession. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 July 1914
A Proud Confession. The other day a young lady boarded a tramcar with a very small lbaby. By and by the conductor came around to collect the fares, and the lady tendered him a half-crown. The conductor looked at her and said, "Is that your smallest?" The lady blushed and said: "Yes, sir; I've only been married a year." So long as health and strength re main, a good dinner and a pretty wo man are the two things a man tires of the least.

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 30 July 1914
SLEEP-ITS VALUE. Sleep,, nature's most potent medi cine! , How it brings peace to the. troubled, rest to .the weary, and roses to the cheeks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till the morrow. But sometimes the moment the head reaches the pillow seems to be the signal for each individual worry apd care to present itself like an aveng ing angel. 'These mighty companions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-biand with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, and dark circles under the eyes that speak more plainly than words." When the system is depleted the physician prescribes a tonic which prevents the further wasting of tis sues, and: creates an appetite, which is -the-foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and fill us with vim for future exertions. As there is no ironclad rule governing the amount of food requi...

He was getting .accustomed to these dramatic epi sudes. Besides, he had nothing to be afraid of. Let him only get. his money and he would not trouble this amazing household again. All the same, there was something exceeding lv striking about this remarkable old man. He might have come straight from a stage setting, so strange was his aspect. He was."Gaspard" and "Shylock" in 0one-tall and lean, and high of fore head from which the leonine grey hair was tossed carelessly back, he had.thin, dark hatchet-like features and eyes that glowed like stars behind his gold-rimmed glasses. His keen, clever face was lined and wrinkled, his skin the color of old parchment. To strengthen the likendss to the classical example of miserliness, he wore a kind of dressing-gown of vel vet, and on his head was a s...

"When I was in Hobart I was taken ill, and got so bad that I went to a hospital, and after staying about three months I returned to Victoria hardly any better than when I first went into the hospital. The origin of my troubles was a chill, caught after taking a hot bath, with the result that I could hardly move, the pains in my back and limbs were so excruciating. I seemed to get no relief from *my treatment. When I arrived in Vic toria I was met by my sister, and was induced by her to try Warner's Safe Cure. After taking four bottles I felt some relief, and, by the time I had taken six more, I was quite well again. From the time of leaving the hospital I took no other remedies of ...
