SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 4 February 1914

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. Tho precautions against train wreck? I set forth by Major Pringle in his re port on the Aiseiil catastrophe, and his suggestions for minimising loss of life in any future accident, were ensured in advance of careful and critical public examination. Mr J. F. Galrns, of tho "Railway Magazine," said yesterday (says the "Dally News" of November 27) that thcro waa a growing tendency to use steel underframes, and a considerable proportion of tho rolling stock of the Important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were already used on tho District to somo extent, and wero receiving the attention of railway managers throughout the country. In America they were in much moro general use, and further introduc tion here is probable. Of course, ho said, the forco of a col lision has to be distributed somehow. If tho carriages mount the framo the superstructure takes the forco, but if the framo itself has to stand all the shock, tho effect...

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 4 February 1914

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OP ACTORS The discussion of the question of tho treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable In terest among our readers, with the re sult that tho contents of our letter-bag havo been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel J. 6. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify, to the fact that the most horrible tor tures In very many Instances aro in flicted upon performing animals. Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir tho pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fail to ralso an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It is necessary for the public to bo convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quoto his own words, "tho infernal master a...

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 4 February 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever seen an officer In uniform going in or out of the War Office (except on the occasion of a roynl function in London), or a Housohold Cavalry man walking about the streecs in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni form, the odds are that the War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you visit a friend in the French War Office, you will And him up to the chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers in the place are in uniform. It is the same in Berlin. In our own War Office (says the "Dally Express") no officer wears uni form, and it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment in Lon don puts his uniform on once a mon^h He is in his office every day, but lie wears his own privato clothes, and the only occasion on w...

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contractcd about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. 1 suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re medies without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I; was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years."
