In Memoriam. JAMES JOHN BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 8 December 1881

Xn Slemoriam. JAMES JOHN BROWN. Osr Saturday last passed away to his well-earned rest tho founder and (since its commencement) conductor of this journal. Ho died literally in harness, worn out by work — hard, conscientious, constant work, faithfully executed in tho in torosts of this town and district. For over a quarter of a century, in conflict with manv difficulties, through good report and evil report, James John Brown fought loyally, consistently, and persistently, over on tho Liberal side, for popular rights, and against every form of cliqueism and faction. Ho is now doad ! Yes, for James John Brown, tho trusty friond, the kind and considerate employer, tho straightforward, truth-loving, honest man, it is all ended, all, at least, on this side of tho stars — 'All tho hope iind tho fear and sorrow.' He is dead! and Yass is his debtor ! The work he did will speak for him best. He made the Courier a power. Many of those local institutions which are now tho pride of this dis trict...

SODA FOR HEAD-ACHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 8 December 1881

RODA EOE HEAD-A0HB. ii To UBe soda for head-aohe will be making a remarkable leap towards oonfirmed dys pepsia.' It has been in the past a hygienic hobby that Boda wbb injurious to health, even in biaouit, but I hold' that other ingredients did the miBohief and soda got the blame. If you take into your Btomaoh an over-dose ol opiates or any otner aetrunemui euu Btauoe, will you not take something to neutralize it? AaBuredly, yes. So, bIbo for excessive aoidity of the stomach soda is on antidote, neutralizing the aoidity, and so likewise the aoidity neutralizes the soda. I have practised oarrying a Vial of Boda in my pooket for several years for the purpose oi neutralizing the stings of insects, but find ita UBe internally of inestimable value. One-eighth of a teaspoonfnl oan be taken at intorvals of an hour with remarkably good effeot in moBt cases ot head-aohe, pains in the' stomaoh, attaobs of bowel complaint, nausea, etc, eto.

A GOOD EDITOR. A good editor, a oompetent , newspaper conductor is like a general or poet — born, not made. On the London daily paperB all the historians, novelists, poeta, and essay Ibis have been employed, and nearly all have failed. We might say all, for after a display of brilliancy, brief but grand, they died out literally. Their resources were exhausted. . ' I can,' sai- a late editor of the Times to Moore, ' find any number of .men or gemua to write ior us, but very seldom one of common sense.' The ' tbunderers ' in the Times, therefore, have, bo far as we know, been men of common sense. Nearly all successful editors have been men o( this description. Campbell,- Bulwer, and Disraeli failed, Barnes, Sterling, and Phillips Succeeded. A good editor seldom writes for his paper. He reads, judges, selects', diotates, altors, and combines, and to do this well he has but littlo time for oonyoBition.
