ABORIGINES AS ALLIES. VALUE IN WAR SEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
ABORIGINES AS ALLIES. IV . VALUE IN WAR SEEN. Major W. O. Mansbridge, S.j\h Infantry, in the " Commonwcallli Military Magazine," suggests that the aborigines of the North could lie trained, so as to he of service in time of war. " Approximately there are 50,000 aboriginal natives in the northern portion of the Commonwealth," he writes, " and one so often hears the question—What can we do for them or •with them ? I have a remedy, which would not only be beneficial to the individual native, but make him also of some use to the country, as at present he has not any object in life save that of wandering aimlessly around his own particular territory, and this is un doubtedly a wilful waste of human energy. Therefore, why not turn it into our own channels and make them useful, firstly, by providing the male member with instructions in the use of arms; secondly, by engaging the women lolk in one or more of the dormant Industries indigenous to the soil ?

A HOME-MADE HAIR GROWER, THAT DOES MARVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
A HOME-MADE HAIR GHOWER, * THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last few years announce ments have appeared occasionally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have obtained such re markable results. One lady writes that immediately after reading the formula, she went to her chemist and had him put up as directed, r ounce of Lavona de Composee, j dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum. She took this home and although her hair had been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the hair stopped immediately and the hair itself began to grow in an amaz ing manner. In fact, she states that it has already grown nearly 8 inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier and more luxuriant than ever and is still growing. She rubbed the tonic into the roois twice a da...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE SOCIAL PROBLEM. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. j. THE SOCIAL PROBLEM. To the Editor. Sir,—The tone of " Reason's " letter suggests that he possesses the last grain of conimonscuse, bul no more. He, or she, is suiprised at the prevail ing industrial unrest. Let Sir William Lever answer him:—"I rcjoicc in what is callcd labor unrest. I do not think anything will prevent dissatisfaction. I think when a man is satisfied he has arrived at that point when he is going to go backwards. Labor unrest is a healthy sign of the times. I use the word ' dissatisfaction' not in the sense of grumbling, but aj meaning a deter mination to climb higher. " Labor docs get about one.third of what It produces, and I am glad that "Rea sod " does not attempt to deny it. As labor produces all, labor is entitled to all. Adam Smith's words are to the effect that as the laborer produces the wealth of the world, the laborer should enjoy it all. Profit sharing is grand for the capitalist. The chief writer on this topic admits that the manufactu...

Mr Fitzpatrick, one of the Railway Commissioners, who recently visited Europe and the United Stales to study the latest developments of the trans port system, has just presented his report to the Minister Amongst the many matters which Mr I'ltzpatrick studied was the marketing of wheat. He formed the opinion that the elevator melhod, which prevails m the United Stales and Canada, is vastly superior to the out of date bag system which survives 'n Australia.

MININC NEWS. BORING OPERATIONS AT SPRING HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
MININC NEWS. • * BORING OPERATIONS AT SPRING HILL. The diamond drill at. Ullina is being dismantled and removed lo Spring Ilill, to bore /or some of the alluvial leads in that locality. The site chosen for the first bore is on the main road from Creswicli to Kingston, near Mr I1'. \V. Everard's orchard. It has not been fully explained what the Depart ment of Mines have as their main objective by undertaking this line of bores, but there is an impression that it. was due to alluvial channels of this character that payable gold was first found on the Allendale reservoir reserve, which later on gave rise to the eastern system of the Berry leads. It is, however, satisfactory Lhat the de partment is directing public attention to the possibilities of mining in this vicinity. South Berry—All material from bot tom level been sent to surface. Seven parties crosscutting on top level, in rather poor dirt. Gold, n days, 136 oz 8 dwt.
