PRACTICAL PRESCRIPTION AGAINST STOMACH ACIDITY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

PRACTICAL PRESCRIPTION AGAINST STOMACH ACIDITY. BY A SPECIALIST. "Nine-tenths of all cases of stomach trouble nowadays," says a leading specialist, " are caused by too much acid.. In the beginning the stomach itself is not diseased, bnt if this acid condition is allowed to continue, the acid is very likely to eat into the stomaoh walls and produce stomach ulcer or can cer, either of which may render a radical surgical operation necessary, even to prolong life. Therefore an 4 acid stom ach ' is really a dangerous condition and. should be treated seriously. It is utterly useless to take pepsin and ordinary stomach tablets. The excesB acid must be neutralised by the adminis tration of an efficient antacid. For this purpose physicians nearly always recom mend taking half a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little water after each meal. Large quantities may be used if necessary, as it is absolutely harmless. But be sure to get the bisurated magnesia as other forms of magnesia have n...

Keeping Abreast of the War. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

Keeping flM oMha War. ^ "Life," the popular Australasian magazine, continues to provide a more comprehensive view of the progress of the war than any magazine we know. The current (March) issue contains, in three sectious, a masterly summary of the month, by Dr. Fitchett, in which that brilliant writer describes the war fare in the trenches, the battle on the seas, and finally, indicates in which direction the stream is running. To supplement this main statement of of the position of the rival forces which, with its full illustrations, occupies about one-fourth oE the total issue of " Life," there are scores of articles, pictures, stories, and " explanations," so that one feels after reading " Life," that he is keeping well abreast of the progress of this tremendous struggle.

Cycling and Motor Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

The Canadian Government has in contemplation a vast scheme of road im provement, which will necessitate the ex penditure oE £27,000,000. It has been discussed for a considerable time, bufc has heretofore hung fire. The war has, however, given it the needed stimu lus, for it has resulted in a great num ber oE men being out of employment. The project is a very ambitions one, and when finished will have far reaching effects in the development of the motor industry. Heretofore standard British cars have not been suitabe for Canadian road3, or rather the deeply rutted tracks which are misnamed roads. These new highways will afford proper running con ditions for cars built on purely English lines. According to reports nothing ap proaches in efficiency for transport the motor waggons serving at the front with the British Army Service Corps, and equal or still greater tribute is paid to their drivers. It is estimated that there are nearly 300,000 motor cycles in use in Ireland, j England, a...

Country Roads Board. VISIT TO GRENVILLESHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

VISIT TO GEENYILLESHIRE. At the Grenvilleshire Council meeting on Thursday the President (Cr Kennedy) an nounced that the Country Roads' Board would visit the Shire on the morrow (Fri day). They would not, he thought, make a tour of inspection, but confer with council lors as to which should be regarded as main roads. Councillors must, he said, remember to point out the amount of foreign traffic using their main roads. More than half the traffic on the Skipton road was foreign traffic, and the same thing applied to roads in the other ridings. Ha thought, so far as the main roads were concerned, that the Board would have pretty well made up their minds before they came into the Shire, as they had their own maps to refer to. It was a serious question whether the Council should go in for the Board's assistance largely or moderately. Hia own opinion was that they should go in moderately, as they could then see how the Act worked. If it worked well, more roads could be proclaimed later o...

LOT NINETEEN. By Gladys E. Hartley. "You quite understand whicli lot I ' mean? Lot No. 19!" | "Yes, yes, I understand beyond a doubt, but I don't like doing it, sir, I assure you." ' "Tut, tut, man, don't be a fool. You have done the same thing scores of j times before, I'll swear; only the lots in question didn't happen to be worth so much." "That's true. Well, I will risk it!" "Risk it! Why, bless the man, there's no risk; you've only not to be aware of the fact that there is any special value attached to Lot No. 19. And for this, mind you, I pay you £100 more than your commission would amount to if the Mauritius were sold for a big figure." "Very well, then, let it be under stood and no more said. The 1 t will probably fetch less than £5," said the auctioneer. The two men passed out of the room, and as their footsteps died away on the carpetless stairs a figure rose out of the big armchair well hidden by piles of crockery, carpets, rugs, and rolls of oilcloth, put ready for the c...

THE KASSER AND KING ATTILA. The King of Modern Huns. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

THE KASSER AND KING ATTILA. The King of Modern Huns. "When you meet the foe you will defeat him. No quarter will be given, no prisoners will he taken. Let all who fall into your hands be at your mercy. Gain a reputation like the Huns under Attila." These were the words of the Kaiser on the eve of the departure of his troops for Pekin on July 27, 1900. And who were these Huns and their King Attila, whose fame the Kaiser wished to emulate? So vile was their reputation that, according to legend, they were the offspring of the witches of Scythia, who had been driven from decent so ciety for their foul practices. Historical fact, however, gives them an Asiatic origin of Mongolian or Tartar stock. They _ originated somewhere in the extensive barren country north of the great wall of China, and from thence spread until, under their renowned King Attila, they threatened the Empires of the East and West. This renowned war rior seems to have been full of the grim egotism so prominent a featur...

RUSSIA'S REMARKABLE MONASTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

RUSSIA'S REMARKABLE MONASTERY. At Solovetsk, in the Russian Gov ernment of Archangel, is the most re markable monastery in the world. It is enclosed on every side by a wall of granite boulders "which measures nearly a mile in circumference. It is very strongly fortified, being supported by round and square tow ers about 30ft. in height, with walls 20ft. in thickness. The. monastery consists in reality of six churches, which are completely filled with sta tues and precious stones. Upon the walls and towers surrounding these churches are mounted huge guns, which in the time of the Crimean War were directed against the British White Sea Squadron. The monks who inhabited the monastery at that time marched in procession on the gran ite walls while the shells were flying over their heads to prove how little they feared the attacks of the British fleet. Ten thousand pilgrims come annu ally to Solovetsk from all parts of Russia to view the churches and re lics. They are conveyed in steamers...

THE DREADNOUGHT ARGUMENT SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NORTH SEA BATTLE. FIFTEEN-INCH GUNS NEXT. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 6 March 1915

THE DREADNOUGHT ! ARGUMENT ! SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NORTH SEA BATTLE. FIFTEEN-INCH GUNS NEXT. It is recorded that one of the offi cers of the Blucher, on being picked up after that unfortunate vessel had. been raked from stem to stern by H.M.S. Lion, remarked: "The Father land might beat England on land, per haps, but on the sea, never." So, slowly, does the truth dawn on the minions of the Kaiser that in naval might England is still England, and that so long as her supremacy on the sea remains, as it will remain, Ger many has no chance whatever of suc cessfully prosecuting this war. The gradual unfolding of the naval drama tends to emphasise the enormous in fluence over the fortunes of the war that England's fleet exercises, and brings home more forcefully the con tention that the shadows of disaster gather ever more quickly around the doomed Fatherland. In this connection the naval events of the last few months, culminating in the disastrous" flight of the Germans from the Dogger Ban...

So many thousands of hales of socks, | scarves, mittens, jackets and shirts | have to be got away to the fighters on S the other, the cold side of the world. Organised working parties who took a holiday during January are speeding up, and in appointed places at halls or houses in town and districts they give hours of every day, or days of every week, to the duty. The heads of the Red Cross League ask that efforts may not be relaxed. They want all the articles that can be sent in. Spe cially required are good socks, those knitted with 11-12 needles with Whel an's wool are found best; broad and long scarves, tube fashion, 10 inches wide double, and one o~: one and a half yards long; and any number of flannel shirts.
