PERSONAL [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

PERSONAL   Mr. Martin Sullivan, of Don, was taken suddenly ill at Devonport on New Year's Day, and on consulting a physician it was found that he had hurt a blood vessel internally. He was conveyed to the Mersey Hospital, and although he felt a little better yesterday, his condition is grave. Friends will be pleased to learn that Mrs. Buckley, of King Island, one of those injured in thc recent motor ac- cident at Devonport is out of the hos- pital. Mrs. Bowling, the other lady who was injured,is making excellent   progress. A remarkable coincidence in the ex- perience of two returned soldiers is re- ported from the Dominion. The two soldiers fought together in the Battle of Messines, in which both were woun- ded, each losing a limb as a result. After a time in hospital in France, they became separated. Their next meeting was brought about as a re-   sult of the epidemic in Auckland, as the two comrades in arms occupied ad- joining beds in the T...

PENGUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

PENGUIN. Stock Sale.-On Tuesday next Mes- srs. Mainwaring-Bros. are taking over the local sale yards, and purpose hold- ing a monthly stock sale. Several ef- forts have been made to organise this sale in the past; but notwithstanding the fact that hundreds of pounds   worth of stock from this district are disposed of in adjoining centres, fair patronage has never been given the local sale by farmers and graziers. In the interests of the district a regular sale is a necessary adjunct, and it rests with the residents of this muni- cipality to firstly assist two enterpris- ing returned soldiers; secondly, provide a local market to dispose of their own stock and save unnecessary travelling and forced selling due to distance from home; and, thirdly, show that interest in their own centre ne- cessary to give it the prominence it merits. A good yarding is promised for Tuesday next in baconers and store pigs, fat and store cattle, and sellers can depend upon an attendance of &a...

THE TROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

  THE TROTS.   The trots were a great success. An interesting feature was that the first four places in the first division were filled by the backmarkers, a thing not often seen, but here the back horses were given every chance in the handi- cap, and they made an attractive race by getting up carly. Miss Daley showed all her brilliance by getting to the leaders after covering a little over half the distance, but as might have been expected after being driven at this speed she immediately began to fade. Young Hector was another who showed great carly speed, and he hit the front with six furlongs to go. Ribble King was driven with some judgment, and he got up later. It was a fine race, as the three harness horses, Ribble King, Young Hector, and Miss Daley entered the straight together, with Federation drawing to them. Rib- ble King finished strongly, while Young Hector, like Miss Daley, was fading, and Federation just beat Young Hec- tor for second. It was a ...

BOORALINE COMES TO LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

BOORALINE COMES TO LIGHT. M. Davis, who has not had much luck for a long time, won the Purse with Booraline, whom he received as a gift from Mr. G. Bennett. Manorway was heavily backed, but he could just get second with a late run, beating Bel- gium Girl on the post. Elathan ap- peared again for the first time this season, but shaped very moderately. Booraline is fast when well, and even with a penalty should be hard to beat at Devonport to-day.

GOOD RACE FOR LONGFORD HANDICAP. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

GOOD RACE FOR LONGFORD HANDICAP. Eight, all with a chance, stripped for tho Longford Handicap, and they all finished in a bunch. Cantilena was a boom, but went down rather badly. This mare luckily won the Deloraine Cup, and had been overrated ever since.   Diomelon, in contrast to his Mowbray running, set the pace, and had Enig- matical and Cantilena alongside him, and almost abreast to the turn, where Cantilena was beaten, and after a neck and neck go all the way, Enigmatical outlasted Diomedon. Boodseinde   finished well third, but the whole field was in a heap. The solid going did not suit Warneton, who stood off. Ormisia was in about fourth position most of the way, and he seemed to be finishing well had he been able to get through at the end, but there was no chance. Young Flavel did not run to his Mowbray form, but he has always been hard to train, and probably the ground jarred him. Enigmatical has been a pretty good horse on the main- land, but befo...

BRITAIN'S NAVAL SHARE GENEROUS AMERICAN TRIBUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

BRITAIN'S NAVAL SHARE GENEROUS AMERICAN TRIBUTE. Britain's giant share, in the naval responsibility of the war is generous- ly recognised by Admiral Sims, who had   charge of the American navy operating in European waters. London "Times" reports him as having paid the follow- ing tribute at a luncheon to Ameri- can Press representatives: Admiral Sims said that it was very important that the American people should be absolutely informed as to what was taking place on this side. They had not been too accurately in- formed. There had been a number of misapprehensions which had done some damage, but to what extent that was the fault of the Press he was not sure. He had questioned a good many Americans who had come to this coun- try as to what they thought of things   over here. For example, he had asked Americans who, as was customary when they crossed the Atlantic, had had to elbow their way through sub- marines, how many submarines they supposed were operatin...

ITEMS OF INTEREST     The managers of the Sydney Stadium: have sent a cable to Georges Carpen- tier, the famous French boxer, offering him an engagement, and if he makes   the trip an American boxer will be brought over to meet him.   A departmental inquiry into allega- tions of slowing down and the attitude of certain employees toward, returned   soldiers is proceeding in Melbourne. Mr. Braddon, the Commonwealth Commissioner in America, told a New York interviewer that Australans felt strongly about the German colonies, and intimated that some of them ought   to be given to Australia for her share   in the war . Fires continue to break out in King's Park, Perth. W.A. There is now no   doubt that they are the work of an in- cendiary. One-third of the area of 1000 acres has already been destroyed.

SUMMER SKIN TROUBLES. ZAM-BUK IS COOLING, SOOTHING AND HEALING. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

SUMMER SKIN TROUBLES. ZAM-BUK IS COOLING, SOOTHING AND HEALING. The best- healer for Summer skin troubles is Zam-Buk, which is beauti- fully soothing and healing. It is a fine thing when going away on a holi- day to take a pot or two of Zam-Buk with you. You never know what change of air and drinking water may cause to your skin, but with Zam-Buk within reach skin discomforts can be reduced to the absolute minimum and finally banished. Miss Doris Wells, of 271 Brisbane st., Launceston,Tas., says: "I suf-   fered from skin blemishes, such as freckles, and having heard of Zam- Buk's great value for skin-complaints I thought I would try the Balm. I purchased a pot of Zam-Buk and mas- saged the Balm well into the skin twice daily. It was very noticeable that in a short time these blemishes disappeared, leaving my skin perfectly clear. "During an outing some members of our family got terribly sunburnt. The skin was dry and painful, but when Zam-Buk was applied the irrita- ti...

PURE FOOD FOR HORSES To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

PURE FOOD FOR HORSES To the Editor. Sir,-Some little while back much was written and said in regard to the standard of foods offered for sale for human consumption, and commission- ers were appointed to see that no low grade or adulterated commodities were dispensed. Now, Sir, are any restric- tions imposed in regard to the sale of worthless rubbish for horse feed? In travelling through various parts of the State in the spring months, I could not help being struck with the dirty state of many farms in regard to char- lock and wild turnip (this applies   particularly to parts of the Sassafras district) and many other weeds; in many instances the wild turnip consti- tuting more than half of the growing crop. Well, Sir, to those who make, their living with their horses, this state of affairs is manifestly unjust and dis- honest, and the powers that be should see to it that some standard of quality in fodders is maintained when placing stock foods on the markets, as it is o...

DEVONPORT. The Inter-State Steamer.-Owing to the strike on the ts Loongana, and the suggestion that the difficulty might spread to the ss Rotomahañá, there was some anxiety as to whether the latter would leave Melbourne yester- day. Doubt was set at rest when a wire was received stating she had left Melbourne at noon as usual for Burnie and Devonport. She should reach here at 8 o'clock this morning, and is timed to sail on return at 1 p.m.   The Rowing Shed.-The contractor (Mr. P. H. Haines) has completed the work of putting a new roof on the sheds of the Mersey Rowing Club. This was destroyed by fire a short time ago, caused by a railway engine. As the cost of renewal was about £40, and the finances of the club, which has only just been resuscitated, were not in a flourishing condition, the matter was placed before the Com- missioner of Railways (Mr. G. W. Smith), who agreed to meet the ex- pense to the extent of £15. With the assistance of the public, it is hoped shor...

MEN THAT WON THE WAR OFFICER'S SPLENDID TRIBUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

MEN THAT WON THE WAR OFFICER'S SPLENDID TRIBUTE.   Mr. and Mrs C. Sheedy of Sprey- ton have received from Lieut.-Col- onel Rafferty a letter of condolence on the death of their son, Sergt.-Major   Sheedy, who was decorated by the     King in London for bravery prior to   his last and fateful visit to the tren- ches. Lieut.Colonel Rafferty says: -"Sergt-Major Sheedy was on patrol duty with his captain. They were op- erating on an area in front of my sector. About two hours after I re- ceived a report that the patrol was back, but that Capt. Macleod and Sergt. Sheedy had been wounded, the latter severely. Your son be- ing one of my old boys, went down to see him as soon as possible, but he had been sent on to the ambulance. My doctor told me that the wound was serious, but he thought the boy had a fighting chance. On the doc- tor telling Sheedy this he said: "I'll make a fight for it." My doctor speaks very highly of his...

INCONVENIENCE AT LAUNCESTON ACUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

INCONVENIENCE AT LAUNCES- TON ACUTE. LAUNCESTON, Friday. - The in- convenience in the' Launceston-Mel-   bourne shipping service caused by the firemen of the Loongana ceasing work became more acute to-day by reason of the fact that advice received by the Union Steamship Co was to the ef-   fect that there was no likelihood of the vessel crossing here this week. The Awaroa, leaving here to-morrow, is taking 26 passengers, all she can carry, while the Rotomahana from Burnie is absolutely a full ship. The Union Co. found accommodation on the Rotoma- hana to-day for 22 returning soldiers, who will land at Burnie early to-mor- row morning, and come to Launceston by train. Several passengers for Syd- ney went on to Hobart on Thursday night to catch the Westralia this morn- ing, and a number will leave tomorrow to board the Oonah on Monday.
