NERVOUS BREAKDOWN A REMARKABLE CURE What Clements Tonic can do in restoring the nerves to healthy power and making the weakened system strong. A letter in point which is worth reading. No. 6 Post Office Placei South Melb., 2/7/11. CLEMENTS TONIC LTD., " Your tonic is one of the qdickest nerve and brain cures known. I tried all kinds of doctors' medicines, and got no relief as I have from your tonic. I could not stand anyone talking to me, or the noise of the town traffic. I lost appetite and weight. I was that weak at times a child could push me over. I had to give up work. I lay hour after hour awa' e, now I can go to bed and almost sleep at once. -My case was one of the worst I ever heard of. I thought I would never get well. I can hardly believe the relief I have got from Clements Tonic. Nearly all those symptoms I told you of have left me, and two or three xore bottles will make me strong. .Befote this I was going twice a week to the Melbourne Hospital, and many people were ther...
CLEAN OUT THE MENTAL COBWEBS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
CLEAN OUT THE MENTAL COB Sam Walter Foss uses rhyme to read farmers a very useful lesson, and one that should he heeded more than it is: "Yes, clean yer house, and clean yer, shed, And clean yer barn in ev'ry part; But brush the cobwebs from yer head, And sweep the snowbanks from yer heart. Yes, when spring cleanin' comes' around Bring forth the duster and the broom, But rake yer foggy notions down, And sweep yer dusty soul of gloom." "Hoard's Dairyman."' Poultry Note :-Don't hang on to the old hens; get rid of them. Near the door of a living room on a successful Kansas ranch is Pa zott. which reads thus: "The reaea. rat, succeed who mind their own 'isim-ess is because they have so little cmpe-. tition." ,How true ! 1910.
Sunday Corner. Minor Untruthfulness. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
Sunday Corner. Minor Untruthfulness, There are other forms of untruth fulness besides the direct lie. There are those whdo would not speak an untrue word, who yet color their statements so as to make them really false in the impression they leave; or they would not speak a lie, but they will act one, Their lives are full of snall deceits, con cealment, pretences, insincerities, dissimulations, dishonesties.. You know how many of these there are in society. Oh, be true in your inmost soul--true in every word, gct, look, tone, and feeling. Never deceive. There are no white lies in God's sight; it is a miserable action that thinks there are.
THE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
THIE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. It is well to realise that land is bought or leased according to its surface measurement, and if we can succeed in, making the under-soils contribute a share towards the pro duction of better crops, we are add ing to the producing area of our farms in the most economical way possible. Land is getting very dear on the surface, and to get the best possible returns per acre we must, on all our stiffer soils or those! un derlaid by "hard-pan," break up the sub-soils to allow the roots of the plants a full range for root growth. Farming by dynamite has caught on in the United States, and is spread ing throughout Canada and Mexico like a prairie fire. It seems a strange way of making the ground bring forth its produce in plenty, but there is no getting away from the fact that it acts. Doubtless the man who tried the trick first and met with success was quite in the dark as to why it suc ceeded. It is a moot point w...

He .keeps on rub bing until he has worked all his, akin into, folds on his sides and; hips ; then, grasping one. hind leg with both his hands, he hauls off, - one log of his pants, then strips eof, the other hind leg in the same way. He then -brings the cast-off cuti-. ele forward, between his fore-legs,. .into his mouth, and swallows it ; then, by raising :and lowering his head, still swallowing as his head comes down, he strips off the sIin. !underneath, until it comes to his fodre-legs.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
IT is superfluous to even mention the several necessities for the. im provement of Queenscliff,. so often. have Athey been put before our readers. The matter of golf links is amongst this category,. and so far has it been countenanced, that_ the council,. about two years ago, seized with the conviction that golf links were necessary if Queenscliff is to advance,, experi mented at Swan Island regarding the gro~th of grass for' the links. This has all proved a failure-the grass never thrived, due chiefly tom destruction by rabbits. At that time we were strongly of opinion that an arrangement could possibly be made with Mr Wilson for :the rental or use of a large area. Qf :hi ~8Iilng known as the old race course, ground. Experience. has onuvinced us that the experiments as far as. Swan Island is concerned were so much wasted time. This is a pity,, as Queenscliff needs golf links so much. Many of the seaside resorts. have provided them, with great advantage,, and yet, though. the leadin...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. A BAFFLED • __TPO OT , OR, ------ OR,------- THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM: A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. 4 '-+--- ---- By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates," etc., etc. PART 8. CHAPTER XI. Lord Chester, formerly known as Gei'ald Lovering, and once an inmate for thirty days of the New York Penitentiary under the name of Henry Barnes, lounged in his luxuri ous rooms in the Albany, listlessly trying to pass a rainy afternoon without the bother of going out in the storm. It was weary work, for Lord Chester missed the companion ship- that makes a rainy day often the most enjoyable to a man who reads. Lord Chester knew nothing of books. He cared nothing' for them. GiveVim the real thing-life in all its rosy voluptuousness ; the-ctub, the drive, the gaming table, or the sweet hour with some temporary charmer. These were the elements that made Lord Chester's life a merry one; made it worth living, in fact. "Can't stand it much longer," he said to himself. "Wonder if B...

SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL ITS TERIjOI.S.: ITS, DELIGZTS. Except for. journeys. round. the, fringe of South Anmerica, travelling there is a. desperate business. No-. where ' else surely in, the world are? fevers so. 'malignant, fqrests and: rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so.. murderous. More. than one person has started 'p the.

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT, R:.. C. Doneghue, Prof. of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. While all the causes of low yields of the small grains cannot be remov ed, practically all that are of imme diate importance can be controlled in large measure by a well-planned system of crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation and pioper tillage methods are followed, they will suffer less from dry weather than when they are grown continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methods of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more toughage is produced than can be disposed of by the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must be kept and more manure produced to return to the land -to keep up the supply of organic matter. The organ ic matter: in-the soil may also -be maintained by growing grasses and legumes, (clover, lucerne, peas), in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enough manure can be produced on a farm to...
Farmers Should be Students. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 March 1914
Farmers Should be Students. It is a well known fact that noth ing stands still for any great length of time; things either go forward and improve, or go backwards and deteriorate. If a lawyer has ambition to become a better lawyer, he does not diminish his study of the law, but rather in creases it. If a doctor would attain to the highest pinnacle of his profes sion, he. does not practice medicine as it was taught and practiced 100 years ago, but he reads and studies the new ideas as advanced by known leaders and experimenters of to-day. Carpenters, printers, stone-masons,. miners, merchants-all have discarded old and out of date methods for new er and more economical ways in which to do their work. IS THE FARMER CARELESS ? Have we as farmers, kept up the procession ? Let us investigate. Do men who wish to become farmers, in the great majority of cases, think it necessary to go through. a .prescribed course of study ? They do not. Do they read up the newest and best methods of agric...
