A Macilent Wasted System. Thoroughly Restored by CLEMENTS TONIC. The Case of Mrs. E. IERTON. (nY A LOCAL RBroaTza.) Surprise is an inadequate term to describe the feeling with which such an announce mont as the following will be received by the general public; yet the actual state of things which prevailed at No. 68 Man quarie-street South, Surry Hills, are nar rated by the lady who experienced them, so there can be no doubt as to the facts. "Not so very long ago," said Mrs. Eliza. beth Morton, who lives at the above address, "I found that I could not stand the cold weather. This was a great sur prise to me, because I used to appreciate a cold climate so much." "Perhaps you were not very well I" ventured the reporter. " I certainly did not feel as buoyant as usual, as I had no energy to bustle about my work as in former days, feeling only fit to wrap myself up and sit down. Beyond that there was no occasion for alarm for a little while; then I seemed to collapse suddenly. I had to j...

THE WAR OF WARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 23 February 1904
THE WAR OF WARS. THIS twentieth centary must grow somewhat older before it is possible to appreciate in their true proportion the events of the nineteenth cen tury. Nevertheless, one faot at least is now abundantly clear-that the Franoo- Prussian War of 1870.71 was by far the most terrifio con filet of that period. It did not engage ho many men as the American Oivil War, nor last so long as either that struggle or the reont Boer War (prolonged into the present century) ; but as an exhbitlon of faultless military genius on the one hand, and reckless incomnpetence leading to national collapse on the other, its like is not to be found in the history of the world. The French, in every respect unready for war attacked the Prussians, who were perfe.tly pre pared for it.' On being told that, the French had declared war, the Prussian Field.Marshal, Vou Moltke, said to his aide-de.camp : " Sec ond pigeon-hole on the right, first tier " ; and there was found the elaborate plan of campaign whi...
SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 23 February 1904
SECOND DAY. Delightfully cool weather prevailed for the second day's racing and the attendarce was very good, being estimated at about 300, a fair proportion of which comprised ladies. The gates, which were bold by the Olnb, must bave returned a good profit, and as a remsult the Club should somewhat recover their losses of previous years. Ow ing to there being no euntries for the braoa. let, presented by Mr. Massey, that race fell through, leaving four on the card to be con tested. In the Railway Handicap, J. Mo hugh, the rider of Daylight, was brought before the Stewards and suspended for six months for suspicious riding. The prinoi pal event - the Queanbeyan Handscap furnished a most interesting and exciting race. Elmo, who had the servines of the Sydney jockey (W. Henderson) repeated his 1899 performance, beating the Gundaroo champion, The Palmist, and Havanna. The racing throughout was excoeptionally: good, the close finishes* speaking well for the judgement and ability of the h...
Garden and Field Calendar fo February. 1904 [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 23 February 1904
Garden and Field Cale?ndar fo February. 1904 (By A. Lan loic,ie, Sel~mrn2n, Goelburn.) THE season is eminently favourable to grow ers, and there should be abundant yield, where ordinary care has been taken. Large areas of crops for winter and spring should he sown. All dairymen can provide abun dance of fodder by sowing at once sorghum, Hungarian millet, rape, etc. Rape is also splendid for green manure. Let all soilbe deeply worked, suitable manure added, and sow in drills to allow of proper cultivation and thinning. Do nut crowd the plants. Indications are for continued stormy, un settled weather, with plenty of rain. Flood rains are very probable, hot at times, and rough winds, but still much cool seabreeze and great variation in temperature. Field.-Sow at once sorghum, Hungarian millet, planter's frien t, amber cane, back. wheat; any time-rape, Cape barley, tares or vetches, oats, lucerne, cabbage, etc; top off pumpkins, corn, etc; dig and store pot tatoes as they ripen-never le...

Cer tainly a very welcome au-mentation to the 1904 balance sheet of the local Race Club. The committee appointed to organise the entertainment consisted of Messrs.
