Public Notices. WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS. Treating a tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great care and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time. Until we are absolutely certain that the cavity is " right," we do not begin filling. Then our expert knowledge operates. That is the reason why a Coventry Filling never gives trouble —never falls out—and lasts as long as the tooth itself. Let us Examine Your Teeth—it will certainly Pay You. C. W.

In his endeavor to free the animal Mr Morris was compen sated by way of a severe kick, but the damage otherwise done was only slight. Where are tho Lights? At the monthly meeting of the local Progress Association held on Wednesday it was mentioned dur ing the discussion, that one worthy [ citizen when cycling across the rail way at night time on one occasion came into sudden and unappreciated contact with a train baring the road way.

YOUTH AND AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

YOUTH AND AGE. Youtli goes to bed and ero his head has fairly hit the linen he falls asleep, his slumbers deep, and Morpheus is grinnin'. Throughout the night this happy wight is slumbering and snor ing. though thunders crash and light nings flash and waterspouts bo pour ing. He leaves his couch without a grouch when morning light has kissed him; refreshed and braced his sleep has chased all worries from hi6 sys torn. The old man goes to his repose with troubles beyond number, for hours must pass, ho knows, alas! ere he gets to slumber. He'll thrash around and every sound will wake him If he dozes, the tomcat's yowl, the watchdog's howl, the rooster's "Holy Moses!" He hears the fe>'t of pilgrims fleet along the pave go bouncing; he hears the clocks In dis tant blocks the leaden hours announc ing. The cricket seems to let out screams as loud as horns or whistles, his pillow fair he'd promptly swear, is stuffed with bricks and thistles. He bats his eyes and kicks and sighs, the swe...

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the "Northern District Standard.") [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

Points in Passing. (Written Specially for the " Northern District Standard.") To many who have watched the plastic time serving policy of the Pea cock Government during the past few months, it will come as no surprise to know that a third no-confidence motion has been tabled. It is well-known that for some time Sir Alexander has not possessed the confidence of his own party, and that the Ministry has not been a happy family. No Liberal Premier perhaps has yielded more ground to the Labor Party—and always at the expense of a growing estrange ment from him on his own side of the House. Yet he has failed to placate the Labor party or even win their re spect. It would appear that for some time the State Premier has been be tween the devil and the deep sea, with a bias always in the direction of capitu lation with his colored majesty, but the crisis has at last arrived, and whatever happens it is quite safe to predict that Sir Alexander Peacock will go out of oflice and never assume the ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

LADIES' LETTER. When we contemplate making Christmas puddings to send to our boys In the trenches our thoughts turn to something large and sub stantial, Buch as udorns a family Christmas Day table. Rut these are not the kind which are needed; they must be individual puddings, as the promoters o( the Alexandra Club Christmas Billy point out. Kach ono should not exceed half a pound in weight, or half a pint in bulk—about a largo cupful. They must be cook ed and sent In lidded tins, because they have to go through the tropics, and puddings in cloths are apt to go mouldy whmi subjected to that or deal, no matter how well they are boiled. These billies sound quite fas cinating—by the way, they have to be special billies because of the packing, but they can be procured at the Alex andra Club for a nimble sixpence. The billies should contain something to eat—a Christmas pudding or cake; something to read—notes, limericks, riddles, sketches. Jokes, etc.; some thing to smoke—cigarettes, ciga...

THE PLOT THAT FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

THE PLOT THAT FAILED. A certain French marshal, among other singularities, had a mania for questioning his ofllcers about their families, his invariable mode of in terrogation being, "What is your father's profession, your mother's, and your sister's?" This stereotyped repetition became at last so wearisome that some of the young subalterns agreed on the following reply, to be given by each in turn, "My father Is a shoemaker, my mother is a laundress, and my sister is very flighty." On the ensuing Sunday, after the usual military parade, the marshal, who had already received the same answer to his questions from three oflicers, turned to the fourth and re commenced in his accustomed strain, "What Is your father's profession?" "He is a shoemaker." "And your mother's?" "She Is a laundresB." "That ' will do," Interrupted the chief, "1 know the rest; your sister is very flighty, and you ■will consider yourself confined to barracks until she behaves better!"

BARBED WIRE. HOW THE RUSSIANS ARE HELD. WHAT THE GERMANS KNEW. Petrograd. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

BARBED WIRE. HOW THE RUSSIANS ARE HELD. WHAT THE GERMANS KNEW. (By H. Hamilton Fyfe). Potrograd. It will hardly bo disputed that about warfare the Germans know more than any other nation before Uio war be gan. They hiul studied killing as a sclenco. Their political theories dis regarded human life. Their army leaders devoted their energy of mind lo planning how best those theories could be carried out by slaughter. And since war began those same minds have been watching Intontly, have been learning fresh methods, have been altering the character of their warfare in accordance with what thoy have observed. One thing they have learnt is the value of barbed wire. They thought, and we thought, that wo knew all about tills before. We used it in South Africa. There were entangle ments in Manchuria. But no one had any idea of the extent to which its uso would be developed in this war. The German notion In war, as in tho activities of peace, is that when you find a tiling useful you cannot ...

GAGGING THE GAS. RUSSIA'S DEFENCE AGAINST HUNS' BARBARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 16 September 1915

GAGGING THE GAS. RUSSIA'S DEFENCE AGAINST HUNS' BARBARITIES. The Russians have at last discover ed what seems bo a perfectly satis factory defonc against the German poison methods. Jndeod, the Germans In the east are now said to havo re turned to the om device of gas bombs, which, of course, are Infinitely less de vastating than a cloud of gas sweep ing upon a whole lino. The Russians do not take kindly to respirators, which, indeed, hardly seem a very sol dierly or practical protection, since the soldier wants every ccll of his lung power if called upon to fight. The Russians on one occasion rushed out of their trenches to meet the cloud, dived through it with or without a wet rag held to the mouth and nose, and fell upon the astonished Germans, who were quietly awaiting the moment to attack. These infuriated soldiers gavo no quarter. But the Germans could not be surprised in that way again. The present mode of dealing with a German gas attack is simple, cheap, and so effective tha...
