COMMONWEALTH METEOROLOGY. WEATHER FOR THE WEEK ENDED JANUARY 23. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 January 1914
COMMONWEALTH METEOROLOGY. IVEATHIER FOR THE WEEK ENDED JANUARY 23. This has been on the whole a very quiet week. The only disturbance was one of tropical origin, which passed over during the early morning hours of Monday, accompanied by a consider able amount of thunder and a little rain. Since then an extensive high pressure system has overlain southern waters, and monsoonal influences, though active over the Northern in terior of the Continent, have in Vic toria been only efftTective in helping to strengthen the sea. breezes. Hence. in southern, parts at all events, the weather has been delightfully fine ahtid oeol. Inland it was warmer, and near the Murray fairly hot, maxima being always above 90deg. and -on Sunday at Rutherglen 105 degrees. A survey party who have for sever al months past been surveying the site of the proposed railway from Alberton to W'onwron through Yarram have completed the worl, and left Ygarram I last week.

Maher, of "Nil Desperan dum, " Dartbrook-road, Auburn, New South WVales, "I am sending this statement in praise of Comstock's Nerve and Bone Liniment. Just 12 months ago I dislocated my shoulder, and for about six months suffered continually, being unable to do any work that necessitated the use of my right arm. I was treated by a doc tor, and also tried various liniments recommended by different chemists, but all to no purpose; the severe pains still continuing. After being in this state for about six months, I one day read an advertisement con taining some testimonials from peo ple who had benefited by the use of this remedy, and so decided to test it myself. After trying the first bot tle I felt much relief. I ant now using my fourth bottle, and I find I can use my shoulder with consid...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. Things Change. Those of us who have not the luck to live in those favored districts where the possession of a few acres in the vicinity of a water channel gives the owner a luxurious living, or even wealth, can hardly understand how in the irrigated districts the new order of things is causing endless change. One of the old order of farmers, who made a comfortable competence by growing wheat, found himself coin strained three or four years ago to sel the bulk of his land to the Gov erminent for irrigation purposes, but reserved his home block of 1350 acres on which to pass the remainder of his days. Now he tells me he has been practically freed to sell even this, not thlrough lack of means, but simply because ih' feels ashamed to go on with his old-fashioned wheat cultiva tion on is small lot while surround bd by the: new irrigation farmers. He does Illnot care to lealrn the new sys tem, holding he Is too old a dog to be taughllt new tricks. So he is now breaki...
