"Home, Sweet Home." [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 30 April 1898
"Home, Sweet H'ome." What a beautiful place home is whe i the father is bilious, the mother is suf fering from female weakness, and the baby has the croup ; father frowns and swears, mother scolds and grumbles, and baby yells I And yet this husband and wife may be two of the best-natured and reasonable people on the globe when they are in good health. It may seem ridiculous to say that nearly all domes tic disagreements are caused by. the liver, but a careful study of the problem reveals the fact that such an insertion is quite within the bounds of reason: When a person is in ill-health they are impatient, unreasonable, and quarrel. some ; What more natural then than a family " tiff." Few people are cynical enough to believe that married couples don't wish for peace and harmony, and stcle reason must, therefore, be found for their all too common differences. Bile Beans come, therefore, in the guise of a peacemaker; they put the liver in good or'der and invigorate the whole system, g...

One day Peter fell sick, made his will, at. tended to his concerns with God and man, tsd quietly passed away in the arms of his weeping wife. The whole commune attended the funeral, and at the end of the day, so mourfnnl for her, Bridget returned honme, where it was her lot to remain in communion with her grief. The thought of retiring to test scarcely en* tered her mind. Seated in a large straw armchair at the foot of the bed, with head resting on her bosom and hands joined, she asked of God the favour of soon rejoining * her husband. An unusual noise attracted her Attention. Perhaps some " gorgon, dydra or chimera dire," escape...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 30 April 1898
The coming dread of the Australian colonist is the apparant increase of that dreadful complaint, Hydatids. Some say that there is no cure for it, only by operation; but in my experience 1 say that the only cure is to be found by Medicine. My son I found had a small swelling on his side, although but little notice was taken of it until it in creased in size; and four (4) years :afterwards we took him to two (2) doctors, who wanted at once to ope "rate upon him. I at first objected, but afterwards took him to the Childreu's .Hospital for operation, which was un successful. After another month he ;had to be operated on again, which was also unsuccessful. He lingered for hbout three (3) months, getting very -weak. I was then advised to take him •to the Homceopathic Hospital. The doctors there also wanted to operate 'upon him again; but, experiencing a doubt as to his recovery I then thought that as the doctors in both hospitals 'had expressed a doubt as to my son's ,recevery, I made up ...

Healesville Show. The second annual show of the above society was held on Wednesday and Thursday, and we have great pleasure in stating that it was a pleasing success. Though the society has only been in augurated some two years, it has proved itself a useful body in our midst, and its efforts in this direction were re warded by the large attendance of an appreciative public. Matters did not portend too favorably early in the season for the carrying out success. fully of the society's fixture, but thanks to the adaptability of the soil in the district, aided by useful showers later on, cereal growth. and autumn plants throve with a vigor that was surprising. Anyone observant with the condi tions under which Healesville suffered during past season, could scarce realise that the exhibits shown-of which there .were a large number-were speci mens off the land of our district pro ducers.

A RIDE WITIJ THE CZAR. .Among the most famous sights. of St. Petersburg is a fine equestrian. statue ,in bronze of its renowned creator, Peter the Great. The figure-which stands on the left bank of the Neva, opposite the Senate House-is appropriately mounted on a huge block of grey granite from East Finland which was one of Peter's'first conquests The great Czar is represented as sitting erect on a rearing horse, and pointing with his right hand to the spot on the opposite bank where he built with his own hands in 1704 the first house of his new capital, while beneath his horse's hoofs lies crunhed the serpent that typifies the grovelling ig norance and superstiiution which itmpeded his granl designs. Now, it happened that one cold anturais. night an English sailor, who had jur: landed from a newly-arrived cargo steamer was strolling back across the Senaste-House Square, and, as his ill-luck would have it stopped to take a passing look at the im perial statue.
