ANAEMIA NEURALGIA. A Painful Complaint Caused by Bloodlessness. A Woman Who Suffered Daily Torture tells how Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Built Up her System. Women who have Neuralgia usually find that it is the result of letting their general health go. They get, run down. * They think they will pick up, but find the reverse 'is the case, and the sharp stabbing pains come on. This was the experience oE Mrs. Frederick Martin, of Lodden Place, Portland, Port Adelaide, S.A. "The doctor said I had become very blood less, and 'he was really afraid a decline might set in," Mrs. Martin said. "When I got . real bad my face would burn with Neuralgia, from the temples right down bo the chin. I couldn't locate the pain ; it was just in one place, and then would dart to another, shooting along the nerves. . Inside my eyelids there wasn't a tinge of colour—any gums were white and my lips were purple. My eyes were sunken with black lines under them, and I was very thin. I was dressmaking at the time...

Re-Election. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

Re-Election. Why should politicians appointed to positions as Ministers have to offer themselves for ap proval by their constituents ? The question is not an easy one to fit with an apt reply. Prob ably, the system was established because of some idea that the people who had elected a man to be a plain M.P. mifiht not approve of him as a Minister. This contention, if it hus ever been seriously advanced, is answered by the pretty obvious facts that a constituency con siders itself honoured when its representative is given a portfolio, and the twopenny-coloured Minister offering himself for re-election has a decided pull at the poll over the penny-plain candidate. The system that sends a Minister out for re-election is an extremely wasteful one. Now and then it happens that a Minister is rejected at one of theso extraordinary elec tions, but this is so seldom the i-ase that it cannot be held to justify the proceedings. The chances are that if the sc.it is lost it is foi reason quite a...

"Tickets Please?" [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

"Tickets Please?" Ajgain there are complaints about the manner in which the public are served at the ticket windows of our main station. The queue sys tem is talked, of ; but whece it has been tried the public is as ill-pleased and little better served than elsewhere, and the hopes of Con stant users of our railway^ are concentrated on some kind of an automatic appliance.

Photo Focus. A CAUSE OP BLURRING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

Photo Toots. By "Lcni." A CAUSE OP BLURRING. The instruction to hold the camera still is good, but it may be overdone. A writer in "Photo graphy" condemns the practice of holding the camera with excessive rigidity, "with every muscle tense'. This, he contends, is not necessary. It may be held quite freely and easily when once the busi ness. of button pressing is understood. When very slow hand camera exposures are to be given, it will be found helpful to steady the body by lean ing against a tree, wall, or other firm support, or even against a stick or umbrella ; but lor a six teenth of a second or shorter exposures this is not needed. Another cause of a blurred image ii, to be found in bad focussing. This nearly, always reveals it self by the, fact that the biur varies in quantity with objects at different distances from the camera. If any one' part of the picture, however small, is perfectly sharp, wo can dismiss the idea that move ment, of the camera , during, exposure took place...

An Invader Prom America. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

An Invader Prom America. The Meat Trust shows its unpleasant and lor midable head in Australia again, and at length there are grounds for, apprehension even amongst} the most conservative members of the commu nity—(those men and papers which, in their curious constitutional distrust of any form of drastic legislation directed against the sacred cause of Private Enterprise, a cause that is even more thaii a religion with them—have buried their heads deep in the dust, and refused to recognise the presence of an. imminent danger. Private Enterprise, like incst other things, can be good, bad and indifferent. It is not essenti ally good, neither is it essentially bad. It is what men make it,, and those gentlemen of America who dominate the gigantic meat ring there have made it just about as bad as any thing this side of the devil's great original Private Enterprise can voll be. The Armours and Swifts are the pirates of our time. It is no longer possible for men in whom a vigorous spirit ...

TO PREVENT PICTURE GLASSES FROM BREAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

TO PREVENT PICTURE GLASSES FROM BREAKING. The chances of the glass in a picture frame get ting broken, during the course of a railway journey are vary much lessened by cutting two strips of brown paper an inch or two wide, and a little shorter than" the diagonal' of the glass, and pasting them crosswise upon it. Not only does this seem to make the glass ;much less susceptible to fracture from shock, but should it. get broken there is much less likelihood of pieces of glass getting loose and damaging the front of the picture itseli.

KEY-NOTES Wanted-Hot Coppers. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

Wanted-Hot Coppers. Somebody appears to have discovered all of a sudden that our police are tno slow. They are not hot enough on the scent, and, judged l>y results, fail to earn their money. An officer is said to have directed one district—a crowded metropolitan one—to buck vi:> aii'l provide a few more convictions, and, despite a modified denial from the Chief Comrnh jionor that he is the guilty party, we may ioolc for a sudden re vival in minor assault and insulting-behaviour cases over Oollingwood, Fit'iroy, and Carlton way, these three suburbs eomori.-ing the section in which the constabulary lias not shown itself sufficiently alert. Mr. Sainsbury is said not to relish the idea. Certainly public opinion is not much excited over the failure of the police in small matters of keeping order here. The neglect, if there is any, has not produced' a grievance, but if the/ordinary peeier feels he is in duty bound to bestir himself to please his officers a grievance wili soon be for...

A DEAD BLACK VARNISH. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

A DEAD BLACK VARNISH. A dead black varnish for the inside ot home made photographic apparatus can be made by taking some ordinary starch paste, not very thick, and thoroughly incorporating with it ' some vege table black, or, failing that, lamp-black. The exact quantity i equired is best found by making a .test of the mixture on a piece of wood or card. It is best to strain the mixture through two or three thicknesses of muslin, as thi3 not only gets out all lumps, bet also helps to make the mixture more uniform.

The Riverina is Victoria's Greatest Province. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

-1 ne Kiverina Is Victoria s Greatest Province. Something better than the Holman - Watt border railway agreement is required before Victoria w.ill come into its own. The agree ment allows • the construction of one or two small railways across the Murray into the Riverina ; but that will not bring to the port of Melbourne the huge volume of Riverina trade that should find , its natural outlet here. In the first place, Victoria's invasion will al ways. be watched with a jealous eye by New South Wales. So frightened of Victoria aic some sections of New South Welshmen that the Sydney press has whacked and banged prodigi ously at Mr. Holman for this little act of Interstate reciprocity, and there would not have been the slightest chance t.f ratification of the agreement had the Wade Tjiberal party been returned to power. Apart from this jealousy, 'the agreement is feeble, because it provides for a very inadequate tapping of the Riverina trade, and because of the serious drawback of the b...

CURRENT NOTES. Southerners Must Pay For the North. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 22 January 1914

CURRENT NOTES. Southerners Must Pay For the North. How many readers can proyide a son or a daughter or money for Northern Australia ? How many know that this is becoming the crucial question in northern development ? Mr. Joseph Oook, who as leader of the Common wealth Parliament has most responsibility in the matter, has run away from • it. Some weeks ago he said he hoped to fill the coun try with Maltese anfl Italians and persecuted Jews. He was promptly told he was making himself hopelessly ridiculous. So he withdrew. He changed his plans. Thus rapidly do e,reat men alter their continental schemes. He began to sing a different tune. He was staggered by the claim of medical men that only picked men would be capable of developing The North. He became oppressed by "the serious economi cal questions" of northern settlement. He said they were very, very serious, indeed ; and he plaintively asked, "Can wc pick a sufficient number of such men to people the Territory, and find them suffic...
