Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 8 August 1896

23 n FLETCHER'S PILL't never fail to care INDIGESTION, COSTIVENESS, SOUR BREATH. HEARTBURN, LIVER DISEASE, and KIDNEY COMPLAINTS. FLETCHER'S PILLS and CLEMENTS TONIC are the recognised household re medies of the Australian colonies, ? and every designing quack tries to trade on theirreputation and renown. This is the greatest proof of their merit, and sufferers want .to particular to get the genuine articles' as regret and disappointment are sore to follow the use of the thousands of All-failing";- remedies so freely adver tised. Th6 reputation and widespread use of Clements Tonic and Fletcher's Pills are the greatest proofs of their apprecia tion.to the public. If they were not as represented they would have passed out of. memory long ere this; but instead their sale is greater and they are more esteemed day by day and week by week, and this emphatically proves their undis puted supremacy. Listen to no argu ment from interested parties ; demand the genuine articles and TAKE NO SUBS...

He was not exactly a saint himself, and he had done some queer things in his younger days, but that did not prevent him wishing that young Pearce had gone along in the safe and comfortable course that his parents had prepared for him. He made no demur to taking the whisky in; for, in truth, he was fond of the beverage himself, and there was little fear ol prying excisemen find iag it in the place. _ j Pearce did not stay long at his old ! friend's house, and within an hour he set off for Hobart Town. He had changed his clothes at. Norbury's and considerably altered his appearance, so that he would not be readily recognised as Alfred Pearce. He arranged that Topping, and Bill shou...

A DENTISTS STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 8 August 1896

A DENTISTS STORY. " At one time ia my early practice," said the dentist, "there came to my oiEca a very nervous woman who wasted a tooth extracted. She carried on so that I had trouble in getting ber into the chair, and as soon as I put the forceps near her month, she screamed and bounced about so much that I could not attend to her topth. After two or three visits, each worse than the previous cue, I suggested that I should go with her to Manchester, where gas could be admin istered. At thin time nobody in our town was using gas ; it was then something new. Well, her tooth hurt her so mnch that at last she con tented, and I accompanied her to the city, about twenty-five miles by rail. "When we arrived at the Manchester doctor's surgery, and my patient saw the gas bag and the other sppluncts, she refused to havia anything done. I was thoroughly pro voked, but as my patient was rich and was pay ing for her foolishness, 1 tried to restrain my feelings of of anuoyance. .« About ten mil...

TTNG GOLDEN WEST. IiBTTBR FROM A. QcKENSIiANDKB^ The s^neral tenor o£ most of tie letters from Western Australia which have been received m Queensland nas been condemnatory of the place as a field for emigrants from this colony, but occasionally the other side of the shield is shown. This is the case in a letter just received by a Brisbane resident from a friend who lately went over to try his lock in the Golden West, and from which we have been permitted to make the following extracts: There is no doubt m my own mind, ?backed tip as the opinion isby many ex perienced old hands here, that this .s one if the best of all the known fields on the face of the planet, and that its re sources are inexhaustible. The surface has been merely scratched so far, ami development will prove it extremely rich. But on the other hand the cost of living is at prefent very great owing to the high rates of carriage. And so, situated as you appear to be, yon have to remem ber, if yon come over here, that...
