Blotches On Fac. S CAUSED BY BILIOUS QONDITION Nothing is more worrying to peo ple, especially ladies than to have their complexions spoiled by pim ples and blotches. These are invari ably due to poor condition of the blood, caused by a disordered liver not performing its functions, and a remedy that will set the liver right' is consequently *the only- thing to free one from these disfiguFing and painful eruptions. An excellent i stance of the elficacy of Dr. Morse's Indiaf Root Pills as a blood puri fying remedy is related by Miss Vio let Bayley, of 3 Moores Street, off Botany Rd., Alexandria, N.S.W., prho writes:--"Just a few lines to say that I have been taking Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills and founnC they do me a great amount of good. Pre viously I was always suffering from Bilious Attacks, in addition to this I had red patches on my face and was languid and tired every day Having taken doctor's medicines without feeling any better for it. gnd as one of my cousins had re ceived ...
Sunday Corner. True Womanhood. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 April 1914
S Sunday Corner. *True Womanhood. . iThat is not Christ's religion which is moved to-ecstasies of love and compassion for :he Zulus and .Chinese across seas, and is selfish, irritable, greedy, impatient, and disobliging. at home. The true woman is .. the very soul of self forgetfulness in her own home circle. Then wherever she goes she is the same. She carries the sweet, patient spirit of Christ every where." Her hands are gentle as an angel's, and are ever scattering blessings. Her words are thrilled with a strange power of sympathy and tenderness, and carry comfort into the sad heart, courage into the fainting heart, life into the slug gish heart. A selfish woman is a contradiction. Wherever selfish ness does appear in a woman it is g blur that disfigures the divine Sbeauty.

Bathing Accident. A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 4 April 1914
Bathing Accident. A NARROW ESCAPE. Another - narrow escape from drowning "took place on Sunday last, when four members of the 34th company Australian Engineers nearly lost their-lives. It appears that a number of members of the corps who were here for practice, went iinto the sea at the Back Beach for. a bathe. The sea was. rough, with a strong under-current. This they were unacquainted with, and were soon in difficulties. Al though not far in the water they could not reach the shore, and their call for help was disregarded for awhile. Then their fellow bathers did their utmost to save, amongst them being Corp. Henderson whose gallant effort was responsible for one named Bennett been brought to safety. A large wave and under current nearly meant the doom of both. Several comrades who went to their .assistance succeeded by means. of a hand chain in helping the men in difficulties to the sands. They. were unconscious,and while waiting the arrival of a doctor, artificial means of resus...

RENOVATING PASPALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
RENOVATING PASPALUM. As illustrating the wonderful recu perative powers of paspalum, a pad dock which had been in paspalum for thirteen or fourteen years was ploughed up. This was necessitated by constant cutting for seed and heavy grazing having weakened the sward. The experience in question was that of a settler in the Coramba district, New South Wales Sonmc time ago a paddock of twelve acres was ploughed up with the object of utilising it for the growing of fodder crops for the dairy herd. Being dry. at the time the work was heavy, and the ploughing - necessarily shallow. About the middle of December maize was sown. Dry conditions continuing produced indifferent germination. But with the storms of January the pas palum made a move, the young growth showing up between the sods as if it had been planted. The maize was about 4 to 5 feet high, but the paddock was one waving field of pas palum fence high, and in full seed. The response was simply wonderful. An interesting feature of t...
THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
THE FARM. THE ABUSE OF ARTIFICIAL MANURE. In a lecture recently delivered .be fore the Mayfield Farmers' Club, Mr. G. A. Cowie, M.A., B.Sc., in describ ing certain abuses of artificial fertili sers, pointed out as one of the most flagrant the far too common system of one-sided or incomplete manuring. Many farmers were prone to use only one sort of manure and neglect altogether the other fertilising in gredients which may be as important or even more important, for the crop or soil in question. As practical instances of the above error,, the lecturer quoted the fre quent use alone of nitrate of soda', which at first might produce a luxu riant growth, but will afterwards refuse to perform its proper function owing to the exhaustion of the natu-. ral p~liosphates and potash in the soil. The withholding of these essen tial constituents from the manuring often explains the unsatisfactory re sults obtained from nitrate of soda, which, in consequence, is described as a "scourge" and "stimu...
FIGHTING FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
FIGHTING FISH. At Singapore it is the custom to stock garden ponds with queer fishes -many of them of the fighting va riety so dear to the heart of Orien tals. These fish are so combative that it is only necessary to place two of them near each other and irritate them a little to bring on a lively combat. They charge each other, with fins erect, at the same time changing colour in their excitement from the dullest of grey greens to brilliant reds and blues. Indeed, con finement in close quarters , is not needed to arouse their combative propensities. Place two - glass jars close together, with. one of these fighting fish in each, and' they will at once swim round and endeavour to charge each other through the inter plosed glass. Even a single fish, see ing himself reflected in a mirror, will dart at his own image, and, irrita ted all the more by his failure to reach his supposed enemy, will as sume brilliant hues; seeing his re flected antagonist do the same, hel will redouble his e...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. A BAFFLED L * IMPORSTOR, ------- OR,------ THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM : A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. .By 8. W. Hopkins, Author of "On Four Brass Plates," etc., etc. PART 13. CHAPTER _ XIX.-(Continued.) One thing was certain-Mildred . Moore would have nothing more to do with him. He was so excited and alarmed over his own condition that he did not revert to the strange fact that, though Gerald had been sent away from New York to take him away from the pernicious influence of Mildred Moore, Mildred Moore claim ed that she did not know Gerald Lovering. Had he thought of this in his excited state of mind, undoubted ly he would have scented danger, for he would have suspected that Gerald Lovering and Mildred Moore were still keeping up their intimacy, and, if_ such was---thP--ec?a , - it would, of course, be to her interest to restore Gerald to his own, and unseat Barnes. But, had he reflected further, .there was nothing to prevent Gerald. Lovering came forward and claim ing...
A GOOD CATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
A GOOD CATCH. The latest stock exchange catch is. curiously and strangely effective. and because of the amusement it af fords is. worth trying on a friend who has not' yet read this. A bro ker, putting three half-crowns on the palm of his hand, says to a jobber,. "Now, look here, how many coins do you see ?" "Three," replies the jobber, after careful consideration. "Without casting any aspersion, on, your veracity," rejoins the broker, "I say there are four. . . Well,. look here," he continues, re-arrang ing the coins, "'how many are there now :?" . 'Three," . stoutly declares the jobber,, after assuring himself that there has been no palming. "I say there are four," maintains the: broker. . "Will you give a guinea to the unemployed fund if I'm wrong ?" '"No, I won't ; can't afford it." "All right," says the broker, pocketing the coins, "it's off, then." This is. naturally too much for the cur iosity of the jobber. "Well, go on; what's the trick ?" he says. - The three coins are aga...
BORACIC ACID. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
SBioRACIc ACID. P oimerly all the boracic, or borI e acid of" commerce was obtained from borax by heating it with calcined ferrous sulphate in closed vessels, whereby sodoforic acid was formed, and boracic acid was carried on with the watery vapours, which escaped. This was a' long aid tedionusa pr ness, and not much progress' wd. made until it was discovered that boracic" acid could be obtained from the boiling springs and jets of var pour in Tuscany. Long after the dim' :overy of boracic acid in these springs, the brilliant idea struck the physicist as well as the chemist to employ the heat of the natural steam -jets. This method had the ef oeet of converting an unprofitable branch of industry into one of the Ions'. surcc ssfuk_ The lagoons are situated near thfei top of one of the highest hills. As the volcanic vapours pass through the waters of the lagoons the.boracie acid is arrested by the water, which )ecomes impregnated with it. In 3alifornia it occurs as the mineral iassoli...
WHENCE THE WHISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
WHENCE THE WHISTLE. - +-------- Seventy-five years ago the steam whistle, which is metaphorically shrieking the ears off excursion ists on holiday bent, was' unknown. In those days engine-drivers were provided with a small tin horn, which they blew as occasion demand ~d. Apparently, however, they did not always blow loud enough, for in 1833, despite the warning blast, a train ran down a farmer's cart, and utterly destroyed one thousand 3ggs, a hundred pounds of butter, two horses, the vehicle, and the dri ver. When the bill for damages was presented to the railway com pany the managing director sent [or George Stephenson.. Stephenson pondered. Then he visited a musical, instrument maker, with the result that he constructed a horn which screeched most ter ribly when blown by steam. And successive generations have toned that horn down into the familiar whistle of" to-day.
HOW DESERTS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
HiO .ErERTBE ARE FObRE: I iere is a popular idea that desert' .like the Sahara are the bottoms pf :ncierit sea' which have been lifted above tieir original' elevatiofi by geological forces6. This notionz is an erroneous one. It is absolutely cer tain. hiebh authorities cnntend, thaif the sands of all the great deserts have been` formed on the spot by the disintegration of tihe solid rocks on which they rest. Desert sands cobr respond in all respects, so far as their mode of origin is concerned, to the dust and sand that accumulates on our high roads in summer. Al=1 deserts are situated where the winds from the ocean, before reaching them are exhausted of their moisture by" passing over mountains or across e~ tensive tracts of land.
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 April 1914
ADVENTURE OF A BABY BOY. A person who lived some years in South Africa tells the following story: The infant son of one of the Dutch settlers had strayed away. After some time a search-party dis covered little footprints leading in the direction of the bush. Following up these, they came upon a large open space, at the farther side of vwhich they discovered the object of their search sitting hugging a little wooden doll and munching a piece of bread-and-butter. Before they could make their way through the thick, tangled under growth, a large lion sprang into the clearing. The little boy, far from being frightened, ran to meet the lion, holding up the bread-and-but ter, and said, "Take a bite, dog gie." The father stood powerless to move or speak through fear, expect ing each instant to see the child crushed under the lion's paw ; but instead of doing as he dreaded, the lion turned himself over and lay on his back at the child's feet, look ing up in his face as a cat would do at play...
