Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

WE MUST REPEAT, When Everybody Tells the same Story. Ib is hard to say new things about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. They cure the lame and achiag back, the sufferer from kidney disorders, and the troubles of those whose urinary organism is wrong In its action. That they do this is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt remains. Public endorsement is easily proven. Read this :— Mrs P. Golding, fruiterer and confec tioner, High street, Rushworth, says :— "For some time a member of my family was very much out of sorts and always complaining of a nasty pain in the small of the back. At first I did not worry much about it, thinking it would soon go away, but as time went on it seemed to be getting worse. Doan's Backache Kid ney Pills were brought under my notice as a cure for backache and all ailments arising from disordered kidneys, so I got - a bottle. They proved in every way satisfactory, for after taking them for a week or so the pain disappeared en tirely, and has never ret...

"SLEEPERS AND OTHER THINGS." To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

"SLEEPERS AND OTHER THINGS." To the Editor. SIR,—As a ratepayer allow me to ex press first of all my thanks to you for having thrown your columns open to correspondents to voice their own and ratepayers' opinions generally on the doings of our shire councillors for some time past. It seems to me that if things are to be remedied the cure must come from outside the council chamber ; there seems to be a very remote ohance of the necessary care and business-like ability that usually characterises local governing bodies being applied internally. After watching matters carefully for a long time past it seems to me that a clique exists, and it seems possible for a man to prove clearly (to outsiders at any rate) as in the case of Or. Furphy, and the Park road oontract, that our money has been thrown away, and yet be beaten, and the step that an employer would take in the interests of his business" is left un done. Might I ask—do the councillors as a body run shire matters, or does one of t...

MURCHISON V. CHURCH OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

MURCHISON V. CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Murchiaon sportsmen journeyed to Rush worth in numbers on Wednesday last. The riflemen, who were to take part in a triangular match with Rush worth and Colbinabbin, made the journey per ordinary train, while the cricketers, who were to meet the Church of England team, travelled per vehicle in the early part of the afternoon. Of the seven shooters taking part in the rifle match tour (Messrs Dwyer, Heazlewpod, Oloney and Shewan) were prominent members of the cricket olub, and arrangements were made for these to complete their shooting as early as possible, and then take part in the cricket match. This arrangement worked out satisfactorily, and the cricket match, which was played in the Rush worth publio park, commenced a few minutes after three o'clock. Both teams were well represented, al though Murchiaon were still without the services of Harry Day. The visitors had first occupation of the wickets, Thome and Soden opening to the bowling of Locke arid ...

BAILIESTON V. MURCHISON. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

BAILIESTON Y. MURCHISON. The above teams of cricketers met on the letter's ground on Saturday last, and the match proved one of the most interest ing games of the season. Onlookers (of whom there was a fair sprinkling) and players were kept in a state of excite ment right throughout the match, as it was anybody's game right up to drawing of stumps. At one time, 'tis true, Mur cbison's supporters were somewhat doubtful of their men being able to win or play out time and thus make a draw, but Thorns (eighth man in) saved the situation and by dintof steady and careful play he kept bis wicket intact until draw ing of stumps, Bailiesbon opened their innings with G. Smith and M. Petbifer but after the latter had scored 1 Smith was caught off J. Cloney for 0. Jones next appeared and after making 14 fell a victim to Shewan off J. Cloney. C. Mason went for 4, W. Pottifer 0, B. Smith 6, W. Smith 11, H. Mawson 2, R. Pettifer 15, L. SteveDs 4, 0. Baud 6, whilst M. Pettifer carried his bat right...

Methodist Harvest Thanksgiving Services. (CONTRIBUTED). [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

Methodist Harvest Thanksgiving' Services. (Contributed). The above servicea were held in the Rushworbh church on Sunday last. In the morning the congregation was good, but in the evening the church was packed. The Rev. H. Richardson conducted both services, and the singing by the choir, conducted by Mr Holder, was very good. Mrs Parrott presided at the organ, and this meant effect and efficiency of a high order. The collections on Sunday (£5 6s 5d) were a record for many years. The intense heat made things uncomfortable, bub the preacher took in the situation and wisely curtailed his sermon. On Monday there was a fine attendance, aud a short but interesting programme was given. An overture on violin and organ was rendered in fine style by the Misses Taylor, Mr Pechotsch, of Nagambie, accompanying on violin. Mr Bond's solo was much enjoyed, whilst a recitation by Mrs Hannah, executed most capably, re ceived well-merited applause. Next followed a duet by Misses Lambden and Risstrom, r...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 13 March 1914

Dyspeptics Need Not Diet. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING . FOOD FERMENTATION. Food fermentation is the cause of all the discomfort and pain dyspeptics suffer. It does not necessarily follow, however, that iu order bo obtaia relief they must deny themselves the enjoyment they derive from eating, so-called indigesiible luxuries, The most satisfactory method of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent the fermeniabion from occurring at all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be explained that most of the foods we eat contain a certain quantity of acid-forming elements, and indigestible foods, of course, contain a larger proportion. When these foods are eaten, the acid, collects, irritates the walls of the stomach, and causes the food to ferment while it is digesting. This fermenting food also gives off gas which distends the stomach, causing that full, uncomfortable feeling so often noticed after eating. The root of the trouble " the acid fermentation. To suc...

AN ARBITRATION CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 20 March 1914

AN ARBITRATION CASE. Mr Knight presided as an Arbitration I Oourt at the conclusion of "court pro ceedings on Friday, when the claim of J. Slee y. the Rushworth-Colbinabbin Railway Trust in respect of compensa tion for the unexpired portion of a lease held by complainant for land on which he had erected a blacksmith's shop. Mr Owen Dixon (instructed by Messrs Darvall & Horsfall) appeared for complainant Slee ; Mr W. H. San derson (instructed by Mr Burt Stewart) for the defendant Railway Trust. Mr Dixon briefly outlined the case for complainant, who held a verbal lease of the ground since November 1904. The land belonged to John Bartlett, and the rent was set down at 30s per annum, but the actual rental value of the land was about £13 per annum. It then became a matter of mathematical calcu lation as to the value of the unexpired term of the lease. The land had 'for merly belonged to a Mr Darby, who died, and the executors sold the land. Slee was prepared to go up to £100 for...

ANSWERS SATISFACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 20 March 1914

ANSWERS SATISFACTORY. A bright, stalwart, young man who had just graduated from a medical college applied for examination tc enter the United States Navy. He was directed to appear before a medi cal board composed of old naval sur geons. After a careful and lengthy exam ination, the president of the boarc asked, rather abruptly: "Doctor, sup pose you were called to see a mar who had been blown up, what is thf first thing you would do?" With emphasis he replied: "Waif till he came down, sir." The old surgeon looked at hire keenly and continued: "Suppose for your impertinent answer, I shoulc kick you; what muscles would I bring into play?" "The flexors and extensors of mj arm, for I should knock you down.' "You'll pass," said the old surgeon

A PLUCKY ENGINE DRIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 20 March 1914

A PLUCKY ENGINE DRIVER. During a coal strike in. America s coal train was stopped by the strikers about a quarter of a mile from a wood en bridge. The leader told the drives that he must not run the train through and the engineer declared that hr would. ■ "Come down, Jim!" cried one of the strikers. "We know you too well tc harm you. We have a keg of powder on that bridge, and when the boys see you coming they are going to light the fuse straight away." "All right," replied the driver, grim ly; "I've promised to run this train through, and through she goes." With these words he opened the throttle, and the train dashed on. The strikers immediately lit the fuse. On and over the bridge the train went. As the last car cleared the structure, bang! went the powder, and the bridge was blown to splinters. The fuse was a quarter of an inch too long.

VARIATIONS IN TESTS OF CREAM [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 20 March 1914

• VARIATIONS IN TE6I5 ui- GKEAiVI | The variation in cream tests allowed to suppliers is often a source of mis understanding, and farmers are at a loss to understand why so much dif ference occurs. This question has been taken up by the Kansas experiment station, and we extract the following from a recent bulletin:— The higher the temperature (othei conditions being equal, up to a certaiD point, about 150 degrees P.), the richer the cream; and the lower the tempera ture the less the percentage of fat un til the cream separator begins to clog up. The variation ranges from 1 to 19 per cent. A separator clogs at differ ent temperatures, depending upon the kind of machine used, and whether or not the bowl is previously flushed with hot water. In the latter case the water tends to warm the bowl and the milk and cream follow the outlet with the water, and after getting well star ted, it is easier to continue separation than to start the cream and milk with out water at the beginning. When...

Dargalong and Murchison District Turf Club. [Newspaper Article] — Murchison Advertiser and Murchison, Toolamba, Mooroopna and Dargalong Express — 20 March 1914

Dargalong and Murchison District Turf Club. A general meeting of members of the above club was held at Oadan's Cale donian hotel, Murchison, on Friday even ing last, when there was a fair attendance of members, the president (Mr Ernest Gregory) occupying the chair. The secretary (Mr Chas. J. Francis) presented .a statement of receipts and expenditure in connection with the recent summer meeting of the club. The state ment revealed the fact that this meeting was not nearly so successful as the sum mer meeting of 1913. Not taking into consideration any sales of members' tickets, the receipts fell some £18 short of the expenditure. However, it is ex pected that the revenue derived from 'sales of members' tickets (for both meet ings) will amount to something like £60, and when a fair proportion of this revenue is allotted to the receipts of the summer meeting there will be a small balance on the right side. The revising of the programme for the annual Easter Monday meeting was undertake...

The bazaar inaugurated in the interests of the Roman Catholic Church was opened in the shire hall, Rushworth, on Wednesday evening, when there was a crowded attendance of the public. The hall had a very presentable appearance, the various stalls being laid out to ad vantage, while the large number of earnest workers did real good business. Prior to opening the band played some very nice selections in front of the hall, after which Mr JameB Howe had a few words to say in expressing regret at the absenoe of Mr Frank Clarke, M.L C., who had been prevented from attending to open the Bazaar through a sad family bereavement. Mr Gordon's services could not be obtained at the last moment, and he therefore would call upon Or Gunn to perform that function for thorn,
