How To Cure Indigestion. The following letters will lie of in tense interest to sufferers from indi gestion:— From Mrs. D. H. Cole, 70 Keiglitley road, Subiaco, W.A. "For many years I suffered from frequent attacks of indigestion, follow ed by pains in the chest, severe head aches, sleeplessness, biliousness, con stipation and pains under the shoulder blades. I could retain little on my sto •nach, and vomited frequently. I tried a variety of medicines with very little ?ood result. I happened to read one ^f Warner's Safe Cure pamphlets, and seeing in it how others had taken War ner's Safe Cure 'with beneficial re sults, I decided to try that medicine.

WEATHER PROPHETS THE POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 7 February 1914

WEATHER PROPHETS i THE POINT OF VIEW. (By Barry Pain, in the "Daily Mail.") In the little smoking-room at the back of the bar the conversation was mainly between Mr Hagley, a stolid looking man in gaiters, who had made an unproved assertion and stuck to it, and Mr Peterson, a fluent little man with spectacles, London-born, who ob jected to unproved assertions. There were others present. There was the landlord, a wise man who said little. And in the leather-covered armchair by the fire was the obese figure of Mr Jackson. Mr Jackson had sold a horse extremely well that day—almost too well in the opinion of purists—and was now very tired. Even in sleep his podgy fingers never relaxed their grip of his hall'-smoked cigar, and occasionally he woko up for a moment and contributed something to the conversation which had no direct bearing upon it. "We'll all friends here," said Mr Peterson glibly, "and I am sure I have 110 wish to lose my temper or to make use of any expression which I migh...

"The Rainbow Argus" [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

"The Rainbow Argus" No Resident of the District CAN AFFORD to do without his District New» paper. It is the only means by which the people of the district ©an keep in touch with the affairs ia which they are personally interested. Th« City dailies and weeklies are all very well for those who wish to keep posted upon affairs "of •• State and of the world. But does not a comparatively trilling event ia our own neighbourhood loom much larger in our eyes than the downfall of a nation on the other side of the world? The local newspaper that gives all the new8 of its own town and District— all the doings of its people and the hap penings—is therefore the Newspaper that holds first place in the regard of all who take a healthy interest in their surroundings. In addition to tho personal claim tho district Newspaper possesses it gives very real advantages ficin a business standpoint. Whether in business in the town or 011 the land it is of the utmost importance to have a knowledge of j tvha....

CELLULOID PERIL REGULATIONS FOR STORAGE AND SALE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

CELLULOID PERU REGULATIONS; FOR STORAGE . AND SALE Drastic regulations to meet the cel luloid danger are* made in the report" of the Departmental Committee (Eng land) which has been considering the matter. The proposals (says "The Daily News") are calculated to excite alarm among the public- and to re volutionise the trade. The danger to the purchasing pub lic, it is pointed out, Is increased by the fact that in many cases the na ture of the substance is hot apparent, and th(5 committee urge that some such words as "Celluloid, inflam mable," should be marked on or at tached to such articles and toys. Boots and shoes, parts of which other than the eyelets and hooks - are coated with sheet celluloid, or to which celluloid buckles are attached, should not be sold without an indi cation to this effect. Special risks attach to wearing celluloid in the hair. It is recommended that local autho rities should issue warnings to shop keepers as to the dangerous proper ties of celluloid. The am...

KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" Tlie Emperor and Empress to-day visited the Rathaus. and were wel comed- with an address (says Rou ter's Munich correspondent on Decem ber 16.) In his reply the Emperor said: "Almighty God willed that it should be. vouchsafed to our fathers to sow oh the blood-drenched battlefield tho seed which has borne such glorious fruit. The paths for all German races to un hindered development of their ideal and material forces were then made smooth for all the German tribes. In addition to these favorable preliminary conditions, the present generation had enjoyed the blessings of a long and un disturbed peace. "Perhaps there is justification for asking seriously whether this favor of the times is being rightly used, whether the sons are worthy of the fathers, whether our patri mony is being properly developed even under the strong protection of our splendid defence force on land and water." ■ The Emperor said a glance at the enormous progress of Munich was cal culated...

THE HOTEL LOUNGER. ♦_ The hotel lounger has ever been a problem to hotel managers (says the. "paily Mail.")' A man with very little money but a great deal of assurance, he stays for an hour or two in the lounge or smoking room, uses the hotel notcpaper, and generally behaves as though lie were paying a pound a day for hi^ board and residence. Of late th& loungers have considerably increas ed in number. So much so that in one London hotel at least any man who is not known to be a boha fide visitor is politely asked on. entering if he is staying in the ho tel or desirous of seeing a visitor. A typical hotel lounger was describ ed by a member of the staff of the hotel :—',ITc live.s in lodgings and uses this, hotel as his hoiu,e. He comes in in the morning about 12. Seating himself in the best lounge armchair, he. goea steadily through all the papers he can find. About luncheon time he departs, for ho has never been known to take a meal in the hotel.

QUININE OUTPUT LIMITED [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

QUININE OUTPUT IJMITED' Quinine, tho price "of which has just been advanced, Js one of a number of drugs whoso values are not wholly gov erned by the law of supply and de mand. Tho drug Is obtained from Cinchona bark, which is no named because it was Introduced into medicine in 1638 by Countess Cliinchon, the wife of the Viceroy of Peru, who was herself cured of a fever by Its aid. In the whole sale drug markets the bark Is still call ed Chinchona, but the pharmacopoeial name is Cinchona. Until comparatively recent years the supply of bark was. obtained from South America, and it is in fact still commonly known as. Peruvian bark. But about fifty years ago an Eng lish traveller obtained some Cinchona seeds and brought them to England, where they were eventually bought by the Dutch Government. They were planted in the Island of Java, and af ter a long series of experiments the Dutch Government succeeded in culti vating trees which will yield two or even three times as much quinine as ...

WONDER OF LIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 February 1914

WONDER OF LIGHTS. . "If you had gone to sleep seventy, years ago and awoke to.-day" what ■would be the most astonishing thing? "In his 'Mid-Victorian Memories' Mi • R. TO. Franclllon answers the question •It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt horribly, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago the light of the home was a candlt or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights that turn midnight into noonday. Our house,s and streets have abolished night," says "The Westminster," "and the coming of light would be the wonder of the man who had gone to sleep with a tal low candle and waked to—turn on the switch."
