YOU SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PUKE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived ! SANDER'S EXTRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as possessing. unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers. The preparation of SANDER'S EXTRACT from the pure selected leaves, and the reQnement by special processes give it curative virtues peculiarly its own. There fore, be not misled! Demand and insist upon the GENUINE SANDER EXTRACT, and you will derive the benefit that thousands have derived from it before. "When ill you should not depress yourself more by the common, bulky and nauseating eucalyptus oils and so-called extracts. What you want is quality and reliability in small dose, and this you find only in — SANDER'S EXTRACT. .

HAGENBECK ZOO ANIMALS IN LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 April 1914
HAGENBECK ZOO ANIMALS IN LONDON since,the publication,'some four years aso, of, an English translation of Carl IHagenbeck's "Tliieren und- Menschen" (says "The Spectator"^ so much has been written of the Hagenbeck methods of exhibiting wild animals, and so many contrasts have been drawn between Zoos-with and without eagres, that there will no doubt be a'large number of visitors attracted to Olympja to see for themselves the Hagenbeck collection of animals now on view in that mucli-en during building. A certain proportion, perhaps, will linish their visit with somewhat mixed feelings. That will particularly be the case with those who know, best the conditions under which animals are shown to the public in Re gent's Park. For in bringing the "Wonder Zoo" to London, and in put ting forward tho many claims for it •with which advertisement has made us lamiliar, what the proprietors have really done is to challenge a close com parison with the methods of the Lon don Zoological Gardens, an...

BEWARE THE AVALANCHE SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 8 April 1914
BEWARE THE AVALANCHE SOME PERILS OF WINTER SPORTS. So many people go to the Alps every winter, and the proportion of serious accidents is apparently so small, that the novice.undertakes his winter holi &lt;lav in far too light-hearted a fashion. Let him (says a special correspondent in "The Daily Express"), however, try to insure himself against winter sports accidents, and he will find , that com pany after company will either refuse or quote prohibitive rates. • This brings matter lor serious reflec tion. The apparently small percentage of accidents is explained in this way. Ninety out of every hundred visitors to Switzerland in winter scarcely get out of sight of the hotel. They spend much time on practice slopes, much time in dancing and picnicking. So that all the accidents that happen must be put down to the debit of the ten per cent, who do more serious work. The danger point is reached when the novice becomes a little more am bitious. He looks upon the Alps as a play...

NAVVY MISSION . "The breaking-strain comes in a month. They then, go into the town and blow their stake, hitting the high spots and getting tanked up. ..." I The interviewer — a "Daily News" representative — flew signals of distress and a paraphrase was conceded. "What I mean," explained the speaker, Mr J. M. M'Cormick, the liea'd "of-the little army of missionaries work ing,.under the Navvy Mission in Can I ada, "is that to a man in camp draw ing good money., the. temptation to . gp off to the nearest town and simply let himself go is tremendous. We have enormous odds against u's. in the work we are trying" to. do, but, man, it's great work! "The whole manhood, of Canada is being made out there on the frontiers, away from anyone who sees or anyone who cares except, maybe, a wife, or a another or a sweetheart away in tho homeland, waiting for the man pushing the steel road out on to the prairie and laying up the capital that will set him up in his farm and bring his l'olk out to him...
THE LIZARD=BIRD "A NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLUTION." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 15 April 1914
THE LIZARD=BIRD "A NEW CHAPTER OF EVOLU TION." Some hope of finding a missing link between two animal kingdoms, the bird and the wingless quadruped," is entertained by those now beginning a microscopic Investigation of a part of the booty of the Scott Antarctic ex pedition. A wonderful series of pen guins' eggs, in every state of incuba tion, was secured, and was sent to Cambridge University. The .work of Inspection has just begun, and is at tended with no little excitement of the scientific sort (according to "The Daily Mail"). As appears on the very page of Captain' Scott's diary now opened at the British Museum, the live - weeks' expedition in search of the penguins was heroic in the fullest sense of the word. The three men, Dr. Wilson, Lieutenant Bowers, and Mr Cherry Garrard, set out in the continuous darkness of the winter. They were caught by a blizzard, lost their tent for several days, and only discovered j it, along with their own safety, by a ! happy chance. ' No naturali...

* ' v LAND OF SNOW - n;orway. (By Harold Spender, in "The Daily News.") • Here we arc on the'roof'of Norway. i 'c Yet we arc living'a!life of simple com •* fort, well- lighted-and well heated-in our two-storeyed wooden hotel, and en joying the most pleasant eompanion " ship. The very snowdrifts that bank up our Avails really seem quite, friend ly and cosy neighbors. " "J To-day the,thermometer showed 23 i degrees of l'rost. But from ten o'clock until two a glowing sun — travelling low along the southern horizon—pour ed its rays from a blue sky over the spotless snowfieids that surround usj, and for those few hours life seemed far" warmer and more genial than in Lon don. We are far above all vegetation and all animal life.
