Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
Sporting. IT is thought that one of the effects of ihe introduction of the totalisator in N S W. will be the migration of several Sydney bookmakers to Melbourne. It is hardly likely, however, that many N S W. ringmen will settle here. Race meetings are more than double in numbers ad jacent to Sydney, and opportunities for . : betting will still be available in opposition to the tote. i Nominations for the big autumn bandt- .-j caps in Melbourne and Sydney are due " r: early in the New Year, and should be asj- 3 large as ever. Sprinting talent will exceptionally well represented next aut- x',?; umn, and there will also be plenty of?4' pood stayers about. The crack New Zealander, The Toff, who is engaged in i the A J C.

A Great Corrective NOT A CURE-ALU. It is not claimed that Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are a cure-all, but as a Corrective of disorders of the Blood, Stomach, Liver, and Kidneys, they aTe unexcelled. They purify the Blood, cleanse the Stomach, and put life into the Liver, and stimulate the Kidneys to perform their pro per functions, and will prevent many of the ailments so common if taken occasionally to keep the system' in proper working order. In thousands of homes Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are the sole family remedy for all general complaints. Those who have never tried them will find neighbours, friends and relatives who can testify to the wonderful corrective influence of these Pills. It is from the little irregularities of the system that the common ail ments "arise. Coming evils cast their shadows before them, and Na ture gives many indications of the approach of these complaints, which, If treated at once,1 may be warded off. The inclination of the young and unthinking ...

Red Cross Jumble Fair. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
Red Cross Jumble Fair. It was a happy thought that caused the members of the Wandiligong branch of the Bed Cross Society to select Friday laet, 29th ult. as a date to hold a jumble fair in aid of the branch fuids, for from every standpoint, the takings wore very gratifying, and as a social intercourse was also particularly enjiyable. All the goods that were displayed on the respective stalls at the M.TJ ' Hall wore donated, and so liberal had been the response that, those concerned were able ta.make a very creditable display of use .luVand serviceable articles. The raemhars had) worked unostentatiously aincg the fair bad been mooted, and backed up as they were by a generous publio, the suc cess attained could only reasonably be expected.

Another War Loan. THE prospectus of a further issue of the Commonwealth War Loan has now been announced and the particulars appear in our advertising columns to day. It will be seen that the terms of the Loan are again liberal, an additional attraction being that a definite announcement is now embodied in the Prospectus that moneys invested in this Loan will be ex empt from the operations of the Wealth Levy. Instalments, instead of being payable in four amounts, have on this occasion been extended over a term of lo months, payable at the rate of 10/ per month, and this modification will no . doubt meet the convenience of many in vestors On the other Iv.nd. people who wish to do sc may pay up in full im mediately, receiving an ;15/ per cent interest.

New Year's Day Races at Myrtleford. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
Mew Year's Day Races at Myrtleford. THE races at Myrtleford on New Year's Bay proved very interesting. There was a large gathering of spectators from almost all parts of the district. The outing was Jnarred somewhat by a violent thunder storm which pacsed over the course shortly after three o'clock. Rain fell in torrents, and the sheltering accom modation was taxed to its utmost by persona anxious to avoid the "ducking." There were a couple of minor accidents, but fortunately the victims escaped with little more than a shock. The Wandili gong Brass Band, under Mr Thcs.

Concerning People. IN another part of this issue the Han. A. A. Billsou, M.L.A., presents his compliments to the electors of the Ovens and wishes them all a bright and prosperous New Year.

Amongst the visitors to the town for Christmas holidays is Sergeant West, who for a number of years has been a prominent member of the Westralian police force.

To Assist Recruiting. PUBLIC MEETING MONDAY NIGHT. THE following is a copy of portion of a ciroular received by the ohairman of the local recruiting committee :-" Local re. cruiting committees shall be formed in each local government area, and, if con sidered desirable as in the case of shires, in towns within the shires which are centres of population, or, in the oaae of metropolitan municipalities, in the dif ferent wards or sub-divisions. The exis- I ting War Service Committees and looal | recruiting committees will be the baBis of local organisation, provided that such committees agree to immediately call public meetings in conjunction with mayois and presidents with a view to in creasing their membership. The com mittees should bo increased to the greatest extent with power to add to their num bers. They might aim at embracing all men and women in their districts who arp prepared to assist in endeavoring to win the war. The present position is terribly serious, thoroioto act at...
She Was Surprised. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
She Was Surprised. Mary Ann, of Lancaster Gate, Baase ment, was having a ?week off, and had arrived back to her little native village in all lier metropolitan paint and feath ers. It was a very litle native village, and Mary Ann, after her many months' ser vice up West, didn't think so very much of it. Even .Tames, tne station porter and her old sweetheart, seemed hopelessly insignificant; and, instead of staggering him with the kiss he ex pected, she looked at him up and down, comparing him with n certain gentle man whose acquaintance she had re cently mads, and who wore plush breeches and silk stockings. 'Porter," slie said grandly, so that everyone heard, "do you know i£ there is a cab here to convey me and my luggage home?" "Wall, I don't know about a cab," responded the staggered yokel, "but there's yer mother outside wi' a bar rer!" "Why does the cannon kick, papa?" "I guessed they charged it too much, sonny." Dreams, unfortunately, have no cash value. Even the man who is a dr...
WHERE BABIES NEVER DIE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
WHERE BABIES NEVER DIE. There is a town in Southern France, called Villiers-le-Duc, where no baby .under a year old has died in ten years, and where, in the same period, no mother has died in giving birth to a baby. i Villiers-le-Duc contains about 1,000 inhabitants, and the average birth rate during the ten years works out at a fraction over IS per thousand so that over 180 babies have been born, all of whom have lived. No other place in the world is able to show such a record, and it has only been made possible in this case owing to a series of ordinances issued by the Mayor of the town, and which are strictly enforced. These provide, amongst other things, for proper food and rest for the pros pective mother, who is obliged to noti. fy the authorities at least two months before the eypectsd event. Free medi cal aid is also available for mother and child, both at birth and after wards.
Social and Farewell Meeting at Harrietville. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
Social and FarewaJl footing at Harriotviile. THE Harrrietville Mutual Improvement Society brought lis annual business to a close with n social in the Public Hall on the evening of the 19th ult., and in recog nition of the invaluable aid Mr J. J. Caldwell reudered to it, the members decided to hold the social on the evening previous to his departure, so that in this way he became an honored guest. In addition to the circle itself, there was a large attendance of friends by iuvitation The hall was decorated with much artis tic skill, and flowers and scenery were so blended as to-give a most cheerful effect, which was further .enhanced by j the manuer of. the seating and other arrangements made in the body of the room. The programme was contributed solely by members of the society, and sufficed to give eloquent testimony to the intellectual quality of the circle. The first item was an exquisitely rendered overture, " Gloria," by Misses Gow (violin) and Tavare (piano). Mr J. H. Jones' r...
GOLF CURES FOR LUNATICS. They Become Sane While They Play. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
GOLF CURES FOR LUNATICS. They Become Sane While They Play. Playing golf is a new idea for the cure of the inEane. Even the most violent patients undergo the cure, and, although they; could easily brain a man with a club, there has never been an accident. The game takes them out into the fr'esh air, gives them a mild form of exercise, and what Is most important of all, it stimulates their brains and gives them something quite new to think about. It is the novelty that ap peals to them, and they will forget their hallucinations, and those who five minutes before avowed they were King Charles, Lloyd George or Helen of Troy, will walk on the green with their clubs, and in a few minutes will be driving and putting, and conversing just as though they were a party of friends out for an afternoon's sport. An hour on the golf course each day helps greatly towards turning patients into normal men and women. It sets a new part of the mind working, and causes them to forget their manias.
OUR BLOOD CANNOT RUN COLD. Why Fear Turns Us Hot and Cold. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
OUR BLOOD CANNOT RUN COLD. Why Fear Turns Us Hot and Coldi The temperature of liuman blood is about 9Sdeg. Pahr., and In healthy persons varies very little. If your blood heat is very much below the normal something serious is wrong with your health. A very hot or an extra cold day affects the temperature of the blood very little. That part of the skin where the sen sations of heat or cold are located re flects the temperature of the surround ings, according to the habits of differ ent individuals. So that Arctic explor ers would feel the heat of a stoke hold terribly, while a stoker would be unable to bear exposure to wind and snow. When you are afraid- you become feverish. The blood rushes to the sur. face of the sliin, giving off a great deal of heat. Then you say your blood "runs cold." The "glow of warmth' felt by those who drink not wisely but too well, who believe they are hot, is a danger ous sign, for it shows that the blood heat must be below normal.
Common Complaints. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
Common Complaints. Sufferers from disordered kidneys are recommended to read the follow ing interesting letters: From Mr. J. B. Besanko, bootmaker, 20 Station-avenue, Ascot Vale, Vic. "Some years ago I cauglit a severe chill. The cold settled in my kidneys and I suffered excruciating pains in the back and under the shoulder blades with most distressing and vio lent headaches, loss of appetite and sleepless nights. The pain and loss of sleep made me extremely nervous and irritable. I was gradually get ting worse when Warner's Safe Cure was brought under my notice. I got some of the medicine and commenced to take it. I could soon feel a change for the better, which continued from day to day. After taking the medi cine [or a few weeks, I became quite well and once again in the enjoy ment of good health. I have not had any return of the complaint since that time." From Mrs. H. Burnes, 49 Maria-st., Petersham, Sydney, N.S.W. "Some years ago my husband was suffering greatly from kidney co...
THINGS TO KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 5 January 1917
THINGS TO KNOW. A clean cloth dipped in hot "water and then in a saucer of bran will clean white paint without injury. A rice pudding is much improved by adding a little cornflour; a good dessert-spoonful to a quart of millc is a good quantity. A teaspoon of vinegar added to the water when washing saucepans that have been used for cooking fish or onions will take away any offensive smell or taste Instead of putting food in the oven to keep it warm for late comers, cover it closely, and set over a basin of hot water. This keeps the food hot and prevents it from drying up. Instead of wasting stale bread, cut it into pieces, dip in a little sweetened milk and water, then place them on a slightly-greased tin, and bake in an oven till crisp. The result is delicious to eat with butter or cheese. To remove a fruit stain on a white dress rub the stained part well in a little paraffin, let it stand for an hour or so, and then put into soapsuds, and wash in the ordinary way. The mark should h...
