OPPOSING FORCES' " Why don't they use Lux?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the price, And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink Won't Shrink Woollens Lever Brothers Limited, Sydney.

SALVE OF SLEEP [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 30 January 1914

SALVE OF SLEEP Joy, Temperance, and Repose I Slam the door on the doctor's nose. This old saying was quoted with ap proval by Professor William Stirling, of Manchester—described by Sir James Crichton Browne as "the most brilliant exponent of modern physio logy"—in a lecture at the Barnes Hall of the Royal Society of Medicine, "Wimpole street, "W., last evening (re ports the "Daily News" of .November 28). Muscular fatigue, said the Profes sor, gradually used up the chemical reserves upon which our movements depended, and, in addition, poisonous by-products were formed which often remained to clog the machine and to act as toxins. Severe bodily exercise, lie declared, was incompatible with full digestive activity. "After dinner rest awhile" was part of the proverbial wisdom of Salerno. Mental fatigue greatly im paired bodily activity, and physical or muscular disease had a distinct effect. * on brain activity. The too ardent but untrained Alpine climber, the enthusiastic but unseas on...

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 30 January 1914

TWO WOMEN. From Mrs. M. Darcy, 163 St. Leonard's-road, Ascot Vale, Vic toria. " Some years ago, I began to suf fer from various liver and kidney troubles, arising no doubt from a severe cold I contracted about that time, and which nearly prostrated me. From thence on I experienced acute pain in the back and sides, and under the shoulder blades. The slightest pressure on the liver would cause me intense pain. I suffered like this for a long while without any prospect of relief, I having tried so many re-1 medics without avail. As a last re source I decided to try a course of Warner's Safe Cure, which had been highly recommended to me by friends who had derived great benefit from taking the medicine. After taking a few bottles of Warner's Safe Cure my health improved rapidly, and I was soon effectually cured and free from all the pain and discomfort which has assailed me for so many years."

LONDON PROBLEM [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 30 January 1914

LONDON PROBLEM No confirmation of the report re ferred to at a meeting of the London County Council—that a great scheme is in preparation for tho amalgamation of all the electric supply companies in London—could be obtained by a ''Daily News" representative who, on Novem ber 26, made inquries at tho County of London Electric Supply Company. The Bill which the company is pro moting for postponing the date at which the London County Council may purchase the electric companies has, our represntative was informed, noth ing to do with the question of amal gamation. Despite these denals, the question of the future of London's sup ply is admittedly causing increased anxiety and interest. There are thirteen private companies and 15 local authorities producing elec tricity in the Council area. The total capital of the companies is about four teen millions, that of the local autho rities about six and a half millions. In addition the borough councils arc con stantly increasing the capital the...

NEW IMPRESSION [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 30 January 1914

NEW IMPRESSION | Some interesting Impressions by a Canadian visiting: England are given In the "Morning Post." My first impressions of Englamd vtere gained through a oar window, he writes. Now, I knew all about the smallness of the fields, their fresh green, the hedges, the softly rounded trees; we Britons from overseas are trained to expect these, and the Eng lish countryside is astonishingly fa miliar to us at the first glance. But one thin'g did give mo a start— certain very large fields, brown, and bare, ready, I suppose, for their win ter snow-blanket. What struck me was partly their great size, but more tli§ exquisite neatness and finish with which they had been ploughed and harrowed. Mine is a country of hun dred-acre farms, with fields neither so large as your larger nor so small as your smaller fields, and of a husband ry limited not so much by deficiency of knowledge as by the lack of hands. But my first real start came south of the Thames, when my train was bearing me Bou...

He pointed out at the annual general meeting of the British Radium Cor poration that radium pure and simple would be dangerous to give patients in doses, because it could not be elimin ated from the system, but the chemi cals which could be obtained from it, diluted with water so as to' make a solution, would be excellent in benefit ing patients, and would also give the shareholders in the corporation plenty of monetary profit. ■■■WW—IWUMMm—
