HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915

HOPE. To give way to despair is futile. Y\ hilst we breathe we may hope. Of course, it is often very hard to carry a high head or a smiling face when trouble assails us, but the effort must-be ma*de, or life is not Avorth living. Many people get despon dent when the)' suffer from such, common ills as rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lum bago, backache," sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jaun dice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. They do not know that the ailment is probably caused by a failure of the kidneys and liver to perform their work of neutralis ing and removing, by .the natural chan nels, uric and biliary waste poisonous matter from the body. The reason why Warner's Safe Cure has been so success fully employed in the treatment of the disorders named, since its introduction, thirty-five years ago, is that Warner's Safe Cure acts specifically upon the kid neys and liver, healing, soothing and stimulating those vital ...

Shire of Phillip Island and Woolamai.

Junior Technical School, . , At the State School on Thursday, 25th February. Mr. Donald Clark, chief inspector of technical schools, delivered a mosi interesting address on the establishment of a junior technical school at Wontha^gi. The meeting was of a representative char acter and numbered about 100. Mr. W. Abbott, chairman of school com mittee, occupied the chair. Mr. Clark dealt in an interesting manner with the great industrial advanc - ment of Gernuny, and churned that it was mainly owing to her splendid system of technical education.

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under this heading.—Ed.] (TO THE EDITOR "POWLETT EXPRESS.") [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915

Coi'respondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under this heading.-Ed.] (TO THE EDITOR "POWLETT EXPRESS. ") Slir,-When one of- the recently elected councillors addressed the rate payers, he remarked on the excellent state of the streets now, as compared with the condition when the Borough took them over. He was quite light as regards nearly all of our streets, but there is a glaring exception visible from the central part of the town.' I refer to the neglected state of the eastern part of -Watt-street. Most visitors to Wonthaggi take a walk round the Reservoir hill, and their remarks regarding the street are far from complimentary to the Munici pality. Plainly this unmade and neglected street damages the whole town. In addition the residents in this locality are not receiving a fair deal. Individual .councillors express sympathy, but that does not improve t-he road. We have paid rates year after year ; these rates help to pay off . '|oan monies...

Wonthaggi Dairy Produce . Company. SHAREHOLDERS' MEETING. Tlirf half-yearly meeting of tin shareholders of the above company was held in the Archie's Ceek hall on Wednesday. There was a fair attendance.' Mr. Koetsveld occu picd the chair. The chairman reported that the half-year just ended was the best experienced. Results were as great as any good season in the past, and this was more than satis f ctory considering the bad season and the war. Cjood prices ivere paid for cream - as much as id. per lb morp than factories in other ' districts were paying. A new and smaller boiler was being installed, which would effect a saving when ready for use. The question of water supply had proved trouble soips, but a new bore was being put d..wn which gave every prosr pecfc of being permanent, thereby solving the question of adequate . water supply. Supply of cream was beginning to fall off, bnt the quality of same was better than for some time past. The past six months proved a record output m...

WOUND IN THE BACK. HOW IT WAS SUSTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915

WOUND m THE BACK. HOW IT WAS SUSTAINED. A few British .soldiers have recently been invalided back from the fighting line. They are victims of the severe ?November weather. The overcoats of these men were plastered with. mud. They had fought in trenches sodden with rain. Their boots had sunk ankle deep in the mud; they had stood nearly waist deep' in water. Rheumatism had developed. They are but a few. Generally speaking, the health of our troops at the front is excellent, notwithstanding the cold and the rain. For this, much credit is due to the fine work of the Army Service Corps in the field. This organisation is won "derfully complete. Their convoys of motor lorries ac-r continuously at work between the railhead and the trenhces. Our troops in the trenches have abundance of food, tobacco, cigarettes, With such comforts, life is suportable. in the most trying curcumstances. As one man put it to me, ''This 'ere war's like a blooming picnic. Why in South Africa, ive had to use Dubbi...

A HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. VALUE OF BLUE-GUM LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915

A HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. VALUE OF BLUE-GUM LEAVES. In a late issue of tlie Otage, X.X. "Witness," X described how the blue- t gum leaves could be turned into a valu- . ablo veterinary remedy. J now pro pose to show careful housewives liow they can make a most efficacious and useful household remedy. When a patent medicine is advertised to cure all the ills flesh is heir to, one is in clined to view it with suspicion. Tho number of uses that the blue-gum de coction can bo put to would incline one to doubt, if one did not remember that it is a strong antiseptic, and allays ir ritation and inflammation, either exter nal or internal. Shortly after 1 lirst experimented with it I gave a bottle to a sawmill hand who had had his thumb nearly cut oil' by a circular saw. It cured his thumb, and he was an ?jxceedingly grateful man the next time I saw him. I had. told him that it could bo used safely internally for coughs and colds.

Volunteers for the Wav. MORE MEN WANTED. Our San Remo correspondent write; -The Philip Island and Woollamai Shire Council is very properly taking taking the lead in local efforts to raise funds to assist directly or in directly in the prosecution of the war, and especially the stimulation of en listment. The president has been authorised to convene publkfmeetings in furtherance of the object. It is of the utmost importance that additional recruits should be obtained, for the situation is more grava than has yet been realised by the people of Australia, upon whom there is a strong claim, if for 110 other reason becaus3 of their happy remoteness from the, present scenes of strife and devasta tion. New arrivals from England are never tirpd of impressing upon Australians that owing to the meagre cablegrams on which they have to vely for iinformation, they have not griped the real position. There is no avoid ing the fact that up to the presen the enemy, in consequence of hi-; superior nu...

THINGS THAT HAPPEN. STRANGE ASPECTS OF WAR [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915

THINGS THAT HAPPEN. STRANGE ASPECTS OF WAR An inspection of the account books of many old firms shows that during the Napoleonic wars the "books were kept by women. All. the male clerks were engaged at the war. In France the commercial work is now being almost wholly performed by women. In many cases ladies have volunteered to take charge of the counting ho uses of friends who are at the war. It is said that they are doing their work re markably well. A stranger walking through one of the principal streets in Dublin asked the way to the hospital. A witty Irishman, to whom the question was addressed, replied: "Give three cheers for Germany, and you will wake up there." ,
