A MISER AND HIS MONEY LEAVES SIX MILLIONS TO THREE BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
A MISER AND HIS MONEY LEAVES SIX MILLIONS TO THREE BISHOPS. The romance ol a Madrid miser, who died worth £0,730,000, but went about the streets in rags. Is unfolded by a letter from Paris this week. There died in Madrid a man about 00 years old, named Romngosa, who, In the opinion of his neighbors and few friends, was poor. He and his wife lived a miserable life. They both dressed almost in rags, and the old man spent most of liis tlmo in prayers in the churches. With the couple lived Homagosa's aged mother, who had an even more miserable appearance. The old wo man used to go every morning to the market to buy food, but generally she returned with her basket filled with detritus which she picked up on the ground in the market. What no ono over Imagined was that tiio miserable-looking Homagosa was one of the richcst, if not the richest, in Madrid, and that he pos sessed a wealth which is more con sidorable than that of the Diicliesse of Selviano, and that ho was a richer man than th...

THE MERCHANT SERVICE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
THE MERCHANT SERVICE MAN. When you've feted Tommy Atkins at the finish of the war, And he's had the credit-given which Ss due; When you've sung about Britannia and you've cheered for Johnny Tar, - Who has kept her ever mistress of the blue; When the nurses and the doctors and the coppors all have been Duly praised, and they'll deserve it, I adtnlt, Will you kindly then remember Mr. Mercantile Marine, Who has also helped and done his little bit? While your Johnny Tar is busy hold ing Billy's fleet at bay, Ic the metaphoric sunshine, be it said, Mr. Merchantman is tolling, making metaphoric hay, And he's working so that England may be fed. Iu his twenty-thousand tonners, in his cockle-shells and tanks; Or in aught a trifle larger than a tub; Full laden to the Plimsoll, he is worthy of your thanks Who supplies the Mother Country with her Krub. —Wiroless Operator Coates.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
FROM VAEIOUS SOURCES. Object-lesson to Welsh minors— Our office clock baa not struck for a week. Many stories are afloat in London about the language of the Australians at Gallipoli. One typical of hundreds is that three staff officers were asleep in a dug-out when an angry Austra lian woke them up and shouted, "Did you nick my kettle?" He was not a whit abashod when he saw that they wore staff ofllcers, but went away storming in the dark. Gallipoli is the place to be i If a man would prove his mottle, But it gets him wet as a snake, you bet, If you pinch his dizzy kettle; He's a red-hot chap in a bayonet scrap, As General Birdwood found blm, But friend and foe see his language flow In a shimmering mist around him. When Bartlett tells o£ the Dardan elles And the brave Australian ranker, With a flip of bis pen he paints the men, Each one as a top-size blanker: Don't take too much of the Bartlett tcuch As the truth come straight from Heaven; If Bill's rum larks get a hundred marks.

NEW HATS FOR OLD Headgear Conversions for the Economic Man. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
NEW HATS FOR OLD Headgear Conversions for the Economic Man. I I Enterprising hatters aro making a I novel appeal to the public in London. [ The Increased cost of raw materials has had a tendency to raise the price of new hats, and many careful men are "wearing the fashions of other years. "Why wear last season's hat?" runs a striking advertisement "I can turn it Into the latest mode for half a-crown.'' The author of the legend, In an swer to Inquiry, was quite ready to "mako good" his claim. "It's this way," he said. "No man really wears out his bat. He uses It (ill a subtle something tells him it has lost its style, and then he flings' It aside. I estimate that in most homes there are threo hats lying idle from lack of that littlo twist which would make them—well, chic.

LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, August 14, 1915. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
LONDON LETTER Carmelite House, London, August 14, 1915. Tlia weather! Always the weather! "Why do people In England everlast ingly talk about the weather?" a man in San Francisco wrote to an acquaint ance in London. "If you had the kind of weather we've been enduring lately you would wake up in the middle of the night to grumble at it," came the reply. I have long preached the de lights of the English climate, but I must admit that the past few days \ have been trying. The raiu continues, interspersed with samples of different kinds of non-rainy disagreeableness. Last night, for a short spell we had "the red sky at night" which we learn ed in our childhood's days was "the shepherd's delight." This morning, however, London was as dark and foggy at ten o'clock as though it wero October. The week-end was as op pressive as ever I have known it In London. I try to console myself by reading of the bad weather in New York, where seven died and twenty seven were prostrated in one after noon...

Professional 'Roo Shooters OUR AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 September 1915
Professional 'Roo Shooters OUR AUSTRALIAN SOLDIERS. A writer in one of the London Illustrated papers assures a large circle of English readers that the rea son the Australian soldiers at the Dar danelles shoot so well is because many of them earn their living at home as "professional kangaroo shooters," re ceiving a sum for each pelt they se cure, and n Government bonus for each scalp! The writer adds that the Australian "professional kan garoo shooter" used a Martini rifle, and has to shoot "quick and straight," because "the kangaroo is a shy ani mal and a quick mover." It will also be uews in the Commonwealth to learn, that most Australians eat the "smaller varieties of kangaroo, called wallabies," which are "really excel lent eating."

ROMANCE AND TRAGEDY SOLDIER AND RED CROSS NURSE Pathos of Disappointed Brides. Paris has been the scene of a real war romance which has just termin ated In merry peals of wedding hells. "Somewhere in Peckliam" a Miss Cisslo Leo went to school with George . Clssio and George lost sight of one another when their school days were over, but when the war came George joined the Lincolnshire Regi ment.

If she is carefully observant and adheres to these simple rules her striped dress cauuot fail to give her entire satisfaction and at the same time will be eminently becoming to I.et us go further afield and study economy from another direction. Iu addition to the economies which the majority of us are now practising with regard to food, daily expenditure, anddres-, there are other ways iu which the house wife may curtail her expenses. Household soap, for example, should alw ys be bought in suffi cient quantities to enable her to have a reserve over and above the weekly supply, and if bars of yellow soap are purchased aud cut into pieces, tbey should be put away in a box, the lid of which is kept partly open. If this is done the air reaches the newly cut sur face and hardens it, and the life of each square is consequently doubled. Housemaids should al ways be instructed to use what is sometimes ca...

Take lialf a-leaspoonfnl of the powder or two compressed tablets with a little water after your next meal, and see what a difference this makes. It will instantly neutralise the harm ful acid which now causes your food to ferment, giving rise to wind, heartburn, flatulence and many other unpleasant symptoms, and you will find that, provided you take a little bisurated magnesia immediately aftcrwaad, you can eat almost anyth...

Magnesia for Dyspeptics. Specialist Recommends It Instead of Drugs. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915
Magnesia for Dyspeptics. Specialist Recommends It Instead of Drugs. "Only those in constant touch with sufferers from indigestion And dyspepsia can fully realise the harm done l>3' the improper use of drugs and artificial digestants,'' remarked an eminent specialist rcccntly. "Per sonally I rarely advocate the use of drugs in the treatment of digestive or stomach troubles, for in prac tically every instance 1 have proved the underlying causc to be excessive acidity of the stomach and conse quent fermentation of the food con tents. Therefore, in place of the once widely-used drugs 1 invariably recommend the use &lt;if magnesia to neutralise the acidity and stop the food fermenting, and the wonderful results 1 have obtained during the (last three years convince me that there is no liner treatment for in digestion, dyspepsia, etc., etc. It must, of eour>e, be clearly under stood thai 1 do not employ Or advise the use of such forms of magnesia as citrates, acetates, sulpha...

A Short Story. A Tale of the Early Days. (By W.J.W.) The scene was a mining camp in New South Wales. A new rush had just started. Already several hundred men were on the field. The pioneer of'the rush was a man named Greystone. His daughter came later. She was a maiden of about 18 years. Mow and why she came no one seemed to know. She was a lovely girl and seemed strangely out of place amid such surroundings. However, she ap peared happy and contented with lier lot. Greystone had a rich claim and made a good pile. It was risky work sending the gold away as a gani; of bushrafitiers under the Icadcrshipof one Laverick frequently attacked the--gold convoy. Some time after coining to the place Grey stone met with an accident by a fall of earth and it proved fatal. What was to become of the girl. This was the great question- discussed at the store by Big Bourke. It was clear someone should look alter her. A new chum who was known by the name of Gentleman George offered to take charge of ...
