DON'T NECLECT A COMMON CASH OF PILES. IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
DON'T NEGLECT &nbsp; A COMMON CASE OF PILES. IT MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS RESULTS. &nbsp; When people generally understand that all such fatal diseases as Fistula, Ulcer of the Rectum, Fissure, etc., almost invariably begin in a simple case of Piles, they will learn the wis- &nbsp; dom of taking prompt treatment for the first appearance of this trouble. Doan's Ointment is unequalled for every form of Piles (Itching, Bleeding, Protruding, and Blind Piles), and hun- dreds of lives have been saved by us- ing this cheap, but effective, remedy right at the start, because at such times a single pot has often effected a pure, while in the old, deep-seated, chronic cases several pots are some time necessary. Here is a case: Mrs. E. Williams, George street, West Devonport, says:-"A member of my family had a very evere at- tack of Piles. We used all sorts of things, trying to ease the constant tor- ture, but nothing we got had the de- sired effect. Hearing good reports of Do...
SOLDIERS' SICK PAY CLAIM AGAINST A LODGE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 7 January 1919
SOLDIERS' SICK PAY CLAIM AGAINST A LODGE. In the Small Debts Court at Bro- ken Hill, Private B. Trezise, returned soldier of the A.I.F., sued the local branch of the Protestant Alliance Friendly Society for £22 odd sick pay, for the period he was lying sick from wounds received in battle. The secre- tary of the lodge said members re- cognised the notice of claim and were agreeable to pay it, but a resolution of the Grand Lodge said that any such payments would be misappropriation. Therefore the lodge could not nay. The solicitor for defendant raised the point that the court had no juris- diction in the matter. This was ad- mitted by the solicitor for plaintiff and by the magistrate, who, in giving his ruling that he had no jurisdiction, said he could not help expressing his disgust at the action of the Grand Lodge. If it were not for such sold- ier members as Trezise there possibly would now be no Grand Lodge. He was sorry he had to declare that the court had no jurisdiction, but ad...

EXTRAORDINARY MISBEHAVIOR. Seven girls who ran away from the Riddell (Vic.) Salvation Army home on New Year's Eve created some ex- citement at Riddell on Friday night. The girls were apprehended at Rosen- don, and were returned to Riddell by train on Friday night, in charge of a plain clothes constable. Upon their arrival, however, they &nbsp; refused to return to the home. The constable then tried to take them to &nbsp; the police station, but the local con- stable was absent from the town on duty. Thereupon the girls made an at- &nbsp; tack upon the police station and broke the windows of the office and &nbsp; residence. Mrs. Ward, the con- &nbsp; stable's wife, courageously presented a revolver and came to the assistance of the plain clothes constable, whom the girls were attacking with stones, and who was seriously battered. He, how- ever, finally got them into subjection, and marched them in front of him to the Army Home. The girls broke ...

KITCHENER'S DEATH WARSHIP WAS MINED. HOW THE HAMPSHIRE SANK. The "Manchester Guardian" pub- lishes additional details of the wreck of thc cruiser Hampshire. A-warrant officer among the survivors states that the ship sank in less than five min- utes. Lord Kitchener did not appear on &nbsp; deck, contrary to earlier reports. Everything aboard was lashed down owing to the great storm, and only &nbsp; one hatchway was open, which the escapees blocked. An attempt was made to open others, but the time did not suffice. The "Guardian's" informant was in- cluded in a party of 80 who clung to a raft for five hours. Seventy-six of &nbsp; these died or were swept off. The survivors were blown ashore, numb and bleeding, in a steep rocky inlet. Two other rafts were beached. There were only 12 survivors. The whole of the officers were lost. This survivor is satisfied that the warship was mined. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

MEAT AT 2D PER LB. A.W.U. CONFERENCE PROPOSAL. &nbsp; The biggest Labor Conference held in Australia is that of the Australian &nbsp; Workers' Union. This powerful body &nbsp; meets annually at the great building in Sydney known as "MacDonnell, House," so called after the name of one of the earnest, and able founders of the union. This year's conference will be held at the end of this month, and the agenda committee will have a gigantic task in arranging the order paper. There are hundreds of motions, some of them interesting, others humorous. The humor of the bushman and wandering shearer finds outlet at conference just as his heart's desire finds expression there. Among the &nbsp; items is a proposal to fix the price of &nbsp; meat at 2d per lb., that all shed hands be paid the same rate of pay &nbsp; irrespective of age, that shower baths be erected in all sheds for the use of employees, that 36 hours constitute a &nbsp; wee...

The sign has been partly de- stroyed three times, but the anti- conscriptionists state they will re- store it again. There is a "Yes" sign on a chimney at the old Beehive mine, and if this were removed harmony might result. A number of the Sydney suburbs are arranging, through officially c...
