THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914

THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. There are some in this world who are compelled to tarry at home. The great race of life goes on, and they, are left behind; they. are too weak to run. . They have nothing to do with the toil of the brain; their work is alf with the heart. But what a work that is l The toils of the hand and brain are nothing to it; these yield a solace to their en ergy, but the sad heart has only to bear. It is harder to bear than to do. I may be rudely jostled in the race, but the race itself gives an excitement that makes me forget my pain. I am there, at least, in the company of my fellow men. But to tarry at home, to' wai? passive under the shadow of God, to have nothing to do but the burden of one great cross; this is the trial of. life -this is the trial of love. So many young men have emigrated to the United States and Canada that the armies of Austria-Hungary are short of recruits to thd extent of about 100,000.

To-day's Fashilns are seen in the sash, the sleeves, the collar and the chemisette, and the trimming motif. These new changes are delightfully fe mniine and give a soft fussiness that is always more becoming to the greater majority of women than the severely plain, untrimmed type of clothes. Picturesque Sashes.--The true hareon note is reproduced in a single sash end hanging straight at the centre frost or at the side, weighted with a handsome adorumeutl or tassel.

NEW MINING FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914

NEW MINING FIELD Mr E. MoMillan writes as follows no the new field that is being opened up in the Genoa district : The locality of the find is about N.E. of thle Wingan bridge. The first lease is situated about 1. miles from the 73 mile peg on the Orbost-Genoa road. This show is small and poor. There is another show about 1] miles south of this right on top of Stony Peak, which is the highest peak on the range. This reef is also small, but shows gold in mortar test. The country rock is gran ite, and the reefs are running east and west and underlie to south. In my opinion the reefs are lenticular and very short. None of them have been picked up far, east and west. The richest reef is a gossan ironstone which shows traces of mineral and, at a depth of say 50 feet, I think the ores will prove refractory. I do not think there will be anything found here for a company to handle. There may be good Equibs found further afield that may be of value to small co-operative working parties but a...

SECRET OF LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 27 February 1914

SECRET OF LONG LIFE LIFE for March contains a special article of exceptional interest describing the wonderful operations performed by Sir Arbuthnot W. Lane- a famous London surgeon-in short-circuiting the intestines as a cure for extreme constipa tion and disease due to it. Then Dr Lane set out to find some thing that would tak.' the poisonous waste products out of the intestines without interfering- with the natural functions of the body. Most people can realise what such a discovery would mean to countless thousands who stffer from constipation. The article in LIFE tells how Dr Line made a great, yet simple, dise v.cy.f namely, that purified paraffin oil, speci ally refined for internal use, would do what no other oil in the realm of Nature would do-that is, would act as a per fect internal lubricant, and remove waste products without acting as a purgative and weakening the natural digestive fluids. After Dr Lane's Euccessful experi ments physicians immediately began to prescribe...
