SWAN HILL JOCKEY CLUB. ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

SWAN HILL JOCKEY CLUB. ANNUAL RACES. The annual race meeting of the Swan Hill Jockey Club was held yesterday. The attendance was poor, only £15 13s. being taken at the outside gate. The special train from Kerang in the morning was poorly patronised, and the club will prob ably lose on it. The races produced nothing exciting. The scratch.ng pen had been freely used, and the heaviest field for the day was in the Hack Race, which produced eight starters. The keenest contest was witnessed in the Flying Handicap, and the finish was a close one. This and the Hack Race was a boil over for the "books." The successful conduct of the meeting was very materially assisted by Messrs. D. M'Lennan and W. L. Kelly. who were active stewards throughout. TIhe judges were Messrs. H. R. Cameron and A. G. Mackenzie, (A.nd they found no difficulty in carrying out their important duty. Mr. T. Wilkins the old veteran, was in his old place as starter, and Mr. C. Picken acted as clerk of course.

The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," - CHAPTER XIV. At the Cottage. Meanwhile, the returned heir wait ed in the miniature drawing-room. He moved about his close quarters like a Polar bear in his cage-alternately puzzled, angry, miserable; hopeless. Netta loved him, he told himself. She had loved him before the great shock of a contest for.her, more un scrupulous, more terrible than ti?e struggle of two men loving one girl is wont to be in civilised times.. She had loved him still when he had to make his confession-a confession not only of the evil accruing to his own passions, but to those of his rival. But had she ever been again the same bright, lovely Netta of the first happy days at the farm? "Never," he thought. She had seemed to recover from the first shock of his revelations. In any case, she had submitted to his wishes-had given her promise to be his wife; nor had she-spotless, innocent of all worldly desires--'been in the least de ...

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN A?N ASTONISHING ESCAPE Of the many astonishing accidents and'lucky escapes which have been re corded from time to time (says "The Daily News and Leader" of December 31), that which occurred to Lily Alden at Grimsby yesterday,. probably holds I a place of its own. Miss flden, who is a printer's as sistant. was crossing the railway line at the-Pastuire street crossing when a passenger train from Hull was.due. The road gates were closed, and the girl made use of the hand gates. *She was on the line used by the approachlng train, when,, without a mioment's warning, she fainted and fell to the ground. It is exceedingly fortunate for Miss Aldern that the signalman in the nearby box happened to be looking in her direc tion and that he was just in time. to put the signals against the oncoming train and run out a red flag at the window of his box. The driver applied the emergency brakes, and the tramin was brought to a standstill within a few feet of the un conscious ...

Not Worth While. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

Not Worth While. It is certainly not worth while. for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not incapacitate them from performing their duties, but which decidedly pre vent them from doing their best. Rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica. neuralgia, blood disorders, anaemia, Indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles are complaints which afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused by retention of urio and biaay poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their functions. Warner's-Safe Cure is a, kidney and liver remedy, which has been successful In so many cases that sufferers £Iom any of the complaints ab...

SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

SCROOGfiE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." That Christmas is no longer a fes tival, but a nuisance, has long been a heresy privately held by many. But with the dreadful example of Scrooge before them they have dared to noth ing more than dark mutterings. They are of those who give, but without joy, and who let the dogs loose on carollers if the street is so dark chat the dogs cannot be recognised. But this year-it is a fact so signifi cant that the sounds of the knell should be-mentioned to all those who claim they retain the true spirit of Christmas-the heretics are publicly stating their heresy. "The Christmas box," said one of these blasphemers to a "Daily News" representative, "ought to be sup pressed. We have had enough of this blackmail, and the .risk held over us of being denoinced as curmudgeon, a Scrooge, by all the leeches who have ever said 'Good morning' to us throughout the year. It is time it was stopped. It is senseless. "If a man who is employed by some body else ...

I indeed seek, these places, and confess an incurable affection for romance in my thdughts and deeds.

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

RADIUM'S WAR ON' CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED While there is as yet no doctor who will say that radium is a "cure" for cancer (says "The Daily Express"), there is among those who have had ex perience of the treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope has received what to a non-medical mind seems like a very wonderful confirmation in results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Home connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence than has been obtained in the home. Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the rare and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients might awai...

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 5 March 1914

PRICES AND WAGES FOOD PRICES INDEPENDENT OF PAY (BY L. G. Chlozza Money, in "Dally News and Leader.") ' Staring out at me from the columns of a daily newspaper, publ!shed as the considered utterance of a member of Parliament, . I see a statement to the effect that if the wages of British work men were doubled to-morrow, the change would be of no value to them because the prices of commodities would rise in the same proportion, and there fore they would be no better off than before. It is necessary to take serious note of this statement, because I find it is the expression of an opinion which Is widely held up and down the United Kingdom at the present time. This opinion has gained ground because of the reaction in prices which has taken place during the last half generation. Because that rise in prices has can celled the value of the rise in wages in the same period, people have.Jumped to the conclusion that higher wages and hlgher prices are necessary concomi tants of each other.
