Don't You Believe It. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

Don't You Believe It. Some say that chronic constipation cannot be cured. Don't you belieTe it. Chamberlain's Tablets for the stomach and liver have cured others-why not you? Give them a trial. They cost only eighteenpence. For Bala by Walker Bros., Bright; J. H Jones, Harrietville ; C.Lardi, Wandiligong; C. G. Goodman, Porepunkah; J. Ritchie, Buckland. It is stated that for the use of a certain totalisator at Randwicl: the A <J.C. were asked £7,000 for each machine, and per |cent. of the money accruing to the club from the turnover. On those terms, if the A.J C agreed to them (writes the "Sydney Referee '), shares in that totalis aioi would be worth possessing.

HOW FAST, DO BIRDS FLY? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

HOW FAST, DO BIRDS FLY? There is. nothing more wonderful. ,.in: Nature than, the power o£ flight possessed by birds, anil no subject .wjiicli. yields, more startling facts, up on . inv.estiga.tion. "The way of an. eagle in the air" is; one of those things of which Solo mon expressed himself ignorant; and tlj'ere is something truly marvellous iq the mechanism which controls the scythe-like, sweep, of wjngs peculiar tq most birds of, prey. Yet even. nat uralists. of. the first order have hod little or nothing to say about the power of flight in birds, while some of them speak on very insufficient evidence. Witness Michelet's statement that the swallow flies at the rate of 210 miles, an hour. Roughly, this gives. ug 1000 miles in four' hours, but: na turally,. even in its swiftest dashes, the swallow does n^t attain anything like this speed. But the Duke of Argyll is rather under than over, the mark when he computes the speed at more than 100. miles per hour. The mechanism of flight in...

Secrets of a Prince's Courtship America's Richest. Widow and Her Royal Suitor. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

Secrets of a Prince's C.qujrtship America's Richest. Widow and Her Royal Suitor. Will Mrs. William B. Leeds, one of America's richest widows and most [.beautiful women, marry Prince I Christophoros, the youngest brother of King Constantino of Greece? The question is being discussed with en ormous interest in society circles, and while there is no doubt about an engagement, it is open to ques tion whether a marriage will- ever take place. In fact, it is probable that Cupid was never so heavily , handicapped as in the case of Mrs. Leeds' romance. This is not due to any lack of de votion on the part of the Prince, who fell in love with the beautiful widow three years ago, but chiefly on account of Royal etiquette, which bars anyone not born in the. ruling caste from matrimonial alliances with rulers or prospective rulers. In other words, a commoner- cannot be come a Princess and be recognised by her- husband's family. As a romantic episode the court ship o£ Prince Christophoros leaves ...

Those Wooden Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

Those Wooden Soldiers. The drill sergeant had been vainly trying during the whole morning to lick into shape the last batch of re cruits. At last he gave it up in despair and, calling them to attention, he un burdened himself as follows: "Now, look here, my lads. When I was a little boy my mother gave me a present of a box of wooden soldiers. They were the delight of my life. All day long I played with them. Then, somehow, they got lost, and I was heartbroken. Life, I felt, had no fur ther interest for me. My mother did her best to comfort me, and finally said, 'Never mind, Harry, one of these days the wooden soldiers will come back to you.' "That, my lads, was years and years ago. But at last"-here the sergeant paused to allow his words to sink home-"and worse luck" another impressive pause - "her words have come true!" Mrs. Skim: Do your boarders pay promptly? Mrs. Syre: They did at first f "Why don't they now?" "They're got so fat they can't get their hands in their'pockets." Man...

DON'T FORGET MOTHER. "Tommies" Should Write Regularly Home. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 19 January 1917

DON'T FORGET MOTHER. "Tommies" Should Write Regularly Home. "I generally manage to write my nightly letter to my wife, though I fear the weekly one to my mother often gets missed." The words were spoken by an offi cer who had been a most excellent son and who had a real affection for his mother. His wife had two little girls to cheer her, but his mother, who had spent her very existence in his interests, had to sit in her lonely home day after day longing for a word from her boy, watching for the post that never came and, eventually, retiring to bed each night full of anx iety. That lad-and there are hundreds of the same stamp-did not mean to be neglectful of his mother. But her home was not his home. Mother's friends, doings and surroundings be longed to another age, and he did not realise that she would be just as in terested in hearing of his adventures as his wife would. It was thought lessness, that was all, that made him miss his weekly letter to the old lady, but he was treak...
